Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a general contractor when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a general contractor, avoid any physical contact, don’t shake hands, keep 6 feet of distance between you and the pro and sanitize all involved surfaces. Also, use digital platforms to communicate and make payments.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

What is the best waterproof flooring for a basement?

There are several great options for waterproof basement flooring. For example, epoxy floors are waterproof but are thicker and sturdier than paint. Make sure the concrete substrate has been prepared for application. 

Tile is a designer’s dream, giving you a moisture-resistant surface that’s infinitely customizable. Rubber sheets or tiles are also good waterproof options, particularly for playrooms, workout areas or laundry rooms. 

Vinyl tiles and planks imitate wood or other materials very convincingly, provide moisture resistance and last a long time. And sheet vinyl is affordable and a great waterproofing solution for those in need of quick fixes.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

Does a general contractor need to enter my home?

Provided the project is located inside your home, completing the job would require a general contractor to enter your home. But if your project is located outdoors, a general contractor will likely not need to enter your home. Discuss your options with general contractors in your area before hiring.

Reviews for Park Ridge basement professionals
Mike E.
We had our basement finished. From the beginning to the end, Dan was professional and always communicated right away. Dan was very flexible with his schedule due to an event that happened to us that prevented him from staying on schedule. His crew is professional and my wife and I got to know his foreman “Ray” who is a constant worker and a professional. Dan had ideas that we used which provided more room for the basement. His estimate was spot on. My wife and I love our basement! And Dan and his crew made our vision a reality. Highly recommend.

Nick was very responsive to my first request for a consultation following a home inspection for a property we were looking to buy. Based on the scope of the issues we found in that inspection, he put us in touch with an architect, Doug, who was able to make it out to the property the next business day to get an estimate on the major issues. Not only did he do a thorough job checking out the known problem, but he found a major issue our home inspector missed! This $150 consultation and estimate probably saved us over $12k on the repairs to the house. After backing out of the first house we found, we employed NeatFix for several renovations on the house we ultimately bought. The team was able to start work the day after we closed, and finished our many projects (new flooring in basement, installing overhead lighting in two rooms, closet demolition, updated electrical work, TV mount, and all the trim and drywall patches and repairs needed to round out those projects) in a week flat! There were some minor hiccups along the way, but these were dealt with promptly and professionally as soon as Nick was made aware of them. For example, a bathroom tile cracked on the other side of the wall from the closet demolition and my carpet got marked, but each was remedied the next day. My only complaint is that after getting an on-site consultation, we didn't get our estimate for a while (over a week) and had to answer so many questions we had specifically had someone out to evaluate, then we never got the timeline for the work in the weeks leading up to it. It was awesome to have it done so quickly, but having never had this type of work done before, I had no idea what to expect.
