A walkthrough for installing a toilet seat in three simple steps! Toilet seat bolts may be hidden under plastic caps. Pry open each cap. Hold each bolt with a screwdriver, and unscrew the nut with adjustable pliers. Some nuts have plastic “wings” that make pliers unnecessary. If the bolts are corroded, apply penetrating oil, wait […]

My Master bath and Hall bath remodels are absolutely stunning and beyond my expectations. Mike’s attention to detail and quality craftsmanship are second-to-none; I have never had a contractor pay as much attention to details as he does. I completely trusted Mike and his assistant to be in my house while I was at work – and I even took a 10 day vacation in the middle of the installation. When I was out of town, in particular, Mike sent me text messages and pictures of the progress so I could stay involved in the process and answer his questions. Mike found a few issues with the original construction in my Master bath, and he gave me the option to fix the issues and get them up to code – and I agreed. When he got to installing the tile, Mike took particular care and planned how he would install it to minimize partial tile pieces and extra cuts. Mike also had some excellent design suggestions, and I agreed with most all of them – except for his suggestion that I consider changing the shower tile (and in the end he really liked my original shower tile choice!). Mike always made it clear that while he had several suggestions, it was always my choice – and it was. Overall, I would recommend MHM Remodeling to my friends – and I already have!
I hope you and Nate are doing fine.
Hall bathroom renovation (Hall bathroom completed). Testimonial: If you’re looking for a real professional and honest contractor, designer, carpenter, electrician, and plumber that comes as an “all in one”, then Mike Stathos is your man! My husband and I couldn’t be more pleased at the fine quality of workmanship that Mike and his assistant Nate did with our master and hall bathrooms. Our master bath didn’t come without problems but Mike knew how to rectify each and every one of them. Every wrong from previous work done was made right and to perfection. It’s very reassuring to know that the interior bones of your bathroom are just as sound and strong as the exterior. Mike made sure of that!
He always openly communicated every major step and procedure with us making sure we understood the implications and alternatives. He provided various design options for both bathrooms and took our needs into consideration at all times. At the end of every week we were provided with a Material Expense Sheet and receipts so we always had a handle on where our money was being spent. We definitely felt a sense of security knowing that we were in good hands with Mike.
Despite all the work that comes with remodeling two bathrooms, Mike still made time to install two new exterior doors for us, four new interior doors, and widen two doorways in the hall bath; still in keeping to his schedule and without sacrificing the quality of any of his work. We were also grateful for the way both Mike and Nate would stop what they were doing at a moment’s notice to address other issues that would come up concerning our home. Who could ask for more than that!
Mike is an artist at what he does. He has a keen eye for walking into a room and seeing exactly how to transform it into something beautiful. He is a real miracle worker in our book, and comes with very high recommendations from both my husband and me.

hall bathroom renovation ( Complete ) Testimonial: A sure sign that a customer is pleased with a vendor is when the customer returns. We just had our second (this time a guest bathroom) remodeled using MHM Remodeling/Mike Stathos and his assistant, Nate. Mike is dependable, full of ideas, and does great quality workmanship. He goes the extra mile, as he even found a soap dish to match my contemporary classy beach themed bathroom. Check out our master bathroom remodel from early
2011 to see our other fantastic transformation. You can’t go wrong with MHM Remodeling!

Bathroom renovation (Complete) Testimonial: We lucked out when we found Mike at MHM. The project could not have gone more smoothly. Mike and Nate really are masters at their jobs, and very professional. They showed up on time each morning and did a great job of finishing everything they set out to do each day. They took good care to protect the rest of our house while they worked, and spent time making everything neat and tidy before they left. Of course there were unexpected surprises (the demo phase was an archaeological dig, uncovering layers of bad decisions and shoddy work done in the past), but Mike made it easy to understand the issues and the options.
We would recommend MHM without hesitation. It’s worth every penny of a very fair price. Our bathroom cost a little over what we originally budgeted only because we ended up choosing higher-priced materials, which was possible to do because Mike doesn’t add a mark-up. Our favorite things are the Casamood tile behind the bathtub (and how Mike arranged the pieces) and the bianco antico granite countertops.
Thank you Mike & Nate! We’ll see you again soon for the next bathroom renovation!
Master bathroom renovation (Complete) cost to complete $24,904.49. Testimonial: We’re very pleased with our new master bathroom. The entire job took just a little over 3 weeks & included new cherry wood custom cabinets, travertine tile in a brick-lay pattern, Jetta soaker tub, Delta fixtures, wallpaper removal and Santa Cecilia granite. In addition to the high quality installation job, Mike was very helpful when it came to making design decisions. For example, we went with tile baseboards instead of wood, used pencil tile to outline the edges of the tile and replaced the window ledges with granite. Mike has a wealth of knowledge and we appreciated his advice on many aspects of the project.
The job went smoothly from start to finish. We had no apprehension about providing Mike with access to our house on days we could not stay at home. Mike & his partner let themselves in, worked a full day & then locked up before leaving. At times it was hard to believe we were undergoing a major remodeling project because they always cleaned up the work areas before leaving for the day. We also appreciate the way Mike kept us informed on all phases of the project.
The tile installation is beautiful & the attention to detail is very evident. For example, the tile was laid under the doorjamb instead of cut to fit around it. We were also impressed by the meticulous paint job.
We appreciated the fact there were no hidden costs. Mike’s labor cost are listed separately from the material costs. This gave us flexibility to control the costs by upgrading or downgrading our selections. We paid the vendors directly for the granite, tile, fixtures, tub & shower enclosure.
Again, we’re very pleased with our new bathroom & highly recommend M.H.M Remodeling for any remodeling work.
Master bathroom renovation. (Complete) Cost to complete 24,500.00. Testimonial: My wife and I have been most impressed with the remodeling project Mike and his competent team completed on our master bathroom.
Mike proved to be a very creative master craftsman. He listened carefully to my wife’s ideas, and made excellent suggestions. We wanted our shower enclosure to be glass, but not see-through. Mike suggested a wide horizontal glass etching with clear glass above and below on the shower enclosure,which offered privacy, yet maintained a visually spacial quality with a clear view of the unique shower floor of flat rock composition. A very pleasing combination.
Mike’s estimates of cost and time for the remodeling were very accurate and well documented. Mike had several contractors and suppliers, and he coordinated their operations very carefully so that no time was wasted, and costs were kept minimum. He only used high quality sub-contractors; and he carefully explained operations of some of the unique fixtures so that we have had no problems.
Mike’s preparation of our house entrances and floors for transport of bathroom articles and construction materials to be installed was exceptional; so that no damage to floors and walls could occur. He carefully cleaned all areas, inside and outside, afterward to leave no unnecessary trace of the remodeling work. The bathroom was left perfectly clean and sparkling; and Mike returned to check for assurances that we had no questions or problems with fixtures, He takes pride in his craft; and his team was quite efficient, cordial, and careful in their efforts.
We have had multiple moves, and in some situations, house repairs or renovations; and we have never worked with a better remodeling or renovating company. Mike was constantly giving us good advice about fixtures, remodeling techniques, and unique layouts such as an efficiently placed shower bench with easy access to all shower fixtures. Remodeling and renovations can be difficult, invasive and unpleasant. Mike made the experience as pleasant and as undisturbed as possible. We have never had a better experience in such situations.
