Tony was very responsive and his crew were quick as well as cleaned up after they were done. Tony was good at providing design ideas if you ask for his expertise. I was constantly traveling during this project and Tony was more than accommodating which was awesome! The only reason I cannot give a full five stars is some communication issues around pricing and the setting of expectations by the vendor. Tony's quote came in a few hundred dollars higher than some competing bids, when asked why it was explained that his is a "finished product" and that all supplies are included. After the first day I was handed a receipt for almost $90 in supplies and then again for $60 later in the project. Some additional take aways as this was my first home improvement project from Thumbtack as I would definitely have plans drawn up so both parties can agree on exactly what a "finished product" actually is. If this was done in the beginning the project would of also run much smoother. All in all I would recommend Tony.

John is amazing! The quality of his work is outstanding! John mounted and hung two flat screen TVs for us. One was hung on the stone facade above our fireplace, and the finished product looks spectacular. For the other TV we needed to have power and cable outlets added higher on the wall for the TV. John handled both of these for a fraction of what I would have paid an electrician. He went the extra mile with everything and had planned out the options for the best way to handle both mounts. In addition to the high quality of the work, his price was extremely fair. Best of all, John is just a super nice guy! We are going to have John come back and handle other projects for us. I would highly recommend John to anyone for their home improvement needs!

Mr Boiko installed tile in front of our backdoor. He was very responsive and the work was done within 48 hours of posting on Thumbtack. The floor looks great... a huge improvement. I would definitely recommend this company and plan on using them for any future tile projects.

Mike promised to arrive mid morning and actually came earlier. That was not a problem. He was courteous and went right to work. He had the right equipment for the job and took care to not damage my home. His price was fair and he finished quickly. I would recommend Mike for any of your exterior home services.

Verified review

We got several quotes and one stop renovations came in with most affordable price. We made a decision to proceed with a bathroom remodel, closet addition, and mud room remodel. We expressed our wants and our vision came true. I would say the communication between the led man and the workers got a little blurred at times. Luckily, I work for home some days and had to reiterate information. I will say if anything was not up to par they fixed it. The end result turned out great.

Tony was prompt, highly professional and very flexible with our last minute requests. Anyone who visits our home can tell that the privacy fence is extremely well-built and made of high quality materials. Tony is very knowledgeable and was always willing to answer any of our questions before, during and after the project. Tony's Fix-it-all was a great choice for us at a great price and I would highly recommend him to anyone for their home improvement projects.

My husband and I met with several contractors and were very impressed with Howard Bullen's knowledge and skills. Others said we need a new deck, but Howard was able to repair and now deck is safe and looks amazing. The money saved now allows us to do other home repairs. We trust Howard and look forward to working with Bullen & Sons soon!

I wanted my patio extended a couple feet to my fence. So i called a few people and decided to go with Julio concrete. He was very professional and straight forward on what needed to be done. I have two air conditioning units that the concrete had to go around. Also they had to pull up alot of weeds and grass. Then make a retaining wall. They started 8am in the morning and finished 5pm same day. They worked very hard while i was at work. When i came home everything was done. And i paid them after the work was done. I will definitely used these guys again.

Working with H&T has been such a seamless process. The open communication, professionalism, and detailed follow up are things we need to see more often in customer service these days, and they delivered. My interiors were painted according to some good recommendations from the owner. I’m ecstatic, because it’s like I’m walking into a brand new home. KaRon’s passion to get the job done right exceeded my expectations! Thank you.

When looking for a home repair partner, I wanted someone who was professional, trustworthy, responsive, and competitively priced. Baxter Safe Homes was all of those. Not to mention I engaged and hired him from Atlanta, GA for a project in Richmond, VA. We used technology to bridge the distance. Go ahead, look at the others, but highly recommend Baxter Safe Homes! 🏠 ✅

Rob Bethea is an exceptional human being and it is reflected in his work ethic. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met, which put me at ease having him and Leon in my home for a few weeks. Rob was courteous, professional and prompt. I had never worked with a contractor who was so diligent and whose smile was so contagious. He helped me create the bathroom of my dreams and it is truly spectacular. AND it was affordable. I HIGHLY recommend Five Star Bath Solutions of Richmond.

After years of wanting my kitchen remolded, I've searched high and low for an affordable company with quality work. That is exactly what I got from this company. The team was professional and respectful, listening to my every concern/need. My countertops, wall paintings, and floor layout came out exactly how I imagined with little to no time at all. The crew left my house feeling more like a home. Will definitely hire/recommend this company should I need any work done. Thanks again!

Not the case here!! He was a pleasure to work with and we were very satisfied with the job. Also he was very reasonable and professional. We will definitely use him again and have been recommending him to all our friends and family!

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.

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.

How do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.
