" from Hi- Tech Builders was very helpful in designing our bathroom renovation. His office staff was very kind and would email us daily with" updates on the job. The crew was punctual and hard working. The crew made sure our little dog was safe and away from the bathroom when we weren't home. The finish product is a beautiful renovated bathroom that our family will enjoy for years to come. We highly recommend using for all renovations.

"We hired the company to do a complete kitchen remodel. They gave us a fair price considering the great work they did and were at our house" as scheduled throughout the process. We asked if we could do some work ourselves to cut back on project cost so to use some of the money for new stainless steel appliance and they were very accomadating with that. In fact they ended up helping us out on our do it ourself backsplash work that we probably should have been charged. Just a real good company and a real good experience for myself and my family. We are very pleased and now have an amazing kitchen. Good work guys!

Angie's Answers

This part of Don's answer follows my thoughts exactly: 

"You want to deal with a professional person that is selling you a bath that was not working as a cashier a few months ago."

 

Do you go to the gracery store and ask for someone to cook your steak?  Of course not.  So why would you go to a building supply store and ask for someone to remodel your bathroom?  Rarely will you see a legitimate contractor take jobs from a retailer.  Why?  Because they don't pay much.  Speed is the most important thing to them, along with getting it done cheap so they can maximize profit.  About 10 years ago I worked on a few contracted structures (sheds, garages, etc.) from Home Depot.  They contracted to another company who then contracted people to build them.  At that time they paid a flat $250 for a contractor to pick up the supplies, build the structure on site, paint it, and use their own tools.  By the time the cost of a helper, fuel, tools, etc. was factored in there was nothing left for the contractor.  Anyway, the point I'm making is that the guy who will eventually show up to do the work will be so far down the line that everyone else has already taken the profits (Home Depot, ReBath, possibly someone else, and finally the guy working) that he probably isn't going to care what kind of job he does for you, quality or not.  He likely won't have much experience due to a high turnover rate and any experience he does have will probably be limited to his teachings at that job.  He probably can't answer any building code questions or identify other hazards once things are taken apart and he certainly won't do anything he doesn't have to while it is apart. 

 

Another problem I've heard of repeatedly is that if (when) there is a problem there is always someone else you need to speak to.  You might have to talk to 4 or 5 different people before you can even get to someone that can address the problem.  Now multiply that due to having (at least) two separate companies involoved.  "You need to call ReBath."  "No, you need to call Home Depot."

 

You hire a general contractor for a reason.  We learn, understand, and keep up on building codes.  We are the one point of contact for all questions and issues on a project.  There is no manager in some other store, state, etc. to call.  You contract a GC and deal directly with that GC, or a site supervisor in some cases.  There isn't a huge chain of command to get through to reach the main decision maker for the business.  In a bathroom remodel you need someone who can do the plumbing, repair and/or move any electrical, install tile/flooring, drywall and paint, trim carpentry, and someone to coordinate all of that.  Sometimes you can find a qualified contractor to do all of those things and sometimes he will sub-contract out certain components (especially due to licensing laws) but you will always have that one definitive person to go to for any questions or issues.  A salesman in a store doesn't visit your home throughout the project to check on the status.  Even if he did, he likely wouldn't now what he is looking at.  The same goes for a retail manager.

 

Hire someone who specializes in taking care of your home.  Hire based on reputation & knowledge/experience.  You are right that not every customer can be happy so an occassional bad review can be found on just about any business.  Read the reviews, not the grades (they are always biased).  Look to see if the contractor attempted to rectify the problem, not ignore it.  Lastly, unless you want cheap, sloppy work and a whole heap of other troubles, don't hire based on a low price.

?

You gave a good description, but without seeing some photos and maybe even the space itself it would still just be a guess.  

 

A few years ago we replaced a significant load bearing beam to raise it up a foot in the new kitchen.  It was nearly 17' long with a new LVL beam.  For us this was pretty reasonable.  The LVL was about $250.  And maybe 12-15 2x6s, to temporarily support the ceiling joists, were probably like another $75.  The labor was $800.  There was also some finish work done afterward, but that was worked into a much bigger job for the entire floor. 

 

Technically speaking, it is likely that you need to have something spec'd out by an engineer or architect, to calculate load, etc.  I don't know your area but in most places "a mere contractor, GC, or carpenter" is probably not allowed to just rip out a load-bearing wall without someone who is qualified to do the load calculations (which will be VERY conservative.  A brand new LVL will be VASTLY stronger than it really needs to be, but it won't be expensive.  The typical contractor will be like "hey we'll sister up two 2x12s", and not really know if that'll do the trick or not.  I'm not saying that all guys are like that, but ... it is what it is. 

 

What you are talking about is probably at least a bit more involved and I'd love to give a good estimate but it's hard to say without a better understanding of the space. 

 

You may be looking at $1500 - $3500?  It depends on too many specifics that we just can't know without a bunch of photos, and maybe even opening up a wall or ceiling to see exactly how temporary supports could be installed, and where the permanent beam/header could be placed and properly supported.  Your span isn't all that big so if at all possible I would do it without columns - it'll be much nicer. 

 

If I were you I would first have a quick consultation with a "professional engineer".  They are qualified to calculate load etc - and cost a lot less than a full architect.  In my experience, an engineer just wants to provide a quick, proper solution without a lot of extra BS.  My experience with architects has been less than favorable.  Too much drama and expense and he actually spec'd things wrong and my carpenter had to pick up on it. 

 

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.  Good luck!!!

?
Hair spray is one of those things that is really bothersome.  We've run into this alot unfortunately.  And NOTHING we've found will actually clean it off.  The problem is that if you just paint over it, you still see shiny spots wherever the hairspray was.

Our companie's policy is to prime the area with any bonding primer.  This will seal the hairspray in and not let it affect the next coat of paint.  It would also be a good idea to lightly sand the area first.

Our recommendation for primer would be Zinsser's BIN Spray (red can) and can be bought at most paint stores or home improvement stores.  Other than that, any thing that specifically says "bonding" for a primer should be adequate enough. 
?
What I always ask my customers regarding this question when remodeling bathrooms is how good they will be about maintaining and cleaning the new bathroom, especially when the old bathroom is obviously neglected.  If you are one of those people who wipes the glass down after a shower and cleans your bathroom every week or two you really don't need to spend the extra money.  If you are at the other end of the spectrum and clean it when it finally bothers you enough it may not be a bad investment.  I've had customer tell me they can tell a difference compared to their old glass without it and others say it made no difference at all.

/ Foster and his crew did such an amazing job! We are so in love with our new kitchen!

Great! Result is just what we wanted. We couldn't be happier. They were responsive to correcting a minor leak under the sink. Later, provided the over-the- cabinet to match.

We found through Angie's List. In the process we did 4 interviews and received estimates from each of the four.. From the outset we found Tunch to match his reviews on Angie's list and became comfortable with him in short time. He is straightforward and honest in all his dealings and his recommendations for conducting ...More the renovation and remodel were outstanding in every respect. When we started the process we had many questions. Tunch provided us many ideas and options and the pros/cons for each, and this enabled us to make decisions which we are now very happy with. He was very pleasant to work with, and very responsive to our questions. Our team leader, , was exceptional in his performance as well as his "A to Z" knowledge of what had to be done and how to do it. He took whatever time necessary to ensure that the work was detailed and professional in every respect. We are extremely pleased with our remodeled bathroom and there is absolutely no question that Tunch and his team at will be at the top of our list for our next project. They are superb in every respect.

and had done work at my house before and they were terrific then. That is why I brought them back to do additional work. came in to give an estimate and I booked him immediately.

To be fair, this happened many years ago before Angie's List. The date is approximate, as is cost. I am hoping they have changed since then. We wanted window replacements but they did not have what we wanted. After a very hard sell by a man who would not leave our house with even a strong hints, we agreed to the above work, then never saw him ...More again. No one came to check on progress or quality of work nor called to follow up when the work was done. Cigarette butts were left behind and I found one worker urinating in my backyard. I was younger, and just wanted the whole thing done. I wish I had said something at the time. The work was only fair quality at best.
