Shujaur was wonderful and very responsive. We are property managers and have had him do a few projects for us (including snow removal) and each time he sent a picture once the job was completed to let us know it was done and done right.

Elsayed respondes quickly to my project and provided me with a very reasonable estimate. He showed up at 7 on a Sunday morning and worked all day until all the kitchen cabinets and new plumbing fixtures were installed. He even returned to change the sink once the countertop was installed. Very impressed by his punctuality and clear desire to do a high quality job in a timely manner. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to remodel their kitchen!

Steve and his co-worker, Phil, did a terrific job. I could not be more pleased with everything about the service he provided. This includes his competitive pricing, timely performance, attention to detail and problem-solving when adjustments had to be made to accommodate an irregular basement floor and fieldstone foundation wall, and perhaps most of all working in difficult conditions and extreme heat. I cannot say enough about how pleased I was. I look forward to his continued involvement throughout the renovation of our 160-year home.

The project involved the interior painting a condo unit of 700 sqft that contained difficult to paint architectural features. G&P Home Solutions started on the day we met to review the project and finished it three days. The painting crew were very pleasant and accommodated my requests. The workmanship was of a very high quality and the finished product is perfect. I am very happy that I chose G&P solutions and I do not hesitate to recommend them for any home painting project.

Thank you Stella Construction. I had the company remodel my kitchen. New hard wood floors, counter tops, cabinets, tile back splash, window casings, baseboard, and paint. The back splash now absolutely compliments the counter tops and cabinets. Everything came out perfect!

Felipe and his crew were responsible for installing all interior wood trim for our recent home addition and renovation. They were also tasked with various and miscellaneous carpentry work including door and door hardware installation, and fabrication and installation of several custom millwork items (fireplace mantel; powder room sink top, custom shelving). All work was completed carefully, expeditiously and with a smile. Felipe and his team proved to be an invaluable resource to help keep our project on schedule. We could not be more pleased with the service. I would highly recommend FW Home Improvement.

I originally connected with Eduardo Muniz in order to build a yoga studio. I found him an extremely congenial, responsive and knowledgeable person who had all the right resources and skills to do an excellent job. Meeting and planning with him was a pleasure, and he had a lot to offer in the form of ideas and suggestions. I did not, in the end, build the studio, primarily because of reconsideration of my family’s financial outlook and our best way forward. However, I was sufficiently impressed by Eduardo that I am planning to use his services for some home repairs and renovations I’ll be doing. Once those are done I’ll be able to leave a review regarding how the work turned out.

Mark and his partner did a great job with my staircase. I am very happy with the results. Mark is very good at what he does. I appreciated his prompt replies to my texts when I had questions about the project. This was a 2 day project and I left them in my home for the first day while I was at work and I felt completely relaxed with them being here without me. They cleaned my home after they were done. I would highly recommend Mark for all your carpentry needs. Thank you Mark. I'm so happy I chose you to do this job.

We hired Russell to build a new newel post for our stairwell and install a new railing and spindles. We had sawed off the old newel post during a home construction project a year ago and did not have a picture or materials from the prior post. Russell was able to create a beautiful newel post from scratch which looks better than anything we could have bought in store. He was also committed to ensuring that the style of the post, railing, and spindles matched with our house. At our request, Russell returned to adjust something according to our wishes and even made suggestions to make the whole thing look even better. Russell was professional, honest, and came in at a great price. We appreciated his patience and willingness to deliver a product that we loved. We enjoyed working with Russell and love our new stair railing and hope to use him for future house projects!

Although we haven't started our kitchen remodel project yet I'm very happy so far with the experience and I know this project will turn out great. My initial meeting with Brandon was excellent, he showed up on time ( I know never happens) and he was extremely knowledgeable and had some great ideas. We then met with the designer they work with and she is great. They both made great suggestions while keeping our budget in mind, they never pushed expensive options or ideas. We had a kitchen design back in two days! I fee like I'm getting a great value for the money we are spending. They weren't the cheapest but they also we not the most expensive price we received. Will update when the project is done.

My wife and I hired Heraldo to demolish an old covered back porch and replace it with an open deck, as well as a quick remodel of our existing front porch structure. We agreed on a VERY fair price. Heraldo agreed to start on a Friday morning. He arrived on time each of the 5 days that he worked at my house, was neat and clean in his work, meticulous to the smaller details, and responsive to any questions we had along the way. He is an extremely hard worker, working full days on both Saturday and Sunday, and had the whole project done and cleaned up by Tuesday afternoon. Just 5 days to completely do the whole project. Heraldo's work is top quality, and I would highly recommend him. If you are considering hiring him, he is a great choice.

V&C Painting and Construction INC helped install a costume chain linked gate for me and repair my chain linked fence. Joao came with an assistant and they were both a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, responsive, skilled, and was a pleasure to work with. He showed his knowledge of how to custom make a fence right and I appreciated his attention to detail in making sure that the fence was professionally built and also made my house looked great. They cleaned up all of their work and left my yard spotless. I will definitely hire him again for other projects around my house. Thank you!

We loved working with Nivaldo and will use him for future projects in our home. He is always professional, honest and stands by the work he does. We can’t believe how amazing our new bathroom, floors and basement turned out. We were concerned with the fireplace in our kids playroom and he created an adorable custom cover with chalkboard and shelves that they love!

The manpower behind Silva Masonry is quite good. They have done great construction work to renovate the backyard of my house. They’ve pretty good pricing too because of which I didn’t have to shell out extra money beyond my budget. Work was completed within the estimated time which was not too much.

Paint Plus did a terrific job on our home. The preparation was very well done and the actual painting process was done very neatly and looks great! Exactly what we agreed to at a reasonable price. We did make a few changes during the job and communication was easy. Shawn and his son cleaned up everything every night and completed the whole job in a timely manner.

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.
