The general contractor had left us in a bind since the cleaning was not included in the price of the renovation work. They could not find someone that could handle construction dust and debris so I had my doughter research listed companies and through a google search we came across ebrr property. The day of the work Luis let us know that the cleaners were on their way. Cleaning: every in of the house and was 110% satisfied as our standard maid would have never been able to handle the job. Hopefully, Downtown XXXX XXXX (the general contractor) will hire ebrr for more jobs in the future since they exceeded their and our expectations

"After some miscommunication on the initially agreed upon time, Tim called me this following morning to apologize and see if they could come by to move the furniture that day. I wasn't available to answer the call and tried to call him back. While the phone was ringing, my doorbell rang. It was Tim and a helper asking if he could move the furniture. I very much appreciated his initiative and willingness to apologize. (It's incredible how many contractors we've had who lack both.) They moved our items upstairs with minimal damage. It wasn't an easy task to get our couch up the stairs and around the turn, but he took great care and breaks when needed, which is exactly what we wanted."

Last Spring, Brandon Contractor LLC completed several projects in my home with excellent quality and customer service! I had recently purchased a foreclosure and was looking for a reliable contractor to complete a few projects. Mr. Vega and I met so that I could share my vision for the projects that I wanted completed - a small window cut in the wall above the kitchen sinking looking into the living room, refinishing the front door, backsplash in the kitchen and painting the upstair hallway and stairway. We met to pick out materials and I was allowed to provide my input as well as receive suggestions from Mr. Vega that would improve the overall job. When the work begun, a possible concern was noted by Mr. Vega and his team with plumbing. It was addressed immediately. All of the projects were completed in a timely manner and I am extremely satisfied with the outcome! The team was professional, courteous and the pricing was great! I often receive complements from visitors to my home and I plan to use the company again in the near future to spruce up my patio. I highly recommend Brandon Contractor LLC for any of your home improvement projects!

We got quotes for a kitchen remodel from several contractors and Langley stood out to us as a company we could trust and who would be particular about the work, so we chose them and have not regretted it. They tore out our old kitchen in a day and started putting our new cabinets in the next. Everything was ordered ahead and checked, so that from the time they started to completion, we only had our kitchen out of service for two weeks! They were particular about the quality of service from the design to the finishing touches and have gone over every detail with us to make sure we were satisfied. We now have a beautiful kitchen that we love!! Thanks Langley!

Tim and his crew did a great job on our basement finishing! Tim was very knowledgeable throughout the process and was very accommodating to with our busy schedules. He and his crew were very trustworthy as most of the time they worked in the house while we were away. Special thanks to Neil and the other gentleman on the team. They were always very friendly and responsive when I needed anything or had a question. My only negative, hence 4 stars, would be that I would have liked to only have had Tim as the sole POC versus us having to deal one on one with the other contractors on the project as it made for a lot of calls and additional tasks to manage. This was our first project so we were not really sure how everything worked. All in all, they did a great job and made our space beautiful! We would definitely use again for any project!

Cesar was a true professional. I wanted to move my washer dryer into a closet (Which involved moving plumbing, installing vents, closing off old plumbing, blowing out another closet, etc). From the plaster work to the hardwood floor patching, you would never have known what it looked like before! Cesar arrived promptly at the same time every day, and cleaned/contained everything at the end of every day. It was great and I never felt like I was living in a construction zone. I have worked in the real estate industry for several years and have always had issues finding quality contractors - I know how important it is to hire the right person! I interviewed about 10 additional people and he stood out not only in price, but in credentials and professionalism. He is now my Go-To contractor. I would highly recomend using him!

Hi, Richard and his Ramon complete this kitchen renovation for me 4 months ago. I've a little tardy in giving them my review but its better late then never. They did a wonderful job on my home renovation, though we had some communication issues in the beginning but you have to understand how these contractors work. It felt like forever but not having a kitchen can feel like forever. The complete my whole kitchen, mud room, first floor powder room, and upstairs bathroom within a month. My and my fiance area bit hands on, so we did choose and pick all the materials that you see in the picture and we bought most of the materials and had it delivered to the house. They are down to earth guys, and sometimes you have to hold them by the neck but they still did a wonderful job. Everyone loves the kitchen now and its going to give my house sell appeal when its that time to upgrade.

I can’t say enough about what a great professional and thorough job Kelvin did! He came out within hours of my request, bought all the material he would need, and fixed the piping under my bathroom sink. It didn’t take long at all and he is the most reasonably priced contractor thus far! Thank you and I will be using you again for several projects!

Matt tiled my bathroom walls and floor. He was very fair in his pricing for his excellent quality of work. He showed up every day for work exactly on time and worked hard to make sure I was happy with his work every step of the way. Of all my years in working with general contractors, Matt's professionalism was my best experience. In terms of his skills with tile, he fixed existing problems with my bathroom in terms of level, tile placement, and severe lippage. When he was done with his work, my bathroom was beautiful! The tile placement gave the bathroom a better sense of space, the floor and walls were level, and there was no lippage. He suggested some aesthetic choices which I went with and the end result was beautiful. Finally, Matt was honest with me in terms of work specialty that he was not comfortable with; that is, I had some aesthetic choices in mind, but he was straightforward with me and said he was unable to do that. I appreciate that honesty, whereas some contractors says they can complete certain special work when, in fact, it's a stretch and does not come out with the quality we hope for. All in all, I would recommend Matt for tile work. He is a strong 5-stars in terms of quality of work, professionalism, and, on a personal level, he is just a very nice man and is easy to talk to.

Renaissance did an amazing job on my den. I originally hired them to mount a tv and ended up having him paint 2 rooms as well. They were on time, very responsive and knowledgeable. I had another contractor install a cable outlet and electrical outlet above my fireplace to make the mounting of my tv easy. However that contractor didn't do an efficient job and when Antonio mounted the tv both outlets were showing. It is very important to me that only the tv be visible after mounting. Antonio assured me that he would not only hide the cable box and cords but would fix the other contractors work as well. I was able to relax and everything was taken care of to my specifications. They went above and beyond to ensure that my needs were met and I was satisfied with the job. I would recommend them as well as use them again for other home improvement projects.

Because of a scheduling quirk in a kitchen remodeling project, we needed some spot demolition while our contractor was out of town. Dante took care of this work in outstanding fashion. 1. His crew did the work efficiently, safely, and carefully. Even though they were removing plaster, they were able to leave the site immaculate after taking the wall down. 2. Dante always responded in incredibly timely fashion, immediately answering all my e-mails, arriving early for the estimate and work appointments, and finishing the job for us on a very tight schedule. 3. FamilyBiz's estimate was very reasonable, almost half my other estimates. I recommend Dante wholeheartedly.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

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.
