We had a small fire at house and Hector came to investigate our home as soon as I called. He explained us how wiring should be and what was wrong with ours, he fixed it for us in a very efficient and professional manner. I would recommend him for anyone who needs electrical services and we would use his service again when in need. Thank you so much!!

We had Bryan and his crew guide us through our first major home remodel. 1200 sq ft town home. demo throughout, install tile floors, bathroom remodel, paint, and a few other things like adding doors, some electical, etc. Bryan was the first to respond, his crew was always on time or early, very professional and courteous. Never once did we feel worried about leaving his team unattended in our home. We were really impressed with the end result and we are really happy we went with him instead of someone else. Bryan is a super busy guy, so if he doesnt answer your call, he gets back to you ASAP. We were really nervous to take on such a large project, but they were able to keep us in budged and on our very strict timeline. I was also impressed with Bryans dedication to satisfy us, as with any large project on a 20-30 yr old home, there are unanticipated setbacks, again Bryan worked with us to meet our goals in time and under budget. We tried to save some money and paint the ceilings ouselves, but we wound up having one of his painters come in at the last minute and it looks top notch. Highly recommended! Skilled and professional workmanship. I think his workers are more like family rather than employees so it was good to have the local ohana touch as well. When we decide to install our windows we will get in touch with them again.

George did a great job painting our house, we got it sold within one week that it was on the market and had a number of compliments on the work that was done. He is also a great handy man who can do any trade that you need. Roof repair, flooring installation, electrical work, the man can do it all! I'll definitely use him again in the future for any of my listings that need some handy work done.

I am very happy with the work that was done. We had a sidewalk and fence/gate replaced while adding a lanai. We also had a rock garden added to separate the lawn from the split A/C units and home. Complete Masonry did everything. I would definitely hire Loni and his crew again.

Mario did a great job on all of our projects from installing cabinets and building a storage shed to drywall, painting, concrete leveling, and installing vinyl and hardwood flooring. He is punctual, conscientious, well-mannered, and friendly. His experience and attention to finish detail really shows by the quality work he produces. The best way to really know the truth of what a client thinks of a contractor is if they hire him again. And we already have hired Mario to continue working on our on-going remodeling projects. My mom even created a new project for Mario to do: build a small home for her two little dogs!

I would like to give my highest recommendation for Andrew Calma. I met Andrew about ten years ago when he was working for Consolidated Painting and they were painting a dementia care facility that I was building. When I needed to have my house painted I contacted the manager of the painting company to see if they could help me. Because they did not do residential projects he referred me to Andrew to do the job as a side project. Since then, Andrew has painted the exterior of my house two times and painted the interior once. He also did quite a bit of extra work to remove a lot of rusty nails and such that have deteriorated over the last 14 years. Andrew is honest, dependable, knowledgeable and hard working. My wife and I have two young girls. I trust Andrew and his crew to be in my house with my family when I'm not home and I trust him to work in my house when nobody is home. I have also found the other painters that assist Andrew to be courteous and professional. I have found Andrews prices to be very reasonable for the quality of work that is provided. I plan to continue to use him as long as he is providing this service. Andrew is a great resource.

I hired CJ's Toolbox to powerwash my exterior walls and roof as it was getting covered in moss and mold. They did an amazing job. The whole house looked almost like new! They showed up on time and finished in about 7 hours. They even powerwashed my driveway for free. Only thing I wasn't sure about is they used bleach to kill the mold. But, they assured me that it was diluted with water so it was safe and even moved my plants and things out the way so they weren't damaged. After they were done they put everything back as it had been. Overall great service. Very happy customer here.

Hawaii Custom Install

The job was to redo the inside of the house including removal of all ceiling popcorn, painting 3 bedrooms, upgrading electrical, enhance laundry area and painting, gutting and renovating kitchen & bar including replacing and adding new appliances, changing electrical, painting family room & living room and gutting garage and installing cabinetry, electrical, upgrading lighting and painting; installing new electrical fuse box. They came across a water leak in the laundry that had most likely been there since 1979 when the house was built. As a result the hot water flows at every faucet immediately which it had not ever done from before we moved in. They hauled all debris. Hawaii Custom Install management and personnel are extremely pleasant and competent and they subcontracted to dependable painters, electrician, plumber, movers/haulers, ceiling specialist, cabinetry carpenter--all to get the job done smoother and faster and resulted in employing wonderful small business entrepreneurs in the community. When the kitchen was done there was a leak in the roof that caused damage to the new kitchen ceiling and they fixed it once the roofers were done. For the first time since we moved in in 1986, we feel like we are living in a new house--a wonderful feeling.

Skylar (Sky) did an outstanding job painting the exterior and interior of our house. His work is very professional and meticulous. It looks so great. I couldn't be happier with the job he did. Also, he is a very nice guy. He even donated sooner labor to make a sign for a community non-profit.

    Alan is a **total** pro and a house lifesaver! :-) I don't normally write take the time to write online reviews, but in this case I am because I know from past experience how hard it is to find good, trustworthy people to work with, and I feel lucky to have found Alan. I found Alan online and called him for help with repairs on my townhouse, which had been trashed by some bad renters. He showed up the same day, walked through the house with me and gave me options on all of the repairs. He was completely neutral and didn't try to push me on repairs or to spend more money than necessary. The best part is that he's good at *everything* - plumbing, electrical, carpentry - which saved me a ton of money as he was able to repair everything I needed including an electrical circuit for the dishwasher, a hole in the ceiling from a plumbing leak, leaky faucets, broken ceiling fans... and more. He even gutted our master bath (demo work & all!) and installed new tile, a sink and painted. Best of all, he's a sweet, friendly guy who's great to talk story with. Mahalo nui, Alan!

    I was looking to have a fence put up to separate part of my house that I was hoping to rent out. I was on a budget and had for other companies cine and look at the project. Ikaika offered the most affordable way which was a wooden fence. I felt he was very honest with me and wasn't trying to rip me off. He saved me a lot of money and in return I was able to use him for more of my home renovations. He's a hard working young man and did the fence all by himself and all in one day!

    I had a squeaking wooden bed that was in need of an immediate repair. It was driving me nuts. I contacted Eric and he replied back and wanted to know more about the issue. I sent him pics of the issue, he came by the house to look at it in further detail and took measurements of what we needed to fix the squeaking bed. He knew immediately what was causing the bed to squeak and knew what was needed to repair the bed. He cut up some new wooden supports in his shop, got some bigger screws and some felt to put in between the screws to fix the bed. He came by two days later after the initial consult and repaired the bed. The bed is better than new now. I couldn't be more happier. Much mahalo to Eric for the repair. He has a ton of experience in many areas and I will definitely reach out to him with any other handyman needs that we may have in the future.

    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.  

    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.  

    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 much does a project manager charge per hour?

    You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.

    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.
