I will be eternally grateful to Keith and his awesome partner for coming to our rescue on very short notice. We recently found ourselves in a predicament with a horrible contractor we hired to finish our basement. I called Keith in a panic and asked him when the soonest was that he could come look at our electric in our basement. He came out with his partner in record time, and upon looking at the basement, he determined that the electrical that was installed was a complete mess - the wiring was wrong in every fixture (we have 20 can lights and 16 outlets on the wall!!) and the wiring from the main panel to the subpanel was incorrect, which would have caused our A/C to overload. Keith and his partner immediately figured out what all the problems were and got to work, fixing it all and leaving us with a beautifully lit basement. Not only were they both completely efficient, but they were very thorough and knowledgeable about how to precisely configure the wiring to ensure our safety in our home. As they were close to finishing the job, Keith made a special trip to Home Depot to get more wiring and the correct breaker to fix the mess the other contractor made of our electrical in the main fuse box. I'm sure this would have cost us much more money than what he quoted us at, but Keith didn't charge us more than what he originally estimated. We cannot thank Keith and his partner enough for a job very well done! I can finally have peace of mind in knowing that my house is not going to burn down, and we owe it all to Keith and his partner! I highly recommend Enigma and I will be referring Keith to any friends or family members looking to have work done. His knowledge, experience, and professionalism is top notch, and we couldn't be happier with his performance.

Recently had Mold remediation and water damage looked at, and work done on our house by ProCare Restoration. Our adventure started out with a Sump failure in our basement after the big storms last weekend. ProCare was the ONLY company that was able to have an inspection done the day after, all other companyies told us it would be a couple of days because of the back log from the storm. Tim was the young Team lead, who made it by regardless of time to inspect and quote the work on our house. He was thorough, professional, and straight forward. Was almost spot on in his estimate and when the actual work came out a little higher, he still honored the original estimate. Work commenced almost immediately and was done swiftly. I reviewed the work performed and was thoroughly impressed with the immediate and amazing results. Great crew, honest company, Overall some of the best I have been recommended as well as, the one company that does not disappoint in any way! I would highly encourage and recommend anyone looking to have restoration services performed to not just seriously consider but USE ProCare Restoration. Simply put this company is now a trusted business by my family and will always have our highest recommendations!

We can't say enough good things about Brian! We just list the request yesterday, Brian got the replacement done in 30 minutes today! Not only he is such a hands-on professional who provides excellent and quality work, but also he is a very personable guy. My 8-year old son likes him a lot and told me that he was a nice guy. Indeed he is. We will always look for him when it comes plumbing and electrical house improvements or repairing in our house. Thank you, Brian!

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!

Thank you Martin for your help and advice regarding the mold in my house. Martin was the first pro to contact me and came to treat the issue the next morning. His team was responsive and contacted me in the morning when he said they would. Martin also offered his thoughts and advice on an improvement project for my basement. I’d refer Family First Construction and Restoration to anyone.

Kris helped with repairs and upgrades for everything from dry wall, painting, hardware, installation and more. His work showed exceptional craftsmanship. He was able to make some challenging repairs to correct problems from a prior contractor. After that difficult experience with the other contractor, it was a big relief to have someone so skilled and reliable. He was clear about timing and punctual which was very much appreciated. Besides that, he was just a nice person who seemed to care very much about the quality of his work. I have asked Kris to do additional projects for my home and would highly recommend him.

We had an excellent experience working with Daniel. He is a nice man who is easy to talk to. He took away a lot of stress by offering ready solutions for all our home related concerns. If the repair isn’t in his scope of work, he will be sure to connect you to the right people for the job. He is efficient, completes the assigned work on time and is reasonably priced. I highly recommend his services.

I was very impressed with the quickness and quality of work performed by A Plus Decorating Inc. The owner personally came to my residence to see what I needed done in terms of outdoor home painting and repair and staining of my backyard wooden deck. We discussed what should be done, how long it would take and the cost. A few days after signing the contract, A Plus Decorating's people arrived at my home to begin the numerous large and small painting jobs. The deck had to wait a bit for the threat of rain to pass, but after a few warm days, they were back for the final job of staining the deck. All in all, highly recommended!

Peter responded immediately to my inquiry in search of a company that could repair a broken window in my living room. He came the same day, inspected the problem, took the necessary measurements and kept me fully informed of the expectations from here on. The job isn't completed as of yet since it will take 10 days for the window to ready but I do plan to report back with a more detailed review once everything is done. Otherwise, I've been pleased thus far with his professionalism and honesty........

Otis was very friendly and responsive. He took the time to complete the work to my satisfaction. He was a little late the second day but did notify me of the situation. Cost was very reasonable and I would use him again for small jobs around the house.

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.
