A Cobble Hill bathroom gets cleaned up
“Sweeten enabled us to not get bogged down in the research process of trying to find a good, dependable contractor.” –Jen & Brent, Cobble Hill renters
This week we’re taking a look at 2 bathroom projects that were recently completed by a Sweeten network member. The first project was posted to Sweeten, a free service matching renovators with vetted general contractors, by Cobble Hill renters Jen & Brent. The couple’s charming new flat came with but one pretty gnarly problem –the bathroom. When we saw the damage, we quickly referred them to South Fork Tile owner Gennadiy Kaliberda.
Before Gennadiy and his team came in, Jen & Brent’s bathroom was being overgrown with mold and mildew, and a few of the shower tiles had even fallen off. The couple’s sink was hanging from the wall and just barely big enough for washing hands.
In no time at all, South Fork Tile was able to make this bathroom like-new, and the results are surprisingly chic for a rental-appropriate project budget! The scope of the work also grew from the obvious problem areas to include replacing the existing faux-marble flooring with these classic penny round ceramic tiles.
Subway tiles on the walls make another very classic and affordable choice, and the new sink and faucet from ikea are a perfect fit for the tiny bathroom.
So clean –we can only imagine how relieved Jen & Brent must be! With their project out of the way, the couple told us:
“Gennadiy [of South Fork Tile] was dependable, professional, as well as easy to reach and communicate with. [We] would recommend him to anyone who needed good work done.” –Jen & Brent
Soon after finishing up Jen & Brent’s rental, we called on Gennadiy for another bathroom tiling project in the Upper West Side.
Julie posted to Sweeten after having purchased her own tile and medicine cabinet for her guest bath, all she needed was the right person to install them for her and paint the space.
In the end, Julie was so pleased with both the quality and price of Gennadiy’s work, she told us:
“Gennadiy was extremely meticulous with great attention to detail and took great pride in his work product.”
Awesome! Many thanks to Julie, Jen & Brent, and to Gennadiy and team at South Fork Tile.
