Tony came by to see what the issue was, he figured it out pretty quickly and had one of his contractors come back in a couple hours to fix it. Everything went well, they replaced the toilet valve and screws in the tank for about $110. My only complaint would be that I was quoted an arrival of 9-10, but didn't arrive until almost noon. Other than that everything went very well and I would use him again.

Jacob was not only a skilled professional, but highly personable and fast. You could tell he took great pride in his work, even for a small job that we needed done. He even snapped a picture of his work for his records. He even went out of his way to help some other contractors on site at the time. It's really great to see people who take pride in their work. We will gladly hire him again for our plumbing needs.

John's service was outstanding. He mounted a ceiling fan and he mounted my T.V. and hid all wires along with the cable box and DVD box. He was on time, professional and very knowledgeable. His rates were very competitive and I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a great contractor.

One Stop Renovation is the way to go. I would recommend Nilson and his team. We interviewed three contractors. All three were sound businesses and good initial meetings, however Nilson provided a competitive bid and we meshed well with his and his partner. One Stop Renovations and his subcontractors completed a remodel of our kitchen, two bathrooms, flooring and painting within 40 days. They were flexible to some changes we made to fixtures selections. I would recommend them to anyone. The following comments are things that I think made our process smothering. - we hauled debris to help offset costs - we checked in most every day to see progress - the house is near a home improvement store for those last minute needs - we handled material costs

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!

David was prompt, thorough, responsive and flexible. What else could you ask for in a contractor? The job was completed exactly as requested. He was flexible with a small time window we had available and was willing to work with us to fit our budget. Would use him again.

Shane came out and fixed my deck after another contractor left me high and dry. My wife loves the job that he did. He came out 3 days after he quoted it and finished the job the same day. Shane thanks for the great quality work.

Doug Roundy is an incredibly hardworking and nice guy who takes pride in his work and does a great job. My husband and I hired Roundy's after a cheaper find on OfferUp wend bad. Doug came in and got the job done quickly. We have had contractors come in and work shirtless, smoking and cursing but Doug did none of those things. Can't thank him enough for working efficiently while maintaining a high level of professionalism and craftsmanship.

One of the most overall experienced contractors I could have hired. There was not a job he was not qualified to do and he did to perfection. I now have a cedar closet instead of a long hallway. He installed exterior doors, did a complete deck makeover, and then transformed my home by expertly installing new hardwood floors on the entire first floor. I have found my contractor! Mr. Ammons is worth every dime and is a pleasure to have working in your home.

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.

Drew did very good tile work on my kitchen backsplash. In getting to know him, I found out he is quite a handyman, with various skills. He is a excellent carpenter, does good drywall work, and just about anything you need help with. I ended up hiring him to installing new quarter round on our flooring and patching some holes from leaks and he did excellent drywall work. Would use him again for future work! He's a nice, hard working guy too.

    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.
