We found Jason on Thumbtack and used him to update plumbing in a house we purchased that was built in 1940. He is incredibly knowledgable, on time, did exactly what we needed and had by far the best prices I have ever found. He did such good work that we referred him to both my mother-in-law and father for emergency services where he showed up during late hours on weekends and did not rip them off. Thank you so much for being a great plumber and an honest business man Jason! We will be referring everyone to you!!

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.

I hired Darin after getting a rediculas estimate to replace a water heater from another handyman in my house. Darin installed a new water heater at almost half the cost of what the other guy wanted. I will definitely use him again.

Let me begin with dates and facts: My house was listed for sale on Zillow and Trulia on Friday-February 17th. There were 7 showings between Saturday and Monday. Tuesday-February 21st-I received the 1st offer. Today-Wednesday-February 22nd-my house was listed on the MLS. So far-there are 3 scheduled showings for today-2 for Thursday-1 for Friday. The house is located in a transitional neighborhood which ordinarily does not generate interest-and typically houses may sit 6 months or longer before receiving an offer. Luckily-my entire home was renovated by Smart Improvement Corporation; and they do extraordinary work! So here’s the story-I needed to sell my house built in about 1902 that had been updated with D.I.Y. fixes from the 70’s and 80’s. I remember speaking to Valdemir by phone to schedule: Just something-maybe painting 1 or 2 rooms? Really-I had no idea what improvements to make. Valdemir and Wilson arrived promptly 1 day later-Blue Smart Improvement Parkas to the rescue! Wilson took transcribed notes and Valdemir took pictures. Within 1 day-Wilson emailed a plan-which I rejected--thinking more in terms of quick and passable. I am so glad that S.I.C.is not capable of mediocre work. They aim to provide “perfect work”. Anyway- No problem -immediately-plan 2.0 was created and sent. And-that is how with mindful, strategic, intelligent thinking-meticulous attention to the smallest details-and creative financial decisions-each room was transformed picture perfect with S.I.C’s. signature flat white walls and semi-gloss trim-becoming? Uniform-Clear-Simple-Symmetrical-Balanced and Beautiful. 7 rooms completely transformed (ceilings-walls-floor-doors-fixtures removed and replaced) within just several weeks-How? Of course-hard work was involved: They worked 8:00 AM to 5-5:30 PM-5-6 days a week. I expressed concern that I never saw any traces that they had eaten lunch-I related to a friend that I thought they may be angels? And-so protective of your home: Double checking that doors and gates are locked before leaving. And-so super easy and stress-free from start to finish (yes-they complete the whole job-thank you!). They really listen to your concerns -Making accurate choices-Finding the right solutions every step of the process. Each night when I came home from work-they leave the house clean-amazing changes visited my eyes: Wow-I said to myself-that got done! And-that got done! In 1 day? Oh-what else? Garbage and furniture removal to environmental code standards-Storage drop-off-Security cameras installed-Driveway signs changed…. So definitely hard work and integrity are part of the S.I.C. brand. But also-I believe what distinguishes S.I.C. from other companies is the combination of the following rare talents and traits: Natural visual-spatial ability to see potential within a mess. Natural visual-motor skills to demolish and reconstruct with precision and perfection. Highly developed organizational skills that keep the project moving forward to conclusion. Highly developed moral character: I always felt comfortable and safe for myself and had 0% worries about my belongings. So as I began-A few days ago my house was listed for sale. The excitement and success is a direct result of S.I.C.’s beautiful miraculous work. This day would not be happening without S.I.C! Collaborating with a company guided by sound intelligence and ethical standards is priceless! For your health and sanity-If you need anything done in your home - house-apartment-trailer-tent-cave-run to your telephone and schedule an appointment! Muito Obrigado Valdemir, Wilson, Ricardo and Flavio!

Nick did a great job. He came to the house on time, and mounted my 70 inch TV above the fire place. all the work was done professionally. He and his helper also moved a large TV stand I had to my basement as a courtesy. Highly recommend using Nick. I will probably use him again when I am ready to do some work in my basement.

I hired Gama for a few small projects in my house. He really can do it all. From painting to flooring, and everything in between. He is always very responsive when I call and reasonably priced as well. I would definitely recommend him as a General Contractor for any home improvements.

I cannot express enough how great these guys were. They were professional and courteous the whole time and most importantly they did great work. I never felt like my job was a second priority to any others they were doing unlike most contractors I've dealt with and they finished in a timely fashion. I will most definitely use these guys for any future work on my house.

I had a big remodeling project throughout my house (2400 sqf). 2 weeks into the project the work was already pretty much completed, they always start with the most difficult work then finish up with the details. Overall they work very fast and do very good job.

Carlos has done a big project in our house. He changed room layouts (including breaking down walls, putting in support beams), changed the entire flooring, added a new room and remodeled the kitchen BEAUTIFULLY! He sticks to the schedule while explaining every step along the way. Our family is more than happy to have found him!

Tom completely met our expectations in building our deck. The deck came out better than we could have imagined and we have gotten a lot of great feedback from family and friends. He was always available and answered all of questions in a timely matter. He was very professional with my wife and I. I highly recommend Tom for any job you need done in your house. He will not disappoint.

Excellent work done!!! 👍👍 Tom Ally from All Star Contracting performed the painting project in our house exactly how as we wanted! He was highly professional, punctual, quick to respond to texts/calls and flexible to our schedule. He was also very accomodating as we changed our mind to re-do the room in a different color. I'll definitely hire him for future services when needed.

I reviewed proposals from four painting companies before deciding on ER Fine Homes. Dan' quote was quite competitive and he was very professional as well as being very easy to speak with, communicate with onsite or on the phone/text. His team was very professional and very meticulous with my full house exterior painting job. One side of my exterior was problematic, due to the nature of the cedar used and how it was installed when the house was originally built. The team worked tirelessly to address all those issues on that side to ensure the final effect was perfect...and it was. I could not be more pleased with this work and this company. Don't think twice, give them a chance, at least get a quote from Dan. But if you engage with them, my bet is you will be very happy. Good luck!

Boro Builders was responsive and efficient with the initial quote. They worked with us and our budget and were always communicative. Throughout the project, everyone was hardworking, respectful and easy to talk to. They never seemed annoyed or overwhelmed when we asked questions or made suggestions. I would absolutely recommend Boro Builders will use them again for any new projects!

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.

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.
