"With the wounds still fresh from a recent major bathroom remodel that did not go as expected, we wanted a refresh of our second bathroom but did not want to spend a lot of money or" invest a lot of time.
was the perfect solution!
explained the process on the first day and with only one minor issue, completed the job in the 2 days that was estimated. At the end of the process, we have a bathroom that has a new and different look, at the fraction of the cost of a remodel. The transformation is amazing! It was clear that

Bathtub 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.

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.

The work went well. The provider did a very nice job on my tub. He also caulked around it very nicely. He also put in bath strips at no extra cost to prevent me from falling. The provider was very professional and he had a nice personality.

was on time and did a great job. The paint material used to refinish the shower had an extremely strong chemical odor- it wasn't possible to ventilate the area very well, so that was the only downside.

He showed up on time. He had an assistant who he was also training. They were both respectful and courteous. The work was pretty labor intensive and they completed the job that evening. I will say that people should be aware of the fumes. They were pretty overwhelming at times. The workers used an exhaust fan and it did help. However, the house smelled like the chemicals for a few days. The end result is a stunning refinish so it was worth it. I'd use them again.

Everything went smoothly from beginning to end.

called me and setup the appointment within a few days of when I talked to him. The technician showed up on time, and went right to work. It only took a couple hours to finish the job. They tape off all the walls surrounding the tub so there isn't any overspray. The only drawback was that the products have a very strong odor, and they need to ventilate the large exhaust fan out a nearby window. The problem was that it was very cold that day, and we had a window wide open to allow for the vent they stuck out the window. And the fumes lasted all night. Although the bathroom door was kept closed, the odor was quite strong. My recommendation is to have this done when the weather is nice so you can have your windows open to ventilate the house. However, the finished product is gorgeous.

came the next afternoon and caulked all around the tub, and said we could use it the next day. It is amazing how beautiful the bathroom looks with a beautiful, shiny white tub.

We had a wonderful experience working with Bath Doctor to have the cast iron tub and shower walls lined at our home.
Cleveland Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
came and gave us an estimate and was able to work our project in within two weeks so that we wouldn't have any construction going on after we moved in. The two men who did the work were very friendly and knowledgeable, they did a great job cleaning up after the work was finished. Most important of all, our bathroom looks amazing! We will definitely use this company again!

and his son spent about two and a half days reparing and glazing the tile walls and tub in my bathroom. While here they were polite and professional. At the end of the job, the bathroom looked great other than some drip

on the tile walls in about ten different areas. I asked

if he could fix this, and he said it would smooth out as it cured over the next couple of weeks. I still paid him given his good track record on Angie's List. The drip

Overall I am still happy with the job. The tile walls look about 10x better than they did before, at a cost much less than replacing the tiles and tub. Though when you look closely, you can see the drip
