I'm not sure how to describe this experience fully, but my husband was a professional woodworker to the extent that he was hired at the college level to teach fine woodworking and furniture design. Yet, he had a very rounded grass roots education in most aspects of house renovations. Two years ago, he had an accident that left him a quadriplegic. Because of this, we are downsizing quite a bit and needed someone to help us with some electrical and general handyman tasks so we can get our house up for sale... those things my husband did not get a chance to get to. I am so happy we found Sergio! He was able to complete half the things on our list in a short day for a very reasonable cost. The remainder we are waiting for parts, but I have full faith he will complete them easily and quickly. What floored me was that he found things that our builder should have done but never did completely. That's what I truly appreciate about Sergio. He has seen what the builders do to cut corners and knows how things should really be done. And the solutions he comes up with are extremely practical and affordable. You will not be sorry sorry if you hire him for a job... and have a realistic grasp on how much your problem will cost to fix.

Mr. Dean and his son was an absolute pleasure to work with! Extremely professional and knowledgeable about the task at hand---installing brand new cabinets . Even though Lowes completely messed up the order and measurements, Men at Work was able to find a solution to the mess. Will most certainly recommend at anyone looking for home remodeling.

CMC did a fine job putting in a pre-finished floor in a bedroom. There were some minor hiccups (the installers were late, the materials were delivered later than expected, the materials delivered did not include the quarter-round molding) , but overall, the quality of the materials is good, the project coordinator (Jeremy) was responsive and knowledgeable, the installers were efficient and competent, and the floor looks very good.

Roberto is very knowledgeable professional. As a retired military man he showed extreme work ethic. Even though we ran into snag related to my house writing, he did not eat or take breaks until he had the job done for me. He teaches and informs you as the home owner and explains the task at hand. Fee was very reasonable and well worth the time and effort. I am typically a skeptic with contractors. I was proven wrong this time. I not only found a great handyman but also a friend. Thanks Roberto!

My father-in-law was a well-respected general contractor for the past 50 years, with specialties in masonry, stone work and carpentry. With my husband growing up in the business, he can immediately tell the difference between good and bad contractors. Ron is a very thorough, honest, and true craftsman who did a phenomenal job in remodeling the 1st and 2nd floor of my workshop. There aren’t too many contractors like him these days. Not only did our project surpass our expectations, he stayed on budget and on time. I would highly recommend Ron for you home remodeling needs.

Pullen Contracting was extremely professional, fair, and did outstanding work. I worked directly with Bill Pullen and couldn't have been more impressed with how easy he made everything. We had what I considered to be a few "tough" problems, but he made it seem easy and he and his team did the work quickly and for a very fair price. Drywall and painting work was seamless and blends in perfectly with each room he worked in. Mr. Pullen is friendly, offers excellent suggestions about problems that may have caused repair needs, and his work matched his estimate. I will not hesitate to go directly to Pullen Contracting for any future needs. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for drywall or other contracting work. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you to Pullen Contracting for solving a problem for us and making it painless!

Hired Dan to prime and paint a garage. The builder left it fairly rough, and Dan did an excellent job finishing it. He also installed baseboard. The job was so well done I felt compelled to give him a bit more $ for his effort. Thanks Dan - would hire you again in a second.

We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Mike. He did excellent work on the backsplash we requested and then fixed the poor work that others had done including painting various areas, patching large holes in a bathroom wall, altering a door to fully close that had been put up quickly, and putting in a new light in the crawl space just to mention some. He is truly such a gentleman. We would whine about something that was in need of work and he would volunteer to get it done. The house is empty, so he came in throughout the early hours of the morning (2am -6am or earlier) and some late afternoons to make sure he had the job done with a great deal of quality and timeliness. I had updates at least once a day and pictures always accompanied them. I turned down the contractor my realtor recommended because I didn't appreciate his attitude, and took a chance on Thumbtack. I am so glad I did. I would definitely recommend him for any service he provides, and we _will_ use him again in our new house. I just wish we'd known him when we first moved in. I'm posting some of the photos he would send each day showing each stage he was in. Needless to say, call him first before you try someone else.

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!

David could NOT be more amazing! He was always on time and very responsive. Even my painters (that came in after) said that he did AMAZING work. They said that they normally do not see such great chair rail and wainscoting and were very impressed. His work was beautiful and done in a timely manner. Thanks so much David!

I had the pleasure of working with Kimberly as the Design Manager for a home builder in the Raleigh area. She is poised, professional and has a keen eye for design. She is not afraid to be unique and bold in her approach. I am excited to see what the future holds for her and Vibrant Studios and wish her much success. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I recently sold my home and hired TEW Design Studio to stage it for the listing. It sold in a little over a month! I am building again and have already contracted Kim and Rima from TEW to complete all of the interior design specifics from cabinet design to lighting and furniture selections. They are efficient, friendly, and have a great sense of style. What an awesome team!!

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.

Reversible Renovations built a wheelchair accessible bathroom and remodeled an adjacent room to make a bedroom for my husband, who has a traumatic brain injury and uses a wheelchair. Richard worked closely with my husband's physiotherapists to design the project. Richard also provided a very detailed quote for the job. Heather, the designer, worked closely with me to choose the tile, fixtures, cabinetry etc. A custom sink was designed to accommodate the wheelchair but it also looks beautiful. A terriffic site manager did a lot of the carpentry and coordinated the other trades workers. The quality of the work was top notch, the project came in slightly below the estimate, and was done before expected. An added plus was the way each of the workers cleaned up after themselves and took pride in quality work. They were willing to make changes as they worked on the project to accommodate issues that came up, like an existing doorway that was too narrow. I can't wait to have them back to redesign my kitchen to accommodate to my husband's needs once he reaches his highest recovery point.

      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.
