David was awesome. He is a professional and acts like an owner, he did not only fix my door but also cleaned up the mess created by using the automatic sander. He also did the plumbing for my house and was very courteous in quoting the price. He is funny and very easy to deal with. I would blindly hire David for any Handyman task in my house.

We had an excellent experience with Cruz - we'll definitely be reaching out to him again if we ever have any rodent problems in the future. Our problem started on a Wednesday morning - we found a baby mouse in our sink. This we took care of ourselves. On Thursday night, while we were getting ready to sleep, we caught sight of a mouse running into our fireplace, which we quickly barricaded. 5 minutes after that we heard scratching in on the piece of wood that we used to block off the barricade, so we knew it was still in there. 30 minutes later, we saw another mouse run into our kitchen, that's when we blocked off the bottom of the doors around the house. At this point, it means we had at least 3 mice in the house (the baby one in the sink, the one that's trapped in the fireplace, and the one that ran into the kitchen). Friday morning, I went to the hardware store and set up 8 sticky traps baited with peanut butter around the house before work. But, we knew this wasn't enough so we decided to look for a professional. We initially found Cruz on Thumbtack - we contacted him Friday afternoon, and he came to do a free inspection on Saturday - the next day he came over again to patch up a couple problem spots we had inside our unit. After he took care of the problems inside of our unit (fireplace, behind the kitchen sink, behind the toilet), we went around the outside of the house and realized the problem was much larger than we initially thought - one side of the house was pretty much completely exposed at the ground level. Not only were there a myriad of entry/exit points for rodents, we had alot of pipes and also power meters that were in front of these problem spots. Cruz ended up coming up with a pretty elegant solution - he covered everything up. Where we had power meters and valves that would need to be accessible in the future, Cruz and his colleague installed the wire mesh as panels that could be easily removed by unscrewing a few bolts. Ever since Cruz stopped by, we haven't had any more activity, no more droppings and nothing on the traps. Cruz was very easy to work with and gave us a very reasonable rate. He responded quickly, showed up when he said he would, communicated clearly, and effectively rodent-proofed our house. He stopped by yesterday on a follow up visit to check on the traps (nothing yet). I HIGHLY recommend Cruz if you're having any type of rodent issue.

Ricardo was perfect. I needed several odd jobs done around the house. Ricardo showed up exactly when he said he would, had all the right tools, and delivered exactly what I asked for. He stuck with it until the job was 100% done to my satisfaction. I plan to hire him again any time I need a handyman.

Matt did wonderful work around our house. He sealed up some exposed insulation on the underside of our house's addition with plywood and also helped reposition and hook up our washer/dryer in a more convenient location. Matt is a great communicator and the quality of his work is excellent.

Vyron and his team were great. They remodeled a small guest house for us - flooring, ceiling, painting, plumbing, windows, cabinetry. It was a 3 day job. They always showed up on time, worked extremely hard, were professional and pleasant. Vyron is very focused on doing a quality job. He clearly has a lot of experience doing all types of remodeling projects, and offered several valuable suggestions. I would definitely use again.

Jasper did a great job with installing floating shelves in our kitchen and living room. They look like they were intentionally built into the house and fit snugly against the walls and fireplace.

Mr. Crespo is awesome! Very skillful, on time, worked very hard! He and his wife helped us to change 6 light fixtures! Two of them have very old wires and some light fixture is too new for the the old house, but he still did it! He also helped us with couple other random things like changing the toilet seat, replace and install new shower head, wall mount a bookcase. He's coming over again in a week as we need more help from him! He can do anything i feel like.

I hired Scorpion Services to replace my roof. The roof was well over 30 years old. Carlos and Neema came to my house and were never pushy, and really knew what they were talking about. Unlike other contractors I had place bids, Carlos informed me about about the process and gave me a number of options that worked within my budget. They did such a great job on my roof, over the next 6 months I have hired them to redo my deck, repair siding that has dry rot, and replace my gutters. I would not hestitate to recommend them to every friend and family member I have. Some of the most honest and hard working people I have ever hired!!

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.

We moved to California a few years ago, and were a little in the dark on who to go to when we purchased our home. Our freind recommended Bay Home Remodeling for our project, and we could not be more pleased with the work. They really took the reigns and completed an amazing project for us. Tom was prompt, organized, and a pleasure to work with. Our home built in the almost 100 years ago and had minimal renovations over the years. The team helped us create a beautiful design that opened up the floor plan, and completely remodeled the house based on our life style. Tom and Gal were the lead contractors on our job, and we loved having them at the house every day. We were actually very sad when they were finished because it meant they wouldn't be a part of our day to day life. The finished product is BEAUTIFUL. Everything was completed to perfection. They made the home new, while keeping the charm of the house. The team gave us great insights along the way. When we were stuck on a decision they guided us the right direction. I loved that Tom would always include his input when we were making a design decision. His expertise and experience was invaluable in making the right calls. We found that the selection of finishes from the Bay Home Remodeling partners excellent. We love the cabinetry, flooring, and counter top. Overall we could not be more pleased with our renovated home, and our time working with Bay Home Remodeling. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent team to remodel their home and definitely would use them on future projects.

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.
