Wes did an excellent job for me. He did we everything. I needed a contractor and he said he could do it and he has. He repaired my yard and deck and painted and cleaned my gutters, fixed sprinklers. Then he painted the inside of my house and replaced anything I needed fixed. I would hire him again for all my needs. Excellent work..

    TLDR: I cannot say enough positive things about Clearwater Construction as a company or about every single member of the team assigned to my recent bathroom remodel. From the quality of work to customer relations these guys exceeded every expectation. The whole story: My grandfather, the most import person in my life, recently underwent extensive surgery for various cancers. After flying home to visit him following one such surgery, it became glaringly obvious that his small carpeted 1930’s bathroom with its decrepit 3x3 shower and ancient round toilet had become too difficult for him to maneuver. Having set aside a little money, I decided I would put out a request on a number of construction servicing sites to have his whole bathroom remodeled. I received several responses straight away, the most promising of which came from Thumbtack. Living a few states away I didn’t have the luxury of vetting the potential contractors in person, but of all the responses I received the one from Brent at Clearwater stood most prominent. His initial emails were prompt and throughout and he offered to be out at my grandpa’s house the next day to do a free estimate. After spending several hours measuring and go over the prospective remodel with my grandpa, Brent shot me an itemized quote taking large considerations for my modest budget and my grandfather’s health and safety needs. Upon reviewing the extensive quote and getting the “character check” thumbs up from my grandpa, I made the easy choice to go with Clearwater. Due to a fortune opening in their construction schedule Brent was able to slot my project in almost immediately. Unfortunately, shortly into the teardown phase it was revealed that the ancient plumbing, among other things, had all but rusted through causing significant structural damage to the main floor support beams and rotting out most of the subfloor. Once again I was provided with a well-itemized quote for the additional repairs and the remodel proceeded without a hitch. To help me track workflow, invoices and maintain general communication Jeff, one of the owners, got me set up with Buildertrend access for the remainder of the project. Over the course of the next several weeks, the Clearwater crew assigned to my project did an amazing job of providing me with photos and progress updates for every single phase of construction. Besides being able to see the level of quality that went into each step of the remodel via Buildertrend, I also received weekly phone updates from my grandpa talking about what outstanding workers and people Bryan, Andrew, and the rest of the crew were. Now that the project is all wrapped up I’m absolutely certain I couldn’t have selected a better company for the job. From start to finish every person at Clearwater seemed to take a personal vested interest in my project and my grandfather’s wellbeing. The fit and finish of the final product were well above what I expected for the price-point and the customer service along the way was second to none.

        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.
