I didn't have an opportunity to use Jason's services, as the situation was resolved. However, we communicated on several occasions. He was attentive, responsive and more than fair with his pricing. I have included him in my arsenal of contractors and whenever the need arises, I plan to call Berry's Home Improvement.

I am an absentee landlord and needed a new water heater for a house in Sunnyside. Clear and timely communication is very important for me when hiring contractors. Edward responded to my calls very quickly, gave me complete information and arranged appointments with my tenant to bid and then perform the job. He used top quality materials and did a great job at a fair price. I will use him again for my plumbing needs.

Greivin is a very reliable, honest and responsive contractor who did a great job at repainting our house. I offered him the job after he submitted the best bid among 4 contractors to paint my 1340 sq feet house in Hoboken. My walls were painted in dark colors with different rooms having different colors and we were shifting to all white - he did a great job that needed four coats and also agreed to repair our wooden floor in a small corner for no extra cost. He has done a great and timely job - in a condo building, he did the job with no disturbance to neighbors. Highly recommended.

PROJECT: Remove and install an exterior door. Darin came to my home a few months ago to evaluate a project I listed on Thumbtack. He provided a quote in writing within hours of meeting us. He was one of a few contractors that presented a written contract that detailed the work he proposed. He arrived at each of our three meetings on time. He completed the job tasked efficiently and left the work space clean and clear. His work was excellent!!! My husband and I would hire HBR again...in a heartbeat!

My experience with contractors, including this company, is that you have to have patience. When a job has multiple areas of concentration (electrical, plumbing, carpentry, etc.), there may be different people doing each service; which means that everything is dependent upon each person doing their service in a timely manner, otherwise possible delays. Also, most contractors have multiple job sites where their people are rotated where needed. Since no one can predict a problem will occur, this also causes delays in getting a project completed. All of this is the nature of the job. As I mentioned before, try to have patience. Renovation projects can be frustrating and sometimes upsetting; but if everything is done correctly with minimal errors, the most important thing is that you are happy with the skills provided and the quality of the work completed.

Mr Roman has been one of the best contractors I've found on this app! After going through three plumbers he finally diagnosed the problem and completely fixed it so that the sewer ejector system is working and no more flooding problems. He did the work in a day, repaired any holes in the Sheetrock so that it looks brand new and cleaned up after his work. I hired him to solve some other problems that other plumbers had given up on and he tackled the jobs. I will consider him my go to call whenever I need help on my house from now on!

Nertil removed old kitchen cabinets, removed old tile, and replaced with new tile. Very very fair with pricing! He was extremely helpful along the way and does an excellent job. I have completed several home renovations and was very impressed with Nertil's professionalism. He always got back to me and responded immediately to phone calls and voicemails. His attention to customer service was alone a reason enough to hire Nertil to do the job for you. It is amazing how the majority of contractors don't understand professionalism and customer service. Nertil was one of the most responsive and professional contractors I have ever dealt with. Highly recommended and will definitely hire Nertil again for future projects. Don't look anywhere else! Call Nertil!!!!

It's been a pleasure to work with Home Geeks. Our renovation hasn't been finished (will update when the job is done) but so far, Vincent and Richard have been professional, responsive and patient. As an architect, I have worked with a lot of contractors, and so far they have been great. They have the experience and knowledge to give us good recommendations and they care about the client saving money by reducing the scope of unnecessary work. Their fee is reasonable also. Thank you, guys!

we hired Mauricio 's M&D Creations to refinish our kitchen cabinet after a few quotes and meetings with 4 contractors. Except for Mauricio, none of them came up with a sensible price. one of them MIA after taking the measurements. we were in a desperate situation as we moved in without renovating the kitchen. Mauricio came up with a plan that allowed us to have a new kitchen within 4 weeks with a reasonable price. I was in love with the industrial/rustic kitchen and want to have it in our high-rise condo. I was also very specific about the stain and finishing and insisted to use reclaimed wood that we couldn't afford. Mauricio was patient enough to test different stains and glaze in different solid wood to achieve the weathered look for us to choose. The day he arrived our apartment to replace the doors and install a couple of the new cabinets and drawers, we were amazed with the finished products. It was exactly what we wanted but without costing us a fortune. Mauricio is a very responsible, fair, and honest contractor and he loves what he does. I highly recommend him.

Based on what I am going to say - one might think I am a friend of the contractor (Shawn) - let me assure you that I did not know Shawn before meeting him through Thumbtack asking him to come to my home to give me an estimate on finishing my basement. I have had horrible experiences with contractors in the past and sadly I expected this project to be no different. Much to my SHOCK it was an entirely different experience working with Shawn. For starters, I received 6 quotes on finishing my basement and Shawn had one of the lowest (fairest) price estimates. Two of my estimates were almost double the price of what Shawn's was. Shawn even suggested we frame the walls slightly differently since they were not load bearing and he checked with my township to make sure they would approve the slight difference and that alone saved me $1,000. Not one other contractor suggested this. Several contractors told me that my basement would take at least 3 months or so to finish and Shawn had it done - inspected and all in about 3 weeks of work time. He was always responsive to my emails/texts/calls to him, he showed up every single day that he said that he would and showed up on time (8 am). This even included showing up when it snowed and was below freezing weather. He worked a full day only taking a brief (sometimes only 30 mins) lunch (I've had other contractors who disappeared for hours during 'lunch'), and he cleaned up whatever mess he made as he was leaving each day - literally sweeping/mopping his way out of my front door. He was friendly, courteous, caring, professional - AND he did a fantastic job. My basement looks absolutely amazing. It was completely unfinished and its hard to believe that by looking at it now. I was so pleasantly surprised to have such a positive experience and pay a fair price and have my basement turn out amazing. I would recommend Shawn without any hesitation. He even noticed my tire was flat one day as he was entering my home and he filled it up with air for me. I truly can not say anything negative about the experience at all. Positive experience in every single way - and a great final product.

It is my pleasure to recommend the excellent work of Rick Doggett who was the general contractor for a remodeling project of my apartment in Jersey City. From the initial interaction and proposal phase through construction and the timely completion of the job, Rick and his crew performed at the highest level of professionalism, work ethics, and dedication. The work involved a complete re-structure of the internal floor plan, moving walls, installing new fixtures, hardwood floor and carpet, electrical, plumbing, and painting, while communicating with an owner who was not on location. I would, with no hesitation, engage Rick in any future construction or remodeling that will come-up. Thank you Rick and crew for a wonderful job.

I've been using the internet since it was a black screen with green text lines. I can build computers from scratch, but I don't much go for social media-- in fact, I've never reviewed anything on amazon, or home depot, or yelp, or anything else. That's a long way to say that this is my actual, first, and only review, and I'm doing this because Felipe did a great job, and he deserves the recognition. I found him to be intelligent, thoughtful, hard-working, and careful with his craft. He charges a fair and competitive price, works fast, but works in a way where it seems that he's working on his own house when he does yours. Although he did some drywall work and floor trim which looks great, his tile work is the best. And since life is not perfect-- walls are crooked, floors are not perfectly flat, buildings and structures can shift and move-- if something doesn't come out right, he takes the time to make it right. For those of you who are tired of talking to contractors and would rather get started, I think Felipe is going to be a breath of fresh air. Thanks, Felipe, and let me know when you're in the area so I can show you the next project.

We have lived in our house for over 25 years and had many contractors and our experience with Zsolt (George) was probably the best that we've had yet. His quote was significantly lower than all other quotes for the tile work that he did for us and he offered a few additional services for very little additional cost, including painting. He freshened paint on walls and a ceiling that we did not even include in the quote. He was great to talk to and I think we'll actually miss having him around. Big thumbs up.

Absolutely amazing experience with these guys!!! I was extremely impressed with their puncutuality- they arrived early each morning & finished the product exactly when they said they would. Most importantly, the final product was of great quality; my favorite thing about All-Rise is that they are extremely detail oriented.. very hard to find!! I’ve had issues in the past with other contractors & their unresponsiveness... everyone that i’ve spoken to at All-Rise was extremely informative and knowledgeable; these guys really take pride in what they do. Highly recommend.

First of all Galaxy 1 home improvement were excellent!! I had a bad experience with a contractor in the past and I was looking for someone to do my kitchen but hesitate with the contractors I got an estimate from. Either their price was not what I could afford or their paperwork was not correct for what the coop wanted. Mr. Gary Singh was pleasant, respectful & professional from the first time we met and had all correct paperwork. Mr. Gary kept good on what he plan to do with my kitchen & the rest of my place. Him and the guys that worked on my place are trustworthy,respectful and professional. I recommend him and his crew 100%.

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.

For more on where to start when remodeling a bathroom check out The Complete Thumbtack Bathroom Remodel Guide.

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.
