We had an old fence replaced with new and a door cut into the back of our home. Jim and his team were great and finished timely (even with rain delays). They also took the time to correct an issue left by the concrete contractor that they didn't have to do! Thanks so much. We are enjoying the backyard now with our 14 month old son. Feeling relieved that he can run around and not get free or hurt by the old fencing. Will definitely consider again for future projects (eventually I'll get a deck off the dining room).

Jeff got the job done more beautifully than I could have imagined. Besides our basic needs for book cases he made sure that our little ones wouldn't be able to topple them. Jeff is very professional, friendly, and courteous. He rearranged his schedule to finish up when an unexpected issue arose. Not only would I recommend Jeff for custom work in your home - I will certainly be calling him again!

Scope of work was porcelain tile in the wood plank style in a basement of a 1930s home. They worked around furniture and racks as well as an uneven surface. We were hoping to get on the schedule ASAP and Erik was able to squeeze us in being a small 300 sq ft job. They were in and out in 3 days including replacing trim and cleanup. Excellent job!

Daren ripped out the old plastic bathtub and surround in my mobile home and installed a new surround and a new porcelain tub. He was very prompt in all of our communications, completed the work in a very timely manner, and did an absolute fantastic job on the replacements, even taking the time to break down the old stuff into smaller pieces so that the garbage men would take them. I also asked if he would consider doing an additional task and he advised me how to do it myself, whereas he easily could have just taken the job and made some more money. I truly appreciated his knowledge and honesty.

CNG did a great job removing all of the old concrete, block and fill material from the front of my home. Craig and his worker Josh arrived when he had said they'd be here, did the job, and cleaned up when finished. I would hire CNG Construction again without hesitation.

This has been one of the best experiences I have had with a contractor. Mike was quick to respond. His price was very fair. He did an excellent job at repairing my front porch after someone crashed into it. He did come out to assess the job and give an estimate, and I had many contractors before that said they would come to look at the job and never respond or return . Then to make things even better, I had new carpet put in and was unable to move my doors due to the height of the carpet. I called and Mike came the very next day and fixed the problem. I will definitely call him again for future work in my home

Sharri has helped us organize our entire house, cleaning out the basement, garage, attic, closets as well as helping us better organize our living space. She is amazing. She works at an incredible pace, doing laundry while here, fixing things with her elaborate tool set she brings, all while helping us unclutter and create a better, much more functional and attractive living environment. Sharri even helps me set up and take down our backyard entertaining area every year, and comes over prior to when we entertain to whip everything into shape. She is an incredible self-starter and when she is done will have transformed your home or office. Treat yourself - it is impossible to accomplish what she can do in a matter of 4 hours, and she hauls away anything you are getting rid of. Sharri performs magic!

Very happy with the work done at my home by Qualpro (roofing and stand alone shower). Brandon and Mike were professional and ethical. They did excellent work and went above and beyond to provide a few extra little “fixes” I needed done. I would highly recommend Qualpro.

We had a very good experience with Todd, and we will definitely use him in the future! He was on time, on price, very professional, experienced in our needs, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Todd worked with us to prepare our home for sale, paint several areas that needed it, power-washed our home, carriage house and garage, and generally gave it all a very clean, fresh look enabling us to list our property for sale. Todd knows what he is doing, and my wife and I would not hesitate to recommend him and use him on our other properties. Rickey & Vickey Niagara Falls, NY 05-06-2016

Patrick was very prompt in his response and great with his project timing. The best part about hiring Patrick was his attention to detail. He quoted a reasonable price then made sure that the project was completed to a high level of care. He washed and stained our deck, taking care of small improvements throughout the job. Very satisfied with his work and would highly recommend him for a project.

Gene Whitaker's Home Improvement is an excellent business. He has had over 15 yrs experience and it shows in his work. He will not do anything that is not perfect in your eyes or his. If he orders a product that does not meet his expectations, he will return it to the store and re-order. I would do business with him whenever I need any type of building or renovation done.

      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.
