Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 Englewood basement professionals

This review is long overdue. Over a year ago Daniel and his team completely finished our unfinished basement. As an older house there are unexpected issues and he handled them quickly and at a fair price. I could not be happier with the final product and I plan to use him again.

We hired Daniel to turn an unfinished portion of our basement which was currently being used as our laundry area into a bathroom. If we could give 0 stars we would. The list is too long for a post; however, if you would like a list that we have already prepared and images, contact us at Don't be fooled like we were by the 4 and 5 star reviews. Additional comment added to the original above: Daniel, I highly suggest you stop revising your response to our review and stop any further contact with us. #1, we paid you WAY too much for the disaster you left behind. The last check which you were denied was because we stopped payment on the check which we advised you of when we did so. This check should have NEVER been given to you in the first place just like the 3 before that we did allow for you to cash in hopes that things would turn around. Also, this would have been the final check which as agreed to, was not due until the work was complete which was not going to happen. Not only do we have our own pictures, but also those of the new contractor who had to fix EVERY single thing you touched even after we gave you multiple attempts to fix them on your own. We have been told that you could have poisoned our family because you didn't even bother to put a pee trap in and there were several leaks left behind, in addition to the fact that the floor and shower tiles had ZERO material to adhere to. They were placed and then grouted, that's it! the shower would have crumbled in 2 weeks and the floor would have shifted to pressure. This is not to mention that we would have been trapped in the egress window you installed because of the completely incorrect way you jammed the grate on the top, which the owner of that company has had to resolve for us b/c you damaged the grate so much. These are only a couple of the things on our list of 50+ items. Truly the entire job is unbelievable.To say we were difficult is completely absurd is a joke and we have not complained about a single other contractor we have ever worked with. When we tried to communicate with you, you even told us to "chill out" and proceeded to hang up on us. Our current contractor has highly recommended litigation. There is obviously a reason why you ask for so much money up front unlike our current contractor who doesn't want a penny until he is finished. Not to mention that we have not been able to verify your claim of being licensed, bonded and insured. Again, for those interested in details we are happy to provide facts. Tired of this and DONE!
