Instant on hot water heater failed due to poor installation by another contractor. Job included consultation, installation to code, upgrade of circuit breaker, addition of junction box, and replacing improper wiring. Background: this is a vacation rental unit I have in Miramar. Guests arrived to find hot water not working. Mr. Raffael took my call at 9:30pm on a Friday, and agreed to be at the unit at around 10am the next morning. He continued to stay in contact the following morning as he progressed towards the house, arrived at the agreed upon time, assessed the situation and provided an estimate of parts, labor and time to complete the job. He completed the work as agreed. Documented it in writing and with pics. In Summary: He helped me in an emergency - accepted a very late call, and quickly delivered a solution. I am 100% satisfied, and would most certainly call on him again, and recommend him to others. Thank you Mr. Raffael.

Edward did a great job for me. He was very timely in his initial response and quoted a fair price that he adhered to. He showed up on time with all materials (I hate it when contractors ask you to buy materials) and did a very clean and thorough job. Would definitely use in the future as it's very difficult to find reliable contractors in S Florida.

Marcelo was so easy to work with and he and his crew were very professional besides being top notch painters. I had quotes from several other companies which were all typically more than I Paint USA but choosing to work directly with the contractor himself rather than a big company sales rep was the right decision. Now my neighbors are jealous and my house looks great! Thank you Marcelo.

I had been looking for painters for a rather difficult job and I needed it done ASAP. I needed a 3 bedroom mobile painted that was previously lived in by a heavy smoker, and I needed to have the job done over the weekend. Out of all the contractors that I met, Fabian was the only one that had no issues meeting my needs. Wet met on a Friday and he was at my house the next day on Saturday at 9am. Fabian and his team (Kevin and Alton) were amazing and so professional. The job was done in a day and a half (other contractors said 4 days). They probably would have finished in one day if there weren't any hiccups. Even though there were some issues that arose they were handled professionally and quickly. I found Fabian to be honest and personable and I personally like that in contracters. I Highly, Highly recommend Fabian and his team. You won't be disappointed.

Through the years, I have engaged numerous contractors to do a variety of projects: plumbing, electrical, framing, roofing, flooring, windows, HVAC, etc. I have become completely familiar with disappointment. W&B Construction was able to complete a tile job that was left behind from another contractor. Gabriel actually hit his schedule right on! It was very clear what was included in the contract and what was not. Any questions were resolved immediately. He was knowledgeable, honest, dependable, and really easy to work with. His work ethic is undeniable. I am so thrilled with the work he have done. I can't say enough good things about this company: more importantly about Gabriel. What a pleasure to work with them! I would not hesitate to recommend Gabriel to anyone! If you are looking for a great contractor, If you want high quality construction done the right way, the first time: look no further!! The result was the most professional project I have ever witnessed among the 20+ contractors.

We provided this vendor 3 very different assignments that required skill sets from several different trades. While the painting task was very straightforward, the tile work and wood planking work required a significantly higher set of skills from the contractor and certain parts of the work called for someone with experience who could do the more difficult cuts and trim in some areas. The work ended up taking significantly longer than expected ( 2 days longer ) but to the credit of the vendor he at no time asked for additional money and even offered to provide a discount because the work was taking longer than he expected ( which was not accepted) . At the end of the day he did a very good job a fair price which is what you expect from a trusted vendor . I deal with contractors on a day to day basis and would recommend that Jobert and his team be on your short list for the right projects . Honesty is a value you cant put a price on and a vendor should be judged not on an easy job but on how he handles a job when he runs in to unexpected issues . Sometimes its easier and less expensive for a vendor to walk away but this vendor chose to do the right thing and make it all right ! . Cudos to Jobert and his team and an "A" for effort .

First, Jhon was very competitive in his price, accommodating to my schedule, and far exceeded what I thought the ceiling could be. I enjoyed working with Jhon and his team. By far exceeded my expectations. I had a house was smoke damaged from years of cigarette smoke. Jhon was able to remove the popcorn ceiling, fix the weak spots in the house, skim coat the ceiling and painted. The house smells new, looks incredible, and I was able to hang ceiling fans. Jhon was very professional, made certain to remove his waste and clean at the end of each visit. I could not have imagined a better contractor to work with. This is going to be my residence for at least ten years, and Jhon was instrumental in making my house into a home for my family. Thank you to Jhon and his team. I'm glad everyday I come home. I will hire you again for the next project.

I hired Richard to paint the exterior of my home. He ended up doing some other patch and repair work because he was so diligent and knowledgeable about his work. It was a pleasure working with him. He communicated clearly what was expected and came through. He ended up having another job that went long, but made sure to get to my job as soon as he could and didn't make me wait. He has a great knowledge base for all things "home" related and it was a pleasure working with him. His prices were reasonable and he got the job done efficiently and effectively. I am very happy with his work and would recommend him to anyone looking for any construction services. He also put cool deck on our upstairs patio that came out very nice. Very professional service and highly recommended!

It was a daily pleasure working with a contractor that had such integrity, honesty. His aim was to make me happy and regardless of what I needed or wanted he was there for me. I do not have enough words to describe his workmanship. He never missed a day until the job was completed. He is truly a 5 star. I would recommend him to anyone and already have.

I called a previously employed contractors named Milan and Son who did a terrible job and destroyed my carpet and bathroom. I had to kick them out of my house. Stay away from Andre and Felix and Antonio. They completely ruined the work. I almost gave up on Thumbtack but I decided to give Thumbtack another chance. So I contacted Rick Ricketts Home Remodeling Repairs. And he came over that same night and took a look at the shoddy work Milan and Son did. Rick said he can correct all the problems and he did a fantastic job. Professional and clean. And he did it for a reasonable price even though there was a lot more work to do. So definitely I would hire Rick again.

We hired Rapid Construction to remodel our pool and patio. They helped turn our dreams into a reality! They stayed on budget and remained in contact throughout the project. Staff is professional and they are very organized. Their pricing wasn’t the cheapest but definitely worth the money. I would reccomend anyone looking for a General contractor to give them a call.

If you are looking for a residential/commercial contractor to provide quality remodeling services in the South Florida area, then you should consider calling Mr. Luis Briceno of the Done-Rite Handyman Service Company in Boca Raton, Florida. Luis is an extremely hard working and efficient professional that you can count on to provide high-quality and reliable services at a fair and reasonable price. I recently had him renovate my home by replacing the entire floor throughout the home with porcelain tile and installing brand new kitchen cabinets that included a complete re-design of the kitchen layout. He also rebuilt the bathroom by removing the old bathtub and antiquated wall tiles and replacing them with a custom built shower with sliding glass doors and brand new tiling from floor to ceiling. Luis and his team work independently throughout the home performing all electrical, plumbing, carpentry, drywall, stucco and painting work to eliminate the need for having to deal with more than one company to complete a project. He is extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating in all aspects of operations. I highly recommend contacting him if you are interested in remodeling your home or office.

After months of searching and a dozen of estimates, we decided to hired this company to remodel our guess bathroom. At first I was skeptical to go with a private contractor, but am glad I did. Alex and his team did an excellent job with the remodeling. He quoted us a detailed fair price. He was very professional from beginning to end. He gave us professional advise and guidance when it came to pick out tile, material, even design. This man worked extra hours to make sure our project was complete in a timely manner. Being a picky person that I am, I honestly don't have any complaints about this company. I am very HAPPY AND SATISFY with the end result. I would definitely recommend this company and I plan on using them on my upcoming project. ps. Not sure why the picture are side ways!!

I contacted Sunset to get a proposal for renovating a kitchen. Their response was excellent. The contractor and the electrician both came out to review the kitchen. I received the proposal quickly and it was very thorough. Alonso has some great ideas on layout and the overall looks. I am still in the planning stages, but I do recommend this contractor for their response, knowledge, and assistance.

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.

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.

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.

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.
