Our master shower had a known leak from the shower door that we were aware of when we bought our home. Overtime, the leak began affecting the drywall next to the shower door and the floor, which is carpeted, in front of the door. Additionally, the shower head began a slow drip in the last 9 months that increased in tempo to a fast drip. We interviewed two companies for the repair, and we chose Fred Sons for two reasons. First, his assessment of the shower was extremely thorough and analytical, during which he pointed out several possible, additional causes for the leaks. Second, his estimate was incredibly thorough and detailed (7 pages long), and let us know that he absolutely had taken every possibility into account. We hired Fred to demolish the existing shower in order to ascertain if there were any additional water issues that were hidden from view. We brought in a housing inspector who worked with Fred to thoroughly examine the demo and make sure that we understood the extent of the water damage and what would be needed to repair the damage. Fred welcomed the additional help and worked well with the inspector. Together, they found four (4) water issues: the leaky door, condensation due to the lack of insulation between the shower and the outside wall of our house, a leak behind the shower head and the shower trim and a leak in our tiled shower bench. There was a standing pool of water underneath our shower even though it had been a week since it had been used. Then the remodel began. Fred properly insulated the outside wall and completely replaced the shower floor, drain, the damaged sub-floor and the drywall. He also created two access panels which did not exist before (for the shower rough valve and the motor to our jacuzzi tub), bringing the both the shower and the tub up to code. The latter access panel was visually consistent with the wood trim (half-rounds) that surrounds the tub. Fred went over and above the call of duty in several ways. When we realized that the tile that existed throughout the bathroom was no longer available Fred spent his off hours finding an alternative supplier for tile with the proper color and dimensions to match the existing tile. Without this, the entire master bath would have needed re-tiling, which could have cost an additional $5,000. Additionally, Fred let me borrow his van when my husband's car was in the shop unexpectedly. This allowed me to pick up the marble curb for the shower, allowing us to stay on time with the project. Fred was a pleasure to work with. He patiently and thoroughly answered all of my many questions, and gently advised me against making certain changes to the shower (complete re-tile, wheelchair accessibility) that would have added substantial cost to the project. Instead, he recommended smaller changes that improved the aesthetics of the shower without adding cost. My husband and I are extremely satisfied with how the project turned out and now can rest assured that there will not be any further water damage to our home. We intend to rehire Fred in the not-too-distant future to remove the carpet and replace it with tile and to add a better fan in the same bathroom.
