Description Of Work:
Complete remodel of master bathroom, including reconfiguration of fixtures and lighting requiring re-plumbing and wiring. Replacement of kitchen counter tops with granite and new appliances - stove, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher.
It was a very good experience from start to finish. Pete came to the house, suggested a new configuration for the bathroom that incorporated all I wanted and improved the flow of the room, then met with me and helped me pick out tiles, cabinets and fixtures. He gave me an estimate that included absolutely everything for all the remodel materials and work (excepting granite countertops and kitchen appliances, which I had to buy separately). There were no subsequent additional hidden costs or "surprises." It turned out that the old baseboards in the bathroom which we had planned to reuse did not fit the new configuration so I had to buy new baseboards, but this was the only minor deviation from the estimate. The project took a bit longer than first estimated, because of a concrete (not concrete board) subfloor in the bathroom, which took longer to remove, and because there was such extensive tile installation in the bathroom. Another delay was having to order and stain new baseboards, but the work was substantially completed and the bathroom was completely functional so there was no inconvenience. Eric and Ken, the ones who did the work, impressed me with their professionalism, craftsmanship, and pleasant personalities. They cleaned everything up after finishing each day, and having the work done was really only a minor inconvenience. I had heard countless horror stories about how inconvenient and obtrusive and dirty remodeling projects can be, even if everything goes well, so I was prepared for the worst and was pleasantly surprised that it went as easily as it did.
