Justin installed a new roof on my house. He and his crew stripped two existing layers of shingles, installed a new asphalt shingle roof, installed a new ridge vent and soffit vents. The roof looks great and no more leaks! Justin was very professional and knowledgeable. He answered any questions I had. I would recommend Justin to anybody looking for roofing or exterior renovations!

ER construction is the best contractor that I have ever dealt w. We own a home in CT that we rent out - had some rain damage. I reached out to over 8 contractors and nobody would return my call. Those who did gave me outrages quotes. We live in TX and ER construction was reasonable and worked with me! He worked through all the issues we had and he was able to handle them all! He repaired the roof, he replaced and repaired walls! He did an amazing job. I have some upgrades that we are planning on doing to the home and ER construction will be the only contractor I will work with! I highly recommend him and will share photos

As a frequent Thumbtack user, I've had a lot of contractors work on my house including other painters. Cleynira Construction and the owner Cody are by far the best we've ever used. They painted the outside of our 1950 colonial and it looks fantastic!! Cody also used his construction skills to remedy some tricky wood rot in some decorative detailing areas near that I thought would be very difficult to fix. If you want superior quality work at a very competitive price, I highly recommend these guys. I'm extremely happy with their work and I will rehire them at every opportunity.

Bryan came out to patch up a good sized hole in my ceiling. When he came out, I popped another ceiling repair on him in my kitchen and he was very accommodating and did both repairs on the same day. He is a gentleman to work with, he communicated with me throughout the process, and left the work areas clean when he left.

.RMPaolino Construction was contracted to remodel my unfinished basement and install baseboard heat throughout my house. Mr. Paolino and his team did an outstanding job planning and accomplishing this difficult job. The work was scheduled so that it caused me very little inconvenience and all phases of the job were completed on schedule. All of the work and construction materials were of professional grade, and the overall price tag was more than reasonable. I intend to hire Mr. Paolino to do other work on my property. Because my house is 114 years old, many adjustments and accommodations had to be made in order to accomplish everything I wanted. Nevertheless, Mr. Paolino worked around all of the obstacles and got everything done that I requested. And it looks great. I highly recommend his services. The overall project included the items listed below. 1. Cleared the basement of all junk and debris. 2. Removed the old boiler from the basement and 12 radiators and pipes throughout the house. 3. Removed all of the old steam piping, old excess electrical wires and unused gas lines running through the basement. 4. Removed all artificial walls, ceilings and floors throughout the basement. 5. Installed a brand new modern boiler and enclosed it with walls with sliding doors for access. 6. Installed baseboard heaters throughout the three-story house. 7. Replaced numerous copper water pipes with fiberglass pipes and insulated the copper piping that was not replaced. 8. Replaced seven basement windows with new windows. 9. Restored the worn brick walls of the basement 10. Framed the entire basement and installed insulation. 11. Installed and painted dry wall throughout the basement. 12. The electrical circuit box was replaced and electrical and cable ready outlets were installed all around the walls. The electrical circuit breaker, gas meter and water meter were enclosed in a small room with an access door. 13. A utility area was created on a raised platform where a washer, dryer, and sink were installed. 14. The basement floor was covered with an industrial strength carpet. 15. A drop ceiling with large panels with embedded florescent lights was installed.

I really feel like I hit the jackpot when I went on Thumbtack and without knowing anything about the drywall contractors on the site, I randomly picked Joseph Drywall. I don't think there is a more reliable and professional team with such great work ethic and abilities. I am beyond pleased with the work hey did to restore my home after experiencing significant water damage. My home looks brand new and I could not be more happier! Thank you Joseph Drywall!

JP came to look at one project for us and ended up taking care of two! We had a few different contractors come through, but JP was the most professional and had the best vision for completing what we were trying to accomplish. Everything went perfectly according to plan and we couldn't be happier with the finished result. We discussed costs up front and everything came in on budget. Very responsive to any questions or concerns that came up and had perfect suggestions for when we didn't know which direction to go in. Very happy with everything and won't hesitate to call for any future projects!

Working with Keith & David was very much a relief to me and my worries. I heard of them in the past but found them through here. Keith came and met me, gave me a price for my roof that was leaking, the price was very fair and explained what I was getting for it. I loved that everyday they worked Keith was here with them. Very professional and curtious to us and our neighbors. After the roof was done he told me that every nail we could find would result in a credit for 5$ each lol. Me and husband looked all day the next day to try and lower our balance, we found NONE. He is soon to start our next project being a addition for a garage attached with a master bedroom and bath above it. Can't wait to begin in the spring. I still can't believe that there's contractors out there like Keith & David that we can have faith in. Those catch a contractor shows and the bad things we always hear about don't apply to these guys. I hope to help them however I can with this review. I'll be glad to be of service to those still undecided. Thank you guys so much. Best part is the day we agreed to hire them, they immediately tarped the roof were it was leaking to prevent anymore damage before they would begin. I almost cried over that. It meant so much to us, being that we are elder.

Mike was GREAT! He was incredibly responsive from our first plan for him to visit my home to see my basement refinishing project. I really liked that he was flexible with thinking through and pricing out options. His pricing was transparent and very reasonable. Most importantly he arrived on time, completed work according to the original timeline and did a really nice job creating an inviting space in my formerly unfinished basement. I will look to use him again for other contracting projects.

Bob “the builder” as my family and I refer to him is my go-to contractor for any work we need done. Bob built our entire 3000 sq ft house 14 years ago and we have had him back several times since for new projects. He is a quality builder, honest, reliable and reasonably priced. When we wanted an extra 2 car garage, we called Bob and he constructed an exterior 2 car garage for us, which turned out beautiful. He worked with us on the size, style and layout and made sure it complimented our main house structure. Years later, when wind storms caused a tree to fall through my garage, I called Bob again to make the repair. He did everything from fixing the soffit, siding and gutters to reshingling the roof. As always, he was professional, responsive and understanding as I worked through the cumbersome insurance company process. Recently, I hired Bob again to build a large elevated composite deck. His workmanship is sound and of high quality, his prices are reasonable and I highly recommend him to others. Bob has been building for a long time and he knows his stuff. He and his crew show up promptly every day (even when it’s 98 degrees out!) and I appreciate that they work hard and make consistent progress until the job is done. He communicates with me regularly to keep me informed on the project. I continue to be happy with Bob’s work and will have him back again when we have another project for him. Thank you Bob for doing great work whenever we need it.

Keith and crew have been terrific to work with. We have been working together more than 12 years and 8 significant projects including: rebuilding the deck with a roof extension, mud room addition, rebuild of LR fireplace, installation of French doors, wainscoting/beadboarding w/chair rail in living and family room, installation of gas fireplace and bookcases in family room, complete renovation of the bedroom wing including 2 baths and a laundry, a workout room, and a gourmet kitchen renovation. In addition/or during he has replaced all the doors and windows in the house. Keith was the third contractor I have tried in the 18 years I have owned the home. The other two each had one contract and that was it. I was looking for someone I could trust and give me good value, excellent quality and innovative ideas. The first two didn't perform and then I found that someone in Keith on the first job. I haven't used anyone else since.

This was one of the best Home Remodeling experiences we have ever had. We worked with Ely Jimenez of Del Cid Design and Construction. Ely does the best workmanship we have ever seen. He is wonderfully communicative and professional. He provided us with photographs of every single detail that he worked with. He was very flexible, patient, and creative. He transformed our old-fashioned bathroom into a beautiful, modern bathroom. He somehow fit a large, working washer and dryer into a closet. He is an excellent general contractor who works well with multiple sub-contractors. We 100% recommend Del Cid Design and Construction for any home remodeling task, no matter how big or small.

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.

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.

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.
