I was very pleased with Stephen Box and his crew. They came out when scheduled, did a great job and cleaned up after themselves. Stephen is honest, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. I would not hesitate to have him in my home for all of my repairs/construction needs.

Jose and his team took a back room down for me at my house. He quoted me a price, and was true to his word. His team showed up on time. They were professional, worked hard, and actually completed the job ahead of time! Jose had estimated it would take a couple of days for the work. He was able to complete the job in one day. I cannot state how important it is to hire people who are honest and honorable for work you do on your home. There are alot of dishonorables out there....Jose is one of the good guys. His team cleaned up before they left - i think my yard was actually cleaner than when they arrived. I will use Jose and his team again for other construction projects in my home!!

Houman did a wonderful job painting all of our bathroom cabinets and our hallway linen cabinets. He went out of his way to search for the right fitting hinges for our very old cabinets. He was also able to get the job done with very short notice. I will definitely call on him again for other home repair and project work.

Golden Oaks Kitchen, Bath and Flooring company was our contractor to do all repairs on our home damages caused by water damage that happened to our home due to water leakage which was started from second floor bath room and flooded to 1st. floor damaging, dray walls, cabinets, laminates +++ .. at 1st. and second floors. This company started their restoration and repair works the day after we signed the contract. Their crew were very professional in their fields of repair and replacement, they were trying their best to satisfy us. Any time that we had comments for adding more repair at one area or paint the areas in a color to match other paints , they were not arguing that and wanted us to be happy with what we need and what they did for us. They were always on time and also helped us to deliver new cabinets, toilets ++++. Overall everything was done on a very smooth way, on time and the way that we wanted to be done.

Darrin came and literally saved the day. I was getting quotes for THOUSANDS of dollars for the project I had and was becoming so discouraged. Long story short, we were completely HOSED by our contractor, found ourselves out of money and only 60% through a total house remodel (that we were living in) GREAT. Darrin came and looked at the very daunting job (a solid 1500 sqft of drywall to patch and texture, at least). He admitted it was a big job but took it on head strong. I was very impressed with his work ethic and work quality. He finished the job by himself within 5 days. I was ecstatic. I definitely recommend him!

Mark is fantastic. He did several jobs at our home in Redlands, and completed them very efficiently. All work was done to the highest standards, and very quickly. Everything from start to finish in each job went exactly as planned and Mark conducts himself like a true professional. Coming from a family of contractors, I can genuinely say that Coastal Handyman Connection is the real deal. Fantastic work at a very reasonable price!

I submitted my request and Shawn was able to come by and give me a quote and do the work the same day. No other contractors that I spoke to that day called back like they said they would but Shawn followed up and showed up ready to work. I've already received so many compliments on the work that he did finishing my Quartz Stone Accent Wall. Thanks Shawn! I would recommend him for sure for other work and to others

Our house in Corona was built around 1988 - 1990, and so our Circuit Breaker Panel was about 25+ years old and the switches were getting bad, and many of the handymen and servicemen that came to install our appliances or fix some electrical issues recommended that we look into upgrading our circuit panel. We knew that would cost us around $2K. Few months ago we decided to go ahead with this upgrade. We looked at different electricians in the area and some through Thumbtack, Tim was one of the five guys that gave us a quote here. We gave Tim a call and he came over our house to look at our system and gave us step by step details on what he would do to replace the circuit breaker, how much time it would take, what kind of licenses needed by the city, etc. His price quote was higher than most other estimates by other guys, but still was lower than $2K. We decided to go with him since he seemed very professional and knows what he is doing (we wanted this project to be done right from the first time), and was willing to work around our own schedule as we were doing other home improvement projects. We agreed to a certain day, and Tim went ahead and bought all the necessary parts for this task (which were covered by the price he gave us from the start and there were no changes). Tim contacted our electric company to get approval to turn off power on the day of so he can do his work/upgrade, and the company would turn the power back on the same day after the work was done. Tim arrived on time the day of the work, 7 AM, took about an hour to prepare the materials and make an opening on outside wall around where the old breaker panel was located (since the new 200 Amps panel would be much larger in size). Power went off the house at around 8 AM, by 12 or 12:30 PM all work was done and the power came back on. Tim originally estimated work time would be between 4 - 6.5 hours, our upgrade was easy and quick and so was on the lower end of the estimated time. We had to wait though until around 2 or 2:30 PM for the city inspector to come by and approve the work and issue us a license, but that was outside Tim's control since the inspectors don't give you an exact time but rather a window time frame when they would be in your area. Overall we are very happy with this upgrade, it’s been 3 months since, and everything is working nicely. After this project was over, we had to bring a handyman who would close up the stucco wall around the new breaker panel since a larger opening was needed to access the wires and Tim informed us about that from the very beginning. In the past few months we have brought Tim over to fix a couple other electrical issues around our house since we like his professional work and reasonable pricing and we are always happy with his finished work. We highly recommend using Tim (Electrical Connection) for your next electrical project/fix :)

I hired Kent to refinish my kitchen cabinets that were originally built in 1969 and were in overall good structural condition but completely lacked aesthetics on the outside. Since the cabinets were so old, they of course did not have hidden or soft close hinges which I was really hoping to be able to achieve with the kitchen remodel. I had other contractors come in and tell me that I would have to live with the outdated cheap hinges as they would not be able to configure new doors and drawers with hidden hinges and that's where the amazing Kent Merrill comes in. Not only did Kent do an amazing job at refinishing the exterior of the cabinet boxes, the new doors and drawers faces, but he was able to install new soft close glides for the drawers and wait for it........hidden soft close hinges. A miracle in its self, but not for Kent, he is truly a master of kitchen cabinet makeovers. I cannot speak highly enough of his skill set and professionalism. If I ever have another kitchen where the cabinets need to be redone, I will not think twice about going with anyone but Kent.

After purchasing our new construction home in the Sky Ridge Community, we had several contractors come out to submit design plans and bids. Being from the area and owning our previous home just 5 miles away, we had contractors we have used before also participate in the process. Ultimately we took a chance on the unknown and went with DG Construction. Our gamble paid off we ended up with a beautiful back yard and quickly learned to trust Owner David Gomez with his ideas. The process from start to finish was very smooth and his team was very professional and hard working. DG construction met all their timelines and delivered a transparent billing process that was easy to follow and didn't have any surprises. If you are a serious about using DG Construction reach out David and I am willing to let him show you an example of his work.

We have been working with Eddie on multiple properties for over 5 years now. His work has ranged from very simple to major remodeling and home repairs (plumbing, electrical, kitchen remodel, tile floors/counter tops, painting, roof repair and more). We really value his honesty, responsiveness and reliability. The guy is personable and he offers good ideas. And his work is very high quality, for very fair rates. A good contractor is a great resource - I would definitely recommend him.

After our initial contact on thumbtack, I called Southerland Torres company on the phone. I was so reassured by our conversation that I made an appointment for an electrician to come to my home and fix the problem. I had chosen a date about a week away and by the time he came over I had thought of a few more things that needed fixing too. All projects were done for a lot less than I thought it would cost me. I am so very pleased with the company and would recommend them to any and all that need any electric, plumbing, appliance repair or general construction issues they need addressed. Thank you Darrion I appreciate all the work you did for my little house!

Alan is a very reliable contractor that did repairs on a house I had in escrow he showed up promptly and fully prepared to replace a fence on the side of the house that was a mess. He as well replaced some insulation on ducting in the attic. The biggest job he did there was to epoxy the whole inside of the swimming pool it looks beautiful. He finished quickly all the jobs with excellent work and integrity.

Maria does excellent work. She recently completed a entire gut and modern style bathroom remodel in our home. The remodel required wall to wall tile work, and it turned out beautiful. She has a good eye, and it is easy to communicate what you want done. She is also willing to offer suggestions you may not have thought of before, which has ended up adding a custom and elegant touch to our remodel. Maria has done work in our house before, and we keep asking her back to do more because we trust her, and she is very detail oriented. When we have people over to our house (including other contractors) they always comment on the quality of the work done by Maria. Everyone who meets her (including our neighbors) love to snatch her up to do work in their houses as well :-) We were very lucky to have found her. Once again, Maria exceeded our expectations.

My experience with Jordan Box, he is quick to respond, honest, gives realistic estimates based on work to be preformed, knowledgable, professional, and resourcesful. Based on our initial conversation about my project I decided to hire Jordan because it is apparent that he takes great pride in his work and will treat your project as if he was building it at his own home. I am happy I hired Jordan to do my bathroom remodel and looking forward to the next project with him as soon as this project is complete.

We were new to this area and wanted a designer which would work well with the architect and contractors we had already hired. Deborah was gracious and delightful to work with. She worked beautifully with everyone and created an absolute haven for us. Living in Southern California along the Gold Coast is a beautiful luxury. The finishes, furnishing and accents Deborah suggested are so wonderfully tied together. We are amazed everyday and feel we are in our lovely European resort (where we were traveling). Thank you Deborah for all your gorgeous work and effort to make our home so comfortable and serene. You have been so accommodating and great to work with. We love our home so much! Laguna Beach, CA

Told me two weeks, been out of my home for three already, and not even near complete. They had ONE worker there all week just doing flooring. Paid them 35k already and they’re working on other jobs (on my dime) while my home is left gutted and unliveable. Imagine being out of your home with two dogs and having contractors who don’t care to help you return fast. That’s how it feels... and it’s the worst feeling EVER! Have worked with so many contractors and never felt so deceived in my life. They were amazing until I paid them the second payment after the first week. As soon as they asked me for more money and I agreed, it all changed. Attitudes, responses, desire to please, dedication... all gone ever since they can’t my money in hand. It feels like fraud even though I’m trying hard to not believe that.

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.

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.
