Bathroom Remodeling Project - Baton Rouge, LA

Out with the old, in with the new

Many folks move into older homes that need work. Our project here was bathroom which was decades outdated. We were glad to take on this bathroom remodeling project from start to finish. 

Our client had a clear vision as to what they wanted to achieve in their bathroom space with keeping to the floor plan. The primary updates were the tub, linen storage, and vanity areas. This would entail some heavy demolition in the room as the walls were very thick tile and mortar,1960s style.

An updated bathroom is something we all could use in our day to day life. Renovating it to a modern style and to our own tastes is very important.

 We demo’d the old linen closet, vanity, tub, and wall / floor tiles. The toilet was removed and set aside to be re-used. Most of the sheetrock and ceiling above the tile was decided to be kept. The light fixtures and medicine cabinet were sent to the landfill abyss.

The tile work that contractors installed back in the day was quite durable. With the green wall tile and the cement underneath being roughly a 1″ thick the walls proved to be the most difficult part of the demolition.

Expect the unexpected

The project moved along smoothly for considering the general delay of shipping on materials and fixtures during this time for the economy. Our client had ordered all the fixtures and finishes for the project beforehand so we had most everything besides the installation materials which we would supply throughout. 

When it came to the bathtub that was ordered, we found out it was a non-standard make that wouldn’t fit the bathroom alcove space as it was laid out originally. We were able to recoup fast and obtain a tub that would work the same day

Also, it turned out that the framing behind the tub was termite damaged previously and we had to get it in good repair before we started working on the tub. Once repaired, the tub was set then, valve installed and water and drainage connections were made by our licensed plumber.

A pre-existing clog issue in the laundry drainage line started to occur in the middle of the renovation. Though there was one thing after another related to the plumbing we go it through it and headed for the finish line.

Home Resolution LLC performed a remodel on my home in the Summer of 2022. This was my first experience doing a renovation of any size on my house, but Benjamin did a great job communicating to keep me informed of the process and what to expect. The crew was professional and reliable throughout the project. There was always work being performed and I didn’t feel like we were ever overlooked or forgotten. It was very helpful having a contractor coordinating the plumber, electrician, etc. so that I didn’t have to worry about juggling everyone. Benjamin is honest and easy to work with and I would recommend his work/project management to anyone that needs to renovate their house.

I have known Ben for several years and he has done quite a few projects for me at my home. He replaced the carpet in my bedrooms and closets with wood floors, pressure washed my house and driveway, and several small repairs and maintenance jobs. I can highly recommend Ben for any of your home improvement needs you may have. He is a talented craftsman and very trustworthy.

We had severe floor damage from a leaking toilet. Floor damage was extensive, our home is off the ground. Wood floor had to be torn out and replaced, double floor. Benjamin completed repair and replaced both wood floors, installed new toilet and new flooring in bathroom. We would highly recommend Benjamin for any home maintenance. We will be using him again for some other home projects. As a matter of fact, we just recommended Home Resolutions to an individual that said needed some home repair.

Best home repair experience I’ve had. Quality work from a reliable worker. For years I had some AC ductwork running across my ceiling to my back room. I hired Ben to box it in with Sheetrock and the results were amazing. Also, had him install underpinning under the house and couldn’t be more pleased with the results!

I found Ben's website using a google search and since he already had such good reviews, we asked him to take down some old posts outside our office building. The good reviews will continue from us! He was prompt and the work was fairly priced. Called him back to patch up a large hole in one of our office ceilings and to make a backsplash for one of the kitchens. Both look fantastic and we are pleased with what he has done for us. We will definitely contact him first for work in the future.

I highly recommend Ben at Riley Home Solutions. He has done several jobs on my home, including: removing an old storm door and custom fitting and hanging a new wooden door; installing ceiling light fixtures; repairing a wood floor; and installing door knobs that had to be custom fitted in my old french door. He responds quickly, is a great problem solver, did an excellent job and charges very reasonable prices.

Some Minor Tweaks

Some framing had to be done to fit the new medicine cabinet. The vent for the dryer ran through the old vanity and our client chose to maintain that through the new cabinet.
