Jeff remodeled a cottage for me. He was neat and efficient, and offered his best advice while allowing me to make the final decisions in all areas. Jeff is a craftsman who does the job right without cutting corners. He was pleasant and responsive throughout the project. The remodel of the cottage was so adorable, it sold without even going on the market! I would definitely use Jeff on my next project!

Steve has done multiple home improvements & renovations for us. He efficiently and cost effectively installed a new energy saving furnace & hot water heater which both had energy rebates. Steve suggested options for ceramic tile flooring he installed for us along with ideas and details that gave the project a clean, updated look. Steve is a polite and accomodating professional with experience in many areas of renovation. We would highly recommend him

    Starr22 did an excellent job renovating an apartment for me before the new tennant moved it. There was more work and less time than I anticipated. Starr22 was very accommodating to my requests. They were prompt, professional and efficient. The flooring they installed looks flawless. The countertops/fixtures were perfect as well. The paint job was impeccable. My new tennant was pleased, especially because it was all ready on time! These guys are great! I will definitely call them again and will probably have them do some work around my home as well.

    We had our first floor renovated with new ceilings and drywall, in addition to replacement windows and doors. Josh is probably one of the hardest workers we have ever hired into our home. He was accommodating in scheduling and put in long hours to ensure that the completion of our project was done in a timely manner. As he left our home each day, he was conscious about cleaning up so that our living was as uninterrupted as possible. As our project completion approached, Josh sought our feedback on every aspect of the project and returned several times to ensure that everything was completed to our satisfaction. Additionally, we appreciated his suggestions as we planned and fine tuned our project. He was able to provide insight into the design and finishes that enhanced the finished look of it. We highly recommend Josh's company and will definitely be seeking his service as future projects arise.

    Kevin is a master at carpentry. Upon receiving my request, Kevin came to give me a walk through of the process that would be needed to be done and gave me an accurate price to get the job done. He is extremely down to earth and will get you the best price possible. On top of this, he will try to put measures in place so that if the problem arises again, you will know how to fix it on the cheap. Will be consulting with Kevin for other carpentry jobs in the future.

    Dave did an excellent job on our master bath - I love it! He added so much functionality by removing a wall which allowed us to have two vanities. The shower is huge and the tile work is beautiful. We would definitely hire Finger Lakes Custom Renovations again.

        I believe our attention to detail is unsurpassed. We started out flipping houses. We would buy run down houses and totally renovate them, and then sell them. We knew we were the last to get paid and our pay was negotiable. It was determined by the quality of our work. Selling a vacant house is like looking in the mirror naked. You can't hide any flaws. Potential buyers would come through, and scrutinize our work. We needed them to fall in love with it. And then a professional home inspector would come through with a fine tooth comb. We always passed. Every time. I believe the reason was our attention to detail. I love helping folks create a custom living space. I enjoy the satisfaction of the finished project. I love how no two jobs are the same. Also, I have made great friends in this business, including clients, suppliers, other contractors.

        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.
