Having a corroded pipe is not a good thing. The contractor was able to come in and repair the issue without any other problems arising. Would definitely use this business again.

Summary Vicente was recommended by our realtor to prep our home for sale. He made the process very smooth for us and was extremely polite and professional in his demeanor (I would be happy to have him working around my children). Specifically, Vicente was aware of code requirements and helped ensure we were making our home up to code, completed all jobs we asked him to do at a very competitive price and noticed several additional items that were important to fix, gave us alternatives when appropriate and did a thorough and visually appealing job on everything he touched. He said he looks at a home from both the seller's and buyer's perspective and strives to make the result great for both parties. This was aligned with our objectives and we were very pleased with the outcome. I recommend Vicente highly and look forward to working with him again. Specifics Advised us on needed fixes, purchased all materials and completed the work in a timely fashion. Augmented work another contractor had not done well - ensuring vanity was attached safely to wall in case of earthquake, strongly attaching towel rack that was sagging, choosing and installing attractive knobs on a cabinet, replacing cheap plastic shower head that had broken within a month with a sturdy one that will last. Did very nice tile work around fireplace. Repaired and replaced compromised drywall, interior painting, electrical work, sealing wooden floor, cleaning rain gutters, added locking mechanism to shed, many final touches to make our home sparkle.

Jason was a breath of fresh air after being stood up by a couple of contractors. He was true to his word on when he would arrive for the estimate and when he would arrive to complete the work. I found him to be competent, knowledgeable, respectful, and with high integrity. I will hire him again for future jobs.

We had an interior door that wouldn't close at our rental. Shawn was highly responsive, the tenant seems to be pleased and it was taken care of within 24hrs. He sent photos of before and after and explained what the issue was as well as how he corrected it. ADDITIONALLY he was very clear on his pricing and sent a invoice stating 'paid' as soon as we remitted payment (via a very convenient app). This was the best experience we've had with a contractor in a long time - we'll definitely be keeping their number handy.

Skip did a series of tiny-to-small projects around the house. He replaced our front porch stairs, hung a porch swing, raised a threshold, installed a couple ceilings, lowered a peninsula cabinet, replaced an exterior door, installed a glass shower enclosure, etc. He did everything fabulously. He took on the subcontracting of some other work, too, and acted as the general contractor. His standard of quality was the same as ours. We are thrilled with everything he did. He was prompt and industrious in getting the work done. We would definitely use him again and have recommended him to others for similar work.

Chad was prompt giving an assessment and quote and performed quick and professional turnaround on a roof job, it was money well spent on protecting our home investment. It was one of easiest and problem free transactions we have ever had with a contractor and it was all done with never meeting him face to face since I am working remotely in Alaska bush. If you need a job done quick, painless, and professional give Chad a call.

First of all, I would like to thank the great people with Arctic Interiors. About 4 months ago pipe broke in my house. My insurance company said it wasn't covered by our policy. I called several contractors and all were out of my price range. I explained the situation to them and only Richard had the hart to take on the project with my budget. Not only did he fix all the damage he found some beautiful carpet for us. I know he did this job at a loss because my budget was around a 3rd of the price of all the bids I received although he never admitted it. He never once made us feel poor or treated us different than I imagine he treats any other customers. Also professional from start to finish. I only wish there was another star I could add. And thanks for the pens, my kids love them. Travis.

Cameron was everything one could possibly expect from a contractor. He was a consummate professional, punctual, timely with his quotes, fair, honest, hard working, and pleasant. I have referred him to several of my colleagues. I couldn't have been happier with his work product and would recommend him wholeheartedly.

    Kevin Postma did an excellent job on my new deck. We discussed the materials for the deck and a plan for the deck was worked out. I needed the approval of the Condo Association and they agreed on the plans for the deck. Kevin was on time every day for work. He selected contractors for the dirt that was needed for the foundation of the deck. The work was done in a timely and professional manner. He was very pleasant to work with.

    After an initial jobsite meeting and cost quote, I determined that Mountain High Contracting was an excellent alternative to the other contractor that I had interviewed and receivers a quote from. I have since contracted with MHC to put up a 14 ' high 14'x 40' shelter for my 38' fifth wheel RV. So far I am very pleased with MHC's professional, responsive, price and on time responses. Dustin and his crew are scheduled to start the foundation on Monday 8/13/18 and including time for concrete to cure and a week waiting for trusses, expect to have their work completed in 10 days. I will report on their progress as it occurs.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a general contractor?

    When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

    When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

    Why should you hire a contractor?

    Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

    Where should I start when remodeling a bathroom?

    Bathroom remodeling doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Before starting a bathroom remodel it’s crucial to know what you want and have a clear understanding of your maximum budget. If you’d love all marble fixtures but have $3,000 total, you will have to compromise. Being realistic about materials and money before you even contact a contractor will have you on the road to success. Here are some simple steps to follow in the planning stages of bathroom remodeling:

    • List your remodeling priorities in order of importance (e.g., 1. New shower head, 2. Replace flooring, 3. Install recessed lighting, etc.).
    • Calculate what you can realistically afford to spend on your bathroom remodel. Identify an “all in” price — meaning the absolute maximum you’re willing to pay, as well as what you’d prefer to spend.
    • Gather ideas from Pinterest about colors and finishes.
    • Research the costs of the materials and finishes you want and begin making choices about what is and isn’t possible to fit into your budget (once labor is included). If you’d like to stay under $10,000 total, but really love a $2,000 tub, plan to downgrade in other areas.
    • Request quotes from at least three reputable general contractors, share your vision and ideal materials, and work together from there.

    How do I plan a bathroom remodeling project?

    If you’re stumped on how to plan a bathroom remodeling project, it pays to hire a designer. This is especially important if you’re changing your bathroom layout in any way. Designers create contractor-friendly drawings indicating exactly where each tile and fixture will be installed, down to the light switches. This investment might cost you $300-$500 but save you significant frustration and miscommunication, while ensuring you get precisely what you want.

    If you’re going to do your own design, planning a bathroom remodeling project means being organized and planning ahead. Create a general outline of what you want and the budget you have. Identify the specific fixtures, tiles, paint and vanity you prefer. Get all this organized before requesting quotes from two to three reputable general contractors. Once you find the right pro, get a written contract outlining scope of work, materials that will be used, timeframe and payment schedule. Communicate clearly about when to order your materials so they are ready and waiting by the time the contractor gets the permits. Your job from here is to communicate clearly, pay the contractor as the work progresses, and enjoy your remodel when it’s done.

    How long should a bathroom remodel take?

    With proper planning and a good general contractor, your bathroom remodeling project doesn’t have to take forever. The construction phase of the project will always vary based on your scope of work, the square footage and the condition of your bathroom under the surface layer. Inevitably an 80-square-foot master bathroom with major changes will take longer than a 25-square-foot guest bath undergoing a minor renovation. For a smaller bathroom, a facelift — the industry term for sprucing up the surface layer (such as paint, vanity, tiles or light fixtures) but keeping the existing footprint of the space — may take five to eight working days, as long as there are no surprises like mold waiting when the old vanity comes out. A more complex bathroom remodel that revamps the shower area (customizing the plumbing, installing tile and changing the shower door), updates the flooring and cabinetry, and adds new paint and new lighting could take anywhere from one week to three weeks. A full bathroom remodel that guts the room, changing the footprint and moving the electrical wiring and plumbing lines, could take four to eight weeks or more. To keep your bathroom remodel on schedule, have your materials ordered and waiting, and don’t make any change orders once construction begins. Planning is key to keeping a bathroom remodel on schedule.
