Amin was great. He was punctual and even assembled a bed I bought from Overstock which came in almost 100 pieces. He was very clean and honest, including telling me that he didn't recommend the lock I'd picked and offered to get a safer lock change for my home. I ended up adding several odd jobs, including mounting a different TV onto a pre-existing TV mount. Even though some parts were missing he figured it all out. And he was reasonable for all these jobs that took 4 hours plus to complete (the bed And dresser took him 3 hours).

I have to say hiring Nima for some electrical repair and installation was one of the best ideas possible. He did an absolutely phenomenal job from beginning to end. I had personally interviewed seven other electricians to install floodlights motion detectors and a beam for home. Nima responded immediately, professionally, detailed in his process and procedure, and came in well below any of the other estimate. His work was flawless. I couldn't be happier and I promise if you hire him you will not be disappointed. He is a decent good man who does fantastic work for a low cost.

Awesome service -- Gabriel and Noe installed a light fixture in my living room. We couldn't be happier with their work. Their prices were very fair -- even for an unanticipated trip to Home Depot for parts. I would definitely hire them again.

T.J. at House To Home is an expert tradesman. He's highly versed in all things home-improvement, honest, accessible, communicative, and very efficient. We had a dryer vent installed into/out of the wall of our old craftsman home (that had never previously been done) and T.J solved all problems with ease and finesse. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Roger is a true professional and his performances are outstanding . Initially, l requested his service for installing a security light, while he was completing that job he performed other home improvements around the house . He has demonstrated enormous enthusiasm ,energy and willingness to take several tasks and responsibilities simultaneously . He is very honest, polite and courteous and a true gentleman which is an important criteria for me. Roger is a great person to work with. He is very detail oriented and his fees are very reasonable . I give him a high recommendation . I am looking forward to continue my collaboration with him and in fact I have already appointed him as my property manager.

Houman helped us improve our home by removing a large, outdated fireplace and chimney. This was no simple job. It required hammering out 7 tons of brick and concrete that made up the fireplace/chimney. The vacated space was then rebuilt to house a French door. An adjacent existing sliding door was also replaced with an identical French door. Houman was always on time, and held true to his estimate. He is very detail oriented, communicative, very clean, and organized. It was not just Houman, the rest of team were equally amiable and trustworthy. The best thing that I can say is that we will definitely employ Houman for future renovations to our home.

Jeremy did an amazing job with building and installing 6x PAX wardrobes including all the shelves and drawers. He built them quickly, even though there was a power outage and the lights went out. He worked with flashlights to get the job done, and that is true dedication to client satisfaction. Before even installing the wardrobe he worked to remove the old shelving units and after the installation cleaned up after himself leaving our new closet clean and all the box and trash removed. I would easily recommend for anyone with an IKEA build to reach out to Jerome for construction and completion of there new furniture. We're looking to purchase units for our home office and will definitely be reaching out to Jerome for that work.

Glad I hired Rob instead of taking the advice of my plumbing company to replace my two toilets. Rob fixed them and only replaced faulty parts, saving me lots of money. Communicating with Rob was very convenient. He asked I text him pictures of the toilet parts. He then researched them and order replacement parts on my behalf, thus saving me time as well. I will definitely retain Rob's services for future maintenance and remodeling work for my home. Great guy to have a conversation with too :)

I have used Clark Plumbing services many times. Brandon, the owner of the business, once changed a water heater in my house that gave out. I had not had to deal with this issue in the past and therefore, did not know a whole lot about the various water heaters available. Brandon didn't just give me what he wanted me and then charge me. Instead, he talked me through the different types and sizes most appropriate for the size of my house. He also discussed the different qualities and prices of water heaters available, allowing me to make an informed decision. The information he provided actually gave me the opportunity to upgrade to a better quality product and size, and yet choose from good quality products that were still cost effective. And this was really noticeable when my family members all took showers and we still had hot water. It was nice! Brandon also converted the plumbing in my home to copper pipes. What a difference! I loved it! Furthermore, a neighbor of mine was told that she needed plumbing services that would cost a lot of money. I referred her to Clark Plumbing for an estimate. Brandon told her what she needed in order to handle the issue, and it turns out it was way less than what she had been quoted by the previous plumber. He was able to fix her plumbing issue for a lot less money. I have come to trust him and his services, which I value as extremely important. He is super honest and doesn't charge for services that do not need to be done. Since I have used Clark Plumbing services several times, I have gotten to know him a little better. He's a friendly and funny guy. I learned that Brandon started out doing plumbing work with his father when he was a teenager. He now has many years of experience providing plumbing services and from my experience with him, really knows what he is doing. I found out that he has worked both in installing plumbing into new dwellings and buildings, as well as providing plumbing services for those who need help, like (on occasion) me. Brandon has done an excellent job with the plumbing services he has done for me and honestly, he is the first person I refer people to when they tell me they have a plumbing issue.

We recently had our home painted and wanted to add exterior coach lights to both sides of the garage door. We had several quotes for the job (using same materials) and Mike's quote was the most reasonable of them all. We set up an appointment for the job and Mike not only showed up on time but also called to let us know he was on his way (this is rare with most contractors/installers). He performed the work promptly and added a photo cell so the lights turn on at night and off in the morning by themselves. This exterior accent lighting was the finishing touch for our home improvement project which now also adds a bit more security to our dwelling.We were extremely happy with Mike's friendly service, highly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future. American Castles and Mike Tay are class acts!

Jerry was able to paint my side yard fence as soon as I contacted him. He was prompt, actually a few minutes early. He even went to Home Depot to pick up some wood to fix the fence. He went right to work, completed the job within a fee hours, and cleaned up afterwards. Jerry did a great job, and I would recommend and use him again.

I would definitely recommend Sami and MHD for home renovation! I shopped for several companies and Sami provided the quote fastest with a very reasonable price. He is detail oriented, always responsive to calls and requests. He brought us to pro source stores to shop for material. Great quality with wholesale price. I did hard wood floor on my second and third level and the stairs for more than 2000 square feet. We used laminate. Sami did a fantastic work without using quarter round as transition per our request. It looked fabulous. Sami is definitely a trustworthy person and such a perfectionist with patience. We needed a project manager who is willing to spend time on our home while we can stay away and busy with our business. And Sami is definitely the one you can give your home to.

I first dealt with K KM Patio Covers 4 years ago,I am a Property Management specialist and was looking to replace a dilapidated wooden structure at a client's home. I received several estimates from companies in the area and KM was not only the best price, they were also the most responsive and easiest to deal with. Since working with KM four years ago I have called them back for over a dozen different projects for properties I manage, including my personal home. Not only are they great the first time, but the projects they have done for me have been better and better. They are the only call necessary for a great patio cover.

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 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.
