    Remodel of master bathroom
    I had a bathroom with a shower in which tiles were falling off the shower walls. There was also damage to the wall under the tiles and also the floor. Bruce and his guy did a complete remodel, replaced tiles on wall and floor, redid the walls, removed old medicene cabinet and vanity and installed new ones, installed extra outlets, new fan etc. His work is first rate and wife and I are very happy. We want Bruce to do our second bathroom!

    Bruce and his people did a complete gut of our only bathroom. The job was done on time, and at budget. I had no concerns with Bruce or his people being in my home.

    Bruce was fun to work with. I looked forward to seeing his boys everyday during the project. The would great me with a smile and a hardy good morning! However, they weren't just kind, their workmanship is also pretty special. They transformed my worn kitchen into my favorite room of the house. Just gorgeous!

  • Marcus S. Feb 11, 2016
    The Genesis group lead by Bruce did a great job on my man cave! They helped to use the space wisely and worked through some interesting challenges. Now that it's furnished, the basement is a great "guy" hang out yet, the family can enjoy it as well. Thanks Bruce!
    Bruce F. Feb 11, 2016

    Thanks Marcus. It was a fun project. Only thing missing was installing a urinal in the bathroom.

  • Hilary V. Feb 10, 2016
    I had 5 light fixtures replaced and it was a great experience.Bruce and Ron were efficient, friendly, accommodating and quick! Would definitely have them back for various projects!

    Bruce and his team at Genesis did a great job in freshening up my aging parents home. Light carpentry and trim work, removing wallpaper, painting, building out a new bathroom on the first floor so they don't have to climb stairs among other projects to make it safer and more livable for them. I would recommend them for this type of work for others.
    Bruce F. Jan 27, 2016

    Thank you Mark! It was a pleasure working with you and your family!

  • James P. Jan 26, 2016
    Bruce did a couple of jobs for me: replacing a cracked bathroom floor and a full bathroom remodel. Both jobs were well done and completed for a bit less than estimated. Even though I could not be around to supervise directly, he kept me abreast of any issues uncovered and always gave me options. Errors were fixed quickly with no complaints. I have received nothing but compliments from friends and family on the full bathroom remodel. I would not hesitate in using his services again.
    Bruce F. Jan 27, 2016

    Thank you Jim! I am happy to serve you. Your downstairs bathroom looks great and I am happy we were able to repair the floor in the master bath without tearing out the entire bathroom.

  • Christy P. Jan 26, 2016
    Bruce and his team are the best! We had a bathroom remodel done by Bruce. Though we had some ideas, Bruce assisted with bringing in fresh thoughts that pulled the whole thing together. The finished project is beautiful! I'd love to have you all come over and see it! Bruce and his crew were on time, professional, budget conscious and just a good group of hard workers! I will definitely use him again! You should too!!!

    Bruce and his team remodel our laundry room and kitchen. They did an outstanding job. They installed a stainless steel farmhouse sink and all of the other appliances. We are extremely please with the work and professionalism of Bruce and his staff.

    We had our basement finished by Bruce and initially we were happy with the job. The problems started when Bruce under estimated the number of studs by 185 pieces and drywall by 30 sheets. The drywallers he contracted were substandard and did a poor job drywalling and sanding. In addition we had ordered special order tile for our bathroom based on his measurements and then we're told in the middle of the tiling that there wouldn't be enough. This was another miscalculation. We had to order more tile and then after we placed the order it turned out that we did not need to. We ordered hollow core doors and got and were charged for solid core. Many decisions were made without communication with us. The icing on the cake was the paint job. We asked if he would paint for us and he said yes. We anticipated that there would be an up charge for this service. The painting was the most horrible job we had ever seen. After numerous discussions there were 3 painters in and Bruce said we expected a $3500 plus paint job and we weren't being charge that. We would have either paid the additional for a professional paint job or hired a painter ourselves. In addition, his last painter got paint on our brand new carpet. We ended up hiring a painter afterwards to correct all the mistakes that were made so in the long run it cost us over $5000 to have the basement painted. Keep in mind also that Bruce does not like special orders. He wants you to buy stock merchandise so that he can keep moving. It doesn't matter that this is your space and you have to live in it. We ended up putting a stop payment on the final check because the punch list items he did not show up for when he said he would and there was too much that needed to be fixed to warrant a final payment. We ultimately paid him so the work would get done, but it was done mediocre at best. The relationship ended badly and I would not use or recommend him again. He cost us more money in the long run to repair mistakes that he made.

    We needed to remodel a bathroom, which had not been touched in 35 years and included a leaky toilet leading to a damaged floor. We sought bids on Home Advisor. Two independent contractors responded in addition to Sears. I met with each to describe the project’s goals, namely 1) to repair the damaged floor, 2) to ensure no further leaks from any pipes or the toilet, and 3) to remodel and update the shower, vanity, floor tile and walls. We were really impressed with Bruce Filipiak of Genesis Construction from the very first meeting. It was clear that he understood the scope of the project and had the experience to do the work, while cautioning that the extent of the exact damage was unknown until they floor could be removed. We met with Bruce at least twice more BEFORE we signed any papers – he was willing to advise us as we delved into the details of designing our new bathroom. After resolving all initial issues we signed the contract with Bruce and looked forward to getting started. We expanded the scope of the project a few times on our own and a couple times on Bruce’s advice. For example, we decided that we also wanted to replace an unrelated exterior door and Bruce accommodated that request. We also decided we wanted a built in the wall shelf in the shower, and again Bruce told us he could do it. Bruce agreed to receive the shipment from Menards at our house. Bruce advised us on the potential additional costs when necessary. He found a couple electrical wiring issues that he fixed as well Once the job was started, Genesis Construction worked clean. The downstairs floor path was taped down to protect it, plastic sheeting was put up to minimize dust spread, and the stairway carpet was covered during the workday. Once the bathroom floor was removed Bruce let us know what damage had to be repaired and preceded to fix it. Everyday we marveled at the progress. They started when they said they would and the project finished in a reasonable time. It looks beautiful! When we sat down to settle up at the end of the job, Bruce produced receipts for everything purchased to accomplish the job. We are very happy with not only the work Genesis Construction performed, but also the way he helped us through the process, and letting us know what decisions and choices we needed to make. We definitely recommend Genesis Construction and Bruce Filipiak.

    After receiving bids from a several companies for a large deck project including converting a large window to a sliding glass door, I contracted with Genesis. Genesis completed the project on time and on budget. More than that, Bruce and his team exhibited a level of professionalism that is hard to find. Not only were they flexible and responsive during the process, Bruce demonstrated a commitment to making sure my wife and I were 100% satisfied with the job. In addition, Bruce had two other gentlemen with him throughout, and they were friendly and knowledgeable. They even put up with my 2 year old telling them about different shapes he saw. All told, I cannot recommend them more highly. I will utilize their services in the future and will recommend them to friends and family alike.

    Thank you for the nice comments Matt. I am looking forward to helping you with your bathroom renovation soon.

    Very unsatisfied with work. He installed tile that was not straight or flush and I told him before the adhesive was set but still did not fix. He installed dry wall the bad and his taping of the seams were bad. I paid him just to have him go away and I have hired someone else to come in and fix the postulation. It will cost me about double but it will be done correctly.
    Bruce F. Jul 29, 2015

    I am sorry that you are not satisfied. We make every effort to satisfy each customer we have the privilege of doing business with. We stand behind our workmanship with a 90 day warranty for all the labor provided. When we find areas that we can improve upon, we do so. Home improvement projects can have unexpected situations where we don’t have control. We brought to your attention that some of the materials you selected presented issues that were not expected and we tried our best to accommodate. In this case the hostile attitude toward me, my crew and the supplier made all efforts to help resolve your concerns for this project more than challenging. We made every effort to address your concerns with viable solutions and explanations. You rejected our offer and in the end, the job was completed and you short paid the invoice. My business is built on honesty & integrity and I will always do the right thing for my business and the customers we serve.

    I worked with him and he didn't finish his job and he threatened me by saying if didn't pay him for the job he didn't do he would put a lean on my place. He is honestly the worst most inexperienced contractor in the history of contractors
    Bruce F. Apr 5, 2015

    I am sorry you feel this way Steven. I went far and above the contract to serve you. I was timely and added numerous other jobs to the list at your request. You simply fail to understand that all this additional work costs extra money and you refuse to pay for this extra work....and you choose to defame my reputation on top of all your misunderstanding. If you pay me for the work I will finish the extra jobs you ask for.

    Hi Mathew, Thank you for the nice comments. The burst pipe and subsequent water damage resulted in quite a mess. I was happy to help you get your home back in order and hope you found it to be at least or better than it was before the loss.

    Bruce installed a garbage disposal that my husband had purchased and has not had the time to install. He arrived close to the time expected, gave me a bit of background on his company and got to work. He was professional, efficient and neat. My husband is also happy with the work and the fair price. Plan to call Genesis Services again.

    Hi Scott, Thank you for the review. I look forward to working with you again.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Since every home and every project is unique it can be difficult to quote standard rates and fees. We like to look at every project and provide a quote with options to make it as affordable as possible. We will do our best to meet or exceed expectations at a fair and reasonable price and get the job done in a time frame that is reasonable.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We like to get to meet with our customers to get a better idea of the project at hand and we do our best to learn what the expectations are. This often requires an on-site in person visit. We will take notes and measurements if necessary and we do our best to submit a detailed quote for the services needed with-in a few days. Sometimes we are able to quote a price on the spot if the work is not to involved. We back all of our work with a 90 day warranty on all labor.
