Project Description

This home had its original, builder basic bathroom that was sorely in need of an update. The small space lacked functional storage and appeared dated.

Bathroom remodel goals and challenges

  • We wanted to modernize this space and give it a clean, fresh appearance.
  • The laundry closet was located inside this bathroom and was not being moved, but we wanted to create a more functional work area within the available space.

Remodeling solutions

  • We began by removing the one-piece fiberglass tub and shower unit, the vanity and sink, and existing vinyl flooring.
  • We added a new bathtub and shower and tiled all the way up to the ceiling with subway tile to make the space feel larger and to eliminate mildew build-up.
  • A graciously sized white vanity with smooth shaker doors and functional drawer and door space was topped with granite that mimics the look of marble.
  • A striking new tile floor replaced the vinyl.
  • We replaced lights and the exhaust fan with new, more efficient fixtures.
  • In the laundry room, we replaced two open shelves with solid cabinets so that supplies could be organized and tucked away behind closed doors. We also added an overhead light and replaced vented louvered doors with more functional and attractive doors. To increase efficiency, we rerouted and repaired the dryer vent.
  • While we were onsite, we replaced the home’s rear sliding glass door and a utility door, both of which had rot issues.
  • From start to finish, this project took 8 weeks to complete and resulted in a beautiful, functional bathroom.
Once our project got started, work progressed efficiently and quality and workmanship were outstanding. Most importantly, communication was excellent throughout the project. We would highly recommend Palmer Custom Builders and plan to use them again for our next project.

The house looks completely different on the outside. More vibrant, improved exterior and interior. Neighbors notice the change and compliment the work. Driving up to it feels better since the house looks so much better…I’d absolutely recommend PCB.
M. Melendez, Exterior renovations
We would definitely recommend Palmer Custom Builders. The work was done quickly, efficiently, and completed to my expectations. All the workers who came into my home were polite, kept my house as clean as possible, and were very particular with the work they performed.
D. Pitsos, Shower renovation
I would recommend Gary Palmer and Palmer Custom Builders to anyone! I found him on the web when looking specifically for NARI certified remodelers. When I spoke with him and described what we wanted, I immediately felt comfortable with him. His crews are great guys and very pleasant to work with. They come in, clean up after themselves and even offered to vacuum. I never felt any compunction about having them in our home or leaving them alone in our home when they were doing work. We are very happy with the results!

We were so satisfied with Gary’s work on our kitchen remodel, we knew we could trust him with a large renovation project. We’ve been very happy with the quality of work and the attention to detail.

Thank you for your fine efforts in our recent project to upgrade and repair the exterior of our home. At 20 years old, several problems had developed, which required much creativity and a broad array of trades and skills to complete the tasks at hand. Everything has been completed to our total satisfaction.
