The general contractor had left us in a bind since the cleaning was not included in the price of the renovation work. They could not find someone that could handle construction dust and debris so I had my doughter research listed companies and through a google search we came across ebrr property. The day of the work Luis let us know that the cleaners were on their way. Cleaning: every in of the house and was 110% satisfied as our standard maid would have never been able to handle the job. Hopefully, Downtown XXXX XXXX (the general contractor) will hire ebrr for more jobs in the future since they exceeded their and our expectations

Kelvin, did an outstanding job on replacing the interior doors. He was knowledgeable in the construction of doors and over came an obstacle. He had to build the door frames since standard door & jam were to small. He cleaned up behind himself, doors are leveled, and operate great. Thanks for great job, Kelvin!

We had a long list of things to be done before listing our home for sale. Jenrii with Ordonez Home Improvement did an excellent job tackling every project. Jenrii enclosed the landing where we had removed a handicap ramp - this was not an easy repair and required good carpentry skills. He also installed new closet wood bi-fold doors in a basement bedroom. Again, not an easy task as they had to be “fitted” to the closet. His troubleshooting skills were evident here. He replaced two old light switches, four electric outlets, and a bathroom vanity light fixture. These were only a few of the things he did. Jenrii is very professional, polite, thorough, and responsive. He texted us each morning on the days he worked to let us know what time to expect him. He works quickly and does excellent work for extremely reasonable rates. I would not HESITATE to recommend him for small jobs to larger remodeling projects. I was a commercial real estate project manager for 15 yrs, building shopping centers and office buildings - so I can definitively say that Jenrri knows what he is doing and does it very, very well.

I can't recommend the Brandon Contractor team highly enough. I had a small construction project that needed to be done urgently the week between Christmas and New Years. I called and explained my situation, and not only did they come out that night to give me a quote, but the job was completely finished the next day. They gave me a reasonable price and further advice about how to fix the issue. I really appreciated the service that I got from them, especially considering that it was a small job, on short notice, and that it was the week of Christmas. They did great work and I would not hesitate to hire them again.

Paul's work was excellent. He came on-site to provide an estimate then performed the work exactly as he described. The price was very reasonable. He removed the old damaged drywall, installed 2x6 support boards between the frames then hung and painted new drywall and reinstalled the closet shelving with new support brackets. The closet shelves will never fall again! :-) The job site was always thoroughly cleaned before he left for the day. A true professional.

I received an on site estimate the same day I submitted my job to have caulking done around my porch. There seemed to be a water intrusion where the porch met the house, we discussed the job and decided to seal openings around the entire porch and down the steps next to the foundation of the home. The work was able to be scheduled and completed the next day. I was so reassured by the professionalism that was displayed that I requested an estimate for a separate job. I look forward to working with this company in the future.

Jorge came on a Friday to give us an estimate and work started on the following Wednesday and was done on Friday. After a nice power wash and stain our deck looks brand new. The wood boards feels like composite but without the expense. Jorge even replaced some rotted wood trim and rotted wood from underneath our bump out kitchen. After repainting our trim, our house looks great now.

I am so glad we selected MJ Home Services LLC for our home's basement waterproofing project. We listed the project on Thumbtack and had 3 companies respond, MJ Homes Services was one of them. One of the other companies came with a complicated and insulting sales process, that had us spending two hours looking at few brochures and lots of out of business company records of former competitors while recommending options to leave our basement busted up with another project to renovate. MJ Homes Services was different. Apart from being the first to respond and show up for a free inspection, they were very professional and studied our home's problems in detail. They were genuinely interested in solving the problem, once and for all rather than just earning the business. They came out twice for pre project assessment. The owner of the company, John, came and lead the design of the solution to remedy our flooding problems. The solution was comprehensive tackling the problem from all directions e.g. Competitive French Drain Network, Landscape Grading, Awning Construction, Sump Pump flow redirection, Concrete Patio Demolition, Surrounding Neighbor Water Flow Analysis etc. When the project started, just like most constructions, the crew ran into issues with valid grounds for variation. Rather, Brian and the team under John's leadership took the professional route to honor their commitment to working within our budget. In fact, the crew were so professionally that they made innovative design and construction choices should have costed us about 5 thousands dollars more for the project. I could not help but think what would have happened if we went with the other company. They would have been so rigid on the approach and inflexible with scope. I have no doubt in my mind that MJ Homes Services was a God sent answer to our home's basement floodings problem because we had spent thousands over the years on different remedies including a complicated sump pump system with another company to no avail. Finally, when it comes to being responsiveness and customer delight, Melissa of MJ Home Services is the Queen of it. She kept us up to date before, during and at project completion. During the project, it was on a day-to-day basis. She was also able to work with the crew to achieve a scope that's truly above contract. I am very grateful to have MJ Homes Services work on our home project. I will certainly look forward to any opportunity to use their services in future.

I hired E.Y. Construction to replace a window in my master bathroom, install marble tile with a mosaic inlay on all walls, porcelain tile in the floor, a onyx river rock on the custom shower floor, and granite on the shower threshold and half wall. I hired Naser because all his references had nothing but good things to say about him.... Wow they were right. All the workers were very professional, neat, and paid attention to detail. The bathroom window and tile job looks stunning. I am confident it was done above standards and will last well beyond my lifetime.

The service went very well. Everything came out as expected. The only (minor) complaint I could have relates to the longish time it took to complete the job. But, being a 100% outdoors job that didn't affect the household workings in any manner, we were fine with it. We are pleased with the results. The paving and retaining wall system they used (Nicolock) seems to be of very good quality. Rainwater drainage was a big problem with the older walkway, and they took their time to replace it with a much better installation. Their personnel demonstrated experience in dealing with this kind of construction, even giving a few useful suggestions on how to tackle little problems as they surfaced. I would definitely recommend their services to other prospective clients, for sure.

Mike and team did a fantastic job today. I requested for a junk removal service initially. When I spoke to Mike over the phone, I explained to him what other thing I wanted to get done to see if his team could offer me a one stop shop. Mike was able to give me a quote rightaway without hesitant. Mike was extremely well communicated on pricing, arrival time and estimated time for completion. We maintain communication prior to the day of the job and I was impress with how responsive and polite Mike was. I took pictures of the stuff I had and he was really confident that him and his team can do all of it in one trip. My husband and I was skeptic at first but we decided to give Mike and his team a try. We want to respect our contractor’s time as well as our time. We already did all the initial work and move our stuff to the garage and front door, making it easy for just to lift everything into the trunk. Mike didn’t ask us to, but we just renovated our floors and re-painted our walls so we didn’t want the moving of stuff up and down the stairs to stratch any of our new flooring and walls. Upon arrival, the team got to work right-away. The inspection of the junk was about 5 minutes, then they just started breaking the furnitures into smaller, packable pieces for the truck. I didn’t even know they can do that. The team load the junk in our entire garage, the mattresses, and finished the caulking service I asked for initially in an hour and half. Total trip for moving our mattresses to another location and loading the truck full of junk takes about 3 hours. That was pretty impressive. They were all included in the price quoted upfront. Note that I specifically described what I wanted done and distance travel prior to the day of the job. I’ve used many movers and haulers in the past and I wasn’t happy with the results. This was why I always try to look for a better team that I could trust. Thanks to Mike and his team, now we know who to call for our future projects. Will definitely use their service again.

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!

I am so pleased with the job Gerson and his guys did with painting my living room/kitchen, stair wall, and upstairs hallway. He quickly reached out once I posted my project and was out for an estimate as soon as I was available for one. Scheduling and communication with him was quick and efficient. I am very thankful that he thoroughly answered all of my many questions! His price was beyond fair, the work is immaculate, and they cleaned up very well afterwards. They knocked out a very large space in a work day and were very accommodating to me and my family! I will definitely be reaching out to him for more projects!

Julio was fantastic! I bought an old house with a structural beam issue. I was looking for someone to give me a straight answer on what needed to be done. Julio explained every step to me and why he proposing to do the work that way. He gave me hands down the best estimate, in price and detail of work. Julio started work exactly when he told me he would, sent me pictures and texts throughout the process, and finished ahead of schedule. He went above and beyond by adding some hardware that he felt was needed for structural reasons, but stuck to his original price estimate. I plan to call Julio for other construction needs I have. He's a great guy, will be real with you, show up on time, and do great work for a great price!

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.  

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 much does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.

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.
