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.

Acrylic bathtub surrounds are a great, cost-effective option to cover the walls around your tub.

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.

The project went very well. They were very professional and courteous and I am very pleased with the work. They showed up when they said they would and stayed late to complete the job within the time frame they promised.

performed the work professionally, expediently, and without taking extended breaks. The final product was beyond my expectations. He turned my 60+ years-old bathtub into a gleaming gem! Everyone who has seen it asks if I had a new bath installed - REALLY!

The salesperson who came out was not high pressure. She was very good and knowledgeable about her products and services. It took about six weeks to get it done, but when they came out, they came out first thing in the morning and were done by 6:00 that evening. They were very efficient. I would definitely recommend them to anybody.

Sorry, I forget the name of the young man who did the job. But, he was superb in communication and keep us in the loop as he was working. He mixed the color and made sure that we agreed on it before proceeding. It is almost a month now and the re-glazed stall looks beautiful. I was impressed how he methodically taped off the edges, glass door, shower arm, etc., At the end, he left no smudges and cleaned up the area. The bath stall looks as good as new.
He seems to take enough precautions in exhausting the area with his own fan, etc.,
Prior to the job, the communication was very smooth and the process was explained clearly.
It was great working with A1
