I cannot begin to express how happy and satisfied my wife and I are with Ryan and his partner Mark (of course Steve too!). They are professional, knowledgeable, efficient and affordable. Every morning they arrived before 8:30 am and worked HARD until they left at 5 pm. These guys aren't like regular contractors, meaning they are respectful of your home and never make you feel uncomfortable while they are working. Ryan and Mark have accommodated additional requests on the fly without hesitation, and have gone above and beyond to assist with work that wasn't even in the scope of the contract. If you are in need of a reputable and trusting contractor then I would highly recommend you take the time to meet with Ryan and Mark. Ryan/Mark/Steve, thank you so much for making our home a "home"! Dan

Absolutely amazing experience! Mike and Jose were awesome. Came in and saved us from a horrible experience from our last contractor and were friendly, creative, extremely timely and efficient in their work. I could not be any happier with these folks! Everyone do yourself a favor and don't look elsewhere. Mike Donnelly and his crew is the only way to go!

We are new to the Sarasota area and did not have any reliable way to find good dependable contractors. I used Thumbtack to contact Kimball and Sons.Ryan Kimball and all of his crew were very professionall,punctual and did high quality work. he made sure that the subcontractors he called were also responsive to our needs. If you are looking for an excellent and trustworthy contractor...I would highly recommend Kimball and dons...

It was a pleasure working with Todd, Tyler and Oliver. We needed to have a kitchen tile backsplash installed in our personal home. After scheduling the job, there was some unexpected car trouble, and I thought we were going to be rescheduled. But after knowing what we had already been through (the job falling through twice by another contractor), Todd was able to rework their schedule, squeeze us in, and still stay on track. I was afraid our job might be rushed, but they took their time to ensure it was done well. I have high standards for the work done at our own home as well as at our other investment properties, and they did a great job. They were also easy to communicate with and punctual so we'll be hiring them again for other projects.

Robert and his associate worked to redo my entire master bathroom as well as installed a new outside door and frame and built me a new deck. His attention to detail and explanation of work needed along the way gave me a feeling of involvement all through the jobs. I would definitely hire him again - he did what he said he would do (plus more as necessary) and was finished when he said he would be ( a rarity among contractors!) A pleasure to work with and a professional who truly aims to please

We are part of a 6 unit condo complex. George Sanders Construction repaired and replaced the decking and rails on all 6 units. I also had a few small things done on my unit . Was one of the only contractors who actually responded when questioned. Any issues were handled immediately. Also, reasonable compared to some of the quotes we received. Very satisfied.

I simply cannot say enough good things about Rob Prine and his business. This is one contractor that still does it "Old School" and by that I mean, hard work, not leaving until the job is completely done, and the customer is completely happy. He is as savvy a contractor as there is out there, and you would be foolish to even consider hiring anyone else. Folks, you get what you pay for, and Rob is worth many times more than what you are paying him, because of his many decades of experience. Don't waste your time and precious money, hire the best first, R.E. Prine Construction and Consulting.

I highly recommend Kristin to anyone who is looking for a full home custom design plan as well as someone looking for a single room or a refreshed look. Her taste and style are both sophisticated and sensible. I was so impressed with how well and how quickly she captured my style, as well as how quickly she is able to make design decisions. She really has a great eye. I hired Kristin for my living and dining room as well as a custom kitchen island. The contractors she brought were professional, produced quality work and did so within my tight budget. I will absolutely be hiring her again for our master suite remodel. Kristin is super easy to work with, responsive in her communication and a tremendous value- hire her now before she gets her own TV Show.

I had Blaine remodel my condo kitchen last year and, then, totally rebuild my house that burned down this year. As the general contractor, he took care of getting permits, tearing down the old house, hiring and supervising sub-contractors and got everything done in a timely and professional manner. I have been very pleased with his work and highly recommend him as a building contractor to do any kind of construction work.

    Exceptional carpenter, plumber. tileman and general contractor. His work is superior to any competitors. Quality, professionalism, and punctuality is beyond reproach. Honesty is just one of his great assets. I gave him the keys to my home and he completed the project timely and i was just amazed at the quality of the finished job. I definitely would place him in the category of equal skills of a Master Carpenter. Mark has worked for me on several projects and also my friends.

      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.

      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.  

      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.

      For more on where to start when remodeling a bathroom check out The Complete Thumbtack Bathroom Remodel Guide.

      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.
