Fixture Type ⇔ SHOWER FLOORS
If the walls of your shower look good, but the floor you stand on looks really bad, we can refinish just the shower floor without having to refinish the shower walls (as long as the floor and the walls are separated by a caulk line, indicating that the shower and floor are not a one-piece unit). 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
Pricing is based on a white or off-white finish, but if you want another color, choose from our solid color finishes, as we can special order ($75) our refinishing process in any of these colors. We do not refinish in dark colors 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 color and are just trying to match the color of 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.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are planning on replacing your shower doors, the time for refinishing is after the doors are removed and before the new doors are installed, so please allow this time when scheduling.
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: We do not refinish shower floors that are tiled. 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 refinished surface to bubble and peel. Your workaround is to replace the floor.
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 $75-$250, or even more in the worst cases.
If the crack is small and not causing a leak, the repair will be fairly simple, and will usually cost between $75-$125. However, if the crack is large or water is leaking through it, the repair process is much more involved. 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 fill up as much of the cavity beneath the damage as possible. We of course, cannot guarantee the failed area won't crack out again at some point in the future, because the underlying cause has not been addressed. Having said that, we've only seen a handful of failures over the past 4 decades, so it's a good alternative to try to avoid replacement.
More About REPAIRS
Please note that our warranty is specifically related to the two things under our control: workmanship and product defects. We do not guarantee that rust, cracks, or holes won't reappear later in a shower floor if the underlying source of the damage (possibly a house shift, improper initial installation, water leak, or previous damage to the same area) has not been corrected.
The TURNKEY Service Option
Part of the preparation before refinishing a shower floor includes (1) removing the caulk between the floor, walls, and door, and (2) protecting the surrounding area from overspray with paper and statically-charged plastic.
The day after refinishing, you have the option of removing this plastic/paper and re-caulking where necessary, or we can come back to do it for a return trip charge of $125. Although most homeowners can do these things, most still prefer that we do it so it is a turnkey project for them. It's totally up to you, but for scheduling purposes, we need to know if you will want it, as it does require another day in our schedule.
Our service areas extend to most of the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex including Arlington, Bedford, Carrollton, Colleyville, Coppell, Dallas, Euless, Farmers Branch, Flower Mound, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, Grapevine, Haltom City, Hurst, Irving, Keller, Lewisville, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, Roanoke, Southlake, Trophy Club, Watauga, and Westlake.
