Open Kitchen Concept in Palmetto Bay

Completed kitchen with open concept design

Rausa Builders Corp. remodeled this kitchen to an open kitchen concept. The old kitchen had melamine cabinets, a tile countertop and 2 dividing walls (separating the kitchen, dining & living rooms). The new kitchen layout required removing those walls to unite the kitchen and living room into the open concept. Relocation of plumbing and electrical connections was also required to accommodate the location of the new appliances and lighting.

The homeowners decided on new Italian kitchen cabinets with wood grain base cabinets and high-gloss white wall cabinets. The cabinets were accented with a 3cm solid white Quartz countertop, a mosaic glass backsplash and a stainless steel toe kick (bottom part of cabinet). A Blanco® Under-mount Sink was installed with a Delta® Touch Faucet.

The lighting was an important factor in bringing together this open kitchen concept. The interior lighting upgrade included recessed light fixtures and under cabinet lighting. Increased natural lighting was also part of the equation and this was improved by replacing a solid exterior door with a French Door and Side-Light.

Floating Vanity & Master Bathroom Remodel

Double floating vanity with quartz countertop & porcelain wall planks

The owners of this home in Miami Lakes wanted to remodel their master bathroom with a floating vanity and a frameless shower enclosure. Rausa Builders Corp. removed an interior wall separating the vanity area from the water closet (toilet & shower), converting the bathroom to a more open space.

We then installed porcelain & travertine tile on the bathroom walls and travertine tile on the floor. A double floating vanity (aka wall-mounted vanity) with a quartz countertop was installed over the porcelain plank wall tiles. The shower features a frameless glass enclosure, a modern linear drain, rain & hand shower heads.

When the owners of this South Miami home needed a local roofing company/contractor, they contacted Rausa Builders Corp for their roof replacement needs. Their existing flat tile roof had gone through several patch jobs to extend it’s life, but repair was no longer an option.

The homeowners chose the Bel Air Light Gray Range flat cement roof tile which features various light gray tones creating a beautiful blend of grays, giving the home a refreshing look.

If you also need a local roofing company, contact us through our online form and one of representatives will contact you to schedule an appointment.

Rausa Builders Corp. recently completed the open kitchen design in Kendall. Opening up the kitchen required knocking down an interior wall and relocating an interior door. These modifications helped amplify the space, giving the new kitchen an open & inviting feel. Removing the interior wall allowed for installation of the Kitchen Counter Peninsula.

The Shaker style kitchen cabinets were complimented with a White Quartz Countertop and Stainless Steel Appliances.

This modern u-shaped kitchen remodel in Kendall, Florida is part of a complete interior remodel we are currently finalizing. The complete interior remodel was split into 2 phases in order to allow the homeowners to reside in one half of the house while the other half was under construction.

The kitchen features Espresso Omega Shaker Cabinets around the kitchen perimeter with White Quartz Counter Top and mosaic glass backsplash. The perimeter cabinets also have 4 accent cabinets with aluminum doors and clear glass to match the stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, wall oven and microwave.

The island at the kitchen center is made of Blue Omega Shaker Cabinets with a beautiful Azul Bahia Granite Counter Top (Blue Granite).

New Dimensional Shingle Roof in West Miami

We recently installed a new Tamko Heritage Dimensional Shingle Roof at this home in West Miami. The homeowners chose the perfect color & style to compliment their home. Certified roofing contractors, Rausa Builders Corp, stripped down the roof to the decking, removing all old shingles and roofing paper and installed new 30 Felt and Tin-Cap the same day. The home was left water tight while awaiting Tin-Cap & Shingle-In-Progress inspection. After passing these inspections the new dimensional shingle was installed and final inspection was called. All debris from the job were hauled away and disposed of as with all of our roof replacement projects.

The gallery below shows before, during and after photos of the new dimensional shingle roof installation.

REO Roof Replacement in Hollywood

Below are photos of a Real-Estate-Owned (a.k.a. REO) roof replacement project Rausa Builders Corp. completed in Hollywood Florida. Rehabilitating an REO property or investment property requires preserving the property as well as preparing it for re-sale.
A thorough roof inspection showed the shingle portion to be water tight, with a 10+ year life expectancy, while the flat roof had reached it’s end and needed to be replaced.

Small Bathroom Remodel in Palmetto Bay

New Shower & Vanity

This small bathroom remodel was part of a complete interior remodel in Palmetto Bay. The original bathroom space was poorly divided, creating a cramped space. Rausa Builders Corp. removed unnecessary walls and relocated the vanity, shower and toilet to make better use of the small bathroom space.

The new shower features porcelain wall tile with a mosaic glass tile accent and a frameless sliding glass shower door. The vanity was replaced with a smaller floating vanity and relocated to the center of the bathroom.

Decking & Flat Roof Replacement

Cap sheet installation

The homeowners of this property in North Miami postponed their flat roof replacement for too long. This allowed water to penetrate through the roofing paper, causing excessive damage to the underlying decking which required replacement as well.

The gallery below shows before, during and after photos of the roof replacement process. You will also see the new decking installed prior to the 75 Felt and Cap Sheet.
