" J and A Remodeling did a terrific job. They set a date quickly, gave me a time and arrived right on schedule. The work was done fast, but well, with a minimum" of inconvenience for me. I was really impressed by the drywall patch which matched the existing surface, and the installation of the window which was surrounded by tile. The tilework was not damaged at all. Quality of the work was excellent. The workmen were very kind and easy to communicate with, and were willing to help me when I had a question about maintenance; They even helped me remove a stubborn bolt in a toilet seat!
and Jemal did a terrific job in estimating the cost and keeping it reasonable for my budget. The final cost was exactly the same as the bid, no surprises. I appreciated that
didn't try to enlarge the project beyond what was needed. Some companies wanted to virtually replace the ceiling just to patch a small hole! In fact, I am so happy with their work that I plan to hire them again when I remodel my kitchen.

"I called Rod over the phone to explain the job I wanted to do and he was able to send me an email estimate of work. The process was very smooth and was done quickly." He gutted our tub surround down to the studs and replace with hardibacker and a new tile job. Everything looked great and was done quickly. The price was good too! I will definitely use your services and/or refer you in the future. Thanks again.

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.

and Bath did an exceptional job. I recently purchased my first home and I contacted

to perform all of the renovations I had in mind. After explaining to them what I wanted, I went to the showroom and with the help of the staff I chose unique granite and cabinets for my kitchen. They had a tremendous selection, which made it difficult to choose from, but the sales persons were always willing to help, even when I changed my mind last minute. Once the renovations began,

Scope of work:
Remove old gray bathtub in main bathroom upstairs (bathroom
#1) and the three surrounding walls in order to update the tile an replace gray
old tub with new white tub. In order to
remove original cast iron tub, floor had to be removed. The vanity and toilet
had to be removed and later put back in place. New ceramic floor has to be
installed. Master Bedroom (bathroom # 2)
shower had a cracked base which had to be removed and replaced. In order to remove base, the bottom two rows
of tiles had to be removed on the shower walls.
Prior to Job
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
(owner) gave me a list of things to buy
at the home center stores so that all would be present when the job got
started. While shopping, I had questions
about certain items on his list. He answered
the phone and was always accessible to me by phone. He is a contractor that actually calls you
back. How rare is that these days? If you
do not want the details which are extensive scroll down to the SUMMARY.

Day 1 Beginning of
the renovation of bathroom #1:
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
arrived
between 7:00am-7:30am as advised prior to beginning the job. He came in and removed the three walls of
tile surrounding the tub as well as the vanity and the toilet.
Day 2 Continuation of
demolition:
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
came with his
helper
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
. They started to try to rip
up the old floor in bathroom #1 but found that there were actually two
floors. One was built on top of the
other. Original floor was in mud on top
of subfloor. Then cement board was added
and another floor was laid on top. No
luck getting the floor up on this day. A
jackhammer was scheduled for day 3. In
the meantime, they went to work on bathroom #2.
Two rows of tile and the cracked shower base was removed. The new shower base was ordered with new
shower doors. The shower drain has to be
adjusted for the new base.
Day 3 Continuation of
demolition:
Day three was noisy.
The jackhammers came out and the whole house shook. The floor was removed but because of the
vibration the dining room ceilings nails and drywall screws started to back
out. So now the dining room ceiling had
to be repaired. Drywall was cut out and
a new piece installed.
Day 4 Tub removal:
Now that the floor was removed the cast iron tub was able to
be removed.
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
informed me that the
plumbing for the tub was actually plumbing for a sink. The size of the pipes were wrong and the
drain had practically no pitch for water runoff. He replaced the plumbing and drain with
PVC.
Day 5 New Tub Install:
The new tub was installed.
My pipes that went to my sink vanity were moved to the wall. Previously, the pipes came up from the
floor. This was probably done due to the
fact that this wall at one time was an exterior wall and whoever installed the
plumbing did not want the pipes to freeze over the winter.

Day 6-10 Install:
Now that everything has been demolished and removed, all
that was left was to put the bathroom back together. New wall tile, new floor tile, and the new
toilet was installed. Whenever there was
a question about something, I was consulted.
Nothing was ever done without my approval. The new base for bathroom #2 was delivered on
day 8 and was installed on day 9. Two
rows of tile were added to the shower because the shower doors are supposed to
but up against the tiled wall to prevent any kind of leaks. This is not how they were previously
installed and I had drywall damage due to the incorrect installation. The finishing touches such as towel racks,
soap dish, and towel hook were put in on day ten. Both bathrooms were finally
complete.

Summary:
If you want things done right you hire
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
and his crew.
He is a true professional which is a rare find these days in the residential
construction industry. There are many contractors out there. Many of them know how to do the work but very
few know how to run a business.
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked

knows how to run a business. He knows
the meaning of customer service. He was
prompt in returning my phone calls. He
kept me informed of what was going, on when it was going on, and how to take
care of problems as they appeared. He
and his workers,
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
and
Wilkesboro Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
, were true workhorses who were courteous to me
and my family.

And NO I am not a relative of his.

After two weeks our daughter got a paper towel and placed in the wall where the moisture had been--went outside sprayed the water on the area --came in and looked at the paper towel and it was wet. Thus, we diagnosed the problem and told them about this over the phone. They returned to do the same thing and then began water proofing the brick on the exterior. The did this at lest 6 or 7 times. The 2 workmen that installed the sheet rock and painted were great! The 2 fellows that painted the room were excellent at painting! We were very pleased with the .WORK that was completed by these guys. Oh and the garage water only needed a plumber to clean the line. My husband sat out watching as the washing machine emptied and saw the water bubbling out. The plumber was fantastic and the problem was solved. United came and took away the sump pump and the walls were repaired and painted. This is a case of home owners finding the problem and diagnosing it as well. We did not know we could. We were very tired of our house being torn up and waiting on United to earn their money!
