I originally hired LD Home Improvement to completely remodel 2 bathrooms (1 master with tub and 1 guest with standing shower). Leonardo and his team did an absolutely excellent job! They are very self sufficient, they ask only necessary questions, work carefully and diligently, most days I was at work and left them keys to work in the house all on their own without a single worry. They have the patience and the care to do do the job the best way it can be done. Since then I have hired them to do multiple other projects around the house and have not been happier with results! I highly recommend LD Home Improvement for any and all house projects - I have certainly found my one and only contractor for life! Thanks, Leo, for all your hard work and dedication!

Working with Lisa and the crew from Transitions was a pleasure. Lisa was very flexible about how we would approach the project, in terms of who would purchase what. She worked with me on trying to save money--although I'll confess that I spent more than I'd planned, but that was me, not her. She went with me to look at tile and recommended vendors, because I'm a hands-on person and have done some of my own projects. Communication was clear and constant, which was very important for me. The guys on the crew were prompt, polite and they check with me on every step. They also did a pretty good job of cleaning up each day. If there were any issues that arose, they always discussed the matter with me before proceeding. I would recommend them without hesitation. Lisa also always checked in with me to make sure that I was pleased with the progress and work in general. They completed the project on time and it looks great!

Paul and his team did a great job cleaning up my badly overgrown mosquito infested backyard. Paul was very easy to work with and was always polite. Additionally, Paul did a tremendous job power washing the brick patio. Paul was the only contractor of 9 who provided estimates to follow up asking about the status of the job. Hire Paul and his team, they will get the job done at a fair price.

Mike has worked on two projects with me. While renovating my kitchen, my contractor recommended Mike when I decided that I wanted a live edge counter top on my island. I met with Mike and was impressed with his obvious skill as well as his aesthetic sense. He understood what I was trying to achieve and made suggestions while respecting my vision. I ended up adding a live edge shelf in another area of the kitchen for the microwave. Both pieces garnered many comments and compliments from friends and were eye-catching in the photos when I decided to sell the house. I asked Mike to work on two projects in my new house. I had a trestle table built by my great-grandfather – I estimated it to be between 80 and 100 years old and was made of two 13” x 52” planks. Mike refinished the planks, placed hinges between them and created new legs for the table, turning it into a drop leave table which now sits behind the sofa. It was wonderful to see new life breathed into an old piece. The house came with a furnace beneath a floor grate in the center of the house. I removed the furnace but wanted to retain the access to the crawl space. I was able to salvage some of the original wood flooring and asked Mike to create a “trap door” for the crawl space. He understood exactly what I wanted and after creating a template (well, let’s be honest – the cabinet maker created the template), I delivered the template, the pieces of floor wood and brass pull to Mike. Soon Mike delivered a trap door which exceeded my expectations – it’s a beautiful nod to the history of the house. I have found Mike to be easy to work with – he understands my vision quickly, asks questions for clarification and makes suggestions which enhance the project while respecting my concept. Mike seems to really love what he does – his finished products reflect his skill, his creativity and his love of wood and woodworking.

I was in need a good reliable contractor to do some bathroom updating (vanity, recessed medicine cabinet/mirror, and towel bars). I was lucky to meet Mikhail — he couldn’t have been more professional and did a beautiful job on the work. His quote was reasonable and he arrived early and got the job done promptly. We are thrilled with the new bathroom! A welcome bonus was Mikhail’s willingness to tackle another project for us, the removal of a rusted basketball goal from the driveway. He and his partner got it done fast and the results are perfect. I highly recommend D&M and can say confidently that I’ll be using them again myself. Thanks again, guys.

I Highly recommend A Step Above for any home improvement projects. When I started searching for contractors to assess the scope of work for my project, I was very particular about who I spoke with. There are a lot of people out there willing to help, but David really stood out from the crowd. He has the knowledge, skills and experience to get the job done, and is very willing to help. David is the type of person you want working on your home.

    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.
