Recent Review: This is a family run construction company. I called for an estimate to remodel a bathroom at a rental property. I live 60 miles away from the rental and needed someone who could do everything long distance. Mr. LaValle responded quickly, contacted my tenant, visited the location and sent a written estimate via email. It was detailed as to exactly what he would do for his labor cost. The labor estimate was $3800 to complete the work. I purchased the needed items at stores close to me and Mr. LaValle picked them up at two local home improvement stores close to the rental property. My parts cost came to $2200. The total bathroom remodel was $6000. Mr. LaValle, kept me informed as to the progress, via email and telephone conversations. The original time estimate was 5 days. It took 9 days to complete the work as there were unexpected problems discovered when he removed the fiberglass shower stall. The drain was old and corroded. He had to jack hammer the cement out and replace the drain. His original estimate had been to put in a prefab fiberglass shower pan. We wanted it to be a full tile shower, including the floor. We also asked him to install a recess (for shampoo and such) and a grab bar. He completed these things without changing the Labor price. All of this was done during the New Year holiday. I had conversations with my tenant during the construction. She had nothing but good things to say about the experience. She was happy with the work, said the workers were always on time, and cleaned up each day after the work was done. The bathroom looks beautiful, and is done in a professional manner. Mr. LaValle is a good businessman. His communication and technology skills allowed me to complete this remodel, see what it looked like (he took photos and sent them via email) and pay for it (with a credit card) all from 60 miles away. I plan on using him again for remodeling the second bathroom in the rental. I wish I could use him for remodeling at my residence, but he's too far away!!

Recent Review: We selected Mr. Stetzel based on his current AL rating/reviews and the fact that he is licensed by the State of CA and carries his own insurance. Mr. Stetzel came out within a few hours of the initial phone call to provide an estimate. Within an hour after our first meeting he was able to provide a very reasonable estimate which included clearing away the old/damaged debris, repairing, & reinforcing the structure and clearing away all the construction materials from the job. He got it all done in less than a day. Very pleased with his skill and professional service. I'll definitely give him a call for any future work.

Recent Review: It started out to be a great experience. I had the Hall Bathroom Shower that was fiberglass refinished and a crack in the floor repaired. I also had the Master Bathroom tub and shower that was fiberglass refinished and some chips in the tub and one the top edge repaired and glazed. When he was done with both bathrooms I looked in and they looked great. I followed the instructions that he gave me to the tee. He left and later that day I noticed that he left part of his equipment in the master bathroom sink, a long scrubber on a pole. I called him to let him know. No answer, left message. Called him two days later and left message. Finally him called me and said that he would pick it up on Monday. He never came. Six days later I noticed that the tub in the master bathroom felt different from the glazed part on the edge of the tub. After really inspecting both bathroom I realized only at the repair points is where the y were reglazed. The rest of the shower and tubwas just scrubbed down real good. I then noticed while cleaning the master bathroom tub that the repair points where the chips where had come out. I call John to let him know that he still had not picked up his cleaning tool and that the repair on the tub did not last. He came by two days later and picked up his tool. He told me that he would be back tomorrow to repair the tub. He did not come back I called him and left a message that I need him back to repair his work and that the tub and shower were only cleaned and not completely glazed. O left many messages over the next entire month. He never picked up and never called me back. I gave up. I thought I had posted this on Angie's list already but it slipped by me because I have totally remolded and refinished my home so I could put it up for sale. Only now as I was putting papers together for my taxes did I come across the paper receipt on the pathetic excuse of a business "Perma-Glaze: aka John the tub Doctor". I really need this done right and I am so disappointed that he was so unprofessional and did not do what I wanted. Please be careful when having some one refinish you tub, shower, sinks or what ever. I do not want anyone else to go through what I had to endure.
