Jose came out and did a fantastic job. I've been remodeling homes for a long time, and have worked with many contractors, and he is one of the better ones I've worked with.

If I could select 5 areas instead of just 3 that I liked about Dave, I would! If you have the opportunity to hire Dave, consider yourself lucky. You’ll feel completely at ease that your project will happen on time and on budget with good communication. And having been a builder hiring and managing contractors for some 10 years on and off...this kind of contractor is rare. I first hired Dave to install the 22 windows in my new construction project. That went extremely well. Then I hired him to paint the house. I wasn’t ready as scheduled and he handled it professionally with understanding. We started 2 days later and he hit it hard. Then I hired him to complete the drywall, mud and tape for 1000sf. Those walls are perfectly smooth...no texture...straight corners. Then he tiled a bathroom with 2’ x 6” tiles and adjoining pebble stone mesh tile. IT IS PERFECT. When the last task was taking longer than expected, Dave’s wife and son jumped in and worked until 11pm to finish when promised. As I say, if you’re reading this then count yourself lucky to have happened across Dave.

Several months ago I asked Contemporary Design Builders to install a window and replaced my roof. They gave me a really good deal. The price is cheaper than many other companies who could offer the same quality. My husband and I really like working with them. We are thinking about contacting them to remodel our weekend house before we sell the house.

Working with Pikul Inc has been a pleasure from job start to finish. Starting off with the job walk: being prompt; asking scope of work clarifying questions; sending bid proposal before due date (most contractors have to be reminded of due date). Pikul Inc was helpful in suggesting hardware & project alternatives with respect to lead time and cost. Their pricing was reasonable and they beat their competitors on pricing, delivery and workmanship. Their team was on time and responsive to the onsite team. They were professional, cleaned up their work areas, and gave us daily updates on the project progress.

Carlos told my husband that the drywall and texturizing repair would take 4 hours (multiple spots in the house due to a plumbing leak) and he was in and out in that time. He was professional and did a good job. He communicated with my husband regarding what he was going to do and did not charge over the amount quoted. Would definitely recommend Carlos!

So Luke is really amazing. His 1 noticeable flaw may be that he's too humble. He's professional, attentive, thorough, clean, quick, polite, encouraging, creative, gets the job done quickly and right the first time... like you'd believe someone who owns a business would conduct their business. He's also strong: he carried my oven down to my garage before I knew it was happening: my neighbor told me "Wow." (that's how fast he works!) He's intelligent and funny without being so chatty you wonder when he's going to get to work since you're paying him hourly... he's worth every dollar and more, truly even more: by hiring Luke Carr YOU can help improve this world of ours. How? Because Luke doesn't just help homeowners, he's helping others on a much broader scope! Call him for whatever you need. He can do anything from floors to ceilings and when you talk to him, ask him about Africa. There is more I'd like to do here in my home. I know when it's time to call a professional I'll be calling on Luke Carr. He's That Good. Outstanding is an understatement.

One day we wandered into Morena and found ourselves talking with Kate about remodeling our bathrooms and possibly our kitchen. She suggested sending John out to appraise the labor cost. Soon we had John, Sami and Mike in our home and a discussion started about all the things we would like and to our amazement we were assured that they could do it all. We were pleased that we could have all the work done without having to shop for additional contractors. We agreed to refinish the kitchen cabinets, replace the kitchen island counter, install a new hood over the cooktop, reface a fireplace, extensive remodel and update of two bathrooms, repaint most of the interior of the house and re-polish all the travertine flooring. Immediately we had a bevy of workmen starting cabinet refinishing, wall and ceiling painting. Work was continuous to completion. Sami was very helpful by suggesting and selecting materials that resulted in a pleasant decor. All problems, which were minor, were corrected in a timely fashion. We were very pleased with the work that Morena Home Design did for us.

Nationwide Secure did the tile flooring and sink installation for my bathroom. By far, they have been the most responsive and professional company out of all contractors I have hired. From time of thumbtack post to job completion was one week, and throughout, Nationwide Secure was straightforward and an overall pleasure to work with. I could not be happier with my finished bathroom. My initial bathroom setup was a bit awkward, but Robert did some creative work with the tiles to make the finished product look good. During the work, there was also some dry rot on the walls that he removed free of charge, just to do a thorough and complete job. The end product was stunning. Thanks Robert!

Home star contracting team are very professional, skilled and most of all true to their word. I remembered, looking for a contactor online and in a few minutes thereafter I received an email from Home Star contactor. I was very impressed with an email that was sent to me, enclosed in the email three pics of finished remodeled kitchens that they completed. Proof of their work. My attention was captured. Phil's email was not pushy but made himself open to allow me to decide if I should respond to his email. I did! I had at least numerous contractors (5) to my house making their bids and they were very harsh and pushy. The experience with them gave headaches. All but Home Star. What I liked about Home Star, is that the contractor, Phil who came out to the house for the first meeting he listened to what my needs were regarding, remodeling my kitchen. Home Star bid seemed way realistic than the other bids I received from other contractors. A week after I signed the contract, the work started. Home Star workers were friendly yet maintained boundary. They cleaned up after each work day. Even though I had no functioning kitchen, each time they left my home they would connect gas line just in case I needed to use the stove. The microwave was also available. They were so considerate. I have a dog and my dog became their friend as they treated him like their own. The work was completed in a timely fashion. One month my kitchen was transformed from a little space to a larger beautiful functional kitchen. Phil Everitt, you impress me, in responding to my phone calls and texts timely. My questions were answered or my anxiety generally subsided after receiving a response from you. Daniel who worked daily on the cabinets, Rick who did the electrical work and the others who completed backsplash, granite etc... I love, love the richness of my kitchen. It looks amazing. Thanks guys!! I was so impressed I requested additional work such as can lights and fire place. Thanks to Home Star. Thanks Phil, Rick and Home Star team for being honest contractors. I will not hesitate to call on Home Star for any other project.

I met with Shawn Ross, owner of Ross Renovations, to discuss the repairs needed to fix my leaky roof. He was very knowledgeable and, after a thorough inspection of my roof, he patiently explained what should be done versus what he could do for the limited funds I have available. He was very friendly, upfront and courteous. I was very disappointed that I could not hire him to do my current repairs. I plan to keep his business card handy so that I can hire him for any home repairs I will need in the future.

Martin and his crew did great work for us. They were professional and friendly. We originally had them give us a bid just to remove popcorn ceiling and repair some drywall, but we ended up hiring them to do lots more work - everything from installing can lighting with new electrical lines to installing new vinyl windows.

We are very happy with our new, gorgeous kitchen and it's exactly as we had hoped it would turn out when we started this process. We would definitely use Remcon again for any future remodeling projects!

    Zak from Zapara and Sons is fantastic from start to finish! I was very hesitant to allow a new contractor into my PB home in order to remodel our kitchen. My wife had been on me for some time trying to make some changes to our cabinets, and also building a new island for guests. Zak was fantastic right from the beginning. He quickly put my mind at ease with his caring questions and detailed explanation of what needed to be done, materials needed etc.... I could not have had a better experience! It's truly something to find a craftsman who will treat your home like theirs as they do their work. I'm so thankful to Zapara and Sons and will 100% be using them for all our future home remodel and renovation needs!

    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 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 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.

    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.

    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.
