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.

Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!

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!

Matt is amazing! He is friendly, responsive, and personable. He helped us replace a dilapidated fence for our home. Our fence separates a busy street and sidewalk from our yard and we didn't want everything to be exposed for too long during construction (we live in SF city). Not only did Matt do a fantastic job at a reasonable rate, he went the extra mile and got the job done within one day! Our new fence is sturdy and looks great. Matt is a very skilled craftsman. He hauled away the old fence and even came back a week later to make sure all the old junk was fully removed from our yard. Five stars. Highly recommended.

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

Gleo assisted with multiple projects to prep my home for sale. With little over 2 weeks to get repairs and enhancements completed, Gleo responded in a timely manner and dropped by to assess the job. I own an older condo with pretty outdated systems - doorbell mechanism, ceiling fan/light remote fixtures and AC. Thus, it was challenging trying to find out how things were connected and installed and where they were located. Gleo had to do a lot of extra research and testing to find the source of the issues. He accomplished this all through diligence, skill and the desire to do a good job. I was very pleased with the results stemming from the repairs he made. From start to finish, Gleo gave me the full confidence that he would go above and beyond to get the job done. His pricing for services are beyond fair despite the fact that spent multiple evenings and hours to perfect and fulfill the required services. Not only will you find a skilled, professional contractor but a fair, good-natured individual with a heart of gold. Thank you, Gleo!!!

Walter and his crew are one of the best contractors that we have hired on a home project and their estimate was very reasonable. They did an absolutely beautiful job on building our retaining wall and were hard working and patient in every detail. He is very honest and dependable and did not try and take any short-cuts on the job or substitute for cheaper materials. Throughout the process, his crew was very friendly and cooperative and made sure from the beginning that we were happy with everything. They also made sure to clean up the yard after completing the job. We are very happy with their work and will use them again for other projects. I would highly recommend Walter and his crew to anyone looking to hire a great landscaping contractor.

We hired Gustavo to put in a front walkway. We had a very tight budget but wanted it to look good. Gustavo and his team were incredibly responsive and worked really quickly. It was basically finished in one day. We are really happy with the quality of the work and Gustavo's fast response to our questions and requests. It's a beautiful walkway and we are hiring him to do other projects around our yard.

After researching many contractors and companies, my wife and I ended up choosing Eli to completely redo our new home. Our last experience, with our previous house was a disaster so this time we were very picky and took our time choosing a contractor that we thought would be a perfect match with us! There are a few reasons why Eli was more then 100% perfect for us. 1. The cost was right around the cost of the other contractors we met with, who offered us less and did not seem to want to incorporate all our dreams. 2. Eli listened to us and followed exactly what we wanted, and never got tired of listening to us about anything. 3. Eli and his team were professional, clean, and extremely friendly throughout the entire project. 4. Eli only uses top-notch materials, unless otherwise specified, and makes sure to give you the highest quality in every aspect. 5. Eli and his team were amazing from start to finish, easy to talk to and everything was completed on time! There are so many companies and contractors in the area, and the service and professionalism that Eli delivers is far greater then anyone else. Designing and remodeling our home was actually a fun, joyful thing that we absolutely enjoyed because of Eli and his team. This is the best outcome we could have ever dreamed of considering the fact that we were so nervous in the beginning because of our last experience. We are so happy and have already referred Eli to some of our friends because he is just that amazing. We love Eli and his team and recommend him to anyone who wants a pleasant experience with remodeling!

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

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!

Eddie converted our unfinished garage into a guesthouse/playroom. I couldn't have asked for more from a contractor! Not only was his work outstanding, but he is a great communicator, punctual (the job finished exactly on time), and change orders were fair and reasonable. He also had valuable suggestions that I hadn't thought about and he pointed out important details that other contractors missed when the job was bid. I just hope he's available next time I have a project!

We chose this company out of three other contractors for our kitchen remodeling. they started and finished on time, process went well and smooth. same guys that started were the same guys that finished. they were very nice and after a month of remodeling they almost became a part of our family ;) we knew what we were getting into cause we remodeled a kitchen before but I guess it can be a good experience when the job is being done by professionals. i highly recommend M&M construction for your remodeling project , what ever it may be.

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.

Overall my hardscapes project came out better than expected, Ben listened to my wife's design ideas on flagstone pavers and elevated them based on our backyard space shape, size and space for each stone. They have an amazing team, Mike did daily follow ups to loop us in every day what work was being done and not to clash with our daily routines in our home. Great company, I would absolutely recommend to anyone with a home renovation project.

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.

Highly recommended. This was for a remodel project for our 1200+ sqft house for about two and a half month. I interviewed 12 GCs before I decided to hire Robert as Robert showed more responsive, honest, and a higher availability during my timeframe. The quote Robert gave is in the lower middle range among other licensed GCs. Upon started the project, Robert and his crew were onsite every day and worked diligently. During the work, I asked some more works beyond the original quote, e.g, wall insulation, crown molding, etc. The price Robert gave me was reasonable and transparent. Work quality is good as the city inspections passed along the project, and the final inspection passed the first time.

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.

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.
