Extremely pleased with the professional services provided by Legacy Landscape. Gary was very thorough and accommodating to our coordination of scheduling services with other contractors. His great team lead by Juan did an amazing job sprucing up our front yard and totally redoing our back yard. Trees were cut down, bushes were pulled out, weeds were sprayed and grass was pulled up to prepare for our newly planted sod and Royal Palms. Juan's team was very diligent and cleaned up after everything. You would never even have known they were here. After planting 2 beautiful Royal Palms I decided I wanted 2 more and Gary had them installed the next day! We love our backyard Oasis and highly recommend Legacy Landscaping to anyone in Cape Coral. Thanks again, Gary, Juan, JP and the crew!!!

Absolutely amazing experience! Mike and Jose were awesome.

Adam was one of the first handymen or contractors I actually felt confident with. He was punctual, honest and even ran out to two separate hardware stores to find what we needed without billing us for his time/gas (I insisted additional payment). Will use him again.

Having just bought a home in Florida, I did not know any contractors, so I went to Thumbtack. I received many offers to do the work, and chose Smart Green. I made the right choice. Smart Green did not give me the lowest price, but the lower prices did not give me confidence the other bidders knew what they were doing. Rudy Cardozo's price was fair, so I knew he knew exactly what the job entailed. Many thanks for doing the job on time, and within budget. And, just an FYI, your associate worked his tail off!!

Greg and his team and Manatee flooring were amazing to work with from start to finish. We just built a new home and were in need of a contractor to install a kitchen backsplash for us. Greg responded to our inquiry immediately, and though we had a tile picked out, was able to steer us in the direction of a tile that was, for the same price, of higher quality and looks great! It took just a day and 1/2 for his team to complete the work, and Greg personally inspected the job to insure that the quality met our standards. We will hire Manatee Flooring again for our next tiling project.

I had Blaine remodel my condo kitchen last year and, then, totally rebuild my house that burned down this year. As the general contractor, he took care of getting permits, tearing down the old house, hiring and supervising sub-contractors and got everything done in a timely and professional manner. I have been very pleased with his work and highly recommend him as a building contractor to do any kind of construction work.

Best contractor experience ever! Always came on promised days and times. Work they have completed at our home: 3 new glass sliders replaced, 2 large windows replaced, new front door installed, and custom shelving in our linen closets. We hope to have them do our guest bathroom remodel later this year. Very meticulous and they strive for perfection.

    Arnulf was a life saver after two cowboy contractors had wrecked my house. He completely did my kitchen and bathrooms and I'm delighted with the results. I just wish I'd known about him when I started my renovation - it would have saved me a lot of time, money and heartache. MAW

    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.

    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.  

    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.
