Dan and the Celestial team did a thorough and outstanding job. They were engaged to complete a full home cleaning following the move-out of a tenant, including carpets, and in completing the project they: communicated quickly and effectively, arrived as scheduled, worked quickly but with care, and were pleasant and honest. Specifically, in the course of cleaning the back corners of some shelves, they found a rare collector coin. Although its the type of object that could so easily be pocketed and never noticed, they brought it to my attention, etc., in an honorable and honest way. Highly recommended.

This gentleman and his son came to move two large refrigerators for me. Had I hired someone else, I do not believe it would have been done as quickly and professionally. Robert Wright, the son, is a certified HVAC man and consummate professional. These new refrigerator doors, if have to be taken off, have computer wires that must be carefully disconnected and reinstalled. Mr. Manuel Wright, the owner, is a stickler for safe practices in the home, taping things down when moving delicates so that items in the home do not get damaged. They did a wonderful job and are coming back to be my handyman specialists.

Good communication, both by text and in-person assessing the job. Accurate estimate on time to complete project. Seemed knowledgeable and was very patient with all the questions I had. Cleaned up the work area after the project was complete. I plan to call Brownscapes again for other landscaping projects.

Marcelo did an outstanding job of repairing our leaking sprinkler system controls at a very reasonable price. It turned out there were more leaks than we were originally aware of, and Marcelo kept fixing each one as he came upon them. Marcelo kept his appointments promptly and was very dependable. I like that! I plan to use him for other handyman jobs at our home.

Arthur was very quick to respond and very helpful!!! I thought I had all of the parts for him to do a quick and easy tv mount and didn't, so he even offered to just go to Home Depot and get new parts to ensure the job was complete before he left. Thank you so much!

I had POWER remove 2 walls for me and install 2 outlets in my ceiling for my game room. First of all his price was better than 2 other contractors that gave estimates. Second he was right on time when he said he would be there to start the job. Last but not least I couldn't be happier with his work. It came out exactly how I wanted it and exactly how he said it would. He finished the job in 2 days and never changed his estimate once. I will be using his service for anything else I ever need done thank you Albert I really appreciate your work.

Jeff and his crew removed a garden style tub, and installed a walk-in bathtub. They were very professional, the work is guaranteed, and using Roadrunner Repairs saved almost 50% compared to what a local home design company wanted to charge for doing the project.

LET ME BE VERY CLEAR: MIKE NONIES IS THE BEST CONTRACTOR I'VE EVER HAD WORK FOR ME...YOU'D BE FOOLISH TO LOOK FURTHER AND NOT HIRE HIM. WHO AM I? I am an investor and doctor who lives in a very high end neighborhood in Albuquerque. I have had over 50 contractors work for me as I do investment real estate...in 3 states. I have very high standards and OVER 50% OF MY REVIEWS ARE CRITICAL/NEGATIVE. I'm HONEST and I try to help others get good results. WHY MIKE NONIES? 1. Mike is HIGHLY VERSATILE. I've found nothing that he can't do. He does concrete, plumbing, electrical, decks, carpentry, dry wall, stucco...everything. 2. Mike is HIGHLY....HIGHLY competent. You will get an outstanding result. 3. Mike is HIGHLY...HIGHLY ethical. He is honest about his hours, goes out of his way to err on the side of only charging you for time spent. 4. Mike is HIGHLY...HIGHLY independent and trustworthy. He got upset with me for being around the house too much and said I could feel free to do all my other tasks and he would not need supervision. He was RIGHT. He works completely independently, has great judgment, is creative and problem solves. He did NOT need ANY supervision 5. Mike is EASY GOING, NICE, KIND, GOOD TO BE AROUND. NO troubles. NO problems. Do you know what THAT is worth? 6. Mike takes INITIATIVE. If he sees something that will make the outcome better, he just does it without being asked. 7. Mike is PROUD of his work and makes sure you are SATISFIED. 8. Mike is a good PLANNER. He figures out easily what to start first and what to do next making sure the job is coordinated. 9. Mike does not get STUMPED. He problem solves. 10. I made a prior mistake and hired a completely unethical contractor to do a prior deck job. AWFUL result. Mike repaired the prior job, which I wasn't even sure could be done, and the result was terrific at a reasonable cost. 11. Mike's fee per hour (I did not use a bid) was MORE than fair. Not "cheap" but very reasonable. THIS GUY IS TERRIFIC. SNAP HIM UP. IF YOU CAN GET MIKE TO WORK FOR YOU, YOU WILL BE GETTING an EXTREMELY COMPETENT GUY AT A FAIR PRICE WHO WILL DO GREAT FINISH WORK AND WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE EASY. YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY DO BETTER. EVERYONE ELSE I'VE USED ON THUMBTACK HAD RISKS. NO RISKS HERE. WAIT IN LINE IF YOU HAVE TO. MIKE CAN USE ME FOR A REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE NEEDING TO ASK A SPECIFIC QUESTION, JUST CALL.

IET was very responsive and punctual on assessing the job and fixing the electrical problem we had from a previous electrical contractor. Not only did they address the issue at hand, but also found and fixed other issues we were experiencing. They also did some in-kind maintenance work on our building. We were very appreciative of their attentiveness and great work ethic. We would and have used them with other jobs. We highly recommend IET for any electrical work that needs to be done, either residential or business.

Damien and his helpers were very professional and did a great job at our home replacing damaged siding and patio roof trim! They replaced some 19 year old siding and roof trim that had been damaged by swamp cooler leak in less time than expected. RP did a great job in matching both siding and paint! Other contractors would not touch the job due to hard-to-find siding. RP's Finished job looks like new! They did the job within 4 work days of first contact with us. We are very pleased! Owen F.

Victor and his family came to my home and poured pride and quality in their craftsmanship. Now we have a unique and secure wall, built at an very fair price. The results of this project exceeded our expectations, and we would make the same decision to hire this contractor again. We encourage you to choose this company for your masonry needs, and we would be happy to provide any honest reference to any who inquire about our experience. Thank you for reading.

We hired Benavidez Construction to complete a bathroom remodel that our previous contractor didn`t finish. They finished in record time, with incredible attention to detail in the woodworking, tiling and paint finishes. We then hired him to re-do our staircase in gorgeous poplar wood which came out great, and also hired him to create a stunning fireplace in our kitchen covering up an old wood burning fireplace. The result is just beautiful. Very pleased with their work, will definitely use them for future projects.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
