Hands down, best experience with a general contractor. Greg is responsive and communicates well. He tells you what his plans are in great detail and even sent me website links so I had a better understanding. His prices are very reasonable and what makes working with Greg even better is that he's just a really nice family man who serves his country and makes an honest living raising his 3 young boys. I highly recommend his services.

This is the first time I worked with Steel Penn and had an excellent experience with them. Fred (the owner) called me within a few hours of leaving him a message and he arrived when he said he would arrive to review the project. He proposed various options to repair the front porch, along with time and cost estimates. I had many questions about the project and Fred and his team answered all of my questions the same day I asked them. They were flexible and used text, email, and phone to communicate often and answer questions. When it came time for the job to start Fred's crew arrived on time, were super friendly, and finished the job in exactly the amount of time Fred had quoted. The construction crew was friendly, professional, answered questions, and kept the work site neat and tidy. When the job was completed they cleaned up the porch and front walkway area. The front porch came out better than I had envisioned and all along the way Fred also offered design ideas and suggestions based on his experience to make it look even better. In my experience it is very difficult to find good and reliable home contractors. Steel Penn is now going to be my "go to" compay for all my projects first. Completely exceeded my expectations and looking forward to working with Steel Penn on some other items. Highly Recommend!

Mr Dietz seems like a fine young family man. I regret not having asked more questions up front but also wish he, as the professional, would have been more forthcoming with details that I didn’t know to ask. For example, the transition strips used are made of pine and in need of staining and poly which is on me to do. I’ve never dealt with tile before and now realize it’s an expensive and a dirty job. I was under the impression that Stewart would be on the job in its entirety but that wasn’t the case. I’m satisfied with the job except for the fact that some of the tiles that were used already had chips in them. Also, his workers smoke , so as the world worst reformed smoker, having butts in my yard to pick up after was not fun. There were grout issues but they were corrected swiftly.

I had several contractors come to see my remodel job. The whole job consisted of a total room rip out and redo including drywall, electric, windows and a floor... but after getting several estimates, I was about to give up. TRM Construction gave me an estimate for the WHOLE job (other contractors only wanted to do just the drywall or just the floor or just the electric or just the windows and then hire sub-contactors for the other parts). The owner, Tim, was there for every step of the job from rip out to finish. The work was finished quickly and the quality is great. Plus, the total cost of the job was much less than having a different contractor (sub-contactors) for each individual step. Couldn't be happier, and I will hire TRM Construction again for my roof and kitchen remodel.

Great experience with these guys. We had a tight timeline to get into our new house and they came through on my deadline. Quality of work is excellent. After wasting time with another painter who did terrible work, we were desperate to find a quality contractor on short notice. These guys fixed the drywall and painted our living room perfectly. Our kitchen cabinets had a dark brown color which they painted them white with an antiqued finish. The cabinets look brand new. I can't thank them enough for helping us and doing such a great job on our home. They went above and beyond.

Mark laid out the plans explained to me what he would like to do and asked me if I had any questions. He gave me a price that I was happy with. Mark is a very professional contractor. I was very happy with the outcome of the completed work. I already showed his work to my friends,which I think Mark will get a lot of work. I would call Mark back for any other work.

We were able to work with Covel Studio in the design development and construction documentation of our projects in different locations, Not only the designs were very clean and smart, but the documentation was clear and very professional at less than half the cost of a local architect / designer. The drawings provided were good for permitting as well as construction estimating and the contractors love them!

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.
