S&D Renovations Featured on HGTV's "Save My Bath" "Leaving the 70's Behind" Episode Highlights the Colaiezzi Family Bath Renovation

Save my bath!
Updated for the 21st Century!

This fascinating renovation project began with the encouragement of a friend of the Colaiezzi family - an avid HGTV fan. Wishing to renovate many aspects of their new home, Sharon & Stephen Colaiezzi of Emmaus found humor in their "hideously outdated" bathroom, no doubt a "hot" leftover from the 1970's with its Pepto Bismol colored vanity, wall of mirrors, pale pink sunken Jacuzzi and "modern" pink toilet. Stephen Colaiezzi was able to capture the "beauty" of their humorously outdated bathroom in his HGTV application to win a spot on an episode of "Save My Bath." The Colaiezzis were encouraged to select their own remodeler in the area - and, having had a positive previous experience with S&D Renovations, they gave Steve Dormann a call. S&D Renovations was enthusiastic about tackling the job. After winning the HGTV contest on "Ugliest Bath in the Tri-State Area," the Colaiezzis went through a long process of interviews and meetings until the project was finally approved and film crews arrived. The show producers emphasized that the focus of the project was to "have fun"! And, according to Sharon, it lived up to its hype! The design of the new bath was almost entirely decided by HGTV who aimed to showcase new pieces throughout the room. While Sharon acknowledges the project required an unbelievable amount of work and patience by all who participated, now that the dust has cleared, she has no regrets. She is grateful to all who dedicated so much of their time to complete the project on schedule.

S&D Renovations would like to thank the Colaiezzi family for sharing this exciting project with us. We'd also like to express our continued appreciation to our S&D employees who worked very long hours to get the job completed on time as well as our subcontractors who donated their time to help out with the show. Specifically, thanks go to Steve Nixon of Abbey Plumbing, Mark Appleby of Appleby Electric, Scott Snyder of Cool Breeze HVAC, and Rocco Perugini of Perugini Tile.

I will always remember where I was on September 11, 2001. We were sitting on my enclosed porch when your wife called to tell you that one of the twin towers was hit. Little did we know at the time how many lives would be lost that day. We continued our discussion, and I knew after that first meeting that S&D was the contractor I wanted to use for the renovation of our sunroom, kitchen and bedroom and addition of our master bath. Your presentation was detailed and straightforward and you made me feel that you understood what we wanted to achieve.

Here we are one year later enjoying our "new home". The finished project exceeded our expectations in every way. The quality of your workmanship is evident. You and your crew did a superb job and were a pleasure to work with. Most important, Steve, you are a man of your word. You delivered what you promised and we are thrilled with the results.
