Steve and his crew are exceptionally professional, quick and on time. He and Jerry came to do a simple roof repair, and we are so impressed with them that we are now using them for all of our roofing, construction and restoration needs. These are the kind of guys I would be completely trusting to leave at the unlocked house if needed.

Jose and his team took a back room down for me at my house. He quoted me a price, and was true to his word. His team showed up on time. They were professional, worked hard, and actually completed the job ahead of time! Jose had estimated it would take a couple of days for the work. He was able to complete the job in one day. I cannot state how important it is to hire people who are honest and honorable for work you do on your home. There are alot of dishonorables out there....Jose is one of the good guys. His team cleaned up before they left - i think my yard was actually cleaner than when they arrived. I will use Jose and his team again for other construction projects in my home!!

first of all let me say how pleased i am by hiring houman, not only because he did a perfect job and he give me an amazing pricing, but for his manners and his quickness, he did the whole job by himself which it shock me how fast he finished it by himself. this project was a remodel master bathroom, i needed him to do painting, lightening, plumping, tiling, and such as. Im glad he was prepared for the job and he had all the tools he needed and also every time he was done with for the day the place was super clean and there was no mess around. im glad i choose him and i definitely hire him again and i will tell all my friends and family about him.

Michael and his crew did the laminate and carpet on my new home, and then 6 months later did a full kitchen remodel. Both projects were executed quickly, at the quoted price, and with a high degree of craftsmanship. Everyone who comes to my house compliments the floors and the kitchen immediately, so I'm constantly glad I chose Jizelle's Home Improvement. My kitchen remodel was a real challenge, as the guys had to take down a wall, gut the entire kitchen, and rebuild it from the ground up. They did a gorgeous job, came up with creative and tasteful solutions, and were very responsive to my feedback. I plan to hire Michael and his team again for future projects.

I had a wood fence project which was quite complicated because one 20 feet long retaining wall had to be built before the wood fence installation. Tim took this hard project. He and his crews, Ryan and Nick were all hard workers. Every single day, they came to the job site on time, did everything they should do according to the construction code. Besides, Tim was very attentive to my needs and modified the original construction plan by adding one 6 feet long concrete block wall to the iron gate. I am very satisfied with his professional service. Tim is passionate about his job, which makes him outstand other contractors. I'd like to recommend his service to any other's project!

Golden Oaks Kitchen, Bath and Flooring company was our contractor to do all repairs on our home damages caused by water damage that happened to our home due to water leakage which was started from second floor bath room and flooded to 1st. floor damaging, dray walls, cabinets, laminates +++ .. at 1st. and second floors. This company started their restoration and repair works the day after we signed the contract. Their crew were very professional in their fields of repair and replacement, they were trying their best to satisfy us. Any time that we had comments for adding more repair at one area or paint the areas in a color to match other paints , they were not arguing that and wanted us to be happy with what we need and what they did for us. They were always on time and also helped us to deliver new cabinets, toilets ++++. Overall everything was done on a very smooth way, on time and the way that we wanted to be done.

As the Project Manager for an upgrade to a condo for resale, I hired Emmy Hyde to do the work. She did a great job! Her attention to detail was impressive and she was very easy to work with. As an Interior Designer, I work with a lot of contractors who assume I know nothing about their trade and often condescend or disregard my opinion. On the contrary with Emmy, even though she knows her trade well. Will definitely hire her again.

MARK IS MORE THAN A MERE HANDYMAN! He is an extraordinary craftsman! I hired Mark to reinstall a costly 30 x 40 recessed medicine cabinet, which had been haphazardly installed by a general contractor. He cut the drywall to raise the cabinet, because it had been installed to low, leaving little room for a faucet; built a wood frame for the cabinet, where one had not been built by the contractor; moved the plumbing lines; built a base for a new wall-mount faucet, before we had a counter-mount faucet; installed the medicine cabinet; made sure all was level; and closed the drywall whole. Mark then installed the rough plumbing for our shower, bathtub, and sink. Mark did a fantastic job! He is a gem! He has a GREAT personality, fantastic work ethic, very methodical, has an eye for detail, not afraid of a challenge, and is truly a master craftsman.

Joe finished our Kitchen and Bathrooms remodel by adding pulls and knobs on new cabinet doors. He also did caulking on the exterior of the home. Joe was on time, and did a beautiful job. He fixed some issues we had from the previous contractor. Very polite, knowledgeable, and we would hire him anytime.

Maria does excellent work. She recently completed a entire gut and modern style bathroom remodel in our home. The remodel required wall to wall tile work, and it turned out beautiful. She has a good eye, and it is easy to communicate what you want done. She is also willing to offer suggestions you may not have thought of before, which has ended up adding a custom and elegant touch to our remodel. Maria has done work in our house before, and we keep asking her back to do more because we trust her, and she is very detail oriented. When we have people over to our house (including other contractors) they always comment on the quality of the work done by Maria. Everyone who meets her (including our neighbors) love to snatch her up to do work in their houses as well :-) We were very lucky to have found her. Once again, Maria exceeded our expectations.

I would definitely recommend Sami and MHD for home renovation! I shopped for several companies and Sami provided the quote fastest with a very reasonable price. He is detail oriented, always responsive to calls and requests. He brought us to pro source stores to shop for material. Great quality with wholesale price. I did hard wood floor on my second and third level and the stairs for more than 2000 square feet. We used laminate. Sami did a fantastic work without using quarter round as transition per our request. It looked fabulous. Sami is definitely a trustworthy person and such a perfectionist with patience. We needed a project manager who is willing to spend time on our home while we can stay away and busy with our business. And Sami is definitely the one you can give your home to.

I would highly recommend Artisan Design and Build, the staff was very easy to work with and the result was amazing. He really listened to what my concerns were, (I have a really small bathroom) and how I wanted it to look like and he went out of his way to do the work perfectly. Im so happy with my new bathroom. He can also custom make something for you ! He made a bathroom cabinet for me. The cabinet has good storage space without taking to much room, which was my mane concern. THANK YOU ARTISAN!

My wife and I liked the work El Sol Construction performed on our home. We needed a small kitchen renovation. Everything was great except for the crew they hired to texture our ceiling and walls. The work was originally supposed to be four days but ended up being double because of that problem. They saw that the work needed to be redone and was in a timely manner. The rest of the crew was excellent. Their son Alex did an outstanding job with all his work and the same goes for Justo, another one of the workers. We would have give them a five had the texturing not been a problem. The company does a very good job keeping their clients informed. They are professional with how they handle business and also on time with their arrival. They cleaned up nicely when they finished the job. I would definitely recommend El Sol Company for any construction job needed to be performed on your home.

Could not be happier with this company. They went above and beyond. We had some water damage to our home and needed a contractor ASAP. GIM came out to my property and assessed the situation right away. They provided me with an estimate and got started right away. My roof needed to be repaired and and I decided to also to some interior renovations. I had my kitchen re done with a modern finish and opened up a wall to give it a bigger feel. There architect supplied me with drawings ahead of time to show how it would look. At the end they put solar on the roof and now I am saving money on my energy bill. Thank you for all the hard work!

I needed an odd-sized interior door replaced and a front door repaired. Ron delivered exactly what a contractor should. He: 1) estimated at the work, 2) quoted a very competitive price for labor and materials, and 3) did excellent work on time and on budget. Ron will be the first place I look next time I need repairs made.

Fred Saba designed and implemented a complete remodel of my kitchen and dining room. The results were spectacular considering the small space he had to work with. We were so happy with the results that we subsequently hired him to remodel a guest bathroom. Once again, it was completed in a timely manner and came in right on budget. Saba Design will always be my first choice for future remodeling projects. As a bonus, Fred is also one of the nicest men you will ever meet!

We are so glad we were referred to Wayne Simonian at Premier Contracting. Wayne was extremely knowledgable, experienced, and professional. My husband and I truly enjoyed working with him on our home renovation. His expertise and years of experience were apparent right off the bat. Renovations can be overwhelming, but we felt at ease and confident in him from the very beginning. He is affordable yet never lacking in quality, and his keen eye for design makes him stand out above others. Our home turned out better than we could’ve imagined. You won’t be disappointed.

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.
