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!

I was contact by Marcial from Medina Construction & Roofing and two other contractors within 10 minutes after I posted on Thumbtack that I needed a Reroof on my house, the next day he did an inspection on my roof and provided me with a detail estimate for the job and included reference from BBB and Thumbtack, plus a certificate of liability insurance. After reading some reviews and getting two other estimates, I decided to go with Medina Const. for the best price. The job was schedule whitin one week and the work was done in a full day and a half on the entire roof. Marcial is the "man" he is hands on with his crew, he actually is part of the crew, clean job from start to finish, no problem adding extra work for the terrace, and upgrading to 30 year shingle. I would definitely recommend Medina Const. for any roofing project.

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.

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!

If you need quality trim work done by a good honest carpenter then hire Ruben. I've dealt with a lot of contractors, good and bad, and Ruben was by far the best I've ever dealt with. He understood my vision for the kitchen remodel I was doing (and previously I had a couple of contractors come out and look at the job & never call me back!) and his work was beautiful & fast. You won't be disappointed!

We hired them to level our granite counter top. The countertop seam cracked after one month and the contractor would then not respond to any further communications when we asked for help getting it repaired. At this point, it is worst then when we first hired him.

Carlos was awesome. We wanted a wood panel accent wall built in the study. High quality work at a reasonable price. Not only was the work excellent, but Carlos was very courteous, respectful, and professional. He kept in contact with me, and let me know the status of the work being performed to prep the wood (with pictures), and let me know when he was on his way for the install the next day. As some of you may have experienced with some contractors, they aren't always the best communicators. Not a problem with Carlos. We are going to be having more work done to the house soon, and will be hiring Carlos to do it. He takes pride in his work, and sadly, that's becoming harder and harder to find these days.

We were looking for a roofer to make some minor repairs when we found Josh of Infinity. The roof repairs were done quickly and the price was more than fair. When we learned Infinity also did painting, we asked for an estimate for the exterior of our home. We solicited a LOT of painters and were extremely happy that we chose Infinity. His crew, led by Nefi, were timely, efficient and professional. No time was wasted at the job site and since we were on a tight schedule to complete the work this was very much appreciated. Both Josh and Nefi were friendly and knowledgeable. This was the best experience with a contractor that we have ever had. We highly recommend Infinity Roofing & Remodeling and only wish we had found them years ago.

Their design and choosing of the plants was outstanding that matched the location and accentuated the house. They allowed us to choose the plants with them at the nursery. They designed everything on paper first and then allowed us to make changes so we could see what it looked like before proceeding. They worked well with our other contractors and actually managed the whole project. Jeff was there supervising all activities and installation. Very refreshing. They met all their commitments and schedule and the follow-up was outstanding. Their work and design makes you say wow! Very personal service in working and coordinating with the owners. Would HIGHLY recommend them. We will use them again for our back yard project around our pool. Love their work!

Spencer Smartt is an outstanding contractor. He worked on several major remodel projects that transformed my living space. The first project was the kitchen. I was so pleased with the outcome that I subsequently hired him to remodel three bathrooms and for a series of smaller projects including window and door installations, improving stair banisters, and painting bedrooms. He is thorough in finding the best resources such as cabinetry, countertops and flooring. His pricing of jobs is fair, making remodeling affordable.

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.
