My experience working with Brian and his team was tremendous. After soliciting bids from several contractors to repair and improve our backyard fence, I knew Clear Choice was the right vendor for the job. Brian's candor and transparency was critical in my selection and he didn't disappoint. The work was done to our specifications and exceeded our expectations. In fact, our neighbors saw the job they did and requested that they get to work on their fence too. Thanks so much!

Best contractors I’ve hired. I would definitely use them for future projects. My project was challenging and their quality of work was amazing. Punctual and left the work area very clean. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would.

We purchased our home 11 years ago as a 'fixer upper'. Though out the years we have worked with several contractors. Of all the contractors we've ever worked with, All Aspects Painting and Home Repair are the most professional company we've ever worked with. Their prices are reasonable and their attention to detail is impeccable! The cabinets and flooring in our kitchen looks great. Their work superceded my expectations. Chris was even nice enough to help me with some small DIY projects. They showed up bright and early and on time every single day. They also cleaned their work area before leaving every afternoon. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone without any hesitation. Thanks so much guys. We're looking forward to our next project and working with you again!

After the snow storm in December I had my back fence damaged by my neighbors pine tress. I had privacy fence and a retaining wall needing to be replaced, however with insurance not paying for much I needed to find a contractor that would do both at a reasonable price. My first quote was $10,000.00 ! Needles to say after going on Thumbtack I found Kris and I am so happy with everything he did and he is also doing my roof next. It’s hard to trust these days but you can trust him. He does not sub out his work and that says a lot as I I have had contractors in the past that did and it does not always turn out well.

Affordable and available immediately. I had demo from a house project that was clutter in my garage. Mark dispatched individuals that came out and hauled off the items I needed removed. They were quick and restored my garage to an uncluttered state again. Would highly recommend Alabama Handyman.

This is a contractor you can trust to do the job and do it right! I would be totally comfortable leaving Michael alone working in my home. He's that trustworthy. He's also a perfectionist and he will make sure the job is executed perfectly.

Mac Smith and his team at Madison Remodeling and painting completed a 3 week project including painting and general repair on our home. Mac took complete responsibility for all of his crew and the final product. He was always courtesy and professional. He communicated well with us, giving a timeline of his expectations for the job. He always answered our phone calls within minutes. We look forward to working with Mac in the future. Dr. & Mrs. Brian Roberts

We acquired Mr. Fikes for repairs at our home we were selling. We were impressed by his skill in the construction field at such a young age. The work was completed in a timely manner and we were satisfied with the results. Mr. Fikes will become a successful contractor as he continues to grow and learn.

After already hiring a contractor prior to hiring Double Oak Construction Group, I realized that we should had went with Double Oak to begin with. The initial contractors started the project but didn't want to return my calls after day three on the project after me giving them upfront money for materials. Double Oak, not only came in and fixed their mistakes, but didn't require any upfront money on this type of project and was able to still meet my deadline. Thank you guys sooo much for dedication and customer service. I wish I could rate 10 stars. Would defiantly recommend to others.

    I will work on something until I get it perfect. In most cases I know exactly what to do, but if there is ever a problem that cannot be fixed through the normal avenues of repair I will find a way to fix it. I really enjoy taking something that is basic or an unused space and turning it into something beautiful and giving it a new purpose.

    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.
