    Is it worth the money to get a shower floor resurfaced (coated)?

    How long would a coating on a shower pan (the part you stand on) last? Do those resurfacing coats really work?  Thanks for any tips you can offer!

    If you go with a fly-by -night outfit then NO!

    You need to go with a a contractor that has fans to expel the fumes.  The fumes are very bad and so don't leave pets - in fact the entire place should be emptied of living things. The person who does this has a scott air pack (or should!)

    If not using scott air pack and fans then that is a fly-by night person who already has brain damage from not protecting themselves.  Using just a mask  that is rated for the chemical is not enough. Contractors have died because the fumes displace oxygen at the bottom of the tub where they are bent over and will die.  No joke.

    Hi Marcy,
    I think ptosis is correct. We got this done a couple years ago and I think . . . no I'm sure, it was a "fly-by-night" guy. He didn't have a suit like the one in the picture and I don't recall him using a fan. It was a sloppy job for $500 bucks. It didn't last for the most part, didn't stay smooth so now it's hard to clean. We should have gotten it done professionally or just have gotten a new tub. Good luck, make the investment.
