Now that’s a tile floor. Come on man!

Hello there!

This floor was installed for one of my best friends, and it came out AWESOME.  Kyle and his wife picked out the greatest colors and after we finished this basement remodel it was just quite simply stunning.  We are almost done…just a few more details to add to the wet bar and new bathroom…but look at this floor!

It looks good even before the grout!  Just for reference, here the same basement before we got started:

There’s a lot more to the amazing new space which has tons of new light, a lot of storage rooms, a wet bar with island social table, new bathroom and closets.  It’s a great example of KC Key Solutions working with great customers like these – the end result was above expectations.

Have a good weekend, Ryan

Double doors. How about you just close that hole up in the side of the house Ryan?

Hello there and good afternoon!

Yes, we are at it again here at KC Key Solutions.  Need an appointment?  Set up a no-obligation appointment for a free estimate now!

We’ve been doing a lot of different projects for customers all over Kansas City, and we are just getting warmed up for the holiday season.  Typically winter is a slower period of construction companies like KC Key Solutions, but it appears that we are going to be busier than expected.  We’ve got 6 offices to build in a large warehouse, another house to paint, a basement to remodel, a door to install, some waterproofing to be done on a basement wall – plus some other big projects that are starting to fill our schedule.  It’s fantastic…thank you to all of our customers for the business.

Here’s a recent project on flip house that we finished; this house had somewhat of a
“bay” window, but we simply boxed it in, extended the cantilever floor and installed french doors.  BAM!

Here I am contemplating the situation, it’s a good thing it wasn’t raining:

Here’s the finished product from the outside:

Now it’s just time to add some steps, finish the trim, paint the house, and get it on the market.  Flip houses don’t do much for us until they are SOLD.  That’s how I feel about it anyway 😉

Have a great day, and remember we can make a mess at your house too if you’d like!  (We always sweep up!)

Take care, Ryan

 

 

Speaking of tile installs, look at this floor we finished!

I just got done blogging about a few tiles that we installed in a customer tub shower enclosure…but now let’s take a look at a few bigger projects that we have just completed!

It’s not always the most comfortable being on your knees for extended periods of time, but after a few huge tile jobs it seems that I’m starting to toughen up a bit.  Here’s a kitchen and dining room tile install that we completed a few weeks ago, and it turned out great.  In fact, this was a “flip house” and it sold quick.  A few upgrades and modifications – it’s amazing what a facelift will do for a house:

There are multiple steps to installing a large ceramic or porcelain tile floor – and the key is the preparation.  It’s typical with most projects, but a level floor makes all the difference.  This floor needed a complete underlayment and backboard installed, mudded and prepped before we could get to the tile floor lay.  It made all the difference.
