From our first meeting/consultation to the completion of our basement remodel, Alex, Carolina and the team at AC Remodeling took the time to listen to our thoughts and present us with a design, now finished, that we are incredibly happy with! Ours was a tricky space to work with, but the resulting remodel is a wonderful refresh to the dark, dank space it was. They and their work crew were always professional and insistent on using quality materials. Even after completing the remodel, Alex and his team promptly answered our calls and follow up questions. We will gladly hire them again for future renovations. Thanks Alex and team!

We couldn’t be more happy with our experience working with Alex, Carolina and their team. We have had many contractors complete numerous projects on this and other houses, but working with the AC Remodeling team has been the best, hands down. Everything, from the design work to their simplified process for selecting cabinets, appliances and tile to their top quality craftsmanship. But, the best part of all was the people. The entire crew are true professionals. They always respected our house and our space and cleaned up before they left each evening. We really enjoyed working with them and chatting with them in the morning before they started and every evening to see what they accomplished that day. We will definitely work with AC Remodeling in the future and would recommend them for any remodeling job without reservations.

AC Remodeling renovated my basement and a bathroom. Alex and Carolina and their team were great to work with throughout the entire process, ensuring I was satisfied. I was picky at times with my selections (I wanted marble in a basement bathroom for example!) -- and Alex was flexible to accommodate and make sure everything matched well and was completed with quality. I would definitely work with them again and recommend!

Alex, Melissa, Carolina and the entire team were wonderful to work with from the beginning. They understood the family challenges, listened to what we needed and worked through each step with us. We ended up with a beautiful, new bathroom, repaired kitchen and all new plumbing. The entire team was so thoughtful and considerate about our space. Can not recommend more highly.

AC Remodeling remodeled our basement which had two sides finished at different times by the previous owners maybe 25 or 30 years ago. It was, cold, low ceilings, and not appealing. With the wall between areas and no bedroom door, we could never figure out how to change it. The design services provided at the beginning of the project showed us exactly how it would look in the end and now it looks just like the design. All of our exercise equipment is on one side and the in-law suite bedroom has a door and beautiful bathroom. There is an updated gorgeous kitchenette and TV room. We love to spend time down there. There was plenty of communication, and the final finishes are perfect. Anything that we required was incorporated and any questions and concerns were dealt with by Alex very quickly. We are very pleased with our remodel and we can't wait to have visitors.

2020 Update: I have since used Alex for another bathroom and a complete kitchen remodel, and he is as perfect as ever! We actually left the house for six weeks while he was doing the kitchen, to make it easier for me, and him. I didn't lose a wink of sleep over not being there. I can't imagine having any work done without Alex. I've also had smaller projects, painting, half bath, and front door. I highly recommend Alex, Carolina, and their team. They are expertly skilled, detail oriented, and so very careful with your home and your project. The pricing and project plan are clear and detailed, the team is proficient, polite, and extremely skilled, and from top to bottom they are committed to making you happy. My bathroom is spectacular and the entire process was pleasant. My project was a major overhaul of an onsuite master bath for me. Actually it was a tiny walkin closet and a tiny bathroom. We combined them into a larger bathroom with a dressing area. From the beginning Alex is clear, concise, and very knowledgeable. He lays out the project for you and gives you info on choices you have to make. He accompanied us to look at tile and fixtures and explained the pros and cons of the ones we were considering. He ordered, picked up and delivered everything. I mean everything. Tile. Fixtures. Rags. Garbage bags. Lumber. Door. Bottled water for his team! The project started very quickly. Throughout the project, the carpet and stairs were covered, even when the workers were gone for the day. When they were there, additional tarps were laid down. Every night the area was cleaned and packed up, the garbage was removed, etc. There was even a pole system tarp blocking off the area so dirt and debris were contained. There were 'challenges' in my project as there always are. The subfloor was mush and had to be replaced, as did the bottom of a few studs. Alex again showed me the issues, clearly laid out the options, but let me choose. I have heard horror stories of missing contractors, long delays, shoddy work. So I chose AC for two reasons, the 5 star rating and a photo of one of his projects that I loved the wood look tile on. So I feel happy and proud to add my own 5 star to the reviews.

We have been using AC remodeling since 2012 when they renovated our kitchen. That experience was so good, we’ve used them to renovate 2 baths, a french door, and numerous painting and fix-it jobs. Alex and his crew are extremely talented, do excellent work, always clean and tidy and within budget. We give them our highest endorsement. Truly, you cannot find a better contractor.

AC Remodeling just recently finished remodeling my master bath, and I am so happy with how it turned out! I had a vision, but needed help with selecting finishes. Alex and Carolina are wonderful to work with, and will guide you every step of the way (if that's what you want). I would not hesitate to recommend AC Remodeling to anyone wanting to remodel a bathroom. I am also dreaming of a kitchen remodel one day, and I know the first place I will call!

We hired AC Remodeling to remodel our kitchen, breakfast room and attached den area. They were referred by a friend and colleague who used AC for their kitchen remodel. From the very first visit until the final punch list item, the experience could not have been better. This is our 12th home and 5th kitchen remodel. We knew exactly what we wanted from our contractor. A company that listened, had a reputation for excellent quality, hired skilled and trustworthy people and used the best quality material is what we were after. Alex and Carolina Reyes and their crew provided us with a fabulous job. The quality and fit and finish are beyond words. We went for a very modern style and they delivered. I highly recommend AC Remodeling

Rockville Bathroom Remodeling Guide: Most Common Challenges

After completing countless Rockville bathroom remodeling projects, here are some of the top budget-busting issues you may find after the walls come down and floors come up. (Don't worry, we do our best to take this into consideration during the budget and proposal phase!)

Depending on the era when your home construction happened, there may be some issues with the construction that have, or could cause, problems that you will need to correct. Planning can help eliminate higher costs and frustration as you or your contractor demo the current bathroom.

An issue common to Maryland is hard water as measured by USGS at an average hardness of 118 PPM. Hard water contains high levels of certain minerals that over time cause build-up, decreasing the water quality and even clogging up the drains.

Old-Cast-Iron-Copper-Pipes-2 

Pinholes in Copper Pipes

Older copper pipes may have developed pinholes in homes without water softeners. Hard water, standard in Rockville, causes build-up and corrosion inside the copper pipes. As the corrosion spreads, it destroys the copper, and pinholes develop. When showers and sinks run, water running through the pipes seeps out through the pinholes and damages the framework and surrounding walls.

If your home has copper piping, it is best to budget for and replace the water lines, even if you do not see any pinhole damage now. Using a water softener may delay corrosion to the pipes, but eventually, there will be a problem.

Cracks in the Acrylic Shower Base

Acrylic shower bases are a popular, cost-effective item but, over time, can develop cracks from general wear and tear, the use of the wrong underlayment, or improper installation. Water leaking through the cracks can destroy the shower foundation underlayment, as well as the framing and joists below.

Replacing an acrylic shower base with porcelain tile can be attractive and offer the added advantages of high density and low moisture permeability. You have the option of installing a tile shower base with tile walls or tiling the bottom and using an acrylic shower surround if your budget is tight.

The County approves two systems for installing complete waterproofing shower bases and walls –  Schluter Systems, or Wedi systems.

Known Issues with Rockville Bathrooms Built Before 1970

Nothing is more frustrating than tearing into a remodel project and finding issues outside your planned budget. Was your home built before 1970? If so, you need to read on to discover the potential problems that will significantly impact your remodel budget in time and dollars.

Cast Iron Pipes

Cast iron plumbing became common in homes in the 1930s and was the only available option until the 1970s when PVC became more common in plumbing projects. PVC is a durable, cheaper, and more flexible product for home construction.

Cast iron pipes are in homes built before the mid-1970s. Although considered a durable product in their day, the lines can build up with mineral deposits and develop rust over time.

Older homes with cast iron plumbing and sewer lines are at risk of damage from tree roots that grow into the water and sewer lines. These can cause black water to enter the pipes, rust contamination, fungus and bacteria growth, and resulting issues to the plumbing inside of the home. Some problems can create clogged or slow drains, water discoloration, foul smells from sewer gases, and more.

Replacement of cast iron pipes within the home during a remodel should be a priority.

Improper Subfloor

Reinforced subfloor that had sustained water damage 
Reinforced subfloor that had sustained water damage

Many older homes were built without using plywood or waterproofing material as the subfloor in bathrooms. Current standards for construction use plywood, then a waterproof material before installing the shower base.

If your bathroom dates before the 1950s, it is possible that it has no subfloor. Many bathrooms were constructed with 1 x 4 lumber nailed diagonally to the floor joists. Over time, moisture on these boards can deteriorate the wood and make the floor unstable.

While remodeling, install a plywood subfloor and waterproof material under the shower base.

Plaster Walls Without Proper Insulation

Plaster-no-insulation 

Older home walls were often built with lathe and plaster and had no insulation. If planning a remodel on your bathroom, removing the plaster and lathe and replacing it with drywall is a practical step.

Repairing a plaster wall is labor-intensive, which drives up the cost. In addition, plaster does not meet energy-efficient thermal standards. Plaster walls attract moisture, which are breeding areas for mold and mildew.

By removing a plaster wall, insulation beneath new bathroom drywall creates energy efficiency for your bathroom. Several moisture-barrier types are available for use, so check with your home improvement center for costs.

Electrical Wiring Issues

Wiring in older homes can be a big concern, especially in the bathroom where hairdryers, curling irons, and similar gadgets are used. The main problem is if the wiring is grounded or ungrounded.

An ungrounded plug can be the source of an electrical fire, shorted-out circuits, shocks, and more. It is ungrounded if any outlet in your home only has the 2-hole (prong) plug as all grounded outlets have 3-holes.

Budgeting to have an electrician run wiring to the bathroom that meets the safety code is a smart idea.

Before You Start Your Bathroom Remodel ...

We’ve addressed the structural issues of plumbing and electricity, but there are also some design and ambiance characteristics you may want to consider.

Best countertops and surfaces to combat hard water

Since hard water is a problem throughout the state and Rockville, you will want to choose surfaces for the bath, shower, sinks, and countertops that better resist hard water deposits.

While porcelain tile is used in many showers, it requires regular cleaning to remove water spots. Many installers recommend wiping down the shower walls and fixtures with a squeegee or towel after each use.

Quartz and high-quality granite are suitable surfaces that are easier to keep clean than marble. Quartz is a natural stone and creates durable countertops when mixed with resin and other materials, and granite is cut and polished into the desired shape. Both quartz and granite should be cleaned with non-ammonia and non-alcohol (green) products. Marble is porous and needs to be sealed regularly (depending on use), and toiletry products can stain marble if spilled.

Fixture Choices

The fixtures you choose for the shower, bath, and sink should be midrange to high quality for durability, performance, and ease of cleaning. Many plumbers and bathroom installers have a favorite brand, but if pricing fixtures to establish your remodel budget, these are a few of the favorites:

Less expensive fixtures will not hold up to regular use and stain or show watermarks. A high-quality fixture will also be easier to find replacement parts if needed.
