We obtained 3 quotes for the work. 2 quotes were all in (materials, fixtures, labor, etc) at $35K and $45K. Our quote from Carmen was for about 18.5K to cover labor and building materials. We decided to go with Carmen because we liked him and we thought that we could pick out fixtures to finish the project for much less than the other quotes we received. The end result of the project is fantastic and we're very pleased with Carmen's craftsmanship. In addition to a great finished product, Carmen was very professional, easy to communicate with and accessible. These latter points are what pleasantly surprised me about working with Carmen. We expected a good end product, but we didn't expect it to be achieved so easily and so close to the quote we received. For instance, when we had questions about the project, we would text, email or call Carmen and he would return our calls within about 24 hrs. When unexpected issues came up, as they always do in any project, Carmen charged us reasonable fees to address them. For instance, during the demo, we discovered that a previous owner had walled off a shower. Carmen stopped demolishing the space and asked us if we wanted to open up the area fully. When we said yes, he spent about 1-2 hours demolishing this extra space and charged his his hourly rate (about $50/hr). Everything was very transparent. During our bathroom remodel, we also decided to have Carmen repair our bedroom walls, which had some water damage. Carmen subbed out some of this work (like drywall). End result was great, price was reasonable and again, Carmen was just easy to work with. The last thing that I think is notable about working with Carmen is his attention to cleanliness. When we started this project, I was dreading the inevitable construction dust, but that was never an issue with Carmen. Some of the drywall subs for our bedroom left a fair bit of dust, but Carmen was always very clean. We didn't get construction dust throughout the house. He did a great job of sealing off the construction area every day to prevent the dust from going everywhere. We recommend Carmen without reservation and we'd use him again. As he was doing our bathroom/bedroom, he also completed some odd jobs for us, all of which were easy for Carmen and resulted in nice finished products.
