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.

What can I say...this all started with just replacing our floors in a home from 1964 we purchased and turned into a complete interior renovation where literally every surface was redone except for the windows. We decided to expand our project little by little asking more and more questions and Gabriel was right on top of it helping us to make easy decisions. In the end, essentially redoing the whole house removing all traces of the 60's was on tap for before we moved in. Now that it is done, I can say Gabriel and crew successfully turned an old dated house into a gorgeous new space and he and crew are the best crew in the world in my opinion. Not only Gabriel but ALL of his crew have gone out of their way to make sure we were happy and to make sure the job is done right. Gabriel is incredibly trustworthy as others have stated and his crew feel like family to my wife and I at this point. Our project took around 3.5 months including all permits from the city and everything is up to code. That is a VERY fast turnaround considering the scope of work involved...just waiting for permits took 3 weeks out of that project time alone. Basically, these guys were flying the whole time doing great work across the board and we are very happy customers. If you're reading this know that Gabriel and his crew and Luis with Conquer Builders (the General Contractor) are responsive, honest, proud, ethical, hardworking people who will do what needs to be done to make you happy. As expected with a project of this scope, surprises came up and there was never a moment where all hope or control was lost - there was always a plan to push on through and get it done, again, at breakneck pace. I could not recommend W&B, Gabriel, his crew or Luis @ Conquer Builders high enough. It is and has been a pleasure to work with them and we will absolutely be using them in the future. Internet reviews are often shady because you know their friends and family probably write bogus reviews and try to make them seem like they're something they are not but these guys are the real deal. You have zero worries hiring this company; I am not a family member writing this to boost their ratings, I am a very happy customer whose home is listed in the photos. We have cats and with every room being worked on, it was a HUGE concern of ours that they did not get out..Gabriel and crew respected the "safe room" boundaries and worked around it. If they needed to get in that room, they would let me know and I could come by and move the cats to another room so they could work. Most contractors do not care and will do whatever they want and not pay attention and listen to the homeowners...not these guys! Thank you for building our sofl paradise! Now we can unpack! :)

Roberto is very knowledgeable professional. As a retired military man he showed extreme work ethic. Even though we ran into snag related to my house writing, he did not eat or take breaks until he had the job done for me. He teaches and informs you as the home owner and explains the task at hand. Fee was very reasonable and well worth the time and effort. I am typically a skeptic with contractors. I was proven wrong this time. I not only found a great handyman but also a friend. Thanks Roberto!

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.

Our home is eight years old and needed a facelift. Richard painted the entire residence top to bottom. Since the original job was not prepped correctly Richard had a lot of extra work and did it right! He is neat and clean, thorough and skilled in his work. He brings a good eye to the party and helped us decide colors, decorative touches and make decisions on the journey. He also helped with a couple of side projects...a wealth of general construction knowledge! The job was finished on time, on budget.

I selected KJ Marble & Tile to completely renovate two bathrooms. As a novice in bathroom remodeling, and not knowing exactly what I wanted, Mr. King was there to assist by asking the right questions to help me in my decision-making. Mr. King provided well detailed estimates, allowing me to stay within my planned budget. I found other companies’ estimates to be over-priced. KJ Marble also included lifetime shower glass and used top grade supplies, such as stain/mold resistant grout. I felt we worked well as a team – guiding me through each step of the process. Mr. King managed the use of sub-contractors as needed for the job, and ensured their work was impeccably done. Mr. King has a meticulous eye for detail, ensuring the workmanship is of the highest quality. I highly recommend KJ Marble & Tile. My bathrooms are AWESOME!!!

My wife and I really enjoyed working with Joey, he was very professional and knowledgeable. We’ve bought other properties and had inspections before but the report we received from Joey is by far the best. The report included pictures and descriptions of every item tested as well as general pictures helping to show the complete story of the state of the property. An issue was found with the shower and with this detailed support we were able to get a credit from the seller without any issues. In addition to the very detailed report Joey was very timely and flexible to meet our needs. He even cane out a second time to see if the sellers had corrected an issue. All around I would strongly recommend him and hope to have him work with us on other projects.

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.

Nigel is courteous, prompt, and does good work. We had him install regular windows and remove crank windows in our bedroom. We intend to hire him for other projects down the road. Don't hesitate to contact Nigel for your home repairs. After dealing with other contractors who never kept appointments or fell off the face of the earth, or price gauged, it was refreshing to find a good person to work with.

I called a previously employed contractors named Milan and Son who did a terrible job and destroyed my carpet and bathroom. I had to kick them out of my house. Stay away from Andre and Felix and Antonio. They completely ruined the work. I almost gave up on Thumbtack but I decided to give Thumbtack another chance. So I contacted Rick Ricketts Home Remodeling Repairs. And he came over that same night and took a look at the shoddy work Milan and Son did. Rick said he can correct all the problems and he did a fantastic job. Professional and clean. And he did it for a reasonable price even though there was a lot more work to do. So definitely I would hire Rick again.

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.

I contacted Sunset to get a proposal for renovating a kitchen. Their response was excellent. The contractor and the electrician both came out to review the kitchen. I received the proposal quickly and it was very thorough. Alonso has some great ideas on layout and the overall looks. I am still in the planning stages, but I do recommend this contractor for their response, knowledge, and assistance.

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.
