Recommendations for Bathroom Renovations in Canberra?

davlom 28 June 2011 45

We are looking to do a complete bathroom renovation (not just a makeover) and don’t just want to start cold calling from the paper or phone book.

Can anyone recommend a good, reliable company or tradesman (preferably who you may have used) who can undertake the whole job – from taking out the old to completing the new (tiling, plumbing, electrical etc).

Thanks in advance!

Hi all Alex here from custom sealing services we are so amazed by the amount of great recommendations spoken out us.
I would like to take this time to thank everyone that has gone out of there way to post comments for us and show people the work.
60% of our work is via recommendation and we hope it continues.
We would also like to take this time to let people know that we are doing great special offers up to Christmas and hope everyone gets there new bathroom.
Please keep a few things in mind when you come to get your bathroom done.
If you move plumbing it adds a great deal to the price.
If you tile to the ceiling it is not to much more than half tiling and saves you ever painting the walls.
remember that the bathroom will be in service for the next 20+ yrs so pick a color that will not date.
I hope that helps you if you would like any more advice please feel free to contact us on our new number 0432275257 or alexl1@live.com.au

Lol Laurie,
We also used John at Purr-fect Bathrooms in April and were extremely satisfied with the bathroom renovation that they provided. John and his team are experienced, flexible, courteous and very organised. The whole job was finished inside two weeks for a competitive price. We are particularly pleased with the quality of the tiling work.

Hi,
I would just like to make a recommendation. I would highly recommend John and his team from Purr-fectbathrooms.com.au. They completed the renovations on our bathroom and en-suite a few months ago. I am very pleased with the results. He and his team were very professional. As a woman this was a daunting exercise for me, and John was so helpful with his advice and knowledge. The work was competed in two weeks and John and his team took a lot of stress out of this exercise for me. They were pleasant and friendly and were understanding about what I wanted. He took care of all those little things that happened along the way.
I will also be recommending John to all of my friends.
Laurie.

In the past 30 years at several abodes in Canberra I have had two kitchen renovations, 3 bathrooms and a complete internal renovation done by Bordeaux Kitchens & Bathrooms, 8 Aroura Place, Queanbeyan, phone 6299 4642.
It’s a family business and they do most of the work themselves. The contractors they use to do the other stuff are first class. If you are bereft of ideas just tell Steve what you think you need to do and he will tell you about things that can be done that you would never have thought of. He speciality is creating new storage spaces in bathrooms, kitchens and pantries.
They don’t take any shortcuts either. Pricing is what you would expect to pay for the best job available.

Hi folks. We had a great job done by a guy that was recommended to us by a workmate. His name was john from contemporary bathrooms. I believe he doesn’t advertise and relies on referrals to get work. He had great design ideas because we needed help getting it all together. He was punctual and always showed up for appointments (you’d be amazed how many don’t!) he gave us a really competitive price and didn’t charge a mark up on the tiles we chose. What really impressed us though is the finish in our bathroom. It is top class. John arranged all the other trades too like plumber and electrician. We didn’t have to worry about anything and had a beautiful new bathroom. He can be contacted on 0450781339. I don’t think he has a website.

Thanks for all the great recommendations on this post….

Looking to get a few quotes ourselves but just having trouble tracking down a working web address for Chris from Eco-seal / Canberra Tiling and Bathrooms as well as well as Alex from Custom Sealing Services….If anyone knows their web addresses, please post!

Thanks in advance!

I had our 3 bathrooms done from scratch by Anthony at ADN Builders. I am fussy and he did a fantastic job. Each stage was discussed so there was no confusion; he organised a plumber and electrician.

I love them. You are most welcome to view mine too (I live in Belconnen).

Thank you John and the friendly team for transforming my tiny 1970s “beige nightmare” into a bright and efficient bathroom/laundry. I love my large shower and improved storage.

With my budget in mind, you listened to what I needed and made great suggestions. All the work was carried out to a very high standard, with the tradies making every effort to minimise the mess and clean up as the job progressed.

When any unexpected issues arose (such as finding poorly located original pipes), I really appreciated you checking with me as to which remedy to apply.

I am very happy to recommend Purr-fect Bathrooms (0409986436) for a high quality renovation.

Hi
I have just had a bathroom renovation done by John Lanz from Purrfect Bathooms (0409986436). John and his team did an excellent job on turning a dowdy 70s bathroom into something very stylish. His price was very reasonable and I would highly recommend him.

You couldn’t go past Image Bathrooms – Paul was our main contact and couldn’t have been more helpful. His quote was very detailed and included everything we needed such as tiles, toilet, tapware etc etc. Paul was on site everyday to make sure everything ran smoothly and on time. Very professional attitude and workmanship. We are looking at doing our ensuite next and not even going to bother getting others around to price up. We were recommended by a friends work colleague. They are a little hard to find in “the book” – number is 62425445

Hi we looked at this same site (Riotact.com) and would love to say thankyou for the work we have received from Custom Sealing Services.
We had four quotes from different people when we enquired about our bathroom renovation but we chose Alex as he wanted to save us money where we wanted by re planning the bathroom on the fly but spending money where it mattered e.g shower rails and taps.
When we booked in the job with him he told us it was going to be a six week wait and was that alright.
We said that was fine and we look forward to seeing you, He rang and orginsied to come two days before he was meant to and we were fine with that.
The day the work started we were waiting for rubbish to be everywhere but it was not.
We asked the work crew if they would like to use our coffee and deck to sit on feel free, Alex responded thankyou very much but we would not use anything in your house as we like to treat your house the same as our own and I would not like cups left out or half my milk gone.
The job was amazing from first contact to the end a lot of little things you don’t think about like vanity plugs he took care of it all just asked what style I would like.
Alex contacted us every day something was not right or we would just like to know something even at 9;00 pm when I finish the gym.
The job was finished on schedule with a lot of things going wrong on many party’s but some how we are still not even sure Alex made it to work smooth.
Everything about the whole renovation was done with extreme prescience not to mention the tiller he uses Alex asked him to come from Queensland with over 30 years of tiling experience I have never seen work of that standard in magazines or anywhere.
Nothing for the whole crew was to hard and I was never charged any extras the other thing I liked about them was the fact that they would not use MDF mouldings as they said you want a quality job and we want to give it to you.
So all in all thanks for listening to my rant about them but I can not be happier and could not think of another person/crew I would recommend higher .

His price was alot lower than some other people on here that quoted it and his work was GREAT.
he fixed one load bearing wall that had a lot of rot in it for a very cheap price as “he felt bad for me as it was not to be known”
Thank you for whoever put his name up here as without you i would not have found this great tradie.

We just had our bathroom and ensuite renovated by Custom Sealing Services and are really pleased with the result. They were always very professional to deal with and nothing was ever too much trouble.

We called up John from Purr-fect Bathrooms after reading a number of positive reviews on this site. We wanted to get a whole new bathroom, ensuite and separate toilet done. We also wanted to replace the old deteriorating aluminium windows.

John came out on a Saturday and discussed our needs. We were really impressed because he actually listened to our thoughts and preferences etc. before giving us some incredibly useful tips and ideas. Soon afterward, we received John’s quote. Given the level of his knowledge, experience and the attention that he gave to us, we decided that we weren’t going to contact anyone else to get a quote.

John’s quote included a breakdown of costs for each of the rooms that we wanted done and then a list of material requirements that we would need to buy from the bathroom places. The detailed measurements on this list were incredibly helpful when buying baths and vanities etc. (I highly recommend Cameron at Renovators Depot in Fyshwick – he went beyond the call of duty for us & has superior customer service skills).

John and his team were at our house almost every day over a 3 week period. This is something that our friends were envious of because a number of them had bathroom renovations drag on for months with different contractors involved. The advantage with John and his team is that they do it all and he has his own electrician and plasterer on call. His team were like a part of the family. They were all so easy to chat with and very obliging with our numerous requests. Every morning John would chat with us and give us an update on what they would be working on. They made short work of stripping the old bathrooms out in preparation to start fresh. Any surprise along the way would not phase them and they would just adapt, problem-solve and get on with the job.

The team from Purr-fect Bathrooms also had to contend with other renovations going on at our place at the same time, including the stripping and installation of a kitchen, jack-hammering of floor tiles in living areas, and brick-sawing through walls (all with the need for frequent power outages). This didn’t bother John and he actually ended up helping us by on-the-spot quoting for additional work that pretty much needed to be done that day to do with other areas of the house.

At the end of the day it is obvious that John and his team enjoy their work. They turn up happy and the final product reflects a real pride in their work. When the shower manufacturer turned up to install our new screen, he asked us who had done our bathroom because he thought that the tiling job was of a very high quality. My only regret is that I didn’t speak with John before organising other building related work around the house because he could have done most of the other things. If we ever need any bathroom renovation work (or any renovation work for that matter) in the future, I will definitely be calling John.

I would like to comment that I was very disappointed with custom sealing services. I rang for a quote which was organised for an time convenient to both of us. I might add, that I did require taking time off to be at home for the quote but the guy did not turn up for the appointment. No phone call either to state that he was running late, etc. I tried to ring him on two occasions, even left a message but received no reply back.
Subsequently, my partner talked me into getting in contact with John from Purr-fect Bathrooms (a contact that he found). We have been very happy with his experience and work ethics. John has gone well out of his way to accommodate our needs in every respect. He finished our bathroom last week and his quality and ethics were everything that was previously discussed on this riotact site. Our bathroom start to finish took 10 days to complete and we are so happy with the outcome. He also fixed our front door which had been sticking for some time, at no extra cost. We also asked John to remove a load bearing post which was situated in the middle of our garage making it virtually impossible for me to park my car in the garage. Now I have no problems parking my new car and we can install some decent electric roller doors for protection. We will definitely use John again when we have our finances ready, to renovate our ensuite and laundry.
