The Challenges

Bathroom Remodling

BATHROOM REMODELING OVERVIEW

Believe it or not, but this home was one of the very first homes built in Pleasant Hill! That being said, you can only imagine what Samuels Construction remodeled. This beautiful home needed the foundation to be completely redone, the ceiling to be lowered, and a room reduction on top of this bathroom remodel. Our team was successfully able to remodel this bathroom. Paul Samuels constructed a plan to include a brand new sliding door instead of a conventional hinged door, a new shower, new tiling, plumbing, cabinetry, and electrical. We were able to bring this home back to life!

OUR CLIENTS SAYS

Paul Samuels is your guy.

It was time to replace the claw foot tub in our very tiny, only bathroom. The tub seemed like a good idea 15 years ago when we remodeled our 100 year old farmhouse, but not anymore; we were ready for a great shower.

Paul Samuels came to our house 5 times before we had even decided to contract with him.  He brought samples of materials, lists of references and potential suppliers, asked and answered questions. We all had a clear idea of what was desired and expected before the project even began. We never felt as if he was pushing, just that he wanted us to know all the possibilities. His estimate was fair and reasonable.

Throughout the remodel, Paul was there to inspect, oversee and assure everything was done completely and done right.  He encouraged and cajoled subcontractors to deliver and meet deadlines.  More than once we were told by a subcontractor that the installation would be done “a week from Friday” only to have them come back after talking with Paul to do the install “day after tomorrow”. The Samuels Construction crew (Victor and Manuel?) was great. Skilled and efficient, leaving the job site neat and clean every day. It was a pleasure having them work in and around our home.

The project was completed before expected and we are so pleased.  Best shower ever!
As time went on, Paul pointed out some improvements that could be done for stability of the house.  Again, price was reasonable, we never felt as if it was a sales pitch, simply advice from a guy who knows (because we knew his suggestions were spot on).  That extra work was done along with the shower remodel.
No matter the size or complexity of your project, we highly suggest you give Samuels Construction a call. From a shower remodel, concrete, additions, foundation issues here is someone who can do the job for you and do it well.

We feel as if we have found someone who can do any job for us, no more searching.  And it’s great to work with someone local.  We’ll contact Paul to handle those many items on our ‘to-do’ list in the future.

Paul Samuels has been my general contractor for over 10 years. The house I own in Pleasant Hill is over 40 years old. When I bought the house, it was in serious need of remodeling- particularly in the bathroom. I interviewed six different general contractors for the job. Paul Samuels was the only contractor who submitted a proposal and estimate. I never heard from the rest. He was awarded the job because of conscientiousness, fair price, and commitment. Paul did an amazing job on the bathroom, and since then has remodeled my kitchen/dinning room area and added a laundry room. The age of my house also required some serious structural work over the years, and Paul developed an ingenuous approach for stabilizing the foundation and eliminating the potential for water damage. Paul has an uncanny ability to anticipate issues, which for my house has been invaluable. His depth of knowledge and experience, and the quality of his work is exceptional. He is a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t consider any other contractor when it comes to my home.

Paul- I appreciate the opportunity to have you as my Licensed General Contractor on the total remodel of my home. Your professionalism and expertise matched with your uncanny ability to foresee a problem before it arose saved me money, worry, stress, and headaches. During this process, I was kept informed as to what was going to happen next. You stayed within my budget and time frame. It was comforting to know that someone with your knowledge and connection had the best interest of my home in sight. It was a pleasure working with you.
