I hired Tim to install exterior window shutters after my original shutters were damaged in the rain. Tim was quick to respond to all messages and the project was scheduled that same week. Tim showed up at the scheduled time and completed the project in a timely manner. My new window shutters turned out great and I would hire Tim in the future for my handyman projects.

I hired this service for a deep clean. The price was right. Mona worked for hours cleaning my apartment top to bottom. An incredibly hard working lady, she did a thorough and excellent job which included floor to ceiling mirrors and sliding glass doors, other windows, wood cabinetry, large surface areas and laminate flooring. It was definitely a 2 person job. The reason for 4 stars is that the logistics were off. This is an Orange county based business. I live in the south bay. I needed help during the week. I was told 2 people were coming. Traffic is terrible during the week and I am far from the freeways. Getting another person out to help Mona didn't work out because the other lady was in Orange county and couldn't get to me. If you live closer to their major service areas, definitely hire these folks, but not situated well for south bay residents late in the day.

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.

Frank was very competent and did a fantastic job on updating my bathroom at a very reasonable cost. Everything he did looked so professional. It took him a couple of days and I was so pleased I had him paint the bedroom as well and plan to have him return to paint all the doors in my house. He was very reliable (one of my biggest requirements) and knowledgeable, even fixing an electrical issue due to damage by earlier workers. Would recommend him to anyone who needs a reliable, professional job done at a very reasonable cost.

Rami Z, the owner and leader of A to Z construction, embodies the best of a true professional. He takes on your project with your best interests as priority and uses his expertise and the commitment to excel and get the job done right. He asks the relevant questions and listens to you so he knows what your looking for. So after 2 month of seemingly never ending demolition for flood damage involving garage, bathroom, bedroom and half the kitchen we wanted to restore what we had before the flood quickly and without my wife and I having to spend a lot of our time and money. He made himself available after hours on a weekend to take our call and meet with us and see to the damage. He gave us an estimate of the cost and the time that it would take to complete. The next day he gave us a contract and the following day his team was already working. (While other contractors either no showed or told us it would be a week before they could give us an estimate and were late on that too—to be fair the season did have near record rain and cold, but in the meanwhile we were in a drafty house, with family displaced from the bedroom, without use of the kitchen sink. His contract did turn out to be 20-30% less than a couple of others when they finally did come in, and it was his professionalism and ability to ask questions and listen that probably saved us time and money—we got excellent quality work for a good price.). Rami works with our best interest in mind and that saved us time and money several times during the project. For example he discovered that the knobs on the doors left by the demolition team could be used on the new cabinets. When the rain came he added a small segment to the gutter drain outside to keep water away from the house that wasn’t in the contract, he didn’t charge for it, he just did it and he may well have prevented a second flood. That speaks to Rami’s quality of character, I only stopped by a couple of times during the project and met some of the A to Z team. It was obvious they were trustwory and Rami was in charge and taking full responsibility. He listened to our needs. He knew we needed to have use of the kitchen as soon as possible so he put together a temporary plywood counter so we could use the sink while he found granite to match the granite from the others side which had been in style for 40 years and kept the work on the flooring and walling the bedroom. He did find a good match and his team also matched the painting—no one could see that have our kitchen had been demolished. It’s hard to imagine how difficult the job appeared with bear wood beam on the lower half of what had been the wall between the garage and bedroom, the ditch where the toilet had been, bear pipes located the site, beams and dirt floor, smashed granite kitchen countertop. We needed an expert we could trust and that is Rami from A to Z. Ronald from LA

One of the most professional companies we could possibly work with… they were able to come out and spend over 3 hours assessing the damage before even quoting us. They ended up helping us have insurance cover the entire project. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Mr. Curtis showed up on time and was ready to jump right in. We talked in detail about what we needed and what we would like to have done for our reconstruction and remodeling requests and ultimately what was possible within our budget and time frame. Mr. Curtis and his crew not only helped us restore our home to it original state after water damage destroyed 1/3rd of our downstairs area, they also surveyed the damaged areas and improved upon the existing subfloor areas, provided drywall, tape, and mud. They included custom plumbing services and finished out with remodeling work as per our requests in both the kitchen and bathroom. All the services provided were accomplished professionally with punctuality, great friendly service, and all within the budget we discussed. We only scratched the surface of the scope of services provided by Curtis Construction Services due to our own personal budget and needs. All in all, My wife and I were very pleased with everything done by Curtis Construction Services and gladly recommend them to anyone.

Everyone on the team was the epitome of professionalism. They explained the process..had me view the damage via camera before starting any work. Due to the inconvenience of not having a working toilet..they expedited the repair..completing a major repair (where I had been given a 3 day timeline by other companies) to 12 hours! All this was done at a very competitive price. I will NEVER use another plumbing company..

I honestly could not be happier with the experience I had with this company. I hired P.B. Contracting to do 2 bathroom remodels and repair some drywall and framing that had sustained a lot of water damage from a busted pipe in one of the said bathrooms. They were professional, punctual and paid great attention to detail throughout the entire length of the project. They always cleaned up after themselves each day, couldn't even tell they had been there :). Overall, I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the job and will continue to recommend them to anyone I know who needs any type of home improvement work or repairs.

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!

I've had the team at WDZ and BAB help us extensively. When we found a significant amount of water damage and mold underneath the kitchen of our new home, we were devastated. WDZ and BAB walked us through the process and took care of any and all issues. We were so impressed with their work ethic and professionalism we had them remodel our entire house. Hard to find trustworthy and honest people in construction, especially in LA. I would use them again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a mold remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of identifying and removing unhealthy levels of mold that have colonized in a home, office, school or other building. Over time, if untreated, mold can destroy a home by breaking down cellulose-based materials (like wood or ceiling tiles) and causing a slow and messy decay. In the shorter term, a mold infestation can cause severe health problems. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mold can trigger respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritations, problems with your nervous system, and aches and pains. Mold inspection and mold remediation are often requested in tandem, although they are two separate services. Nationally, mold inspection costs range from $250 to $300. If mold has been positively identified in your house, either by visual examination or through mold testing, remediation can safely remove it. Properly trained and equipped professionals use specialized equipment (like vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filters) to keep mold spores contained while they remove contaminated materials and treat infested areas with antimicrobial spray. A key component to a successful mold remediation after eliminating the mold is ensuring that the water source that caused the mold infestation is also resolved.

How does mold remediation work?

Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

  • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
  • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
  • Remove affected building surfaces.
  • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
  • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
  • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
  • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
  • Perform clearance testing.

Remove containment materials.

How is a mold test done?

Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

  • Swab testing: $200-$300
    • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
  • Air cell testing: $250-$350
    • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
  • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

How do you get rid of mold?

Mold is a naturally occurring and important part of our ecosystem. That said, excessive mold can actually be hazardous to your health. Mold remediation is usually the best strategy to get rid of unhealthy levels of mold in your home or office. If you’re not comfortable working with mold or the area is larger than 10 square feet (3 feet by 3 feet), it is highly recommended to hire a mold remediation professional to resolve the problem. However, if you’re DIY-savvy, don’t have any health risks, and are not freaked out by mold, the EPA gives homeowners the greenlight to clean mold areas that are less than 10 square feet. Here are some EPA-recommended DIY cleaning tips:

  • Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely.
  • Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
  • Throw away absorbent or porous materials (like ceiling tiles and carpet) if they become moldy.
  • Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.
  • Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Clean up the mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
  • If you are unsure about how to clean an item (art, fine furniture, etc.) consult a reputable specialist affiliated with a professional organization in their field.

Is mold damage covered by insurance?

Mold damage may or may not be covered by your homeowner's insurance. Mold damage is caused by standing water and excess moisture. Mold damage can be covered by insurance when an item already covered under your homeowners insurance breaks accidentally — for example, if your plumbing suddenly ruptures and water floods your house, the homeowners insurance will cover part or all of the costs for the plumbing repair and any mold remediation costs necessary as a direct result of the water damage.

But you may not be able to get insurance to pay for your mold remediation costs if the damage is a result of your neglect — for example, if you’ve had a slow leak under your bathroom sink for years and have ignored the issue. If the insurer can determine that the mold damage is a result of your negligence, they likely won’t cover mold remediation costs. Also, most homeowners insurance will usually not cover mold remediation costs after a flood unless you have a special insurance rider covering your home in case of a flood. To help prevent mold damage, always keep humidity levels in your house between 30 percent and 60 percent, clean up water spills and damp areas right away, and ensure you have exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathroom.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
