"They were very professional and friendly. I never felt they were trying to up-sell me or insist on me adding things in my bathroom that I didn't need. They also tried to help" me save money by offering to paint a cabinet that was in fairly decent shape instead of replacing it. Very helpful in arranging the financing with their lender and has remained within my budget.

"I recently decidedto finally do something about the ancient tub and tile situation I had going on in my bathroom. My main goal for the tub and tile area had less to with full-on renovation" or restoration and more to do with abating any sort of water infiltration and fixing leaking plumbing. For this reason, I decided to give Bathfitters a shot. Overall, I would say that I am satisfied with my choice. Here is a quick break down of the pros and cons as I experienced them: Pros: · The staff were all very friendly and helpful · The installation was completed in one 8-hour day as promised · The acrylic fitting itself fits snugly and installation appears sound · Clean-up of the bathroom area was performed following the installation · The warranty appears to be fairly inclusive Meh: · There was no mention of an extended warranty feature that would allow the warranty to transfer to the next property owner Con: · The price is fairly steep for what is actually done to your bathroom. However, it should be noted that the quick installation and the warranty add to the value of the service I would recommend this service to anyone who needs a quick and effective fix for a bathroom in trouble. -VR 04-17-2014

"When I purchased the property, I thought one tub could be cleaned and salvaged but it turned out to have several coats of surfacing already on it. Looked at Angies List and found several" top ranked companies but only
had an actual showroom you could visit! I got phone pricing from other vendors and while most were appreciably less expensive, I had no way of knowing what I was buying! The
warranty was also better. The young man who came to do the work,
, was super nice and did a fabulous job of stripping and refinishing the tub which looks great. I'm a very happy customer but in all fairness, the success of this process needs to be measured over time - but have no reason to believe their finish will not hold up.

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 -

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.

We chose A&J after reading

listings and getting visits/quotes from three potential vendors.
Richmond Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
(owner) explained the steps involved in the resurfacing and estimated a three-day time period for completion. Scheduling was easily and efficiently handled by April (

's wife). On the start day their worker (

) arrived punctually and did a very detailed, thorough cleaning of the existing tiles and grout. There was no mess, no fuss and he was most professional. The second day

resurfaced the walls, applying the necessary primer and multiple resurfacing materials. While the spray was foul-smelling,

kept air blowers going the entire time. By the following morning there was little odor remaining. That third morning
Richmond Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
handled the resurfacing of the non-slip shower floor and the bathroom floor. Again, blowers kept the smell to a minimum. When completed our bathroom looked brand new in every respect! A remarkable improvement! My wife and I are very satisfied and will certainly recommend A&J to others.
As an aside, A&J's price was about one-half that of another top-rated area vendor. Unlike them, A&J does not have an expensive showroom to support in Short Pump which, we think, is totally unnecessary for a resurfacing project such as ours. Also, keep in mind that the temporary removal of the toilet, sink, shower door, etc. is something that must be arranged separately. None of the providers we spoke with offered those services.
We're very pleased with A&J Resurfacing as they proved to be true specialists who were reasonably priced and a pleasure to deal with.

When our bathroom was remodeled, we chose to have the contractor reglaze the bathtub in order to not have to deal with multiple schedules. Big mistake. I had previously gotten an estimate of $299 to reglaze the bathtub and I should have gone with it! When it was clear to both the contractor and me that the original reglazing job was not good at all, he gave me money back for that portion and I immediately called A & J. They were extremely professional in all their dealings with me - from scheduling, to assuring me that they could fix the tub, to coming back when the glaze was dry to caulk the tub in the color I wanted. (Normally, I believe they use white caulk on the day that they glaze. I wanted to use the colored caulk that match my grout and they were happy to come back and do that. when the glaze was completely dry.)

They arrived promptly, my bathroom was clean when they left (I know many people who have complained about the grit that hangs around a bathroom when a reglazing is done), they communicated clearly and often during the process of scheduling, and were always extremely courteous and professional. (My original reglazing was scheduled for the day after Hurricane
Richmond Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
blew through and we were without power so we had to reschedule.)

Although they were charging $299 to reglaze a tub when I first called, if your tub has ever been reglazed, there is an extra $100 charge to remove the first glaze. So my total cost was $399 and it was money extremely well spent. I would use this company again in a heart beat.

Our technician
Richmond Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
is an artist. He spent four days holed up in a bathroom with the door shut prepping, taping and covering surfaces not meant to be sprayed, and then applying the surface coats. He is very polite, punctual, quietly working in cramped conditions. Each day he stored his equipment out of the way, and thoroughly cleaned up at the end of the job. As an added bonus, he did not mind my curious and loud hound dogs.

This was scheduled 2 weeks in advance. The worker arrived promptly and left on time. The overall quality looks good much better than the tub did before, but there was some dust-that probably couldn't have been avoided in the finish. It still looks 200% better than it did.
The owners are wonderful! very helpful in answering questions and follow up. I had a non standard tub, so I couldn't use their standard drain cover, so they helped me find it on the internet.
I'd use them again anytime.
I cannot say how it has held up, because it looks so nice I have not wanted to use it yet.in
