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.

Fred made lots of repairs for us during the process of selling our home. He was more than happy to work with me remotely since I was out of state. His communication was excellent, and he arrived promptly when he said he would. He sent pictures of all the repairs that he made, which was extremely helpful! I would highly recommend him for any home repairs.

Sean was very easy to contact and even though I am located in Maryland and he is in Virginia Beach, we were able to arrange a job that he did in a very timely and professional manner. We are totally thrilled with the end result, as well as how quickly he was able to get the job done. He even cleaned up all debris from the job, which has not been the case with other services we have used. I highly recommend Beach Home Improvements and will be using them for future projects around the house.

Cleaver Construction constructed a handrail for my front steps at the request of my insurance company. I did not think a handrail would look good at all because I own a historic victorian home, but I was pleasantly surprised with the finished product. David constructed the handrail out of wood and installed it the next day. The handrail is sturdy and visually appealing. I would hire him again.

When I needed to have a painted floor sanded, I chose to have the job done by Mr. Bordeaux because he was prompt in responding to my request for an estimate, thorough in his communications, and competitive in his price. He came when promised and got the job done quickly to my complete satisfaction. I would consider him first for future, more involved home improvement/remodeling projects.

Don is GREAT to work with! He's the BEST in the business! Not only has he done excellent, professional work for me personally but also for so many of my clients! If I have clients wanting to sell their home and need some minor or more extensive repairs or upgrades.....I don't hesitate to refer Don. They LOVE him and are always pleased with work! I just got a call from one of my past clients that I have had 6 real estate transactions (buying and selling) with thanking me for referring Don. Her sunroom addition is "SOOO BEAUTIFUL!!" He's definitely your GUY!! Call me if I can be of service to you! Judy Reed,RE/MAX Allegiance 757-287-2717

I place turf in my backyard and it came out awesome. Jerry and his workers worked with us to make sure we were satisfied with the whole yard. They used quality product and kept a timeline for the job to be completed. I also have a dog and ALD made sure the turf was up to the standard and treated for him. They did a great job overall.

Chris was great! He is honest, fair, trustworthy and very adamant about making sure you are satisfied with the quality of his work every step of the way. He did an absolutely amazing job on my kitchen; it's gorgeous and I love it! From the very beginning Chris and his wife Ashley were friendly, easy to talk to and professional all at the same. I also loved how they would make suggestions on what did and didn't look good and what may look better. My praise doesn't come easy and I can be a bit of a stickler when it comes to my home and who I "invite" in it but I would unequivocally recommend Kitchen Vision to anyone who is wanting a kitchen "makeover!"

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.
