Joff and Forest just finished painting the entire inside of our newly purchased home. The quality of the job was excellent. The price was very good and he even offered a discount for my being a veteran. Joff was s pleasure to work with and brings experience and professionalism to his business. This is the kind of experience one wants to have when hiring a professional contractor. You could tell Joff takes pride in the end product and will not stop until you are completely satisfied. I know I sound like I'm related to the guy, but I'm not. He's the real deal. Nice to know there are still a few left.

The experience we had with Antique Plastering on our stucco project was truly second to none. From the inception of the project to completion, Owner Duane Seltzer delivered on every promise. He made the entire experience pleasant, efficient and easy to understand. I was worried because his quote was much better than a previous quote but in this case I received excellent quality at a good price. Our project was a little different than most. We needed someone to remove wood from the front of our house and replace with stucco to match the rest of the house. This was not an easy task as he would have to connect the new stucco in four places to the old stucco that our builder used on the rest of the house. Duane and his workers removed the old wood in less than a day. They had all the debris cleaned up and made sure there were no nails or anything dangerous left in the yard and driveway that could injure us or puncture a car tire. By the next day he had the exposed area completely lathed and ready for city inspection. It passed with no problem. After they finished the scratch and brown coat he had me water the entire area from top to bottom twice a day to keep the moisture level up which in turn strengthens the brown coat. I was very worried about the replacement window I had previously installed in the front of my house as a different contractor told me I would have to replace again because it would leak if he attempted to stucco around what I had. Duane told me this was not true, he was able to completely seal the window and guaranteed it would not leak after he finished. As I watered, I completely soaked above and around the window so I could be confident it was sealed and it is definitely leak proof. Duane advised us to let the brown coat harden for a few weeks so any cracks that naturally occur would not be visible in the finish coat. When he came back to put on the finish coat, he tinted the stucco to look like the rest of the house. He also perfectly installed a medallion that we special ordered. The results are fantastic, even better than we could have imagined. He not only blended the new stucco with the old stucco but he perfectly matched the texture so our home now looks like it was always 100% stucco. I can honestly say that Duane and his staff are true professionals. They do quality work from start to finish, they clean and organize as they work and he has excellent communication skills, which made us feel comfortable throughout the project. I highly recommend Antique Plastering for any stucco project, big or small.

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.
