Mr. Glaze was extremely professional in his approach to the job. He went above and beyond to solve the roofing problem. I have recommended him to several associates, because I understand how difficult it is to obtain reliable and competent contractors.

I've worked with other painters in the past, but from now on, I will be working with Jones Painting. I hired this company to do a very small job that most contractors would not touch. They did such a great job, I have now hired them for another job, and have plans to complete my entire home with them. Professional, clean, quality and reasonable. Highly recommend their services!!

Hired Young's Painting and Remodeling to paint my garage walls and ceiling and install some can lighting. Art responded promptly with a very competitive estimate, showed up soon to discuss what I was trying to do and quickly came up with a quote that was very close to his original estimate. He and his crew were very polite and did great work. What really impressed me though was the follow-up. Due to time constraints and not having enough light in the day, a couple small places dried a slightly different color than the rest of my ceiling. Art followed up with me several times until we found a day that worked for both of us to fix the problem. Great contractor, would hire again.

I hired Brandon to demolish some existing kitchen cabinets and fit the new cabinets. He did an excellent job. I tip my hat to Tim Taylor who built the cabinets for me. Only one small issue but that was because the floor was un-even due to a previous foundation issue. Brandon got all of the cabinets in and level. I asked him to do some additional work for me. (Building my Counter tops for the cabinets and one for the kitchen island) Should be installed tomorrow. His prices are exceptionally reasonable and his attitude was phenomenal I would HIGHLY recommend Brandon for any general contract work. J Ray Jackson

We found J WEST contractors on thumbtack. He was quick with contacting us and setting up an appointment to provide us with a bid. We had soft spots in the floor checked and new linoleum put down as well as some smaller other projects. We had to set back the project some and we were able to reschedule quickly. Communication was easy throughout with thumbtack and through phone calls. Thanks!

Picking a contractor from a website can be a little scary. Especially with past experience I received. However this company was very professional throughout the entire process. They came out to my house on the date scheduled and arrive promptly. They took a look at what I needed and followed up the next day with a quote that was favorable to my budget as well as a lower bid than I'd received from other quotes. They also followed up after the work was done to assure that I was pleased and to find out if there were any questions or concerns. I will be using this company again and would highly recommend them to anyone. I had crown molding installed in my living room dining room and Hall and I also had interior doors hung for 9 doors. I'd also like to add glad had someone else install crown molding that was put up upside down and this company was able to remove that room material and replace it with better quality of work. No one asked me to write this review but I was so pleased with the quality and craftsmanship I knew I had to post something. (Note: I need to have the doors and crown molding painted- probably will hire them to paint)

        Mark did a great job. He's honest and easy to work with on a project. He will ALWAYS answer your texts, usually within an hour or two, but if he has to find out details regarding your questions, by the next day you'll get an answer. He is understanding and listens to your ideas and concerns. He did a "magazine quality" renovation of my bathroom. Took two old restrooms in a former restaurant and turned them into one breathtakingly beautiful restroom that looks like you are stepping into a Roman Spa..Your dream is his reality. He has the best and the most understanding crew any contractor would dream of having. Would I use him again? You better believe I would!!!!

          Philip completely remolded both bathrooms in the house. This included tiles for the floor and showers and plumbing. He also set my cabinets & hood vent in the kitchen. He also installed 10 Can lights in 4 rooms. Very talented and pays attention to detail. My next door neighbor also hired Philip to remodel their bathrooms. Another lady 7 doors down had Philip remodel her entire house after a contractor messed her over by taking her money and disappearing. We also had friends in our subdivision hire Philip to remodel their bathrooms. All told Philip worked on 4 homes in a 400 hundred yard radius and all parties were very pleased. I would recommend Philip to anyone who wants an excellent job at a very fair price.There are a lot of contractors out there who will rip you off or do a pathetic job. You can count on Philip!

            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.
