The tile work was completed in one day. The base was resealed and the new stone tile sealed with a penetrating sealer. Removed the old shower door, patched the holes and cleaned in preparation for the new door. This is the second time we have used Val and his crew. They show up on time, do their work professionally and clean up when they're done.

He did a top-notch job installing two shower doors for us. One was quite difficult. Easy to work with, honest and very east to get in touch with.

He removed wallpaper, rebuilt walls, skim-coated and painted, and has done ceramic tilework in our guest bath. He also did work in our masterbath where he installed a new shower door and tiled the floor. He does very good quality work. What I like about him is that he's honest about whether he is available at the time for your work because he does happen to be quite busy.

DUneek Design Build Remodel
On Monday, April 23, 2016 Uneek Design Build Remodel (Uneek) started a bathroom remodeling project including a new shower door, new replacement shower entrance curb (the previous owner needed this removed for an invalid access to the shower), new vanity, new faucet, new wall light, and new real stone tile surround above the tub. The job was done on Thursday April 27th we thought. Discourse with Unneek started going downhill when we noticed that the white grout on the tile filled in all the pits in the stone taking away the interesting shadows and replacing with unnatural white fill-ins. There didn't seem to be enough thought about how this would look or a lack of communication between the designer and the installer. On his last day we could tell the installer was clearly upset about our disappointment with the grouting and at one point threatened to stop completion of the project and demanded to be pay in full when the job was done. We waited to use the shower until all the sealing was dry. When we found that water was leaking over the shower curb under the shower door, we decided that we would stop payment on the last check to insure that the leak would be fixed. As it turned out, the designer made another stop on Tuesday, May 3rd with tube of clear sealer to attempt to plug the leaks. I had told her in a email I had sent after discovering the leaks appeared,that the top of the curb seemed to be slanted out away from the shower basin. She said the she had talked with the installer and that the curb was level on the top. We ended up paying the full amount with the express promise of fixing this leak under the warranty, but that we had to make the final payment before any repairs could be done. I was told by the designer that the problem would be repaired when they would be reserving time for their monthly warranty repairs on or around the last week in May. But the designer told me that there would be no problems getting the leak fixed then. I even have that conversation recorded on my smart phone. All three sides of the curb were tiled with the same real stone tile that was used around the tub. So when water would splash off from hitting the inside of the curb, it would gather with some water going into the basin from the splashing and some would end up outside on the floor; enough to saturate half the bath mat. A simple change in design of the curb construction with the inside wall being shorter then the outside wall would have made the leak a non-issue. We have made many attempts to reach Uneek by phone, email, and a letter via the post office starting in early June have not been answered. My wife was able to reach the installer by phone on June 23th at 9:13 AM. He said that he didn't know about these problems and would need to talk to the designer. The designer and installer are married.

Overall, it went well. Zenon came over to look things over, provide an estimate and took the time needed to explain our options, down to the selection of grout and how long it should cure to prevent bacterial growth. He also referred us to a good vendor that gave us a contractor's discount on the new shower door. The only problem we had was punctuality; the job started a day late and continued a day or two longer than we'd planned, which meant re-arranging our work schedules several times. This had been reported on Angie's List, so I had prepared for it as much as possible, but it still caused us some inconvenience. I must also add that Zenon did work to re-schedule things so we had to juggle a bit less. The whole job lasted a work week. I would, however, still hire this company again because we were so pleased with the end result.

I just went to the showroom to look at options. Barry Seaberg was very helpful and then came to the house for measurements. Installation was great and the installers were very professional.

It went very well. I was greatly impressed by their courtesy, professionalism, and attention to detail. I have a beautiful new bathroom, and I'm very happy with it!
Recent Review: Very professional crew and very responsive to a small change that need to be made. We thought that throughout the installation we were dealing with people that wanted everything to be done perfectly.
Recent Review: The removal of the tub and building the new shower and closet and new floor took one week. The glass for the shower and the shower door had to be special ordered once the shower was done. It took three weeks for the glass to arrive and it was installed in one day. Later we realized that the shower door was not lining up with the glass wall. We called Clear Choice and they came out and determined the glass wall piece was not straight. They immediately ordered another piece of glass and installed it when it came in. Communications with their general manager, Brandon Hoehl, was great. Whenever I called and left a message he replied either the same day or the next day at the latest. He kept us informed all the way through the project. The employees that did the work were professional and cleaned up at the end of each day so we could use our bathroom. I would highly recommend Clear Choice.
