Bathroom Remodel Lakewood Ohio by Remodel Me Today 3-21-13

Bathroom Remodel Lakewood Ohio

This bathroom remodel and renovation project was done for Tim and Karen S of Lakewood, Ohio.  This home, originally built in 1923  using construction techniques typical with that era using lath and plaster.  The room was tested for lead prior to beginning and found to be lead free by our EPA certified tester.  The room was then gutted to the studs and all debris was hauled away to dump site.


We then began systematically putting the room back together.  We began by  installing a new exhaust fan with containing a light and heat option.  All exterior walls and ceiling had no insulation in them.  We added an R-19 insulation throughout to improve overall efficiency of the bathroom.  After the insulation was installed we then covered it with a moisture/vapor barrier to eliminate any water infiltration from the shower tile area.


The drywall was then hung finished and painted.  New trim was installed and painted.  Then the room was tiled to the clients specifications using 12×12 tiles on the floor area and 8×20 tiles used on the walls.  We also used glass tiles as an accent all the way around the room and a beautiful tile chair rail above the glass treatment.  A custom nook was built for the client to place bath essentials in as well.

At the beginning of the project our client informed us that his soil stack in the basement was also leaking.  Through our network of professional tradesmen we contacted one of our associate plumbers and had them address the cracked stack in the basement.

    I still can’t believe how beautiful and functional our bathroom is now. Remodel Me Today was one of 4 people we contacted for our project. Remodel Me Today was not only affordable but they showed us the utmost respect from the time of our first meeting till the end of the project. They listened to our needs and provided us a quote in a timely manner. His team was always early to the job-site and ready to go. Remodel Me Today didn’t use high pressure sales tactics as one of the vendors contacted tried to do and they didn’t use any scare tactics as another vendor tried. We chose Remodel Me Today since they had experience with older Lakewood Homes. I found out about them while searching websites that listed contractors familiar with Lakewood properties. I was impressed with one of the other Lakewood bathrooms that he featured on the site. Brian also helped us source our tile, fixtures, and a reliable plumber. His plumber did a terrific job installing new ball valves, a new hot water tank, and repaired the 90 year old cracked stack. I suggest you contact Remodel Me Today for any future projects you may have. I will be using them again in the future.
