Kelvin showed up at 7am after I put our project on at 8pm the night before. He got the job done very quickly and did a great job! Will definitely use again for any plumbing needs.

Jenrri did an absolutely fantastic job with installing a backsplash in my kitchen! We exchanged messages on Thumbtack, with pictures of the project area, he gave me a firm price and time to complete the job. We arranged for him to come by to physically look at the area; he specified what additional materials to buy (we searched exactly what was needed on the Home Depot app, so I did not have to waste time guessing the correct variation). He showed up at the planned times, and is very meticulous and detail-oriented. I selected an arabesque tile pattern, which is more time and labor intensive than a standard subway tile pattern. Jenrri took great care in cutting the right size tile for the electrical outlets and borders. His attention to detail shows in the finished product (he extended the tile above the visible space, so the tiling looks smooth). I am very impressed with his work and will ask him back for any other work around my apartment!! Thank you, Jenrri!

We hired Erick's service for deep cleaning our house prior to listing it for sale. Previous experiences with other cleaning services have been hit or miss so we were a bit anxious, given that a good cleaning job is really important for the house to show well for sale. I cannot praise Erick's team of two women (his family in part) enough for the cleaning job they did in our house. I will give you specific examples which portray their exceptional work - 1. we recently touched up paint on the walls and a few drops probably spilled on the floor. His crew went down on the floor to scrub minute drops off while vacuuming/mopping our hardwood floor; 2. They took out the glass receptacles off the light fixtures and washed them to make them appear new (and they never were so clean when we lived in the house!). 3. They opened the windows and dusted and wiped off dirt from the outside of the window. 4. Bathrooms and kitchen with granite counter top were spotless and shiny! We believe the house shows very well to make the best impression for potential buyers. I will strongly recommend Erick and his team for cleaning services, and actually like the fact that it is a small, family run venture as opposed to the large scale cleaning services. SLV

I contracted Caldas Jr Home Improvement to refurbish my new apartment and it has been a great investment into my future home. These guys have been excellent throughout the project, providing high quality remodeling geared to my personal taste. They have been very reliable, professional and reasonably priced. I would definitely contract them again for another project and would recommend their services to anyone seeking to remodel their home.

Jorge did an awesome job on my staining and painting project. Bonus points for working around the other contractors who were putting in pavers and fixing concrete work on site. I feel I got an excellent price. And finally I was impressed that he kept me updated. He did everything right. Great job. Will call again.

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

We actually decided not to use American's service for this time around, but I want to give them a good review for their time and effort in explaining contracting to us as first-timers remodeling a basement. Mike and Richard were very knowledgeable and accommodating. I really like Mike's vision of what he could do with the basements, the options he provided, and his suggestions. It was a tough choice and while someone else fit us better in the end, I still recommend their service and may use them myself one day. I know this wont be my last project!

Ixin did a great job on my basement!! It was an eye sore and a wreck; which my 6 yr old niece and 9 yr old nephew called "the scary basement". Now it's a space we can be proud of again! My wife and i couldn't be happier. Thanks Ixin (and your crew) for all the hard work! I will be hiring him for more projects in the future. AL

They showed up on time to replace a series of irregularly-shaped broken tiles. As the broken towels were removed the job expanded as other tiles were not holding in place due to poor craftsmanship on the part of the previous installers. . Due to this, the labor cost had to increase. The price increase was reasonable and the length of the job on a Saturday was also reasonable.

I used K&A months prior for interior painting. They did a good job, and after finding difficulty finding the right company to replace my floor, I called K&A. They did a very professional job. I was concerned at first because my experience with other contractors made me realize that I have to watch them to ensure the work gets done properly. However with Erika, She does treat the work like it’s her own house. I really appreciate that and the outcome. I would definitely recommend K&A as a trustworthy contractor.

AB Solution Home Services was punctual, professional, and made sure work was quality work. The crew was very careful not to cause any unnecessary damage and cleaned up every day. They were polite and hard working. Josue (owner) was always professional and very responsive. He would call to check on my satisfaction and to go over the next steps. Very informative and had good suggestions. A lot of contractors that I have worked with had an "I don't care" attitude. Josue did care and worked with his crew to make sure they cared and always did the right thing. I plan on hiring AB Solution to do more work in my home in the near future. thank you Josue and Crew for the good experience! Photos to come...

I have used B2B on 3 occasions thus far. Brown-Bey is amazing! I'm so glad that I am found him on Thumbtack. I recently moved into a renovated house. Unfortunately, the plumber hired by the flipper was terrible. Brown-Bey efficiently and professionally corrected or helped troubleshoot issues left over from the former plumber. Brown-Bey is an excellent communicator and highly dependable. His prices are very reasonable compared to other plumbers yet his work is top notch quality. I will definitely continue to use him for my plumbing needs. I highly recommend him for any plumbing job!

I did not hire this company because their estimate was one of the highest in comparison to other 10+ licensed/insured contractors I met. While I did not hire them, they were responsive and offered designing advice which I appreciated but disagreed with :) I can't speak to the quality of their work, but the consult was fine. Received estimate in timely manner as well. Thanks for coming in.

Carlos renovated our whole townhouse, before we put it on the market. He did all the flooring, bathrooms, paint, carpet, and many more. It was so good to work with him. His price was the best and the quality of the work was awesome! He was always available via phone or email which was great too. I would totally work with him again. He made our move from VA to WA much easier and less stressful! Keep up the good work, Carlos!

Gustavo has made a few renovations in my house. As soon as we moved in, he renovated the two bathrooms. The job was clean, the final product was great and best of all it was made on time. After that, he changed the floor of the main entrance of the house and built a 14'x17' concrete patio in the back yard, including the removal of a window and the installation of a French door to the patio. A great addition to the house!! Home Beautiful Renovations & Repairs did wonderful jobs in our home. And without a doubt I will recommend them.

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.
