We hired Cruz to trap, proof, and clean up mice and skunk in our crawl space and garage because of all the great reviews on Thumbtack. He just finished the main job and will come back next week to do a final check. We had an extensive problem and he did an excellent job. From the first onsite consultation to all the subsequent visits, Cruz did high quality work, was professional, respected our home, and worked around our schedule. He's also flexible to meet our additional asks: He filled in some holes in our deck foundation where we had seen skunk activity after we asked him; we also just asked him to do some more clean up in one part of the garage and he says he will when he comes back next week. Lastly, he stands by his work; he stressed that if we see any more rodent droppings in the future he will come back.

Ricardo has been great! First he installed our gas dryer. Arrived on time, finished his works quickly and handed over the receipt of materials he picked up at Home Depot. The following week he built a platform in our garage and finished the job quicker than expected. Again clearly detailing his material purchases. Highly recommended!

German is the man !! I should have gone with him first instead of the other electrician that basically tried to rip me off. He replaced 7 old cans with new led cans and now there is light in the kitchen! He even fixed the power to my garage !! In the future I will only call German.

Matthew built two wood platforms for our washer & dryer that required some creativity so that they both fit comfortably within the confines of our garage space. He built solid, well-designed platforms with smooth edges. He was thorough and made a point to double check measurements as well as sought feedback from us as he built the platforms. Also installed an on/off switch for our gas line behind the dryer, which was a relief. Maintained a solid professionalism throughout the entire project as well as showed consistent communication. Would hire again without hesitation!

We had a whole garage and yard full of trash from a recent remodel. Vyron was very pleasant and trustworthy. He was here on time, and not only loaded up all the trash they also swept out the garage and left it spotless. I made sure to get his business card because I will definitely be calling him again. I highly recommend Vyron as he goes above and beyond.

Pros: Jasper was prompt in responding, punctual, friendly, and completed the work quickly. I was impressed that he finished this project in one day; whereas other contractors seemed to indicate it was more work and more difficult. I would hire him again. Some areas he can improve: There were a couple of minor areas that were knicked on our kitchen island that I didn't notice until cleaning up. Also, I think he could have done a little better cleaning up the island- wiping down the cabinet fronts that had a light layer of dust (I did this myself). Finally, I gave him a box of stain & top coat that the previous owners left to us. He applied them but I noticed they didn't leave the counter shiny, like the finish we had before he sanded. After Jasper left, my husband realized we were missing the water sealant coat which we had in the garage. So now we are applying this coat ourselves to make the island water- proof and give it the same shine. This isn't totally Jasper's fault since I gave him the supplies but I would have liked if he would have noted that something seemed to be missing or off (or given his recommendations on what he would have stained/sealed it with to make sure the wood stayed water proof.) Overall, I'm happy with the work.

After researching many contractors and companies, my wife and I ended up choosing Eli to completely redo our new home. Our last experience, with our previous house was a disaster so this time we were very picky and took our time choosing a contractor that we thought would be a perfect match with us! There are a few reasons why Eli was more then 100% perfect for us. 1. The cost was right around the cost of the other contractors we met with, who offered us less and did not seem to want to incorporate all our dreams. 2. Eli listened to us and followed exactly what we wanted, and never got tired of listening to us about anything. 3. Eli and his team were professional, clean, and extremely friendly throughout the entire project. 4. Eli only uses top-notch materials, unless otherwise specified, and makes sure to give you the highest quality in every aspect. 5. Eli and his team were amazing from start to finish, easy to talk to and everything was completed on time! There are so many companies and contractors in the area, and the service and professionalism that Eli delivers is far greater then anyone else. Designing and remodeling our home was actually a fun, joyful thing that we absolutely enjoyed because of Eli and his team. This is the best outcome we could have ever dreamed of considering the fact that we were so nervous in the beginning because of our last experience. We are so happy and have already referred Eli to some of our friends because he is just that amazing. We love Eli and his team and recommend him to anyone who wants a pleasant experience with remodeling!

I am 63 years, have owned five houses and must have dealt with over 100 contractors over the years. I have to say that the project Marius completed for me has been the most positive experience I've ever had with a contractor. He started by replying to my proposal within 10 minutes, quickly understood what we wanted done, and two days later arrived early to start work on it. He worked efficiently and meticulously to install shelving above the door in our garage, handling all the details from purchasing the right materials to carefully cleaning up afterwards, and the end result looks fantastic. He also took the initiative to make suggestions to improve the project in inexpensive ways that I couldn't have imagined. And besides all this his price was very reasonable. Thanks Marius (and Thumbtack) for making this a great experience. Five stars just isn't enough.

Valenz recently converted a loft int a goldfish style glass office. Ricky was very attentive, listened, and was good to work with. From the initial estimate, to build, and finishing touches we are very pleased with the work of Ricky, his father and team. I’d definitely use Valenz construction for future work! Job was completed on time, on budget, and even a few additional jobs around the house!

I entered a request for an electrician on Saturday afternoon thinking, OK, I probably won't get a response at least until Monday. Well, within five minutes I got a response from Mike Anderson of Anderson Construction. I explained that I wanted to install track lighting in my garage. His price was very fair and he said he could do it the following day which was a Sunday! He worked very clean and efficiently and eliminated of all the old wiring and installed my new lighting. It looks beautiful. I couldn't be happier and I would definitely refer people to him.

Dave and Dave did an amazing job stringing up our patio lights. The job included Drilling a hole in the garage wall to get to an outlet, stringing up wire and then attaching the lights to the wire. Although we had most of the materials, Dave did go out and buy the supplies he needed to make sure the lights were secure. They were punctual and very professional and courteous. We will definitely be using their services again and also recommending them to friends and family.

Eddie converted our unfinished garage into a guesthouse/playroom. I couldn't have asked for more from a contractor! Not only was his work outstanding, but he is a great communicator, punctual (the job finished exactly on time), and change orders were fair and reasonable. He also had valuable suggestions that I hadn't thought about and he pointed out important details that other contractors missed when the job was bid. I just hope he's available next time I have a project!

My (rather large) project was closer to custom furniture making than to general carpentry, so I spent half a year looking for a woodworker on Thumbtack, Yelp, and where not. Bay Area contractor market being what it is, I found nobody willing even to look at my project. Eventually I expanded my search to carpenters and now I’m really glad that I did. Oswaldo replied promptly, came to our house to discuss the project, offered sensible suggestions and a modest price and made everything in a week, which was faster than I expected and probably at a fraction of price I would pay to a woodworker. Granted, he does not have CNC routers and other fancy tools or even a workshop (he was working in our garage), but Oswaldo has shown me that in hands of a master there is nothing a miter saw cannot do. Oh, and in the evenings our garage was always carefully vacuumed, so nobody would tell that it saw some heavy sawing during the day. I am very pleased with Oswaldo’s work and highly recommend his services.

I live far away from a large rental unit (from 1964) that needed renovation. Based on the reviews, I went with Nathan. We spent about $25k on the total project, and Nathan did everything from painting smokey walls, laying laminate/vinyl flooring, partial bathroom (2) reno, partial kitchen reno, garage conversion, window replacement, electrical and plumbing work, and various repairs. I'm very satisfied with Nathan and his hard work. The place looks fully renovated and he went above and beyond to ensure installations/repairs are seamless with the original features. Whenever any problems cropped up, he was very willing to work it out. He's professional, responsive, and trustworthy. That is a very important consideration as I was remote.

Victor ended up helping me redo a bathroom including partial flooring, installing a shower door and new toilet, new sink cabinet, removing the large mirror and repainting the wall. He was heoric in locating and fixing the main into the apartment unit, situated deepin the garage with no map. Victor also removed all the old items and took them to the dumpster, with a nice cleanup, all at a reasonable price. I would recommend Victor to anyone who needs help in bathroom work, as well.

Philip mounted wired metal shelves in our garage. He did a meticulous job. We had double dry walls. He was very knowledgeable about what he was doing. Purchased the right lag screws to drill in to stud and secure the anchors. Shelves were leveled to perfection. He also mounted rubbermaid fast track rails to hang off the wall.

Jose Martinez did an outstanding job on my two items: Oak table and Thomasville credenza. He took great care with both the items, gave updates through the project as he did the work in my garage. At the end he put both items back in the house. The Oak table which I bought used over 30 years ago looks like new. The Thomasville credenza which I bought new was damaged by my cleaners and looks like it did when I bought it maybe 25 years ago. I highly recommend Jose to anyone looking to have their furniture refinished.

Miguel did an awesome job fixing an old "skeleton only" garage to building one that is stronger, roomier and lot more functional than just a plain-old-garage. I would recommend Miguel for other jobs and use his services again for my own projects.

Yesterday Jalandhar and his team finished the new 2nd floor addition on my single family home in Burlingame before the guys started there was only an old attic , they completely removed the entire roof , built new walls and a new roof to create a 2nd floor, they then proceeded with a bathroom, 2 bedrooms and 2 walk in closets. Me and my wife are very happy and satisfied with the outcome of the project, from the hardwood flooring and custom builtins to the tiling and painting the expertise that was shown was much appreciated.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

How much will it cost to remodel my house?

The cost to remodel a home is highly variable — size and scope of the project, quality of materials, and the number of subcontractors required to complete the job all affect the total cost. The average national cost of a home renovation project is $13,500. The national average per-square-foot cost of a remodel ranges from $25 to $100. Nationally, kitchen and bathroom remodels are the most popular types of projects, in part because they typically have the highest return on investment when the home is sold. The national average cost of a major kitchen remodel ranges from $25,000 to $62,000, while the average bathroom remodel tends to cost $6,000 to $18,000. In addition to materials and labor costs, many remodeling project costs include permit fees, which, average $900 or more, depending on your location.

Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.
