Skolfield Homes



Like kitchens,  the remodeling of the bathroom involves three main ingredients: 1) the selection and installation of the cabinetry; 2) the selection and installation of the countertops, tile, and plumbing fixtures; and 3) the construction process in general.  There is also, of course, the management team necessary to coordinate all this.

The way we like the construction process to go when we renovate bathrooms involves taking down all of the plaster or drywall in the ceiling and walls.  This is not always the case, but usually it is the appropriate way to go.  The benefits to this approach are many.  First, they include exposing all wall cavities to allow inspection and improvement on any existing electrical and/or plumbing that may be substandard behind the ceiling or walls.  Second, being able to shop-vac out all the wall cavities to be certain there is no food source for any wood-destroying creatures or other pests.  Third, applying pest-control products inside the wall cavities.  Fourth, allowing us to true-up any walls that may not be perfectly flat.  and finally this allows  us to more easily locate all electrical in accordance with the renovation drawings approved by the client.  And finally, having the ability to install lighting and/or plumbing fixtures as close as possible to the desired location

The way this process works best is for the client to select the various components consisting of flooring, cabinetry, countertop material, sink and plumbing fixtures, molding choices, paint choices, electrical switch covers, lighting fixtures, recessed lighting fixtures, etc.  This can be done with our assistance or the assistance of your own decorator.  We have a good working relationship with a number of suppliers for these items, which we are happy to recommend.  We also will welcome any new manufacturers that you may already have a relationship with or wish to work with.  Some of these items we can and do handle ourselves as well.
