Recent Review: (Continued from first section) Lance, one of Nicholson Builders' tiling experts, tiled the majority of the bathroom including the radiant flooring. He did a beautiful job and used the more difficult, more expensive, mold-resistant epoxy grout in the bathroom. Only issue now that we are actually using the bathroom is that some of the slate is leaking iron rust onto the light-colored grout in a couple of spots in the shower. Nicholson Builders is now aware of this issue and they are looking at available options to fix this. During the renovation, we decided to put down 5" solid hickory hardwood floors at $5372, new stain grade risers and hickory treads at $1749, and a new hickory banister at $710 on the stairs. Wood was ordered and installed by Nicholson Builders. The banister, risers and treads were custom made and installed by Kevin, who did a superb job. Aaron had the walls and ceiling insulated and once this was done, George, the homeowner, hung and finished the drywall. Homeowners primed all of the walls. During drywall installation, Kevin sanded an old framing area on the stairs for four hours to straighten an old wall at an additional $220. Custom wood doors for closets and a pocket door for the bathroom were made and were stained at $450 additional cost and were installed. Amish (Mervin Yoder) built custom cabinets for the bathroom, and custom shelving were installed. Handles selected and ordered by homeowners were installed at an additional $185.85. Bathroom fixtures were installed and new water heater. Aaron returned and he and Kevin, the finish carpenter, designed and built a custom bookshelf at $750 along the kneewall running along the top of the stairs and installed trim around windows, doorways, and floors. Adding sills cost us an additional $370 under our casement windows in the dormer. Kevin's workmanship was excellent throughout. Due to the upcoming holiday, we decided to have Jim Thomas, the painter, with Dave, another painter, paint the entire renovated area at $4175. They did an excellent job. Final electrical lights, outlets, switches, vent covers, were installed. Tools and any remaining materials were removed and a deep cleaning was done in the renovation area. Aaron and Dave, his boss, did a walk-through to see if anything got missed or needed to be fixed. Owners walked with them. Brian and Amy did a walk-through to see if anything got missed or needed to be fixed. Owner walked with them. We plan to use Nicholson Builders again for other renovation projects and would definitely recommend their services to anyone in the Columbus, OH area considering renovations or new builds.
