Call Peter



My name is Peter Bales and, among other things, I’m a contractor living in Freedom, Indiana.  I started the business in Nashville, TN in 2008 and moved to a farm outside of Bloomington, IN in 2012.

Bathroom remodeling and tile showers are my specialty.  I exclusively use the Kerdi waterproofing system from Schluter Systems to make sure your shower is waterproof all the way to the shower head!

I get to work with some amazing people to help their dream project become a reality.  If you have a project in mind, please give me a call or email and we can chat about it.

EatonFinal“Peter created a beautiful shower for me. His work is clean, exact, and detailed, and he was very easy to work with. As we started the project, Peter was easy to communicate with, worked with my schedule, and communicated necessary information quickly and effectively. He patiently worked through all questions and suggested things for me to consider upfront. Once the plan was in place, he provided a clear and detailed contract outlining what he would supply, what I would supply, what work would be done on which days, what was within and not within the scope of the job, and how the payments would be structured through the duration of the work. He stuck to his schedule and plan, and left the work area tidy (and locked up for me so I wouldn’t have to worry about my pets getting into it) each day, and executed beautiful work. Luckily for me, he also had space in his schedule to adjust for the addition of a couple extra faucet installs I wanted to add at the last minute, which I really appreciated, and he was great about answering questions that I had as I peeked in over the span of the job. And when everything was wrapping up, he provided me estimates on future work I want done so I can gather the necessary materials and budget for the next projects. My shower looks beautiful and I’m excited to start my next project with Peter as soon as possible.” -Liz, Bloomington, IN

“I can’t say enough good things about Peters work. He was very particular how he put plastic on my stairs and carpet along with tarps in the garage not to track all the mess back into the house. His tile work was great. He gave me another idea that looks  much better than I had planned. His pricing was reasonable with others I compared as well.  I am done with all my remodel but would highly recommend Peter to anyone.  I wish I had known of him on  previous projects. You won’t be sorry. Working with Peter has been a pleasure. God Bless.”  -GeneAnn J.

ContemporaryWhiteShowerBase“Peter Bales built the shower of my dreams in March 2016.  He is totally amazing to work with – very approachable and responsive in the initial contacts.  He works with you and your style and does everything he can to make it happen.  He loves a challenge and helps you design what you want, not just some cookie cutter job.  Peter uses  top products and techniques, which resulted in both a beautiful and waterproof shower (which was one of my major objectives).  His craftsmanship is outstanding.  He thinks and measures everything through for the best functional and aesthetic effect.   And, he leaves your house immaculately clean at the end of every day.

Peter’s contract is straightforward, easy to understand, with very fair prices.  The contract includes estimates of the duration of the project, with the costs and the day-by-day tasks broken down in great detail.  Peter stuck to absolutely everything – no time delays and no cost over-runs.  This is almost unheard of among today’s contractors.

After doing my research, I knew Peter was the man for my shower remodel.  He is a totally professional, personable, honest and trustworthy individual.  I couldn’t be more thrilled with my new shower and with Peter.

The long and short of it all is that I would not hesitate to recommend Peter Bales for any of your home improvement projects.  He will make your dreams come true just like he did for me.”  -Joan M, Bloomington, IN


ShowerLinearDrain02“Peter’s precise artistic tiling and craftsmanship exceeded our expectations. We found his services to be dependable and according to our schedule and needs. We appreciated his cleanliness, designs, and innovative ideas. We highly recommend Peter and look forward to having him do future projects.” -Larry K. Spencer, IN


“Peter did a back splash ,very professional, I liked the fact he showed up on time, was always friendly to work with. He did a beautiful job on my kitchen, and never made a mess, kept everything clean all the time. It’s hard to find someone dependable, it was nice to find someone like peter.  Great guy.”  –David H, Bloomington, IN


“From the initial contact to the last day of the almost month-long job Peter Bales has been a joy to work with in every way. His communication, patience/flexibility, attention to every detail, advice, ideas and overall professionalism are outstanding. He is not the typical contractor that is anxious to move on to the next job or sends an employee to do the work that only cares so much about the finished product. I’m anxious to work with him again and I encourage anyone considering using his skills to ask Peter for my phone number to talk to me personally.” -Derek R, Bloomfield, IN


“Peter Bales did a complete bathroom remodel for us this spring.  He completely gutted our old bathroom and managed to double the floor space for us by reconfiguring the floorplan of the area outside of the bathroom.  The old bathroom was incredibly tiny, dingy, and outdated.  He put in a beautiful tile shower, new lighting, new exhaust, a new vanity and cabinet, floor tile, painted, even installed the towel bars and hooks for us!

Peter made the entire process very painless!  He was very helpful and patient as this was our first bathroom remodel.  He met with us initially to come up with a proposal.  He then met with us two more times as we changed our minds and had more questions for him!  He never made us feel like we were being silly or wasting his time.  He helped us decide where it made the most sense to spend our money and was very practical with things.  I never felt like he was trying to get me to spend more or stretch our budget to the limits.  One example was when we talked about shower doors.  When I mentioned our hard water, he agreed that not installing a glass door made sense as it would be very hard to keep clean.  Since he knew were going to do a curtain instead, he made sure to do a tile design in the shower that had the accent stripe high enough to be seen above the curtain.  Little things like that were nice for us – he knew what he was doing and knew what made sense – lots of things that I never would have thought about!   Emails were always answered promptly, too.  When he got started, he kept his materials neat and organized at the end of each day.  He often gave us emailed updates as we were not usually able to be home before he left for the evening.  He finished everything on time and on budget.  Peter is a very polite and honest person and we felt very comfortable with him working in our home.  I would highly recommend him!” -Sarah L, Spencer, IN
