I wanted to cover up my '60s tile on my tub surround and wainscoting only. Very small bathroom. I looked at the Rebath site & found no inkling of a price range anywhere, so I set up an appointment for a free estimate.
This huge loud man came into the house and gave an 1 1/2 hour presentation and then told me it would be $6400 and that that was cheap. They don't even use real tile, and they glue it up over your old stuff! What a rip off!
When I told him that I would have to think about it, that it was a lot of money and a big decision, he got really pissy and threw all of his stuff in his bag, showed himself to the door, and didn't even turn around to tell us goodbye or thanks or anything.
I spoke with a contractor today who said he could send his whole crew in for two weeks and tile my bathroom the real way and do my entire kitchen for that much! I'm sure he was exaggerating a bit, but he was floored at the cost.
I felt like the entire deal was a waste of time. If the salespeople are going to be so rude about not closing the deal that day, they should talk to their company about maybe putting at least an average price range on the Web site.
Monetary Loss: $6400.
