Fixture Type ⇔ SHOWER FLOORS
There are times when the walls of your shower still look good, but the floor you stand on looks really bad. That's no problem, because we can refinish just the shower floor without having to refinish the shower walls. When sending pictures of your shower floor, please include the measurements, which usually range from 3x3 to 3x5.
PRICING: The cost for refinishing a fiberglass, cultured marble, or acrylic shower floor, based on size is:
3x3 = $350; 3x4 = $425; 3x5 = $500
If you are planning on replacing your shower doors, the time for refinishing is between the time the doors are removed while waiting for the new doors to arrive. Allow a few days after refinishing before scheduling the new door installation.
Please note we do not refinish tiled shower floors. The reason is because it's the nature of a shower pan to hold moisture, and that moisture can work its way up through the grout lines and eventually cause the surface to bubble and peel.
Pricing is based on a white or off-white finish, but if you want another color, you can choose from our solid color finishes, as we can special order ($75) our refinishing process in any of these colors. You'll notice there are no dark colors offered because we do not refinish in dark colors. That's because even in the semi-sterile environment we try to create, there are still minute dust particles that float through the air that can be seen on a dark surface.
If you don't need a special order color and are just trying to match the color to an existing toilet or countertop that is some variation of white or off-white, Jim has a great eye for color, and can tint the pure white color he starts off with to get close to the color you're trying to match.
Repair Work Prior to Refinishing
Discoloration on a shower floor doesn't usually indicate damage (like it does in a porcelain bathtub). However, a crack in a shower floor constitutes damage, and depending on the severity, repairs can range between $25-$250.
If the crack is small and not causing a leak, the repair is fairly simple, and will usually cost between $25-$75. However, if the crack is large or water is leaking through it, the repair process is much more involved, costing up to $250. That's because cracks like this are usually indicative of and caused by an underlying problem. Either the floor was not supported properly when the pan was installed, or perhaps the house has shifted.
In any case, the only way to try to support it from underneath is to drill one or more small holes in the surface and use a Froth Pak (a 2-piece insulation and sealant product) to try and fill up the cavity beneath the floor. We of course, cannot guarantee it won't crack out again at some point in the future, but we've only seen a handful of failures over the past 37+ years, so it's a good alternative to try to avoid replacement.
Part of our preparation before refinishing shower floors includes cleaning and trimming back the caulk line all around the pan, and protecting the immediate surrounding area with paper. The day after (24 hours) refinishing, you can choose for us to return to remove the protective paper and re-caulk around the pan, or you may choose to do these final steps yourself. For scheduling purposes, we will need to know at the time you are scheduling the work whether or not you are going to require the Turnkey Service.
PRICING: The Turnkey Service is $95.
