We had asked several other roofing companies to help us patch our roof but all they wanted to do was sell us a new one. Jason came out and quickly took care of the problem, took pictures so I could see what was wrong, and even tacked some loose shingles for us. He also gave us a very reasonable quote to replace both the house and garage roof. We plan to use them when we are able to replace our roofs. Thank you for the peace of mind going into the winter!

Over the years I have relied on The Painters to help me various jobs at different properties I have in the North Liberty and Iowa City area. Experience, flexibility and cleanliness are just a few of the reasons I have to call on Mr. Mulhern. Getting properties ready in a timely manner is always a concern in my business. No matter how big or small the job is, The Painters address general maintenance inside or outside my properties with complete professionalism and great attitude. Thanks again Todd and company!

We are so happy with our new roof!! Both the house and the garage look great! Chayse worked with our insurance company and it didn't cost us a dime. We had zero issues with the workers. Everything was cleaned up immediately. They were in and out in one day with no leftover mess for us to deal with. Good job!!

Punctual, professional, courteous, reliable. Jason has done a variety of work for me over the past 5 years. Carpentry is his specialty but he has also helped me with plumbing, auto electrical issues, painting, even landscaping. It's hard to know who to believe in when selecting someone to perform an important job these days. You can believe in Jason 100%. The job will be done and done right, to your satisfaction. He is the first person I think of when I need something done that I'm not able to do myself.

I came from Las Vegas to Cedar Rapids to get a house ready for sale. I didn't know any vendors in town and Ron Brooks helped with a lot of tasks. He put a drainage pump in the basement, repaired decking, concrete, fixed the garage door, fixed the gutters, cleaned up the trees and yard, and a quite a few other repairs. He continued to work on the house after I left the state, and the house was sold not long after. I was glad to find Ron Brooks and would absolutely work with him again.

    Marshall and his crew did an excellent job putting an addition onto our garage. He handle everything from pulling the permits, putting up the structure, working in coordinating getting the roofing and gutters put on , to the final inspection. He kept us posted every step of the way, by emailing and sending text messages. The best thing of all he kept us within our budget.

    The two men that came to help me move did an outstanding job. They emptied an entire garage full of furniture, boxes, and odds and ends and moved them into my apartment. They were very careful with my prize possessions, which I really appreciated. They arrived on time and were extremely personable. Caleb and Abraham did an awesome job!! I would highly recommend this company!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.  

    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.
