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.

kI really like the first person who came.
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. He was professional, thorough, and friendly. He did all he could to reduce the odor of the surface product so that it did not permeate the house. The second worker who came the next day did not vent the bathroom when he put on the skid resistance product and I felt ignored my concern that the odor would spread through the house, April who I worked with by phone was friendly, professional and helpful. The bathtub looks new, You have to use only certain products to clean it but I am happy with the resurfacing.

First off, after an inquiry on this list, I was contacted by
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. She was as professional a CSR as I have ever dealt with. I took several pictures of the areas to be recolored and she promptly quoted the job. We scheduled the work and she sent me a list of cleaning and set-up instructions.
So, in advance I had removed the toilet, washed the floor and vacuumed thoroughly to prevent any dust that might compromise the job.
On the scheduled day
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was careful to not track sand and snow into the house. Throughout he was polite, knowledgeable and pleasant. He told me had worked many years as a tile
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and his construction knowledge clearly showed.
On that first day,
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
:

Removed the shower stall door (it was was pretty grubby and needed extensive cleaning, which I did);
Dug out all the old caulk and some grout which had been used in places that should have been caulk (he said that for grout, both sides of the joint must be tile or other non-moving material);
Took out all removable pieces like faucet covers, shower head, toilet paper holder, etc;
Scrubbed the surfaces to be glazed with acetone to be sure the glaze would stick;
Used paper and masking tape to cover everything which might catch any overspray (he even had special masking tape which could be reliably removed from wallpaper).
On the second day he sprayed everything, removed most of the masking, and cleaned up. There was minimal smell, no noise, no fuss, and no hassle. (He opened a window in the adjoining bed-room slightly. There is a low flow vent in the bathroom that is part of the condo ventilation system.)
We did not go in the bathroom for the recommended 72 hours to give the glaze time to properly

. After that I went in, removed the remaining masking which was quick and easy to do, replaced the shower stall door, faucet covers and shower head, and re-caulked everything with the caulk

had recommended. He had also left behind a tube of construction adhesive, which I used to remount the toilet paper holder in its hole in the tile.
I then laid a new self-stick vinyl tile floor over the old 1975 inch square tile (first a skim coat of mortar to fill in the grout lines in the old tile) and remounted the toilet. Presto,

- an amazing NEW bathroom. We couldn't be more pleased.
In recaulking the shower stall I notice three small paint drip/runs high up in a back corner. There is also a light abrasion
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
on one side which I know I caused but on inspection I think the glaze is thinner there than elsewhere so I think it may be a shared responsibility. I contacted
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and she offered to schedule a fix-it visit immediately. Since it is an hour plus drive for
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and our schedule was full then, I offered to wait until they are in the area again for the visit. That hasn't happened yet. When it does, I will report back. I fully expect to then change my Quality Rating from C to A.

Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
was extremely professional and extremely detail oriented! His prep work was amazing! He carefully masked off all the areas in the bathroom which were not being glazed, laid down floor coverings up the stairs and down the hallway to the bathroom, and set up an air vent so the odor was not over bearing to us. We had never had a tub/shower reglazed before and were a bit skeptical, but our tub and shower looks beautiful and brand new! We would definitely use

was wonderful. He showed up on time and was done with all the work within the window arrival time. He definitely knows what he's doing. The ding (about the size of a 50 cent piece) is totally gone. Even knowing where it was does not help me find it. It is like it never happened. I highly recommend

for any bathtub or sink repairs that you need. They also recommended me to replace the sink which had some rust on it, instead of doing the job anyway. I really appreciate that honesty and professional ethics.

The technician came in and taped and covered all surfaces. This took the
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
share of the time on the job, but everything came out neat and tidy. He then sprayed the tub. Came out looking like new. He went over things I needed to do after if cured and care of the tub. He said not to use regular bath mats since they could mar the surface. We were concerned about slipping and called the company. They told us about a product they could install relatively inexpensively, came out and did it.
We couldn't be happier.

Very good job- would highly recommend. Saved perfectly good cast iron tub, retiled surround and floor to give updated look. Reglazing vs breaking cast iron tub out and having to re-frame and replace tub with inferior and costly one was great option!

takes great care to explain process from start to finish.
Suffolk Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
is knowledgeable, experienced, professional, prompt, very neat--protected everything, as it's only a few hour process from start to finish. I plan to have him back to glaze my brick entry way. He is very accommodating and followed up on my satisfaction after a week.

Excellent.

arrived on time and worked very hard without stopping, even as we continued to offer food and drink. He was very professional and pleasant, with excellent communication skills. He put in a long day and the results were quite good.

offered one extra service, which we added, as we thought it provided good value for the price. At the end he explained everything about cleaning the bathtub surface and how long to wait to clean and use the tub. He also provided this information in writing, which is helpful to refer to.

also gave us brochures for
