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.

    I also did a remodel of my master bath and used Allied Kitchen & Bath. I did my research before hand and part of that research included browsing the internet where I did in fact stumble upon the complaint to which I am responding. After several meetings with my designer Ann and meeting the entire staff of proffesionals I decided that Allied was the right fit for my project. Upon every visit to thier showroom they made me feel like family; as if I was a guest in their home. Their thoughtful service did not stop once construction began either. Every member of their team from the installers to the clean up crew was courteous and respectful. Every day after their work was finished they carefully cleaned and taped off the area under construction to protect the rest of my home from dust and damage. Ann Morris (a designer at Allied and also a well recognized expert in the design industry, published in every major magazine and a national speaker) was my liaison through the entire process. She took careful consideration for every detail from the style of the faucets to the pattern in the tile. Not only did my bathroom come out looking more lovely than I could have imagined but the entire process from design to completion was a joy. I have found the products that they specified and installed to be of excellent quality as was their craftsmen ship in putting the project together. Their experience and professionalism made me confident that the job would be done right, and it was. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking to do any kind of work in their home. In fact I plan to do my kitchen in a few years and will surely use Allied. Kitchens, baths, closets, library's, home office... they can do it all with class.

    The saying “you can’t please all the people, all the time” is so true. This client made this complaint, Four (4) years after her project was completed. We remodeled her master bathroom with a permit from the city, we received all our required inspections. We we’re paid in full when we received the final inspection from the city, by a very happy client in 2005. She called us back, after having someone else come out, who made changes to the work we performed. They messed up and she wanted us back to fix the problem. She filed the complaint, only after we wanted to charge her, to redo the botched job done by someone else.

    Allied Kitchen and Bath is family owned, providing full concierge service, in business for 25 years in the same location. We have one of South Florida’s largest boutique designer showrooms.
