Jenny L. says, "Happy Bay Construction is simply THE BEST! I’m blown away by their work ethic. Their communication, thoughtfulness, ability to execute jobs in a timely fashion, quality of work and honest and fair bids is exemplary. However MOST impressive the genuine caring they take with all their jobs.  YES, CARING! They listen to their customers and they care about your project. How will it look?  What condition the job site will be left in? Are you happy with their work? All of this and more is what has kept me hiring them for multiple jobs.   I originally hired Eshel, founder of Happy Bay Construction, for work on a property in San Francisco. I needed to rebuild the existing front porch and stairs as well as create a back staircase and reinforce the deck. Happy Bay showed up on time and finished the job ahead of schedule. They did such a terrific job that I hired them to paint the exterior of the property. As the house came alive, we needed to replace the driveway and build a retaining wall. This too was done in a timely fashion. There is NOTHING that Happy Bay Construction cannot provide.   I think the best review is when the person rehires the same company for a different project. To date I have hired Happy Bay Construction on more than ten projects and they are currently finishing up a bathroom remodel in Sonoma County.   Do not hesitate to set up a consultation and feel free to reach out to them if you need references.   Thank you, Happy Bay Construction, for making dreams come true in a timely, honest, and caring manner. Bravo!"See more

Carol M. says, "Our kitchen remodel experience with Adi and Creekside pro construction was excellent. We were renovating a 50s era kitchen, but not just modernizing the furnishings and appliances. We were also knocking out a pass through wall and moving the sink back to the building wall under a window where there used to be a wet bar. We were also opening up the kitchen entrance which involved knocking out a couple of small walls and . A few observations about Creekside pro construction and Adi’s team in particular: Adi has really good people working for her. The team was clearly a group of regulars who have done numerous jobs with her. A shout out to Alex and Andy in particular, although every member of the team was a pro. Adi has a good eye for design and helped us visualize our project and make the right choices with regards to materials, layout etc. she’s very enthusiastic about what she does and it shows in the quality of the work. They handled the inevitable surprises that come with a job of this size extremely well. Like finding vent pipes inside one of the walls we were moving, or that the ceiling and walls were far from level, and a number of other smaller items. Moving the vent pipes added a change order, but the added price was fair. Communications with Adi and the team was excellent, mostly via WhatsApp or phone when needed. They were flexible when we wanted to add small jobs outside of the kitchen to take advantage of having a team there, (e.g. recessed lighting in our foyer, fixing a hanging closet door issue), not gouging us on price. Though they weren’t the least expensive option, I’m glad we paid that premium - and it wasn’t that large - to get a quality outcome and excellent responsiveness to any questions or concerns we had. In short, I whole-heartedly recommend Creekside pro construction , in fact we’re considering them for an additional project."See more

Heidy M. says, "Selvin managed the repair and renovation of our 1950s house very professionally and responsibly. During the project, which included the redesign and remodeling of an outdated kitchen, the installation of new flooring throughout the house, the repair of several electrical, updates to the laundry room, and the addition of a new security gate, Selvin did an outstanding job of selecting and purchasing materials, keeping our costs reasonable, supervising workers, and making adjustments along the way as needed or as requested by us. He finished the project on time, cleaned up after the work, and checked back with us afterwards to make sure that everything was satisfactory. We recommend him highly if you are thinking of renovating an older home in the Bay Area."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to completely renovate a house?

Some homeowners pay as much as $25,000 to remodel a home. But you can pay more or less depending on:

  • The age of the home. Older homes tend to involve more work to update. 
  • The size of the home. Larger homes tend to cost more to renovate than smaller ones.
  • The condition of the home. Homes requiring structural changes or architectural plans will also cost more to renovate. 

Additional cost factors include building permits, as well as the costs of the required materials, paints, and flooring materials and labor. To get a better understanding of how much your home renovation will cost, discuss your project with several remodeling contractors and ask for price estimates.

How can I renovate my house cheaply?

There are a number of highly effective, budget-friendly renovations you can perform on your home. Here are some ideas to consider: 

  • Pressure wash your home’s exterior
  • Paint your front door
  • Replace your light fixtures
  • Get new door knobs 
  • Remove your popcorn ceiling
  • Add new wallpaper
  • Paint your kitchen cabinets 

And the list goes on. Chat with a few professionals to figure out how much your desired home renovations will cost you. If the prices exceed your budget, ask if the pros can suggest alternative upgrades that are more affordable.

What renovations are worth doing?

The most worthwhile renovations are the ones that will make your home more appealing to potential homebuyers in your market. But you should also consider renovations that will increase your own satisfaction and make your home more enjoyable for your household.

Explore remodeling ideas for your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, attic, garage — any part of your home. If you get inspired, start researching prices and come up with a budget. Then, contact a few remodeling contractors to discuss your vision and get accurate cost estimates.

Where do I start when renovating a house?

The first step is making a detailed plan for your home improvement project, which includes researching designs and appliances, and creating blueprints. Next, work out an exact budget for your home renovation, allowing extra money for unexpected expenses or emergencies.

Search for home renovation and remodeling contractors and make your decision after interviewing three to five promising candidates. Finally, make a timeline for the project, then begin packing up and preparing for the renovation to start.

Is it worth remodeling an old home?

It depends on the home’s condition and what you plan to do with it. For example, if you plan to live in the home for a long time, performing renovations could make the home more livable and enjoyable. If your intention is to resell it, it might be worth the time, money and effort. Old homes typically cost less than new ones, giving you a built-in budget to perform the renovations. The home’s unique character might even provide a significant boost in value once the renovations have brought the rest of it up to date.

However, you need to conduct research to fully answer this question. Figure out how much it will cost to remodel the old home and decide if the return on investment is enough for you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.
