"I spoke to several
firms before calling
. I was concerned about chips and a rusted drain" on my current tub and wanted to know if these could be corrected and the tub refinished in white. He stopped at the house to make a determination and was very helpful with suggestions for completing a new tub surround I was installing myself. We agreed on a price and made a date to do the job. On the agreed day he was punctual and very attentive to detail. By the end of the day my tub looked new for a fraction of the price of replacing it with a new one or a with a liner. As a bonus
provides a 10 year warranty and left a care guide. Overall I am very satisfied with the outcome.

-Tony M.

team was great. They even accommodated my schedule (which is great for a busy mom like me). They were there promptly at 7 am and got straight" to work. They were careful and cleaned up their work afterwards (which is extremely important to me). The bathroom looks awesome.
as gracious and really sweet. I would highly recommend their team if you have bath refinishing job.

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.

Angie's Answers


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.


Bathtub Refinishing reviews in Port Charlotte


I signed a contract with
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, VP of Operations for
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, and a licensed contractor for Git "R Done Contracting & Management. (FL Dept of State indicates that
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
is a dummy front company for Git 'R Done Contracting & Management.) At the time of the signing I was required to pay a deposit of half the contract amount, $3,290.00.
An appointment for remodeling was set for 11-10-14. The contractor did not show up on the scheduled date. No call, no nothing. I tried to contact them but they would not return my calls/messages. I contacted
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
corporate office and the contractor finally returned my call. Another appointment was set for 12-1-14. Again, the contractor did not show up on the scheduled date. Again, I tried to contact them and they would not return my calls/messages. Again, I had to contact
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
corporate office and they convinced me to set a third appointment with Git 'R Done Contracting and Management for 12-22-14. Yet again, the contractor did not show up for the appointment.
After four months and three "no show" appointments we reached the limit of our frustration/patience and cancelled our contract with Git 'R Done Contracting & Management. We have not received the return of our deposit money.
- Michael S.

Great to work with, gave competitive estimate and very professional from start to finish. Contractor was polite and helpful and did a very detailed job. Follow up after service also professional. This company should expand services to full remodeling.
- Stacie D.

A Nightmare;
The technician who came out and did the job was very friendly. My job was scheduled as a two day job, so
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
came out a day earlier than the original scheduled day. After being there for the one day though,
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
declared that he was finished with my project & that there would be no need to return for a second coat. That was actually a relief to me because I was horrified with the demonstrated low level of concern re: his own protective gear and the insufficient protection of my home from the dust & toxic smelling odors the process created. His company did not provide him with any shoe covers, uniform, labeled professional vehicle, hazmat suiting, advanced respirator
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, sufficient containment sheets, effective dust collector, or even a Materials Data Safety Sheet.
After the job I spend an exhausting week of dusting and washing to rid my home, furniture, carpets, floors, ceiling fans and fabrics from the white dust that seemed to have settled everywhere.
It's worth mentioning that the overpowering smell during and after was so strong that I basically moved out of my bedroom for one week, left the windows open and shut the door to the rest of the house. I was never warned of this possibility and luckily we had another bedroom and bath to use. This is contrary to the claims made by the
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
You Tube and written materials. I did ask the technician for a Material Data Sheet to review re: the chemicals they were using b/c of the smell and the obvious dust it was creating but he did not have one.
The procedure they used to protect my house from the dust was so minimal that, like I said above, my entire home had areas of white dust. Also, there is rough dust permanently stuck to my toilet seat and around the floor of the toilet, I guess it was not covered and there were very few measures taken to keep the dust contained except for some minimal taping & a very inadequate vacuum type exhaust fan they stuck at my window. This exhaust fan was later placed on my oriental carpet where it deposited brownish white dust from previous jobs. I took the rug to the Persian Rug Companu to have it professionally cleaned.

, the tech, did do an excellent job on the crater where a candle burned down some of the tub surface, you can't see where it was at all. But I was much less pleased with the lack of the promised resemblance to a ''new tub''. This finish turned out rough to the touch & totally lacked the promised stain resistance of the finished procedure. In fact, it picks up stains my sink and shower would never absorb (such as soaking a blanket in the tub - left a large purple stain. A shampoo bottle also left a ring of stain on the rim.)
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
is a nationwide company that promises shiny new, stain resistant surfaces that
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
a new tub surface. They promise that they will contain all dust & protect all surfaces from their process & their You-tube demonstrations are quite impressive.
So, I can only conclude that either
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
Corporate indulges in false advertising OR the procedure used on my job was inferior and did not follow the company prescriptions. Nevertheless, the Corporate
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
people were useless in helping me to get this local franchise to finish this job correctly. They ignored my belief that the one day job did not include the two layers of glazing surface promised by their ads.
(Also, annoyingly, the grouting job they did around the tub was sloppy, and somehow they put the tub drain plug in so that it will not stay in the open position anymore. I also had to replace my shower head myself since they left a piece of hose attached to the shower pipe.

, the owner, never did return my phone calls & after innumerable cancellations and appointment time changes, he finally came out to check out the job. He brought his wife who pulled out her cell phone to video not only the tub, but my entire bathroom, bedroom, living and dining room and kitchen. While she was doing this against my protestations,
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
also ignored my request they vacate my home. Instead, he parked himself at my dining room table to write up some long form he insisted I sign before they would leave. I finally called the county
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. They still hung around but finally left just before he arrived. I felt so terrorized by these two that I still shake when I think about it.
I have since spoken to
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
at Superior Glazing. He said that he will come out in the spring (when we can open windows) to repair the job done by
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. I should have called him first since he charges less and does the two day procedure w/o shortcuts.
- rose J.

I called
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
on January 20 and got his voice mail. Before I was able to finish leaving a message, he called me back. I wanted a price for reglazing a tub, in the guest bathroom, that was more than 30 years old. He asked me a few questions about the tub and gave me a reasonable price. Based on the price and the Angie's List rating he had, I hired him without calling other people.
He came out on January 23. He called 20 minutes before arriving. He spent a lot of time prepping the tub. A couple of hours later he was done. He gave me care instructions. I liked that he was responsive and on time. I had guests arriving on January 24 and would need to use the shower on the 25th.
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
emailed me care instructions and a 5 year warranty. Based on my experience with
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, I would recommend him.
- Mark K.

It was a perfect experience. A woman came first and taped everything off and then
Port Charlotte Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
came and reglazed the tub. He did an absolutely impeccable job. It's perfect and beautiful. We cannot say enough about how happy we are with his work. We HIGHLY recommend him.
- Share J.

it went great. The guy that came was on time, curious & professional. Answered all my questions on how to clean it & it only took 2 hours! My tub was HORRENDOUS before and now it's white with a non-slip surface. They did a great job of removing the old caulk and if there was mildew behind it before they went ahead & re-caulked. Very satisfied.
- Lauren M.

I highly recommend this service. Every aspect was professional. They described the whole process with no surprises. The technician was punctual and the quality of work was outstanding. The bathtub looks brand new. We are going to have them return to refinish our other bathtub and wall tile.
- Gary L.

He was punctual and did a great job on both tubs. They look so much better. Both are over 30 years old and really needed to be redone. The refinish of the counter top looks great but is not the color I originally picked. He also "oversprayed" the wall and bathroom door. Lucky for me we were painting anyway but if you are not planning to paint make sure everything but the area being worked on is covered with plastic!!
