Basement Bar and Water Proofing Avon Ohio

This project was a custom bar creation for Mark in Avon Ohio.  The challenge for this project was that the basement was already finished and there was no existing plumbing for the wet bar area.  The closest tie in was approximately 30 feet from where the sink location was to be and was in the floor.  We opened needed to open the wall and bust into the cement floor in the furnace room to tie into the drain and water lines.  The bar was finished with a kegorater, bar fridge with 150 can capacity, granite counters and Kraftmaid cabinets.  During the opening of the wall it was discovered that the client had water infiltration coming through their poured cement walls.  We also sealed the water issue with an expanding epoxy and sealed the 1/8″ crack with top coat epoxy to eliminate this issue.    ...

Whole Home Renovation Brookpark Ohio

  This whole house renovation project was done for Mike & Cheryl R of Brookpark, Ohio.  Mike and Cheryl purchased this home as through the lenders 203k loan program.  This type of purchase allows the buyer to borrow on future value of the home in updated condition.  Once the loan closes the buyer and contractor make required improvements and then the bank approves all work and forwards funds to the contractor after completion.   The project itself entailed several days of demo and then we installed new flooring (laminate and carpet) throughout the kitchen, family room and living room as well as ceramic tile in the two bathrooms.  Additionally, the property had stress cracks throughout the home all of which were repaired and the ceilings on the lower level were all res-textured.  New cabinets in the kitchen and one of the bathrooms were also installed.  The electrical was on old screw in fuses which was upgraded to a 150 amp circuit breaker panel and GFI’s were added where needed to bring their new home in compliance with local city ordinances.              ...

Bathroom Renovation Westlake Ohio by Remodel Me Today 9-2-13

This bathroom renovation was done in Westlake, Ohio for Lynn & Steve P. They came to us looking to remove an existing fiberglass jet tub and shower surround and replace it with large walk in shower area with a bench. The unit was to be fully customized to their specifications.   Tile was picked out by Lynn and we designed the full layout and patterning of the tile chosen by Lynn. Additionally, Lynn and Steve were looking to replace all the existing cabinets and counters with a good quality cabinet and granite counter tops. The tile floor throughout the remaining space was in need of heating elements under the tile to help with the coolness of the tile and also helps to maintain even heat in the room during cold winter days. The shower was systematically assembled by first installing a 10 mil moisture barrier.  Then we placed 1/2″ cement board around the walls and installed a pre-pitch drain/tray system in the floor.  All joints were systematically sealed and then the tile was set grouted and...

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...
