Bathroom Remodel

We worked with Bert for renovation of our bathroom. He has a very professional manner, and he keeps everything in an order as the customer requested. He followed every request we have very carefully and spent time with us to understand our wishes. He is very patient and detail oriented. All our bathroom project is done according to the codes, and he was following every detail with the city. Even when problems arise, he was able to take good action to solve those problems in a timely and effective approach. Overall, he did a very good job in terms of design, quality of parts and handed our renovated bathroom in a timely manner. We will be working with him again next year for renovating our kitchen as well. I recommend Bert to anybody, who would like to have a renovation at their home.

Recently, Bert did a home renovation for us on a property we own in Alameda. He did an amazing job, better that we could have imagined. Our circumstances were a bit crazy considering the fact that we had just had a pipe in our home burst and had suffered major water damage. Despite all of this, Bert was able to help us complete a major renovation which included replacing all of our flooring, replacing or repairing things such as windows, doors, walls, and ceiling space, and completing two full bathroom renovations. Bert is an environmentalist, artist, designer and contractor all rolled into one. He is not only an amazing and thoughtful person, but he also delivers the highest quality work. Bert will carefully work with you, to collaborate and discuss your specific living or lifestyle needs, and then, he will come up with a beautiful and artistic design that considers all of your functional and budgetary needs. In our case, we didn’t have a lot of time to discuss and plan because we wanted to return our space to being livable again after a disaster, yet we were still able to achieve a completed project within a reasonable time frame, stay on budget and achieve a simply elegant aesthetic. Bert really cannot be compared to any average contractor. He is very easy to communicate with, and works very hard to achieve the best results. You will be his utmost priority as his client. One of the most impressive outcomes of our project was the reconfiguration of space we achieved in our bathroom and the final design aesthetic. Previous to the renovation, we had a large 1960s style upstairs bathroom, with a door separating our laundry unit and sink area from our toilet and shower/bath area. Bert suggested some major changes that had a huge positive impact on the project. He recommended that we replace our large, old inefficient separate washer and dryer with a stackable unit we could fit in a small closet. By doing this, we were able to knock out a wall and door that completely opened up and changed the layout of the space such that we could now fit an elegant walk-in standing shower and a completely separate copper Japanese-style soaking tub. In addition, he replaced the door that opened into the entry way of the bathroom with a Japanese style slider door, and as a result, we achieved more usable space in the bathroom, and also had more radiant light coming into our once dark hall way. In terms of the sink area, he replaced our single sink with an elegant and modern double sink custom-designed floating vanity made of quartzite on quartzite on top and with a reclaimed wood look on the drawers. The overall design of our new bathroom is truly the bathroom of our dreams, and is honestly a treasure. The space is still warm and inviting, but also healing, with a zen-like quality. One other very impressive quality of our renovation was the way he was able to help us transform our space with looking closely at details and high-quality craftsmanship in his work. In the case of our living area, he replaced the door to our veranda with an elegantly designed new glass slider, and removed the old window treatments from the inside, such that our living area now opens right into our outside space with a clear view of our garden-like terrace. The transformation simply was incredible, from dark to light, and from closed to open concept. In terms of craftsmanship, we were most impressed with Bert’s staff and how they were able to handle small details so carefully, such that the overall impact was huge. For example, the Bert’s staff was able to achieve beautiful results in our bathroom due to the high quality of their grout and tile work. In addition, they were able to repair cracked vintage tile in our fireplace that helped us to restore the appealing aspects of our 1960s vintage-like space. Furthermore, in Bert’s staff work around completing our flooring, they were able to completely replace all of our old floorboards, with more modern style and match our original paint seamlessly. As you can see, with Bert’s staff, hard work, dedication and know-how, you cannot go wrong with this choice!!!
