We have had several new lights lying around waiting to be installed and Arisel and his co-worker were able to come over within a few days notice and take care of our home projects. They were especially great at dealing with some of the challenges that come with updating an older home. We had new shelving and a light installed in our laundry room (required removal of the previous light and re-positioning of the wiring). Lights also installed in our hallway and outdoor patios along with installation of a new doorbell and trim to our garage exterior. Everything looks good but will require some paint touch up which we plan to diy.

For all of your handywork needs,Chaojun is your man. The BEST and most prompt service I've ever experienced - efficient from start to finish, and clever with finding creative work-around solutions to assembly or repair services where most others would give up. He even helped me put up my Christmas decor, which was above and beyond the requested service. Very trustworthy (enough so to have him work on projects even when I'm not at home), and he will offer realistic advice and consultation if something else needs to be purchased in order to complete your project. I hired him for a large interior re-design project that included complex assembly, mounting, and light electrical work. Would refer him to friends and colleagues without hesitation!

German (pronounced "Herman") was amazing. He installed a circuit in our warehouse, running conduit and pulling wire at 1/2 the cost of another bid. His workmanship is excellent and he and his helper meticulously cleaned up after themselves, including vacuuming any sheet rock dust created when the conduit was screwed into our sheetrock. He accommodated our availability, is honest, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him for any minor or major electrical projects.

Carlos is the man…from inquiring about rates and services to scheduling an appointment to in person meeting this morning (3/10/17), my experience was superb! I needed 2 bedroom sets including mattresses, miscellaneous junk and more junk from my backyard hauled. The rate seemed really affordable so I sent a message to confirm rate. I got a response within minutes. The week leading up to my appointment I was in communication with Carlos to confirm details. My initial appointment was at 10am, but since a pretty much had all my stuff in my living room ready to go, I rescheduled for 8am. The team arrived at 8am, Carlos introduced himself, the team put on shoe covers to protect my carpet (wow, loved that), and got started. The job was complete and they were on their way at 8:45am. If you ever need hauling services or any other restoration work, check out Restoration 1, you won’t be disappointed!

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

Bogdan was a gift. He and his team installed ~2000 SQft of Bamboo Hardwood floors, a marble entry way, tile floor in the laundry room and bath, built a tile shower from scratch, matched and installed granite in a half bath and full guest bath, and repaired several small but important plumbing issues along the way. Bogdan was respectful and considerate of our priorities. He worked with us with patience, always checking in to make sure we were happy with the choices and installation. For example, he was able to create a seamless transition between the tile and hardwood and marble that made a big difference in how the flooring flows- no tripping on t-moulding ! I would happily recommend Bogdan for home improvement projects.

Richard helped me design and remodel some features of my home before selling. Richard has a great eye for design and is able to construct as well. Richard and his team poured a new (black) concrete driveway, built me a new lateral cedar stained fence and painted the exterior of my home navy blue. This lead to a quick sale above asking, Thanks!

Rafael was great- someone recently stole all of his tools, and he still managed to come and help me with numerous projects. All his work is spot on and he works hard to make sure he is doing everything to your specifications. I plan to hire him again for other projects, and I strongly suggest you hire him too!

Mike did a very good job on the project we needed help with. He covered up a hole in the ceiling and was able to leave it to the point where all I did was finish up the ceiling with some paint, which took 20 minutes and some paint. Mike was early and knows his craft. We will definitely use him for upcoming projects. I would reccomend Mike to anyone needing help with home projects. The pictures below are before (a hole in the ceiling) and after.

Johan and his brother did an incredible job on my closet door. He was quick to respond, at our house the next day to provide a quote, and produced high-quality work. He was easy to work with and flexible with scheduling (I mostly texted with him to coordinate). I highly recommend him, and look forward to using his services for future projects.

Our Christmas tree stand sprung a leak and we had huge water damage in our living room. Afik was very knowledgeable about what the potential issues were and gave us various options for mitigation. He also worked with the insurance company, saving me time. I was very happy with his work, and how quickly he responded to us and completed the work.

We had a mess to clean and restore after a fire. There was so much water damage due to the fire department using water to put out the fire. Water Damage Recovery was so fast to respond. They showed up with all the right equipment and handled and cleaned it fast. I found Jose and Maria to be very professional and willing to help in anyway they can.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
