Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best general contractor in Denver?

To find the best general contractor in Denver for your project, make sure that you have a specific idea of the work you need done. Go online and research a few contractors near you to see if they offer these services. 

Afterward, contact them and discuss your project details. You can ask for a free estimate and check to make sure that they hold the proper insurance and licenses in Denver. 

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a general contractor when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a general contractor, avoid any physical contact, don’t shake hands, keep 6 feet of distance between you and the pro and sanitize all involved surfaces. Also, use digital platforms to communicate and make payments.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

What is the best waterproof flooring for a basement?

There are several great options for waterproof basement flooring. For example, epoxy floors are waterproof but are thicker and sturdier than paint. Make sure the concrete substrate has been prepared for application. 

Tile is a designer’s dream, giving you a moisture-resistant surface that’s infinitely customizable. Rubber sheets or tiles are also good waterproof options, particularly for playrooms, workout areas or laundry rooms. 

Vinyl tiles and planks imitate wood or other materials very convincingly, provide moisture resistance and last a long time. And sheet vinyl is affordable and a great waterproofing solution for those in need of quick fixes.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

Does a general contractor need to enter my home?

Provided the project is located inside your home, completing the job would require a general contractor to enter your home. But if your project is located outdoors, a general contractor will likely not need to enter your home. Discuss your options with general contractors in your area before hiring.

Reviews for Denver basement professionals

JG and Curtis of Made Right Builders do great work! They turned our unfinished basement that was just an empty weight room into a framed bedroom with an egress window. They worked as quiet as possible in the basement to make sure the rest of our house was not in a construction zone while they were working.

Very happy with the basement remodel performed by Jacques and his guys. They kept me informed of the project status every step of the way, and were professional and courteous. I will definitely hire Resilient for my next project.

I would have checked all, but I’m allowed only 3! Daniel and his crew did an excellent job on our egress window and a room in the basement. They look great, the guys were professional and friendly and quick. I would call them again for work, you should too.

Tom and his crew from Envision Building Group did a great job with our home remodel project - taking down the main load bearing wall in our house, replaced with a beam supported by posts from attic to basement. Tom was responsive and engaged throughout the entire project. He and his crew did a great job executing the engineer’s plans.

Daniel and his crew rebuilt portions of our basement after we had to install a pumping system to mitigate ground water seepage throughout. Daniel responded promptly, and arranged the schedule in a very timely fashion. The work was exceptional, small and large problems solved with equal attention to detail, and the crew finished a day ahead of schedule! Thank you, Daniel, it was a pleasure to do business with you!

Kyle was a complete pleasure to work with. He was always most concerned with what I wanted and if I wad happy with everything throughout the entire process of finishing my basement. If I had a concern or question, he addressed it right away and always communicated in a timely manner about any issues that may have come up. The finished product is exactly what I had in mind, only better! We are loving our new space~

Working with Tyler at Hawaiian Handyman was SO great! He finished our entire basement & loft (drywall, paint, ceiling install, floor install, electrical box, TV install, tile repair, shower door install) and it all looks fantastic!! He was obviously skilled & experienced in a variety of areas and he really tackled all of the projects we tossed at him. He was responsive, communicative, timely, and a pleasure to work with~ We won’t hesitate to contact him for all future home renovations & repairs!

Hired Ray and CRM to do a small front porch project and basement project. Ray quoted us a three day job that ended up taking three and a half months. He also required a 50% deposit up front and didn't commence work on the projects until several weeks later after several emails asking for updates on when he'd start the work. It'd be one thing if the work was high quality but it was very average and very delayed and required constant project management on our part. Expectations were set way too high and deadlines were constantly missed and Ray was extremely patronizing all along the way. We do not recommend this company.
