Paul was one of the best contractors that I've ever worked with (from any trade). He showed up when he said he would and got straight to work. He was self sufficient and didn't bother me at all during the entire job. Even when the scope of the project increased Paul didn't complain or raise the price. My chimney look immaculate. I happily paid more than what he quoted me. I'll be going with Paul for all of my masonry needs for as long as he's in the business. If you're considering going with him for a project he's well worth it.

Jason and his team are awesome! They worked quickly, totally cleaned everything up before they left (which was really important to me because I have kids and dogs who could step on nails) and they were competitively priced. Even if they had been more expensive than the other bids though, I would have hired Summit Builders to install the roof because they were so easy to work with. Jason always called me or emailed me back immediately and even came back to touch up the roof after an electrician readjusted the mast.

Larry was a wonderful find. He is great to work with. He is good at communication, which is hard to find in building trades and interior contractors. He was on time each day and honest and realistic about time for completion. I highly recommend Larry. Debra Carlton

Russ was awesome!! He was the most professional contractor we have worked with since moving into our house, and his work is the highest of quality. He built us a deck, fixed our siding, and removed a pesky load bearing wall that was separating our living and dining rooms. Every time I walk into our new space, I can't help but smile at the work Russ did for us. We plan on calling him for our future projects, he's the only one we trust to do the work!

John was punctual & professional from start to finish. I couldn’t even get other companies to come give me an estimate until 3 weeks from now! A leak in our bedroom ceiling was not something we were comfortable waiting on. He came out, assessed the damage, explained the process & the price & was able to come back & do the repairs within 24 hrs of our approval. We are very satisfied as this has been the ONLY company that has actually responded in a timely manner & completed the work at a reasonable price since we moved here 9 months ago. For whatever reason - we have not had good experiences with contractors in the last 9 months some relocating. We will be calling Integrity from now on with all future repairs:) thank you!

Luke did a great job remodeling our bathroom and mudroom, while also doing our garage addition. The process of getting detailed specifications, 3-D drawings and transparent pricing upfront made the process very straightforward from the beginning. Once we started, Luke's communication on scheduling and following through on all the details to ensure everything went smoothly and to our satisfaction was greatly appreciated and valued. Luke brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to our home that was very beneficial, including knowing how to get high quality from certain vendors for a reasonable price. Not only did he do well on the projects that we used him on, but he also helped us with general recommendations and contacts for some other home improvements where Luke did not need to be involved. He genuinely enjoyed helping us improve our home. I highly recommend getting his insight and using his services.

Nathan was nothing short of absolutely outstanding. We had so many contractors submit estimates for a ton of projects for our salon renovation. Nathan was prompt and the first person to submit a bid complete with accurate measurements and drawings. His price was amazing but we hired him because of his attention to detail, even just in the estimate and design phase. When we actually started the work he gave us an accurate timeline and kept us updated on what was happening since we live out of town. Anytime we had a change for him he took it in stride and did the new work quickly. We will hire him again for our next salon opening and hopefully our houses we renovate this year. Do yourself a favor and hire him he’s amazing. I’ll add photos to this review shortly.

I had a roof leak that they responded to very quickly. This led to them putting on a whole new roof! They didn’t charge me for repairs at all, did an amazing job, and did the roof in one day! They cleaned up well after and they were very professional. They’re a great company to work with, and they made the stressful process very easy for me!!! My roof looks great and I would definitely recommend them to anybody!

Jeremy was a pleasure to work with! He was patient with us and took our project in phases that were easy to understand. He met and beat deadlines, stayed within budget, did amazing work and even repaired some items that were messed up from a previous contractor.

When Centex built our home in 2003, they went cheap and instead of using a pipe that fit, they soldered extensively behind the wall to our shower to make the pipes fit. When we went to replace the leaking shower head, we found this issue. The soldering had broke and needed to be repaired. We hired, after hiring several other contractors, Blessed, to come fix the issue. I corresponded with April, the owner, and arranged for the service. Bill called about 30 minutes out and arrived on time. I showed the Bill the problem, and he immediately knew what was the issue and how to fix it. I am currently on crutches so I was hesitant as I could not get in and out of the basement to turn off the water. Not needed. Bill was able to remove the old soldering, install a coupling, etc - and do all that plumbing stuff that I have no clue how to do. Long story short, he was done in about an hour and the cost was $25 less than he had quoted. He advised what small items we needed to do ourselves (he could have, but I asked if we could finish this part) to get the shower working - install face plate, and handle, etc. Note, others had given me estimates of a low of $500 up to over $1K. We found Blessed Plumbing also on the Blue Pages (Christian yellow pages) and were very confident with his work. He even gave some other suggestions on issues we were having (water hammer) and offered some maintenance advice on our aging sump pump. I enjoyed my encounter with this company and would not hesitate to call on them again for any plumbing problem we encounter. It is hard and rare to find honest people/contractors.

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.
