Excellent work and work ethics. Showed up on time and worked all day instead of half a day like other contractors. Attention to detail was also excellent. Scott will be doing any and all my remodeling and additions in the future. Great job Scott. Thank you so much

Jay did an aMAZIng job with the project I hired him to do. I purchased a 1960s brick ranch with a very boxy layout and wanted to open up the layout of the kitchen/dining area. Jay came out looked over everything listened to what I wanted and had awesome insight on how we could achieve the outcome. In not much time at all he brought my house right up to 2014. He is truly a professional, an artist when it comes to his craft, and an all around great guy! He has officially made himself my "go-to" contractor. (He even worked on his birthday!)

I hired Shannon to design my master bathroom. Shannon's design skills and creativity took my bathroom far beyond anything I could have imagined. My small bath visually appears much larger due to her design, tile selection, and color choices. Shannon's team of contractors are perfectionists, who worked tirelessly to achieve these results. Shannon, not only has exquisite taste, but she will work within your budget. I highly recommend Shannon and would not hesitate to hire her again.

I love my beautiful new bench setting area! I was afraid my job would not be of importance because it was small in comparison to their other jobs, but I was wrong. Working with contractors can be "difficult", but not these professionals, everything was complete on time! They exceeded my expectations and I am so thankful for choosing Lazzari Construction. Next on my list, built-ins!

The project went smoothly and done in a timely manner. Frank the project manager also helped supervise the work of other contractors ie: carpet installation. I am strongly considering to have FCC do an additional project. I may have had cheaper quotes but by having full coverage insurance and a committed attitude I felt FCC would provide the best overall value.

Johnny did everything he said he would. He worked to our very contracted schedule between other contractors and did a fantastic job. Would definitely use Hoffman & Sons again for other painting work as well as recommend him to others.

David and his crew professionally assessed the requirements that would have to be done in order to finish a job started by a handyman who turned out to be not as handy as he promised. David gave me a fair and honest appraisal of what needed to be accomplished in order to finish the job-in-progress. His candor, without impugning the capabilities or honesty of the initial individual, gave me a very good idea of what needed to be done to get back on track and how long it would take, along with an accurate estimate of the overall costs. David said he'd be done in two weeks and he was, unlike the first person who also promised two weeks then disappeared after milking me of the quoted money over a three month period, leaving a disaster, and completely disappearing. To say that I am happy with David's work is an understatement. He did what he said he would and did it very well. Outstanding is closer to describing his work and the results. My only regret is that I did not think of him initially. We would have a great building but it would have cost a lot less. I am grateful to David and his crew for cleaning up the mess left by another, and making everything right. When I saw David's name on Thumbtack I recognized it and immediately confirmed that he was the man who routinely maintained the duplex we rented when we first transferred to this area about 20 years ago. While we lived in it, he did a super job maintaining the duplex. For those who don't know, having a house on the beach may sound romantic but the romance comes at a very high maintenance price; the environment is flat-out hard on structures and vehicles. David did a superb job then and his quality of work has only improved. If you need his services, I very highly recommend him as the go to guy. Don't make the mistake I did; you will get the quality of work for which you are willing to pay. I found David to be fair and honest. His crew work hard and are as professional as he. What more could you ask?

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 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.
