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.

We would DEFINITELY use PFC again! Willis Preston was excellent at communicating....responsive and responsible. His guidance and professional advice was great throughout the whole process. He was patient and thorough with me with all my questions for months leading up to the project start date. Of all of the contractors of used throughout the remodeling of our home, he was the best of them. The scope was always clear, the workmanship was top notch...the people that worked on the project were great and trustworthy...and Willis was great at talking through any issues that came up (issues with the home, not issues with him or his work). I cannot stress how great it was to have them install hardwood flooring throughout my first floor. I manage tech/business related projects for a living. His skill and professionalism, fit and finish was top notch!

Excellent work. Showed up when promised, helped to haul the materials needed to finish the job, and was very thoughtful in developing a solution to the problem we had.

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!

I tell everyone: if you want to update your house, hire a pro! I would not have my updated and beautiful house had it not been for Christa's vision and plan. She listened to our ideas and walked us through decision making and selections while helping us bring our unique ideas to life. Christa partners with her husband's contracting company which was great since that's one less contractor I have to find. I cannot recommend Christa and CSP enough!!

James and his partner were so very kind and friendly. I would highly recommend this company. They gave me a more than fair price to get my business. They did a fantastic job quickly and they not only did the work, but gave me professional advice. They did above and beyond what I initially asked them to do and added a very fair price on to it for the extra work. They laid fertilizer & mulch, weeded, mowed and did general cleaning up. My yard looks great now that they've done their magic.

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.

They really did everything right! Estimate came quickly AND they finished the project on budget (how often does that happen)? Brandon was very responsive with questions when I was buying materials, even if I asked on weekends. They arrived for the job on time, were SUPER clean throughout (I kept hearing the shop vac go so they could minimize dust), left us high quality work and talked us through options (like grout width for tiling on floor), and finished the project on time too. They were flexible with scheduling since the project was to redo a laundry room and we were selling the washer and dryer, which wasn't set yet. I'm extremely happy with our experience and would definitely ask them to help us again in the future, so I'd highly recommend Glanton Contractors.

It can be difficult to find a reliable, skilled, knowledgeable contractor who is also customer service based and will create time in his or her schedule to follow-through with ensuring the work is done well and within reason in terms of cost. The work always speaks for itself. Establish contact with Jeff Matthews of DMI Properties if you are in need of a contractor for projects big or small.

If you're tired of searching for an all around contractor look no further: Chilton's Prestige Remodeling is your answer. No job is too big or too small and the owner, Bob is very talented and commits 100% to any job he takes on. He's pleasant to do business with and trustworthy in every aspect. Since being referred to his company a few years ago, he has done many jobs around our house and several of our friend's homes and their rental properties. Always exceeds your expectations. Our first job was having our masterbath/shower remodeled. It is beautiful and Bob has the skill & knowledge to be as detailed oriented as you desire. Another job was fixing our ceiling & crown molding in our two-story foyer which had water damage and now matches perfectly. Troubleshooted and solved our Grohe kitchen faucet that had limited hot water pressure since moving in 10+ years ago and was told by many plumbers/repairmen that problem couldn't be resolved other than to replace with new spigot. Replaced our outdoor lamppost and mounted fixtures amongst many other indoor & outdoor jobs.

Hired to tear out old floor, fix floor, install a moisture barrier, lay tile floor, paint, and do some minor remodel/repairs, etc. He was very nice, polite, kind, and professional. I set up an appointment through email and I met him in person, there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that by the time he left my home that everything was going to be completed correctly. Not only did he do everything that I wanted done; He was very knowledgeable, and worked hard at every detail and was more than happy to answer any questions that I had. He offered many different solutions to ensure that only quality work would be done. The work he had done was met and was way beyond my expectations. Would recommend and rehire for future jobs.

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.
