I didn't have an opportunity to use Jason's services, as the situation was resolved. However, we communicated on several occasions. He was attentive, responsive and more than fair with his pricing. I have included him in my arsenal of contractors and whenever the need arises, I plan to call Berry's Home Improvement.

Michael was great. I hired him for other home maintenance projects. Upon reviewing his profile realized he was an all around handy man as well . I hired someone else for the paint job. He was very accommodating to when i needed the projects completed as i was leaving town. He is now the person i will call for home maintenance projects for our rental home in New Jersey.

Greivin is a very reliable, honest and responsive contractor who did a great job at repainting our house. I offered him the job after he submitted the best bid among 4 contractors to paint my 1340 sq feet house in Hoboken. My walls were painted in dark colors with different rooms having different colors and we were shifting to all white - he did a great job that needed four coats and also agreed to repair our wooden floor in a small corner for no extra cost. He has done a great and timely job - in a condo building, he did the job with no disturbance to neighbors. Highly recommended.

PROJECT: Remove and install an exterior door. Darin came to my home a few months ago to evaluate a project I listed on Thumbtack. He provided a quote in writing within hours of meeting us. He was one of a few contractors that presented a written contract that detailed the work he proposed. He arrived at each of our three meetings on time. He completed the job tasked efficiently and left the work space clean and clear. His work was excellent!!! My husband and I would hire HBR again...in a heartbeat!

Multiple electrical jobs completed both indoor and outdoor for old and new construction for both my moms residence and mine. Response time was same day and appointments were fulfilled in less than a week. All jobs were successfully completed and there was never a need to return to fix any jobs we paid for. Also, when new electrical issues arose I was able to reach out for advisement. Prices were fair and competitive and service was high quality. All repairs were explained in lamens terms for easy understanding of problems and remedies. I have high standards with who I hire because there are a lot of scammers and low quality electricians and I don't like to pay twice. I would recommend this electrician to anyone and trust his work and feel safe having him handle all the electrical work for my home and my families homes. Cheaping out on electrical work means you pay later ....

My experience with contractors, including this company, is that you have to have patience. When a job has multiple areas of concentration (electrical, plumbing, carpentry, etc.), there may be different people doing each service; which means that everything is dependent upon each person doing their service in a timely manner, otherwise possible delays. Also, most contractors have multiple job sites where their people are rotated where needed. Since no one can predict a problem will occur, this also causes delays in getting a project completed. All of this is the nature of the job. As I mentioned before, try to have patience. Renovation projects can be frustrating and sometimes upsetting; but if everything is done correctly with minimal errors, the most important thing is that you are happy with the skills provided and the quality of the work completed.

The job involved staining the deck, screwing in loose boards, and fixing two hand rails of a stairway of a deck that is roughly 980 square feet. I had also asked for the replacement of a crumbling sidewalk- roughly 175 square feet. Thomas Fredrick was fantastic. He was prompt in arriving to give the quote and pitching the price- which was very reasonable given the size of the job. He and his crew were prompt in arriving and quickly finished the deck in two days. The concrete work also took about two days- between the removal of all of the old concrete and pouring in the new foundation. All of my expectations were exceeded (which is rare for me), given the size of the job. Tom also took on the repair of one fence panel piece & replacement of a mailbox that had a broken cover. Any questions/requests that I had were quickly addressed (which rarely happens with some contractors). I am extremely satisfied and would consider TNS for future jobs and would highly recommend them to others in the area.

The job could not have gone more perfect. My contractor cancelled last minute for a job that needed to be done before Christmas as it was a gift. I hired Al over the phone as I was desperate and he came over right away. I was extremely nervous and worried he may try and over charge due to the circumstances and my need for immediate assistance. He had no reviews for me to read and I have had a few bad experiences with contractors in the past. Al was polite, clean, neat and treated my home as if it was his own sweeping and vacuuming as he went along. I was only planning on having him do the hard labor and I was going to finish the rest on my own. Al was a very pleasant find and I will be referring him to anyone I know who needs a contractor. He did not over charge and went above and beyond to help finish the entire job for me.

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!

Alex was hired to paint two bedrooms in my home and to perform other repairs. Out of all the contractors I spoke to, Alex had the most competitive pricing. He gave wonderful tips on what kind of finish on the paint I would need for the job as well as how much paint would be needed. His advice was spot on. The work he did was impeccable and the job was complete in a matter of hours. There was no mess for me to clean up and the walls look amazing. Jobe well done. Will definitely be using his services again in the future.

Manny was extremely professional, he took the time to really explain to me what the issue was and the best and most cost effective way to resolve it. In addition to that he was very respectful of my tenants property and time. Thank you Manny for providing such great service, I really appreciate you coming to my property and taking care of the frozen pipe on my tenants apartment. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family for all their plumbing needs. Thanks again and take care!

David and his Company have been helping me on various projects for over a year now. I was fortunate to find them through thumbtack. I was in dire need. I had realized a water stain forming in the bathroom ceiling of my shore rental on a Sunday afternoon only two hours before having to head back to Boston and I was scheduled to have house guests in 4 days. Who was I going to find in 2 hours notice on a Sunday afternoon to come help me? Like a miracle David responded within seconds of me posting on thumbtack. I explained the issue and my time constraint and he said, "I'll be right over." As soon as we met in person I knew this was the type of honest professional contractor that I could trust (hard to find! I own two rental properties.. believe me). David assessed the situation and told me not to worry. He would send me a detailed quote of what was needed by later that night and that I could rest assured the work would be done for my guests in time. I was able to trust him with my house keys and everything went smoothly. He left the place in excellent condition and stuck to his word on his quote. Since that instance I actually stopped using another contractor that I often used and starting contacting David. Over the last year he's run to my rescue several times and more recently accomplished yet another successful job for us. David is honest, reliable, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. He goes out of his way all the time. There's no way I could possibly manage renting a property in NJ while living in Boston if I didn't have someone like David to help me out!

Ndue from Kolecki Construction met me at an apartment that I wanted to buy to look at the electric, which needed to be upgraded. I didn’t end up buying the apartment or hire Ndue, but I was impressed by his responsiveness and knowledge. He met me at the building and was right on time. Buying real estate in New York is an imposing process, especially when you need to hire a contractor and don’t know where to begin. Ndue invited me to buildings where his team was working and where walls were open so that I see what they do. I still don’t have an apartment, but I’ll call him if that day comes.

I wanted to recreate the feeling of relaxation, calmness and fun that I get when I visit the rivers and beaches of my home country of Trinidad. Don and his team masterfully recreated that feeling with executing the design of my two bathrooms! It is very difficult to find contractors that are not only excellent at what they do but also trust worthy and respect your home. I was able to give them keys to my home, and go to work feeling confident that my home was in safe hands. Thank you to Don and his team for giving me my own little river and beach mini getaways right here in hectic NYC!

I hired ER Fine Homes for a large painting project for the interior of my home. It was a great pleasure working with the owner Dan and I felt it necessary to take time to write this review because of his outstanding work. Dan is a true pleasure to work with because he is not only professional but he always promptly replies to your communication and carefully listens to your needs and or any concerns. Antonio, his painting supervisor, and the team of painters came to my home everyday for over 3 weeks and they were always on time, courteous, neat, respectful and did fantastic work with great attention to detail. I am so pleased with the work completed by ER Fine Homes we have already decided to hire them again for several additional upcoming general contracting projects. I would highly recommend this company-you will love them!!

I would consider Ricky a great, courteous, kind and respectful contractor, so much so that I’m already planning out for another project. He nor is coworker were in the least bit lazy, and they continued to work through the day with a nice level of energy and pace. All the work was completed with the utmost care and with consideration. Without hesitation 5 stars.

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.

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.

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.

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.
