There's a reason Steve has so many positive ratings - because he does a great job at a reasonable price! For months I've been trying to find cabinet professionals to fix my cabinet, and they either wouldn't do the job or they would charge $300 for a house call. I was ready to give up when Steve gave me a quote well below what cabinetry professionals were going to charge for what was in my mind a very simple fix. Steve quickly arranged a time to meet a week later, called the night before to confirm, and came within an hour of the time he thought he'd be here. He not only fixed the cabinet, but re-enforced it and strengthened it. I appreciated Steve's attention to detail and crafty solution but also making sure it would last. The price ended up being as quoted which was great, and after all is said and done, I have a fixed cabinet! He also does audio/video and other home repairs, so if there are other things I need, I won't hesitate to call him up again!

I hired Ernie to intall a new dishwasher. Ernie was beyond responsive, and his punctuality and professionalism is something many other plumbers should learn from. He demonstrated to be very knowledgeable and experienced, recommending options without being condescending. You know a plumber has plenty of experience when they don't have to come to your house for a quote just to install a dishwasher. They know well what the job intakes and how long they need to complete it. He gave me a fair quote right from the get-go and when he came to do the job, he worked really fast and efficiently. I must point out, that he was very accommodating as I requested him to come sooner than what we had agreed and he came without hesitation and without asking for more money for the inconvenience. He is so experienced and competent, that I decided to continue hiring him for any future projects around the house.

I received a very reasonable quote for the installation of a garbage disposal and a new kitchen faucet. For once, I was pleasantly surprised. He arrived a few minutes early. That's a first. Although he ran into a few problems, as is expected in old houses, everything was done well and the price remained reasonable! I have a number of projects and have already asked for quotes from Big Eight Mechanical. They do everything. After searching for years for someone I can rely on to do work in my house, I found the one company that can do it all. This is a great find! I had a perfectly terrific experience today. I couldn't be more pleased!

I sent in my request at midnight and the next day in the morning they were here and said they could actually do three out of three projects where I thought they only could do two out of three projects. They were so nice and did great work very polite and very reasonable Replace basement windows fixed lag bolts under the deck and did some roofing work. I'm selling the house and the new buyer wanted all of this done and for years I've been trying to find someone just to do the basement windows Good people. Good job. Good price. And right on time. What more could you ask for?

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.

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

.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.

Sean and Kaitlin showed up on time and quickly got right to work clearing out a foot of snow from my super narrow/annoying driveway and my front and back porch and walks. They were quick, courteous and professional and really did a fantastic job for what I consider a fair price. As I'm still recovering from a lower back injury, I was worried I wouldn't be able to take care of this all myself so I'm super thankful to have had the help. Have a ton of other odds and ends things to do around the house and Brophy Builders will be my first call for that and any other snow removal needs! Thanks guys!

We hired Justin to do a little framing for us and he has since done a multitude of other jobs around our house. He is very skilled and knowledgeable about all facets of construction. If there’s something you need done that’s outside of his expertise he will point you to reliable contractors you can trust. We will continue to utilize his services on this project and in future projects. Justin is very personable, trustworthy and fair on pricing. You won’t regret hiring him and, like us, you will likely be adding him to your contact list so you can reach him whenever you need help! He is sincerely a pure joy to work with. Thank you, Justin!

Working with Sarah has been a very easy process. She power washed my house and it looks great! I've even hired her to do other painting projects that I didn't even know I needed done until she washed the house. Looking great!

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.

Total kitchen remodel. Came out just as I hoped it would. Jason is very professional and courteous. I was surprised by how quickly he demoed and installed new cabinets. (3days). If not for the wait on the granite company, the remodel would have been completed in a week. My favorite part was the all inclusive price..demo, new cabinets, stainless appliances, sink, granite, backsplash, he does it all. Very affordable, and quick. Highly recommend Sousa Houses to Homes for any of your remodeling needs.

I hired Mr Fonseca to roof my elderly mothers roof and if i could add an extra star to the rating i would. I am also a licensed contractor but to old to get on roofs and i have seen too meany fly by night contractors only interested in how fast and how much they can make, and care to little about honesty and quality. He did what he said he was going to do, for the price he said he would do it for and in the time he said he would do it. That's the quality part of his business. The honesty part is when my mom asked him to do some extra projects around the house and he did it after hours with one of his men for a price that was as if it was his own mother. When you consider the helpers wage, and the extra dumpster weight that is all he charged. I believe my mom gave him more than he asked for and he deserved it. Yes i would hire him again and recommend him also.

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.
