The whole team at Jaragua was excellent. We had a very tight schedule to do the interior painting job and the team finished sooner than expected. Martinson was available at all times, and worked to make sure that we were happy with the services. We dropped in a couple of times while they were working and the site was always clean and orderly with all our floors and furniture draped appropriately. They also went ahead and fixed some molding that was coming detached on their own as well as painted window sills, the fireplace mantel, etc., all outside of the contract. An added bonus was the professional cleaning they did post the job. Not often do I find contractors who significantly exceed expectations like Juragua Home Improvement did.

Jeff built a closet around our water softener and radon mitigation system. He was great through the whole process. He was easy to communicate with (by phone or text), guided us on the different products to choose from, and was very fairly priced. He was efficient, clean and his work was exceptional. The subcontractors that he hired out were all top notch. It was clear from the beginning that Jeff wanted us to be happy with every step of the process. We will definitely hire him again in the future.

Eduardo is very knowledgeable, detail oriented, and trustworthy. He will make sure the project gets done right. We had an extensive remodel project and interviewed a number of contractors before deciding on Boston Best Construction. Their team did an amazing job, not just with the basics, but even doing a full custom floor-to-ceiling bookshelf build, a custom recessed projection screen, etc. Would highly recommend.

I found myself in a difficult situation and needed a plan, guidance and direction with renovating my multi-family home to house myself and extended family. Top Quality Remodeling delivered! We've been living with the renovations that were completed 4 years ago and still, to this day, I find myself admiring my home, feeling very comfortable, and enjoying how my small but extremely functional living space suits me and my family. I couldn't be happier. The design was changed dramatically according to my wish list and even more important, Vill kept me within my budget. It's very easy to get carried away but he was the solid ground throughout the process. The job, expenses, subcontractors, materials, workmanship and attitudes were all kept in line and monitored carefully by Top Quality. I felt supported and listened to throughout the entire process. Oh, and the pesky wooden countertop that revealed a defect months later, was replaced immediately and without any issue. Excellent service from beginning to end, standing by their work after the job was long completed and all with calm, respectful, genuine concern for the customer. Very satisfied with Top Quality Remodeling and I would recommend them to everyone!

It was a pleasure working with Rich. He tackled a large job with a lot of moving parts with talent, enthusiasm, and professionalism. From framing to finished carpentry, Rich possesses a wide skill set and great expertise, and also managed a number of subcontractors and vendors, making our project all the more streamlined. Would absolutely hire again!

Paulo was the perfect man for our basement renovation project. We liked him from the moment we first met him when he came to our house to give his estimate. Paulo came across very knowledgeable - but not boisterous -, friendly and professional. He gave us a quote that was not the lowest and not the highest, but explained us in detail where and why his quote was different from other bids. It was obvious that he was going to be our choice of contractor. Despite wanting to hit the floor running we ran in to a lot of permitting issues with the city of Boston. Paulo stood by us for all the time it took (+6 months) to get all the permits and helped wherever he could. Once the works started things went fast. Paulo's team was punctual, kept everything clean and was amenable to discussing and planning last minute changes to the original plans. If there was a cost change he would always first inform and discuss with us. He was also instrumental in solving some issues that came up while the project was moving along and he personally made sure that his subcontractors (mason, electrician and plumber, respectively) did their jobs according to the plans. At some occasions this even meant having them redo some things. In a couple of months we went from an empty basement to a fully and perfectly finished one-bedroom apartment. In a nutshell, Paulo (M&P home renovations) is and contractor that takes pride in his work. He will handle your project with professionalism and eye for detail and will do it for the right price. We highly recommend him and his team.

Joey was fantastic to work with. He was able to get my porch done in the same week I put out the request. I also appreciated his transparent quote. He provided me with both an estimate for labor and supplies, unlike most contractors who will just give give you a single all-in quote.

    The work of Royal Contracting is excellent. The attention to detail has taken what we felt was a hopelessly ice damaged house and turned it into an exciting "like new" living quarters. In addition to the attention to detail re: construction, he (Dermot McElligott) is super conscientious about getting in and getting out with minimal inconvenience to the home owner. You should have no qualms about hiring Royal Contracting for any construction you are considering. Additionally, his subcontractors were excellent workers and he makes certain that they provide quality and timely service. JohnBlumenstiel, Sharon, MA.

    It was great to have Roger Martin update my kitchen, master bath, and fireplace. Roger and his subcontractors brought all three project in on time, within a very reasonable budget, and with careful attention to every detail. Roger is creative and has a sharp eye - he contributed some of the most successful elements of the design. Two examples: he suggested installing a copper-toned steel backplate behind the stainless range that not only works well but also visually ties together the granite countertop and cabinets. He also recommended the vertical columns of glass tiles that line the shower, adding elegance and pop. Roger was terrific to work with: punctual, tireless, and happy to collaborate. His easygoing manner, flexibility, and long experience greatly reduced the stress typical of a renovation and helped a lot as we encountered the usual unforeseeable issues - in this case, shortcuts and inferior materials in some of the original workmanship. He is also scrupulously honest and fair, and often went the extra mile to get things right even when it wasn't in the original budget. By the end, I felt I had a friend at work, with nothing but my best interests at heart. And the results speak for themselves! Highly recommended...

    We worked with Mike on two projects a few years apart. The first was a renovation of our finished basement. We had water damage due to severe winter storm. Mike installed a subfloor and then laminate on top to protect the floor from any further water issues should they arise. He also redid the ceiling and encased 2 poles with columns and built a beautiful bookcase between the new columns. A few years later, we worked with Mike on a renovation on our 2nd floor. Mike added a room above our garage (in which we put a walk in closet). He also renovated our master bath and added another bathroom as well as reconfigured space throughout the second floor. We have been very pleased with the quality of work done on both projects. We found Mike to always be responsive—he called back promptly to discuss any questions we had. Mike started the work when he said he would and kept the projects going to the best of his ability, even when materials did not arrive on time (not his fault) and was present when we needed him. Mike always made very good suggestions—particularly in ways to cut costs. This we appreciated very much! Mike was good to work with, helpful, responsive and the quality of the work was very good! We were also pleased with the subcontractors that worked with Mike, who were helpful and responsive as well. Liz

    Mr Fix It was the contractor I decided to use to remodel my kitchen & bathroom. Mark was extremely helpful with the design and layout of my kitchen and bathroom. We discussed a price, and unless I changed something he did not change me a penny more than the agreed price. He was very helpful in every aspect of the remodel. Him and his subcontractors were very honest. The plumber, Electrian, tile person, and painters were very professional. They did everything I asked for and more. Every night the job left clean and organized. I can’t say enough nice things about Mark and his crews. They did a fantastic job.

    We chose Ken with Goodwin Renovations to finish our basement because of his reputation and his competitive bid which included details of everything we'd asked for in the design. We have to say we are thrilled with the results. He stayed on budget, was there when we expected him, kept the workspace clean and was willing to work with us if we decided to add other last minute changes to the space. We trusted him and his crew to be in the house unsupervised knowing everything would be fine. He used reputable subcontractors, was there to oversee them and did excellent finish work himself. We highly recommend Ken and Goodwin Renovations!

    Our house was a 1955 ranch-style house with 3 bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, and living/dining room that we moved into in 1995. We had been looking to add a second bathroom and had originally worked with an architect from NH to do a modest front and rear bump out to give us more room to fit in a second bathroom. This architect had to withdraw from the job and recommended David Kinsella of TBC. David initially made some modest changes to the plan that made sense. After some further discussion, in which my wife and I raised the possibility of a larger scale project to modernize the style of the house, David developed a plan that essentially rebuilt the house except for our previously remodeled kitchen and original foundation. This new plan converted our house into modern design with a more open floor plan, completely new roof line, loft space, re-finished basement (and the second bathroom). David was able to fit this into an only slightly expanded footprint in order to comply with town regulations. Throughout the process, David kept our budget in mind and would typically present different price options for us to choose from to allow us to come up with a reasonable comprise between price with style. In addition TBC worked with the town to make sure our design stayed within our zoning and conservation restrictions. After deciding to go ahead with the project, we interviewed several contractors and decided that TBC brought us the best value for our money and would also allow David to oversee the project as needed. We started the project in June 2011 and completed the project in May 2012. The project did take several months longer than expected, but did stay on budget. The major problem that occurred that delayed the project was that in the summer of 2011, the original subcontracted framers were being sent to other jobs by their boss even though TBC was told they would be coming to our job. Hence, instead of working full time on our job, they were working less than half time. Eventually TBC had to fire them and find a new contractor to step in. At the time we felt that TBC should have replaced them sooner, but perhaps this was difficult due to contractual obligations. (We also found this first group of framers were slobs who did not have much regard for the fact that we were still living in the house.) By the end of summer 2011, the house was not completely framed and roofed and number of rain storms (including hurricane Irene) slowed down progress further. In mid-October we were still living in the part of the house and we agreed at this point that we would move out to allow for a more efficient work flow. From this point construction generally proceeded ahead, except for a few delays do to weather and scheduling conflicts that arose for other subcontractors, no doubt due to the significant delay caused by the no-show framers. In the end the house is beautiful and works for us better than we could have imagined. While the house has not expanded much in terms of square feet, the open floor plan and high ceiling/roof line combined with increased natural lighting gives a much more expansive feeling inside. From the curb, the house has modern angular green metal roof with cedar siding and one has to look hard to find any resemblance to the original house. At the completion of of the project, TBC was very responsive to completing punch-list items and other minor issues that arose. While my wife and I certainly had stressful times during the renovation (and certainly did a lot of second guessing our decision to renovate rather than move), we always felt that David had a personal interest in getting the job done correctly and making sure that we were happy in the end. In that regard, David was very accessible by email or phone before, during, and after the work. In summary, David Kinsella provided the creativity to design a renovation plan that was truly transforming for our house and TBC was then able to see the plan through to successful completion.

      I first met Wanderson 15 years ago through my paint supplier. I was a painter then and went on to become a Facilities Director at a facility in Boston. Wanderson has done many jobs with me and for me over the years and he's come in under budget; he's beaten every deadline; and he's come in ahead of every punch list no matter what time of day or how many miles he and his crews have had to go. He's worked long hours, off shift, weekends and holidays to make sure my needs were met exceeding my expectations every time. He is so good at taking care of me it sort of feels like I'm taking advantage of him! Wanderson has not only been my go to contractor (he does much more than just painting) he has become a literal member of my family. He and his family have been to my home (a home that HE remodeled top to bottom, inside and out!) and my family has been to his family home as well. I've never met a better painter, general contractor or friend in my 30+ years in the maintenance business. If you don't hire Wanderson you're losing out on quality service, a professional approach and you'll be missing out on a person who takes his job and his reputation seriously and to heart. You won't find another contractor that has your best interests at heart than Wanderson. The Sampson-Ostrowski Family of Millbury MA

      We waited nearly a year for a different contractor who had been referred to us for this job. After repeated assurances he'd be starting soon we finally gave up and started a new search. We received bids from several contractors, then went with Kip Schultz / Modern Habitat, and now we are so glad things worked out the way they did. We were desperate to get the job done in a ridiculously short amount of time since we had expected to be done months earlier with the original contractor and had already invited a bunch of people for Thanksgiving. Kip started the job very shortly after we signed on, promised to have the space operational for the holiday and completely delivered on quality, workmanship and price. He was in constant contact with us either in person, via email or by phone/text. We were immediately informed of surprises/snags along the way and were given plenty of options for things such as carpentry, insulation and electrical including surround sound. Kip offered creative solutions to a couple of challenges we faced such as "hiding" the circuit breaker box in the wall while keeping it fully accessible and providing under-stair storage. Carpentry work for shelving and rebuilding the staircase was carefully planned and executed, and we are so pleased with the finished custom look. Along the way we added a couple of features and each time Kip was quick to provide a quote, determine if additional permits were required, line up subcontractors as needed and ensure that we were fully onboard with the work. In the end we were able to use the room fully on Thanksgiving, and the guys came back the following week to finish up little details. As far as professionalism and reliability are concerned, the team showed up when they said they would every time without exception; they left the work area spotless at the end of each day; they took care when working in areas where we had all our stuff stashed during construction and they were very sweet to and tolerant of our exuberant dogs. A couple before/after photos included.

      Rich was very friendly, communicative, easy to work with. We had an excess of landscaping from previous owners and needed to convert it to plain lawn. Rich's crew came several days later than estimated, but still reasonably soon. He sent a stump grinder to remove 2 large stumps, then a bobcat came to dig everything up and haul away. Following that, he put in a few inches of loam, then his crew spread seed and lightly raked it in. Several thousand sq ft of lawn was done in about 3-4 hours. All done at a very reasonable price compared with other bids I entertained. And despite my grave doubts, some very hardy perennials did not grow back in large numbers after the bobcat scraped their tops off. I was quite skeptical that simply taking the top off perennials would kill them. Of course, repeated lawn mowing finished off whatever attempted to grow back. Here are some areas of improvement: 1. I believe the proper procedure after raking in the grass seed is to go over it with a roller, so the soil is somewhat compacted. Rich's crew did not do that and the next rainstorm washed quite a bit of the topsoil and seeds away. In fact, the loam was so soft any adult footstep on it left a deep imprint. 2. The loam was FULL of crabgrass seeds. First the regular lawn seeds sprouted, then the crabgrass took over. Next year I'll have to do aggressive crabgrass prevention. 3. It would have been nice to receive a followup phone call or even better, on-site inspection from Rich. That might have earned him additional business.

      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 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.  

      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 I find out if a contractor is licensed?

      It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

      When should you hire a contractor?

      A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

      You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
