Overall this is a great company with really nice people.
Yoel Piotraut, a managing partner, brought the project in and was very professional and trustworthy.
is the person who ultimately managed the project. He is incredibly knowledgeable on every aspect of renovation. No matter what went wrong (and there is always something that goes wrong with renovation!), he doesn't blink - he just takes on the responsibility to address the issues and fix them. He never once complained no matter what it was or what time of day or night.
I started out wanting to only renovate one bathroom but ended up renovating almost the entire apartment - including 2 bathrooms, kitchen backsplash, floors, doors and radiators. Yoel was reasonable on the pricing - a few things were very much over-priced but he was willing to work me on others so that it all worked out fair in the end.
The quality of the plumbing and tiling was outstanding. Most of the crew were meticulous as they worked - things always get broken or go missing in renovation so you have to expect it or you'll go crazy! They all took great pride in their work. That's actually very important because it means they care and want to do a great job for you.
was the sub-contractor and I hope he handles every renovation for the rest of my life! He's that good!
There was a lot of micro-managing required on my part in the beginning but once a rhythm was set, it all worked out. We are still waiting to finish up a few last pieces and I hope that doesn't take too long…

I feel bad giving a "C" to this company, as I did not have any renovation work done, I had no major problems with the estimate and the gentleman with whom I dealt was very genial. However, it is a joke to consider the quality of the "plans" I received to be anywhere near $50, much less $450.
The plans were rudimentary at best. It appears they were constructed in Microsoft Paint, or some similar basic program, certainly not a CAD or proper design program. None of the dimensions were to scale. There was no notation or acknowledgement of any of the issues we may have had to deal with in the renovation, such as electrical lines or plumbing lines. With no disrespect intended to C&B, the sketches I prepared myself using some online program were of higher quality (in my opinion).
Some background: I live in a co-op in NYC, and the process to attain approval for any major renovation (which my renovation qualified as) was quite cumbersome. In addition to completing a roughly 50 page renovation agreement, I was required to submit detailed plans for the proposed work. As a result, the offer presented by Angie's List - $50 for a $450 value - seemed too good to pass up.
After having C&B come to see the bathroom, I had 5 other contractors come in to provide an estimate, and several provided design plans of much higher quality for free.
Ultimately, the
's share of my disappointment with the deal I purchased
with Angie's List, not C&B. If there were a way to give Angie's List an "F", and not give any grade to C&B, I would do that in a heartbeat.
Angie's List should not have marketed this offer if it had not done any diligence to test the quality of the product it was endorsing. Note the language of the offer - "Kitchen Master encourages you to buy a coupon for each area you want to remodel... Please don't contact the service provider to purchase this Big Deal; you can only purchase Big Deals through Angie's List" - to my ears, this sounds like an endorsement. Secondly, my friendly advice to C&B would be: do not seek to sell a service that your competitors are giving away for free, especially if you are not providing something of superior quality and value than your competitors.
p.s.: C&B's estimate was fine, however it was clear that the scope of the project was, at that time, probably beyond the capabilities of his firm. I don't have a great way of crystallizing this conclusion - the best I can describe it is that the other contractors asked more insightful follow-up questions to my proposed scope of work. In the end, the actual labor cost of the project was 3.2x the estimate provided by C&B (by comparison, the final actual labor cost was 21% higher than the estimate I received from the contractor I went with, and most of the difference was due to an impromptu decision to move and replace the electrical panel box that was previously in the bathroom).

The quality of the work was not up to standards. The floor that was installed has large gaps between the wood and there is a clicking noise in certain areas where you walk. The job was supposed to take 4 weeks but it was delayed and there were multiple days that nobody was working in the apartment despite the supplies being there on time. During the project we heard all of the excuses that the contractor was working on 5 or more jobs and that they would get to finishing it. The contractor installed bathroom tiles from his supplier and did not order enough of the finishing tile. When he went back to order additional ones it took over 3 weeks and they were unable to get the same tile. The work they do is shortcut in nature they don't think it through. When replacing the tiles, they did not use the appropriate cement instead they used standard glue. At the end of the job they came back to ask for additional money for areas which they had trouble that they believe was not in the contract. I would be careful before contracting with them. The contractor is a nice person which is why we contracted with him in the first place. He came recommended but buyer beware.

I also hold Angie's List responsible for not doing more to require basic certification of the service providers. And Angie's List could do more to warn people about the risks that we take in using their service.

Well, how did it go? I never heard from
New York Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
. When I called him back quite some time later, he acted as if he he did not remember coming to my apartment. He then said that does not really do coops. I felt that
New York Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
did not really want to do a small job and probably got busy and so he brushed off my job.
I don't know why these people hold themselves out to be exceptional but then act no different from the average dead beet contractor and think they can just explain things away with a response. He is not the first from Angie's list to not return calls, what kind of service is that.

Initially things went well. They provided a competitive verbal estmate and sent an installer out to review the project, which they estimated at 2-3 hours. That's when things started going south. I asked them to provide a Certificate of Insurance before starting work, and this initiated a series of unexplained delays. Proposed installation dates would loom with no word from them. I had to track them down repeatedly (they never answer their phone), and ended up with a series of unexplained deferrals. Meanwhile, none of the repeatedly requested paperwork (COI, written estimate) was forthcoming. Finally, I had what I thought was a confirmed installation date and time, only no one ever showed up. Meanwhile, I learned from my management company that
New York Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
didn't carry the standard amounts of liability demanded by just about any coop or condo in Manhattan. They strung me along, wasted weeks of my time, and were completely unforthcoming and unprofessional. DO NOT hire these people!

It is impossible to evaluate Champion's work.
New York Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
came to first scheduled visit and was very impressive. We were leaning towards using him for a full gut kitchen renovation. However, he was very poor at returning emails and calls. To be more precise, on several occasions he would respond to an email with "I will call you after the weekend," but we never heard back. Despite repeated requests in person, phone, and email, we never received a reference list and could not arrange a visit to view work.
We were also supposed to get a kitchen plan, but we already had a pretty detailed one drawn out, and
New York Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
did not provide anything further. In fact, we got nothing for the money we spent.
I held back on this review for a long time, to see if he showed any initiative to follow through, but he did not. We are very disappointed.
