Many thanks to Shepherd's Painting and Handyman Service for doing excellent work cleaning and in one case even re-hanging my gutters. They weren't in quite as bad of shape as I'd imagined, so he actually revised down his quote by $100 for me--that's an honest businessman who I'd recommend to anybody. Work was done efficiently and appears to be done well.

Honey Do construction has done remodeling projects, exterior stairways on two apartment buildings and a really nice two car garage with living quarters above. They are timely, creative in their designs, happy to listen to requests by homeowner, very competitive in their bids for the project. They are personable and genuinely nice people!! If we still lived in the town they work in we would not hesitate to hire them for our projects!! Sandy McCleary

The team at Homeworx recently redid our deck and fence and we couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out! They were professional to work with from start to finish. We met with several different companies and chose Homeworx because of their experience, professionalism, timely follow up, and reasonable price. We are already looking forward to having them back for our next home improvement project. We highly recommend you consider Homeworx for your next remodeling or handyman project.

Overall I been very satisfied with my experience With DECO Design and RENO. J has been great from the start, very trust worthy, and likable and goes the extra mile to accommodate your situation. He was able to finish my basement to a living area, gym, with deadlift platform and making the squat rack a flat foot so we don't have to drill through the new carpet, and office area. Quality is great and adds the details that most would overlook that adds an extra wow factor. Thank you DECO Design!

      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.
