Q: How long does it take to do a job?
A: Each project can vary with completion times. Several things can factor into it such as, faulty products, current weather conditions, faulty previous hidden construction, termite damage, customer changes and upgrades.
Q: What makes your products unique in comparison to home improvement centers?
A: Our products are unique because, the products that we sell cannot be found in your local home center and are of better quality. For instance, the faucet lines we carry are made with ceramic valves and solid brass construction. They feature lifetime warranties on the construction and finish and offer the "no drip" technology. Our stools all have large trap ways and superior flushing mechanisms. They are all tested in house by our experts before any of them hit the sales floor. The tubs, air tubs and tub and shower units are constructed with thick acrylic quality. We sell only fine china for our stools, tubs, pedestals and sinks. We fully back the warranties of each product and unlike, the home center, where you would have to take your product back and exchange it for a working product, we take care of everything in house for you!
