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.

I was extremely happy with the work AVM construction did in my house! Andrei was very nice and easy to reach. He came ON TIME, unlike the majority of handymen I have worked with. Andrei completed a backsplash for me which looks amazing and I've already gotten quite a few compliments. He was very reasonably priced and I would recommend him to a friend.

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.

McDonald Construction did a beautiful job replacing our sidewalks and repairing an old coal chute on our foundation. I was immediately impressed by McDonald Construction when they responded within an hour to my request for a quote and came over the same day to look at the job and give me an estimate - and they started the job when they said they would. McDonald Construction's prices are extremely reasonable and all of the workers are very professional and courteous. I would definitely recommend this company.

Joe trimmed our big trees thoroughly despite the fact they were a bit difficult to get to. His fee was fair and he was great about communicating with us. Knowing that he can provide other services in addition to the trees will make our choice easy when working through our "to do" list. Glad we found Joe!

I did a wooden deck re-painting. All preparation and paining activities were done with good quality and the price was better than other quotes. Bill started and completed the project on-time as planned and even did some “extras” for me without additional charge (fixed the bench and power washed the wall). I would consider Bill for the future home improvement projects.

I hired Lyndell to install a shower surround kit in my master bathroom and ended up hiring him to do so much more! He was able to repair some pesky woodpecker damage on my chimney chase. He noticed some loose cedar siding and repaired that as well. The chimney looks great and is better than the original construction. He came in under budget and was very thorough with his work. Couldn't be happier. The shower kit and door kit installation went just a smoothly. Lyndell performed a very "clean demolition, made some structural repairs and installed the shower kit with a high level of craftsmanship and care for my home. The shower surround also came in under budget and looks (and works) great! I'm very pleased with the work he performed at my house. Side note: take the time to get to know Lyndell...he is capable of more than you think. His background is amazing and his work ethic is refreshing. I'm planning on hiring Lyndell for future projects at my new home.

Dean and his crew are great. They can handle just about any situation. With Deans many years in the new home construction warranty department, he's seen it all and can take care of your homes issues. His most recent job for me was replacing cedar siding on the south side and replacing a hinged French door with a sliding patio door. Job is beautiful and we are very happy!

Marcelo was super great! He was able to fit my project in last minute and did a wonderful job. He was polite and professional and I will definitely work with again in the future! He was punctual and stayed in constant communication if he ran late. The area fixed doesn't even look like anything happened in the first place. Great job!

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!

Rick and his crew did a great job installing stone behind my bar. They started right away and completed the project in only 3 days. I thought it would have taken at least a week. The quality of work was great, they cleaned up everything and the end results looks amazing. I also had him do some smaller projects around the house like installing ceiling fans, replacing toilets and installing a sliding barn door. A++

Patrick patched 3 areas of stucco on my kitchen ceiling. His work was good, he was through, hung plastic to keep the mess contained and cleaned up when he finished. Job went well and looks good. He also took measurements for additional work we are contemplating, but I have not heard back from him with the estimates. Work was done 3 weeks ago.

We hired Tyler to replace some old sliding closet doors with new bifold doors. None of our openings were standard sizes but Tyler was able to custom order the correct size doors and was even able to give us a deal on a third set of doors. I was nervous about the stain color matching our existing trim but he matched it perfectly! We are very happy with the finished product. Tyler was professional yet personable throughout the entire process. He even followed up with us after about a week to make sure we were satisfied. I highly recommend Precision Remodeling and Home Services!

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.

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.  

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.

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.
