The general contractor had left us in a bind since the cleaning was not included in the price of the renovation work. They could not find someone that could handle construction dust and debris so I had my doughter research listed companies and through a google search we came across ebrr property. The day of the work Luis let us know that the cleaners were on their way. Cleaning: every in of the house and was 110% satisfied as our standard maid would have never been able to handle the job. Hopefully, Downtown XXXX XXXX (the general contractor) will hire ebrr for more jobs in the future since they exceeded their and our expectations

Great craftsmanship, professional, and easy to communicate with. Worked with my schedule to complete the project according to my timeline. My bed was put together perfectly, and headboard mounted into masonry. I find a common theme amongst contractors in that they don't clean up after themselves, leaving saw dust and waste materials for the home owner to clean. While I did have to do some fine tuning in the cleaning department, Trenton did at least attempt to clean up the area by picking up and disposing of the larger waste pieces. I would definitely hire him again.

"After some miscommunication on the initially agreed upon time, Tim called me this following morning to apologize and see if they could come by to move the furniture that day. I wasn't available to answer the call and tried to call him back. While the phone was ringing, my doorbell rang. It was Tim and a helper asking if he could move the furniture. I very much appreciated his initiative and willingness to apologize. (It's incredible how many contractors we've had who lack both.) They moved our items upstairs with minimal damage. It wasn't an easy task to get our couch up the stairs and around the turn, but he took great care and breaks when needed, which is exactly what we wanted."

I can’t say enough about what a great professional and thorough job Kelvin did! He came out within hours of my request, bought all the material he would need, and fixed the piping under my bathroom sink. It didn’t take long at all and he is the most reasonably priced contractor thus far! Thank you and I will be using you again for several projects!

I was delighted by my experience working with Ordonez. He installed a marble backsplash in my kitchen. His price was competitive but it was his conscientiousness, thoroughness, and commitment to excellence that impressed me the most. I’ve worked with many home contractors, and this is one of the best. Fully recommend!

I had a nightmarish safety-related electrical problem involving of all places, my childrens' bedrooms! I brought in 6 different electricians for quotes/opinions. Everyone else I talked to said it was impossible to fix without tearing down the plaster walls and suggested I either get really good smoke detectors or do something like power the rooms with extension cords!!! But Giovanni (Rolando G.) said "No problem, I can fix it. I do this work all the time." And he DID fix it. Correctly. On time. Without tearing down the walls! It was nothing short of a miracle. He saved the day! That is experience and work ethic for you, folks! Price was fair too. Now many of the other contractors I had working on the house have asked me for his contact information, and my real estate agent is referring her clients to him as well. And I am sleeping well at night. Will absolutely continue to use him in the future, and have already used him for other projects. He gets my highest recommendation for skill, professionalism, work ethic, ease of communication, value, punctuality, and the kind of rare expertise that comes from intelligence, know-how, and years of experience. Thank you, thank you!!!

Erick and his team did a kitchen remodeling project for me in Fairfax. They installed recessed lighting, removed the bulkhead moved the air vent that was in the bulkhead, installed the cabinets and backsplash, installed new appliance and a new sink, faucet and installed new breakers for the new appliances. They did everything in a professional, neat and timely manner. He even came on a Sunday to accommodate my tenants schedule. My tenants told me that they have never seen any contractors who left the house clean and tidy at the end of each day. He was a true pleasure to work with and made the project easy even though I live 800 miles away. I highly recommend Ordonez cleaning service. He has earned my trust and I told him that I will count on him to take care of my house. In Virgina.

Jorge did an awesome job on my staining and painting project. Bonus points for working around the other contractors who were putting in pavers and fixing concrete work on site. I feel I got an excellent price. And finally I was impressed that he kept me updated. He did everything right. Great job. Will call again.

Hi, Richard and his Ramon complete this kitchen renovation for me 4 months ago. I've a little tardy in giving them my review but its better late then never. They did a wonderful job on my home renovation, though we had some communication issues in the beginning but you have to understand how these contractors work. It felt like forever but not having a kitchen can feel like forever. The complete my whole kitchen, mud room, first floor powder room, and upstairs bathroom within a month. My and my fiance area bit hands on, so we did choose and pick all the materials that you see in the picture and we bought most of the materials and had it delivered to the house. They are down to earth guys, and sometimes you have to hold them by the neck but they still did a wonderful job. Everyone loves the kitchen now and its going to give my house sell appeal when its that time to upgrade.

Tim and his crew did a great job on our basement finishing! Tim was very knowledgeable throughout the process and was very accommodating to with our busy schedules. He and his crew were very trustworthy as most of the time they worked in the house while we were away. Special thanks to Neil and the other gentleman on the team. They were always very friendly and responsive when I needed anything or had a question. My only negative, hence 4 stars, would be that I would have liked to only have had Tim as the sole POC versus us having to deal one on one with the other contractors on the project as it made for a lot of calls and additional tasks to manage. This was our first project so we were not really sure how everything worked. All in all, they did a great job and made our space beautiful! We would definitely use again for any project!

I hired Melvin and his workers to demolish an old deck and hot tub. He was on time and finished the job when he said he would. They left the area with nothing but dirt and hauled away everything. He did exactly what he said he was, returned my messages and was very professional the entire time. I would definitely hire him again.

Arnold stepped in when my original contractor fell ill right after he demo'd the kitchen. Arnold did a fantastic job with a complete kitchen rehab and installing a new bathroom. It was a big project, which included installing heated floors, new hardwood floors, a new staircase, detailed cabinet assembly, recessed lighting, painting, cabinet lighting, installing new electric and much more. I cannot believe how lucky I was to hook up with Arnold. I 200% recommend him. He was extremely reliable, and he always answered my calls, texts and emails. He is a good person, and I now consider him a friend. Thank you Arnold and your team for a job well done. I love my kitchen and bathroom.

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.
