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.

I am beyond grateful that I've had the opportunity to hire Absolute Maintenance. Gregg, along with his partner Vern, are two of the most skilled, talented, and experienced contractors I’ve ever met. For someone like myself who lacks the skill but demands the quality of true craftsmanship, I couldn’t be happier with the results. They are both patient and helpful when quoting a project, as well as throughout the process. They not only ensure the job is of the highest quality, but the two are more than happy to collaborate with you to suggest on how to make the results even better. I simply couldn’t ask for more. If it’s important to you that a contractor doesn’t just do the job, but rather takes pride in the project, I strongly recommend Absolute Maintenance. IMPORTANT - I also feel that it’s crucial to note that pricing is highly competitive, as you, like me, are probably looking for the best rate without sacrificing quality. Do yourself a favor and stop looking – and call Absolute Maintenance.

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!

Verified review

Stenes Contractors was extremely helpful in executing the strategy for a spectacular roof repair and completion. The just job was done with high quality and expeditiously. I would highly recommend them for this type of work. I especially liked the demeanor of the owner who handled any hiccups in our plans by saying, "Garret, if I complained, it wouldn't do me any good!" then forged ahead and completed the task at hand. Outstanding! Regards Garrett

CHRISTOPHER CONSTRUCTION

Steve T.
Verified review

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.

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.
