Jeremy was the BEST ... on Thumbtack he is labeled as a handyman but he literally can do anything. He was on time, professional and ended up doing all kinds of things when we moved in (installed 8 ceiling fans - some very high, hung heavy items on walls, moved light sconce/electrical box locations) and he was so fast and efficient. We had lots of different contractors here and he actually helped them out on occasion. So great to work with and a great economical choice. Highly recommend.

Ivan did such a great job. I had a time crunch and he was able to squeeze me in and did a fantastic job on top of it! I couldn't have asked for a more reliable and budget conscious contractor. I will use him again and again.

Dave was on time and on budget, This means everything! His work was quality and he is very professional. Responds quickly when texted or called. There is nothing worse than not having communication with contactors during a project. Arrived to look at job and started within a few days and was there until finished. As the owner and the person who bid the job he was also the person on the job every day with his crew. I would highly recommend him, being a superintendent for a mechanical contractor I don't just say things like this unless deserved.

I have a 2000 SQ house that was in a desperate need of paint. Nick was professional and got the job done and got it done right. I have seen a lot of paint jobs on houses that the color is weird or the way the painting was done but this was a great job. He worked well with the other contractors that were working on my house and they said that they liked working with him also. For any other painting job that I have I will ask Nick to do the work and I will be recommending him to anyone that needs painting work done.

I was reluctant to go through the perceived hassle of having a tech come out for an in-person estimate, but it was well worth it. Judd was fantastic!! He spotted an important issue (from a across the room) with a out-of-code valve that several others had missed. Further, Judd went out of his way to accommodate our difficult and short notice time/scheduling needs on 2 separate visits. He is extremely knowledgeable and getting the job done right is important to him. Costs were very reasonable and in-line for a licensed plumbing contractor.

James and his crew did an excellent job with our major irrigation and gravel installation project. They also fixed a few leaks, put in paver walkways, and gave us plenty of free advice. Their work was speedy and thorough, so needless to say we are as pleased as punch. We had multiple quotes from other landscapers, but HDK Lawns and More was the most responsive, easiest to work with, and all of it at a price much lower than their competition. James was consistently friendly and communicated with us at all turns. Even when we changed our minds or pointed out something we wanted done a bit differently, he did not bat an eye and was wonderful with jumping on the changes and working with us to give us exactly what we specified at no extra charge. Even little touches we had not specified like angling our walkway turns were completed perfectly simply as a matter of providing us the best quality work. We are keeping their information handy for any future projects because our experience with them was absolutely perfect. All my best to James and his company in the future!

Wow... great contractor! Ilie runs the company and does the majority of work himself with a few dedicated specialists (plumber, painter, etc.). He does the tile work himself. We hired him for a master bath remodel. On time, honest and on time. His prices were reasonable compared with some other quotes we received. But he's also a real old-world style craftsman dedicated to quality and pride in his work. We already are considering hiring him for another project. I was concerned initially because his regular website appeared offline, but it turns out he's so busy with referrals from Thumbtack and another site he doesn't even need to keep a separate site running since he can only do one job at a time. So glad we hired him!

I didn’t think there was much hope for my leaky, moldy outdated ceramic tile shower with some god-awful floor base that stained so bad. I have a decent house but this shower area was a nightmare. Well I really lucked out getting Ivan via Thumbtack. I heartily recommend him for any drywall, tile and grout creation you might want. He’s an absolute craftsman. He doesn’t just repair, he creates a new design look. Every time I look at my new shower area I am amazed and pleased to find everything is square and plumb, the tiles are cut and installed perfectly and the tile and grout color enhances the new chrome and glass door he picked out. As a matter of fact he picked out everything on account of I have no design sense and, I’m told, I may as well be color blind as to try to pick out something tasteful. No matter to Ivan. Since he knows what he is doing he picked out everything perfectly. He also took time to prepare all the surfaces and treat the area against mold before installing new waterproof drywall and a modern floor and drain area. The he artistically created a tile enclosure like no other I’ve see. It’s not that he increased the value of my home much more than I paid him; it’s not that he worked fast but careful and it's not the very fair price he gave me. It’s because I feel happily amazed when I enter the room and see his craftsmanship. That peace of mind hardly compares with the little he charged me compared to the result I got back. Bonus: He has a pleasing professional personality that is extremely rare in contractors these days. You can trust him to listen to you and still create a masterpiece.

I got a special deal from AAA for two hours of general contractor work from Global Prevention Services. We have a stucco wall that's about two feet high around a courtyard in front of our home that had a large crack in it, and two hours seemed about right for someone to fill in the crack and paint the wall. The man who came was eager to get the job done, gathered the filler and paint and went to work. Before he painted, he showed us the repaired seam and explained what he had to do since the crack was rather wide. He was competent, friendly and efficient, and if we need a contractor in the future, we won't hesitate to call Global Prevention Services.

Ethan has exceeded our expectations in every way and has been awesome to work with! Our project became far more complicated than expected and Ethan provided practical solutions along the way to get things done and he never hesitated to go the extra mile. Ethan has a calm and focused demeanor I found very helpful during what can be a stressful time as we prepared to remodel our home. Most importantly, the finished product was meticulous and has provided our contractors with a level of detail in our plans that's sure to produce exactly what we want for our home. EGB has earned my highest recommendation by over-delivering high quality results with great communication through the process and the utmost professionalism and a job well done!

I had a severe windstorm bring down a side Arbor on my home a few weeks ago, I was contacted by Alfredo a General Contractor through the Thumbnail Site in regards to an estimate to replace it. At that time I found out that the Arbor was improperly constructed, and the wood was severely rotten all the way through. Alfredo, and one of his crew members (Evan) provided Outstanding Customer Care to me and to my home. He provided me with a fair and honest estimate with all the labor and material cost included. With no hidden charges later to add on. I watch him and his crew member, take down and replace my Arbor with astonishing accuracy, to the exact measure. I watch Alfredo do math calculation in his head for this project like Einstein would have done. He raised the height of the Arbor to its proper height, attaching it to the fascia board in the proper manner, and not at the lowest elevation that it was originally in, and attached to my home. And wow what a difference it made to the side of my home. It is aestheticly pleasing, not only from the garden view, but from the street as well. Matching the design of my home perfectly! His Customer Care was above reproach, and not as I have dealt with less than honest and caring General Contractors over the years in this 1958 Vintage Home. I am so pleased and impressed with his services that I now plan to have him replace and repair a damaged Pavilion Deck that a so called general contractor that I hired last year to repair my Pavilion deck at that time, who used improper materials, measures, and calculations reparing it, that I fell through its flooring in early spring. I would highly recommend Alfredo and his Company to my neighbors, family, and friends... And I have every intention of doing so, as well as keeping his Business Card, well in hand! Thank You Alfredo, and your crew member. I have nothing negative to say in regards to this General Contractor! Only Praise. I'm adding the damage pictures now and will add the finish Arbor once its painted on Saturday.

Dave has done many jobs for me personally and have referred him to may friends and business associates. Work is guaranteed and he will always do the right thing to ensure the job is 100% to your satisfaction. Some of the jobs he has done for me is electrical, roofing, plumbing, drywall & painting, flat screen hanging and kitchen remodel. With Dave it's one stop shopping! No need to have several contractors to complete a job because Dave does it all. I highly recommend Dave for any task you may have.

5 star company! Had them take out our builder grade tub and twin sink, install new higher profile toilet and put in a large walk in shower with sprayers at both ends with center entrance. Narsay and Sammy Bello did a great job explaining their process, timelines and how to save expense with our selections. Their tile guy was phenomenal as well. After we agreed on price and timelines we decided to add some extras like new lighting fixtures we had purchased and two very heavy mirrors - they agreed to hang them at no additional charge. We also had them install backsplash in our kitchen area and it turned out much better than our expectations. We had selected tile already for it and Sammy took the time to go shop for something we might like better and we loved his choice. He took our tile back to return it as well. Two very hardworking and experienced guys that I'd recommend for a major master bath remodel or kitchen remodel. Our son liked the work and is considering doing a similar project and we recommended Venus Homes LLC to him as well.

Ali is a true professional! He and his crews totally remodeled a 2-bathroom, 2-bedroom pool house. He listens to his clients about what they wish to achieve, makes good suggestions, expertly designs a plan and executes the plan successfully and timely. He does not push his own agenda like so many architects and contractors. The passion Ali has for his work makes him an ideal partner in building and renovations.

We have not yet officially chosen Arcadia Design as our General Contractor, as we are obtaining a second opinion as part of our own due diligence, but I can say that it has been a pleasure to work with Michael to date. He is very knowledgeable in his field and very professional. He has answered all of our questions and has made this process thus far, very easy. I have no doubt that if we chose him for our contracting needs, we will not be disappointed!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.  

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.
