Let me start by saying that I wish I could give Wayne 10 stars, but since I only have the option of 5, that will have to do. Our house is over 100 years old and we are preparing to paint the exterior again. Needless to say, we had quite a "honey do" list of odd repairs that needed attention. Clapboards that were broken or rotting, the railings on the front porch were falling apart, back stairs pulling away from the house, decorative trim that was rotting, brick foundation in need of repointing, new exhaust vents, and finally new doors. Wayne responded to my initial request in record time and stopped by later that day to give me an estimate. Of all the contractors interviewed, he was the only one that completely outlined the work needed with a full materials list and cost breakdown. Others were quite vague and wanted to repair or replace more than was necessary, turning the job into something larger than it really was. That is why I decided to hire Wayne, his straightforward honesty and winning personality sealed the deal. Wayne and his crew started the job immediately and completed it in good time. They cleaned up the yard after and disposed of all the waste materials as well. Earlier I mentioned the decorative trim, he had this ingenious product that was able to halt the rot and preserve as much of the original wood as possible because there would be no way to replicate the trim without spending a ton. This technique was also used on my kitchen bay window, which ended up saving me a fair amount of money in that area. Wayne also went out of his way to find a great deal for my porch door, I described what I wanted and he took care of the rest. Wayne also offered to come back and replace any clapboard that was questionable once the painter gets started. The other area where he excelled was the masonry. I actually contemplated doing the job myself, I'm so happy that I came to my senses and left that up to Wayne. He truly went above and beyond expectations. The brick foundation including the cement pad really needed help. Wayne fixed the grout as well as re-cemented the gap between the foundation and the pad, now when it rains really hard or when snow melts, the basement won't flood. Wayne had really good instincts and advice about tackling the different elements of our project. He approached the job as if he was the homeowner with a budget wanting to spend money wisely. I'm telling you, I can't say enough good things about Wayne and his crew at L & K Construction. I will definitely be using them again in the future.

James did a great job on our kitchen floor. He cleaned the dirty grout and sealed it, revealing the beautiful tile floor we once had. James was punctual, responsive, and communicated all correspondence in a timely manner. We are very happy with the work he did!

Sam was fantastic! He installed a chandelier in my kitchen, and I love it! My children (despite my best efforts) were in his way for about 90% of the time, and he was kind and patient with them. He made sure everything was picked up, and put back into place. Very fair price as well. I will definitely keep him in mind for any future projects.

What can I say about John and Dave. Professionals through and through. I had a large window replaced in my living room. They worked together on day one with Dave coming early on day two to do the inside trim and finish work. They did exactly what they said they would do and when they would do it. I had an estimate from one of the big box stores back in September and I was NOT happy with the quote. I took a chance on Thumbtack and came across John and Dave. The end result is that I had a top quality job done at a significant savings. As an aside, I was so happy with the work John and Dave did that we're discussing the replacement of my kitchen cabinets sometime this spring/summer. GMN

These are the pros. I was new to contracting so I really had to be walked through the process. They were very patient while I gained an informed opinion and helped me to make design choices that were in my best interest and not to line their pockets. The responsiveness was fantastic. I have received fast responses to all me questions and been kept apprised of the daily schedule. Sean seamlessly schedules his crew to affect little downtime for his pros and timely work completion for the customer. I was impressed by the expertise, knowledge and friendliness of every pro he sent to my house. He handled problems and changes with experience and aplomb. I had one bathroom remodeled and another newly constructed. Sean supplied a detailed appraisal and brought the project in on budget except for the curves I threw him. The project time was extended mainly due to my special requests and unforeseen problems. The results are two show stopper bathrooms. Quality, workmanship and design are outstanding. Would I hirer him again? I am already looking at new projects and upgrades just so I can have him come back.

I originaly was looking for a price on A large second floor deck 20ft by 18ft. But my upstairs tenant moved out so this project got bigger fast. It was February I needed the kitchen and hallway torn out and completely renovated. Ray gave me A great price, He was doing so good I added two more rooms also a French door going out to the deck and some other add on .Rays years of experience payed off he made useless space into bigger closets, wider doorways. This house was built in 1910, And the renovation was done in the winter, no easy task. The deck looks heavy duty, just what I wanted, The whole project came out great, Thanks Ray and Scotty

Having known Bruce for several years I can speak very highly for his expertise, commitment and knowledge. He has replaced floors, finished bars and furniture and rebuilt our kitchen to say the least. I don't think there was anything that was not done great. He still works for me and especially if there is a problem.

Russell did an excellent job on our kitchen, bathroom and front door. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied with the project. He has very good customer service and communication skills and is very easy to work with. Russell was ALWAYS on time, which we appreciated very much and also didn't mind the dogs being here while he worked. We will definitely be hiring him again for future projects.

Although we haven't started our kitchen remodel project yet I'm very happy so far with the experience and I know this project will turn out great. My initial meeting with Brandon was excellent, he showed up on time ( I know never happens) and he was extremely knowledgeable and had some great ideas. We then met with the designer they work with and she is great. They both made great suggestions while keeping our budget in mind, they never pushed expensive options or ideas. We had a kitchen design back in two days! I fee like I'm getting a great value for the money we are spending. They weren't the cheapest but they also we not the most expensive price we received. Will update when the project is done.

Jim did a great job installing our kitchen backsplash glass tile. He showed up the same day to give me a quote and was able to schedule this project within days. He was prompt, professional, and left the kitchen as he found it. Appreciated items such as putting down drop clothes, etc to protect the floors and counters. While he was at our house we had him fix a hole in the drywall which turned out very nice. Would definitely hire him again.

True professionals are as good as gold! I put off remodeling my home for years because I dreaded the hassle of dealing with contractors and designers. When I finally committed to having the work done, I went through at least 8 General Contractors and designers to find the right fit. Each of these was either overly expensive, or had overbearing personalities, or sounded like used car salesmen.... Until I connected with Byron Cuhna and Co. Byron runs a family operated construction company that handles all size jobs. Byron came in and helped my wife and I work through the design of a large addition 26x24 on with a two car garage and bedrooms/bath above it, as well as another 15x15 family room on the opposite side of the house. Byron not only gave us great design ideas, he helped us add features that would be more cost effective and efficient. Byron and his son Eric were on the job from start to finish, and made the experience of living in "construction" much more bearable, and at a price affordable enough that I can still pay my children's college tuition next year. I highly recommend Byron Cuhna construction, I will update this review with final before and after pictures of my house. Carmelo

We hired Mr Harlow to add a bathroom and laundry room. One of the most unexpected qualities was his guidance and suggestions on things that we had not thought of. His workmanship was high quality, and we ended up with a first class addition to our home. I like the fact that he came when he said he would, and we were very comfortable with his being in our home when we could not be at home. He is highly skilled and self directed. We would not hesitate to hire Mr Harlow again. Sherry

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.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.

How much do interior designers charge?

You can hire an interior design for a job as basic as a one-room consultation or as complex as supervising the design of an entire new home, helping with space planning, choosing color palettes, and shopping for furniture, flooring and artwork. The size and scope of the job will determine how much an interior designer charges; the average national cost for an interior designer ranges from $75 to $100 or more per hour. Other cost factors include the person’s reputation — interior designers to the stars are usually more expensive — and region. Most interior designers charge an average of $100-$225 for an initial consultation, but some will charge an hourly rate, usually starting at an average of $50, for larger projects that require extensive consultations. Hourly rates may be available for smaller projects, such as redecorating a living room or staging a home for sale; for instance, shopping and consulting can cost an average of $75 to $100 per hour, while staging costs and average $95 per hour. For many homeowners, a percentage of an interior designer’s cost is recouped through the professional discounts they receive from their vendors.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
