This is my first-time hire contractor in Thumbtack. I hired Duane to fix my roof, and he did a fantastic job. The best thing about Duane is he is a very honest and a hard working contractor. Those are the characters that I do look for my contractor. I will continue to call First Class Construction for any of my future projects, and I would highly recommend him and his team to work for you.

    We have been clients of Broughman Builders, Inc. for seven years now. They initially built a two-story addition staying within budget and built ahead of schedule. Their insight helped us custom design our floor plan to achieve the living space that worked perfectly for us. Due to our favorable experience with Broughman, we then built a two-story garage for my husband's shop. Once again, we were very pleased with the outcome and the quality of construction. Broughman Builders is serious when they say "Our number one goal is to maintain our reputation by providing our clients with the highest level of satisfaction." We are currently in discussions, with Broughman Builders about small upgrades to our kitchen and other areas in our home which are in need of renovation. We highly recommend Broughman Builders for all of your construction needs, no matter how large or small the project.

    Tom coordinated a series of home improvement projects for me ranging from drywall to flooring to bath to roof repairs. At all times Tom proved professional, accommodating, and experienced in how to estimate and complete the project as needed. While unexpected illness pushed our original deadline back a bit farther than originally estimated, Tom worked with his contractors to ensure all work was completed, even as we added additional scope to the project. I highly recommend Tom Dowd Co for any home improvement projects you might have in the residential space. Knowledgeable, diligent, and fair: a great combination of qualities for any project!

    Having Sean Gleason work on my home was the kind of experience you hope for when you go in search of a contractor. Sean gave me an estimate based on my description of the work and he was spot on. He arrived as promised and we discussed the work needing to be done on my roof. Sean did a thorough inspection of the roof and took pictures so I could see what he was seeing. This was really helpful in explaining what needed to be done. He gave me options on the work as well as his professional opinion on which was best for me. I really appreciated his honesty and explanations of everything. The work Sean did was great and he again explained everything to me before leaving. The best part was he guaranteed his work. Sean is a very personable guy and it was enjoyable talking with him. I would highly recommend Sean and will call him again if I have any projects needing a professional.

    sean recently made us new lamp posts in a hurry, as they were quickly rotting away! He was fast, on budget, did amazing work and always showed up when he said he would (contrary to our experience with previous contractors). He was easy to communicate with and we've had a great experience with him. He kept us informed every step of the way. We are looking forward to him doing other projects for us including our master bathroom and closet. He's very knowledgable and just a great guy in general.

    Professional communication. Knowledgeable contractor. Quality work. I hired Gerald for various handyman projects for a rental property, including drywall repair, back deck repairs, flooring, bathroom repairs, and roofing. From the start Gerald proved professional, scoping the project as requested while offering advice on alternative options and cost savings measures. Most importantly, all work Gerald was top notch and reasonably priced. I have no hesitation recommending Gerald for any projects/work the average homeowner would require.

    Charles fixed a cabinet door (a corner door, a Lazy Susan) when one of the hinges came off. Ordered another hinge and put it back together. It opens & closes perfectly now, like new ! My wired doorbell went kaput and his buddy/ partner got a new one installed in minutes !!!! Works like a charm ! And Charles removed so beautifully the rust on my heating element covers that one of my dear kitties sprayed onto. Bothered me for so long looking at it and embarrassed when guests came over. That rust is all gone now after he scrubbed it away and covered it with a "primer"(?) perhaps (?), then came back to paint it with white Rust Oleum. Every room's heat covers were affected and there is absolutely NO SIGN that the rust was ever there. Another great thing is that Charles & his partner showed-up WHEN THEY SAID THEY WOULD !!!!! How about THAT ?!!!!! PLUS, his bill was extremely reasonable ! PLUS, he's a nice guy. PLUS, he's honest. He did all of the work on days when I was working...still have my tv and everything else !!!!

    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.
