This is my second time hiring David. I had a very good experience working with him before, so I trust him and decided to contact him again. My new project was THE TOTAL GARAGE REMODELING (GARAGE CABINETRY). Project wasn’t easy because we had a limit of time + I wanted to reuse the old cabinets wood to save money. David helped me a lot he did such a big tough work, starting from buying needed things and finishing by cleaning the garage after a done work. There was a little problem working this time - scheduling the time. However, I guess this is because he’s hired by many people. I never get angry when he’s late, because it’s really worth to wait his come. If he comes, he will do the work, do it very good and will finish it! I’m very satisfied with a done work this time too! Thank you David very very much! Also, my first time hiring him was for a project INTERIOR DOOR INSTALLATION David: - made the appointment - discussed the price - cut the door - drilled the doorknob hole - installed the door handle & hinges from the old door into a new one - painted the door Everything was done in one day: quickly, responsibly and efficiently. Excellent work done!

We hired Cruz to trap, proof, and clean up mice and skunk in our crawl space and garage because of all the great reviews on Thumbtack. He just finished the main job and will come back next week to do a final check. We had an extensive problem and he did an excellent job. From the first onsite consultation to all the subsequent visits, Cruz did high quality work, was professional, respected our home, and worked around our schedule. He's also flexible to meet our additional asks: He filled in some holes in our deck foundation where we had seen skunk activity after we asked him; we also just asked him to do some more clean up in one part of the garage and he says he will when he comes back next week. Lastly, he stands by his work; he stressed that if we see any more rodent droppings in the future he will come back.

Ricardo has been great! First he installed our gas dryer. Arrived on time, finished his works quickly and handed over the receipt of materials he picked up at Home Depot. The following week he built a platform in our garage and finished the job quicker than expected. Again clearly detailing his material purchases. Highly recommended!

German is the man !! I should have gone with him first instead of the other electrician that basically tried to rip me off. He replaced 7 old cans with new led cans and now there is light in the kitchen! He even fixed the power to my garage !! In the future I will only call German.

Matthew built two wood platforms for our washer & dryer that required some creativity so that they both fit comfortably within the confines of our garage space. He built solid, well-designed platforms with smooth edges. He was thorough and made a point to double check measurements as well as sought feedback from us as he built the platforms. Also installed an on/off switch for our gas line behind the dryer, which was a relief. Maintained a solid professionalism throughout the entire project as well as showed consistent communication. Would hire again without hesitation!

We had a whole garage and yard full of trash from a recent remodel. Vyron was very pleasant and trustworthy. He was here on time, and not only loaded up all the trash they also swept out the garage and left it spotless. I made sure to get his business card because I will definitely be calling him again. I highly recommend Vyron as he goes above and beyond.

Gerald came the same morning when I contact him. He gave me a pretty reasonable quote for power washing my garage & drive way & put the epoxy paint in the garage. My garage and driveway were totally de face from rebuilding from a fire. Gerald started the next day after our appointment . He came on time, help move my stuff & did his job efficiently . He was supposed to be able to finish the next day with the epoxy paint but I requested one more day for drying time. He was very flexible to accommodate my needs. My garage looks great and his team came back another time to move all my stuff back to the garage. I will definitely recommend Big league painting for efficiency, on time and reasonable pricing.

Pros: Jasper was prompt in responding, punctual, friendly, and completed the work quickly. I was impressed that he finished this project in one day; whereas other contractors seemed to indicate it was more work and more difficult. I would hire him again. Some areas he can improve: There were a couple of minor areas that were knicked on our kitchen island that I didn't notice until cleaning up. Also, I think he could have done a little better cleaning up the island- wiping down the cabinet fronts that had a light layer of dust (I did this myself). Finally, I gave him a box of stain & top coat that the previous owners left to us. He applied them but I noticed they didn't leave the counter shiny, like the finish we had before he sanded. After Jasper left, my husband realized we were missing the water sealant coat which we had in the garage. So now we are applying this coat ourselves to make the island water- proof and give it the same shine. This isn't totally Jasper's fault since I gave him the supplies but I would have liked if he would have noted that something seemed to be missing or off (or given his recommendations on what he would have stained/sealed it with to make sure the wood stayed water proof.) Overall, I'm happy with the work.

We had a two-sided sink installed in our garage. This involved running copper hot and cold water pipes, running a drain to existing pipes, and mounting the sink to a concrete wall. Also ask to caulk/seal all sinks, toilets and bathtubs in the house. Gerardo was very professional and did a great job.

Ricky did a great job adding some additional storage and a workstation in our garage/laundry area, which required re-framing, painting, and some carpentry work. He was easy to work with, a great communicator, able to do the work in a timely manner and we are very happy with the results. We would hire him again and recommend him highly!

I entered a request for an electrician on Saturday afternoon thinking, OK, I probably won't get a response at least until Monday. Well, within five minutes I got a response from Mike Anderson of Anderson Construction. I explained that I wanted to install track lighting in my garage. His price was very fair and he said he could do it the following day which was a Sunday! He worked very clean and efficiently and eliminated of all the old wiring and installed my new lighting. It looks beautiful. I couldn't be happier and I would definitely refer people to him.

Eddie converted our unfinished garage into a guesthouse/playroom. I couldn't have asked for more from a contractor! Not only was his work outstanding, but he is a great communicator, punctual (the job finished exactly on time), and change orders were fair and reasonable. He also had valuable suggestions that I hadn't thought about and he pointed out important details that other contractors missed when the job was bid. I just hope he's available next time I have a project!

Chuck and his team did a great job remodeling our half bath and converting it to a full bath. His team was very polite, responsible, and easy to work with. Chuck was very responsive, walked us through all the steps, and was patient with us as we considered our options for all the bathroom details. I would definitely recommend him to others and we love our new bathroom.

Aldo saved us thousands of dollars! We’ve been battling a mystery leak in my garage on rainy days. Multiple contractors told us it’s our roof and that I’d need to spend the $$$$$ replace it and then wait for the rain to return to confirm the problem was fixed. While we agree that the roof needs to be replaced soon, we were skeptical about having it done immediately. Then Aldo responded to our Thumbnail req. Aldo’s approach was totally different- he suggested a more scientific approach, starting with a thermal camera and a scoping camera. By using both of those devices, he proposed the leak was originating in a window not the roof. After a 15 minute water test he verified his hypothesis with relative certainty. Days after installing a new window the rains returned but the leak didn’t! With the problem solved, Aldo turned immediately to the finishing work- moldings, trims, drywall etc. –the results are beautiful. Having worked with contractors in the past, I know that smaller jobs can linger for long periods, and communication with contractors can be frustrating. It is absolutely NOT the case with Aldo. He’s responsive, transparent (i.e. provided options and the corresponding impact to the original quote), and never out of touch. He sets realistic and reasonable expectations. More importantly, he shows up as promised. We're excited to have him work on a few more projects in the near term. Thank you, Aldo!

Miguel did an awesome job fixing an old "skeleton only" garage to building one that is stronger, roomier and lot more functional than just a plain-old-garage. I would recommend Miguel for other jobs and use his services again for my own projects.

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.

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.  

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.
