    Shower and Bathtub Installation or Replacement
    Verified Review
    I am so glad that we chose this contractor for some renovations to our bathroom! We needed the shower and the flooring replaced-- the shower tile on the floor had been coming apart and the whole thing was badly done in the first place, as we'd continued to discover over the few years since we moved in. Ron and his crew did an outstanding job of replacing the bathroom floor and shower. Not only that-- when the demolition revealed some alarming leakage through the shower wall and subsequent rot in the framing around the shower, Ron notified me immediately and held up the work until I could contact our Homeowners' Insurance rep, have all the necessary inspections done and obtain expert clearance to continue with the renovation-- we were lucky on that, as there was no exterior structural damage. I called Ron back and told him we could proceed, and he resumed work immediately. His crew removed all the damaged material, replaced it with rock-solid framing and new insulation and then proceeded to build a stunning new shower to our specifications. They were fully responsive to our input, clearly explained what could or could not be done within budget and deferred to our preferences wherever possible. Their punctuality was excellent; work started right on time and continued all day at an energetic pace and without interruption. The finished job is just beautiful. All of the tile is perfectly cut and expertly laid, right down to the flawless centering and framing of the soap niche that was built exactly as I requested. The floor is smooth and even and feels so good underfoot! The price for all of this was more than reasonable-- significantly less than other contractors had projected, even with the extra work of rebuilding the framing. I would recommend this contractor to anyone who has a bathroom they want to beautify.

    We are so pleased with our new flooring! Ron and his team were efficient and worked within our budget to give us the floors we always wanted! We live in a 2nd story condo, and weren't sure the best options for soundproofing. Ron is very knowledgeable, and helped us determine the best flooring for our needs. His team had the whole place done within 2 days; I would have been a single day, but we did require some leveling to the subfloor, which he was upfront about from the very beginning, so we weren't surprise with the news/extra cost. It was well worth it -- and we could not be more pleased with the service and quality of work we received from Ron and his team! Should we replace any other flooring in our home, we will certainly contact Consolidated Home Improvements to perform the work!

    OUTSTANDING WORKMANSHIP
    From the onset, Ron and his crew were very efficient and professional. We were given a timeframe for completion and it was completed ahead of schedule without cutting any corners. We in fact addded another item and it was completed within the original timeframe. We are very pleased.

    Work done as requested and within the time frame promised.
    The guys put in new hardwood floors. They were professional from the estimate to the completion. They took the time to level areas that were off and accommodate some of our last minute requests. A bit pricey, but so far, I think it was worth it.

    Ron and his crew did a great job installing 800sqft of 12x24 tile with new baseboards in our house. We were worried that the 12x24 tile would cause issues with the small hallways and closets. Ron had it all covered! We now have 800sqft of straight, level tile with no lippage between pieces. You want you tile done right by a pro? Want some one that understands this isn't just a job and it's your home? You need to call Ron!

    I hired Consolidated Home Improvement to: re-do all the floors in my home, remove a bathtub and make one large shower, install new commodes and new vanities in my bathrooms. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Consolidated and the staff. They were on time, were pleasant, trustworthy, and honest. We ran into a couple of problems but these were handled promptly and professionally. Mr. LaDue kept the communications open and was always accessible. Many thanks for a superb job very well done!!!

    We had the carpet removed and wood laminate installed in a three thousand sq. ft. house. Ron's crew came in on the Monday of Thanksgiving week and completed the job that Wednesday before noon. I had just enough time to reorganize all the furniture around on my new floors before family came in. his crew were all very respectful and top notch. I will definitely recommend them to all of Jacksonville Fl. I know I will be using Mr. LaDue and his crew again.

    I was in the middle of a bathroom remodel going from a tub to a shower. I had knee surgery and was unable to complete. Ron finished the job by installing the Schluter®-Systems floor and then tiled the entire shower area and the bathroom floor. Outstanding job!!! Great workers that are very detailed. Thanks Ron!

    This was my second experience with Consolidated Home Improvements. The new floors were installed by Ron's excellent crew and I couldn't have asked for a more professional installation.
  • James C. Nov 10, 2015
    I had Ron's team take up my damaged hardwood floor and install wood looking porcelain tile. Fantastic job. His team was extremely professional. I have had bad luck in the past with contractors hiring handymen to do the job. Not the case here! These guys are very skilled and professional. And the advice I got from Ron was spot on with tile placement. Looks fabulous! Thanks Ron!!!

    If you want confidence that your new floor will get installed beautifully, call Ron LaDue! These guys are excellent at what they do! You can trust them with your flooring job. They are skilled installers and really know what they are doing, why they are doing it and how to do it right. We had a big job that included installing 1000 sq ft of hardwood floor and 300 sq foot of 20x20 inch porcelain tile. It had to be done right. Brian did a great job with our fireplace too and the entire crew took its time to try and get everything perfect. Mikey and Thomas worked with Brian and made sure the floors were level and everything was finished out to our satisfaction. The team was polite and professional in every way. They also seemed to enjoy what they do. My wife and I were very happy with the results. We highly recommend Consolidated Home Improvements.

    We could not have had a better experience! Ron was very responsive and easy to reach via text and email. He and his team did an amazing job on our shower as well as our bathroom and bedroom floor. The job was done in the designated time and the price was the most reasonable of any contractor we had considered. I would recommend him to anyone for tile work that needed to be done.

    I cannot say enough good things about Ron and his awesome tile installer Brian. They were professional and honest through the whole process. Brian was on time every day and worked harder than most people ever will in their life. Brian did an amazing job with our bathroom project - best tile work I've ever seen. Even helped us fix some issue from prior contractors including low spots in the linear shower pan slope. Would strongly recommend Ron's team AND will definitely be hiring them for our other bathroom! Very pleased. :)

    Ron and his crew are fantastic! They installed new floors in my bedrooms and I could not be happier. Ron responds so promptly and addressed all my questions that arose during the process. During installation, they were perfectionists and made sure that there were not any shortcuts taken. Best in town!
  • Marte B. Sep 10, 2015
    We just had 1500+ sq. ft of engineered hardwood flooring installed throughout our downstairs by Ron LaDue's dream team at Consolidated Home ... Mike, Mikey and Brian. Mike at the helm was masterful in knowing exactly what to do with our 7-1/2" boards and showed genuine care and knowledge about keeping an exceptionally clean work area due to my asthma (our carpet was over 20 years old, but the house was spotless when they left each day). Mikey was like the Energizer bunny and seemed to work non-stop all day long. Brian was professional and courteous when answering my husband's numerous questions on how to do the installation on our stairs (a project he wants to do with his 88-year old Dad) even though it must've slowed the work flow for a bit. The guys were punctual, sweet, accommodating and do excellent work. Did I mention how amazing the floors look? There was one board that was noisy when stepping on it, but Ron fixed it with a glue syringe and 48 hours later, per his instructions, it is now okay to walk on with no creaking at all! Problem solved. Would definitely use this crew again. In fact, Mike said they do bathroom work and that will be our next project in 2016. Be expecting a call, guys! Thanks so much for all your hard work!!

    Consolidated Home Improvements installed about 2000 sq ft of wood in our home, including stairs and closets. Ron and his team are honest, professional, kind, and his crew does amazing work. We had a rather complicated situation. The entire team was understanding, patient, and knowledgable. My daughter has severe allergies and Ron's team was accommodating and careful as they worked. Not only that, but they even went above and beyond to help us when the trim we ordered didn't match the wood. All pros, no cons. We only wish he did more than flooring and back splashes. We loved working with him. Thank you!
  • George And Julie L. Jun 16, 2015
    We employed Consolidated Home Improvements, Inc. (Ron Ladue) to install the hardwood floors, ceramic floor tiles, Travertine tile in 3 bathrooms, carpeting and kitchen backsplash in our new home on Amelia Island. We could not be happier with the results. Ron has completed three other projects for us over the past few years, all to our complete satisfaction, so we did not hesitate to engage him for our new home. Ron's pricing was competitive and more importantly we could depend on him to do the job right. Ron's craftsmen were courteous and accommodated our requests. In short Consolidated Home Improvements, Inc. did a great job, on time and on budget. Ron is definitely our go to guy when we need his expertise. Thank you Ron.

    With a very large, yet staged remodeling job, Ron and the excellent team at Consolidated Home Improvements have completed nearly 2,000 sf of hardwood floor installation. The floors look beautiful - with no mess, no waste, no fuss. They have been very willing to also work around our needs to do the work in stages and deal with massive floor leveling issues. They have met the challenges flawlessly - with more work ahead for them from the Mitchell household!

    Ron and his crew installed plank tile flooring downstairs in our living room, laundry room, hallway and half bath. Ron also installed a new vanity and toilet in the half bath. The guys worked hard and stayed late to finish the job in a timely manner. Ron even came by himself on his Sunday afternoon to finish with the vanity install and to make sure that the plumbing was correct. But most of all they did a very beautiful job! We will definitely be using Consolidated Home Improvements for a future project, we are already planning it with Ron now.

    We had a baby on the way so we needed to get the work done at our house in short order. Ron worked with us to prioritize the work at our house into his busy schedule. Ron got the work done before the baby got here and the workmanship was excellent. You could not slip a piece of paper between any of the miters. Ron also worked with us to best select the flooring to replace and make best use of our limited budget. Ron also recommended a flooring supplier who was excellent to work with and helped us select the perfect stone to redo our fireplace. I would recommend Ron for any flooring or other general home improvement needs.

    Ron is a busy guy and rightly so. The hardest part was fitting into his schedule. His prices were the best, and the work his crew did far exceeded any expectation we had. Our house is a flooring installation challenge with several levels and many angles in the rooms. We are so very pleased with the final results. WOW! They put in a floating click bamboo floor for us with a cork underlayment. Since the floating floor cannot go on the stairs, they used a matching tongue and groove which flawlessly seamed to the floating floor at the landing. Ron proved to be of very high integrity, which is a quality we certainly want in anyone working in our home. We highly recommend Ron and his company, Consolidated Home Improvements. We are thrilled to find a contractor we are comfortable calling for future projects.
