Tim helped me diagnose a mystery leak in my master bathroom. He was timely, courteous, and dilligent. It took a few weeks but we finally figured it out. I would highly recommend Tim, and I'm definitely calling him the next time I need help around the house.

Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

Andrei and his partner installed a backsplash in our condo kitchen and it turned out fabulous! He was able to fit us in his schedule the day after contacting him. He was on time, and is highly recommended.

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!

Had them empty out belongings from a house going up for sale. They were flexible and polite. I was not there when the work was done, but was told that. Would use them again.

Unfortunately he had to let his helper go early into the job (2nd day) and that made the roofing take 12 days to complete. I had hoped he would knock a little off the price for it taking so long, however that was not to be the case. All in all Jeff did an outstanding job on the roof. He took added precautions so as not to damage any of the flowers my wife has growing around the house and took cleaning up very serious. I have not seen even one piece of material he used left behind in the yard. I believe he did the job as if it were his own home, with pride and attention to detail. I would definitely recommend Jeff to anyone considering getting their roof done.

I followed after weather was warm enough to get into the roof. Brandon showed up on time and fixed the issue and I think he did a good job. He is a nice guy to work with. Planning to hire him for some more handyman work at my house.

I hired Claudio to tile my backsplash in my kitchen. He quoted me a very fair price, showed up on time despite a snow storm and did an excellent job! He was cheerful and pleasant throughout the whole process and cleaned up everything leaving the kitchen the same as when he arrived (except nicer with the new tile)! I plan on using Claudio for other projects in my house and am happy to have found a handyman that not only follows up but shows up and does a great job.

I hired Jeff after a home inspection while selling my home. I needed to fix a few things I didn't even know needed fixing. This included changing the main water valve under the house to working in the attic venting the bathroom fan. I also had some exterior eaves that need replacement. Jeff know how to handle all the jobs. He did a great job addressing everything. He is very knowledgeable when I comes to home construction. I plan on calling Jeff when I move to my new home for any work needed.

The Jates construction team did an amazing job on this project. My wife and I needed to repair our laundry area / utility closet / hallway, which had been destroyed by a roof leak in our condo building (long story). We decided to try thumbtack, not knowing what to expect. Antonio from Jates responded immediately, and scheduled a visit the next day to provide a free estimate/quote. By the end of the day, we received a detailed Quote / job description, with a fair price. Estimated project time would be about 3-5 days. We signed up Jates, and immediately received an email. Jates was on site the very next day, completed the project in 3 days, always showed up on-time, and even gave us advice on paint colors and the doors (went with their paint suggestion - Dolphin Fin, a blueish/grey, by Behr at Home Depot, and love the look). They also helped us install a cat door for the utility room (where we are putting the litterbox)! Antonio provided updates throughout each day, and was very responsive. The entire team was very professional and friendly. Overall we are incredibly happy with the work Jates did. IMO, the most important things from any contractor are 1) transparency, 2) hard work, and 3) easy to contact. The Jates team gets an A+ on all three. We will definitely use them again, for other work in our unit (and also for condo projects) You guys rock!! P.S. I attached a before/after picture below, so people can see just how great they did!! We love the result!

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.
