When you feel comfortable enough to immediately start cracking jokes and trading stories with your contractor you know it's going to be a great experience. Glenn is easy going, knowledgeable, trustworthy and an all around friendly guy. He completed my work needed and went above and beyond the call of duty. I would definitely recommend Glenn for any of your future project needs!

Cortez is your man. Promptly responds to your request. When you meet him he instills confidence he knows what he is doing. He does professional work. While he is a journeyman painter he is very knowledgeable about construction. He comes from a family of contractors, his father being a roofing contractor. His pricing is very competitive and his product first rate. Try him and you too will be recommending him to others.

Victor replaced a tar roof on my office building. I am very pleased with the new roof. What makes Victor shine is his honesty and willingness to work through difficult situations such as short notice changes to the roofing schedule. He has a great crew that works hard. Victor is easy to reach (a real plus for a contractor) and quick to respond to messages. I would use him again for any work on my building that he is qualified for.

Jesus is a great contractor to work with, and I will recommend him to friends. He did everything right, from the estimate to the finished work. The intial contact, the estimate, the communication, the expectation, the delivery, and the final product were all excellent, if there were 6 stars, I'd give him another one.

I just completed a condo remodel for a client in SW Portland. I worked with the client to help her design and project manage the work from start to finish. Part of the process is partnering with General Contractors to undertake the work. This project included a kitchen remodel, (new cabinets, quartz, appliances etc) new flooring and painting throughout. Ben was selected as the contractor to do the work for a variety of reasons. He was responsive, communicated well, his rates were good and he committed to get the work done in just over 3 weeks so they could list the property on the market. Ben worked long hours to achieve this, was flexible throughout the process and listened well. In this case he was managing my expectations and meeting the needs of the client. The work got achieved on time, within budget and the client is very happy with the end result. I would certainly use Ben again on another client project. Thank you!

We are very thankful that we found Tim Napper and Cory of 3:16 contracting. We were self contracting and had initially hired 3:16 to do drywall. But, they came to the rescue when we had problems with our framing contractor. After a meeting with the city inspector, we hired 3:16 to fix and complete the framing. Tim and Cory helped turn our dream addition from a nightmare back to a dream. They did a great job and have restored our faith and trust that there are good people in contracting! Now we have and will continue to use 3:16 for our contracting needs. Thank you 3:16 contracting!!! Jenny and Liz

Scott and his apprentice installed custom-built book cabinets in our living room and did a fantastic job. He is very detail-oriented, punctual and wants his work to be of the highest quality. He gave us a fair price on the installation, and he quickly fit our project into his busy schedule. Overall, we are very pleased with Scott's work and will call him first when we again need a general contractor. Highly recommended!

Greg helped us with a project that began DIY and slowly turned into a predicament. We took off our kitchen cabinet doors to stain them and were completely baffled at how to get them back on and look even with each other. Greg saved the day by graciously taking the time to give us a hand, attaching the cabinet doors back onto the cabinets. He also gave some good tips for future reference. He was polite and professional, timely and respectful. We will definitely be working with him again once we have bigger projects- like building a fence or tiling our shower. We highly recommend Greg, as he is just a person who genuinely enjoys helping people and working on projects.

My experience is cabinetry. They have the experience to ask questions about use, functionality and look - things you don’t consider but make a huge difference in how you use and enjoy the space. They are one of the few contractors I know where I can hand over keys to my home and know they will finish on-time or ahead of schedule - complete trust.

After attempting to work with multiple (disappointing) contractors, I somehow stumbled upon Thumbtack and was matched with Brian for a project. My husband and I were trying to get new flooring put in and remove a closet before we moved into our new home, as well as multiple other projects to be done later, such as refinishing our deck and bringing it up to code, fixing some posts under the house, redoing bathrooms, and some kitchen cabinet work. Brian responded to my project proposal on Thumbtack almost immediately. Literally one or two minutes after it had posted, he sent me a message. We spoke on the phone and he was very professional and polite. He agreed to go take a look at our house right away and send us a bid. When Brian says he will contact you, he does. He often gets written estimates to us the same day we discuss a project. If you aren’t home, he will send you picture updates on his work. He is professional, friendly, and is very reasonably priced. It’s a pleasure to have him working for us and we couldn’t be happier that we hired him. A list of things Brian has done for us: *Removed old carpet, Installed Pergo laminate throughout house *Kitchen cabinet modifications to fit new appliances *Removed closet, put up drywall and finished/painted *Replaced drywall, framing, insulation, siding, trim, etc., in a wall that was wet and ruined from a leak in the roof *Refinished deck, bringing it up to code, adding a gate; replacing stairs in yard *Is currently remodeling our bathroom *Will soon repair the post and beams under the house I would highly recommend Brian for any work you are thinking of having done. It’s a pleasure to have him around and his work is top notch!

It is so hard to find a good contractor these days...don’t look any further than Rick Sutter Builders. I have used them for a variety of projects, from roofing all the way to bathroom remodels. They are trustworthy, easy to work with, punctual and always do the job right the first time. I don’t make a lot of recommendations on services, but I will recommend Rick Sutter Builders.

Mark is very meticulous and holds himself to very high standards in his work. During his time in our home, he was respectful of and careful in our home environment, approachable, and friendly while working quietly and diligently. He communicated and collaborated with us when issues arose for the most satisfactory solution and results. Mark/Blue Ridge Tile completed a large floor that joined an area previously tiled by another contractor, with seamless results. He also did a beautiful job creating a travertine kitchen back splash which we are very pleased with.

    We have been thrilled with Mike O' Toole as our contractor. We had a number of people come to see the job, but they wouldn't show up to do the work. Mike shows up when he says he will. He is conscientious about cleaning up after himself. When surprises arise as they always will when you start work on a 75-year old house, he points it out and gives options on how to fix it. We have been very happy with the great service and workmanship.

    I had the very good fortune of meeting/hiring Rick and Anita as they launched their business. I had a punch list a mile long starting with rebuilding two outdoor staircases and adding handrails, remodeling two bathrooms, replacing baseboards, and adding two mantles. No other contractor I requested estimates from were interested in completing the entire list but fortunately they did! Anita is an experienced business manager and Rick is a highly skilled woodworker (who should be making high end furniture!). Together they form a reliable, hard-working, honest, respectful, and conscientious team. I would hire them again in a second and I highly recommend them.

    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.
