As fairly new homeowners, during the first big rain of the season we found ourselves with a leak in our daughter's bedroom and lots of worries. I quickly requested some quotes from local contractors and was immediately contacted by Stephen. He was quick to schedule a day to come and evaluate repairs and get back out to get repairs done. Our drywall had to be replaced and we also found ourselves with another leak in the kitchen. His follow up was outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the service we received from Stephen, Jerry and their drywall contact. The repairs were completed in a timely manner and very professionally. Thank you again Box Construction!!!

Chris called to confirm our appointment the day before, and she showed up right on time. He got right to work on replacing a defective valve, relocated a sprinkler head, and repaired irrigation controller wiring. This guy really worked hard while he was here. One of the most pleasant contractors I have ever hired, he was professional, and he cleaned everything up when he was finished. I highly recommend Chris and the services he provides.

We had a small bathroom renovation planned. We requested 2 bids from contractors in the Thumbtack network: Top Knotch and another contractor. Both contractors bid very competitively. (We’d had prior bids from other contractors – not from Thumbtack - at 3 to 5 times the price.) Though Top Knotch was not the lowest bidder of the 2 Thumbtack contractors, we selected this company because they had a variety of skillsets that other contractor did not. In addition to the tile work, they moved a bathroom light, installed an exhaust fan, installed a medicine cabinet, repaired some drywall, could remove and replace the toilet, etc. We have a 1930’s home with hanky wiring and unsquared walls and unleveled floors. Mike was meticulous in his work and was able to overcome the unique challenges of this home. The mosaic rock backsplash (floor to ceiling) and the porcelain wood-look floor tile is beautiful. Mike and his assistant were always on time and worked a full day, every day until the project was completed. We were impressed that in this day of technology and constantly being “plugged in” to the world by cell phone, he didn’t drop everything to answer the phone every time it rang. His time in our home was spent on our project. Mike is very professional and meticulous in his work product. We’d use this company again and have plans to use him for our upcoming kitchen remodel. We’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking for quality work at a reasonable price. Rodney R.

I had a wood fence project which was quite complicated because one 20 feet long retaining wall had to be built before the wood fence installation. Tim took this hard project. He and his crews, Ryan and Nick were all hard workers. Every single day, they came to the job site on time, did everything they should do according to the construction code. Besides, Tim was very attentive to my needs and modified the original construction plan by adding one 6 feet long concrete block wall to the iron gate. I am very satisfied with his professional service. Tim is passionate about his job, which makes him outstand other contractors. I'd like to recommend his service to any other's project!

MARK IS MORE THAN A MERE HANDYMAN! He is an extraordinary craftsman! I hired Mark to reinstall a costly 30 x 40 recessed medicine cabinet, which had been haphazardly installed by a general contractor. He cut the drywall to raise the cabinet, because it had been installed to low, leaving little room for a faucet; built a wood frame for the cabinet, where one had not been built by the contractor; moved the plumbing lines; built a base for a new wall-mount faucet, before we had a counter-mount faucet; installed the medicine cabinet; made sure all was level; and closed the drywall whole. Mark then installed the rough plumbing for our shower, bathtub, and sink. Mark did a fantastic job! He is a gem! He has a GREAT personality, fantastic work ethic, very methodical, has an eye for detail, not afraid of a challenge, and is truly a master craftsman.

I submitted my request and Shawn was able to come by and give me a quote and do the work the same day. No other contractors that I spoke to that day called back like they said they would but Shawn followed up and showed up ready to work. I've already received so many compliments on the work that he did finishing my Quartz Stone Accent Wall. Thanks Shawn! I would recommend him for sure for other work and to others

Awesome!!! Integrity, Professionalism, and Quality. I reached out to Dave Gomez (DG Construction) to inquire about re-doing my backyard landscaping due to "letting it go" like many of us during the drought season. Dave responded to my request the same day to discuss my project. He communicated very professionally and was pleasant to speak with. He was very honest with me in conveying that due to his current workload, he unfortunately wouldn't be able to get to me for 4-6 weeks. He did, however, offer a reference to another contactor and was willing to personally get involved to provide oversight even though he was not getting paid to do so. This is unheard of in this day and age! In any event, when that reference fell through (too busy), he made it a personal goal to fit me into his schedule. Within two days, he came to my home, evaluated my needs, and provided me with a quote. He even offered me a Military Discount (Marine Veteran). Once agreed upon, he dispatched his team to my home and within 1 WEEK, transformed by backyard from a dead oasis to a beautiful, park like setting where my family could enjoy and relax (See Photos). During the process, his entire team was VERY CLEAN and orderly and made it a point to check in to ensure they were not disturbing the household in any way. Part of Dave's motivation to help me out was that I am a former U.S. Marine and have a special needs child that can really benefit from the peaceful setting he's creating for us in our backyard. He took this to heart and made sure to meet his commitments every step of the way. His customer satisfaction was legendary in that he welcomed various changes to the project as they came along (from my wife and I) and wasn't too concerned about "penny pinching". To quote his words, "My focus is delivering an experience to build lifetime customers and witnessing the positive outcome with them when doing so." I have to say that Dave has earned my business and respect moving forward and I would highly recommend him. There are very few contractors out there like him.....so get him while you can! :)

I am a General Contractor ,from Santa Barbara Area here for several upcoming projects we were hand chosen due to our high quality workmanship thus relocated as part of our deal, While here Wife decided to buy a second home ,not knowing any roofers we ran across his ad and decided to give him a shot either that or wait for our roofer from Santa Barbara to come here when his time allowed,I was hesitant due to the high standards and clientel we are accustom to In Santa Barbara my wife included ...To our amazement Toms personality as a person was a pleasure to work with on a professional level his work and his of qualitywork far exceeded what we were expecting down here ,Tom is capable to perform as directed without little if no input from us it went smooth,Other subs we hired here for our own personal projects saw me as the General and not as the client which we were not happy about , Tom saw beyond that knowing I am a general yet not on my personal property , he gave us A-1 treatment , quality of his workmanship is beyond what I expected if the need arose I would not hesitate to take him back home to Santa barbara as a subcontractor , however as for now we, click which makes my life easier to say the least so in regards to down this area I think I found one subcontractor I will keep....As for you others subcontractors from this area well it's probably in my best interest to just bring my subcontractors from Santa Barbara due the working relationship with me and their high quality of workmanship which I have built my reputation on , However Tom has proved himself beyond what I expected and I look forward to upcoming projects with him down south here as well as back in Santa Barbara if he's up for it his quality will fit right in up there with what the cliental expectsand high standards the client base expect in santa Barbara and like me Tom is hands on not the type of contractor who just sends workers and just shows up when it's time to pickup a check....as for his prices well it is a fair price for the quality and the pleasure of working with Tom.....Not to mention he is licensed insured etc. Tom like my self is not looking to get rich off one Job rather we know during these economic times things have changed and we have to change with it and like myself tom reflected that in His price, all these other subs heard I was from Santa Barbara and saw $$$$$ signs , somehow the general public has this conception all contractors have deep pockets , let me assure you it takes capital to make money and we have a lot tied up in Insurances , Bond's etc things the public has no idea about and although our cost have to adjust accordingly based on these economic times I can assure our Marerial's prices and labor expenses as well as insurance and bonds have only increased...So bottom line with Tom for a licensed Roofer and your protection your wasting time shopping around.

We have been working with Eddie on multiple properties for over 5 years now. His work has ranged from very simple to major remodeling and home repairs (plumbing, electrical, kitchen remodel, tile floors/counter tops, painting, roof repair and more). We really value his honesty, responsiveness and reliability. The guy is personable and he offers good ideas. And his work is very high quality, for very fair rates. A good contractor is a great resource - I would definitely recommend him.

Had a excellent experience with BCD Construction. I have had problems in the past with contractors cancelling and just not showing up, this was absolutely not the case with BCD. They showed up on time when they said they would. All the people who worked on my job (installation of vinyl flooring and baseboards) were very nice and helpful, and went beyond to make sure things were done properly. If you want honest , professional people who get the job done right you will be happy in choosing BCD.

Frank made transaction with our project comforting and non-pressured. He brings forth integrity from start to finish. The time he and his son's (James "Ruiz" and John) set aside, just to complete the job, no matter how late in the evening it took, they push through oblivious to how late it was. We just stood back and let them do their thing. Frank methodically checks the work at each level of the project. He's family works with passion and good spirits, yet focused on completion. He abides by everything in the contract. The finished results are way more than we expected. The corners and round edges were finalized with monolithic precision. It looked as if we had just bought one long baseboard and crown molding stretched throughout the house. He does not nickel & dime you for things. My family were fortunate enough to have fate acquaint us with this man and his team. We are gratified with the spectacular results. If you are in the market for crown moldings and other goals, he is a general contractor also. Give him a shot, call him first, maybe call him last.

My experience with contractors has not always been favorable, however, Artisan Design & Build has set a new standard of EXCELLENCE. Sidney, the head contractor, was able to understand what I wanted/needed and made suggestions that were cost efficient. Not only is the work first-rate and aesthetically appealing, he was able to complete the jobs before the deadline.

My husband and I hired Mark to remodel and design our condo we bought in Palm Springs. My husband and I live in the bay area so we needed someone with the same vision as us and the ability become the project lead. Mark was amazing, he hired, supervised and managed all sub-contractors for us. Mark picked out different finishing materials and gave us options as the project progressed. When we saw our property for the first time after it was completed it was the classic HGTV moment and reveal. We would certainly hire Mark again if given the opportunity.

As a general contractor for over 35, I have had the luxury of seeing multiple facets of the construction industry and working with Caesar and LGA drywall has been an absolute breeze. The jobs are completed when he says they will be completed. His pricing is reasonable and the quality of work is unmatched. I will continue to hire and work with LGA drywall

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.

For more on where to start when remodeling a bathroom check out The Complete Thumbtack Bathroom Remodel Guide.

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.
