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.

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.

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!

Sewell Peckham has an unique style when dealing with customers. He is considerate, passionate, neat and professional. He is open and honest about the project. There were no hidden fees and the job is beautifully done. I plan to have this company return to my home to complete additional projects in the next week or so. This gentlemen is honest and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a finished and impeccable project.

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.

Hired Brian to mount a tv and take care of some random home improvement/handyman stuff in our new apartment. He has been fantastic. He helped me figure out the best installation system for the tv, the work itself has been excellent, and it’s really nice having someone who’s friendly and able to help with pretty much whatever.

We had a great experience with Rich and Service Resource and Restoration! We moved into our new home and ran into some problems with our drop ceiling. My husband and I wanted to remove the drop ceiling and replace it with dry wall. When Rich came for the estimate, he offered great advice and was extremely helpful! He also helped us out with 2 other projects in our home. He was able to complete all 3 projects quickly and efficiently!

I reviewed proposals from four painting companies before deciding on ER Fine Homes. Dan' quote was quite competitive and he was very professional as well as being very easy to speak with, communicate with onsite or on the phone/text. His team was very professional and very meticulous with my full house exterior painting job. One side of my exterior was problematic, due to the nature of the cedar used and how it was installed when the house was originally built. The team worked tirelessly to address all those issues on that side to ensure the final effect was perfect...and it was. I could not be more pleased with this work and this company. Don't think twice, give them a chance, at least get a quote from Dan. But if you engage with them, my bet is you will be very happy. Good luck!

We had just purchased our first home st the time of using At Home Improvements and the ceilings throughout the first floor were all patched and popcorned. Stephen and his team removed the ceilings and replaced it all with fresh sheet rock and installed recessed lighting throughout with dimmers. They did the job within the estimated timeframe with no surprises. A++ service

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.
