There is no need for you to call anyone else! Najera and his team are the people you want to work with. We originally posted for help with painting in our house, but we were also looking separately for a contractor to remove a wall between two bedrooms, repair the molding and the floor, and enclose one side of a jack and jill bathroom. Najera responded to me right away and continued this level of communication throughout our work together. When we learned Najera and his team also help with this type of work, we decided to work with him for everything. And we are so glad we did!! He and his team were amazing. They are fast, professional, extremely skilled, and seamless in all the work they do. His prices were HALF what the contractors quoted us for the construction. Najera and his team did such an incredible job with the construction that it appears as if the new room was always that way. He and his team painted our entire house, top to bottom, and their work is, simply put, the very best. When everything was finished, we even found another project for Najera and his team, which again was seamless, fast, and of the highest quality. Working with Najera is an absolute pleasure, and he has become like family to us. We will call him for everything we need from now on. Thank you for our beautiful home, Najera!

DJ is so personable, respectfully, honest, knowledgeable, and professional! I hired DJ to fix a botched bathroom vanity and shower remodel from a previous contractor. DJ' work far exceeded my expectation and his attention to detail really impressed me. I have sinced hired DJ for many projects in the home and have a running list of jobs to include painting, hanging drapery rods, deck remodel, putting down an attic floor, plumbing concerns, and changing it outdated fixtures...to name a few. Would I hire or recommend DJ ?? ABSOLUTELY!!!

Kenneth and his team enclosed an existing carport to a closed in garage, along with creating a dryer vent opening. Not only did he respond immediately to my request for a quote, he showed up at the time he stated for the review of what we needed. More than that, he did the job earlier than he had originally anticipated. What is really striking though is the team arrived on the date/time they said they would, performed the work in less than a week, cleaned up (!) after themselves, and did a very thorough job. To top this off, Kenneth called TO FIND OUT IF WE WERE HAPPY WITH THE WORK!! Who does this anymore?! When a couple small items were mentioned, he said no problem and they came the next business day and took care of it. I've been dealing with a firm in a different state that has been a vastly different, in a bad way, experience. Kenneth restored our faith that there are conscientious contractors out there still.

They saved my Thanksgiving. The other contractor I hired couldn't do the work on time. Kendall came in and gave a good estimate and did the work in an excellent manner. The owner (Joey) came by to inspect the work in progress and after it was finished. I will definitely use them for my other home improvement projects! jad

After 2 months worth of searching for someone to build a privacy fence around our new pool construction, we were delighted to find that 3in1 was prompt to answer our initial call, made thru Thumbtack. Russell, came to our property listened to our ideas and within a few hours presented us with an estimate for the job, unlike other contractors who took up to 2 weeks or never even responded. The estimate came in under our budget and beat the other 2 quotes that we did get. 3in 1 completed the job in rapid order and paid attention to the details of our fence project as it was somewhat of a custom build. I highly recommend these guys they are professional, courteous, and have a high degree of integrity.

Andy replaced my showerheads, shower handle, and replaced my water shutoff valve handles (that were broken and left there by another contractor). He is compassionate and helped carry something out for my dad while he was over. Andy is knowledgeable and has worked on various types of plumbing projects throughout his career and I would trust him with my plumbing needs.

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.

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.
