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.

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.

The company's owners, Scott and Kelly are true professionals. They arrived at my home, on time and prepared to get any job done at a fair price. I hired them for landscaping and drainage. Scott and his crew did an excellent job, they showed up on time and work 2 1/2 full days to get the job done. Both my wife and I were completely satisfied and would recommend Woodland Outdoor to anyone who needs landscaping, drainage or any backyard work. We have since used them again, and we are again on there schedule for additional work. Scott and Kelly are the BEST.

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.

We purchased a new home and needed a full interior paint, as well as some shiplap/moulding installed. First of all, Rick is super easy going and a joy to work with. Always professional, always on time, and very flexible with our changes and additions we made to the project along the way, Rick accommodated our every request. He explained the how's and why's of each step of the project, and helped us make some decisions on some tricky spots. Even though we threw him some curveballs, he never once complained or griped about anything...he is so easy to work with...we cannot say the same for many contractors we have worked with in the past! The quality of work he produces is also top notch. We will hire Rick again in the future, and definitely recommend him to others!!!

A young man with a good school background. Very courteous and concerned about his customer.

I did not fully understand his pricing before hand. I thought he charged $45.00 an hour for the job but he stated that he told me it was $45.00 an hour with a minimum of 2 hours. So if he did only an hour worth of work he still would have charged $90.00 he said. So persons choosing this company thinking that they will save money should think about this. While the job I had him to do did not really take 2 hours to complete (i.e. install a bottom heating element inside an oven ( 15-20 minutes tops) and put hinges on a kitchen door cabinet, we did have to make a trip to Lowes to get the correct size hinge which took about 15 to 20 minutes). I spent time talking with him about other possible jobs during this time as well. So his total visit was about 2 hours and I paid him $90.00 for the work done.

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.

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.

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
    • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.
