We wanted to get crown molding installed along with a trayed ceiling. Although none of the contractors knew exactly what we wanted, Frank worked with us to turn the image in our mind into reality. He got the job because, as a general contractor, he has the skill, manpower and equipment available to do multiple jobs like electrical work and cabinet work (our job also involved drywall and painting work). So, although the project started as a simple crown molding job, we got a lot of other things taken care of. Franks and his crew was very friendly and professional. They were very responsive to our requests and worked to make us happy. For example, we wanted to have Plexiglas installed in a cabinet door. After he did this (in his shop) he didn't think that we would like the result, so he installed a dark glass panel instead. We were very pleased with the result. In fact, we were so pleased that we are hiring them again for another job. I highly recommend Ruiz Construction Co.

I have owned this house in Hemet since 1992, but my daughter and her family have lived in it for about 3 years and plan on buying it within the next 2 years. Obviously, I want the best for my daughter, so, knowing that the original shake roof was in desperate need of replacement, I began my search for a good roofing company. I contacted 4 contractors and narrowed those down to 2; my daughter and her husband had a good feeling about Ener-Tech in their initial meeting, and thus began our experience with them. The entire process of replacing the roof was exemplary: friendly, compassionate, professional, reasonably priced, contientious, and most importantly, they installed a high quality roof with expertise and skill. I would highly recommend Ener-Tech to anyone looking for someone to do some roof work.

I have worked with Vela Construction Company for a few years now on several different projects ranging from small to large scale - varying into modernization upgrades and expansions. They have demonstrated a professional and ethical caliber with a willingness to appease their clients and uphold the old school motto of “Customer is Always Right”. The completion target dates have been maintained with very little change orders which is always a plus when you are working with a certain budget. The project manager always goes out of his way to make sure our site inspections with the city were resolved with no issues and all corresponding permits were cleared within a timely manner. The fact that we continue sending business their way is indicative of my satisfaction with this company. Jessica Trujillo, HOA Manager

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.

Bathroom. Complete gut, replace tub, flooring, walls, vanity/sink. Ed worked with us through out the project. Very helpful with deciding on details. He picks up all materials and everything is cleaned up at end. I am a residential contractor from another state but did not have time for this project. I know the trade and feel comfortable with his level of knowledge and experience. Ed goes the extra mile to do the right thing. He is already working up a quote for another job for us.

    I was very happy with how our garage project turned out. We needed to completely insulate, drywall and paint our garage with cabinets and shelving and he was able to complete the project in a timely manner. Nicholas Reyes Construction was very easy to work with and gave us a competitive price and never tried to up-sell additional items like we have experienced with other contractors. His work quality is excellent and always kept us up to date with the progression. I highly recommend him.

    Dan laid about 600 SF of 16" slate tile for us. He was prompt and reliable and had good energy. The job was very good quality except maybe a couple of picky things that I think his helper did. Only down side is he left a mess of thinset on exterior walls and I had to bag all the garbage. I really love a contractor who cleans up well. Otherwise, Dan is very good for tiling.

    We were fortunate enough to find Kevin Farmer to replace all the carpets in our home with concrete. All the other contractors we spoke to told us that concrete could not be placed over wood on second floors. Kevin did the research to find a new product and learn the process. The result was spectacular. He stained the floors to have an old world look that is consistent with the Tuscan style of the house. He gave us a very fair price, was a pleasure to work with and exceeded our expectations. We are very happy to know a contractor who we would trust with any job.

    We contracted Mike to redo our kitchen. While we had a good idea what we wanted, Mike took the time to show us the alternatives and was very helpful in keeping us on budget. Mike took us from full demo to new completed kitchen in 4 weeks. ( we waited one of those weeks for the countertops to be delivered.) I would hire mike and his crew for any project in my homes. Always on time, always neat, always honest about the job. Mike Kaake is one of the Good Guys!

    Eddie was very responsive with his quote - I liked that he quotes for the whole job, rather than per hour. This makes way more sense to me, so I can budget for this. Work quality is excellent - he said he can do the jobs, which he provided efficiently, without difficultly, and was punctual and got it all done within two hours, even going to Home Depot to get some hardware needed to install our new security door, and buy replacement shingles that were blown off from our garage, which he perfectly matched. Eddie is an awesome Handyman, and I highly recommended him!

    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.
