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!!!

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.

Simply excellent. Trustworthy, most knowledgeable, and honest! He is the man doing the work and takes professional account for everything he does (not an interim jack rabbit). We first hired Steve to extend our chimney by 10 feet for an upward home addition under way. He perfectly matched the brick and mortar to our antique home original appearance. We then had Steve bring the fire place up to code by removing the old fire brick (brick where the heat is most hot at the fire cabinet), and extend then extend antique brick to the ceiling in the living room - on the first floor. What a beautiful job! Antique wood beam mantle and so on. It looks original to this house!

Cezar and his crew were amazing! I've worked with several contractors (including another tile guy) in the past few months and he was the most pleasant to deal with. We had him re-tile a bathroom floor in a rental we own. It turned out perfect. You could tell he cared about the job they did. In fact, they did such a good job at such a reasonable price, we had them do another bathroom while they were there. (His price was better than some of the others presented on Thumbtack and his reviews were better.) Also, they arrived exactly at the promised time and finished when they said they would. These are both rarities in my experience! I will definitely hire him again if I need any other tile work or handyman work in the future!

I have worked with several contractors in the states of California, New York, and Massachusetts. I will rarely take the time to write a review, but when I come across a company that is exceptional I will take a moment to provide feedback. Steve and his team recently repaired my leaking roof in Cambridge, MA. Every single interaction I had with Steve was superb. I have never received such a thorough and professional proposal - this was very refreshing! Steve and his crew were able to get the work done in a timely manner before the next snowfall. I highly recommend Steve and team! He will be my go-to contractor from now on. /Gunnar (Cambridge, MA)

I had many questions about some work we were considering and David was prompt and professional in his responses. He answered my questions straight forwardly when other contractors came back with excuses. Unfortunately we decided not to go ahead with the work, however, if we change our mind David is at the top of the list.

Lathan has been a pleasure to work with! He is always very prompt when responding to questions and messages and his work is very thorough! He did a variety of work for us around the house, including redoing our bathroom backsplashes, painting and replacing our faucet sets. He also helped to mount our TV's and hung curtains and wall art for us. All of the work that he did was of the utmost quality! I will recommend him to all of my family/friends and will definitely hire him for any other jobs that we may have in the future!

Eduard with BBC just finished our bathroom and I felt like writing a review. A lot of times, people only write reviews for bad service or work that was poorly done, so I thought I'd take the time to recognize some excellent work. I was beyond impressed with BBC. After we had a lot of trouble with another contractor doing other work in our house, we knew we had to find someone different for our bathroom. We had at least 4 different contractors come over to check out the job and give us quotes. BBC actually came in at the best price. On top of that, he really worked with us to get it within our budget and exactly what we wanted it to look like. With 2 kids and limited funds, his flexibility was MUCH appreciated. Not one of the other contractors was willing to work with us in that way. I figured that since he was so great budget-wise and with such a great personality, he'd be difficult once the work got started. I was definitely wrong! He was beyond professional and stayed on top of every subcontractor to make sure they got their work done on schedule--unheard of in the industry! He will answer his cell phone any and every time we called. Eduardo actually finished our bathroom on schedule, he also finished within budget. I would definitely hire him again, and hopefully we have a chance to. I hope you have the same experience that we had....Thanks Eduardo our new bathroom looks great! James Sampaio

Joe and his assistant Frank did a great job on replacing two window casings and sills at my mom's home. They arrived on time as well, which I find isn't always the case with contractors. When it came time to reinstall the storm windows they ran into a technicality but they knew how to troubleshoot the issue in order to make the correction. I think anyone who hires Joe & Frank to do carpentry work will be 100% satisfied!

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!

We have used Handy and Some for several projects around the house including a partial remodel of a bathroom. Sean has always been wonderful about communicating: whether it's returning phone call or emails, setting project expectations ( how long/ reasonable cost expectations). I've had several contractors before show up for a day then disappear for a week ... Without much explanation (I understand things happen or an emergency job pops up. Just communicate). We never had that problem with Handy and Some! His workmanship is great. We will definitely be using him again for future projects.

Adonias was very easy to work with. He is friendly, creative, and flexible. He has a very busy company, so sometimes my projects took longer than expected, but he is good about communicating. Eagle7 remodeled two bathrooms for me (I will upload pictures after I finish cleaning and organizing them). They took out two fiberglass shower/tub units, built a new tub with tile surround and a tiled walk-in shower with glass door. They replaced sinks and countertops, replaced flooring (tile in one, vinyl plank in the other), repaired some plumbing, replaced fan/light combos, and built out walls where needed. In addition, Adonias and his crew helped with a few extra requests as they came up, without complaint. We were updating most of our house this month, so there were many contractors in and out, a dog, kids, and general chaos. The crew took it all in stride, they were patient and worked around our schedule. Prices were very reasonable, and they worked with me to think through what could be salvaged/reused to minimize costs. Adonias also sourced materials as needed, not overbuying or upcharging. Highly recommend Eagle7.

My initial contact with Northeast Construction was great, they sent a very professional response and sent out some one (Ian?) the next day to make the repairs to walls and touch it up. Brandon also came out to check on the job and also provided a estimate on some bathroom work we would like to do. After speaking with him we could tell he has extensive experience and knows what he is talking about. We had no idea we couldn't install Sheetrock of any type in a shower behind tile, we had numerous contractors say that was perfectly fine and the norm, after researching its is not the norm. We look forward to working with them on our bathroom job and future projects.

I hired G&B for a concrete slab project in my old garage. I received quotes from multiple contractors, but went with Bruno (company owner) because he not only had a very reasonable quote but also seemed very knowledgeable in the subject matter. Bruno's guys worked diligently to complete the project and took the time to clean up after themselves at the end of each day. I would highly recommend Bruno and his team for this type of work.

I had to get an apt. unit ready within 24-48 hours with a few small projects like hanging a towel bar, installing molding near the back door, hanging a coat rack, installing a small electric baseboard, and a radiator cover. These required some quick sanding and painting of the trim and patching the hole I made in the wall trying to hang a towel bar. Well, these 2 guys whipped through these projects in half a day. What a relief! I was stuck with no contractor wanting to do these many small jobs and they did it. Timely, neatly and professionally. I will call upon you again! Thanks for saving my butt!

XCC did a perfect job installing my hardwood floors in two large rooms. There were lots of complications with rooms being out of square, un-level surface around the fireplace due to mortar, and border patterns with different wood, and insets. All of it came out perfectly and with very little wood waste (way less than other contractors would have done). Xavier and his crew also did a great job replacing my damaged sub-floors throughout the entire house - a task that no other contractors were willing to take on. Xavier and his crew always worked hard and are very pleasant to be around. They have wide knowledge and skill sets and are willing and able to do anything you might need. No lazy-bones or burn-outs in this crew!

Professional contractors, very conscientious of the fact that we were living in the house during construction and kept the work site clean and protected the rest of the house from dust and debris. Quality work with attention paid to detail.

My project had changes along the way, but they only made the results even better. I had a vision of what I wanted and he and his team made it a reality. The quality of the work is not only solid but I can rest easy knowing I have a room i can be proud of and enjoy for many years to come. The people he works with for electrical, masonry and landscaping work were all professional and thorough as well. Kudos to all. What a difference!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
