I booked the project with OSA just one week before I moved in my new condo. There are plenty of jobs needed to be done, like install all appliances, replace old vanity, replace all old valves, replace new toilet, install new lights, put floor tile and wall tile in my bathroom, and so on. Thankfully, OSA finished all projects before the day I moved in with high work quality, I really appreciate it. Also, they are very trustful, I gave my home key to them so they can come any time to do the work. I would definitely recommend OSA to all my friends who needs to do electricity, plumb job for their house or condo.

Marc did a great job helping us with our move. He disassembled our furniture and reassembled it at our new house. He also hung a large picture on our wall, helped out as a second set of hands, patched some small holes in our previous apartment and took down some window shades. I'd recommend Marc to others!

Paul was really fantastic. He listened to exactly what we wanted in our bathroom, and found the faucets that both were beautiful and fit our budget! We were so pleased we hired him right away again to replace some electrical outlets and a light in our laundry room. I almost wish there were more things we need done around the house!

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.

Steven, the owner, could not have been more helpful and professional, and his workers were fast, considerate and very competent. This company went above and beyond for me, and I hope to hire them again for further work on the house when I'm ready to take it on.

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.

Eduardo and his team did an amazing job on our dormer addition/bathroom renovation. Its difficult renovating and building in an occupied home and he and his crew were nothing but gentlemanly, respectful and kind. They kept the house and work space as clean as possible and were very respectful of our private space. The project fell directly within the schedule allotted in our contract and true to his word, there were zero changes orders even as we adjusted elements along the way. Eduardo himself is a very easy person to work with. He is always available and will respond to any concern or need any time of the day or night. If you’ve ever done any sort of renovation, I don’t think there’s anything more highly to compliment than responsiveness and Eduardo scores a 10 in that category. The end result is the bathroom we dreamed off, inside and out. The tile work is amazing and we are equally impressed with the exterior finishing and detailed time spent matching the new to old on our 1890’s home. We would not hesitate to contact Boston Best Construction for future projects, knowing the time and attention we would receive. Other details of our renovation including pictures can be found at www.birdsofberwick.com Thank you, Eduardo!

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

Russell did a great job working through my list of to-do items while prepping to sell my home. He rehung a pesky bifold closet door that had been giving me trouble for years; it slides smoothly now. He was easy to work with and trustworthy - I was able to give him access to the house when I was at work. The job was done well and completed on time. I highly recommend him.

My husband and I purchased a new-to-us home this past November and the to-do wish list is a mile long. Our first big-ish project was having stairs built to an already existing deck. Xavier was wonderful to work with, he was very responsive to any questions, was on the job daily, and the stairs far exceeded my expectations. We look forward to working with Xcc Pro-Builders for our future projects.

I am VERY HAPPY I hired jjrr to rebuild/extend my deck. I had just moved a little over a year ago, and what looked like a "decent" deck concept, was actually not very functional. The prior owners attempted to connect the side deck with the back deck using just boards pieced together to make one large wrap around deck. I really just wanted that part rebuilt since the wood was fairly new looking (it still had sticker price tags) and the side and back decks seemed ok. I received quite a few quotes, and builders telling me they could not use any of the existing wood and/or they wanted to knock down my entire deck and start over since it would not "match"...I was feeling discouraged because I knew some of the wood, if not all could be reused/repurposed. Then, thankfully, jjrr said they could not only reuse the wood, but they understood exactly what I was asking which allowed me to save money on supplies. They came out after we had a snow storm to look at the project, and were able to start the following week. They worked all day in the cold wind and even worked past sundown using a spot light. I thought I wouldn't be able to get this project done until late spring and here it is the first week of March and the project is complete. Impressed is an understatement. I plan on hiring these guys again to re-do my front steps in the near future. Thank you!!!!

I hired Alek to update some trim work and moulding in my house. Alek was very professional, timely, and very reasonable on price. His service, response time, and reasonable pricing made it an easy decision to hire him to complete the job. Alek was and remained dedicated during the whole process to complete the job and ensure high quality work. It was very evident Alek was very experienced and knowledgeable. He provided some feedback and suggestions during the process as well. I would highly recommend his services to others. I will certainly utilize him again in the very near future.

Gilson and his team were a pleasure to work with on the renovation of one bathroom and an addition of a new bathroom in my house. Gilson met with me every day of the project and kept me updated on the work. He and his team do high quality work and seem like they can handle any unexpected challenge! I couldn't be happier with the results and am now looking around my house for other projects that I could get help with from GF Construction. I feel very lucky to have found GF Construction and highly recommend them!!

Professional contractors, very conscientious of the fact that we were living in the house during construction and kept the work site clean and protected the rest of the house from dust and debris. Quality work with attention paid to detail.

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.
