Bay Builders & Remodeling, Inc. We have been undergoing our main bathroom remodeling since last Friday, which is a week after since we met Bay Builders & Remodeling. So far, my wife and I feel so lucky to see Isaac Rozolyo(Project Manager) & Miguel (Crew lead) from Bay Builders & Remodeling. Our remodeling project began with the main bathroom, meaning we faced the water pipe issue after the demolition completed. This problem was kind of as expected in my mind but I will like to share our great experience I have had so far. (Will like to update with the work completion with the pics later on.) 1. Bathroom remodeling We got started this project because we were okay with the design after moved to this house, good time to do during COVID-19 and wanted to get our daughter, out of state, surprised in her coming home during Thanksgiving holiday. While we had a pretty bad experience with a contractor when we moved to this 2nd house but Isaac swept all out such our negative stereotype. Once I told him our work completion expected date, he proactively scheduled the logistics of trying his best to allocate the team schedule and a clear To-Do list for us in a day. We concluded he was the trustable PM to work with because the schedule was so visible and itemized clearly. Then Miguel came by a day before demolition to make sure beforehand. This is one of the good experiences we have with them. Talking to him, he explained briefly professionally. With this briefing, we had a pretty well secured feeling that it was a great decision for us to work with them. By moving forward to Demolition/Exhaust Fan installation/shower valve installation etc very flawlessly, everything looked so smooth to proceed remodeling work, but we faced the old water pipe, galvanized steel widely well-known issue... 2. Repiping Talking to Miguel, we found out we'd better repipe now during bathroom remodeling rather than we have to reopen the wall for repiping later like in a few/several years... Then called Isaac to discuss this additional request. We could talk to other contractors to have competitive estimation, but we decided to stick with Bay Builders & Remodeling because of the positive reasons above. Usually the general PM won't act that quickly but Isaac came by right away so we could discuss the issue to resolve transparently. As a result, the work scheduled to get started in 2 days, because the water supply issue isn't urgent at all. While we would like to update the work results after the completion, we have had a great impression so far such as clear scheduling, crew assignment, careful work and customer friendly/positive correspondence.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

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.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

How much will it cost to remodel my house?

The cost to remodel a home is highly variable — size and scope of the project, quality of materials, and the number of subcontractors required to complete the job all affect the total cost. The average national cost of a home renovation project is $13,500. The national average per-square-foot cost of a remodel ranges from $25 to $100. Nationally, kitchen and bathroom remodels are the most popular types of projects, in part because they typically have the highest return on investment when the home is sold. The national average cost of a major kitchen remodel ranges from $25,000 to $62,000, while the average bathroom remodel tends to cost $6,000 to $18,000. In addition to materials and labor costs, many remodeling project costs include permit fees, which, average $900 or more, depending on your location.

Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.
