Chris helped us out on a huge yard cleanup weeding project at our rental property and we were so pleased we had him do a tree trimming yard cleanup at our house. He also helped us haul out an old bathtub and took other items to dump. He was always on time, helpful, reasonably priced, responsible, excellent service. Definitely will call him again as needed.

I have a few rental houses, I can always depend on David to give me quality work and a fair price. What I appreciate most is his diversity, it is rare to find an individual that I would trust in my personal home as well as my rentals. I need to rely on someone who can do many things, electrical, plumbing, drywall, building decks, & roofing you name it he can do it. I've had a working relationship with David for over 20 years. He does a great job! I've posted a large tile job he did for me a few years back and it still is in Great shape. David laid a wood floor in my home as well. I've received many compliments on how beautiful it is. Strongly recommend him!

Jason came out to my house on time. He was very thorough in his estimate with all of the plans that we had for both yards. Him and his crew were on time and professional the whole time. He trimmed my two trees, built a fantastic deck and laid pavers throughout the back yard. In the front yard he built a retaining wall with two columns, laid artificial turf and built me a raised planter bed. I am absolutely in love with how my yards look! I will continue to use JSJ Services for my tree trimming in the future. And I will recommend him and his crew to all my neighbors. Thank you JSJ!

He did a better than average job and did it in a very timely fashion. The three things that I was disappointed about were, no clean up after job was complete, didn't cover the appliances in kitchen and he still has the key to my property.

I initially hired DuraCon about a year ago to move some interior walls and build some closets in the house I had just purchased. I later also hired DuraCon to paint the interior of my house. DuraCon got the work done on a tight deadline and was able to coordinate schedules with the company installing hardwood floors in the house. The owner of DuraCon, Chris Farkas, was easy to work with and actively involved in the work being done at my house. I recently had DuraCon build replacement stairs on my front landing. I plan to use DuraCon again for future projects. I highly recommend Chris Farkas and DuraCon.

When we bought our new house I remembered we asked Frank to come over and give me a quote. The quote was great and Frank was able to get to work quickly replacing the old floors in the Living room and entryway. Frank was fast professional and most importantly the new floors look amazing! We get complements all of the time from our friends and family who come over. I would definitely use them again.

The owner of Rios Custom Carpentry, Erik, was very courteous & knowledgeable in what my husband & I wanted done, which was repainting our backyard shed's roof, repainting one of our bathrooms' vanity & medicine cabinet, & repainting the master bedroom's bathroom ceiling this past month (March of 2018). Since he did an excellent job on those projects, we re-hired him to repaint all of the doors & door frames inside our house!

Manny or his people were always on time and professional. He explained what needed to be done and talked about heat treatments verses tenting. His crew has able to take care of the repairs to the house as well as rid us of our termites. I would highly recommend his services.

I needed someone to come trim 2 extremely tall (over 25 ft.) out-of-control palm trees. Enrique came to the house the same day I contacted him. From the first handshake, I knew he was an extremely honest, knowledgeable guy who really cares about plants and trees. His price quote was very reasonable and he left the area cleaner than when he and his assistant began the job. Not only that, but I hired his wife to clean my house and she is fantastic! Enrique was back at my house yesterday afternoon to discuss another landscaping project, putting down new gravel on the parkway adjoining my driveway and really delineating the space, and again, he just took a look at the space after measuring and was able to give me a very decent quote for the work involved. I have full trust in this honest, very professional guy with a great work ethic. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Larry of Elite Builders was one of four that came out to give us a quote on our 107' x 5' wood fence. He gave us a reasonable quote and a great time frame to complete the job. We had a request that he was able to fulfill which was a big help. Yes, we would use Elite Builders again.

I brought my first investment property for $360,000 and I had a $40,000 budget to spend to flip the house. I was referred to Rudy's Home Improvement by Russell Walker from Keller Williams Realty. Russell said Rudy has been flipping houses for him for about 20 years, I contacted Rudy told him what my budget was and I really need to stick to it. He discussed with me my options and then proceeded to do the work. His work was done in a timely fashion. He worked on my house for about 5 weeks and he stuck to the budget. When he was done my house set on the market for about 2 weeks and it was sold for $475,000. Now I'm working on getting my next investment property. THANKS TO RUDY'S HOME IMPROVEMENTS TWO THUMBS UP! Thanks alot Rudy!!

We wanted to remodel our kitchen. So we asked Lisa to have an opinion on the design we wanted to do. She came to our house to look at the existing design. She was very nice and listened to us patiently. She gave the feedback on our design and even suggested a better alternative. I would recommend anyone who is looking for an architect services.

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.

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.

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.
