Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What should I ask a bathroom remodeler before hiring?

It’s important to ensure that you and the contractor are on the same page before any work begins, so don’t be afraid to ask potential bathroom remodelers plenty of questions.

Start by reading the contractor’s reviews online. Ask to see examples of their past work — specifically, work that is similar to yours. If you need the bathroom remodel done by a certain date, ask the contractor if they will be able to complete the work by your deadline. And you should always ask how they handle payments. 

Here are some examples of questions you can ask:

  • What materials do you recommend for my budget and overall vision?
  • How much are the materials and labor? What will my final cost be?
  • Do you have the proper license and insurance? 
  • Can I see photos of past bathroom remodels you’ve worked on?
  • How long will it take to complete the remodel?
  • How do you handle payments?

Are bathroom remodels worth it?

Remodeling your bathroom can lead to high personal satisfaction, as perhaps even a return on your investment when it comes time to sell your home. When you replace old and worn out surfaces with high-quality materials, it is almost guaranteed to improve the look and functionality of that space. A bathroom renovation can also improve your home’s curb appeal to future buyers and boost its overall value. 

To determine if this project is worth the cost, start by getting free estimates from the best bathroom remodelers near you. And if you plan on selling your home, consult with your real estate expert to identify which remodeling projects you should prioritize.

Do I need a general contractor for a bathroom remodel?

For a small bathroom remodel, you may not need a general contractor. For example, if you simply need some plumbing or electrical work done in your bathroom, hiring a plumber or electrician should be sufficient. 

However, if you’re tackling a large-scale remodel, a general contractor can coordinate a team of designers, painters and other specialty contractors to get the job done. Typically, the rule of thumb is that you should hire a general contractor if your project is large enough to require a building permit. 

Reach out the best bathroom remodelers near you to start planning your project, assemble a team and get cost estimates.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

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.

We recently hired Js Innovative Home Remodeling company for our 5x9 bathroom remodeling project. This project was about replacing an outdated bathroom with more modern look. Tub shower, toilet, vanity, mirror, light and floor were replaced. Jose and Julio did an awesome job with this bathroom remodeling project and we are pleased with the overall outcome. They were courteous and hardworking people. One thing to keep in mind is that an owner has to pay for all the materials including paint roller, nails, caulk and other small construction materials which are usually provided by a contractor and this extra cost was added later with a final payment.

Matt was efficient and detail-oriented in his remodel work. His knowledge, professionalism and commitment to customer satisfaction shows and I am very happy with the two bathroom remodels he did for me. I would absolutely recommend him for any level of home remodeling/repair work as he's very clear on what he can do, how he will accomplish the work, and when he can get it done. Plus the finished product is outstanding!

I wanted my 1980’s bathroom remodeled. This was to include: removing shower wall material, removing floor tiles, removing & replacing toilet, raising shower head about 10 inches, replace shower hardware, new tiling from tub to ceiling with an accent strip, new floor tiling and installing shower doors. I received 3 different bids. Zac’s was the most affordable and I was very impressed with the Schlueter Systems water proofing that he always uses. As with many remodels, there was an unexpected problem that required fixing. Weakness in the subfloor with resultant leveling needed. Zac communicated expertly with pictures and explanations so I could understand. He gave the additional cost as well as time to do this before continuing on. The rest of the remodel went right along on target. I’m grateful for the artistic as well as perfectionism of the tiling and accent band and the floor tiling. The shower doors look amazing. The whole bathroom looks wonderful and I’m 100%+ satisfied with my remodel. Thanks again Zac!

We used David and his team for a guest bathroom remodel. The team was professional, punctual and courteous from the very beginning. Zach, in particular, was here each day delivering an excellent level of service, detail-oriented, thorough and high quality work and was a delight to work with. I’d definitely recommend this team for future jobs.

Jag and team met or exceeded every aspect of my bathroom addition. More than just a remodel, they helped me navigate city permits, drill new plumbing thru 12” of concrete in my residential condo complex foundation, move walls, install a new toilet, and tile a beautiful shower. This project has completely transformed our place and the quality of work is just beautiful. I highly recommend JS Innovative.

King Remodeling just competed a remodel of our guest bathroom, and we could not be more pleased. We received bids from 5 contractors but chose King Remodeling because he seemed to best understand our needs/desires, and had numerous photos of recent work that put his finishing touches on display. King Remodeling was also a little more clear as to the details of the final cost, our responsibility in the process, and what they had to offer. From the beginning: Ilan is very involved in the process from providing the estimate, design, choosing the right fixtures, and conducting final inspections at each stage. He actually saved us quite a bit of money by pointing us in the right direction for certain fixtures and final touches. His passion and desire to do the right thing for the customer should not be confused as a "hard-sell". When we had indecisions, Ilan gently provided options and recommendations, but was always willing to go with our choice. The Process: All the workers were very considerate, professional, extremely hard working, and detail oriented from beginning to end. The workmanship is excellent. It is a construction project, so of course there will be dust, but the workers in each phase did their absolute best in keeping it to a minimum. Final results: As stated above, our expectations have been exceeded. As a matter of fact, we are so pleased that we are now going to have King Remodeling do our Master bath, and are excited to begin that process. Without question, he was the right choice. I have no doubt that should we happen to find any problems/defects in the future, it will be resolved with a simple call to Ilan.

We recently remodeled our bathroom and hired Js on Thumbtack. We did tile, paint, electrical, plumbing, glass. It was a great choice all the way around. Aside from doing professional work we really appreciated the way Jag was always there to help us problem solve along the way. He is a wonderful guy with a real knack for taking care of his customers. We are thrilled with the end result and are planning to do more with this group. We highly recommend Js and are happy to talk to anyone who wants a reference.

I've worked with Zac on several different projects from totally remodeling two bathrooms, to carpentry work around my home and painting. He's very easy to work with explaining why things need to be done a certain way. Also giving me choices to help stay within a limited budget. He's on time, his work is done with pride and it shows in the quality of the completed job. Zac's my go to person for the many jobs I have to do around my home. I highly recommend him he is a "Jack of all Trades", trust worthy and a skilled professional.

I hired Michael Capito to remodel a bathroom. He and his nephew, Glen, make an outstanding team! There are many qualities I liked about them, but the top ones were: 1.) Easy to work with; 2.) Good communication; 3.) Reliability. Michael did what he said he will do and there were no games or hidden fees. He showed up on time and was focused at work. I never had any concerns about leaving him alone in my home. My neighbors gave me positive feedback about how nice Michael and Glen were. The quality of work was very high! I'd definitely hire Michael again.

Matthew at American Custom Builders did a remodel of my bathroom and him and his crew did an outstanding job. He listened to what we wanted, kept me fully updated on the progress, and was reasonably priced. Most importantly, he was honest and even gave me advice on where I could save money and I never felt like I was being taken advantage of like my other experiences with contracted work. He thoroughly explained what he was doing at all times. Plus he was flexible, when we made changes and was easy to talk to. He is a perfectionist and truly cares about the quality of his work. I've recommended him to my friends and would definitely hire him for future projects.

We have hired Julio for various jobs in 2018. The projects have included bathroom remodels, a kitchen remodel, replacing doors, baseboards, painting a main area and finally a fence project. Julio is very precise in his quotes and charges more for any minor changes or he says he will do it later on for free. Julios main strength is he always promises he will focus on one project at a time and will always be on site to directly monitor the work. This was a major advantage to us since we prefer to work with 1 person we trust vs multiple. Overall Julios work has been good and up to standard. That said for the kitchen, the cabinets 4months later are already deteriorating. For the paint job he did not remove an old thermostat in the wall during the work and we had to pay someone else to fix it after again minor details and again Julios quotes are very precise. Recently we had a fence project to do, Julio said the project was small and he would do the work himself. Julio dodged questions around the timeline for over a month for since our history we kept the work for him. Then when it came time for the work delayed the timeline a week more, finally came day of the work. We learned Julio had entirely passed on the project for 20% upcharge finders fee and did not at all monitor the work being done. Multiple times we had to remind or pay more for trash to be hauled or what to be gutted on the work he has done, again Julio is precise and upcharges if not told for this ahead of time. It appears when it comes to minor changes or timelines, Julio is very precise and asks for everything signed off or paid right away, but unfortunately he does not give the same treatment to his customers and their time. I suggest anyone working with Julio know you will get good work overall, but make sure everything is detailed and precise to start and make sure he tells you what work he will do himself directly. Also make sure what materials you pay for and where he gets his. We will not be using Julio again in the future.
