Outstanding job. Set our appointment & was there on time. Fixed the problem, made it better than it was. Also took time to make a trip to Home Depot. Gabriel also looked at a couple other issues w/no hesitation. Just as important was my wife & new born were asleep. Gabriel and his crew were super sensitive to that. Thank you. Highly recommended

T.J. at House To Home is an expert tradesman. He's highly versed in all things home-improvement, honest, accessible, communicative, and very efficient. We had a dryer vent installed into/out of the wall of our old craftsman home (that had never previously been done) and T.J solved all problems with ease and finesse. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Roger is a true professional and his performances are outstanding . Initially, l requested his service for installing a security light, while he was completing that job he performed other home improvements around the house . He has demonstrated enormous enthusiasm ,energy and willingness to take several tasks and responsibilities simultaneously . He is very honest, polite and courteous and a true gentleman which is an important criteria for me. Roger is a great person to work with. He is very detail oriented and his fees are very reasonable . I give him a high recommendation . I am looking forward to continue my collaboration with him and in fact I have already appointed him as my property manager.

Houman helped us improve our home by removing a large, outdated fireplace and chimney.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

Glad I hired Rob instead of taking the advice of my plumbing company to replace my two toilets. Rob fixed them and only replaced faulty parts, saving me lots of money. Communicating with Rob was very convenient. He asked I text him pictures of the toilet parts. He then researched them and order replacement parts on my behalf, thus saving me time as well. I will definitely retain Rob's services for future maintenance and remodeling work for my home. Great guy to have a conversation with too :)

When we purchased our house 6 months ago, one of our first tasks at the house was to remodel the master bathroom and bedroom. We wanted to replace the existing carpet with a new wood floor, new coat of paint, crown molding and in-wall storage cabinets and in the bathroom, we wanted to basically tear down everything and to rebuild it including the new shower, bathtub, paint, vanity with double sink, new tile all around and new heated floor. We met and interviewed quite a few home improvement contractors and Excel Construction was one of them and our interaction with Eyal placed them at the higher place above the other ones based on their price, design, skills and honesty. We loved the 3D design that he did for us which integrated the summery of all our meetings and it proved that he clearly understood my vision. After we hired Eyal, I can’t write here enough about his level of experience, his capabilities and his quick responsiveness to my calls or emails. The remodeling job took a little less than 4 weeks and all the working people including Eyal were always there, working and checking the work, supervising his team who were top notch and working efficiently. We still love the remodeling job that they did for us and we highly recommend Eyal, the working team and the office staff that were involved in this remodeling. For our next remodeling project, we will definitely call Eyal again. Thank you!!

Debby did an amazing make-over of several rooms in our home - a 400 sq ft sunroom, a living room, converted a spare bedroom into an office, a guest room and, most recently, master bedroom and bathroom. She makes incredible improvements in the use of space and her design ideas and choice of colors and fabric are fresh and interesting. She also comes up with cost-saving ideas to use some of our existing furniture and accessories. She managerd the contractor jobs, ensurinng professional and on-time work. Debby is a joy to work with, and we are absolutely delighted with the transformation she has made to our home.

My in-wall shower suddenly would not fully shut off. I thought that something in the valves in the wall would have to be replaced. Of the several plumbers that replied, Jesus gave me what sounded like a reasonable quote for the estimated work to be completed, fully disclosing that if the work turned out to be bigger than expected, the rate would be proportionally higher. Jesus had great communication, quickly responding via calls and/or texts. He arrived ahead of schedule the following day. He was polite, professional, and did not hesitate to answer all the questions that I had. He quickly saw that the shower valves needed to be replaced, and reassured me that this could be done without opening up the walls. He fixed the problem as agreed upon, and even helped me with a little side problem I had with an outdoor hose bib. I found Jesus to be punctual, have a good work ethic, and I would recommend Jesus for future plumbing jobs.

Me and my wife were very pleased and surprise on how our entire home remodel came out these guys can do everything and anything they promised and HGTV Home and they were right it actually went beyond that. Our custom kitchens was to die for ! bathrooms came out fabulous for they even customized bunk beds for our two boys amazing!!! They also have us home furnishings to earn our business wow!! and very easy to work with, any concern we had got dealt with immediately. No Brainer Great price for all we got. La Rocca Builder along with Grandeur Construction Management Team (team that works with La Rocca hand in hand ) were the best choice we made. What we learned is that any contractor that says they can do it all is not being realistic you have to pick the best of the best and both these teams made or dreams a reality. Highly recommend them to anyone seeking remodeling work.

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.
