Johnny’s team did a great job overall with the floors. There is room for improvement, however. The team had to break up some tile in my condo and a lot of dust was generated during this process. His guys did not cover anything in the home and everything was covered in dust. Prior to this work I asked if I needed to do anything and was told no; they would take care of it all. I was left cleaning up a lot of dust throughout the house, which could have avoided if things were simply covered. His communication also needs to improve. I had to keep checking on updates. The project also took a little longer than expected, which I was not happy about. Despite the issues experienced, the workers were very friendly. Ben did most of the work and he was very professional.

George arrived at my home 15 minutes before his scheduled appt. at 9:00am to repair/replace my toilet fixtures. George came completed the job, cleaned up the area, and made sure it was working properly. Plus, the price was PERFECT. Within a couple of hours he did a follow up text to make sure everything was still working properly. Excellent. I will call him for future repairs. Thanks, Corey

I called Mr. Johnson after receiving a quote for work I needed at our home. We had problems with 4 doors and needed weather stripping on three of them and repair on one. Mr. Johnson provided a quote via thumbtack and I spoke to him the next day (a Sunday). I made an appointment for 10:30 the next day and Ray showed up on time and we discussed the work I needed done. Ray not only did the repairs quickly and to my satisfaction, but took the time to explain exactly what he did and ensure that I was happy with the results. Ray also went above and beyond the requested work by taking extra steps to make sure our doors were "draft free." Ray provided an itemized bill that was exactly the amount expected. I would definitely hire Ray again and highly recommend him to anybody who asks. Michael F.

Bogden was the first one to respond to my bid, professional at first glance so I took a chance. You never know what you're going to get, I've learned not to have high hopes! Bogden showed up 5 minutes early on the day he said he was coming to evaluate my outside well pump (didn't work, rusted out, needed complete replacement.) I could immediately tell he knew his stuff--completely competent, he seemed like the jack of all trades, so I hired him. He showed up with his son on the day promised, on time, and did exactly what I wanted him to. I now have a working outdoor well which hadn't worked in years. While we were testing it, we noticed a leak in one of the pipes that wasn't related to the job--he said he would be back Monday to evaluate it, and I have no doubt that he will. I learned that he also does all home improvement, loves woodworking--thats great because I plan on hiring him to install crown molding and possibly a kitchen remodel! I truly lucked out--I believe I found a very skilled handyman! Woohoo!

I selected Steve Germann from an applicant pool of 4. I read many positive customer reviews & looked @ photographs of finished projects similar to mine. His price quote was about in the middle & after he came by to view my kitchen & explained in detail what he would be doing, I felt he was the right choice. He worked very efficiently, hardly taking a lunch break, & kept to his timeframe. He is a true professional as well as an honest one. I am very pleased with my refinished cabinets & look forward to working with him on future home improvement projects. I am happy to recommend him and his company.

I originally contacted Nelson for a bathroom remodel. It turned out so beautiful and was such a great experience, that Nelson remodeled my laundry room and built a living room built-in. He is very friendly, skilled punctual, honest, hard-working and a true pleasure to work with. I have received so many compliments from family and friends from the work Nelson did in my home. I will be referring anyone I know who is in need of home renovations or handyman services.

Our 2nd floor Condo sustained water damage from the Condo located above ours. Peyt removed the damaged drywall and replaced it with new drywall. He taped, sanded and painted our Laundry Room ceiling. We also had Peyt install a new light fixture in the Laundry Room which had shorted out due to the water. We had him replace our Dining Room light fixture also. Peyt has a full time job so, he is available after 5pm when most people arrive home from work. He works quietly and efficiently and knows what he is doing. I would recommend Peyt.

We hired Steve to help us update our home. This included a bathroom remodel, installing new floors, crown molding throughout the home, and adding a tray ceiling in the kitchen, just to name a few. He asked good questions and understood our needs as well as our budget. Steve made some great suggestions for our bathroom and kitchen, which we decided to go with. We value his opinion and are very happy with his work.

I feel very fortunate that I found George to correct the problem I found when I moved into my new home. There was a leak in a drain pipe inside the wall , which caused mold damage and extensive damage to the bathroom vanities and adjoining bedroom. George worked with me to recover almost all of the cost of the damage from my insurance company and made the repairs in a remarkable short time. He was very attentive to detail and took care of every part of the construction from mold removal to replacement of the vanities, plumbing, painting and tile replacement. He was a life saver.

John Reece was a pleasure to work with on home remodel including complete kitchen remodel, new floors, relocating front door and windows and updates to bathroom. John shared great insights for ideas at every stage of the project. His professionalism and communication were key, as we were working with him from out of state. As with any remodel, expected to find things along the way and he had great ideas - both quality and affordable options. His work is high quality and was ahead of schedule. We are thrilled with the results and highly recommend John Reece & Associates.

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.

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.

How do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.
