Berry was very accommodating as he was able to work with my father on the repairs while me and my husband was in the hospital. He kept to the quote initially given and everything works great now. We will definitely be asking for him back when we need home improvements or repairs done to our house.

I hired Joseph to replace my bathroom vanity and sink. He did a prior walk through which was excellent. He was very clear about the reason for the walk through and about project costs. On both the day of the walk through and project he was excellent about arrival times and keeping me informed me about them. Joseph and his assistant did an excellent job with the installation. He was very polite, explained everything and answered all of my questions. They thoroughly cleaned the work area afterwards. Overall I am very pleased with the work and so would not hesitate to hire Joseph's company for future projects.

It was a pleasure working with Grievin! He assembled many pieces of furniture in our apartment and helped to rearrange the rooms. He went above and beyond to ensure that the pieces were setup correctly and even offered to come back to fix additional things in our apartment. He’s very professional, punctual and an expert in home repairs. Would highly recommend him for any home project.

We had Home Ally clean the exterior of our home windows, screens, and tracks. They scheduled the work on the next day. The team was prompt, professional, and helpful. They did a fantastic job for a fair price. We will definitely use them again.

We had Rick at our apartment this past week to complete some electrical work (swap out old light switches and install a ceiling fan). Rick was a true professional, essentially everything as advertised. He was on time, he was quick and efficient and very comfortable to have in our home. I highly recommend Rick, not only on price but his craft. We will be having him back for further home improvements. Thanks Rick!

Konstantinos went above and beyond. I needed to repair damage to my living room walls and paint over a dark accent wall to match the existing paint in the unit. I was not able to find the same paint but Konstantinos did a beautiful job blending and completely covered up the areas where plaster had been ripped off from removing a pressurized wall. Not only did he do a great job on my painting / repair but he also helped me patch up some damage to my floors as a courtesy and all at a very reasonable price (and really the best price I could find after searching Thumbtack and Yelp). Would definitely hire him for future jobs.

I hired Johnny to work on a few things around my apartment: hang my flat screen tv and hide the wires; hang curtain rods and three large mirrors in the living room; hang shelves and hooks in the bathroom; and the biggest undertaking, build a custom closet system in one of my bedrooms. Johnny arrived and was super friendly, accommodating, knowledgable and professional. He worked quickly and efficiently, making sure to keep me involved with each placement decision along the way. I have already hired him again for a couple of more projects around my home and definitely reccomend him!

As a person who owns property in different states, finding a trustworthy and reputable home restoration company is very important. TRX Damage Restoration is that company for me. After reading positive reviews online, I decided to give the company a call. The owner, was very nice and worked with me one on one to make sure that my property received the attention it deserved. Even from all the way in California, getting updates and pictures about how the process was going was a breeze. TRX made quick work of the mold in the laundry room, as well as behind the walls. TRX Damage Restoration will be my go to disaster restoration company in New York for years to come. Thanks Gene and the whole team!

Kostos did an excellent job in putting up my shelving structure after consulting with me about what I had envisioned in my head. His care and time to ensure the job was done right are very much appreciated! He will now be my support in tacking the numerous small jobs I have in my home in the coming months.

I hired Peta-Gaye to help me with my home renovation project where she did a beautiful job with my master bedroom, built-ins in the living room and completely redesigned my kitchen (which was very much needed). Peta-Gaye provided one of the best customer service experiences hands down. From the initial consultation, Peta-Gaye demonstrated confidence, patience and most important of all, a willingness to help. Professionals tend to forget that that the primary reason clients go to them is to solve a problem. Peta-Gaye’s sincere concern to help us tackle our challenge was exceptional. Furthermore, she was flexible with her fees and stayed well within budget. I loved working with her and in fact I will be retaining her services again for the design of my gym. I absolutely cannot wait to work with her again!

We had a water leak in our upstairs bathroom. Fearing the worst, I filed a claim with our insurance. They recommended First Restoration. Their people arrived promptly and went to work. It turned out that the leak didn't appear to be from a broken pipe. Their people advised me that it would probably not be covered. I appreciated there honesty. I still went through with the repair. Work was outstanding

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.

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.
