Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best general contractor in Atlanta?

Finding the best general contractors in Atlanta requires a bit of research. First, read customer reviews online to gauge the contractors' past performance, professionalism and communication.

It’s important to make sure your contractor is up to date on all their licenses and insurance, so don’t be afraid to ask contractors for this information. You can also search online to find out if the general contractor has a state license.

Lastly, ask several general contractors in Atlanta to give you a free estimate for your project. Gathering price quotes will help you hire the best contractor who’s also the most affordable.

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.

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 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.

Reviews for Atlanta home addition contractors
Please do your research prior to hiring Christian Brother Remodeling (CBR) and Bobby R. Young. These are factual statements based on my experience. Before hiring CBR or Bobby Young for your home project, ask to see their current business license; make sure it's not expired. Next, ask for his proof of liability insurance, and make sure it too is current- be sure to add yourself to his liability insurance policy if you do hire CBR. Next, ask to see his general contractors license for the state of GA, and make sure the license is to Christian Brother Remodeling, and that it's current. Lastly, check the GA Secretary of States official website, to verify that Christian Brother Remodeling is a registered business in the state of GA. Taking these extra steps will hopefully help assist in making your contractor decision less stressful and more assuring. My personal experience was dreadful with CBR/Bobby Young, of which I had to file a criminal theft warrant for theft. Bobby is currently under a Justice Center of Atlanta mediation repaymemt plan for thousands of dollars received for services never rendered/provided. Bobby failed to return funds paid to him after multiple requests were made, therefore a criminal warrant application was filed against him. CBR/Bobby Young was paid over $66,000 for my renovation project, of which an estimated $20-30K of work was completed; and the majority of that work was done incorrectly based on review of other general contractors. I had to spend an additional $25-35K, just to correct the multiple mistakes/overlooks made by CBR during my renovation. Bobby is a masterful salesman of his business and his abilities, but I later found that I was mislead. I found out via an open records request, that CBR/Bobby Young did not even have a general contractors license for the city of Atlanta at the time he began my project. He used another contractors license to pull permits for my renovation. He never disclosed this information. During the period of which Christian Brother Remodeling was hired for my renovation, personal items were also stolen from my home from hired day laborors. Bobby could only apologize for the incident, and promised to "make it right" of which never happened. I could go on and on about the multiple issues with CBR, but I'm not here to write a dissertation on my experience. Overall I lost thousands of dollars by hiring CBR/ Bobby Young, and it was probably the worst decision that I ever made in trying to renovate my home. Tread with caution, and do your due diligence when hiring any Thumbtack contractor.
