Question DetailsAsked on 4/1/2017

I have a basement 36 x 36 shower stall that I would like rep[laced along with a sink and medicine cabinet and light

It is a basement shower and bathroom. What should something like this cost. I got a quote for $5,100. I am having trouble getting a second quote. I had someone come out and promised a quote in 2 days and then will not return calls.

Remodeling - Kitchen and Bath is your Search the List category for contractors for this. I would say, especially with concrete slab (unless new shower base can be bought to exactly fit location of drain) that sounds lean unless these are all simple replacements - same size holes, same piping locations, etc.

In my experience, except for with really cheap economy materials, around $5000 is the starting point for a new shower - without the sink, cabinet, and light, so I would not be surprised to see the other bids in the $5000-10,000 range - possibly higher if going with high-end fancy tile or frameless glass door or such.

On the callback - realizing the squeeky wheel gets the grease, but I recommend giving a contractor a week to get a bid to you, because many do that type of work on the weekend - so once weekly. Several weeks comnmonly if significant subcontractor work will be needed so the subs can get their bids to the GC to consolidate to give to you - because you are talking plumbing, electrical, maybe tile or specialty shower installer, maybe glass installer, maybe flooring depending on the sizing of the shower base if it does not cover all the area the old one did. Possibly even carpentry to modify the shower opening size if needed.
