Why We’re A ‘No-Cut-Corners’ Remodeler In Lancaster County


What It Means To Be A ‘No-Corners-Cut’ Remodeler
Here In Lancaster County, PA

Let’s Look At Some Simple Specifics
That Set MBC Remodeling Apart


Everyone knows in a very general eagle-eye-perspective sense that “home remodeling is complex”. It’s not a cake walk. The process, say for Bathroom Remodeling for example, is composed of a long list of large steps. Then each of those has a series of mini-steps and layers of materials if you want to do them just right.

What most homeowners don’t realize, is that there REALLY is a lot of room to cut corners in all that process. And it’s not always involving elements of your new bathroom that you’re looking at everyday.

The majority of corners cut and less-experienced sloppier contractors are in places you can’t see. But with each corner cut, you’ve got an issue; an issue that likely won’t pop up and make itself apparent right away.

It’ll take some time to manifest…

Here at MBC Remodeling, we’re wholeheartedly committed to cutting ZERO corners because we care about our customers and our reputation. We’re not in a hurry. We’re not hasty. We’re experienced and happy to take the time and extra steps needed for impeccable workmanship.


That said, let’s give you some specifics. Nothing too complex or scientific, but common sense steps any remodeler with a solid reputation is going to take to ensure you enjoy long-lasting high-quality results.

Corner #1: Gluing Subfloors

When was the last time you walked across a creaky floor? For homeowners, it’s like a thorn in the mind every time they hear it. In terms of subfloors, many subpar contractors will often stick with just screwing and nailing it down (both in older homes and new construction).

Imagine hearing a creaky floor in a New Home Addition! We go the extra yard by glueing it down, which goes a long way in preventing this situation.

Corner #2: Gluing Drywall To Ceilings

Similar to subfloors, so-called ‘quick & dirty’ remodelers will just screw drywall to the ceiling. This will likely lead to sagging, especially once the joints begin to break. We use screws as well, but only to help hold it to the ceiling while the glue we use dries and really keeps it up there properly.

This basically erases the chance of sagging (rather than trying to rely on more…and more…and more screws over time).

Corner #3: Securing Handrails & Banisters

Now let’s talk about handrails and banisters. We take the time to plan ahead so we can build the floor around them, and sink them in, really securing them to the floor. This is much better than setting them flush atop the floor. They’re far sturdier being secured to the floor joist than being screwed in.

Plus, imagine handrails leading into your New Remodeled Kitchen, where you want them to look amazing!

Corner #4: Waterproofing Before Laying Tile

When it comes to tile, there’s a lot that goes into clean, beautiful, and long-lasting results.

Something extra we like to do is waterproof the area before the tile goes down. It’s a high-quality liquid rubber substance that you roll on or paint onto the area – across the whole cement board – instead of just at the seams. It’s another strong layer of water protection.
