We have just had Ben and his team complete a bathroom remodel for us. In 26 years of hiring contractors to do various jobs for us, this is by far the best experience that we have ever had. We got the estimate in a timely manner, were fit into the schedule, and recontacted a few days before the start of the job. The job took a little longer than anticipated in large part due to our old house and a less than perfect job on the original bathroom install. Ben and his team took it all in stride and we were rewarded by a fantastic finished product. Ben was friendly, helpful, organized, knowledgeable, and extremely hard-working. His assistants, Brandon and tom were equally industrious and friendly. Overall, we were delighted with our interactions with Ben and we will be calling Fryer's for future projects. Thanks, Ben!

Chris was eager and excited to do the work. He worked hard and we are very pleased with our new renovations to our bathroom which included a new ceramic tile floor and a wall repair. He was quite planful and invested and showed up the days that he said he would in order to completed the project on time. He was kind and accommodating, always putting our needs first. I would recommend him again and again.

When we were getting our house ready to sell, Michael White re-did the drywall in our upstairs dormer and in our basement rec room. They were very different jobs -- repair in one and complete replacement in the other -- but in both cases, his experience let him diagnose the needs quickly, and then he worked hard and paid close attention to detail during construction. The results are excellent and have drawn compliments from prospective buyers, and they've given us peace of mind in a lasting improvement to the home.

    Brian Caldwell took over large renovations needed for my house in Decatur. There was a lot of work needed in a short amount of time. He did an amazing job. He took care of every aspect of the project that included siding, roof work, garage demolition, foundation work and much more. He also did a good job of "thinking-out-of-the-box" on ways to save me money. He also worked well with city inspectors, permits, my property manager, and my other workers. And he was very flexible and easy to work with regarding payments. All-in-all just a great job. Was nice knowing I had someone I could count on in a difficult renovation project within a short timeline.

      3-D construction helped completely renovate the old staircase in my 150 year old farmhouse! Bryan took down the old stairs, being careful to save certain pieces I wanted to keep as well as being very careful to maintain an old wall the stairs were connected to. It wasn't an easy job since everything about the house is slightly crooked but 3-D construction made a beautiful, solid staircase! He was easy to work with and would let me be as involved or uninvolved as I wanted. He stayed in great contact through phone calls and emails so I always knew what was going on even from long distance. I would recommend bryan and 3-D construction to anyone! Very easy going, nice company!

      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 you choose a commercial general contractor?

      A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

      Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

      Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

      A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.

      How much will it cost to remodel my house?

      The cost to remodel a home is highly variable — size and scope of the project, quality of materials, and the number of subcontractors required to complete the job all affect the total cost. The average national cost of a home renovation project is $13,500. The national average per-square-foot cost of a remodel ranges from $25 to $100. Nationally, kitchen and bathroom remodels are the most popular types of projects, in part because they typically have the highest return on investment when the home is sold. The national average cost of a major kitchen remodel ranges from $25,000 to $62,000, while the average bathroom remodel tends to cost $6,000 to $18,000. In addition to materials and labor costs, many remodeling project costs include permit fees, which, average $900 or more, depending on your location.
