Recent Review: I called Chris from Residential Remedies and he came over that afternoon to look at our bathroom. He was very personable and knowledgeable. We received a quote from him within 48 hours. He quoted $4,000 for labor, plus any materials he would have to buy. (He provided receipts for all purchases.) They were the one contractor that was able to give is a quote within our budget (others quoted $7,500-$8,500). Chris and his assistant, Bob, did most of the work themselves (versus subcontracting), which I think enabled them to bring the price down. Chris estimated two weeks of work. He started work on a Thursday and worked every day except Sundays. Work was completed in 13 days. They were usually good about arriving on time (8-8:15am) though there were a couple days they came a bit later. They worked until about 4pm. (Only once did I actually see them take a break.) They worked consistently throughout the day without wasting time. Chris and Bob performed most of the work, except for bringing in an electrician to install the lighting and outlets on the first day and a plumber towards the end to install the plumbing fixtures. Some unanticipated issues arose during construction: - The concrete floor was significantly off level (existing problem). Chris had to poor self-leveler concrete to make the floor level enough to tile. - The shower drainpipe was set too high (by a previous plumber) so Chris had to build up the shower floor when creating the shower pan. - The old vent fan had no ductwork in the attic (it just blew right into the insulation) so Chris had to install ductwork directing the humidity out through the roof overhang. (None of the above items were accounted for in the quote and could have all been extra costs, but Chris agreed to only charge us for the floor leveling—an extra $100.) What I liked: - Their efficiency. This was a big job and they completed it in the time promised. - They did a great job dry-walling and texturing the ceiling and walls. - Their friendliness, flexibility, professionalism. Chris came across as being an honest person and eager to work. There were some minor hick-ups along the way, as with any big project, but Chris and his crew were prompt in righting them and in the end, we came out with a gorgeous bathroom everyone raves about. I would be glad to give Chris my business again.
