Team Hatfield Rescues Botched Veteran Bathroom Remodel
Jack Baker is a disabled veteran residing in the Dallas suburbs. He received a grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs to install a walk-in shower and hired a contractor who was not a Dallas NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) member. This contractor claimed to have done many similar projects, but shortly after construction began, it became evident that the subcontractor he hired was not equipped to handle this work.
Three weeks into the project, Mr. Baker expressed his dismay at the contractor’s work and decided he needed an expert to fix the mess that had been made. He called up Hatfield Builders to come take a look at the disaster in his bathroom.
Upon inspection, Chad Hatfield saw that there was really nothing right about the work that had been done. The shower pan would have never held water and the bench was improperly installed. There was thinset mortar all over the floor in the bathroom (even down the toilet!) and bedroom, which meant the bedroom floor also had to be replaced.
How Hatfield & NARI Got Involved
Team Hatfield quickly got to work and contacted the Dallas chapter of NARI. The association reached out to its members and multiple contractors generously contributed their services, alongside some manufacturers, including Kohler, who provided product donations. The City of Mesquite even waived permit fees for the job.
It was incredible to see the remodeling community come together to rescue this botched project to get Mr. Baker the bathroom he was originally promised. We are happy to report that Mr. Baker’s bathroom is now complete and, most importantly, safe.
