I cannot say enough good thing about this man and the quality of his work. I have had so many contractors in the past who just want to take your money but do a half baked job. Brian is clean and courteous and really knows his stuff. The tile back splash job he did for me would stand up to any that you'd find in million dollar homes. Brian is a keeper.

Steve came behind other contractors who had botched everything they touched. He was willing to fix everything that was wrong no matter how bad it was. He stayed until the project was finished and never left, even after multiple delays and add-ons. Steve is a stand up guy and I would hire him again.

Wow. I cannot express how happy I am that I finally decided to go with Matt. Through all of my indecisions and changes he remained completely calm and professional and is truly a super great guy. He and his team went above and beyond what was expected, including extras and details that I would never have thought of. All of his guys are extremely professional and very nice. They show up when they say they will, work hard all day, communicate everything, and were simply a joy to work with. And to top all of this his quotes beat out 4 other contractors. I would recommend Matt to anyone in a second.

5 star all the way. Started and finished in his projected time. Professional job entire way. I have had electricians who did not support hang wire from joists. JJs plumbing attached pex appropriately, insulated the piping and even provided some education why things are done the way they are. Very informative. Their price was very reasonable. They are at the top of my rolodex for plumbers. Thanks guys

I posted a project request via Thumbtack on August 16, 2017 for an interior designer to help me design my new historical loft apartment. Ann Lamm Interiors happened to be the first "Pro," that responded to my request. She scheduled her "First Consultation," on the same day- August 16, 2017. Her First Consultation with me was $100.00. (Which I paid via cash.) During our first meeting Ann took measurements of my loft/came up with "design layout for the furniture to be placed, and she made suggestions regarding the floor condition. At the end of our first consultation, we agreed that I would pay $2500 dollars for laminate floors to be placed in the kitchen/dining/living rooms and hallway. I hired her because she had positive rewiews/self proclaimed "expert," with over 20 years of experiencevia Thumbtack, Angie's List, GoSmith.com, Houzz.com, and Facebook. At the beginning we both talked to the front office of my apartment and they made it perfectly clear that nothing was to be removed or added on the floors including the baseboards, and that the apartment had to be returned to its original state. No glue or paint was to be used. Ann told me on numerous occasions that no changes would be made. The project was supposed to last only a day, and it lasted more than a week. She made constant excuses as to why the jobs was not to be done. As a result the job was horrendous and permanently damaged my apartment. Not only did they remove the baseboards and try to glue them back on, they did not even put some of the baseboards back on. The contractors left many of their supplies including glue and paint in a trash bag in the corner. There are also several areas where no laminate wood was placed. Instead of having improved floors. I will have to pay additional money to hire a contractor in an attempt just to restore the baseboard back to it's original condition. This is the worst experience I have had dealing with any professional service online and I would not recommend Ann at all.

I hired E. Garcia through Thumbtack after another contractor was way behind schedule in fixing a bathroom at my rental property. He was quick in responding, called to let me know what the issue was (I live out of state), sent me photos and completed the job quickly for a reasonable rate. Will definitely call him in the future!

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.
