"Before we checked Angie's List we had another company come in to re-glaze our bathtub. They did such a poor job and wouldn't come back to fix it until" they got paid that we didn't want them in our house any more. That's when we called
and they came over and not only fixed the other company's mess but did a great job to restore the bathtub. They were very professional and we would definitely use them again.

"A person answered the phone immediately when I called. They answered all my questions immediately and were able to schedule an appointment the next Saturday. Although" I had to cancel that appointment, they were able to reschedule for the following Monday. The refinisher arrived an hour late, and I called the office to make sure he was coming. My calls were handled courteously and I was updated as to his arrival time. Since he finished the job quickly, the late start was not a problem. The bathroom was completely masked to prevent overspray. The finished bathtub looked shining like new. As it was drying, it looked like there were areas that were darker than the rest, and I called the company to put another coat of enamel on those spots. My call was handled courteously, and they sent out someone to inspect the job the next morning. It turned out that the darker spots were simply reflections from the green masking paper. When the paper was removed, the darker areas looked as white as the rest of the tub. Even though my complaint had been a mistake, I was treated respectfully. There was no extra charge for parking fees or anything like that. I scheduled them to
the bathtub in my second bathroom.

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.

If you can buy a new bathtub for about the same cost as getting one refinished, why not just buy a new one?

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.

My contractor forgot (despite my repeated reminders) to hire someone to put graffiti protective film on the new glass windows and door for my storefront. New glass gets acid etched almost immediately in my neighborhood and I didn't want even one night to go by without it. The new front door was going in today and my contractor still hadn't found anyone, so I checked Angie's List and called this company. They were in the neighborhood and came by in an hour, and put film on the new door. I didn't realize it until they told me, but the film doesn't need to be replaced if its acid-etched. It just needs to be washed with warm water and a blue sponge (anything else will abrade it)

Although I didn't buy this deal via Angie's List (i am glad I didn't buy it), - I bought the deal from the same provider via GROUPON, for recaulking of a tub. After purchasing the deal, I promptly contacted the provider according to instructions, i left email message but never heard back. So I called and the guy told me they don't make appointments via phone, only via email, so i told him i did that and he said he will get back to me next week. A week came and gone, and i left them another email still never heard responses. So i contacted Groupon customer service letting them know and Groupon refunded me the money!! If this is their attitude and professionalism before they even have your business/money, can you imagine what would it be like if you do give them money to perform work and you need follow up?
stay away from this one. I am very unhappy, waste of my time. now i got another provider coming out.

Went very well. The coating looks almost like new and is drastically cheaper than replacing the tub/shower. An insert also wasn't do-able because they don't work well in acrylic tubs. A couple of small imperfections in his work that he came out and fixed at no charge. One small imperfection I didn't spot until a year later and I didn't call to have him fix. The coating works well as long as you clean it regularly and don't use abrasive cleaners. If you let it go it will stain and you'll be out of luck. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the product and

Overall, the service was excellent. Making the appointment was easy; we scheduled several weeks ahead. We had scheduled to have two bathrooms regrouted around the tubs (both with showers and tiling 2/3 up the wall surround). When

arrived to do the work he determined that it was not worth regrouting one of the bathrooms and recommended we only do one of them, which is the way we went. The service took a full day.

It went very well. The actual person that came to my house--was on time. Once he stepped foot in my house he was all about business. No talking just working. Sometimes people talk and not enough work is getting done. He was neat and it was very little to no mess at all. I have no problem in referring this company to anyone and I plan to use them in the future.
