I needed to start snow removal late in the season and other companies wouldn't take me on or wanted to charge for the full season. Benito was very willing to help at a very fair price. He has been good in getting the job done.

Nick and Ryan of NWT did excellent work to resolve a few kitchen issues. This is actually the second project Nick has worked on and I can confidently say: he does the job right, charges fair rates, and he is dependable. All-around a great experience and I'll be contacting Nick@NWT on my next home projects/repairs.

Never had much luck working with landscapers until I came across Tom and his company. I Had 4 other companies say they could come pick up some brush, 2 came and never completed the job, 2 just never showed up. Tom came and picked it all up in one hour the morning after I called. If you have a job and want it done right the first time. Give Grays lawn service a call.

I hired Mr. Walrath from out of state to coordinate repairs at my daughters home in Michigan as safety precautions for our grandchildren. He was amazing and he tackled every item of concern beyond our expectations. We recommend him highly and without any reservations. Thanks Mike you are the best! The Evans in Houston, Texas

Nicholas was VERY personable and so accommodating to what needed to be done. He continually told me "we can do that for you" and he was right. I fully recommend you looking at him and his crew- especially for home renovations/remodeling.

Got back to me by far the quickest and worked my availability. Was available earlier and called to see if they could start ahead of time. Price was fairly competitive with other carpet cleaning companies. Excited to have them back to cleaning.

The carpets look great! Late arriving due to a commercial job emergency, but Patrick notified me right away that he would be late and kept me updated by email when he would arrive. Nice, local family business with great value. I would definitely recommend!

I have switched between several painting companies before finding Robert, and I don't have to look any further. Robert was not only cautious and thorough, but he was just as meticulous with his work as I am as a critiquing customer. Excellent service from a professional who knows what he is doing!

I cannot say enough good things about Alex. He is very polite and professional. I had called him to do some siding repairs on my home from weather damage. He arrived on time for both his estimate and the repair. The morning he was scheduled to come to my home for the siding repairs, I reread his business card and noticed that it said that he also did trim work. I sent a quick email asking him if he could cut and install a few pieces of crown molding. Alex did both the siding and molding repairs and both jobs look like a true professional did them. Great job by a great guy!!!

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.

We're renovating a historic home (built in 1900) and George has guided us through the whole process from developing the plans based on our vision to dealing with commission guidelines and interacting and communicating with the general contractor. Great experience so far...

Tri State Flood did a wonderful job handling the water damage at my house. The technicians were very professional and did a great job. The prices were very fair. I would definitely recommend Tri State Flood.

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.  

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.

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.

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.

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.
