We are very happy with Scotty. We had high water pressure, and we thought we did not have regulator. He came and dig it up and told me that we had one. He replaced the regulator and psi drops to 60. Will contact him again if we have another plumbing project.

I thought my garbage disposal was shot, but he showed up and fixed it within 10 minutes; saving me the cost of the new disposal I just purchased. He was responsive, on-time, and very knowledgeable. Kevin gave me tips on how to maintain the existing disposal and general house plumbing. I found our plumber!

Quality: The finish they did was great! Matched other rooms very well. Getting a good texture match was important to me. Professionalism: Team was polite and courteous. Responsiveness: Joel always responded via Thumbtack quickly. I always knew the status of the work and when he thought they would be finished. Value: His bid was not the cheapest nor the most expensive. I find you get what you pay for -- and for the quality of work, what he bid was very reasonable. Punctuality: In general, very punctual. Our first day the team was a little late (got hung up at the supply store), but they hustled over as fast as they could. Otherwise, they finished when I expected they would. Other remarks: Popcorn removal is a messy process -- this case was no exception. While they did an admirable job covering the floors, and trying to minimize the impact, dust still got everywhere - even in parts of the house where they weren't working. There was also texture splatter here and there, but they cleaned it up without complaint. Expect that this process will require you paint your walls in the rooms where it is done. The ceiling will look so much nicer it will make your walls look awful. If you plan to paint your walls, wait and do popcorn removal first. :D They also were game to take on a little extra item here and there (we negotiated $$ as we went). Saved me from having to hire separate contractors later -- so that was a bonus. Having worked with a lot of sub-contractors and home improvement projects, the work was done very well. The dust / mess I can clean-up (and frankly, it was expected). Solid A overall.

Mario may be one of the best contractors I've worked with. I took 3 quotes to repair water damage to my wall, including king stud supports... I wasn't happy either of the first two quotes, then contacted Mario. He showed up exactly when he said he would, quoted me a fair price for the job, then went straight to work! He was done with the entire job within the day, and it looks excellent! I've worked with a ton of contractors over the last 5 years, and there are few I would rate this highly. I will be calling Mario for pretty much everything I need from now on!

My husband stepped through our ceiling from the attic and we had a nice sized hole that needed repairing. Manuel was the only one to respond with a quote on Thumbtack and although I thought he was a bit pricey at the time, I agreed. Manuel arrived ON TIME and was very professional. I cannot stress enough how surprised I was given that contractors recently think the arrival time is a suggestion and not an agreement. I was immediately impressed. The second thing that impressed me was that Manuel and his assistant laid down thick butcher paper to protect my floors, and plastic to ensure that drywall dust didn't end up in other parts of the house. He also vacuumed and cleaned the floors when he left. The job took over 3 hours, so I no longer thought the original quote was expensive given the job and the impressive detail to quality. I would definitely hire him again.

I needed to have 16 linear ft of interior wall removed to open up the house. Additionally, there would be new drywall and repair requirements, flooring, and paint to finish the project. Jim was not the cheapest of the 3 quotes that were offered, but, as an experienced home builder for 30+ years, he impressed, was methodical and scientific in his project approach, is insured, and the pictures of the work that was completed in his portfolio were great. The project did have scope creep, and the cost adjustments were transparent and fair. The project came out to my satisfaction. Professional, meticulous, OCD (it’s great for a contractor), polite, and trustworthy; both individually and in his resourcing and supervision of subcontractors for the areas not under his direct scope (floor and paint). I would also like to add, that during this project, I unfortunately broke my tibia, being immobilized till now. Jim was courteous, ensured area safety, cleanliness, and even when I needed personal aid (an occasional run to the fast food joint) he did it. He cares about his work and his clients.

After this experience, I wouldn’t hire anyone else! Geronimo was a true professional, payed attention to detail, thorough, and even made sure his subcontractors did work that was up to his company’s high standards. He even took on the job of painting our house when his guy didn’t show up. Talk about service!! Also, he is very easy to work with and knows how to communicate to understand what the customer needs. All the work was done in a FLASH!! If you need A+ roofing or general contractor help in Austin/Round Rock, look no further!

Galactic did a great, professional job on our remodel. They installed new windows, framing, Sheetrock, exterior hardy replacement and painted the home inside and out. They even stepped in and fixed some poor work we had another contractor do. They are the real deal.

Bill started off as a good and professional contractor but he failed to respond last week. He didn’t finish the project we hired him to do. He was not responding to our calls or text. Very disappointed. Beware of hiring him for your next project. Not reliable.

Spartan was very quick to respond to my request and even came out on a Sunday to do a hydrostatic test required by my insurance company. In all he installed 2 sinks, 2 faucets, a dishwasher, disposal, replaced shut off valves and supply lines. Replaced a gas valve to turn on/off my gas stove/oven, cleaned and replaced a toilet tank and put in all new inerds. Charged me what I thought was a very reasonable price, especially for coming out on such short notice and on a weekend. Evaluated and gave me several options to replace a tub that is leaking. We will most definitely be hiring him to do the tub replacement as soon as my husband and I determine which route we want to take on that job. He and his apprentice, son, were very easy and nice to work with and communicate with. They did a beautiful and professional job and cleaned up the job site very nicely before leaving. Best plumbing experience!

Ross and Marc did a fantastic job on my tile project, I was growing more and more frustrated with dealing with one contractor after another and never getting a set schedule or price even after them coming to measure. Once I got Ross on the phone my whole project seemed to fall into place. UK Construction are the ones for you.

Mike was such a find! I’ve been struggling with horrible contractors throughout this entire remodel and Mike stepped in and knocked out some work I needed done as well as helped out with another miscellaneous part of the job at no cost. I HIGHLY recommend using him for any odd jobs you might have.

I had a sudden water leakage from my bathroom faucet, which destroyed the ceiling of the unit below. Also, it turned out that there has been a gradual water leakage which significantly damaged the wooden subfloor structure. I interviewed three contractors including Ken (MD Contracting). One of them could not do it because the scale of the job was beyond his capacity and another one wanted to do a $1500-demolition just to give me a precise estimate. My neighbor found him through his employee who had a very positive experience with Ken. Ken ended up doing my bathroom and the unit below and he gave us reasonable quotes. He is professional and responded to my questions promptly (This was important because I live in NY, and he worked on my investment property in Austin, TX). I strongly recommend Ken as a general contractor, and I will contact him again if I ever need home improvement projects.

A&J remodeled our entire kitchen and pantry. We've taken on a few projects in our home over the past few years and Alfonso is by far the best contractor that we've worked with. He was recommended to us by a home builder that we know and trust - he previously worked with Alfonso and had showed me pictures of the work he did. A&J remodeled our kitchen, including: new custom cabinets, new countertops and backsplash, new appliances / hardware / oven hood, and built custom pantry cabinets to accommodate an awkwardly spaced closet we have in the kitchen. We received 3 bids for the project and Alfonso was in line with the others - we decided to go with A&J based on the referral from our contact. From the beginning, Alfonso was very responsive and punctual. During the project, he and his crew were very clean and organized - during the demo days they picked up each day and covered all of our floors/belongings in plastic to protect from dust. We made a few adjustments to our plan during the project which he was able to accommodate, and he provided great ideas to help us with some of our decision making (e.g., how to set up the marble backsplash around the new oven hood). The few minor things we asked him to fix following the project (a cabinet handle was slightly off, our dishwasher wasn't completely attached), he came over immediately to adjust. We would 100% recommend Alfonso for any work to your home.

Working with them was great and easy! We remodeled the whole living room, kitchen and master bathroom at a much lower price than other contractors. We are very happy with the result! They repainted the whole kitchen, added the statuary white marble countertops, changed appliances, added bamboo flooring throughout the whole living room. The entire master bathroom was tiled with marble, lights were added, mirrors, sinks, cabinets were repainted, we ordered a new tub and a shower - all was installed by the crew. It was a great experience.

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.
