Joe paid close attention to detail and gave my bathroom a superb paint job. I have already shared his contact info with a couple of my friends looking for a handyman. I will 100% be hiring Joe again, for other projects and general handyman tasks. Thank you again, Joe!

The experience with 380 flooring was very professional. Frank came out for a consultation to quote us for wood flooring, stone fireplace and marble tile. We meet with many other contractors and felt confident in choosing 380 flooring to complete our project. We were undergoing a whole home renovation and had to push back our flooring installation and through the process Frank was very patient and understanding. On the day of installation his team showed up when they said they would. Their lead was Joel, which is extremely polite and experienced. Overall, we are very happy with our floors and fireplace and would recommend 380 flooring to friends and family. Thanks Guys!

Keith and his crew were wonderful. They were on time, very courteous and even fixed little cosmetic issues they notices while replacing the roof. They handled all the insurance communication post job for filing receipts for depreciation recovery, all I had to do was open the door. They even went and got paint and mixed it so I didn't have an unfinished repair. They replaced my roof and windows and did things I have never seen contractors do. They swept leaves by the front door, put the couch and curtains back (in the past I have had to clean up behind contractors and put furniture back). They were very nice and treated me, my kids and even my pets like family. If I ever need anything done in the future they will be my 1st phone call. I don't think anyone else could compare to the guys at B&K.

Jesus came out to update our developer office from the bright (and frankly ugly) green paint that it had. He replied promptly, checked the space, and scheduled a time all within 48hours of putting in the request online. He and his crew were back out within 2 days and knocked it out of the park! The space looks great and my dev team has never been happier! Super friendly, super fast, and great results! Plus they have general contract crews and cleaning crews. Really a one-stop-shop! Will definitely be using JD again!

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.

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.

Functional Conceptz (Brian and Aisha) were truly professional and have integrity running business for many years. We've shopped around, we received several estimates offers from small contractors to big bucks/chain-stores businesses, but we selected Functional Conceptz for many good reasons: They showed professionalism and understanding the project, provided prompt response, and the most important honesty. They saved us big bucks: I had already paid for the thin-set and they reminded us that we should return it since it was included in the contract, this is might not happen if honesty was not one important factor of their business performance. Their crew were on time from start to finish, working out a great job (see the photos). They moved the heavy furniture, appliances, fast, polite and they cleaned up after. Brian and Aisha at Functional Conceptz saved us money, time and returned quality at home and peace in mind. I would highly recommend them. One more thing, I checked on their business and personal background and records (I got bitten before), they are sharp clean and clear. I will call them for our next project. 360 photos: https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipN75uVg9xE70tjqzfBpEvaV_ScqhqG1D5PTZEVm https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipN4lkBjzxDtuRvVvGxNBefza6ERTG4QQfV3070n

Chris showed up as promised and suggested I did not actually need to di the job I hired him for. He said there was nothing to fix. Wow, when does a contractor actually give you an honest opinion like that especially when he loses income. I will be calling him for everything in the future. Thank you Chris!!

These guys do a great job! From the first day of measuring and helping you know exactly what to pick out for the look you want, to the thorough daily planning of what will happen and how many days it will take, we felt completely informed and were never left “waiting around” as so many contractors do to people these days. Our shower renovation turned out so beautiful and we are so pleased with the service we received. We highly recommend Brian and his team!

I am the General Manager of a Self Storage facility in Allen TX. Mine is a 'mature' business and thus the property requires occasional tweaking as in repairs or larger than usual up-keep projects. I am fortunate to have enlisted Richard Maytan of SpecTech to aid me in meeting some of these demands at least 3 years ago, and since then SpecTech has been my 'go-to' solution every time work is necessary and I have never had reason to regret Richard's efforts. I have been at times, both amazed at, and thankful for, the broad scope of his knowledge and abilities. Over time, I have had reason to become aware of his skills in carpentry & finish work, welding, metal framing, roofing, masonry & electrical matters just to name a few, as well as extensive abilities in all facets of treework & landscaping to include tree removal or stockade type fencing etc. His knowledge of 'plumbing' also 'saved the day' at my home when a SERIOUS plumbing emergency developed that probably would have been beyond the abilities of some of today's plumbers who only want to install new faucets and clean drain traps. In summary, probably the best way to say I recommend SpecTech / Mr. Maytan is to point out that I have his contact number on my speed dial for both my business and my home.

I recently decided to contract for a covering for my patio so the family can enjoy BBQ and relax outside year around. I searched the Internet for contractors and then requested bids from a handful. After talking with reps from several companies I settled on Cuttwood Construction. I enjoyed meeting Curtis Sharp and was most happy he shared my vision for style and quality. Cuttwood wasn’t the lowest or highest bidder, but I felt the best value and quality. I should note that other contractors wanted anywhere from 30 to 90 days to begin construction. Since it was already late May I wanted to have the project done before the 4th of July or it could wait until next year! Curtis was able to make it happen! The project was started and completed in six days! Since the project was in my backyard Curtis had one of his crew haul the lumber from the delivery point in my driveway to the building site immediately after delivery. David (with some assistance) actually performed the majority of the construction from framing to roofing and to the finish work. I was amazed at how fast they performed the demolition where the new cover joined my house, and then had the framing and roof sheathing all done the first day! I must note that David takes great pride in his workmanship—he is a real craftsman! The finished project included wiring and installation of a ceiling fan, and the addition looks just like it was original to construction of the house. The crew did an excellent job of cleaning up the site and removing debris upon completion. Curtis came to inspect the progress on a daily basis and sometimes multiple times as the project neared completion. He was responsive to my questions, suggestions, and concerns, and I am completely satisfied with the final product. I would hire Cuttwood for future projects with complete confidence.

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.
