We're really glad to have been part of this small project. The homeowner is a great person.
She wanted to update her master shower and tub tile and we did just that.
We strip everything down to the studs and build new. Here you see the rubber membrane, then the mortar on the bottom right and the shower tile on the bottom left.
It's a cumbersome process getting rid of the old tile because afterwards there's prep work needed for the new tile.
But it sure looks awesome when it's done.
Here's a view of the 2x4 studs where Fernando is getting ready for to install the membrane.
The pic is the James Hardie BackerBoard sealed with shower mesh tape and liquid cement to prevent water from leaking out.
A nice little before and after.
Very nice looking tile and excellent tile work. Pics don't do this project justice.

BUFORD: Every now and then we get called in to finish a job up and this was the case here.
The client wanted us to wrap up the tile but the drain wasn't centered as it should've been. Not moving it would've likely created water draining issues.
Yup, we had to cut the concrete to make it happen because this was the basement.
We also had to remove the existing HardieBacker Board in order to build the shower base & in order to NipTuck the rubber membrane behind the walls.

We were very fortunate to have been selected to come in and bring our clients condo back to where it was before the water lines busted back in February (insurance claim). What did we do?
Removed two layers of wallpaper, repaired the drywall, and painted (we're very very good at drywall).
What else? (scroll down)
We installed new R24 insulation on this exterior wall and installed new drywall. What else? (scroll down some more)
A new kitchen! (sort of). Actually we insulated the pipes to help prevent future issues and added 24 insulation as well. We also installed two (2) 5/8 sections drywall around the perimeter. Why? Code requires this due the walls being adjacent to the neighbor. Helps fire spreading.
We fixed some plumbing issues and installed her base cabinets, countertop, and sink.
What else? (keep scrolling)
New kitchen floor tile!! We installed a decorative - 12" and 18"
What else? Keep scrolling...
New laminate flooring!!!

Love to be involved in bathroom redo's. On this particular situation we were not the original contractor; we got involved after he left.
We jumped in essentially into a gutted bathroom and finished installing the tub, insulation, backer board, wall tile, some floor tile, toilet, and 4" vanity.
We also finished the wood floor on the foyer bath, along with its vanity and toilet. Replaced some acoustic tiles in the basement and honestly a few other things like ceilings fans etc...
Please call us if you need any help.
What exactly is that we do? We provide a little help for a little while for a lot of things. From home improvements & home repairs, to moving services, handyman help, exterior house painting and more.

Don't let the title mislead you...
We were hired to do several things for the condo owner (The Punch List Part II) that included installing three (3) new toilets and replacing the tile in one bathroom.
Turns out the $3.98 wax ring in toilet # 3 lived out it's life & then some (picture one) causing havoc in the kitchen downstairs (picture # 2). What a mess...we had to replace the subfloors (yes, there were two 3/4" sheets of plywood).
If you start seeing leaks at the base of your toilet or spots on the ceiling drywall, consider replacing the wax ring.

We were fortunate to be asked to redo the half bath downstairs.
We repaired some drywall above the window and on the bottom.
We installed new tile floor, vanity, mirror, and toilet. In addition, we also painted the walls and ceiling and replaced the old base boards with new and added 1/4" shoe molding.
Yes, we're appreciative of the opportunity.
