Mr. Ansel delivers what he promises. His quotes are very fair and the quality of work he did repairing the subflooring and laying the new floor was outstanding. I have several other projects that I am hiring him to complete as well. I highly recommend this contractor!

I would like to give a shout out to my Thanksgiving savior Tony Ramsey. When my well got run over by a vehicle and Progressive didn't understand the importance of water, Tony and his team did. I inquired online the night it happened. The next day I had his phone number and was able to contact him via voice and texting. Even though I saved the wrong number and did not give him the information I promised the next morning when I didn't see him I was able to call him. I sent him my address and he was at my house with an estimate with in 30 min the day before thanksgiving. With in an hour he had his crew digging out my well. With in 4 hours we had water!!!!!! The job was completed. He even followed up 2 days later and asked me if everything was working alright. THIS IS THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD WITH A CONTRACTOR IN MY HOME. If every company had the integrity Tony has for his company and his name the world would be a better place! Thank you again for making our holiday and understanding the importance of our situation. You will always be the first caller on my list. Sincerely Cassie Maddox Ware

This contractor is top-notch and honest! Mr. Bobby Stephens has about 35 years of experience as a roofer. He took a look at my almost 20-year-old roof, which others said would soon need replacement, and said I had a good 5 to 7 years left in it with just a few simple repairs. Given what others have told me and my lack of knowledge regarding roofing, if he had told me I needed a new roof I probably would have been willing to have him replace it now. But he has honor and integrity. That saved me and my family a lot of money. He also does painting and tree work, among other things. I am very glad I met Bobby, and if there had been a way to give him six stars I would’ve done so!

    Adam Hale did a kitchen remodel for us. Work included removing cabinets, appliances and laminate flooring from the old kitchen and installing new cabinets (supplied by Woodmark Cabinets via Home Depot), appliances and new tile flooring and backsplash. His work was very good and he took great care to minimize dust and debris in the rest of the house. (My wife was VERY impressed and pleased with that!) He communicated well about the schedule and made it easy for us to plan accordingly. He is obviously very experienced and when confronted with the inevitable curve balls that come up on any project, he knew exactly what to do. We discovered our floor was sagging by almost 2” in one corner, and he handled it efficiently without any impact to the overall construction schedule. I can recommend his work without reservation. As a matter of fact, he is on the short list of contractors when we get ready to remodel our master bath!

      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.
