"Great from the get go.
provided a wealth of information from the first time we talked with him. Their estimate was not the cheapest but also" not the most expensive. The estimate included a lot of detail, including pricing for items that may turn out not to be needed. That way there really are no surprises along the way. C&M is extremely thorough and neat from the estimate through to the finished product. During the work they took great care in protecting our hardwood floors, carpet and furnishings, and built us a solid and beautiful shower. Along the way they never hesitated to show us what they were doing and why things were done a certain way. Because of the old shower leak they went to great lengths explaining why that happened and how they make sure those kind of leaks won't happen. They will be returning soon to do the second phase of our bathroom remodel. Great guys who demonstrate a high level of competency and integrity!

"She cashed a check from us for $5000.00 in
, but didn't order the materials we picked out from the fabricator she sent us to. We contacted" them and they said they had not heard from her and can't fabricate the countertops until she pays for them. We contacted her many times. She promised us that if she couldn't get it done within 2 wweeks she would return our money. After repeated phone calls and still the material wasn't paid for we told her we were cancelling all work with her and to send our money back. That was over a month ago. We have since filed a claim with small claims court. She has our money and has provided no service.

Angie's Answers


This part of Don's answer follows my thoughts exactly: 

"You want to deal with a professional person that is selling you a bath that was not working as a cashier a few months ago."


Do you go to the gracery store and ask for someone to cook your steak?  Of course not.  So why would you go to a building supply store and ask for someone to remodel your bathroom?  Rarely will you see a legitimate contractor take jobs from a retailer.  Why?  Because they don't pay much.  Speed is the most important thing to them, along with getting it done cheap so they can maximize profit.  About 10 years ago I worked on a few contracted structures (sheds, garages, etc.) from Home Depot.  They contracted to another company who then contracted people to build them.  At that time they paid a flat $250 for a contractor to pick up the supplies, build the structure on site, paint it, and use their own tools.  By the time the cost of a helper, fuel, tools, etc. was factored in there was nothing left for the contractor.  Anyway, the point I'm making is that the guy who will eventually show up to do the work will be so far down the line that everyone else has already taken the profits (Home Depot, ReBath, possibly someone else, and finally the guy working) that he probably isn't going to care what kind of job he does for you, quality or not.  He likely won't have much experience due to a high turnover rate and any experience he does have will probably be limited to his teachings at that job.  He probably can't answer any building code questions or identify other hazards once things are taken apart and he certainly won't do anything he doesn't have to while it is apart. 


Another problem I've heard of repeatedly is that if (when) there is a problem there is always someone else you need to speak to.  You might have to talk to 4 or 5 different people before you can even get to someone that can address the problem.  Now multiply that due to having (at least) two separate companies involoved.  "You need to call ReBath."  "No, you need to call Home Depot."


You hire a general contractor for a reason.  We learn, understand, and keep up on building codes.  We are the one point of contact for all questions and issues on a project.  There is no manager in some other store, state, etc. to call.  You contract a GC and deal directly with that GC, or a site supervisor in some cases.  There isn't a huge chain of command to get through to reach the main decision maker for the business.  In a bathroom remodel you need someone who can do the plumbing, repair and/or move any electrical, install tile/flooring, drywall and paint, trim carpentry, and someone to coordinate all of that.  Sometimes you can find a qualified contractor to do all of those things and sometimes he will sub-contract out certain components (especially due to licensing laws) but you will always have that one definitive person to go to for any questions or issues.  A salesman in a store doesn't visit your home throughout the project to check on the status.  Even if he did, he likely wouldn't now what he is looking at.  The same goes for a retail manager.


Hire someone who specializes in taking care of your home.  Hire based on reputation & knowledge/experience.  You are right that not every customer can be happy so an occassional bad review can be found on just about any business.  Read the reviews, not the grades (they are always biased).  Look to see if the contractor attempted to rectify the problem, not ignore it.  Lastly, unless you want cheap, sloppy work and a whole heap of other troubles, don't hire based on a low price.


You gave a good description, but without seeing some photos and maybe even the space itself it would still just be a guess.  


A few years ago we replaced a significant load bearing beam to raise it up a foot in the new kitchen.  It was nearly 17' long with a new LVL beam.  For us this was pretty reasonable.  The LVL was about $250.  And maybe 12-15 2x6s, to temporarily support the ceiling joists, were probably like another $75.  The labor was $800.  There was also some finish work done afterward, but that was worked into a much bigger job for the entire floor. 


Technically speaking, it is likely that you need to have something spec'd out by an engineer or architect, to calculate load, etc.  I don't know your area but in most places "a mere contractor, GC, or carpenter" is probably not allowed to just rip out a load-bearing wall without someone who is qualified to do the load calculations (which will be VERY conservative.  A brand new LVL will be VASTLY stronger than it really needs to be, but it won't be expensive.  The typical contractor will be like "hey we'll sister up two 2x12s", and not really know if that'll do the trick or not.  I'm not saying that all guys are like that, but ... it is what it is. 


What you are talking about is probably at least a bit more involved and I'd love to give a good estimate but it's hard to say without a better understanding of the space. 


You may be looking at $1500 - $3500?  It depends on too many specifics that we just can't know without a bunch of photos, and maybe even opening up a wall or ceiling to see exactly how temporary supports could be installed, and where the permanent beam/header could be placed and properly supported.  Your span isn't all that big so if at all possible I would do it without columns - it'll be much nicer. 


If I were you I would first have a quick consultation with a "professional engineer".  They are qualified to calculate load etc - and cost a lot less than a full architect.  In my experience, an engineer just wants to provide a quick, proper solution without a lot of extra BS.  My experience with architects has been less than favorable.  Too much drama and expense and he actually spec'd things wrong and my carpenter had to pick up on it. 


Sorry I couldn't be of more help.  Good luck!!!

Hair spray is one of those things that is really bothersome.  We've run into this alot unfortunately.  And NOTHING we've found will actually clean it off.  The problem is that if you just paint over it, you still see shiny spots wherever the hairspray was.

Our companie's policy is to prime the area with any bonding primer.  This will seal the hairspray in and not let it affect the next coat of paint.  It would also be a good idea to lightly sand the area first.

Our recommendation for primer would be Zinsser's BIN Spray (red can) and can be bought at most paint stores or home improvement stores.  Other than that, any thing that specifically says "bonding" for a primer should be adequate enough. 
What I always ask my customers regarding this question when remodeling bathrooms is how good they will be about maintaining and cleaning the new bathroom, especially when the old bathroom is obviously neglected.  If you are one of those people who wipes the glass down after a shower and cleans your bathroom every week or two you really don't need to spend the extra money.  If you are at the other end of the spectrum and clean it when it finally bothers you enough it may not be a bad investment.  I've had customer tell me they can tell a difference compared to their old glass without it and others say it made no difference at all.

Remodeling reviews in Urbandale


Overall things went well with our kitchen remodel for the part of the job that was completed by
Urbandale Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
. Their team showed up and completed all of the prep work required to for the IKEA to be put in. Overall work quality was good with no major problems. They even coordinated with the IKEA contactors towards the end of the project to confirm everything was in order before they showed up. The only problem that we had with the project was that all of the materials from the flooring to the backsplash said it was on next day pickup from the suppliers, however when we enquired about each item, they turned out to be backordered.

- Paul P.

Urbandale Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
did an amazing job remodeling two of our bathrooms as well as remodeling our master bathrooms shower. The crew was professional and responsive, and we never once felt as if they were trying to sell us something we didn't need or want. They did such a great job on our bathrooms that three or four other homes in our neighborhood also went with Classic. Highly recommend.
- Judi R.

Urbandale Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
who runs the company is very responsive and also has excellent suggestions when you are not sure what you want. Work began and proceeded daily other than some unexpected order delays. Workers were polite and responsive and totally trusworthy as work needed to be done when no one was at home. The results are stunning - a brand new kitchen. This was also done at a cost below several other estimates and with quality materials such as the automatic soft-close kitchen drawers.
Highly recommend!
- William K.

I contacted
Urbandale Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
to replace some facia boards at my home that were termite damaged. They had a special advertised on Angies List for $99 for 4 hours of work, and this job was easily under 4 hours. First, I had to call and email to get the attention of someone at the company, after I had already paid via Angies List. The delay in getting in contact put the work into a rain period, so I had to duct tape the exposed areas to keep water from penetrating the house in the meantime. Finally, a "Quality Supervisor" came to the house and looked at the project, commenting that the job would require the worker to climb a ladder and that could be an issue. By this time I had already purchased all the replacement lumber and removed all the termite damaged wood myself. By the next week, I had replaced all the damaged wood myself and caulked the lower sections because another storm was predicted and I was tired of waiting for
Urbandale Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
to schedule a worker. Finally, a worker was scheduled to come out and he did a nice job applying the last bit of caulking on the upper section (yes - while on a ladder). The job took him less than an hour, so I essentially paid $99 for an hour of caulking work. I did the painting (upper and lower) myself.
I would not recommend this company to anyone.
- Robert H.

We had a major complex job changing our entire kitchen out, new cabinetry, new flooring, new stainless steel appliances, granite counter top, the works. New light fixtures and light switches throughout the entire home. New flooring in 3 other rooms (main bath, sun room, entry way). Painting done in 4-5 rooms as well. Not only did they do the job promptly but the whole job was finished in 3 weeks, which is amazing, and they did excellent work. Long story short, contract with confidence. These are people with the resources, creativity, and integrity to get your project moving in the right direction!

were outstanding. These gentlemen were always prompt and very professional. At the end of each day, they made sure everything was cleaned up before they left. Their work was outstanding. Very pleased with the new shower. It looks so updated and amazing. And to top it all off, we received a gift basket from
Urbandale Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
thanking us for contracting with them. I have never received a gift from a contractor before. Quite impressive. Will use them for our next project and highly recommend them.
- David K.

Absolutely the most professional service we have ever used. It was hard to believe they were able to accomplish everything that they did because it was like they weren't even here. Quiet, clean, and outstanding workmanship. Plan on using them again in the future for another project.
- RJ M.

I hired
Urbandale Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
to transform an existing storage room with a terrible layout into my new office and a study area. I really appreciated their expertise, I think it really helped to avoid potential issues and create a very useful space. The design they suggested added windows and really transformed a useless space into something that works well for me. The work they did included running new electric so that it would function well as an office, replacing the existing flooring and painting. Their transparency was also very appreciated. I always knew what was happening and if a problem arose, not only did they keep me informed but came to me with reasonable solutions.
