Instant on hot water heater failed due to poor installation by another contractor. Job included consultation, installation to code, upgrade of circuit breaker, addition of junction box, and replacing improper wiring. Background: this is a vacation rental unit I have in Miramar. Guests arrived to find hot water not working. Mr. Raffael took my call at 9:30pm on a Friday, and agreed to be at the unit at around 10am the next morning. He continued to stay in contact the following morning as he progressed towards the house, arrived at the agreed upon time, assessed the situation and provided an estimate of parts, labor and time to complete the job. He completed the work as agreed. Documented it in writing and with pics. In Summary: He helped me in an emergency - accepted a very late call, and quickly delivered a solution. I am 100% satisfied, and would most certainly call on him again, and recommend him to others. Thank you Mr. Raffael.

Dave 21 contacted me within minutes of my request. He offered to come to do the job on a Sunday. He was great with communication and answered my questions about parts via text. He came on time. He did a great job replacing the garbage disposal and fixing 3 toilets. I highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.

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.

Pete is a great guy! I felt very comfortable with him in my home, and was impressed with how professional and knowledgeable he was. I had him hang a door for me, and he explained my options about the threshold, color/material etc. I was very apprehensive about getting a contractor on-line, but I was more than happy with him. He is very reasonable and I definitely recommend him.

I am first-time Thumbtack user and Angel and Cristina have been by far my best experience using a contractor EVER. I got laminate, tile and carpet removed, then luxury vinyl installed in the whole apartment. Super responsive, very competitive prices, and super punctual, quick and professional. Great communication. I am very happy with my new flooring and will 100% vouch for their work any day.

Will use again! ***** 5 stars. I used another contractor off thumbtack who no showed me....I had worked Christmas night busting up tile, had an appointment set two weeks in advance and I called Mike out of desperation. My pregnant wife was at the in laws, along with my dogs, and I have a huge New Years party with family in from out of town to throw at the house and no tile or carpet in it. It took Mike and his team just two days to lay down 460 square foot of porcelain tile with grout, along with new baseboards. And it looks absolutely incredible. He heard my sob story, showed compassion, and cared about the project and gave me a very good price when he knew I was in a pickle and could have up charged me...but he didn't. I am completely embarrassed I didn't hire him to begin with on this app. Now I know for next time. Easy communication, and they pick up after themselves. Thanks again Mike! The wife and I are absolutely beside ourselves on the incredible job. The New Years party goes on!!

I highly recommend Leo and his wife Nery! They are punctual, professional, and take great pride in their work. I received a quote for installing and painting interior doors the same day I reached out. Since I don't live in Miami, Leo kept me informed via phone and sent me pictures of the progress on a daily basis. Leo and Nery worked very fast and did an excellent job. Leo customized some doors to make them fit in uneven and non-standard openings. They even swept all the dirt that the previous contractors left behind. We are very impressed with the quality of work and their professionalism from beginning to end. We will definitely hire them again for future needs.

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.

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!

All Around Builders handled our reno of a 3,400 sq ft condo in downtown Fort Lauderdale and did an outstanding job. I am in real estate and have dealt with numerous contractors over the last 3 decades and Robert and his team are clearly top notch among them. He was tremendously flexible and able to handle all requests in a timely manner. More importantly, he used his vast experience to make suggestions that ultimately saved us money and resulted in a better product over all. We trusted his entire team and had no reservations about letting them have full access of our home even after we moved in with our 2 dogs. They were respectful of our space and diligent in the work. They were always responsive, and addressed all our concerns. They even patiently dealt with my picky wife, and always with a smile. We are very satisfied customers and would highly recommend them.

The 5 star rating is well deserved and I would heartily recommend Kitchen Ready Cabinets to others. The timeline we agreed on was fulfilled and the guys were always on schedule. Never had to follow up and "chase" anyone, which I have experienced in past with many contractors - luckily this time I did not have to deal with that stress. Apart from that , the price and quality is unbeatable... I contacted several specialists for this job and I got the best value for money from Kitchen Ready Cabinets. I will sure be using this Company for all my future renovations as they also do closets, bathroom vanities, etc.

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.
