The contractor correctly diagnosed that the reason my gutters were leaking is the drip edge was on the top of the underlayment and the underlayment needed to be on top of the drip edge. He was honest and told me the underlayment needed to be fixed all the way around the roof and he didn't have time that day so he charged me a reduced rate for just doing the inspection. I contacted my roofing company and they sent someone out to fix it at no cost to me so I was very happy to benefit from the contractors expertise! The contractor was late to our appointment though otherwise I would have given him 5 stars.

Johnathan did a fantastic job for us. As a general contractor we have used several plumbing subcontractors. We were very impressed with the "get the job done" attitude and the quality of work we received. He was very professional and kept us informed with the jobs progress. We will definitely be using him again.

Wed Aug 16, 8:18 PM If you’re contemplating hiring a good General Contractor, Daniel Gonzalez and his construction teams are your guys! We hired Daniel to finish 1,300 square feet including an extra bedroom, laundry area, storage room and quilt studio in our basement. Daniel gave a fair quote and he brought top notch teams and hard working guys to the project! His electrician did an excellent job installing all new electrical; and his HVAC guy ran new heat ducts and installed a whole house humidifier. The plumber ran new plumbing for a utility sink and washing machine. The framer did a fabulous job independently building our design to our exact specifications and even added decorative arches. The drywall guys hauled in heavy drywall sheets one-by-one because it wouldn’t fit into our window wells. The drywall installers got 4 rooms put up in one and ½ days! The tapers and texture's did an excellent job taping drywall seams and adding texture in less than two days for each team. Daniel’s crews showed up on time, they were respectful, trustworthy, and we appreciated how hard they all worked to get the job done in a timely manner. Daniel and his trim and paint team did an excellent job painting, installing our flooring, trim, doors, hardware and window ledges. Best of all, Daniel is an honest guy and does what he agrees to do. Treat these guys right and they’ll treat you right! Great job! We love our new space! Thanks Daniel!

Hire This company! Hire Jake & his brother! I had the nightmare of nightmare general contractors come into my home and leave it in shambles. The electrical was left dangerously disorganized. Jake and his brother showed up and worked around the clock to make sure the whole house was 100% safe and ready to go for me and my family. It feels great knowing people like Jake have your back and will make your home safe secure modern and functioning exactly as you like. I’ll use these guys again and again. Thanks for your work guys! Family run, licensed and professional beyond

My experience with LRL was excellent! Logan's service went above and beyond what I expected, and he made my satisfaction a priority. Throughout the project he kept constant communication to make sure it was exactly as I wanted, and he even made suggestions that I hadn't even known to be an option. It is safe to say I will choose LRL for ALL of my future projects. I highly advise anyone looking for a contractor to pick LRL Construction, you will not be disappointed!

Brett, and team, completely renovated my old (1942) basement including new floors, drywall ceiling, lighting, painting, tile work, and much more. The attached pictures show the high quality of their work, but that is just the surface. Brett is unlike any other contractor I've met. He is extremely professional, quick in communication, always has a positive attitude, and was a joy to work with. Brett was full of recommendations and advice, and made this project feel like a partnership instead of a burden on my shoulders. I highly recommend Brett as a partner for any home renovation project you are looking to tackle.

I am very pleased to have found Kenny and hire him to completely remodel our bathroom, in which he did a fantastic job overcoming numerous obstacles requiring him to think outside the box to resolve numerous issues on an older bathroom. Prior to hiring Kenny I had obtained several estimates on the job from other contractors. I found his estimate to be reasonable and comparable to other contractors and certainly not the highest estimate. I decided to hire Kenny because he seemed to be the most confident and knowledgeable of the contractors I met with. I am very pleased with Kenny's work and would describe him as an expert at what he does. He has the ability and craft to fix difficult issues and find work arounds to complex problems that may have stumped other contractors. He is very experienced. In addition to all this Kenny is a very pleasant, good natured, and kind person to have around. He spent several weeks working on this project and was in and out of our house frequently. He was very respectful of our family and fun to talk to. I would hire Kenny again. He would be the first contractor I would call.

Francisco Garcia built our home in Fort Collins, Colorado. It took approximately 6 months to build a very sound home and we were out of state during the process. Francisco communicated with us regularly with updates on the process of our home and his sub contractors were very good. He completed all the items on the punch list in a timely fashion. Francisco is a very fine person to work have build your home.

Jim has remodeled and added onto my home several times. His character, knowledge and professionalism are personally beyond reproach and he is the most thorough contractor I have ever engaged. His work is as good as I have seen. I am a retired architect and have added onto or remodeled several homes in my life. The experience with Jim and his subs was the best ever. Jim and I already have an agreement that he will return when I am ready to build another 1,500 square foot addition that I have drawn up.

We reached out looking for a general contractor to assist us in our effort to build our dream home. Austin met with us on our property and was very professional, prompt and courteous. He listened to our desires, walked through our basic design documents, discussed with us the capabilities of his company. By the time we left, we knew we had found our contractor. We are looking forward to working with him through the build in early 2019. Austin is exactly what we needed and what we were looking for to build our dream home.

We hired LSE Builders to finish our existing basement. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about Steven the owner and Chris the project manager, as well as all the suppliers and contractors they work with. To start with, the whole process was very transparent and they use technology effectively in order to share all the bids, invoices, and receipts. Secondly, they performed amazingly well given our aggressive timeframe. Even with delays from the city, they finished the entire project in well under 3 months as promised. This is especially impressive given the very busy time contractors are having right now in the Boulder area. The finished product includes two additional bedrooms, a rec room, and a full bathroom. The finishing touches, in particular, turned out very well… the tile work, the carpentry, the lighting, etc. The project went very well and exceeded our expectations. Steven and Chris were both very professional and never hesitated to address any concerns we had. We highly recommend LSE!

Dan and his crew helped remove a potentially load bearing wall and various electrical upgrades in a pre-1900's home. He was able to start and complete the job within my semi-short timeframe (about one week's notice), was on time, clean, and the finished product was exactly what we hoped for!

As a plumbers do business owner, I have worked with DADS on many jobs. From my experience with general contractors he is by far one of the best around. You will save thousands hiring him because unlike other contractors DADS limits their use on sub contractors for specific jobs (designing, framing, structural, drywall, texturing and many more) Meaning he has the experience and knowledge to do most of the work himself helping save customers thousands of dollars. Not only is his work excellent but most importantly his integrity is first class and makes sure your satisfied from beginning to end and beyond. Very friendly and easy to work with! I only refer top notch contractors to people

    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.

    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.

    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.
