We've been enjoying our renovated condo for close to a year now, so it's about time to write a review. Anything that can go wrong usually does so during the first year, and I'm pleased to be able to say that everything's in good order. That hasn't been my experience with previous contractors. Coordinated Kitchen & Bath does excellent work and my husband and I are happy with our new home.
There were a number of challenges working in our building and CKB tackled them successfully. It an older building (1954) and our suite is on the top floor penthouse. The elevator is not large and it stops at the floor below the penthouse, so everything has to be hauled up a flight of stairs to our suite. The building's construction, while solid, presented some surprises when walls, ceiling and floors were opened up to reveal the 1950s plumbing and electrical, among other things. All of these issues were corrected by CKB to the satisfaction of the City of Vancouver Building Inspector.
They also installed temporary protective coverings on the floors of the common areas of our building and inside the elevator, to minimize the possibility of damaging anything. Our building's caretaker commented to me that CKB was very careful when they were working in our building. They did not leave a mess in the common areas and, unlike as has happened in other nearby buildings, they didn't inflict damage. CKB is professional, courteous and conscientious - I didn't hesitate to recommend them to my neighbours in the building, two of whom had CKB renovate their suites during the past year.
So now we have functional, stylish and worry free kitchen and bathrooms. Plus, they recommended a hardwood floor refinishing company who made the 1950s maple floors look new. Mike, the Project Manager, was easy to work with and suggested several ideas that turned out to be ideal. If I had this renovation to do over again, I would again choose Coordinated Kitchen & Bath.
