What is a good profit margin on a bathroom remodeling project?
Asked on March 2, 2013 by Jiyan

Let's say the gross revenue from a bathroom remodel is $30,000.  

How does that figure breakdown for you in terms of: 

  1. Cost of materials 

  2. Cost to secure permits / admin stuff 

  3. Cost of labor for any subs

  4. Cost of your time 

  5. Profit 

I've heard that a realistic goal seems to be about a 20% profit margin after all is said and done.  Is this too low or too high? How do you think about the project breakdown when you are pricing?

I figure everyhting its going to take to complete a bathroom at my cost. Then i multiply that number by 35-45% this profit will cover my profit and overhead and my time. I don't get them all but when I do the customer gets personalized service from beginning to end. Read full answer

How can I repair damage to my hardwood floor?
Asked on February 9, 2013 by Anomymous

I recently dropped a Hookah charcoal on my hardwood flooring and it caused some damage.  The finish was damaged however the wood itself seems to be intact.  I spoke with one contractor who said I needed to completely replace the floor however I’m interested in getting some advice on how to proceed.  Here is what the damage looks like:

If you have any pieces of flooring left over that one bad piece can be replaced. If not a good floor refinisher could probably help you. Read full answer

    To get started, provide a short description of your project:

About BuildZoom

BuildZoom has one simple purpose: To help you find the perfect contractor.

How we do this is more complicated. BuildZoom is a database of every licensed contractor in the United States. We work hard to figure out who the great contractors are, and who the bad contractors are.

BuildZoom combines license information on 3.5 million contractors with 75 million building permits, and over 80,000 reviews from homeowners and the Better Business Bureau.

If you are looking for a specific contractor and you can’t find them on BuildZoom, it’s likely that they do not have a license - please contact us and we’ll try to help!

Finding a Contractor through BuildZoom

The best way to use BuildZoom is to let us recommend contractors for your remodeling projects.

Homeowners who hire through BuildZoom's free bidding system report high rates of satisfaction, and homeowners who research contractors online are twice as likely to be happy at the end of their project.

If you hire a contractor through BuildZoom, that contractor is accountable to us. We can enforce standards of behavior, mediate disputes, and guarantee satisfaction.

Read more about why hiring through BuildZoom is so effective.

Why should I trust BuildZoom

We built this site to help people find great contractors, and to help people avoid bad contractors. We take this incredibly seriously, and we have a zero tolerance policy for contractors who don’t adhere to our standards.

1 million people use BuildZoom every month. Our business depends on their trust.

If a contractor does poor work, they will no longer receive leads from BuildZoom, and a negative review will be posted on their profile.

Here are some of the rules, regulations, and laws governing contractors in California

Does Dave Lane Construction Co carry a valid contracting license?

In California, any remodeling or construction project that exceeds $500 (labor and materials), requires a contractor to have an active license with the California Contractor State License Board (CSLB).

Dave Lane Construction Co currently holds license 684602 (General Building Contractor), which was Active when we last checked.

How important is contractor licensing in California?

The CSLB is one of the highest rated licensing boards in the US. Applicants are required to pass a written board exam and prove at least four years of prior, relevant work experience. In addition, the CSLB requires all license holders to maintain at least $2,500 in operating capital and provides you with a range of other consumer protections.

Your liability risk when hiring Dave Lane Construction Co

Contractors in California are required to carry workers' compensation insurance if they have employees and proof of liability insurance with the cumulative limit of $1 million for licensees with five or fewer persons, and an additional 100,000 for each additional member over five, not to exceed $5 million total.

Financial recourse when hiring Dave Lane Construction Co

All licensed contractors in California are required to maintain a bond, which provides you with financial recourse in case they perform defective work or violate license regulations. If you feel as though you have been taken advantage of, you should leave feedback on the BuildZoom's contractor profile and file a complaint with the CSLB.

Dave Lane Construction Co has a $12,500 bond with Financial Pacific Insurance Company.

What else should I know before hiring Dave Lane Construction Co

California contractors are required to submit their fingerprints to the board, which are then checked against criminal records held by the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) prior to obtaining a valid contracting license.

How is the BuildZoom score calculated?

The BuildZoom score is based on a number of factors including the contractor's license status, insurance status, verified work history, standing with local consumer interest groups, verified reviews from other BuildZoom users and self-reported feedback from the contractor.

Why you should hire through BuildZoom

When it comes to major construction work or even minor alterations to your home, hiring the wrong contractor could result in incomplete or defective work. You may even find yourself dealing with huge liability claims. BuildZoom does the homework for you and helps you hire the right contractor.

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor

The California State License Board recommends getting at least three written bids before hiring a contractor. Do not automatically accept the lowest bid - an abnormally low bid may indicate the contractor made a mistake and is not including the same work quoted by their competitors. We've made the bid collection process extremely simple (and free). Just click here to get started.
