I live in south College Station and I am looking for an all around contractor or do-all person to quote the following items:

  • Restain or refinish the front exterior door
  • Change two windows that have lost their seal (1- bedroom, 1-living)
  • Convert understairs into a dog kennel
  • Bid for counter change outs in 1-2 bathrooms

I am thinking if I can find someone to do all of these versus bidding them all separate I might be able to get a better overall deal. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

You might get a better overall deal but some of that work will not be great.

It's a classic case of "jack of all trades, master of nothing". Not saying its impossible to find that kinda person but it'll be hard. And the people who are able to do it all, will almost certainly sub out one or two parts of that job. Especially something like counter tops.

Hire a GC, their 15-20% markup on subs will totally pay for itself. I have a saying, if you need a mechanic, hire a mechanic, trying to DIY almost always costs more in the end.

I've seen some pics of his work, and it looks really amazing. We will be doing some remodel work sooner than later and I was going to look into him. Anyone else have any personal, first hand experience with him? Pros/Cons?
