Small master bathroom renovation
Description of Work:
Completely gutted the tiny Master 1/2 bath, originally built in 1965, repaired
water damage from the old shower which leaked into the walls over the years,
Rebuilt the shower from the drain up. Installed Ceramic tile on the floor and
in the shower, Custom built all of the cabinetry in the room, Installed granite
counter top for sink, painted the room.
If I were doing this again, I would have worked closer with the contractor to
select the tile for this project. As it was, I shopped for the tile in advance
and unknowingly selected a size that was very difficult to work with in such a
small area. In hindsight, had I shown LoneStar a photograph of the type of tile
I was interested in, I believe they would have helped me select a style which
was better suited for the small (3' x 3' x 8' tall) shower and still have looked
great. That said, the team from LoneStar Contracting did an excellent job of
laying the tile I had chosen. It added a week to the project, but the final
results look FANTASTIC!
The Shower, sink, Linen closet, clothes hamper, and over toilet cabinet were all
custom built to fit this bath. The construction is solid and well made. Lonestar selected the grab bars that were installed. Instead of the simple industrial grab bars, they purchased a style that blended perfectly with the accessories (towel bar, toilet roll holder, soap dish) I had selected for the bath. I guess that is what impressed me, was the way Lonestar paid attention to the small details, keeping me involved in a any of the decision making processes. In addition, The workers got along well with my dog, so I did not have to keep her crated during the entire project.
Another thing that impressed me about LoneStar Contracting, compared to the other companies I solicited for this project. LoneStar Contracting ALWAYS answered the phone when I called. Not once did I need to leave a voice mail. When I called for an initial quote, they were here the next day to look over the project, and LoneStar provided me with a quote with-in 24 hours of the survey. (compare that to the competition which took a week to prepare the quote.) Even If I emailed or SMS'd the foreman, he responded back with-in the hour. The level of customer service from LoneStar is something that I greatly appreciated. I will contact LoneStar Contracting again when we decide to redo the Kitchen. And I highly recommend you give them a call for any home remodeling projects.
