For a retirement investment, I purchased a single house a few years ago. I was fortunate to be able to rent the house out to a family of five since day one of ownership of the property. However, recently, the family moved out and the house was left in an inhabitable condition.
The house is a single story home with two bedrooms, one bath and a large enclosed patio. My original plan was to remodel the kitchen, replace the windows, raise the sunken bathtub and repair the damaged ceiling/wall/window in the patio. I was also thinking of possibly remodeling the home into a 3 bedroom / two bath, but was not sure quite how to do so. After obtaining several competitive estimates from various contractors, I chose the New Home Kitchen and Bath Company in Cerritos for the job. Working directly with the company’s co-owner, Mr. Paul Zhang, I was very impressed by his knowledge and experience as a general contractor. Mr. Zhang listened to our plan carefully and came back with a well thought out draft layout plan for remodeling the home into a 3 bedroom / two bath without having to do an expensive build out. As all property owners know, this any type of home remodeling can be mentally straining and very stressful. However, under the direction of Mr. Zhang, the construction went forward as smoothly and efficiently as it could even with the big task and stringent requirements from the city building inspectors. The work was complete in only in 8 weeks due to Mr. Zhang’s full attention to finish the job and produce a beautiful three bedroom/two bath home that I am more than happy with.
As a property owner, to transform a rundown two bedroom/one bath house to a newly remodeled three bedroom / two bath is a big undertaking. The increased value of this property is anyone’s guess, but I was able to remodel the home in a cost effective manner with the experience and knowledge of Mr. Zhang of New Home Kitchen and Bath Company. As such, I will highly recommend Mr. Paul Zhang to my relatives and friends for all home remodel jobs without reservation.
Greg and I want to thank you for the beautiful addition that you built onto our house. We love knowing that it is built so well and so perfectly. You are so great to work with. You and your crew are very punctual which is unheard of in your industry. Your crew is very neat and cleans at the end of the day or week and did not leave us to live with trash in the front of the house for all to see. We love that you made sure every aspect of the build was well done and perfect and you did not move on to the next step until it was perfect (even when I was begging you too!) You finished in a decent time frame and we did not feel that you were doing a lot of jobs around ours. We felt we were a priority for you and that is a great feeling. Your crew are so professional and nice to have around and such hard workers! I also loved your eye for detail and your sense of style. Many of your suggestions were perfect. I felt like we had a contractor and a designer! You helped us make so many design decisions! We will always think fondly of you and always consider you a friend of ours. We will not use any other contractor!
I am a Performance Manager by trade, and I have led several small and large projects for my department. No project is too big for me, however when it came to remodeling my home I felt inexperienced as well as an immense pressure to get the job done up to my family’s high expectation. Selecting a responsible and cooperative general contractor was of utmost importance to me and had in fact delayed my project for years until I met Mr. Paul Zhang. I met Paul by chance when I stepped into The Home Kitchen & Bath store in Cerritos while my wife was shopping at a nearby grocery store.
From my experience, a remodeling project has several factors – design, workmanship, timing, and cost. Any one of these factors going awry can trigger a nightmare if you don’t have a reliable general contractor. Failure stories have happened too often and can be heard everywhere among your family, friends, or associates.
This is the very reason I sincerely recommend Mr. Paul Zhang for your remodeling project. As a general contractor, Paul is an excellent planner with reasonable costs. He will come prepared with layouts in color prints for your decision making, an estimated schedule on work progress, and a final walkthrough for job acceptance. I had a great experience with Paul and I am very satisfied with his quality of work.
My wife and I would like to share with you a few thoughts on the remodeling of our new kitchen, bathroom, and recreation room. After a few years of procrastinating about our home remodeling and checking out numerous prices and companies, we ran across an advertisement and photo in our local paper, showing us how nice and affordable remodeling could be. We decided to drop in “New Home Kitchen and Bath” to compare the quality of their materials to others we had looked at. We were met by contractor Paul Zhang and co owner Charles. We were amazed to find kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops and tile flooring with the perfect coloring and design that we were looking for. We then asked Mr. Zhang if he could have someone come to our home to discuss cabinet locations and measurements. He replied that he could be out the next day to measure and answer all of our questions. After that took place, we sat down and conferred with Mr. Zhang regarding prices and the amount of time the kitchen remodeling would take to finish. We were pleasantly surprised at the cost. When he told us that the entire process (the “tear down” of our old kitchen, new electrical work, the replacement of a new kitchen window, new tile flooring, new paint job, the cabinet installations, and granite countertops) would only take eight days, well it sealed the deal!
Surprisingly true to their word, the completely new kitchen WAS finished in just eight days and it was more perfect than we could have imagined! Their team even went beyond some of their contracted duties to meet our desires and needs, such as making a few additional “touch-ups”, installing all of our newly purchased kitchen appliances, and even throwing in a new kitchen sink, all free of charge! We were so impressed with the quality and efficiency of their work, that we then signed up for the remodeling of our downstairs bathroom as well as tile floor work for our recreation room. We have recommended Paul & Charles’s business to a dozen of our close friends and family, all of whom have used “New Home Kitchen and Bath” and are as pleased with their results as we have been. We plan to have “New Home Kitchen and Bath” remodel the bathroom in our upstairs master bedroom as well! Thanks to the efforts of Paul and Charles, we have a new home.
