I hired Sergio and his crew to repair a staircase and replace a carpeted area with engineered flooring. What I loved about this team was the responsiveness to any question and their punctuality. I've worked with a lot of contractors, and it was good to know that these men would arrive when they said they would, unlike many others. Also, I was completely comfortable with leaving them to do their work while I ran errands or worked outside the house. I rate them 4 stars only because I noticed a problem with the work, after it was completed. However, even though Sergio had been paid in full, he responded immediately to my concern and he came out to assess the problem within a day. The issue was fixed to my complete satisfaction. I think this is entirely worthy of note. Many contractors might have been hard to find, since they'd already been paid, and I might have been stuck with a bad feeling and an unsatisfactory outcome. Instead, Sergio came out to see the problem, discussed possible solutions, and scheduled his men to do the work, all in a timely manner. I am very pleased with the outcome and would not hesitate to hire this company for future projects.

Ron and his guy installed two light fixtures and three ceiling fans for me. They did a great job! Were very responsive, on time, and the work was great. One of the ceiling fans needed further adjustment, so he came back and fixed it no problem. Our regular contractor wanted to charge four times what Ron did. I am thrilled to have such great work available at such a reasonable price. Thanks, Ron!

This was without a doubt one of the best experiences I've had with a contractor. I had work done to remove a large fallen tree branch and repair of the fence that it crashed through, as well as deck repair including replacing a rotting deck post. Jaime got back to me almost immediately after my thumbtack request, came out the next day for an estimate, and completed all the work a few days after that. He was very easy to work with and he even fixed a few other things I noticed while he was there working. I would highly recommend him for your job.

Jim's work was impeccable, speedily completed, and very competitively priced. He said to us, "You don't want me in your house for two weeks dragging out this job." But, in truth, wouldn't mind--he's a really fun guy to have around! The job he did for us was a pair of built-in bookshelves. At 10-ft tall and almost 6-ft wide (and with the uneven walls, ceilings, and floors that come with new construction), it was a real task, but Jim was really skilled at troubleshooting issues and finding the appropriate materials. I'm confident that the finished product is far superior to what our custom homebuilder would've built. I can't recommend Jim's work enough, and in fact will be posting his information on our neighborhood list serv, in other words staking our reputation on the quality of his work. Is there really higher praise?

Rob Early and his guys did an excellent job installing our privacy fence and extending an existing fence on our property. He listened to our needs (keeping our persistent dogs in the fence!) and frequently asked for our input during the project. Rob was timely and finished the project before we even needed it completed. I recommend him to anyone looking for a contractor in the triangle area!

I had some water damage from several days of rain. I received several estimates for the damage, but Ron was the only one that was more concerned about where the water was coming from and actually fixing the cause first. He worked with me with my budget and treated my house like it was his own. I have already recommended him to people I know. He is thorough and personable and I look forward to working with him again on projects. I would highly recommend the Ursini Construction Company for your general contracting needs!

Daniel can handle almost any home construction project. He is responsive, knowledgeable, and reasonably priced. He works quickly, so you don't need to worry about your project going on forever. He's done several jobs for me. Most recently, he build a 16' x 16' screened porch, which I've been enjoying for several summers. We are discussing future projects, now.

I highly recommend Bill to anyone seeking a general contractor. Several months ago, Bill reinforced our deck for a hot tub and reinforced an area under our living room for a large saltwater aquarium. He also tiled our floor and knocked down a wall. He was very professional and courteous. He got the job done in a timely manner and for a fair price. One of his workers accidentally broke a window, but Bill replaced it promptly and with no issues. We're planning to hire him again for future projects!

I hired Dan to install a new, permitted, 550sqft freestanding deck. Dan did an excellent job and was very easy to deal with. He showed up every day at the time he communicated, which is not typical of contractors. The project turned out to be much larger than we both anticipated, but Dan stood by the initial estimate on which we shook hands.

After my home was broken into just days before Christmas, without hesitation, Mike was on location and worked quickly to get my home secure. He was attentive, listened to and addressed my concerns and was clear on what the very reasonable costs for repair would be. Beyond that, he was very conscientious about making it right, attentive to detail ensuring the new door was properly installed and erasing any evidence that a break-in had occurred. As the original door had been installed without proper flashing by another contractor, Mike not only replaced the damaged door, but corrected the developing wood rot and emplaced the flashing as it should have been. As I was working out of town, communication was outstanding, professional. He sent frequent photos of the entire process from tear down to final touches. Attention to detail: setting the new door ensuring it was plumb, no airgaps in the weather seal, installing the new siding (to replace what was damaged by break-in), caulking, painting the sheetrock and the external siding and clean up. Break-ins are violating and unfun. Mike really took the emotional edge off of it, getting the job done and done right at a very reasonable rate. I would certainly call upon Raleigh Property Services again in a heartbeat should the need arise.

We had a great experience with Jordan from Carolina Building Pros! He’s bright, punctual, professional, tidy, respectful, knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, is great at what he does, and has a great eye for detail. As an interior designer myself who’s worked with many contractors in the past, a good eye for detail is hard to come by, and Jordan has got it! He renovated a few attic spaces into a fun playroom for our son, a storage space for media players, and a place to mount our TV. We are so happy with his work and would recommend/hire him again in a heartbeat!

I went with my gut instinct and chose Kimberley and Patrick to re-tile my guest bathroom floor. They were quick to respond and answered all of my questions. The thing that set them apart from the rest was that they eased my concern about leaving subcontractors at my house to help with the job. They assured me that it would just be the two of them, and they held to their word. They estimated how long the job would take, and they worked very hard to make that happen. Highly pleased and definitely have them on my "call list" should I need any other projects completed (which knowing me...I will!). Great job, guys!

Kitchen and Bathroom Raleigh remodeling project. I really enjoyed having Mr. Coble over and updating our home. He was a great contractor to work with and knows his profession very well. I would highly recommend Coble and Associates to anyone. Yes, I would hire him and his company again for any future projects. Please consider and hire this company, you will be satisfied with the overall process and details in the project.

We hired Catalyst Construction after another contractor failed to finish a remodel. They came in and took over where he left off. They were able to right a very big wrong for us and for that, we will be forever grateful. They are a company that can be trusted and I highly recommend them.

I relocated out of state and in the interim I put my house for sale. My realtor showed me some estimates without remodel. After reviewing the comparables in the area I decided to put some work into it and am I glad I did. Like many of us there was a budget to stay within. Pondered my options for a short while then I hired Alan to do some bathroom remodel, painting, deck, tile work, laminate flooring, and a variety of small jobs including electrical and plumbing work. When the projects were completed my husband tried to talk me into keeping the house because it looks so nice LOL He traveled quite a distance and did a great job. What I was equally impressed with was after his work was done he stuck through the entire inspection process for my closing. The house was only on the market for 4 days and I received full offer. Pretty impressive to me. Good listener, nice work, and just as important Alan had that old fashion work ethic. Took pride and showed up when he said he would on all occasions. I think he was just as concerned in my budget as I was even when he was purchasing supplies for me. I am definitely grateful to had found someone affordable and hard-working who actually cared and did a great job. I would definitely recommend Alan Melton.

I called several contractors (12 to be exact) and received a call-back from eight, one being AMC Contractoring. Carlos, the owner was professional, prompt and thorough; he scheduled someone out to assess the work within a day and showed up himself for most of the work on every day of the project. We hired AMC to get our house ready for sale and Carols respected our budget and event found additional ways for us to save money and make the project better. We had to make a small change to how we wanted to repair some damage, and Carols quickly amended our quote with no delay to the start of the work. I noticed later that some paint in a room looked off and Carlos came out the same day to repaint the room. The thing is, I was mistaken and the room was not part of the original project. Carlos laughed it off and said that it was both of our mistakes and didn't even charge us for the extra room. I've never met a contractor who was willing to build-up a relationship rather than build-up an invoice. For that reason AMC is now working on a project to get my monther's house ready for sale as I write this review. Even better, AMC's cost was competitive (no hidden fees, as was the case with several of the other quotes) and the quality of the work was excellent. We will definitely use AMC's services again in the future.

As a local realtor, I've worked with many contractors over the years and can say without a doubt, that Ciucevich Remodeling is highly recommended. They have a great team to work with and are very straight forward with expectations and timeframe.

I am a senior who does some real estate investing. I bought an old house that needed almost everything done to it. I was looking for a general contractor who knew what he was doing and took obvious pride in his work. I found all the qualities I wanted and needed in Jonathan of First Cut Carpentry. He could do the majority of the work, and all his subcontractors were totally reliable and experienced. Couldn't be happier, the final product was spectacular! Highly recommend!

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.
