We knew it was time to remodel the bathroom when we saw the first tile of a 25 year old bathroom rise from the shower floor. After a review of local contractors claims and advertisements, I was more confused as to how to find the best contractor and value for our home. I turned to Angie?s list and promptly received the names of 2 local ?A? rated contractors. I called them both and both immediately responded. I met with both contractors and I selected Matt?s Pro Plumbing. What was particularly remarkable about Matt is that he immediately knew that the size and configuration of our bathroom project would entail much more tile work than plumbing. Rather than try to complete the tile work and receive the full contact price himself, he contacted BL Remodeling LLC to provide the tile service, which we estimate accounted for 75% of the project total. I found Matt?s unselfish approach to be refreshing and his A rated reviews on Angie?s List told me he was the right person for the job. Shortly thereafter, I met Brendan of BL Remodeling LLC, another truly class act. If it were possible, he exuded as much or more confidence and honesty as Matt did. Brendan was as easy going and as fair as a person could be. Nothing that was asked of him was too difficult and he never made any request an opportunity to enrich himself. Finally the day arrived to begin and Brendan showed up. I asked about his crew, as I prepared my home for the onslaught of laborers that I presumed would show up. He told me he worked alone and by the end of the first day, he had the bathroom gutted and all debris meticulously hand carried down 2 flights of stairs and placed in huge barrels for removal. Unbelievable! In order to coordinate all of this, it was necessary for Matt?s crew to shut off water, remove fixtures and cap pipes. All was accomplished with a few hours of Brendan?s arrival. At the end of the first day my bathroom was gutted AND my home was left spotless! This continued through the 2 week process as Brendan cleaned up every day before leaving. It was impressive. More impressive however, was the rebuilding of the waterproof shower known as the Schluter System that Brendan installed as he began to rebuild our bathroom. Each day?s progress was promising as the bathroom took shape. The walls, floors, vanity and lighting all went into place. Accomplishment occurred each day and there was never a failure to show up. Everything happened as Matt and Brendan planned as they worked diligently. During the project, Matt?s father passed away and we were expecting to have some delay in completion. During this time, we did not speak with Matt, but he kept in close contact with Brendan. On the day the project was scheduled to be compete, an ancillary project of installing a gas line to the kitchen had not been started. I expected it would be delayed several days and take an additional day or 2 to complete. On that morning, Matt?s crew showed up, reconnected all of the plumbing and began to work on the gas line. Matt showed up shortly thereafter and directed his men. By 3:00 that afternoon, they were finished. All of this was remarkable, but if something was even more remarkable, Matt and Brendan completed my project for the price they had quoted. There were no mistakes, ?things I did not understand? or any issues over the workmanship or quality of materials. We began using the bathroom the next day and we found a few things needed attention. An electrical outlet did not function, a sink drain connector failed and the hot water needed adjusting. Matt showed up that morning by 9:00 a.m. in response to my 6:30 a.m. email. The plumbing issues were resolved. I failed to mention Ralph, their electrician. He is the senior member of the team who fits so well with Brendan and Matt. Ralph told me that he is so pleased to work with these young men who take their careers very seriously and are extremely professional. I could not agree with Ralph more who exhibits his own brand of professionalism. The reason for the call back was that my GFI failed. Ralph replaced it?no charge! When it comes to plumbing call Matt the Plumber and if you are remodeling anything, call Brendan. I am sure that when you hire these fine gentlemen, you will also meet Ralph. These men are extremely professional and a breath of fresh air.
