This was a renovation to update the master bathroom including new terrazzo tile flooring, tiled walk in shower, countertops, sinks and tub. We were also adding a king size bed to the open master bedroom so needed Cecily’s decorating expertise with this. Many have commented on what a delight it was to work with both Bruce and Cecily. They inspire you with not only their obvious confidence, but their expertise. I truly think Bruce himself could do any or all of it. We added several smaller jobs to the work which he quickly completed for us. Cecily said early on in our conversations ” I grew up where things were done on a handshake”.
Once the formalities of a clear contract and clear prices were all in place, much of the work proceeded based on trust or a “handshake”. The prices all came right on budget and they did offer options for prices or options to work with what was in place. We did not get a second quote, but do know the prices they were able to get on products were far less than we could get ourselves. This compensated for the contracting price. They operate on a cost plus percentage basis and it is always clear what you are paying for.
Cecily coordinates the work efficiently and either she or Bruce always accompany the trade they are using. Her charm has ensured a great relationship with all the trades, which were all excellent. We did not see the plumber or electrician actually doing the work but it was carefully supervised by Bruce and all went well. The painters were fast and careful careful, accommodating additional jobs that we added. We removed the stippled ceiling and it was was given a perfect drywall finish. The key to the bathroom renovation was the tile. Cecily helped us with choosing the tile and the tiler was an exceptional craftsman. He worked long hours to complete the project for us and we are thrilled with it.
I would hire Cecily in a moment for her decorating advice. She has classy taste and our bedroom is now both pretty, light and calm. We followed her suggestions, despite some reservations and we are pleased we did.
We would hire the Woolrich group in the future for any projects inside or out.
