was friendly, punctual, and professional. They even made a second visit to touch up the area around the drain after I replaced my old drain with a smaller one. My 50 year old tub looks like new!

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.

They were quick to respond and set up an appointment, and it was for a half price deal. The young man who did the work was courteous and finished the job quickly. Excellent work, tub looks new. Very reasonably priced. Gave me maintenance advice to maintain finish. I have already contacted them to redo my shower.

I called the company number and was happy to hear a human voice on the other end answering the phone--no messages to listen to nor buttons to push before actually speaking with someone. I had a few questions and was put through to the owner,

, who was courteous and answered all my questions. I scheduled an estimate for August 4th. The estimator,

, called a few minutes before the scheduled time to let me know he was on his way and he arrived right on time. He was courteous and professional. He gave me the estimate within a few minutes--answering any questions that I had. Calling to schedule an appointment was quick and easy. Again a real person promptly answered the phone, was pleasant and scheduled an appointment for me for August 19th. On August 19th the technician,

, called a few minutes before arriving on time to let me know he was on his way. He introduced himself and was also courteous and professional. He explained the process of what he was going to do. He put down a drop cloth and cleaned up periodically throughout the day. He also kept the room well ventilated. He removed all discarded material and cleaned up nicely. The only thing left was a very thin

of dust on all surfaces in the bathroom so I suggest that if you have your tub resurfaced you should take everything that is moveable out of the room. I just had to wipe down the walls and fixtures, wash the window, mop the floor and all was well. I am very pleased with the outcome of the job. The tub truly looks brand new! At the end of August I received a handwritten note from

I had used them years ago and they had done a fabulous job so I thought I'd have no worries with this job. Their initial contact was good. I thought I had made myself very clear about what I wanted. Their wait time to get started was way too long. When the worker came on the first day (about 2-3 weeks after initial contact), he started to put the acrylic up and I said that was not what we had asked for. The worker was very pleasant and informed me that what I wanted was not something they could do. Ultimately I cancelled the job and said I wanted my deposit back by the end of the business day. I also told the
Berea Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
back at their office that I not only will never use them again but I would not be recommending them to my friends or family. She called back a little while later and said they wanted to keep our business and would it be ok if a salesman came (with the refund check), look at the job and see if their was something that would make me happy. Reluctantly I said ok. I had to leave for an appointment so I told my husband to make the decision. When the salesman came to look at it, he brought some tiles and described to my husband how it would look with tile. With my agreement, my husband scheduled the work to be done in a few days. When they arrived he started to put up acrylic again. I told him we were expecting tile and a new contract depicting the scope of the new work. The worker said there wasn't a new contract, that he was doing what we had originally contracted for. I called the office and asked to speak with the salesperson who had come out. He said that they could not do what I originally wanted done. Yea, I know! Then he said they never intended to do tile, we must have misunderstood. He was rude and said they would either finish the job or refund my deposit. Clearly it wasn't a case of "the customer is always right". I reiterated that I would never use them again and I would not refer them to anyone who asked me for a recommendation. In the end, the workmanship was good, they gave us a $150 credit and replaced the hardware in both of our bathrooms in an effort to

What a great experience, and the results are stunning!

After visiting showroom we set up an in house estimate and viewing of samples. The rep was knowledgeable and professional, answered all questions and we setup a date to start work. Workman were on time, courteous and kept us informed the whole time. They were very careful to protect floors, cabinetry and closets. Their skill at their craft was obvious when you see the results. The process took 3 days to complete (we have a large bathroom) and the results are beyond our expectations. My wife and I are asthmatics and the only downside to the process was the chemical odor. The workman were very careful to keep everything masked off and even provided a ventilation system to remove the air and exhaust to outside. Even with that the odor kept us from sleeping in that bedroom for several days. In retrospect it would have been better not to stay in the house at all during the process. The odor (or outgassing) took another week before we could stop ventilating the room. We don't blame

they were up front about the odor, just a caution to those who are sensitive. Knowing what we know now we would definitely do this again, just not stay in the house during the process. We do wish
Berea Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
had photographs of recent work, it would have made the job of selecting colors and patterns much easier. What we were given was a 2 inch by 2 inch sample, hardly enough to determine what 300 square feel of refinished tile will look like. Customers want to see examples of recent work, other contractors do this. The website is NOT adequate to do this.
