We were very satisfied with Benito's snowplowing at our home. We have an 800, long drive and he was contracted to plow only when I couldn't do it with our own equipment. This winter we had only one large snowfall and Benito came out, cleared our driveway and helped set up driveway edge markers. We recommend him to others and will have him help us again next winter.

Great Service, owner Tom listened to what I wanted worked within my budget and had an affordable solution for my landscaping design. Prompt service, job completed the day after I hired them, would recommend them to anyone looking for professional company, respectful employees and most importantly affordable landscaping needs. Big or small jobs, they are equipped to handle both with ease. Left work site clean, something that you do not always get with contractors! Hire them again in a heartbeat!

We needed work done on our house that we are trying to sell; Mike was extremely professional and prompt in providing a detailed estimate and recommendation, and then in getting the job done. Because we moved quite far from our house, he made working with him extra easy by communicating via text and email when needed. I wish all contractors were like Mike!

John was able to do a quick turn around job to help me get our house ready for a graduation party. He painted our garage and window trims in our house as well as repair and paint our, weather damaged, front door. He was a real pleasure to work with!

Hector and his crew replaced the front half of my double drive which had been badly cracked and had sunken in. I had five contractors bid the job. Hector's knowledge and quality of materials was up there with the highest price contractors but he was able to beat their bids slightly. What really set him over the top that no one else did was that he offered to fill a large depression in the lawn next to the driveway as well for no extra charge. Maybe it's a little thing, but it shows his commitment to excellence. The driveway looks great.

Shaun helped me out in a pinch, I needed someone asap and he squeezed me in. He even fixed a major electrical subpanel issue that another contractor wired incorrectly, and stayed until he got it all done. And at a reasonable cost! He knows how to do most everything, does good work, is intelligent, honest, professional and personable. I will continue to hire Shaun and am glad I found him on here.

Scott and his partner did a remodeling job for us. They did the demolition, then did the drywall, painted and added a tub surround and new sink vanity. They installed a new light fixture, too. Then, they put in a new ceiling in our kitchen using drywall, painting, and added a new light fixture. We would hire them again! They did a great job at a reasonable price. My olny suggestion is that they should change the name of their company. They do construction. My sister was concerned because the name says Scotty Mobile Repair. They are more of a construction company and I am sure that they can fix a mobile phone, but we were very pleased with the work they did on an old 1922 home.

Louie asked us to leave a review. I'm delighted to do so. We met Louie before he was Sentry Construction. Skeptical, we had him paint the laundry room. He did such an outstanding job we had him paint our whole house room by room. Four years later and I have nothing bad to say. He cleaned up everything after himself on a daily basis. Honestly he left my home cleaner than I expected. We anticipated dust or something to become a problem but Louie covered everything in plastic and vacuumed more than his fair share of mess. I never had work done by anyone who has their own cordless vacuum, forever a lasting impression!! Louie is a very meticulous in everything he did. The quality of the work was beyond my expectations.

Wouldn't trust anyone else to do renovations to our home! Zack has done so much for us, from moving a set of double doors to the other side of our kitchen, re-siding our house, building a set of bunk beds, and building our new deck! He is the best!

I've hired Top Jimmy Construction to handle many projects over the years. Mike has personally handled 2 of my rental units, my house and even my mother's home. There have been a wide array of projects that he has handled... Two full kitchen remodels (cabinets counters, and floors), tile work in utility rooms and a Florida room. Interior molding/trim/door work. External entryway replacement, plus various electrical and plumbing projects. Not only has he done excellent work, he is dependable! I, have dealt with numerous contractors over the years, I go back to Top Jimmy Construction almost on the communication alone. The reasonable rates really make repeat business a no-brainer!

I had a nightmare of a roofing project... think 1st story flat roof with 2nd story deck over it with maybe 4 inches of clearance... Many contractors came to bid it...and said "no thanks." PG Contracting took the job understanding the challenges, kept me informed through the process, and demonstrated excellent workmanship... problem solved - dry house. The crew was professional, polite, courteous, and cleaned up after themselves. I'll be using them for all my future home improvement needs.

Nathan came out to my residence and viewed the projects I wanted done. He gave a quote on the projects quickly. We agreed upon the costs and he took a down payment and didn't ask for the balance until the project was complete. Nathan and his crew worked on the weekend and after-hours to get the project done. I would definately recommed him for any construction projects a home owner may have. Nathan took down the existing pool deck and rebuilt a new one. He also replaced the wooden front hand rail with a metal one that is cemented in to code.

As a hardwood flooring contractor, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Paul for over 10 years. He is a creative and inventive thinker, and it shows in his work. His remodels, including kitchens, bathrooms and basements, as well as a 2nd floor redesign that comes to mind, are all stand-outs. He is responsive in communication too which makes it easy to recommend him to our friends and family. My wife, a Realtor, recommends him to her clients as well.

I was a bit sceptical hiring a handyman because I've had pretty bad experiences in the past. However, his services were superb! He was very flexible, courteous and punctual with his work and time. I am a person of many questions, all of which he could answer so he is definitely knowledgable. I would highly recommend Hosey Handyman Services.

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.

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.
