Kansas City Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Reviews
The project was scheduled to be started after the first of the year, however, the schedule changed and we were asked if it would be okay for them to start the job in mid-December. Although we weren't too crazy about the idea we agreed to the change. I was contacted the night before the project was to start and told the lead carpenter that was going to do my job had twisted his knee that day and had to go to the hospital and was asked if it would be okay if the start was delayed until after the first of the year. This was not a problem. Since MKB had scheduled the project the suppliers had begun delivering the materials for job. As my son and I were completing carrying the materials to an unused room next to the master bath I received a call from MKB asking that I put one item in the garage and that they would be out the next day to move the other items inside. MKB also picked up and stored the tile that had been ordered and was scheduled to be delivered to our address.
The second week of January I was called by the project manager and asked if he could come by the next day with the lead carpenter to get our project started. When we met we covered where the dumpster was to be placed, where the main water shut off was located, and where the service panel was located. We then went to the bathroom and reviewed what we wanted done and began working that day. The dumpster was delivered later that morning and to my surprise, it was placed on wood, not directly on the drive way.
This bathroom was on the second floor so each day they covered the stairs with tarps, as well as the area leading to the work area. This was the first thing that they did each day and picking up the tarps was the last thing they did each day. They sealed the bathroom off with plastic to contain as much dust as possible. This included covering the adjoining closet door and the the vanity in the master bath. Spoiler alert, it helped keep the dust down in the surrounding rooms but it by no means kept them dust free. Each day the lead carpenter would let us know what he would be working on that day and ask us if we had any questions or concern. He kept us informed of his schedule. He told us that he was going to complete another job one day so he would not be working the next day. We used the opportunity to strip the old wallpaper while he was gone. In the process I stepped on the capped water line for the stool and broke the pipe. After shutting off the water I called the project manager and he contacted the lead carpenter and had him come out and cap the line. The next day the lead carpenter came back and resumed working on the tiling. There were a couple of instances where not enough tile had been ordered and an instance where trim pieces had been missed. This was handled by MKB without a problem. Once the tile in the shower was completed the lead carpenter began tiling the floor. MKB contacted the glass company to measure for the walls of the shower, while continuing to complete work on the floor. With the completion of the tile, MKB installed new quarter round and re-installed the toilet. The glass company came out and installed the shower walls to complete the project.In the week after the project was completed we had found two problems, one with the toilet and what appeared to be a crack in one of the panes of glass in the shower. I contacted MKB and they responded the same day. The glass company came out and looked at the glass and the crack turned out to be extra silicon sealant. The glass company removed the sealant with a razor blade and the crack disappeared. We were seeing water behind the toilet. Having set dry for close to a month I assumed the seals had dried out and cracked. I first replaced the bolts that hold the tank to the base and this resolved the issue of the water behind the stool. However, the next day I found water in front of the stool. I could not find any evidence of where the water was coming from. I worked on this problem for several days, ultimately replacing the fill valve, flapper, the gasket for the vent pipe, and the tank gasket. I was concerned with the possibility that the wax seal was not right. The lead carpenter called me that night and we talked about the problem for 30 minutes. The confusing problem was that the water was showing up at the front of the stool, not under the tank where you would expect it. He explained that if the wax seal was bad it would leak when you flush, not when it is sitting unused. I was about ready to replace the entire toilet and decided one last time to check the tank. With the tank gasket on there appeared to be no leak, however, once I removed the tank gasket and set the tank in the sink and partially filled the tank I found a small leak around the vent pipe gasket. After tightening the gasket down, the leak disappeared and the problem was resolved. I was not able to determine how the water was making it to the front of the stool.
He took an old outdated bathroom with
The bathtub was removed and replaced with a tiled shower and sliding glass door. He installed a vanity with a glass sink top, which I had purchased for the remodel. I wanted a shallow cabinet built into one of the walls. He got it! I didn't pick the easiest tile to work with, but
