Bathroom remodeling, revisited




 A recent example of Bob’s Jobs work – a complete bathroom remodel


Before and after bathroom remodel

Before and after bathroom remodel

Our resident bathroom remodeler, Rich, recently finished up our biggest bathroom remodeling project to date, updating a bathroom located in a 4200 square foot waterfront home in the Chesapeake Beach (“Chicks Beach”) neighborhood of Virginia Beach.  You can read about another bathroom remodeling project we completed this past year by clicking on this link HERE.

The existing 9 X 9 bathroom was old, outdated and didn’t suit the million dollar waterfront property in which it was located.  Here are a few images of the old bathroom before we got the sledgehammer out:

We assigned our helper, to assist Rich during the initial demolition to make the project go faster.  It took the two of them a couple of days to get the room completely emptied.  Once the old vinyl flooring had been removed, we unfortunately discovered every homeowner’s arch enemy, water damage.  After pausing to consult with the homeowner about the problem and how it needed to be handled, we proceeded with the replacement of the affected subfloor as well as some of the rotted framing:

The homeowner selected new ceramic tiles for the floor and the walls which Rich skillfully installed.  At their request, he incorporated into the bathroom design a “water closet” (a room containing nothing but a toilet ) where he relocated the toilet.  Rich also custom designed a corner seat and a shelf for the inside of the shower:

This project took us about a month to complete.  The homeowner, who has used other contractors in the past, indicated that our labor costs were quite reasonable and that the quality of our work made it a great investment.

Could your lovely home use a complete bathroom facelift?  Call me, Jo, at Bob’s Jobs, 757-318-0484, and we will have our resident artist, Rich, create a suitable custom living space for you, too!

Many of our past clients and some of our new customers are comfortable with our work ethic and skip getting an estimate entirely.  Instead, they prefer that we show up, ready for work, making the necessary repairs or renovations on their properties.
