I had a leakage issue which was coming from the 3rd floor bathroom through my kitchen ceiling. Jason quickly found the location and issue. The price he quoted to fix the two leaks was very affordable. He was kind enough to quickly drive to buy the parts needed and get right to work. Not only did he fix that, he also figured out our refrigerator issue which was shut off due to a breaker switch being off. Jason is very respectful, professional, honest, knowledgeable, and AFFORDABLE. You can't beat that. I would hire Jason again for any other issues!

He showed up as scheduled, did a nice job caulking the tub. Left a minor mess, but it's a small NYC bathroom and I cleaned it up in a couple of minutes. I'd hire them again.

Greivin was on time and very professional. He Demo'd out my bathroom tile floor and subfloor to access a broken drain pipe. He taped and protected the surrounding so dust wasn't every where. I would use his services again.

Edward was receptive initially and was able to come do the job the next day. We had an initial quote from another company for almost $1000 doing unnecessary things to our kitchen and bathroom. Edward did it for a tenth of the price. He is def. our go-to plumber. Thanks so much!

James and his team were very professional. James always gave us options based on what we requested and it made us feel that he was being fair and not trying to make a quick buck. The work completed was well done the major renovation was the master bathroom. Our bathroom looks fabulous! Tile work well done and just a clean, good look. Will refer Global Housing always and will certainly call on them again for our next project.

This guy is great. Excellent craftsmanship. He does more than you request if he sees a problem if you had not predicted or forseen. Block out a considerable amount of time because you can expect that he will take as much time as is necessary to get the job done. His Rates are very reasonable. In fact, when you see the quality of his work you would be inclined to give him more than what he asked. I did. I totally recommend this man. If you ever need a plumber call him first. Note: this is not som hype; Iam a true satisfied customer.

Rafael was very responsive and great to work with. He installed new toilet and vanity cabinet for my bathroom and I am very satisfied with the work. I will use him for upcoming projects for my bathroom and kitchen in the future. He was very honest and even helped me pick the right materials for the job.

I rarely write reviews. I've hired a lot of folks over past 30 years and Manny ranks among the top two or three. He was clear in communicating, came in at his quote, and did exactly what he was asked using high quality parts (even though he and I had not discussed that and he could have opted for lower cost materials to enrich himself, but that's just not how he operates). He takes pride in his work and his work ethic reflects it. Thx Manny! p.s. a few other plumbers declined the job proposing far more expensive solutions (2-3x as costly) simply because they felt a quick buck was in their best interest. Manny did the hard work taking a couple hours to get a difficult labor intensive job done

Peter was excellent. He came to look at everything I needed and gave me a quote before I hired him. He was on time, courteous, and did a wonderful job. I recently moved into my apartment and he explained everything as he was doing it so I would know in the future. He fixed a pocket door, installed new faucets in the kitchen and bathroom, fixed two other doors, and looked at various other things in the apartment. The bathroom faucet was more complex than we initially thought, so he came back the next morning with some different tools and finished everything up. I would highly recommend him and I will be hiring him again if I need anything done!

From initial inquiry regarding a new filtration system, Leo reached out immediately. He was available immediately for a quote and his estimate was absolutely in line with fairness and good value. His office followed up with a reminder of our appointment and Leo made contact regarding his arrival time that day. During the install he was consderate of our property. He fulfilled all the aspects of the job and more. He is knowledgeable and was able to fix long standing problems experienced with our old system. If only he could remodel my bathroom...

I simply could not be more pleased with my experience with CJ from Waterflow, cannot imagine ever hiring anyone else for projects in my apartment, and am already recommending him to my friends. I received several quotes through Thumbtack for contractors to replace my bathroom vanity and sink. However, I made the decision to hire CJ very early in the process based on his way of communicating. CJ was always highly responsive incredibly polite, and followed up to check in on my plans without ever making me feel that I was being pressured. On the day of the installation, he was a little delayed due to traffic but called precisely at his promised arrival time to let me know. He was also very engaging and easy to communicate with and I learned a lot from observing him. I have been a member of the Co-Op board for my building for many years and also undertook a major renovation in my apartment a few years ago. As a result, I know a thing or two about dealing with contractors. With all things considered, working with CJ has been my most positive contractor experience to date. I had decided to replace the vanity and sink in my bathroom but elected to keep the original faucet, which went well with the decor. In hindsight, this was not the best choice since the existing faucet turned out to be quite corroded once CJ was able to remove it. I am also quite handy and have built and repaired many things in my home myself, but knew that this job was beyond my ability to take on alone. I appreciated the fact that CJ was always receptive to my suggestions. He was very patient in everything that he did and worked delicately and carefully to preserve the existing faucet, taking his time to lubricate all the joints and make sure that al of the mechanisms were working properly.. Unfortunately, a key connector, which was probably already broken and glued together, came apart as he was trying to install it on the new sink. It was clear that we were not going to be able to reuse the old unit after all and CJ drove me to the hardware store to get a replacement. Before we left the store, he made sure that he checked all of the mechanisms for the one that we would purchase and made sure that h=it would be compatible with the new sink and vanity top. Unlike many contractors that I have worked with, CJ actually read the manual for the new faucet to make sure that his approach to the installation was correct. However, he clearly understood all of the mechanisms that he was working with and would take the time to explain things to me as he went along. I learned very quickly to trust his judgment. We ended up having to remove the bathroom door in order to get the new vanity in place, and there were quite a few challenges related to the alignment of the drain and accommodation of the shutoff valves and other existing fixtures with the shelving inside the vanity. All of this made the job take a lot longer than anticipated, but CJ remained incredibly patient and focused on all the finer details necessary to get the job done right. He was also fully prepared to honor his original estimate, which was beyond reasonable. Knowing it was well deserved, I paid CJ almost all of the extra cash that I had on hand and would have gladly paid even more. His attitude throughout the entire process was simply outstanding and his work ethic is exemplary. CJ will be my go-to hire for any other projects that I take on in my home.

I'm very blessed that I selected Erik to do my basement project. I knew he was the right person for the job the moment I met him. And he did not disappoint. He was very professional, but also fun to talk to. He's also very patient with changes that I wanted to do along the way, even if it meant taking longer to finish the job. He is very serious about satisfying the customer. He encouraged me not to settle, but to go for what I wanted so there won't be regrets later. In the end, he delivered a beautiful bathroom and kitchen/laundry room that was beyond my expectation. I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to hire him again. I have in fact talked to him about future renovations before he left :-)

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are plumbers and what do they do?

Plumbers are skilled professionals who are trained to install and maintain pipes and systems for drinking water, sewage and drainage. They usually have trained through four- to five-year training programs, which include apprenticeships, via trade schools and community colleges. Plumbers’ areas of expertise typically go beyond pipes to include mathematics, blueprint reading, plumbing codes and water distribution. They handle plumbing emergencies, such as broken pipes or clogged drains, and install and maintain everything from a new piping system to a replacement faucet. Plumbers also know how to install bathtubs and showers, toilets, water heaters and dishwashers. Plumbers may work on residential or commercial sites, sometimes designing and laying out a pipe system during construction.

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.
