"I called several times to schedule work … left multiple messages with a live individual, and my calls were never returned.

"It was a very positive experience. It was very easy to set up appointments. I had to reschedule once and the representative worked with me to find a date. I was" provided information regarding the process and what to expect. I also received information about preparation. On the day of service, I received a call ahead of time to let me know they were on their way. Upon arrival, the worker once again explained the process. He set up an air handling system to send the dust from the sanding to the outside. This was very helpful. There was a bad smell during the process but it went away quickly. The worker was very professional After finishing, I received information about care of the tub to maintain the surface. Later I received an email with a 5-year warranty and reminder about how to clean and what to use. I was very pleased with the final product. I now have a shiny white tub.

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.

They did an excellent job. The tub was worn, rusted & dirty. The tile walls were tarnished & had newspaper print stuck on tiles. The tub & walls look brand new. The tub has a rough no slip surface & the tile walls look like new tile. The surrounding areas around tub & tile areas were grouted.

was the technician. He arrived punctually and was very pleasant. The contact people I talked with very also very pleasant and helpful. The tub looks beautiful. I am very pleased with the results. I had an ugly green tub and now I have a great white one. It looks like a new tub.



I received detailed directions for the care and maintenance of the tub. I will recommend this company to my friends.
I would recommend that if you have a drippy faucet that you take care of that problem before the

Prepped surfaces carefully, mixed colors to match existing surfaces, made a strong effort to contain fumes to the work area, took his time, and left the bathrooms clean and neat.
The only remaining question is how long refinished surfaces will last; time will tell.

gave us an estimate, helped us select the right color to refinish our bathtub, arrived on time and did a fabulous job. He pulled out all of the old caulk, created a slip free floor on the tub and re caulked. Just perfect and no additional charge. We would highly recommend him. A++

We used
Clifton Park Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
about three years ago to resurface two bathrooms in a rental unit. We have been very pleased with their work and the way the surface has held up. So when we decided to re-do bathrooms at our house we decided to use them to resurface in two of our three bathrooms. Their work is excellent, and both bathrooms look like new. People who use this process need to remember to clean only with non-abrasive cleaners and nothing caustic. Both in our house and in the rental unit we did a mix of solid color surface (white or beige) and a stone look for some countertops. Turned out very well. The
Clifton Park Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
representatives were professional, arrived when scheduled, and completed the job in the time frame scheduled. We would use them again. We have seen other examples of re-surfacing that didn't turn out as well and did not hold up under use.

The owner very prompt and professional. Responded quickly to my inquiry, described the work involved and, once we agreed on a day and time, he was here and ready to work. He said it would take about 4 hours and it did. Once completed, since I was unable to come by right away, he sent me before and after photos by cell phone, looked great. He provided all warranties and documents by email right after our phone conversation. All work was done well and as described, he re-caulked all areas around the base and tube enclosure professionally; I couldn't be more satisfied with the work, responsiveness and price. It is clear the owner takes pride in his craft.
