AJ not only did everything we agreed to, he fixed mistakes made by a previous contractor which took extra time. Instead of charging more, AJ explained what the problem was, how the work had been done incorrectly and just remedied the problem. Would hire again in an instant.

Tom exceeded our expectations installing our landscape lighting. He was very responsive, friendly and offered expert advice on how to insure the job was not only completed timely but anticipated future issues based on his experience. I had several other vendors contact me for this job, but only Tom gave me the confidence he knew what he was doing and treated us very fairly. I really appreciated his by the hour billing rather than just trying to get as much as he could out of us. Welcome change from the numerous contractors we have dealt with in the past.

Daniel was very professional and easy to communicate with. He responded to our Thumbtack request for chain link fence replacement the same day, met with me for estimate, and he and brother Dustin had job completed 4 days later! They take pride in their work, and want to make sure you are satisfied with it before they leave. The fence looks great, and since they are so versatile in their skills, we plan to hire them again for other projects. We highly recommend Daniel, Dustin and David - the 3Ds!

Stamper Concrete was quick to respond with a quote and was willing to negotiate a price. They came out quickly to do the job and worked hard. Time will tell if the concrete is withstanding but at this time I certainly would recommend his services. As for other contractors: I was disappointed in the response from your referrals and Angies LIST. Some never did reach out. With all the contractors out there none of them want work or are willing to reach out to clients? THEY SHOULD REMEMBER I TOOK TIME TO PICK THEIR SERVICE OVER OTHERS TO SOLICIT THEIR BUSINESS. Guess they dont care.

Brad and his staff delivered as promised and we couldn't be more satisfied with their work. Our basement was completely and professionally remodeled and Brad worked with us every step of the way including changes that we wanted to make during the process. They also made it a point to clean up each day and respected our home which is a nice touch if you have had other contractors that didn't do this in the past. I would highly recommend Brad and Alhi to anyone for any construction needs. Easy and professional to work with and there are no surprises.

We enjoyed having John on our remodel. His level of professionalism and the quality of work was exactly what we were looking for in a contractor. He had the knowledge and experience to give us exactly what we wanted, staying within our budget and maintaining the timeline he gave for completion. Over all just a professional job!

We had a water leak in the kitchen that ended creating a project that included: removing an old range, cutting some cabinets to fit the new range, patching, painting and wall papering. After no luck with reliability with another contractor, we tried Thumbtack and found Jerry. What a blessing in disguise that the others were flakes- he has been terrific! If you read other reviews and think, "This guy is too good to be true," don't worry; he isn't! He is just a rare breed! Where to start....first, he was very fair and reasonable on the price. Apparently there is an industry standard pricing guide that set process high (hence the sticker shock with everyone else). If he feels that it is unreasonable, he works down from there. His rate was reasonable enough that we could add in changing the title on our backsplash. But this does NOT mean quality is sacrificed. He is more than experienced and it shows. He is extremely neat (never leaves a mess), and his work is careful. A true generalist, he has ended up helping us with other problems that ironically occurred while he was here. I asked him to remove the sink for me so that I could apply some stone finishing to our counters, and he saw that our wiring for our disposal and dishwasher was not up to code (and it wasn't!). He fixed that. Our basement had water in it after rain one night; he helped up trouble shoot where the leak was coming from (it was from a crazy odd place, but he helped our insurance adjuster to find the leak! Our adjuster liked him too, btw). He also fixed a support on our porch that was cracking. From drywall to roofs, he is a household renaissance man. He really went beyond the call of duty for us, and was never, ever "pushy". To top it off, he is very kind, friendly and honest. A couple of days he needed an extra set of hands and brought a couple of workers with him, who were also neat, skilled and polite. I could go on but you get the picture! ;-) My father was extremely handy this way and always did anything around the house with skill, care and integrity. I didn't know anyone else was cut from the same cloth until we met Jerry. If you are lucky enough to grab him, do so.

I just needed them to do a couple of jobs that were a bit beyond my capabilities, and these guys knocked it out of the park! I’m already planning some new projects based entirely on the fact that I feel like I’ve got a contractor guy, now. It’s nice to feel like you’ve got someone on your side that knows how to do it right.

This was my first time using Thumbtack for a job. Jeff was simply amazing. He came and inspected my roof, giving me a fair cost to do the job. He then spent almost 2 weeks advocating on my behalf with my insurance company to ensure I got everything I needed to do the job. My insurance company gave us both the run around, but he remained professional and patient (while I was losing my mind). After starting 5 days earlier than expected, he ran into some serious problems with my roof that wasn’t covered under the claim. He took the time every step of the way to explain to me the condition of my roof. He purchased just the right amount of materials and didn’t mark up the price for his profit. He showed up on time for the job, even working the holiday to get the job done. His crew was very hard working as well. My only problem was wishing I knew he was also skilled at other areas so that I could have hired him for all of my jobs. It’s hard to find honest, trustworthy, and competent contractors. Delta construction is all 3. I have them on speed dial for all my future needs.

I have worked with Brandon Glanton for the last 5-6 years on total home remodeling projects as well as miscellaneous needs around my home. He has done a fantastic job with everything I’ve asked him to do. From jobs as small as hanging pictures to large bathroom remodels, cabinet installations, painting, total kitchen gut and remodel including an amazing job on the Italian marble mosaic backsplash! He is very professional, pricing is very reasonable, his work quality is excellent and above all else extremely trustworthy! I would highly recommend Glanton Contractors to anyone.

Our Contractor is still working on our project. He started today and we're very happy with his progress. He's a hard worker and very skilled. Thrilled that we found him. We have lots of other projects with his name on them...if he accepts in the future. I'll add to my review once he's further along and add some photos.

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.
