Sean was great. Had a sagging fence at a rental property that he fixed now we are looking to hire him for more work at our home. I have had a lot of work done on my home by other contractors that had very poor communication but Sean kept me in the loop of how my fence was progressing. It was done very quickly.

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.

I needed old wood & chain link fence removed and new vinyl fence installed, as well as some painting & misc repairs. Brian sent me a proposal with prices for each part of the job. He explained everything as the job went along, was extremely courteous, professional and pleasant. Everything we agreed on was done & looks excellent. I would certainly recommend D&D if you're looking for a knowledgeable and capable General Contractor.

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.

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 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.

There is not one single negative thing to be said about John and his work! We feel so blessed to have found him on Thumbtack! Good customer service has always been one of the most important factors my husband and I consider when hiring someone or rating our experience with any company. John exceeded our expectations on that issue. We are located 2000 miles away from our home that we rent out and found we needed to have lots of work done in between tenants. John not only did beautiful work (our sister-in-law kept us updated and sent photos along the way), he stepped up and baled us out of a tough situation when another contractor that we hired to do other work prior to hiring John seemed to be having time-management issues. Since we were faced with a tight deadline with new tenant arriving soon, John jumped in and got those jobs done in 2-3 days where we had already been waiting 6 weeks to have done by the other guy! This was on top of the jobs we originally hired him for. Now faced with more challenges that came up about other issues, John has proven to us that he is the guy that can be called on and trusted for anything! Thank you, John! Thank you, Thumbtack! (If Thumbtack allows me to come back later and update this review, I'll add photos that are on my phone.)

I bought a 4-family home as a foreclosure and Paul remodeled the entire home from top to bottom, kitchens, bathrooms, refinished floors, vinyl tile in the kitchens and bathrooms, did a mold remediation in the basement and made a laundry room, repaired the siding and painted and lots more. The apartments are beautiful. I would recommend Paul to anyone wanting to get some work done. He takes the time to do a proper job and does not cut corners like other contractors.

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!

I was referred by a friend to Mr. Hausler, I trust this friends opinion so I went with this contractor. I could not be happier with the work that was done, the professionalism, his punctuality and how he cared about the work he did . I highly recommend this worker, and will use him again in any work that I need done at my home. He remodeled my kitchen, my bathroom, and replaced our septic system which was over 30 years old. I was very pleased with the price he did it for and the quality of his work. I asked him what other kind of work he does, and this man can do anything in the home. I referred him to my daughter who is currently knocking a wall down and putting In a patio. He is doing that for her.

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.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.
