It is such a pleasure to do business with Box Construction. Mr Box is so committed, honest, trustworthy, thorough, knowledgeable and helpful. He came out for an estimate and thoroughly inspected my roof, then gave me excellent advice. He offered multiple options available to help me decide how best to fix my problem. He and his team executed the job with diligence and an attention to detail. They were all trustworthy, hard working and polite too. Stephen Box and Box Construction go above and beyond what is expected on the job. He took care of my construction needs as if I were part of his family. I highly recommend and refer them to all who have any type of construction need. I look forward to doing business with them in the future.

I contacted Houman over internet. Had several jobs for him in my new condo. We reviewed what work needed to be done and he gave me an estimate. He worked quickly and extremely neat and carefully. He put in new electrical outlets Redesigned cabinetry and installed it. Broke through walls for electrical work patched and painted. I cannot even find where he did the work. Set up closet systems, shelving in three closets hung shelves,fixed leaking faucets and installed two large lights in the garage. Bought supplies that were needed and showed me better ways to accomplish what I wanted. He is a man of many talents and I will call him again when I have other projects. I highly recommend Houman

Jerome did a wonderful job installing the closet system in my master bedroom. He had all the tools to cut the materials to fit. He also installed 2 saf racks in my garage. My garage is small so I thought only 1 would fit but he was able to fit both 4 x 8 racks in securely. I will hire him again for any other installation projects and will be recommending him to my friends and neighbors.

American Castles Mike To the RESCUE!!! The water heater at my rental property burst on a Friday afternoon causing some major damage to the house. The renters were furious because their items got damaged and the house wasn't inhabitable after that. On the inside, the bathroom wall and under stairway closet were all soaking wet and drywall/carpet/padding had to be removed immediately to prevent mole build up. On the garage side where the water heater located, the entire wall was destroyed. so I called my home insurance who provided me with their preferred plumber who quoted an additional $540 out of pocket on top of what the insurance was going to cover just so he can bring up the water heater installation to code! He told me that it will take him 1+ week to order the water heater (duh...get one from Home Depot take only 1hr...which is what Mike did) and that he can install a temporary water heater and will charge $137/wk! He also referred me to a water damage restoration company which I was not too happy with either. Since it was an emergency and I went with that company. They came in and ripped out all the wet drywall without caring for any molding; especially for garage doors and closet doors! It seemed like what ever the water heater didn't damage, they did. They also broke my water heater intake shut off valve. damage the water heater over flow copper pipe. All I can say is I will not use them again! Back to the plumber, something was smelling fishy about his quote and so I called and questioned this plumber. His response was "Well, I will need to flush out the gas line and calibrate your water pressure...upgrade to the new California safety quote...put in earthquake straps...install new vent line since the new water heater nowaday don't use the old vent line!". I was not convinces so I started to Google for good local contractor and AMERICAN CASTLES (Mike Tay is the owner) came up from Thumtack along with few others from other websites. I contacted them and they came in and provided me quotes. Mike was the last one I contacted. He arrived within 30min. He checked out the damages and explained to me what needs to get done sequentially to get everything back in proper operation for my tenants. Mike is very knowledgeable and very patient in explaining things. I told him what the plumber had said, he laughed and told me the whole thing was a rip off and a scam! Another crock of bull**** and advised me against it. He told me to call my insurance company to inquire about using other plumber. Sure enough I was offered the "cash out" option which I didn't even know was available. I took that option and went with Mike for the repair. Mike knows how important it is for my tenants to get the hot water running again once the water damage restoration company completed the clean up/dry out the area (took 1 week). As soon as that company removed their equipment, Mike had his crew come in the next day (Saturday) to repair the garage dry wall and finished the installation of the new water heater and brought it up to code on safety on Sunday! He even added the water pan and installed drain pipe for me. I didn't even know such a thing exists (talk about quality...he treats it like repairing his own home!). The best part is his charge for the whole job including new water heater, earthquake straps, valve, drain pan, vent and new connection is far way less than what that plumber was going to charge me. I loved the fact he took the time to show me how things should be done up to code and what works for my situation instead of just giving a price and walking away. He did an awesome job! Unfortunately my landlord insurance's deductible was so high, I asked Mike to give me a quote for fixing the damage in the garage and inside the house. Mike's quote was very competitive and the best part is he is always willing to work with me knowing my situation (thx Mike). My bathroom paint is 16 years old so it was a challenge to match the paint for the new wall. After only quoting me for painting a small wall inside the bathroom, Mike decided on his own to paint the entire bathroom without charging for it. Now that what I call TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK AND STICKING TO YOUR WORD!!! My summary is, Mike successfully completed the entire job and installation in four days. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone and will definitely be using and referring him to everyone I know.

After looking into our project (drywalling garage and some demolition), we realized we wanted to wait on this project and save up for a better budget that would serve our needs better. However, our experience with George was very professional from the get go. He called and stopped by the very same day I posted the project. He provided an estimate on the spot, and even stopped by a day later to drop off a written estimate. Since we want our garage to serve as a gym/work area, we realized we needed a bigger budget to serve our needs and have the final project be as nice we'd like. George's professionalism left me feeling very impressed and comfortable with him. This is the type of man you could trust both inside/outside of your home, and for this reason, I'll definitely be considering George for any work my home needs in the future!

Milton and his son were exceedingly professional and friendly. I have worked with several electrical companies, and I must say Milton is Highly skilled, very efficient and an experienced electrician. Clean working habits. They cleaned their work space. Tested the outlets to ensure all in great working condition. Went above and beyond the scope of the project and patched the holes resulting from installing the outlets as well as patching unrelated holes in the closet. Their price was fair and competitive. Quick response time and scheduling. Spoke with him yesterday afternoon and he finished the project today. Will highly recommend this company and use their services in the future. I couldn’t have been more pleased! Thank you

We hired Cova Construction to install a new garage back door and a security door. They arrived on time, and were ready to work. They installed both doors, new locks and new trim. They cleaned up after they completed their jobs. The work was thorough and completed to our satisfaction. Good quality work. I had no issues with the doors, they work perfectly. We have some other work we would like to have done and we will definitely hire Cova Construction to complete those jobs for us. They were on time, finished work in a timely manner and are very professional.

Darrion has done a number of jobs for my house and he always does a great job. What I like the best is that you get a feeling that he knows what he is doing and his repairs would be the best quality. He has a ton of experience and knows what he is talking about. He can do any repairs in the house as he has built a lot of houses. I highly recommend Southland Torres Construction. The prices are reasonable.

Daniel, Mario and the rest of the team at World Class Construction are honestly the best crew I’ve ever hired, and I’ve done quite a few remodeling projects over the last 20 years. They are extremely professional, courteous, fairly priced, and best of all – fast! My wife and I were very impressed by the speed at which our luxury bathroom remodel was completed, and trust me when I say this was no ordinary job…. everything was custom, and they stepped up to the challenge and delivered. Overall, we are 100% satisfied – so satisfied in fact, that we immediately hired them again to remodel our garage conversion project. Thank you World Class Construction!! (PS, a lot of companies ask you to write a review… we were not asked – our bathroom just looks that AWESOME ☺.)

We are first time homeowners in California and recently had a slab leak, which resulted in our first floor being completely demo'd. If that wasn't enough, we were days away from my husband retirement ceremony from the Marine Corps with 31 years of dedicated service. We also had several family members and friends coming in from all over the world. I was frantic. I called Jordan and he came over that night. Honestly, there is no one else I would call. He is not only down to earth, kind, professional, flexible and compassionate, he truly cares about your problem. As busy as he is, he makes you feel as if you're his only customer. He and Tim went above and beyond for us. Not only did he fix the problem, he dealt with our insurance and mortgage companies - which is no easy task. Other companies said it would take months. He and his crew worked around the clock and completed everything in less than 25 days. Our house was amazing and ready for our retirement party on time and on target. His work is exceptional. We wouldn't refer anyone else except Boyes and Sons!!!

Jake reached out to me right away and was ready to come do the job right away! Initially, we were trying to navigate the repair over the phone, but I was so glad that he ended up coming by and exploring a more practical and inexpensive option for the job. The quality of his work and attention to detail are stellar.....and I am very picky. I had him do a second job the next day to fix my house and garage trim....boy, was I shocked to see the final product. It was AWESOME! I'm planning to continue working with him on the rest of my 'wish list'. Jake is amazing and I love the ideas he brings!

Sidney was flexible enough to come on the day of my request for a quote, which was a Saturday. We got the quote within 24 hours and by a landslide, it was the best one and he worked with us to get it within budget. There was a period in time where I had a hard time contacting him on a question I had but I will chalk it up to him being busy. I do appreciate what he has done and it looks great. Our garage finally is coming together. Thank you!

    I was very happy with how our garage project turned out. We needed to completely insulate, drywall and paint our garage with cabinets and shelving and he was able to complete the project in a timely manner. Nicholas Reyes Construction was very easy to work with and gave us a competitive price and never tried to up-sell additional items like we have experienced with other contractors. His work quality is excellent and always kept us up to date with the progression. I highly recommend him.

    Ramos & Son Contruction Co has done alot of projects for me over the years. I live in a Tri Level home in Covina Ca and Juan Ramos has Remodeled my 2 bathrooms, Kitchen area, Outside waterfall pond, electrical work, reinsulated the upstairs walls in all bedrooms, plumbing work, recessed lighting, repositioned a major support post in my Garage area for more room in the laundry room, installed Crown molding around the interior of my home, and painting. I have a touching story of Juan Ramos, In the summer of 2016 as Juan Ramos was reconstructing my exterior waterfall pond area, my 4 year granddaughter was placed in foster care, so I had applied for my granddaughter to get placed with me, there was alot of things that I had to do to get my home ready for inspection by the dept of Children Services for the home to be approved for my granddaughter to be placed with me. Inspection day came and everything was looking good until the social worker inspected the fireplace, the social worker indicated that she could past the. Inspection because the fireplace did not pass because the fireplace had a steel mesh protector in the front and that it needed a more stable protector, my heart just dropped because my granddaughter was still in foster care with people she did not know. So, immediately I thought of Juan Ramos that was outside rebuilding my pond as the social worker was there doing the inspection. I immediately went outside to ask Juan Ramos if he could temporarily construct a temporary barrier in front of fireplace so the inspection could pass. The social worker said that would be good and ask me to send a picture of the temporary barrier once its installed since she had to leave for her another assignment. Juan Ramos immediately went to Home depot to get the materials needed to construct barrier as I had to report back to work, Juan Ramos completed the temporary barrier within a couple of hours and then he sent me the picture of barrier so I could send to the Social worker, the Social worker was impressed and approved home for my granddaughters placement with me. My granddaughter now has a safe home, and I have adopted her and she now goes to a Christian school in Covina Ca. I give alot of thanks to Juan Ramos for going out of his way and doing this for my granddaughter . Overall Juan Ramos does excellent and remarkable work, his work is very neat, clean, and very detailed at a great price, there was never no delay in all the projects that he has done at my home. Most importantly he's a man of honor, with a heart of gold. I have so much respect for Juan Ramos because of his honesty and caring nature. Best contractor I have ever met in my life.

    The technician that came to my home was Tommy and he did an excellent job. We had a flood from our upstairs bathroom while everyone was out of the house and it flooded almost every room upstairs and then went through the ceiling and damaged our kitchen, family room and lower bathroom. Tommy came with another technician. They were both dressed very well, clean cut and the first thing he did was give me his card with his direct number on it. He then asked if he could walk through the home with me and he showed me all the areas that were wet and how far up the walls the water had gone. He used a moisture reading tool and he took plenty of photos so my insurance company could see. He explained what the process of getting my home dry would be and what exactly he would do and the time frame he thought it would take. He made sure that I was completely in the loop of everything his team was doing and the entire team were very considerate of our home and our belongings. Tommy went as far as meeting my insurance adjuster back at my home even though it was scheduled during a time that he wasn't supposed to be here. Tommy made sure to keep me in the conversation with my adjuster and himself. I would highly recommend this company should anyone I know suffer from water damage and I kept his card in case I ever need their company again for my own home.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
