After enduring several months of frustration, inconveniences, and outright deceptions, it was a welcomed relief to find a thorough, professional and very helpful team of contractors who did everything asked with the attitude that gave my family the restored confidence in home improvement service. I would highly recommend Smart Improvement for any home renovation/repair or restorations needed.

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.

This is really more of a 4.5-star review :) We're first-time homeowners and hired Tom for a kitchen renovation and a few other small projects. We are really pleased with the results! Tom worked as quickly as possible and communicated well with us throughout the process over text and phone. In moments of frustration and delay (to be expected when coordinating with the town on permits and with subcontractors), Tom was even-keeled and worked with us to find fair solutions. His workmanship was good and he was quick to fix any/all small issues that we asked about. Tom was a reliable, personable, and his price was fair. We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for another project.

Complete bathroom renovation. Demolition, removal, new walls, all new fixtures and tub plumbing, custom built-in cabinetry, and porcelain tile floors. Glenn and partner measured meticulously and finished everything when they said they would without damaging stair and hallway. Couldn't have asked for more for this cramped upstairs renovation in our older home.

We hired Corniel Construction to renovate our midtown Manhattan apartment. We added 700 square feet of ceramic tile and renovated the fixtures in the bathroom. The project was completed quickly, and we are very pleased with the results. Waldy was extremely professional and responded quickly to all our concerns and took initiative in making the project look right. I highly recommend this company and look forward to working with them again for our next renovation project.

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.

JTK Remodeling, Tim, did a fine job with the projects I needed help with. He was right on time and got right to work. He had asked me to send him pix prior to coming to do the work so he prepped and made sure he had the right materials to complete the job - no surprises - well there was 1 little surprise, not his fault, and he managed to work around it anyway. Very personable.

We hired Mura Construction and Maintenance for our renovations. As first time home buyers, taking on a huge renovation project, we were very nervous. However, Carlos and Lewis did not only put us at ease but also made this experience fun! They are honest, timely, trustworthy and have excellent foresight of what may be needed in future. We have found our renvo guys!!! Thanks Mura Construction. (Lewis and Carlos)

Got a brand new roof installed, it looks very nice and was done quickly (took just 2 days). The workers who did the roof were nice guys and worked very hard in tremendous heat. I have no complaints about the work done. However, the manager Edison... that is a different story. I am not going to leave a bad review ONLY because I feel bad for the workers and don't want them to lose their source of income by not being hired again. It is not their fault that they have a horrible boss. Edison truly needs to re-think his interaction with customers and maybe take some courses on effective communication, responsiveness, anger management, and honesty. When I originally wrote this review in Word, it was about 2.5 pages, but I decided to be the bigger person and just let it go. Edison - I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you can treat future customers better than you treated me.

Angelika worked on a residential project for me at my home on Fifth Avenue in New York City, in which she led the project management for a complex apartment remodeling. She worked very effectively with the general contractor and various subcontractors, and did an excellent job with all aspects of the renovation, including the design work at the onset. She coordinated the work of various contractors and artisans, some of whom were not very cooperative. Angelika helped bring the project to conclusion in a timely manner, interacted very effectively with all of the subs, and ensured that the job got done on budget and on a reasonable schedule. Perhaps most importantly, she brought her creative skills to the project and made the renovation beautiful. Harvey B

I was referred to Justin at C & G Builders by my Realtor when I purchased my home. Originally it was just going to be a bathroom renovation, but after a short while I realized Justin and his crew were great to work with and were doing a great job. So I expanded the project to the kitchen and 2 other bathrooms. The crew never missed a day and was always there before I left for work. Everything came out great and I will definitely use Justin again.

Service was very professional and timely...I was recommended creative renovations through a friend and decided to give them a try. I decidend to have them give me an estimate on building an extension to my outside deck and honestly couldn’t have been happier. The price I was quoted ended up being only a fraction of the quality. Pretty soon me and my wife plan on doing some work in our basement and remodeling our bathroom. I will be calling them back for that job as well! Thanks so much for your superior service guys, I will be telling all my friends about you!

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 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 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.

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.
