Had Irpino construction do a complete gut and remodel of a master bathroom in a downtown townhouse built in 1998. Quote also included some miscellaneous projects (inserting new ceiling lighting, some electrical work, etc) This review is about a year after, so the details are not fresh in my mind, but I'll do my best. I got quotes from 3 contractors, and Irpino's was the most expensive, but I went with him because his communication, organization, and professionalism was far and away the best of the three contractors I interviewed. The project began in late October and extended into January. It was originally slated as a one month project but that clearly went far beyond that - part of that was due to issues on both sides (I'll take a significant amount of the blame as choosing, designing, ordering supplies, and waiting for them to arrive turned out to be a bigger project than I had originally thought Dominic had referred me to a number of vendors - some were great, some were pretty good. The final result, aesthetically was awesome - the bathroom looks great. There were some snafus along the way, none major, most resolved - some not. The pluses: -like I said earlier, the communication from day one was always solid - Dominic was always friendly, responsive, and to the point. When problems and concerns arose, they were addressed in a timely fashion. -Dominic made some great suggestions regarding installation and basic design to help guide us through a lot of the process in regards to picking and choosing tile, fixtures, grout, paint colors and type, countertops and essentially helped us a bit in turning the picture of our dream bathroom in our minds into reality. He's definitely not an interior designer, but for a contractor, can give some great suggestions if you're not using a designer. -his build team was consistent - had a lead foreman, two or three laborers that were consistent through the project - only additions were a subcontracted plumber and a subcontractor to fabricate and install the shower door. The minuses: -again, cost was a bit more than other quotes, and the final invoice did come out significantly higher than initial estimate - again, some of this was due to the addition of smaller projects I added along the way throughout the house, some were due to unforeseen finds during the construction process. -a few construction problems / functionality problems - again, not sure whether they could've been avoided but worth mentioning. -sinks drain very slooooooow - still tough to get used to - not sure if it's a plumbing issue or a design issue, but had this been seen ahead of time, we may have approached it differently. -used 3x6" glass subway tile in the shower - through the winter, a number of these cracked - in the spring, Irpino did come out and replace all of these, but still haven't been able to pinpoint the problem (temperature? vibration? installation?) have had one crack this winter so far as well. -had a leak in the shower basin a few weeks after install - explained that it was due to existing piping and Irpino did fix the next day. -during demo, they did throw away some hardware (minor) that we were planning on reusing. Summary: End result - B+/A- communication was always solid, and that goes a long way in my book. Some issues with construction - still not sure whether or not they could have been avoided, but it is possible. Price point a bit on the high side. Update 10/14 - I have updated the overall grade to an A (from a B) - although we have had some design issues, Dominic has been great in addressing them and fixing them in a timely basis. He has also addressed some other things not related to the project and has been very accomoodating. Again, I stress quality issues may or may not have been avoidable, but Dominic has been nothing less than friendly and resposnive in addressing them. After having worked with a number of contractors and design-build firms, I've learned to value communication and responsiveness as much, if not more than, quality of work and Dominic and irpino are the best I've worked with in that regard.
