Tony is great!! I've already recommended him to several friends and family members. He is very personable, fair and goes the extra mile to get the job done asap. He searched the internet for me to find the least expensive replace parts needed for my heater to save me money. He rearranged his schedule to accommodate me when my replacement parts were delivered to my home. Going forward, I would not call or trust anyone else to do work on my home. Thanks again Tony. Much appreciated!!!

We had our entire home painted by A.D.A.D. Bill was extremely responsive and professional from the time we reached out for a quote until the point of project completion. Eddie and his crew were courteous, professional, and neat. They went above and beyond to make the process as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend their services and will utilize them again for other home improvement projects!

Glenn and his crew took down two layers of wall paper, patched the walls, painted our hallway/stairway and replaced a closet door. We had avoided this job for many years because we felt it the difficulty of the job (high ceilings, multilayered wallpaper, lots of wall repair) would make the project just too expensive. Glenn provided a realistic estimate, quick time frame and beautiful work. The walls and door are gorgeous and only took two days. We were so pleased with the results. Glenn's knowledge and professionalism were so impressive we have already hired him to refinished the stairs! We will be using his services for many projects to come. We highly recommend having Glenn work in your home.

Kevin has a keen attention to detail and works intelligently through all challenges encountered. We were very satisfied with the outcome and highly recommend Kevin for your future needs.

Job was to repair front stoop with eroded concrete all over surface yet still structurally sound. Their solution made the whole stoop look new without being to costly and looking much sturdier than home improvement store parge solutions. Very personable and got the job done in the timeframe I needed.

Emilio showed up when he said he would, and completed the job with great attention to detail. He set some large format porcelain tile for me and covered over 300 sq ft. of space in addition to repairing some poor tile work that had previously existed. Completed the job on time and stuck to his original quote. Will be using Padilla home improvement again for other projects.

Alex installed molding in our newly finished basement and we couldn’t be more happy with the job he did. He was able to fit our job in the day after I requested a quote. He arrived on time and was very professional and knowledgeable about everything. His work is impeccable. He cleaned up all debris and left our basement cleaner than when he got there. Highly recommend him! I will be using him again in the future for any home projects we may have.

We hired Joe to install casing around two doorways and are very pleased with our decision and his work. He promptly responded to all communication and was very professional. The job took a little longer than expected to complete but this was only because he took the extra time to do the job right and secure additional materials that enhanced the final result. The casings look great and really make a difference in the look of the rooms. We plan to hire him again for future projects, including the production and installation of barn doors. We definitely recommend him to anyone else seeking home improvement.

I had reached out for an estimate pertaining to our bathroom. I sent my request at 5am in the morning and by 7 am Alex had already reached out to me. By 8am I had an appointment booked for me. Alex was easy going, a great listener and respectful of my home. I do not like switching GC’s and Alex has solidified his position as my GC.

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.

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.

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
    • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.
