"Although the finished product seems to be satisfactory, there was not much attention to protecting the bathroom from over spray. After the technician left I was" left with a rough film coating on the sink, toilet, fixtures and faucets. The adjacent closet was also left with a film on the floor since apparently is was not covered during the process. The caulking around the tub was not refinished as nicely as what I already had around the tub.

"They came out to measure and look at the surface of the tub and the tile first then provided me with the price and contract. I scheduled the appt at at point with" someone in the ofiice. All went well as planned and I'm so happy with it. What a differnce this made in how my bathroom looks now! it was looking old, tired and outdated - now it look clean and new! I felt so good about it i changed the soap dish, cup holder, shower curtain and rod and the towel rods. Love it.

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.

They did an excellent job. They were very professional. I had some concerns and spoke to the owner beforehand. I had to reschedule and they were fine with that. The person that came out was on time and very knowledgeable. The fumes were very strong and I would recommend scheduling a few days to let it air out.

We had a leak in the upstairs bathroom which was causing water to drip from the shower through to the ceiling of the main level.

came by and caulked the tub. A few weeks later when a much smaller leak emerged from a different area of the bathroom, he came back promptly and caulked the shower head, at no extra charge. This in my mind was above and beyond the service that I have received from other contractors in the past. I highly recommend

I am so pleased with how this turned out. I had an estimate months before and it took a little while for the job to get rolling due to coordination issues with other subcontractors. I live in a co-op building in DC with lots of rules about redoing a bathroom, so I decided to use
Washington DC Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
to refinish the walls and floor tile which would have cost several thousands more to remove. The technician was friendly and prompt, The only hiccup during work was that we had parking issues due to the city deciding to block off two streets around my building with zero notice. But we were able to get those resolved. The timeline changed a little bit prior to the job, and we had made hotel reservations (its our only bathroom and we would have no toilet), so communication could have been better on that front as we had to change our plans on short notice. But they were very easy to work with. The results were stunning-- my bathroom looks brand new. I am going to be hiring them again for the tile in my kitchen. I have also recommended them to several co workers who are doing remodels.

I was moving back into a house that had been rented for over 9 years. The two bathrooms were disaster areas.
However,

It was so much less expensive than redoing the two bathrooms, which was the alternative.

was quick to respond to my inquiry and to schedule the job. The workers showed up promptly and set to work, which outcome looked fabulous. The only complaint I had was that they left white dust all over the apartment's hardwood floors and left white stains on a new, upholstered chair which they apparently sat in. Overall, I was satisfied with the job but irritated that they left a mess.

After having a bathtub refinish 3 years ago by a major franchise it started to peel. I contacted that provider but they stated that my warranty was 5 years but it was voided since it was a water drip that caused my bathtub to peel. They wanted to charge me to refinish the bathtub again but I refuse to have them do it again since the last time it didn't hold up. I then did some research about bathtub refinishing only to find out bathtub refinishing will always peel after a period of time. During that period of researching I came across a company that had a no peel guarantee and it was also non toxic process. I gave them a call to see if they service

The representatives that I talked with were very courteous and professional. They suggested the most cost-effective way for my bathroom tiles over the tub to be refurbished rather than replaced. The service people who did the work were punctual, did excellent work, and cleaned up so well after themselves that the only way one would know that they had been there was that the bathroom tub and tiles looked like new.
