James was fast, efficient, and solved every issue I had -- including coming up with ways to solve problems as they arose. He was very responsive -- i'm just now getting responses from people asking me to send them what i need and yet he finished the work 7 hours ago. He was careful, took the time to do the project right and didn't let obstacles slow him down. I would definitely use him again, and his contractor experience is a great help to whatever he was doing...he gets the job done!

If Thumbtack allows users to more stars, I would grade Maha for 10/10! Before our project started, we interviewed almost 20 contractors and Maha is the only one provided the professional in-depth site analysis with very detailed bidding with all items broken down into material and labor as well as the amazing schedule analysis (and we did have the project finished prior to the original projection date). Thru out he entire project process, Houman (owner of Maha) was showing all his professionalism into all the detail and he was on-site everyday working with his crew, providing prompt update and honest suggestion in all area. He also provided very helpful weekly progress summary that help me to show to my management for the update. The entire crew was all professional, friendly, and showing their care to the premise owner every moment. Communication is 10/10 as well. At the end of the project, I noticed some additional item that I omitted earlier, and Houman was able to help me on those as well altho he didn't have to, all respect for that. I definitely will come back to Maha again if I have another project coming, also recommend them to anyone looking for professional and sincere designer/contractor.

Oscar was amazing and went above and beyond to get the fridge installed. He had to move an outlet that was not properly placed by my contractor. Made a trip to Home Depot and stayed longer to get it done. I highly recommend him!

Extremely professional, reliable, personable, intelligent, and punctual. I have dealt with many contractors before, and I can say with confidence that John was the absolute best. Not only does John do the job right, but he develops a relationship that extends beyond the job itself. If you want the job done right the first time, hire John.

We remodeled our kitchen with the help of Excel Construction. Before hiring them, we met with several other contractors which after our meeting with them, we decided to go ahead with Excel Construction because when we met Eyal, he had few previous projects that did match our vision and ideas and his estimate was in the range of our thoughts too. The remodeling included the demolition of the between the kitchen and living room remodeling the laundry room, bedroom and bathroom. He spent long time with us mainly on the design and the vision and offered several suggestions to make this project better while keeping it within budget. The working crew was excellent as well! Few sub-contractors were involved too they all were professional, hardworking people and trustworthy. We definitely love the results of the remodeling project! Excel Construction cares a lot for their client’s satisfaction! Thank you, Eyal!

Thank you Cabrera's Electrical. We have had so much work done on our home, yet when our private contractor retired, we did not know what to do. Cabrera's had the most professional response online. We had (2) large ceiling fans to be installed, and needed electrical re-wiring of the (2) wall switches that would be used. His quote was what our retired contractor told us it should be. Our fans and new electrical are perfect. I plan on using him again for other projects that we have. We have already referred him to friends of ours. It's such a relief to find somebody who cares about your home, as much as you do.

I originally used Haggerty Construction a few yer ago for improvements to my rental properties. The crews always showed up on time. And were always professional. They finished on or ahead of schedule and were always able to work within my budget. Because of this I decided to use them for a small but high end bathroom in my own home. My wife and I were very pleased with the outcome. Haggerty Construction is the only contractor I will use for all my Construction needs.

We wanted new granite counter tops for our kitchen and a island built. We wanted our island to match our existing kitchen cabinets color as well. Germain came out the same day I reached out to him to measure and gave us an estimate, turn around time, and was very informative, professional, and very reasonable. Throughout the process, he was always in contact with us, giving us updates, and keeping us informed of how the work was coming along on my island. The island we had made has 2 trash can pull out on one side, and a cookware organizer that was customized to fit in the middle cabinet, and another cabinet for storage, he later informed us we had room to add 4 more drawers up top, which we accepted to have done. It came out great, the color of the island was identical to our existing cabinets. We were very impressed. His guys he had doing the granite work were also very professional, punctual, and did a beautiful job on the counter tops. I would definitely be using Germain again for our future projects as he's a licensed general contractor. It was a nice, stress free, experience to upgrade our kitchen working with Germain at Greenview Construction.

For my tax refunded I wanted to remodel my bathroom, I wanted a modern but yet elegant style found on modern homes.I had a few contractors come to my home for quotes and suggestions. The thing that set J&D apart was there attention to detail that is hard to find and it's family operated. Johnny offered different type of styles and material and explained the difference between the different materials. Sarah made choosing materials easy and fun by having different sample and pricing On hand for my wife and me to choose. At the end we decided to go with Italian wood floors and 16 jet Whirlpool bathtub and bathroom fixtures. Alex is a master of his craft. During construction alex paid attention to the smallest details like placing silicone around places so water wouldn't leak and having the flooring cut right to not leave any creases. the job was finished on time and 200 over budget because I added a few fixtures and the end. Currently Planinng to remodel my kitchen with J&D before the holidays. I would definitely recommend J&D to friends and family. You guys rock

I hired Moshe to do a comprehensive building update for my new business (i.e./room additions, ADA bathroom, electrical rewire, paint, etc), and I had a great experience. Hiring a contractor is stressful and Moshe made the experience as painless as possible. From day 1, Moshe worked with me on my vision, sharing ideas and being flexible on the budget. My job was completed beautifully and on budget. Moshe has 30 years in the business and is always very professional, helpful and has a great crew that does beautiful work. If you're looking to hire a contractor for your project, Moshe is the man!! Thank you, Moshe, I love how my building turned out!! :)

Could not be happier with this company. They went above and beyond. We had some water damage to our home and needed a contractor ASAP. GIM came out to my property and assessed the situation right away. They provided me with an estimate and got started right away. My roof needed to be repaired and and I decided to also to some interior renovations. I had my kitchen re done with a modern finish and opened up a wall to give it a bigger feel. There architect supplied me with drawings ahead of time to show how it would look. At the end they put solar on the roof and now I am saving money on my energy bill. Thank you for all the hard work!

Excellent service!I highly recommend Ranbay Construction for home or commercial renovations. The minute I met Brad I knew he was the best! My house and office needed a complete renovation and Brad walked me through the process, helped me pick out materials and finished the job on time! He laid out several options in a clear, no-pressure manner, and was extremely communicative throughout the process. His team showed up on time on every appointment, and they completed the work in the agreed upon time period. The clean up was excellent. They are very hard-working, helpful with questions and concerns, and trustworthy. I did a lot of research and interviews with multiple contractors before picking them. Brad was always available to answer my questions and I can't say enough about his company! I'm very satisfied with the overall experience I had with this company and would use them again without hesitation.

Dan did an outstanding job installing a very difficult arabesque tile. Not only did he have to fix a previous contractors electrical and drywall mess, but he had to remove a wall mounted range hood and reinstall it. Dan carefully laid out all the tiles on the counter before he installed them to make sure that the pattern was perfect. Because the walls were not straight and the kitchen cabinets were not level, this posed an additional challenge. I am completely thrilled with Dans work, professionalism , and fair pricing. I highly recommend him, and will definitely hire him again for this property and others that I own. ( photos coming)

He makes time to discuss desired changes, and follows up to deliver on promises. Results count, and his results were a gorgeous bathroom, and wonderful addition to our home.

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.  

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

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.

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
