One of the things to avoid in remodeling is drama. Its great for the theater, but not so much for bathroom remodeling.
Mr. A retired about a year before he called us. He spent a career in healthcare at a hospital where he was responsible for moving patients from one area to another. After retirement, he spent time on everything except his home, because when you retire, that’s what you can do!
He called USA Bath after returning home from a vacation in San Diego. He wanted to update his bathroom, but knew there would be some complexities because he lives in a condominium with neighbors to the left and right and above and below. The building access is tight and the Home Owners Association is extremely serious about protecting the quality of life for everyone living in the building, especially when a homeowner contracts for a remodel that will affect floors, walls, ceilings, plumbing, electric and more.
All that said, Mr. A needed to get his bathroom done. When he called USA Bath, we were able to provide a nicely featured bathroom which he will never need to remodel again.
Old Wall Surround:
New Wall Surround
This is a remodel we do literally every day. It is an improvement in every part of Mr. A’s bathroom. The nervous part of this was concern over getting it approved by the Home Owners association. For this approval, we had to meet a variety of standards:
Insurance naming the property as “also-insured”
Meet workspace requirements (100% of this work was done in Mr. A Living room and balcony)
Understand stack plumbing for high rise applications
Sound standards for work time and final installed product to protect neighbors
Title 24 compliance with upgrades to electric and plumbing
But the single most important event for Mr. A was when the president of the USA Bath said he would participate in the Home Owners Association meeting to obtain project approval. “It is this kind of help that makes USA Bath easy to work with,” said Mr. A.
And, the most important outcome for USA Bath is we know that Mr. A is delighted with his new bathroom, and will be forever!
