Contractor communicated well all through the project with daily phone calls and text messages. Project started with a complete gut of the existing Art Deco bathroom complete with bright yellow tile. His framer reconstructed the rotted substructure including floor joists and girder under the shower. His electrician and plumber were very good and took approximately 2 weeks for this portion. Next came the reconstruction of the shower including an excellent framing and hot mopping job and now we have a fully functioning shower that functions well and looks great with the inclusion of frameless shower doors. The tile person was innovative in resolving various issues that came up. We did run into a few snafus with the use of existing plumbing fixtures so be prepared to use all new fixtures for plumbing including faucets, toilet, etc. Lastly, as with all construction, there are always minor issues in the details and

was always responsive in resolving any issue in a timely and professional manner. The remodel included the installation of a new clawfoot tub, double sink vanity and subway tiled shower.
All of the scheduled inspections were completed with flying colors!
Essentially, we took a very cramped, poorly functioning bathroom and renovated with timeless amenities to keep with the reformed colonial style of the house. We are very happy with the final product.

The re-design was wonderful. Some small changes made all the difference to my small kitchen, making the entry seem much more roomy. The cabinets and cabinet interiors that kitchen store designer recommended are wonderful. The contractor was not local to my home so it took a long time to complete the job. The contractor recommended to do the countertops and tile floor also helped to pick out the backsplash. It all looked wonderful when put together. The cost of service above was for the cabinets only. The countertops, tile, and backsplash were billed separately and the contractor billed separately to install and do some additional work that I requested (replaced fluorescent lights, some painting, etc). I am very pleased and would recommend

I contacted three contractors listed on Angie's List and got three responses, but Nick's from
Monrovia Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
made the most sense and he seemed genuinely interested in taking my concerns one by one and addressing them the best way we could, knowing my budget was tight. I also appreciated that he was very accessible by email both at the beginning and throughout the project. Now, I had done my homework prior to selecting a contractor, but working with Nick made me even surer that my ideas were going to be workable and satisfying.
Before we began, we noted that my water wasn't fully shutting off. Nick determined that it stemmed from a common problem we have in my condo complex regarding water pressure and the design of the shutoff valves to each unit. His first job was to replace that shutoff valve with a proper pressure regulator setup, and that was handled quickly and professionally by his master plumber father,

. This was one of only two change orders we had to do on the project.
The next issue was taking down some of the first-floor ceiling drywall and seeing what was going wrong upstairs. It turned out to be leakage from the cracked tub (and some pipe joints) that was flowing along the pipes and dripping onto the drywall ceiling below. None of the joists needed replacing, thankfully, but the bathroom sub-floor ended up needing to be replaced. This worked out, too, because the original toilet rough-in was only 10" and that severely limits options for toilets, so when the new floor was put in and plumbing was laid in for the new tub,

extended the rough-in distance enough to accommodate pretty much any toilet on the
Monrovia Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
. I was also happy to find out that the internal construction of my condo was better than I expected, as no new joists needed to be added to hold up the much heavier cast iron tub I wanted. It took Nick and two strong helpers to wrestle that tub up the stairs, but they did it expertly and carefully, with no damage to the walls, or to themselves!
Nick did a good job scheduling the initial demolition stage followed by the rough-in and plumbing work, and everything proceeded smoothly with regard to putting in new floor and wall covering. Nick used high quality materials throughout, and helped me select items I was unsure about. My designer daughter (http://www.ijentrify.com) also helped, especially with the color choices, and tile and flooring choices. Nick was somewhat unfamiliar with the Marmoleum flooring we specified, but his flooring sub-contractor (Apramian in Pasadena) knew all about it and installed it beautifully. This reflects Nick's willingness to accommodate his client's desires, even if they don't match his own, and to find out about new materials and techniques. Nick confided to me after the project was finished that he wasn't too sure if my daughter's color choices for the dark gray floor, light gray walls and back-splash, and the shower tile accent strip would work with the "espresso" color of the cabinetry, but seeing it all together, he said he liked it. As I'm color-blind, I've always deferred to daughter
Monrovia Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
's color judgment, and once again it's proven a wise decision.
When it came to tile, I wanted a pony wall at the end of the tub, which presented a challenge for the tiler, but they solved the problems it entailed beautifully. I also wanted an L-shaped shower curtain rod that would be permanently attached to the walls, and Nick had to work to find a good one with which we were both satisfied, but the one he found is terrific and exactly what I had in mind. This was the other change order, as the cost of the this rod was double what had been anticipated.
Because of the problems I'd had with excess moisture in the bathroom, I requested a good exhaust fan with a heater option, and the ultra-quiet Panasonic unit Nick chose to install works better than I could have hoped. Even after an extended hot shower, there is no condensation or mist to be seen in the room! Nick also installed a motion-detector switch that shuts off the lights, fan and heater 10 minutes after the bathroom is vacated, so that will give additional peace of mind regarding moisture in the bathroom.
I was without a shower for about a month. Nick had said that the project would run 4-6 weeks, and he was correct. Throughout the project, Nick and his team would leave the area neat and tidy each day when they left. There was only two delays when it came to materials, one of which was tile through Home Depot, and the other was the shipment of the shower rod. They weren't lengthy delays, and Nick made the best of it by bringing other elements of the project forward.
At the end, when we got together to go over everything in the completed project, Nick told me he wants to return to do a couple of paint touchups, and to make another pass on the seam created in the living room ceiling drywall (with popcorn texture) to see if he can blend it even better than he did when they covered over the section they removed at the beginning. I personally didn't see the things he saw, but Nick says he won't feel satisfied until he takes care of these things. He won't charge me for that visit, so who am I to argue with an artist? ;-)
Bottom line: Nick is a very conscientious contractor who operates his business "old school" - he cares about his clients, he wants to do the best job he can for you for a fair price, and he wants you to be happy with his work. Talking to his sub-contractors, they echoed this assessment of him. They said he deals with them with the highest standards as well. One of the reasons I chose Nick for my project was the number of reviews on Angie's List that came from people who used Nick for multiple projects. To me, that speaks volumes. He also told me once at the end of the day as he was leaving to go see a client he'd already done work for, that nothing made him happier than getting a call to do more work from a previous client. Again, "old school" values.
This was my first project with Nick and his team. But I can tell you, he'll be the first guy I call next time. He has my highest recommendation!

They came and did an estimate same M.O. and actually took a deposit which they NEVER REFUNDED when we tried to call and say we were not going through with the job. It was 1 or 2 thousand dollars. He said they would refund if we could not go through with the job and then he was unreachable. As in never returning my calls.

It was a pleasure to work with Rich
Monrovia Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
and his team. The overall quality of the work was excellent, and the job was finished on time and on budget. Rich is punctual, smart, and honest. He has a very strong ability to visualize how things will look and what will work best in a room. I completely trusted his judgement in choosing items and finishes (and I do not do that easily) and the finished product is lovely. He uses excellent workmen and keeps a close eye on the job. He is very easy to reach and responsive to questions and concerns. Mine was a relatively small job, but I would not hesitate to use Luxe for any size remodel. Rich does high quality work and is a businessman of impeccable integrity.

Overall,I love the new remodeling of our home. I am very pleased with this company and the services they provided. There were no glitches, no delays and really nothing to complain about. They were also very punctual, clean, and professional with their work habits. I would definitey rehire them for later projects.

A Regional Supervisor, Avishay B. Dov, came and spent an entire day with us. Every question was answered, pictures were shown, information about the company was given. From the day we agreed upon having the kitchen "demoed" there was very little time that there wasn't workmen in that space transforming it into a beautiful and useful kitchen. The kitchen was functional within 5 weeks. And not only functional but the floor, cabinets, counter tops and backsplash were done with care and excellent craftsmanship. We never experienced "down time" or had a single question that wasn't answered right away. If messages were left for Avishay to call us, he always got back to us within the day, if not sooner. The home office for

was very helpful and friendly. This remodeling event went smoothly, attention was paid to all of our questions and concerns, and the result is simply stunning. The kitchen was redesigned to give it much more natural light, more openness and better use.

Amazingly well! It took over a year but there was never any lag time on the part of the provider. The length of time was due to our changes and additions. The provider was there almost every day and never disappeared. He was always available and took a personal interest in our project. He took pride in making sure things were followed up on and done correctly. He was considerate of our neighbors and had trash picked up on a regular basis. Even though we had drawings and computer programs, the actual finished house was somewhat of a surprise to see how beautiful it turned out. The provider worked well with the city and had all the permits and inspections done in a timely manner. Even when we had unexpected challenges (like very little foundation under the back part of the house) or discovered something new (like how beautiful the view was on a side we weren't going to put in any windows in), the provider was flexible and delighted in problem solving. It was exciting each step of the way without any horror stories that you usually hear with this type of major project. The one time we had a scary encounter due to the roofing material company negligently placing roofing tiles where they sled down the roof, the provider had his own workers secure the tiles and made sure the roofers were back quickly to finish the roof. And though it was a relatively dry year, the provider always made sure the construction area was covered in case of rain and that all materials were protected. And being a native Southern Californian, I get cold easily. This house never had central heat before and right as the heating and air units were being installed, we had a few of those below freezing temperature nights. This provider worked his magic and it was pure joy to come home to the warmth of a heated house when the temperature was dropping rapidly. We were very impressed with the quality of the workers we were fortunate to have. They were all thoughtful and friendly, even one time going after one of our dogs that had escaped. Their craftsmanship was excellent, with beautiful staining, molding, cabinetry and stone work. We choose to remain living in our home during this process and this gave us a day to day first hand experience as to the construction. The provider showed great patience in making sure we knew what was going on and would discuss every detail if we so wished. I would never have dreamed of all the decisions that must be made and it was wonderful to have the provider's guidance but be given space to make our own choices. During this past year of noise, mess, dust everywhere, flat tires, one big dirt cat box for a front yard with its own

I have since learned that I generally do not have to pay for kitchen designs - as with The Kitchen Store and one other contractor I tried. There was to be no pressure to use the provide to provide the kitchen, however, there was much pressure. In fact, there was so much concern about signing the contract that day - the contract was nearly

. No mention in the contract of what was included - and what was not - all verbal. The cost was the highest estimate I received and at least verbally did not include everything that the other estimates did.
