I needed a repair/maintenance type job done on the exterior of my house, and Ruben not only gave me a great price and did great work, but also fit me into his schedule two days earlier than the date we had originally planned. He'll be the first person I call the next time I need a home-related project or repair done.

I can only say… working with JW Construction is/was exceptionally AWESOME. Jarett made it very simple. He was friendly, courteous and discussed my home requirements as if it was his own. I researched several companies and chose JW Construction because of Jarrett’s friendliness, respectfulness and knowledge of the industry. The experience with JW Construction was an extraordinary success for my roof replacement; and I’m totally happy with the price, workmanship, and timing to complete the project. Mr. Wright is abundantly friendly, respectful, and prompt and delivered on time and the completed project is worth bragging about. Jarett is a super trustworthy guy and extremely genuine – he loves what he does and is passionate (beyond belief) about construction and that comes through in everything he did for me throughout the whole job process. You can’t go wrong with JW Construction.

We had quite a large home renovation and addition project. Randy was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the project & helpful in keeping us on track with our budget. He was at the worksite every day either working or overseeing other trades & keeping the project moving forward. The end product is amazing. We now have a very functional & gorgeous home in every way we ever imagined it could be. We have and will continue to refer friends and family to this company for their home improvement needs.

I hired Dearman Remodeling a few months ago to update windows, doors, countertops, texture and paint my home. They did an AMAZING job... Not only was the price good but they were able to start the job 3 days after I approved the estimate. They were always polite, punctual, and kept everything clean. The job was done exactly on time. I will highly recommend Dearman Remodeling to anyone. Thank you, thank you and THANK YOU!!!‎

I would highly recommend Orlando for any kind of work you need done. I had extensive water damage in my guest bath, including the sub flooring. Orlando responded the day I called and, after seeing the work that needed to be done, went with me to Home Depot and Lowe’s to get everything we needed. He started the demo work that same day. The finished results are beautiful. He was very professional and answered all of my questions and concerns. Not only will I use him again, but I already had him measure for new flooring in other parts of my house.

Two pergolas, front steps, and back decking with two levels. Very well constructed. Staff was very courteous and respected my property. Provided upfront contract of work to be done and finished within expected timeline. Only recommendation would be to have a more detailed sketch of what the finished product would look like. However, Brandon was flexible to work with us during the construction to modify along the way and still stay within budget. Overall very pleased with the entire experience.

Dear Mr. Stinger with Elevation Home Designs, I want to thank you and everyone at Elevation Home Designs for the excellent work you did on my house remodel. This was my first remodel, EVER, and you totally exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I hired you, Mr. Stinger, I was at ease and appreciated your input and knowledge from a construction standpoint. This remodel required taking down interior walls, installing plumbing, remodeling bathrooms, putting in new doors, painting and texturing, new flooring and creating a nice fenced in area off my back porch. You were very quick to give me a bid that was within my budget, and more importantly the entire remodel was complete in under 3 months. Hiring you, Mr. Stinger, was absolutely the right decision. Each contractor that you selected to represent Elevation Home Designs, was professional and efficient. They were on time, completed each phase of the job in a timely manner, and more importantly cleaned up daily! I want to thank you, personally, Mr. Stringer, for your idea of creating a custom island in my kitchen. I am so grateful that you suggested taking down an interior wall between the den and kitchen to give me so much more space. I am also happy with the recessed lighting throughout the house. What a difference these lights make! In addition, I want to thank you for taking out all the old bathtubs and replacing them with custom built glass showers and a Jacuzzi tub! I get so many compliments on the tile and back splash as well as the updated vessel sinks. I have had many inquiries on my remodel and do not hesitate to recommend you in my community. You have truly increased the value of my home! Most importantly, I highly recommend you for the follow through and customer service when the job is complete. You are always readily available for any type of touch up I may have, regardless of how big or small the job may be. Sincerely, Terri Van Gorp

    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.

    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.

    How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

    Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

    • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
    • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
      • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
    • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
    • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
    • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.
