At a few properties I manage, we have just done about 5 complete shower pan replacements with full tile in the last few months. Including, hot mop, new drain, new valve, complete re-tile, and new shower door, it has been under $4,000. With just partial tile work the bottom and up about a foot on the sides, it was about $2,800. This work is being performed by a licensed contractor.

Yes... way too much. Hot Mop = $300, Tile work = $750, plus contractor markup of $500? Total should be around $1500 completed.

Always used an experience an licensed contractor. Shower pans can be very tricky and if they leak you won't discover it until the damage is done and insurance companies don't cover long term issues. So it would all be on you.

Doesn't sound too unreasonable but it never hurts to get more (at least 3) estimates and opinions.

Frankly, including flooring repair, shower pan, tile, it is not too bad. But get another quote and get references. A poorly done shower pan can cost you many more dollars later

Getting another quote will help you know better what the average price for a job like that in your area might be. You don't want to over pay, but don't be fooled by a really good price. A low price can mean quality work or something that will cost you more money down the road. Having a working shower is something that people have come to expect.

Yes that sounds too high.

I recently had a bathroom redone with travertine tile floors, 3 shower walls in travertine w/ new fixtures, we didn't replace the shower pan though & all of that was under $2k. I'm not sure what 'hot mop' is since I'm not a contractor.

I have a handyperson referral for you, just shoot me an email directly or give me a call, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine.
