Great experience working with MVP! I had a short notice very important job and he made it happen! Needed some piping trenched last minute for a kitchen island.

PKS was able to come out the day after I posted on Thumbtack and resolve the electrical issue at my grandmother's house in a timely and professional manner. And they charged us a fair price. They worked quickly and restored the power to my grandmother's home after a small fire left her without electricity for days. I am grateful for their service.

Jeff did an absolutely fabulous job installing barn door hardware to hang an existing vintage door in our tiny historic district home. He was an excellent communicator both before the job and during. He accommodated our tight schedule to complete the job, provided a workable solution to a minor installation snag, and the end product is even better than I had imagined. High quality workmanship! Definitely would hire again!

Todd is terrific. He’s honest, reliable and does what he says he’ll do. He does thorough, high quality work at a fair price. He’s done a number projects at my home (new kitchen, indoor lighting, electrical work, wall and ceiling re-texturing, etc.) and we plan to do more this year. Todd (and crew) are very respectful of people living in the home he’s working on, and they never leave a mess behind. I needed entry ramps (for a complicated entry) in a hurry when a family member became temporarily wheelchair-bound due to a fall. Todd had the ramps measured, designed, BUILT AND DELIVERED in less than 48 hours!! Todd cares about his people. I could write more, but will close by saying is a real pleasure working with Todd Ellis.

I contacted Belru about laminate floor installation. Maks responded immediately and was willing to work with my tiny budget. We ultimately decided to do the project ourselves due to financial reasons but I was so impressed with Maks's customer service. I would highly recommend Belru and I will definitely contact again for future home improvement projects!

I would recommend this company to anyone in need of work done on their home. I had a terrible problem with fungi inside and outside of my home. There was dry rot on the siding and trim, the plywood roof sheathing on the patio cover, the support beams suffered from fungi damage, a lot of my wood sash windows were affected by the fungi as well. Spectrum One sent their crew out right away. Not only did they remove and replace all of the damaged wood, they also fixed my leaking faucet and toilet. Thank you!!

I had an outlet in the house that would randomly lose power. It was determined that my electrical panel was the cause and needed to be replaced. Aaron clearly explained what needed to happen, why, and next steps. Throughout the process, he continually communicated with me and coordinated the work with SMUD. Because of the age of the panel, the electrical system needed to be brought up to code. Aaron had no problem handling the updates and my requests to make adjustments to improve the cosmetic appearance of those required code updates. Yes, a new panel is an expense that one doesn't look forward to!! Let's face it.. it just sits on your wall, we walk past it without bragging, like we would with a new barbeque... "oh, wow! look at that beautiful electrical panel," and we don't think about it until something happens and then we realize how important it is on a daily basis. But the reality is that how often do you really replace your panel?? 25-50+ years. My thought is that it needs to be done right so it will work correctly and endure for a very long time and that might cost a little bit more but I would rather have a professional than a fly by night electrician. Aaron was there when he said he would be, finished the job in one day, made a clean install, cleaned up the work area, and provided a power unit so the house would have some temporary power for the house computer while the work was being done. I have since called Aaron back to look into fixing some faulty wiring from a patio cover installer. Aaron is now my go-to electrician!

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.

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.

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
    • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.
