Adam was able to come out the day after I called. He figure out the issue and repaired it. He was very good about answering my calls (some contractors have trouble doing that). We greatly appreciate his taking his time and knowledge to make the proper repairs!

Chris is highly professional and works extremely hard. He is always on time and steadily works throughout the day, giving you everything you are paying for. He pays attention to detail as if he were carefully working in his own home. He is cheerful and easy to communicate with. I felt as if I had known him for years, yet it has only been days. I am totally impressed and happy with his installation of our wood floors. Every plank lines up perfectly with other floor planks, unlike other installs I've seen where the contractor said, the planks are suppose to be out of alignment to give the floor some character. I say if you want it done right and you can't do it yourself ... call Chris. Thanks Chris for a job well done and for giving our home a face lift we will all enjoy for many, many years. Chris installed the wood floors in our St. Cloud home.

We bought an older home in Donelson that needed some serious kitchen updating and repair from the 1960's construction. We had a vision on what it could look like. JAZ construction made it all come true. They are outstanding, professional contractors who look out for your satisfaction and pocketbook, every step of the way. We could not be happier in the process and outcome of our kitchen. I would never go anywhere else for remodeling needs. Jose and Fernando are All-Stars. These guys are the best!!

Mark did a fantastic job on my ceiling. There were multiple issues from stains to big holes but he took care of all of it to my complete satisfaction. Plus while he was here there were a few other nagging issues that he took care of. He's a great guy who does great work at very fair prices. I will call him back immediately when I have needs for dry wall or general home repair problems in the future.

Al was a pleasure to work with. His attention to detail was above and beyond expectations. Several contractors had turned down the job due to the complexity of staining the top slats, but Al got it done and it looks great! I couldn't be happier with the finished product.

Mr. Guyton and his team are a rare gift, and 5 stars are not enough!!! Seldom (if ever) have I met such an outstanding, honest and professional company, and you can't go wrong with hiring them!!! First, I'd like to say that this was an exceptional experience from beginning to end, and words cannot express my gratitude to Guyton Roofing! After a damaging storm, I had actually contacted several roofers, and Mr. Guyton replied right away. The interesting thing is that another company had committed to an appointment, and even though Mr. Guyton knew that, he was kind enough to contact me and assure me that if there were any problems at all with the other roofers showing up, he would be there to do whatever was necessary to secure my roof, do the repair and protect my home. As it turned out, the other roofers missed the appointment, and Dustin went out of his way to get to my house and repair what he could of my battered roof. After I contacted my insurance company, they absolutely commended Dustin's actions and his fast response, and because of the extent of the damage, my roof had to be completely replaced. I felt extremely secure in giving Guyton Roofing the job, and he and his team did not disappoint. They went out of their way to complete the job (even over the Christmas Holiday), and I have NEVER received such immediate, professional and reliable service! Guyton Roofing guided me through the technical process of replacing the roof; Mr. Guyton was completely forthright with pricing and the completion date of the project, and HE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND to ensure that the experience was as seamless as possible. To say that this is a man of integrity is an understatement!!! He cares about what he is doing to help others, and this guides his actions. One other note here is that as soon as the job was finished, the property cleanup was immediate and thorough. It was impossible to tell that I had my roof replaced just a few days prior to the cleanup! Outstanding! Genuine! Honest! Real! Great job by Guyton Roofing!!!

In an age of hiring crews of cheap labor, where "good enough" is just that, it's refreshing to find someone who is a true craftsman. Paul is what others here have stated, hard working, skilled and lightning fast. He is also someone who can not only hang the store bought cabinets but can build the cabinets from scratch. I am well pleased with the work he has done and highly recommend his services.

Tom is a kind, hardworking, thorough contractor. He helped us turn our once weird, shed roof porch into an amazing screened room that we will use throughout the year. He noticeably put a lot of thought and effort into making our porch better than I could have imagined. I would recommend Tom to anyone and hope to use him for future projects.

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.
