T&C did a complete cleaning of my home. Overall a very good job. The followed my instructions almost perfectly. It was my first time using them and with a little more instruction, I'd call back again. I was disappointed that my ceramic glass top stove was left untouched and they clearly missed mopping underneath some furniture and behind doors, which, for this customer, is important.

I cannot say enough good things about thks company. Straight forward, honest, good folks that undsrstood what I needed and the timeline that I was wanting to follow. Everything happened exactly as it was planned and I was sent progress photos through out the project with explanations. Quote beat four other competitors by over $500. Owner even explained different aspects of roofing and what potential issues I could experience in the future and how the warranty would protect me. Unmatched customer service and pride in their work. Hands down best experience I have had with home repairs in over 10 years!

I am doing a historic renovation of a slave quarters downtown on Society Street. I hired Shawn to renovate the master bathroom which is divided into two separate locations because of its lay out, as well as set some natural stone and finish concrete in front of the four fireplaces. I have to say that Shawn is a extremely well-rounded in his skill set and his experience shows not only in the work he does, but the answers he provided were "spot on" for every question that I asked. However, what was particularly attractive to me was the fact that I only had to deal with one person, as opposed to several different people comming and going in and out of my home. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my bathroom and would highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking to getting what they are paying for. He provides a superior finished product, has the ability to communicate on an educated level, keeps a schedule (proving to be very dependable), and compared to others is very fair priced.

I highly recommend Scot for any drywall/paint work you may need. I had delt with 4 prior contractors, who either came out to my uncle's house or asked me for pics to review because "they could tell by the pics what the estimate would be," and NONE OF THEM BOTHERED TO CALL OR EMAIL BACK TO SAY YES OR NO! I had almost given up when I tried this site and Scot reached out to me quickly, ready to go the home, and called right back with estimates on repair of two ceilings with holes due to water damage in the old family home my recently passed father and his surviving brother grew up in. Scot was personable, knowledgeable, efficient, and reasonably priced. He did exactly as he stated he would and for the quoted price AND the quoted time. We will definitely be using him again if needed, and possibly on our own home. It still pays to do right by people and treat each other kindly. To those other "Top 10 contractors" I would highly disagree with that list and remove three of them who left me hanging without a word. God worked it out in the end because MANNERS WILL ALWAYS TAKE YOU WHERE MONEY WON'T!

I estimated my painting job to four companies and decided on Tri Square because they explained the entire job to me in detail with specific processes and pricing. His team showed up first thing in the morning and turned a two day job into a day and a half by working hard while still inspecting the details. The quality of the work was amazing and I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a painting company. His company also does other work and he is now my contractor of choice for the next home improvement project I have.

I was skeptical about using Thumbtack to find someone to make a repair in my home. But I heard from Ralph right away and he took the time to walk through with me what information he would need to repair my dryer unit. He sent someone out to fix the part the very next day after we spoke. Melvin showed up on time, was professional, courteous and even discussed with me how I could take better care of my dryer unit so it will "live longer". I highly recommend Carolina Appliance Repair! They've got customer service figured out!

THIS GUY GETS THE JOB DONE!!! Not only was John cordial, honest and hardworking, but he was clean! At the end of each day, my home looked as it did before he came in to work on the bathroom renovation. John tiled the floor, drywalled, painted and did numerous other jobs pertaining to the renovation. My husband and I were very pleased and for the first time ever didn't get in a fight because of construction work in our home!

As one always leery of contractors – are they reliable, will they over-charge, will they even show-up – I was faced with a compelling need for one when my Mom’s house needed urgent repairs for rotted/deteriorated sections of floor joists that was causing a severe safety issues. I had to act fast and after a quick search , Trey King Construction repeatedly came up as the company to call. I was not disappointed. Acknowledging the criticality of the repairs, Mr. King made my job a priority and got a team on-site within 24 hours to access the scope and cost of the work. His repair team was at my house within 48 hours after my initial call. As work progressed on the 80 year old house more problems surfaced. My frantic phone calls for solutions were quickly answered. He was able to able to pull together disparate trades to include plumbing and HVAC and expertly coordinated their efforts to keep the primary job on time and on budget. His coordination and supervision with such a complex and involved effort was masterful. King Construction provided: Knowledgeable, prompt, and reliable repair teams service outside the scope of the original work quality workmanship timely response to every phone call and email He's a straight-shooter solid solutions personal involvement on-site, daily follow-up and end of work quality assessment King Construction is on my speed dial for any further home repair needs and I give my highest recommendation.

We had to remodel to bring in our aging parents to our home, one of which had a stroke and needed special accommodations. I highly recommend this company. They delivered what they promised and within the timeline they originally quoted to us! All the employees were skilled and worked diligently. They also gave timely input/communication about progress. They listened to what we wanted and made great suggestions. Very happy!

    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.

    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.

    How do I remodel my bathroom?

    Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

    The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.
