Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Baton Rouge finishing professionals
Deanna J.
Meet with Caleb about 3 weeks ago for a walk through and estimate for my remodel project. I was impressed that he reviewed the architect drawings that I sent him beforehand. He was prepared, had good ideas, and understood my style preferences and vision for the remodel. Unfortunately, he may have been too busy to take on my project because I still haven’t received my quote. I had a phone conversation with him 4 days ago where he said that my quote was nearly finished and he would email it to me by noon of the next day. I’m very disappointed because the experience while just working on the bid compared to the other companies was unmatched. This company had very good reviews and does work, and they were my top choice. The other contractors have all reached out to me several times inquiring about my decision. I have to move forward and start my project. ***Update*** Caleb got back to me promptly and apologized for the delay. His reasoning was satisfactory. He gave me the information that I needed to move forward. I appreciate his response and professionalism in working out this issue.
