I am not someone who typically writes reviews, mainly because I'm not easily impressed. I'm not easily pleased. With that being said, Ian Williams completely exceeded my expectations and in my book a job well done doesn't go unrecognized. I am renovating my basement, and I needed 168 feet of base and shoe molding. Ian installed it PERFECTLY!! The price was fair, and the work done was absolutely excellent. I couldn't ask for more. Usually after a contractor leaves, I look over and pick apart there work, and I'll call them back to fix something, or I simply won't hire them again and won't refer them. With Ian Williams, I feel confident to refer him, and I will most definitely call him for future jobs. Ian also worked around my schedule, which made it easier for me. In my experience, a lot of contractors won't show up, or be late or have some other lame excuse. If Ian says he will show up at a specific time, he will be there, I assure you. Reliability and dependability seems to be rare these days. If you need some precision carpentry done, Ian Williams is the go to guy. If you want a contractor who is meticulous, picky and very particular about things, then Ian Williams is the only choice.

In August we had the Jokela group renovate a small bathroom in our house in Kalamazoo which was built in the 1950s. They removed the very old black-and-white checkered tile from the walls and then beautifully replastered them. The rest of the renovation (vanity, tub, surround, floor) went extremely well and my wife and I decided to ask for their help with another house we used to live in and still own. It is an old house in Lansing (built around 1920s). It needed a lot of work; Plaster, kitchen, roof, painting, carpet complete w floor plan changes in bath and kitchen, siding repair and more. It has been difficult in the past for me to find a full-service general contractor with the experience and the know how to solve problems in an older home like this. Many will simply not return my calls. Houses this old and older were often not built to accommodate modern developments in rooms like bathrooms-so redoing one in a house like this can be problematic. The Jokela group makes it look easy. More importantly, if and when unforeseen issues arise Dennis Jokela is quick to communicate and discuss options. Also, there were times when he noticed issues and made adjustments based on his experience and know-how that were right on track. I enthusiastically recommend Dennis and his crew for general contracting work. Especially if like myself if you have had trouble finding contractors who are knowledgeable about and willing to work on small, older homes.

The response time was fairly quick! The only thing I did not like was not having a response from the company coming out to do the work. No contact information about the contractor was provided and there was indication on how I would pay for my services.

Our job wasn't large, but it required some construction and engineering expertise. We needed to shore up a 17' long shelf on the front of our house upon which three large window boxes are set. Because it wasn't a major (big dollar) project, Daniel was the only Thumbtack contractor who was willing to take on the job. He came out to our house twice to inspect the window box shelf, identify the problem and the solution, and then came back out again to do the work. This involved removing the shelf, affixing a support board under the shelf, and reinstalling the support beams and the shelf itself. He also repainted the shelf, tightened up the window boxes, and repainted the boxes. He contacted me with a few questions along the way as questions arose. All of this was done promptly, professionally, and at a reasonable cost. We'd highly recommend Daniel for any home improvement project, especially one requiring some level of construction engineering expertise.

We recently had a fence installed on our property for our adopted pups by Multi Level Konstruction Kompany. My husband and I wanted to support a locally owned small business and Markus Plewa and his employees did not disappoint us, they were absolutely awesome to work with! We would definitely hire them again for future projects.

Hired to repair damage to roof that was causing some leaking and replace missing shingles. I'm so glad I hired him to do the job. He was professional and courteous, and the job did not take long. Speaking to him on the phone initially told me he was the person to bring in. Very satisfied!

We had 2 contractors before Martin and they both kept pushing our job out further and further. I reached out here, Martin got in contact with me same day, came out that night, and started the next morning. He did great work, VERY affordable, showed up every day, and accomplished our entire list of things we had requested within a week. I have already recommended him to family, and I would recommend him to you as well. We will be using him again for sure.

Hands-down Gemini LLC is the best general contracting firm in the business. Adam Brown listens to clients' needs, is trustworthy, and hardworking. The finished product always exceeds expectations.

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.

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.
