Jim, Shane, and their crew were absolutely stellar! They installed a new hardwood floor throughout our entire, multi-level first floor (~900 sq ft). There were multiple existing floors that had to be removed first, including tile, carpet, and a challenging cherry hardwood previously installed under our kitchen cabinets. They were beyond courteous, professional, punctual, and responsive to every ask of ours. Some contractors you have to watch and call their attention to some details that didn’t come out to your expectations....but not with Jim and Shane. Their work is detailed and thorough. You can tell they take their time and “shortcuts” are not an option with them. They just do things right. I can’t wait to hire them again for our next project! Thanks Jim and Shane!

Matt removed popcorn ceilings from the entire second floor of the house. The finished product looks fantastic, I couldn't be happier. His pricing was very competitive, and his schedule for completion was very timely and met my needs. I would strongly recommend Matt for your general contracting needs.

I have been in process of remodeling my garage including insulation and drywall. I've been doing most of the work myself with a friend helping. My friend got hurt on his real job and bailed on me. Thus, the necessity for using thumbtack. Thumbtack referred me a few painting professionals and the price couldnt.be beat. Chris completed what I started including sanding, mudding, sanding again, primer and finally.paint. Allthough he was the cheapest, hew was also attentive & conscientious with his work. Would hire again. A+ Thanks again Chris. Jeff

Darren did a fantastic job and was a pleasure to work with. Had the room down to studs and he put it together as we wanted. We couldn't be happier with the results. I would recommend Selvaggio General Contracting to anyone who asks and will be calling for future projects when they arise.

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

ICL is great! They were very accountable and responsive which I have found had to find in contractors lately. Their work was spot on and completed everything we agreed on and more. They were also clean and completed the project on time. Their communication was also great. I have already hired them again and will continue to work with ICL. Would recommend to everyone for small or big projects.

Todd contacted us immediately after my inquire, and met with us that day. He completed everything personally and to perfection. Highly qualified and we have since discussed future jobs. Honest and reliable are words we don't use often enough these days when it comes to contractors, but this one is both!! A true credit to his profession he is an example of what more people should be!

We received five appraisals before deciding to go with John. Not only did he provide the lowest bid, but he was punctual (two appraisers never showed up at all), very professional, humble, and enthusiastic about doing a good job. I'm a novice at this stuff, but John never showed contempt or superiority when working with someone unfamiliar with this type of project. After we accepted his bid, John didn't disappoint. He and his crew were on time, very thorough, nice guys, and did a GREAT job. We're in the process of fixing up an old house and have dealt with a host of contractors/carpenters, not all of whom have been gems. That said, I could not recommend this one more highly. If your experience is like mine, he'll give you an honest, highly competitive bid and follow through by doing the job right.

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.

Don is an expert in so many areas for general construction and maintenance it is simply amazing. Not only that, but he is also tremendously dedicated and hardworking. If I had 2 guys like Don, we'd rebuild the city in a weekend.

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.
