I have an older house and none of the bedroom doors closed properly. After getting a quote, we hired Walter and he started work two days later. He was very professional and fixed every door perfectly. We will hire him for future projects around our house. I highly recommend him for any carpentry projects you have at your house.

Thiago and his team are amazing! Not only did the offer the most competitive price (by far), they responded promptly to our request for an estimate, came the next day to assess the job and started within days! They also recommended great design ideas that we actually ended up going with their suggestions for almost all the rooms. They finished a day early and were immaculate and polite during the entire process. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for interior, residential painting service!

Herson and his crew did a great job with both the roofing and siding projects. While there are always unexpected things pop up in construction projects, they handled them as best as they could. Despite the 3-4 storms which hindered the work, they did their best to stay close to the schedules.

Al was great. He was incredibly personable, professional, and was able to provide same day service. DC’s value can’t be beat. While I used their junk removal service, I was please to learn that they also provide general contracting services. I’ll definitely be using them in the future.

I hired AJames construction to do a handleful of repair and updating projects. They showed up each morning as they said, did great work, and were extremely polite and professional. I was looking to hire someone who handn't been on tumbtack that long, to give them a chance to build up a reputation, and it absolutely paid off. I will hire them again as needed. They come highly recommended.

Our wood pergola had collasped on one side in our back yard. We had a plan a large outdoor party for around 100 people and needed the perguola to be repaired quickly. We called Molina's Construction corp and they showed up two hours later to assess the damage. The following day they were onsite and started the repair. They finished the job in three days and it looks great. We really appreciate the responsiveness and craftmanship Molina's Construction provided and would use them again in the future.

Home Doctor of America performed a Home Energy Solutions Audit and provided insulation services at my home. His crew was professional, prompt, knowledgeable, and clean. The Home Energy Audit was performed as part of the Energize CT program. It was the best $149 that I could have spent. Just by having the energy audit performed I was able to cut the cost of my insulation project in half. They completed a large job in a weeks time. My energy bills have been drastically reduced. Would highly recommend the Home Doctor of America crew.

We had the pleasure of working with Mark Troiano from CJT Development to build our custom new house. He is everything you would want in your contractor. He made great suggestions and helped keep us stay within our budget. When we met with him to go over out blueprints he came back with ways we could save money and not lose the integrity of our dream home. He did an amazing job sticking to the time table that we discussed previous to starting our build. Mark does an amazing job of explaining the process of everything and stayed in constant contact with us throughout the entire project. He was always available to answer our questions whether it be in person, on the phone, text or email. Mark was always willing to help out where ever it was needed. He is hard working and honest and works with quality subcontractors. Our house came out beautiful and the quality is amazing. I would highly recommend Mark to do any project, and would hire him again in the Here is a link to our home on Houzz http://www.houzz.com/projects/1482269

Jose and his team did a beautiful job on our sunroom. It looks clean, modern, and will for sure be a space our family well enjoys! After he was finished, the work was done, cleaned behind himself, he was paid, and humidity set in and messed something up. He came back the next day to fox it and make sure it wouldnt be a problem again. I HIGHLY recommend Jose and JHS Construction, they'll get the job done well and expediently!

Mike did an excellent job on the design of our home. He was very through, cooperative and patient with us as we worked through our decision process. He also had very good design ideas along the way. Our parents used him also and were very pleased with the outcome. We recommend him for any residential project large or small.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.  

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.  

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.

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
