Jeff did an absolutely fabulous job installing barn door hardware to hang an existing vintage door in our tiny historic district home. He was an excellent communicator both before the job and during. He accommodated our tight schedule to complete the job, provided a workable solution to a minor installation snag, and the end product is even better than I had imagined. High quality workmanship! Definitely would hire again!

Thumbtack, once again, sent me Angels in disguise!! Sam was true to his quote. He came out on a Saturday and realized this repair needed to be done ASAP. He and Nick gave up their Sunday, longer than they had anticipated, but stayed until completed. Very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would, and will, recommend Sam. I will keep his card handy. Thank you Sam and Nick...AND THANKS to your family for letting me have your Sunday!!! -Sharon

I called over 15 different people looking for quotes for tree service roof service and to rebuild our stair case out of all the people I called K.G.A was the only one that showed up gave me a quote and followed through. They did a great job on our trees which were very tall and a lot of them it was a hard job and they did it with no problem. We also hired them to repair our roof they did a great job on it. We had many roofers come out and not help us they did. We would definitely refer them out to our friends and family. We also are going to hire them to rebuild our staircase. So far in total we will of hired them three times. They are great kind and very professional.

We knew we had a leak in our roof and with the recent rain it quickly got worse. We reached out to Belru and spoke with Maks. He committed to coming to check the roof that same day. In torrential rain and wind Maks without hesitation went up on our roof to not only inspect the roof but repair it on the spot. Then Maks came back a few days later to ensure the sealant he put on the roof was still in place and our attic remained dry. Superior service! We would definitely hire him again.

Thanks to thumbtack I was able to find SOTA Construction Company, a great company for repairs I needed to one of my bathrooms, the shower wall tiles had to be removed and replaced, along with the fan, and some plumbing. They showed up within a couple of hours after I contacted them. And started the job as promised and on time. I'm very happy with the work they did. I would highly recommend these guys. They were very perfessional and nice too!!

SW Construction was hired by the seller to repair a truss HVAC support, and section 1 items on the home I am purchasing and where I have resided as a tenant. Scott and his team were great! Scott explained every detail of what they were doing, reviewed every item his team repaired, and gave instruction as needed or if he saw the need for additional changes. He was patient with us all and I felt comfortable asking any questions and would get a clear easy to understand response every time! Having a good work ethic and follow-thru, I would recommend SW Construction any time and they will be my first go to for another project. Thank You Scott and the SW Team for a job well done!

Spectrum One was the best choice I made! I had damage done to my home from a falling tree so I had an insurance claim. Spectrum One assigned me a public adjuster that dealt with my insurance company on my behalf, which in itself is a blessing! Their quality of work was outstanding! I had also made a few changes in the repair process and their team made sure I had change orders and knew EXACTLY what I was paying for the changes I was making and had an updated contract to me within 24 hours. The crew and staff were all very professional and friendly, I was actually sad to have my job ending! Paul (the owner), was especially pleasant to work with! He made sure I knew where we were at and any changes to the schedule since I had left out of town for 10 days. I have a few more additional projects that I will be needing services on in the very near future and I cannot wait to hire them back again! Thank you Spectrum One for your outstanding services! Hope to see you soon!

I recently hired Albert to repair the fence on my rental property in SF due to storm damage. He was prompt & courteous and attentive to my needs as a remote landlord. He gave me a fair estimate and sent pictures of the damage and explained the scope of the repair involved. After approval of the proposal, he executed the work in a timely matter and kept me updated on the progress & worked well with my tenant. Within 2 weeks, another storm caused some further damage to the property and he came promptly and repaired the problem, saving me hundred of dollars in the process. After 2 wonderful experiences, I employed him again to repair some lock and door knob issues that recently occurred as well. I would highly recommend him for any handyman services you might require as he is both honest, co-operative, punctual and trustworthy.

I live far away from a large rental unit (from 1964) that needed renovation. Based on the reviews, I went with Nathan. We spent about $25k on the total project, and Nathan did everything from painting smokey walls, laying laminate/vinyl flooring, partial bathroom (2) reno, partial kitchen reno, garage conversion, window replacement, electrical and plumbing work, and various repairs. I'm very satisfied with Nathan and his hard work. The place looks fully renovated and he went above and beyond to ensure installations/repairs are seamless with the original features. Whenever any problems cropped up, he was very willing to work it out. He's professional, responsive, and trustworthy. That is a very important consideration as I was remote.

It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation letter on behalf of Equinox. I own two rental properties in the cities of Napa and American Canyon. Last year, Equinox repaired my property in Napa. This job included the painting of the exterior of the building made of stucco and wood. Equinox performed exceptionally well and went above and beyond by making sure that work was completed to my satisfaction (on time and within budget). Additionally, Equinox worked diligently in repairing a wooden deck and an iron bridge that connects the deck to the patio. After the work was done, the house recovered its luster and beauty! Equinox painted the exterior of my second property in American Canyon. This building is made up mostly of stucco. They power washed the exteriors, replaced the wooden frames of front windows, performed detailed repairs around the walls where they found cracks and other minor things. I was very impressed with the final result. I was very satisfied with their performance. The house recovered its original beauty! Equinox's personnel is detailed oriented, dependable and trustworthy. They are my first choice whenever I need a job to be done right the first time. If you have questions or need to speak with me, please feel free to call me.

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.  

What is a mold remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of identifying and removing unhealthy levels of mold that have colonized in a home, office, school or other building. Over time, if untreated, mold can destroy a home by breaking down cellulose-based materials (like wood or ceiling tiles) and causing a slow and messy decay. In the shorter term, a mold infestation can cause severe health problems. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mold can trigger respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritations, problems with your nervous system, and aches and pains. Mold inspection and mold remediation are often requested in tandem, although they are two separate services. Nationally, mold inspection costs range from $250 to $300. If mold has been positively identified in your house, either by visual examination or through mold testing, remediation can safely remove it. Properly trained and equipped professionals use specialized equipment (like vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filters) to keep mold spores contained while they remove contaminated materials and treat infested areas with antimicrobial spray. A key component to a successful mold remediation after eliminating the mold is ensuring that the water source that caused the mold infestation is also resolved.

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.

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 do you get rid of mold?

Mold is a naturally occurring and important part of our ecosystem. That said, excessive mold can actually be hazardous to your health. Mold remediation is usually the best strategy to get rid of unhealthy levels of mold in your home or office. If you’re not comfortable working with mold or the area is larger than 10 square feet (3 feet by 3 feet), it is highly recommended to hire a mold remediation professional to resolve the problem. However, if you’re DIY-savvy, don’t have any health risks, and are not freaked out by mold, the EPA gives homeowners the greenlight to clean mold areas that are less than 10 square feet. Here are some EPA-recommended DIY cleaning tips:

  • Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely.
  • Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
  • Throw away absorbent or porous materials (like ceiling tiles and carpet) if they become moldy.
  • Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.
  • Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Clean up the mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
  • If you are unsure about how to clean an item (art, fine furniture, etc.) consult a reputable specialist affiliated with a professional organization in their field.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
