They were slow to repsond to status emails once we signed up for their services. But once they finally got started their work was excellent. ONe needs to be patient with them.

Every remodeling job has it's glitches, but I lucked out with Capital Remodeling. I experienced relatively minor problems with my master bath remodel (a total tear out of 2 walls, the entire bath, and expansion of the bath and closet). Thankfully it was nothing like the horror stories that my friends had experienced with other contractors for similar work. Prior to starting the tear out, I spent several months selecting the materials that would be provided by Capital. Some of their items have limited selection options (faucets, lights etc) so I opted to buy my own which they happily installed. The price was very reasonable and about $ 12,000 less than a previous estimate last year from another well known local firm. They were flexible in allowing me to buy multiple items myself prior to starting construction but also provided a skilled crew to do the work whether, tiling, plumbing, electrical work, as well as quality toilet, tub, countertop, vanity, linen closet and tiles. The estimated time for the actual remodel was 2 weeks and it took about the equivalent of about 2.5 work weeks. The crew came every day that they were scheduled and worked long days - somtimes up to 12 hours. Supervisors made frequent visits during the construction phase. All the trash was hauled away at the end. The last 3 days of work spread out over a month largely due to my travel schedule and trying to coordinate it with the electrician to install the final vanity lights. Prior to starting construction they worked with me to plan for reusing wood flooring, doors, and towel racks. The sales person (Ed Dorsey)gave me good advice on trim tile and helped me on multiple occasions to match up selections with samples he provided. Although any major construction or remodel is disruptive I was very satisfied with the politeness, timeliness, and quality of the work. (All the inevitable dust, in spite of extensive draping, was worth it.) And my friends with the bath remodel horror stories were amazed at the final product in such a short amount of time. They plan to contract Capital on their remaining bath remodels this summer.
