Jorge and his team of 4 men did an amazing job painting my 4K sq.ft. house from top to bottom in under 6 days. They did a perfect job, were beyond reasonably priced, were super helpful with other little side projects (including fixing my banister without me even having to ask, fixing a minor leak in a sink, etc) They didn't just work quickly but they are absolutely meticulous about their work, and were very conscientious to make sure any tiny oversight was touched up. Jorge even came back about two weeks after to fix areas that other contractors damaged while working, and did so for free. You can tell he, his team, and his awesome wife Myra (who works alongside him planning and communicating) are completely trustworthy too, they have the code to my door and I don't feel the need to change it! Obviously if you are lucky enough to have Jorge and his team help you with a project you will be satisfied. I can't say enough about them and will definitely be calling them in the future.

Jim is great, he came over to check scope of work the same day we called him. Work was started that very same weekend. Very responsible, and on time. Job has been completed and we are very happy. Will call him again for future projects.

I have hired a lot of contractors and Douglas is the best I have ever worked with. The quality of his work, his professionalism and his communication are unsurpassed. We had an outdoor job and the weather made this a challenging spring. Douglas kept in touch so I knew he hadn’t forgotten about us! He came when he said he would and completed the job in an outstanding manner. He protected the areas around his work and did an amazing job of clean up. I recommend him without hesitation for any masonry job.

Actually arrived when he promised (not too common in the contractor world). He communicated regularly before the first job and contacted me immediately about a part of the job he couldn't complete today and needed additional parts for.

John is very accommodation and made everything look good under a budget while meeting and exceeding my expectations! The job wasn't easy, he had to repair mistakes made by previous contractors. New sub floors and flooring, trim, cabinets, drywall and repairs, plumbing of the toilet and sinks and vanities. It's a very old apt and nothing is square or even but he made it look fresh and new!

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.

My remodeling project is still a work in progress. Brian is providing quality workmanship, has left the work area immaculate at the end of the day, and has kept me updated and involved every step of the way with our project by providing me pictures and prices of hardware, tiles, vanities etc. which is extremely helpful to me due to my work schedule and just not finding time to shop around! It is a pleasure working with a contractor who understands our budget, and is enthusiastic in accomplishing an updated, modern, and fresh look for this older bathroom. Thanks Brian!

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.

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.

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.

This was my first time hiring David for a project to install backsplash in my kitchen. To start out, David's communication throughout the entire project was excellent. He was on time each day and thoroughly cleaned up after himself after each day of work. I have been a homeowner for many years. Trying to find a contractor who communicates well, cleans up after themselves, shows up on time and completes project on time is rare in the industry. To top it off, David craftsmanship was excellent. He was detail oriented and would not closeout the project until he thought each detail was perfect; then confirming with me if the job was to my satisfaction. I would definitely recommend David for work. GREAT JOB DAVID!

Vic did an outstanding job enclosing our porch to make it a three season room. His approach was professional and his quote reasonable. The workmanship on the interior and exterior was excellent and the final result exceeded our expectations. We wholeheartedly recommend Victor Pires Construction.

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.)

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.

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.
