We had an excellent experience with Cruz - we'll definitely be reaching out to him again if we ever have any rodent problems in the future. Our problem started on a Wednesday morning - we found a baby mouse in our sink. This we took care of ourselves. On Thursday night, while we were getting ready to sleep, we caught sight of a mouse running into our fireplace, which we quickly barricaded. 5 minutes after that we heard scratching in on the piece of wood that we used to block off the barricade, so we knew it was still in there. 30 minutes later, we saw another mouse run into our kitchen, that's when we blocked off the bottom of the doors around the house. At this point, it means we had at least 3 mice in the house (the baby one in the sink, the one that's trapped in the fireplace, and the one that ran into the kitchen). Friday morning, I went to the hardware store and set up 8 sticky traps baited with peanut butter around the house before work. But, we knew this wasn't enough so we decided to look for a professional. We initially found Cruz on Thumbtack - we contacted him Friday afternoon, and he came to do a free inspection on Saturday - the next day he came over again to patch up a couple problem spots we had inside our unit. After he took care of the problems inside of our unit (fireplace, behind the kitchen sink, behind the toilet), we went around the outside of the house and realized the problem was much larger than we initially thought - one side of the house was pretty much completely exposed at the ground level. Not only were there a myriad of entry/exit points for rodents, we had alot of pipes and also power meters that were in front of these problem spots. Cruz ended up coming up with a pretty elegant solution - he covered everything up. Where we had power meters and valves that would need to be accessible in the future, Cruz and his colleague installed the wire mesh as panels that could be easily removed by unscrewing a few bolts. Ever since Cruz stopped by, we haven't had any more activity, no more droppings and nothing on the traps. Cruz was very easy to work with and gave us a very reasonable rate. He responded quickly, showed up when he said he would, communicated clearly, and effectively rodent-proofed our house. He stopped by yesterday on a follow up visit to check on the traps (nothing yet). I HIGHLY recommend Cruz if you're having any type of rodent issue.

Ricardo was perfect. I needed several odd jobs done around the house. Ricardo showed up exactly when he said he would, had all the right tools, and delivered exactly what I asked for. He stuck with it until the job was 100% done to my satisfaction. I plan to hire him again any time I need a handyman.

Matt was great! Very professional and got our burglar bars removed with no problem. I especially appreciate that he was able to come out on such short notice, and was very fast in communicating. We'll be working with him again on future projects around the house.

Vyron and his team were great. They remodeled a small guest house for us - flooring, ceiling, painting, plumbing, windows, cabinetry. It was a 3 day job. They always showed up on time, worked extremely hard, were professional and pleasant. Vyron is very focused on doing a quality job. He clearly has a lot of experience doing all types of remodeling projects, and offered several valuable suggestions. I would definitely use again.

Jasper did a great job with installing floating shelves in our kitchen and living room. They look like they were intentionally built into the house and fit snugly against the walls and fireplace.

Eli renovated the entire home, electrical, plumbing, exterior interior. Great price and good solid ppl working at the house. Most important for me was that not every unexpected detail that came up would end up in a price negotiation. I would work again with Eli and his team.

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 highly recommend Economy Home Repair, which recently completed a job at our 1910s house in Berkeley including replacement of some rotten siding, installation of two new windows, and painting all on the 2nd floor of the house. We could not be happier with our experience. Signing up with Kris was a no-brainer: his team has stellar reviews, his bid for the job was more than fair, and he arrived on-time for meetings and responded promptly to emails. This was extremely hard work - not the most fun job - and I was particularly impressed that Carl and his team completed the job safely after just 5 consecutive days. Given my prior experience with contractors and jobs that can extend for weeks or longer, it is unusual to get that kind of attention. All the materials were high quality, and I cannot find a single flaw in Carl's workmanship. Overall had a very positive experience, and I'm particularly happy to have found a trustworthy contractor I can turn to for future work.

We had Ryan over yesterday to repair 3 interior doors in a very old and actually historic San Franciscan Victorian house. In addition to the three interior doors, Ryan painted the front door which had also just been replaced. His attention to detail was great, there were constant adjustments to make sure everything fit, latched, matched, didn't drag, looked great, etc. His response was prompt, he replied almost immediately and was available to start the very next day. He came prepared for the job, from start to finish. Ryan is very up front and fair in terms of compensation. You will have zero issue with the transparency and fairness of his bids. It should also be noted that this is a very old building. The areas where the door hinges connected to the wall/door frame were extremely dilapidated, the wood was old and and over drilled. It was like putty. But Ryan rocked it. Not only did Ryan pay close attention to the style of the Victorian building and matched the details perfectly, his finished product was seamless. You can't even tell that work had been done. There wasn't even dust on the floor. It was legit, honest good work. 100% recommend.

Great job re-roofing my house. Was tar & gravel, aged & leaking. New modified bitumen roof and gutters look great! These guys really take pride in the quality of their work, which was appreciated. (Communication with the head roofer was a little tricky, no trouble communicating with Israel though!)

I'm a new homeowner in Oakland and needed an engineers help with drafting my floorplan for bathroom addition permits. I decided to hire individual contractors without paying the fees of a General Contractor. Oh did I get lucky to have found Mike who not only provided excellent service in drafting but also offered his expertise on design and construction. Mike assisted with my brainstorming and troubleshooting process beyond what I had expected. He was knowledgeable about city regulations and offered sound advice on where to locate fixtures. I appreciate working with Mike to jumpstart the project and would highly recommend him for drafting and engineering services.

If we could give Wise Stage Remodeling more stars than 5, we would! We hired Wise Stage Remodeling to finish a very difficult and messy remodel in San Francisco (single family house). A previous contractor messed the remodel up beyond belief and left it in shambles, while we were out of town. None of the new contractors were even willing to consider taking this job and we were desperate. Sergey from Wise Stage Remodeling responded to our request via Thumbtack. He gave us a very reasonable estimate and timeframe to finish the project. Sergey and his team (especially Arthur, his carpenter, who's amazing with cabinets, doors, tiling) were extremely diligent and hardworking. They remodeled the kitchen from top to bottom, as well as finished remodeling the rest of messy unfinished projects of all levels of difficulty throughout the house. Sergey and Arthur pulled us out of a very messy situation and made the impossible possible. They were both incredibly responsive and accommodating throughout the entire construction process: hardworking, honest, and polite guys. Their attention to detail and ability to face our complex construction issues alleviated a lot of stress and pain on our part. We simply lucked out w/hiring Wise Stage Remodeling. We've been through a number of remodels with a few of our properties in San Francisco, and never had a more pleasant experience with the contractors. We would absolutely, without a doubt, recommend hiring Wise State in a heartbeat!

Pedro is the best. He is a licensed electrician but does it all. He has done electrical work, painting, crown molding, exterior shutter installation, and more. For a friend, he installed a new front door and painted it. For another friend, he repaired the exterior siding on their house. He is communicative over email and text; professional in scheduling, providing accurate estimates, and completing a job promptly; and leaves your house the way you'd hope after a project, you don't have to worry about paint being tracked, tools being put on antique furniture. Highly recommend!

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.
