These guys were amazing! Setting up the appointment was easy, the technician was extremely punctual and very knowledgable. I live in a 50 year old building so who knows what's behind the wall (I have the holes to prove it) - but he knew immediately and was able to get everything mounted exactly how I had pictured it. Will definitely be relying on these guys in the future!

My experience with Skilled Service Repair & Installation was GREAT!! Joe showed up on time was very knowledgeable about how to perform the tasks needed. He was very efficient in executing the required jobs in a timely and orderly fashion. My apartment walls are old and although it was a challenge hanging my 6ft 3 in mirror he made sure the mirror was secure and the area was safe for my children to play without worry. There was little to no mess when he was done and I felt extremely comfortable with the job he did. I would absolutely recommend his service to anyone in need of a service and repairman.

Juan worked in my apartment fixing the ceiling, installing a new lighting fixture, re-locating the stove, building a countertop and changing the locks on the door. Everything I needed done, he was able to do... in one day! For a very reasonable price! Juan is honest, skillful and a very hard worker. He is now the handyman for the building. Definitely call Juan for your job

I've had various issues with handymen during my tenure as a building manager. People not showing up, people saying they'd provide quotes but never getting around to it, and of course people never responding to issues after a job is complete. Manuel is none of that. He's extremely quick in his responses, priced very reasonably, and did a great job with the painting, kitchen and bathroom issues I needed helped with. I plan on using him again for more of my projects as they come along and have the utmost confidence is his ability to get the job done right.

I hired them for major renovation of my house such as floor, entire kitchen, opening a wall, painting, central air, French drain, front steps, etc. They also get ready for our rental floor on time, so we can rent it timely manner. Price was very reasonable, but last 10% of work took very long time. It was very annoying that it got delay so long since first 90%of work was done faster than expected. However, they were honest about why it was delayed which I liked about. After all, I would hire them again for further house renovation.

DaNa Clean Ups and More did an outstanding job cleaning out our garage. We were very concerned about the clean up because we were struggling to get rid of mice in our garage for quite some time and we didn't know how many items were destroyed by the mice and their droppings. This was a huge undertaking, but Francisco and his staff not only removed everything from the garage while constantly disinfecting everything as they went along, but they were also extremely courteous, kind and respectful. The job was done in 5 hours and the garage looked brand new when they were done. I absolutely will recommend them to everyone I know.

Glenn Scelza is a godsend. My old friend desperately needed help of a good carpenter to come and assess the benign neglect on the front of her antique home. Garage doors needed to be installed post haste, but the garage door company needed the repairs to be made first. I posted on Thumbtack and Glenn responded immediately. Glenn arrived and I could tell right away what a nice guy he is and is a seasoned carpenter/contractor. He assessed the project with a trained eye and zeroed in on what was good in terms of the construction and what looked bad to us, was very doable indeed.. He was very resourceful and made use of what could remain and shopped locally which I loved, for lumber, gutters, leaders and even found the novelty clapboard pieces to match the 1940's facade. He was very fair and open about what things would cost along with his craftsmanship which was worth every penny. I appreciate he could even work with us so late in the season even as winter weather set in. He will be present right after the holiday weekend to connect with the garage door people. When those vintage looking doors are installed the place will regain its curb appeal once again, thanks to Glenn. This guy is a keeper and I can see why is highly recommended! I add my recommendation to Thumbtack as well as our neighbors in the community. I look forward in working with Glenn on future projects. Thanks Glenn! Norm Peekskill, NY

Johnny quoted us a fair price on the installation of a new bedroom curtain rod with drapes and shower grab bars. He arrived on time, assessed the scope of work, and got right to it. He was very courteous, kept us informed of each step in the project and above all, did a professional job. Very satisfied.

THE BEST! David is highly experienced and extremely knowledgeable. He was able to repair the damages created by my very large puppy. He went out of his way to make sure that the repairs were up to my building's standards. He is such a genuine and hard working person. He takes pride in the work he does and makes sure that the customer is happy with the end result. His politeness and innovation were refreshing. I definitely plan to hire David again and will highly reccomend him to my friends.

Leonardo is THE BEST! came on time, very professional, extremely experienced and has a calm and friendly demeanor. He put together a bookcase, a bench and hung some pictures for me and he was really pleasant to hang out with. Honest and diligent and calm...all traits that make having someone in your apartment with a toddler much easier! I would hire him again in a second and his pricing was extremely fair.

Louhaul Junk Removal gets a two thumbs up for me!! They were expected to do my garage demolition in 2 days however it only took 1 day! They arrived early, worked 8 hours in the rain and did more than just removed my garage! They cleaned the garage, removed the badly damaged privacy fence and made my backyard look so clean and big! I would recommend them to anyone! Their friendly yet professional demeanor was very refreshing! Thanks Sidney for restoring my faith in black owned business!

Zoltan did an absolutely phenomenal job building 34 Architecture drafting tables for my school. The entire school community commented throughout this day About how incredibly kind and professional he was while doing this very difficult work. Zoltan was flexible is the initial scheduling process and was early on the day of the build. He spent a very long day at the school not stopping until the job was done. We are all so happy with the product and truly enjoyed having him for the day. I will absolutely use him again if a job such as this arises and would confidently recommend him to anyone looking for his help. Infact they would be lucky to have him. Thank you Zoltan!!! Hope to see you again!!

Patino's Home Solution came over to build some furniture in our new house. Patino was very responsive and helped us out in a pinch after we had just moved in. He even came back a second day since we had more furniture to build. Wish I had known about him earlier before we had already painted since he mentioned he can do that plus remodeling also.

Same day service is excellent. I had some bulky items that couldn't simply be thrown out in my apartment building but wasn't enough to fill a truck. Showed Angel what I needed and he quoted me on the actual work I had, and could do it within 2 hours of contacting within my budget price. Angel and his coworker showed up, were polite and professional. Would happily use these guys again!

GREAT experience all around. Jan Cogan and his team were more than helpful from beginning to end. From the very start Jan went above and beyond with early inspection notes and then continued to keep us informed of time and cost saving suggestions throughout. Jan walked through the job site with us before we purchased to assess the project and then helped us to completely transform the space into our dream home. The crew was discrete, dependable, courteous, and considerate (especially with our newborn and fellow neighbors in the building), but most importantly- flexible. Inevitable events, including changing ones mind :), are facts of life and Jan was always pleasant, open and willing to help solve a problem or make a last minute change. All in all, we just loved working with him. Bobbie Thomas Style Editor, NBC's TODAY show

I needed to have my garage finished. We bought the house three years ago and i was finally able to hire someone to do it. I have to say i couldn't be happier. They sheet rock the walls and painted them, and finished the ceiling. They helped me put shelves together and now its beautiful, clean and organized. I absolutely love the way it turned out. I also had them paint the bedrooms and they did a perfect job. They are professional, quick and have great people's skills. Worth every single penny spent. I will definitely use them again

What our customers say... Let me start off by saying S&A Contracting is officially apart of my family. There will be no other contractor I prefer over them. I have been very satisfied with my contractor and their attention and cooperation from the very start. They have been employed by my family and myself for over three years now and we cannot wait to get more work done around the house.they have been great in understanding what i needed and were proactive in recommending resolutions. For example, from picking out paint colors to installing modern sinks, S&A Contracting is proactive in researching designs to fit the needs of the customers likes and wants. They have been very good at follow-ups and supporting me when i was in need of fast fixes around the house. Simply put, they are just a phone call away. From gutting my basement and turning it into a two bedroom luxury apartment to adding a garage door and installing a new back-splash to my kitchen, they are nothing short of amazing work and can do anything. My family and friends were so impressed with the work they have done that many contracts are scheduled next, and I do not expect anything but the best results. It has been very positive experience.  ​ YOU WILL BE PLEASED!!!!!! Book Now ​ Bronwen C. and family  09/01/16

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.  

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.

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
