Donovan is very good. What I like most about Donovan is that he always makes things right and isn't one of those contractors who tries to nickel and dime his clients. When my plumbers messed up and brought me a broken tub from Lowes, he drove to two different stores to return it for me and then pick up the new one. Bottom line, he tiled an entire bathroom for me and did a good enough job that we threw several other projects his way. I'm going to continue using Donovan and you should too.

Curtis showed up ready to work and was extremely professional and trustworthy. He did a fabulous job installing a backsplash in my kitchen and building screens for every window. He worked hard the entire day. I was impressed with the amount he got done and the quality of his work. I already have him lined up for a solid week's worth of work! Definitely recommend him for any contractor needs around the house.

Patrick redid our cabinets in the kitchen. Not only was he timely, courteous, and knowledgeable, he was very professional. This man is an artist when it comes to the home. He did things the right way, the first time. I'm not just saying this, he's the contractor you've dreamt about. He will be fair, he will be upfront, and he will be on time. Anything we do in our home will be done by him.

We initially hired David to do some remodeling work on our kitchen cabinets when were having some work done on our new house. We actually had several different contractors in doing different jobs. I ended up being disappointed with every one of them except for MD. I now wish that I had hired them for all of the work I had done on the place. In addition to the excellent cabinetry in our kitchen, they ended up flooring two rooms for me, painting two rooms and redoing my entryway. No matter how much more I asked them to fit into their schedules for us or how many times I had to ask them to change their schedules for us due to another contractor failing to either finish on time(sometimes weeks late!) or failing to start on time, I was met with assurances that they would get it done. Of the four separate contractors we hired, MD was the only one who started on time, finished and time, and didn't leave me feeling like I had made a giant mistake in placing my trust, money and house in their hands. There is no better value per dollar investment in my house than the work they performed. All of the future work that will be going into our new home will be done by MD.

Our experience with David has been nothing short of a job well done! He is very professional and really made us feel at ease with his ability to not only get the project underway and completed in a timely manner, he was also able to pick out the materials that we wanted just by listening to our needs as the client. One of the biggest compliments I must give to David, is his awesome communication with us; letting us know when and where we stood on the project. This is huge, as we are super busy and want to be able to trust our contractor to fulfill the needs of the project without any hand holding. He and his team were very diligent and went the extra mile in completing the work we needed done. His craftsmanship is nothing short of a true professional and the above and beyond steps he took to make the entire completed project really satisfied our vision for the overall project. We've hired David for other projects based off the results of this one. We look forward to seeing more successful projects in our future. Thank you David Potter and PHS Construction!

In the last 17 years I have Sold and Rented , more Homes than I can count ! Kevin Cooke has been the man who has remodeled , And repaired almost every home. All done correctly, and on time, and on Budget. I have never had any complaint. In fact, due to his work ethic and great quality, I myself have a hard time booking him, due to the amount of agents and my previous buyers , that call him to work for them again. NO, we are not related, however over the years , we have become good friends. Over my many years in business, the number of contractors that you can always count on fit on one hand. Need I say I highly recommend. David Homb Walzel Properties 281-844-8324 dhomb@outlook.com

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.
