"They quoted a price to resurface a tub that our former contractor had left in serious disrepair. When he started working on the tub, he was able to clean the gunk" left in the tub without having to resurface the tub and charged $500 less than he had originally quoted. The tub looks good as new. I will definitely use again.

"Contractor from H*** and I was threatened by
the owner of
and Tile
in writing!
" and Tile
is a scam! Please continue to read and I explain how the scam works. My wife and I own 7 rental properties. We were referred
and Tile
by a tile contractor that we used on 4 different jobs.
and Tile
failed to achieve a chemical bond causing the new paint to come off at multiple locations of each of the 2 tubs. Corners, sides, walls, floor, behind curtain, inside and outside the tub, all were failing on both tubs. My wife called
the owner of
and Tile
to inform him that there is a spot that the paint was failing.
quickly said "that is where they had a bottle" (nothing can be left on his product or it will cause failure), without even seeing the tub. It turns out that the defect was on a wall where a bottle could not be placed. While warranty repairing the tub he blamed my tenants for the problem. Later I call
to inform him that the second tub has failed at multiple spots, again
quickly blames it on bottles, mats and other causes. While
and I were inspecting his failed work, he said and I quote "there is a good chemical bond". Liar, liar. If he can't admit there is problem with his work, then how can I expect any of his repairs to last? I can't afford to disrupt my tenants for years to come when I will just receive more of the same. While I felt that a complete refund is the only solution,
was enraged that I would not allow him back to continue to do sub-par work, blame my wife, myself, and my tenants for his incompetence.
hung up on me multiple times, always calling back saying did we get dropped? or did you hang up on me?, because i didn't hang up on you. Liar liar. Here is how the scam works. #1 LACK OF CRAFTSMANSHIP Failure to achieve lasting results. #2 BLAME GAME He will blame everyone and everything except his work. #3 BULLYING You will be threatened when you decide not to continue warranty and tell others about your experience. #4 CONSUMER GIVES UP without reporting the problem. Just wanting to move on, over time you realize that you only paid $220 and we tried but it just didn't work in our case. #5 MOVES ON TO THE NEXT UNSUSPECTING CONSUMER
said in writing "he'll wish he hadn't" when referencing that I would leave a negative review. I was considering a restraining order against
in fear of retaliation against myself, my wife, tenants or properties. I have never written a negative review before, but this needed to be exposed.

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.

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.

Technician was very prompt and professional. He explained the process and answered all our questions. The job turned out better than expected.

and his team did a fantastic job. I received a quote to remove and install a new cast iron tub in the bathroom and it was going to cost over $3,000. So happy I found these guys. They were clean, prompt and professional. I cannot recommend them higher then I have. Call them today!
- Tim S.

Our sales representative was really nice and professional. No heavy pressure and he did a great job of explaining all of our options. After his presentation, we had additional questions a few days later and he was very responsive in answering them. After we placed our order, it took several weeks to schedule an installation date because each shower is custom-made to your specifications. We knew that in advance, so it was not a shock. The total installation, which was done by one worker, was completed in only two days. We had a small issue, but it was cheerfully and pleasantly handled to our satisfaction by the office staff.
Although using

is probably not the cheapest route to go, it is definitely the fastest. Consider, for example, how long it would take to have a contractor demo,

tile, handle the plumbing, etc. The quality of the materials is first-rate and we enjoyed working with all of the employees associated with the company. We would definitely use them again and would recommend their product/service.

Came out well. Looks fantastic. There was some running of the finish where there are some minor drip
Havelock Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, that's why I gave it a "B".
Very punctual. He actually did the caulking which I thought I would need to do afterwards. Sure beats ripping out the tub and tile. We will get many years out of this before we need to redo the whole bathroom.
- Scott S.

He hung protective sheets over everything around the tub area. He cleaned out old caulk and repaired any imperfections in the tile. He then applied about six layers of porcelain glaze. The spray gun is quite loud so it would be wise to use ear protection while he is spraying.
- beverly K.

Short version: great work, great employees, I'd use them again. Long version: the area right next to the drain of our iron bath tub had slowly rusted out and a leak developed. Several contractors I emailed said that the only option was to rip out the tub (which also requires ripping out tiles adjacent to the tub), which -- as you can imagine -- is an expensive (several thousands of dollars) and multi-day project. After extensive googling, I found
Havelock Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, and am glad I did. Why? (1) professional/"squared away" -- returned calls promptly, provided detailed written estimate (2) personnel -- the guys I dealt with in person (one was TJ and I forget the other guy's name) were professional, courteous, worked efficiently, and left the workspace clean. (3) fair price -- obviously a lot cheaper than replacing the tub...I don't know of anyone else who offers the same sort of repair service, so I can't give and apples-to-apples comparison, but I was fine with the ~$900 cost. (4) Quality results -- tub looks great, so far the repair has held up 110% aok. (I will update this review if anything changes on that front).
The only heads-up I would provide -- and PTR did alert me to this ahead of time -- is that after the work is done, there are strong fumes that remain for ~24 hours. So make sure to have fans to vent the work space!! Do not underestimate how strong the fumes will be!! :-)
TL;DR: I never write reviews, but was so favorably impressed with these guys I thought it was only fair to do so. Excellent work, good price, good service, good employees.

Pat is one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of coming in contact with, and a great sense of humor. He was extremely professional, came in did the job cleaned up and left. The tile and bathtub he glazed looks brand new and beautiful. Everyone that saw it was impressed with the finished product, as I am. Very happy with my decision to use
