did a wonderful job! We couldn't be more pleased! The service man arrived on time, explained everything he was going to do, and showed" me his progress as he went. It's a smelly job, but he vented our bathroom as he went. Our tub looks brand new. Definitely more cost-effective than demo-
our old tub and installing a new one.

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.

I called and spoke to the owners wife to make an appointment. She fit me in sooner than expected because we were in the process of putting our house up for sale and wanted our bathtub finished before it went on the
Decatur Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. On the day of the appointment, the owner and an additional worker arrived on time. They laid down drop cloth from my front door, up the stairs into my bathroom. The bathroom doorway was also sealed off with plastic. The entire process took just a few hours and my tub came out amazing! I wish I would've done it years ago. The owner returned the next day to do the non-skid finish on the bottom. He was running a little late because he had another job in the morning, but I received calls keeping me updated of when he'd arrive. Their work is guaranteed for 3 years and when I needed him to come back and fix one issue (due to my own fault), he was there the next day and in and out in less than 5 minutes. I highly recommend this company and plan on using them again in a new home we're purchasing.

The were fast, courteous and professional. Somehow a puncture hole appeared in our guest shower enclosure. We called them, arranged a convenient time, they showed up on-time, repaired the damage to the point that unless you absolutely know where the hole was, you can't find it.

It was a pleasure doing business with

. Called him Friday and he fit me in for Monday. He even called ahead to see if was okay to come a little earlier than scheduled - of course it was because I just couldn't wait to have this done. He assessed the tub - went to get his equipment and the work began. The original quote was $275; however because of the rust build-up, he had to work a bit longer and harder - the extra $50 was well deserved! When the tub was complete - I was truly amazed! I still cannot believe it's the same tub. He took his time and has definitely mastered the art of

I had bathtub and bathroom sink that were installed 50 years ago, and you could see the age in all cracks and stains. Didn't have money for the bathroom renovation, so I decided to refresh it. I contacted

company, they gave me estimation over the phone and explained the process. I liked the price, and I made an appointment with them. The contractor came in time, was very patient and careful about our apartment. First part of the project took about 3 hours, then he left. Next day he came again and finished the job in about 1-1.5 hours. Results are great! Bathtub and the sink look brand new. Tenants love it. I will definitely call

if I need to restore any other tubs, sinks, or countertops.

I purchased this Angie Deal to reglaze tub in house I bought recently. Scheduling work was delayed (my fault) , but we finally found a time to complete. He showed up on-time - early even. The prep work was done thoroughly and with as little disruption to the rest of the house as possible. The care required was explained well and paperwork was left detailing care and warranty. The tub looked so good that the old hardware then looked shabby and called out to be replaced.

went over the paper work and explained the process and pricing. They did a great job refinishing the bath tub and vanity top. I also got the non slip treatment done to the bath tub which was additional $ 45, but better than having bath mats in tub that tend to get moldy. Work comes with two year warranty. They left the job site clean and tidy. I will recommend them to other friends as well.

and a crew member arrived on time and began a refinish on my bathtub. There was a tremendous amount of prep work and
Decatur Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was extremely diligent. He did an excellent job covering everything and putting up plastic to keep the dust down. When he was finished he spent the time to give me next steps and proper care guidelines. All in all, he did a great job and I am extremely happy with the result. I would recommend his service.

and Javi did wonderful work. They arrived right on time, did the job right, explained the follow up steps clearly, and left the bathroom remarkably clean. I don't know how I would have improved their work.
One point I want to stress: the cleanliness of the process--especially because I expected it to be at least a little messy. Much of the time was devoted to covering (I mean COVERING) the bathroom in protective paper, so that when they left no paint, dust, or dirt had gotten on any other bathroom surface. They even put down paper by the front door to be sure they didn't track in dirt from outside. This is the kind of carefulness you always want people to demonstrate--and these guys did it.
The only difficulty with the process was getting it scheduled. The company asked me to email them pictures of the problem, and communication about those pictures wasn't good. But, once the scheduling was in place, the process went very smoothly.
