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.

Walter came in as a last minute save the day contractor. He is a general contractor licensed and insured and came to fix mistakes of another contractor and fix my faucets install. He ended up doing an amazing job and added a sealer to my carrera marble vanity. I am using him again for my next project. He does what he says he will, sticks to price and exceeds expectations. NICE GUY overall. Don't look further!

Matt was great! I have been waiting on the contractor to repair my roof. Meanwhile needed to tarp it (since hiring the contractor tiles were stripped of the roof -while waiting for them to come) Matt came and tarped the roof even in the pouring rain (I felt terrible) . He even advised me of the roofs condition saying it was it good condition dispite the missing tiles and to let the contractors know I knew the there would be no Plywood repairs needed(they [contractors] were already trying to sell me plywood!). I can sleep tonight knowing no rain will come in while waiting on the contractor (I wish they were as communicative and fast as Matt was.)

I requested a quote for repairs to a fence that had been damaged a few months earlier when a tree fell on it. Brian responded almost immediately with a preliminary quote and set up a time to come to the property for a visual inspection. He did a good job keeping me up to date on when the special-order materials were due to arrive and letting me know when my job would be done. He was prompt, helpful in his suggestions, friendly and true to his word. This small job was dismissed by several contractors previously – they would come to inspect the property and waste my time because I would never hear from them again after they left promising they would be back with a quote. Small business owners these days seem to have their pick of jobs because most treat homeowners with small jobs as if we’re bothering them. I have a more significant project I would like done in the next year or so and have now asked Brian for a quote on that. It’s as if most of them don’t realize small jobs done well lead to customer loyalty and a good working relationship the homeowner is happy to continue with for years to come. I would recommend Fratturo Home Remodeling without reservation.

I owned three homes in fifty years and used many contractors for various projects both big and small. Mauricio Franklin of Mike Eisner Restoration was one of the best contractors, if not the best, I ever used. In addition to the above highlighted qualities, he and his workers were extremely courteous and polite. It was pleasant having them work in my house.

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.

Joe exceeded my expectations by going above and beyond the original scope of services to remedy several new issues that came about during this phase of my new home's landscaping project. His can do attitude served me well as he completed several jobs in a timely manner ultimately ensuring that the next phase of the landscaping project would move forward as scheduled with no delays. I would highly recommend him as he meets clients deadlines, provides fair/reasonable pricing and works well with other onsite trades. He is now my go to contractor for site work requiring earth moving equipment like excavators & skid steers.

Excellent experience! Needed someone right away and everyone wanted to see the job first which puts me in a tough position since if I'm not happy with the price, I need to get someone else and wait till they can come. He gave me a flat price for the day and brought someone else like I asked. My contractor in business for 15 years was blown away how much they accomplished at such a reasonable price. They were also clean, and punctual. I needed to start a bit late and they worked around me without even mentioning they were there late. Although it was a Demo job and I paid for the day, they wouldn't leave until the place was broomed clean.

As a military family managing a rental property in New York while stationed in another state, it can be extremely stressful and inconvenient when things go wrong. Last winter (2015), we found that out first hand, when we had a pipe freeze while our tenants were on vacation. The resulting flooding and water damage required us to completely remodel our kitchen, upstairs bathroom, family room and basement. We turned to KW Building and Remodeling for the job and could not be more pleased with the result. Not only did they work with our insurance company for us, they managed the entire project from start to finish while we remained out of state. They stayed in constant communication with us and made us feel at ease as they restored the home we hope to one day retire to. Knowing what was happening every step of the way (including photo updates) was invaluable to us and we can't thank KW enough for their willingness to stay in touch at all times. The experience was positive for reasons far beyond the communication aspect, however. The work done by KW Building and Remodeling was top-notch and the sub-contractors they brought in for tile work were equally great. We have since recommended their company to several family members and friends and will continue to do so. For a stress-free, high-quality experience, you can't go wrong with KW Building and Remodeling. Thank you Karl for all you did for us!

I followed up on your recommendation of Webster Home Improvements. Beginning with Jane, in the office, my experience with this company was overwhelmingly positive. Practicality dictated our decision, and we ended up hiring another contractor. But it is certainly not any reflection Webster Home Improvements. I know that this is a very different sort of review than you usually receive but I feel that Brien of Webster Home Improvements deserves all the kudos for going above and beyond in his effort to please us. Sincerely, A Very Satisfied Customer, Laurie

I had explored many different contractors that were referred and I found through various search engines. I decided on Michael because he had so many photos and he was in a lot of them working. Michael made sure we both understood each other in regards to my composite deck project. Upon delivery of materials, he was here, and had Hime Depot resolve a problem within hours. Although the weather was blistering hot he did not reschedule. He utilized shade from a tree and placed a canopy over the work area. He was meticulous, used time well, and left my yard clean of building debris. I have already passed his number along! Thank you, Michael :-)

You will never find another contractor like this. He will go the extra mile to get the job done or in my case extra 10 miles. Ali is excellent at his job and very fair in his pricing. If you need a contractor, look no further

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.

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.
