Andrew installed a 10x10 sectional insulated door on an atypical application in my garage. He was very professional, courtious, efficient and affordable...unlike the bigger names! He even got me a better price from supplier on a leftover door from a cancelled order. On time for both appointment and install and cannot be more satisfied with the work. Will use again and highly recommend. I have used a few contractors building my house and he is a refreshing change!

From the first interaction, the level of professionalism and customer service from MCS Excavation and Home Remodeling was fantastic! From not being a native to this area of PA, finding a friendly, reliable, and punctual contractor is rare... However, Shawn (the owner) was very nice to work with and he took care of my project quickly and professionally. I look forward to working with them in the future and appreciate having his team come out.

Bobby undertook a gigantic project for us that including fully finishing our basement from the ground up and a kitchen gut and remodel. Bobby was always on top of things and was patient and attentive when I wanted to talk about the project status. He fixed numerous mistakes that other contractors made without asking for anything. He ended up making a custom shower pan for us due to the mistake of one of the contractors and it turned out absolutely beautiful. His employees and subcontractors were also very kind and respectful especially the drywall finisher. The project ended up running a little bit longer than either of us would have liked but other than that the craftsmanship and quality of work was very good.

Tom was very professional and knowledgeable about flooring; what was done incorrectly by the former contractor and how to best fix it. He is easy to talk to and offered to begin the job within two days. He called when he said he would, showed up when he said he would and finished in a timely manner. His work is excellent. We plan to hire Tom again when we need more flooring done and even to finish our basement ceiling next year.

I am blown away by my new bathroom, it looks amazing! They do excellent work and from what I've seen, don't take shortcuts. They keep their workspace very tidy, clean up after themselves every evening, and are very respectful, likeable people. They weren't the cheapest estimate we received, but the quality of work and the professionalism we received for the price we paid was definitely worth it. If you want great work at a fair price, call HillBuilt Construction, they get the job done right! I will be calling them back for my next project and for future projects. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants high quality work from a good, trustworthy contractor. They fixed an issue that was uncovered when the wallboard came down. They went above and beyond to make the vanity and sink top that I purchased work in the space. The vanity was the wrong depth, too shallow compared to the standard depth sink top. If I would have had to order a new (correct depth) one, we would've been waiting two weeks or more, but Jamie worked his magic to make it work with the sink top and it looks great! Melissa is willing to give her opinion on colors and style and was a big help to me for picking out flooring and accessorizing. They also fixed an issue with my countertop that i've had in my kitchen for years, now I can order a new stove!

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.
