I am a RE/MAX realtor and Johnny was one of 3 contractors I called to do an estimate for one of my VIP clients. He was EARLY to the appointment, was very knowledgeable, detailed and clear in his advice and estimate and gave me such a level of confidence that I will be calling him to do an estimate on the floors in my home. Well done!

He came in and done the electrical work that we needed done in a timely fashion. We ask him to do more work then he had quoted and done it. We had emergency general work to be done on Saturday and he did it with much of issue. He is reliable and does good work. The thing he should improve is the punctuation of the start in morning.

This guy is awesome! He gives you an estimate, does what he says he's going to do and does it to perfection! He is professional, friendly and an expert in his craft. His dad is pretty awesome too :) I hired him to fix a leak and install a new farmhouse sink and faucet in my circa 1920 home. I am going to hire him again to install a gas fireplace. Definitely the best experience I've had with a contractor in a long time!

I have used many contractors over the years. I can not say enough good things about Alvarez Electric. They were beyond professional, accommodating, and very good at what they did. I had an out of the ordinary electrical project, and their problem solving abilities and commitment toward addressing my needs was extraordinary. I highly recommend them.

We had a great experience using John. We hired him to make some repairs to areas leaking in our bathroom. He regrouted and sealed our shower and tub, and even replaced a damaged tile. He also completed some drywall repairs to our damaged kitchen ceiling which was leaking from the damaged areas in the bathroom. He was quick and very flexible with our schedules ,and even came back a couple of extra days to make sure the job was completed properly. He also did some extra work for us when asked at a reasonable price. We will definitely be calling him again for future handyman services needed around the house.

I just wanted to leave few words about the shopping experience we had with Nelson. Our project was a complete repainting and reflooring of our house plus few other minor improvements. While we did not award this project to Nelson and his team I want to say thank you to him for being very thorough with the project, answering all of our question and providing competitive quote. He was very professional and helpful with all of our requirements and he was out first choice out of 4 contractors to do this project. Thank you and good luck. Steve

Steve is one of the most trust-worthy and kind contractors I think you can find. I always felt that he was out to help my wife and I get the final product we were looking for with our kitchen paint job, with never an ounce of pressure to make decisions outside of our timeline or our budget. He was always extremely flexible and helpful in our entire process. He was also very sweet to my wife and I and put up with our picky, Type-A nature at the end. We kept asking for little things to be fixed or adjusted and he just kept coming back and doing it saying that he was only happy if we were happy with the final product. He even installed new cabinets that we bought and wanted to add to an empty space in the kitchen. He painted the entire kitchen and all existing cabinets as well as the new cabinets. There were no unpleasant surprises either - all good things. We trusted him to also be in our house when we weren't there and he always respected that. His pricing was great as well and came with a five-year warranty. I would recommend him to anyone.

I hired Jeff to install two fans that another contractor could not do. The first fan had so many wires attached that Jeff had to test them all and determine where they were going. Then he took the old box out and put in a new one. He ran into several problems but he did not give up! Then , moving to the second fan. this one had even more issues. My ceiling was damaged by Irma and the contractor that fixed my ceiling closed up the hole where the ceiling fan was. Jeff had to make a new opening and install a new box. Then, there was a part missing and Jeff went to his truck and fashioned the missing part out of what he had in his truck. Then he put it together and started the fan but it was wobbling, so, Jeff took it apart and started over. Jeff tested out every part of this fan until he had it up and working perfectly. He does not give up at all. He will find a way to make it work. I would highly recommend him to do the projects that you have to do. You will not be disappointed!!!

Hired Mecias Granite for granite counter top installation in my kitchen: Around 50 square feet of granite including a 9 foot bar with a 8 inch over hang and there was one L turn in the counter tops. It also included two small detailed lay down areas to custom match a triangle shaped pantry top. They did the entire kitchen with only one seam and laid out the stone so that the area with the most variation was in the most prominent spot. We told them we were in a hurry so they met us at the granite depot where we were able to walk through the wide selection and pick out what we wanted. We picked and paid the upfront half on Monday morning and they were installing our counters Tuesday afternoon. I was beyond impressed. They even left a small left over granite piece that we could use as a matching cutting board or as a lazy susan. I am planning to have them come back for my bathroom countertops when we are ready.

Sylvester just finished our popcorn removal and painting of our entire house and of remodeling of our bathroom counters and cabinets, I am so happy with the results, I felt compelled to write a review. A lot of times, people only write reviews for bad service or work that was poorly done, so I thought I'd take the time to recognize some excellent work. I was beyond impressed with Sylvester. After we had a lot of trouble with another contractor doing our kitchen counters and cabinets, we knew we had to find someone different for our bathrooms and other things we needed done. We had at least 4 different contractors come over to check out the job and give us quotes. Sylvester actually came in at the best price. On top of that, he really worked with us to get it within our budget. With a baby on the way and limited funds, his flexibility was MUCH appreciated. Not one of the other contractors was willing to work with us in that way. I would definitely hire Sylvester again, He was such a pleasure to work with. He's just a great guy all around and his work was way better than we could have hoped for. I'd say we got more than expected for the money we paid.

I worked with Yohan on my kitchen and three bathrooms. Yohan offered me a wonderful rate for my countertops, better than any other contractor or company. And every time I called him for a question or a change in our order. He was very happy 2 help and accommodate. I'm very thankful for his calmness and his professionalism. I would definitely recommend this contractor to all of my friends. Very professional on time and very good price. Quality needs everything to me and he is all about quality. Five star rating and more. If you want to call me for a review my phone number is 727 488 6366 Jay. My countertops look great and really impressed at his work.

Rafeek is amazing. He did a wonderful job. If you are looking for assembly line work - this is not the place. Rafeek is truly an artist/designer - he is meticulous in the work he does. He installed a lovely mosaic backsplash for me with a tile and compartment boarder - the cuts are perfectly matched. He even accompanied me to the store to ensure I had exactly what would be needed. He was very neat and incredibly knowledgeable. I love my kitchen. If you have the time to allow for an exemplary job that cannot be topped,my recommendation could not be higher for this gentleman. He will take his time to ensure the work is excellent and nothing less. You get the best of both worlds, a designer and a contractor.

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.

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.
