Options abound when shopping for a new bathtub, whether taking on a complete bathroom remodel or just cleaning up the room's appearance.
Gone are the days of a large, jetted bathtub being a must-have for a 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 Winston Salem
was was handled in a professional manner from soup to nuts. I highly recommend them for refurbishing old tubs.
When the installation crew (2 guys) arrived, they were on time and immediately went to work. They covered my floors before starting work and were very courteous and professional while there. Once finished, they completely cleaned up and left no mess for me to deal with. In fact, by the time I realized they were through for the first day, all their debris was removed from my home and everything was cleaned.
I could tell this wasn't their first installation. They were efficient and professional; they knew exactly what they were doing and there was no wasted time at all...a very very good experience.
The final product is exactly what I wanted. The shower encloser itself (the three walls of the shower) is one single piece and not 3 pieces that are attached together in the corners. I like this because I feel it reduces the chances of future leaks or water infiltration behind the shower walls. The shower's glass doors and hardware, and all the extras I chose to customize it, are absolutely beautiful.
I couldn't be happier.
He took the time to meet with us and find out what we really wanted and put up with us in the beginning with all the decisions we wanted to make (or didn't want to make). After the final meeting to go over everything he came back to us with a price. We weren't shocked by what it would cost, but it was only slightly higher than what we budgeted. That being said, he really educated us on the details of the project and afterward we were satisfied that the price was fair.
The day that work started the crew showed up and started placing protective barriers everywhere to protect the rest of our home that was not being remodeled. They kept the job clean and neat the entire time, and that meant a lot to us neat freaks. Our experience with has been incredible throught this complicated remodel project. Other than great quality work and his job leadership, we have to say that the very best thing was his willingness to openly and honestly communicate with us. He kept us informed, and was straight with us every step of the way.
Simply, they did what they said they would do. They under-promised and over-delivered in our opinion. GREAT JOB overall, and AGAIN, We will call them back for our next project.
