Everything you could ask for and more! I usually never write reviews, but when it comes to hiring people and it companies to do work I felt important to share. We all know how difficult it is to find a good contractor. Elsayed came out on a Sunday and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Installed 3 toilets, dishwasher, garbage disposal, 2 faucet fixtures. Also corrected numerous plumbing issues in the process. From start to finish he let me know what was going on every step of the way. His recommendations were spot on as he came across other issues throughout the project. I always felt confident everything would get done right and did it ever! Never strayed from the up front and honest pricing. I’ve already rehired Elsayed to do more work in my home as OSA is a full service general contractor. Hire with absolute confidence!!!

It was a pleasure working with David. We hired him for two jobs, and both of them were delivered with great quality, and precision. He is very responsive (unusual for most contractors out there) and on-time. Highly recommend David for any electrical work!

Just hired Steve for my retaining wall replacement project. I really cannot say enough great things about him. He was on time, always answered my calls and requests, and did a killer job. Typically contractors in this business are not that professional and will leave you hanging, but not Steve. Check out the before/after of the wall he just did, the proof is in the pictures. My wife and I could not be more satisfied. Seriously, hire him and you will not regret it.

I've hired Erik on numerous occasions. The initial time was for furniture construction in my apartment. He was not only skilled, but efficient, honest and trustworthy. I had never hired anyone to do any work like this before - I highly recommend him for anyone, but especially someone unsure or new to hiring outside help. Subsequently, I've contracted Erik for additional projects and also for larger remodeling and construction work through my company. I really cannot say enough good things. You won't be disappointed.

Boston Best Construction crew has made an awesome job by remodeling my master bathroom. They were so nice and professional on their work. The crew is respectful and they work really hard. The most surprising thing was that I left my house with my family for vacations and when we came back the job was already done. I am glad that Eduardo and his crew took care of my house when I was not there. It shows me professionalism and ethics. Thank you for your hard work, guys. I am sure I will recommend Boston Best Construction to my friends or anyone who needs a well done job.

The question you should really be asking yourself is why haven't I hired Ryan yet? Then follow that up with bring Steve along too. Absolutely amaizing craftsmanship, professionalism, honest and straight up no BS. I gave them quite the task and they killed it. Not to mention couldn't be nicer guys and trustworthy. If they bid on your job give them a chance and then hire them. We are short 2 boards which is my fault (actually Lowe's but who's counting) and they will come back and finish once I get them. Not many contractors would you pay in full before the job is over but these guys no question. They worked like dogs in the heat, never complained and did amaizing work. See pics but I'll post more once Lowes pulls it together.

We hired Ray to renovate our unfinished basement into two bedrooms. We chose Ray because he offered to get us some needed ceiling height (of which other contractors wouldn’t even offer). Ray is meticulous in his approach to doing things right: From digging down our basement floor to get the height we wanted, to applying extra hydraulic cement and coats of foundation sealer to ensure our basement won’t leak, to leveling our staircase so we don’t feel like we’re falling when coming down the stairs. The renovation posed a lot of challenges which included budget/materials, broken dumpsters, and a deadline of finishing in time for a new baby. We made it through and are grateful. Our 2 daughters LOVE their new rooms and we couldn't be happier!

I hired Bruce Montville of Montville Construction Mgmt to repurpose an old gun case for my growing ceramics collection. Bruce did a great job every step of the way, from courteous consultation (how many shelves, how high they should be, what kinds of wood/molding) to precise, efficient carpentry. He removed the old green-felt-covered gun holders and replaced them with shelves that are are attractive, secure, and even--which is important, since some pieces in my collection are valuable, over 500 years old. He followed the specs we discussed, plus surprised me by going an extra step, treating the wood to reveal greater beauty in the grain. I expect even my grandfather, the best artisan I’ve known, would call Bruce a real craftsman, based on his standards and aesthetics. I would absolutely hire him again--whether to build more cabinets or, at a later date, for home remodeling.

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.

I hired Bruno to pour a new floor (12x20 slab) for my detached garage. Bruno was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive to both phone and e-mail comms, which I appreciated. He kept to his overall schedule well, but should offer more heads up when shifting appointed work times. Bruno charged a good price, much lower than a few other quotes I'd received and in line with the other low bids. My job had its quirks, and Bruno was pretty easy-going about the whole thing. He was casual but professional and didn't cut corners. At one point where he needed to give the concrete time before the next step, Bruno just sat there waiting as night fell. I would have been tempted to rush the process and get home, but he waited the required time before finishing. The quality of the final product is really about durability, which I obviously can't comment on at this point. The finish work is fine for a garage, but could have been more uniform and smooth. Overall I am pleased with the final product, the value, and I enjoyed working with Bruno, something I often can't say about contractors!

Adonias was very easy to work with. He is friendly, creative, and flexible. He has a very busy company, so sometimes my projects took longer than expected, but he is good about communicating. Eagle7 remodeled two bathrooms for me (I will upload pictures after I finish cleaning and organizing them). They took out two fiberglass shower/tub units, built a new tub with tile surround and a tiled walk-in shower with glass door. They replaced sinks and countertops, replaced flooring (tile in one, vinyl plank in the other), repaired some plumbing, replaced fan/light combos, and built out walls where needed. In addition, Adonias and his crew helped with a few extra requests as they came up, without complaint. We were updating most of our house this month, so there were many contractors in and out, a dog, kids, and general chaos. The crew took it all in stride, they were patient and worked around our schedule. Prices were very reasonable, and they worked with me to think through what could be salvaged/reused to minimize costs. Adonias also sourced materials as needed, not overbuying or upcharging. Highly recommend Eagle7.

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!

My project had changes along the way, but they only made the results even better. I had a vision of what I wanted and he and his team made it a reality. The quality of the work is not only solid but I can rest easy knowing I have a room i can be proud of and enjoy for many years to come. The people he works with for electrical, masonry and landscaping work were all professional and thorough as well. Kudos to all. What a difference!

The job starting with laying hardwood flooring. Then turned into a whole kitchen remodel. Bill saved me $11,000 by installing a brand new kitchen with all new cabinets and granite counter tops, instead of doing a cabinet refacing (thru another vendor). He helped with the design and picking of quality materials used and stayed within my budget. Bill and his team did an excellent job and I would recommend him to my friends and family.

Kevin and his crew replaced my home with all new windows and siding. Along the way Kevin and his crew found plenty of rot and not only took care of all the unforeseen issues but repaired them in a very timely manner at a very reasonable price. I'm very pleased with the end result. I highly recommend Kevin and his crew for any of your home remodeling projects.

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.

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.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
