ISA Euro Construction

Verified review

I found ISA to be one of those rare businesses where you actually receive what you pay for. Their jobs were to tile two bath rooms and a family room, hang 10 interior doors, install extensive back splash and replace two bathroom vanities. One rare quality we found with ISA is their punctuality. A customer will find appointments kept and punctuality maintained ... a trait definitely not belonging to a good number of contractors today. We found Salvo and Kemmel (spelling) personal and friendly to be with during the arduous turmoil of home remodeling. Perhaps the best accolade a customer can provide to any business is "yes, I would hire them again"!

Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

I hired Be Electric to fix a leaky toilet in one od our rental houses that was supposed to have been repaired by a different contractor (part of a $20k project of various items needed around the house.) The contractor who did the work didn't even follow up with me when I notified them the toilet was still leaking. Be Electric came to the house within a few hours of my request, identified the problem, shopped for replacement parts, and repaired the toilet. I'm very satisfied with his professionalism and would gladly use him again in any of our properties.

There is something special about Andrei. He is nothing like the contractors I was used to working with. From the first time we met during his estimate, he immediately stood out as professional yet very approachable, honest and detail oriented. No contractor has ever come to an estimate wearing a suit, breaking down the big project to individual tasks on the spot, and pricing each task individually as we spoke. And his price was truly reasonable. Andrei and hist partner Andrei had a rather big task on their hands - gut-rehab my master and second bathroom, and tile my foyer. I am a picky person, and I wasn't sure if I could find somebody to go along with my anal nature and constantly changing mind. But Andrei listened to all my needs and worked with me like a friend throughout the whole project. I wanted a modern curb-less linear shower drain for my master bath. Some contractors that came before Andrei have never even heard of that. He instructed my plumber on where to relocate the drain, and the rest was all Andrei. I wanted a double vanity instead of the single vanity and Andrei again worked with my plumber on relocating the toilet so we have space for a double vanity. The Andreis drove the whole project from start to finish, unlike many contractors which will leave you the last 10% for you to figure out. We had a few bumps along the road, such as having to wait on some tiles for a week, but the Andreis were very accommodating to our situation and they worked around our schedule. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I hope you get the picture. No contractor is perfect, but Andrei comes really close to it. Best of luck to you my friend!

We were looking for a complete tear out and redo of our bathroom and building a walk-in closet in out master bedroom. Of the 4 contractors we reviewed they were the most organized and professional. The work donewas excellent and they always met their time line for completion of tasks. Their attention to the smallest detail was amazing and it shows in the quality of their work. The employees that worked at our house were extremely courteous and professional. We could not be happier with our experience and we will definitely use them for our basement buildout this summer.

My husband and I had been planning a tub-to-shower conversion for awhile but were not looking forward to dealing with the mess and issues that come with home improvement projects. We met with Dennis (the owner of Bath Consultants Inc.) and he was able to put together a design and estimate on the 1st visit. His estimate was much lower than other contractors and he was able to answer all our questions and concerns so we hire him. When it was time to install the shower his team was able to complete the project in 1 day and they did an excellent job. We strongly recommend using Bath Consultants Inc.. The workers were very careful, clean and hauled away all the old material. They made our bathroom project stress-free and beautiful. Attached is photo of our finished shower.

But Superior choice really was Superior!! Peter came out he was very personable but yet professional. He also gave me a fantastic deal on my windows which needed to be repaired and/ or replaced.

I hired HomeSource to paint the outside trim. There was also a lot of replacement of rotting boards. I found HomeSource's estimate to be the most thorough and most professional, and was happy with the job they did. The end result looked good and there were no major surprises. I found them to be courteous, prompt, and was happy that they left everything clean when they left. I would hire them again for any painting needs and any home needs in general.

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.
