Steve came out and replaced my water heater even when it required some extra work. He even came out on a Sunday and stayed till it was done. Was happy with his work and his pricing. Felt comfortable having him work in my home with me and my small child. Would hire again for other handyman jobs!

Jose did a fantastic job refinishing our ceiling and daughter's playroom. He was on time and professional, but he also went above and beyond in terms of the work. He took care of a minor plumbing issue around the wet bar he removed and told me "don't call the plumber, they'll charge you and arm and leg—I'll take care of it." Then he just stubbed the pipes, took care of it and didn't ask for any more money. I paid him a little on top anyways. Because he's a pro and he deserved it. I would hire 100 Joses to remodel and paint my house right now. I'm using other contractors and wishing he did it all. He just does really awesome drywall.

They helped me out on short notice, after we had waited weeks for another contractor who kept giving me the runaround. They took care with the place, covering the floors they’d be walking on as well as certain areas in the kitchen. I highly recommend them.

We had two double windows replaced, a plate glass bathroom window replaced with an acrylic glass block window, and had a half moon window removed and replaced with lap siding on the exterior and sheetrock on the interior. The work was done quickly and expertly - could not have asked for a better first time experience with a private contractor! We highly recommend Marcus!

The work was done so well I added the basement to a project that included the kitchen, living room, bathroom and even resurfacing the bath tub. The team that serviced my home was always professional, listened to my vision and met and exceeded my expectations. TMC is now my "go to" contractor for home repairs.

They did an amazing job! I will definitely hire them again on future home projects. My new home had popcorn ceilings I wanted gone. They delivered me a quote to have this removed, finished, and painted quickly and completed this job in the same week! I'm so happy with their work and my new ceilings.

Jared and his crew built a wonderful deck using composite decking that we had purchased through Cargo Largo. The assembly of the product was unusual and scared off a few contractors. Jared was confident that he could make it work and he did. He found a compatible product for the fascia and kick plates. He also color matched paint for the posts. We added a small deck and stairs off the side of the house to the original bid. Jared was clear about the additional cost and time. They worked around weather and a few problems that were uncovered. They had to leave one day before they could rework a railing that was out of line. He pointed it out and assured us that it would be redone. I'm not sure I would have noticed. We are very pleased with the decks, and felt that they did excellent work for a very reasonable price.

I hired Jim to install an electrical outlet in my home where there was not one. First, let me say that Jim was prompt to respond to my service request. I scheduled an appointment for him to come to my home to assess the job and provide me with an estimate. Jim arrived promptly, quoted a very fair price, and came ready to do the job. I hired him on the spot even though I had an appointment set for another professional to give me an estimate. Jim is very professional, yet personable, and efficient in his trade. The install was neat and clean, and Jim was careful to cleanup behind himself. I will definitely hang on to Jim's contact information and consider him for future home projects, as he is a general contractor and experienced in various construction trades. It should be clear by now that I highly recommend Jim Mowrey, owner of Kustom Remodeling. You won't be sorry. I'm sure not!

We reached out to five contractors all of which said they could not start until July. None impressed us at all. David then gives us a bid by email within 48 hrs. and then we meet and discuss scope of project and set a date for start. We never expected him to work solely on this project from start to finish but that is exactly what he delivered. Timely arrival times arranged in advance with us, excellent communication throughout even while working in our home, touching base, asking questions, clarifying details. David exceeded our expectations and found a window that we only discussed verbally on the first meeting and it looked fabulous when in place. We will work with David again on multiple projects because he shows integrity with the quality of his work as well as shows up when he says he is coming to start work. He finished exactly on schedule with having to arrange electrical contractors. We are still working on other projects and looking forward to hi, assisting us with those. Lana Lee

Shannon is great at what he does. He installed two storm doors for a very competitive price. I would give this guy 10 stars if I could. Very confident in his work and it shows. Other contractors on Thumbtack were telling me it would take one to two days to complete and Shannon had both doors on and ready to go in a matter of a few hours. I will be keeping his contact info for any future home projects. Thanks a bunch Shannon!

Over the 9 years I have owned my home in Overland Park, and my experience with numerous contractors, undeniably, Aaron has been the most ethical contractor I have had to work with. Over the past year, he completed 4 projects in and around my home including electrical, kitchen, deck repair and refinishing. He's a craftsman and has immense pride in ensuring the homeowner is more than satisfied with his work. On the most recent project in June 2015, he was not happy with the work by one of his employees. He said it was not up to "His" standards so he spent the entire day re-doing the work. I would definitely hire Aaron again for several reasons: (1) He knows his trade - mechanical, electrical, remodeling. (2) He takes pride in his work (3) He does what he says (4) he's reasonably priced. In fact, I told him he needs to raise his prices as there are competitors who charge much more and do much less. Thank you Aaron!

Matt was very prompt, communicated well and was able to meet me the same day. He was knowledgable about our project and familiar with the permit process. Although we were unable to hire him at this time due to a different complication, we would have been very comfortable having him as a contractor. If we have any future projects, he will be the first person we call!

Working with Shane was a great experience. He not only lowered his original quote from $200 to $150 for me but he also helped me with another issue I had. He seems very knowledgeable about all aspects of home care. I will definitely be hiring him again soon.

R&R helped me out after another contractor I hired (on thumbtack) didn’t show up. I contacted Rinald on Sunday morning and he was there before noon that same day. My wife and I are selling our house and needed a couple things updated/installed and he had it done in a couple hours at a VERY affordable price. I will definitely use R&R Construction again!

Excellence to details, excellence of how she handles her contractor and she is born to design. Karin is very good at listening of what you need as a homeowner and then coming u with a plan of how to give you what you want in your budget without loosing functionality! Karin Ross and Building Pro (the contractor Karin works with) recently did my master bathroom and was nothing less but spectacular! Every time I had a question, Karin was available quickly and took care of what I needed. Remodeling can be frustrating but with Karin's support and professionalism my master bathroom looks like it just come out of a magazine. Thank you again!

Don’t let the name UltraClean fool you. They do more than clean. Michael and his crew pride themselves in doing a variety of home improvement projects. I hired them for interior painting, deck repair, staining, sheet rock repair and basic installation. I experienced Michael’s true sincerity and professionalism throughout the job. I was impressed by his commitment during the entire process and quickly resolving some minor issues that cropped up. He has vast knowledge, experience and solutions for an assortment of home projects. UltraClean provided me with so many services at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend them for an economical home improvement project.

I have to start this review by saying that we've hired people off of thumbtack probably dozens of times. We are typically pretty happy but Fuad and his team completely blew us away with how great they were. They took the time to make sure everything was absolutely perfect and done correctly, all while making sure they were courteous to my family while working in the house. We loved the work they did on our tile floors so much that we hired them to do (4) more projects in our house! I'm absolutely blown away by their professionalism and how hard they work. As you know, when you hire most contractors, they don't show up a lot or show up late. They showed up on time every single day and worked hard for as long as we would let them. I cannot stress how highly I recommend this crew. We have lived in four different houses and have done DOZENS of different projects, and I have never had a contractor I've liked more than this team. If you have the opportunity to hire them, I would before someone else does and books them for a few months to completely renovate their house after seeing their work....as we are doing haha.

Extremely professional, detailed with excellent communication/listening skills. These are the three primary qualities I look for as a General Contractor when hiring a sub-contractor. Enrique is a poised man who lead his team in delivering a high-end framing project on an upper-end basement finish project. In addition, his team is VERY clean and well kept. A quality that is hard to find in this industry today. I would highly suggest Enrique for framing or sheetrock work.

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.  

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
