Enigma Electric did an amazing job of explaining what changes I needed to make, and I was impressed. Where some companies try to fit more work beyond the initial issue, Enigma fully addressed the faulty situations in my home and even told me how to make simple repairs that would easily have cost much more. I encourage you to use them and you will find a top rate standard of service.

Salvo was amazing with his work and completed his task in a timely manner and cleaned up after. I had the wrong parts for the toilet install, but they did not mind running to home depot to get the correct parts. The installation could be done on the same day due to my own fault, but they did not even bother for another ride few days later to complete the work. Friendly guy with a ton of experience. He will be doing another home improvement work for me. I am glad that I called this company and will not hesitate to use them again.

I'm very happy with the work Andrei provided. Within two weeks of visiting my home and quoting the fireplace re-tiling, the job is done. Price was fair and results are great. I would definitely recommend Andrei for whatever tiling job is needed. He and his partner are prompt, courteous, professional, and clean.

We can't say enough good things about Brian! We just list the request yesterday, Brian got the replacement done in 30 minutes today! Not only he is such a hands-on professional who provides excellent and quality work, but also he is a very personable guy. My 8-year old son likes him a lot and told me that he was a nice guy. Indeed he is. We will always look for him when it comes plumbing and electrical house improvements or repairing in our house. Thank you, Brian!

First, this was the only service that responded to my request for quote. And, I was warned even before I posted the request that I might find it hard to find a provider. Even though this business was far away from where I lived Rob came on the agreed date. And, while his work was disrupted by weather multiple times he made it a point to come back as soon as the weather improved and complete the work. I am satisfied with the quality of the work done

Ron Kwaak did excellent work: he had a professional estimate and contract, he remained fully in-budget and on-schedule, he communicated very, very well, and was patient with my multiple requests (as an engineer, I like to ask a lot of questions and understand how things work). Ron is expert-level with plumbing, electrical, drywall, carpentry, and likely many other trades and skills. I selected him for the work since he was multi-skilled, hands-on, and could do all the work himself. He also had a team of additional people he brought in when two-person heavy-lifting was needed, and his people were just as pleasant and skilled. While working with me, Ron completed a very complex bathroom installation (which included many small parts and the manufacturer’s elaborate instruction manual). This work required a lot of know-how, skill, and judgment, in order to move around structures, plumbing, electrical, and to install the new fixtures. Ron truly did a top-notch job. Ron also left my home just as clean as it was when he started, and took great care of all areas in my home. I look forward to working with Ron in the future, and certainly recommend him to my friends, family, and work colleagues. I am 100% satisfied and impressed with the quality of his work, and will use him for all my home improvement needs in the future. Ron was a complete pleasure to work with, thanks Ron!

Raul and his team were charged with painting the large main areas of our home along with some carpet stair repairs-and they didn't disappoint! Everyone was very friendly, professional, prompt and quick. The team communicated with us every step of the way to ensure that the project was completed to our liking. I would recommend Ram to anyone and we will certainly consider them for our next home renovation project!

We had a huge remodel done by this company...basement finish, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, all our floors (from carpet to hardwood) trim and also crown molding. I had a strict guideline that all had to be finished before Christmas. Everything was completed BEYOND my expectations! I really didnt think it was going to possible either, but was finished 3 days early too! Larry, the owner of the company was extremely knowledgeable, understanding and courteous with all our needs and concerns. The work team was friendly and professional as well. I have recommended this company to many people. A few have already used them and are extremely happy with the professionalism and results in their home as well. A+++ HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

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.
