I highly, highly recommend Steve for your concrete needs. I had an issue with my foundation and I didn't know much about it. Steve helped me brainstorm the pros/cons. Provided a WRITTEN quote and invoice in a timely manner (super rare in my experience). Unlike a lot of contractors, was very professional and real. Didn't try to be my best friend on day one and leave a mess until it was convenient for them to come back and clean up. Happy to provide recommendation regarding any structural concrete work.

Lathan was wonderful to work with! He reframed a door for me on the inside and out. The house is 100 years old with detailed molding. He went above and beyond to find matching molding for the door. It came out perfect!! I also bought a porch swing only to find out there was no beam in my porch ceiling to hang it from. Lathan did a fabulous job removing a tongue and groove ceiling to install a beam and replace the ceiling after. He was fantastic about answering questions, scheduling, and overall a great and personable guy who I feel lucky to have met to help with the million and one things needed around the house. Thank you Lathan for the great job! -Kathy

Boston Best Construction was great to work with. They did a complete reno of the first and second floor of our new home - a mid-18th century first period colonial. Eduardo and his team did everything including structural work, a complete remodel of our kitchen and bathrooms, HVAC work, and refinishing our historic wide pine flooring. He and his company were professional, delivered on their timelines, and we love our newly renovated home. Couldn’t be happier.

I was very happy with the work that Ray, Sean and their crew did with my kitchen remodel. Sean helped me come up with the plan for the kitchen and guided me along with way explaining every detail (and every expense) that came up. They were very professional and thorough (and nice to deal with). There were no surprises - except for the changes/additions that I made along the way. I love my kitchen!! I would highly recommend Handy and Some LLC for any remodeling needs.

Russell did a very fine job on our garage. We shifted gears a couple of times during the project but the problems were well taken care of and on time. Very pleased with the service and at a fair price. Down to earth, easy to communicate with, and good quality work- all things we value, and will be calling back in the future for some remodeling needs.

Adonias and his team were great. Their biggest strength is communication. They were always very responsive and clear about the plan on a day to day basis. The cost for the project did not stray from their bid and we were always on the same page as to scope and design. I highly recommend Eagle7 and would use them for future home projects.

Nivaldo was very professional and did a wonderful job on our home painting and garage rehab. We had a just a few issues we are waiting on for him to repair (some underside of shingles missed painting and touchups), otherwise I would have given 5 stars. His pricing was so affordable and the quality of work was top notch.

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.

These guys were awesome. We had a fairly large basement renovation which included a full bath. We had 6-8 general contractors come take a look and it was impossible to even get a quote from most of them. Paulo was a breath of fresh air. He showed up when he said he would be there and he provided a fair estimate. We learned early on that we made the right choice going with M&P. The very first day we left for work with an old, partially finished basement and came home to an open space. They gutted the entire 800 sq ft area in a day and there was hardly a spot of dust on the floor. The next day, we came home from work and the space was entirely framed out...and still spotless. We’re about 4 weeks into the project and maybe a week from completion. They’ve never disappointed us. Paulo is a good communicator and was readily available for regular update meetings. He’s worked with us on any changes we’ve requested and was great about laying out our options. I’ve referred him to all my friends and we’re hiring him for our kitchen renovation later this year. I really can’t say what a breath of fresh air these guys were. They’re true to their word, do great work, and work for a fair price. I highly recommend them!

My husband and I interviewed four different contractors for the remodeling of our kitchen. Gilson was very professional and easy to talk with. Where this was our first time having a big job done we didn't know what to expect. Gilson and his crew made the transition from gutting the kitchen to finishing the kitchen remodel as smooth as possible All of the people that work for him are exceptional and very professional. We can't say enough about their work ethic and professionalism. We highly recommend GF Construction.

Paul and his crew did a really nice job with remodeling our kitchen. Most important, they showed up when they said they would, were sensitive to cost containment, and were very responsive and open to feedback. Paul seems to legitimately care about his business and reputation, and came back to address very small things that we noticed later, which is a rarity given our experiences with the broader base of contractors that we’ve used in the past. We’ll be hiring him again to renovate a bathroom given how easy he has been to work with.

Russ and his team was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to my inquiry (leveling my floors for a floating wood installation) and even adjusted his projects to fit my tight timeframe. He provided tips for other renovations we are doing throughout the house and even allowed up to borrow tools needed to do so. we have worked with several contractors over the last few weeks and Russ by far was the more professional.

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.

I would give LMD Design and Construction more than 5 stars if I could. My husband and I recently purchased a home in Boston Metro and we wanted to have the downstairs painted before we moved in which meant that we needed someone who could meet the specific and short time frame. Lori, the owner of LMD Design and Construction, was one of several contractors who provided estimates. The job itself consisted of painting the kitchen, dining room, and living room walls, painting all the trim (around all the windows, baseboards, and doors), painting all the interior doors, installing crown molding and hanging wallpaper on one wall. Painting the trim was quite the task because their were cracks and gaps, unevenly applied brown stain, and paint from the walls that dripped onto the unprotected baseboards. They were able to expertly paint and repair all of the problematic trim. I hired LMD for several reasons and I am so very happy that I did. Lori was incredibly personable, honest, she gave me a very fair quote, and could meet the timeline without sacrificing quality. I was very impressed by her extensive knowledge, valuable advice, and a trustworthiness that was immediately palpable. She stood out not only from the other contractors, but from contractors in general. During the entire process she was available to answer my questions or give advice and always responded in a timely manner. For me, it is of the utmost importance that I can trust and truly rely on people with whom I do business - especially those who come into my home. Lori and her employees proved very trustworthy, punctual, and apt. I was actually shocked by the high quality and attention to detail - they even went beyond what was listed in the original quote when I changed my mind TWICE about which wallpaper I wanted hung. Adam, who works for Lori and did the painting and wallpaper installation, is an expert painter who can paint a stunning mural by hand or paint letters or phrases with expert precision - he is a true artist. Like Lori, who has a background in interior design, Adam also has an excellent eye for design and helped us to find the perfect, and final, wallpaper- which by the way is GORGEOUS, and he even went out of his way to meet us at a design store where the wallpaper samples were located. We plan to use LMD for several projects of different scales down the road. To be clear, LMD does do small jobs like mine, but they can and have remodeled entire houses, and built homes from foundation to completion. Based on other reviews and references, my own experiences of working with various contractors over the past 15 yrs, and most importantly my experience as a LMD client, I can say without a doubt that this company is one of a VERY FEW who possess the rare qualities of dexterity, expertise and trustworthiness that set them apart from other companies. Metaphorically speaking, you could compare LMD to a restaurant that has, for instance, 100 + menu items that vary from sushi to lasagna; are all reasonably priced, consist only of high quality ingredients, are expertly prepared never fluctuating in consistency, and promptly arrive at your table.

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.
