Remodeling - General Contractor, or Remodeling - Kitchen and Bath if doing basically only those areas, would be the Search the List category to find the best-rated and best-review vendors for this job.


And of course, if doing structural or utility changes (other than just replacements in place on utility fixtures and such), in almost all areas you will need plans from an Architect to get building permit, as well as for contractors to bid to and for the successful bidder to build to.


Many remodeling contractors will get the architecture/structural work done by subbing it out if you want - but I have never been comfortable with a contractor subbing out the design, because obvkously he is going to minimize their input (and hence cost), plus in that scenario the designer is working for HIM designing basically what the contractor concept is, not for you, so you don't get the benefit of their advice on alternatives - either for appearance, functionality, or cost. Also, with that scenario, the design is not done before the job is bid, so there is a lot more potential for variation in the actual job cost. I always recommend not committing to a contractor until the design is done and on paper, so contractors are bidding apples to apples. [If you have a favorite or go-to contractor - something common only amongst contractors - then having the contractor provide input during the design is fine and common, but that is more of a repeat working partnership thing than a normal bidding arrangement].
