Bakai Construction LLC History and Mission

"My wife and I were very impressed with Barney and his crew. They were very professional, skilled, and thorough. We had a few contractors here and none of them wanted to do the crown molding. The layout really called upon someone who is highly skilled and we were not disappointed. It was easy to see that they are very customer service oriented, they consistently asked for feedback from us every step of the way. I have every intention of hiring them for my next job"

"[Barney] was able to solve a problem the two previous contractors could not.  The old floor was removed and a new floor installed correctly.  It looks much better aesthetically and functions perfectly. They even re-installed the shower door better than it was originally installed. I highly recommend Bakai Construction for any bathroom remodeling project. Barney did an excellent job repairing a shower floor that two previous contractors had not installed correctly.  Barney diagnosed the problem and provided a reasonable estimate and advised the use of smaller tiles which previous contractors had never suggested.  The repair was done on-time, in a clean and efficient manner. The craftsmanship was excellent and thorough"

"Barney did a great job.  He responds to email really well, which made working with him much easier than with other contracts.  He brought in subcontractors for the plumbing, electrical, and painting work, as well as had a couple of people to help him with cabinets and tile.  He really cares about doing a good job and we are pleased with the results.  As an example, he built our shower floor slightly tilted towards the drain so that it drains really well...
All the subcontractors Barney used were very pleasant and performed their work well, too.
Another great thing about working with Barney is that he guided us through many of the selection processes, telling us what would and wouldn't work, and helping us deal with the company he recommends for glass doors and mirrors.
I really felt as if Barney was our partner on this project, and I would recommend him without reservation"

"Fantastic.  Barney was really great to work with.  He is very knowledgeable and will provide as much professional guidance as you would like as you sort through all of the choices that need to be made when remodeling a bathroom.  The master bath was totally refinished.  The shower was enlarged and tiled with decorative design.  A new "claw foot" bath tub was installed in place of a builtin tub.  New tile floored installed with a design that "tied in" to the shower tile.  A new vanity was installed along , new mirror, lighting and paint.
Barney's team worked every day (M thru F) until the job was completed.  They always cleaned up the construction area each evening"

"Bakai construction completed a full renovation of our master bathroom shower and replaced the flooring in a separate jack and jill bathroom.  The project went very well from start to finish and Barney was great to work with throughout the process.  Barney provided a written estimate within 2 days of his visit and the estimate was for the exact amount that was billed at the end of the project.  Barney and his team removed the existing brass shower frame, ceramic tile, and the fiberglass shower base.  New travertine stone tile was installed on the walls, floor, and bench.  His plumber installed new shower hardware to match the new design and everything has worked as expected.  Barney also coordinated the measurement and installation of the new frameless shower door with our glass provider which made the whole process much easier for us to manage.  The project took 2.5 weeks and we are thrilled with the results.
In addition to the shower project, the team also removed the ceramic tile floor from our kids bathroom and replaced it with new tile that better matched the new design of that bathroom.  This project was done start to finish in 4 days, including the demo, installation, and grouting.  
Special thanks to Barney and Derek (who did the tile work) for making the process easy for us and doing a really high quality job in both rooms.  Once we exchanged cell numbers, we were able to handle almost the entire project via text messaging which was helpful given work demands"
