Dan added a new bath room to our house a couple of years ago with a huge walk in shower for handicap people. Awesome. Beyond anything we had ask for. And he did some other remodeling for us at the same time. All new doors, interior and exterior. Wheel chair ramps outside. Has remodeled the kitchen since then. Dan is the best at his craft that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He takes so much pride in his work and it shows in the quality of his work. He's the one contractor I trust 100% to do me right.

Bryan took care of an urgent roof repair at one of the properties I am managing out in Cache. He was very responsive and got the job done ASAP even with some weather delays. I would definitely hire Generals Home Repairs & Remodeling for any future repairs/rehab work.

Joey is a great guy. We had a pretty big project for him. His references all raved about his work, and it seemed like he had done something like this before. This is a zero star review. But I put 4 stars because I like the guy. If someone takes the time to read this, then I think they deserve to know the truth. I feel badly writing this review, but I just feel it needs to be said! Hire Joey, but only on the condition that he does not have anyone else work on your home. I have a feeling he does good workmanship by himself, but he needs to let his inexperienced, at times aloof and sort of mean worker go, or at least not allow him to work unsupervised. We had already gone through another contractor before him that was as unorganized as Joey turned out to be. So, perhaps we are bad customers. But I have to be honest here. This is my effort to prevent someone else from going through the regret and $15,000 that have now. The only thing I am completely satisfied with in the bathroom that Joey worked on is one of the two shower heads, and the color of the paint which Joey picked out. While Joey (or more likely his worker) has attempted to fix things and clean up details, they just don't have an eye for it. The job looks unprofessional, DIY, crafty. I am embarrassed to show people our bathroom. I've asked my husband to keep the "big remodel" a secret, don't bring it up please, so we don't get people excited and wanting to see it. The job started March 14. He told me it would take 3 weeks. I planned on four. It is June 30 and I am still waiting on glass for the shower wall and door.

    We hired Leonard to remodel a bathroom... From the get go Leonard represented his business with 100% professionalism. The bid was very easy for us to follow- He itemized the materials necessary, every part he would be replacing and addressing during the remodel ... It was all there. Not only was it all spelled out for us ... We could actually understand it. Leonard is actually not the first contractor we have used ... So we understand when things don't go as planned it can get really frustrating for everyone. Leonard never wavered, he rolled up his sleeves and actually kept us calm too... He just kept on going! Many, many, things went wrong during this project because of the age of the house... Four contractors in the past twelve years have "attempted" these repairs... All of them backing out after they had placed a quick bandaid over the real problems and none ever telling us what really needed to happen to actually fix the problems we were having. Leonard has more than impressed us with his ability, integrity, work ethic, and most of all his commitment to us!!! I strongly recommend Country Works to anyone that is looking to remodel, who needs a repair from a simple to complex problem HE IS WHO YOU SHOULD USE... NO DOUBT! HAVE A BLESSED DAY.

    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.
