Aurora Remodeling Contractors Reviews

"We had a small wet bar insert in our family room, and contracted with
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to remove it and install new dry wall over the insert.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave a very reasonable estimate for the work and it the work was scheduled to be completed within a week.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a good job of removing the wet bar without causing any damage to the house and removed all of the larger debris and waste items himself. While the wall was open and exposed,
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
took the initiative to suggest that we move plumbing and ductwork that was
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
behind the wet bar, in anticipation of future remodeling work that was planned for the future. After agreeing to the additional cost,
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his colleague went ahead and rearranged the water, sewage and HVAC ductwork so that they would not be an impediment to future remodeling work on the same wall. When the plumbing and ductwork was completed,
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
installed new drywall and did a very nice job of seamlessly mudding and finishing the wall so that it would be ready for painting (which was done by another company). Overall,
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a very good job in a challenging environment. After each day's work, he made sure that the room was vacuumed and clean before leaving the house, and he was always very clear on what he was doing and why. We were very pleased with his work and would recommend him highly for any future contracting work.
"This operation went extremely smoothly with everything according to instructions and contract. The job started promptly and ended with a complete clean up.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
will fabricate, or have fabricated, wood components that "handy men" will not touch. He has a complete wood shop and does not hesitate to use it if required....more /> I also am a woodworker and very critical of what others produce, but as a professor of computer science, I do not have time or the additional labor to do what I require
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to do and
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
does it very well.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
has done other major remodeling projects for us including a loft library with a spiral stair case that we are very pleased and proud of. I suspect Mr.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is too because he was able to work from my sketches and verbal instructions while I adapted that major project along with his suggestions. There are few craftsmen that can use and discuss abstract ideas ahead of a drawing. I appreciate this quality. I would not hesitate to use
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
again. Our association in projects goes back perhaps 20 years.
"All work was completed on time on budget and to my satisfaction. The place was left in a clean and orderly condition when the work was completed.
An overall quality experience
"It was awesome. We met with
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he got to know us, our lifestyle and what we were dreaming to do. He walked through the house and he came up with creative ideas, many we would NEVER have come up with ourselves. He warned us that the things we were most apprechensive about would probably be our favorite things, and he was right! He has a great vision. I also like his honesty. If he thinks one of our ideas would look hideous or wouldn't fit with the overall plan, he let us know it. He would also tell us if what we were thinking wasn't worth the money ( from his experience). He's not a "yes" man... he just tells it like it is. I think this is one of the qualities and benefits that set Design First apart from other companies.It puts them on an entirely different level.
After we decided upon the overall vision, we worked with
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and she helped us with the details of the design. What could have been an overwhelming process, she helped guide us while still letting our vision come through. Our project manager,
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, was the BEST! I can't imagine getting though a remodeling project without him. If something comes up, he was just a phone call away and fixed any problem. Were there delays? Here and there. Of course! When you are dealing with a project this big, that happens with whoever you hire. Nothing big and no big deal. What I love about Design First is that they truely care about quality. If something wasn't up to their expectations, they would do it again, or fix it until it was... even if it came out of THIER pocket. I like their integrity.
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
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
dreamed up the unique layout... I'm saving my pennies so he can do something special to mine!
"Salesperson is wife of installer and while very pleasant has little technical knowledge. We wanted epoxy grout; especially for the shower. Is it more expensive? Yes, the material costs increase. In our case it was about $250 because we choose a pebble shower floor and wall niche.

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.
"Mitigator failed to test walls for moisture before determining proper treatment.
After calling and asking for moisture readings they then came back 4 days later and determined they were borderline so removed 2 ft of drywall and insulation.
Sprayed basement with antimicrobial treatment to keep mold from from growing.
Charged for work in bathroom they did not do. - later changed on bill (Trust factor now at zero)
Charged for drilling walls AND for cutting drywall even though they did not do proper tests on initial visit. Also 2 contractors and insurance adjuster all recommended drywall removal immediately based on amount of water and time water was in basement. (these guys are supposed to be experts at this???)
Overcharged for fans and humidifiers (claimed way more than was needed in this case). Insurance adjuster told me overcharges were in range of $300.
Contractor never told us they were charging Emergency After hour rates even though we scheduled base on there availability 3 days after flooding. (We had already done the majority of work removing water, moving furniture and all carpet and padding)
Contractor again charged After hour rates for second visit even though they were done during normal business hours.
Overall charges for amount of work done was highway robbery.
PS State Farm Insurance RECOMMENDED them and now will not cover all the charges!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, quality of work is excellent.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is super efficient and organized and really is a pleasure to work with."
"I work in a call center, so I'm constantly interacting over the phone. Mr.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
made it seem like I was inconveniencing him to be calling to talk about our project. I don't understand how he manages to stay in business if he's passing up remodeling work for new home owners, especially after I mentioned Angie's List directly. I would highly suggest not even bothering to call Mr.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
about your project.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the salesperson was very detailed during the quoting process covering items like colors, grain finishes on both the siding and trim, trim options, flashing, etc. We had another vendor give a quote and no details were covered. Although that company provided a rendering of the house of what it would look like, just a flat price was given.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had every detail listed.

The other vendor left us with three color samples after we described what we thought we wanted.
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
left the entire color palette so we could choose. When we got the two quotes we couldn't even compare since so many details were missing on the other. Once we got apples to apples,
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was $10K lower.

The crew was punctual and pleasant every day. We knew them by name and it was actually welcome to see their smiling faces in the morning.The project finished on time with no hiccups. Every night they cleaned up the house and used our garage to store all the equipment. Outside, only work tables remained in the yard each night - all debris was placed in the dumpster they had arranged. All in all, it was a great experience. They even installed new exterior light fixtures for us that we were going to do once the project was over.

I would definitely give them a look.
"I asked for an estimate on some significant bathroom repairs related to long term structural water damage to the bathroom floor and sub-floor. The appointment
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
were super-friendly and accommodated my schedule. I live 750 miles away and was only going to be available a few days while I visitied my Mom who lives in my house. The estimator was extremely knowledgeable, educated me regarding a variety options and things to be sure to ask for in my other estimates. He even went so far as to indicate that given the nature of the repairs that I might do better with a smaller contractor in terms of price. He followed up with me by phone and mail with just the right frequency. When all was said and done the
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
quote was actually the lowest and best value for contractors of any ignificant size. I ultimately chose an independant contractor who was introduced to us through church and completed the job at a much lower price than
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
could compete with, however I would have no problem whatsoever recommending
Aurora Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and would definately use them for larger jobs.
