A Re-Bath salesman came to our home and
used high-pressure and highly-manipulative techniques to try to get my husband and I to commit to their offer the night of the estimate. The presentation took 2.5 hours and clearly was not altered at all even though we were trying to hold/entertain a 2 year old who we had to keep up past her bedtime because the guy just kept going on and on. Most of this presentation was spent watching a powerpoint of information I already knew about the company from researching them on the internet. From the beginning the salesman seemed more interested in interrogating us over other options we were considering and giving me his opinion that other remodeling companies we had received bids for (and we didn't give him names of companies because that felt awkward) were not trustworthy or respectful because they were taking a couple days between taking the measurements and the final bids. He asked me "how does that make you feel that they didn't respect your time enough to give you a number?" I thought to myself "it doesn't bother me that a company understands that remodeling a historic 1947 home's bathroom requires a little more thought than taking measurements of surface materials and plugging it into a 10 cell pricing chart (like Re-Bath did) and it definitely isn't good business practice to make a major home improvement decision without investigating a few different options. The salesman wasted so much of the presentation trying to bad-mouth who he assumed was bidding on our remodel I finally just said that I'd prefer to focus on what Re-Bath had to offer. It was clear to me from the salesman's behavior he must have received some extra incentive for signing a person up the day of the presentation. He was clearly angry with me when I told him we would be taking a week to look at all of our options before making a decision. He actually said, "so you've just been wasting my time, then?"
Additionally, I can say that while these look like good quality immitations of stone/tile work it is not worth paying over double the cost of even higher-end tile/grout systems (Re-Bath bid us $8400 for JUST the shower). Re-bath materials have less resale value regardless of what a Re-Bath salesman thinks of these products and when most people end up staying in their home for 10 years or less... this isn't smart investing and in the end that is what you are doing every time you improve your home.
On a final note, while I am not LDS I found the following conversation that occurred at the very beginning of the meeting unprofessional and offensive. The salesman and his "trainee" were talking to us about our daughter and baby on the way. Making conversation I asked each of them about their kids and the trainee said he had five children. The head salesman then adds something like "yeah he USED to be LDS and you know how that goes" giving me eyebrows. Now I realize that this guy has noticed we have a wine rack in our living room and a coffee pot in our kitchen, made an assumption we are not LDS/mormon, and now is making a comment to me about a religious stereotype? Not appropriate and I wish I had ended the presentation right then since this was my first red flag of many -- seriously too many to list out here!
So far I love the look of my new bathroom. It was all stress free, with the exception of one part. I wish I had more time to inspect the shower after the installation. It felt a little rushed to sign off, but I was a bit stressed that day. I'm not sure if it was my own stress, or that they got in and out so quickly. After the fact everything was ok, and no problems surfaced. I am 100% satisfied with my bathroom. I look forward to getting the kids and guest bath done down the line.
I guess its been over a year now since Rebath did our bathroom remodeling project. I just started using City Search, and thought I should leave some feedback for other users. Gloria and I chose Rebath because of the prices, warranty, and their reputation. Sales guys were great and the installers were outstanding. The whole transformation was awesome. They explained everything and were very conscientious in all that they did.
Great Prices, Incredible Warranties. These guys are great! After getting several estimates for our bathroom we chose to go with Rebath for our bathroom remodel. One of the things that kicked us over the edge towards Rebath was the portable showroom they brought to the house. What sealed the deal were the great prices and amazing warranty that they offer. The workers that showed up were friendly and finished in a surprisingly quick time. Their work is a nice change in our main bathroom. We are really happy with our new bathroom, Thanks Rebath!
