Bathroom Remodel

David recently remodeled my master bathroom. He was reliable, communicative, and professional. I could not be more thrilled with the outcome!

Tile Installation and Replacement

David and his team are very professional, experts in their field of work and very friendly. They installed my kitchen backsplash, wet bar backsplash, did some electrical work (installed LED canned lighting, added under cabinet lighting, and replaced outlets and also added some new fresh baseboards to my condo- love the new facelift all of this gave my condo! Looking forward (one day!) to remodeling my bathrooms with David’s help! Thanks for the beautiful job!

The value David provides is that he brings his experience, personal pride, and high standards to the job. This was evident in the bathroom remodel I contracted David and his team to complete. He was flexible as well when we made some design changes prior to, and during the job. And he shared his experience of what works, and what risks may happen should I decide to stick with a specific design requirement. One reason I chose David is because he is committed to using high quality materials - Schluter - which he was specifically trained. This brand costs more than the standard tract-housing bulk supply materials and the end result is a higher quality finish and higher confidence in the materials to last many years. David is also pretty good at various aspects of remodeling - shower installs and tile work specifically for my job - and he will bring in another professional for situations that require their expertise - ie electrical work. In the end, I'm very satisfied with the work that David and his team completed. The saying "You get what you pay for" rings true with David, and I am happy with the results.

Tile Installation and Replacement

David/Build It Fix It and his team was everything you'd want in someone doing a project for you. He and his team did the plumbing, fixtures and tiling of the shower and floor for our bathroom remodel. He was great at communicating options, pricing and most importantly the work done was outstanding and timely! Thank you all for your skill and would definitely recommend to others.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Most work is done by flat rate per job. Below are some pricing guidelines I use Wall tile installation for backsplash $30+/sq ft Wall tiles if using a herringbone pattern $45/sq ft Floor tile installation starts at $5sq ft over concrete. Interior painting starts $1.5sq ft walls Interior painting starts $2/sq ft ceilings (Minimums for small jobs and Discounts for larger jobs) When hourly work is performed: Handyman items $85 Electrical $110 Plumbing $125 Typical shower remodels range 6-8k Full Bathroom remodels range 10-15k Kitchen remodels 15k+

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First we need to know the scope of work. On small jobs this can be done with pics or by messaging online. For bathroom remodels we complete a brief walkthrough so we understand just what the client is wanting the completed project to be. This gives a chance to get on the same page. Next, we provide the quote, accept a deposit and schedule the dates to complete the work.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I began in construction over 20 years ago when I went to trade school. I then worked as a union carpenter framing residential homes. I moved on to working with crews that completed all aspects to of home building. In time I began working for myself remodeling, purchasing and flipping.
