Nick and his team did a great job helping my wife and I fix a range of home repair issues before we moved into our new home. Their work was done to a very high level of quality and quickly. If you are looking for someone in the Charlotte area to help you with a range of home repair issues (Roofing, Drywall, Plumbing and finish work) I highly recommend Nick and his team.

We cannot recommend Burgess Flooring enough! We worked with Tina and Joe to replace the carpeting in our living room, hallway, and kitchen with vinyl plank. They were incredibly professional and easy to work with. They made the entire process a breeze - they even helped with ordering all the materials, and helped secure an additional discount on material! The process could not have been easier. On top of great service, they were also really reasonably priced. It feels like we have a whole new home! Special thanks to Tina - you rock :)

From the initial quote via Thumbtack to project completion, Ben was very responsive and did a wonderful job painting our new home. We even requested one of the walls be painted in a striped pattern and they look fantastic. Even when there was a slight issue, Ben was quick to resolve it. One of the painters accidentally chipped the corner of one of the bathroom mirrors he took down when painting and Ben replaced the entire mirror free of charge. Price was very competitive and we would recommend his services to anyone looking for interior painting services.

Was so impressed with these guys. John has personality plus. He installed our new toilets nice and tight. No mess made. They showed up on time if not slightly early to the job. I felt very comfortable with him being in my home. He took his time doing the job and made sure it was done right. I am so happy that I went with him. I will be using him for all my future plumbing needs. I highly encourage everyone to use them. I also want to add that his price was far better then all of the quotes we received and I found his communication throughout the entire process to be exceptional. Thank you again for everything. It was honestly a pleasure doing business with you.

We hired Isaac and his crew to replace our downstairs floors. They did an amazing job! They showed up on time and stayed super late in order to finish up the job the next day. These guys went over and beyond what I had even expected. I HIGHLY recommend them for any of your home improvement needs. My husband and I are actually going to hire them to remodel our bathrooms and our future investment property.

John came out to install 3 doors in our home. Not only did a wonderful job with that installation, he also did a renovation of our bathroom at the same time. The turn around from the time he came out to do the estimate until the job was complete was so fast. He is extremely professional, on time and his work is of amazing quality. After 20 years in Charlotte it is amazing to find an honest and trustworthy contractor. I will definitely be using him again soon.

Originally I hired him to patch up some sheet rock. However he also provided a good price to repaint my walls afterwards. He was very professional on time and quite. This was important to me because my wife works from home. I am very happy with Mr. Smarts work and I will not hesitate to hire him again.

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.

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.

How do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.
