ReBath Ripoff (And I Just Got An Estimate)
Rebath was at the home and garden show here in Birmingham, so my wife went ahead and made an appointment to get an estimate.We wanted to convert an existing shower into a tub (since we don't have a tub in our home).
Rebath showed up, they were two young gentlemen. So, now I know I'm in trouble, two people who probably don't even own homes are now going to give me an estimate. The go through their whole slideshow and presentation. Then they proceed to start calling people who live down the street from us, to tell us how great a job they do!
Now, i didn't know the people they were calling, I can about guess that they were "paid spokespersons". Then they give me the estimate dollar amount, hold on to your hats.... $7,255!!! Which is just $604/month on their interest free payment plan!
That's almost as much as my *** mortgage! Please keep in mind, this wasn't a total bathroom redo, this was a tub install! Literally move a wall 6" to the right, install a tub, install the walls, install a new spigot/showerhead! I started laughing, which they didn't like.
Then I started asking them technical questions about their material, i.e. the wall components, the bathtub, the faucet and the adhesive they attach the panels to the wall with. They looked at me like I had slapped them in the face! They then proceeded to tell me how i should just go ahead and use someone else, and that they'd install their product with other company's installation methods!
They were at my house for 2.5 hours, they never budged on price.
What a waste of time...I'll follow up if I get any further info from these jokers...
