I didn't have an opportunity to use Jason's services, as the situation was resolved. However, we communicated on several occasions. He was attentive, responsive and more than fair with his pricing. I have included him in my arsenal of contractors and whenever the need arises, I plan to call Berry's Home Improvement.

Walter came in as a last minute save the day contractor. He is a general contractor licensed and insured and came to fix mistakes of another contractor and fix my faucets install. He ended up doing an amazing job and added a sealer to my carrera marble vanity. I am using him again for my next project. He does what he says he will, sticks to price and exceeds expectations. NICE GUY overall. Don't look further!

I am an absentee landlord and needed a new water heater for a house in Sunnyside. Clear and timely communication is very important for me when hiring contractors. Edward responded to my calls very quickly, gave me complete information and arranged appointments with my tenant to bid and then perform the job. He used top quality materials and did a great job at a fair price. I will use him again for my plumbing needs.

Things that made this an easy experience: -He was quickly available to do the work. -He quoted me a fair price up front. -He asked for pictures so that over the phone he could tell me about things that could increase the cost before even coming out. There are a lot of contractors that worry about losing the work so they come out first and then start to explain things to you. It was nice to have that talk about my options before hand. It also meant when he came out he was prepared to do everything in one day. -He did the work quickly and was polite the whole time even when I turned the water on upstairs and accidentally got him soaked. -He never made me feel like he was in a rush or had to leave once he was done. I always save my questions for the end and even better he started explaining things to me that I was going to ask about before I even had to ask. 5 stars. I will be calling him for all my plumbing needs going forward.

Mr Roman has been one of the best contractors I've found on this app! After going through three plumbers he finally diagnosed the problem and completely fixed it so that the sewer ejector system is working and no more flooding problems. He did the work in a day, repaired any holes in the Sheetrock so that it looks brand new and cleaned up after his work. I hired him to solve some other problems that other plumbers had given up on and he tackled the jobs. I will consider him my go to call whenever I need help on my house from now on!

Rome did extensive indoor and outdoor painting work for us in AZ at three different residences that we owned between 2008 and 2014. He also assisted us with interior trim repair/replacement, fence repair and several other projects related to the appearance of our homes. In every instance we found his work to be of the highest quality, and his prices were very competitive. He also has a high level of personal integrity and fairness which sets him apart from many contractors in todays environment. One example of this is that my wife and I always provided Rome with a key to our house, trusting him to start or stop each days work and lock up, even if we were not around at the end of the day. He is a detail orientated perfectionist when it comes to his paint work and I can recommend him without any resrvation to anyone looking for the highest quality of paint, plaster or woodwork.

I contacted Spirit Contracting to redo a renovation of my bathroom, after another contractor, who I contracted via Thumbtack, did a horrendous job. Frankie was early to the appointment, patient, went thru the entire job that was completed and advised what needed to be redone. They did an amazing job getting my bathroom completed! I cannot believe the difference!! Spirit Contracting is the way to go!! They were professional, punctual, clean and great to work with. Frankie is honest and pays attention to the littlest details and stands behind his work 1000%. I would most definitely recommend this company and plan on using their services in the future!

This was my second time using thumbtack to hire a house cleaner. The first company I hired I wasn’t impressed and was discouraged. I gave it a shot and hired her and I am VERY satisfied! She came in and asked questions making sure she hit all the areas I wanted deep cleaned. She left my walls, floors and house looking spotless and smelling pleasant! I like the job she has done sooo much that I have hired her permanently. I’m looking forward to the days she cleans my home!

My wife and I fell in love with large format porcelain plank tiles (8x47). Claude was the 4th contractor to look at the job, and the 1st who agreed to work with tiles that size. He is extremely busy with jobs, so be patient, but very much worth the wait. The tile looks great. Size of the job was roughly 200 sq ft. A big thank you to Claude and his guys.

I worked with Bharti for the design of my personal executive office space.  We agreed on a flat fee rate, which I found to be desirable so that I could include the fee in the budget and not be surprised at the end.  Bharti visited the space, received input on my ideas and tastes, and then created a visual plan with suggested colors, furniture placement, window treatments, etc.  Her initial plan was right on and she made recommendations that were consistent with what I liked, but also offered things that I had not thought of, which is what you hope for in using a designer.  Bharti also arranged for contractors to complete painting, etc. and was helpful in moving the project along.  She is delightful to work with, thorough, professional, and goes above and beyond in seeing the project to completion. When my wife saw the office, she couldn’t believe the transformation; it is very warm and inviting. We were so pleased with Bharti, we have asked her to design some rooms at our home as well. I enthusiastically recommend Bharti for your interior design needs!

Working with Jenine Beck Design was simply a dream. She is a highly talented designer with amazing ideas. However, she listens keenly to what the client wants--and incorporates their ideas into the plan. Jenine re-designed our entire bedroom. She put together a plan which completely transformed what we had, into an idyllic, contemporary oasis. She brought in tried, trusted and tested contractors--who were a pleasure to work with--and together, they executed her/our vision. The result completely blew us away--way beyond our expectations. Jenine worked within our budget--but did not in any way sacrifice style--she has fantastic networks with suppliers, so we were able to get luxury items at great prices. She was there with the contractors (builders, painters etc) every step of the way--and we did not have to worry at all about any of the work being done. She was the go-to person for everything--and she managed all the sub-contracts. At a personal level, Jenine is special. A kind and caring designer--and a perfectionist. She is very sensitive to client preferences and she makes working with her very easy. Rarely do I make unequivocal recommendations, but in Jenine's case, I am. You will be hard-pressed to find a better or more talented designer than her in the area. If you have a design job, small or large, I HIGHLY recommend that you reach out to her. You will not regret it. She changed our room--and with that, changed our lives.

First of all Galaxy 1 home improvement were excellent!! I had a bad experience with a contractor in the past and I was looking for someone to do my kitchen but hesitate with the contractors I got an estimate from. Either their price was not what I could afford or their paperwork was not correct for what the coop wanted. Mr. Gary Singh was pleasant, respectful & professional from the first time we met and had all correct paperwork. Mr. Gary kept good on what he plan to do with my kitchen & the rest of my place. Him and the guys that worked on my place are trustworthy,respectful and professional. I recommend him and his crew 100%.

I highly recommend Carlos for any home improvement project that you need-----whether it is large or small. He is a meticulous craftsman and general contractor, and has done beautiful carpentry, wonderful tile work and lovely bathroom renovations including sinks, faucets, vanities and granite counter tops. My favorite renovation involved my kitchen. He removed all existing cabinets and appliances, and installed an excuisite kitchen which included cabinets, sink and faucet, appliances, painting and tile.. I know when I contract Carlos to do a job, he will be a pleasure to work with, and the job will be done neatly and impeccably, in a reasonable time frame, and with a fair price. I am very fussy, so I know you will be thrilled with any project that you give him..

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.

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.
