In our latest bathroom remodel, we finished up the third bathroom in this home. It was in dire need of an update due to a shabby pre-sale remodel. It is common for a homeowner who is looking to sell to re-do their master bathroom pre-sale . Of course they don't want to pay very much or take any interest in the project because they won't be staying so, they usually get a pretty horrible job. This bathroom fit right in to that description.
In this blog post I have pretty extensive before and after shots for you to enjoy. I love this blog post because you get a real sense of what the difference is between what we do and a builder grade, basic yes- man tile job.
Let the viewing fun begin:
Most people never use their whirlpool tub and the homeowner decided to eliminate it entirely. We made a large drying area for them to use.
Here we have our inset box vs. the competition.
The previous shower floor was a real gem. It had a crooked drain. Bullnose curb with a few grout lines to collect dirt, and a pan that wasn't draining properly because there was no pre slope.
The above photo sums up the difference between us and the competition in a nutshell. The framing on the right....Six 2x4's stacked on top of each other to attain their wall height. The photo on the left, plotted, planned and executed with a mastery developed in a four year trade school.
Notice the corner of this shower, which was entirely built with hardie backer board with absolutely NO waterproofing. This shower was a swamp.
We ended up getting them set up correctly, with a full Schluter Shower with Quadec profiles and a tileable drain. This will never mold, mildew or leak. Notice our curbs are solid pieces with limited grout lines. Chattahooche Glass doors did a great job. Notice NO penetrations in the shower curb, so no worries of leaks!
Our plumbing fixtures are actually SECURED. I can't tell you how many jobs we see that the plumbers simply don't even bother to secure the plumbing fixtures so they are just flopping in the stud bay, ready to cause a leak. A good bathroom remodel is many details added up!
Please take some time to watch the videos below. The first video is a prep video for this bathroom. How many companies are posting videos of what is UNDER their tile work?
Finally, we have a full walk through with commentary. Every bathroom we build is a point of pride and we put our brand name on each one! Every job is an audition. Let us SHOW you the Hamilton Tile difference...
