"I contacted several different companies.
was not the least expensive but I was interested because they use a non-toxic product.
showed" up on time and started work early in the morning, took a short break for lunch, and worked through till early evening in order to get both bathtubs done in the same day. He also rearranged his schedule so that he could accommodate us before we had to go out of town. I was very pleased with the results. We live in an old house and the bathtubs were looking pretty awful - the glaze was completely worn away and the tubs looked gray and dingy. Now they look brand-new! Although the product was non-toxic, it did smell terrible despite the ventilation tube that
used, so I was glad to go out of town and leave it to dry for a few days. Overall I was very happy.

"Very Well. This tub has been redone before and did not come out well. Devine Coatings did a great job removing the old layers and applying the new finish.

"I had initially planned to use another company and had scheduled an appointment. Then I remembered to use Angie's List to check them out. I noticed there weren't many reviews" and hadn't been with Angie's very long. Also, when I called them they didn't seem to be very professional and didn't come out to check the job. So I canceled and looked on Angie's List for other options. I found New Beginnings and contacted them.
, the owner, was much more professional based on the extensive number of questions pertaining to the job, then she came over the next day to check it out further, This allowed her to assess the job more completely. So even though the job cost more (by about 100.00) through Angie's List there was a 60.00 discount offer. From the time she arrived in the morning, right on time, I appreciated the way she took care to cover the floors wherever she went. Throughout the job they were very courteous and considerate of my mom when she needed to go to the bathroom (she's 94).
also extended to me the courtesy of taking off old glass door frames and didn't charge me for it. She also cleaned old tile, again as a courtesy. In the kitchen they made sure to cover the shelves. They worked continuously throughout the day as they went through the process of prepping and then applying materials. The job came out beautifully. The tub and sink looks brand new.
is meticulous about her work. You could see it in the way she attended to every detail. Also her warranty was better then the other company, she gives a 5 year warranty and told me if there were any problems at any time to contact her. Thanks to
and her team for an excellent job.

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.

was very respectful and personable - something that seemed to be lacking in others who bid for the job. But best of all is the finished product. Our 1915 old claw foot tub which was hideous is now a perfect specimen of a rescued antique. We can't praise

They arrived on time. They prepped the tub to refinish, protecting the drains. The provider refinished the tub and caulked the tub. They cleaned up after themselves and were professional. Overall great experience. We did have a tool fall in the tub and chipped the enamel, but this is minor and our fault. We will use again if necessary. They included a guarantee!

He was prompt, courteous, and reasonably priced. He did the work very quickly (only about 2 hours) and was helpful in diagnosing the issues we were having with the overflow drain. The job was painless and fast and our tub now looks brand new! I would definitely work with him again.
