It goes without saying that the bathroom is the single most
important room in your house.
After all, if your bedroom is messed up, you can sleep on the
sofa. If your kitchen is messed up, you can get take out food...
But if your bathroom is messed up - if the tub leaks, toilet
guzzles water, lighting is poor, shower on the blink, if it's too
hot, too cold, the sink wobbles, medicine cabinet too small, etc.,
etc., etc., then life is a disaster.
In other words, it's simply not possible to live comfortably in a
house with an inferior or malfunctioning bathroom. So what's the solution?
There's basically two schools of thought:
- Keep making piece-meal, spit & bubble gum solutions and hope
things don't fall apart at exactly the wrong time (which of course
they will - just ask
- Take the time to finally get serious and call in expert help
to do things right.
If you're thinking about option #2 "expert help", you've come to
the right place as there's absolutely no bathroom problem you can
possibly have that we can't fix, on time and on budget.
As bathroom updates go, here's some of the things we can do for
- Complete tear-down & remodel. This is the best, most
comprehensive way to get the exact bathroom you want. With this
plan, we completely gut the entire contents of your bathroom -
right down the the framing studs. Once we've done this, we look
for and repair any wet wood damage or insect damage (carpenter
ants and termites are attracted to damp, warm wood). We repair and
reinforce all the framing and sub-flooring as needed. While the
walls are open, we repair and replace any plumbing and/or wiring
which needs updating. Then, after the prep work is done, we
systematically install, step by step, all the elements of your
bathroom - exactly as you want. And, we're sure it's the way you
want it because prior to starting, we sit down with you and
carefully explain what will & won't fit correctly in the space you
have available. Prior to starting, we draw up plans based on the
space available, your budget constraints and the end result you
seek. As you might imagine, a complete tear-down will disable your
bathroom until the basics of the job are complete, so an
alternative bathroom must be available to you - at least for a
short time period. If this is a problem, we can schedule our work
while you are away for a few days - or on vacation. One important
thing to remember is that sometimes, only part of a bathroom is in
bad enough shape to need a tear-down. This means that your toilet
might still be available during the job, but your shower might not
(or vice versa). Please call us about this if you have questions.
- Shower / Tub, Repair / Replacement. For many people,
the most "bang for the buck" in a bathroom remodel is to
repair/replace the shower/tub. In many older homes, there are bath
fixtures which are so arcane as to be virtually useless - water
drips, not enough water flow, too hot, too cold, uses too much
water, etc. Also, many showers have loose tiles, bad grout or
other problems such as being an unsafe design for older people. If
you've worked hard all your life and have saved up some money,
there's no sense putting up with a risky shower or breaking your
hip slipping in the tub. With any remodel we do, we can factor
into the plan
ADA compliant grab bars and
safety features which make your bathing area easier and safer to
use. Suffice it to say, no matter what your bath or shower is like
now, we can fix it. We are experts in fiberglass shower systems
and we are experts in shower & tub tile repair (typically known as
- Floor repair / replacement. In many homes, the flooring
in the bathroom takes the worst beating of any floor in the house.
The water and humidity can really do a job on the sub-floor, the
floor itself and the floor covering. If you're suspicious about
the condition of your bathroom floor - don't delay - call us 1st
chance you get. It might be ugly under there, but the sooner we
come take a look, the sooner we can get things fixed up for you.
- Toilet replacement. As they say in the children's
everybody needs a working toilet.
But what to do if yours doesn't work right? Maybe it wobbles when
you sit down? Or you see a hairline crack and expect it to bust
open any day? Or maybe, no matter how many times you call the
plumber, it just doesn't flush right, it's too noisy, it's too
tall, too short, wrong color, wrong style. Or worst of all, maybe
it's one of those older toilets which use about 1,000 gallons of
water with very flush. But, on the other hand, you might be
worrying if you get get a new water saver unit, that it'll be too
weak to handle what the kids throw at it. With all that in mind,
it might seem funny that we should call ourselves toilet
replacement experts, but that's exactly what we are. If your
toilet stinks (literally or figuratively) we can replace it right
away with a new one which you'll like better. It's that easy -
just call us.
- Vanity / Sink / Countertop Replacement. Sometimes, the
only thing a bathroom needs is a new vanity or sink and a fresh
coat of paint. If your budget is limited, or if you just want to
make some minor bathroom updates, we still want to hear from you.
