So I came home from work to find my basement flooded and my sump pump not working. These guys were on the case within an hour. Ian replaced my sump pump, drained out and cleaned up the water, and also explained some other issues that I will need to address at some point in the future. Very pleased with the experience from start to finish. And thanks to Tate too!

We hired JDM Home Services to do cedar siding repair for our association. They were very prompt, professional, tidy and thorough. The new siding blends perfectly with the original siding, and was treated to avoid the need for further repairs. JDM also stained a deck for an association member, and did a terrific job. We will be using them again!

Joe was hired to paint the lower level of our home. He was very personable with everyone in our home. His attention to detail was top notch. He clearly knows his trade and was great at offering suggestions and his thoughts. He did not rush the job and took the necessary time to complete the job. In fact we are so pleased with his work, we have him coming back for more projects this week and for sure in the future!

We hired Eddie to rip out our ceramic tile in our master and guest bathroom and replace with porcelain tile that looks like wood. Our master bath was also partially carpeted. We had never hired an independent contractor before and were very nervous. He came recommended by some friends though, so we decided to give it a shot. I can tell you the work was fantastic. Eddie started on a Monday and was pretty much finished by Thursday. He kept his workspace tidy and contained to the room he was in. He cleaned up everyday when he was done. There were a few things we had him come and fix once everything had settled. He was great about following up with a date and coming back over. I would definitely recommend Mastercraft Home and Design for any home projects!!

Bob Loos was a very nice and professional man building front steps at my house. When I ask for a change to be made, he was very nice and made the requested changes. What impressed me the most about Bob Loos’ work was after completing the job he realized some improvements could be made. He called and stated he would come back and made adjustment to the railing free of charge. I would recommend R J Loos Construction.

We made the right decision when hiring Mike to finish our bathroom. Work included taping, mudding, and sanding the drywall on walls and ceiling. Tiling around our shower (excellent work!). Installing new faucet, sink and vanity (including the plumbing). Installing all trim, molding, baseboards. Priming and painting. We really appreciate that throughout the week, he kept everything neat and tidy (really, we were kind of amazed at how clean the area would look by the time we got home from work for the amount of work going on in there each day).

      Put a new roof on my family room along with correcting siding that had been installed incorrectly and caused roof leakage. It came out perfect without me having to stress about where was my contractor, does he know what he is doing, and would it be ok! He did above and beyond what I asked for orginal bid. I wish you were still in Illinois. Can you recommend anyone up here?

      We are having Dan do some remodeling to our late 1800's farmhouse near Cedarville, IL, which has been a challenge at times because of uneven walls, and with his years of experience, he has added a full bath to the second floor, he has replaced a falling apart back porch floor with a beautiful screened-in porch that we now can enjoy, including new roof for the porch as well. Next he is resetting base cabinets in the kitchen and installing a new countertop and sink. Four years ago we had him update the first floor bathroom, so we are a satisfied repeat customer.

      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 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.
