Having a corroded pipe is not a good thing. The contractor was able to come in and repair the issue without any other problems arising. Would definitely use this business again.

Jason was a breath of fresh air after being stood up by a couple of contractors. He was true to his word on when he would arrive for the estimate and when he would arrive to complete the work. I found him to be competent, knowledgeable, respectful, and with high integrity. I will hire him again for future jobs.

We had an interior door that wouldn't close at our rental. Shawn was highly responsive, the tenant seems to be pleased and it was taken care of within 24hrs. He sent photos of before and after and explained what the issue was as well as how he corrected it. ADDITIONALLY he was very clear on his pricing and sent a invoice stating 'paid' as soon as we remitted payment (via a very convenient app). This was the best experience we've had with a contractor in a long time - we'll definitely be keeping their number handy.

Excellent general contractor, I hired him initially for a hardwood and masonry floor job. As the old floors came out and mold was discovered he was also able to replace the subfloors as well to eliminate the problem completely. Carl was very knowlegable and kept me updated on progress regularly as well as suggesting durability upgrades along the way to ensure the work was done right without a doubt the first time.

Skip did a series of tiny-to-small projects around the house. He replaced our front porch stairs, hung a porch swing, raised a threshold, installed a couple ceilings, lowered a peninsula cabinet, replaced an exterior door, installed a glass shower enclosure, etc. He did everything fabulously. He took on the subcontracting of some other work, too, and acted as the general contractor. His standard of quality was the same as ours. We are thrilled with everything he did. He was prompt and industrious in getting the work done. We would definitely use him again and have recommended him to others for similar work.

Chad was prompt, tidy and professional. We are very happy with the work he did in our home. Replacing a fiberglass tub and shower surround that had cracked up due to improper installation by our home builder/contractor took 2 days. The demo went smoothly and the new unit fit in great. The sheetrock and texture repair job looks fine. We were glad to have Chad's help!

First of all, I would like to thank the great people with Arctic Interiors. About 4 months ago pipe broke in my house. My insurance company said it wasn't covered by our policy. I called several contractors and all were out of my price range. I explained the situation to them and only Richard had the hart to take on the project with my budget. Not only did he fix all the damage he found some beautiful carpet for us. I know he did this job at a loss because my budget was around a 3rd of the price of all the bids I received although he never admitted it. He never once made us feel poor or treated us different than I imagine he treats any other customers. Also professional from start to finish. I only wish there was another star I could add. And thanks for the pens, my kids love them. Travis.

I hired Fishhook Construction to build a shed and deck and I couldn’t be happier! The gentlemen were very kind and knowledgeable also the cost was very reasonable. They showed up to work exactly when they said they would and I felt safe with them on my property. I highly recommend them and definitely will hire again in the future.

Verified review

Before putting up our house up for sale we hired RCI Statewide to address the many deferred maintenance items that need attention in order to get the most out of the sale of our house. We can't say enough good things about our experience with Ron Wehrli and RCI Statewide. From our past experiences with contractors we had come to expect escalating costs and extensive delays when working with contractors. Absolutely not so with RCI Statewide. Their work was 1st rate. They were able to do everything from tile flooring, plumbing, painting and roofing so we didn't have to deal with different contractors. They helped us find ways to keep the costs down. They took great pains to minimize the dirt and dust and keep things clean and neat while the work was going on which was important to us as we were still living there while the work was going on. They stayed on the job until it was finished and completed the work earlier then we expected. We'd hire them again in a New York minute!

Cameron was everything one could possibly expect from a contractor. He was a consummate professional, punctual, timely with his quotes, fair, honest, hard working, and pleasant. I have referred him to several of my colleagues. I couldn't have been happier with his work product and would recommend him wholeheartedly.

    Kevin Postma did an excellent job on my new deck. We discussed the materials for the deck and a plan for the deck was worked out. I needed the approval of the Condo Association and they agreed on the plans for the deck. Kevin was on time every day for work. He selected contractors for the dirt that was needed for the foundation of the deck. The work was done in a timely and professional manner. He was very pleasant to work with.

      Dwight is an excellent contractor. He is trustworthy, punctual and does what he says he is going to do. His workmanship is great and his skill set is diverse. He did some sheetrock and insulation work for me and I couldn't be more happy with the outcome. I will hire him again.

      After an initial jobsite meeting and cost quote, I determined that Mountain High Contracting was an excellent alternative to the other contractor that I had interviewed and receivers a quote from. I have since contracted with MHC to put up a 14 ' high 14'x 40' shelter for my 38' fifth wheel RV. So far I am very pleased with MHC's professional, responsive, price and on time responses. Dustin and his crew are scheduled to start the foundation on Monday 8/13/18 and including time for concrete to cure and a week waiting for trusses, expect to have their work completed in 10 days. I will report on their progress as it occurs.

      Outstanding and dependable contractor. Mike has done 2 large projects for us (large storage room and a floating dock) in Big Lake Alaska. We just described what we wanted and he did the design build. Have several more future projects that we will leave in Mike's very capable hands.

      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 do construction project managers do?

      Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

      The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

      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 find out if a contractor is licensed?

      It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

      How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

      A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

      Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
