Ragini Parekh says, "This is the third time I am using GMATT builders for renovation, and this is the largest and most extensive renovation I have done to date. I am extremely happy with the work that I have received on all three of my renovations with GMATT builders. The first renovation that I had with GMAT builder was at my previous house, it was a roof replacement. The second renovation that I had with him was the installation of a very large picture window at my first house. Both jobs were done within the time frame that Mr Gomez had advised, and they were done very well.For my most recent renovation, which was the extension of the back of the house, with an addition of approximately 350 ft, plus a new kitchen, plus a new laundry room, shower, and a new pressure treated deck that is approximately 360 ft. After getting bids from multiple contractors, I once again contacted Mr Gomez for a bid. His bid was competitive with the range that had been proposed to me, and having worked with him over a time frame of 20 years gave me the confidence to go ahead with him on this job, the largest job to date.His work is excellent. The building of a crawl space, new exterior walls, roof, finished walls and floor, installation of porcelain tile floors, installation of the shower, installation of a skylight as well as several windows and two doors, the installation of my cabinetry, including the crown molding on the cabinetry, installation of the lighting, and last but not least of all the installation of a 4,000 lb steel beam to hold up the entire second floor of my house have all been done very nicely. Mr Gomez is on the site almost every single day, And he does much of the work himself, along with his employees. I find that he brings the same employees time and again, so I feel confident in knowing that he has trained and supervised them well, and is not the type of contractor who has a part-time crew working for him intermittently, which is one of those things that we are told to watch out for. I felt very confident leaving him at the home to do the work while I went to work myself, knowing that the work would be done properly.Mr Gomez is receptive to my inquiries, and answers all of my questions very patiently. He addressed all of my concerns. I have been very happy with the overall work. I did have some issues with my heat, some heat loss, some issues with the tile work and the trim work that were noticed after the completion of the job, and he has been very attentive to taking care of all of those needs.If ever I need to have another small or a large renovation done, I would not hesitate to contact Mr Gomez again. I have been using him for several smaller jobs over the last 20 years as well, not including these three larger jobs, and have always had a positive experience with him.Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Please take a look at my finished kitchen.Thank you Javier! You rock!"See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

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.

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.

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.

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.
