Daniel and his partner were the best contractors that I have ever used. This was a big project. I needed some work done to bring in water and sewage out to a building. This was a dedicated project and of them coming. My original contractor royally screwed up my project and left me with lost money and a huge mess. All MIghty Plumbing communicated early and often. Daniel was honest and advised me on any changes or challenges to make this work . The project was a great experience. Daniel is well experienced, honest and timely. 5 STARS ALL THE WAY.

If you are looking for an honest, dependable and reasonable contractor look no further. I interviewed several contractors to remove ceramic tile and laminate and install hardwood flooring throughout. He was the most reasonably priced but more important to me, he was trustworthy and put my mind at ease during a stressful process (I had experienced water damage from a broken pipe under our home and was dealing with insurance, a huge mess etc). He communicated throughout the entire process and I could rely on him for expert advice. He knows what he is doing, does it well and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and our home was in beautiful condition after the flooring was complete. When I look to remodel other areas of our home Noel will be our guy!

I would highly recommend Chris for large or small jobs around your home. Chris and his worker answered all my questions for me. When they arrived Chris and his worker looked around and assessed the work I needed done and went to work in a matter of minutes. Both Chris and his worker were very personable and easy to talk to while working. They both took the time to explain to me what their suggestions would be and I was pleased with going with their suggestions rather than my own ideas about how I wanted things done and the project to turn out. I appreciated how Chris was able to accommodate my request on getting what I needed repaired as soon as possible. He took the time to come out and do the job on a Sunday when he could've been home relaxing with his family. I felt Chris rates were very reasonable compared to other estimates I have received. Chris worker finished the projects in a short period of time and I was very happy and my wife pleased with the outcome. My wife send you and your worker Chris a big Thank You for getting the job done in time for our daughter's babyshower and one less thing she doesn't have to be concerned about for this special occasion for our daughter. Thanks again Chris and the excellent work and professional job you and your co-worker did for me! I'll contact you after the babyshower to set-up a date to do the work we talked about on my deck. Excellent work! Wife was very pleased and happy when she came home...again I would highly recommend Chris and his workers for any projects you have around the house..Thnx. —Manny & Linda

A contractor who arrives as promised, gives a fair and reasonable estimate, then completes work quickly and efficiently is very rare. Nick Gillaspie is that contractor. At my house he repaired and stained a deck, changed out a ceiling fan, hung ceiling medallions, changed chandelier in foyer and hung tapestry and huge wall hanging and left all areas in pristine condition. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any project he wants to tackle.

HIGHLY recommend Burgess Flooring - great price, great people, and great quality!!! Joe and Tina have been working in the Charlotte area for quite some time now. They are very friendly, easy to work with, and genuinely seem to have the customers best interest at heart. The Charlotte renovation demand is definitely high right now, with many contractors treating you as just another quick check. Yet, Burgess Flooring was the best value & best quality as compared to the other installers I met with. Will definitely be going back to Burgess for my next flooring project (bathrooms next). You can't go wrong with them!

Ben was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end! We had purchased a home and had the walls, ceiling, trim, doors and mantle painted in the entry way, kitchen, living rm, dining rm, hallway and main bath. His crew did an excellent job on patching the walls first, painting and clean up. The crew was professional and courteous and went above and beyond with a leak in the bathroom sink (That was not on the job list). Andy noticed the pipe under the sink was leaking and went out to his truck to get teflon tape to make the repair and advised us that that would help stop the leak but to replace the p trap. In this day and age it is hard to come by contractors that do the job they are hired for let alone go above and beyond…But that’s just what Ben’s crew did!! The house looks amazing and it was seamless, stress free and done on time! Ben communicates through the entire process and makes you feel like you are his only customer. We also had all the carpets cleaned and they look beautiful! I will definitely be hiring Ben again for other projects and have already recommended him to friends and relatives. Buying a home and doing renovations can be very stressful and Ben made it completely stress free. Hire Ben and his crew and you will not be disappointed!!

Received various bids and selected Action Plumbing due to price and their availability to do the water heater replacement asap They also had knowledge of what was required to get my installation up to current codes and discussed what was needed and their bid included everything. The big box stores all needed days just to provide a bid. Action provided their bid within minutes, then arrived on site, on time, to confirm a replacement was really required vs. just a simple fix. All work was completed within a few hours. They hauled the old water heater away and the garage was spotless when they left. No need to wait for a big box store contractor when Action did it the same day I called and with a competitive price too... perfect. Hope all my future contractor hires go as smooth as this one did. Thanks Thumtack for hooking me up with Action Plumbing! You saved me money and the hassles of dealing with 3rd party contractors and helps us avoid many days of a leaking water heater.

Bob, from Countryside Home Tech, did a fantastic job with our kitchen renovation! We kept our original cabinets and had Bob paint them white. After painting, they looked as if they had come from the factory that way. He fully dedicated himself to the work at hand, paying strict attention to the smallest detail. Whenever work was subcontracted out, Bob supervised and ensured that the contractors work was effectively done. Bob called back the countertop contractor to tweak our countertops to so the stove fit perfectly. He went above and beyond in fixing our foyer ceiling after the electricians damaged it when installing the new foyer light fixture. We plan to use Bob again to renovate our master bath in the next few months!

The quality of their work far surpasses others we've contracted. They were on-time and went out of their way to protect our stairs, walls and trim (which our last contractor always seemed to leave covered in burns and paint overspray). Jack communicated every step of the way and was a pleasure to work with.

Alexander came you house 6:30am to see what type of work we were seeking, we want to install a covered patio. Alexander said he would call us 2:30 in the afternoon.......still a no show.....Alexander you could have called if your were tied up. These contractors pick and chose what job they want to take on. I feel our job wasn't big enough. He should have said so, and we move on.

In early May 2016, I purchased laminate flooring from a big box store North of Charlotte, NC. I was on a very tight budget and didn’t have the luxury of purchasing their installation package. After all the purpose of buying from a big box store is to do it yourself to save money. Preparing to lay just over 1600 square feet of the laminate is daunting. By the end of June, it proved to push my daughter of 16 years and myself past our abilities both in experience and time to do it. My daughter is trying to complete three summer classes pushing her to spend 9-12 hours a day studying while I work to make a living. We just weren’t making any progress. It’s not often I make a recommendation for a business, but when someone goes way above and beyond, I feel it deserves a note of respect and commendation. From the moment I met you by phone conversation you were caring, professional and offered field knowledge directly relating to our concerns and issues my daughter and I had encountered during our attempts to get started. I was additionally impressed by your willingness to work with our already purchased flooring, tight budget and our hope to continue to be part of the installation process by clearing rooms, removing carpet and nail strips, and disposing of carpet and nail strips. The arrangement made it possible for us to afford the help your company was willing to offer. It’s challenging, if not impossible, to find a contractor willing to tailor the bill to fit your budget in the way that you have for done for us. You’re genuinely helpful, caring and professional. Sincerely, Homeowner

5 star all the way. Started and finished in his projected time. Professional job entire way. I have had electricians who did not support hang wire from joists. JJs plumbing attached pex appropriately, insulated the piping and even provided some education why things are done the way they are. Very informative. Their price was very reasonable. They are at the top of my rolodex for plumbers. Thanks guys

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.

For more on where to start when remodeling a bathroom check out The Complete Thumbtack Bathroom Remodel Guide.

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.
