Rating: 10/10 I had requested 2 sofa's to be picked up and be taken to the dump! One sofa was a large sleeper "L" shaped sectional and the second sofa was a studio sized "L" shaped sectional. Mr. Loera was extremely professional and responded quickly even though I am a night owl and was corresponding late at night. He was able to fit me in-in his schedule and Not only did he arrive on time but he was even a little early. Mr. Loera was very polite and nonthreatening. Easy to approach and got right to work. He wasn't pushy or try to change the price we agreed upon last minute. I would definitely Mr. Loera & James R Loera Construction; to any single females that need help moving things or to anyone looking for a reputable and trustworthy professional. I will definitely be calling Mr. Loera for future projects!

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.

We hired Excel Construction (Eyal) to completely remodeling our kitchen and to design and build a large wet bar. The remodeling job that they did included the demolition of the existing spaces, the removal of several existing walls, rewiring of some electrical outlets and switches, re-plumbing the new spaces, remove and install new flooring, new upper and lower cabinets, install new marble countertops, installing new lighting fixtures, fresh interior paint, some drywall repairs and adding a new large island at the kitchen. Eyal and his working crew did a stunning remodeling job. Eyal create for us a complete design of the work based on what we wanted and needed, guided us through some space limitations of the house and presented to us some different ideas that met our needs. The remodeling job was delivered on time, within budget and with high quality. Eyal was at the house every day and made sure that the remodeling progress is on track. He was there for each and every step of the work, which was extremely important to us. We highly recommend them for anyone who is searching for high quality remodeling or construction work.

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!

Joey was very understanding of the small job/low budget where other contractors were quoting 2-3x. He had one of his men, Milan, come and install cork underlay with click hardwood. Initially I was quoted $350, but it became $400 upon arrival - not a big deal, but something to consider if you’re shoestring and ran out of money on a build as I did. Milan did a pretty great job overall, very friendly and speedy. In this circumstance precision near the walls didn’t concern me as I built floor to ceiling acoustic panels, however I was a bit concerned about the lack of spacers and some not so “straight” cuts. Also, there was a misunderstanding regarding the threshold and the point the floor was to be brought up to. Luckily, after some schedule conflict, Joey was able to get him back out to correct the mistake. Overall the floor looks great, feel solid thus far, no bowing or splits, so I think it’ll hold up. The floor style itself looks spectacular. Overall I’d give them a B+

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'm glad the original contractor (Joe) never showed up for the job 8am per appointment (we cleared the garage and put everything in the yard out in the open ready foe Joe. You can just image how frustrated we were when the contractor did not show up or even call by 4pm). Mario from Creative responded to my online search and start working that very evening. Mario went the extra mile preparing before applying the epoxy paint on the garage floor. It was all completed the very next day. First class workmanship. While we waiting for the floor to dry. We already scheduled for Mario to come back next week to start working on the driveway. Two thumbs up highly recommended. D 9/9/2016

I had a GREAT experience with Daniel from World Class Construction! I did not know him before, but he is now my "go to " guy. I had a smaller but very difficult job with some drainage issues and he came up with good suggestions on a repair and his cost and service were great. Also had some additional drywall work done and he was also very fair and competitive. Daniel was also very professional in every aspect, from the contract to finshing the work.

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.

George and Patricia are a great team that made it happen from the beginning. They put us at ease and their bid was more than fair and very competitive. Mairi and Eddie checked in regularly and were always professional and punctual. Javier and Benjamin worked incredibly hard and stayed at the job site for hours to try and make sure that our house was not under construction for an extended period of time. Pleased with it all.

Had so many bad experiences with so many contractors until I finally found ABC. Joe, the guy who manages the project, is truly a sweetheart! While the job was not all smooth sailing, and is not even over yet, he takes the hassle and the stress of home reno off of your shoulders and makes it instead a wonderful experience. Happy with the outcome thus far, and truly grateful to have found Joe! He is the best out there! Simply A+ for everything!

Edgar and his crew were pretty amazing and thorough. High quality work with great communication along the way. Our new deck is beautiful. Would definitely hire this contractor again and highly recommend this company. Quality company with an innovative approach. Was sold on the day he came out to do the estimate. By the end of the day I received not only a competitive bid, but a rendering of the proposed construction.

I was looking for a long time for the right contractor to remodel my mother’s home, after meeting with 5 contractors, I decided to go with Smart Construction Consultants. Ron helped me with budgeting and were able to come with great ideas that actually save on the overall cost. The work included update all the house lighting, rewire and new 200 Amp main electrical panel with complete interior painting of the home. The guys were very respectful to my Mom and her home, they always came on time and even finished the project a week earlier than expected without compromising the quality of the work! I highly recommend working with the great team of Smart Construction Consultants

This letter will serve as a highly recommendation for the service that La Roca Builder did for us, on our new home construction. They have a great team that took care of all the guess work of home construction. They made sure we we’re always informed on how the city works with submitting plans and time frame of completion. We interviewed many contractors, but most of them couldn’t take care of the entire project and that’s why we hired them. Our home looks beautiful and we owe it all to Christian and his team from LA Rocca Builders not to mentioned J Balian Construction and Grandeur Construction, 3 teams, each team took care of different aspects of the projects all under one Roof; they all work together amazing! we love that they took care of it all, that made our new home build possible. 5 stars all the way Eddie Steeples Pacific Palisades P.S they wanted me to include that I was the actor that was on the show “My Name is Earl” aka “Crabman” And I gladly said yes,lol. Thanks Christian!

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!

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.
