Jose came out and did a fantastic job. I've been remodeling homes for a long time, and have worked with many contractors, and he is one of the better ones I've worked with.

If I could select 5 areas instead of just 3 that I liked about Dave, I would! If you have the opportunity to hire Dave, consider yourself lucky. You’ll feel completely at ease that your project will happen on time and on budget with good communication. And having been a builder hiring and managing contractors for some 10 years on and off...this kind of contractor is rare. I first hired Dave to install the 22 windows in my new construction project. That went extremely well. Then I hired him to paint the house. I wasn’t ready as scheduled and he handled it professionally with understanding. We started 2 days later and he hit it hard. Then I hired him to complete the drywall, mud and tape for 1000sf. Those walls are perfectly texture...straight corners. Then he tiled a bathroom with 2’ x 6” tiles and adjoining pebble stone mesh tile. IT IS PERFECT. When the last task was taking longer than expected, Dave’s wife and son jumped in and worked until 11pm to finish when promised. As I say, if you’re reading this then count yourself lucky to have happened across Dave.

Carlos's team that came to do the drywall repair and texturing are skilled, fast and friendly. Carlos was very responsive to my call, came out and gave me what I considered to be a very reasonable price. The quality of the work exceeded my expectations. My experience with Contemporary Design Builders was wonderful and I would highly recommend their services.

I am the Art Director involved with the opening of the Detox Lounge in downtown San Diego. I worked with Cheryl on the interior design features. Her design aesthetic is first-rate and her knowledge of how to bring different materials together for an extraordinary end product is superb. Not only does she have superior design skills, but the construction knowledge to assure that beautiful remodels and buildouts can practically be brought to fruition within budget. She's a designer with a contractor's license and I've seen her work with tradesmen and crews onsite... she's definitely THE LEADER making sure the job is getting done correctly because she knows how it should be done!

We had Coggins Construction install crown molding in our home. Patrick was very professional throughout the entire process and satisfactorily completed the project under the initial price quote, which was already extemely reasonable. He actually listened to what we wanted and was respectful of our house-things that previous contractors neglected. We would recommend Patrick's services to anyone.

So Luke is really amazing. His 1 noticeable flaw may be that he's too humble. He's professional, attentive, thorough, clean, quick, polite, encouraging, creative, gets the job done quickly and right the first time... like you'd believe someone who owns a business would conduct their business. He's also strong: he carried my oven down to my garage before I knew it was happening: my neighbor told me "Wow." (that's how fast he works!) He's intelligent and funny without being so chatty you wonder when he's going to get to work since you're paying him hourly... he's worth every dollar and more, truly even more: by hiring Luke Carr YOU can help improve this world of ours. How? Because Luke doesn't just help homeowners, he's helping others on a much broader scope! Call him for whatever you need. He can do anything from floors to ceilings and when you talk to him, ask him about Africa. There is more I'd like to do here in my home. I know when it's time to call a professional I'll be calling on Luke Carr. He's That Good. Outstanding is an understatement.

I was so fortunate to work with Kory & Keith -Madison Design for my condo renovation. They managed every step of the process so I didn’t have to worry. They gave me time to make decisions, but paced things along so the project could finish on schedule. Kory’s design plans for my kitchen and bathrooms turned out exactly as I had hoped. Keith & Kory are hands on contractors. The quality of their work is excellent and I will use them again in a future project.

Martin and his crew did great work for us. They were professional and friendly. We originally had them give us a bid just to remove popcorn ceiling and repair some drywall, but we ended up hiring them to do lots more work - everything from installing can lighting with new electrical lines to installing new vinyl windows.

Amazing results. As with all construction there is always something that comes up. Because our home is old and the previous owners did a lot of DIY projects we expected more than one hiccup. We were informed every step of the way of all items and schedule. We rarely had questions and when we dos they were always answers within a couple of hours. Lia and Ronan are both amazing and I can't wait till we work with them again in our next project.

When we finally decided to upgrade and make improvements to our home the best decision we made was to go with WE Heuslein. Buddy and everyone that works for/with him are fantastic. From the floor installers to the window installers to the dry wall guys to the painter to the electrician, everyone was always very courteous and professional. They arrived every morning as scheduled and were always ready to start their day and get as much accomplished as possible. And if I changed my mind about a plan or detail, they made the necessary adjustments and made sure I was happy with the final outcome. I could not be happier with how all our renovations turned out. I would recommend WE Heuslein for any home projects you are considering. They can handle it all from hanging a new door to a whole new addition or anything else you can imagine you might want done. And I know this first hand because I asked them to do a lot of different jobs that weren't even originally discussed. I completely trust them to get the job done right. WE Heuslein is the best.

    I hired AP Contracting to do a major renovation on a rental unit. My tenant had lived in this unit for approximately 20 years and the unit was in need of some major work. I called AP Contracting and scheduled an estimate. Anthony showed up on time and we walked the entire unit. I had ideas of what needed to be done and Anthony made some serious suggestions which I also agreed to. I told him that I also had a budget that I needed to stay within. The next day Anthony provided me with a written estimate and a price which was about $3300 less than I had budgeted and this included his additional suggestions, I was impressed. I was more impressed when his crew arrived the next day and the work began. I did a complete renovation, cabinets, carpets, took down the aged popcorn ceiling, painted, replaced the tub and shower, tiled the floors in the bathrooms, painted the entire unit and put in new carpeting. Anthony suggested replacement of the sliding glass doors and a few windows and the replacement of the garage door, which had a broken spring. This entire job took them 13 days start to finish. Now I am not one to do social media reviews but I was asked to review AP Contracting as a former customer. I do not think I am a former customer as I am in the process of having Anthony work on the 4th of my rentals as I write, I have always been one to worry about shady contractors, but I am glad I found AP Contracting and would recommend them to anybody.

    I'm starting to believe there's nothing Marroquin Construction Corp can't do. Where to begin... they were my general contractor for a major renovation of our 1919 historic home. They've installed exhaust fans, mounted television sets, hung cabinets in the garage, created a beautiful outdoor living space, fixed lath and plaster, repaired electrical, ran network cable throughout the house, replaced light fixtures, re-stuccoed the entire house, poured stamped cement, built an outdoor grill area, ran gas lines to an outdoor fire pit, laid intricate tile for a fountain and shower ... the list goes on and on. Robin Marroquin has been working on my home for 15 years. His employees are neat, prompt, knowledgeable, and polite. You can tell a lot about a contractor by his trucks. They are clean and organized. I would highly recommend this company for ANY of your house repairs/improvements/remodel projects.

      Zak from Zapara and Sons is fantastic from start to finish! I was very hesitant to allow a new contractor into my PB home in order to remodel our kitchen. My wife had been on me for some time trying to make some changes to our cabinets, and also building a new island for guests. Zak was fantastic right from the beginning. He quickly put my mind at ease with his caring questions and detailed explanation of what needed to be done, materials needed etc.... I could not have had a better experience! It's truly something to find a craftsman who will treat your home like theirs as they do their work. I'm so thankful to Zapara and Sons and will 100% be using them for all our future home remodel and renovation needs!

        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.

        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.
