Eric installed a new kitchen faucet for us and repaired the faucet on our tub. He also gave us advice on renovating our bathroom and diagnosed a leak we had in our basement. He was professional, polite, and worked quickly and proficiently. We will definately hire Eric again.

Steve hung 4 interior doors, built us french doors for our closet, re-caulked our tub, and put a cat door into a cabinet. He was a very nice guy, explained each step of the project carefully when he encountered unexpected problems, and worked hard for the entire time he was at our home. The tub looked great after re-caulking. The TV was hung very professionally and he even offered to hide the cords in he wall (unfortunately we ran out of time to complete this). Uneven walls in our house caused problems hanging the doors--which led to the total project taking much more time than estimated and left the door projects not completely finished. Despite the problems, Steve stayed late to get the doors to a point where we could buy parts and finish the job ourselves. Traffic problems also led to slow starts on several days and we ending up having two initial visits before any work was started. A few small tasks included in his quote were not able to be finished after 4 visits. However the quality of the work he did finish was good.

Roberto performed EXCELLENT work installing a new shower unit to replace my old tub/shower. His attention to detail is unmatched and can adjust to any structural problem he may encounter. His ability to match my replacement wall tiles to the existing tiles was undetectable. Also, replacing my linoleum with a new tile floor was done with equal professionalism.

A+ for Julio. We were on a tight schedule to redo our bathroom shower/tub tiles, Julio started the job as soon as he gave the estimate! He quoted us lower than expected and worked all day to perfect the work he did, the results came out great, not to mention he helped us with another small job for no cost. Julio is pleasant,hard working, and honest. I would recommend him to anyone looking here on thumbtack!

Admir is a fantastic handyman.. He is on time, very neat and does not leave any mess. He also is very knowledgeable and has many skills. I hired him to replaced 5 electical outlets that needed to be updated and he repaired my small bathroom porcelain floor. Admir prices are reasonable. I would definately hire him again to repair, replace, or another project I may have in the near future.

Tony was great. He arrived right in time and was very professional. He completed an installation of a kitchen faucet, repair of a leaky drain pipe, and shimmed a wobbly toilet. Almost as importantly, he came on a Saturday when my wife and young kids were home and they were equally comfortable with him.

I have a beautiful new bathroom that I am going to love! The original (about 65 years) grey & black tile was removed from the floor and walls, the tub was removed. The vanity and medicine chest w/lights are history. In their place I have a walk-in tiled shower where the tub used to be. I have grab bars (that double as towel rods), and four small corner shelves for soap, shampoo, and my rubber ducky. ;) The rest of the room was retiled part way, painted the rest of the way. New lights were installed; switches and outlets were moved to better locations. I have a spacious vanity and a great new medicine chest which blends beautifully with the rest of the room. The attention to detail that Jason displayed was exceptional. His workmanship can't be beat. (cleaned up after himself, too.)

    I had a major problem in my bathroom. There was a major crack in my bathtub..I looked up a fiberglass repair man. Rick came immediately to look at and bid out the job..he fixed the tub that day preventing major water damage in my house. The job came out looking perfect . I was given a fair price and was very happy with the service provided. Highly recommended

    I take the time to do most (if not all) of the actual hands on work myself. I trust the small group of guys that sometimes work with me, but no one is quite the perfectionist I am.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.
