I will be eternally grateful to Keith and his awesome partner for coming to our rescue on very short notice. We recently found ourselves in a predicament with a horrible contractor we hired to finish our basement. I called Keith in a panic and asked him when the soonest was that he could come look at our electric in our basement. He came out with his partner in record time, and upon looking at the basement, he determined that the electrical that was installed was a complete mess - the wiring was wrong in every fixture (we have 20 can lights and 16 outlets on the wall!!) and the wiring from the main panel to the subpanel was incorrect, which would have caused our A/C to overload. Keith and his partner immediately figured out what all the problems were and got to work, fixing it all and leaving us with a beautifully lit basement. Not only were they both completely efficient, but they were very thorough and knowledgeable about how to precisely configure the wiring to ensure our safety in our home. As they were close to finishing the job, Keith made a special trip to Home Depot to get more wiring and the correct breaker to fix the mess the other contractor made of our electrical in the main fuse box. I'm sure this would have cost us much more money than what he quoted us at, but Keith didn't charge us more than what he originally estimated. We cannot thank Keith and his partner enough for a job very well done! I can finally have peace of mind in knowing that my house is not going to burn down, and we owe it all to Keith and his partner! I highly recommend Enigma and I will be referring Keith to any friends or family members looking to have work done. His knowledge, experience, and professionalism is top notch, and we couldn't be happier with his performance.

I hire Enigma Electrical to provide estimated for the installation of light fixture in my rental property and Mr. Lewis was diligent and professional in his estimated, even though the job was awarded to another contractor, he provided an excellent technical input for the final selection in this bidding process.

We had initially hired Salvo to fix a botched plumbing job. He was quick to respond to our Thumbtack request, and was also available to provide service soon. During that visit, he mentioned that he also does partial home remodeling - such as tiling, floors, bathrooms, etc. Salvo was very transparent in explaining that he only does the work he feels comfortable doing and has expertise in. We appreciated his honesty as we had recently been suffering through a string of contractors who promised competence, but instead left us with repeated disastrous outcomes. We invited Salvo back to our home to get estimates on 2 incomplete bathroom remodels, that required a lot of re-work due to how our previous contractor approached the project. Salvo gave us a reasonable quote for our project, and assured us that when he was working on our home, he would only be working on our home, so we wouldn't have to go chasing after him. Cut to the end of the bathroom remodel - everything looks fantastic. The tiles are expertly cut and laid, and fixtures are appropriately installed. Any rework that needed to happen, whether it be plumbing or concrete, was done cleanly and efficiently. Additionally, we asked Salvo to install a back splash, kitchen faucet, garbage disposal, and outdoor spigot for the hose. We would highly recommend Salvo for any job, and look forward to working with him in the future, as well. He was reliable, professional, personable, and punctual! He was cooperative in fixing odds and ends as we pointed them out, and he also took initiative to tell us what needed repair or what could be salvaged. He took occasional help from his wife and another family member, and they were all a pleasure to work with.

I rarely even do reviews but am making an exception for Salvo. Stop looking for a contractor to do the job, he's your guy. I hired Salvo to swap out my garbage disposal and he was excellent and honest. Our new garbage disposal was much larger than the original and Salvo showed me where the installation would require him to recut/reroute the pipes underneath the sink. He shared that this would be the best approach in comparison to forcing the new disposal in which would lead to leaking in a matter of days. Salvo did the job and the way he rerouted the pipes left us with double the space underneath the sink which we were ecstatic with! Thank you Salvo for correcting the shoddy work left behind by our builder.

I found ISA to be one of those rare businesses where you actually receive what you pay for. Their jobs were to tile two bath rooms and a family room, hang 10 interior doors, install extensive back splash and replace two bathroom vanities. One rare quality we found with ISA is their punctuality. A customer will find appointments kept and punctuality maintained ... a trait definitely not belonging to a good number of contractors today. We found Salvo and Kemmel (spelling) personal and friendly to be with during the arduous turmoil of home remodeling. Perhaps the best accolade a customer can provide to any business is "yes, I would hire them again"!

Very good experience working with Darrell. I've worked with many contractors and he is definitely one of the best. I had a very challenging job with a custom door. Most contractors offered cookie cutter solutions, but Darrell went the extra mile to make the project a success. I would highly recommend Darrell if you want to get the job done right the first time.

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.

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.

Jason did a great job on several handyman projects for us. He was accommodating and knowledgeable. He didn’t bat an eye when I asked him to hang a square piece of art sideways like a diamond. I wasn’t sure it could be done, but he had it up perfectly in no time. He was also flexible when I asked him to rehang curtain rods that were a little low for what I wanted. He was here about 4 hours and hung a large heavy mirror, an over sized painting, art in diamond shape, smaller mirror, 2 shelves, 5 curtain rods and installed 6 cabinet pulls. Photos below. We would recommend Jason for all your handyman needs as long as he’s not back working fir us 😉

Jason was quick to respond. He kept in touch with me (the only contractor to check in after the quote stage) and knew just who else to bring in on the project to make sure it was done professionally. Will be contacting again when I have other projects or even if I need recommendations of who to talk with. Having a resource you know will show up, return your calls and make sure the work is done is hard to find. Jason will do all those things.

I initially hired Jason for gutter cleaning. There was a mixup in the scheduling and he didn't come when I expected him, but he was very apologetic and offered to do the work at a reduced price, which I accepted. In the process of cleaning the gutters he noticed a number of issues with them, which I subsequently hired him to repair. The work was done professionally, with plenty of documentation. I plan to use Jason for future projects.

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.

There is something special about Andrei. He is nothing like the contractors I was used to working with. From the first time we met during his estimate, he immediately stood out as professional yet very approachable, honest and detail oriented. No contractor has ever come to an estimate wearing a suit, breaking down the big project to individual tasks on the spot, and pricing each task individually as we spoke. And his price was truly reasonable. Andrei and hist partner Andrei had a rather big task on their hands - gut-rehab my master and second bathroom, and tile my foyer. I am a picky person, and I wasn't sure if I could find somebody to go along with my anal nature and constantly changing mind. But Andrei listened to all my needs and worked with me like a friend throughout the whole project. I wanted a modern curb-less linear shower drain for my master bath. Some contractors that came before Andrei have never even heard of that. He instructed my plumber on where to relocate the drain, and the rest was all Andrei. I wanted a double vanity instead of the single vanity and Andrei again worked with my plumber on relocating the toilet so we have space for a double vanity. The Andreis drove the whole project from start to finish, unlike many contractors which will leave you the last 10% for you to figure out. We had a few bumps along the road, such as having to wait on some tiles for a week, but the Andreis were very accommodating to our situation and they worked around our schedule. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I hope you get the picture. No contractor is perfect, but Andrei comes really close to it. Best of luck to you my friend!

We hired Andrei to help us design our Master Bathroom and our boys bathroom. We had a collaborative experience and we are very happy with the results. He also has a partnership with a construction company and was able to give us realistic quotes on the labor before we decided on the job. That was very helpful to have a big picture of what the cost would range for our project. Of note, the tiling work was detailed and top quality work. I would recommend his services and those of the crew who built us 2 beautiful bathrooms.

The current construction work, and it is great construction work, it really is. Depends on the contractor doing the work. It really is amazing the type of work this guy, Fernando, does. I know people, a lot of people actually, and I gotta say this guy has a lot of appeal. I've done a lot of research, I've got the best research, believe me I do, and no one can stand close to this guy. A real class act. 10/10 will construct again.

Fernando and his brother did great work and their prices are very fair! They did a backsplash for my kitchen and it looks amazing. They took the time to cut the tiles proper and paid attention to detail, rather than cutting corners like a lot of contractors would. I plan on using Handsome Finish again for future work. I highly recommend them!

Mike responded to my request for various plumbing issues within minutes on Saturday; he was able to schedule and estimate of my repairs on Sunday; and showed-up at my house on Monday morning with an assistant. They completed the repairs in approximately 3 hours as quoted. I was super impressed. I am not easily impressed by contractors because of several bad experiences. They came in with all the necessary tools and parts for the job. Lastly, I thought the price quoted was fair.

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.

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!

I had Ram install all new crown molding throughout my house, including kitchens and bathrooms. Everything was installed and finished within two days of start - and it looks amazing. Some of the walls in my home are uneven and not perfectly square around the cabinets, but Ram was still able to install the crown molding with a very professional look. One other comment....When installing the crown molding in my bathroom, there was a slight issue with my bathtub faucet and didn't notice the issue until after they completely finished installing the crown molding. I let Raul know there was a slight issue and he came out same day had it fixed in no time. Anyone that has ever dealt with renovations knows there are always little unexpected issues that arise during the renovation process. I think what separates Ram from other contractors is that he is willing to own his work and fix any issues that arise - and fix them immediately. I highly recommend Ram!

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.

Bruce and his crew were great to work with during our basement remodel. We shared our vision and he helped us to make it happen within our budget. He was upfront and honest about the costs that were incurred along the way and gave us lots of options/directions to go at different price points so we could make an informed decision. During the construction process, the crew worked diligently to get the work done. They sent daily updates with photos about what was accomplished each day and were always available to answer questions. Whenever we would call, text, or email, we heard back in a reasonable amount of time with the details we needed. At one point, we shared a concern about something and Bruce made sure that it was remedied to our liking without hesitation. It was so evident that he takes great pride in his work and looks to ensure his customers are 100% satisfied. Since moving to the area we have worked with several local "handymen" and Genesis may have just earned the title of our new "go to guy!" Thank you!!!

Outstanding. Mega Solutions did a huge job for me (18 large thermal windows of custom sizes), and they win the trifecta: they had the most reasonable estimate, they did the job perfectly and they completed it on time. Beyond that, the very pleasant owner, Luke, went out of his way to communicate with me. He was always responsive via email and phone. His people were respectful and conscientious and kept the house clean. As a woman by herself, I especially appreciated not having to deal with the leering workmen one sometimes ends up with. (TWO bad experiences before these guys *even though those other companies came from Angie's list*!). I give Mega Solutions an A+ and highly recommend them to anyone needing window work. Frankly, I didn't know there were still places like this out there. They're the way all construction companies should be.

Right now we are in the middle of 2 projects. The first part, replacing gutters was done quickly and beautifully. Plus the customer service and communication has been so polite and professional. The next project is a new front door and we are looking forward to having that completed as we head into winter 😀

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!

Jeremy helped me with a 2nd floor remodel (2 bedrooms) as well as a complete gut job of my tiny upstairs bathroom and some minor fixes in a downstairs bathroom. Right from the start there were several unforeseen issues that should have knocked Jeremy off his original finish date. The issues consisted of structural problems with both the second floor bathroom and several of the basement joists, decaying water and drain pipes, and fixing some of the issues from my last contractors work. Despite all of the problems that he had faced, Jeremy still managed to finish only 1 day behind schedule. The work itself was absolutely flawless, and Jeremy did not let any of the work he contracted out go unchecked. For example, he called the plumbers back because they were about 1-2 centimeters off center on our shower head and faucet. He clearly takes pride in the work he does, and after pulling 30+ audibles on him about things my wife and I wanted done, he was more than willing to do the work, if it was possible. Jeremy did 90% of the project himself, but the entire crew that he hired was professional, maintenance free, and I have not had one issue since completion. There was not one day that he showed up late, went MIA on me during the 6 week process, and if there were problems that arose he offered every solution he could to get whatever needed done within budget. Jeremy himself is a great guy to work with personally, and I will absolutely be using Heritage down the line for several more projects that we had planned.

Jeremy helped save a garage project of mine that had been abandoned. He and his team did a great job and handled everything from painting to woodwork to electrical. He was an excellent communicator about what needed to be done and even went out of his way to suggest solutions that saved me money. I would definitely recommend Heritage to anyone looking for a general contractor.

All State Renovations is your one stop shop for all your remodel needs. If you have one of Ray's business cards, on the back it says "Turn your home into a masterpiece". Well that's exactly what he did for my bathroom. Ray was one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure to do business with. His crew is exactly the same. They were always on time, cleaned up after the work everyday and even said Good bye every night. That's a trait you cannot find with everyone. Ray would drop in every day to check on his crew and to make sure I was completely satisfied with how the job was going. He is also very knowledgeable and if you are stuck on what look to give your new interior, Ray has a million ideas. He even took care of mistakes by a previous contractor I had the misfortune of working with all at a very fair and reasonable price. I could go on and on. He will be coming back for my kitchen and lighting in my living room. Thanks Ray and All State Renovations.

We know Ray through a contract with a construction company that we hired for a remodel on our bathroom. From the beginning, Ray was in charge and did an excellent job. He had a vision and helped us with ours. His attention to detail and the extra efforts made our dream bathroom a reality. We cannot say enough positive things about him and his work. It is with great pleasure that I recommend him and his crew. In fact, we have recommend him to our neighbors (who have hired him) . Also we can't think of a better complement than recommending him to our children and we have.

I wanted some renovations done and an acquaintance referred me to Brown Development Group. I called the proprietor Vincent who happily agreed to come out and give me an estimate. I explained to him what I would like to have done for my kitchen, living room and dining room and he did a fabulous job! He even offered a few suggestions that I didn’t think of that made it even better. He kept me informed every step of the way; giving daily reports and progress on the tasks at hand. Vincent and his team did a phenomenal job! Vincent really listened and exceeded all of my expectations! I had a deadline and the work was performed ahead of schedule. I am so happy with my new and improved living space!!! I would definitely recommend Brown Development Group if you’re looking for any of the following: Gut-rehab, remodeling, buildouts, painting, drywall, electrical, flooring, etc. just to name a few. You won’t be disappointed!!

Mr. Brown has been working on some projects for me and the quality of his work is great. He put some security doors in and they look good. The plumbing work I needed done was great. He’s professional and takes time to answer all your questions. I still have projects and would definitely recommend him.

I was extremely satisfied with the work that Big Brothers Development did in my basement. They remodeled the kitchen, bathroom, put in new tile floors and installed new hookups for the washer and dryer. All of this was done on time (about 30 days) and at a reasonable cost. Michael Big from Big Brothers came (a little early) on the appointed day to take a look at the project and provide an estimate. He was one of 3 that provided quotes for the project. His quote was by far the most professional and he spent the most time looking around and asking questions and even waited while we chatted with our HVAC contractor to answer some of our questions about the project. His quote was very detailed, reasonable and well thought out. He gave me confidence that he could do the project to our high standards, on time that we wouldn't have issues after the work was completed. He and his team worked diligently each day until the project was completed. He checked in with me at the end of each day to update me on his progress and let me know what to expect the next day or week. I have heard it said many times that is hard to find a good contractor and that you can have any two of the three qualities (reliability, quality, price) but not all three! I believe I hit the jackpot with Michael Big and Big Brothers. They had all three qualities and are excellent contractors. I would use them again for my future projects.

Being a "challenged" decorator, on a budget, I was nervous about remodeling my kitchen by myself. Michael and his crew were the best decision I ever made. He guided me through the entire process. Helping me make selection on counter, tiles, backsplash. He showed up when he said he would, and he and his staff were always professional in the work they did. The end result was even better than I imagined. Will definitely be calling them to do my bathroom and flooring in the future.

Big Brothers are the best contractors out there. I recently purchased a new multifamily home and hired them to remodel 4 separate condos. They did a complete gut job and installed new flooring, drywall, paint, bathrooms, kitchen and lighting and all for an amazing price. I highly them.

Steven has been phenomenal. Completely. There are almost no words to describe the amount of assistance, passion, care and commitment this man possesses. He ensures you understand every single thing from start to finish, and is a phone call away should there be any question at all.
