Ed Bilo (the owner) wEnt good service for my wife and the cleanup needed done. We had gotten several other prices and ED was the cheapest and most professional. Beware of other contractors on thumbtack that are not a licensed and insured businesses. I inquired about Eds business insurance since it was important for my wife and I to make sure that the job was done right and the first time. I had proof of insurance from Ebrr within hours of the posting...other contractors wouldn't even respond. Will be calling back again for future needs.

On time and let me know when they were on the way. One of my clothing boxes broke (I forgot to tape the bottom of the box) and he used his own contractor bags to help me out.

Great craftsmanship, professional, and easy to communicate with. Worked with my schedule to complete the project according to my timeline. My bed was put together perfectly, and headboard mounted into masonry. I find a common theme amongst contractors in that they don't clean up after themselves, leaving saw dust and waste materials for the home owner to clean. While I did have to do some fine tuning in the cleaning department, Trenton did at least attempt to clean up the area by picking up and disposing of the larger waste pieces. I would definitely hire him again.

Very satisfied with the level of service. The contractor arrived on time and performed the job efficiently. He made a couple of recommendations to help improve my plumbing issues. I took those suggestions and had him install them. Things are working better than before. I will definitely call on 1st Home Pro Services again if I ever need other plumbing work. Great Job!

"After some miscommunication on the initially agreed upon time, Tim called me this following morning to apologize and see if they could come by to move the furniture that day. I wasn't available to answer the call and tried to call him back. While the phone was ringing, my doorbell rang. It was Tim and a helper asking if he could move the furniture. I very much appreciated his initiative and willingness to apologize. (It's incredible how many contractors we've had who lack both.) They moved our items upstairs with minimal damage. It wasn't an easy task to get our couch up the stairs and around the turn, but he took great care and breaks when needed, which is exactly what we wanted."

Rosie Reds did a great job on my home! The two-person crew, who were both pleasant, cleaned the bathroom, which was spotless by the time they were done with it, and the guest bedroom, including the carpet, which is now in much better shape thanks to them. And they it all in less than 2 hours! Furthermore, the correspondence leading up to the day of the job (and even after) was top-notch. Brian was VERY responsive to every message. He was also thorough and thoughtful with each response. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the crew showed up about 10 minutes late and the walls and baseboards weren't wiped down, which I thought would be included with a room cleaning, especially since we had removed all furniture, etc. But I'd definitely hire this company again, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for great customer service and a clean home! Just be sure to outline all of the work that you're expecting to be done in detail so you're all on the same page and Brian can give you the most accurate price.

I typically do not ever write reviews, but this contractor is a special exception to the point that not doing so would be wrong. Words truly cannot express how fortunate I feel that I was able to work with this crew, and how lucky I am that they reached out to me. We needed a renovation project done on the first floor of our rental property, and after meeting with several other contractors, we were starting to feel like finding a reliable contractor who could start working on it before mid to late-August at a reasonable price was a lost cause. Then, we came across Brandon Contractor. Not only did they quote us an extremely reasonable price that was less than half of other quotes we had been given, but they also scheduled us in sooner than anyone else we talked to. To make things even better, they were able to start working on our project almost a week earlier than originally planned due to some postponements on other projects. Once they started working, I was blown away by how hard this crew works. They worked from 8 am to 6 pm, only taking a break to eat lunch, and didn't take any shortcuts in terms of quality and detail (they honestly might have cared about getting it done exactly right more than I did). Also, perhaps most importantly, they never once even mentioned raising the quote despite the project turning out to be much bigger (requiring more materials/man hours) than originally expected. To top it all off, the crew cleaned up after themselves each and every day that they were here, and completed the project faster than anybody else told us they would be able to do it even though they had multiple other projects going on at the same time. There is no doubt in my mind that any time I have a project that needs to be done to make our property look better, Brandon Contractor will be the first contractor I contact. They are by far the best crew I could've found, and I couldn't be happier with the results of their work!

After meeting with four different general contractors, Mr. Marvin Guzman with Baiza Construction, Inc showed his best attitude to take part on a serious complete home improvement we had for our 1956 home. He didn't only provided a quick estimate, But time frame to complete and over all his price. My project was based on a full 2 bathrooms remodeling, plaster walls removal/replacement, insulation, plumbing, electrical, kitchen remodeling and about 2500 square foot of hardwood floor installation. My best recommendation to future hires and families of his great quality work. My contract worth 86k were put on the best hands.

Erick and his team did a kitchen remodeling project for me in Fairfax. They installed recessed lighting, removed the bulkhead moved the air vent that was in the bulkhead, installed the cabinets and backsplash, installed new appliance and a new sink, faucet and installed new breakers for the new appliances. They did everything in a professional, neat and timely manner. He even came on a Sunday to accommodate my tenants schedule. My tenants told me that they have never seen any contractors who left the house clean and tidy at the end of each day. He was a true pleasure to work with and made the project easy even though I live 800 miles away. I highly recommend Ordonez cleaning service. He has earned my trust and I told him that I will count on him to take care of my house. In Virgina.

Marvin and his crew were very professional. They took 3 days to finish the job. Other contractors said 3 to 5 days. They showed up every morning at 8 am , just as they said they would. For me, that was important. They worked as a great team. Everyone knew their job and performed it professionally. When I need other work done, they get the first call, Thanks Marvin.

To say Paul and his friend are amazing is an understatement. Paul solved a toilet clog that had been ongoing for 2 years & we had 2 plumbers before who could not fix it. He was able to remove a towel (accidentally flushed in) that had been stuck deep in the drain for 2 years. Really thankful to the team for fixing a toilet that had been unusable for 2 years. Their charges were very reasonable. Additionally, they also assembled/fixed our porch screen door that had been left partially assembled by a contractor before. The Langway Brothers are amazing. Would recommend them for any job.

Jorge did an awesome job on my staining and painting project. Bonus points for working around the other contractors who were putting in pavers and fixing concrete work on site. I feel I got an excellent price. And finally I was impressed that he kept me updated. He did everything right. Great job. Will call again.

I am an Architect and have worked with Saul on several projects. Throughout my years of practice I have worked with and around many Contractors, my experience with Saul is he is honest, sincere and straight forward with customers. These are admirable qualities in a builder, I say this because a straight forward and sincere builder excepts the risk of a not so forthright Contractor coming behind them and telling a customer what may not be a proper and professional assessment. Saul excepts this risk knowing it's the right thing to do.

I cannot say enough about Alex and his crew. They are, by far, the most professional contractors with whom I have ever worked. Their craftsmanship is unrivaled, and they care deeply about ensuring their customers receive the best product. Their prices are competitive, and their work comes with a one-year guarantee.

My experience with Mike was awesome from my initial email to the minute he completed the work. It is difficult to find a contractor who is honest, knowledgeable, fair, professional, and friendly. Mike is the total package and no job is too big or too small for him. My closet shelving and hanging rods fell to the floor one morning. One company said it fell because it was cheap shelving and quickly provided a $745 solution. Mike saw that it wasn't the shelving but that it was installed incorrectly. He was able to reuse the shelving and recommended a way to increase use of space in the closet. He ended up improving both closets in that room, and 3 other small projects I had been unable to address; and the price was right! Mike is now my "go to" contractor for all projects in my home. I trust him, his knowledge and his work!

Mr. Handyman is a passionate professional that performs above and beyond the bar. He responded immediately with a rough quote and came out to our home to complete an on-site estimate, paying attention to the details of the scope of work requested. He also identified some areas that we were unaware of which showed us he knew what he was doing. We decided to choose Mr. Handyman and we are very happy with our decision. Our project, which consisted of framing and installing drywall, had a tight schedule, yet Mr. Handyman and his crew were committed to completing the job. They were timely arrivers and good with communication as they updated us daily on progress. The completed outcome of the project was satisfactory and professionally done as we asked for. These guys are dedicated workers and we hope to have more projects with them in the future when new funds become available because they DO IT ALL!

Ivan gave us a free quote for a bathroom repair including subfloor rebuild, drywall work, paint, and tile work. It was in line with what insurance estimated so we went with his services. He was punctual and communicative the entire time. The job took a bit longer than expected but it was at no expense or worry to me as Ivan operated pretty seamlessly to finish the job. He left the site clean every day. Do recommend him for general contracting needs.

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.
