Hire them! I have had more bad experiences than I would like to admit with contractors not finishing what they start, or even starting at all. This has been the BEST experience I have had-ever! No complaints so far, still have a growing list I want them to complete but I have no doubt the list will get done. They work quick and work around my schedule. Communication, which is super important to me, has been wonderful along with the quality of work. I could go on and on, just hire them if you want a stress free experience. You will not regret it. So glad I found them. I swear I am not related to them, just a very happy customer.

I don't often need electrical and installation done on my home, but Roman with Roman Remodeling was fantastic. My wife and I had some bad experiences with other contractors but Roman made everything go smoothly. With his skills, experience, and knowledge, we were able to get our fan installation with no problem. This guy knows his stuff and he's incredibly professional and gets the job done all while being very personable. Great attitude, ability, and service.

I hired Dominic to replace the broken/rotted wood that was holding the front door to my old 1930's building and rehang the door. When I posed the job on here Dominic was the first to contact me and was willing to give me a quote and have a contract ready that day! He showed up the give the quote on time and really studied the job that needed to be done and went into extreme detail on what he was going to do for the job, which I really liked. The quote he gave me was very reasonable and much cheaper than any of the other companies' quotes. I was also pleased to be informed that he could have the job done the next day! Now it goes without saying that working on an old building can be extremely tough. He ended up custom making the exact replica of the previous piece out of a 2"x 10" which looks great and was quite impressive. He hung the door and it fits perfectly now, needless to say, I was amazed because getting an old door to fit perfectly back into it's former position is like trying to custom make a puzzle piece. The work was completed on time and I was quite satisfied, not to mention Dominic was just a really nice and down to earth guy. I will definitely hire this company again for my carpentry, plastering, and painting needs. 100% recommended!

They did a great job in cleaning the deck and exterior of the house, the deck looks like almost new. I recommend WCHS for pressure cleaning work.

I put in porcelain 12 x 24. I had all the old floors removed instead of laying over the top. I am one of those people I expect a job to be done correct and have no issues saying something until it's correct or going back on the owner. I had the kitchen, entry way, 3 bathrooms and laundry room changed to porcelain, then once that was complete, it was such a great job and looked so nice, I decided to go ahead and turn the living room into porcelain, put down an area rug and put porcelain at the top of the stairs. I am extremely pleased. H.P. Hip Remodeling very reliable, professional and very good at their craft. Very competitive pricing compared to all the other contractors who wanted to do the work and will definitely use again. Very pleasant to work with and they didn't try to gouge in anyway. Judge yourself from the pictures.

This 5 STAR review comes from someone who recently lost a jury trial in St Charles County against a small construction business. Basically, the jury decided we should have expected shoddy work for hiring a small construction company. The stairs were not even close to code, so we had to find someone to tear the stairs down and re-do them to code with a permit. We found Outdoor Living Solutions via Thumbtack. Rick Miller was very pleasant, professional, and most of all knowledgeable. His team did an awesome job on the new stairs! This is a small construction business THAT YOU CAN TRUST TO DO THE JOB RIGHT!! TRUST US, WE KNOW!!! Highly Recommend!!!

We were looking for a professional contractor who could build/remodel bathroom in my basement. Troy was very helpful in explaining the process and cost efficient. He totally built the bathroom from the rough ins to the finish product. He was respectful, honest, on time, hardworking and went out of his way to make sure we were totally satisfied with the overall projects. We have referred him to several people who need/needed home improvements done. There are pictures of the project on both of his websites. We will always use him for any of our home improvements or repairs in the future.

Hiring someone to do work that you are not knowledgeable about is a daunting proposition as it leaves open the opportunity for being taken advantage of. In our case, that opportunity was wide open as we were concerned about the safety of our wiring. There are some unscrupulous contractors who would have taken full advantage of that, recommending unnecessary and expensive work, and we would have had no idea. That's a vulnerable position for a consumer, and finding someone trustworthy is invaluable. Tom was amazing. He calmed our fears and reassured us that what he saw, while a little unorthodox, was not dangerous. We had him return the following week to do some work we'd been putting off. He was professional, friendly, and helpful; and his work was top-notch. If we ever find ourselves in need of an electrician, I know who we'll call first, and I'd recommend him to anyone who asks.

Rollie and his crew did an outstanding job with building my garage. They were professional, punctual and took care in making sure everything was perfect. They even worked on Sundays which was a surprise to me. Not many contractors would do that to get the job done. There some delays due to the weather but as soon as it cleared up, they were back on the job working. I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family or to call on him for any other job that I need done. Excellent work!

Based on my personal experience, I would highly recommend Dave and Remolding Solutions, LLC. Dave was a tremendous help with a very bad home build construction situation I was dealing with. A previous general contractor (GC) I had hired with a different company proved to be unscrupulous. The previous GC was an epic fail as a business person and a disgrace to the construction industry who left my home build unfinished, in disrepair and caused other damages to my property. The situation had left me in a state of utter exasperation, frustration and on the verge of despair. Dave and Remodeling Solutions, Inc came to the rescue; restored my sanity and faith in mankind. His knowledge, willingness to assist, business ethics, genuine kindness and concern were invaluable. I am forever grateful for Dave's help and standard of excellence in conducting business!

I have been using Beyer General Contractors on ALL my projects. They have hung gates, fixed fencing for me, built me two horse stalls from scratch, hung outdoor lights, fixed stall doors and last but definitely not least they are building me my indoor riding arena! This a company that knows how to seriously do ANYTHING. Not only do they know how to do anything and everything, their quality of work is top notch.. they make sure everything is done perfectly and how they would want it done if it was theirs. They also have amazing communication, you will never be out of the loop on status of work, etc. I can't say enough good things about this company. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Despite our efforts to find a new home that was, "move in ready" the competitive home market and limited number of properties, lead us to consider buying a fixer upper and then hiring a contractor to make it "move in ready." I am an extremely anxious person and buying a new home is a very stressful situation on its own. Finding a contractor on top of everything else, was something that we had a lot of concerns about. From the start, Trinity Contracting (Tad), was very accommodating and provided us with a free estimate. During our first meeting it was apparent that he understood what we were trying to do and already had made some great recommendations. Once we decided to work with Trinity, things moved quickly and demo seemed to fly by. The scope of work was pretty large with 2 full bathroom demos, 1 main wall demo, 2 half wall demos, and complete demo of all the flooring except the bedrooms. Tad provided an aggressive timeline of 6-8 weeks for project completion and many others told me to expect double the time a contractor states. Not the case with Tad, work was almost completely done by week 8 with the exception of some minor finishing touches and we were able to move into the home on schedule. Tad was very involved during the process and took us shopping to pick out tile, wood flooring, bathroom fixture, etc. He was able to help us tremendously with pricing and also did a great job of mediating between my wife and I when we were split on a decision. Tad was also helpful about keeping our budget in mind and made sure that we did not go over on anything unless we wanted to. If there was a decision to be made which would cost more, Tad was there to discuss what things could wait and which would make more sense to do now. Tad and his wife, Shell, were very flexible at every step in the process and went out of their way to make things as easy as possible when we needed to meet. The project come out beautifully and Tad really stepped up in the end to make sure we had everything that was agreed upon despite a error made by a supplier. This really made me confident in Trinity, Tad, and his wife Shell as business and I look forward to working with them if we are lucky enough to finish our kitchen and/or basement in the future. I have already referred a couple of others to Trinity who were looking for contractors and would continue to do so if asked for a reference.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
