"To sum it up in one word, Wow! We purchased the Angie's Big Deal and after working through the logistics we were able to have
come out" and do their magic. We were very impressed with their communication in setting up the appointment, their promptness in arriving earlier than originally scheduled and the overall results of their work. The bathtub looks like it is brand new. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to refinish a bathtub.

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.

our installer (a great guy to work with) tore out our old tile and shower

, moved up the shower head about a foot, installed all new back board, installed the new acrylic siding, shelves for hair products and a shower door. This was all done very professionally, on time (3 days) and with no mess. Ask for

I visited their showroom to review the finish options. They have a nice display and were very helpful. There is no sales pressure at all. They came to do an estimate at my home (no charge for this) and I scheduled service for the following week.
The service tech showed up when he said he would. He was friendly, courteous and explained what would be done. He did a very careful, neat job and the countertops look much better.
The only down side is the smell - it's pretty nasty, like airplane glue! But it was a mild day and keeping the windows open helped. By the next day, it was gone. If you can afford it, staying in a motel overnight might be a good way to go.
The only unknown is the long term durability, but I think with a little common sense care it will be fine. I would not hesitate to use these folks again.

I called them at the beginning of January about an issue with our showers. I called them again 1/12 and they said we were not in our system. On 1/16 I took time off of work, but he installer never showed up. I called

at their office and was told that we had the wrong date for the appointment. on 1/23, the installer did not show up per our scheduled appointment. He showed on 1/24 (but we weren't expecting him) and he didn't have necessary tool to fix the job. On 1/30 the installer did not show up. Upon calling the office, I spoke with

, and was told we were not on the schedule. The regular scheduler had an emergency and had not scheduled our appointment or any other appointments and they now have a waitlist for the installer. She said she would call us back and we've not heard from them.

They scheduled the appointment for the initial measurement. The men were on time and very friendly and professional. They called before the install to setup a convenient time for installation. They called before they arrived for installation. The men were proficient, professional and knowledgeable and quick with the installation. the installation was excellent. We are very pleased with our new counter top. They did an excellent job fitting, installing and the new custom sink is great. I love my new kitchen.
