Vista remodeler creates dream kitchen and bath

Member Larry Schwartz of Encinitas, Calif., recently hired highly rated ECS Construction of Vista, Calif., to remodel his kitchen, two bathrooms and two fireplaces.

Here’s what Schwartz had to say about his experience:

I can’t say enough about Eric Stephens [owner] and his crew. Over the course of several weeks, Eric created my dream home. He was friendly, professional and punctual. He responded promptly to all communication and was incredibly responsive to our questions and concerns. He offered helpful suggestions and solved every issue that arose in a calm, competent manner.

In the kitchen, he saved money by keeping the cabinets, and sent them out for a beautiful paint job. He altered an awkward hood/vent arrangement to create a custom look, removing an unattractive fluorescent light soffit in the process. He fabricated gorgeous white quartz countertops, fitted in a huge farmhouse sink, set up the appliances, and made my new faucets, garbage disposal, and icemaker work like magic.

He re-faced the dual-sided fireplace with beautiful bricks and created custom-made wood mantels. He made the flue and damper safer, so now I’m ready for cozy fires on chilly evenings.

The transformation in the bathrooms really showcases Eric’s skills. He demolished a bathroom that was covered in beige tile and created a spa-like, fresh, white retreat. I now have a huge shower with a vintage exposed fixture, a glass-tiled niche, a corner seat and a frameless glass door. The showstopper, though, is the claw foot tub. Somehow, Eric made it work in that space and it couldn’t be more beautiful. I can’t stop looking at it!

In the guest bath, Eric re-tiled the floor, vanity top and shower walls with white subway tiles, instantly brightening the space. The house gleams, functions and looks updated.

The dining room is particularly lovely since Eric affixed bead board around the lower half of the room and hung up a chandelier, to which he added extra chain and a ceiling medallion. His crew kept things clean, quickly hauling away any debris. They were considerate of my neighbors, keeping the inevitable noise and mess to a minimum.
