I am not someone who typically writes reviews, mainly because I'm not easily impressed. I'm not easily pleased. With that being said, Ian Williams completely exceeded my expectations and in my book a job well done doesn't go unrecognized. I am renovating my basement, and I needed 168 feet of base and shoe molding. Ian installed it PERFECTLY!! The price was fair, and the work done was absolutely excellent. I couldn't ask for more. Usually after a contractor leaves, I look over and pick apart there work, and I'll call them back to fix something, or I simply won't hire them again and won't refer them. With Ian Williams, I feel confident to refer him, and I will most definitely call him for future jobs. Ian also worked around my schedule, which made it easier for me. In my experience, a lot of contractors won't show up, or be late or have some other lame excuse. If Ian says he will show up at a specific time, he will be there, I assure you. Reliability and dependability seems to be rare these days. If you need some precision carpentry done, Ian Williams is the go to guy. If you want a contractor who is meticulous, picky and very particular about things, then Ian Williams is the only choice.

Tom did an overall good job, but the original project time frame more than doubled due to problems with inspections and schedules of some of the sub-contractors. There were a few areas lack of attention to detail caused problems, but they were resolved without too much extra effort. I suspect a more experienced contractor would have been able to keep ahead of the situation with better planning. The finished bathroom is about 90% of what we expected, as there were some fit/finish issues. That said, I am a very hard person to please when it comes to quality/craftsmanship, I doubt the average homeowner would ever notice or care about the minor things that bother me. Planning : C Punctuality : A Response to changes by homeowners: A Response to problems during the job: B Project clean up (contractor and all subs) : B Overall grade: B

Sean was amazing! He tiled our new bathroom recently and it looks fantastic. Such a nice person and very respectful of my home and family (even our cat, Johnnycakes liked him!). Quality of work was superb. We made some last minute changes and he rolled with it without a complaint. Also he's very clean, which is very much the opposite of what we experienced with other contractors. 10/10 would have him here again.

Dennis and his team are great! They did a bathroom reno for us while we were traveling, and they were trustworthy and did great work. There are a couple of minor things that could have been better: there were a few scuffed spots on door frames and a long dirty smudge along the brand-new baseboard in the bathroom, as well as a couple of dings in the paint in there, and a thick layer of grime along the top of our light fixture; they cleaned up for the most part, which made these things really stick out. The biggest problem we had with them was payment method; they're an older company and aren't up-to-date with modern payments like PayPal or Square, so we had to do complicated banking on the road to get them paid, which was frustrating for us - and I'm sure, for them as well! Otherwise, they were really great. They really know their stuff, they do thorough and solid work, they're professional and timely, and they provided everything we expected and hoped for. We'll hire them again for any additional remodeling work we need done!

Tony is the best! The work he did on our attic renovation was incredible. After a few no quotes because the job was “too difficult” we found Tony who loved the challenge. The job was tough because we have a hip roof, steep ceilings with little vertical wall, throw in 3 dormers, a walk in closet and full bathroom and you get a tounge and groove job not for the faint of heart. Few standard lengths and no standard angles required a lot of measuring, precise cutting, with creative thinking using custom crafted trim to blend it all together. Tony came in well under the cost suggested by those who no quoted. I recommend Tony to anyone for any contracting work but to those with the tough job who want top quality at a great value. Tony is your only answer. Ask Tony for a walk through of our attic renovation to check out his work. Ryder and Shayne Russell. Kalamazoo

Working with Keith was a great experience. He responded very quickly. Was very professional. This was my first experience using thumbtac and i will use them again. He did a couple small plumbing and electrical projects for me in the time he quoted plus explained everything to me. We have already planned another electrical repair. Once that is complete we have already discussed a bathroom renovation. I highly recommend Link Family Services LLC for your handyman project and look forward to adding renovations to his portfolio. Very satisfied client in Kalamazoo/Plainwell area.

I have several commercial buildings in downtown Gr. Rpds. I feel very fortunate to have Dair as my contractor. He can do it all. Tile, flooring, carpentry, cement work, complete renovations. Anything I throw at him. His work is high quality. Top drawer. Never disappoints. He is dependable. I would be surprised if there were 2 like him in Gr Rpds. I have found but one.

I believe my work speaks for itself. My attention to detail is impeccable and that isn’t just with what you see. What is behind the wall or under the flooring carries just as much importance as the finishings of each project. What good is a beautiful kitchen is it doesn’t hold up for a lifetime?

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.  

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.

How much will it cost to remodel my house?

The cost to remodel a home is highly variable — size and scope of the project, quality of materials, and the number of subcontractors required to complete the job all affect the total cost. The average national cost of a home renovation project is $13,500. The national average per-square-foot cost of a remodel ranges from $25 to $100. Nationally, kitchen and bathroom remodels are the most popular types of projects, in part because they typically have the highest return on investment when the home is sold. The national average cost of a major kitchen remodel ranges from $25,000 to $62,000, while the average bathroom remodel tends to cost $6,000 to $18,000. In addition to materials and labor costs, many remodeling project costs include permit fees, which, average $900 or more, depending on your location.
