Cheryl M. says, "5 stars for INTEGRITY BUILDING and TED GRAY!! The reason I contacted INTEGRITY BUILDING was that a groundhog took a liking to my back yard, dug a tunnel under the deck along the foundation of the house which caused destruction. My husband and I didn't realize the damage until several patio pavers caved in. We tried unsuccessfully to trap the groundhog and decided to have skirting constructed around the base of the deck to box it in and prevent this from happening again. Through a friend, I contacted INTEGRITY BUILDING. TED GRAY quickly responded and scheduled an appointment to discuss our needs. After reviewing our design ideas, he offered suggestions, recommendations and showed us pictures of a similar project. He explained the building process and, within a week, began construction. TED GRAY was very professional, arrived daily at the scheduled time and his appearance was always neat. He paid close attention to the detail we envisioned and his craftsmanship was the highest quality. He set up his saws in our backyard and cleaned up the job site at the end of each day. He even tackled two additional projects for us while he was there. We will definitely hire TED GRAY and INTEGRITY BUILDING for future projects and will recommend them to family and friends. I can't thank them enough for the quality job they did."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the best waterproof flooring for a basement?

There are several great options for waterproof basement flooring. For example, epoxy floors are waterproof but are thicker and sturdier than paint. Make sure the concrete substrate has been prepared for application. 

Tile is a designer’s dream, giving you a moisture-resistant surface that’s infinitely customizable. Rubber sheets or tiles are also good waterproof options, particularly for playrooms, workout areas or laundry rooms. 

Vinyl tiles and planks imitate wood or other materials very convincingly, provide moisture resistance and last a long time. And sheet vinyl is affordable and a great waterproofing solution for those in need of quick fixes.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

Does a general contractor need to enter my home?

Provided the project is located inside your home, completing the job would require a general contractor to enter your home. But if your project is located outdoors, a general contractor will likely not need to enter your home. Discuss your options with general contractors in your area before hiring.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a general contractor when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a general contractor, avoid any physical contact, don’t shake hands, keep 6 feet of distance between you and the pro and sanitize all involved surfaces. Also, use digital platforms to communicate and make payments.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Les and his son Paul came in and framed/drywalled part of my basement, and it turned out beautiful. He even put a final prime coat in for me after sanding and mudding everything. His schedule was pretty flexible also.

It was a pleasure to work with Vlada. He was very up front, honest, and dependable. He was a tremendous value who was able to meet a very tough budget. He has an excellent eye for design and actually improved on some of our ideas and worked with some last minute changes and didn't go over the budget. He is very hard working and smart. We are already planning on using him for a basement remodel and another bathroom remodel in the next year.
