Faye S., Harleysville, PA—Master Bedroom & Bathroom Remodel

We’ve been working with Meridian Construction since 2008, on various projects, all with excellent results. The upstairs of our house consisted of two large bedrooms, a tiny bathroom and hall at the top of the stairs. This was a very challenging renovation in that the house and its current configuration seemed to fight back with each great idea we had! Larry Giannone worked tirelessly with us to design a plan that gave us increased function as well as aesthetics within our limited budget. Working with demanding customers with champagne taste on a budget is not easy, but Larry was always willing to go the extra mile to give us alternative design options, staying on budget but not compromising quality. Mick Giannone also worked hard to give us accurate cost estimates of the various options, and again, never compromising quality! This also was no small feat given the number of different tradesmen involved in our project, and the wide variety of materials chosen.
– The bathroom was expanded by three feet to accommodate an oversized custom shower with built in, full width seat , shampoo niche, glass door, corner shelves and specialty faucet and hardware. Walls, seat, niches and shelves are marble tile and shower pan, seat top and selected trim is corian, specially manufactured design, which makes a beautiful as well as functional (no grout lines in floor of shower!) installation. A true spa experience each morning!
– The marble used on the shower walls is also used on the floor of the bathroom. They built an entire feature wall made of small glass and marble tiles, floor to ceiling, which takes this bathroom to the next level. This was no simple feat, since the walls were out of plumb and had to be built out to ensure a quality installation. There was a great deal of labor in setting the tiles as well, given the size of the tiles, and the cutting required to ensure a good fit and quality design.
– Plumbing work included moving all plumbing for bath/shower, installation of all new fixtures, and work to hot water baseboard heat runs.
– While closet space in the bedrooms was ample, access was limited. The solution was to remove the single door on each to new double doors, which solved the functional issue, but came with a structural challenge, dealing with a sloping ceiling. They conquered this challenge and also provided a nice trim detail to make the doors look aesthetically pleasing as well as functional, and now the closet contents are easily accessible. In addition, all new solid wood access doors were installed upstairs in bedrooms, bath and hallway.
– Electrical work in the bedrooms/hall/bath included upgraded lighting, outlets, state of the art Panasonic fan, cable outlet.
– It is a pleasure to use this beautiful bathroom, bedroom and sitting room every day, and a testament to this company of hard working and honest craftsmen who take excellent customer service very seriously. The work ethic and commitment to quality of Meridian’s owners and talented employees extends to their subs as well. All treat us, and our homes, with the utmost respect, it is such a pleasure working with them!
