A dash of modern finishes updated this boring kitchen to the hottest trends
To move or not to move? That’s a question many families struggle with when they realize their home isn’t practical for an aging or disabled family member.

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.
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.

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.

I would hire
I now have a beautiful and functional kitchen that more than meets my needs (including a dishwasher, disposal, and gas
An old building is not without its challenges but
I could not be happier with the final result.
His many recommendations were spot-on and budget-conscious - for example, the in's and out's of cabinet construction or the ideal cabinet sizes in relationship to our specific kitchen
comes only from experience.
He really made us feel comfortable with his sense of humor and can-do attitude. The level of communication he provided was as good as any service professional I have EVER dealt with ... whether it be via phone, email, or face-to-face.
He was there to make sure that everything was done correctly and more importantly, that we were happy with my new kitchen.
Each day in the construction, I caught something wrong. And it was dumb stuff that a contractor of his experience should have been able to figure out on his own and not have me worried.
1. Recessed light installed in a place where a recessed light couldn't exist due to the floor plan (which he had in his sight every day of construction, taped to the window).
2. Sink faucet was installed without plumber's dope around the base. So any water that lands next to the base (you know, from your wet hand turning the faucet off) will drip into the cabinet beneath.
3. Sink faucet was installed with the handle facing us, instead of like the picture on the freaking box, turned to the side.
4. Placement of the pendant lights weren't such that the two pendants were evenly spaced across the window they hung in front of.
5. Two of the cabinet faces on the drawers came from the factory installed at the wrong height, so the drawers wouldn't close. We had to figure out what was going on and then tell
6. The microwave oven vent comes from the factory so it can vent to the outside. We provided the manual from the manufacturer to
7. It wasn't an issue, but it could have been. The light switch above the sink is JUST BARELY (like .5 a millimeter) above the backsplash. Since he didn't really plan it out/draw it out, this could have been an issue since no light switch plate would have covered the opening.
8. The one floor joist that I told him needs support (because a structural engineer had come in and pointed out that it needs support) he did not support. He just tiled over it. So now I have hairline cracks forming in the wall resting on that joist due to the joists's movement.
Just be ready to check, double check, and triple check everything he does and if he recommends
I would suggest to make sure you do your homework before any work is done. He expects you to know what you want. My other suggestion is to make sure everything you want or talked about is on the estimate.
Also during the time the porch was being reconstructed a city inspector came buy and wanted
Our kitchen designer-
We compared the cost of cabinets that we believed were comparable (if you're shopping for cabinets you'll realize very quickly that there are more companies than you can imagine and you're really not sure about the quality of what's being sold). The cost came in between $3,000- $5,000 less than other estimates even from Home Depot and Lowes.
Once we decided on
We met their contractors who seemed great and knowledgeable but we did not live in NJ, so there would have been some licensing concerns with some of the contractors.
We were told the cabinets would take up to 8 weeks for delivery, but they were ready much earlier (4-6 weeks). We had no problems with the delivery process. Our contractor inspected them at the time of delivery and was impressed with the quality of the cabinets. The cabinets are from Starmark and are really of high quality. Our contractor called
We are extremely happy with our renovated kitchen, the cabinets are great. Now having lived in our new kitchen for a few weeks, we are increasingly happy with the smart design. I would absolutely recommend their services.
