Edward did a great job for me. He was very timely in his initial response and quoted a fair price that he adhered to. He showed up on time with all materials (I hate it when contractors ask you to buy materials) and did a very clean and thorough job. Would definitely use in the future as it's very difficult to find reliable contractors in S Florida.

I had been looking for painters for a rather difficult job and I needed it done ASAP. I needed a 3 bedroom mobile painted that was previously lived in by a heavy smoker, and I needed to have the job done over the weekend. Out of all the contractors that I met, Fabian was the only one that had no issues meeting my needs. Wet met on a Friday and he was at my house the next day on Saturday at 9am. Fabian and his team (Kevin and Alton) were amazing and so professional. The job was done in a day and a half (other contractors said 4 days). They probably would have finished in one day if there weren't any hiccups. Even though there were some issues that arose they were handled professionally and quickly. I found Fabian to be honest and personable and I personally like that in contracters. I Highly, Highly recommend Fabian and his team. You won't be disappointed.

Eddy impressed me at every stage of the project, from the prompt estimate to his last day of work. He suffered several days in my terrible bathroom: the constantly barking dog, wicked heat, and multiple obstacles. My bathroom had tiles from the 1930s, and Eddy found at least 3 very unusual plumbing/building choices (weird wall material, toilet roughin too close to the door, duct tape inside the bathtub!). This job was much more difficult than he expected I'm sure, and another contractor might have found excuses to stay away ... Eddy worked six long days on a total renovation AND had a text message conversation with me a couple days later to answer a couple more questions. He was also great at communicating about problems and decisions when they came up -- no bad surprises! Eddy will work really hard to make sure you get the bathroom you want, at the cost he tells you to expect.

Thank you Leo for being honest by telling me and my husband that we only have one layer of shingles on our roof and we could apply a second layer of shingles which you and your team saved us a whole lot of money and you met our spending budget when other contractors told us we had to remove the complete shingles and start by scratch. Leo and he's team was very honest clean and on time. I highly recommend Leo and will use him again.

Very much a pro, great price and stuck to it. didn't have "that's an extra charge" as others had said to me. Excellent work, finished 1day early! Slighty scratched the cabinate when measuring in the template for Farmers sink but fixed it very well with no problem, other contractor I had estimate job would not hang in the undermount sink! Great selection, would highly recommend and gladly use again.

First, Jhon was very competitive in his price, accommodating to my schedule, and far exceeded what I thought the ceiling could be. I enjoyed working with Jhon and his team. By far exceeded my expectations. I had a house was smoke damaged from years of cigarette smoke. Jhon was able to remove the popcorn ceiling, fix the weak spots in the house, skim coat the ceiling and painted. The house smells new, looks incredible, and I was able to hang ceiling fans. Jhon was very professional, made certain to remove his waste and clean at the end of each visit. I could not have imagined a better contractor to work with. This is going to be my residence for at least ten years, and Jhon was instrumental in making my house into a home for my family. Thank you to Jhon and his team. I'm glad everyday I come home. I will hire you again for the next project.

My husband and I have been wanting a fence for years, but we did not want to spend an arm and a leg on it. We decided to put up a 6-foot shadow box wood and go with an independent contractor as opposed to a big company. Durany was the first to come out and give me an estimate within 24 hours of posting my request here on Thumbtack. I signed the contract, and he gave me a detailed list of items to buy. He began work within a few days, and our fence was up in a week. It is well-built, sturdy, and beautiful.

A kitchen cabinet fell off the wall and Shawn came the same day that we spoke. He secured the cabinet with longer screws and checked all others to make sure they were secure. He was professional, respectfull, honest and a value. I definitely would recommend him to my friends. I’ve had other contractors that did work for me that I Will Not recommend because of faulty work. But Robertson Home Improvements I willll recommend. Thank you, glad I found you for any future work.

Danillo is a skilled, smart, caring, and careful contractor. He came to work for us when our first contractor injured his back and could no longer work. Our home had been demolished. Slowly and carefully Danillo put it back together again. He did everything: the plumbing, the tile work, the painting, and the carpentry work. And he did it all while respecting the house and the people who live there. His past history of building g houses in Brazil served him and us well! His charges were very fair. In addition he is a most pleasant person. I recommend him highly!

We hired Rapid Construction to remodel our pool and patio. They helped turn our dreams into a reality! They stayed on budget and remained in contact throughout the project. Staff is professional and they are very organized. Their pricing wasn’t the cheapest but definitely worth the money. I would reccomend anyone looking for a General contractor to give them a call.

If you are looking for a residential/commercial contractor to provide quality remodeling services in the South Florida area, then you should consider calling Mr. Luis Briceno of the Done-Rite Handyman Service Company in Boca Raton, Florida. Luis is an extremely hard working and efficient professional that you can count on to provide high-quality and reliable services at a fair and reasonable price. I recently had him renovate my home by replacing the entire floor throughout the home with porcelain tile and installing brand new kitchen cabinets that included a complete re-design of the kitchen layout. He also rebuilt the bathroom by removing the old bathtub and antiquated wall tiles and replacing them with a custom built shower with sliding glass doors and brand new tiling from floor to ceiling. Luis and his team work independently throughout the home performing all electrical, plumbing, carpentry, drywall, stucco and painting work to eliminate the need for having to deal with more than one company to complete a project. He is extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating in all aspects of operations. I highly recommend contacting him if you are interested in remodeling your home or office.

Cecil just built a composite wooden deck for us, and did a super clean job and great looking deck, we couldn't have asked for a better contractor! It is so hard to find trust worthy people in the Miami area that really do a good job, we met several contractors for the same job and most were more expensive and were doing less quality job (based on the photos they showed us). Cecil was very responsive, very reliable, listened to us but also gave us good recommendations. We really are super happy to have worked with him, the deck was done when we asked and it only took them a weekend!

I had a great experience with Bill Monroy at Gemco USA.. He came into my project in the middle of it after I fired my first GC. Bill was professional, courteous, reliable, and efficient. Trust me hiring the wrong contractor is a nightmare ... But you cannot go wrong with Gemco, their expertise combined with speediness is unrivaled.

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.
