Everything went very well from first contact through completion. Tom was very knowledgeable, took his time and explained everything, did not rush us. Tom was very helpful and honest. Tom did a excellent job installing the outside venting for over-the-range microwave oven. We highly recommend Tom for any home installation project.

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!

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.

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.

Ray is a hard working, honest, and dependable contractor. There is nothing he can’t do. Currently remodeling 3 houses for me from top to bottom and he handled every surprise that came up way better than I expected. He is great to work with and you can trust him with your project with your eyes closed. Will hire him every time.

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.

I was very fortunate to have found a trust worthy contractor. Rick and his team did an amazing job with my kitchen transformation. The whole redesign process and working with the way my kitchen was originally laid out was amazing. They created a new space for me and better "flow" of my kitchen than it was before. Always punctual and most importantly kept the communication throughout the whole process. I knew from the first day to the last day what the progress was and what has happening next. I will definitely be using them again for other projects around my home and recommending them to anyone I know.

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!

Chris completely overhauled both our upstairs bathrooms. We live in a home that was built in 1978, so the powder blue toilets had to go. We were able to narrow down our taste for each bathroom and sit down with Chris to talk about design/price. Not only was he quite accomadating with the design, he was excited to take on the project and had his own input along the way. Chris is very educated on construction, what works, what wouldn't and his entire team of guys are stand up people. You can tell his occupation is his vocation, not just a job. Each job is done with personal attention and detail. We have grown to call him our friend and feel lucky to have landed such a great contractor. We highly recommend him and his company for any renovation around the house! Donna Steiner-Naperville, IL

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.
