My experience thus far has been great with Langford and Sons. We have had one visit. At that time, the grass was cut and edge, along with some weed-eating where needed. We have discussed some additional work regarding flower beds and shrub pruning to take place soon. We were satisfied and anticipate future work. We have agreed to move forward with a contract for commercial residential lawn care service.

After trying to get my house remodeled by 2 different contractors, 1 I fired and the other quit because I fussed at him, God sent me 2 Angels, Cali East and Caleb Ball. They came in and finished my flooring, backsplash and trim work . The work was beautiful and they were so fun to be around. They left no mess each day. They are very honest and guarantee all the work. Will be glad to give a,verbal recommendation if needed. HIRE THEM. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

Working with Bill has been a pleasure. He has been quick to respond and professional. We are working to repair a water damaged home long distance and he has been extremely helpful and has gone out of his way to meet with our insurance adjuster. He also is more than knowledgeable enough to discuss the relevant issues such as acceptable levels of moisture in the home. He has made the process much less stressful than if we were handling things on our own. I am a real-estate investor and finding people who do what they say they are going to do has become increasingly difficult. I am grateful to have found this company and plan on using their services for future projects. Additionally, I would sincerely recommend them to family and friends in need of a contractor.

Mr. Rafael recently laid tile floor down for my foyer. He did an amazing job. All of the tiles are level and he was super fast. He is about to repair my kitchen tile that was laid down incorrectly by a different contractor. I am so excited and cannot wait to see my new kitchen floors. I will definitely hire him for additional projects. He is also very personable and explains things so that I can understand.

I have had a positive experience with Thumbtack. They sent me two business references for replacing my old attic ladder. I liked what I saw on SEC Home Remodeling LLC website. My project has not been done at this review, but is scheduled soon.

Sahene Construction LLC did a roof and flooring job for us back in 2012 and help rebuilt our home in 2016 after a flood. Sahene Construction LLC were the only contractor's that we considered for the rebuild, and was working in our home before the water fully receded. They worked non-stop to allow us to move home in time to celebrate Christmas in a house that was even better than before the flood. They also worked with our insurance adjuster as an advocate on our behalf. We'll always be grateful for everything Sahene Construction LLC did for us during a difficult time.

We had Kaz and his electrician rewire the master bedroom. The work was fast , prompt and professional. Kaz also demoed under the bathroom sink and did the mold remediation. He repaired the cabinet wall just like new. Will call back when I need a contractor.

A complete renovation / remodel of our Methodist church's kitchen. It included electrical, plumbing, wall & base cabinets, butcher block island and wood floor refinishing. This fellow went far beyond our expectations. We now have him working to renovate our sanctuary. I have worked with a number of contractors but none this good. If you want a contactor who is honest, conscientious, and keeps the work area clean then look no further. Rev. Russ Clunan

The guys at L6 are nothing compared to the “other” contractors. They came and did what we had discussed at my house. My bathrooms look great, I get so many compliments from friends. Now I am happy to call this my home. I will be recommending this company to anyone needing renovation, repairs or that may have or get any water damage. Thanks Mike, with L6!!!

No matter what the job all I had to do was tell him then I could forget about because he would take care of it small or large it didn’t matter he would do it and most of the time even better than I had imagined. My home is beautiful!! Thank you does not seem enough for all that you did for me!!!

    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 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 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.

    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.

    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.
