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.

They re top of the line! And work on their feet. Love small business owners. Have referred them to family. And, as an added value which you don't get from the typical contractors, they educated me....Will definitely recommend them! Good people.

Tim, did a great job installing trim in my basement. He was responsive throughout the whole process. The day of installation we asked for a quote for some additional work in the basement. Not only did Tim give us a reasonable quote, but he went above and beyond by doing the work the same day. I've met and hired several contractors through Thumbtack. By far, Tim was the most professional and honest. I'd definitely hire him again for future projects.

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.

Very reasonably price, extremely respectable. Work was above expectations. They ran into some unforeseen issues with my framing in my basement but did not stop until the job was done correctly and right. Was updated daily on progress of job. All drywall and mud are seamless. My plumbing lines work great and have no signs of leaks. All 7 doors installed open and shut great. I will definitely recommend this contractor to friends and family

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!

I recently purchased a home and after being taken by an unscrupulous contractor,Divine Development came in and saved the day. I cannot say enough good things about this company. They go above and beyond to get your work done in a timely manner. And the work is done very well. I've worked with them on two home projects, flooring ,and just recently had them do my kitchen remodel. I priced out the big box stores, as well as other smaller companies ,and Divine Development hands down had the best prices. They listened to what I wanted and my vision for the space ,and my kitchen turned out beautiful. If you are need quality work at a great price give this company a call .You wont be disappointed.

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.

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.
