I enjoyed working with April and Nip Tuck Remodel. From our very first meeting I knew the project was going to move smoothly. April’s attention to detail, promptness, and dedication to the job, made the remodel of our master bath, powder room, and hall bath move so smoothly that time flew by.
Upon completion of the remodel we had three beautiful bathrooms ready for company to visit this summer. Her assistant, Kari, was efficient, dependable, and wonderful to work with as well. I loved having a calendar that covered the project’s progress. From start to finish April and her team at Nip Tuck were on time and on budget. We appreciated their professionalism and dedication to completing the project and making the experience of a major remodel of three bathrooms so pleasant. I would highly recommend April and her team at Nip Tuck Remodeling to our family and friends.
I had been enduring my kitchen for the past 20 years. There were odd angles everywhere, never enough convenient storage, things were always shoved to the back of cabinets and forgotten, counters were piled high with appliances and clutter, and there was no good working space
Enter April Bettinger of Nip Tuck Remodeling…
April sat down with me and patiently suffered through my rendition of kitchen woes. She helped me identify my real needs and my greatest frustrations. She gave me ideas of how I could incorporate my family room with the kitchen and create a much more welcoming and functional space. She worked with the crazy odd angles and turned them into advantages.
She started out by taking detailed measurements, and then produced several different floorplans with 3D renderings for my consideration, complete with ballpark estimates for each estimate. This made it easy for me to narrow in on a single option that was within my price range. And she did all this preliminary work free of charge or obligation!
After the contract was negotiated, April and her team at Abodian (Cabinetry) worked closely with me to select woods, flooring, counter tops, tile, appliances, etc. April steered me clear of cheap shortcuts that I would have regretted, finding high-quality alternatives at prices I could afford. For instance, I was originally thinking of Formica counter-tops, but April dragged me to a granite supplier out in Kirkland, where I was able to find a granite slab I just loved, full of gorgeous crystalline and garnet inclusions, at an economy price.
I grew to trust April so much that I felt comfortable timing the demolition to coincide with a family vacation, so I missed the worst of the mess. When we returned from vacation, the remodel was well under way. Her carpentry team was very professional and tidy, and they made sure my hardwood floors were protected and dust shields were installed between the construction zone and the rest house, as well as dust filter protection over the heating air intakes. They even got along well with our two dogs!
The job was entirely done on schedule in less than 4 months. I was impressed by the high quality of work and attention to every last detail. There were no major surprises, and change order work was on the order of perhaps $1,000, which is nothing on a project of this scope!
I am loving my new kitchen!
April and the Nip Tuck team did a great job on our remodel. With great design input, we focused on what needed to be done to stay within budget, but get an amazing outcome! From the new hardwood floors, to kitchen counters, to painting and base, to fixtures and appliances, the project was a huge success.
The Nip Tuck suppliers were excellent. On time, great communication from Kari as our PM, and a real focus on team and working together to deliver. They even finished two days early in time for Christmas!
We are delighted to have already pass along Nip Tuck to some friends for their project.
Dependable, decisive, creative, an innovator: Nip Tuck Remodeling.
It is always a pleasure to work with April and her staff. Her professional attitude and ability to work with others is greatly appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
April assembled a great team and we are thrilled with our new master bathroom. April was accessible and responsive from start to finish. Communication was clear, consistent and we were able to keep our project reasonably on time and budget (we had a couple of extra things we decided to add on – i.e. the heated tile floor is a dream!).
The team of professionals April brought in (carpenter, painters, tiler, electrician…) were excellent and sometimes worked very long days to ensure the schedule was met. We selected a challenging carved tile as our focal point and it was installed beautifully. The attention to detail on carpentry is superb. April also was a great resource for connecting us with a few other vendors we needed to get related aspects of our job done that we chose to manage ourselves (window replacement, closet organizers, carpet). As we were updating our bathroom we decided to do some cleanup/upgrade work to the other upstairs rooms ourselves and with the help of family and other familiar carpenters we could hire directly. This could have been a real challenge but April was extremely open minded and worked with us to try to schedule to avoid conflicts, her subcontractors were cooperative and helpful and it all worked out very well.
The overall end result from April is that we now have a gorgeous and functional master suite. A friend said it was like a suite at the Bellagio. We have never been there but we are thrilled that we get to enjoy our beautiful bathroom every day – better than a vacation. Our goals from the start were to try to make our bathroom more functional and improve the look and quality of the room. The existing bathroom had a tiny off the shelf fiberglass shower, a huge underutilized linen closet and an enormous platform with a small sunken bathtub which blocked access to the windows so you had to crawl into the tub to put the shades up/down and some odd wall angles. We also wanted to get rid of the nasty carpet and replace the failed picture windows with some windows that could be opened for better airflow ventilation. From the start April worked with us to figure out a way to utilize our space more effectively. We removed the tub platform and replaced it with a standalone tub and we robbed a little bit of space from the huge linen closet and took an unused triangle of space from the clothes closet to allow for a much larger, nicer shower space. We began our project in mid-September and completed before Thanksgiving. We were certainly thankful to be back to normal and are very grateful to have a lovely updated upstairs. The only issue now is that is nicer upstairs than downstairs.
We would recommend April to homeowners looking for a reliable, straightforward contractor who follows through with what she says she’ll do, keeps clients informed, is responsive, cooperative and has quality subcontractors doing her work.
Our experience with Nip Tuck was everything we hoped for. They helped us remodel (from top to bottom) our 1950’s kitchen to our vision of an open, beautiful cooking space, and enjoy the company of family and friends sitting in our new breakfast nook. Their contractor Marv was an expert, and our cabinets came out gorgeous! The professional staff of women behind the company was awesome. Their designer Joy helped us decide on our granite, tile, flooring, appliances and fixtures. I felt taken care of completely. April is the owner, and when she showed up the first day with her schedule & calendar to show us what was to be expected we were skeptical at first. But they didn’t disappoint. Her assistant Kari was here almost every day to make sure everyone knew exactly what to do. We were impressed by the workmanship and how respectful everyone was in our home, and made sure they always cleaned up at the end of the day. We LOVE our new kitchen and thank Nip Tuck for fulfilling our vision and more!
I had the Nip Tuck team come in and do multiple things in my home. They created a new closet for me in my upstairs rec room, put in granite counter tops in my kitchen, changed out the sink and faucets, and gave me lighting in multiple areas, had a new rug put in as well as a new stove. I needed professional craftsmen from multiple disciplines. Nip Tuck provided that. The work went smoothly and I am very please with the over all result. April’s team is very professional and helpful and you know what is going to happen and when. I would work with her team again in a heartbeat.
Nip Tuck Remodeling was recommended to us as a superior company to consider to do our master bathroom remodel. We were not disappointed. We combined our old master bathroom with a smaller adjacent one to make a larger bathroom.
Both bathrooms were totally demolished and we had to relocate to a guest room area until the project was completed. They estimated that the project would take seven weeks. We received a detailed budget and weekly calendar. Both were very accurate. We were on schedule and completed the project as promised. The only change orders were owner added work and a small unexpected change. The change orders were less than 2 percent of the project including those added by us. April is great to work with, professional, knowledgeable, and accessible. Her staff and sub contractors were all excellent. The tile work is exceptional as was the work of her carpenter whose finishing work was outstanding. All were respectful of our house and family, polite, on time, and kept the project area clean and orderly as possible. We would definitely recommend Nip Tuck Remodeling and would use them again should we have a project needing their expertise.
We had the Nip Tuck team do a master bathroom remodel for us. Both my husband and I interviewed various other contractors in bidding process, but the NIP Tuck team won by leaps and bounds.
That service continued into the design, selection of products, and installation process also.
April is wonderful at working with you to get you what you want in the project, keeping the project on track and communicating with you as the project continues.
I have recommended Nip Tuck to numerous people and will continue to in the future. If I ever need remodeling work done in the future I know who my first call will be too.
Nip Tuck remodeled our master bathroom and closet. From our first meeting we had confidence in April Bettinger and her very organized approach to understanding our needs and budget and then helping to scope the process accordingly.
Nip Tuck’s vendors and tradespeople were a delight to work with and each performed as promised with very few call backs or change orders. Once the schedule was set, there was positive progress each work week until the project was done. In eight weeks of construction there were only a couple of days when no trade was on site and that was generally due to the preceding trade finishing earlier than expected. Our bathroom is beautiful, functional, and was constructed within the budget we agreed to at the beginning; except of course for additions that we requested after the fact. We are happy to recommend Nip Tuck.
I’m an Interior Designer in the greater Seattle area. I have been assisting clients in selecting, and also working with their contractors for over 15 yrs. I have to say that I have never been as impressed by the contractors “process”, as I am with April and the team of Nip Tuck.
From the moment of our first meeting it was clear that my clients were going to get a service beyond the norm! Her precise ability to bid the job is awesome. When she says on time and on budget – she means it and has the tools to make it happen! I hope to work with her again soon! Heather – hsMAC Design
Nip Tuck completely designed our new kitchen, gutted our old kitchen, fixed some major structural problems which we only became aware of at that time, and installed a new, beautiful kitchen that worked and looked beautiful.
All of this was accomplished with the most excellent craftsmen and women, on budget and a few days earlier than projected. I have never heard of a kitchen remodel going so quickly, so organized and so effortlessly (at least on our part)! I recommend Nip Tuck to anybody who will listen. My husband is a project manager in another field and was blown away by April’s organization and communication. Steve was our contractor and his attention to detail and professionalism did not cease to amaze us. It’s tough to find this kind of quality. We are blessed to have found it.
