German (pronounced "Herman") was amazing. He installed a circuit in our warehouse, running conduit and pulling wire at 1/2 the cost of another bid. His workmanship is excellent and he and his helper meticulously cleaned up after themselves, including vacuuming any sheet rock dust created when the conduit was screwed into our sheetrock. He accommodated our availability, is honest, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him for any minor or major electrical projects.

Matthew helped fix a door that was sticking in my bedroom. He was very meticulous about his work and showed incredible craftsmanship. His attention to customer service is unparalleled. His rates are very reasonable. He was prompt and super-friendly throughout the project. He has much experience working on very high-end home projects, much beyond mine. But what I appreciated is he was able to apply his learnings and high bar of craftsmanship to a very small project that I needed done...at a very reasonable rate. I'll be working with Matthew much more in the future!

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

Carlos is the man…from inquiring about rates and services to scheduling an appointment to in person meeting this morning (3/10/17), my experience was superb! I needed 2 bedroom sets including mattresses, miscellaneous junk and more junk from my backyard hauled. The rate seemed really affordable so I sent a message to confirm rate. I got a response within minutes. The week leading up to my appointment I was in communication with Carlos to confirm details. My initial appointment was at 10am, but since a pretty much had all my stuff in my living room ready to go, I rescheduled for 8am. The team arrived at 8am, Carlos introduced himself, the team put on shoe covers to protect my carpet (wow, loved that), and got started. The job was complete and they were on their way at 8:45am. If you ever need hauling services or any other restoration work, check out Restoration 1, you won’t be disappointed!

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

Bogdan was a gift. He and his team installed ~2000 SQft of Bamboo Hardwood floors, a marble entry way, tile floor in the laundry room and bath, built a tile shower from scratch, matched and installed granite in a half bath and full guest bath, and repaired several small but important plumbing issues along the way. Bogdan was respectful and considerate of our priorities. He worked with us with patience, always checking in to make sure we were happy with the choices and installation. For example, he was able to create a seamless transition between the tile and hardwood and marble that made a big difference in how the flooring flows- no tripping on t-moulding ! I would happily recommend Bogdan for home improvement projects.

Richard helped me design and remodel some features of my home before selling. Richard has a great eye for design and is able to construct as well. Richard and his team poured a new (black) concrete driveway, built me a new lateral cedar stained fence and painted the exterior of my home navy blue. This lead to a quick sale above asking, Thanks!

Rafael was great- someone recently stole all of his tools, and he still managed to come and help me with numerous projects. All his work is spot on and he works hard to make sure he is doing everything to your specifications. I plan to hire him again for other projects, and I strongly suggest you hire him too!

Juan put up trim and baseboard on newly textured and painted walls. He is so professional. He met my husband at home depot to buy supplies. Arrived on time, was really efficient and cleaned up really well before he left. He walked us through everything he did and told us how to proceed (painting and sanding) I appreciated the flat rate vs hourly for the job I posted. We’ve already talked about another small project I would like him to do for us. Thanks Juan!

I highly recommend Kris Kaehler and Economy Home Repair. During our initial consultation, Kris was receptive to my project goals, knowledgeable of the industry and market, and candid in giving feedback on what would work well. He gave very good suggestions for exterior paint colors and a clear timeline for completing the job. Because of his professionalism and attention to detail, I asked him to work on interior painting of my entire home, installing floors, and updating two bathrooms. I am more than pleased with his crew's work and staying on schedule. Throughout the exterior and interior projects, Kris was accessible to my calls, informed me of both progress and issues, offered solutions, respected my home, showed regard for my neighbors, looked after his crew's well being, and insisted on doing outstanding work. He is straightforward in his approach to the job and has high standards of workmanship for himself and his crew. If I had any more work to have done, I certainly would ask Kris to consider taking the job!

Johan and his brother did an incredible job on my closet door. He was quick to respond, at our house the next day to provide a quote, and produced high-quality work. He was easy to work with and flexible with scheduling (I mostly texted with him to coordinate). I highly recommend him, and look forward to using his services for future projects.

I would highly recommend Shaz Construction! We needed kitchen & bathroom remodeling and looked at a few companies, but am glad we chose Shaz Construction. Not only Shaz helped us with re-designing our kitchen and bathroom, he made it look fabulous. We had no idea on what types of products to select to match this design and he assisted every step of the way. Shaz even gave us tips which ended up saving us money. Shaz paid close attention to detail and ensured that everything ran smoothly with quality workmanship. Shaz is extremely professional and easy to work with, and kept us informed all the time. We could not be happier with our kitchen & bathroom. We could not be happier with our kitchen & bathroom transformation. When people walk in, they are blown away at the difference. It is amazing what a new kitchen and bathroom can do to your house. I have recommended Shaz to everyone and would do it all over again with him. If you are looking for a contractor Shaz is definitely the person you want to select.

Our Christmas tree stand sprung a leak and we had huge water damage in our living room. Afik was very knowledgeable about what the potential issues were and gave us various options for mitigation. He also worked with the insurance company, saving me time. I was very happy with his work, and how quickly he responded to us and completed the work.

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.

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.  

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
