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.

Everything you could ask for and more! I usually never write reviews, but when it comes to hiring people and it companies to do work I felt important to share. We all know how difficult it is to find a good contractor. Elsayed came out on a Sunday and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Installed 3 toilets, dishwasher, garbage disposal, 2 faucet fixtures. Also corrected numerous plumbing issues in the process. From start to finish he let me know what was going on every step of the way. His recommendations were spot on as he came across other issues throughout the project. I always felt confident everything would get done right and did it ever! Never strayed from the up front and honest pricing. I’ve already rehired Elsayed to do more work in my home as OSA is a full service general contractor. Hire with absolute confidence!!!

Stephen's quality of work and expertise was exquisite. He's goal was to provide us the best granite steps and took extra time to do it right, versus "getting in and out". I would highly recommend he and his company for any masonry work.

Moldguys is an *awesome* small family company and I couldn't recommend them more wholeheartedly - I wish they worked in general home stuff and not just mold remediation so I could hire them for all work at my home and not deal with any other repair companies. They did a big job in my basement and cleared out a ton of heavy stuff before even being able to deal with the mold issue and their price was really fantastic, certainly the best I came across. Their hard work and great price is in addition to their really kind way with customers - I work off-shifts and they made sure not to bother me during my daytime sleep hours and were so gracious when I had to ask them for help with things and to move their truck for other contractors. They even helped the other contractors with moving some heavy stuff because I wasn't able to. This brings me to my next point - I have been working with many different contractors lately on various concurrent projects and can confidently say Moldguys were the easiest and loveliest to work with as well as the most professional - they have typed up work orders with a clear breakdown of the work and costs along with when payments were expected..just really appreciated everything about the way they do business. They worked at my home for nearly a week and endured very hot as well as cold rainy weather and just did great work. Lastly, they saved me a lot of money when they pointed out reasons I didn't need to hire a company for additional work on something.. Great people, great company, awesome customer skills, just genuinely wonderful people doing hard work and doing it WELL. Hire them if you want uour job done right by really nice people.

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.

Dave did an amazing job helping us very quickly with house projects in prep for a sale. He did tiling, drywall, flooring and painting. So great to have his help that made our lives easier! He was prompt, professional and got the job done on time. I'd highly recommend him to others needing help with house projects.

I am incredibly impressed with D.E. Carroll. Matt was responsive and personable throughout the process, and his team did an amazing job restoring the facade of my house. I was particularly impressed by how quickly they knocked out the work: from first message to job complete, it took less than a week. And it looks like a whole new house! Great work all around—would hire again without hesitation.

If I could rate Justin more than 5 stars, I would! I don't normally write reviews often, but Justin and 1800 Water Damage deserve it. Justin was very professional and informative. 1800 Water Damage not only had reasonable prices but it includes everything you're asking for in your original quote. Previous companies I've worked with will try to upsell once they are in my home, and it adds up! Justin was very punctual which is something I respect as many businesses are not. He worked very efficiently while maintaining communication with me whether or not each area was satisfactory to me, and it was! My carpets look brand new and smell so fresh! Justin was also very friendly and pleasant to have in my home. He seems to really enjoy his profession and it is obvious he takes pride in his work. I will most definitely be calling Justin again when my carpets need cleaning, or even for maintenance to keep them new. I will also keep Justin and 1800 Water Damage in mind should I need restoration. Thanks again Justin! You'll be hearing from us soon!

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.

I had a pleasure of hiring Russell for home floor repairing job (engineered hard wood). I would highly recommend Russell for such carpentry work. Based on this fantastic experience, I would consider him for other home repair/installation jobs (gutters, storm door, etc). I had a buckled (peaked) floor due to the seller/installer not leaving enough gaps at the edges to account for expansion of hard wood during summer. I had about 6 estimates, and by far, his pricing was the most reasonable. While most people charged per job, Russell quoted me an hourly rate. Some more reasonable than others. A few were flat out reluctant to do the job, due to its small size (maybe thought it was less profitable) despite the full day needed for its completion. By giving me a ridiculous quote (similar pricing to a new floor installation), they implied they didn't want to work. The job required removing the moldings from the impacted walls, removing all of tiles, then laying them again from the problematic area. He sticks to the quote and to his estimated time. He has a good pace and doesn't linger to buy time. Also, I found him to be very personable. The job was done to the utmost satisfaction. If you want an honest, hard working man to look after your home repair jobs, this would be the guy.

Marcio installed a Marmoleum floating tile floor in our kitchen. Although the project took a bit longer than expected, Marcio came back early in the morning the very next day to finish the job for no extra charge. The floor came out great. Marcio and his team were professional and responsive to our requests. I would recommend them to anyone seeking home improvement help.

My husband and I purchased a new-to-us home this past November and the to-do wish list is a mile long. Our first big-ish project was having stairs built to an already existing deck. Xavier was wonderful to work with, he was very responsive to any questions, was on the job daily, and the stairs far exceeded my expectations. We look forward to working with Xcc Pro-Builders for our future projects.

I have been working with Gilson for over 10 years on a variety of home projects: everything from gutting, designing and installing new bathrooms, building custom built-in bookcases, and updating a kitchen, to installing a new deck. He is everything you would want in a contractor: honest, reliable, very experienced and knowledgeable about both indoor and outdoor projects, meticulous about details, and just a pleasure to work with. I trust him completely, and recommend him highly!

True professionals are as good as gold! I put off remodeling my home for years because I dreaded the hassle of dealing with contractors and designers. When I finally committed to having the work done, I went through at least 8 General Contractors and designers to find the right fit. Each of these was either overly expensive, or had overbearing personalities, or sounded like used car salesmen.... Until I connected with Byron Cuhna and Co. Byron runs a family operated construction company that handles all size jobs. Byron came in and helped my wife and I work through the design of a large addition 26x24 on with a two car garage and bedrooms/bath above it, as well as another 15x15 family room on the opposite side of the house. Byron not only gave us great design ideas, he helped us add features that would be more cost effective and efficient. Byron and his son Eric were on the job from start to finish, and made the experience of living in "construction" much more bearable, and at a price affordable enough that I can still pay my children's college tuition next year. I highly recommend Byron Cuhna construction, I will update this review with final before and after pictures of my house. Carmelo

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.
