"Went really well. I dealt with
and I was impressed with: -responsiveness: began project day after we agreed on it. This is after I fired previous contractor" for not showing up, so I was very happy to have this project get moving -project management/communication: typically not a strong point of contractors, however
kept communicaiton going - would call frequently with updates, was reachable, and overall kept project moving on schedule. -quality of work: no complaints whatsoever. Had an issue where walls were crooked (as old walls) and tile was sticking out at
- he got his handyman guy to smooth out the drywall so it blends well. Minor issues were resolved right away -pricing: overall pricing was good: I saved significantly over what my interior designer quoted me. Only issue was original estimate was much less than what I ended up paying (as scope kept increasing) but overall I still felt it was much cheaper than I would have gotten throuugh my interior designer.

"I have used them before. I did like the end result because the quality of work was very good. I just wish that at the beginning of the project they would have communicated better with" me about what was going on since I was paying for the time to meet up with him and go over the project and what needed to be done. Other than that, they did a great job.

"We were able to get an appointment right awway. The guy was a little late, but called to let us know. Overall, we're very happy. Our tub was in bad shape from a previous job several" years ago, with lots of chipped enamel.
was able to get all of that stripped off and pour a smooth coat of enamel. There are a few very small rough spots, but the job was guaranteed for 7 years, so we will see if we need to bring him back.
looks 100 times better than it did before. The price was exactly the same as the quote, and it was about $100 less than most other quotes I got. We would recommend this provider, and we'd use them again ourselves.

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.

, went to site and emailed me a written estimate. He offered a discount if I would refinish both tubs at the same time. We accepted his bid and we made an appointment for the following week. He was prompt, courteous and his worker completed the work in one day.

I have some rental property that has cast iron tubs in all the units. The tubs are over 50 years old and needed to be replaced or resurfaced. Replacement would have entailed demolition of the walls and floors in order to remove the tubs so we opted to try to have the tubs resurfaced. Even with some damage to the existing porcelain the repair and repaint turned out beautifully. I would do this again rather than go to the expense and mess of replacing the tubs.

I told the kid who did the installation that we had just painted and to be careful about scrapes. He put three scrapes on the walls to the extent I had to have the painter back to fix them. Then he miscut the material and put the hole for the shower in the wrong place. He wanted to do some kind of fill in job, which would have looked terrible, and I insisted I wanted a wall that was cut in the right place, not some patch job. He grudgingly complied, after talking to his bosses. After that, he didn't bother to clean, and the bathroom was a mess. I complained to the company about the scrapes in the walls and all the dirt he left. They discounted my bill $25 which I felt was an insult. I would never have these people in my home again. Looking back. I see how they ripped me off from the beginning. It took me two weeks from the ordering process to get an exact date when they would be there. In short, total ripoff from beginning to end.
