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!

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 hired McDonald Construction to tear out some old concrete and pour a new concrete walkway for our building. Mike was excellent to work with and was able to accommodate a tight timeline that we had to complete the work. Mike and his guys knocked out the project quickly and did an excellent job. The improvement made a big difference for our building. I would highly recommend Mike and his team and will definitely be contacting them down the road for other projects.

Hose and Steven came over to install the kitchen Faucet, sink and the garbage disposal. They did a very good job with it. There was an issue where the dishwasher drain was leaking and they came over next day morning to fix the problem. There were some instances where they had to run to Home depot to get some required plumbing parts.

Last year we sustained hail damage to our home. Our insurance agent recommended Joel to complete the work. HGR replaced our roof, siding, gutters, and patio door. Everyone who worked on our home was courteous and professional. The materials and craftsmanship were excellent. Joel did a wonderful job overseeing the work, answering all of our questions, and keeping us informed throughout the entire process. We are so thankful to Joel and HGR for making the repairs to our home go so smoothly. We have already recommended Joel to our family and friends.

Verified review

Our experience with Lauren Marshall Interiors was terrific. We worked with Lauren on the renovation (gut job) of a bathroom in our 100 year old home. Because the size of the bathroom is small, it was important to choose appropriate materials and fixtures that modernized the bathroom without compromising the integrity of an older home. Lauren was able to design the space and work within our budget to achieve those two objectives. She provided great visualizations and walked us through the project. Although she had a vision, she was receptive to my input. She delivered all design specifications on time and within budget. She did not rush me to make decisions and gave me lots of options for materials. Lauren communicated well and often to ensure the project was progressing as planned. Additionally, Lauren was punctual to all meetings both at our home and showrooms. Lauren is a wonderful designer with a terrific eye for detail. I highly recommend Lauren Marshall Interiors for any and all home projects, whether a gut kitchen or bathroom job, or giving a room a fresh new look.

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 much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
    • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.
