Recent Review: Remodeling is a tricky thing. No matter how dated that tile or how dysfunctional that space, they are still elements of YOUR HOME. Even if you are not at all sentimentally attached to the "old junk", or impressed by the old school craftsmanship and materials, no one looks forward with glee to the dust and mess and parade of new faces which are necessities of such change. Before I met Burt (in Oct. 2014), I interviewed a half dozen contractors. Some showed irreverence for my space, my schedule, my biggest investment-- or all three. One led me to believe that through the entire process of gutting my 1950's bathroom down to the studs, I'd only be without that toilet for 3 days! (Having never been close to any reno work, I had no basis for disbelieving him.) Some clearly had a stock or standard plan of the vanilla room they'd leave in their wake. Some clearly were in over their heads, once they saw the space and methods used... but were not keen to decline the work. One suggested we combine the 2 rather modest baths into a "spa retreat"-- completely disregarding the reality that we have two teenagers under this roof!! Frankly, I was ready to settle for merely tolerating my contractor. Burt Davy is head, shoulders, and waist above the rest! He came in with a positive attitude, a patient ear, a willingness to offer input when requested, and an inspiring-- and not at all oversold-- confidence in his crew. Burt clearly makes thoughtful choices about his crewmen and subs, considering their workmanship, professionalism, and demeanor so that no aspect is left lacking. Everyone who came through my door to work did so with a cheerful, courteous manner, the skills to get their part done well and timely, and the grace to handle the inevitable setbacks, frustrations, and complications which a job of this scope will include. Each bathroom took about 3 weeks from start to 90% complete (100% functional); one was completed in Dec. 2014, and the other in Feb. 2015, accommodating various schedule conflicts we had; this timeline was perfectly acceptable to us. Each day the site was left not just livable, but safe and tidy. I was kept informed of whom to expect when, and this was honored faithfully-- with 1 exception near the end of the 2nd bath, when there'd been some crewman changes-- a temporary situation. I was so pleased with Burt, his project manager, Rob, and his crew that I am almost looking for another major project to give them!
