Mr. Langley re-tiled my bathroom floor. He did an excellent job! He was very knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and prompt. Fair with his price and dedicated to his craft, he returned to my home TWICE to make sure the job was done correctly, and that we were completely satisfied. I was particularly impressed by Mr. Langley's cleanliness after the job was completed (as this has NEVER been my experience with any other contractor of any kind). I believe he left my bathroom cleaner than it was when he came in! I could not be more pleased.

Mike was prompt, courteous and professional. He did an excellent job on my needed drywall repair and completed it in one day. His pricing was much better than other contractors that contacted me. I will look to have Mike do other handyman work in the future.

We are still in the beginning stages of this project, but Dave gave me a thorough assessment of the viability of my project and made several thoughtful suggestions to help me control cost and meet goals I've set. I deeply appreciate his collaborative approach to planning as well as his comfort with letting me be hands-on with the parts of the work--like demolition--that I can handle. I've worked with several contractors over the last decade, and I can't recall anyone who uses active listening more effectively, translating my ideas and concerns into solutions.

This company came to my house and gave me a price on tearing the drywall off my garage ceiling and hauling it away. I accepted their offer, which was much cheaper than anyone else would do it for. They came back when promised and did a excellent job and cleaned up the mess when they got done. I wish there were more contractors out there like this company. Thanks again for a job well done!!

I was looking for a interior painting contractor to paint our master bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. I was given names of painters from various friends and co-workers. I was amazed that no one either called me back or the ones that did, never showed up to give an estimate. I then went on thumbtack and found Pedro. Him and his wife Hilda arrived promptly at my house at the time scheduled. I received a written estimate the next day. I felt the estimate was fair, even though I did not get any other bids. Pedro started the job on the day we agreed upon. I asked him if it would be a problem to add painting a powder room and to do some tile work in the bath. He was able to add on the additional work. Pedro and Hilda have a high level of attention to detail. The tile work Pedro did in the master bath exceeded my expectations. They were very easy to work with, and were always concerned with my complete satisfaction. I would strongly recommend them.

Julio is the most responsive contractor I've ever worked with! He is quick to reply, shows up when he says he will, gave us a fair price, and did FANTASTIC work!! I hired him to replace two walls in my kitchen with Hardie Backer Board prior to cabinet and tile installation and to repair/patch holes in the drywall from renovations and moving electrical plugs and lighting. We painted last night and cannot begin to tell where the patching was done. The work is flawless. Julio is a super nice guy and made a stressful time during an extensive renovation much more pleasant! Looking forward to having him back in 6 weeks or so to install the wall tile as we wrap up the project.

We hired KR Home Builders to build a new room in our basement (framing, hanging drywall, finishing). Robert was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional - he gave us advice about where to put the closet/how to cover electrical boxes etc, and as always quick to respond to any questions we had. The work he and his colleague did was of excellent quality, and they were consistently punctual and hardworking - the job was completed before we knew it! I can highly recommend this business. It also didn’t hurt that they were by far the best value we found during our relatively long search for a contractor!

The subcontractor, The Comfort Group was great, very professional, excellent job. I would love to have The Comfort Group work on other home improvement projects. I have a problem with the length of time I had to wait for the installation. If it was not for the wait the rating would have been five (5) stars. The Comfort Group almost made the waiting time worth it, almost.

We hired CertaPro painters last year to paint the exterior of our home. They provided us an accurate estimate and performed an excellent job. My wife and I were very happy with the professionalism and quality of the paint and painters. Thank you so much.

The roof shingle were replaced due to hail damage. Harris Construction (Brian) was very easy to work with and he was open and upfront on what needed to be done. He even gave suggestions on how to improve attic ventilation in conjunction with the new roof, which we had a problem with on very hot days. The job was sub-contracted to another contractor which is not unheard of but i was not aware of in the beginning. The sub-contracted roofing company did a good job other than one flashing section over the front door. Brian quickly corrected the problem. I would use Harris Construction for other projects.

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.
