Kevin Donath General Contracting replaced our roof, repaired some ceiling and wall cracks and a bathroom faucet issue. He was very professional. He went up on the roof and showed us pictures of the roof issues as part of the estimation process. Because of that he had an accurate idea of the job and his estimate was fair and accurate. The yard was left in good condition. We would recommend him for roof repair / replacement as well as any other repairs needed around the house.

Justin did a great job in tiling my bathroom. He was very flexible around my schedule and very cost effective. As a manager for another general contractor I would recommend Need A Hand to anyone looking for quality workmanship at an affordable price.

Luke was great to work with. He did an excellent job installing our new gutters. He delivered within the time and price he estimated. I was also impressed that I had virtually no cleanup to do after the job was done. You don’t get that with a lot of contractors! Many thanks!!

I’ve been in the construction business for 40 years as a Drywall Contractor. I know scores of builders and I chose Jason to build my garage because of his character,price and I’ve known him his whole life. He did everything I asked for and was up to the challenge when I would make changes. A few other builders I work for have stopped in and said he did a great job.

Roy came to finish some molding and trim and install some shelving. He was very professional and completed the work in top notch fashion, the trim looks beautiful. He was finishing work that was started by another contractor and even though the other contractor had not taken care to do the job well, Roy was able to somehow make it look fabulous when he was done. Would definitely hire him again.

I have had Mr. DeSantis remodel my basement and build the Alta-ment man cave that is world class work with a master bath that should be in a magazine, I have had him do work on my parents house rebuilding the front porch that was falling off the house, The way he re-engineered and built the foundation, Building it out of concrete making sure all the wood was away from the ground and solid concrete floor as part of the foundation to stop pest from getting under the porch and causing damage is out of control ! The first porch lasted 125 years, this one will last 3 or 400 years !!! Mr. DeSantis goes above and beyond the expected craftsmanship of all the work he has done for me and my family ! Old world craftsmanship ! Cares about what he's doing and it show's in all his work !!! He is the only contractor I will call to do any work that I need done !!!

F.A.S.T. properties just updated my bathroom. I have had poor experiences with contractors in the past, but i was pleasantly surprised by the work that was performed in my home. Perhaps my favorite aspect of my recent remodeling, is the detailed tile work in my shower. Its gorgeous! I am constantly receiving compliments! I want to point out also, that not only was the quality fantastic, but i found these guys to be extremely attentive toward my requests. I feel like they went above and beyond to make me feel valued as a customer. If you want the work done right, by reliable, talented contractors, then these are your guys. I highly recommend trusting them with any home improvement project.

Chris is a great! He takes professionalism to another level, he is knowledgeable, and always kept me in the loop with everything that was happening. Communication and customer service was top notch. I am usually a very skeptical person, but after meeting with Chris and receiving the estimate I was so impressed that I canceled the other contractors who were coming to give me estimates. Would highly recommend great company!

I could not be happier with the service that Justin has offered. He was unbelievably quick to respond and has been nothing but professional the entire time. Initially I was hesitant at first to hire because of the previous review, but I am so thankful I hired him because him and his team did an excellent job fixing my roof. They removed our metal roof and the layers underneath it and put on the shingles that we picked out. He was substantially cheaper than anyone else that we could find in the Watertown area to come out and do our job. Not only did he fix our roof while he was out here, but helped us while we were moving out by removing some of our waste that we had, and rebuilding our entire porch ceiling that was rotting for nearly nothing. We were in a rush to get the job so we could move out, and he dropped everything for us. My family could not be more thankful for the job that he's done for our house and it looks tenfold better. I would recommend him over any other roofer that we have dealt with. We have hired two previous roofing companies that blew us off half the time, and one broke our heavy duty composter and didn't even bother saying anything. Do not listen to his first review here. It is nothing further from the truth.

    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.

    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.  

    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.
