I booked Apex to build a new addition on our home and to be honest I've been hesitant to work with new contractors. Their team came in and were professional and attentive to my families needs from beginning to end of our improvements. I was thoroughly impressed with their masterful work and would recommend their services to any and everyone.

All work was completed on time and on budget. Very high quality work. Had absolutely no objection when I added on a few additional smaller projects as well. Had him repaint my kitchen, master bath, guest bath, guest bedroom and first floor power room. All work looks simply amazing! Would definitely hire him again in the future! Sourced through Thumbtack. For being my first experience using Thumbtack, I was definitely satisfied with its role in linking homeowners with contractors.

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.

We hired LoProstis to assist with a water heater issue in our home. Brian, from LoProstis, called us right away for an initial consultation over the phone, and within an hour, he arrived at our house to explain what went wrong and the course of action needed to repair the water heater. We appreciated his honesty and the accuracy of his quote in order to fix the issue, but more importantly, we appreciated the education that came along with it. Not only did Brian install a new water heater in our home; he also help us to select a reputable brand, based on his recommendation and hauled away the old water heater. He did not compromise on his professionalism to charge a higher fee (given the fact it was a weekend and one of the coldest day of the year), nor use that as an opportunity for a surcharge. It's very rear to find an honest contractor and who's willing to do the right thing, and Brian has both. He exceeded our expectations and got up and running within hours. We would definitely hire Brian again. Thank you for your hard work and excellent service, Brian.

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.

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.

Stayed home from work as I expected him. Calls me 30 mins to an hour before expected arrival and says he can’t come until next week. Need this to be done ASAP and now have to start all over with new contractors. Not happy primarily because I stayed home from work to accommodate his arrival.

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 a very positive experience from start to finish. Alumni Builders, Dan and his staff were very pleasant to work with. They listened and were very understanding to our needs. Dan worked very closely with us to explain the whole process, listened to our desires, provided needed feedback and made our first home addition build less stressful. He was involved in all aspects of the project to make sure our desired vision became reality. Alumni Builders has a very great team of professionals. We would use/recommend them for any future projects. Thank you again for all your hard work and making our dream house. Anderson family.

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.

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!

Robert was a pleasure to work with. He was very organized, responsive, and professional. His workers were on time, pleasant, and very patient with both our kids and dog throughout our reno. We added two bathrooms, updated another bath, refinished our flooring, installed new windows throughout, removed an existing wall to open up the floor plan, updated the majority of light fixtures, installed a new front door, painted throughout the home, wallpapered, new inner doors and hardware throughout, removed A LOT of wood paneling, and did tile work in the kitchen. Throughout all of this - Robert and his crew were great. Only minor issues came up - one being a stain color for a door that I didn't like and the other was that the flooring wasn't drying as quickly as to be expected. We would definitely use iRenovate again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
