Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Reviews

"They came out the first time and did the

. Within weeks it started to peel. They came back to look at it and told me that it was my fault because there was a leak in the faucet. (Why would that have been noticed before the job was started?) I had a plumber come and tighten up all the fixtures. He even told me that such a miniscule drip should never have caused the peeling and that the finishing material was probably inferior.

came out again and repaired the finish, and said that in order to be sure it would be alright I needed to keep a rubber glove over the faucet, which I did. It started peeling again. I called

"Before they stepped foot in my house, everything was golden. Prompt response, great scheduling. Actually getting someone here to do the work and then the quality of the work that happened once they arrived? Another story.
First, my scheduling DID fall during Chicago's snowpocalypse. We had to reschedule because their contractor didn't have a snow-ready truck. That's fine. The second date, bad weather hit again and I asked the contractor to not come for his safety. Finally, someone arrived.
During the work, I could barely breathe. When I inspected the job when the technician was done, there was significan bleed-through from the old grey grout. There was bubbling, poor coverage, and orange peel effect. I was told "that's the best I can do." Four hours later, my neighbors started to complain about the smell and I had a headache to end all headaches. I called Electrobond and spoke directly with the owner,
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. She'd never heard of this kind of smell ever before. While hard to believe, all I know is my condo association was p*****. Seems the technician neglected to tell me to NOT turn on the exhaust fan in the bathroom to help clear the smell as that pumps it into the rest of my building.
When I called, I also informed them that I was unhappy with the quality of work as the appearance just got worse and worse as the materials dried. I took pictures and sent them to the company. 24 hours later, I had not heard back, so I had to call. I got them to have the tech come back out to fix the issues. A week later, the tech shows up without the necessary supplies because the company told him it was "just a few spots" instead of the whole job had to be redone. Which sucks because I had left ALL of the masking up in the bathroom and I'd been showering at the gym for a week to make it easier on him when he came back. I got to listen to the tech argue with the company about money and not being paid (in my living room) and admittedly, I feel for the tech. He has to pay for his own gas and when he's not given the proper job details, he's the one who loses.
The job was finally rescheduled for today. Tech shows up and things look mostly like they should. I guess. I'm not happy that this is what $900 gets me. I could have had the whole shower tile demo'd and retiled for less than that.
I still haven't received a single call from the company to apologize for my inconvenience -- this project has gone on for a month and with less than optimal results. I can't recommend that you use them as there's no way to ensure the quality of their work. It would appear that they use independent contractors to perform all of their jobs and I had 3 different people scheduled to do my work. Who knows who you'll get.

"I called the office for an appointment and we picked a date.

helped me with all my questions over the phone.
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
came out to do the reglazing. Our tub had been reglazed many years ago, so it needed extra attention. In addition to being very kind, polite and interesting,
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
is a real craftsman. He did meticulous prep work and a beautiful white reglazing with adding the bathmat finish. We are thrilled with that bathmat finish...no more bath mats to clean/replace... The bathtub sparkles and is so smooth. We also hired
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
to come back after the reglazing was cured (24 hours) to do the caulking for us. Another excellent job. From start to finish this was a great experience with a wonderful finished product (no pun intended:)

"Professional and courteous overall. Considerate about noise, smell, mess (cleaned up thoroughly) and even took into consideration how to avoid potentially blowing a fuse in this old building -- which I've done many times using less powerful equipment. Nice people to do business with.

"Excellent service. The technician was very careful and taped areas not to be refinished. He cleaned up his trash and was very neat with the work. The tub looks like a new one and it was much cheaper than buying a new one! There is one word of caution for this kind of work--the smell is very strong and lingered a couple of days. Since the apartment was vacant, it was not a problem, but I can imagine it would be difficult to live in a unit when this work is done.

"My first call to this company almost turned me away as
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, a salesman, conveyed that unless they did the entire tub, the repairs wouldn't last a month! This info was corrected
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
who was genuinely helpful in conveying a hopefully more accurate picture and giving me a quote by phone. The first repair person came out two months ago and did what appeared to be an excellent job of refinishing my tub bottom, which looked beautiful. The fumes, for which I was unprepared were horrendous, however, and lasted three days. I also found that my bathroom was covered with a film of very fine granules which did not wipe away easily. Additionally, the repair person generously took it upon himself to fill in parts of the space between tiles which were chipping, which would have been terrific, except that he used white rather than beige grout, so it did not match the rest of the tub lining. When I contacted
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
,
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
had a different repair person come out to clean up the film of grittiness from my counters; I decided to allow the tile grout to remain as is.
Approximately one month after the job was completed, when I returned from being out of town for two weeks, during a shower I experienced the bottom of the tub coming apart. It appeared that a plastic film had been glued to the bottom of the tub and that it was beginning to come unsealed and split into pieces. I contacted
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
again and
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
could not have been more sincere in his regrets.
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
came out to inspect and discovered that the repair person had apparently skipped a step in the repair process, hence the fact that it was deteriorating. They promised to re-do it again at my convenience. I asked for a 15% reimbursement for my troubles, which allegedly is being sent. This week the job was re-done, this time with a hose to extricate the fumes, so the horrid smell only lasted 24 hours instead of three days, a considerable fact in light of the cold temps currently outside. The job once again looks very nice and hopefully, this time it will be a permanent fix. It was indeed a hassle to have to have four appts instead of one to get this job completed in a two month period instead of a single afternoon. In all honesty, the people at the
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, especially
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and

"If I had any idea it would be this easy to refinish my bathtub, I would have done it 5 years ago - literally.
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
priced the job for me via email, providing a quote sheet with all the items we discussed.
On the day of service, the technician arrived, walked me through the process, and began working. My apartment is small and he was very respectful of my space and let me know when he was coming & going from the truck. The space was taped-off during the dusty procedures and was ventilated properly during the glazing. I was given clear instructions on care - both immediate and long-term. The actual job even came in under-budget!
Couldn't be happier!

"If you are someone who likes a short and sweet review- you owe it to yourself to meet with Cartage and get a quote from them. They did great work and are fully trustworthy.
If you like more details, read on...
I received 3 quotes to perform extensive work on my house. As you see from the list above, I had a ton of work done. Because of the strong reviews on Angie's List, I included Cartage in the 3 quotes I received. Like one of the other reviewers said previously, at hello you realize
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
are good people which is hugely important to me.
Their price came right in the middle of the three quotes. Because of the reviews and the impression they left during the quote process, I elected to go with them.
The four things I judge a contractor on most are- do they do good work, was their quote accurate, are they flexible, and are they clean/respectful?
To answer those questions...
They did a great job with all of the projects listed above. I could go into detail about each project but just know each one was completed as expected. The house looks fantastic now!
Their quote proved to be accurate and they did not add additional charges or anything like that.
Additionally, they were very patient with me as I changed my mind several times on the work I wanted done.
I did not live in my place during the construction but I do share an entrance with my neighbor in the townhouse next door. Cartage was sure to vacuum the entrance each day which kept my neighbor very happy.
Overall, great experience and I would absolutely recommend them.

"Due to delays in my home rehab, we started this project much later than initially planned. I contacted
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
who assured me that they would honor the coupon and the price. The only charge I had was a travel charge which was a reasonable $15.
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and his assistant (I forgot his name) arrived within the time window that I was quoted. They also scheduled the work for a Sunday afternoon since the following Monday was a holiday. Both arrived prepared to work with all of their materials and tools.
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
explained the process to me , they set up their equipment and got right to work.
Within 4 hours, my tub looked brand new. The color, recommended by
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, was perfect (not too white) and it matched my new tiles. The pair made sure that my house wasn't covered under layers of dust, they cleaned up after they were done, they kept me informed at each step of the way and they were able to make my partially finished bathroom look much better.
Chicago Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
made helpful suggestions and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'll try to post pictures of the Before and After. Bottom line - I was very pleased with the results and as I have another bathroom to r
remodel in the near future, I plan to schedule A&M to return and complete that job as well.
