Aurora Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Reviews
After we decided upon the overall vision, we worked with
Bottom line, you will find design/remodeling firms out there that are cheaper. I can tell you from experience, Design First is the way to go. They are honest, creative, and will give you something even better than you dreamed
p.s. Design First worked on a few other houses in the neighborhood, and each one is better than the next. I especially love what they did to a friends master bath. I have no idea how
Is it harder to work with? Not for a professional installer. Installers need to work faster because of the epoxy set up time which requires at least two helpers... This is why I wanted to hire a professional. I used it in a powder room without any issued but didn't feel comfortable with the master bath.
Why epoxy? Because it's bullet proof, no staining and REALLY easy to keep clean. If you are considering a large glass door or steam shower you had better pick epoxy or you will be sorry. Downside for epoxy? None.
Quite frankly, their bid of $8,692 for a 8'3" X 7'2" bath and a shower stall was extremely high. Remember, this was for the regular grout. Note, their price didn't include the tile. It did include the shower door and heated floor. The shower door allowance was for $850.
We ended up selecting a different contractor that works for a flooring store. They are expert epoxy installers who by the way didn't charge any extra labor for the epoxy. The price ended up being lower but I don't shop merely on price. I want top pf the line materials and workmanship-- otherwise I could do it myself.
The contractor offers a 5 year warranty while the store we selected provides a Lifetime Warranty. Of course, it makes a difference that the store we selected has been in business for almost 70 years. We choose a top of the line shower door with clear shield for $1,013 from a separate company."
Long story short,
For the record, he’s a man of integrity. After careful consideration, I trusted him with a key to my house which allowed me to work as normal. I could have made another decision, but I was comfortable with him and he proved worthy of my trust. In 2013, that’s saying something. I'll have my master bath renovated in the spring and there's only one person I'll call. His work is truly amazing.
Although I had created a floor plan that was relatively detailed, there were some framing questions that arose during construction. All of the solutions that were suggested by his team were reasonable and executed quickly. There wasn’t any attempt to up sell or create a change order to the quote. However in the bathroom there was an issue with the roughed in soil lines that my home builder performed. This did result in a change order that was very reasonable and performed without any impact on the schedule.
All crews were polite and very respectful of our home. They left the work space broom clean every night. The drywall team did an amazing job of managing the dust that is created by the Spackle and taping process. We are extremely happy with the project and have recommended "
They were on time every day, well prepared, professional and very hard working. The quality of their work was outstanding. The workman were friendly and very knowledgable about all aspects of the job mentioned above. The job was done quickly, on time and within budget. IT was a pleasure to work with Nick who estimated our job and stayed very involved to make sure all was proceeding as planned. I highly recommend this company as they not only perform great work, but are fantastic at communicating, keeping the customer updated and their follow-up is tremendous. I will use them again and actually am about to start another job with them now. "
