My wife and I hired Gaudioso Contracting In the middle of October, to update our second floor master bathroom. We own an attached, 1936, Tudor-style home. The bathroom was from the original construction and was in dire need of renovation?the catalyst being a leaky shower that damaged the kitchen ceiling below.
After about a year of research, dozens of sketches, and more than a few interviews with potential contractors, we finally hired Anthony to bring our vision to life.
Anthony?s foreman, Luis would ultimately handle the job. Luis and his team did an outstanding job and were very pleasant to work with. They were punctual, polite, and hard working. Although, not always on site, Luis was only a phone call away, and was always able to address any questions or concerns.
The job was extensive. It took 2 months, from demolition to final touches?like installing the thermostat for the radiant floor heating. The bathroom was a full gut renovation down to the studs. We went with Travertine tiling from the floor to the ceiling, a double vanity, a separate shower with glass door, a freestanding soak tub, and additional outlets. We also installed an exhaust fan, something sorely missing from our original bathroom. We added recessed lights, vanity lights and a chandelier. We installed built-in cubbies in the shower and bath areas. We built a custom linen closet with mirrored doors, and installed new entry doors and molding. We replaced our old antique wood window with a new fiberglass casement window and refurbished the framing on our stained glass, decorative window. We were very happy that we got to keep that. We thought it was a lost cause.
In our kitchen, we reset some loose tiles and repaired the ceiling, which had been damaged by the leaky shower.
I did have a few issues. One of them was that some mortar adhesive had dried on the surface of the floor tiles, which made it look rough and stained. Anthony, and Luis worked with me to resolve the problems, which I truly appreciate.
My wife and I are in love with the new bathroom!
