I'm very pleased to have met Mike. Mike arrived promptly and prior to beginning the project explained, in detail, the steps he would be taking to complete the project. Mike's professionalism and knowledge was on display as he answered all questions I had regarding the project. In addition, he also answered general questions I had about other projects I'll be conducting in the near future. He was honest and personable. From a professional perspective, Mike's attention to detail was excellent. Throughout the project and upon completion, Mike was a pleasure to be around and talk to.

My roof suffered some hail damage last year and after filing a claim with my insurance company, I started searching for reputable roofers/general contractors. I reached out with my inquiry on Thumbtack and Matt Snow was one of 5 contractors that reached out to me promptly. Of the contractors I met with, Matt quickly made it to the top of my list. His courteousness, professionalism and reasonable estimate gave me just the confidence I needed to make my decision on which contractor to work with. Not knowing much of anything about roofing, it was a bit daunting to choose a contractor in the first place but Matt kept things simple. Not only did he provide a free inspection/estimate but sat down with me and reviewed the insurance claim, answering any questions/concerns I had. He also walked me through anything I didn't understand about the claim and at no time made me feel obligated to his business. The deadline for my claim was just a few weeks away and I was very concerned about the amount of work and time it would take for my roof to be completed and for my claim deadline to be met. Matt understood my sense of urgency and communicated his availability to me as well as providing me an accurate detail of how long it would take for the work to be completed. On the day of the job, his fellow contractors (he works with a team of two others) showed up promptly at 7:30 a.m. and started the work. I dealt with Matt directly, from start to finish of the project, and I appreciated there being no confusion or need to repeat myself to anyone else. I was charged for the roof after work on it had been started and Matt checked in a couple times throughout the day (it was a one day job) to keep me posted. Matt and his team are very reliable in my experience and wholly professional. Professionalism with courtesy go a long way in my book and Matt definitely defines that. This is an honest, transparent (reasonable rates and itemized invoice) and hard-working business that definitely wants to earn their customer's loyalty as much as their monetary business. My roof was a small job that didn't require a lot of hands but Matt and his team of two worked around the clock and delivered. I could hear them on the roof for the duration of the work and have no doubt as to how dedicated they are to getting the job done and done well! I also got the impression that no job is too big or too small to have Matt's full attention and dedication. Matt will work with your time, budget, claim and concerns. I highly recommend City Wide General Contracting and can't say enough great things about Matt and his team. This is a lengthy review but I wanted to cover all the bases of what I look for when hiring an individual/business. I am a first time homeowner and had no personal/direct experience with property damage and insurance claims prior to this. Matt put my mind at ease and made this process a bit more pain-free. I hope this review will be very helpful to anyone who is like me and wants to ease some of the stress that goes along with seeking reliable, reputable and courteous businesses. If you need roof repair or any General Contracting work, definitely consult with Matt Snow and City Wide General Contracting.

I'm an ex-contractor (very picky), the couple of times I've hired trades to help me with some of my home projects I've always ended regretting it. Decided to take a chance on Willy (Wilfredo), so I hired him to stain 240 ln. ft. of fence. The guy surprised me! Punctual, clean,detailed...a complete professional! And his quote more then fair. Hope to be working with him again real soon.

Mike is awesome! His quality of work is unsurpassed. He installed laminate flooring on my second floor and I could not be happier with how great it looks. I would recommend him to everyone and have already given his number out to friends. Thank you Mike so much for the time you put in and for making my home beautiful. Mike takes the time to talk to you and fully explain the process so that you don't feel you're getting taken advantage of like other contractors make you feel.

My project is about 85% complete, but I didn't want to hesitate writing my review about my experience so far with CJ and Carsa Construction. From the beginning, every person I have worked with has been thorough, responsive, and timely (whether it be CJ or his partners). As a general contractor, CJ excels in his ability to proactive communicate and respond to every area of detail--it is a quality hard to find in my experience having remodeling projects completed in the past. Even further, his entire team has embodied the utmost level of professionalism, care, and attention to my home--every night they have ensured they clean up after the day's work, and they are proactively thoughtful throughout the project to communicate openly and transparently with me on every level to ensure I am made aware of any items of discussion immediately (which is part of the process when you remodel, as you find things along the way). In a short period of time, I have grown to trust his team implicitly--they arrive promptly, they are courteous that I work at home, they are completely respectful of the most simple things (like asking me if it's Ok to eat lunch inside on a cold day), and I trust leaving them in my home when I am not here. Being impressed puts it very lightly with this team, and I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every person on the team. While still a few odds / ends to complete, I came home this evening to find that the team had literally cleaned almost every inch of my bathroom (after the remodel), and it was obviously they even started dusting off some of my bedroom furniture (that had understood dust created from the work). This team is remarkable. Communication, Communication, and Communication--they obviously understand and respect it, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone needing a quality, trustworthy, and honest team for your major home projects.

I'm still waiting on this professional to finish the job. He had a personal matter come up taking him away from Dallas but has been unable to find someone else to finish the job for him. Half of the job has already been paid for but it's been over 2 weeks without any progress. Will change my review to 4 stars if the project is done in the next two days - otherwise I would not recommend hiring this contractor.

My husband and I are very pleased with the work that Chong and his workers completed today. Not only did he give the best quote we could not ask for a more professional contractor! From the day he showed up to give an estimate till the day the project was complete he was on time every morning and worked through the day with his team. His workers were very polite and made sure everything was picked up the last day. I highly recommend Chong and already asked him to come back to do more work.

I called Gary since he was reasonably priced per hour and I just needed a quick professionals opinion since I thought I knew what was wrong. Gary confirmed my suspicions of a slab leak. Gave me a fair estimate and told me he could even do the work on a weekend at the same price. (Not common for most plumbers or contractors) He showed up promptly and punctually both days. Photo documented everything incase there was a dispute from my insurance company and kept me in the loop on all repairs and even took care of some minor plumbing issues he found while doing the repair at no extra cost. Once I had a hole in my kitchen and the pipe repaired I conveyed my dismay of having to find a tile guy next to repair the floor. Gary told me he does floors also. He added that into a new estimate and guess what it was even better priced than I could have hoped. His work by the way is nothing short of stellar. I've had tile done several times and he does it the right way. No short cuts and not rushed. He even met his deadline of having to be done over the weekend. I can honestly say I can't be any happier with the service I received from Gary. He was so easy to work with and did everything as I hoped. I will definitely be using him again for any home repairs I need.

Let me 1st start off by saying my wife and I just moved to the Keller area, from Chicago recently.. Thumbtack is new to us, so we were both really worried about hiring a contractor that we weren't familiar with.. ( from prior experiences )... We were very fortunate to have theo, from clean cut painting come and give us an estimate.. ( he didn't just come , look at the work, and give us a price ), he systematically did a breakdown of all the work that we could expect completed, and in a very methodical and professional manner... His crew was very punctual, clean, and detail oriented... ( but most importantly, they were very courteous and polite with my wife and children ).. Will DEFINITELY hire again.... Thank-you guys so much for all your hard work...

Fernando removed and braced a load bearing wall in my home, tiled kitchen floor, installed new drywall, repaired/textured ceiling, added recessed lighting, etc. Fernando takes pride in his work. He is professional, efficient, clean, and capable of any type of construction job. I haven't been this impressed with a contractor in a very long time and plan to use him for future projects.

I’m very satisfied! Indalesio came as soon as I gave him my address. I didn’t have everything he needed to install my backsplash, so I asked him if he would like to go with me to the store and he immediately agreed, which was very helpful, since he knows the best what he needed. He gave me great advice, helped me choose all the right materials and as soon we came back he installed my backsplash in just couple of hours. He was very professional, clean and organized and charged me a very fair price! Can’t wait to hire him for further projects! Job we’ll done!!!

Carlos of Double C Services is a wonderful human being. I contacted a total of 6 restoration companies when my home got flooded. Of all of them he was the most detailed in terms of what services he will be performing and what other services i should be contacting to fully respore my home. His price was also the best and he came with the most equipments to get the job done. While others said it will take nothing more than 3 days, he said it will take 5 days. During the drying process another pipe broke flooding another part of the house that wasnt affected before. Carlos offered to assist in drying the new place free of charge and ended up leaving his equipment for over a week to make sure that the house was completely dry. Afterwards, he washed all the rugs of the affected areas free of charge! Now if that is not service i dont know what is......thank you Carlos!!

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.

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 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.

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.
