Couldn't be more happier with Berry's home improvement. It was over Father's day weekend, we had a sink issue. He gave us a great price, even with his truck breaking down, he was able to accommodate us at our schedule. He examined our garbage disposal, quickly determined we needed a new one. We got one and he installed it and cleaned up within 40 mins. We will definitely be using his services again. Thank you!

In the process of selling our home and needed to replace the water heater and a corroded pipe. Ed completed the job as promised and went beyond the scope of the job by replacing a rusted vent that we did not notice before. Overall we are completely satisfied and would recommend him to anyone who needs plumbing done. Thanks Ed!

I had a great experience with G&M. They painted my 1100 sq ft apartment beautifully and even helped with some home improvement work as well. They were able to schedule quickly and did a quality job. They bent over backward to make sure I was satisfied with the finished product. Every detail was taken care of with a great attitude. I highly recommend them! Thank you!

Pete did electrical fixtures, plumbing, adjusted doors and locks and installed a new bathroom vanity. He also fixed roof seams on small roof. The work lasted 2 days. On time and a pleasure to have work in my home. I highly recommend. I'm going to use again in the very near future.

Giovanny did a great job for my basement pointing project. I just moved into a house that was recently renovated but originally built in 1892. The previous owners heavily prioritized cosmetic changes but did not do any foundation/structural work work. The brick foundation was quite crumbly and some bricks were missing. Giovanny estimated that pointing hadn't been done for probably 15 years. There was a layer of paint over the bricks as well so Giovanny had to scrape the paint in order to do the pointing. I also needed the base of my front steps (underneath the structure) to be filled in and smoothed over and for him to fix a pretty big crack where the outside concrete stairs meet the house. Giovanny was able to beat a quote from another thumbtack pro and gave me a very reasonable price. Giovanny was punctual, professional, finished the job in two days. The only area for improvement worth noting is clean up. I did have to request that Giovanny clean up the mess on the basement floor before he left. He did the best he could without any cleaning supplies. He didn't bring any and I just moved in so everything was in boxes. But in spite of this, he still deserves the full 5 stars as his work is high quality for a fair price. I will be hiring Giovanny again for any masonry needs in the future.

I had Sewell install 6 doors at my 42 year old home. The project was challenging as original materials (door frame) were not the best quality which created double the work. Through everything, Sewell resolved the issues and the doors were installed beautifully. It's at times like this that it pays to have a professional with years and years of experience. Sewell showed up on time, did a great job, his price was the best among all the quotes I received and he left my place as clean as he found it. I would recommend his services to anyone! Thank you Sewell!!

I hired James to do a kitchen renovation for me at my home, and it was a great decision. From beginning to end the service and professionalism was top notch. The quality of work provided was excellent as well. James and his crew also did work for my parents, redoing their bathroom which also yielded the same results. Excellent work and service. I would highly recommend Global Housing Contractors to anyone looking to do home improvements.

After putting in a request for a repair on my kitchen stove, I was promptly contacted by Paul Ryder and was able to arrange with him to come out the same day. He arrived on time and was quickly able to detect the problem and fix it. I highly recommend you contact him to discuss whatever home improvement or repair issue you have. After talking with him it became obvious he has extensive experience in tackling large complicated remodeling jobs as well as small repairs and decorating projects.

Douglas did a makeover with the wilderness that was taking over our house. He was responsive, listened to what we wanted and was able to deliver it in an impressive amount of time. In just two days our outdoor space went from a weed infested crazy yard to a beautiful outdoor space where we can actually entertain. We were able to workout a design that could fit our budget while still adding charm. His wife also has a good eye and will make suggestions is you are not sure what you want to achieve as end result. His employees were very friendly and did a couple of things that they saw was needed regardless of it being quoted or not (taking down a decaying branch from our tree). They were responsive, fast and respectful. I would highly recommend them to anyone and would use them again.

JTK Remodeling, Tim, did a fine job with the projects I needed help with. He was right on time and got right to work. He had asked me to send him pix prior to coming to do the work so he prepped and made sure he had the right materials to complete the job - no surprises - well there was 1 little surprise, not his fault, and he managed to work around it anyway. Very personable.

Very happy with the quality of work. Dan got back to me the same day and was able to begin work on the two room project the next day. The guys were very nice and respectful of our home. Couldn't be happier with the work they did to take down the wallpaper, skim coat the walls and paint the two rooms. They got it done just as they promised and I felt the price was a good value for the work done. Thank you!

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.
