Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

I chose Grayson Construction for our basement project, because their quote was a better value than the other estimate. They did qualitative work and communicated right away. Would definitely work with them again!

We contracted Wellness Group to remodel our basement in Denver. We liked the quote and Matt and Sean the lead contractor seemed to be honest and forthright with us. This did not end up being the case. The project was supposed to last 6 weeks, but ended up being closer to 10 weeks. What they don’t tell you is they drive up from Colorado Springs every day, so they don’t get to your place until between 10 and 12. Then they often leave between 3 and 4, so virtually nothing gets done on time. They have horrible communication, so they tell you all the things that are supposed to happen that week, then none of it gets done and you are left not knowing what is going on. With all of that I probably would have given them 3 stars because we do like the work they did, but when they finally finished they were trying to add on $6k of additional costs to what we had in our signed contract, of which they never once said they would charge us for anything additional. They have since reduced that to $1.7k, but it is still costs that we were not aware they were going to charge us. Overall a horrible experience just trying to deal with them and I would not recommend them, even though we actually like the way the basement turned out.
