What if your bathtub could be transformed in one day from embarrassing to your bathroom's sparkling centerpiece?
If you can buy a new bathtub for about the same cost as getting one refinished, why not just buy a new one?
Looking for bathroom ideas that won't break the bank? Try refinishing the bathtub or hiring a pro for a tub liner installation.
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.
Bathtub Refinishing reviews in Williamsburg
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.
If all the screw ups wasn't bad enough, he threatened to not complete the job unless I paid him for partially completed work and kept playing the sympathy card about how he's a good man taking care of kids that aren't his.
In the end, I paid
This is subhuman behavior and he should be treated as such.
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
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 "
I simply cannot explain how FANTASTIC a job
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
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
MUST admit, I have peeked in 2 or 3 times..to see how GORGEOUS it all looks! I can't recommend
as well as his work-ethics, enough. Honestly, I wish I could find EVERY contractor as great as
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
I received any discounts, favors, or payments for this review. It's simply an honor to know a true craftsman, like
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.
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
Buyer beware here. Big time. don't say you weren't warned.
of the tub only, however when i went back after his job was done, i noticed he painted the outside of the tub as well. Thank you
I highly recommend his work.
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
* I also purchased a 5 year warranty for an additional $50 dollars- so if I experience any chipping he will come back and repair.
