If you're anything like me, you probably tend to be suspicious of online reviews. I didn't know Juan prior to getting in contact with him via this website. I was looking to get a TV mounted. However considering what I was looking to have done, it was going to be more than just having a TV mounted. I wanted the TV mounted above my fireplace. I also wanted a new power outlet installed behind the TV and didn't want any cables to be visible. This was going to involve electrical and drywall. Juan did an amazing job. The TV looks great. It's mounted, looks clean, no visible cables, drywall looks as it did prior to the job. He quoted me a very fair price for all the work, was on time, and very professional. I'll be getting in contact with Juan in the near future for other home projects. I would certainly recommend him.

Dave and his partner Zack recently completed a bathroom remodel for me. The job included new porcelain tile for the floors and the shower surrounds. They were both very professional showing up on time every day and putting in a full days work with only a short break for lunch. The quality of work was awesome and the job was completed on time. Friendly guys who know what they’re doing. I’m using them again for another bathroom remodel.

Hired Carlos and his team for a full home remodeling project in Santa Monica. Carlos's price is very competitive. To make sure their quality of work is good, I asked for 3 references of their past clients. Carlos also took me to several sites to see their projects. This company is very pleasant to work with! I will hire them again.

He did a better than average job and did it in a very timely fashion. The three things that I was disappointed about were, no clean up after job was complete, didn't cover the appliances in kitchen and he still has the key to my property.

Did the job in the timeframe estimated and did a good job. Mess was hauled away, relatively little impact on the rest of my remodel project. Plan to work with Dean again on other rooms with popcorn ceilings.

Mohammad (civil engineer) did awesome job on my French hardwood floor. The knowledge and experience shows in the final product. He is honest and very hardworking professional. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. His attention to detail and quality of work is well above others who have worked on my homes. Due to his exceptional work I have decided to work with him for designing my bathroom vanity and to remodel my 2 bathrooms. He will also helping us finish up our brand new kitchen. I would highly recommend Mohammad for any project you may have.

Jose from JP Custom Home Construction is a total pro. Courteous, punctual, and a great value. I scraped a popcorn ceiling in one of my bedrooms; Jose sanded, taped, texturized, painted, ran electric, and installed a ceiling fan/light. Amazing work. I will definitely be using this little company again!

I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with Cheryl Cason on a variety of Fabulous Homes projects in Marin County which I experienced her outstanding design and construction talents and ability to tackle whatever came her way efficiently, cost effectively and tactfully no matter how big or small the job. I also hired Cheryl personally to remodel a part of our home in Mill Valley which from concept to completion turned out exactly as I had wished in an unbelievable time frame. On a separate occasion, Cheryl was contracted by my family for her interior design talents for the entry and livingroom of our home and as a result, all who enter comment on how beautiful, comfortable and inviting the home is. Cheryl is not only trustworthy but a true to joy to work with! We look forward to working with her again next year.

Tom, We are very pleased with the remodel of our two bathrooms. Everything we planned, colors, lighting, custom cabinets, counter tops, sinks, toilets, Jacuzzi tub, shower, pocket doors and hardware came together and created the dream baths we had hoped for. Our remodel required gutting two bathrooms and changing a bathroom with a shower into a Jacuzzi tub and a bathroom with bath tub into a shower. Because of this, we greatly appreciated working with you to improve on our initial designs and your suggestions of more cost effective ways to implement them. We also appreciated your willingness and ability to follow through with various changes we made as the job progressed. We were always pleased to see your employees arrive, as they were all about doing the best for us each day. They came to the job clean and ready to work with a positive attitude. They are highly skilled professionals and they were always accommodating, in working with us to meet our needs. We kind of miss seeing them now that the job is completed. It was a pleasure to have you and your employees remodel our bathrooms. You were truly Innovative in meeting our remodel design needs. We highly recommend your company, We’re Innovative, for all remodeling. John and Cathy

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.
