With the check for the last payment of my bathroom renovation project enclosed, I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that you that working with your design and construction teams far exceeded my expectations.  Chuck, Ana, Ryan, David and Manny were a pleasure to work with on this project and they represent your firm and their professions well.

With this being my first home renovation project, I already had some reservations about it.  And, hearing the experiences of friends and colleagues with similar projects only multiplied my misgivings.  In hindsight, I can say the smartest step I made in this project was to walk into your showroom in December and start working with your team.  Each of them entered my project when I was about to start the construction phase and a number of decisions had yet to be made.  Each of them stepped in and their work maintained the continuity we were trying to recapture.  They all provided a degree of professional and polished insight, experience, expertise, and advice that was truly unexpected and gave me the reassurance I needed to move forward with my project.  I truly believe that their efforts to truly understand client’s needs beyond blueprints and schedules makes your firm standout as unique.  The results of their efforts are very impressive and I’ve received compliments for the redesign and reconstruction.  Indeed, I would recommend your team without hesitation.

I am hopeful that sometime this spring, I can start planning a kitchen renovation project with your team.  Please convey to everyone my appreciation for all of the help to me and my good wishes for a superb year ahead.

Got my kitchen done by Bradco last year and everyday I walk into it my kitchen I still cant’ believe how lucky I am to have gotten my dream kitchen.  My designer Angela first and foremost was a great listener.  My top priority besides having a nice look was having organization space where everything is onhand.  I became so sick and tired of tupperware all over the place, lids to pots and pans with no real place to put them, a corner cabinet where all the important stuff gets stuck in the back.  That was the focus of my kitchen and I can’t tell you how easy cooking, cleaning and organizing is in my kitchen now.  (and less expensive than the shrink,  Angela really was a good listener!) My husband and I saved for this kitchen for a long time, and felt that with the economy we were gonna be living in our home for a long time, so we might as well make the best of it.  I still didn’t have the hugest budget and Angela helped cut down things that I really didn’t need in order to meet the budge and still get my dream kitchen.  Thanks Bradco!

Yelp Review By FreshEvents L.

This is by far the best Kitchen and Bath showroom in Los Angeles.

They have a great blog that caught my eye, the featured article was on Custom Green Cabinetry in Los Angeles. A topic that I am not that familiar with in general, but I do like to support sustainable design, so I read on and eventually went into their showroom to have a look around.

Great selection and nice designers on site, available to help me through finding some cabinets for my mothers kitchen renovation project.

This is a great Kitchen and Bath showroom in Los Angeles and I would be happy to recommend their services and products, especially their custom cabinets to my friends and family.

Yelp Review By Sara V.

My Dad is 76 going on 25 :) but he is slowly getting older and needed to have his tub somewhat customized to help him get in and out without falling. It really scared me the last time he fell and I really got sick of it. Bradco is in the nieghborhood so dragged dad with me to find out what options we have or if they could even direct us to what were needed to go. My dad was very weary of any type of construction in his house. The mess, not knowing who was going to be working there, in short he would have rather kept the dangerous tub the way it was. I wasn’t having it.

Thank G-d I went with my instincts and walked into Bradco.. Long story short we met with a designer, Rachel and she turned our ugly tub into a beautiful walk-in shower. Rachel added a bench, and chrome bar for my dad to hold on to. All within budget. I am happy and best of all my dad’s  bathroom looks amazing and is SAFE!!!!
Thanks Bradco’s hard work and cleanliness dad wants to redo his kitchen and you know where we are coming!!

1. Problems happen, but its how the problem is solved. A+ for BKB
2. The installers were absolutely immaculate. They treated my father’s home with respect. Everything was clean and in order throughout  the whole installation. This probably the reason they have been in business for 20 years
3. Great staff and the owner Michael is very friendly and gave his input in our job even though we did not have a high budget.

Yelp Review By Joyce G.

I recently moved into a home and am working on my kitchen. One day, I visited a few showrooms for ideas, and just happened into Bradco. They seem to have a large staff and all have been very helpful, especially the owner. Their selection of all materials for the kitchen is terrific. I fell for a table and benches that they use there in their conference room. The moment I saw it, I knew that was what I wanted in my dining room and I am now the proud owner of a beautiful custom-made dining set.

Insider Pages Review By John H.

As good as it gets

We had our kitchen done by Bradco some time ago. One of the drawers did not close properly anymore. I did not get to call them right away and when I called they where closed already so i could not talk to anyone in person, so I left a message on the general mailbox. It was on a Friday. I did not expect a call till the week after, but the next day in the morning we got a call from Michael the owner himself. He remembered who we were and assured us that he would send someone out to look at the problem. Already on Monday we got a scheduling call. One of their installers came out looked at the problem, the drawer was apparently off the track, fixed it and that was it. No charge, no hassle, no headache. These guys are great

Citysearch Review by Karen6248

It’s been eight months since we gutted and remodeled a full kitchen, master bath, and powder room, plus assorted other changes to our home, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We even still love the contractor – and how many people can say that after a major remodel?

Our successful experience started with a design consultation at Bradco to discuss ideas for a new kitchen. We had done a major remod on a previous home a few years ago and were still stinging with annoyance and disappointment at the workmanship and the impossibility of getting the job finished. Needless to say, we were gun-shy!

The Bradco designer worked within our stated budget and never tried to “sell up.” When choices were made to upgrade, the decision was always initiated by my husband or me. One thing that surprised and delighted us is that we spent significantly less money for this kitchen than we did with the other contractor, but the quality of materials and installation we got this time are far superior.

We decided to have B&R, the contracting end of the Bradco “family” do our entire remodel, and there was never a moment’s hesitation about the integrity or skill of each man who worked in our home. Although we weren’t living there yet, the B&R men still attempted to keep the place as tidy as the circumstances would allow.

Much to our surprise, Eli, Many, Julio, and all of the others involved in the construction management and on the job labor showed up when they said they would – again, quite remarkable in this field.

We love using our kitchen and baths, and we still haven’t gotten over admiring the results. Of course, like with any other venture such as this, there’s been the occasional need to tweak or fix something. We’ve marveled at the speed of the response from both Bradco and B&R and the good cheer with which they approach any of our subsequent requests. And this is many months since the last invoice was paid in full.

In re-reading what I’ve written I fear I must sound like a shill for the company. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Rather, we just feel so grateful after our earlier remodel experience to have found an organization which does high quality work at reasonable prices, and with the follow through we all want when investing so much time, money, and effort into our homes.

Pros: Responsive, skillful, talented staff

Cons: None
