Harry has been wonderful to work with. I hired him to repair a few small holes in my wall. He was thorough and did a great job. His rates are fair and he communicates well about the project. I highly recommend hiring him.

John is very accommodation and made everything look good under a budget while meeting and exceeding my expectations! The job wasn't easy, he had to repair mistakes made by previous contractors. New sub floors and flooring, trim, cabinets, drywall and repairs, plumbing of the toilet and sinks and vanities. It's a very old apt and nothing is square or even but he made it look fresh and new!

I have dealt with many contractors in my lifetime , however I can honestly say it was a pleasure dealing with Dan. I hired Dan to replace a deck on my home prior to putting it in the market for sale. Dan not only did an excellent job on the deck, he helped me make economical solutions to various repairs and remodel that ultimately help sale my home. What was most impressive is that Dan dealt with the constant hassle from the building department in a patient and professional manner. Most importantly the craftsmanship of the deck was so impressive that the inspector said "Your Contractor did right by you and built a deck that will outlast any deck I have seen in the past 2 years." If I was not moving out of state I would hire Dan to do any project in my house because it is not often you come across a true Master Carpenter and that is what you will get when you hire Dan.

I had Dave Dohl of Homestead Contractors do a roof repair on my over 100 year old home. He came out to my home, gave me a quote on the work, and started the job the next day. He was efficient and extremely helpful. The quality of his work was excellent and he did a very good cleanup after the job was through. After the roof was done, he did some trim painting on the front of my house which improved the street view of my house a lot. I would highly recommend Dave Dohl to anyone in the Moodus/East Haddam or Middlesex county area. I would definitely use Homestead Contractors again.

Bob is an awesome contractor as well as a person. His work was maticulous, service was great and he was reasonable as well as dependable. He installed a door after framing out a doorway and built a closet from open space. I would highly recommend him to family and friends. In fact, those that have come over since the job was done have requested his contact info.

I knew from day one that I selected the right contractor when Alby himself as the owner was on the job the entire time working side by side with his crew. The workmanship was first class. Alby paused at the end of each phase of the project to review the work with me to make sure it was to my satisfaction before he proceeded to the next phase. The final price was very competitive to the other 6 quotes that I solicited from other contractors. I would highly recommend Alby's Masonry and plan to use them for future jobs.

This was my first experience working with Thumbtack and For U Builders. I have a small house, and in the past, many contractors have simply not returned my calls because the job was considered "too small to bother." For U Builders installed 2 new custom exterior doors on my home. From the very beginning, Brandon (scheduling) and John (owner) were very communicative -- we had to schedule around the door delivery, and they were able to fit in my project as soon as the last door arrived. Stephen (Carpenter) is amazing! He made it look so easy and was attentive to every detail -- my house was built in the 1930s, so adjustments were necessary to make everything fit. When the job was finished, there wasn't a trace of dust or debris anywhere! I am very, very happy with the results, and will definitely work with For U Builders in the future. The entire team are professional, friendly, efficient and a joy to work with! Thank you!

This was my first time hiring David for a project to install backsplash in my kitchen. To start out, David's communication throughout the entire project was excellent. He was on time each day and thoroughly cleaned up after himself after each day of work. I have been a homeowner for many years. Trying to find a contractor who communicates well, cleans up after themselves, shows up on time and completes project on time is rare in the industry. To top it off, David craftsmanship was excellent. He was detail oriented and would not closeout the project until he thought each detail was perfect; then confirming with me if the job was to my satisfaction. I would definitely recommend David for work. GREAT JOB DAVID!

After years of procrastinating, I finally decided to have my badly worn kitchen floor re tiled. Through Thumbtack.com, I was introduced to Mike Flagge and several other contractors. I had a choice to make and I am so glad that I hired Mike for the job. All of his work was extremely well done. His years of experience and craftsmanship were obvious. He was highly motivated, energetic and very cordial throughout his time here. My new kitchen floor is better than I anticipated.

I produced a hard remodeling job. most contractors shyed away from. Gilardi construction actually took extra time to go over everything more than once. He took what I wanted and made better than what I was envisioning. I would recommend this company to anyone. They are always on time and willing to talk and explain every aspect of what they are doing

I would gladly recommend Jon's work! Bel Air remodeled my kitchen and master bath, and the work is gorgeous. I couldn't be happier. Bel Air was also the most reasonably priced contractor I found after searching and interviewing several and taking many quotes. The most important piece to me is that Jon warrantees his work and replaced a faulty light switch for free when I called. That's peace of mind.

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.
