Working with Terry made our house renovation enjoyable. My wife and I were both project managers in commercial construction and I can confidentially say Terry is one of the best contractors we've ever worked with. Terry does a wonderful job explaining his competitive pricing and makes you aware of potential issues before they arise. He started off doing shoring work and sill replacement at our house and that turned into a much larger scope of work after watching them execute. I look forward to our next project with Terry and team!

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Gianni contacted me immediately after I placed a request for fence contractors in my area. We met the following morning (he was there ahead of time!) he gave me an extremely reasonable quote and worked with my schedule to get it done. The fence is perfect. Now we are moving onto many other projects. I highly recommend Gianni and his team as they have both integrity and professionalism. Five stars!!!!

Finally able to leave a review for this great company! I hired them to repair my roof. I had recently had my roof repaired, so I thought. The contractor ripped me off and left holes in my roof which I didn't find out until our last big rain when it was raining in my house! A friend of mine referred Legacy Restoration to see if they could help me. I was nervous because I had been ripped off already. I contacted Legacy, and their response time was great. They were here within 24 hours of me contacting them. Their quote was so reasonable, I was shocked. They completed the job within a weeks time. They kept me informed through the whole process keeping me at ease. There was no disruption to my household during their work. They did a fantastic job. Even the insurance company rep who came to inspect the work was very impressed with the job Legacy did. I would highly recommend them. They will also be my go to company for any future issues I may have.

I met with Steve for an estimate. While I chose another contractor Steve would have fit the bill just as well, but I had to choose one. That said, Steve was very knowledgeable and fair on his pricing. I would defiantly consider him for any future work I have.

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.

I truly enjoyed working with this family team and we have more projects on the horizon. The first project we completed together was a restoration of four 100-year-old, 15ft windows - a task which many other contractors refused to even quote because it is so specialized. The Barilleau team was knowledgeable, creative, timely, and reasonably priced. I have already recommended them to friends and neighbors.

Master Suite remodel. Overall quality and design were amazing. Completed the job in less than 3 weeks, while other contractors proposed 6-8 weeks. Any issues that came up were immediately addressed; attentive to detail and listened to all of my suggestions and concerns; great choices provided and an excellent eye for design.

I couldn't envision a better contractor. Cesar completed the total rehab of a home I purchased that was in foreclosure. The house was in terrible condition and needed to be gutted to the studs. All new utilities were installed. I've been living in the home for the past 7 months and I still struggle to find issues with the work that was completed. Cesar was able to understand my renovation budget, acknowledge my vision of the completed project, manage my expectations of what could be completed with my budget (let's be honest...we all have expensive tastes until we get to the cash register lol), and was dedicated to providing quality craftsmanship. Cesar was always accessible to reach by phone, answered any question I had, and was willing to provide insight when I was contemplating decisions that I would probably regret after the project was completed. I'd recommend Cesar to anyone I hear in need of a contractor. I've included a few before and after pics to illustrate his work.

Stephen and Dixiana Trosclair 13964 JR Drive Walker,Louisiana 70785 I was introduced to Ed when he was with United Built Homes. My first impression of Ed was exceptional. All throughout the build of my new home Ed was in constant contact with me. Always checking on his contractors and asking if I needed anything on a daily basis. Also with Ed being a God fearing Christian, that was an absolute blessing to me and my wife. My wife and I have been in our new home for more than a year now and even though Ed no longer works for United Built Homes, He still kept in touch with us always asking about our home. When we were looking for a home to build I honestly believe God sent us to United Built because of Ed. Ed will always be in our hearts and in our prayers.

BRIGGS construction provided great service. We made an appt for the contractor to come out and give us an estimate. He was very honest and knowledgeable about what the cause of our water damage could be. He explained what he would need to do to fix it. He completed the job once we agreed on a date and provided some useful tips to help us as new home buyers as well BRIGGs is a name and number I will put in our home repair keepers file.

Installation of a storm door. They came equipped and ready. Attention to detail was used from the start. They definitely didn't rush the job and took their time doing things right. Their installation actually looked better than the previous old install. Pricing on the job was the lowest I was given. I wouldn't hesitate to contact them first on any other jobs I may have. Don't look over these contractors.

My experience was exceptionally because my house is 132 years old and had its historic designation. Mr. Scott took these facts into consideration and used the appropriate replacement materials, exercised care in handling the original portions that would remain and produced the quality of work that blends seamlessly with the original. He was punctual, courteous, and professional at all times. I liked the fact that he kept the work area clean and free of debris while the work was in progress . He also handled unexpected issues professionally and quickly as if they were just part of the job. He has an unusually pleasant manner that makes you wish all workers could be this way.

I was very apprehensive about starting the 600 sq. feet concrete removal work we needed after hearing so many horror stories about contractors, but after meeting with Job, I decided to go for it. The price he charged was extremely competitive (beat our other bids by almost HALF) and he completed the job quickly. I have already recommended him to some of my neighbors who were impressed with the speed and quality of his work. If you need concrete removed, you would be foolish to hire anyone else to do you work.

M&Z Renovations did a fantastic job on my historic New Orleans home. I had several nightmarish experiences with other contractors, so it has been a huge relief and joy to find one who does great, reliable work. Love the way every project has turned out and they have always exceeded my expectations.

    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.  

    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 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.
