"Polite, responsive and professional. He taped (masked) the drain and overflow (some refinishers remove these), but the final product was well done. New finish" is even and glossy. Tub bottom has a non-slip finish. Work was done on-time and clean up was excellent.

"I had just moved into a new (old) house which had two bathtubs. I saw the Angie's List deal with this company which was a good price to refinish a bathtub," so I purchased two. I had done this at my old house with a different company and had been happy with the results. Since one of the bathrooms needed some renovation first, I had them start with one tub. They did a good job EXCEPT they installed some gritty stuff in the bottom that makes it so you don't slip. They did this without asking even though they mentioned later that it is optional. I did NOT want this in this particular tub because it does not have a shower and never will because there is a slanted wall right above it. This is an old clawfoot tub that is very clearly only used for baths. Now everytime we use it, we have to sit on the scratchy bottom. It looks good, but that is annoying. The renovations on the other bathroom took longer than usual so I asked for an extension of my coupon. At first they said no, but I talked them into a year extension. When I was ready (within a year), I called them numerous times to schedule the refinishing and they never called me back. I paid for this service so I don't see why they can't honor that. So, I paid for two bathtub refinishes, got one which I'm not happy with. Waste of money. I recommend that you use another company.

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 circumstances were a bit odd because the contractor had a death in his family that caused an interruption in the work. Throughout he and his staff were professional and timely and did a good job.

Mr.

was very professional and friendly when I placed a call asking for an estimate. We set a date and time for the repair and the service man arrived at the designated time. Our tub was stripped and reglazed. A few days later, Mr.

returned to complete the tub work. My tub looks like new and I was extremely pleased with the results. I would definitely recommend

From estimate to finish,
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was responsive, clear, and professional. We were fully redoing our bathroom, and
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
explained the order in which to complete everything (plumbing, reglazing, tile floor). The price was fair, compared to estimates I saw online from other companies. I didn't even get other estimates because
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
seemed like the most knowledgeable person by far, and this impression was reinforced upon meeting him. This is a job that can go very, very wrong and be a total waste of money if you don't hire an expert and pick someone who just does it "on the side."
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was meticulous in the reglazing, and he accommodated some last-minute minor issues (we broke a tile with a soap dish the night before he was coming over, and he replaced it). He also explained thoroughly how to care for/clean the tile. The finished work looks gorgeous, and people can't believe that the same ugly pink and blue tile is beneath the beautiful white glaze!
A couple months after the work was done, a tiny chip appeared in the bottom of the tub. I called
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, and he came by within a week or so to look at it. Apparently, a speck of dirt got under the glaze, which caused the chip. (Not to be cynical, but I appreciated that he didn't try to imply that we'd done something to chip the glaze and charge us for it.)
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
fixed it then and there, free of charge, and it blended perfectly with the rest of the tub. We haven't had any other problems!
I highly recommend

After reading the reviews here on Angie's list , I was sure I was getting prime service,
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and I set up a time for him to come, he answered all my question over the phone prior to even coming and time was set ,
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was right on time, Love that...
He came in with his supplies and went right upstairs to the Bathroom, within second's he asked me to come back up..
he pointed out that my tub was dented in the floor and it is holding water causing the rust stain's and if he were to refinish my tub it wouldn't last more then a year. because the
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was a bigger issue then I could see till he pointed it out, I was in shock...
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
being very upfront with me said it could be fixed but would cost almost as much as replacing the tub itself would be, He is a very honest Man and I would hire him again if I could.
He could have refinished my tub and left without me knowing it wouldn't last but he was truthful in telling me and showing me in detail..
He came out of the way to come here like 7am told me the truth and didn't even charge me a service fee, and I did not even think to offer , I was still in shock over the tub..Thank you so
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
for that.,
He is a very nice Man , NOT pushy at all and at this point I would say Truthful and trustworthy and I would recommend him to my friend's as I have told many through FB about him.hi
I wish I could say my tub was done but it wasn't but at least I wasn't taken over and lost my money..

Dealing with
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was great! From their office staff to the gentleman that came to our home and did the work their level of professionalism and quality of their work was impeccable. The process was laid out for us in detail before anything was started so we knew exactly what we were getting into. The whole process took only two days. The bathroom was sealed off from the rest of the house and ventilated out of a bedroom window as to not expose the house or us to any harm. All aspects of the work were done with care and the results were fantastic. Instead of ripping out all the old tile our old tile was transformed with their finishing process and all without any grout lines to get dirty anymore!!!! I would recommend
Philadelphia Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
(and I have) to anyone looking to fix up some tile with minimal work and time.
