I just had 12 interior slab doors installed by 1Pro NY. I can’t say enough about how happy I am for choosing this company. I was very hesitant to hire a contractor because I’ve had so many bad experiences throughout the years with different contractors who don’t take pride in their work, often providing poor workmanship that needed to be redone. I can honestly say 1 Pro NY is the best company I have ever used!! They are always on time, friendly and very skilled in what they do. Many of the doors needed to be cut down to odd sizes in order to fit properly, which required experience and skill. I will definitely hire them again in the near future for other projects in my home and have highly recommended them to my family and friends. Thank you Geralyn and Pat for everything!

My husband and I hired Frank, The Home Pro, to do some electrical, plumbing and painting work on our new home. Not only has he been incredibly professional and clearly knowledgeable about all aspects of home improvement, but he has also been so kind. He has put up with tons of questions and has been excellent at teaching this new home owner every step of the way. He also recommended his Uncle and cousin for our painting work, as that is their primary focus and the paint job was time sensitive. They did an excellent job and were just as friendly. Both Frank and his family are reasonably priced and well worth the cost. We are so glad we hired The Home Pro!

I am in the contracting business and in all my experiences working with tradesmen, Night Owl went way overboard to complete a job that had many obstacles. I was really impressed with their commitment to complete a difficult job in difficult conditions. If you don’t give Night Owl a chance to bid on your project, you are missing out on a well done addition or repair to your home. And to end this review, the price was very reasonable. Give Night Owl a try, you won’t regret it!

Darryl did a seamless gutter job for me at my home in Saratoga Springs. When I started this project on Thumbtack he responded immediately and gave me a great price. He came out right away to take measurements and help me match downspouts to the color of my siding. He did the job in the agreed-upon time, and even came back the next day to touch up one spot that I needed help with. I would recommend Darryl and his company for not only Seamless Gutters but a variety of other Home Improvement needs.

Justin is knowledgeable in a great many areas which is rare these days. He has helped me (get ready, it's a long list..) paint, replace roofing, re-insulate, replace cedar siding, replace windows, build a 3-season room and adjoining deck, repair and repoint a chimney, tile a shower, replace plumbing & heating systems, rehab a covered front porch and build a 2nd entrance/mudroom on my house. He also rehabbed my entire kitchen, complete with porcelain tile floors, tiled backsplash and new cabinets. My house needed everything after being purchased from an estate. His attention to detail is amazing and his work cannot be beat! Thank you for making my house a home!

We would highly recommend Pro Performance Contracting. Lawrence Smith did an outstanding job with our bathroom remodel. Lawrence worked within the time frame we agreed upon and modified our design as we requested. Fortunately for us Lawrence is knowledgeable in all aspects of construction. In addition to our remodel we had an unexpected leak in the kitchen ceiling.Lawrence was able to fix our plumbing issues along with the ceiling repair. Lawrence is an above average craftsman. We feel confident in referring Pro Performance Contracting for your next project. Dan McAlonen and Anita McGill

Dave DiNicola installed a drop ceiling in my basement. Dave was responsive from the start and presented a very competitive bid for the job. He and his team were highly professional and had anticipated that the job might take two days. They were able to complete it in one day, and Dave reduced his price accordingly. I would use Dave for other projects given his quality of work, professionalism, responsiveness and punctuality.

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.

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 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.

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 much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
    • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.
