I am seriously quite blown away and amazed at how wonderful Jose was. As a busy professional it can be time consuming, researching contractors and companies to make sure that I get someone who is experienced and will not over charge me. With Jose I received an amazing quote and honesty. Just alone with the reviews I knew that he would be the right person to hire. From the get go he provided a fast response and I needed someone immediately to come in and do some plumping and patching up of some holes. Well he was able to come in right away and do the work. He was extremely polite and while he did the work he even kept me in the loop as to how it was going. That to me speaks a lot on his experience and honesty. I of course came up with a few other things that needed to be done and without hesitation he let me now how much more it would be and he was able to complete everything. His can-do attitude is simply amazing and it is always nice when you feel like the person is genuine as Jose is. E-Z Fix is so amazing that when I mentioned YET a few other things I needed done, Jose let me know that he could certainly do them and I have booked him yet again in the next few days. Without any hesitation or reserve I would highly recommend Jose! I know I will certainly keep him on speed dial. Thank you Jose!!

If you're anything like me, you probably tend to be suspicious of online reviews. I didn't know Juan prior to getting in contact with him via this website. I was looking to get a TV mounted. However considering what I was looking to have done, it was going to be more than just having a TV mounted. I wanted the TV mounted above my fireplace. I also wanted a new power outlet installed behind the TV and didn't want any cables to be visible. This was going to involve electrical and drywall. Juan did an amazing job. The TV looks great. It's mounted, looks clean, no visible cables, drywall looks as it did prior to the job. He quoted me a very fair price for all the work, was on time, and very professional. I'll be getting in contact with Juan in the near future for other home projects. I would certainly recommend him.

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 flip homes in the North County. I have worked with Carlos for nearly 3 years on a number of custom remodeling projects when flipping homes. He is easy to work with and his guys are skilled. They are not the type of contractors who will rip you off. They work around my budget and Carlos's guys deliver quality work. I'm happy that I found them.

Antonio was one of the best contractors I've ever hired. He replaced a section of chain link fencing with wood fencing on a property I just purchased. He was very pleasant, knowledgable, efficient, and courteous. He came exactly on time, updated me every day regarding progress, and cleaned up after he was finished. All this at a very reasonable rate. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Antonio again!

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.

I had some miscellaneous outdoor work I contracted with this company including tree removal, demo and masonry wall repair/infill. Jason was punctual and professional. We communicated before the contract was carried out, during, and at close out. He was clear and upfront about cost issues. The cost was fairly priced as well as the add services. My advice as a client is to be clear and upfront if you have issues or questions. Most things can be resolved with your contractor if you keep communication lines open. You can always say no or ask them to fix the work if it is not the agreed upon 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 needed a new fence carpenter to build a fence and add a wall inside my home that was being remodeled. The fence looked beautiful and the wall was done well so I decided to ask if they also did bathroom or kitchen remodeling work. Bill said that he had a wide range of work he could perform or manage for me so I started small and had them redo a small bathroom. The bathroom work included cabinets, bathtub, shower walls, new travertine floor and painting. After the bathroom was complete and saving up for a few weeks we moved on to the kitchen. He assisted in the design and layout with the designer. The work took several weeks but it was beautiful and was much better than the drawings. After several months of work on my home, it is perfect with there help. I can't thank them enough and will pass there info on to friends.

I will be calling on Matt from now on for any tasks that need a contractor, handyman, or jack-of-all-trades! He is ultra responsive and his rates are extremely reasonable - especially considering the excellent skills he brings to the task and his “let’s get this done” work ethic. Matt is professional, courteous, very conscientious yet flexible: so easy to work with! He responded to my handyman request within minutes of my posting it. We worked out details at that time, he accepted the job and he had everything completeed at my home 36 hours later! While working steadily, quickly and effectively, he still took the time to involve me in “design” or “installation” decisions when there were options - something I really appreciated. He’s a great person; left the work areas clean and tidy and left me feeling I’d found a great resource!

GW Construction helped me with a remodel. The job consisted of uprighting a 12 ft. support beam and approximately 25 drywall panels. The price was a lot less than other contractors that bid on the job and they completed the job in one week. Matt and Jody communicated with me on a daily basis asking how the job was going. They were absolutely dedicated to my satisfaction. The contractors that worked on the project were professional and made me laugh all day long. They even let me know when they saw a better idea for my remodel or saw something that we needed to tweak to make it look better. No fuss, no hassle, no problems. Matt gives you his price and sticks to it, even if something comes up and a little more work needs to be done. Overall a great experience and a job well done!

I though John communicated very well during our construction project. He was very flexible on any changes. Most contractors are very flaky; not showing up on time or wanting to get paid before the project is completed. You will not go wrong hiring John. He is top shelf.

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.

Kyle and his team did an amazing job building an enclosed patio and patio cover. He was extremely thorough and detailed to ensure that the project was completed exactly how we envisioned it and exceeded our expectations. He also helped identify contractors for specialty parts of the project such as roofing and stucco that met his expectations and ours. I would use him again for any project in the future! KSH is by far the best general contractor I have had at my home and would recommend them to anyone that is looking for an excellent contractor.

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.
