Standing Seam Roof in Palmetto Bay

Close up of metal roof

When the time came to replace their roof, the owners of this Palmetto Bay home decided to upgrade to a galvalume standing seam roof (aka metal roof). The new galvalume roof has a life expectancy of 45 Years, 150% longer than a tile roof. Of course, the cost is about 150% more as well. This project consisted of replacing the pitched and flat roof on the main structure as well as the pitched roof on the detached garage.

Once the old tile was removed and the decking re-nailed to Florida Building Code, a VersaShield® Fire Protection Barrier was installed. Then came the installation of the 24 GA galvalume metal roof giving the main residence & detached garage matching modern roofs.

Below is a gallery showing the installation process of the standing seam roof & flat roof.

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.

The following photos show the original layout and the completed small bathroom remodel:

This cabana bathroom remodel in Palmetto Bay was part of a complete interior remodel recently completed by Rausa Builders Corp. The existing bathroom had two partitions separating the vanity, toilet & shower areas that were removed to give the bathroom a more inviting feel.

A floating vanity was installed with a rectangular vessel sink and cultured marble countertop to match the new shower walls. The shower features a frameless clear glass enclosure, linear drain, rain shower and hand shower. The floor tile was replaced with 24x24in. Italian Porcelain Floor Tile. The exterior door was also replaced with an impact-resistant frosted glass door with door casing.

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.
