"The provider showed up early, got right to work and did a great job. The gentleman who came outdid not speak a lot of English but he managed to make himself understood." He did a great job, the bathtub looks like new.

"It went very well. Tech showed up just after 9AM and worked until 1:30PM. He placed drop cloths from the front door to the bathroom door. Set up exhaust fan from" bath through bedroom and out the window. Bath was properly masked. Tech wore projective face
and head covering. Cleaned up was very thorough. Tech went over do's and
'ts on proper tub care. Overall a very good experience.

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 very friendly guys were five minutes early each day. They taped up everything so there was no over-spray, and took time to scrap off some old buildup on the tub. I feel they went over and above to get the job done. They came back the second day to clean up and inspect the work. It looks great! Highest

They completed all the work within a week. They were clean and tidy and completed painting after the other work was done. They were on time, worked efficiently, and asked questions about adjusting different aspects of the job. The materials they used were high quality.

They did the best job I have ever seen. They had to do a lot of work to the pipe and they did an exceptional job. They cleaned up well after themselves.

made my scratched and scarred tub look like new. In about 2 hours on the first day, the tub was prepared for refinishing and refinished. The following day in about an hour, the tub was recaulked and the room was cleaned. The odor of the product was no more than with oil based paint as far as I was concerned and was completely gone the second day. I am very pleased with the result and recommend this company in all categories. The price reflects my Angie's List discount which was accepted with no difficulty.

Mr.
San Antonio Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was on time and exact with his estimate. His crew was always here on time. They were very courteous and went right to work. They did a good job of covering everything in the bathroom before they sprayed, but unfortunately their initial surface prep of the tub and surround was not perfect. There was some silicone caulk around the
San Antonio Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
of the tub that they did not remove. They sprayed on the finish, covering the tub, tub surround, and some tile that we had requested be covered. Then they left saying they would be back the next morning to recheck and do touch ups. I noticed the place where they sprayed over the silicone caulk was peeling up. I pointed this out the next morning when they came back and they agreed it was not up to their standards. They asked if I could wait, then they would have a crew come in and fix it the next morning. I could and they did. The next day they went back and cleaned up and sanded and then re-sprayed the entire tub and surround with a second coat. The finished result was excellent and better than I had hoped for. I note that they also have a five year warranty. Overall I felt they did excellent work.

came out and gave me an estimate for the job. It was very reasonable, for such a large shower, especially considering how much it would cost to have it completely re-tiled. We didn't want to spend that much money and take that much time doing something like that. We set up an appointment for the following week to get the shower refinished. Will and

I contracted a cabinetry installer through Angie's List. While talking with him I mentioned that I wished there was a inexpensive way of replacing my old butcher block kitchen counters with something more modern. He recommended that I call

Company came out when scheduled and on time. Care was taken to prevent over-spray of paint on any other surface of my tiny bathroom. I am completely satisfied and could not be happier with the results. Friends and relatives thought I had a new bathtub installed-it looks that good! Highly recommend this company!
