David arrived promptly as scheduled and was well equipped to handle a variety of renovation and installation tasks that were presented to him. His price was right and he was very helpful with ideas to cut costs and using construction methods and/or materials to save time. I would definitely recommend hiring David for any of your home repair, renovation, or installation needs.

Ricardo is fast, honest, and super reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to hire him again in an instant. I had a couple of plumbing issues that popped up after a renovation, and not only did Ricardo fix them, he even gave me advice on what to do if the issues happen again. Seriously, Ricardo is the best.

German delivered as promised. I was in a jam and needed desperately to finish the project by a certain date. He also had to work around a construction crew which meant coming over early in the evenings a few times. He and his crew were polite, reliable and competent. Highly recommended!

Gleo is one of the most honest handymen I've had the pleasure of hiring. He came to our home, checked out our AC and pointed out how the air filter was clogged and the mesh around the condenser outdoor was dirty. He replaced the filter on his own dime and also cleaned the mesh around the condenser to improve the airflow and it fixed the problem. He recommended that I check the filter and the area around the condenser frequently and do my own preventative maintenance so that I don't have to spend money on a professional in the future at the cost of his own future business. I am glad I hired Gleo and whole heartedly recommend him for any handyman projects. I'll be hiring him definitely for my next project.

We found Salinas home remodeling services most helpful in several ways. Services done for us included electrical wiring, plumbing installation, wall and ceiling painting with texture applications. Also, bathtub, sink and appliance installation. All work was done at high standards. Note: we also experienced generous and positive attitudes from soft spoken professionals, and received on time service. Above all, we have memories of his installation process that are most rewarding. Thank You, Mr. Vyron Salinas and his helper Pablo. Yours truly, Nicholas Adkins

Let me preface my comments that I do not generally give 5 stars for any services. Gerald accommodated our off hours request by working on the weekend, responded very quickly, and quoted the in within hours of examining the project area. He was on time, very professional, and stayed beyond a "normal" work day to complete the job so we could see clients first thing Monday morning. As with most remodeling/refurbishing projects, unexpected glitches and delays come up. Overall, we are extremely grateful for what Gerald did for us!!

I did a full home remodel with Rudy. He is an awesome contractor to work with. He has a team that is well skilled and hardworking. I have very good attention to detail, some would call me a perfectionist. Rudy worked with me to get the remodel quality that I wanted without going over my budget. I have never been able to communicate via e-mail but he always answers my phone call. My suggestion is to just call him and talk to him directly on getting a quote and any issues that come up during the remodel. Rudy even went out of his way to build my kitchen cabinets and closets because I purchased them from IKEA, for the original agreed upon price. I don't like the cheap cabinets from the Chinese stores. It comes fully assembled but I'm not impressed with the quality. In summary, I would hire Rudy and his team at CaMex again for any remodel work I need.

Kelly was timely, professional and did a great job installing a pet door for me. I also had a few smaller projects to get done that Kelly was able to get done. Working with someone like Kelly who had all of these qualities is important for me and I'm very happy to have found him on Thumbtack. I look forward to having Kelly work on a few other projects for my home. Thanks Kelly!

Scorpion Services provided me and my family with an amazing Trex deck. The upper deck covers a large portion of our lower deck which has made this winter season enjoyable outside. I definitely recommend Scorpion Services to anyone who is remodeling/building a deck or add on to their home.

It was our first experience hiring a general contractor to do a kitchen remodel and room extension. Rick made us feel very comfortable during the whole process and answered all of our questions. Responded promptly by email and by text messages. Rick gave a lot of personal attention to our needs, and even hired a maid service after the kitchen remodel was done. We love our kitchen and are very happy with the room extension!

I am extremely pleased with the major renovation of my home including kitchen, bathrooms, and all interior and exterior walls that Lifetime Remodeling completed for me on March. 13, 2018. I certainly welcome the opportunity to give them a five start rating. Everybody at Lifetime was top notch to work with---The supervisors of my project, Sam and Mike, back office and all the workers who came to make the completion of this project a reality were extremely hard working, very professional, and completely trustworthy. I also liked that this company works with many suppliers and saved us thousands of dollars on flooring, marble countertops, tile, cabinets and more. The supervising managers and their workers were also top-notch in every way. Because I am an older, single person it was very important for me to go with a company I could trust from the beginning to the end of the project. I'm thankful and could not be happier. I will gladly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a general contracting business for their home renovation needs. They're top-notch all the way!

We called Lemon Remodeling on a kitchen renovation and the project went extremely well! The team did a fantastic job and we are very happy with the way everything turned out. Our project manager was extremely friendly, professional and communicated well. We talked to several different contractors before selecting them as we thought they offered the best product and were the most responsive to our inquiry.

I was able to schedule estimates with 5 contractors for my bathroom remodel. Each definitely had their own approach with a few being extremely pushy trying to talk me into doing work I didn't want to do! I believe Green line was the 3rd appointment I had and Manuel Sr & his son Manuel Jr definitely stood out to my family and I. They listened to what we wanted, gave me a few options and honest recommendations (which actually involved less total work = less money). I really appreciated the honest no pressure approach. It was also very clear to me that they had a lot of experience because they were able to point out a few things that no other contractor brought to my attention. Service: I'd say the entire process was pretty seamless, Jr or Sr were always available through call or text, no issues with cleanliness or picking up materials. They use a progress payment system so we paid them as they completed certain phases of work which I really liked. They were able to recommend retailers for the finish materials which was very helpful. Work Quality: Craftsmanship excellent, tiles were set beautifully and look stunning. About half way through we decided to go with their recommendation of doing level 5 texture through the vanity area into the bathroom (which they gave a VERY good price for), this was a great suggestion as it really helps in bringing a cleaner modern look. Paint, vanity and fixture installation were all done very nicely. Over all very satisfied, we will be calling Green Line back to do the guest bath in a few months. Price: They were not the cheapest estimate I received. I decided to hire them because they felt trustworthy. Which is a hard thing to achieve after one meeting. However I am EXTREMELY pleased with the price I paid for the finished product. They explained to me in out initial meeting that this type of finish work requires a certain amount of money to do properly which I completely understand now. They were also not the most expensive which is surprising for the transformation they accomplished. Thanks guys! -Christina

If you need any kind of construction or remodel then Hauser Construction is for you. They take care of my rentals and have done an amazing job at a reasonable price. Whether it's routine maintenance, or a total overhaul you simply couldn't do better in terms of professionalism, attention to detail and overall cost. They will work with you to fit your needs into your budget and get it done on time. To me time is money in the rental market and Hauser construction has always delivered on time. I continue to use them for the continuing maintenance needs of my rentals in Monterey. I am extremely satisfied and simply would not use anyone else.

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.
