Ellal came to my house to fix my faucet, after explaining the situation he immediately knew what the problem was and it was fixed in about 10 minutes, he was honest and didn't try to tell me other things were wrong with my faucet to get more money that was quoted. I hired him to complete other projects in my home

Sam was hired to replace my utility sink and faucet in the laundry room and repair the wall behind it. I then decided additionally to replace the existing floor with porcelain tile. Sam worked tirelessly and the job was done in two days. He was very professional and courteous and went above and beyond what was expected. He obviously has a lot of knowledge about many types of materials and repairs and improvements. He also left the work area very clean. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again in the future.

Tom from TAF has been a pleasure to work with to say the least. I originally hired him for snow removal services at a property that I manage and have since consulted with him for a new project. He is very honest in his work and I would highly recommend his company.

Joe and his brother did an awesome job installing crown molding in my house! They were very particular in their work in order to provide me with the best craftsmanship possible. I was particularly impressed with their communication and attention to detail. The cost for installation and materials was most reasonable. Joe and Frankie were very personable as well as trustworthy. I would welcome them back anytime in the future to complete additional projects in my home.

I give my highest recommendation to Jake Esh and his team. Polite, professional, prompt - followed through on each and every detail of the project. The workmanship on my Trex deck is the best that I've seen. Not a single screw, fastener or flaw can be seen. The attention to detail was superb. Jake explained every option of each detail for approval prior to moving ahead with the work. He also fixed a roof leak that has been plaguing our house since we moved in - and did so at a very reasonable price. We had some good choices in deck builders as we conducted our search, but now that the project is completed we are convinced that we definitely made the right choice with Stoney Ridge Home Improvements. We'll be asking them back this spring to look at our other renovation projects we have planned.

We had an awesome experience with Mike of Umberger Contracting. He was very responsive, punctual and professional. He did quality work on our window screens. While other contractors were willing to do the work, they were not willing to think outside the box and use materials that were not the norm per our request. We would and will use Umberger Contracting for more of our home projects in the future!

In January I had the Rebolledo family do some renevations for my new home. The renovations entailed a master bathroom shower remodel, bathroom floor tiling, painting of multiple rooms, crown molding installations, and a few plumbing repairs. They did a great job. When Jeovonie and his father came to give me and estimate they were very professional and timely. They took measurements on site and wrote down all the supplies and amounts they would need to completely the job. I found this extremely helpful and organized. Whatever supplies I was unable to get Jeovonie got for me. They gave me a two week estimate for completion which was extended due to weather conditions. The work they do is very good but, me being OCD and very particular I did find a few imperfections but, things I can live with. I felt the price was decent. They were also very protective of my wood floors and made sure they sweep and cleaned up every evening before leaving which I was very appreciative of. I provided them with a copy of my house key that they returned at the end of the job. They were very trustworthy and I allowed them to do work with no one home. I would recommend them to anyone and I would ask them back for any other projects I'd like done in the future. Thank you!!

We hired GCI to update our entire house , from the cellar to the third floor. New rugs , floors, paint,new bathroom and kitchen and a total clean up for the entire house. Updates were made to the plumbing and electrical systems. Perry and his crew were excellent. They showed up every day on time, they were respectful and kind to my entire family. They did beautiful work. Perry was always available to talk to with any questions. The crew worked quickly and we trusted them 100 percent. I was reluctant to start such a large project but Perry and his crew were there for us from start to finish. They made our house a home and I will be forever grateful to them. They went above and beyond their duties every day. Our family has a better life and we couldn’t be happier with our new home . Thank You Perry and crew !!!!!

CJ was terrific. His work was excellent and was very reasonably priced. He constructed a built in bookcase and cabinet for us and was here almost every day for over a week to get the project complete in a very quick manner. I would definitely use him again for any projects in my home.

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.
