I had Mike install an antenna on my roof and connect it to my living room TV. And he did a great job.He called and let me know that he's running late unlike most contractors who don't bother to call. Very knowledgeable, great price, will def use him again!

I am extremely pleased with the entire job. After installing the dry wall, I wanted to paint before finishing the floor. They held off on finishing the job for two days. An act of kindness I don't believe most in a-hurry-to-complete contractors would have afforded me.

I was referred to Renato at Hilux Maintenance by a colleague at work. I have to say that it was probably the best experience I've had working with any contractor. Renato helped me convert an ugly room in my basement to an inviting and functional media room. The job included a lot of carpentry work to build custom cabinets, wall paneling, crown molding, base boards, installing electric outlets, installing an electric fireplace, installing a barn door. I wish I could attach pictures to this review to show off the finished product, it was that good. The best part about working with Renato, is that he is honest, hardworking, very good at his trade, detail oriented. It’s really hard to find all these qualities in a contractor these days. When I’m ready to finish the rest of my basement, he will be the first guy I’ll call.

I feel very lucky to have connected with Tom. It's a crap shoot sometimes finding the right person to do the right job. Tom is a former contractor and he's the one you want for any carpentry type jobs. We had a gazebo with the top boards rotting away and Tom replaced them all with new redwood boards without disturbing the surrounding plants and he added some nice railings. He also put up an extension to our fence and as a bonus he fixed our gate. Thank you Tom! All these five star reviews are the REAL thing.

Sam contacted us shortly after posting our request. He sowed up on time for Free estimate. His price is fair compering to other Licenced contractors. They showed up every day. We didn't need to go after them and push them to finish the job. Sam and his crew were always very nice and would listen to our concerns very patiently. They finished on time and we are very happy with their work. They removed the dirt from our backyard. We wanted Stone on the concert area in front of our sliding door and Paver on the rest(Dirt area). We would definitely hire him again. Don't hesitate and start your project with Sam. Will post some pictures later.

Work performed was for installation of bathroom exhaust vent and OTR microwave with exhaust vent. Written estimate was provided days prior and all necessary installation materials were purchased by him as agreed. Mess was kept at minimum by covering immediate work areas but I still had a lot of cleaning afterwards due to the spread of sawdust (windows were left open). Contractor and his helper completed the job in the time promised. Unfortunately, the microwave vent did not function as needed (not venting air to outside as expected). Contractor was notified and he returned in the same week to rework the vent. He was apologetic and showed good effort in diagnosing and fixing the problem though a little guesswork had to be done by both of us since we didn't have the installation manual. The outcome for both vents was acceptable though my perfectionism says otherwise. LOL. Overall, he was polite and showed professionalism throughout the entire process. He was patient and timely in responding to all our concerns. He was able to acquiesce to our preference in materials/appliances and allowed us options regarding the installation. We felt like he valued our input and we had control over the process especially since this was our first time dealing with a general contractor.

I ended up interviewing 10 different contractors for our exterior siding job because there were so many different opinions on what needed to be done and how best to do it. I'm so glad that we ended up going with Kris and his team. Great communication throughout, incredibly high quality of workmanship on a very difficult job (it is an older house that hasn't been maintained very well before we bought it). I really appreciated Kris' attention to detail and letting us know what was going on throughout the 6 week long process. Also did a great job working with the county inspector, which is never an easy process. These guys are pros - won't hesitate to hire them again for our next house project!

It went very. Ricky and his crew were very nice and trustworthy. Gave him a key to my house since I was unable to be home during the times they would be working my bathroom. He was fair with his pricing and so nice. I have had 2 contractors work on place before and they had such bad attitudes. I will definitely use Ricky again and recommend to friends. Also loved how respectful they were of my Home and keeping it clean as much as possible while working.

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.

Working with Dennis and the entire Spectrum One team was an absolute pleasure. We had heard horror stories about kitchen remodels gone wrong, and were nervous about taking on this remodel. Dennis helped us through each step in the process. Every day, the team showed up on time and made progress. The whole project (knocking down a wall to open the kitchen to the dining room, installing new floors, counters, backslash, appliances, creating a new pantry, and re-doing a bathroom) took just over four weeks. Their price was in line with other contractors we talked to, but the quality, transparency, and efficiency were top notch. I would highly recommend Spectrum One, and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again in the future.

Fernando was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. He built us extra shelves in our shed and assembled a ramp kit I bought online for it. I am very happy with the work he performed! I would caution to be careful when asking for a quote vs his hourly rate since his quote is a flat rate regardless if he finishes it in less time. The difference was not disclosed to me so I was under the impression the quote followed the same hourly rate he was charging. So in short, if you know how many hours your project will take, simply hire him for the hourly rate instead of the quoted flat rate for a project as it may be a better value. Overall, I would hire him again as it was a good experience and his punctuality was top notch!

KGA Construction was AWESOME! First, Gennadiy was the only contractor who was available for a small job. The tree trimmer hit my t1-11 siding right on the seam so I only needed one panel replaced. My gas line had to be shut off and removed and Gennadiy worked around PG&E's schedule for the disconnect. Second, Gennadiy did an excellent job of replacing the siding. Third, Gennadiy was very polite and professional. I can't say enough good things about Gennadiy. I am so happy Gennadiy was the contractor who did my job.

We chose this company out of three other contractors for our kitchen remodeling. they started and finished on time, process went well and smooth. same guys that started were the same guys that finished. they were very nice and after a month of remodeling they almost became a part of our family ;) we knew what we were getting into cause we remodeled a kitchen before but I guess it can be a good experience when the job is being done by professionals. i highly recommend M&M construction for your remodeling project , what ever it may be.

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.

Nick (owner, Colony Construction) and Dakota are doing a medium scale bathroom remodel in our new house. We didn't have a contractor recommendation when we decided to have the bathroom remodeled, so we were careful to call Nick's references before we began. All the references gave glowing feedback about Colony Construction and Nick specifically. Nick is wonderful to work with: his work is conscientious, careful, and clean. He explains every step of the process, and keeps us updated on progress and upcoming steps. He has good ideas for meeting our needs when obstacles crop up (it's an old house). We're very happy with his and Dakota's work, and would highly recommend them.

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.

Where should I start when remodeling a bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Before starting a bathroom remodel it’s crucial to know what you want and have a clear understanding of your maximum budget. If you’d love all marble fixtures but have $3,000 total, you will have to compromise. Being realistic about materials and money before you even contact a contractor will have you on the road to success. Here are some simple steps to follow in the planning stages of bathroom remodeling:

  • List your remodeling priorities in order of importance (e.g., 1. New shower head, 2. Replace flooring, 3. Install recessed lighting, etc.).
  • Calculate what you can realistically afford to spend on your bathroom remodel. Identify an “all in” price — meaning the absolute maximum you’re willing to pay, as well as what you’d prefer to spend.
  • Gather ideas from Pinterest about colors and finishes.
  • Research the costs of the materials and finishes you want and begin making choices about what is and isn’t possible to fit into your budget (once labor is included). If you’d like to stay under $10,000 total, but really love a $2,000 tub, plan to downgrade in other areas.
  • Request quotes from at least three reputable general contractors, share your vision and ideal materials, and work together from there.

How do I plan a bathroom remodeling project?

If you’re stumped on how to plan a bathroom remodeling project, it pays to hire a designer. This is especially important if you’re changing your bathroom layout in any way. Designers create contractor-friendly drawings indicating exactly where each tile and fixture will be installed, down to the light switches. This investment might cost you $300-$500 but save you significant frustration and miscommunication, while ensuring you get precisely what you want.

If you’re going to do your own design, planning a bathroom remodeling project means being organized and planning ahead. Create a general outline of what you want and the budget you have. Identify the specific fixtures, tiles, paint and vanity you prefer. Get all this organized before requesting quotes from two to three reputable general contractors. Once you find the right pro, get a written contract outlining scope of work, materials that will be used, timeframe and payment schedule. Communicate clearly about when to order your materials so they are ready and waiting by the time the contractor gets the permits. Your job from here is to communicate clearly, pay the contractor as the work progresses, and enjoy your remodel when it’s done.

How long should a bathroom remodel take?

With proper planning and a good general contractor, your bathroom remodeling project doesn’t have to take forever. The construction phase of the project will always vary based on your scope of work, the square footage and the condition of your bathroom under the surface layer. Inevitably an 80-square-foot master bathroom with major changes will take longer than a 25-square-foot guest bath undergoing a minor renovation. For a smaller bathroom, a facelift — the industry term for sprucing up the surface layer (such as paint, vanity, tiles or light fixtures) but keeping the existing footprint of the space — may take five to eight working days, as long as there are no surprises like mold waiting when the old vanity comes out. A more complex bathroom remodel that revamps the shower area (customizing the plumbing, installing tile and changing the shower door), updates the flooring and cabinetry, and adds new paint and new lighting could take anywhere from one week to three weeks. A full bathroom remodel that guts the room, changing the footprint and moving the electrical wiring and plumbing lines, could take four to eight weeks or more. To keep your bathroom remodel on schedule, have your materials ordered and waiting, and don’t make any change orders once construction begins. Planning is key to keeping a bathroom remodel on schedule.
