Rocky did a top notch job both completing the work and making making sure that I was completely satisfied with the results. He really went above and beyond and was a pleasure to work with! For someone who has been burned by contractors in the past and left with a bad taste in my mouth Rocky was certainly a breath of fresh air! I would highly recommend Plumbing Works LLC to anyone!

Tom is the best. OI have hired him in the past to redo and extend an old deck which turned out fantastic! Now he is in the process of finishing my basement and I am thrilled with the framing work he did in the 1250 sq foot space. I will definitely continue to hire Tom as not only are his costs reasonable, he always call me back and shows up on time. When i have tried to hire out other handyman or contractors its been the opposite. A lot of no shows or half done work that I they never call me back and go dark.

We needed an outlet over our fireplace and a fireplace insert installed and wired. I have had three different companies out and they all said it could not be done bc we had no attic or basement to run the wires. Alex not only looked at it but had two choices for us. We were so excited and happy to have someone who thinks outside the box and is so knowledgable. We just bought this house and it needs a lot of work. We are taking one project at a time and we have more projects coming up in the new year we would like to tackle he is the first person I will call and refer to the subdivision page on Facebook bc there are always neighbors looking for good contractors well versed in different areas like Alex is. His prices are affordable for our middle class family with two small kids and only one income. Please do not hesitate and call him you won't be disappointed once I get my fireplace all finished I'll post pics bc he made my Pinterest idea come to life ;) Jenna Bayes

Cindy is the most pleasant person to work with, especially being a new home buyer. She was even able to answer questions that were sent to her by mistake :)! Chris is very friendly and professional. He did a very thorough job inside and out and answered every question and even offered professional advice to save money! If I need another inspector or contractor they are the people I would call!!

We contacted Harry for a quote for a corner built-in entertainment center. Harry came to the appointment on time (we have worked with a fair amount of contractors and a lot of times they do not show up for scheduled appointments). He took measurements and within a day we had a quote for the built-in. He was easy to reach via email and was always quick to respond to any questions we had. His price was very reasonable, compared to other quotes we have gotten. Once we hired him, Harry provided us with detailed design drawing. We made a few minor changes along the way and Harry was always happy to update the design and make sure we got what we wanted. The final product looked just like the drawing. My ideas came to life, just as I had envisioned it. The quality, style and craftsmanship of the unit were amazing. I almost did not recognize our living room; it looked like a picture out of a magazine. It has really added something extra to the room. I love my new built-in entertainment center. The unit was built off site. The on-site installation took less than a day. Harry was very professional, patient, polite and paid attention to every detail.

I can not say enough good things about Michael! He came out on a very short notice due to another contractor going MIA half way through, started the next day and finished the following. All over a holiday weekend! He saves our butts, and did a great job. What you get when you hire him is an honest, kind, and hardworking guy. I have already recommended him to friends and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

We hired AD Remodelling to remodel our kitchen countertops and build some new cabinetry. Al, our contractor, was extremely professional, punctual and efficient. His estimate was very reasonable and he communicated very well about what he would be doing and about timeframes, etc. He was working on our kitchen within three weeks of the estimate and finished on time. He worked quickly and the finished product looked great. He also followed up to make sure everything was working out. I would use AD Remodelling again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone looking for quick, professional and affordable remodel!

My husband and I had hired a contractor last summer to do some interior changes to our home and ended up letting him go two days after he started because we were not satisfied with the quality of the work he was doing. We called Mike from Michael Aldrich Construction to let him know our situation. Mike was very busy at the time we called with other clients, but not only did he take the time to come over to see what had to be redone from the previous contractor, he finished the projects by working after hours. We were extremely satisfied with Mike’s work which he completed in a timely manner. We highly recommend Mike from Michael Aldrich Construction for his professional mannerism and his precise work that he goes over and above on. Mike always makes sure that you are satisfied no matter how big or small the job is. Give him a call, you will be happy that you did.

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.
