ABSOLUTELY AMAZING WORK!!!!! I hired Jacques to fix a painting job gone horribly wrong. When I first spoke to Jacques my idea was to just put wallpaper up to cover up the awful walls in my bathroom because I thought I was going to have to spend an arm and a leg getting the walls redone. Jacques came to my house to give me a free estimate, and brainstormed with me different ways to fix the walls and trim at a price that would fit my budget. As a person, Jacques is hardworking, courteous, easy going / no pressure, and dedicated to his craft - his work is phenomenal! Before Jacques fixed my bathroom walls and trim, I was crying tears of disgust, and when he was done, they turned into tears of joy! Jacques turned what I imagined my bathroom should look like into a reality. His quotes are EXTREMELY reasonable for the amount and quality of his work - he skim coated the walls, put nice trim along the floor, re-did trim around the door, primed and painted the walls, removed an ancient medicine cabinet, patched holes with drywall, installed a new light, plug, and came up with a great solution for a 1 inch gap between the sink / vanity and wall. I am beyond impressed with Jacques and his craftsmanship. When all the work was done, you couldn't even tell he had been working in that room by how clean it was (it was cleaner then when he started the job). I can guarantee you that when you hire Jacques, you are hiring a true professional! Since he did such a fantastic job with the bathroom, I'm rehiring him to fix the walls in my living room and hallway. He's definitely a contractor you want to hang onto!

Todd was responsive and was the best value for dollar of other quotes. He made time for me under time constrains that others could not meet. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a quality contractor in the area. I sell real estate for a living and will recommend him to other home owners who need his services.

Rob did an amazing job on our front stoop and walkway! Although we were not able to start when we wanted due to an injury, we were pleased with how responsive Rob was. He was able to complete the job in a couple of days and it looks fantastic! Our neighbors all stop by to complement his work. I would definitely use Rob again for any future projects.

I have dealt with many contractors in my lifetime , however I can honestly say it was a pleasure dealing with Dan. I hired Dan to replace a deck on my home prior to putting it in the market for sale. Dan not only did an excellent job on the deck, he helped me make economical solutions to various repairs and remodel that ultimately help sale my home. What was most impressive is that Dan dealt with the constant hassle from the building department in a patient and professional manner. Most importantly the craftsmanship of the deck was so impressive that the inspector said "Your Contractor did right by you and built a deck that will outlast any deck I have seen in the past 2 years." If I was not moving out of state I would hire Dan to do any project in my house because it is not often you come across a true Master Carpenter and that is what you will get when you hire Dan.

Bruce and his team were excellent. He drew very clear designs of what was to be built and the final product was clean and strong. His work product reflects his decades of experience. Most importantly, Bruce was excellent in regards to communication. He was very prompt in replying to emails and taking calls, which is something that is rare with contractors. I will be using Bruce for future work and cannot think of a better indicator of my satisfaction.

After owning our home for over 40 years we were finally ready to remodel the original 1956 master bathroom. We interviewed 4 other contractors before meeting with "For-U-Builders" who seemed to share our vision for transforming our obsolete bathroom into a masterpiece of timeless design combined with quality craftsmanship. Each member of their team, from the owner to the sub-contractors approached the job with professionalism and enthusiasm, along with the in-house coordinator who communicated almost daily with ordering & scheduling details, assuring that the project was well orchestrated from start to finish. We couldn't be happier with the results and feel fortunate to have had this firm complete our dream bathroom on time and at a reasonable (middle of the range) cost. We will surely be using them again for our future projects.

Services Provided; Total kitchen redesign complete with new floorplan layout. Consulting for cabinet options, cabinet and drawer insert options as well as countertop, appliance and flooring suggestions. Service received; Mike allowed us the choice of using any contractor for any construction services. We opted to do our own demo and electrical to save a little money but chose to use his contractor and were very glad we did! He was very easy to work with and did great work. My wife and I were very pleased with the finished project. I think the two things that made this project more than "Pretty & Practical" were, price and Mikes service! From the four estimates we received, Kitchen Options was not the least expensive but it was affordable. Mike's part in this was everything you'd want in a general manager of a project such as this. If he wasn't always available all the time he returned my calls, texts or e-mail right a way. He always answered uestions and provided information clearly, professionally and friendly! It made made our big, stess filled project get completed easier than expected.

From day one Paulino was very responsive to any inquiry I had about the job. He was professional throughout. Due to traffic conditions he was a few minutes behind schedule but he gave me adequate notice of the delay. He was meticulous with the job (interior door installation), completed the job in a timely manner and cleaned up after completion. I highly recommend Paulino Home improvement to anyone who is looking for a door installer!

There is not one single negative thing to be said about John and his work! We feel so blessed to have found him on Thumbtack! Good customer service has always been one of the most important factors my husband and I consider when hiring someone or rating our experience with any company. John exceeded our expectations on that issue. We are located 2000 miles away from our home that we rent out and found we needed to have lots of work done in between tenants. John not only did beautiful work (our sister-in-law kept us updated and sent photos along the way), he stepped up and baled us out of a tough situation when another contractor that we hired to do other work prior to hiring John seemed to be having time-management issues. Since we were faced with a tight deadline with new tenant arriving soon, John jumped in and got those jobs done in 2-3 days where we had already been waiting 6 weeks to have done by the other guy! This was on top of the jobs we originally hired him for. Now faced with more challenges that came up about other issues, John has proven to us that he is the guy that can be called on and trusted for anything! Thank you, John! Thank you, Thumbtack! (If Thumbtack allows me to come back later and update this review, I'll add photos that are on my phone.)

Joe, first of all thank you! My family and I are very thankful we found you. I am sure we will talk again in the near future. Martelle Builders are nothing short of professional, responsible, but most of all AMAZING at what they do. I have built a few houses and I have had my share of terrible contractors but Martelle Builders by far exceeded all expectations. There are contractors that will just go into a job and just do it, and then there is Martelle Builders, who treats his job as these houses were of his own. It is more than just the money for these guys. Oh, and did I mention they framed my new construction mid-winter?? Do NOT hesitate to hire MB... I am very glad I didn't.

In early 2015 Laurene worked with me on a project to remodel my master bathroom and walk-in closets. Once the layout was established maximize the space, I was then presented with lovely options for all the fixtures. Any changes were addressed promptly with new options based on my taste. A date was chosen to start and her contractor and his assistants were prompt, efficient, and communicated very well…as Laurene does. As with all large projects, unexpected delays did occur, with unknowns hidden behind the walls. This was no surprise. Throughout the project all questions were addressed quickly, and with the help of Laurene, so were decisions. Laurene bases her decisions on the client’s taste, but adds a twist to enhance the final result. Her taste on how colors, textures, and furnishings all blend together to create a flow in the room is one of her great traits. The bathroom project turned out fabulously, and actually better than I expected.

We had the pleasure of working with Mark Troiano from CJT Development to build our custom new house. He is everything you would want in your contractor. He made great suggestions and helped keep us stay within our budget. When we met with him to go over out blueprints he came back with ways we could save money and not lose the integrity of our dream home. He did an amazing job sticking to the time table that we discussed previous to starting our build. Mark does an amazing job of explaining the process of everything and stayed in constant contact with us throughout the entire project. He was always available to answer our questions whether it be in person, on the phone, text or email. Mark was always willing to help out where ever it was needed. He is hard working and honest and works with quality subcontractors. Our house came out beautiful and the quality is amazing. I would highly recommend Mark to do any project, and would hire him again in the Here is a link to our home on Houzz http://www.houzz.com/projects/1482269

I would gladly recommend Jon's work! Bel Air remodeled my kitchen and master bath, and the work is gorgeous. I couldn't be happier. Bel Air was also the most reasonably priced contractor I found after searching and interviewing several and taking many quotes. The most important piece to me is that Jon warrantees his work and replaced a faulty light switch for free when I called. That's peace of mind.

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.

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.  

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.  

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
