Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!

Ricardo is fast, honest, and super reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to hire him again in an instant. I had a couple of plumbing issues that popped up after a renovation, and not only did Ricardo fix them, he even gave me advice on what to do if the issues happen again. Seriously, Ricardo is the best.

German delivered as promised. I was in a jam and needed desperately to finish the project by a certain date. He also had to work around a construction crew which meant coming over early in the evenings a few times. He and his crew were polite, reliable and competent. Highly recommended!

It's hard to express how happy we are with Matt's work. I just can't do it justice in writing. He was honest, reasonable, worked within out budget, kind, and his work was fantastic quality. We are so happy with the final project. We started with an unruly backyard; he tore everything out, created a blank slate and got it ready for turf to be installed. He also built a beautiful deck with lighting and steps. Could not recommend more highly.

We found Salinas home remodeling services most helpful in several ways. Services done for us included electrical wiring, plumbing installation, wall and ceiling painting with texture applications. Also, bathtub, sink and appliance installation. All work was done at high standards. Note: we also experienced generous and positive attitudes from soft spoken professionals, and received on time service. Above all, we have memories of his installation process that are most rewarding. Thank You, Mr. Vyron Salinas and his helper Pablo. Yours truly, Nicholas Adkins

We hired Gustavo to put in a front walkway. We had a very tight budget but wanted it to look good. Gustavo and his team were incredibly responsive and worked really quickly. It was basically finished in one day. We are really happy with the quality of the work and Gustavo's fast response to our questions and requests. It's a beautiful walkway and we are hiring him to do other projects around our yard.

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.

Max is an amazing plumber. He is very knowledgeable, creative in his approach, very dependable, so nice. I can't recommend him enough! He did a huge amount of work for my kitchen remodel and everything worked out great (entirely New plumbing, moved sink, New range hood, added a dishwasher... and more!). I will work with him exclusively moving forward!!

After researching many contractors and companies, my wife and I ended up choosing Eli to completely redo our new home. Our last experience, with our previous house was a disaster so this time we were very picky and took our time choosing a contractor that we thought would be a perfect match with us! There are a few reasons why Eli was more then 100% perfect for us. 1. The cost was right around the cost of the other contractors we met with, who offered us less and did not seem to want to incorporate all our dreams. 2. Eli listened to us and followed exactly what we wanted, and never got tired of listening to us about anything. 3. Eli and his team were professional, clean, and extremely friendly throughout the entire project. 4. Eli only uses top-notch materials, unless otherwise specified, and makes sure to give you the highest quality in every aspect. 5. Eli and his team were amazing from start to finish, easy to talk to and everything was completed on time! There are so many companies and contractors in the area, and the service and professionalism that Eli delivers is far greater then anyone else. Designing and remodeling our home was actually a fun, joyful thing that we absolutely enjoyed because of Eli and his team. This is the best outcome we could have ever dreamed of considering the fact that we were so nervous in the beginning because of our last experience. We are so happy and have already referred Eli to some of our friends because he is just that amazing. We love Eli and his team and recommend him to anyone who wants a pleasant experience with remodeling!

Juan remodeled our unfinished attic space (about 700+ sq ft) from top to bottom and turned it into a new office studio. He laid out the framework, ran electrical wires, put up insulation and drywall, painted and stained, added window trim, installed hardwood flooring and baseboards, and added storage cabinets. He was able to finish our attic in three weeks, and for a very reasonable price. He is a very hard worker, and really creative with his solutions. He always had helpful advice for me when I wasn't sure what decisions to make. He is now our go to contractor when we need work done around the house. I highly recommend him for his work quality, professional etiquette, and ease of communication. I am very happy with the work he is done, and can't wait to work with him again.

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

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!

First of all, Alex did what he said he would do, for the amount he said he would do it for, when he said he would do it. So, that's better than 90% of contractors. Better yet, he is a thoughtful guy who clearly takes a lot of pride in continuing to learn and do a good job; what comes across is that he likes his work and is working to be really good at it. I'll definitely hire Alex again the next time I need work done.

Michael is the most passionate and punctual contractor I have ever worked with! A true, honest partner in your project with broad and deep knowledge of all facets of construction and design. Helped me with a complex condo bathroom renovation project and did an incredible job and really understood out needs and had a roll up your sleeves attitude to meet our really tight timeline that we found ourselves under. Highly recommended!!!

Since completing an extensive renovation project which turned out to be quite unpleasant, I've been more leery of hiring an unknown contractor. With Sergey Asadov of Wise Stage Remodeling, there were no such concerns. The project was replacement of a common fence in a steep/rocky backyard, which required finesse in explaining verbally what the outcome would look like. From initial meeting and followup calls, Sergey was direct, attentive, and easy to communicate with; grasping what was not expressed but understanding the goals of both parties. The contrast could not have been greater nor more pleasant, between the large contracting company and the smaller Wise Stage Remodeling. Concern, care for the project and client, and attention to detail made the whole experience a pleasure. The outcome is lovely, and we are in the beginning stages of a larger retaining wall/fence project which I am confident will be equally as fine. Positive personal relationships are not usually a noticeable attribute when dealing with repairs, renovations ... and messes. This is certainly an exception; additionally there was no trade off whatsoever in the kind, attentive level of workmanship and positive attitude, as well as pride in the level of good work done. Thanks for a Very good outcome, Very good experience, Very good company.

After months of searching for the right contractor to do our remodel of our master bath,we found pacific and the process and the way they handle and do remodels is genius, we just finshed with them about a week ago , and I am beyond happy with the finshed product. Moran and his team kept me informed and involed in the process the whole time , not everything little thing he came to me with , only decision they he knew i would want to make , I selected who i wanted to do the work, i knew everything up front , i wasnt hit with a bill after. Or change orders. and after a bad kitchen refacing( with another company ) that took months and tons of problems , I was kinda scared to countitue , but Pacific gave me my joy back , I will forever be thankful for the time and energy moran put into the project.

We hired Fay and her team to work on our mountain hotel lobby renovation and club house. We were truly impressed by the her team's creative thoughts and efficiency. We hired an architect before them but ISO ideas produces much better quality work and with fast turn around. They were very versatile to address our requests and very friendly professionals to work with. I highly recommend to other business and home owners.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
