"I called
, was given estimate on the phone and I made the appt.
arrived right on time. He was very professional." He explained everything he was going to do; told me about the dust and smell. But really, he kept the bathroom door closed and I was not bothered. I offered
coffee or ice tea and he thanked me each time but said "no." He had another young man with him who was being trained and was also very nice. They were conscious of any dust they might track thru the house.
gave me his phone number if I had any questions. A few days later I did have a question and he responded right away. Matter of fact at Halloween he was visiting my area and walking with his
and said hello to me. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend this company!


"Installer did a very good job. Called me to see various steps in bath shower repair. Price fairly reasonable for getting walls chose; mold issue and rebuild. Cleaned" up well, was neat while working. Sales rep not pushy.

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 Brookston


From beginning to end, our installer Skip was fabulous! He masked everything so there was no overspray...he cleaned up after himself...he was polite...worked his bum off.....and the results were fabulous. Our tub looks brand new!! Absolutely worth every dime.

So I contacted
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
to refinish 3 bathrooms in my home. The company owner
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
did the job. They showed up a week earlier due to a scheduling mis-hap, so none of the toilets were pulled in any of the bathrooms, which
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
pulled himself for no extra charge, which i thought was great. I was told the job would take about 2 days, it ended up taking 4, due to the extra work, which is no big deal, since I'm not living in the house currently. He didn't show up each day until 10-11 AM at the earliest, which like i said was no big deal to me since I wasn't currently living in the house. He was supposed to come on a Saturday but he called me and said he didn't have a babysitter, which is very understandable, except for the fact that he didn't call to tell me this until 1:00PM So, moving forward, after the bathrooms were refinished, i realized that the floor in my shower had a great deal of defects, so i contacted
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and he came within 2 days and repaired it. After looking at the job over again, i paid
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
the full 1800.00 dollars for the job. A couple weeks went by and i realized that there was a 2'x2' area on one of my bathroom walls thats had about 20-30 air bubbles. I attempted to contact
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
a few times via his personal cell phone, with no answer. I then called the listed number to the company and i was assured by his associate that
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
would contact me. After a few days, he did contact me. I told
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
what the issue was and he said it would be no problem, he would be by to fix it. Since then it has been 3 weeks, i have spoke to
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
's associate a few times a he has assured me that he was going to contact
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and have him call me, which has never happened, I've called and texted multiple times with no response. I have now left voicemails on
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
's personal phone and the company phone, with no response from either. The quality of their work is good, but if you have any problems, be sure you address them before you pay, or they will leave you high and dry is what i have learned from my experience. I would not allow them to come fix this problem now after the way this has been handled and would not recommend
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
to anyone.

Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
communicated with me throughout the process and the work turned out fantastic. The bathroom looks like a brand new room at a fraction of the cost of remodeling.

The provider did an excellent job, my bathtub looks like brand new one. The scheduling was really easy, they were really helpful explaining how this new material works. It is amazing, there is no any toxic smell and it dries really quick.
Had a great experience and will use them for another services.

Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
arrived promptly and was very conscientious about protecting the surrounding areas where he had to work. He had provided a quote based on photos that were sent to him and when he had completed the job the invoice amount was $90 less than his estimate because he stated that the condition of the tub was better than he expected and therefore didn't require as much effort on his part. I was shocked because I was fully-prepared to pay the originally quoted price. Not only was the work done below the original estimate but it was done spectacularly! The areas he did had been refinished about 8 years ago but it never looked as good as after
Brookston Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
completed his work. I would highly recommend this craftsmen to anyone who wants a job done very well and also at a fair and reasonable cost. It's great to find a contractor who obviously takes great pride in his work and also has integrity.
- Samuel L.

Made a world of difference in how the tub looked.
Very pleased with the results.
