I had an ugly green tub and now I have a great white one. It looks like a new tub. I received detailed directions for the care and maintenance of the tub. I will recommend this company to my friends.

"I had an older cast iron tub that I didn't want to get rid of so I called
at
. We had used him previously for" another tub and was anxious to use his services again. Needless to say the tub came out fantastic! The finish was perfect. Nice and smooth with no drips. We had this done back in
2014 and yesterday I emailed
because it looked like the paint on the grip surface of the floor was chipping.
emailed me back within minutes and scheduled to come out to the house today. The good news was that it was simply a light film of soap scum. I had been worried about using too much force while cleaning but
assured me of the durability of the finish plus the three year warranty. He cleaned the entire tub and I was more than happy to tip him for his time. I rarely have come across a company with such a great product and customer service. I would highly recommend
to anyone looking to refurbish an old tub as its well worth it.

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.

Prepped surfaces carefully, mixed colors to match existing surfaces, made a strong effort to contain fumes to the work area, took his time, and left the bathrooms clean and neat.
The only remaining question is how long refinished surfaces will last; time will tell.

Salem Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
gave us an estimate, helped us select the right color to refinish our bathtub, arrived on time and did a fabulous job. He pulled out all of the old caulk, created a slip free floor on the tub and re caulked. Just perfect and no additional charge. We would highly recommend him. A++

We used
Salem Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
about three years ago to resurface two bathrooms in a rental unit. We have been very pleased with their work and the way the surface has held up. So when we decided to re-do bathrooms at our house we decided to use them to resurface in two of our three bathrooms. Their work is excellent, and both bathrooms look like new. People who use this process need to remember to clean only with non-abrasive cleaners and nothing caustic. Both in our house and in the rental unit we did a mix of solid color surface (white or beige) and a stone look for some countertops. Turned out very well. The
Salem Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
representatives were professional, arrived when scheduled, and completed the job in the time frame scheduled. We would use them again. We have seen other examples of re-surfacing that didn't turn out as well and did not hold up under use.

The owner very prompt and professional. Responded quickly to my inquiry, described the work involved and, once we agreed on a day and time, he was here and ready to work. He said it would take about 4 hours and it did. Once completed, since I was unable to come by right away, he sent me before and after photos by cell phone, looked great. He provided all warranties and documents by email right after our phone conversation. All work was done well and as described, he re-caulked all areas around the base and tube enclosure professionally; I couldn't be more satisfied with the work, responsiveness and price. It is clear the owner takes pride in his craft.

Couldn't have done better this time! I had my tub done about 24 years ago by someone else who did an OK job and it certainly lasted. This time the job was done so much better it is amazing! The tub looks like brand new and is worth showing off! I love the work done. The care during the process minimized the dust created, the fumes were unpleasant but managed very well, and the completion of the work was artfully done.
I would HIGHLY recommend this company and

During the inquiry and selction process, the answers were prompt and informative. Great service provider and one that I can wholeheartedly recommend.
