"I was to meet the estimator at a rental property and when I approached from the side street corner, one house away, I could already smell the very offensive cigar" smoke and see that he had parked on the sidewalk blocking both a very highly used sidewalk and bike lane on a major street. Parking on the street is clearly marked illegal and with heavy traffic endangers everyone. When I approached the car, the smoke was overwhelming. He made some comment about waiting, (I was 15 minutes early) and there wasn't any place to park. Well, the block is only 5 houses long and plenty of parking on either side street or across the street on the side street. Residents and service people have been managing since the homes were built in the 1940's. There was no way I was going to talk to, stand by, or let someone so rude and smelling so offensively in any property of mine nor trust someone so unprofessional making such poor decisions with a job. I wouldn't have even taken a smelly card if he had offered. I left. Yes, I should have taken photos but I am a half a generation away from that being my first thought. And, now, I have to find someone else, make another appointment and give notice to my lovely tenants and start over. Still angry!

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.

If you can buy a new bathtub for about the same cost as getting one refinished, why not just buy a new one?

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.

The whole experience was wonderful. They showed up on time and walked me through each step. We had some pretty deep gouges and scratches in the tub that they sanded out and the tub looks brand new (and not pink!) I am so glad we did not go through the hassle and cost of getting a new tub. They were done in a half day. All in all a wonderful outcome and experience. Would definitely recommend.

It's been a pretty dissatisfied experience. In all honesty if they communicated better we could have come to a resolution. I have contacted other grout companies about the work and I have been told by another company that due to the location of the drain that he would not do this job and in his opinion the initial work should have not been provided.
