Punctual, called because he could come to the job earlier than originally stated. We bought the supplies and my husband helped him with the project. Tim was very precise. He thought out the project well. We hired him to do a French drain instead of the fence. Made sure every thing was cleaned up when he was done.

Let me begin by saying that I'm an EXTREMELY discerning person when it comes to selecting someone to decorate, repair or renovate portions of my home. In addition, I work long hours and travel a good bit, so I don't have a lot of spare time to spend following up with people, ensuring they stay on track with a specific job, etc. This particular job involved repairing what I thought was pretty extensive drywall damage that popped up following foundation repair last winter; in addition, I wanted the living room and dining room painted. After having several contractors come by to view the job, I was getting increasingly frustrated; they were a terrible combination of condescending, rushed, dismissive and potentially dishonest (one guy told me I'd probably need to remove an entire wall. OK, sure.) When I contacted Demterius, he arranged to come view the job the same day and was very thorough in his evaluation. As it turned out, I didn't really have a drywall problem so much--I had a LOT of split and peeling paint with a few deeper cracks thrown in for good measure. he was very honest in his assessment and assured me that things weren't as dire as they appeared. Also, and perhaps most importantly, Demterius was courteous, friendly, polite and displayed a great sense of humor...that goes a long way with me. Once we settled on a price--which was UTTERLY REASONABLE--we scheduled the work, and we were on our way. Probably the single most impressive aspect of this experience is that the day Demetrius was supposed to start work, we were in the midst of a record-breaking cold snap that slowed down his previous job and caused it to run long. Rather than calling me to reschedule, he came to my house to personally apologize for the delay and reschedule for the very next morning. Nice! Once the work commenced, it was truly astounding; the repairs to the cracks have rendered them invisible (and some of them were LARGE), and the paint job has completely transformed this house into a much more contemporary, sophisticated home; it was built in the 80's, and there's quite a bit of ugliness we're exorcising. Demetrius has the steady hand of a surgeon and the eye of an artist--I can't recommend him strongly enough, and I'll definitely be using his services for the multiple projects on my agenda for the next year.

We remodel and rent/flip houses in the Austin area but had a job in Tyler for which we hired LB Painting. In our experience, finding good painters and drywall guys is always a challenge, so we were especially pleased to find Edgar. The 1930's remodel included lots of patches, 1/4" drywall over shiplap, rolled texture to match, tight schedule and other challenges, as well a some interior painting. Edgar did great work, was flexible, and worked hard to keep us on schedule. Would definitely hire again.

Stuart Knox did a great job with his recent project at my home. He replaced two gas hot water heaters in the attic of my 4 story townhome which was no easy feat. He also did repairs on my dual 9' front doors, put in new metal posts for my 8' fence, and did some power washing, general caulking & repair work to get my home back to optimum. Stuart was diligent and honest and I am definitely pleased with his quality of work. Will be calling him again when the need arises.

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.
