"I cannot say enough good things about
. I was moving back into a house that had been rented for over 9 years. The two bathrooms were disaster areas. However,"
worked very hard to restore my shower and bathtub and they look like new! It was so much less expensive than redoing the two bathrooms, which was the alternative. I would definitely use
in the future and would recommend him to all my friends. I am already thinking about having him repaint the ugly pink tile in the upper bathroom!

"
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
DC .Once I spoke with the rep it was determine that my bathtub would need to be stripped to determine if my bathtub was eligible for there non toxic process which they call a permanent bathtub refinish. My appointment was set between 9am-10 am arrival time. The technician arrived on time for the job. He immediately introduce himself as
and then went on to explain the entire process? After stripping the bathtub
informed me that he could do the non toxic process on my bathtub .
began the process he had to make numerous trips to his van but during this process I couldn't smell anything he explained what he was doing and why he doing it. As time went on I began looking at my bathtub with pure excitement ,
told me he had one more step and the bathtub was finish. The bathtub came out really nice and it was my original bathtub with a nice
to the bathtub. It didn't have the painted look shine that my bathtub had when it was refinished with the paint it looked like the original bathtub.
went on to explained that the surface will never peel and the best way to keep it looking nice. I'm overall satisfied with my bathtub and the professionalism with
company. I will be contacting them to restore and color seal my grout lines in my master bathroom.

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 Washington

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.

was very pleasant, and when my contractors schedule had to change,

was able to send someone out within two days. The tech,

The two gentlemen from

Very pleased with our service. We used a $200 Angies List coupon for this job. The tub had been "glazed" before with latex paint, so he removed the paint, sanded and gave our tub a beautiful white finish. He didn't have the correct drain part at the first visit, but came back first thing the following morning to finish up. There were a few white smudges from his shoes on the stairs after he left, but they came right up. Would definitely recommend.

Overall it went great--we have used them twice and the results were excellent. The tubs look brand new without the hassle or expense of a new tub. The appointment had to be rescheduled by the provider a couple of times but other than that all went well.

They contacted us promptly, and scheduled an initial date which was cancelled because of snow, but they came the next week. It was a big job, required them to come back for a second day. They had to replace some cracked tiles, and also new faucets, etc. Bathrooms look great!
