2007 CotY Awards – Residential Bath $30k-$60k

The original bathroom had a shower pan failure that went undetected for years. About three years before the decision to remodel, the owners noticed water pooling under the carpet next to the shower stall wall. Eventually the tile outside the shower started to sink in. The owners hired a designer, who hired a contractor for a “reasonable” price. The owners of this home contacted us after their project had already begun.

 

The original contractor had started the project and within two weeks there were a series of delays; unfinished demolition, incomplete treatment of the dry rot, and unapproved changes to the plans. Over the next two months the owners discovered that the contractor had lost his license, had no worker’s compensation insurance, did not pull a permit, had installed plumbing illegally and then went out of business. After these problems, the owners had a difficult time finding a contractor that would take over the project. They contacted our company and within a few meetings the owners awarded our company the project.

 

The owners wanted to repair the dry rot damage and create an updated, luxurious bathroom. The remodel included a new, spacious, walk-in shower with a glass block surround, a separate Jacuzzi tub that was wrapped with custom cabinets, a new custom vanity area, new exterior French doors and a new glass block window. The toilet area was to remain separate from the rest of the bathroom and it included a new custom cabinet for toiletries. All-in-all, this remodel changed the existing ordinary bathroom into a deluxe bathroom suite.

The walk-in shower  was wrapped with a unique Decors glass block enclosure.  The same accent tile that was used in the floor design was installed along the bottom of the shower enclosure.
