I hired Gusanito to install porcelain tiles in my bathroom. He was very prompt--being the first contractor to contact me on thumbtack--and quickly responded to my text messages whenever I had a question. He takes his time and is very detailed in his work. He is also willing to help you with other problems. For example, in addition to installing the tiles, I also wanted to change my sink faucet and shower handles. He agreed to do the extra work at a reasonable price. The tile installation went smoothly, however, we ran into plumbing issues which he couldn't solve. I'm giving him four stars because I hired him on thumbtack for tile installation services, not plumbing. Nonetheless, he agreed to bring his cousin (who is an experienced plumber) over the next day to change my sink faucet at no extra cost. The total work took about two full days to complete, but I'm sure it would have been less if we didn't run into the plumbing issues. So I recommend him but make sure you talk with him thoroughly about what you want to accomplish.

GEM construction arrived a couple of days prior to working on my bathroom to give me a free estimate. They were very professional and easy to communicate with. They replaced the faucet and vanity in our bathroom. Everything was done in a day and they cleaned up after themselves. They are very honest even showed me a receipt for parts they had to purchase to finish working on our bathroom (I didn’t ask them for it). I recommend GEM construction for your plumbing needs.

Everything was great. Great work, great workers, great attitudes, and a great price! Eli was wonderful. Kept my wife and I informed of the process and what was coming next and everyone was just great throughout the whole process. We just completed our kitchen and 3 bathrooms and now are in the process of doing plans and permitted for a room addition and cannot WAIT to get this done with GMBC Construction! The process will be smooth and handled from start to finish with no headache to my wife and I because we know Eli is taking care of it. Highly recommend GMBC Construction!

Andrew was exceptional!!! He built a custom bench for us and we couldn’t love it more. The bench itself is incredible quality- and Andrew himself was a total pro - efficient, thorough, very skilled, and a delight to be around. We highly recommend him and hope to work with him again in the future!

We hired Lifetime Remodeling in the summer of 2017 to do a first floor addition to our home in Millbrae. The project involved adding 400 square feet to our house, which included expanding the living room and adding a new bedroom and a new bathroom. It was wonderful working with Sam and his team at every step of the way. Their bid was very competitive compared to the many others I got, and the estimated time for completion (about four months) was much shorter than most of the other quotes. Lifetime's responsive customer service and attention to detail made our lives so much easier. Here are just a few examples of things they did to minimize our stress. When strong winds blew the construction fence over during off hours, they came out here quickly to get it back up and weigh it down with sandbags. When it came time to block off the parts of the house being demolished, they helped us move furniture and cover it carefully so that it would not get damaged or dirty during construction. When they needed to move the wiring for our internet access, they made sure to reconnect it promptly. The temporary wall they built was very sturdy and effective at blocking out dust, so we had no problem continuing to live in the house throughout the construction. Sam also closely inspected all the work and often caught adjustments to be made that I did not notice. For example, even though the interior painting looked fine to me, Sam decided that he wanted another coat. When we did point out other things that needed adjusting, such as leveling out certain fixtures, the team promptly fixed them. When I asked for a different design for our recessed lighting at the last minute, even after some of them had already been installed, Sam accommodated the request. Sam checked in with me often, so I always felt well informed about the next steps coming up and what I needed to plan for. This was awesome because I learned that it can be agonizing to pick out tiles, hardwood, hardware, etc. for a project like this, especially for someone like me doing it for the first time. It was also helpful to have Sam's recommendations for suppliers for the finishes and fixtures. We were really impressed that Lifetime finished the project pretty much right on schedule and with absolutely no cost overruns. To make this happen, most days, Lifetime had a team of two to four workers here by 8 a.m., and they worked steadily for the entire day. They also often worked on weekends. After Lifetime finished the addition to the house, we ended up also hiring them to do landscaping for our front yard and replacing our concrete driveway with paver stones. They also did a great job on this, and we are so happy with and amazed by how our house looks now. Remodeling inevitably involves many hard decisions and a lot of time, energy, and money invested by the homeowner! The last thing you need is a contractor who adds unnecessary stress, yet it seemed like everyone I talked to had horror stories about their contractors. We are so grateful that Sam and Lifetime made it a wonderful experience for us.

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

Owner of R Construction, Oswaldo, was quick to respond. I needed broken sofa foot replaced and he did above and beyond i.e. purchased wood, made 8 foots, colored and attached them. My sofa looks great. He is very professional, responsive and goes extra mile to deliver quality job. He is a very fine carpenter. He is very friendly and easy to work with. His rate is very reasonable, too. I highly recomend him for quality carpenter job and I will hire him for any of my future project.

Devin has undertaken a number of projects for me over the past few years, ranging from quite small (realigning cabinet doors) to significant (bathroom remodel, new backyard fence, custom barn door). In each and every case, he has been reliable, courteous, pleasant to deal with, and conscientious about both the quality of his work and minimizing disruption to our household during construction. His work is top notch and he asks questions along the way to make sure that the finished product meets our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Devin.

Job: replace cross beams under deck, replace foundational post that supports the garage, and fill gap in the corner of the roof to keep critters out. ER Construction came right away to do the job and provided the best solution economically. ER could stand for EXPRESS, RELIABLE! I would definitely call these guys to do more construction work in the future. Highly recommended.

I had a great experience using prosper construction development services. My friend recommended me their services and I am very glad with the outcome. Our home now is big, clean and has a open floor plan. The kitchen and great room turned out better than I could have ever imagined. The bathrooms spaces now make sense. Everything is organized. I feel like we used every square feet of this house to the best of our ability. The entire process of framing and foundation was fast. Our project manager was always easy to get a hold of. He even offered a few suggestions which we appreciated so much. Since he does have more experience and knowledge with these things. Their prices were fairly reasonable. We got cheaper bids but I felt more comfortable with Prosper development . Great work to say the least. Outstanding experience and again I say I highly recommend using their services.

If you need any kind of construction or remodel then Hauser Construction is for you. They take care of my rentals and have done an amazing job at a reasonable price. Whether it's routine maintenance, or a total overhaul you simply couldn't do better in terms of professionalism, attention to detail and overall cost. They will work with you to fit your needs into your budget and get it done on time. To me time is money in the rental market and Hauser construction has always delivered on time. I continue to use them for the continuing maintenance needs of my rentals in Monterey. I am extremely satisfied and simply would not use anyone else.

I had long list for fixing decks and sidings for thirty year old my house. When I called MSC construction, Charlie and Sarah came within a day for an estimate. The estimate was for multiple sections with each price. I paid when each section was fixed. We had few change orders that weren’t found in initial estimate. Whole cost was very competitive with others’ estimates so we chose MSC construction. Charlie and one worker spend almost six days in a row (9 AM to 5 PM) fixing all issues of the list. I liked his professional works on fixing decks, sidings and all fixes were well done. Communication was straight forward and quick, so I and my wife were happy from very first call and up to the completing the work. I would recommend MSC construction if you need fixes for your property.

I hired David and his team to do a complete remodel of my town home. I'm a very picky customer and "good enough" is not good enough for me. He was able to complete the work on time, on budget and to my satisfaction. He worked with me and helped (at times at his own expense) to resolve any and all issues that are inevitably discovered during complete remodels. He is responsive, honest and professional. I would recommend David and hire him again for my next project. This is what he completed. Strip down everything down to studs. Install external wall and attic insulation. Install new drywall. Install new kitchen cabinets and granite counter top. Install new windows. Install new front door. Install new water heater. Install new furnace. Install new tub and vanity. Copper re-pipe. Install new flooring (carpet and LVT). Install new recessed lights and updated electrical up to code. Installed crown moldings in all rooms. Fixed external stucco problems. Painted everything. I'm probably missing something but that is the major action items.

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.  

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.  

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.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
