Seeking a Better Bathroom Remodeling Estimate, San Antonio Clients Aim Too Low

Tue, Jul 31, 2012

When trying to find the best bathroom remodeling estimate, San Antonio homeowners often approach unofficial contractors. The unlicensed, uninsured worker has a history of shoddy work and doesn't provide many costly follow-up services clients need. In doing so, consumers who are trying to save money may wind up costing themselves a fortune.

Common Bathroom Remodeling Jobs

Converting a tub to a shower remains one of the most frequently updated areas of the bathroom, but all families today are looking for practical ways to increase the space and storage. Walk-in tubs help aging clients get more enjoyment from their homes. Double-sided showers and multiple showerheads add to the comfort found in modern bathrooms.

Easy ways to update and save include switching out hardware, small countertops and toilets. A new faucet can bring a whole new atmosphere to your bathroom, aiding to a sense of relaxation or high style. A good designer can help you get the feeling you want at the budget you can afford. The same might not be true of a jack of all trades who says he can install that faucet.

When Looking for a Bathroom Remodeling Estimate, San Antonio Homeowners Should Go to the Pros

Working with licensed contractors has benefits that make up for the additional expenses. Licensed, insured remodelers provide design, prep and clean-up services that others may excuse as pricey extras. Depending on your time and ability, this is work you may have to pay someone else to perform.

Licensing and insurance also tells you the contractor knows how to do a satisfactory job and cares about protecting your assets in case of an accident. People who go through those steps often care more about getting a quality reference. When in doubt, however, it's appropriate to ask about former customers.

Most contractors, big or small, will offer to give you an estimate. Some may insist on seeing your home in person. Others will be happy to work off your measurements. It's important to realize that no one is tied to an estimate and costs for bathroom remodeling easily runs over budget. For those seeking a fair bathroom remodeling estimate, San Antonio is home to many qualified, licensed contractors who fit the bill.

I am thrilled with the complete master bath remodel that Alain & his incredible crew from Shaw recently completed in my home. It was a great experience from start to finish. This company truly works as a team, communication channels are all open. Even when a hiccup occurred…they addressed it immediately & moved forward. The crew was professional & positive…really a pleasure to have them in my home. Alain went above & beyond in every aspect including making sure I was not simply satisfied with the work but truly happy. I also want to thank his crew member Sammy. He did an exceptional job & really kept the work site clean every day. I will absolutely use Shaw again for future projects.

Our kitchen remodel took 8 weeks to complete. Salvador and his crew worked hard. They were knowledgeable and professional, as well as, friendly throughout the process. I had a special request for the color of my cabinets. Salvador got it done. They are beautiful and unique. I was always able to reach Salvador at anytime and he always took care of the situation. The office staff was so helpful, especially in the selection process.. Everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Remodeling, the office staff, Salvador and crew for your remodeling needs, big or small. We will definitely call them again.

Shaw Co. Remodeling. We just did a bath/shower remodel with Shaw and are not only pleased with the results but with the degree of communication with Shaw reps and the subcontractors. You could tell they are all very experienced, not anyone’s first rodeo. Recommended.

Had great interactions from beginning to end of our master bathroom remodel project. Jordan and Audrey did a tremendous job helping get us started and walking us through all the details. Anthony Martinez and his crew came in and took care of the demo and remodel quickly, we’re attentive when discussing the project, and helped quickly correct any minor issues that arose. Anthony was always quick to reply to calls and texts, and he did a great job helping to make sure the project continued to move along in a timely manner. We are super happy with our remodeled master bathroom and the services provided by the folks at Shaw!

Shaw Remodeling was extremely professional in their execution of our master bathroom remodel this year. They made great suggestions in the showroom and carried our choices into the design and completion of the project. The workmanship was very good and the project was completed in the timeframe as promised. I will be using them again!

Alain and his crew were great. Hard working through this heat outside. Very conscious about the area they were not working in to keep clean. Great job painting brick, siding and trim with different shades. Very professional in their execution of the contract. Would definitely contract them for any future work. Thanks again.

“On time and on budget” Magic words to any homeowner’s ears. Shaw Remodeling just completed our shower/tub conversion to a walk in shower, and we are very pleased. We signed our contract on a Monday, and Anthony was at our house Thursday to begin the project. He and his team were very professional, diligently working to complete each phase of the project in a timely manner. Brittany was not only helpful in the showroom with selections, but she also was very responsive to additional questions on design that I had throughout the project. All in all, this project was easier than I had anticipated due to Anthony’s continued communication and the quality of work done.

Shaw remodeling did an excellent job on our master bathroom. Clay was always concerned that we were satisfied with their work. When they tell you they are not finished until you are 100% happy THEY MEAN IT! I want to thank Clay for all his hard work on the new door it was a bit difficult to install. Everyone mentions the beautiful door. Special thanks to Jordan for suggesting the accent wall behind the vanity also a favorite of all. Brittany made is so easy helping us with the design. Thank you to Nancy and the Shaw family who sent me flowers while I was very ill during the remodel.

We had a wonderful master bath renovation experience. They completed the job within the time frame they quoted. Anthony was a great project manager and communicated with me every day so I would know what to expect and at what time the workers would arrive. I found him to be an excellent representative for the company. Christopher was always pleasant and listened to and addressed any concerns I might have had. He is also a wonderful company representative. Nancy was pleasant and always kept me informed. Shaw Company Remodeling is lucky to have these 3 people working for them. This was NOT one of those nightmare renovations you hear about with others who say they can do it cheaper. I would highly recommend this company and do business with them again.

To the owners and management of Shaw, We wanted you all to know how pleased we are with the results of our recent bathroom tub to shower conversion. It turned out beautiful, exactly the way we had hoped. Your staff was top notch! From start to finish every person involved was professional, on time or early and friendly. In addition, we were impressed with how much care they took in keeping our home clean throughout the whole process. We realized after the job was finished that they had actually wiped down the bathroom to remove and left over dust... Nice job on hiring great help! Thank you again. Looking forward to seeing you again this week to measure and install cabinets in our laundry room and master bath!

We have used several remodeling companies through the years ending up with substandard work. So glad to have found Shaw! We will never use anyone else! With the way most companies just want to take your money and run, it's nice to find someone with a great work ethic! They really care about their clients and the quality of their work. Thanks Shaw!

Brittany, helped me make my selections, Nancy held my hand, Patrick planned and priced the job, and Chris and Anthony brought my ideas to fruition! It took all of the above to bring me my perfect kitchen and bath remodel. This was my second kitchen remodel and it went very well. I was contacted daily, site was cleaned daily, and workers present daily. I had 8 project changes and each was addressed respectfully and most of all happily! They are a 5 star company with 5star people!

We live with the work done by your team. Everyday we can enjoy the results. Through hail and high water, tile delays, it is an accomplishment all around. I appreciate the generosity of explaining why this and that is done. Our letters are intended to show our thanks. Any bonus was well deserved/earned by the team. Be proud of the work done, as we are in showing it off.

We hired Shaw Co to redo our shower. We had previously received quotes from two other shower companies but we felt they were being less than honest with us and were pricier than they needed to be. Shout out to Patrick and Fernando, Jr!

These guys at Shaw are great: they'll do what they say they're going to do, and they do it on time. For the next project, they're at the top of the list.
