Houman came to evaluate my project for an IKEA kitchen installation on a short notice. He was very accommodating when scheduling an appointment, called from the road about very short delay and arrived on time. His estimate was not the lowest, but he said it was negotiable. He approached the project with professionalism and the desire to meet my needs. Even though he didn't do my project (as I chose an IKEA contractor), I was impressed by 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.

Kevin Ghazarian worked with me on a variety of prominent projects at my home. In all aspects from budgeting, design, planning and organization of the construction schedule, he was a tremendous asset. On each home improvement he displayed exceptional qualities of creative-problem solving, fortitude as a leader and task-master and attention to detail in design and craftsmanship. I am very pleased on how well the projects turned out, which is due largely to his professional contributions. Highlights of projects are described as follows: 1. Interior painting of several rooms and kitchen. The design motif was a traditional Tuscani color scheme. The original and uniquely beautiful architectural elements such as the curved kitchen cabinets, wordolf walls, crown mouldings, bay windows and fire place mantel pieces were individually painted separate colors. This was challenging in its multi color design and tedious attention to painting the details. In two rooms alone there were 15 different colors used, all of which had to be the perfect color and hue. 2. Installation of wood floors. A beautiful distressed antique wood flooring was installed in the kitchen, pantry, bathroom and large family room. This involved subfloor demolition, removal and replacement, and the detailed installation of wood flooring and moulding. The hard, back breaking work required a number of workers managed by Kevin. As a result, the work flow was systematically optimized and “driven” until the project’s completion. Kevin was a relentless task master and has many skills as a talented worker. 3. Electrical rewiring of bathroom and hallway. The old wiring was faulty and insufficient and new wiring was pulled and replaced. All ceiling light fixtures, electrical outlets and switches were chosen and installed. A 3 way switch system was a necessity and was devised quickly and installed correctly to code by Kevin. This all required the knowledge and skill of a trained electrician. 4. Construction of exterior deck. This project involved much post production planning and design. “Trek” decking materials, sub deck foundations, metal piers, treated lumber of all sizes, and all the special screws and bolts needed to be estimated and purchased for this large construction project. Unlike a simple rectangular shape, this deck was complex in design with multiple angles, levels and steps. Cutting perfect angles and lengths of Trek decking were a necessity in order for this deck to turn out as provocative and beautiful as it did.

Our working experience with Excel Construction was a great experience. During the early stages of our meetings with Eyal, we were told that the remodeling project will take no more 4 weeks and it did. The workers that worked in our home were dependable and honest. During our meetings with Eyal, he set with us listened to our vision and ideas and made sure we were pleased with the designs of the new kitchen plan. The new kitchen is perfect and it represent exactly what we wanted to have. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

I needed a fence with two gates between my pool and patio to keep my pets away from the pool. The fence was planned to curve along a ribbon of brick in the patio and along the curves of my planter to the wall. Tim was very attentive to my needs and I know it was a complicated project. Tim showed pride in his work and was am absolute pleasure to work with. I changed my mind from wanting a white fence to silver and, the finished project blends quite well with the patio and garden, as if it had always been there. I am VERY satisfied with his work!

Member Comments: I used Mike to do two jobs, one was to install laminate flooring in my living room, dining room, kitchen, hallway and the other was to install carpet in my two bedrooms.Also he did the casing around all the doors and installed base board.I compared several people and not only did Mike have the best price, but he also was willing to work with me as we had a budget, He was punctual, professional, and efficient. I love my floors and people always compliment them when they visit. I was referred by my friend, and have referred him to my many family members, who have all been extremely satisfied. I definitely back to Mike when considering doing our counter tops.

I hired DACH Design to provide design concepts for a kitchen remodel, as well as, pull the kitchen look and feel into the living and dining rooms to create a more polished and cohesive look in the house. The project was just before the holiday season and DACH Design, working through the holiday and vacation, were very quick to turn around and present their ideas. I received a presentation binder that included floor plans for the kitchen, including tile, counter tops, back splash, floor, lighting and window coverings. Includes were also selections for furniture, rugs and lighting for the other rooms. I felt like they listened to what my tastes are, and presented some great ideas. I do wish DACH Design had the capability to create 3D renderings of the design layouts, as that was essential in making the final design decision, and I had to go elsewhere to have that done.

Sherri was great throughout the whole process of renovating our kitchen. She gave us the best quote in terms of all of our wants and needs and gave us the kitchen of our dreams for sure. She was honest and thorough. We will definitely be using them when we are ready to get our bathrooms renovated. Would highly recommend Sherri and Kitchen Bath & Flooring Depot for any renovation project.

I chose to go with Eddie w/Skyline Construction and I'm so happy i did. He installed wood flooring throughout my house & built a beautiful outdoor patio cover . I have used other companies & handymen in the past but was never overly impressed with the timeline of the jobs and some were just plain unprofessional and unattentive to details. Where Eddie outshined & won my future business was his ability to solve issues as they presented themselves (like when my slab floor was very uneven after pulling out the carpet). There was no hesitation on solving it and presenting me options that stayed within our agreed budget. The detail in his work shows he has pride in what he does! My decision on writing this review and recommending Skyline is because people like Eddie are hard to come by... Hes not just looking to make an extra dollar wherever he can; he actually looked out for my bottom line and was very honest in his recommendations. Rafael Garcia La Habra, CA

George was responsive, diligent, paid attention to what I was looking for on the job, and worked with me on price. He put up crown molding, sealed, and painted it. He followed up afterward by filling in any separated joints/seams. He also made some custom kitchen cabinets for me that I was very satisfied with. We discussed the job and he made some good suggestions. He is easy to work with. I don't hesitate to recommend him.

I hired RGB construction to do my kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, paint the interior of my home, and new floors throughout my house. My designers name was Baltazar. He was very professional and came up with great designs for my kitchen cabinets, backsplashes and bathroom tile work. The workers were polite, on time, and took good care of the house. The work came out fantastic and I would recommend them for anyone who is considering a remodel. Tanelle P. Cypress CA

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.

Joe and his crew were very clean and professional. He would have completed our project a week ahead of time however we continue to add on additional projects. My husband and I appreciated all of the work that was completed. We had three bathrooms remodeled, ceilings scraped and retextured. We had our fireplace resurfaced and many other things done that included electricial. We are very happy and satisfied with all of the work. We will have Joe and crew back to remodel our kitchen and patio next year. Thank you Joe!!

I needed some artistic renderings of work I wanted done in the back of the house (decks, patio retractable covers, outdoor fireplace and pool) to present to my better half for easy visualization. Oscar gave me a very reasonable quote and with it, submitting samples of what he was prepared to deliver. I'm very glad I hired him. He came over the weekend to check out the space and take pictures to make the renderings more realistic. We had a small hiccup on the timing for delivery (and it was only a week any way) and after that, he couldn't have been more accommodating or speedier on getting the drawings done. Someone he managed to get the ideas from my head and put it on paper in a way that makes sense. He's really good!

A thorough & professional remodeling of our kitchen. Wesley guided us the entire way, offering design, material & color advice when we needed it, and he also worked well with our material and appliance choices. And he was able to incorporate existing appliances and furnishings in a manner that both enhanced the project and gave us a sense of continuity and comfort. He handled all trades with aplomb, and was also very good about removing bulk, dirt and scrap along the way. We have since hired Wesley for some smaller projects, which he handled equally well. So we can't wait until we can afford another remodel project, my wife has no shortage of ideas. And when we do, Wesley will be our guy!

They did a complete redesign/renovation of our Kitchen. Amazing attention to detail and incredibly responsive. They far exceeded all of our expectations and would immediately turn to them if we were to have any additional renovation needs. These guys are full service -- from creating the design to following through in making it exactly as it was planned. Everyone at this company care and work hard to make one's renovations go smoothly.‎

I was ready for some remodeling in my home. My kitchen needed an update and so did a few of the bathrooms. Searching google I found GIM and saw that they did energy efficient remodeling and upgrades. I contacted GIM and set an appointment for a consultant to come by to show me some options. The consultant showed us many samples of flooring, tile, roofing, painting, and multiple other products they offered. They even had their own architect to take care of the drawings for me and also had a 3d design for the kitchen. All the work was done properly and my home was left clean everyday. Appreciate all the hard work.

The company finished the job a week before which we appreciated so much. Our first visit with Jerry to discuss the design and finish of our kitchen was exceptional Jerry was beyond profesional and explained things clearly. Everything from the quote to the end job was handled with care and attention not to mention the staff was great. Jerry was great to work with he made sure to put me at ease and adress any concerns with any questions I had. He works above and beyond. I look forward to working with them in the future, we recommend their services for anyone looking to get an honest and beautiful job done to their home.

Home Designers and Contractors did an excellent job for me with several projects: -- repairing and reinstalling bamboo wood floors, -- installing waterproofing elements on my guest house, -- refinishing 1928 original oak floors (despite some really awful glue that was used on top of them for parquet floors), -- installing a brand new kitchen (lighting, floors, cabinets, new appliances, custom quartzite counter, sink, electrical, etc). -- repairing patio tiles and creating a concrete swell for the water drainage Al and his team do quality work at reasonable prices. My home is much more beautiful and functional because of Home Designers and Contractors.

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.  

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
