"We had a crack in our bathtub.
was the only one out of several providers to realize that our existing tub was a cheap plastic (not fibreglass)" unit that couldn't be repaired. He took the time to come out a second time to explain all the options available. We decided to go with a shower tub instead of a bath tub. He and his team showed up on time and went to work immediately. They covered all floors to the bathroom and all open surfaces in the bathroom.
stayed for a couple of hours to ensure his crew had everything they need and all our questions were answered. Once the job was finished the crew cleaned up all debris and left us with a clean updated bathtub

"The whole process was great ( from order, scheduling and the ultimate work).
should up to my home within the scheduling window. He took" off his shoes and surveyed the tub and existing caulk. He got right to work. He was pleasant, professional, courteous. The new caulk looks great and made the tub area look brand new. Once he was done, he cleaned up the area and i viewed the work. He was neat and efficient. He didn't take a long time to provide service. he also provided me tips on keeping my tub and caulk clean. Thank you again
!!

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.

What if your bathtub could be transformed in one day from embarrassing to your bathroom's sparkling centerpiece?

If you can buy a new bathtub for about the same cost as getting one refinished, why not just buy a new one?

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 did a very good job and the person working on the tub was friendly. The tub looks so much better. The finished surface is a little more gritty than I had imagined it would be so dirt defiantly clings to the surface very easily which is something we had not anticipated. However, if the surface came out perfect like a new tub it would be really slick which the tub is not. It was also great that they have a white that matched all of our new

I contacted this company on
Ludlow Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
6, and the owner provided me with an estimate over the phone (which was lower than other estimates I had received) and scheduled the work for later in the week. He arrived on time and completed the work quickly. I was very pleased with the finished product--the tub looked like new, and the hole in the bottom was repaired and not visible. In addition, the owner reduced the price as he indicated the hole was smaller than what I mentioned over the phone. I was very pleased with the services I received.

The team from Pro Finish arrived on time and explained the entire process. Both men were very concerned about cleanliness and how they did their job. Both were very friendly. They explained every step of the process which was very helpful. They made sure we understood how long it would take to dry and when we could use it. The bathtub looks great. I would recommend Pro Finish for their services.

The folks who answer the phone don't seem to know much about the business, and are maintaining a calendar that doesn't seem to matter. My estimate happened a few hours late because somebody was "double booked." Once the work actually happened,

did a good job. He was, unfortunately, more than an hour late for that appointment too.
The work quality is good, and I want to support this business, but I also want to hire people that show up when they say they will. When I'm waiting at home for contractors, I'm losing income because I take work off to do so.
