We hired South Bay Builders to do a residing job on our free standing / 75 year old garage. Justin gave us an competitive bid, he and his crew did excellent work and he finished early. On top of this Justin went the extra mile by tracking down the wide shiplap siding that matches the rest of our vintage look at no extra cost. This was a very pleasant surprise because after chatting with many contractors we were willing to settle for what is more commonly available today. When Justinn said he would try, I assumed it was unavailable and we would have to settle. I can count on one hand the number of times I have been pleasantly surprised on a project like this one - so I can absolutely recommend South Bay Builders!

I recently purchased a home and had numerous remodeling projects. Osbaldo repainted the interior of my house, installed crown molding, installed new bedroom doors, remodeled the bathroom, converted my dryer hookup to gas, remodeled my closets and installed granite and back-splash in the kitchen. Osbaldo is a good, trustworthy person. He is a hard worker and takes the time to make sure the job is done right. He really has a good eye for what looks nice in a home and had great remodeling suggestions. Plus, his prices are very fair. I will definitely be using him again for any more work I need on the house!

Dave and Denise are a pleasure to work with. They've gone out of their way to make the process stress free, fun and exciting. Not only do they help design everything they will go pick it all up for you and bring it back to your house so you don't have to do any of the shopping! They'll go with you to Home Depot or Lowe's and help you figure things out and design it with you too! They are the most patient people I know as well. I changed my mind so many times that I'm sure I was driving them nuts but they kept a smile on their faces and accommodated me every time! They come in quietly, they leave quietly and it's spotless inbetween all the renovations! Dave also did extra things like put in a light and my curtain rod for a small fee :)! You can tell that Dave takes pride in his craft and is an expert at what he does... He's a perfectionist! I am in love with my newly renovated bathroom and now we're onto the half bath so stay tuned! If you want a fantastic contractor and team hire Dave and Denise you won't be disappointed!

MIM renovated our iconic mid century modern house and the result is stunning as Meir Manor and his crew brought this first owner neglected 1953 built jewel back to its original state, if not even beyond. MIM is a very reliable company and you will get a contractor who stands to his word, something that is rare in Los Angeles - and after scanning the market for a quite a while. We meet with several other contractors that had no idea how to tackle this demanding project. That said, my wife and I are very happy with MIM and the result - we LOVE our new house - and can highly recommend Meir and his team.

Tile job done nicely, very good result. Just need to reschedule 3 times, the last time at the last minute, but to be fair this type of job has always last minute changes because of other customers. I will reengage this contractor.

We offer interior and exterior repairs and renovations. There is no limit to the size of the work. We will come out to offer a free estimate. Thank you.


I am not sure If I do a better job or note. I can honestly state, ''I promise to do my best and insure both you and I are happy. See the bottom line here is, '' I'm here to make a living, I love what I do. Plus I care.'' You might be looking for this, or you might be looking for ''just someone to fix it cheaper'' I love being a business owner and I have a passion and a strong biblical foundation for doing the right thing


My favorite part of when I'm done with the work is to feel and see what a good impact a helping hand can do for family's.


I do exactly what my customer wants to the best of my ability no question unanswered or un asked

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.
