Once every 10 or so rainstorms, water drips onto my dining room floor. Over 7-plus years, various contractors and handymen have tried to stop it, and failed. Wayne came by, made a nearly instant diagnosis, and promised he'd be back the next afternoon to repair it -- in less than an hour. He came back as promised, right on schedule, did his thing, and thoroughly tested it with my hose. Even cleaned out the gutters so the hose water wouldn't soak my deck. Now two rainstorms later, no leak. After 8 more storms with no leak, I'll come back to Thumbtack and give him FIVE stars!

Bob has always been a amazing contractor. i was a single mother with a old house and Bob guided me and did wonderful renovations for me. He always had great advice for me. Left the work site clean and picked up and when he was done the job was beautiful. He did everything from renovating my kitchen to replacing the falling down two story plaster wall in the stairwell with sheet rock.. Bob rocks!

Dave was outstanding! As I told him, my parents have had work done at their house multiple times in the 25 or so years a they have lived there but I've never once seen a contractor like Dave! He was fast efficient and friendly! He called me to check in about his appointments, showed up on time (or early), did great work and was clean about it! As if that wasn't enough, when I needed my stove fixed he came as soon as he could, emergency status, knowing that I had no way to cook without it, showing up after a full day's work, late at night to get it done and then promptly scheduled when he could come back to get the bulk of the work done. He even remembered my bf's name on the way out telling me to make sure I said "hello" for him. I couldn't recommend any one more whole heartedly! A true professional!

Michelle was a pleasure to work with. She provided us with the plan for our new master bedroom suite. Unfortunately, all her contractors were not available in our Short time frame, so we had to choose another to complete The project in our tight window. Would use her again for design/project advice.

Very good experience with Northeast Construction. Finally some one who was able to replicate the trim I needed done! A few other contractors tried but couldn't replicate some trim I needed for my fireplace. Brandon assured me they could do it and even told me if they couldn't do it to my satisfaction I would not have to pay. Very professional and very good work.

We had complete vinyl siding and trim done on our house in Hooksett in May 2014. Jim arrived promptly for the estimate which was thorough and the price was fair. All work was performed by Jim and his brother (no sub contractors). They did a great job. Also cleaned up the worksite after each day. The entire job took about 3 weeks. No issues with the work thus far. Very satisfied.

XCC did a perfect job installing my hardwood floors in two large rooms. There were lots of complications with rooms being out of square, un-level surface around the fireplace due to mortar, and border patterns with different wood, and insets. All of it came out perfectly and with very little wood waste (way less than other contractors would have done). Xavier and his crew also did a great job replacing my damaged sub-floors throughout the entire house - a task that no other contractors were willing to take on. Xavier and his crew always worked hard and are very pleasant to be around. They have wide knowledge and skill sets and are willing and able to do anything you might need. No lazy-bones or burn-outs in this crew!

We had a storm door which was poorly installed by another contractor and was the wrong size. That contractor was unresponsive to our calls. We again contacted thumbtack and Mr. Sheehan responded that afternoon, measured the doorway, explained the problem. The next day he and his assistant installed a new Anderson door which is the correct size and fits perfectly and works as it should. However, we did think the labor charge was somewhat high.

Gerry recently did a roof job on my house and additional work on water damage to the ceiling in the bathroom. He had to work around another contractor doing a mold remediation job in my attic. He was extremely professional and has a work ethic that is of the elite standard. He had to work around issues with the mold and was accommodating with last minute schedule changes. I would recommend him in a heart beat.

My wife & I interviewed 14 general contractors for our complete home remodel project (3 new & expanded baths, new vaulted ceiling & tiled shower in master bath, new tray ceiling & barn door closet in master bed, new screened-in porch, new front porch & front door, new & expanded wall of colonial windows in living room, finished garage, siding repair). This is a big project & we wanted to make sure that we hired a GC that (1) is skilled, experienced & has a track record of high-quality work, (2) is trustworthy, ethical, communicates well, easy to work with, and, (3) charges a fair rate for his work. Ralph is a rare find and checks all of these boxes. You should always speak with as many contractors as possible in order to find the best match for your project, and, Ralph should absolutely be on that list. We are very impressed and very happy with Ralph, and, we HIGHLY recommend that you discuss your project with him before making a final decision. He's a hard-working, highly-skilled GC that does the right thing by his customers at a fair price.

Kevin was one of the best, if not the best, contractor that I have ever hired and I hired a lot of contractors in the past. He did an excellent job installing a beautiful deck for us. He was always on time and always communicated everything clearly throughout the whole project. His price was very reasonable and most importantly you CAN trust him unlike with other contractors.

    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.  

    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.

    Where should I start when remodeling a bathroom?

    Bathroom remodeling doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Before starting a bathroom remodel it’s crucial to know what you want and have a clear understanding of your maximum budget. If you’d love all marble fixtures but have $3,000 total, you will have to compromise. Being realistic about materials and money before you even contact a contractor will have you on the road to success. Here are some simple steps to follow in the planning stages of bathroom remodeling:

    • List your remodeling priorities in order of importance (e.g., 1. New shower head, 2. Replace flooring, 3. Install recessed lighting, etc.).
    • Calculate what you can realistically afford to spend on your bathroom remodel. Identify an “all in” price — meaning the absolute maximum you’re willing to pay, as well as what you’d prefer to spend.
    • Gather ideas from Pinterest about colors and finishes.
    • Research the costs of the materials and finishes you want and begin making choices about what is and isn’t possible to fit into your budget (once labor is included). If you’d like to stay under $10,000 total, but really love a $2,000 tub, plan to downgrade in other areas.
    • Request quotes from at least three reputable general contractors, share your vision and ideal materials, and work together from there.

    How do I plan a bathroom remodeling project?

    If you’re stumped on how to plan a bathroom remodeling project, it pays to hire a designer. This is especially important if you’re changing your bathroom layout in any way. Designers create contractor-friendly drawings indicating exactly where each tile and fixture will be installed, down to the light switches. This investment might cost you $300-$500 but save you significant frustration and miscommunication, while ensuring you get precisely what you want.

    If you’re going to do your own design, planning a bathroom remodeling project means being organized and planning ahead. Create a general outline of what you want and the budget you have. Identify the specific fixtures, tiles, paint and vanity you prefer. Get all this organized before requesting quotes from two to three reputable general contractors. Once you find the right pro, get a written contract outlining scope of work, materials that will be used, timeframe and payment schedule. Communicate clearly about when to order your materials so they are ready and waiting by the time the contractor gets the permits. Your job from here is to communicate clearly, pay the contractor as the work progresses, and enjoy your remodel when it’s done.

    How long should a bathroom remodel take?

    With proper planning and a good general contractor, your bathroom remodeling project doesn’t have to take forever. The construction phase of the project will always vary based on your scope of work, the square footage and the condition of your bathroom under the surface layer. Inevitably an 80-square-foot master bathroom with major changes will take longer than a 25-square-foot guest bath undergoing a minor renovation. For a smaller bathroom, a facelift — the industry term for sprucing up the surface layer (such as paint, vanity, tiles or light fixtures) but keeping the existing footprint of the space — may take five to eight working days, as long as there are no surprises like mold waiting when the old vanity comes out. A more complex bathroom remodel that revamps the shower area (customizing the plumbing, installing tile and changing the shower door), updates the flooring and cabinetry, and adds new paint and new lighting could take anywhere from one week to three weeks. A full bathroom remodel that guts the room, changing the footprint and moving the electrical wiring and plumbing lines, could take four to eight weeks or more. To keep your bathroom remodel on schedule, have your materials ordered and waiting, and don’t make any change orders once construction begins. Planning is key to keeping a bathroom remodel on schedule.
