Guys came out to hang a ceiling fan in 2 story living room. They brought out scaffolding, put down pads underneath and were very courteous and professional. They completed the job on time and even cleaned up after themselves (sadly something many contractors forget nowadays)

This guy is awesome! He gives you an estimate, does what he says he's going to do and does it to perfection! He is professional, friendly and an expert in his craft. His dad is pretty awesome too :) I hired him to fix a leak and install a new farmhouse sink and faucet in my circa 1920 home. I am going to hire him again to install a gas fireplace. Definitely the best experience I've had with a contractor in a long time!

I have used many contractors over the years. I can not say enough good things about Alvarez Electric. They were beyond professional, accommodating, and very good at what they did. I had an out of the ordinary electrical project, and their problem solving abilities and commitment toward addressing my needs was extraordinary. I highly recommend them.

We used southern door and trim to install some chair rail and replace some window sills. He did such a great job we hired him again to trim out all the windows in our house and had him do a custom design to our master door and hallway area. His prices are very fair and he does great work. Even cleaned up my driveway from sawdust which is hard to find contractors who treat your house like their house. Next we will be using him for crown molding !!!!

I just wanted to leave few words about the shopping experience we had with Nelson. Our project was a complete repainting and reflooring of our house plus few other minor improvements. While we did not award this project to Nelson and his team I want to say thank you to him for being very thorough with the project, answering all of our question and providing competitive quote. He was very professional and helpful with all of our requirements and he was out first choice out of 4 contractors to do this project. Thank you and good luck. Steve

Lou is an amazing handyman. He is very professional, he came in and assessed the project and provided me with a quote, even though he encountered a lot of issues due to the previous contractors work he still maintained his original assessment and completed the project with professionalism. I will be contacting him again for my future projects for sure and i would advise the next client to do the same.

Juan was absolutely fantastic to have. He painted the entire inside of out Home, the garage door, front door, and window shutters for us. All was done with absolute professionalism. Also, we had to move his start date multiple times because of other contractors taking longer than expected and he was always open and willing to be flexible with us. Thanks again!!!

Justin and his crew were great to work with. My husband and I live in California, so most of our communication with Justin was via texting, email, and phone calls. Justin gave us daily status updates and sent lots of pictures. The high level of communication was amazing. It is very difficult managing a property from the other side of the country and Justin made the process very enjoyable/seamless. I would recommend Justin to anyone in the area. Justin responded to our initial Thumbtack request immediately and from our first contact, showed exceptional communication skills. When I arrived at the house, I was very pleased with the workmanship. Justin is a great contractor and certainly set the bar for all of the other contractors we have come in contact with. I thank Thumbtack very much for connecting us! Thank you

I hired Jeff to install two fans that another contractor could not do. The first fan had so many wires attached that Jeff had to test them all and determine where they were going. Then he took the old box out and put in a new one. He ran into several problems but he did not give up! Then , moving to the second fan. this one had even more issues. My ceiling was damaged by Irma and the contractor that fixed my ceiling closed up the hole where the ceiling fan was. Jeff had to make a new opening and install a new box. Then, there was a part missing and Jeff went to his truck and fashioned the missing part out of what he had in his truck. Then he put it together and started the fan but it was wobbling, so, Jeff took it apart and started over. Jeff tested out every part of this fan until he had it up and working perfectly. He does not give up at all. He will find a way to make it work. I would highly recommend him to do the projects that you have to do. You will not be disappointed!!!

Sylvester just finished our popcorn removal and painting of our entire house and of remodeling of our bathroom counters and cabinets, I am so happy with the results, I felt compelled to write a review. A lot of times, people only write reviews for bad service or work that was poorly done, so I thought I'd take the time to recognize some excellent work. I was beyond impressed with Sylvester. After we had a lot of trouble with another contractor doing our kitchen counters and cabinets, we knew we had to find someone different for our bathrooms and other things we needed done. We had at least 4 different contractors come over to check out the job and give us quotes. Sylvester actually came in at the best price. On top of that, he really worked with us to get it within our budget. With a baby on the way and limited funds, his flexibility was MUCH appreciated. Not one of the other contractors was willing to work with us in that way. I would definitely hire Sylvester again, He was such a pleasure to work with. He's just a great guy all around and his work was way better than we could have hoped for. I'd say we got more than expected for the money we paid.

Rafeek is amazing. He did a wonderful job. If you are looking for assembly line work - this is not the place. Rafeek is truly an artist/designer - he is meticulous in the work he does. He installed a lovely mosaic backsplash for me with a tile and compartment boarder - the cuts are perfectly matched. He even accompanied me to the store to ensure I had exactly what would be needed. He was very neat and incredibly knowledgeable. I love my kitchen. If you have the time to allow for an exemplary job that cannot be topped,my recommendation could not be higher for this gentleman. He will take his time to ensure the work is excellent and nothing less. You get the best of both worlds, a designer and a contractor.

Where should I begin?! James was absolutely AMAZING! I had a very unexpected ER in my family and he made the time to not only get the original task done BUT I asked for add on's and he took them on with a smile on his face. He's truly a great professional who is passionate about his work and shows true pride. He made me feel comfortable knowing that the flooring was way over due and I was embarrassed. He brought his Dad, Mark for some bonding time and helper JJ for the last day. Everyone was so friendly and warm, wonderful people. Pricing is competitive and the craftsmanship is top notch. I feel very fortunate to have met a great company. I would and will recommend him and Cavalier Contractors to anyone that needs work done! I promise you won't regret it! Smiles from ear to ear! Thank you James, Mark and JJ. I can bring my father home, thanks to your hard work and dedication on a tight schedule!!

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.

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.
