Kitchen Remodel

  • 51 hires on Thumbtack

Our experience with Smart Homes was positive. From the initial meeting for an estimate through day 1 logistics and last minute details to get the job done on time. Some of the highlights of the project: Smart Homes offered a very competitive bid, honored it and at no point were there hidden costs or any surprises. We’ve done remodel projects in the past and this was the first time the quoted price is what we paid. The end date was guaranteed. Obviously things out of everyone’s control (like the toilet arriving broken) can affect the schedule, but even so Smart Homes was done with the work and inspections by the quoted end date. And, they even came back the following week when the back-ordered LED mirror arrived to make sure it was installed correctly. Smart Homes assisted with some of the decisions on materials when we had to make last second changes due to discontinued materials. They recommended locations to find what we wanted and made sure the entire project came together and looked like we expected. The team in our house was professional and respectful to the rest of the house, making sure the mess was confined to the bathroom. While onsite they communicated and asked questions when a decision point was reached. They never ‘guessed’ at what we would want, making sure we got what we expected. My only critical feedback would be on the overall communication from the project manager. It was minor and never affected the actual work, but I felt I needed to stay on top of the communication because the front office and the build team weren’t on the same page. Again, it didn’t affect getting the work done as we were available onsite in the morning and evening to answer any questions. We would definitely recommend Smart Homes to our friends. We are planning to remodel another bathroom with them in the coming months.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who fixes refrigerators?

Typically, appliance repair technicians who offer refrigeration repair also work with washers, dryers, dishwashers and other household appliances. While there is no formal training required to be an appliance repair technician, consider certification requirements, as the technician should know how to safely work with refrigerants (the chemical that keeps your fridge cold) and substitute refrigerants such as HFCs. You should also read reviews to get a sense of the pro’s experience and reputation. The appliance repair pro will come to your home, bringing all the necessary tools for diagnosis. They may need to order parts to complete the job, but all the work will take place in your home. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How long do fridges last?

Refrigerators can last 10 to 20 years, although the most common lifespan is about 13 years. If your fridge is acting up, consider its current age when deciding whether to invest in repairs or buy a new one. Common easy fixes include faulty thermostats, dirty coils and clogged drain lines. Thermostats and dirty coils can be generally be fixed for an average cost of $80-$100. Clogged drain lines, which usually cause leaks, can often be fixed for under $200.

More complex refrigeration repairs such as replacing a bad compressor or replenishing low refrigerant can cost more because of expensive parts and higher labor. A new compressor costs an average of $200, not including labor. If labor is an average of $75-$100 per hour, and the repair takes 3 hours, you’re looking at roughly $500. Consider the age and purchase cost of your fridge; investing $350 in a $600 fridge that is 8 years old may not be cost-effective.

How much does refrigerator repair cost?

Refrigerator repair generally costs a fraction of the price of a new fridge and shouldhave your appliance up and running again in no time. The problems your refrigerator is experiencing and the parts required to fix it will affect your repair costs. Where you live can affect labor rates, which will raise or lower your costs. Here are some examples of average costs:

  • Diagnostic fees: $50-$100. Repair pros often have a service call fee or diagnostic fee to account for their time traveling to your location with all their tools to assess the problem. If you choose to have them repair the fridge, most pros then credit this fee toward your repair cost.
  • Parts: $20-$500. A new compressor averages $200, an icemaker $300, and computerized components such as touch screens and control boards average $300 or more.
  • Basic repairs: $180-$400, including parts. This price range can include repairing the evaporator or fan motor.
