I needed to have outside water turned on. The men found the faucet quickly and my problem was solved. For a quick "repair" it was exorbitant. It cost $95.00.

I am giving Varian an outstanding rating because he successfully resolved an difficult emergency situation despite some confusion in the process. He re-installed 2 very large heavy window air conditioners [24,000BTU and 18,000 BTU] I had in winter storage on a hot day when my regular installer defaulted. Somehow he was not aware at first that he would need a helper but while waiting he helped me with sealing up some other window frames in the apartment. He was cooperative and professional. He reinstalled the AC's in accordance with some of my particular requirements. The job cost more than I expected but was worth it. Next time I will make sure the service guy gets the job description from Thumbtack.

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.

Walter Lopez is a pleasure to work with. From helping with design ideas to working long days until the job was done, he is always prepared to keep going once he begins a job. AndI must add that he is the only contractor I have ever hired who has willingly returned to redo work that needed to be redone without making me wait, and after having already been paid in full. This is very rare! I have since then hired Walter to do additional work on my property, and will continue to do so, and will recommend him to others whenever I can. He not only has good ideas, but he knows how to execute them, and knows how to keep costs close to his estimates. He is a man of his word and I recommend him highly.

I want to thank Darin Sliker for all of the help he provided for me and my mother. I live in the state of Va. and my mother lived in N.J. I had been trying to secure a contractor for repairs that were needed in her tenants bathroom. My mother is 85 yrs. young and needless to say she did not know who to contact for this job. So after trying several contractors, a cousin of mine suggested I go online to "Thumbtacks.com and the rest is history! Darin was very friendly, helpful and very informative. He didn't mind me calling, texting or emailing him at any time. That meant so much considering I live out of state. The work that was done to the bathroom was great and I will always be grateful to Darin and those who worked with him on this project!

Konstantinos painted my entire two-bedroom apartment in two days time! I was deeply impressed with his professionalism, efficiency and low cost. Konstantinos went above and beyond to make certain I was happy throughout the entire process. The quality of his work is impeccable. He is passionate about doing the job right and I am thrilled with the results. My home looks amazing thanks to his hard work and dedication to my happiness. I highly recommend NY Quality Painting to anyone who wants a great deal with superior service.

James remodeled the kitchen, flooring and interior painting. His knowledge and professionalism is exceptional. He is very detail oriented. He went out of his way to recommend few things like missing exhaust in our kitchen. When you seek any suggestions, he doesnt treat it as a way to make more money and instead suggest us what is doable. Many other contractors were reluctant to install an island in kitchen but James is never hesitant to try out something that we requests for. He would be the go person for any of our remodeling needs. If any suggestions to improve, I’d suggest to have frequent discussions with the client on site in person (sometimes text communications make it tough) and you’d be outstanding in your profession. I highly recommend James to any of your construction or remodeling needs.

Tom and his team are top-notch professionals with high standards and impeccable integrity. He has respect for your time, your home and the project costs. He did a complete gut renovation of my kitchen, refinished floors in my living area and floor installation in my master bedroom, which was on-time and within my budget. In fact, I decided to hire him to do two bathroom renovations, door installations and stair redesign. He is patient, knowledgeable and an excellent communicator throughout the various projects. His work speaks for itself.

9we were very impressed with Nertil when he came to give us our estimate.He was right on time, met our cat and dog, and told us exactly what would be needed to complete the job. We decided to use London Construction that same day. We made an appointment for 11/16. Nertill and his assistant arrived promptly and set to work. They completed the job quickly and professionally. Before he left, Nertil instructed me on the initial maintenance of our new tile flooring. Not only did the two of them clean up thoroughly, but the pyramid also swept our front steps. I intend to work with London again in the near future.

We have lived in our house for over 25 years and had many contractors and our experience with Zsolt (George) was probably the best that we've had yet. His quote was significantly lower than all other quotes for the tile work that he did for us and he offered a few additional services for very little additional cost, including painting. He freshened paint on walls and a ceiling that we did not even include in the quote. He was great to talk to and I think we'll actually miss having him around. Big thumbs up.

While I did not engage NY Home Renovation for my project, I was highly satisfied by Ty’s responsiveness and attention to my matter. He came out to provide an estimate very quickly and his prices beat every other contractor. He answered every one of my phone calls and was flexible in making changes to the estimate. My insurance company pressured me into using their provider but I would hire Ty for my next home renovation project.

First of all Galaxy 1 home improvement were excellent!! I had a bad experience with a contractor in the past and I was looking for someone to do my kitchen but hesitate with the contractors I got an estimate from. Either their price was not what I could afford or their paperwork was not correct for what the coop wanted. Mr. Gary Singh was pleasant, respectful & professional from the first time we met and had all correct paperwork. Mr. Gary kept good on what he plan to do with my kitchen & the rest of my place. Him and the guys that worked on my place are trustworthy,respectful and professional. I recommend him and his crew 100%.

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.  

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

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 I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

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.
