Ben Goheen, the "Neighborhood Plumber," is one of those professionals whose card you keep at the top of the stack and never lose. He was recommended by a good electrician we've used, and has done excellent work for us at our home in Lithonia, Georgia. Most recently, he came over right away when we saw what looked like leaking from a main floor bathroom into the lower level drop ceiling. He was able to diagnose the problem quickly, something no one in the house (including the previous owner) had done before, and helped us take care of it very economically. He explained everything he did as well. As if that wasn't enough, my wife discovered leaking in the lower level kitchen, and it got worse. She called Ben late in the evening, and he came by early the next morning. The problem was a sewage pump clog, and once again Ben worked his magic and fixed it. He also took a trip to Home Depot to get a fan and humidifier for us (we'd have been pretty useless on the trip) and set them up. I think this is 4 or 5 jobs that Ben's taken care of now, and all of them extremely well. Add in a friendly and professional approach, and you have a star.

He is also very skilled and thorough at his job. He stayed on schedule to complete my home repairs. I would most definitely hire him again.

Rafael and his team did an outstanding interior painting job at my condo. I needed to repaint my one bedroom condo walls and ceiling. This was my first time using Thumbtack to hire contractors so I was little skeptical in the beginning. I met up with several contractors for an estimate but the quote and schedule did not work. Rafael was willing to work with quick turnaround schedule for a reasonable price. Throughout the whole process, he was honest and very responsive. My condo has a strict HOA restrictions for contractors but Rafael still came through and brought in his team to paint my place! His team arrived at at a scheduled time and Rafael updated me to let me know second coat was needed. We've already discussed second coat price so it was not a surprise. I went home after work and my place looked amazing! Even the corners of the wall looked neatly painted and the color was just as I expected. They also unmounted my TV, took down the curtains and unscrew nails before they painted the walls at no additional cost. Of course, the TV was mounted back on the wall just like before after the paint. Overall, I'm satisfied with the paint job and most importantly the reliability. Buying a house and moving can be very stressful but Rafael made the painting portion of my place so easy. No miscommunication, no surprise fees and prompt response throughout the whole process!!! THANK YOU! I'm referring him to my friends and will come back for another business in the future. See you again!

After being totally screwed by another contractor, we turned to Tom to fix the problems the other contractor left behind. Tom was reliable, punctual, and respectful. He was extremely knowledgeable about kitchen backsplashes and was all about QUALITY work. We would absolutely hire Tom Tile for all our home improvement needs and will be recommending him to friends.

Hired JD Granite through Thumbtack to give us kitchen countertops and backsplash. Jeferson came out on a Wednesday at 4 PM, right when he said he would be there and took measurements and gave a quote. He brought a sample that we liked and we chose it and he made a template right then and there! He said he would be back Saturday and would start in the morning and that it might take 2 days. He was finished before 4 PM on Saturday! Not only did he finish ahead of schedule, and a week faster than anyone else that had quoted us, our kitchen looks AMAZING! This company does quality work at an affordable price. He has increased the value of our home and I am still in awe at how great our kitchen looks 3 days later. I cannot recommend Jeferson highly enough. He is courteous and does great work. He shows up when he says he will show up and gives a fair price. I will definitely be using this company again and will recommend them to everyone I know.

We had a great experience with Luis and Brian with Contreras Home Renovation. They came in and fixed our ceilings, which had to be redone due to another vendor's negligence. They covered our floors and belongings, cleaned up after themselves and were responsive to our needs. We will hire Contreras Home Renovation again for other projects. It's a family company that takes care of its customers.

I recently hired Luis from Sierra Handyman to finish a project in my basement. We were putting in a kitchen for our in-laws and realized quickly that it was a task better given over to the professionals. Luis was prompt and gave us a great estimate for the work required. We had him run new plumbing for the sink, install cabinets and countertops, as well as lay flooring. He completed some drywall work and came up with a great solution in getting rid of the outdated drop tile ceiling and put in a tray ceiling for us. You can hardly tell it's a room in the basement! He was respectful of our time frame and did a great job! Exactly what we envisioned. Will work with him again on additional projects for our home.

My wife and I recently used Creative Creations to install hardwood flooring in our formal dining room and main floor hallway. The craftsmanship and attention to detail was excellent. The arrival time to our home was prompt and the work was completed in the time specified in our work order. The workmen were courteous and efficient. Their rates are very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing home improvements. CH Atlanta Georgia

I hired Andy to do some electrical work with hanging a light fixture in my closet where I was not certain the breaker for that closest ceiling had been successfully disconnected from my main circuit breaker for the house. He was very personable and prefessional at diagnosing the issue, and was quite skillful in getting everything installed and tested within only a matter of minutes. While he was at my home he went beyond the service I had hired him for, and helped me with figuring out a plumbing issue I was having as well. I plan to hire him again as soon as I'm ready to upgrade my bathroom faucets! I highly recommend his services!

There was a misunderstanding about our job needs. Alfredo arrived and began to work. We determined that the work he began was not what was expected. He declined the expected job and graciously did not charge us for any of the time he was at our home.

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.
