Fantastic work. Always punctual, took great care to protect areas that weren't impacted by the construction (such as keeping dust out of other rooms). Did great work.

Gleo assisted with multiple projects to prep my home for sale. With little over 2 weeks to get repairs and enhancements completed, Gleo responded in a timely manner and dropped by to assess the job. I own an older condo with pretty outdated systems - doorbell mechanism, ceiling fan/light remote fixtures and AC. Thus, it was challenging trying to find out how things were connected and installed and where they were located. Gleo had to do a lot of extra research and testing to find the source of the issues. He accomplished this all through diligence, skill and the desire to do a good job. I was very pleased with the results stemming from the repairs he made. From start to finish, Gleo gave me the full confidence that he would go above and beyond to get the job done. His pricing for services are beyond fair despite the fact that spent multiple evenings and hours to perfect and fulfill the required services. Not only will you find a skilled, professional contractor but a fair, good-natured individual with a heart of gold. Thank you, Gleo!!!

Renato of Hilux Maintenance did a terrific job on my project. He was flexible when we changed focus and added to the project scope. His prices are quite reasonable. His work is excellent. And he is great about showing up on time and returning phone calls which is important to me. He did a great job we had him do another project for our rental property! Highly recommended.

Gerardo replaced both mine and my neighbor's water heaters in our condo. We had a unique situation with the configuration and size of our units, and Gerardo was able to identify a solution for us when two previous plumbers could not complete the work. The installation was done exactly as he had scoped, and Gerardo was incredibly helpful in helping us understand our choices to replace the units. I couldn't be happier with the job, and I highly, highly recommend Gerardo if you are in need of plumbing services. Thanks again, Gerardo!

In all of my years of property management I have never had a better cleaning service. Pedro is a consummate professional who really takes pride in his work. He is very flexible and usually available at a moments notice. He is very honest with his pricing and in fact I have told him on several occasions that he needs to raise his prices because his pricing is on average 35% lower than his competitors. I am fortunate to have a vendor like Pedro that I can count on.

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.

I'm very satisfied with the job that ARC did on the restoration project under my house. We had a main line sewage spill that needed immediate action. I spoke with Nina and she was very supportave over the phone. She explained what I should expect when talking with Insurance, and what the restoration process would entail. Arc came out the next morning to give a quote and started work immediately. The technician Sam was efficient, thorough and professional. They had the mess cleaned up within a few hours. I would recommend using this company for any restoration project.

I am highly recommending the service of Shaz Construction Company. Shaz is ideal contractor to work with. Shaz made sure the quality of work, kept on schedule and followed our cost and design specifications. Shaz efficiently overcomes obstacles and works diligently with city inspectors, and architects to make sure the project goes smoothly. The result is a truly beautiful building. It was a pleasure to work with Shaz and his staff. He stated from the start that he is committed to his projects, and has never backed down from that promise.

I had long list for fixing decks and sidings for thirty year old my house. When I called MSC construction, Charlie and Sarah came within a day for an estimate. The estimate was for multiple sections with each price. I paid when each section was fixed. We had few change orders that weren’t found in initial estimate. Whole cost was very competitive with others’ estimates so we chose MSC construction. Charlie and one worker spend almost six days in a row (9 AM to 5 PM) fixing all issues of the list. I liked his professional works on fixing decks, sidings and all fixes were well done. Communication was straight forward and quick, so I and my wife were happy from very first call and up to the completing the work. I would recommend MSC construction if you need fixes for your property.

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.  

How is a mold test done?

Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

  • Swab testing: $200-$300
    • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
  • Air cell testing: $250-$350
    • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
  • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

How does mold remediation work?

Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

  • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
  • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
  • Remove affected building surfaces.
  • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
  • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
  • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
  • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
  • Perform clearance testing.

Remove containment materials.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.
