Stella was hired to do some roof repair and fix my crumbling steps. The crew showed up on time, and got right to work. I immediately felt at ease with their friendly and knowledgeable crew. I was amazed at how great my steps came out! I would recommend Stella Construction & Home Services to anyone!

My partner and I had our small kitchen redone this past summer and I couldn't be more happy with the results. Deciding to undertake a complete renovation is a very daunting task. Shopping for the right crew, streamlining ideas, budgeting, etc... its a huge job even before the physical work begins. I feel fortunate that we decided to go with Eduardo and Boston Best Construction. From the designer to the construction team, I felt he had an amazing crew handling our project. He was prompt with all questions comments and concerns. He listened to our ideas and helped fill in gaps with his experience and expertise. His team was clean and respectful to our home. Each day before they began work they took measures to protect our property and at the end of every day they spent time cleaning up never leaving a mess. Every time I walk into the house and see the kitchen it makes me overwhelmingly happy. Its perfect!! As a chef the kitchen is my sanctuary, and Eduardo created a beautiful place for me to create dishes for my partner, friends, and family. If you want a job done very well by an amazing team look no further.

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!

Our church had some water damage in our kitchen which involved replacing the tile floor. To do that our pot sink, commercial range and dishwasher need to be moved. They were the only contactor that identified that the gas supply to the stove would have to be changed to meet code, that our sink/grease trap unit needed to be re-plumbed also to meet code. Sean is a great communicator always sending me an email at the end of day to recap what was done and what would be done the next day. All construction jobs have some unplanned hiccups! One day both workmen had health issues and were not able to work that day. We had built in extra time since our kitchen is heavily used, so we were OK. Their price was ver fair for us and them. I can recommend Handy and Some without ant reservation.

Joao and Diego stopped by and checked out my project of a fence removal. They gave me an estimate on the spot and said they could be there the next morning. A great price and perfect timing. They showed up at the time they said they would be there and went right to work. The project was completed in a timely manner and everything looked great when they were done. Not only were they very professional, they were gentlemen! I would definitely hire them again. Thank you V & C Painting and Construction!

Great job at a great price. I love the retaining wall and concrete walk Fernando and the team at Disere construction did at my home. I needed a retaining wall to keep water from running into my driveway, even in the dead of winter they came out and built more than just a functioning wall, they created art! We couldn't be happier!

I cannot say enough about the professionalism of GF Construction. I hired GF Construction for a complete remodel of my house. The project was completed on time with few tweaks to the budget for changes along the way. I was kept informed throughout the project. A project like this comes with lots of decisions. Gilson was patient and helped me immensely throughout out this process. I would recommend GF Construction without hesitation.

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

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.  

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.

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.
