A-Academy responded quickly with fair pricing and a high level of knowledge to give me confidence needed they were right for the job. The quality of the work they provided was superb, and overall this was the best service appointment I’ve ever had to date. Vince and his crew made it very easy and gave me and my family the reassurance the pest problem would no longer be an issue for us in the future! Will definitely be working with them on some other projects and recommend to anyone needing reliable and affordable pest control.

I highly recommend Sewell to anyone in need of a handyman. Sewell was very flexible in terms of his availability. I had posted to Thumbtack that I was in need of a professional to delicately uninstall my TV mount on a Sunday morning and Sewell was able to make it to my apartment in a matter of hours (I had been told by others that Sundays were not available). Sewell showed his experience when he was able to complete the job quickly without causing any damage whatsoever. The thing that impressed me the most about Sewell however was how kind and professional he was. I would EASILY hire Sewell again for any projects or jobs that I have in the future. Oh and the fact that he was very fair with pricing was a bonus as well! :)

This is really more of a 4.5-star review :) We're first-time homeowners and hired Tom for a kitchen renovation and a few other small projects. We are really pleased with the results! Tom worked as quickly as possible and communicated well with us throughout the process over text and phone. In moments of frustration and delay (to be expected when coordinating with the town on permits and with subcontractors), Tom was even-keeled and worked with us to find fair solutions. His workmanship was good and he was quick to fix any/all small issues that we asked about. Tom was a reliable, personable, and his price was fair. We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for another project.

Everything went very well. Francisco showed up on-time. He was prepared to send me an electronic receipt, which appeared on my phone before he had even pulled away. I asked him to give me an estimate for another project!

Manny removed an interior wall which separated my living room and dining room. Very happy with the outcome. He is trustworthy (I was not home most of the time for the 3 day job), always on time (8:15am sharp), and his price was very reasonable. Will be sure to call him for my next project.

Very professional, he showed up when he said he would, he didn't promise to come out and take a look at the project and NOT show up like another contractor did! He completed the project in a timely manner and I will hire him for future projects. My next door neighbor already want to hire him. The before and after pictures show his workmanship. Great Job!

Peter helped fix two doors in my apartment, where they were not closing entirely. He came to do an estimate / review of the work and provided good input and insight in making a plan. The resulting work was good, also quiet and clear as Peter wound up cutting rather than sanding down the doors to make them close properly. He also nicely looked at some other issues with the stove and sink, which were a bit too much to handle on this project, without digging deeper into both of them. I found Peter to be knowledgeable beyond the work he did on this project, punctual, communicative, nice, and affordable. I'd hire him again!

I had a great experience with Corniel Construction. Waldy and his team remodeled my bathroom. New floor tile, new shower tile, new shower faucet, new toilet and new vanity. They did a great job having this done for me and their price was very reasonable. I was impressed with the communication of Waldy. He was very responsive, answered any questions I had and made sure I was informed throughout the job. They were clean and made sure the job was done right. I liked what they did so much I asked them to come back and replace my other toilet. Overall great experience and would use them agian.

I recently bought a house in Englewood NJ and hired Mura Constructions to do the renovations. They did an AMAZING job. The outcome of what is now a home turned out better than I expected it was as if he built it from scratch. Not to mention their cleanup crew. I mean these guys know how to make your place look spotless. I was so impressed by the work they that I am looking forward to my next project and working with them. I must commend them on a job well done!!! They most Advantage about having Mura Construction work on your project is that it is definitely a one stop shop. We stayed in budget and I did not have to hire anyone else. He came prepared and had the job done in a timely fashion. I would most definitely use and recommend Mura Construction for any project you need a hand with. Great Job Guys!!!!!!!

We hired Carlos and his team to remodel our newly purchased home. Carlos's team completed the work - that we'd agreed upon - within budget, time and beyond expectations. Carlos is an honest man, ingenious, accommodating and smart. If there is one thing that gets us to give his company 4 stars instead of 5, it is one of his project manager's attitude. We believe that every employee is representative of their company, and in our case, one of his PMs left a slightly bad taste in our mouth with his dishonesty (towards the end of the contracted work). Carlos, and the remainder of his team - I'd hire them again without missing a heartbeat.

I am absolutely ecstatic that Avi was the one to add a patio to our boring, bland, sloped bakcyard. His talent truly brought life to my backyard! He had wonderful suggestions, great communication and was extremely attentive to our taste to ensure things came out exactly how we wanted. We did not plan to do another project until next year but we were so pleased with his work that we're having him start constructing a path at the front of our home. His touch IS just that amazing. Thank you so much for your hard work and professionalism! It's been such a pleasure. Here are some before and after photo's of our yard.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.  

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 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.

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.
