's price was inline with what I expected and he was transparent in the cost breakdown so I knew what was being charged. On the day of" service, he arrived early and was helpful in walking me through the process so I understood all the steps and his time frame. He and his assocate took great care to cover any items that could not be removed from the kitchen or bath. This was helpful because, no matter their care, there was going to be dust from the stripping and spraying. (don't think this is a clean process!) The end result was fantastic! I am extremely pleased with his work, his customer service, and his general good nature.
is a hoot! His pricing was the best I found and his work was solid and efficient.

"We called Bathfitter because we thought we could put an enclosure over our existing tub. The salesman said that we had to put in a new tub due to the type of tub" we had. We were getting ready to sell our house and the old enclosure needed updating. He guaranteed a fast turnaround so we agreed to let Bathfitter put in a new tub, enclosure and fixtures. I had stressed to the salesman more than once that the tub we had was very small. When the new tub came, it was two inches bigger than the tub we had. By the time the installer realized it, my old tub was in pieces on my front lawn. We would have appreciated being told that the new tub was going to be bigger and stick out a bit before we made a decision. When the installer called the office, the salesman told him to just notch out the studs. When the installer called the office, I could hear the salesman yelling at him. The installer put me on the phone with the salesman who was very nasty and told me to put the installer back on the phone because it was him and the salesman. Luckily, the installer was smart enough to know that the tub was on a support wall. Also, when the installer was removing the old tub, he made a small nick in my brand new kitchen cabinet. After the ordeal, I received a call from company asking if I was satisfied. I told them this whole story and all they did was send me a coupon for a free grouting. I don't know what good that was going to do me since the tub was new. It wasn't transferable as far as I know so I threw it out. I would rather deal with a company that is more honest and would have taken the time to explain that tub was going to be larger before we signed.

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.

He did less than 3/4 of the work, damaged my house, tricked me into paying his for him entire bill and then left me with the mess.
He doesn't do any of the work himself and hires the cheapest sub-contractors that'll treat your house like garbage dump and will p*** on your floors and damage work done by others.

Now, I'd like to tell ALL who may read this, a few things about the amazing service that
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
First, I want to acknowledge that the PRIMARY reason I joined Angie's list...was in the hope that might find
someone, relatively nearby, who would even agree to take a look at this sweet but VERY old cottage. This,
basically original 1926, single wall shack...has been getting harder & harder to find people who are even familiar
with many of it's built-ins. I have both the original, built-in..& HUGE bathtub, as well as an incredibly unusual
original sink.
I had been searching for YEARS...trying to find a company who still had enough knowledge, & respect, for the
original objects...that homeowners, like myself, try desperately to maintain. I searched through most of the providers
of this type of work...that were on Angie's list. I READ almost all the recent reviews that others had taken the time
to write, paying special attention to those that were within 50-100 miles of where I live. Those reviews, I can
honestly say, pushed me over my initial fears, to give "
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
" a try.
I simply cannot explain how FANTASTIC a job
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
did!!! He arrived exactly when he said he would. For his
next appointment, the long one ...in which he, alone, would be doing all the work, I knew he'd be coming from
another job on
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. I never even expected him to be able to be on time! However, even for this, he called to
let me know he may be 15 minutes late. Such attention to details. THOUGH...it's the QUALITY of his work that
is so remarkable!! He brought all his own, heavy equipment. Though I offered, he denied needing any help. I
practically had to FORCE him to allow me to give him a cold glass of fresh squeezed OJ! This was on a very hot
day, too. He'd even come prepared for this: he brings his own, huge fan with him!
It's been almost 3 days since he finished. He advises to allow these 3 days to pass, without using the room at
all, till he's sure it's had plenty of time to dry & stay set...without any
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
of disturbing it. I was so thrilled, I
MUST admit, I have peeked in 2 or 3 times..to see how GORGEOUS it all looks! I can't recommend
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
's work,
as well as his work-ethics, enough. Honestly, I wish I could find EVERY contractor as great as
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
has been. If
you're reading this review, RUN...don't walk...& do yourself a big favor. HIRE HIM!! I guarantee you'll never regret
it. Just in case someone doubts my sincerity... let me assure you, I am NOT related to
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
in any way. Nor have
I received any discounts, favors, or payments for this review. It's simply an honor to know a true craftsman, like

, from ME, in that old beach cottage

- Carolyn E.

They kept us informed throughout the whole process. It was a two day job and it was completed within those days. They cleaned the area.
We selected Bathfitter despite it being more expensive than the other two we considered. They exuded CONFIDENCE in that the job would be done right and we were not disappointed.
- Colette S.

First off, I'll say that I was not the original customer, so I won't be in his database. I purchased a home in June. The previous owners left me this man's business card, advised me that he had resurfaced the tub, and the work was covered by a five year warranty. The first time I turned on the water, the finish cracked in three places. The jets are all painted shut, there is dog hair painted in to the finish. I called and got the voicemail, left a detailed message explaining who I was and asked in the message if the work was indeed covered by a warranty. Three voicemails and an email went with no response. I got someone else to answer the phone on a thursday afternoon before the 4th of
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
- he told me he was the employee that painted the tub, they stood by the work, and he would call me back as soon as possible to schedule the "fix". In the mean time, crickets. I called again and finally left a message for the man telling him that I assumed his silence meant that there is a warranty that he intends not to honor. A
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
response here would have gone a long way.
The work was below second class and the work ethic even lower. I'm sure he'll reply back that he doesn't know anything about his work, I am mistaken and must have the wrong provider. I moved here out of state, so unless the previous owners whipped out a can of spray paint, did the work themselves, then got on their printer and made a nice home-made looking business card, AND hired someone to answer this guys phone when the owner went on vacation for the 4th of
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
, I'd say he's the guilty party. This business is obviously p***-poor based on the other reviews. The quality of his work and inability to follow up with issues leaves much do be desired. I'm searching out another provider on Angie's list with reputable reviews and realizing i'll pay a premium to fix this mess.
Buyer beware here. Big time. don't say you weren't warned.

did an excellent excellent job
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
our super old clawfoot tub. It was so old that we could tell it was glazed many times before.
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked

Another company would not even take the job as their technician said it was beyond resurfacing.
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
did a fantastic job and were happy to help, again the technician was a true perfectionist and did fantastic work.

Bad job done. Will not return to fix or refund. No communication to resolve issue.
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and his wife came to my home on September 1st to do a repair to a crack in a fiberglass tub, reglaze it, and reglaze a countertop. I paid them $475 and it looked fine until 2 hours after they left when it started to dry. The tub has runs in the glaze, bubbles, and spots that look like it had been hit or bubbles burst. A small crack remains in the sidewall of the tub and therefore it is still not able to be used. The countertop has overspray and feels like sandpaper and has uneven coverage.(I did tell them my cat jumped on the counter and made 2 paw prints, but they had to return anyway to fix errors on their part and said it was not a big deal and would take care of it) I notified them the same day of service. They promised to return to fix it. Three different appointments were made over the next month. They would not show up at the appointment time and I would contact them to ask if they were coming. They would say yes and then still not come, keeping waiting all day. I even confirmed one morning that they were coming and stayed home from work to make sure this was taken care of. They did not come. After the third occasion of not showing up for the repair, I texted
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
(the main way we had been communicating). He did not respond. That was Friday, September 25th. I waited until midday Tuesday to text and ask for a refund to be able to fix the bathroom. He again did not respond. I told them by text that I was going to get someone else to fix the bathroom. Another business has said it will cost additional money to sand off what
Williamsburg Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
has done and reglaze to make it right. In the end, it is costing me MUCH more money to repair what they did to the bathroom. The vanity mirror was hit by their paint and well as some on the floor. Luckily I was planning on replacing the floor, but the large mirror will be an added expense.
- Amanda S.

Called them to reglaze my kitchen sink on a house I just purchased. Backstory: My sink was an odd shape so it was impossible to order/buy a replacement. My only option was to have my granite countertops removed (risk the granite breaking) to cut a hole sufficient to fit a new sink. Long story short decided to just get the sink reglazed. It went smoothly, happy with results & would recommend his services. The only thing I would prepare for is that your home will get a little smelly so prepare, e.g. open all windows and expect it to stink for a while. Hello Febreeze. Goodbye ugly sink.
* I also purchased a 5 year warranty for an additional $50 dollars- so if I experience any chipping he will come back and repair.
