I had a couple of odd jobs around the house and Eric was great at addressing all of my issues! He took some time to diagnose the problems and come up with some creative solutions on the spot before hitting Home Depot and coming back to finish the job. I had a particularly tricky stair board that had fallen off and Eric was more than up for the challenge, despite its awkward angle and the minimal space that he could work with. As a new home owner, Eric was incredibly patient and took the time to explain to me why the problem had occurred and taught me a few tips and tricks. Great service, nice guy - I would definitely recommend hiring him.

We had Jaragua repoint and repair a field stone retaining wall and the final result was excellent. Adelson was very quick to respond and very professional. His pricing was extremely competitive and the final result of the job was exactly as quoted. Even working around several rain storms he was able to complete the job on time. I would definitely use Jaragua Home Improvement again.

Edilson arrived on time and completed the job quickly and neatly. He tiled the floor in my bathroom and replaced a roof on my porch. Both jobs required a lot of work in preparation since my vanity needed to be removed and the old roof on the porch needed to be removed as well. Ed did a great job and was fast but precise. He also installed a new toilet for me even though it was not part of the plan and waited while I went to Home Depot to get it! I would recommend Ed any one I know who has a home improvement project to complete. Arlene T.

Eduardo and his team did an amazing job on our dormer addition/bathroom renovation. Its difficult renovating and building in an occupied home and he and his crew were nothing but gentlemanly, respectful and kind. They kept the house and work space as clean as possible and were very respectful of our private space. The project fell directly within the schedule allotted in our contract and true to his word, there were zero changes orders even as we adjusted elements along the way. Eduardo himself is a very easy person to work with. He is always available and will respond to any concern or need any time of the day or night. If you’ve ever done any sort of renovation, I don’t think there’s anything more highly to compliment than responsiveness and Eduardo scores a 10 in that category. The end result is the bathroom we dreamed off, inside and out. The tile work is amazing and we are equally impressed with the exterior finishing and detailed time spent matching the new to old on our 1890’s home. We would not hesitate to contact Boston Best Construction for future projects, knowing the time and attention we would receive. Other details of our renovation including pictures can be found at www.birdsofberwick.com Thank you, Eduardo!

As a real estate professional and homeowner I look for quality workmanship, dependability and a fair price when I need a contractor for my own home improvements or to recommend to my clients. Troy always met or exceeded my expectations, and I can trust his opinion and recommendations for myself and my clients. He had high professional and ethical standards which adds value in my book!

We hired Russell to build a new newel post for our stairwell and install a new railing and spindles. We had sawed off the old newel post during a home construction project a year ago and did not have a picture or materials from the prior post. Russell was able to create a beautiful newel post from scratch which looks better than anything we could have bought in store. He was also committed to ensuring that the style of the post, railing, and spindles matched with our house. At our request, Russell returned to adjust something according to our wishes and even made suggestions to make the whole thing look even better. Russell was professional, honest, and came in at a great price. We appreciated his patience and willingness to deliver a product that we loved. We enjoyed working with Russell and love our new stair railing and hope to use him for future house projects!

Marcio installed a Marmoleum floating tile floor in our kitchen. Although the project took a bit longer than expected, Marcio came back early in the morning the very next day to finish the job for no extra charge. The floor came out great. Marcio and his team were professional and responsive to our requests. I would recommend them to anyone seeking home improvement help.

Great job at a great price. I love the retaining wall and concrete walk Fernando and the team at Disere construction did at my home. I needed a retaining wall to keep water from running into my driveway, even in the dead of winter they came out and built more than just a functioning wall, they created art! We couldn't be happier!

I have been a customer of Ken at Rainstone since 2015. And this past month a new job had us moving out of state. Ken was able to give our home his 100% attention, our wood floors repaired & refinished, broken wood replaced and matched to perfection. Our decks, walls, floors... our whole house is move in ready, thanks to the quality of work he and his employees deliver.

Jon removed my old retaining wall and stairs and built me a new one in about a week. What I like most about Jon is that he built me exactly what I asked for and nothing less. He didn’t pressure me into purchasing higher quality materials or try to increase the scope of work for his benefit as all the other contractors had. He showed up and did the work without me ever being home and charged a reasonable fee. What I hate most about hiring a contractor is the idea of paying a large sum of money to a random guy who showed up to your house promising the world only to never hear from him again. That obviously was not the case with Jon. I honestly don’t think he asked for a dime until a large portion of the job was complete. If you want someone that will show up, do the work at a reasonable price, and always return your call, I recommend Jon.

Thanks to Thumbtack, I was contacted by Gilson, of GF Construction. Everything went smoothly, from the very first meeting to discuss our project, to every step in between. Gilson and his crew were always available and responsive to any questions we had and we truly valued his opinions. The sub-contractors Gilson brought along were more than professional - our city inspector was extremely impressed with even the initial work the electrician had done. I cannot wait for him to see the finished product. The plumbers were outstanding - both of these professions and Gilson brought a tired old kitchen up to code and up to date. Gilson was always there to oversee that things were done properly. And, if not to his specifications - they were re-done. He has a loyal, dedicated, trustworthy, professional and reliable team behind him. I would highly recommend GH Construction to anyone wishing to remodel their home - my kitchen is beautiful. Next: bathroom and laundry room, Gilson!

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.

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.

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
    • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.
