"I bought my house about 5 years ago and recently I started to notice issues with the tub. After researching it a bit on my own I realized water was getting between" the old cast iron tub and the tub lining/molding that had been placed over top of it. I called around and settled on Bath Fitters because of their professional looking website and because they were local. My issue seemed serious because a plumber I had called earlier said I would probably need my old tub fitting cut out and a new one placed it. I explained all of this to the support agent on the phone at
. An estimator came out and once he looked at my tub he said, "That looks like our tub..." The estimator was then able to verify that my tub was actually installed by them 11 years ago under the previous owner. He then figured out that the previous owner replaced the caulking and did a very poor job of it which caused water to get behind it. Besides all of those issues, 11 years ago, new owner,
with the installation, Bath Fitters felt it was still just a service call and they fixed it all for free! I was completely stunned. I had felt this issue was going to cost me a ton of money and time but in less than a full day they diagnosed the issue, setup a service call, the technician came out, drained and sealed my floating tub, and they did it all for free. I highly recommend them to anyone after this because this support has been unparallelled.

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.

left with his $655.00, I was told not to use the tub for 24 hours, then to use cold water to wash the
sides and floor. The bathroom was so hot, the house smelled of the stuff they use and we didn't use the tub for 48 hours.
We noticed the flooring seemed to be damaged, one tile where

had thick knee pads on. Upon using the tub we discovered no safety flooring was applied, anyone using the tub has to enter
and exit with extreme caution. Being 75 years of age I had to be extremely careful. As of this day the floor is the same. The
crack was never attended to and I didn't bring the floor issue to

Back in 2011, we had tub refinished and all went well at that time, we were given a 5 year warranty on peeling. We called them to ask them to come look at the area around the drain (April 2013). We are still waiting for them to come. They said they would call us a couple days in advance when they would have someone in the area to look at it. That was fine with us, but they ended up calling the night before and we happened to not be home so they didn't come. They have done no follow up with us and have never again contacted us. The drain area around our tub continues to peel. Although the original job was done nicely and seemed good, they are not very good at the follow up.

Overall, I'm very happy with the work. Everyone from Bathfitter was very thorough, starting with the sales representative that gave me the estimate. He went through all the options and explained the entire process of what would happen. I felt very informed.
Scheduling was very easy and they took care of acquiring all the necessary permits from the city. Any time I called with a question, they were quick to get back to me and were very helpful.
The installer was wonderful! He covered all my carpets from the front door to the bathroom and did an incredible job. When he was finished, he went over everything with me and made sure that I was completely satisfied.
The price seemed a little high, but you get what you pay for and I'm incredibly happy with the finished product. I would definitely use Bathfitter again!

Ed arrived a few minutes early which is nice to see. after the introductions were complete, he started by laying out dropcloths for all his gear. He was working on the tub in no time flat and before you know it, he was done. Ed is very professional and cares about his job.
