Brian was great! He arrived early and went out of his way to help repair a bad installation the previous owner had done on our siding instead of just hanging it back. We will definitely call Brian again. Highly recommend!

The team did an excellent job on our project. The building was completed in 1934 and the plaster repair and painting was well done and matched perfectly.

The work completed by Properties R Us was great. I hired them to repair, scrape and paint the wood siding all around the exterior of my home. They were prompt, thorough and extremely professional. Any questions that I had was answered and explained to me in detail. The work was done in a neat and timely manner. I will recommend them for your exterior painting jobs. Their prices are reasonable and affordable.

I had an old and damaged garage which needed to be replaced. Brian was with me from beginning to end. He drew up plans and explained everything from options to cost. My new 1 car garage is bigger, stronger and will last many years to come. Great job on the building, cleanup and keeping in contact with me making this project much easier to handle.

Scott Bradley has done excellent work for me repairing a basement wall leak, adding electrical wall outlets, installing doors and finishing drywall. He also has done some plumbing and installed the correct drainage system for my sump pump that also protects against back up from the drain pipe into the basement. I have recommended Scott to a couple of friends who used him and were very satisfied as well. Scott is fast, thorough and top quality. I guarantee if he sees anything that is a problem you aren't aware of he will let you know. Same thing you want from your auto mechanic. Scott is someone who cares about doing it right and protecting you and your investment. The only thing Scott could do better is more work for me when I need it. I fully endorse Scott and his work.

    I was selling a house after transferring out of state. Big A had performed a few jobs for us prior to moving, including building a deck, finishing our basement, and some drywall work. He is a hard worker that performs quality and timely work. We had some issues after we relocted, and we trusted him to come to our home unsupervised to make the needed repairs to finalize the sale of our home. The work he did was beyond our expectations. I highly recommend Aaron for any job big or small!

    Tim Warren is a conscientious, skilled craftsman who with one other man, rebuild my basement family room and large bathroom. He can do everything: electrical, plumbing, installations, paint, and most of all, carpentry work. He also has great ideas and is willing to share them. He is totally honest, polite and respectful. The quality of his work is first-class. I have called him a number of times since he completed that 4-month rehab job, and he has responded willingly and promptly to my requests for some odd-jobs. I would hire Tim again in a heart-beat to complete any job at my house -- whether it be a new build or a rehab. I have recommended him to two friends who also had big jobs and both were extremely pleased with the results of his work.

    I needed a reliable and affordable contractor for a list of home repair needs. Basement finishing, painting and minor electrical work (installing ceiling fans & custom lighting). KRT did a great job and the work was completed when he said it would be! I'll be calling again soon for landscaping needs too!

    We contacted Woodson waterproofing to give us an estimate when our basement flooded. They were friendly and showed up for evaluation just a few days later (others wanted us to wait a month before coming out to inspect ) During the inspection the representative pointed out some other issues that had been caused from water. Hesitantly we contacted an engineer, He confirmed the method of repair was the best and strongest repair. Work was performed professionally and each process was explained . We are confident in our lifetime warranty and will absolutely call Woodson waterproofing should we have any other issues. We have recommended them to family and they have been left with the same confidence in the company as a whole. Thanks guys

    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 is a mold remediation?

    Mold remediation is the process of identifying and removing unhealthy levels of mold that have colonized in a home, office, school or other building. Over time, if untreated, mold can destroy a home by breaking down cellulose-based materials (like wood or ceiling tiles) and causing a slow and messy decay. In the shorter term, a mold infestation can cause severe health problems. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mold can trigger respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritations, problems with your nervous system, and aches and pains. Mold inspection and mold remediation are often requested in tandem, although they are two separate services. Nationally, mold inspection costs range from $250 to $300. If mold has been positively identified in your house, either by visual examination or through mold testing, remediation can safely remove it. Properly trained and equipped professionals use specialized equipment (like vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filters) to keep mold spores contained while they remove contaminated materials and treat infested areas with antimicrobial spray. A key component to a successful mold remediation after eliminating the mold is ensuring that the water source that caused the mold infestation is also resolved.

    How does mold remediation work?

    Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

    • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
    • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
    • Remove affected building surfaces.
    • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
    • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
    • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
    • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
    • Perform clearance testing.

    Remove containment materials.

    How is a mold test done?

    Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

    • Swab testing: $200-$300
      • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
    • Air cell testing: $250-$350
      • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
    • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

    How do you get rid of mold?

    Mold is a naturally occurring and important part of our ecosystem. That said, excessive mold can actually be hazardous to your health. Mold remediation is usually the best strategy to get rid of unhealthy levels of mold in your home or office. If you’re not comfortable working with mold or the area is larger than 10 square feet (3 feet by 3 feet), it is highly recommended to hire a mold remediation professional to resolve the problem. However, if you’re DIY-savvy, don’t have any health risks, and are not freaked out by mold, the EPA gives homeowners the greenlight to clean mold areas that are less than 10 square feet. Here are some EPA-recommended DIY cleaning tips:

    • Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely.
    • Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
    • Throw away absorbent or porous materials (like ceiling tiles and carpet) if they become moldy.
    • Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.
    • Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Clean up the mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
    • If you are unsure about how to clean an item (art, fine furniture, etc.) consult a reputable specialist affiliated with a professional organization in their field.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
