I had them come out and give me an estimate prior to redoing my bathroom…Their estimate was around $3500! I was able to pay an individual small contractor to put in a $1000 whirlpool tub and tile the walls for way less. Yes Rebath would have been faster but the quality and what I got overall was well worth waiting the extra time.

I’ve never paid them to do it, but the apartment I rent has had this done to it (though I don’t know what company they used).  The quality really isn’t that great.  It was done to this apartment about 3 years ago, and the wall covering is already pulling away from the wall and the fitting around wash cloth bar cracked (before I moved in).  I can see doing it if you have a some really hideous tile that needs to be covered immediately or something, but if you are looking for a long term upgrade I would wait and save up for something better.

My dad is a plumbing/heating/cooling contractor, and he says that every time he gets called to a service call where one of the tub covers has been installed he finds mold behind it (between the cover and the original tub). That totally grosses me out!

@Ms Mini: I would be shocked if mine wasn’t full of mold and mildew back there, what with the crack and gap letting in all that moisture, though thinking about it makes me glad I’m moving this month!
