"First visit had to cancel because impending rain storm. Rescheduled week later. Two workmen came. Measured what was needed to repair wood on 2 foot section of" front door jam and on rear outside window sills of double windows. They went to store to pick up supplies. Then spent a few hours with both repairs. Front door repair went quickly - cut out rotten wood and replaced and primed painted. On rear window - had to cut out/chisel old rotted window sill and replace with new wooden sill (at an angle). Primed painted. Cleaned up. Asked for me to review work which was done well. Only thing I needed to do was touch up with colored paint I had on hand for maintenance of outside trim on windows. Would recommend and use again.

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.

?
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.

Your basic rights and protections under law are probably outlined by your state and city's laws. In most states, the easiest way to look up your basic rights and privelges as a consumer would be to visit your state's attorney general website - you can usually find lots of great tips to protect yourself as a consumer there, too. Here's the National Association of Attorneys General's national listing, which includes a link to each state's attorney general website: http://www.naag.org/current-attorneys-general.php

Beyond those basic rights under the law, your expectations of a contractor during, on and after the completion of a job should be explicitly outlined in the estimate and contract. Although it can be a pain in the butt, ALWAYS read the estimate and/or contract before sign it! I cannot stress this enough - frequently the cause of someone's negative experiences with a contractor can be traced back to too few details in the contract.

We've covered contracts, and what you should expect to see in them, here: http://www.angieslist.com/contractor/signing-a-contract.htm

Good luck!

retiled our fireplace. We was professional, explained everything that he would need to do and why, and was very tidy. We were impressed by his ability to mix the travertine tiles in just the right way to get the perfect color balance. He is a real artist. He gave us the fireplace of our dreams!

During the 1st visit, Omri took exhaustive measurements of the kitchen and asked questions about what I wanted out of the new design. He then walked me through a computer program that built the kitchen step by step, checking on different aspects and making adjustments as we went along. He offered up some great ideas and also took my suggestions to heart. During the 2nd visit, we discussed the construction plan in detail and made a few adjustments/changes as various issues revealed themselves. In the end, we had a great design and an estimate that fit our budget.
One of the best parts was Omri's professionalism. He was upfront about the fact that condos have more inspections than houses and we appreciated the company's determination to play by the rules.

Ithaca Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
was wonderful. She came out and looked at our kitchen. She came up with design ideas. We met a couple of times and she did spend a lot of time with us. The job would have included knocking out part of a wall; relocating plumbing, electrical, and gas lines; new cabinets and countertops.
We got 4 estimates for this job, and our choice was between
Ithaca Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
and another contractor. Ultimately the deciding factor was simply that we preferred the cabinets the other contractor used. This was just a matter of personal preference, not that there was anything wrong with
Ithaca Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
's manufacturers. The bid was very competitive, and we would not hesitate to get bids from them for our next remodel project (probably a bathroom).
The estimate for this project was $35,000, which was right in line with other bids we received.

is super fantastic and wonderful and all the things! She helped draft my plan, brought her experience and expertise with different options, checked and double-checked the order to make sure it was perfect. She was a joy to work with and I wish I had a dozen more projects to work with her on.

Called and scheduled an appointment for a basement bathroom remodel. He gave me a two hour window. I made myself available and waited for him to come. He never showed up and never called to cancel the appointment. I have not heard from him since, not even a phone call. What a waste of my time!

All went extremely smoothly from start to finish.
Ithaca Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
made sure that all details were handled, including working with the
Ithaca Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
board for approval of the project, notifying all neighbors that the project would be happening, taking their calls and responding to their concerns throughout the project. He taped a schedule outside my front door so that neighbors could see what was happening and how much longer the project would go on. I left for work in the morning just as Kyal was arriving most days, and by the time I got home, the place was straightened up and locked. Only one Saturday was required to get things wrapped up before I left for vacation. Other than that, work was done between 8:00 and 5:00 each day, which is GREAT when you live in a condo complex and lots of people are affected by the noise. Demo went quickly. Subs were all very nice. Top notch quality and attention to detail throughout the first floor of my condo now. It went from 1990 to 2015 in a matter of 9 weeks.

. Mr. Trauerrnicht (contractor) showed up promptly at agreed upon time. His sub-contractors proved extremely efficient and competent. arriving when they said they would. The whole process, including removing, painting, and replacing doors and drawers took about six working days.
To say that we were pleased is an understatement. We are delighted. We have worked with various other contractors, but
Ithaca Bathroom And Kitchen Remodeling Contractors  Provider Name Locked
is the best. Highly recommended.
