Chris helped us out on a huge yard cleanup weeding project at our rental property and we were so pleased we had him do a tree trimming yard cleanup at our house. He also helped us haul out an old bathtub and took other items to dump. He was always on time, helpful, reasonably priced, responsible, excellent service. Definitely will call him again as needed.

Houman did an excellent job rewiring my old 1923 house! Some of the wiring was knob & tube, some was newer but still not up to modern standards. Houman rewired the whole house within the stated time frame (which was pretty fast) and he stuck to the agreed price (which was very reasonable). He communicated well and gave me options for what light fixtures/switches/etc I wanted. I would definitely hire him again and 100% recommend him to others.

Gus pretty much saved our kitchen remodel by finishing off all the stuff left by the other guys. He did all the baseboard and finished the painting, caulking, placing top cap and trim where it needed it took too many cuts and corners for the first guy. What a great way to finish off a three month half house remodel with a guy like Gus to frost the cake, My wife and I couldn't be happier.Thank You

I have a few rental houses, I can always depend on David to give me quality work and a fair price. What I appreciate most is his diversity, it is rare to find an individual that I would trust in my personal home as well as my rentals. I need to rely on someone who can do many things, electrical, plumbing, drywall, building decks, & roofing you name it he can do it. I've had a working relationship with David for over 20 years. He does a great job! I've posted a large tile job he did for me a few years back and it still is in Great shape. David laid a wood floor in my home as well. I've received many compliments on how beautiful it is. Strongly recommend him!

We had some damaged floor that needed removal. The crew took care of that very quickly. The rest of the house we had the floors sanded and refinished. Quite a big job.The crew was professional, clean and worked quickly. Quickly was the key element here. We had a cash buyer and a window of 5 days to complete. Golden Oaks satisfied on every level. I recommend them highly.

Jason came out to my house on time. He was very thorough in his estimate with all of the plans that we had for both yards. Him and his crew were on time and professional the whole time. He trimmed my two trees, built a fantastic deck and laid pavers throughout the back yard. In the front yard he built a retaining wall with two columns, laid artificial turf and built me a raised planter bed. I am absolutely in love with how my yards look! I will continue to use JSJ Services for my tree trimming in the future. And I will recommend him and his crew to all my neighbors. Thank you JSJ!

He did a better than average job and did it in a very timely fashion. The three things that I was disappointed about were, no clean up after job was complete, didn't cover the appliances in kitchen and he still has the key to my property.

Jordan as a person was very nice. His inital follow up was prompt and he spoke very highly of his attention to detail. As a first time homeowner, I know little about construction and heavily rely on the expert knowledge of others to assist with our remodel. We hired Jordan after meeting three other contractors based solely on our interaction with him. When we originally had Jordan out to our house it was for a flooring quote only. Jordan explained he also preformed landscaping work on the side so we added that to our list. Jordan did an amazing job installing the floors! The entire dynamic of the house changed because of the floors. I was very disappointed in a few other areas which is the reason for 4 stars. We do not currently live in the house although we do have a few items in place for weekend visits. Towards the end of the job Jordan said that they were mostly finished so I had gone to check out the progress. The tile work in both bathrooms is crooked. The master bath is very noticeable. In addition, my bedding was covered in dust and they had smeared grout into the carpet in my bedroom. There was also sloppy grouting and caulking done in several areas of my home. To add insult to injury his crew decided it was ok to help themselves to my kids popcicles - this actually upset me just asuch as the tile floor. Giving credit where it is due: Jordan and Tim did have my carpets cleaned, my bedding dry cleaned and I was given the option to have them rip up the bathroom floor or receive a discount from my final bill. Jordan did offer to replace the missing popcicles as well although that never did happen. The landscape looks nice as well but we asked to keep the remaining turf and that also didn't happen. I asked jordan about it and he said what was salvageable was in our shed - it wasnt. Again, I was very happy with the floors but the other items make it hard to say if I would rehire for additional projects. Nice guy but I didn't feel like our home was cared for in the way he said it would be. If you do decide to hire Jordan my recommendations would be: 1. Get a detailed breakdown of the work 2. Notate about the use of your personal items (they completely filled up both our garbage cans) 3. Inspect. Inspect. Inspect. Check every corner.

I found Chris when I was given one of his fliers by a friend who raved about his work. I only deal with licensed contractors, since I've been burned before and there's little recourse when they disappear or change their phone#, plus eventually I have a lot of work I want to get done and I want it all legit in case I need permits,etc... And licenses tell me a person has made the effort to put his time in, learn a trade, and become licensed. It's cost me more money to fix things that have been done sub-par over the years. The paint on my house trim was peeling and I could see the wood was becoming damaged in some areas, which means more money to fix rotted wood, so I was anxious to get the exterior paint done. I shopped around. Chris gave me a fair estimate, plus he was confident in his work and I saw the results at my neighbor's house. I loved that he was very respectful of my house, my yard, clean up, and his work was so clean! He gave me a head's up that some of the wood may be more damaged once he sanded the old paint. He showed me the damaged wood and gave me the option to fix it or not, which of course needed to be done. He replaced some old window sills and window frames. You can't even tell which ones he replaced! Everything matches the other windows! I couldn't be more pleased. After a few weeks I saved some money and was still so excited about the outside of my house finally getting done right that I decided to get some work done in the bathroom. My house is 90 yrs old, the interior walls have plaster not drywall, which many guys don't want to touch, but Chris said "No problem!" it's one of his specialities. He explained what's involved, wrote an estimate, and now I've got one bathroom done and it looks AWESOME! My husband is impressed. We're going to have a dinner party with friends to celebrate. Chris is a solid guy with good old fashioned work ethic. We have only great things to say about his work! After the new year we're going to save money and have a deck built so my husband can barbecue outdoors. Thumbs up times a hundred!

When we bought our new house I remembered we asked Frank to come over and give me a quote. The quote was great and Frank was able to get to work quickly replacing the old floors in the Living room and entryway. Frank was fast professional and most importantly the new floors look amazing! We get complements all of the time from our friends and family who come over. I would definitely use them again.

Manny or his people were always on time and professional. He explained what needed to be done and talked about heat treatments verses tenting. His crew has able to take care of the repairs to the house as well as rid us of our termites. I would highly recommend his services.

Larry of Elite Builders was one of four that came out to give us a quote on our 107' x 5' wood fence. He gave us a reasonable quote and a great time frame to complete the job. We had a request that he was able to fulfill which was a big help. Yes, we would use Elite Builders again.

I brought my first investment property for $360,000 and I had a $40,000 budget to spend to flip the house. I was referred to Rudy's Home Improvement by Russell Walker from Keller Williams Realty. Russell said Rudy has been flipping houses for him for about 20 years, I contacted Rudy told him what my budget was and I really need to stick to it. He discussed with me my options and then proceeded to do the work. His work was done in a timely fashion. He worked on my house for about 5 weeks and he stuck to the budget. When he was done my house set on the market for about 2 weeks and it was sold for $475,000. Now I'm working on getting my next investment property. THANKS TO RUDY'S HOME IMPROVEMENTS TWO THUMBS UP! Thanks alot Rudy!!

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
