I booked Apex to build a new addition on our home and to be honest I've been hesitant to work with new contractors. Their team came in and were professional and attentive to my families needs from beginning to end of our improvements. I was thoroughly impressed with their masterful work and would recommend their services to any and everyone.

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.

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!

If we could give six stars we would! Karol showed up on time every day, his work was great, when he faced an unexpected problem he dealt with it in a professional manner. His workers were also very professional, polite and efficient. We have worked with many contractors over the past four years and Karol was far and away the best. We have recommended him to friends, that is the highest compliment.

I had my custom cabinets made by K Cabinets. Anthony and Sam are the nicest people ever! I worked with several contractors throughout my home rehab, and they are the ones that stand out most. They really care about their craft, and really go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. I'm thrilled with my new cabinets! The quality is outstanding. From start to finish, they helped me with my vision of what I wanted, and now I finally have my dream kitchen. Lastly, Sam loves making cabinets. He takes pride in his craft, and makes sure everything is perfect. I'm so happy I hired K Cabinets!

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. From the estimate to completion of the project Dan and Steve were amazing to work with on our bathroom remodel. All their pricing was upfront and fair, and they didn't try to change order anything without prior approval. They were always responsive to emails or texts, and always on time, if not early. It was a breath of fresh air to work with Dan and Steve after struggles with other contractors in the past. I would highly recommend S2 for any project large or small, knowing the quality of work and care S2 puts into their work. We had a situation with our original tile guy, and S2 had plan A, B, and even C to ensure the project stayed on track, and we were satisfied with the outcome. Again, beyond thrilled with how our bathroom came out, and would recommend S2 to anyone looking to have a beautiful quality remodel without the hassle.

Jim and his team did a fantastic job. After many failed attempts several contractors to repair a leaky roof, Jim and his team were able to immediately identify the source of the leak and repair the problem. Advantex is a company built on honesty, strong work ethic and superior craftsmanship! I would definitely recommend Jim and his team at Advantex for your project!

I have worked with John on about 5 different remodels. He is one of the few contractors who comes in at budget and on time. I know well enough that things can go wrong in construction and one of my favorite qualities about dealing with John and NCH Contractors is they don't try and sugar coat anything, so i know exactly what is going on with my and where we are at in the process. We look forward to working with them more in the future.

I hired Angela from Elegance by Design as my interior designer and it was a great decision. Angela is not only a designer but can be your general contractor or you can use your own contractor and hire her as a designer and she can also project manage your contractor so you aren’t stuck dealing with every detail. She’s very thorough and passionate about design. As a homeowner you’re emotionally tied to certain things or how you think things should be, however she take a holistic design approach and looks at the space you want to design and gives you ideas of what things can look like based on your style and what would appeal to others if you were to ever sell in the future. She’s detailed oriented and a perfectionist. She gave me an idea to cut a piece of drywall in the bathroom that added minimal cost but added much more return to the value of my bathroom having a fireplace which you usually don’t see in homes which I’ll get back if I sell this home. She also helps you pick up material and has saved me money and chosen the right material like lights and tile which I was going to pay a lot more for. Never using a designer I didn’t know what to expect and now having one I know that any remodeling I will do I will use a designer more specifically Angela from Elegance by Design.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

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 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.

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.
