Dave is more than outstanding. Not only is he professional, he can also think on this feet to resolve a very difficult door issues that we had for a long time. We live in a high end home and had 2 contractors work on the problem Each improved the situation slightly but the cause of the problem was never truly understood until Dave came along. One reputable door company even tried to sell me a new door. Initially, I was extremely wary of using someone from Thumbtack as there was no way to check credentials and bona fide references. Dave has certainly surprised us on the upside. He is cost conscious for his clients and does not recommend a more expensive solution if a cheaper one can be had. I watched Dave work the entire 2 hours he was here. He spent a great deal of time troubleshooting and then came up with a game plan that we both agreed would be ideal. He's a hard worker and an intelligent one at that. In the future, I will call on Dave to do maintenance work on our home without the slightest reservation. Ting P.

Andres was FANTASTIC! He responded to a small job we posted during a kitchen renovation for a complicated appliance install. I couldn't find anyone who could do it. He showed up ready to do whatever it took. He offered great input in helping us make decisions, always said it was no problem to make it happen, and got right to work. He had all the tools necessary to get the job done. He was clean and courteous. His wife worked with him and she was quiet and clean as well. We ended up giving him almost 3 days of work and he far exceeded the work we had previously done (he stained our wood counter tops). We will be hiring him for all our handyman/construction needs in the future. We highly recommend him.

Tony was the first to respond to my inquiry about painting the outside of my cottage. He came over the next day to evaluate the job. We easily agreed on a price for the whole job, and came to an understanding that it needed to be completed in the next two weeks. Despite some rain, which complicated the schedule, Tony and his team arrived on time, powerwashed the house, went above and beyond and repaired some rotting areas, did an excellent painting job, cleaned up thoroughly and put everything back as requested. I will definately use Tony's Handyman Services again for this, and for other projects. My sense is Tony is quite competent and can do carpentry, stonework, floors, fenches, irrigation systems -- pretty much anything I might need. Thanks Tony!

This is by far the best framing crew I have worked with on any of my projects. Not only did they follow the plans exactly, they treated my site with respect. They left it clean everyday and made accommodations for my clients living in the home. They will be my go-to crew for future projects. Joe Wetzel General Contractor

Trying to find a landscaping contractor on yelp, but all good ones were fully booked until a couple months later. So I turned to Thumbtack and eventually decided to hire Dario and his team. Dario is a honest person and his team is very professional. They did everything according to the plan and the quality of work is awesome. If I knew Dario earlier, I would definitely have him work on other part of my project as well. I would highly recommend Buzzy Bee Construction and would be happy to provide reference in the future.

We hired Defersol Building Contractor for a two week job to replace two large structural post, repair a deck (about 30 feet high), and replace a wall (wood and concrete). They secured the permits immediately and began and finished the project on time. David and his crew is easy going, flexible, and professional. And best of all, when they said they'd do something, they did it, and they did it well. I'd hire these guys in a second if I had more work to be done. Excellent team.

Rafael and his team have been awesome to work with. He is very responsive, professional, and punctual. His attention to detail has been great. The door installation, media wall build, and stair rebuild has been some of the best work we have seen on our house. I’m already looking at other projects we will be working with Rafael on in the future. I would recommend Rafael and his team. We are new home owners in Pebble Beach and have a ton of experience working with contractors and Rafael has been by far the most reliable and providing the best craftsmanship of the bunch.

I recently updated my house. I asked my many friends about a contractor recommendation and none of them were happy with theirs. Mr. Mun worked at my house for six weeks and he was trustworthy and excellent. He did his best to satisfy the customer and I will hire him again, especially since my husband and I were very particular.

Robert just finished adding a new bedroom, bathroom and a walk in closet at my home. I am very happy with the work he and his crew did. Also, he upgraded the panel to 200amps from the old 100amps panel. Whole process went very smoothly. Initially, I was very nervous about the whole process. He finished the work much ahead of schedule. Many other contractors quoted 3-4 months. But he finished 95% of the work in 2 months. You will notice that Robert is very honest and does not try to take shortcuts. He hires other contractors for specialized tasks such as plumbing, roofing, electrical etc where he feels the need. I also noticed that he and his employees are very punctual. He and his crew work 7.30am to 3-4pm. They are very hardworking people. I can't stress enough that he is very honest and not greedy at all like many other contractors I have worked with in past. My project was of decent budget. He never demanded any money upfront and not even a deposit before starting the work. Robert and his team will be the contractor for my future work and have recommended to my friends and colleagues.

Mic just completed our deck last month. It was the best experience we have had with a contractor ever - and we have had alot of experience! He was very flexible with all our changes and questions, gave our complex situation alot of thought, and came up with a design and style that we all liked. Then he executed beautifully. He is obviously a skilled craftsman, and on top of all that, very easy to work with. We also liked that he did all the work himself; was on time; and came in under his quote. We felt like we got a GREAT deal, as he was also less than all our other quotes. We are going to use him again on our other projects!

Mike is a fantastic contractor. He is responsive, reliable, honest trustworthy and the list goes on... His work is exceptional. Mike has a keen eye for detail and design which helped me greatly in my decision process. The first home project Mike did for us was back in 2014. From that point on - he continues to be my go-to contractor. I highly recommend Argon Construction!

Phillip Price Construction did an amazing job on my home addition and remodel. My wife and I had never remodeled a house before and were apprehensive about selecting the right contractor. Once we met Phil and his son Nick we were very impressed with their quick and clear communication. They were very knowledgeable and went over their itemized quote with us. Once they started they flew through each phase of construction constantly updating us and keeping our decisions on track. All the worries and horror stories we heard about contractors were laid to rest very quickly once we started the project. We really got to know them over the 5 months we worked with them and really enjoyed the whole process. They truly made the process a lot easier than we had imagined. When it was all said and done they came it right on budget and a little before we expected. We could not be happier with our new home and the fantastic job Phil, Nick, and their sub contractors did. We highly recommend them and would never use any other contractor.

          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.  

          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.

          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.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
