We were in the process of renovating our mother in law apt and  wanted to make some minor improvements in the home. We actually requested quotes from several contractors thru thumbtack. We had received a few responses from 3 different contractors and went with  Insicoby LLC after reviewing the quality of work along with there very fair and competative pricing. During the process, I communicated with Carlos, who before coming to install the project, was very thorough in asking for pictures of the project and the tile that we had chosen for the project.  He made me feel confident that he wanted to be well prepared when ariving onsite.   Carlos also was very flexible with meeting my timeline and working around my schedule. The day of the project, Carlos and his co worker, Gato, who was just as professional and pleasant began to work dilligently and focused on the project at hand.  This project was 18 sf of staggered tile, not that much sf, but also very labor intensive as these mesh tiles were not straight edged.  they meticulousy took their time cutting individual pieces within the mesh mount to insure no gaps between the 11x15 staggered tiles to the point that it is seamless.   At one point, we had not figured for enought waste, we offered for them to just install what we had and we would just take care of the rest of it.  Both, without hesitation, offered to stay and wait for us to get the tile so they could complete the setting and cutting of the tile.  The tile store was 30 minutes away.  They patiently stayed and cleaned the tile they had already installed while waiting for the additional tile.   These guys are the real deal.  If you are looking for an installer that cares about the work and appreciates the opportunity you have given them, you will not find a better installer to work with.  They will take the time to go over the project with you and answer any of your concerns with a politeness and patience that you don't see very often.  They will leave only when you are satisfied with the work they have done and leave with you feeling as if you have made a new friend.See more

Esteban did an excellent job with our house. The minute he came in for an initial assessment, he walked us through the whole house providing details on what needs to be fixed and how he plans to go about it before he starts the painting assignment. Once, he fixed everything he did a flawless painting job. We had painted multiple dark color samples on our walls which he had to prime and double coat over as an additional add on. He was very accommodating and worked with us to ensure we could get other projects done at the house and he diligently did touchups to the wall paint once those were over. He also painted our stair railings which had to be done twice since the paint got a little stained after the hard wood floors were stained. The best thing about Esteban was that when we did the walk through I told him about all the touchups and he took care of every one of them. I could not find a single wall in the house that was not perfectly painted once Esteban was done with his project. I would definitely recommend him not only for his painting expertise but the sheer diligence with which he does his work.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

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.
