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.

James was very helpful in explaining everything that was done for my roof repairs. They promptly showed up for a free estimate and the job was done within a few days.. I definitely recommend Weathertite Roofing and Remodeling to anyone considering them for their home improvement job.

ER Construction is by far the best company we have ever had do work on our home. We have had some horrible experiences in the past with contractors who didn't show up, finish work promised, were sloppy and rude. ER Construction has finished all the work in our 1850 colonial and it has surpassed our expectations. The painting, floor refinishing, ceiling repair, and floor installation has been incredible and we are having them paint the exterior as well. We are very happy and satisfied and are recommending them to everyone we know!

Dealing with Marco was a dream. We hired his team to deal with a terrible peeling lead paint problem on the exterior of our 1920s home. Marco was professional and knowledgeable from the moment he arrived to look at the job and was proactive in pointing out things that needed to be done. He gave us a very competitive price and the team worked quickly and efficiently to remove the old paint, fix rotted trim, replace gutters and repaint the whole house. Marco recommended powerwashing the deck and garage while we were at it and I'm so glad we did. The crew was professional and cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. No qualms about touching up anything that we pointed out. The house looks 50 years younger and after dealing with inside renovations over several years I can say its hard to find a contractor like Marco who shows up when they say they will and does what they promise. I wish I had more things to paint - I would hire this company again in a heartbeat.

Wayne designed and built us custom radiator covers in our 1880's home. We have 2 young children eager to grab scalding radiators. Wayne was sensitive to this and finished the project professionally, economically and rapidly. We then asked for changes to the design and Wayne rebuilt 2 of the covers. We get compliments on them endlessly and we could not be happier with our choice in Wayne or the end product.

Sean was courteous and prompt. He and his crew came out on a very cold day to clean out an unheated basement of construction debris and other contents as well as household items within the home that had accumulated over a 50 year period. They got the job done quickly and at a rate that was quite reasonable.

We hired Greg to demo existing and install a new kitchen floor when our existing contractor failed to meet a critical deadline that would have thrown off the rest of our project sequencing. Within 2 days of posting the ad on Thumbtack, Greg visited our home, provided a VERY reasonable quote, and agreed to begin work the following Monday, which is what we desperately needed! To say that Greg was professional and responsive would be a gross understatement. In fact, we never even spoke on the phone -- almost all communication was done via text and email (we were away when this all happened!). He was prompt, courteous, BEYOND EASY to work with, and all-in-all a total pro!! His team was respectful and trustworthy, and our floors look gorgeous. If I could give him 6 stars, I would!! :-)

Thiago did an amazing job completely remodeling our bathroom. He laid out new flooring, installed a new toilet, vanity and mirror then built our shower tile by tile... beautiful herringbone from floor to ceiling! He definitely went out of his way to fix things, such as mold and wood rot, at no extra cost to ensure we received a high quality bathroom that wouldn’t have issues down the line. He takes pride in his work and this shows in the quality of the finished product.

I highly recommend Dewitt painting. Eric did an exterior paint job on our large home and it came out excellent. It was obvious he was more concerned with the quality of the outcome more so than just getting the job over with which unfortunately is rare today with many contractors. His price was fair but his quality was high. I will definitely use him again. I highly recommend Dewitt painting!

Total kitchen remodel. Came out just as I hoped it would. Jason is very professional and courteous. I was surprised by how quickly he demoed and installed new cabinets. (3days). If not for the wait on the granite company, the remodel would have been completed in a week. My favorite part was the all inclusive price..demo, new cabinets, stainless appliances, sink, granite, backsplash, he does it all. Very affordable, and quick. Highly recommend Sousa Houses to Homes for any of your remodeling needs.

Brett McNamara was a true professional, meeting every need we had in a timely manner. We had a deadline to meet, and he finished several jobs on time and within budget, doing superb work. We are going to hire him to maintain our properties as the needs arise. Not only did he install gutters 3 stories high, he roofed the porch, installed vents, and completed several interior jobs to our satisfaction. He was always punctual and honest, a man you can trust to do the job properly.

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 do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.
