"I called
on a weekend and we had scheduled both tubs for a Thursday but he had a cancellation and offered to come on Tuesday so we had 1" tub completed on a Tuesday and the other on Thursday. They arrived in the morning and worked all day, left the bathrooms clean and the both tubs look fantastic. Only down side is the fumes from the product - they did open windows and use a fan to remove as much as possible but you can smell fumes for a bit afterwards - still a professional job and the tubs look brand new!

"So far I am completely satisfied with the quality and service of
& Kitchen
, Inc. The tub/shower and shower" look great!. The shower was done about a month after the tub/shower. I have never had this kind of service before and just hope the coatings last. The workers arrived within the scheduled time frame and completed the
in a professional manner. The surrounding surfaces were properly masked and there was no overspray. I highly recommend
1!

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.

They were just perfect. They did exactly what they said they were going to do. They were prompt and cleaned up after themselves. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.

Although the finished product seems to be satisfactory, there was not much attention to protecting the bathroom from over spray. After the technician left I was left with a rough film coating on the sink, toilet, fixtures and faucets. The adjacent closet was also left with a film on the floor since apparently is was not covered during the process. The caulking around the tub was not refinished as nicely as what I already had around the tub.

was extremely professional throughout. He was initially going to refinish the sink on-site, but once he saw the amount of exposed raw wood inside the property (there's no basement), he explained the damage that any overspray would likely cause.

took the sink and pedestal to his workshop at no additional charge, and brought it back after the job was complete. Delivery was a little delayed because the sink was scuffed when reloading, but

fixed it without being asked after disclosing the problem and taking full responsibility. All in all,

After the technician's visit had gone so well, I was very surprised that
Pocatello Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
did not follow through. Someone did call from the office to get my email address, which I provided (thinking I already had) so they could send a proposal. But nothing came in. If the bid got lost in cyberspace, there is no explanation as to why no one called to ask if I ever received it in the first place. I don't feel I should have to be the one to follow up on this, so I have decided to work with another contractor. The whole situation left me feeling disrespected, with a dim view of the company. In the end, all time and effort that went into the on-site visit went nowhere, and I still do not know why.
The only grades I could provide reflect on my overall impression of the company, not on the technician who came to my home.

I initially spoke to

on the phone. Our conversation was very pleasant. I called one other provider who had a substantially higher price.
Pocatello Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
came out to look at my tub and my bathroom, since I was considering having some other work done. When he arrived, he informed me that the tub was in a pretty bad state, it couldn't just be refinished, but needed to be repaired as well because it was rusting through. I could easily see what he was talking about. We discussed cost of fixing versus replacing and I decided to go with fixing.
I also asked
Pocatello Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
his opinion about replacing a vanity and he told me it was completely unnecessary, and I shouldn't spend the money. I appreciated his honesty.
We set up an appointment for just a few days later.
Pocatello Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
arrived on time and worked hard all day. He left while he was waiting for the surface of the tub to dry, so he could finish up caulking another tub. I appreciated that he valued other people's time as well as his own, and didn't want to sit around doing nothing. He returned when he said he would to finish the job. The next day, his son came over to do the caulking. His son was also very prompt and he did a great job on the caulking.
Before

left, he gave me detailed instructions about how to care for the tub going forward and a copy of the warranty. The warranty is for 5 years.
The tub looks great. I was sharing the details on Facebook as the procedure went forward and everyone was very impressed. A friend plans on hiring

Christian was easy to talk to, prompt, direct. We had to make some adjustments due to some of the surrounding material (old popcorn ceiling mess that I was able to remove and make easier for their application). This service was a great fix and price point for updating a 1980's house with

From start to end, Ram &

& the crew came promptly on time each day, were very courteous & respectful of our other things at home that they made sure they didn't cause a mess. They cleaned up very well after the job was done too. Although I was a bit worried at first that the job would not finish on time, they actually did as promised considering the hoildays which just passed too. Some light fixtures were also replaced & installed new ones & Ram made sure that the electric part of the work was done without fault. I noticed that all of them from Ram &

down to their crew, were very meticulous & detail-oriented. And I'm a highly critically meticulous person so I appreciated this quality which I saw in them. My ideas were always prioritized & guided at the same time ensuring that we got the best quality outcome. I feel I was really taken cared of by this Company & that it was never about the money for these guys but you really felt the sincerity in them wanting to make me feel very happy & satisfied with the end-result. I already recommended them to my friends & family & I would use
