Walter showed up on time, got the job done quickly and correctly, and didn't leave a mess behind like some plumbers I've dealt with in the past. Not only would I recommend him for a future job, I've already taken my own advice -- he's also a general contractor, and I'm already using him for an exterior house repair this weekend.

EBRR finished my hardwood floors of my new condo and did quality and timely work! Gave a nice new look altogether. Which I really appreciated. They also worked through some plumbing issues to repair the floors, and the repairs were very well done. Not to mention, the work was very affordable, and the crew was very reliable and timely. I am very happy with my finished floors, thanks EBRR Property Maintenance Services!

We have a 118+ year old house with lots of work to be done all the time. Having lived here for 14 years, we have hired many contractors. After our first experience in working with Ordonez Home Improvement, my husband and I were so extremely pleased with the work quality, value, and professionalism that we have at least two additional projects for which we plan to contract with Ordonez Home Improvement in the very near future. The initial work included tiling, plumbing, painting and door rehanging/repair. In some instances, the engagement included correcting the work of prior contractors. We have received very fair bids for additional work and, pending receipt of materials, we look forward to working with Ordonez Home Improvement again.

Edgar did some extensive electrical work for my basement remodeling project. This included running wiring, installing outlets, light fixtures and upgrading breakers. Everything was done extremely professionally and quickly. I even asked him to come back and do some additional work installing 20' high light fixtures. I would highly recommend Edgar for any electrical work!!!

We discovered our master shower was leaking into our dining room due to an issue with the original shower pan. Matt came out and gave a great estimate to repair the shower pan and replace the tile in our shower. During the entire project, Matt took extra care to ensure the house remained clean during the work. Each day he would ensure protection was placed by our front door, stairs leading up to the second floor, and bedroom to prevent damaging the house. At the end of each day, he would remove the protection so the house could be used as if no renovation was happening. Matt completed the work on time and the new shower pan and tile work looks amazing. He was very professional and had a great attitude throughout the entire process. We are extremely happy with the work Matt completed and are planning on using him to finish renovating the rest of our bathroom. We would highly recommend Matt if you are planning any tile work.

Val came to clean my vents after I had work done in the basement that left drywall dust all over the house. He checked out all the vents and cleaned them all. He even cleaned my furnace and gave me an estimate to check for mold and treat it if any was found. He was thorough and knowledgeable and somehow managed to clean all the vents in the house in a little over two hours. I've noticed a change in the amount of dust I'm seeing around the house and the air smells cleaner! Hire this company! They did a great job for a fair price and I'll be hiring them again. Excellent!

We absolutely loved working with José and his team to tile our basement floor with ceramic wood-looking tile, expose a brick wall, and install new toilet and a wall-mounted sink. He works FAST and within budget. Extra things we needed done were added at very reasonable extra expense ($40-60 to repair an unexpected drywall hole behind a mirror). His team does beautiful work, and José made sure every bit of trash or demo material was taken away. They also went above and beyond to make things look nice. For example, I don't think they charged me extra when they plastered around our baseboards and it looks soooo much better! They also patched a little hole left by a past electrician's job. They took extra good care of our space as if it was their own home. We also like that he respected our desire to further finish our space ourselves ( we are ok with doing our own painting). I can't say enough good things. We will definitely hire José and Brandon Contracting for our next job.

We hired Robert to paint our master bed and bathrooms. They have vaulted ceilings and therefore are more of a challenge that we wanted a professional to handle. Robert had everything done (including a lot of drywall repair) in three days and the results a great. Definitely holding onto his business card for future projects.

Mr Kaufman entered my home and was extremely rude and obnoxious. He was condescending and was angry and refused a handshake from anyone in my home. He came to see the basement and was upset because I, as a consumer, who has the right to a fare bidding, choose to give my introduction of my vision and the description of the work to three contractors simultaneously (to include Mr Kaufman) and he was NOT HAPPY and began to insult me in my own home. Then he stormed out. I'd rather hire a homeless person with no experience than to hire him. I have buying power and this is America.

Leo was friendly and professional, a different client cancelled on him on the same day I made the request, so he ended up doing the work the same day. He ran a dryer exhaust vent through a brick wall to get properly to the outside (the previous owner had left it venting into the basement). The work was done quickly and very well, everything is venting perfectly now. No complaints!

This was our second time using Thumbtack and it was a great experience. We received multiple quotes for drywall work in our kitchen and bedroom to repair damage from a plumbing leak. The Langway brothers provided the best quote and had the experience and reviews to make us comfortable using them. We had guests coming in town so even though it was the holidays they rearranged their schedule and managed to come the very next day. Paul Langway performed the work and exceeded our expectations. In addition to doing a spotless repair job he also fixed some of the underlying issues which were not part of the original quote. He kindly did this free of charge. To have a contractor stick to their original quote and then do work above and beyond without charging more is pretty rare these days. It was also a pleasure to meet Paul and have him in our home as he is a great guy with which to interact. We will definitely use them again.

i had water damage in my basement, so i need mold clean up, replace the wall, new bathtub, new sink and vanity, the some minor handyman things to fix around the house, he even let me add in ceiling fans that was not part of the original work. Quality was/is great cant even notice that there was any damage, and updated the bathtub so it wont break like last one. he always answered my text when i had a question, he was always on time.. when he says he going to be there at 0700 in the morning you better be up cause he going to be on time..lol and the Value or Price was excellent, saving me a few $1000's had i gone through insurance or someone else. He is also my future handyman for anything :) Thank you so much for such a great job,

I had a bedroom door replaced, some painting, and a large section of drywall repaired that was damaged from my daughter's rabbit. All the work was done exactly as asked and I could not tell at all where the damage was on the wall. Excellent work for a reasonable price.

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.  

What is a mold remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of identifying and removing unhealthy levels of mold that have colonized in a home, office, school or other building. Over time, if untreated, mold can destroy a home by breaking down cellulose-based materials (like wood or ceiling tiles) and causing a slow and messy decay. In the shorter term, a mold infestation can cause severe health problems. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mold can trigger respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritations, problems with your nervous system, and aches and pains. Mold inspection and mold remediation are often requested in tandem, although they are two separate services. Nationally, mold inspection costs range from $250 to $300. If mold has been positively identified in your house, either by visual examination or through mold testing, remediation can safely remove it. Properly trained and equipped professionals use specialized equipment (like vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filters) to keep mold spores contained while they remove contaminated materials and treat infested areas with antimicrobial spray. A key component to a successful mold remediation after eliminating the mold is ensuring that the water source that caused the mold infestation is also resolved.

How does mold remediation work?

Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

  • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
  • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
  • Remove affected building surfaces.
  • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
  • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
  • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
  • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
  • Perform clearance testing.

Remove containment materials.

How is a mold test done?

Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

  • Swab testing: $200-$300
    • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
  • Air cell testing: $250-$350
    • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
  • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

How do you get rid of mold?

Mold is a naturally occurring and important part of our ecosystem. That said, excessive mold can actually be hazardous to your health. Mold remediation is usually the best strategy to get rid of unhealthy levels of mold in your home or office. If you’re not comfortable working with mold or the area is larger than 10 square feet (3 feet by 3 feet), it is highly recommended to hire a mold remediation professional to resolve the problem. However, if you’re DIY-savvy, don’t have any health risks, and are not freaked out by mold, the EPA gives homeowners the greenlight to clean mold areas that are less than 10 square feet. Here are some EPA-recommended DIY cleaning tips:

  • Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely.
  • Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
  • Throw away absorbent or porous materials (like ceiling tiles and carpet) if they become moldy.
  • Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.
  • Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Clean up the mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
  • If you are unsure about how to clean an item (art, fine furniture, etc.) consult a reputable specialist affiliated with a professional organization in their field.
