Testimonials

“We just had Edward Construction do a complete remodel all the way down to the studs on an old house in the South Side. The work was completed on time and looks great! Edward took care of all the permitting and code needs. Edward was available to meet and talk any time about any issues or changes that came up with this old place. He gave us honest estimates and stuck to them. I highly recommend Edward Construction for your remodeling needs. Thanks Edward.”

“We used Edward twice in 2012. Once to convert an old kitchen into a laundry room/mud room & bathroom. And another time to finish off part of our basement. We had an excellent experience working with Edward both times. He came to work when he said he would, always told us the work he planned to accomplish that day, and completed the job in a timely manner. Communication with Edward was great and his price was fair. We plan on using him for future projects.” “Kitchen, bathroom, deck, wood floors, dining room. All projects were done with excellent care and craftsmanship and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Takes the time to do things right and provides great communication throughout the whole process. We get compliments on our house all the time now and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Edward Construction to friends, family and neighbors. Very fair on pricing and willing to work with us on unique building materials.”

“If you have a problem in your house, Edward is your man.

We needed two bathrooms remodeled and were shopping for a contractor to get the job done. We had a fairly good idea of what we wanted, both in terms of design and components. trace route That is, we weren’t looking for contractors who would charge $800 just to ‘design’ the new look (no, this is no joke, one contractor actually asked us for this amount just to prepare a quote …). And we wanted to have someone who wouldn’t break the bank and who would do good work.

I think Edward fit the requirements quite well. He showed up on time. Every time. He’s super reliable. He is to the point, and gets things done with minimal fuss. Moreover, if he runs into problems he isn’t shy to look things up online or ask the manufacturer. This happened a few times since we were using less frequently used German and Japanese components in the bathroom that probably worked a bit differently from what is commonly installed. He is very flexible and won’t rip you off if you need last minute changes. And he’s more than willing to listen to suggestions.

Keep in mind what you’re getting. This is not someone who will install gold-plated McMansion style palaces but he will do a very solid job. And if something isn’t 100% straight, he’ll listen if you tell him and straighten it out. In return, you’re paying $ to $$ but not $$$ to $$$$ for the job. One of the really nice things is that he won’t nickel and dime you for small obstacles (e.g. one of the water valves on the mains was old and leaked after he’d turned the water off. He replaced it free of charge). And yes, he’s very pleasant to deal with.”

Pittsburgh PA Kitchen and Bathroom Negotiating

Pittsburgh Kitchen Renovation

When you are looking to remodel your bathroom or kitchen in Pittsburgh, you want the very best price for the most quality work. How do you go about doing this?

Check online reviews and talk to your friends and family. Chances are, they can refer you to a contractor that they’ve dealt with before.

When a contractor gives you a quote, pay very special attention to the services that are included in the job that you may hire them to do. One contractor may give you a very low price by leaving out a key service, such as painting. As such, when comparing contractors in Pittsburgh, make sure that you are not comparing apples and oranges.

Read the fine print of the contract and make sure that you know what materials they’ll be using to finish your kitchen or bathroom. Some contractors may choose to install cheaper materials in order to give themselves a higher profit margin. You want each estimate from a contractor to be a line item estimate so that you can see everything that you are paying for. When looking at different estimates, make sure that the building materials match up before you compare the hourly rates of the Pittsburgh PA bathroom or kitchen specialists.

Finding the Right Contractor in Pittsburgh PA

If you are looking to remodel your kitchen or bathroom in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, you have a lot of options to choose from. Just do a Google search of “Pittsburgh Contractors” or “Pittsburgh PA Bathroom” and you’ll see over a hundred results. When deciding who to hire, it’s always best to get quotes from several contractors you like and then make a choice. Keep in mind, however, that you often get what you pay for. If you hire a Pittsburgh bathroom renovator for cheap, it’s likely that the work they do will be of sub-par quality. This doesn’t mean, however, that a Pittsburgh home renovation specialist cannot be affordable and of high quality. To find this kind of contractor in Pittsburgh you’re going to want to check out the reviews of the service on sites such as Google Places or Yelp.com. You’re also going to want to ask the contractor for some references that you can contact because many companies post their own “reviews” online in order to give themselves a favorable appearance.

How to Save Money off of a Pittsburgh Bathroom Renovation

If you are looking for a bathroom, kitchen, basement, or any other type of home improvement project  renovation,  you’re likely to hire a contractor within the Pittsburgh area. Whenever you get quotes from different contractors, compare on an apples to apples basis. In other words, differentiate each contractor on the basis of their experience, quality, gut feel, and hourly rate, rather than the building materials that they use. Pittsburgh contractors may come from different neighborhoods: Greenfield, Oakland, East Liberty, Squirrel Hill, Lawrenceville, etc.  But they all get their building supplies from the same Home Depot or Lowe’s that you yourself go to.

Some people in the Pittsburgh area assume that the contractor has a pre-determined list of materials that is untouchable. Fact is, the choice is up to you. Give your contractor a list of the things you want in your bathroom renovation so that they can go to the Waterfront Lowe’s, or the East Liberty Home Depot, and get it themselves.

Here are some ways you can save on building materials and add as much value to your renovation…

Choose a humble vanity. In fact, if you go on eBay, you’ll find plenty of contemporary looking vanities that will add some flair and style for less than half the price of a vanity that you can get at Lowe’s or Home Depot in Pittsburgh. Simply buy the vanity yourself and have the Pittsburgh contractor or plumber your hired, install it.

Get durable, but not expensive, floor tiles. Your floor doesn’t have to have granite tiles with fancy looking designs. However, at all costs, do not put anything that resembles a rug or a carpet in your bathroom. You’ll get a moldy/smelly bathroom, which none of your Pittsburgh house guests would appreciate.

Use painted walls rather than expensive tile. A bathroom, which has a well thought out color scheme can work just as well, if not better, than a bathroom that is completely tiled up.

The Benefits of a Pittsburgh Patio or Deck Construction

Pittsburgh Deck Patio Construction

The backyards of most houses are pretty depressing sites. A layer of grass, maybe some chairs, and not much else. Building a patio or deck that connects directly to a room in the back of the house is almost like adding another room to your residence. Your backyard is no longer your “back” yard, but a part of your house. A raised deck or patio can be constructed if your backyard is not level.

Why not just place some chairs on grass in your backyard instead of building an entire patio or deck in Pittsburgh? A construction of a deck or patio creates a uniform place that is orderly and not chaotic. It gives you a sense of peace and relaxation knowing that your deck is your deck.
