Schluter Systems

Here at ADR Builders we are always looking for new ways to improve our craft and provide a superior finished product to our clients at the lowest price possible.  Recently we have begun using the Schluter tile backer and shower waterproofing system.  Schluter provides a wide range of products to increase the lifetime of tile installations while guaranteeing a waterproof and vapor resistant shower.

Water leaks are a major problem for homeowners and even small leaks can lead to serious rot and mold issues over time.  If your old shower leaked why would you put in a new one using the same method?  By utilizing this comprehensive system we can eliminate those problems.

Another large part of their product line is accessible showers.  Designing and building a bathroom using universal design principles ensures that you will have a bathroom that is functional and usable for your whole family now and in the future.  For more information, or to see a the bathrooms we have done in the past, visit our website or give us a call!

Baltimore's Best Remodelers

In an article in the March 2014 issue of Baltimore magazine ADR Builders was named one of the top 10 home-improvement companies in the Baltimore area.  Here is how they judged the myriad of renovation companies out there:

"Most of our picks are design-build operations, and all have demonstrated great attention to detail, the ability to solve unusual problems, solid communication with clients, and have earned the respect of their peers in blind project-award competitions judged by other builders."

It is great to be recognized and we would like to thank all of our past and future clients for allowing us to fulfill your dreams and making what we do possible.

Top Remodeling Trends of 2014

We've been polling our design crew at ADR Builders and have come up with the three best new remodeling trends for the start of 2014...

1. - The U-Socket

   Digital devices reign in most households, so the new U-Socket wall plug has two built-in USB ports to power devices including smart phones, gaming devices, digital cameras, and tablets. The U-Socket also has a smart sensor that allows it to shut off when the device is fully charged.

2. - The Spa Shower

    More and more people are forgoing a tub and opting for a large and luxurious walk in shower.  Features like large niches and benches, multiple shower heads and frame-less glass enclosures make your bathroom feel like a spa retreat.  Heated tile floors are another very popular luxury addition.

3. - Open Floor Plans

   Our world is becoming more and more social and interconnected, home design reflects that.  Many people value an open floor plan, merging kitchen, dining and living areas into one space.  Especially in urban environments where rooms can be tight, this type of design is a great way to squeeze as much breathing room as possible out of a small space.
