Based on Thumbtack reviews I hired Pat Kuehlewind to work on a renovation project on my 1941 home and am very pleased that I did. The first phase of the project scope included removing built-in shelving and repairing a window frame, altering a wood fireplace surround to achieve a contemporary style, removing carpets and carpet tack/ staples in readiness for floor refinishing, removing a dividing wall in the foyer to open it up and plastering in readiness for painting, removing base board and crown molding, removing wall paper, and updating light switches and sockets. Pat has a lot of experience in the carpentry and home improvement business and it shows. He is also very personable and I've really appreciated all Pat's advice during the 9 days he and his team worked on my house. Pat and his team have a great work ethic - they work until the job is done and clean up after themselves. I was working to a tight schedule to have the work finished and Pat and his team even agreed to work over the Labor Day weekend to make ensure we met the deadline which was hugely appreciated. Pat will be back to do the second phase of my renovation project to install new baseboard and crown molding, a TV mount - and I've already got a list of other home improvements I'm going to entrust to him. I can highly recommend Pat if you are looking for an experienced professional.

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 manage a apartment complex in Ann Arbor, MI and use Custom Renovation as my general contractor. Jake and his crew are the best contractors I have ever worked with. They are all professional, do amazing work and always get the job done the right way. Custom Renovation does it all from interior remodels to exterior repairs. I would recommend Custom Renovation to anyone!!

    Mike has renovated my whole house. He demo-ed and renovated my bathroom, did great tile work and added some nice features to utilize the small space. He closed off a small bedroom and made it into an awesome walk in closet off the master bedroom. He knocked out the wall from my living room to my kitchen opening the space to totally transform my home. He installed my kitchen cabinets, added crown molding and installed a heated floor in the kitchen. He replaced my front door, and put bifold doors on two of my closets. My whole house was renovated and the work exceeded my expectations. I am now having Mike renovate a lake home that I recently purchased and he is again doing exceptional work. He is easy to work with, has creative ideas and cleans up so that there is minimal mess during construction. For all of this I give him an excellent 5 star rating.

    Over the past four years, Motor City has renovated our home, room to room. What started as an outdated house has transformed into a beautiful home with an all-new kitchen, bathrooms, mud room, and fully-finished basement. We couldn't be happier. MCB brought our ideas to life and offered many of their own, working together to complete each project in a very timely, professional manner. The work is beautiful and the employees are wonderful. Ask for Matt or Dave. They will take good care of you and your project! Thank you, MCB!

    I happened to notice water dripping down from my basement wall whenever I washed clothes and also an odd smell in the and around the kitchen and washing machine. Thumbtack was advertising their on my local weather channel, so I put my quote request on the website. Avery Construction responded and came to my home to check things out. It turned out to be a water line leak from a failed solder joint. They replaced the old leaking copper water pipes with PEX tubing with excellent results. Avery Construction also discovered mold growing in the basement. They treated it with a bleach solution and installed a dehumidifier to control the moisture in the air. The basement feels drier and smells much better. I was pleased with their work so I had them remodel my kitchen and rebuild my existing wobbly deck. They had this great idea of installing solar power light on the rail posts (see photos). They also painted the fascia, soffit, repaired rotten trim around an exterior door and saved me from another year of birds nesting in my gutters by removing poorly installed gutter guards. They also cleaned and painted the gutters and downspouts. I was very happy with the house repairs and renovations Avery Construction performed and would recommend them for any construction project you may have. I would certainly have them do a job at my home again.

      This was a job that was due to a flood in my house. The toilet turned itself on and damaged two floors. Due to water damage the house was gutted. After the water dry up C H Home Improvement stepped in and had to renovate walls, floors, ceilings and more. My house was actually put back to a much more beautiful state of condition than before. His quality of work is superb. He has a definite talent, and creativity. A great eye for detail in the job. He is a very polite person which is very refreshing in a contractor. My floors are phenomenal, it was a great job.

      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 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 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.

      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.
