Keith was able to come in on short notice and work on moving a few outlets and ceiling lights for our kitchen renovation. He was very informative, friendly, and professional. His work was also very tidy. We will hire him again in the future. Thanks Keith!!

Tim came out and gave us a very fair quote. He helped us with multiple major issues related to a complete kitchen remodel and was more than willing to work with our crazy schedule. The price was fair, he was very friendly and efficient. We will use him again.

I met Tom after the first contractor I hired to remodel my home stopped showing up on time and eventually walked off the job. I was in a panic and found Tom on Thumbtack. He was the first person to respond to me and was at my house to give me a quote within 2 hours that same day. I met with 5 different contractors that day and hired Tom because of his professionalism and knowledge of what needed to be done. I was replacing all the floors throughout my home (including 2sets of stairs), re-doing my fireplace, painting the whole house, painting cabinets & rails. Framing and installing a new door and he replaced all of my baseboards throughout my home as well. He was at my house the very next day, like he said he would, with a full crew and getting everything done for me. His prices were extremely reasonable too. It was a huge relief having him there and taking care of things for me! He was like my knight and shining armor and road in on his white horse and totally saved the day for me!! I would highly recommend him to get your job done on time and at a very reasonable price!! Thank you, Tom!!

Master Bathroom remodel done with expertise: demolition, tub, shower, tile, vanity, lights, sink, tile, grout, paint, hardware, faucets, valves. I had a contractor bail on the project, after doing the demolition and building the room (incorrectly). Ron came to the rescue with a professional demeanor, prompt arrival to quote, and explained the work involved. Not only was Ron able to work within the conditions, he reconfigured the other contractor's work to not require a complete demolition again. Ron has a knowledge of building codes and built the bathroom properly, including: reframe shower cubicle, laid concrete backer boards, repaired tub surround, installed tile straight, even, consistent, connected plumbing, electric, fixtures (very heavy stuff, but he handled it well with his colleague). I trusted Ron in my home, with the deposit and he was enjoyable to converse with and let me know in great detail about the project (before performing work). I'm pleased with the results and everything is still working great after 3 months, no leaks and nothing has broken.

Raul and his team were charged with painting the large main areas of our home along with some carpet stair repairs-and they didn't disappoint! Everyone was very friendly, professional, prompt and quick. The team communicated with us every step of the way to ensure that the project was completed to our liking. I would recommend Ram to anyone and we will certainly consider them for our next home renovation project!

My wife and I needed 3 closet doors put in our bedrooms and I found Brandon on this app. Read reviews about his company before contacting him. The good reviews were right. He came by to give an estimate and it was fair price and he sent his partner Kyle to do the work the next few days. Kyle was always 15min early and very kind and very respectful person. And if you need to step out of your house to do some errands, you can for sure trust him. The quality work they give you will be 100% right we were more than thankful for there service. I highly recommend them to do any renovations or repairs in your home! Thanks Kyle for everything...

We had an absolutely stellar experience with Bruce and his team at Genesis Construction. It was our first renovation project we have taken on as homeowners, and we were comfortable immediately with Bruce's professionalism, punctuality, and positive, can-do attitude to be sure the jobs were done right and to our satisfaction. We have already recommended them to friends and will absolutely plan to use them again on future projects! The Genesis team is awesome! Thank you, Bruce et al, for the fantastic work - we love our new bathrooms! :)

I was very pleased with Elite Renovations with their professionalism, their knowledge, attention to detail, they are extremely hardworking and always on time. My neighbors and family members were impressed with how our house has changed so much for the better and wanted Elite Renovations information. If the house we purchase needs any work we will hire Elite Renovations again.

Jim and his team did a fantastic job. After many failed attempts several contractors to repair a leaky roof, Jim and his team were able to immediately identify the source of the leak and repair the problem. Advantex is a company built on honesty, strong work ethic and superior craftsmanship! I would definitely recommend Jim and his team at Advantex for your project!

Tom has done many small, medium sized and large projects in my home. He has redone my entire basement, 2 bathrooms, expanded closets, and painted many rooms. Essentially, he is a 'jack of all trades'. His work is neat, clean. He works efficiently and can accomplish a lot in a small amt of time. He is honest, hard-working, highly experienced, innovative, practical and pleasant to work with. He is also very competitively priced, regardless of the job. I would highly recommend him to do any project in the home!

I wanted some renovations done and an acquaintance referred me to Brown Development Group. I called the proprietor Vincent who happily agreed to come out and give me an estimate. I explained to him what I would like to have done for my kitchen, living room and dining room and he did a fabulous job! He even offered a few suggestions that I didn’t think of that made it even better. He kept me informed every step of the way; giving daily reports and progress on the tasks at hand. Vincent and his team did a phenomenal job! Vincent really listened and exceeded all of my expectations! I had a deadline and the work was performed ahead of schedule. I am so happy with my new and improved living space!!! I would definitely recommend Brown Development Group if you’re looking for any of the following: Gut-rehab, remodeling, buildouts, painting, drywall, electrical, flooring, etc. just to name a few. You won’t be disappointed!!

Last year we sustained hail damage to our home. Our insurance agent recommended Joel to complete the work. HGR replaced our roof, siding, gutters, and patio door. Everyone who worked on our home was courteous and professional. The materials and craftsmanship were excellent. Joel did a wonderful job overseeing the work, answering all of our questions, and keeping us informed throughout the entire process. We are so thankful to Joel and HGR for making the repairs to our home go so smoothly. We have already recommended Joel to our family and friends.

Overall Good experience. My Cabinet Painting was started on time as promised. This being my first home improvement project, I could have used some more expert advice. But if you know what you need to do they will get it done.

We had to replace 8 leaking and rotting windows in our home. A neighbor friend suggested that we call Audrey at SBA Home Improvements. They sent out a contractor the next day and gave us a quote that was very reasonable and within our budget. What stood out was their professionalism and thorough knowledge of the job. They took the time and explained everything and answered all our questions. We liked the fact that they even gave us a discount on the cost of the windows, so we later signed another contract for a patio door replacement. Great company! I would definitely hire them again and highly recommend any one needing home improvements to call SBA!

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to Gary and Source One! My company wanted to get some work done for a shelter that helps Veterans and had me look for a contractor. I came across Gary on Thumbtack and the entire experience working with him has been beyond excellent! Gary got the job done in less time than expected but the quality of his work was far greater than expected as well. He is personable, professional, fair and honest. The people who work full time at the shelter raved about Gary. They are so grateful for the wonderful work he did on their offices. I couldn't have asked for a better contractor!

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
