    Default I need to do a bathroom renovation

    Second floor bathroom (the kid's bathroom) needs to be renovated. Anybody have any good experiences with contractors lately?

    Add a bidet.

    That's all I've got.

    (I don't own a bidet, too poor, not Aspenite)

    Is it full renovation, or just the shower/bathtub?

    If latter, Bath Fitter and call it a day

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Omer's my tile guy and he is great: http://www.tilebystyle.com/

    He can likely put you in touch with a cabinetry or glass person if you require one.

    edit:

    most recent bathroom tile job he did for us. Beauty is of course in the eye of the beholder, but from a technical perspective, his work is extremely high quality and he always puts in the prep time to ensure a good result. He insisted on hammering up my foundation just to centre the shower drain for this job. Heart of gold and his team works freakin' hard.

    Enrich!

    Dave was good. I think he just needed some time off social media.
    Helped me a few times with diy tile advice.

    @C_Dave45 is the famed "Dave"; I've never met him personally but he always seemed to know his stuff.

    Honestly, tiling seems like a tough trade; beyond the obvious physical challenges of hauling heavy material around, SO much of the end product's quality is dictated by the prep work.

    I was talking to Dave the tile guy. He did @A790 's bathroom recently. Here's the work link. No facebook account and link still works.
    That shower is really nice I will admit, pretty jealous!!

    If @suntan is wanting a basic Beyond baller bathroom done, there's this one Dave did too.

    Guess you need to book him over to determine a budget and expectations.

    *disclosure, no kick backs for this, I've just seen his work over the years and it's top notch. That one outdoor tile patio he did was pretty incredible a few years ago.

    Dave does good work. Tile design and planning is a fascinating art on top of the trade of tile setting.

    The man is unhinged. I thought he was moving to South Carolina? What happened to that dream?

    Things I've learned so far:

    - Contractors love Home Depot.
    - No one wants to remove K3.

    Tile Dave and the other guy that came today are the only people so far that 100% want to remove K3. Everybody else: "Shave the door!".
