I also work in the trades and have worked with Joe on a number of different rehab/remodel projects over the last few years. Joe is the most diverse and skilled contractor I've ever been around. His work is efficient and his attention to quality borders on obsessive. Joe is not only a great contractor, but also an excellent Christian minister and leader. His trustworthiness, honesty and professional demeanor are refreshing in an industry typically devoid of those attributes. If I needed help with any of my own projects, Joe is the first guy I would call. -Jacob C.

We bought an older home 2 years ago and have hired out many home improvement projects, but not until now have we been so happy with the results! These 2 are awesome! They have been very courteous, every step of the way. They quoted us a great price for some interior painting, replacing our entry ceiling and changing out some light fixtures. Not only were they very flexible, but they were able to see our vision and help us create exactly what we wanted for our ceiling! Some contractors believe that things can only be done ONE WAY and that has been an obstacle for us until we found C&B! We have already hired them for another job! They are so down to earth and do quality work. They did the work as if it was there own house and we really appreciate them!! Go Cubs!

Chris is great to work with. He listens well and has excellent taste and vision. He sweats the details and ensures that the end result pleases both himself and the customer. He built our home and, 5 years later, finished our 2200 sq. ft. basement. We've gotten many compliments over the years about Chris's work. The one constructive criticism I have is that Chris can tend to under-charge for what is very high-quality work. With all due respect to his need to compete when bidding for a job, Chris's experience, insight, and craftsmanship is very valuable and he should ensure that his bids, while competitive, provide both him and his sub-contractors with income. I highly recommend Chris as both a person and a contractor.

242 was used by us because of the consideration by Severn for his employees. This decision came about because snow was on our roof at that time the job was being quoted by selected contractors and one contractor was willing to broom the snow off and start his employees working immediately. When I discussed the same point with Severn, he said, "I would not work on a roof that had just been swept clean of snow and I will not ask my employees to do it either." I made a decision to use 242 to replace our roof at that point. The list of clients provided that already had our specific shingle installed was very helpful in making the final decision. It allowed me to see the quality of the product being used and the quality of the work performed for other clients of 242. The men doing the work were very professional. We have been happy with their work since the job was finished. Don & Kathy W Moline, IL

I hired Jeff to hang some drywall for me. He came and bid the job, was here when he said he would be and did an excellent job! I have used several area contractors for various houses that I own and would invite him into my home anytime!

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.

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 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.

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.
