Allied Kitchen And Bath — Warning
I am writing this posting to warn everybody so they can avoid the heartache and unnecessary expenses that I incurred by using this company: Allied Kitchen and Bath located at 616 West Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311, Ph. [protected]
This company remodels kitchens and bathrooms. They also install windows and flooring. I used this company to remodel my master bathroom due to mold approximately 4 years ago. Unfortunately, due to Allied’s poor quality of work, I spent several thousands of dollars in repairs and I may have to re-modeled my bathroom again due to the poor quality of their work and poor materials that they sold me at extremely high prices.
Before they sold me my bathroom, Allied Kitchen and Bath had an excellent sales pitch. They bragged that they had been in business for many years and will be there for me if there is a problem in the future. This is false! In my experience, once they have your money, you are on your own!
My problems started during the construction of the bathroom. I found them to be a nightmare to deal with. My price kept rising with their “change orders.”
My even bigger problems began after the bathroom was completed. I noticed immediately that the grout in my new shower was washing away. Within a few months, the grout was turning black. I also developed mold in the shower window. Allied Kitchen and Bath never put marble around the window inside my shower; they left drywall. I called them regarding both of these problems. Allied responded to me that marble in the window was not included in the price of the bathroom and I would be charged to have someone from Allied fix these problems. I had to hire my own marble contractor to fix these issues. For the next few years, I had to re-grout the shower floor and part of the walls every few months because the grout kept turning black.
Recently, I consulted an expert marble contractor who advised me that water was trapped beneath the shower floor and that the only way to correct this problem was to rip out the floor and lower walls. I then hired this marble contractor. When the floor was ripped out, he found that Allied Kitchen and Bath never installed the shower correctly. They installed the shower walls before the shower floor. The marble contractor told me that whenever a shower is installed the shower floor must be installed first. The shower walls are then installed after the floor. In my case, since Allied did an improper installation, water got trapped beneath the floor. He also pointed out that my shampoo niches and tub platform had also been done incorrectly as well.
My brushed nickel spa parts are also discoloring and spotting.
Before I ripped out my shower floor, I contacted the owner of Allied Kitchen and Bath. His offer was to re-grout my shower at a cost to me of several hundred dollars.
In my opinion, beware of this company. In my opinion, they are one of the worst, most dishonest, and expensive companies that you can find in South Florida! Please do not forget how my experience with them demonstrates the quality of their work and how they do not stand behind what they sell.
