"Everything went fine in the appointment. When I inspected the work, thought it was OK. However the more I looked at it after the fact it definitely could have been" better. The caulk lines were a lot larger than were previously there and somewhat uneven. Not bad enough to ask for return but probably wouldn't go with them again.

"They were punctual the tub looks amazing. The fine print of the deal does say extra for stripping. Not knowing anything about tubs I think it would be helpful if" they asked for a picture of the tub in advance so they can advise the extra cost before being on-site. My 82 year old dad was a bit upset about the extra charge, so maybe they can figure this out beforehand. Otherwise the end result was beautiful.

bathtub refinishing

Bathtub Liners and Refinishing

Over time, the bathtub can begin to show signs of wear with stains, scratches, a dull finish or other ugly marks. Bathtub refinishing is an option that can return a bathtub or shower enclosure to like-new appearance.

Gone are the days of a large, jetted bathtub being a must-have for a master bathroom.

Dear Angie: We're remodeling our bathroom. Which is better to help increase the resale value of our home: a tub, a shower and one sink; or a big shower and two sinks? – Cal Z., Lakewood, OH

Refinishing your bathtub instead of replacing it can freshen up your bathroom and save you money.

OK - terminology issue here. The "shower pan" is a collection liner than underlies the shower floor itself, and is designed (if built and plumbed right) to trap any leakage from the shower floor and route it to the same floor drain pipe. Example image here, copper in this case - 

http://indigochreblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/img_0835.jpg

It sounds like your are saying the shower floor or base unit failed - likely a fiberglass or plastic shower, which commonly fail due to incomplete support under them. This can be repaired if fiberglass, but is not usually done unless just microcracking, as it is hard to find an expert - usually you have to have a car body fiberglass specialist or a surfboard repair expert do it, and the color will not match perfectly unless you get a new gelcoat over the entire base unit. Cost about $300-500, ASSUMING the material can be repaired - true fiberglass can, thermoplastic can sometimes be welded but anyone's guess how long it will last without cracking again, plastics like PVC can rarely be fixed so they will hold someone standing on them. Any sort of repair is likely to crack again, because you have done nothing to remove the cause of the cracking which is standing on a base that is not fully supported over its full extent. Some cheepo or desperate plumbers try injecting non-pressuring type expanding foam underneath to improve the support - this does a great job of supporting it but unfortunately supports mold, so starts stinking in short order as a rule.

The normal fix is to remove and replace it, because once it is out there is no sense in putting a damaged one back in for the small increment in cost. Removing it means taking the shower wall liners or the bottom row or two of tile out so you can get the new base unit into place (because they overlap it), then replacing them. So, the $3000 range indicated is indicative of this type of job, which typically runs from a very low of around $1500-2000 for an identical base unit, to more typically $3-5,000 depending on whether a shower enclosure or tile walls. Of course,when the new one is put in, it is CRITICAL that it be fully supported - this means rubbing plumbers rouge or similar marking substance on the bottom, test fitting it, and then lifting it out and checking that all the stiffener ribs and support pads made contact with the pan, and making adjusments as necessary until it has full contact, then standing in it and rocking back and forth to check for any points not making full contat and fixing them.

The $10,000 plus numbers you got must have been for entire shower replacement down to the joists and studs, and the $30,000 range number would be typical for a full bathroom remodel with new shower or shower/tub and doors and surround, wall finishes, vanity, sink, toilet, and flooring and door.

Bathtub Refinishing reviews in Chicago

Went well--We changed the scope of service a couple of times (as I was thinking things through). at the office was helpful and patient through this effort. She sent a list describing exactly what we needed to do to prepare (e.g. remove the shower door). Our service provider arrived right on time and finished on schedule. ...More Note that this is not an easy process--chemicals are involved, and a nasty smell remains for a few days. However, he took safety precautions (vented outside) and cleaned everything up before he left. Gave us a sheet with info on how to care for the tub. Very helpful!
- KARIN O.

The primary reason I can't give an "A" rating is because the service was rescheduled and it took over a month from initial call to completion of service. The individuals were very polite and did good work. I would use them again, but if you are in a hurry to get your work done, you might want to look elsewhere.

We just bought another investment property and are renovating one of the units. With a 100 year old building, came a 100 year old cast iron tub in very poor shape. We had debates over whether we should salvage the tub or just buy a new one. I went out and obtained a couple quotes and decided to go with ARK even though they were slightly more expensive. ...More I could not be happier with my decision. I am beyond thrilled by ARK's work, as they allowed us to salvage an original cast iron tub! The bathtub looks brand new - I almost couldn't believe it. Everyone at ARK was professional, responsive, ontime, friendly. I will definitely be using them again for other properties.

Since having the work done I have noticed a chip in the finish and some grainy areas underneath the surface. I have called them 4 times concerning this and no one will return my call.

Very meticulous in preparation. Coat of finish is even and bright. So much better then replacing the tub. On time and called when on his way to our home.
Scheduler was very detailed in explaining what to expect from the process and cost. A reminder call was given.
Our tub is now a bright and beautiful white.

I called on 7/30/2015 to get an estimate to refinish a bathtub at a property we manage. I was told it was going to be about $300. I liked the price, so I asked if they will be able to come out the next day. She told me she will call me back to confirm the next day appointment. Just a few mins later, I got a call back confirming the appointment for 7/31/2015 ...More @ 1 PM. (I did ask her to call me 10 mins before showing up, because I was going to be at our office, just 10 mins away)
The next day around 1 PM, called to get an update; I was told it was going to be pushed back to 3 PM.
3 PM came, and I got a phone called from a man that said he would now be there at 4PM, because he was running late from another appointment.
At 4:30 PM (while waiting at the property) I called again, to get an ETA, and I was told 15 mins away.
After calling from my personal cell number around 4:50, I was now getting NO response. I left the property at 5 PM, and the work was never completed.

the worker was excellent. He covered the walls and doors. he used plastic to sealed himself in the bathroom to prevent the materials he used from going throughout my house. the job lasted from 9:30 to 4:30. The tub looks new. I am very please with the work.

My contractor forgot (despite my repeated reminders) to hire someone to put graffiti protective film on the new glass windows and door for my storefront. New glass gets acid etched almost immediately in my neighborhood and I didn't want even one night to go by without it. The new front door was going in today and my contractor still hadn't ...More found anyone, so I checked Angie's List and called this company. They were in the neighborhood and came by in an hour, and put film on the new door. I didn't realize it until they told me, but the film doesn't need to be replaced if its acid-etched. It just needs to be washed with warm water and a blue sponge (anything else will abrade it)
