Ben worked with us extremely well as another contractor on our remodeling project had numerous setbacks and schedule changes. Ben adjusted to when we needed him. Quality work, and we plan to use him on more things around our house.

David & his team at JDM did a phenomenal job remodeling our bathroom on a budget. They gutted the original builders bathroom where there had been a leak in the shower behind the tile. They installed all new fixtures, including new vanity, new exhaust fan, new toilet, new sink/top, new vanity light, primed and color change the walls and ceiling. The tile work is FaNtAsTiC with custom niche in the shower. Their design suggestions regarding the tile, tile trim, and appointments helped us receive a much nicer bathroom than ANY of the other contractors we spoke to would have done for the budget... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Ed changed my views and gave so many great ideas for this big project. Ed took care of all permits, dealt with the inspectors and was very impressed with his knowledge of decks. Deck turned out better than I thought. I also hired Ed and his team for interior work as well very impressed on everything. Which I can say he's my new contractor!

I had BC remodel my basement... drywall, tape, mud and paint. I am very happy with the job. I had 3 quotes and he was the middle quote. The story goes you get what you pay for. I was very impressed with everything!! Prompt, very clean and excellent work. I will use BC in future for this old house. Thank you again!!

LaRue and Son are excellent contractors. They re-did my bathroom and I couldn’t be more happier with their work and professionalism. I’d highly recommended them and I appreciate all the time they put in to meet our expectations.

Lyndell did an outstanding job on our powder room. He came to our home to give us an estimate. He told what exactly needed to be done. He showed me the area needing repairs. Other companies expanded the area of repair in their estimates. He worked tirelessly on the project. The powder room looks like no work was ever done. Excellent. I highly recommend Lyndell's Home Remodel and Repair.

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!

I cannot say enough good things about these guys. This is my first house and the roof needed replacing immediately. There was water coming in through the ceiling and walls. I was furious at the home inspector ("well the bowl [in the attic] was dry when we saw it..."), scared about being a homeowner and living alone in the city, and didn't know a thing about finding reputable contractors. Enter Jason. He showed up, we hit it off immediately, and he gave it to me straight. Unlike some of the other bidders, he didn't resort to scare tactics or sweet talk and flattery- much appreciated. He answered all my questions, discussed all the pros and cons of various shingles, venting systems, and materials, and was overall amazing. I feel like the price was very fair, and I got a great deal. The crew very carefully moved flower pots and bird feeders out of the way, swept up all debris (including on my neighbor's yard!) and carted away all the old shingles for recycling. Not only is it a major relief to have a solid roof over my head, but I feel 100% confident in the job and will absolutely be calling them again if I need any repairs or remodeling!

STAR CONSTRUCT is the absolute best remodeling company you can find. Ady and his crew are responsible, kind, trustworthy, meticulous, clean/neat, priced very fair for his excellent flawless workmanship. You will not find a better crew or better contractor. They remodel my whole house, 6 bedrooms, kitchen, living room dining room and 2 bathrooms, and every detail was perfect. I am just thrilled with work they did, they made my house like new. I am so glad I found him. Thank you again Ady, I will tell everyone I know about your professionalism and I will use you again.

After a quarter century in our house, we retired and had to get it ready for sale. Dino and his team did an amazing remodeling job making the house look better than new. Dino was very conscience that we're on a fixed income and constantly kept costs in mind. He completed the project in record time. Dino's enthusiasm and artistry were impressive to watch. I highly recommend Dino and All American GC.

Can't say enough about Matt and his work! I had contacted two other contractors before Matt, and was unsuccessful with both. One never showed up and the other was too nonchalant with everything. On my third attempt I found Matt! He came out right away to give me an estimate and even took a trip to Menards with me the same day to design the kitchen. I had all my products already picked out from Menards that I wanted to use for the remodel and he was able to put it all together very nicely. If you want your project done in a timely manner and done correctly Matt is your guy, you won't be disappointed!

Geoff and his team from Benchmark did an outstanding job start to finish. Geoff, who has a degree in Architecture, began the planning of the rebuilt structure with me that included new features to preserve and strengthen it. Among the new features were the addition of concrete wings under the walkway and a drainage system to siphon water away. He did everything from the drafting of the plans for the village, demolition, construction of both cement and brick work to the final touch, brick columns to accent the building with decorative flower urns. You would not believe how wonderful the front of the building looks today. Our Maintance Person who is a licensed carpenter himself could not believe the high quality of the work that was done through out the entire process. Geoff even saved me money by preserving and reinstalling an iron railing. I can't tell you enough about this company and I have been in the landlording business and dealt with many contractors over 45 years.

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.

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.
