We cannot recommend Maurice highly enough - the quick answer is to use him. The long answer, about why we are so grateful we contracted with him, is below.
We reached out to Maurice to give us a quote to replace our shower pan. Maurice, of the several quotes we received, was the most expensive. He was also the most thorough, detailed, and forthcoming in his estimate of services (including immediately sharing he was licensed, bonded and insured; nobody else shared that information). Others we reached out to were quick or superficial with their estimates, and offered to keep costs small by providing services that would cover up the damage. Maurice, on the other hand, spent about 45 minutes with us, sharing what was likely causing our damage (which went beyond providing any repairs that could cover up or quickly repair our failing shower pan), and shared with us what both best and worst case scenarios would be.
Maurice, once the work started, uncovered a large amount of black mold, water damage, and pending electrical nightmares. He quickly stopped the work, reached out to both my husband and I, and did not continue to mitigate any damage until we were able to see for ourselves what he had uncovered and ascertain what our next steps would be. Throughout the entire time he worked with us, he garnered approval for any deviation from the plan; this happened with big issues and small. Furthermore, Maurice was on site and involved in the work every step of the way.
Although our job ended up being much more involved, detailed, and costly than we had anticipated (although, admittedly, we decided to do a complete bathroom remodel), I cannot tell you how grateful I am that it was. Maurice’s in-depth work and commitment to quality uncovered serious safety hazards, including black mold and electrical issues. If we went with a contractor that promised us a cheaper cover-up, we would have never known about the damage in our bathroom that could have caused us nightmares if they went unfixed.
