Casey Construction remodeled my Grandmother's kitchen. At 92 years old, she let the children and grand children take over. We, in turn let Casey Construction take over. It was a turn key process. We all finalized our ideas, made our selections, and let them go to work. John Casey and his foreman kept us up to date on the progress, and (patiently) answered our many questions. Because the whole family was involved, there were several change orders. John gave us all the options and let us know what the cost would be before hand. It was a relief to deal with a company that is upfront and honest throughout the entire process. Our entire family has a new contractor. Thanks John!

    Travis is very friendly and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. He actually takes the time to inspect the major things that most inspectors just skip over, which provides real peace of mind. I would strongly recommend his home inspection services as well as general contracting to everyone in the Parkersburg, WV or surrounding Mid-Ohio Valley areas.

    Did everything exactly as I wanted. Made suggestions during but not pushy with them. All suggestions that were given made things so much better. He really knows what he is doing. All his employees were very easy to get along with. Our porch looks great and we get great complements from all who sees it. I would personally have Brian and his team work on anything I would need done. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Nathan was nothing short of absolutely outstanding. We had so many contractors submit estimates for a ton of projects for our salon renovation. Nathan was prompt and the first person to submit a bid complete with accurate measurements and drawings. His price was amazing but we hired him because of his attention to detail, even just in the estimate and design phase. When we actually started the work he gave us an accurate timeline and kept us updated on what was happening since we live out of town. Anytime we had a change for him he took it in stride and did the new work quickly. We will hire him again for our next salon opening and hopefully our houses we renovate this year. Do yourself a favor and hire him he’s amazing. I’ll add photos to this review shortly.

    Jason and his father Ben did a great job. They were easy to work with and were open to suggestions. I ended up getting rid of the materials removed from my termite eaten carport structure so make sure the initial agreement covers this contingency. I would work with these guys again.

    About

    We do general handyman services. We do hand digging with pick and shovel for trenches, especially work that can't be done with a machine, such as digging through sandstone or tunneling under a planting bed or porch. We do tree cutting with chainsaw, and if needed, stump removal by digging out the stump, leaving a nice planting bed. Customers must be clear on exactly what needs to be done before work commences. Labor is usually a standard hourly rate. Costs for materials needed for the job are the responsibility of the 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.

    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.  

    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.
