Miracle Method-Northwest

Early last fall my wife noticed a crack in the floor of the one-piece fiberglass shower stall in our master bath. We immediately stopped using the shower. At the time we were having our kitchen remodeled, so I asked the contractor if he could give me a ball park price on how much it would cost to replace the shower stall. The answer was $3000 - $4000. OUCH!!! A few weeks later my wife ran across an ad for Miracle Method and I gave them a call. Initially I had a bit of trouble contacting them via their web site (problem with their web contact form) and could only get a recording when calling their phone number. I did finally make contact with Jim Hudek, the owner. We made an appointment for an estimate within a week and in early November, Matt came to our home and provided an estimate of $450 to repair the crack and apply a textured "Slip Resistant Surface" (SRS) to the floor. I thought the price was a bit high and we were not in a hurry to have the repair done since we could use other shower/baths in our home. I finally called to schedule the repair in February and asked if they would still honor the quote (only good for 60 days), which they did. They were able to schedule the repair for the next week. However, the day before the scheduled repair, I got a call from Miracle Method stating that because of a family emergency with the repair tech, they would need to reschedule the repair. They were VERY apologetic and were able to schedule the repair for the next Friday. The next Friday, the repair tech was running a little late (about 30 minutes) and we received a call from the office letting us know. The Tech did show up at the new arrival time and was there for about four hours performing the repair. He did a great job and left NO mess. The crack repair involved three layers of a fiberglass mesh and resin, each layer covering a larger area over the crack. This stiffened the floor area quite a bit where the crack had formed, though the floor still has some flex there. We'll see if it holds up. There is a 5 year guarantee on the repair. The SRS is a textured finish with some type of grit in it. We chose this mainly to "hide" the crack repair since it was unlikely that the repair material would be an exact color match (white) to the rest of the stall. It's Ok, though when it gets soapy, it's still pretty slippery. Over all, I thought $450 was a bit expensive ($275 for the repair, $175 for the SRS), but it saved me a $3000 - $4000 shower stall replacement.

SHANE DID A WONDERFUL JOB! THE SHOWER PAN IS BEAUTIFUL AND THE FINISH SHOULD LAST AS LONG AS THE PAN DOES. SHANE IS VERY PERSONABLE AND OFFERED OTHER HOUSEHOLD TIPS. THE PRICE WAS RIGHT AND I WOULD DEFINITELY CALL HIM AGAIN.

It was fantastic. I called Arnie earlier in the summer to inquire about his services, he said he would get back to me once his health improved. After touching base again, he set up a time and once he arrived he got straight to work. He definitely knows his trade and has his system down. He did the shower the first day, showed me how to work around his venting fan after he left. He returned a second day to touch up the shower and then work on the tub. He was a pleasure to have in our home, interesting to chat with and respectful and clean. I will definitely contact him once we redo our master bath and want the jetted tub changed to white. He did quality work and saved us tons on remodels by giving new life to 1989 fixtures!

The job was done quickly and professionally. I wish we could have gotten more of the chemical smell out of the house after he painted but it wasn't bad after we opened the windows to air out the house that evening. I felt safe leaving Arnie with a key to the house while my wife and I were both at work. We are satisfied with his work and his prompt service.

first, I was told that two plumbers would be sent to do the job and that the cost would be $150 per hour. But only one plumber showed up for three hours and one showed up for 1 hour. clearly, two plumbers would work more quickly than 1 and reduce the number of hours/cost and when I spoke with Todd (owner/manager) about this, he said this is how they handle matters. secondly, the installation was done without following the manufacturers instructions regarding a number of steps to which Todd (owner or manager) responded that it was installed the way that they always do. So, I paid him.

Tub looks brand new! Turned out extremely well. The only hiccup was the bedroom window, needed open for equipment, was left open when he left, and air conditioner was running all day. That was minor. Overall, the experience was a good one. My daughter is very happy with the way it turned out and it saved us from having to rip out a tub and try to find another one to fit in this older home. It's not a cheap solution, but we believe this was definitely the way to solve the problem and this tub was very cruddy--finish was rough and we tried everything to get it clean...it was futile! This service made it look like a brand new tub! He was prompt, professional, and did a great job! We highly recommend the service and the service provider and would hire him again.

Lance was very prompt, courteous, and professional. He did a great job and helped us with tips and suggestions as the project moved along. He was productive and kept a clean work area. He supplied us with a daily report of materials purchased and his time. He worked for an hourly fee plus the cost of supplies. We are very pleased and would definitely use Lance again.

Dan was extremely polite & professional. He showed up right on time, brought his laptop & printer with him, & after he'd surveyed the work to be done, he entered the measurements & printed me a quote. I about choked, though, when I saw the $5100 price tag. It was a about $3000 more than I'd expected to pay for a 6x4 shower stall. When asked about alternatives he said he could have done a fiberglass insert for $4100 (again about $3000 more than expectation). I thanked him & decided to get estimates from two other companies. Both other companies quoted $1500-$1700 for the same job House Doctors quoted $5100. I'm sure they do very good work, but at that level of price inflation, they're not going to be able to demonstrate it to me.

I've used this company before in the past with great results. They were a little back logged at the time so it took about a month to get an date setup. I talked with Marlene the night before to go over options. I had some texturing on the bottom so that a floor mat would not be required and it would be safer for taking a shower. That option was about $50. The tub itself was in somewhat rough shape and had some build up of caulk and mortar. Marlene did an excellent job of cleaning and prepping before the process and after it was done it looked excellent. It truely looks new and in my opinion it looks much better than a fiberglass replacement tub. Marlene did an excellent job of caulking the tub also. The whole process was performed professionally and great care was used to protect other fixtures and clean up afterwards. There was a little bit of lingering paint smell which is to be expected, but actually it was a lot less than it was the previous time I had it done (about 2 years ago). If you close the door and run the vent or open a window it's no problem at all. I definitely recommend this company and the process they use.

Run, don't walk, away from this company! Save yourself a whole lot of trouble and choose someone else. I had great expectations from the beginning of the job. The men showed up on time and seemed ready to go to work. They even picked up some supplies on their way. However, once work began, it turned into a nightmare! They were there to hang drywall, which they did. But they did a terrible job of it. The drywall they hung wound up with cracks and creases all over it, so it will have to be re-done. The worst part, though, was that they did not protect my property during the job and the company refuses to take responsibility. I had just put in a new fiberglass bathtub less than six months ago and they did not cover it with anything to protect it during work. One guy was standing on the edge of the tub to hang drywall on the ceiling and cracked the edge of the tub. I was standing nearby when it happened and heard the loud crack and the guy said "uh oh." We both saw the damage right then. At least the worker owned up to what he did. But the owner of the company refuses to reimburse me for the damage. They also marred the finish in several places on the tub. The other worker on the two-man team was not so forth-coming, however. The next day they were back to do more work and I noticed that he came downstairs to shut the water off to the house. I didn't think anything of it at the time. I thought it was just a normal precaution. I found out after they left that the worker had damaged one of my copper supply lines to the shower and didn't tell me that there was a leak. The owner of the company, Dave Beck, will not take responsibility for that either. To top it all off, that evening I went to the basement to grab my tile saw to do some tile work and noticed that it had been stolen that same day. I had to file a police report for a stolen RotoZip saw ($100 value) and a stolen tabletop wet tile saw ($75 value). Of course, no one at Classy Craftsmen is owning up to this either. Do *not* even think of hiring this company. Learn from my misfortune, please. I am trying to get my money back right now, but who knows.

As of 12/3/2014 there has been no additional moisture noticed on the drywall in the bedroom. It is safe to say the leak has been successfully repaired. The drywall cutout and repair ended up being about 18" x 18". I would estimate the craftsman spent 4 hrs. of total onsite time for this project. If you do the math the cost of this project was over $200 per hr. The materials used where common items such as caulking, drywall compound, drywall tape and sandpaper. Their handheld credit card reader did not work so it took more time than expected for payment.

Recent Review: I was on a time crunch and they were able to provide services for next day at a price almost half of that of my other bid. The owner and the tech were courteous, responsive and professional. I would use them again.

Recent Review: They also did some work on our deck when we had some wood that rotted out and so they came back and they fixed that. The owner, he does deck cleaning, he does like paint, cleans the siding on our house and we contact him every so many years and say okay it is time for you to come clean the siding again. Their work is good and he is reliable. He is the kind of guy that if needed to be gone to work all day and he was in my house painting, I would leave him here. He is really a down to earth guy.

Recent Review: The owner answered phone, said he could repair our tub and gave us an estimate of $195. He and a co-worker arrived on time and repaired the tub in 45 minutes. When checking out their work, "wow!" was my response. I expected to see where it had been patched; it was flawless! Visually couldn't tell it had been repaired, matched color perfectly. You can feel that the texture is slightly different. Made our tub usable again -- thought we would have to spend thousands to have unit replaced. Very pleased with their company, work and price. The process created a dust residue in the bathroom, had to wipe everything down and rewash exposed clean towels. Would recommend putting away clean items before having the process done.

Recent Review: Exemplary in every way! Rachael in the office did a great job in explaining the entire process. She also helped me move up the job almost 30 days so my tenant could move in early. Derrick presented the contract and how the warranty worked. He completed the job flawlessly. Everything was taped off and covered to protect the flooring and other items. He explained not to touch anything for 48 hours. I waited 72. My tub is beautiful again! I am going to post the before and after pictures on my Facebook feed!

Recent Review: I worked with Custom ReBath through Home Depot. They came out to our house to perform an estimate, and gave us options for the tub replacement, wall liner, etc. The sales rep and owner were very responsive when I called with questions and concerns before and after I signed the agrrement. The tub took the predicted amount of time to manufacture, and the install went very smoothly. We love it, everything looks great!

Recent Review: Hard for me to put into words how pleased we are with the finished job, I wished we had done this years ago. Chuck's attention to detail is second to none. This was a much cleaner project than what I had expected. The 80+ year old cast iron tub looks brand new since he took the time to fill in small cracks and chips before the re-glazing. The two fiberglass units were old with no finish left and would soil easily, now they look brand new. I would recommend this process to anyone that would like to clean up an older looking bathroom.

Recent Review: I contacted Quality Bath Repair to look at a possible problem with the surface of the bathtub at this house. Since we had the house on the market we were able to give him the code to get in and he fixed the problem right away and sent us a bill. We haven’t personally meet him but he does great work and we would use him again for any future problems that we might have.

His design instincts and craftsmanship are top notch. We couldn't be happier, and wouldn't hesitate to contact him for any other renovation projects we may need!
