In short, I would highly recommend TJ with House to Home. I've already referred him to a friend, which is rare for me to do with contractors I've worked with in the past, but TJ earned it. If you want a contractor with an eye for detail, the skill to see it through and a pride of workmanship that ensures a quality job, then TJ's the guy. He was creative and tenacious about solving unexpected problems and he did so with a genuine consciousness for my budget. He removed my old double sink vanity, mirror, light and medicine cabinet. He did a beautiful job replacing them with the new fixtures, including all plumbing and electrical. TJ was both dependable and flexible. He was always careful about protecting the floor and surroundings and thoroughly cleaning up every time before he left. Thanks TJ!

We were originally quoted $2,000 to replace a water heater. Of course I knew this was exorbitant and in no way where we going to pay this. At this point, I came across Allan. Allan went above and beyond what I would have expected. He picked up, paid for, and delivered the water heater to us! Of course I reimbursed him after the job was completed. Who does that? At any rate, we communicatedand flawlessly though text during the initial transaction. He also did it the same day that our water heater went out which was on a Saturday! Needless to say-and by all the reviews he has-Allan and his team are a breath of fresh air among the the somewhat flaky world of contractors.

I would highly recommend Sos. We hired Sos after speaking with several different handymen. He refinished our hardwood floors, moved a bedroom door, removed some tile and completed a few other smaller jobs. He was professional and went above and beyond what we asked him to do. I was very pleased with the quality of his work.

I hired Excel Construction LA to a full interior remodel of a 1928 home that I purchased as a rental property, but quickly determined I had underestimated the amount of work and investment required to get it rental ready. As a casual landlord, I did not have much experience with remodeling, managing contractors, estimating costs, etc. But I loved the house and had a vision for what I wanted to create. I chose Excel Construction LA because I felt they understood my vision and would be flexible along the way. I was right and they proved to be a fantastic partner. Excel was always able to provide quality materials at a reasonable price, they were extremely flexible and accommodating working with my schedule and they produced quality work. The managed the entire permit process and went above and beyond to ensure all inspections were passed - not just the city's inspections, but also the buyer's inspectors. In the end, we turned a very run down home in South LA into a beautiful new home that sold for the top price point in the zip code - something local realtors said could not be done. Excel deserves a ton of credit for this. Nofar, Evan and the entire Excel team were super helpful and fun to work with, as was the sub, Jorge. Thanks Excel!

Extremely professional, reliable, personable, intelligent, and punctual. I have dealt with many contractors before, and I can say with confidence that John was the absolute best. Not only does John do the job right, but he develops a relationship that extends beyond the job itself. If you want the job done right the first time, hire John.

Joey was very understanding of the small job/low budget where other contractors were quoting 2-3x. He had one of his men, Milan, come and install cork underlay with click hardwood. Initially I was quoted $350, but it became $400 upon arrival - not a big deal, but something to consider if you’re shoestring and ran out of money on a build as I did. Milan did a pretty great job overall, very friendly and speedy. In this circumstance precision near the walls didn’t concern me as I built floor to ceiling acoustic panels, however I was a bit concerned about the lack of spacers and some not so “straight” cuts. Also, there was a misunderstanding regarding the threshold and the point the floor was to be brought up to. Luckily, after some schedule conflict, Joey was able to get him back out to correct the mistake. Overall the floor looks great, feel solid thus far, no bowing or splits, so I think it’ll hold up. The floor style itself looks spectacular. Overall I’d give them a B+

Debby came highly recommended and I was not disappointed. Although the project was a small downstairs bathroom, Debby approached it as if it was her own bathroom. We discussed my specific desires for the bath and she promptly provided a full and excellent layout drawing along with a variety of fixtures to select from. Possible contractors were interviewed by Debby and myself. Based on the scale of the project Debby was able to steer me clear of those that provided inflated and lengthy project time bids. The selected fixtures were delivered in rapid fashion. Debby was present at the actual initiation of the project and during its execution to provide excellent direction and troubleshooting when necessary to the contractor. Some natural stone received was subpar and Debby quickly arranged for replacement material, assuring the project stayed on schedule and on budget. I would have Debby do another project for me in a heart beat.

I originally used Haggerty Construction a few yer ago for improvements to my rental properties. The crews always showed up on time. And were always professional. They finished on or ahead of schedule and were always able to work within my budget. Because of this I decided to use them for a small but high end bathroom in my own home. My wife and I were very pleased with the outcome. Haggerty Construction is the only contractor I will use for all my Construction needs.

I am very pleased to write this review about Pablo Solis of P.S. Electric. The project I had was to install several Insteon dimmer switches in my home. Pablo tackled the work professionally and articulately. He is honest, humble and cares about the quality of his work. It was a pleasure working with Pablo and I have no doubt that I will give him my future electrical work.

We had 3 bathrooms remodeled by hillstar construction, which included 2 complete remodels (master bath and Jack/Jill) and 1 minor updating of guest bath. This is our first remodeling experience and lior and his crew made every effort to accommodate our needs and requests. We relied on lior advise for details and very happy of the outcome. lior responded promptly and communicated well, and his attention to details was really good. We also noticed that hillstar construction used higher end product than other contractors when we compared the estimates and asked specific questions. They installed frameless glass showers and completely replaced floors on two bathroom, changed countertops to quartz replaced we actually had to change painter (from different paint company) to lior crew as we did not like the original work. lior crew completely removed wall paper before painting, which original paint person could not do. Major part of renovation was completed less than 2 weeks, just couple of hours for installing glass showers later and some paint work due to change of painter along the way. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the quality of the work done and the outcome. Also, LIOR went beyond as a contractor as to helping us manage the house while we were away during renovation, and it is very much appreciated. Bottom line, he can really be trusted for the quality of work he provides.

Me and my wife just finished re do must of the house. Kitchen bathrooms floors re pipe roof and more. We were so frastudated with picking the right contractor. We met Megan .. and after 1 meeting we knew that she is the right person. She took us to see few jobs in the area. We really got impressed. She knew to manage the project and stand on times. I can say it wasn't the cheapest bid that we got. But we got the quality that we wanted. We highly recommend to go with them.

I recently hired Shay and his crew to renovate the kitchen and hardwood floors throughout my house. This was undoubtedly the best experience with a contractor I have had to date. From the beginning and throughout the process he was quickly responsive to any questions or concerns I had. We did high end renovation with custom cabinets. They handled every aspect of the renovation with meticulous care, and the results prove it. The crew is professional. The head worker Iseia is extraordinarily talented and very pleasant to deal with. Expo Home is not the cheapest, but it's worth the price and wait to have excellence.

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.
