I needed a new front hall light hung. Being 16 plus feet I did not want to attempt this myself. Problem is most all electricians do not want small jobs and one even quotes a minimum of $250.00..... more than half the cost of the light! I will definitely use Rob again and also recommend his company every chance I get. This Rob was the only company who responded to my request on Thumbtack Nick Yeager

We are very pleased with our choice of Frank to do the job of putting together and installing our IKEA kitchen. Anyone who has put together IKEA furniture before knows it's quite a task! He is a family-owned business and works wonderfully with his son and wife. It was a pleasure getting to know them, all while watching our kitchen come together! Frank is thorough and precise about his decisions, always making sure we were happy. He saved us a good chunk of money, costing significantly less than the cost of the IKEA installers, while still doing a professional job. Best of all, we created a friendship with him and his family. They were so sweet to our 5 & 2 year old sons and were beyond trustworthy. Sometimes when you hire someone to do work in your home that requires a few days to accomplish, you can't wait to just have it done and have 'strangers' out of your house. I can honestly say that it was hard to say goodbye to him and his family when the job was done. Thank you Frank! We would do it all over again if we had to. We will add photos of the finished kitchen when our backsplash is done later this week!

I found that our garbage disposal was not only leaking, the housing itself was cracked. I hired Daniel because he does electrical as well, and I wanted to be sure that any electrical issues with the disposal would be taken into consideration. I picked up the new unit myself, at his recommendation; it was a bit inconvenient with my work schedule but I also knew that this would save time on the work quote, so it was OK. Daniel arrived when he said he would, and he worked quickly and cleanly. The cost was as expected from his quote. He even put all the stuff back into the cabinet when finished. I appreciated his communication with us and the quality of the work he did. I would hire him again and I would recommend him.

I hired M&M Grounds Maintenance to aerate, seed, and fertilize my yard. I am new to North Carolina, purchased a new home, but am unfamiliar with the needs of maintaining a grass yard here in the South. M&M replied to my initial inquiry within minutes with an initial estimate. M&M was very clear that the initial response was an estimate only and that he would need to see the property before providing a firm quote. The quotes I received for the services ranged from a low or $125 to a high of $225. After several rounds of email with M&M and the other contractors, I was satisfied that each contractor was quoting to the same set of requirements and revised estimates were received. M&M was the only contractor who would provide a firm quote only after inspecting the property. I liked that...no surprises after the fact. Mark and his wife, Shelley arrived at my home on schedule the following Saturday. They sent me a text message saying when they were on the way and the estimated time of arrival. After reviewing the size of my yard and the condition of the grass, Mark provided a firm quotation, introduced me to Shelley, who does the customer service, billing, and scheduling. I agreed to Mark's firm quote. The next day, Sunday, I received a text from Shelley scheduling my service for the following Wednesday in the late afternoon. Mark and his son Daniel arrived around 5:00 PM, again right on schedule. They did a great job, explained to me what and is needed and why, and how often the service is needed. M&M's lawn service also includes application of a pre-emergent in the early spring and again 4 weeks later included in their price. None of the other contractors offered this service. M&M is a family owned and operated small business that understands that customer service is the key to success. They do a great job at a fair price, and are reliable and dependable. M&M won my business and I will be using them for all my lawn care needs.

Jose and his crew did a remarkable job framing and installing a new wood (plywood) floor in my 115 year old outbuilding! It required real know-how to get this floor level on this unevenly settled building (18X16)! He also added some bracing to the roof to insure the building was sound and sturdy going forward. Most remarkable of all is he arrived early, and DID NOT LEAVE until the job was completely finished in one day!!!! All this for $1200. I recommend if you are LUCKY enough to receive a bid from G & I builders....Jump on it! You will not be disappointed!-Diane Collins, Monroe, NC!

Joe and Tina were a pleasure to work with. This was my first home and I was so overwhelmed when it came to changing the floors to what I wanted and understanding why other companies cost so much. Tina took the time to assist me with purchasing my carpet, and took many phone calls from me about the laminate I was desperately seeking out. Joe and his crew were clean, respectful of my belongings, and stayed on schedule (which is a dream in construction). This team is extremely knowledgeable and down to earth, and I have already referred him to several co-workers looking for new flooring. The wood laminate looks wonderful, as does the carpet in the living room, hall and stairs, and I was able to save some money. I am now looking forward to him installing tile in the kitchen soon!

Timeline of work to be done: After having a company back out due to a heavy work load and no time to complete ours, I contacted Ben to see if he would be willing and able to do the work we needed within a short time frame as we were moving in on the 23rd. Ben was gracious enough to meet me at our home on Thursday, August 14th, for a walk through. While here, he noticed a strong pet smell from the previous owner's pets and spoke with me about the carpets and said he could have someone out the next day to have them cleaned and deodorized. Yes, he does carpets too! That was immediately agreed upon and then later that evening, as promised, he sent an estimate on the painting project and we accepted his proposal. Description of work: In addition to having the carpets cleaned in 7 bedrooms, 2 stairwells, and 4 additional living areas, they were to paint ceilings, trim and walls in office, dining room, entry, downstairs bath, downstairs bedroom, den, kitchen, 2 stairwells, large playroom, bedroom and bathroom. Then we added to our contract our master bedroom and bathroom, upstairs hallway, bathroom and all closets in rooms that we painted ourselves. Process: The carpets were cleaned on Friday and over the weekend we noticed an even stronger smell of pet urine in several rooms. Ben sent his cleaning crew out a second time later in the week, at no extra charge, to retreat specific areas. After the second time, we were both satisfied with the results. We knew that he would not be able to have his painting crew start until Tuesday, August 19th, and Tuesday morning they promptly arrived and got started prepping walls. The gentlemen that Ben has working with and for him are top notch, very polite and hard workers. They had a lot of work to do here and worked odd hours throughout the week to make sure everything was done in time and to our satisfaction. The quality of work met our expectations and then some. From our perspective: Would we hire BWH Services again? Yes. Would we recommend Ben? Absolutely, without a doubt. What went wrong? Nothing. Ben saw a need - we were without painters and were moving in a week's time - and while he knew it would be pushing it to get the work done, he had faith in his crew(s) that they could do it and they did. Ben is a stand up guy, very polite and engaging. It's doesn't seem to be just business with him, but about building relationships to help meet customers needs for now and for the future. THANK YOU, Ben and BWH Services, for providing OUTSTANDING quality work at a very reasonable and fair price. We appreciate all that you did to help make our move a little less stressful.

Steve installed two 4'x8' overhead garage storage racks for me. He did a great job despite several obstacles, such as our studs not running in a straight line, and most of the hardware missing from the second rack. I was able to make a quick run to Lowes to get the needed hardware while Steve continued to work on the racks he had. He also helped me load all of our boxes and items onto the racks afterward, as it was a surprise for my husband. A job which he thought would take about 4 hours ended up taking 7, with a cost of $283.00. I would recommend Steve's company to anyone needing work done around their home.

I hired Rooben to move an electrical outlet (I was having cabinets installed and this outlet was in an inconvenient location). Rooben was quick to respond to any questions I had and arrived at my home at the agreed upon time. He did a great job and vacuumed the work area when he was done. Extremely courteous and professional. Very reasonable cost. I will definitely hire Rooben in the future.

Tom helped us with removing and hanging wallpaper border in our laundry room. We have no complaints or even neutral feelings about his work: • He was willing to accommodate us with taking 3 days in between removing and hanging so we could repaint our laundry room • Communication was consistent and constant throughout the work • Was always punctual • Kept the mess contained and removed/cleaned when he was done • No surprises as far as cost-what he estimated was what we paid We are finding true gems here on Thumbtack (of which I have hired 3 so far). Even though we live in Charlotte, we are finding that going JUST outside of Charlotte for our projects has led to more reasonable prices and better quality work than companies in Charlotte.

I couldn't be happier that we selected Carl to help us with our bathroom remodel. The project was quoted to complete in 2 weeks and it finished right on time, for a reasonable cost, and looks spectacular! Carl maintained excellent communication throughout the project and resolved challenges without showing any frustration. His pleasant attitude, attention to detail, and great work ethic are unbeatable. Carl will be my first call for future projects and I absolutely recommend his work.

I really enjoyed working with these gentlemen. No one is perfect, but these guys do strive for quality and value. Most importantly, they were transparent. The job ran a little over the quote because we found more damage than anticipated. Instead of covering it hiding the damage to maintain the quote, Eric instead called me before proceeding. That's a solid way to do business. Take the hit and do the right thing. And, it didn't cost that much extra anyway.

We were absolutely thrilled with Paul and his team. A tree fell on our garage and completely destroyed the roof, so I wrote to several contractors on ThumbTack to find a contractor to do the repairs. Paul responded very quickly, set up a time to survey the damage right away, and had an estimate of repair costs to me by that same evening. He corresponded with our insurance representatives to work out any discrepancies between their estimate and his, and as a result they agreed to pay for the full cost of the repairs with no issue. Paul and his guys worked extremely quickly to get the repairs done; I was honestly blown away by how much progress they made once they started working! Additionally, my neighbor, who is a sweet old guy that's restored many, many homes on his own, made a point of telling me that he'd kept a close eye on the repairs as they were being done and was happy to report that Paul's Contracting had done a very good job, in his opinion. Additionally, Paul is just a real nice guy and was extremely professional and courteous throughout. I highly, highly recommend hiring this company.

Intellivent solved a HUGE problem that I had with a failing vapor barrier and lack of ventilation that created a wet, nasty fungus & mold environment within the foundation under the house and a humidity nightmare INSIDE my house. They cleaned up and treated the wood for the unwanted growth, replaced the vapor barrier and then installed the state of the art ATMOX engineered system of fans to pull in air (when optimal) based on several measurements to keep things dry. The results are absolutely amazing! No more moisture or humidity problems and no worries as there is a control panel in the garage that monitors the under house environment, 24-7. Billy knows his stuff in this respect and I cannot give him a higher recommendation. For several years I fought a problem that I could not figure out nor understood how critical moisture control was. My problem was not cheap to fix but cost-wise was not the highest quote received. Billy’s explanation of the problem and his “fix” made so much sense and appeared way more comprehensive than others, which is why I selected it over others. If peace of mind is put in the equation then the value is “priceless”. Trust me here, you get what you pay for and you will not be sorry if you go with a Intellivent or Billy to solve your problem. Don’t hesitate.

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.
