"Really great work. Nice guys, including communicating over weekend and determining a time up front and job price from the description I offered. Work done as bid and the tub looks like new.

"We hired
Ave Tub to refinish our cast iron bathtub as part of our bathroom remodel. The scheduling process went fine, and we were able to" get someone in pretty quickly, but the experience we had was AWFUL. The person doing the work was extremely careless. How? 1) They damaged the paint on our walls in several (at least 10) places 2) They left our bathtub with drips EVERYWHERE. The entire front of the tub has lines of drips all the way across, and the inside has more. 3) They broke a window. The smell of their product is overwhelmingly awful, actually made me sick. When the person performing the service was here, he asked to open a window in our son's playroom for ventilation. Made sense because of the pungent smell. When we got back to the house later, the window he used was completely broken. What's better is that the serviceman said that he didn't do it. Like the window was like that... Umm, NO! Because yeah, we're the type of people that would allow for broken glass in our son's playroom. Makes sense. My husband called their office and they offered to repair the window and fix their poor job on the tub, however, they were not flexible about the scheduling.

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 -

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.

Our job was a little tricky because we had an old tiled area and an inlaid soap holder above the tub that our contractor recommended

instead of re-tiling. But there are so many surfaces and crevices to the tile, it makes it harder to apply this product well. Our contractor cleaned and re-grouted the tiling before

was very professional and did a fine job applying the product. The smell was very unpleasant and did not dissipate as quickly as
Portland Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
said it would. It took a few days to clear. We did have to call him to come back shortly afterwards to touch up a few small missed areas. He did this at no charge and he also came a 2nd time when we called because there were a couple more problem areas developing. Those areas turned out to be more of a problem with the caulking but he touched them up anyway.
All in all, we are happy with the product now as it is 6 months later and holding well. B for quality only because while it looks nice now, it seems fragile. We have to be careful not to leave the tub wet or use stainless steel or suction-cupped items in the tub area. The bottom of the tub is very smooth and slippery. It has been relatively easy to clean despite not being able to used abrasive cleaning agents on it.

The salesperson showed up on time and was very professional. She did a great job and her boss is luck to have her. She was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable about her product. She looked at our tub/shower, asked questions about what we wanted to do and what we didn't. She then went through a brief Powerpoint presentation with us in the kitchen on how the job might go and more information about the company and product. In the end though, the product wasn't what we are looking for and the price quoted, $7,000, is way out of bounds for the goal of just replacing the bath/tub after doing a demo on the existing. This price does not include any plumbing or new prmetal hardware (shower head, hot/cold knob). So when I say above I wouldn't use this firm in the future, it is only because of price and specific product. We felt the pricing was a stab in the dark at a huge margin job. In all other areas we were impressed with them.

The first attempt resulted in a large bulge in the floor of the tub, and the crack appeared to be reopening. The attempt to fix that completely destroyed the bottom of the tub and it still leaks, possibly more than ever.

Called and got squeezed in the very same day for the work, which was done very professionally. Tech seemed to know what he was doing and the product looked very good. Time will tell if quality will prevail, but I am very satisfied.

He was awesome! They are expensive, but it seemed to be comparable in the line of work. He was very prompt and polite. He even took his shoes off when he came in the house. He was the friendliest guy I've ever met, and he did an amazing job! They look like brand new tubs.
