We recently used Jose to do some improvements on a home that we just purchased. We were very concerned about finding someone both professional and talented since this our first home purchase. Thankfully we were absolutely impressed with both Jose's talent and professionalism. Jose did an amazing job and treated our home as it if was his own. We will be using Jose now and in the future for all home improvements and repairs. We highly recommend Jose as handyman, electrician, painter etc. Please feel free to contact us for any reference.

I just had Chris Mingo of Chris Home Improvement clear out my back yard of dead shrubs and plants, a couple trees and miscellaneous junk that had accumulated over the years. Chris and his crew worked non-stop for one and a half days and even took two additional items to the dump for us. He trimmed up the trees and shrubs we were keeping. They had a huge job ahead of them and just got to work and kept at it until they were done. They came prepared with saws, clippers, chain saws, shovels and brooms and a huge truck, complete with orange traffic cones. They swept down all sidewalks and patios before they left. I am really happy with his work.

I can't say enough good things about Jose and the landscape work he did for us! He and his team were professional, courteous and got the job done on time and within our budget. He laid pavers for us in our front and back yard, removed tree stumps, graded the yard and moved sprinklers. He also ran wire for low voltage lights. I highly recommend Jose for any landscape or home improvement job!

Jorge and his partner were awesome in accommodating me! I reached out at 10pm and they were at my home by 9am the next morning! They finished the job in under 30 minutes! He is so confident in his skills that he assured me I wouldn't even have to pay if he wasn't able to complete the job. His rate was reasonable and I would recommend and use him again for any job!

I highly recommend working with David for your home upgrade needs. If you are looking for a good honest professional and best value for money, then you should contact him. David modernized our fireplace which included new tile and custom mantle. David was professional and treated our home as if it were his own through the project. We were hands down satisfied with his work and plan to contact him for our next project. Thanks David!

We found Omar and his crew down the street whom at the moment was doing an installation for a neighbor down the street. We liked the outcome of the installation so we decided to get in touch with Omar. He scheduled and appointment with us later that week in the evening to give us a quote and ideas in how we could improve our front and backyard. Omar provided a detailed 3D landscape design that really blew our minds out of the water. We were impressed with the design, so we went ahead and proceeded with the work. Omar executed the installation just as how it was planned in his design. We were totally satisfied with his work and his guys work especially in this heat. I would with no doubt recommend Omar and his crew to anyone with an interest for good quality work.

After trying to get quotes Robert Lindstrom Nationwide Secure Inc. was the only company to contact me back promptly (I contacted 3 other construction companies none of which called back!) He was very patient with us as our schedules constantly change. Provided excellent expertise on what needed to be fixed. Even waited for a while before was let onto the property. Have not yet booked anything to be repaired but good business begins with excellent "customer service." Because of that will definitely consider for other work we need to get done for commercial office and home repairs.

Jason and his team improved the whole look of our backyard wall with new stone veneer and caps. They also built a new bar in the area. After doing what we told him to do, we called to tell him we didn't like it. He didn't complain or remind us that is what we told them to do, instead he reviewed some new options and really worked within our budget to improve the final product. Some guys will say their number one goal is making their customer happy, but Jason proved it to us and for that we will call on him for more work. We fully recommend Jason and his crew.

Robert quoted a bathroom remodel for our Chromatic Coffee Cafe on Thumbtack and then came by to give as a more accurate quote. We were on a tight budget and he was willing to work withing that framework. He encountered dry rot, our sink drain was almost completely clogged, and we couldn´t find the faucet we had bought for the job. He hit all these snags, went back to Home Depot, stayed until 4am to finish the job. We only have one bathroom and we wanted it to reopen as soon as possible. Professional, positive, diligent, and well priced. We will be using them again!!!

GW Construction helped me with a remodel. The job consisted of uprighting a 12 ft. support beam and approximately 25 drywall panels. The price was a lot less than other contractors that bid on the job and they completed the job in one week. Matt and Jody communicated with me on a daily basis asking how the job was going. They were absolutely dedicated to my satisfaction. The contractors that worked on the project were professional and made me laugh all day long. They even let me know when they saw a better idea for my remodel or saw something that we needed to tweak to make it look better. No fuss, no hassle, no problems. Matt gives you his price and sticks to it, even if something comes up and a little more work needs to be done. Overall a great experience and a job well done!

I brought my first investment property for $360,000 and I had a $40,000 budget to spend to flip the house. I was referred to Rudy's Home Improvement by Russell Walker from Keller Williams Realty. Russell said Rudy has been flipping houses for him for about 20 years, I contacted Rudy told him what my budget was and I really need to stick to it. He discussed with me my options and then proceeded to do the work. His work was done in a timely fashion. He worked on my house for about 5 weeks and he stuck to the budget. When he was done my house set on the market for about 2 weeks and it was sold for $475,000. Now I'm working on getting my next investment property. THANKS TO RUDY'S HOME IMPROVEMENTS TWO THUMBS UP! Thanks alot Rudy!!

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.
