After enduring several months of frustration, inconveniences, and outright deceptions, it was a welcomed relief to find a thorough, professional and very helpful team of contractors who did everything asked with the attitude that gave my family the restored confidence in home improvement service.

We contacted Global Housing with a painting project of our 2 floor home. In addition to the walls and ceilings, the painting project included various types of stubborn wood trim\moldings and doors that were previously stained. Additionally, making the project a bit more challenging was that we were already moved into the home with our furnishings and had new wood flooring previously installed. James was very responsive from the initial contact and throughout the project. Anytime there was a concern raised by us he quickly responded and handled the concern with ease. The painters themselves were extremely polite and professional. They were careful with covering the flooring and furnishings and really went above and beyond with the quality of the work and even in recommendations. Upon the completion of the project, James reassured us and encouraged us to not hesitate to contact him should we see something that we were not happy with or if something was inadvertently overlooked. We would wholeheartedly recommend Global Housing Contractors and would work with them again without hesitation. Mr. & Mrs. Rios Roselle, NJ

Good quality work - very conscientious tradesmen. They did not hesitate to do over anything I asked them to and when rain had affected the stain on the deck, they re-painted the whole deck. It all looks great. I will use them again.

Brian's restored our broken antique rocking chair to its original condition for less than half of his repair estimate. He also fixed a variety of small (yet annoying) issues in the apartment which other carpenters were unable to fix. Has enthusiam for his work, a wide range of skills and a gentle manner. There's no categorical rating that would be high enough to encapsulate the quality of his work, or the pleasure and ease of working with him.

We had a very good experience with Rick and Manuel and their team. Our project was a whole bath complete reno/remodel and a half bath retiling/new fixtures, with 2 sliding doors to replace the former doors. They were so accommodating and helped us achieve everything we were looking for (including switching out the doors which was probably a very tricky task given the layout of the rooms). Rick was realistic with a timeframe and also helped us get everything done before we needed it to be, even when I decided I wanted to change something last minute. Bottom line is that I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for projects big and small. If we ever decide to do more home improvements it will certainly be with them. Photos don't even begin to do it justice (sorry for low-res phone pics!).

We hired Mura Construction and Maintenance for our renovations. As first time home buyers, taking on a huge renovation project, we were very nervous. However, Carlos and Lewis did not only put us at ease but also made this experience fun! They are honest, timely, trustworthy and have excellent foresight of what may be needed in future. We have found our renvo guys!!! Thanks Mura Construction. (Lewis and Carlos)

I hired Cesar and the team for overhauling our condo in Miami Beach. The rooms needed a drastic upgrade. I highly recommend Cesar because he had such a good eye for detail and he was always coming up with ideas and new insights which resulted in the perfect look and feel.

Tom is one of the best painters I have ever seen. Tom's professionalism and cleanliness is only overshadowed by his courteous demeanor. Based on the scale of the job I was expecting 2 weeks maybe more, Tom finished the job in just under one week. There is little to no doubt that I will be hiring Tom to tackle other projects around my home.

It's been a pleasure to work with Nick and his crew. We needed major exterior work done, new siding, roof repairs and more random work. I have worked with a lot of contractors, and so far Nick’s crew have been impressive. They have the experience and knowledge to give us good recommendations and helped us to save money by reducing the scope of unnecessary work. Their fee are also reasonable, we would have spent much more if not for their experienced inputs. Thank you, guys! Will definitely hire them again.

Angelika worked on a residential project for me at my home on Fifth Avenue in New York City, in which she led the project management for a complex apartment remodeling. She worked very effectively with the general contractor and various subcontractors, and did an excellent job with all aspects of the renovation, including the design work at the onset. She coordinated the work of various contractors and artisans, some of whom were not very cooperative. Angelika helped bring the project to conclusion in a timely manner, interacted very effectively with all of the subs, and ensured that the job got done on budget and on a reasonable schedule. Perhaps most importantly, she brought her creative skills to the project and made the renovation beautiful. Harvey B

I was referred to Justin at C & G Builders by my Realtor when I purchased my home. Originally it was just going to be a bathroom renovation, but after a short while I realized Justin and his crew were great to work with and were doing a great job. So I expanded the project to the kitchen and 2 other bathrooms. The crew never missed a day and was always there before I left for work. Everything came out great and I will definitely use Justin again.

I would like to highly recommend the general contractor who handled my townhouse’s third remodeling and renovation project, Mr. Mario Bissessar, owner and principal of City Line Interiors, Inc. The job project went extremely smoothly and was completed in a highly professional, efficient manner; I am very pleased with both the process and the beautiful results. The project was multi-faceted, complicated -as any remodeling entails- including a lot of details, involving multiple building sectors such as plumbing, electrical, HVAC, windows, tiling and paintings, metal work, having to respect landmark rules and blending with the existing structure. The crew led by Mario was very cohesive, punctual, talented, productive, flexible and friendly. His team is fluent in English (with a variety of charming Caribbean accents). Mario is very responsive, an excellent communicator and a great team leader. He was there every day, not only overseeing the work but very much hands-on, with precious skills, including carpentry. Mario also contributed great design ideas and judicious trouble-shooting solutions. Of course, I made several last minute changes or additions, which inflated the original budget but the corresponding charges were well itemized, justified and very reasonable. The payment schedule was without surprises and always well timed. It does not hurt that Mario is also an IT wizard…. All his subcontractors (electricity, plumbing, HVAC and metal work) were fantastic: they delivered diligently on the promised dates. It makes a big difference when subcontractors are well coordinated; they obviously knew and respected each other well, and were happy to work with Mario Bissessar.

Regal completed the renovation of my bathroom. I truly love the layout. It turned out better than expected. The workers were always professional. I got estimates from four different companies and Regal provided the best value. I am so pleased with the outcome that I would not hesitate to refer Regal to my friends.

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 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 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.

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.

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.
