"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!

and
showed up on time and got straight to it - prepping the tubs, carrying in their gear, and setting up the exhaust fans.
" was finished by early afternoon, cleaned up, hauled out his gear and was gone. After 24 hours we were able to use the tubs/showers. The wife and daughters noted that the finish was slightly rough; I called
, let her know about it and
was out a couple days later and polished up the tubs (from my research, it's very common for a wet finish to attract dust). The girls were happy (and you know if they're not happy - no one's happy!) so the whole deal was a complete success and the tubs look fantastic. Very professional from start to finish.

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.

Bathtub Refinishing reviews in San Antonio

I am slightly disappointed in that I assumed the top would "look like" granite. It has a semi rough/ dullish appearance. The color is all right. When workers left, they should make it more clear what the next phase is and how long, as all kit taped up and basically can't use anything in VERY full lower cabinets.. I know this is for dust reasons, clean up, but I wound up not knowing lower cabinets were inaccessible. Things like a spoon, dog's med,, even trash can and more. The warranty was explained and given to me. If I have any issues they will try to help with them. I really hope I don't ever have to go thru anything close to this major upheaval. (Since I'm and unwell 83 yr old great grandmother and I was here alone doing whatever, my health is down several notches.

We found them on Angie's List, contacted them through Angie's List, and

called me to set up the appt. the next day. They were prompt and gave an estimate that we felt was fair. They came out the following week to accommodate my schedule. They were prompt, courteous and did a great job. The job looks great and comes with a 5 year warranty.

It is amazing to me that a company can act so unprofessionally. I am very understanding and would have agreed to another time had they just called me to let me know. Instead my time was wasted and clearly less important than their's. I ended up working with another company that did appreciate my business and time.

showed up on time at 9:00 am on February 17, 2014. Very professional and he began with protecting the floor with drop cloths. He then asked me to open our bathroom window and he placed the exhaust hose/tubing out the window. He then stripped the old reseal on the tub and scraped the old finish. He did protect everything around using brown paper and taped the walls, toilet sink and walls. He was very thorough. He finished the job at 3:15 pm.

out three little spots and he came back out and got it done and again the tub looks fantastic. I enjoy going into the restroom and looking at our "new" tub. Keeping the true look of our home is paramount and I would not trade my tub in for today's products.

Overall, it went very well. Picked color and time to start project. Process is unique and it looks great when finished. Only issue is I was told all the caulking and grout areas around the base of the tub would be restored also. All caulking areas were done, but the tech said the grout areas weren't part of the process. To be fair, I haven't notified the company of this issue. Any other questions I had, the company responded well. I would recommend their process.

The contractor did a good job resurfacing the tub and also a very good job with ventilation (while doing the work) and with clean-up. A couple of months later, we noticed that in four separate areas, the coating had chipped or discolored. After two attempts to contact them,
San Antonio Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
came out and said they would repair the tub (they provide a 5-year warranty). We made three separate appointments for the repairs and they were a no-show on all three. And only before one of the scheduled visits did they contact us. On the other two, we heard nothing. Extremely poor service after the sale.

We called

for this job based on previous excellent experience on other remodels in our home.

remodeled our master bath, replaced solid oak flooring and engineered flooring in a large part of our home, repaired walls, took down the old wallpaper in our kitchen and resurfaced the walls for the paint, and painted the rest of the first floor of our home within the last 18 months.

took care of a tile problem that recently developed in the master bathroom shower--the tile had been discontinued so he scoured sources throughout the US to find enough tile to fix the broken tiles. The shower is good as new and this is a testament to how he stands behind his work. Our home is refreshed and updated thanks to the excellent work of

will set up appointments with all his resources to help pick out the materials. He met with me at his granite fabricator's business and a tile showroom--this was key to putting the look together. He made sure I had samples of the granite, the floor tile (surrounds the Tub/Shower as well), and the decorative glass tiles so I could pick out wall colors and other items. A paint consultant at Lowes was extremely impressed with the granite/tile selections and we had a fun time picking the perfect blue and green paint for the walls. She described the look as very sophisticated. The cabinets were built to my exact specifications--they are beautiful and functional. The final step was to pick out the mirror. The Frame Gallery--another

Let's face it--remodeling is a pain! The schedule changes, materials may arrive late, personnel get sick--you name it and it will happen! This remodel had some of these glitches.
