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.

I am the Art Director involved with the opening of the Detox Lounge in downtown San Diego. I worked with Cheryl on the interior design features. Her design aesthetic is first-rate and her knowledge of how to bring different materials together for an extraordinary end product is superb. Not only does she have superior design skills, but the construction knowledge to assure that beautiful remodels and buildouts can practically be brought to fruition within budget. She's a designer with a contractor's license and I've seen her work with tradesmen and crews onsite... she's definitely THE LEADER making sure the job is getting done correctly because she knows how it should be done!

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!

We had Coggins Construction install crown molding in our home. Patrick was very professional throughout the entire process and satisfactorily completed the project under the initial price quote, which was already extemely reasonable. He actually listened to what we wanted and was respectful of our house-things that previous contractors neglected. We would recommend Patrick's services to anyone.

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.

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.

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.

This started as a small one bedroom renovation that turned into a whole house Reno. He was very flexible with our wants and desires and provided great value and feedback. The worksite was kept clean as we still stayed in the home while under construction. We enjoyed our experience so much that we are using them for our backyard renovation starting soon.

      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.

      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.
