came out and provided an estimate for the work to be done and patiently worked with my wife to make choices on colors. When the day came" to begin the work
showed us what he would be doing and described very well what to expect during and after the process. He carefully and expertly prepped the area and began working. My wife had a change of mind about colors during the process but
was very cooperative in making the adjustment. We added one extra item to the work and there was no issue with getting it done. Both
were the best and professional all the way. Definitely, a candidate for Angie's Choice Award.

are such lovely, competent, helpful people! They did a terrific job. They advised that it would probably be" more cost efficient to put in new tub surround but, due to specific circumstances, I found it better to resurface. I am glad I did.

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.

did a get job. He was extremely knowledgable and professional. We are waiting for a follow up appointment where he needs to smooth out some areas and once completed I will re-rate his service.
- Robin R.

She worked miracles on a tub that looked like it was ready for the dump - after she got rid of all the layers and got down to the real problems. It was a pricey job, but well worth it since removing the tub unit would have been much, much more costly!! I now have a new tub that better than brand new. Plus she warranties her work!!!
- Tamera Z.

The serviceman was punctual and went right to work, and there were no delays in completing the
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. The final finish was not uniformly smooth as I would've expected, and instead a bit "sandpapery" in places. Not so bad as to be cause for complaint, but something I noticed on close inspection and just a little bit disappointing. The sealant around the top
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
of the tub where the tub meets the wall tile was badly in need of redoing to begin with, but the
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
project left a "half and half" situation along about half its length, with brand new sealant up against the tub and the old, discolored sealant against the tile - sort of a half-black/half-white stripe where'd you'd want a nice uniform white strip seal. Since I knew resealing was going to be needed anyway, I didn't think this was complaint-worthy (tho' the little bit of extra effort to get the extra few millimeters of joint would've been nice). Lastly, I could've done without the oil drips in my clean driveway left by the service truck; but they were relatively few & small and just kind of a nuisance thing, not cause for formal complaint. Overall, I was happy to have the

at the deal price as it constituted a big improvement to be sure.

My old bathtub looks fabulous!

was efficient, pleasant and did a professional and thorough job. He explained everything in advance and did the job with a minimum of fuss and mess. I am very pleased with the job and would happily recommend

I am a happy customer!

was prompt and courteous throughout the experience. He gave me a quote on the phone for the work but lowered the price after he arrived and saw the actual size of the tub. My once pink tub is now the perfect bisque color. Then he reglazed the two white sinks to match the tub. I am very happy with the result and will use

again when I am ready to change the color of the pink tub in my other bathroom.

Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was FANTASTIC! He gave me a quote over the phone, told me about the process, came exactly when he said he would and did exactly what he promised! The tub looks like new. He was careful to explain how to maintain the surface and invited me to call if I had any concerns later.
During the process of preparing my home for sale I employed several contractors and he was the best. Would definitely use him in the future.

Our project took almost a month due to the company measuring the linen closet wrong. They had to order a new linen closet. Currently we are at a stand still over the bill for the tile. I must say working with
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and his staff mostly was a good experience. However, I cannot say the same thing for
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. I found her to be rude, and unprofessional. This was our experience with her. Currently we have a disagreement over the final bill. Regardless of the outcome I would not recommend this company based on my experience with
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. We had planned to have
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
remodel another bathroom but have made plans with another company. We have had many companies in our home to do work this is the first time we have ever had a problem with any company. Finally, . I did inform
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
that I would contact Angie's List and the BBB. Upon notifying her of our plans she sent them letters to justify why she thinks we owe them. We both feel strongly that we are right about the tile. Matter a fact during our last contact with her husband
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, told us to" forget it that it just wasn't worth it". He and my husband came to a agreement and he said he would send us a new invoice which we never received.. We only signed their customer agreement form and upon completion of the job gave then a certified check for the total amount due on the customer agreement form for the remodeled bath. What really bothers me about this company is if they thought we owed then why not put it into the customer agreement form. When we went with
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
to get the tile months before they did the job he specifically helped us find tile that would be within our budget. We selected the tile in March 2015 however, he purchased tile in
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. The tile was on sale in March. We were prepared to pay for the tile then but were told not to by
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. I do believe he told us the down payment covered the tile. We were told on the day of completion were owed more money.
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
should to learn from this experience. An estimate is not the same as a agreement. Be honest and let your clients know up front how much they will owe the company. Future customers make sure that they tell you up front the total cost. You might want to purchase your own tile yourself.. That is the mistake we made we should have purchased the tile. They do quality work. However that has noting to do with their billing.

was the ultimate professional. He explained the resurfacing process and how he planned to vent the fumes created by the chemicals. He was neat, clean, and left the place tidy.
Allentown Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was very personable and was happy to assist with all my questions.
Our dull surfaced, tired looking, hard to clean, fiberglass, one-piece tub/shower was transformed into a gleaming white focal point of the bathroom. Now it is so much easier to clean and no longer an eyesore. The whole process only took a day! It was much less expensive to resurface than to tear out and rebuild. Why did we wait so long???
