What was supposed to be a kitchen faucet install quickly proved to be much more due to the previous contractor we used. Jerry was a lifesaver and we will for sure call him in the future, we already have projects we want to scedule with him. So happy we found him and he made himself available so quickly!

Joshua is a great guy and really helped me out. Would highly recommend him, and anyone can contact me as a reference if needed - Tony at 314-249-0038. Had a general contractor who did a poor job on a restoration of a walk-in closet/vanity area. Found Josh on Thumbtack, who came on short notice and did the following tasks: Bought shelving/brackets for me, identical to what I had, and added a second level of shelving in the closet on either side. Transplanted separate shelving from the closet back wall to another room. Spackled and painted various holes and rough wall areas. Bought wooden quarter-round trim and installed it on the vanity base. Wood-stained a neglected area of the vanity. Removed the entire vanity countertop, cut it to proper size, then re-installed it. Repositioned light fixture and mirror to proper centering. Cut and hammered in a piece of baseboard on that back closet wall, also neglegted by the previous contractor. I feel very lucky that I could find somebody like Josh to get this sorted out for me that quickly.

Hire them! I have had more bad experiences than I would like to admit with contractors not finishing what they start, or even starting at all. This has been the BEST experience I have had-ever! No complaints so far, still have a growing list I want them to complete but I have no doubt the list will get done. They work quick and work around my schedule. Communication, which is super important to me, has been wonderful along with the quality of work. I could go on and on, just hire them if you want a stress free experience. You will not regret it. So glad I found them. I swear I am not related to them, just a very happy customer.

On my communication thus far (am yet to contract), he has been very promt to respond and excellent in accommodating my constraints. If my job agreement (arrived at before knowing Toby) with the present contractor falls through, will surely be willing to work with Toby

I don't often need electrical and installation done on my home, but Roman with Roman Remodeling was fantastic. My wife and I had some bad experiences with other contractors but Roman made everything go smoothly. With his skills, experience, and knowledge, we were able to get our fan installation with no problem. This guy knows his stuff and he's incredibly professional and gets the job done all while being very personable. Great attitude, ability, and service.

We had a wonderful experience hiring Barrale Brothers Painting. Was on time, provided excellent service very detailed. They painted are exterior of our house , really needed a lift.John came in and totally transformed our house it's been almost 3 years and still looks great we are still getting compliments. They turned our home to something out of a magazine. We recommend barrale brothers to everyone we know.My husband and I have hired plenty of contractors over the years, never seen a detailed professional contractor like the Barrale Brothers. Two thumbs up keep up the great work

What a pleasure it was meeting Don and enlisting his services to build our deck and retaining wall. His was one of two contractors who responded to our bid and we couldn't have imagined choosing anyone else. Don is professional, genuine and courteous. He was also reasonably priced and went out of his way to meet & exceed our expectations. The retaining wall included one of many upgrades and our beautiful deck was finished with patience and care. We highly recommend Don's services and look forward to his assistance in finishing our basement. Thank you.

Ken and his team did a complete bathroom remodel for me. It was a complete gut job with a modified layout. I could not be any happier. Great communication, VERY professional, cleaned up every day. I talked to several other contractors before I met with the salesman Mark. His knowledge was obvious and the price was very fair. I am so glad that I met these guys. I will definitely use them again.

Based on my personal experience, I would highly recommend Dave and Remolding Solutions, LLC. Dave was a tremendous help with a very bad home build construction situation I was dealing with. A previous general contractor (GC) I had hired with a different company proved to be unscrupulous. The previous GC was an epic fail as a business person and a disgrace to the construction industry who left my home build unfinished, in disrepair and caused other damages to my property. The situation had left me in a state of utter exasperation, frustration and on the verge of despair. Dave and Remodeling Solutions, Inc came to the rescue; restored my sanity and faith in mankind. His knowledge, willingness to assist, business ethics, genuine kindness and concern were invaluable. I am forever grateful for Dave's help and standard of excellence in conducting business!

Needed a garage demolished, got bids from a couple contractors, but Keith's was the only bid that included everything and could accommodate my request to keep some of the materials. I really appreciated that there were no surprise costs. The job took a little longer than they had initially estimated, but they got it done. I also appreciated that, even though I had asked for the garage to be completely demolished, they noticed that a lower portion was acting as a retaining wall, and recommended that I keep that piece to control erosion. They even gave me instructions on how to cap the remainder to make it look nice. All in all, great experience!

I have been using Beyer General Contractors on ALL my projects. They have hung gates, fixed fencing for me, built me two horse stalls from scratch, hung outdoor lights, fixed stall doors and last but definitely not least they are building me my indoor riding arena! This a company that knows how to seriously do ANYTHING. Not only do they know how to do anything and everything, their quality of work is top notch.. they make sure everything is done perfectly and how they would want it done if it was theirs. They also have amazing communication, you will never be out of the loop on status of work, etc. I can't say enough good things about this company. HIGHLY recommend!!!

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.
