Roger has been working on a couple projects for me and goes above and beyond! He is a perfectionist that cares so much about the quality of his work, and I am pretty picky and nervous when hiring someone new and he has done an amazing job. He also is very reasonable and does not try to take advantage (which is hard to find after having done a good amount of searching and talking to different people for quotes). Also is super knowledgeable and gave me advice/helped me with other items around the house that were completely unrelated to the project I had hired him for. Highly highly recommend!

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.

We hired Excel Construction to do a complete kitchen remodeling and enlarge the existing space by expanding the walls several feet to the patio area. The new kitchen included the installation of the upper and lower cabinets, new paint, new backsplash, marble counter top, LED lighting and new dishwasher, stove and range. Eyal, the project manager and Revital (the lady that we worked with in regards to all the documents, payments and permits) from the office who did an outstanding job helping us. During the work, we clearly noticed that they were always made sure that the costs will remain the same and won’t pass the budget that was set at first and they made sure the job was done accurately. All the sub-contractors that they employed for our house (carpenters, electricians, painters etc.) were outstanding, qualified and experienced. We were very fascinated that our project Eyal was able to complete the entire kitchen few days earlier than he promised us. We were always given a personal attention by Eyal, who was very good in communication and organized and by Revital. The new kitchen looks perfect and very useful and we strongly recommend them and we will hire them again for any remodeling project we may have.

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.

American Castles Mike To the RESCUE!!! The water heater at my rental property burst on a Friday afternoon causing some major damage to the house. The renters were furious because their items got damaged and the house wasn't inhabitable after that. On the inside, the bathroom wall and under stairway closet were all soaking wet and drywall/carpet/padding had to be removed immediately to prevent mole build up. On the garage side where the water heater located, the entire wall was destroyed. so I called my home insurance who provided me with their preferred plumber who quoted an additional $540 out of pocket on top of what the insurance was going to cover just so he can bring up the water heater installation to code! He told me that it will take him 1+ week to order the water heater (duh...get one from Home Depot take only 1hr...which is what Mike did) and that he can install a temporary water heater and will charge $137/wk! He also referred me to a water damage restoration company which I was not too happy with either. Since it was an emergency and I went with that company. They came in and ripped out all the wet drywall without caring for any molding; especially for garage doors and closet doors! It seemed like what ever the water heater didn't damage, they did. They also broke my water heater intake shut off valve. damage the water heater over flow copper pipe. All I can say is I will not use them again! Back to the plumber, something was smelling fishy about his quote and so I called and questioned this plumber. His response was "Well, I will need to flush out the gas line and calibrate your water pressure...upgrade to the new California safety quote...put in earthquake straps...install new vent line since the new water heater nowaday don't use the old vent line!". I was not convinces so I started to Google for good local contractor and AMERICAN CASTLES (Mike Tay is the owner) came up from Thumtack along with few others from other websites. I contacted them and they came in and provided me quotes. Mike was the last one I contacted. He arrived within 30min. He checked out the damages and explained to me what needs to get done sequentially to get everything back in proper operation for my tenants. Mike is very knowledgeable and very patient in explaining things. I told him what the plumber had said, he laughed and told me the whole thing was a rip off and a scam! Another crock of bull**** and advised me against it. He told me to call my insurance company to inquire about using other plumber. Sure enough I was offered the "cash out" option which I didn't even know was available. I took that option and went with Mike for the repair. Mike knows how important it is for my tenants to get the hot water running again once the water damage restoration company completed the clean up/dry out the area (took 1 week). As soon as that company removed their equipment, Mike had his crew come in the next day (Saturday) to repair the garage dry wall and finished the installation of the new water heater and brought it up to code on safety on Sunday! He even added the water pan and installed drain pipe for me. I didn't even know such a thing exists (talk about quality...he treats it like repairing his own home!). The best part is his charge for the whole job including new water heater, earthquake straps, valve, drain pan, vent and new connection is far way less than what that plumber was going to charge me. I loved the fact he took the time to show me how things should be done up to code and what works for my situation instead of just giving a price and walking away. He did an awesome job! Unfortunately my landlord insurance's deductible was so high, I asked Mike to give me a quote for fixing the damage in the garage and inside the house. Mike's quote was very competitive and the best part is he is always willing to work with me knowing my situation (thx Mike). My bathroom paint is 16 years old so it was a challenge to match the paint for the new wall. After only quoting me for painting a small wall inside the bathroom, Mike decided on his own to paint the entire bathroom without charging for it. Now that what I call TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK AND STICKING TO YOUR WORD!!! My summary is, Mike successfully completed the entire job and installation in four days. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone and will definitely be using and referring him to everyone I know.

I have used Sean for the fourth time to do my outside lighting. I have been pleased with all the services he has done to my house. He has mounted Tv's for me, ceiling fans and recessed lighting as well and I am very pleased, everything works great. His work is immaculate and very, very reasonable in price! As usual, he has gone above and beyond my expectations with my lighting outside, my home looks BEAUTIFUL and I really love driving up to my house. What better way than to drive up to a beautiful home after a long hard day from work. The way he positioned the lights really accent my yard and home. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! He really does take pride in his work and offer suggestions to make it look nice and he's very honest, very knowledgable. I wanted to add more but his suggestion to accent only certain areas to make it stand out versus what I originally wanted which would have been an overkill to my house with too much light. I think most electricians would just install everything I asked just so that they can make more money without really caring how it would look like, but not Sean he is very honest and I really appreciate the fact that his concern was not about making more money off of me because he could have but that he was throwing ideas and suggestions to make my house look nice! I will forever use him and only him for my current and future services that I will need to get done and I will recommend him to all of my friends and family. Once you find a great technician for any service YOU HAVE TO HOLD ON TO THEM!!! Again I recommend him to all of you who reads this, tell him that Nadia Castro recommended him to you!

Scott installed a ceiling fan so he can def do electrical and installed some custom forged brackets to put up some really heavy found wood planks for shelves. I was really nervous that the brackets wouldn't hold the weight of these planks but he assured me that they would be fine and put in heavy duty anchors (I think that's what he called them). I was super happy with him and his work. A lot of people don't like to work in Dtla but Scott didn't blink an eye about coming down here. He was early if not on time and he even offered to take his shoes off since we are a non-shoes in the house set up!! He cleaned up after himself too. Will definitely recommend!!!

Michael was great to work with: prompt, clear, and honest in his communications; professional and thorough in his work. He really came through on my mom's house, where exterior windows and eaves all around the house (some of them very high off the ground) needed scraping and painting. Perfect timing, fair prices, and high quality work. I would definitely hire him again. Thank you, Michael!

We were able to easily convey everything we wanted to do and they achieved our vision. Joe Cortez worked on our project like he was working on his own house.

Morenos did an excellent job on a really difficult little job. High praise to Ishmael for his communication and matter of fact approach to the project. He was the most reasonable of the several quotes I received, even from a painter that had done work on this house before. I would not hesitate to call him again.

We hired Jeff from Rick Dorn Constrution to install some kitchen cabinets in our remodel. We had cabinets picked out already and he recommended some others of better quality for less. Installation took 2 days and he cleaned up after himself. He also pointed out some other things that should be fixed on our project which was greatly appreciated. We would work with them again.

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.
