"They did a TERRIBLE job. Initial spray came out very course and rough. Came out again and refinished - same problem. We finally gave up thinking they didn't" know what they were doing. Beware of these guys. Our tub looks aweful and hope this doesn't happen to the next person.

"Provider was prompt to schedule and complete work. I had old fake marble vanity in bathroom and wanted an updated look. The finished product was a vast improvement!" If you want a more modern look but don't want to spend a fortune and have a messy demolition to deal with, this is the way to go.

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 no call no showed. Called and left a message about it and no response. Finally got them on the phone, and she said she could not look at schedule and talk on the phone at the same time. Said she would call me right back, and no call as of now, which is 3 hrs later.

Overall an excellent end result. The work was completed in one day with no issues and looks like a brand new installation.

took the time to repair the minor chips and nicks in the tile and provided a quality product. He stopped by the next afternoon to make sure the finish cured properly and touched up a few areas. The work was complicated somewhat by rain showers and working around another contractor that was doing work on the front porch at the time.

adapted easily and got straight to work with no issues.
The odor associated with the process is quite strong during the installation and for a few hours afterwards, but dissipates quickly.

Scheduled promptly but did not communicate clearly when

had to reschedule. Showed on on time and did an excellent job on the rescheduled date. Reduced the bill by $25.00 due to the rescheduling snafu.

and his wife were very professional, gracious and courteous. Showed up on time. Set up his equipment -- vent fan to the window to minimize the fumes, liners to cabinets, floor mats. The reglaze bathtub is SUPERB! Like new! They cleaned up and left the bathroom in a spic-and-span. Very happy to know them through Angie's list. I will recommend

took great pains to prep and protect our bathroom before doing any spraying or sanding. He was up front with me all the way through the process about what could lead to additional cost, or what we were hoping to find to give me best value. Like many jobs, sometimes you don't know exactly what you're getting into until you start, and I was very impressed with the communication to keep me posted throughout. The fact that the finished product looks great is only a bonus. I would definitely use

again.

The bathtub is very cheap, plus they chipped it. They just painted over it but its still chipped in a bad spot. There were ceramic pieces all over the tiles and on bathroom walls. There was tile on the wall and they removed it, but you can see ripples in the wall from where it was. He just covered them with plaster. The toilet is uneven and rocks. He said he would provide all materials. But he didn't he didn't, I had to go buy a light. Then there was an issue with the exhaust fan. He charged me an extra 200 dollars to install it. The electrician put the plugs on the wrong wall. They installed a shelf in a terrible spot. I had to buy paint my self. I wanted vinyl flooring but he showed up with ceramic tile and just placed it on top of the old vinyl. The owner of the company sent this man who did everything by himself who couldn't see too well. They never returned to see if I was happy with the work and just had the workers pick up the check.
