“Dear PoP,

I bought a condo in Shaw last year. It is a new building, and while I love most things about the place, the developer installed my shower stall incorrectly. The grout is jacked up, and the floor needs to be completely replaced. I only intend to renovate the shower, though – the rest of the bathroom is fine.

I started my research with Washingtonian’s home improvement issue, but most of those firms either don’t work in Shaw or handle much larger, more expensive projects than mine. So, that’s where the commenters come in. Has anyone had a good experience hiring a local contractor to do a small-scale bathroom project? If so, how much did you pay, and how long did it take?”

Anyone have a small scale bathroom renovation done? (If so in addition to the reader’s questions – if you like the reno please send an email of a before and after photo to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.)
