Richard Hynes is a very detailed professional. Upon meeting Richard I felt comfortable about the project. We originally wanted to order materials for the project and he had suggested to me that he would order any materials and provide us with the receipts. Luckily we let him order the material as it turns out the ones we wanted to order were undersized for our project. Richard came and seismically retrofitted our home. He also helped us on our kitchen and bathroom remodels while managing the project the whole way, hiring subs, coordinating between myself and subcontractors and achieving the results desired. Richards pricing was 20% cheaper compared to licensed professionals in the area. We are so glad to have had his help, as the previous worker we hired from thumbtack turned out to be unlicensed at a cheaper price, but ended up costing us a lot more money in the long run.

We had Outstanding construction do a full interior remodel (Kitchens/Bathrooms) including landscaping front/rear. Concrete patio and side walkway of my Moms home in Belmont. House was in need of major upgrades throughout. Entire interior was re-textured / crown moulding / kitchen demo/replace including appliances. Because KC has his own dump truck is very convenient for haul out of debris as well as pickup of landscape and other materials for the job as the job progresses. KC did have good suggestions and has the contacts to get good pricing on quality products such as Brick/cabinetry/foam accents/windows etc. Kirk and his team work very hard are conscientious and keep a tidy jobsite. He will work with any of your own subcontractors but will also provide contact details for folks he has worked with in the past. Pricing was fair after the whole job was done although it did take longer and cost more than originally estimated but from what I hear this is normal for larger re-model projects because there are so many moving parts. He had the plans drawn up and went to the city to obtain the permits...so no problems with any of the intermediate city inspections and achieved permit sign off . Our realtor who was checking in periodically on the projects progress was very impressed with the end result as was his colleagues who came to see the finished product. As testament to how well the finished product was received, when we put it on the market it sold in 7 days with multiple offers over asking. Granted alot of that had to do with the location but it also had a lot to do with the "Pop" the house had after the remodel was completed... people that looked at it were very impressed with the finished product.

AD: I have had the pleasure of working with David at my mixed use 6 unit building in SF for at least 15 years. He is completely trustworthy and very good at interacting with the tenants. David is a problem solver, he not only fixes the immediate problem but will figure out what is causing the problem and work on implementing preventative strategies. He takes allot of pride in noticing how things can work in a more efficient way and will make suggestions when he notices something that needs attention. I have also used David as a General Contractor supervising various subcontractors when there is a big remodel going on. Please contact me if you have any questions as I highly recommend David Tejeda.

I hired Solid General Construction to build an attached 1050 sq ft garage with a gable roof providing attic space via a staircase. In addition, we added a mudroom with half bath and made the previous owner's garage conversion permit legal. We were very happy with the finished product and really were pleased with all the work done by Nick and Zack and their selected subcontractors. This was a large project for Nick and he was totally dedicated to it during it's 3 month duration. He was not trying to juggle several projects at the same time which I appreciated and while he was on-site he spent his time working hard. Nick went out of his way to do little things to have the best possible product, like adding trim and windowsills in the garage, when he really did not have to. He also bought quality building materials when he could have gone for a cheaper alternative. At the end of the day when you go into these projects you should pick a contractor you can trust. Nick and his brother Zack are good guys; I had complete trust in them to get the job done right at a fair price.

Recently we had an opportunity to work with Paul Eiden. The first good thing was he was in Castro Valley where We reside. Paul called me back and was very professional, attentive and finished assembling a TV stand in a short time. He gave an estimate but worked hard to finish the job in time. Interesting enough Paul does some simple Handyman work. If we also need a Handyman we will consider Paul Eiden. Paul Eiden is very personable, easy to talk to and great customer service. Good luck Paul. Of course all of this possible because of Thumbtacks.com.

    Jim Siers had the 3 qualities were needed when we were looking to build our remodel/addition... 1) Honesty - Our project went sideways pretty quickly when we ripped open the walls and exposed multiple problems with our existing structure. Jim kept our added costs as reasonable as possible, knowing we were on a tight budget. 2) Skills - We are very pleased with the results and each of the subcontractors that came through commented on the high quality of his work. 3) Pride in his Work - Throughout each stage of the project, it was apparent that Jim cares a great deal about his work. He and his small team were easy to work with and very flexible. Jim is not a salesman, and not a chatty guy. He is a builder and a craftsman and we recommend Siers Construction wholeheartedly.

    I hired Marcos through Thumbtack to give me an estimate on what it what cost to repair a rental property garage I own. INITIAL MEETING Marcos was not just on time; he was early. He brought tools to measure and estimate. He asked questions and offered solutions. He did not try to upsell me. Furthermore, he did not treat my partner who is a woman, like she didn't know anything because of her gender. I was impressed. ESTIMATE Marcos was comprehensive in his estimate. There were no hidden costs. He was clear in listing the labor and materials as line items. He did the same for subcontractors. He was explicit about timelines. His contract made payment easy. PERFORMANCE Through out the project, Marcos checked in via text message. He sent photos of the progress via email and text. There were some surprises with the work once he removed the wall but Marcos made sure he contacted us before he moved forward. His solution was thoughtful in terms of our budget and long term use.

      Shawn Boelman is an honest, skilled craftsman who works within budget and on time! I fully recommend him. I have known Shawn for several years. He first came to my home as a subcontractor on a house expansion project. His work ethic, courtesy, and attention to the job were superior. Since completion of the initial project, I have directly hired Shawn to complete smaller jobs on my property. In every case, Shawn told me in advance how long the job would take, what costs were involved, and fulfilled my expectations. For just about any future project that I needed skilled help, I would hire Shawn Boelman. You should too!

      As a general contractor I know the challenges of finding quality and competent help, as well as the many problems that can arise with contractors/ subcontractors, and because of this, I am very glad to have been able to work with Edgar. I highly recommend hiring Edgar if you want things done right the first time and by someone who is very experienced, professional, punctual and also a pleasure to work with. I have hired Edgar for several projects and look forward to several more!

      Chris McDermott did a major remodel of my house in Berkeley (including kitchen and bathroom), increasing the value of my home significantly. Chris can do nearly every aspect of construction, from framing to finish, and knows when to turn it over to subcontractors. Chris is accommodating, hard working, honest, and professional. He's also easy to talk to and fun to be around, and is able to help translate ideas and preferences into an awesome finished product while staying within budget. ~Erin

      We serendipitously found Buck and Maryanne when we bought a couch from them off of Craigs List. We were impressed with their home and when we found out that Maryanne was the designer and Buck the contractor we asked them to come up to our newly purchased former llama ranch. They renovated an upstairs bathroom and a guest annex in the barn (used by the former owners as their primary residence while they built the main house). They did a wonderful job. Right on time and within the budget Buck is a perfectionist and his work is of very very high quality. They are both easy to work with. Never any problems with liens from subcontractors, missed timelines, exploding budget. They easily accounted for all expenses and billing items. When he would leave, the place was immaculate. We hope to have them come back for yet another project - the master bath which needs remodeling.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.  

      What do construction project managers do?

      Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

      The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

      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.

      How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

      It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

      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.
