McManus Kitchen and Bath: Design Build Remodeling Contractor

 

Company History:

In a way, McManus Kitchen and Bath started back when the owner, Paul McManus was studying Architecture at the University of Florida. He took a job with painting contractor do help pay for school, wound up becoming a foreman and soon after started his own painting business: MKB Student Painting.

After graduating in 1996 he continued to run the painting company, which evolved into a handyman business and eventually a remodeling company. In 2015 Paul opened the McManus Kitchen and Bath showroom and became a design build remodeling company.

 

The Future of McManus Kitchen and Bath

One of the reasons we opened our showroom is because for years as remodeling contractors we were struggling to find modern materials and products in the Tallahassee area. This first showroom has been a real learning experience. Its helped us serve our clients much better but also shown us the possibilites. 

In 2021 we plan to open an expanded showroom and design center. It will be a plaza that provides access to some of the best vendors and subcontractors in Tallahassee, all in one location. 

In the mean time we will conntinue to invest in the training and development of our staff and provide the best remodeling experience possible to every homeowner we work with.

Paul McManus Owner of McManus Kitchen & Bath in Tallahassee FL Kitchen Cabinets Tallahassee

Paul McManus, Owner

Hello, I’m Paul McManus, the owner and operator of McManus Kitchen and Bath. I’ve spent a lifetime honing my craft  and have had plenty of adventures along the way.

I studied architecture at the University of Florida.  One of the key takeaways from that study was how the design of a space could change the way you feel, even the way you live. One of my favorite design quotes is this: “The quality of our spaces can lift the quality of our lives”.

The business and our clients are very important to me but I also enjoy travel and have visited more than 38 countries across the globe, many of them more than once. 

My first experience traveling overseas was a 4 year stint in the US Peace Corps, serving in a rural village in Zambia. 

Travel has helped shaped my worldview and my design aesthetic. 

 

Caitlyn Lead Kitchen Designer at McManus Kitchen and Bath in Tallahassee FL

Caitlyn, Lead Designer

Caitlyn started out working in a home improvement store while going to Florida State University. Though studying applied mathematics and computer programming, she always had an interest in how-to’s and figuring out how things work. After specializing in appliances, cabinets, and flooring, she began to apprentice under the store’s kitchen and bath specialist. This quickly turned into a passion as the individual pieces began to join together to create the whole picture. Her favorite part is working with the software to draft plans and be able to give a visual of what your kitchen or bathroom could be and then being able to see it happen. Caitlyn joined McManus Kitchen and Bath in November of 2017.

Andrew Bryner Project Manager at McManus Kitchen & Bath Tallahassee FL

Hello, my name is Andrew Bryner. Raised in the Tampa Bay area, I was introduced to the life of hard work at a young age. When I say “young”, I mean very young. I had what felt like a full time job passing out menus for your family restaurant  at the age of 12. In those early I learned the benefits of hard work and building relationships with the people around you.

After graduating high school, I moved to Lafayette, LA. There I attended a Seminary College and is the place where I met my wife. We moved to Tallahassee and, after buying a home and having 3 awesome kids here, you could say we have made roots in Tallahassee

As Project Manager at McManus Kitchen and Bath I have the opportunity to combine 2 things that I am passionate about: people and craftsmanship.

Worker’s Compensation Insurance

Workers comp is required if you have any employees. Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue their employer for the tort of negligence.

Owners of the company can file for exemption and some contractors get around the workers comp costs by making their employees partial owners of the company but this is a risky practice. All of our employees are covered under workers compensation and we require our subs to carry it as well.

Commercial Auto Insurance

A lot of contractors have their employees drive their personal vehicles to the jobsite. This can pose a real risk if they do any damage or harm with their vehicle on your property. We carry $1,000,000 of commercial auto on all our vehicles, including our jobsite trailers.
