Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What should I ask a bathroom remodeler before hiring?

It’s important to ensure that you and the contractor are on the same page before any work begins, so don’t be afraid to ask potential bathroom remodelers plenty of questions.

Start by reading the contractor’s reviews online. Ask to see examples of their past work — specifically, work that is similar to yours. If you need the bathroom remodel done by a certain date, ask the contractor if they will be able to complete the work by your deadline. And you should always ask how they handle payments. 

Here are some examples of questions you can ask:

  • What materials do you recommend for my budget and overall vision?
  • How much are the materials and labor? What will my final cost be?
  • Do you have the proper license and insurance? 
  • Can I see photos of past bathroom remodels you’ve worked on?
  • How long will it take to complete the remodel?
  • How do you handle payments?

Are bathroom remodels worth it?

Remodeling your bathroom can lead to high personal satisfaction, as perhaps even a return on your investment when it comes time to sell your home. When you replace old and worn out surfaces with high-quality materials, it is almost guaranteed to improve the look and functionality of that space. A bathroom renovation can also improve your home’s curb appeal to future buyers and boost its overall value. 

To determine if this project is worth the cost, start by getting free estimates from the best bathroom remodelers near you. And if you plan on selling your home, consult with your real estate expert to identify which remodeling projects you should prioritize.

Do I need a general contractor for a bathroom remodel?

For a small bathroom remodel, you may not need a general contractor. For example, if you simply need some plumbing or electrical work done in your bathroom, hiring a plumber or electrician should be sufficient. 

However, if you’re tackling a large-scale remodel, a general contractor can coordinate a team of designers, painters and other specialty contractors to get the job done. Typically, the rule of thumb is that you should hire a general contractor if your project is large enough to require a building permit. 

Reach out the best bathroom remodelers near you to start planning your project, assemble a team and get cost estimates.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

How do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.

Reviews for Burlingame bathroom remodelers
Ian R.
I recently moved into a house where everything needed to be remodeled. We started off by having my bathroom demolished and then remodeled. The lay out of the bathroom was uncomfortable and inconvenient. The owner of the company came to look at the bathroom and took measurements. That same day he designed a design before and after of what my bathroom would look like. From the demo, to the cabinet, flooring & other options we were able to choose from, now we have a beautiful bathroom that I didn't think we could do. The bathroom was demolished and re built in less than 3 weeks! I was never confused or unaware at any point of the project. With this company's pricing & attention to detail, we can't wait for our next project to do with them.

Last summer, my husband and I decided to do some remodeling. We weren't sure where to begin, eventually we settled on starting with a complete gutting and remodel of the kitchen and office in the family room, as well as widening and lengthening a short set of stairs to the family room and began to call contractors and start getting estimates. I did not know where to start in changing the kitchen. Prosper Construction Development helped me to prioritize the decisions that needed to be made and made suggestions as to what to look for that could improve the layout which I love! As our kitchen, office area, and stairs neared completion, we realized we needed more done by this great team. We ended up having them raise our entry to level it out to the dining room, gut our laundry room, install crown molding, replace all the doors, including the front doors which required a raising of the front steps. Prosper and David both have so much knowledge between them and work so well together They painted all the kitchen cabinets, bar area, bathroom, laundry rooms, interior and front doors. I don't know how, but he fills all holes, matches all textures, and leaves everything looking brand new. It was a pleasure to have Prosper Construction in our home, so much so that we intend to do more asap! Thanks!

We recently decided to hire Prosper Construction to remodel our bathroom for having reasonable prices, it's gorgeous and we absolutely love it!. I went to Prosper Construction in April and was immediately impressed with their customer service. Setting up the appointment was super quick and easy, I was able to get an appointment that same week. Adam has an exacting attention to detail and cleans and organizes the space meticulously. Throughout the project, I appreciated the ongoing communication which is a must. The tile floor and new countertop were installed in one week and the result is stunning. Adam worked swiftly to identify a remnant of a slab that would work for this secondary bath. Less then a week later my home was returned to me like new. Everyone I’ve worked with is kind, professional and does a great job. The follow-through was exceptional. We recommend Prosper Construction highly and will be using them again for any future work in our home.

Just had my kitchen remodeled today and it is beautiful. Called several contractors for quotes and the best price and experience was Prosper and Prosper Construction. The job was completed on time, and on budget. From the cabinet crew to the electrician to the granite layers, everyone was pleasant and efficient in their work. He built all new cabinets for our kitchen, bathrooms and hallway. They also installed new quartz counter tops. The crew always showed up on time and he’ always got back to me promptly by phone or text whenever I had a question and kept our home very neat and tidy during the renovations. Prosper was really easy to work with. He listened to what my style was and my budget and designed a beautiful one of a kind kitchen. We couldn't be more pleased with the work that the Prosper Construction Development crew did. When we get ready to tackle the master bath, I will have no reservations about calling him out to do the work. Thank you Prosper for turning my old, out dated kitchen into the kitchens of our dreams and making it so easy.
