Dear Sir or Madam in response to your survey request:
I feel your product is extremely over priced for what it is. The sales person was a bit pushy and unable or unwilling to negotiate any price reduction. I believe we were misled. This product is not worth the $5,500 plus finance charges we will have to pay. If I had to do over again I would not have gone with your product.
The installer placed the shower rod too far into the enclosure. During my first shower I had no elbow room and was unable to turn around in the tub without hitting the shower curtain, this was never a problem before the installation of your product. When I called to try to remedy the problem two days after initial installation, I was NOT given any date nor time when the installer would be back to try to resolve my problem. I was only told that “they would get to it when they were back in my area again, maybe next week”. I also was told that the shower rod is screwed into the walls of the shower and that because of this they would be unable to repair the holes left behind, but only cover them. I think that for the $5,500 I spent on this system that I should get prompt service with a date and time when they would be back and that they should fix this problem as soon as possible. The installer who called me back, Joe Wade agreed with me that the shower rod should not be screwed into the walls because of the high price of the system and that an ordinary shower rod would do the job of holding up the shower curtain without making any more unneeded holes. It became apparent to me that this was simply how he was told and trained to install these systems. So after spending $5,500 I will to go out to my local home improvement store this weekend and spend more money on a new shower curtain rod that will not need to be screwed into the walls of my brand new, highly expense tub and walls. I would also like to add the fact that the clear plastic shower curtain rings that were given to us by the installer are very cheap and something you can get at any dollar store.
For the amount of money I spent on your product I ‘m very disillusioned with the experience I have had thus far, and cannot in my good conscious ever recommend your product or services to anyone ever. I was told that Bath Fitter was the Mercedes Benz of the bath renovation world by the salesman. I vehemently disagree. I would recommend that in future installation the owner of the home be allowed to make a choice between the screwed in shower rod and an ordinary shower rod that will not add holes to the walls of the shower enclosure. I also would like to recommend that Bath Fitter give the customer some decent looking metal shower curtain rings to match the chrome faucets or which ever color faucet that they chosen. I think these small, inexpensive changes would increase customer’s satisfaction greatly with your product in the future. If you have any questions or need me to clarify anything I have written please do not hesitate to contact me.
From a sincerely dissatisfied customer,
The TRUTH about bath fitter. I do bathrooms on a regular basis. Sometimes 2 a week. I can replace your tub and walls with a new REAL tub or shower with new drains, valve assembly w/trim, install new tile backer board,& tile the wall area in about 2-3 days. Materials & labor for about $4000.00. A real bath tub & tile replacement should last 20 yrs or longer..like your OLD bathroom did. The problem with bath fitters..is they do scratch easy, the tub liners fail, you sometimes get what they call a SQUISHER, where the water seeped between your old tub and there new liner, they stress crack around the drain area, & the special mildew resistant caulk does not prevent mildew. The only way to stop mildew from starting in the first place is keep your bathroom dry. Simple as that. If you see the mirrow all steamed up when your done showering, you need better ventilation. If you have poor ventilation, an hot water vapor is present, your always gonna have a mildew problem. The caulk will start to peel off in the corners where you clean regularly. Alot of people have experiened loose walls because they apply there products right over your old walls, regardless of what is there with double sided sticky tape and adhesive. Thats no way to get a lasting job. Acrylic products look great when there done, but will never outlast or be as durable as the bath you originally had. Bath fitters is a territorial franchise chain. There are a few different bath fitters (products) on the market. A well dressed salesman will show up, sell you a line of goods, makes it all sound dreamy.. gonna do it all in a day..and you wind up with a job that cost them about $600.00 in materials, they pay a subcontractor to come in and install it for about another $6 – 800.00 dollars, and the rest is profit. If you have any problems, your at Gods mercey to get it fixed. Then you hear about all the reasons why you have a problem, and how it’s not there problem.. They were there to sell you a product that they have exclusive rights to…period. Hope this post helps in your decision for a quickie bathroom job! I am Alan Dinsmoor from Ct, a contractor since 1982..if you search my name on any search engine, you’ll find me and my company. Ct residents only.
We had Bathfitters redo our bath 2 years ago with the 1 peice fitted wall/tub unit. The guys that did our work/installation did a great job. They were very neat and cleaned up after themselves and the unit is holding up beautiful. I use the cleaner that they recommend and have not had any issues. Hats off to Bathfitter of Asheville, NC
