Home Remodeling reviews in San Bruno
We started with demolition of the previous garage setup that the previous owners put together (e.g., DIY - makeshift lumber storage and patchwork plywood paneling - ugly and a perfect home for hordes of spiders).
We then started with the electrical work. This part of the work was part upgrade and part fixing what the previous owners did to the house. For the upgrade portion, we increased the amperage of the main circuit breaker of the house from 100A to 200A. This was driven by my personal desire to add the capability to support an electric car charger, solar panels, and a hot tub (still lobbying the wife about this one) in the future. As part of the electrical work, we moved the existing electrical sub-panel in the kitchen to the garage. The kitchen sub-panel was in the perfect spot - right behind the range/oven. If I had to change out a fuse (note that I said, "fuse"), that would require me to literally grab the entire full size range/oven and pull it out from its spot pinned between the granite counters. Definitely, not fun and not legal. Concurrent with installation of the new sub-panel, we strung the necessary wiring through the studs to strategically placed electrical outlets placed throughout the garage. Goodbye extension cords!
After the electrical work was done, we then started looking at insulation and drywalling. Like with all projects, there are always hiccups. Looking at the garage walls during a rainy day,
Next, we then looked at the plumbing going to the hot water heater. The previous plumbing installation placed most of that plumbing on the studs themselves, preventing us from drywalling flush across the wall.
Overall, the drywalling looks great. The insulation works beautifully. And most importantly the garage looks clean and bright, and also provides ample room for me to install storage anywhere. Very very happy. It was great to work with
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
