Stephen was awesome!! He did such a great and fast job on removing all my old carpet. He's nice, honest, and efficient and his prices were super reasonable. I would definitely hire Stephen again for all my home improvement projects. Also, his communication was superb! 10/10!

LGO’s work has yet to be finished or re-done. I paid LGO a total of $4,076.95, out of which $3,700 was for labor. I counted the hours on site (my home), and calculated that I paid roughly $264 per hour for approximately 14 hours on site (my home). That’s very far from $59/hour indicated by LGO in their stated fee on Thumbtack. I hired LGO to do several repairs/installations that fit with “handyman work,” which were done July 16 –19 at our home. I notified the owner on July 29 of items that needed to be completed or re-done by the crew, and I also described issues that could have caused harm. On August 9, the owner and I came to an agreement about next steps, but it is now August 19, I have not been contacted by the crew to complete or re-do the work. I share my unsatisfactory experience to be fair both to professionals who give excellent service and also to customers who seek quality work at the stated price. I usually give as positive a review as I can, but I can’t this time, despite my liking the owner and crew, I support independent business, and some of LGO’s work was good enough.

Houman helped us improve our home by removing a large, outdated fireplace and chimney.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.

My project was taking out a sink/faucet/disposer set and reinstalling the disposer and new sink and faucet set. The thing that some of the contractors said was that one couldn't install around granite, so I was a bit prepared for damage to my countertop, which was not at all desired. Not a scratch. A few unexpected challenges in that my existing disposer was too big for the piping and the piping required an adjustment, but he had some fittings in truck, so no delay. One of the parts I ordered did not arrive on time so he is coming back to hook that flange up. 1. He was precisely on time and emailed to say how far away he was. 2. Arrived neat and professional with his shoe coverings already on before entering my home 3. knew what he was talking about 4. adapted to surprises 5. most important, got along well with my dog, who supervised the entire project and approved.

Hector made several electrical and plumbing repairs/installations at our home (inside and out), which included rewiring the recessed lights in the ceiling (which were flickering) and related drywall repair as well as repairing a leaking toilet. He also fixed a short in our bathroom light fixture, replaced a sprinkler valve and installed a new shut-off valve on an exterior copper pipe leading to the sprinkler valve. Additionally, Hector kindly offered to replace an electrical outlet and fix loose electrical outlet boxes for only the cost of parts. Hector is respectful and a mild-mannered professional. We have several other home improvement projects in mind and look forward to working with him again in the near future. Honest + Reasonable Prices + Quality Work = Highly Recommended!

I could not be happier with the work Clinton has done for me. He is professional, talented, kind, honest and fair. He is also a natural born problem solver with a great attitude. When I hired him to tile my back patio, and paint the entire interior of my home, he was on-time everyday, and worked very hard until the job was done! I chose the wrong color for paint (did not realize it until the job was done) so he repainted the whole thing quickly and easily worked around the movers who were putting my furniture back in. It was a chaotic day, but Clinton and his team handled it easily. He is so talented and can do so many projects. You are in good hands if you hire Clinton Beebe. You may use my phone number as a reference. 949-394-7775

We had a small bathroom renovation planned. We requested 2 bids from contractors in the Thumbtack network: Top Knotch and another contractor. Both contractors bid very competitively. (We’d had prior bids from other contractors – not from Thumbtack - at 3 to 5 times the price.) Though Top Knotch was not the lowest bidder of the 2 Thumbtack contractors, we selected this company because they had a variety of skillsets that other contractor did not. In addition to the tile work, they moved a bathroom light, installed an exhaust fan, installed a medicine cabinet, repaired some drywall, could remove and replace the toilet, etc. We have a 1930’s home with hanky wiring and unsquared walls and unleveled floors. Mike was meticulous in his work and was able to overcome the unique challenges of this home. The mosaic rock backsplash (floor to ceiling) and the porcelain wood-look floor tile is beautiful. Mike and his assistant were always on time and worked a full day, every day until the project was completed. We were impressed that in this day of technology and constantly being “plugged in” to the world by cell phone, he didn’t drop everything to answer the phone every time it rang. His time in our home was spent on our project. Mike is very professional and meticulous in his work product. We’d use this company again and have plans to use him for our upcoming kitchen remodel. We’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking for quality work at a reasonable price. Rodney R.

I highly recommend Steve Fry for your construction needs! We had a barn door custom made just sitting at our home and in need of installation. Steve responded timely to my Thumbtack request and we made arrangements to meet within a few days. He showed up on time and was prepared to do the work. The door kit was a bit raw, but he knew exactly what to do. He was friendly, and is truly and expert in door hanging. The final product took only a few hours and it looks beautiful. Couldn't be happier. Please call Steve for your construction projects - you won't be disappointed!

After our initial contact on thumbtack, I called Southerland Torres company on the phone. I was so reassured by our conversation that I made an appointment for an electrician to come to my home and fix the problem. I had chosen a date about a week away and by the time he came over I had thought of a few more things that needed fixing too. All projects were done for a lot less than I thought it would cost me. I am so very pleased with the company and would recommend them to any and all that need any electric, plumbing, appliance repair or general construction issues they need addressed. Thank you Darrion I appreciate all the work you did for my little house!

I had Rojilio come to my home to provide a quote. He walked everything with me, communicated what I told him to be sure he had the scope covered and provided me a competitive quote. I chose to go with him (even though he wasn’t the lowest) because he was on time to our home, seemed to understand the scope and gave lucrative suggestions. His quality of work and attention to detail was outstanding. He used high quality paint, protected everything and cleaned as he went. If I had my own business, I’d hire him immediate to work for me.

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 used Kevin several times this Fall 2018 and he did a really great job. No complaints at all. My daughter booked him too. Then he disappeared without a call. She just moved and her TVs are all sitting on the floor, my lamps are too, and my master bath is in total darkness. Kevin if you are out there, please contact us to finish these jobs!

We were new to this area and wanted a designer which would work well with the architect and contractors we had already hired. Deborah was gracious and delightful to work with. She worked beautifully with everyone and created an absolute haven for us. Living in Southern California along the Gold Coast is a beautiful luxury. The finishes, furnishing and accents Deborah suggested are so wonderfully tied together. We are amazed everyday and feel we are in our lovely European resort (where we were traveling). Thank you Deborah for all your gorgeous work and effort to make our home so comfortable and serene. You have been so accommodating and great to work with. We love our home so much! Laguna Beach, CA

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.

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 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.

For more on where to start when remodeling a bathroom check out The Complete Thumbtack Bathroom Remodel Guide.

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.
