The team was right on time! Very friendly staff and they got the job done quick and easy. Luke was excellent and he helped clear up a vent that was not working at all. I’d highly recommend them to anyone and will definitely look to them for future projects.

Grandview Construction put in a new microwave and vented it to the outside. They did an excellent job. The vent goes through the existing cabinet and out the top. They built a box to hide the pipe that matches the cabinets very well. They also replaced two lights for us. We would hire them again and recommend them to others.

I needed gutters cleaned that were moderately dirty but a couple downspouts on the upper level, in particular, that were very bad. Timely work done and done well. Downspouts were unplugged using his chimney rotary brush followed by a leaf blowing of all the gutters and most of this occurred on the second story gutters. Now we don't have to watch our gutters on the upper level overflowing when it rains. Very competitive rates compared to others Thank you, Kerry and Gary!

We hired Jay and his team to paint our interior house trim from a dark wood stain to white (baseboards, window frames, everything!) along with several full rooms and some exterior trim as well. After assessing 4 bids on this large project, J & S was by far the best value! The team came every day at the expected time and worked well into the evening every day. Even after we agreed upon the price and scope of the project, we noticed other little things that needed to be done and Jay was more than willing to help us with resources (if he couldn't do it) or reasonable adjustments to the bid to complete the work. We hired them as painters but they ended up doing much more! They repaired plaster work on our ceiling which we had already paid a guy to do but he couldn't match the texture. After J&S did it, you couldn't even tell there was a problem. They painted our interior exterior doors. They painted the gables high up on our roof and although Jay had to bring in a lift so they could access the room safely, he never budged on the agreed to price. We hired them to install a backsplash in our kitchen. Jay helped us find economically priced granite countertops that saved us thousands of dollars. The whole time, Jay and his brother Saed were always cheerful and very pleasant to work with. The were punctual, worked very hard, were extremely accommodating, and did it all for a very reasonable price. High quality and great value is what I got from J&S Painting. I'd definitely hire them again.

Bill and his team did a great job for the challenging project they took on (cleaning & repairing A LOT of very dirty commercial blinds). The project took a bit longer than we all initially thought it would because it was difficult job. But they got it done, and done VERY well, and under the estimated cost. I will call Bill again for future projects. Thank you for a job well done. I am very pleased.

Guy, with Hoss Heating & Cooling, did a phenomenal job of explaining the service. He was punctual and professional while servicing my air conditioner and furnace and the prices are very reasonable. I would highly recommend Hoss Heating & Cooling and will continue to use them for my future air conditioner and furnace needs.

I had a sump pump that needed to be replaced and he did a great job. This was for a rental home that I own out of state and he was easy to work with, provided an estimate in advance and guided me on the best sump to purchase. He was VERY reasonable in price, cleaned up after himself and was a professional. He's on my list for the next project.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

How long does it take to get your ducts cleaned?

The amount of time air duct cleaning takes can depend on how extensive your duct system is, how old your air ducts are, and whether they have ever been cleaned. On average, expect a standard size home (between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet) to take 2-5 hours for one to two technicians to clean. Here are the proper protocol and equipment you should expect from a professional duct cleaning service, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency:

  • All doors and access ports opened to ensure the entire duct system is inspected and cleaned.
  • Thorough system inspection prior to cleaning to identify possible asbestos-containing materials. If asbestos is present, specially trained and equipped contractors must do the removal.
  • Use of approved vacuum equipment that exhausts particles outside of your house. If the vacuum exhausts inside your home, it must be HEPA equipment.
  • Furnishings and carpet covered and protected.
  • Soft-bristled brushes only on fiberglass duct board and sheet metal ducts internally lined with fiberglass.
  • Ductwork properly protected.
  • Adherence to guidelines and practices set down by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.

How much does it cost to replace air ducts in a house?

If your air ducts have been damaged, you’ll need to replace them. The national average air duct replacement cost is $150-$280, which may not include materials. Factors such as duct material, labor, location of ducts and linear feet of ductwork will all affect your final costs. Labor costs will vary based on how accessible the ducts are and what material your ducts are made of. The least expensive duct material is a flexible, non-metallic ducting that costs approximately $1-$2 per linear foot. Flexible aluminum is generally more expensive and stronger than non-metallic ducting. Stainless steel ducting is the strongest, the least flexible (meaning installing it typically has higher labor rates), and usually the most expensive. An average price for air duct replacement could range between $35 and $55 per linear foot, including basic materials and labor. A typical single-family home has 6-10 duct runs; replacing or installing one duct run could average $150-$250 for labor.

How much does it cost to have your air ducts cleaned?

If you’re concerned about dust, allergens or mold, it may be time to have your air ducts cleaned. The national average cost for air duct cleaning ranges from $190 to $250. Air duct cleaning costs will vary based on a number of factors such as your location in the country, the age and condition of your air ducts, the number of linear feet to be cleaned, and any repairs your ducts may need. HVAC cleaning companies should clearly outline what is included in their services and at what rate, so always make sure you understand and have a written agreement before work begins. Here are some examples of average air duct cleaning costs:

  • Tiered pricing for different levels of service:
    • Standard cleaning: $100, which may include truck-mounted industrial vacuums, high-pressure air wands and air snakes to clean all supply and return vents, branch lines, and main trunk lines.
    • Advanced cleaning: $200, which may include standard cleaning services, plus rotobrush or viper clean sweep in the main trunk lines.
    • Ultimate cleaning: $400, which may include advanced cleaning, plus insertion of a viper microline into all vents to force debris down the branch lines and into the main trunk lines, to be handled by the viper clean sweep. Typically, all ductwork surface is contacted, before-and-after photos are provided, and the furnace is cleaned.
  • A flat rate for unlimited vents: $289.
  • Additional fees for larger houses: $20 for each additional 500 square feet over 2,500.
