We love our master bathroom and closet! Bob has great energy, always has a smile on his face, and made our renovation project run as smoothly as possible at all times. He is a problem solver, very easy going, and is detailed oriented. Most importantly, he helped us stay within our budget and has reasonable rates. We highly recommend the Rennick Group.

Eric and company (Seusaca) helped us renovate both our kitchen and new office space. They did an outstanding job in both instances and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality work. We were highly impressed not only the quality of work but also with their timeliness and ability to stay on budget. Finding a trustworthy contractor is a lot of work and Thumbtack made this easy. Thank you Thumbtack for leading us to Eric's company.

Stuart has done two jobs for us -- the first went so well that we had full confidence in him for the second, larger, project. Both projects were completed on time, and there was no slow down at the end like I've experienced with other contractors. Since Stuart works with a consistent team of subs they work well together -- the plumber and the cabinet maker and the tile guy were all aligned. And when a piece didn't go well -- and they don't always -- we worked it out to everyone's satisfaction.

    Brian was a pleasure to work with! He helped us accomplish some major remodeling in the main living area of our Shell Beach, CA home. This included removing a large wall between living room and kitchen, complete kitchen remodel, new flooring throughout including stairway and upstairs hall, resurfaced the fireplace and installed gas insert. The entire job was completed in 3 months. He stayed in constant contacted with up even though we could not be on sight for the first 2 months of the remodel. Brian when above and beyond by doing much of the detailed finish work himself, including laying some gorgeous tile on the stair risers. We are thrilled with the completed project; we will definitely call Brian for future renovation work and would recommend Brian to anyone looking for a contractor.

      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.
