After having two contractors mess up the foundation and framing (by not following the permitted plans) of my new room addition, I hired Blair’s. Shawn, Ty and Jake came in and fixed the foundation walls and brought the framing up to code in order to pass inspection. They came in and literally saved the day. Everyday they come on time and have followed the plans as they were intended. They have been upfront with me on costs and have worked hard to keep me up to speed throughout the process. I highly recommend these guys for big and small projects.

Shaun helped me out in a pinch, I needed someone asap and he squeezed me in. He even fixed a major electrical subpanel issue that another contractor wired incorrectly, and stayed until he got it all done. And at a reasonable cost! He knows how to do most everything, does good work, is intelligent, honest, professional and personable. I will continue to hire Shaun and am glad I found him on here.

Very timely reply to my search. Owner and his crew captain came to look over the job for true estimate, including a better plan/layout to my idea (they're the professionals). Every step was clearly explained. Work began that night (or next day?). Crew captain explained who would be coming with a brief description of each employee. Owner and crew captain were either here throughout the process or readily available. Communication was excellent! Workers were kind and respectful. Entire staff was accommodating. Work began late morning and they stayed on the job until it was finished (late into the evening, they had to be starving!) which suited my schedule perfectly. My only dissatisfaction (I am the ultimate perfectionist, and the daughter/sister of finish builders) is the craftmanship was not as precise as I would have liked. Respectfully submitted.

J Méndez painted our basement in our last house and not only stuck to the time frame he gave us, he also stuck to the price he quoted us. His work was flawless and professional. We sold that house and every showing we had they loved the basement. He also put up doors and painted trim for us and that was an added boost to our houses appearance. The people that came through the house all stated how nice the house looked, the new doors included! I highly recommend this contractor!!

Greg came out to my house the day that I called him. Wind had damaged several shingles on my roof and I was concerned about the integrity of my roof in the cold,wet winter months if those shingles were not replaced immediately. Greg came back with a very fair estimate. He arrived the very next day to repaired the roof. When he was finished the final bill was actually lower than expected! Greg also let me know about the condition of my roof in general which I appreciated.

I’ve hired several people through thumb tack and Byron is far and away the best contractor I’ve found on here. Not only was he very reasonable for pricing, but he was on time, reliable, and very easy to have continued communication with. Our complete home renovation took them about 6 weeks to finish on the small home and they did excellent work. He has great experience doing everything from plumbing to electrical to drywall work. They even helped us paint, install cabinets, backsplash, and appliances. There’s really nothing that they can’t do. I’ve been burned before by contractors on thumbtack. Unreliable guys who disappear while on a project of mine for days and you can’t get ahold of them. And some do shoddy work. Do yourself a favor and hire Byron to get any and all of your home needs done. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Dave gave a fast response. He removed ceiling insulation and cleaned up afterword. His work is thorough and conscientious. The job turned out to be more involved than expected but he stuck with it to completion and stayed with his original estimate. This was a messy job. If you need a handyman give Dave a call. I would hire again.

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.
