It was a pleasure working with Jack. He was communicative, very professional, knowledgeable and has vast experience. This was helpful as I had a variety of projects to do.

Tim & his apprentice came & installed two new faucets for me. They did a great job at a fair price, and he was also a pleasure to talk to.. a real nice guy, recommended for any plumbing job. He also has several other subcontractors that can do any job as well. I will definitely call back for a few other larger jobs.

So first of, Andrei Viscribov and his workers and partner are very professional, reliable and fair priced. They fallow on there words and when the job will be done and stick to the price and don't give you any surprise extra expenses. On October 2015 we were in need of a tile specialist installer to install tile in the bathroom and do the back splash in our kitchen over the granite countertops, After renovating our kitchen and bath. We went through different websites and stumbled on Thumbtack, here after many searches we decided to go with Andriy which would be the best decision we have ever made. I called him after couple of emails back and forth. So I told him I would need it done in a week and he said he would need to see the job first to see price and time the job would be Finnished. So after a couple of days we called him back and asked him to the the job. They were on time showing up for the job, they were prepared to start the demo and begin the job, these guys were so clean and neat with removing the dirt and super clean in installing the tile and backsplash it was perfectly aligned. They did an amazing job from the start of the job to the end. This is the second contractors we had worked with that met more of our expectations, the other contractor that did the wood floors in our and gas pipe did a horrible job, the moral to this last sentence that I have learned is, the cabinet Instaler & tile installer were both Russian & Ukrainian who Did an amazing job and met more than what we expected. My advice to anyone who is looking to do bath and kitchen tilling and want a smooth process with no headache and have an amazing outcome Andrei Viscribov and his team are the only right choice for the job. The horrible contractors who did a bad job in our other projects were Mexicans. Now I am Philipino so I am reviewing this as my experience in who we have worked with.

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.

As an architect, I was looking for the right person to help me with my complete re-roofing project in Naperville and after talking to over 8 contractors I had selected Joe of Fox Restoration because I trusted him and knew that he would do it right and fix any concerns that I may have...bottom line I was right, the project was perfect and he did take action when it came to my input and concerns...he not also showed up everyday to supervise his team but at the end of each day, after his crew left the job site, he even went as far as to do extra cleanup work to make sure the property looked orderly and was safe of any debris and nails on the ground. I would without any hesitation recommend Fox Restoration for any existing or new roofing project...[Thanks so much Joe, you were indeed a true professional who is detailed oriented like myself!] All the best, Alex

If we could give six stars we would! Karol showed up on time every day, his work was great, when he faced an unexpected problem he dealt with it in a professional manner. His workers were also very professional, polite and efficient. We have worked with many contractors over the past four years and Karol was far and away the best. We have recommended him to friends, that is the highest compliment.

I needed to have some work done in the house. Raul the general contractor from Ram Renovation was referred to us by one of our neighbors who just completed a kitchen remodel with them. Needing some work done in the house, we decided to give them a call since their kitchen came out really nice! We received previous estimates from 4 other contractors and Raul was the last to meet with us. After meeting with the other contractors we weren't looking to change the layout of the kitchen, until we met with him! Raul opened our eyes and gave us ideas that no one else bothered to show. For the second meeting, he came and showed us a 3D design of the new kitchen layout. We opened a wall and made use of every space possible. Our new kitchen remodel is amazing, it totally changed the look of the house and now everything flows well together. We really enjoyed working with Raul, he has a great team and their work speaks for itself. I love it and I think it makes the house so much more beautiful!

We needed to remodel a bathroom, which had not been touched in 35 years and included a leaky toilet leading to a damaged floor. We sought bids on Home Advisor. Two independent contractors responded in addition to Sears. I met with each to describe the project’s goals, namely 1) to repair the damaged floor, 2) to ensure no further leaks from any pipes or the toilet, and 3) to remodel and update the shower, vanity, floor tile and walls. We were really impressed with Bruce Filipiak of Genesis Construction from the very first meeting. It was clear that he understood the scope of the project and had the experience to do the work, while cautioning that the extent of the exact damage was unknown until they floor could be removed. We met with Bruce at least twice more BEFORE we signed any papers – he was willing to advise us as we delved into the details of designing our new bathroom. After resolving all initial issues we signed the contract with Bruce and looked forward to getting started. We expanded the scope of the project a few times on our own and a couple times on Bruce’s advice. For example, we decided that we also wanted to replace an unrelated exterior door and Bruce accommodated that request. We also decided we wanted a built in the wall shelf in the shower, and again Bruce told us he could do it. Bruce agreed to receive the shipment from Menards at our house. Bruce advised us on the potential additional costs when necessary. He found a couple electrical wiring issues that he fixed as well Once the job was started, Genesis Construction worked clean. The downstairs floor path was taped down to protect it, plastic sheeting was put up to minimize dust spread, and the stairway carpet was covered during the workday. Once the bathroom floor was removed Bruce let us know what damage had to be repaired and preceded to fix it. Everyday we marveled at the progress. They started when they said they would and the project finished in a reasonable time. It looks beautiful! When we sat down to settle up at the end of the job, Bruce produced receipts for everything purchased to accomplish the job. We are very happy with not only the work Genesis Construction performed, but also the way he helped us through the process, and letting us know what decisions and choices we needed to make. We definitely recommend Genesis Construction and Bruce Filipiak.

Hose and Steven came over to install the kitchen Faucet, sink and the garbage disposal. They did a very good job with it. There was an issue where the dishwasher drain was leaking and they came over next day morning to fix the problem. There were some instances where they had to run to Home depot to get some required plumbing parts.

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.

Chris is great carpenter! Not only does he come on time but he picked up the materials so he could start on time and finish on time. Many contractors won't do that. His work was great and he and his colleague cleaned up after and put the garbage into bags to be thrown away. I would hire him in a second! His price was reasonable also. The main thing is you can hire without any worry if you have never used him before. Thanks Thumbtack for introducing me to someone of such great quality work.

This was the easiest contractor I have ever had to work with. Brad demo'd my current deck and converted it to a one level deck. Brad's pricing was right in line with other quotes I received, he always showed up right on time, and the work was done exactly how I had envisioned it. He was even flexible enough to push back the original install date when I requested it at the last minute because I was going out of town. Do not bother trying someone else, this is the guy to hire. I strongly recommend him.

Mr. Joel Christopher responded promptly to my request. He gave me a very good quote on the job. He came to my residence and completed the job in one day. He had to take out three doors and put in new ones. He was very professional during the project. Mr. Christopher also noticed a couple of minor repairs at my residence and completed them without charge. I highly recommend this contractor and I plan on utilizing his services in the near future. He is in the process of giving me a quote on another project. I had a great experience with Joel- he pleased my wife which is not an easy task.

I have worked with John on about 5 different remodels. He is one of the few contractors who comes in at budget and on time. I know well enough that things can go wrong in construction and one of my favorite qualities about dealing with John and NCH Contractors is they don't try and sugar coat anything, so i know exactly what is going on with my and where we are at in the process. We look forward to working with them more in the future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

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.  

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.

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
