I recently hired Sowards Contracting Services to replace sub floor and flooring throughout most of my house. When Josh Sowards and I first met, he asked what kind of floors I wanted...I had no idea I just knew the floors were warped and dangerous. He said he had something in mind and that's what I went with....no regrets! I let him do his thing, never saw a sample, and I could not be more pleased. Josh is not only a contractor, he is a designer, he is honest, caring and takes pride in his work, he really cares about his customers. I will absolutely hire him in the future and I highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Josh Sowards for making my house a home again.

I received quotes from 4-5 different contractors to extend my deck and drop in a hot tub before deciding on J&M. I really appreciated how fast J&M came out to give me a quote as well as the fact that they provided me a sketches of three different ways they could do the job. Their price was also very fair and reasonable. Josh and Max are a father/son team who are prompt, professional, nice, and do great work. I also appreciated that both are military veterans and this sealed the deal for me! I loved the work they did and plan to use them for future projects!

I FIRST BECAME ACQUAINTED WITH DARRELL THREE YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS DOING SOME WORK ON MY NIECE'S HOUSE IN LITTLE ROCK. SHE WAS A FIRST YEAR PHARMACY STUDENT WHO HAD BOUGHT A HOUSE IN LITTLE ROCK WITH THE HELP OF HER PARENTS THAT NEEDED SOME REPAIRS AND DARRELL WAS RECOMMENDED HIGHLY TO HER. SHE WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE WORK HE HAD DONE FOR HER. WHEN THE TIME CAME FOR MY HUSBAND AND I TO HAVE A NEW ROOF INSTALLED ON OUR HOUSE, WE REMEMBERED THE WORK DARRELL HAD DONE FOR HER AND GOT IN TOUCH WITH HIM FOR WORK ON OUR HOUSE. IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS HE HAS PREFORMED SEVERAL PROJECTS FOR US INCLUDING REPLACING THE ROOF, INTERIOR PAINTING, REMOVING THE BUILT-IN SHOWER IN THE MASTER BATH TO REPAIR PLUMBING IN THE WALL SPACE AND THE MAKE-OVER OF TWO ROOMS IN OUR HOUSE. ONE HAS BECOME A CLOSET AND THE OTHER HAS BECOME A LIBRARY, INCLUDING A BUILT- IN COMPUTER DESK, SHELVING AND RELATED WORK. ADDITIONALLY, WE HAD PAINTING AND REPAIRS DONE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE WHERE THERE HAD BEEN LEAKS AND TERMITE DAMAGE. WE HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH DARRELL'S DESIGN WORK, CONTINUING THROUGH THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS AND WOULD RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY. DARRELL WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL TO ME WHILE HE WAS IN OUR HOUSE, OVER AND ABOVE THE PROJECT HE WAS WORKING ON. WE HAVE LAUGHINGLY WONDERED WHAT THE NEXT JOB WOULD BE - HE IS JUST SUCH A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH.

    Goes above and beyond EVERYtime. Takes every job seriously, from basic clean up, to laying sod or building decks. I can say that I've not seen anyone who takes manicuring and cleaning a property so seriously. And just a great group of guys, to boot. Recommend them highly!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
