"
was extremely professional and extremely detail oriented! His prep work was amazing! He carefully masked off all the areas in the bathroom" which were not being glazed, laid down floor coverings up the stairs and down the hallway to the bathroom, and set up an air vent so the odor was not over bearing to us. We had never had a tub/shower reglazed before and were a bit skeptical, but our tub and shower looks beautiful and brand new! We would definitely use
again... and have actually already referred
to friends of ours that couldn't believe it wasn't a brand new tub!! Thanks for doing such a great job
!

"
was wonderful. He showed up on time and was done with all the work within the window arrival time. He definitely knows what he's doing." The ding (about the size of a 50 cent piece) is totally gone. Even knowing where it was does not help me find it. It is like it never happened. I highly recommend
for any bathtub or sink repairs that you need. They also recommended me to replace the sink which had some rust on it, instead of doing the job anyway. I really appreciate that honesty and professional ethics.

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 - 

http://indigochreblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/img_0835.jpg

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 Sterling Heights

The technician came in and taped and covered all surfaces. This took the
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
share of the time on the job, but everything came out neat and tidy. He then sprayed the tub. Came out looking like new. He went over things I needed to do after if cured and care of the tub. He said not to use regular bath mats since they could mar the surface. We were concerned about slipping and called the company. They told us about a product they could install relatively inexpensively, came out and did it.
We couldn't be happier.

Very good job- would highly recommend. Saved perfectly good cast iron tub, retiled surround and floor to give updated look. Reglazing vs breaking cast iron tub out and having to re-frame and replace tub with inferior and costly one was great option!

takes great care to explain process from start to finish.

is knowledgeable, experienced, professional, prompt, very neat--protected everything, as it's only a few hour process from start to finish. I plan to have him back to glaze my brick entry way. He is very accommodating and followed up on my satisfaction after a week.

Excellent.

arrived on time and worked very hard without stopping, even as we continued to offer food and drink. He was very professional and pleasant, with excellent communication skills. He put in a long day and the results were quite good.

offered one extra service, which we added, as we thought it provided good value for the price. At the end he explained everything about cleaning the bathtub surface and how long to wait to clean and use the tub. He also provided this information in writing, which is helpful to refer to.

also gave us brochures for

Reported on time as agreed. Told me bathtub was in fair shape to begin with. But a new coat would help ,if we wanted it. No pressure. We had it done and its great. Took about two hours. Clean up and all. Smell was bad, but with his fan in window and door closed it helped . Smell was gone by evening. We are very pleased with work and woulld call TUB-N=COUNTER again.

Other than the fact that this all took place over the Christmas holidays, it went great. It took about a week longer than we anticipated...again, probably due to the holiday season, but still considerably shorter time that any of the other contractors we got bids from quoted. We knew this was going to be a dirty and dusty job, which it certainly was, but the workmen made every effort to cover floors, rugs, etc. and keep doors closed to contain the dust. (Still very dusty). They cleaned up after themselves every day before they left, and kept us apprised of their progress and any problems that arose. We found all --ALL -- the workmen to be congenial, professional, thorough and extremely hardworking. We did discover s problem with one of the faucets s few days after the job was completed, but when we called
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, they promptly arranged for a workman to come out and the problem was fixed the very next day. We love our new bathroom...just wish we'd done it years ago. And we would use
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
again and recommend them without reservation.

An appointment was scheduled to do the work in a timely fashion. I was called with instructions prior the service as I was told would happen. The provider came on time and the work was performed in a professional manner.
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was polite, professional and knowledgeable ... and a very, very hard worker. He worked for many hours to prepare the tub for
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and did all possible to contain the inevitable dust generated by the procedure. FYI, the actual chemical
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
has a very strong smell, but dissipated within a few hours with the windows open and ceiling fans on. In that the bathtub is quite old (like ~100 years) and much of the porcelain has been removed by years of cleaning, I am pleased with the appearance of the tub.

repaired numerous chips and dings without additional cost although the contract stated that more than three would be extra. In addition
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
recommended an 2nd coat of high build primer to help even out the surface, which I elected to have done ($100). Although the surface is not perfectly smooth like a new tub I am satisfied that all was done to provide me with the best possible result considering the original condition of the tub.
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was here about 6.5 hours - he took care with the work and did not cut corners from what I know. There are special instructions for care of the tub (verbal and written) and you will have to ask me down the road about the durability of the surface, etc. There is one year guarantee on the work. There is a travel fee if the work is more than 20 miles from
Sterling Heights Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
Park. The deal coupon stated that is would be $15 but I was charged $30 because of additional distance - a surprise to me but fair enough. The only unanticipated problem I encountered was that replacing the caulk between the bathtub and the wall ended up being my responsibility. I did not understand this would be the case and in that I am not handy, want the job done correctly, do not have time to take care of this myself, and have yet to find someone to come out to take care of this - I am a week out and still cannot use the tub/shower.

It went well. The person who did the job took great pains to be sure surrounding surfaces were covered (they use a spray). The odor was pretty strong for about a day afterwards, but then there is not a lot of ventilation in that room. The shower looks great. It has been a few months since it was done and it still looks like new.
