"I had contacted through Angie's list a couple months earlier requesting some information on cost. I got an email from " of explaining not only the cost but the precautions I should take with a plumber and a flooring contractor prior to him doing any work. Later, I found an Angie's Deal for a non-slip tub bottom for no extra cost and scheduled them for June 9. was here exactly when they said he would be, and after a brief inspection of the location, etc. of the bathroom he went to work. I was told it would take about 4 hours to complete and it was just short of 4 hours when they were done. The Tub/Shower looked great!!! explained the 5 year warranty and how to care for the tub (nothing special - just don't use abrasive cleaners), cleaned up and was gone. I personally think they did a fantastic job and we have gotten many compliments on the new "look". .

"The technician showed up on time (within the window allowed) and got right to work. He was careful with the things in my home and stripped the peeling prior-refinishing" off the clawfoot quickly. He answered my questions and only had two very small flaws in the refinishing (I'm extremely particular - I doubt anyone else would have ever noticed). It was a painless process from start to finish.

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.

Traditional bathtubs often present a risky situation for aging seniors or people with mobility issues.

Replacing bathtubs with walk-in showers is growing in popularity, due to folks living in their homes longer.

Remodeling - Kitchen & Bathroom

Options abound when shopping for a new bathtub, whether taking on a complete bathroom remodel or just cleaning up the room's 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 - 


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 Madison


Great! He was highly professional, called as promised, and even showed up early! The tub that was refinished was in very poor condition, tens of cleaning products hadn't managed to remove excessive stains and hard water build-up. I am amazed at the results! Also, he was very good at explaining to me how to take care of the tub to keep-up the new ...More finish. Oh, and the job came with a 5 year warranty!
- Jessica W.

This franchise is locally owned and operated. The owner came to my home to give me the estimate; his wife made appointments and answered all my questions on the phone. The person who did the installation arrived early in the day and worked hard all day. He seemed to be genuinely committed to leaving me with a quality product that was also what I wanted. ...More I was particularly pleased that he took the time/made the effort to re-install an existing grip-bar, and he did it better than it had been before. At the end of the day, I was (and still am) delighted. He refused a tip, though I now wish I had pressed harder.
- Rita H.

Overall, it was excellent! I communicated with numerous times over the phone. Although I know he is busy, he always took ample time to communicate with me and answered my questions thoroughly. I was very impressed with the communication I had with him. He arrived right on time and got the job done in the time he had estimated. ...More He even took time during the process to explain to me what he was doing. The end product is amazing. He noted a small area that would be unrecognizable to us, but that he was not 100% satisfied and cut $50 from the price. Whatever it was, it was not noticeable to me - and I notice small details. He did great clean-up and follow through to tell me how to maintain the tub. He guarantees his work and it is well worth the cost.
- Sarah T.

They took out the old surround and replaced it with the one sheet walls in 2 bathrooms. They then put in new tube liners. They did absolutely excellent work and were very efficient!

They arrived on time for the original estimate and for performing the installation. I was impressed with the final result - it really updated my bathroom. This was the most expensive option of those I checked - but I believe it does look better than the other options I considered. The company and staff were responsive and professional.
- Valerie M.

Tub looks very nice and clean. Could have been a little more detail-perfect around the drain but overall pleased. Easy to do business with. Wish I was given a guarantee certificate since I am moving and would like to assure new owners of the longevity of the finish.
- Mary F.

I am very pleased with both the finished product and the installation experience. I love that it only takes one day! I am happy with the look and easy care of the liner and surround. Also the bottom surface of the tub liner is non-slip without being rough.
I received a lot of good information when came out to measure ...More my tub and prepare an estimate. He answered all my questions. handled the scheduling and my payment questions in a courteous and timely manner. The installer did a good job repairing a water-damaged wall before installing the surround and was careful about cleaning up after the installation was complete. This unit greatly improves the look of my bathroom. I am happy to recommend them.
