Large, vaulted ceiling bathroom was original to house, circa 1986. Wanted large whirlpool tub removed and replaced with large soaker tub. Purchased higher height vanity, and decided to replace vinyl flooring with ceramic.
We chose
because the
, the owner, is local and company small enough to offer personal service quickly. Job was started in early June, with estimated completion in 3 weeks. Actually took 6 weeks; job was finished mid
.
, the project manager, was conscientious about quality work. He and an apprentice helper did most of the work; arrived promptly each day and worked steadily.
checked in frequently, and scheduled subcontractors (plumber, electrician), who also lived nearby. City building Inspections passed, so no hold-ups occurred. City surprised us by requiring an upgraded electrical circuit, and this took an entire Saturday to re-wire. We weren't charged extra.
was obsessive about smoothing spots where wallpaper was removed, and leveling the walls before tile work. They were still patching/sanding walls when the ceiling was primed, and several walls were painted before all the patches were sanded. Walls were painted, then drywall compound would be applied to a stubborn spot, and the whole wall would be redone. Some of the nail pops that were repeatedly covered/smoothed have now reappeared. So, not sure if all the effort was worthwhile.
With all the drywall repair/sanding, there was a lot of dust. The ZipDoor failed the first week, and did little to keep the mess out of the bedroom and hallway. They covered the stairs and entryway with plastic and tarps, but it needed to be mopped daily, not just swept with a broom. I purchased a new ZipDoor myself, but with all the running in and out to cut and trim tile, it didn't last long either. A final one was put up after I requested it. The granite tops arrived before
was done with the flooring. I asked that the floor be scrubbed and mopped before the vanity was installed, but it was put in place over the grimy floor tile. It wasn't easy to clean afterword, but I did that myself.
We purchased the tub, vanity, tile, plumbing fixtures, lighting, and granite ourselves. The original contract granted allowances for those, and
would procure those if we had preferred.
did supply the shower door and toilet, working w/i the contract allowances.
Overall, we are satisfied.
and his workers were easy to work with and complied with our requests. Subcontractors were excellent and arrived on time.

Very professional and knowledgeable on the phone. Provided a fair price, and completed the project quickly as promised. Great attention to detail. Selected this company based on prior reviews on Angie's List, and would use them again. I would definitely recommend them!

to do a full remodel of our kitchen and they did a fantastic job. They are always extremely professional and courteous and are happy to answer questions or explain the work process. The work area is always left clean overnight and ready for the job to begin the next day.

Excellent experience. He showed up on time and worked all morning on the shower. Best news of all I can use the shower tomorrow and it looks great. He then worked on the kitchen floor. He showed me that not all the apparent grout stains were from cooking. Some of these stains were from previous sealing of the floor. We decided together that cleaning those up was more than either of us was interested in doing. The kitchen looks much better.

They were very reliable. The person I had was very nice, he went out of his way to do more than he actually had to. There was rotted wood under one of the tubs so he replaced that. He did electrical work,too, he was kind of a
Lombard Tiling Experts Provider Name Locked
of all trades. I've called him back for minor things, too. He gave me his number and it is ok with
Lombard Tiling Experts Provider Name Locked
that I can use him when I want something done around the house. I thought the price was very fair, I had 3 or 4 other quotes and they were by far the best.

responded to a message for a quote within hours after it had been left. Came out a few days later for a quote & sent an estimate via e-mail. Worked full days to complete the project and moved up start time instead of having to wait 6-8 weeks. The work was done while I was at work. The overall appearance of the finished bathroom is good, however attention to detailed features are severely lacking for someone "with 27 years experience". Prior to the project, placement of electrical outlets and switches had been marked but not followed. Repairs were needed to correct the error. Notes were left regarding questions or directions about different aspects of the project, but were often left unanswered despite phone numbers having been left on every note in case something came up. A diagram was left regarding the tiling on the shower area. Diagram was not followed because "in their opinion" it was not correct. This caused me to have to buy more tile in order to complete the job that they had altered on their own accord without consulting me first. The tile is not evenly spaced at 1/8 of an inch. The spacing varies from 1/8-1/4-1/2 of an inch, which caused air holes and cracking of the grout. This was brought to their attention multiple times.

stated that it was my fault for having requested spacing of 1/8 of an inch instead of 1/16 of an inch as he saw fit.
Lombard Tiling Experts Provider Name Locked
also stated that if I had put sanded grout on the walls this wouldn't have happened because it can handle wider spacing and no air bubbles to occur. Also, the walls were not even so that is why there is a 1/2 inch gap at the seem of the two shower walls which is covered by a line of grout with silicone over it. These are the walls that he took down and put back up.
Lombard Tiling Experts Provider Name Locked
agreed to add some grout to fill in a few air holes but there is nothing else he can do. Phone calls have been placed to the tile supplier as well as the grout manufacturer. Multiple sources stated that the cracking is due to incorrect spacing and mixing of the grout as well as 1/8 of an inch spacing is standard, and you do not put sanded grout on shower wall tile. It was suggested that I remove the grout that has only been up for a week and start over. I do not understand while they saw fit to alter the plans for the tiling of the shower because it was incorrect that they did not change the spacing of the tile in order to correct another error which would only cause a damaged product in the end. The repair work to the other bathroom ceiling and painting was also disappointing. The seem on the bathroom ceiling is not straight but wavy. This theme also occurred with painting on the main project. The edges of ceiling and along tiled areas also ended up being wavy and not straight. I think a lot of items were "eyeballed" and it shows. Some areas needed 3 touch ups before they looked somewhat decent. Taped joints are also starting to show through the paint. For an Angie's List Award

and his crew were on time, very responsive, they worked fast and were done within a few weeks. They did excellent work and are nice people. The price was very reasonable as well. They even hauled all the old cabinets and tile away which was very nice.

It went very well and we were totally delighted not only with the finished product, which we love, but also with the experience from proposal to applying the finishing touches. They were entirely trustworthy from start to finish, and were also very competent and fast, while still taking pride in doing high-quality work.

Walls was straight forward and fair in his pricing and stood by everything in the proposal. His partner and project manager
Lombard Tiling Experts Provider Name Locked
is very skilled and warned us of all the challenges they encountered (and surprises are inherent in a remodeling project), but always gave us options and excellent advice. They let us know when to expect them, arrived on time, did their work efficiently, were polite and considerate, and left things orderly at the end of each day. They recognized the inconvenience of losing our kitchen, and helped us set up a temporary one in the basement. There is no question that I would hire them again if we do another project.

We were very pleased.
Lombard Tiling Experts Provider Name Locked
gave us a detailed list of what was to be done complete with estimated times and costs. He patiently went over all my husband's requests for wiring. He also came up with some ideas we hadn't thought of that were excellent additions. The job was completed within the time frame estimated even though I made some last minute changes. The crew was unobtrusive, polite, and everything was cleaned up nicely. We will be remodeling another bathroom and will certainly call

to do the work.
