The contractor correctly diagnosed that the reason my gutters were leaking is the drip edge was on the top of the underlayment and the underlayment needed to be on top of the drip edge. He was honest and told me the underlayment needed to be fixed all the way around the roof and he didn't have time that day so he charged me a reduced rate for just doing the inspection. I contacted my roofing company and they sent someone out to fix it at no cost to me so I was very happy to benefit from the contractors expertise! The contractor was late to our appointment though otherwise I would have given him 5 stars.

I originally hired KMA to do some work on my gutters, but it ended up that the job required a contractor. He was very gracious and actually came out two times to verify if he could do it, and did not bill me. I found this to be very honest and refreshing.

I hired David for a few projects last summer when we were doing a bunch of updating. First he extended our gas line to the kitchen for our new gas range. He also replaced the A/C and then installed a new sink for us as well. His team was great--very friendly, professional and considerate. Some contractors seem like they want to get it done and get out, but they were obviously invested in doing it right and they responded to every special request we made. When the range didn't quite fit the gas line, David even came back to adjust it and did not charge for it. And he stayed in touch with me to make sure we got the A/C warranty stuff done right. I'll contact him again when we need help.

We had several contractors bid on our demo and possible remodel for our master bedroom and bath. We knew we were going to hire Forest after the first few minutes! He is very professional. He is honest and we instantly had confidence and trusted him. I was surprised that the demo was completed early and with very little dust! We were impressed how hard he and his team worked - never taking a break. We're working with him to complete our project and are very excited about the ideas and attention to detail that he is providing. Thank you Forest!

I contacted Mountaintop Construction out of the blue because my office was having communication issues with another small contractor for our small handyman needs around the office. Steve Petersen contacted me almost immediately and after seeing what quality work he does, as well as having excellent communication with us, I let Steve know that we would be using his company for all of our handyman needs in the future. Steve is honest with his pricing and he is able to accommodate any schedule. I would highly recommend Mountaintop Construction to anyone!

Ryan Witt installed patio cover for my home. It was a substantial patio 30x10 ft. Ryan did outstanding work and was extremely professional. Ryan was able to translate our request and anticipate our requirements and produce quick estimate. Ryan was also extremely flexible and able to adjust project as it evolved and was able to adjust and add the finishing touches we requested. Project turned out great. Bottom line: Ryan is 5 star contractor. I would highly recommend him to others. He works well with other tradesmen and with inspectors. Ryan delivers quality product in a timely manner at a reasonable price.

We just made a major move across the country and were looking forward to make significant renovations on our 1963 house. We contacted 3 different contractors whose bids were so high that we were shocked and put off. We decided to try one more time and contacted Anaid Enterprises. We were relieved when we met Leroy because he put us completely at ease and informed us that many of our projects could be handled within our budget. Leroy was extremely professional, courteous and patient as he helped us prioritize our decision-making process. His in-depth knowledge of contracting, costs and materials was the ideal formula for us and allowed to finish our projects in a timely manner. We were relieved how diligent Leroy was about showing up on time each day. This put us at ease and let us relax about getting competent work in a timely fashion. We were thrilled by the final product and would not hesitate to hire Anaid Enterprises again. Thanks Leroy!

Hire This company! Hire Jake & his brother! I had the nightmare of nightmare general contractors come into my home and leave it in shambles. The electrical was left dangerously disorganized. Jake and his brother showed up and worked around the clock to make sure the whole house was 100% safe and ready to go for me and my family. It feels great knowing people like Jake have your back and will make your home safe secure modern and functioning exactly as you like. I’ll use these guys again and again. Thanks for your work guys!

It can be difficult to get contractors' attention, especially on small projects. Drywall King of Denver (aka Kevin) made an appointment to come out within a day of my posting on Thumbtack. He committed to price and a schedule when I agreed to his estimate. He used the Thumbtack website tools to provide updates on his availability, which came via email, and met all our expectations. When the job was slightly larger, we worked together to agree on the additional cost. Kevin is great to work with. I will definitely use him again!

Simply put, I consider Don with Zigler Building Systems an Excellent General Contractor and a man of integrity… “That will handle everything and get it done.” Period. Without wasting any extra time or money. I have also been in the construction industry for a great many years. I know the drill well and understand the process. Don has a passion for attention to detail and an excellent sense of high quality workmanship. My project was substantial covering many weeks. A basement re-construction project which required all aspects of construction. I spoke with Don about the overall plan and my thoughts and considerations, he then went to work. Handling any/all day to day decisions by himself, without the need to consult with me. This was perfect as I placed my complete trust in Don and he completely delivered. I felt completely comfortable with Don in our home. I HIGHLY recommend Zigler Building Systems for ANY construction project. Consider it handled!

Highly recommend! Hired Elevated Construction for a clean-up after a roofing company left a giant mess in our garage. Nick and Rusty arrived early, they were efficient and professional. Although this job was below their skill sets and a bigger job than anticipated, they went above and beyond to carefully clean up all the mess and put our storage items back so much better than the movers had done it! We have 35% more space after they were done! We will be having Elevated Construction back for skilled jobs- it's not easy to find a great contractor and small company in this market, and they exceeded our expectations!!

Brett, and team, completely renovated my old (1942) basement including new floors, drywall ceiling, lighting, painting, tile work, and much more. The attached pictures show the high quality of their work, but that is just the surface. Brett is unlike any other contractor I've met. He is extremely professional, quick in communication, always has a positive attitude, and was a joy to work with. Brett was full of recommendations and advice, and made this project feel like a partnership instead of a burden on my shoulders. I highly recommend Brett as a partner for any home renovation project you are looking to tackle.

Daniel has a wonderful heart. He has a few employees, which allow him to take-on more than one job at a time. However, one employee became sick, which set our project back a few days, as Daniel was forced to work on his own, or with less help. We were in a crunch, as we had another contractor scheduled. Although he became ill, himself, Daniel pressed-on and was able to complete our project, just in time. Daniel does nice tiling work and Has reasonable prices.

Kevin and his team did an outstanding job on a very complicated and difficult drywall patch and repair project at a retail building we manage. Their bid was fair and the completed the project promptly. I've used them since on a 9,000 square foot ceiling tile demo project at another building. Again, their bid was fair, they did great work and they did it quickly. We will continue to use them for our commercial projects.

James and Gina responded very quickly and came out for an estimate. James has very good ideas and is very engaging. He has MANY years of experience and is very knowledgeable. While he came out for our kitchen we discussed deck designs! He is very professional and his company can handle any job. He is well versed in trending styles and designs. The estimate was right in line with other contractors. An excellent family-run/owned company.

Cannot say enough great things about Scott and his colleague! They were professional, had great ideas and actually cleaned up the mess created from their work! We are in the process of finishing our basement (hence wanting to cut the window wells) and our general contractor was so impressed with Scott that he asked for his information to use him in the future. This is probably way more of a testament to his workmanship than my layperson’s opinion. :)

Eddie was a pleasure to work with. I called around for quotes and he was the only one who brought samples with him and gave me a choice of the type/size of pickets. He also included the stain with my purchase, which wasn't even an option with the other contractors. He completed the work in the agreed amount of time. He really paid attention to detail and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I had a large project and he had the best price around ($4000 lower than major companies like Lowes). I had 274 sq ft of fence (200 sq of existing fence and 74 of new fence.)

Shane and ALL his guys are truly the best! They are kind and very thorough, extremely detail oriented but also flexible, accommodating and trustworthy . We had a horrible experience with a contractor that did our job completely wrong and Burke construction and design inc came in and made us feel confident and fixed everything that was wrong and restored our faith in contractors. Contractors often get a bad reputation but Shane and his company are changing that reputation! Take a chance on them, it will be more than worth it!

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.  

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.

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.

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.

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.
