Jason responded within a few minutes of my request on Thumb Tack and came by my property the same morning. I asked for weeding but also wanted general clean up and trimming of bushes and some trash hauled off. Jason made several suggestions on the work that they would do and he scheduled the work for the next day. He and his crew arrived within a few minutes of the time he projected, they were very professional, courteous and did a great job! It was expensive but I feel that it was well worth it for all of the work they did and I couldn't be more pleased with the end result.

I had POWER remove 2 walls for me and install 2 outlets in my ceiling for my game room. First of all his price was better than 2 other contractors that gave estimates. Second he was right on time when he said he would be there to start the job. Last but not least I couldn't be happier with his work. It came out exactly how I wanted it and exactly how he said it would. He finished the job in 2 days and never changed his estimate once. I will be using his service for anything else I ever need done thank you Albert I really appreciate your work.

LET ME BE VERY CLEAR: MIKE NONIES IS THE BEST CONTRACTOR I'VE EVER HAD WORK FOR ME...YOU'D BE FOOLISH TO LOOK FURTHER AND NOT HIRE HIM. WHO AM I? I am an investor and doctor who lives in a very high end neighborhood in Albuquerque. I have had over 50 contractors work for me as I do investment real estate...in 3 states. I have very high standards and OVER 50% OF MY REVIEWS ARE CRITICAL/NEGATIVE. I'm HONEST and I try to help others get good results. WHY MIKE NONIES? 1. Mike is HIGHLY VERSATILE. I've found nothing that he can't do. He does concrete, plumbing, electrical, decks, carpentry, dry wall, stucco...everything. 2. Mike is HIGHLY....HIGHLY competent. You will get an outstanding result. 3. Mike is HIGHLY...HIGHLY ethical. He is honest about his hours, goes out of his way to err on the side of only charging you for time spent. 4. Mike is HIGHLY...HIGHLY independent and trustworthy. He got upset with me for being around the house too much and said I could feel free to do all my other tasks and he would not need supervision. He was RIGHT. He works completely independently, has great judgment, is creative and problem solves. He did NOT need ANY supervision 5. Mike is EASY GOING, NICE, KIND, GOOD TO BE AROUND. NO troubles. NO problems. Do you know what THAT is worth? 6. Mike takes INITIATIVE. If he sees something that will make the outcome better, he just does it without being asked. 7. Mike is PROUD of his work and makes sure you are SATISFIED. 8. Mike is a good PLANNER. He figures out easily what to start first and what to do next making sure the job is coordinated. 9. Mike does not get STUMPED. He problem solves. 10. I made a prior mistake and hired a completely unethical contractor to do a prior deck job. AWFUL result. Mike repaired the prior job, which I wasn't even sure could be done, and the result was terrific at a reasonable cost. 11. Mike's fee per hour (I did not use a bid) was MORE than fair. Not "cheap" but very reasonable. THIS GUY IS TERRIFIC. SNAP HIM UP. IF YOU CAN GET MIKE TO WORK FOR YOU, YOU WILL BE GETTING an EXTREMELY COMPETENT GUY AT A FAIR PRICE WHO WILL DO GREAT FINISH WORK AND WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE EASY. YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY DO BETTER. EVERYONE ELSE I'VE USED ON THUMBTACK HAD RISKS. NO RISKS HERE. WAIT IN LINE IF YOU HAVE TO. MIKE CAN USE ME FOR A REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE NEEDING TO ASK A SPECIFIC QUESTION, JUST CALL.

IET was very responsive and punctual on assessing the job and fixing the electrical problem we had from a previous electrical contractor. Not only did they address the issue at hand, but also found and fixed other issues we were experiencing. They also did some in-kind maintenance work on our building. We were very appreciative of their attentiveness and great work ethic. We would and have used them with other jobs. We highly recommend IET for any electrical work that needs to be done, either residential or business.

James was excellent all around. He quickly diagnosed the wiring and light fixture problems we were having and fixed all four issues, including going above and beyond in fixing an overhead light in the basement and replacing drywall. He stuck to his quotes and was very professional, taking extra time to acquire parts that he needed out of stock at Home Depot. I would certainly recommend him to anyone seeking an affordable and highly skilled electrician for all projects large or small.

    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.

    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.
