I hired Casiano's to replace my kitchen faucet. The faucet was making noise and then water spray got clocked. I had already purchased a replacement faucet that was recommended by my HOA, so I just needed someone to come and replace it. I wasn't able to be present, but my renters liked that setup was friendly and professional. When I arrived to inspect the work, I found everything as good as new. I also appreciated Casiano's flexibility to accept payment via PayPal. This allowed me to not bother my renters with payments, inspect the work afterwards and pay without scheduling further visits.

Mr. Hartwell demonstrated explicit knowledge and understanding of his ability to perform the job at hand. Not only did he demonstrated his ability in his work, he also demonstrated his ability to explain in explicit details the different alternatives there were in solving the problem. From the end results as well as the cost in material and labor for each method "prior to performing any work or committing to any method. His work rivals that of many contractors charging twice as much per hour. I would recommend him to anyone needing door work done.

Gussnito renovstion did an ok job, he got in over his head a bit but made things right and hired other people to help with the right expertise. In the end he did right although cost were a little higher. He’s an honest guy trying to do the right thing.

We hired Eli for a total interior renovation of our newly purchased home, including changing the layout of our first floor, adding a half bath, 2 full bath and 1 kitchen reno, hardwood floor, HVAC, roofing, repiping & electrical work. Total value of the project exceeded 140K, and lasted ~ 4 months. Eli & team delivered good quality work and kept us at our budget. He is a professional with high integrity. He was always responsive, provided helpful, thoughtful and truthful advice, and committed to his promises. Our journey together wasn't without hiccups, but Eli is someone you can trust as a partner battling any challenges together along the way.

I had a challenging renovation project to trim out some doors and windows because every surface was irregular. After reviewing work from many general carpenters, it was clear these guys had real finish carpentry skills. For each window and door, they took the time to figure out the best way to approach and then did super high quality work and now everything looks great. Pricing was also very competitive. Hoping to use Barsesat for a cabinet project in the near future.

Very impressed with S.O.T.A Construction. I contacted 5 different contractors and S.O.T.A. responded within an hour. Two of the others I contacted did not to commercial work. Another responded 5 days later. We needed someone ASAP and S.O.T.A. got us an estimate within a few hours and arrived the next morning to do the job. Wow! The work they did was very well done. Truly professional work. We couldn't be happier with the outcome. We will be contacting them again.

I love Eli, Shmuel and the entire team at Lifetime Remodeling. We had an unexpected leak in the master bath that slowly destroyed our kitchen ceiling. They made an assessment, remodeled the bathroom, fixed the kitchen (and put in money saving/beautiful recessed lights), and left us very happy. When we encountered a problem with the plumbing, most other contractors would have taken advantage and hiked the price. But, they were so professional and everything was still finished on time and in-budget. (My friends tell me that never happens. So now I refer all of them to Lifetime.)

I'm a new homeowner in Oakland and needed an engineers help with drafting my floorplan for bathroom addition permits. I decided to hire individual contractors without paying the fees of a General Contractor. Oh did I get lucky to have found Mike who not only provided excellent service in drafting but also offered his expertise on design and construction. Mike assisted with my brainstorming and troubleshooting process beyond what I had expected. He was knowledgeable about city regulations and offered sound advice on where to locate fixtures. I appreciate working with Mike to jumpstart the project and would highly recommend him for drafting and engineering 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.

Colony Construction recently completed a bedroom remodel in my house. The previous owners of our home knocked down a wall between two bedrooms and Nick and his team made the large unusual room back into the two bedrooms it was and were even able to use the same carpet and it looks great!. They did a fantastic job and were very sensitive to the fact that my daughters have special needs and cleaned up their work space every night to keep my kids safe. They completed the job in a timely manner and were right on with the estimate once the work was completed. If I have any future remodeling needs, I will hire them again. Highly recommend.

After much discussion, my wife and I decided to remodel our dated Victorian kitchen. Following online research, multiple in house consultations and estimates, I was surprised by the significant valuation deviations and the lack of insight concerning maximizing our space. I recognize with these old Victorians that there can be complex problems once you start tearing out the old, planning around electrical, but these valuation inconsistencies concerned us; subsequently, we put off our remodeling plans. A couple months passed; my wife was at a school fundraiser and explained our situation to a friendly couple. They recommended a construction company called Refresh and Build; we eventually contacted the firm and spoke with Sam. Once we explained our situation and vaguely what we were looking for, we set up an onsite consultation. Sam not only gave us a reasonable quote but the best advise on how to maximize our medium size kitchen in an artistic style while maintaining the Victorian’s integrity. The project moved along on schedule and within budget! We were so thrilled with the ease, pricing, and final product that we had them remodel our bathrooms. My wife is happy for now! ;) Highly recommended.

We chose Bay Home Remodeling after an extensive search for months to find the right person to do our bathroom. We found him thumbtack and after everything checked out we hired him. We were very impressed with his diligence and ethics. They kept us informed step by step about everything that was going on with the work. There were no surprises and everything ran smoothly. I love the way our new bathroom looks. I would strongly recommend his company to any of my friends.

First just want to note that I rarely ever leave reviews for anything. Jay and his crew were awesome and I felt like they really deserved a great review and some insight into hiring them. I had a really hard time finding a *licensed* contractor to take my job because 1) it was a repair that needed immediate attention and 2) it was a more complex situation that involved 2 different homeowners because my unit leaked into the downstairs. Jay was very helpful and understanding, and he was very honest and easy to work with. Also to note, I was unable to be there for the fixes since my tenant lives there and I live 8 hours away -- Jay regularly updated me on the status, sent me pictures of the whole process and completed everything very quickly. I'm a marketing professional and found Greenstar to be very professional, on time and reasonably priced AND provided high quality work - all things that are very hard to find. I definitely trust them and can confidently say I would recommend them and will hire them again for future jobs.

Wow I just can't say enough about this company! After much consideration we chose Advanced Builders and Contractors to remodel our kitchen. Our new kitchen, consisted of new custom cabinets, quartz counter tops, mosaic back-splash and tile flooring. With any concern or question we had they were always there to answer questions. Their tile work and grouting turned out stunning! The tile guy was extremely fast and diligently. The finished kitchen seems straight out of a magazine. I absolutely love it! All the workers arrived on time every morning, worked long days and when they left they cleaned up in and out. We highly recommend Advanced Builders and Contractors if you ever need any type of remodeling. I get compliments from every person that comes through our kitchen. We'll be contacting them again for our guest bathroom project. Thanks Advanced Builders and Contractors!

My husband and I are extremely happy with Momentum Construction. The quality of workmanship was outstanding, the crews never tried to cut corners and would make sure the task they were preforming was done correctly. Rick made sure any concerns we had were addressed in a professional manner. It was a major remodeling which includes kitchen and master a bedroom + bathroom addition. Once the project began we did run into additional requirement by the city, but Rick made sure that all necessary changes are done. We would not hesitate to recommend Momentum regardless of the level of complexity.

We did a full bathroom renovation and it was done on time and on budget despite the fact that the builders discovered some pretty bad leaks in the old bathroom that had to be patched during the renovation. Could not be happier with the experience and would recommend them very very highly!

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.
