We had an emergency situation where we needed trim for an entire home done same day by 2 pm. Sergei finished early and his work was exact. He was very careful removing old doors and maneuvering doors between the hallways to not ruin the paint or the doors. He also cleaned up really well before he left and also communicated his ideas with total honesty and did not take advantage of overcharging for a rush job. He let me make decisions with no pressure and presented different options throughout the project. He ran the extra mile for sure! He worked well with the other contractors as a team to finish what needed to be finished by 2 pm. We will work with him again. Highly recommend!

Dennis was the most economical bid, and was prompt in coming in. He quickly found the issue, and helped replace the disposal as well. I like that he was accessible on the phone all the time. We will probably be having him over for more general handyman tasks in the future!

The floor looks amazing, Bogdan and his crew repaired a section of our hardwoods and refinished it. It was in pretty rough shape and it looks so nice now. The project was finished as scheduled and on budget, which was very reasonable. Bogdan is easy to communicate with and a good guy in general. He treats his guys well and they are great workers. I liked their work so much that I've hired them for two more remodel projects.

Steve is, simply put, the best. Throughout the entire process, I felt confident and aware of what was going on with the project, and Steve made sure to do quality work. I've worked with other contractors before, and it's clear they're just wanting to get the project done and get paid; with Steve, he truly cares about doing the project right. I will absolutely hire him again when the time comes, and he's at the top of my list for recommendations. You owe it to yourself to hire the best, and that would be Steve.

I cannot recommend Polo enough, his number will stay bookmarked in my phone for any landscaping needs in the future as well as recommendations to friends and family. I've been burned by contractors in various trades both residentially and in my business, it seems there are far more disreputable ones than not out conning the masses with over promised and under delivered while upping their bids or coming up with "unforeseen costs". In the state of Washington, anyone can get a contractor's license, without testing (except for electrical and plumbing), as long as he or she post a bond with the state and have insurance. As a result, there are so many "drunk uncles" out there bidding jobs and then throwing unqualified minimum wage paid workers on them to bilk unsuspecting home owners with no state oversight to protect you. It is "Buyer Beware". POLO is the opposite! After seeking bids from multiple contractors through Home Advisor and Thumbtack I sensed an immediate affinity with his professional attitude, communication, respect, and honesty. Polo brought in a crew of diligent, hard working guys focused on the tasks at hand and exceeded my always high expectations. He is personable, punctual, assessed me of all options, intelligently made recommendations that were taken (at no additional cost to the fair and agreed upon bid) and is providing additional oversight of the landscaping for a month, included at no additional fee, so as to assure plantings are established and stable. I am heartened to say Polo has diminished some of my cynicism by showing me there are still ethical young contractors establishing professional businesses the old fashioned way; by doing what they say they are going to do and then going the extra mile and actually doing more! Give Polo a call before his calendar is too full with other happy clients such as my wife and I! Mark Monroe / Mercer Island

Absolutely perfect experience, so I am highly recommending this company! Mr. Tim is very professional, experienced, honest, and just super nice individual overall. I originally hired Mr. Tim to replace a roof on my rental, but slowly kept adding other things like installation of a new skylight, new gutters, new storm door to name a few. Communication was also excellent. I couldn't be on the job site everyday but received updates and photos of everything that was being worked on. I would give this company 10 stars if I could. Never in my life I've had such a wonderful experience with a contractor. Thank you Mr. Tim:) I will be calling you very soon.

I hired R&R hardscapes to build a complex deck with a roof and finished underneath of the deck equipped with lighting and electrical outlets. When I approached Ricardo, owner of R&R and let him know what my idea was he gave me great advise on what materials to use to fit into my budget. One of my biggest challenges in living in the northwest with a deck was having to replace deck boards all the time, even when treated. Ricardo told me about brazillian hard woods and the benefits of this product. Mind you that I was trying to find the right contractor foe this deck for 2 years and out of the 10 contractors I spoke with not a single one told me about brazillian iron woods, probably because of how expensive the product was and how much time it takes to install. These hardwoods last 75+ years. Ricardo was able to come up with a plan for my dream to have this extension added to my house and fit it into my budget. Most contractors didn't want to touch the project because of how complex it was. Ricardo has a real sense for what I wanted to create for my family so that I can enjoy it in all seasons. His first thing was safety. I didn't want a bunch of cross boards hindering my view both on the top of the deck and under the deck. He poored nearly 2000 pounds of concrete under each support pole and doubled the size of the footings to make it super stable, enough to put 2 elephants on my 350 square foot deck. Let me tell you that my deck is the talk of the neighborhood. Everyone wants to come over and hang out. Another thing a really appreciate about Ricardo is he always picks up the phone to talk to you when you have questions and I had a lot of questions. He did such a great job on my deck that I contracted him to do my pavers under the deck and souronding areas and my fence. Check out the pictures.

Ivan did a great job installing my kitchen cabinets and modifying one of the cabinet sizes in the process. He also installed custom panels for my refrigerator. He did all of this in a single day! He was very keen on finishing the job whereas I have to drive my other contractors to finish stuff. Would hire him again.

We hired All Phases to frame and install a new garage door. The door looks fantastic. John's crew got it done quickly and it looks exactly how we envisioned it. They were timely with their responses to our questions and the scheduling. It was a pleasure dealing with them and not having a nightmare that some contractors can be.

I just had a new patio installed by Allstar Development and am very pleased with the outcome. After searching for several contractors I decided on Allstar because of the professional approach provided by George Spillmann. After meeting George and talking through my needs and concerns, I decided to go ahead with using Allstar for completing the project. What impressed me was that George did what he said he would do. Initially he scheduled an onsite meeting and then submitted a professional proposal. He also made some adjustments to allow me to apply the accent and sealer the next day. Not only did he provide the material for the accent and sealer but he also took the time to explain how to apply it and provided some of the needed tools. Everything went well with all of his suppliers showing up on time and completing the job as specified.

I called Bryan to finish a fence installation that was started by some handyman I hired from Craigslist (BIG MISTAKE). Bryan was fast, efficient and a pleasure with whom to work. I ended up hiring him for a complete REMODEL of my home, from floor to ceiling. Bryan was, by far, the most economical and professional contractor I've worked with here in the Northwest. His work is of a very high quality and he is a perfectionist. Nothing was left undone, or halfway done. Each project he completed was done right the first time. He is a very hard worker, and cleans up after himself. I plan on doing another remodel on a different home and I am hiring Bryan, without hesitation. Rest assured, your work will get done in the time he states and will be done with an exceptional eye to detail. I really could not recommend him more highly; truly, best business relationship I've experienced in Olympia.

I COULD GO INTO GREAT LENGTH OF COMPLIMENTARY KUDOS ABOUT CHAD NICKLESS OF SIGNATURE TILE AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE HONEST PROFESSIONAL HE IS AND THE AMAZING TILE AND REPAIR WORK HE DOES BUT THE LIST WOULD BE TOO LONG. SO LONG STORY SHORT, AFTER MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY I HAD TO HAVE THE CONDO REMODELED BY A CONTRACTOR WHO WAS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND HAD DONE WORK IN THE BUILDING WHICH I SAW AND NOT KNOWING ALL THE INTRICATE DETAILS WAS PLEASED WITH HIS WORK. LITTLE DID I REALIZE THE INTRICATE PART WAS THE PROBLEM AND THE ENTIRE BATHROOM WHICH I HAD HIM DEMOLISH AND TILE INTO A SHOWER ROOM WAS DONE SO POORLY AND NOT TO CODE CAUSING A MAJOR LEAK INTO THE PARKING AREA BELOW AND DAMAGING THE PAINT OF A CAR ALL OF WHICH I HAD TO REIMBURSE AND REDO. THANKFULLY SIGNATURE TILE ALONG WITH OTHER'S THAT I HAD CONTACTED CAME HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY AND IN ALL ASPECTS AS FAR AS IMMEDIATE SERVICE TO CORRECT MY PROBLEM EFFICIENCY COST AND SINCERE EMPATHY AS WELL AS GOING THROUGH EACH STEP THOROUGHLY WITH ME I DECIDED THAT CHAD WOULD BE THE ONE FOR THE JOB. I AM PLEASED TO REPORT THAT HE AND HIS CREW NOT ONLY DID A FANTASTIC REDO OF MY REMODEL GONE BAD BUT THEY WERE SO KNOWLEDGEABLE CONSCIENTIOUS AND CLEAN AND GUARANTEED THEIR WORKMANSHIP WOULD HOLD FOR YEARS TO COME THUS THIS RECOMMENDATION OF UTMOST CONSIDERATION BE GIVEN TO THIS HIGHLY RESPECTABLE HONEST CRAFTSMAN HIS COMPANY AND CREW.

I would definitely recommend Brian and his team at Craftsman Construction. I now come home everyday to my dream Kitchen! I have worked with other contractors in the past and I have to admit- we were a little scared to undergo such a big project, but from our first meeting to the very end Brian made us feel very much at ease. The quality workmanship, professionalism, and time on the project was awesome. Brian was able to see our vision and make it into a reality. His experience was also a big help in directing us on ideas that would add to our homes resale value but also stay within our budget. Aside from their customer service, the quality and finish work once the project was complete blew me away. We couldn't be happier! Thank you Brian!!

We are in the process of selling our home, and when the first rain hit Washington someone looking at our house noticed a leak in the garage. Due to wind damage at some point, insurance said to replace our roof. Since we are selling to move out of state and my husband already has moved, we were looking at getting it done fast. Synergy was able to come out to look at it the day after contacting them, had everything order and delivered 2 days later, and my roof was completed in 3 days. I am glad to have another big project done on the house before we have inspections. My only advice would be to make sure contractors clean up after themselves. There were some cigarette butts in our driveway That were left by one of the contractors, which doesn't look good when showing a home!

Low Price Transformations LLC just finished a huge remodel for our home. We hired them to paint our entire home, redo our entire floor with hardwood flooring and new trimming, and remodel all three bathrooms. The work quality is exceptional! Aaron is very attentive, responsive, and a hard worker. We loved their work so much that we hired them to also paint the exterior of our home and they’ll be coming out to do that soon. You really can’t go wrong with them. Great quality of work, great communication, and they finish the job until you’re completely happy. We couldn’t have hired better contractors for our remodel. I’m especially thrilled about our master bathroom remodel. Aaron had a lot of leeway with the design of our master bathroom and he did an amazing job! The bathroom looks so lavish and beautiful as does everything else! If any issues came about, he was very quick to respond and handled them without question. We couldn’t recommend this company enough!

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.

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.
