Excellent job. I needed tiling, trim- work and installation of a toilet. Mr. Cecere arrived as scheduled for the estimate and work. The job was completed as promised. The bathroom came out better than imagined. With many options out there, I am glad to have picked a skilled contractor who appears to care about craftsmanship. I will certainly call Tommy for any future projects.

Steve is, simply put, the best. Throughout the entire process, I felt confident and aware of what was going on with the project, and Steve made sure to do quality work. I've worked with other contractors before, and it's clear they're just wanting to get the project done and get paid; with Steve, he truly cares about doing the project right. I will absolutely hire him again when the time comes, and he's at the top of my list for recommendations. You owe it to yourself to hire the best, and that would be Steve.

Excellent working! It is hard to turn a landscaping dream into a reality, but Martin and his team accomplished it with ease. It is clear that they treat your yard as if it is their own. The prices were competitive, and even better, than the other landscapers we looked at. Martin has an excellent attention to detail, and you can tell that he creates things to last long after they have left. What a wonderful experience! I will hire these professionals again for any other projects I need.

Dan did an excellent job installing an alcove tub and surround for us, as well as a new bathroom vanity. Answered all questions quickly and worked with us on scheduling. Did all the work himself. Cost of services came in right at what he quoted. Good with dogs and kids. There were no unpleasant surprises with Dan. What he quoted and committed to was what we got and we definitely appreciated that as it was our first time working with a contractor.

We had an amazing experience with Tony! After having issues with the last two contractors I have hired, I was hesitant to once again try and hire a new project out to an unknown contractor...But luckily Tony restored my faith in honest professional hardworking contractors who take pride in their work and their finished products. I was offered/accepted a job out of state and I hired Tony to refinish my basement, bathroom, install new upstairs railings/spindles and at the last second also had him refinish our hardwood floors so we can put our house on the market and to say we are happy would be an understatement. Tony went above and beyond to accommodate us from day one and he understood or time constraints and the issues of moving out state pose. So much so l, that when a miscommunication (100% my fault) arose, Tony came to my house on a Sunday morning to make sure I was happy. Name a contractor that would work a full Sunday because of a customers own misinterpretation? Well Tony did when he didn't have to just to make things right in my eyes. Tony was also spot on in all of his estimates and didn't suddenly start adding a $4 nail here or a $7 bolt here but rather stayed right on track the whole time! I would, and already have, recommend Tony for any job you may have. My only regret is that we didn't find Tony sooner! PS- I think the only ones that were happier with Tony being in the house doing the work were the dogs!

1 Pro NY completed my porch and deck. I am very impressed and happy with the quality of my new deck - just spectacular! I could have hired other contractors however the crew working to complete this project were real craftsmen. The job was finished in a reasonable amount of time. I will definitely have them back for my next project.

I hired Mr.Jaffe from Freehold Enterprises to renovate my kitchen and bathroom. I was on a budget and told him I couldn't make changes to original floor plan because I knew that would be costly. Well he came up with a new design plan for me that was not only more functional but gorgeous... and it didnt cost more. He transformed my kitchen. He took the time to pick out tiles with me and created beautiful borders for the kitchen and bathroom with the tiles. He just has a great artistic eye. He saved me money by doing this and the end result was stunning.. He actually cared. I gett so many compliments on my home now and it looks like a spent a ton of money , when in fact , I didnt. I tell you, he restored my faith in contractors again. Whenever he came across a problem, whether it was plumbing or electric, he took care of it without taking advantage. I would re hire him in a second . I will never use anyone else. Thank you to Freehold Enterprises for an amazing job!

I had an excellent experience with East Coast Construction. They replaced shingles on my roof after a previous contractor attempted to patch the roof. The estimate was good and did not change, and I no longer have a lake of water in my kitchen. They also returned at a later time to replace a broken window. This home owner is very happy with their work and professionalism.

We recently used D.C. Sullivan Construction to Replace a walkway to our front door and install a chimney cap and have been delighted with the both the process and the results. Dan purposed a few ideas for both the walkway and the chimney cap, which we decided to go with his Bluestone design for both which we couldn't be more pleased with the results. Being in real estate I have worked with a number of other contractors and know when I'm working with someone who knows their business and takes genuine pride in the quality of the work they're doing- and that certainly describes Dan . All the work performed throughout the job was of the highest standard and we enjoyed working with Dan . I also really appreciated how hard he worked towards keeping the project on schedule and 'WITHIN OUR BUDGET'. Remodeling, or any kind of renovation, (whether big or small) can be very stressful- but having Dan as our contractor really helped alleviate the majority of our concerns and I will definitely be calling him for any future renovation needs we may have.

I was very pleased with the service Lawrence Smith Contracting did. I just needed a new medicine cabinet hung, and after receiving responses from Thumbtack, choose this company. Larry, the contractor, was very good about stating when he would show up and was very pleasant. He made sure the measurements were correct and if I was ok where the medicine cabinet was hung. His performed great work at a fair price and would use his services again and recommend others.

Outdoor landscape looks amazing. Leveled the yard and put in a retaining wall in preparation for a pool. Professional, easy to deal with, on time, and most important for me was Hassel free. They took care of everything. I would hire again for any future projects.

We have had McLean B Construction do two big jobs for us. We had the deck rebuilt and had to have repairs done on damage to our house. Both experiences were phenomenal. The crew arrived by 8am, spent a full day working. Every part of our new deck was cut by hand. It was solid and very secure. The repairs to the home is so good, nothing looks like it was damaged in the beginning. I am thinking of many new projects for the future. I highly recommend McLean B.

Jeb was always on time and if he was running late he would contact me. His work is amazing and he takes great pride in what he does. Jeb was always willing to discuss any changes I needed to make and was willing to work with me on them. I had a tight budget due to previous problems with contractors and he made sure to work within that and he didn’t cut corners because of my budget. I would highly recommend him!

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.
