I've hired Ken to do multiple projects. From painting entire houses, diagnosing and fixing electrical problems, carpentry plumbing you name it Ken can get the job done. I've worked with dozens of contractors over the years and know a great one when I see one. Its hard to find to an honest person that does great work for affordable prices. Let me tell you I'm not the easiest person to please but Kens quality is outstanding and his knowledge is very extensive. He has saved me a lot of money by correctly trouble shooting mechanical issues and fixing problems the right way the first time. He is a great guy to work with and I would hire him without hesitation for any job. I'm not one that normally leaves reviews however in this case I felt it was important because quality contractors like Ken are so hard to find!

Tom did an excellent job. He showed up when he said he would (which is more than I can say for most contractors). I was out of town during the project, but we kept in touch by telephone and I was amazed at the finished product when I returned home. I could not be happier with his work and would highly recommend him.

Harris contractors came immediately when a tree fell on our house. They arrived removed the tree and covered the roof with a tarp to prevent any more damage. Mr. Harris helped with the talking to the insurance adjusters and made sure everything was covered. The team he has did everything from placing a roof, soffits to taking care of the inside. They placed sheetrock, painted and did what electrical work was needed. We were amazed how neat they were. We would recommend them to anyone and are going to ask them to do some more work for us in the future. Again he and his team are very efficient, knowledgeable and reasonable. You can not ask for a more reliable team. Thank you again for your service.

Bdm came to my home and did an outstanding job. We ran into a few quirks during the process of the Reno which is expected because remodeling is always flawless on paper but in the real world your window or wall maybe out of square or the contractor before this one cut a few corners without your knowledge. Mr Bare handled each situation with complete honesty and grace. I would recommend him for any job big or small! I will continue using their service in the future.

The best thing about Richard is that he came and stayed until the job was done. I've had 2 previous contractors over the past couple years that have fit me in here and there, they made a 2 mo project into a 2 year project. Richard was very respectful of my property, laid out tarps going into the house, cleaned up after himself. His work is quality. He's honest and professional. He listened to what I wanted done and did it. I will recommend him to friends and relatives.

As a REALTOR I have worked with KIMCO on a number of transactions. He is a competent, thorough professional who takes great pride in a job well done. He has a tendency to exceed expectations, which is a very good thing indeed. Because he is a licensed contractor, a licensed electrician, as well as a licensed pest person, he brings a great deal of expertise to the table and provides unparalled service in a cost-effective manner.

Bill Godfrey was hired to replace existing flooring with Trek flooring on a large outside deck. Bill approached the project with great competence and skill. Having been recommended by a custom contractor, Bill came with lots of experience. Bill was very reliable and his quality of work was excellent. We also had him fix some plumbing problems. Our experience with Bill was so good that we have other projects lined up for him to start soon!

Working with Adam and Hendrickson Contruction was a true pleasure, especially after all the problems we had trying to find someone to take on the job of adding our addition to our house. From the get go he was very upfront and honest about his time frame and his estimates; also taking the time to thoroughly go over the estimates and answering all our questions (we had plenty). He made the home building process stress free from the start of getting all permits to finishing out our house getting us ready to move in. Adam and his crew have amazing attention to detail and when/if a problem came up on design aspects he always had several options for us to review. We truly love the work he did to make our house amazing but it was also a pleasure working with and honest, reliable contractor. If I could give him 10 stars I would and I highly recommend him for any home project you have.

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.

    My wife Jolene and I are looking at building on a lot at The Farm at Bradshaw Lane in Candler. The lot number is 31. The physical address is 15 Copper Mill Court. I hope this will help the contractor with a clear idea of what we're looking for. Here's a link to the house plans. dongardner(dot)com/plan_details.aspx?pid=280 It's 2,136 square feet on the main floor and 405 square feet in the bonus room (which we may not finish during the construction process). We're shooting for $90-110 per square foot. The timeline we're racing is as follows. The accepted offer by the seller includes 74 days to close, and our lender needs 60 from the time we present the contract with the builder, the floorplan, and the contract for the land. We need to turn those three things into the bank by July 10. We have access to a plat for the neighborhood (we're lot 31), restrictions, and the septic perc permit. We're looking for a builder, and we would greatly appreciate a prompt response regarding your interest in the project and availability.
