As a contractor by trade I expect professionalism,honesty and quality when I hire someone to work at my home.Jimmy not only met all those qualifications but surpassed them.After receiving outrageous estimates from some of the major name garage door companies Suffield garage doors was next,after meeting Jimmy he was hired before he even gave me a price (which was extremely more reasonable)Jimmy was quick,clean and kept his word on the price,no surprises.I could not be happier with my new garage doors and the quality of work and service I received.Great overall experience and 5 stars for Suffield garage doors -Matt Fela

I contacted Matt and told him it was not an urgent issue but my shower drain was running slow. I told him if he could come out in the next week or two it would be nice, he was able to come out the next day and diagnose the drain issue and fix it. Had him look at other plumbing projects on the to do list. Would recommend.

First, I became very sick shortly after this job was completed and I completely spaced leaving a review until I logged back in nearly a year later to use this site for another job. My sincere apologies. The review I would have left is below. Contractor was great. Finished project quickly in spite of running into some unconventional construction in the wall that would have made it difficult for me or a less knowledgeable contractor to complete the job. He was friendly and communication ahead of the job date prevented any confusion. He let me know that if I had any issues with the work or if I would like the wires to be hidden within the wall, he would be happy to come back out and take care of it. Would absolutely hire again.

I accessed Thumbtack last week in search of a contractor that could replace the existing tile around my fireplace. My wife and I purchased some marble tiles a few weeks back to replace the existing tile with. We were struggling to find a contractor in our area that could complete the work with any level of confidence. The first few contractors we contacted were concerned about breaking the marble pieces while trying to cut them to fit the space. Thumbtack seemed like our last hope. After filling out the short questionnaire about the type of work that I was requesting, Rodney replied almost instantly. Not only did he reply, but he sent a very personalized response to me, addressing specific concerns about the job and even posing a few questions for me. Of course I replied right away and we were soon on the phone making plans for an in-home visit for an accurate quote. Rodney was very accommodating to my schedule. He offered to visit with me and my wife in the evening to give us his quote for the work. He was very friendly, very knowledgeable, and very polite. Rodney quoted us at a very competitive price - below most other quotes we had received. With a combination of his persone and his competitive price, we knew instantly that we wanted Rodney to complete this work for us. Rodney immediately made room for us in his busy schedule in order to complete the work "as soon as possible" as my original request stated. He quoted us on a Thursday night and started the work the next morning. I'm not sure that this is something that Rodney will always be able to do for his customers, but it was surely appreciated by my wife and I in this case. Rodney did a complete tear out and reinstallation project for my wife and over the course of three days. He completed the tear out and preparation on Friday, cut and placed all of the marble on the fireplace on Saturday, and finished grout and cleanup on Sunday. Rodney worked late into the day on Saturday, ensuring customer satisfaction and job completion by Sunday as originally planned. All the while, Rodney was very polite, very respectful of our time and space, and very tidy and thorough at the completion of the project. He made sure that there were no loose ends before leaving and ensured that my wife and I were happy with his work. He even offered to go above and beyond and complete further small services for us at no cost if we felt they were necessary to make the project more perfect than it already was. I would recommend Rodney to anyone in the Indy area that is looking for an efficient, knowledgeable, polite contractor that will surely get your job done the way YOU want it done. Rodney is not looking to rush through a job - he is working for his customers trust and a lasting relationship. He has certainly earned that with my wife and i. We've got several project ideas that we will be contacting Rodney about in the coming years. Thanks Rodney!

I highly recommend Safe Guard Renovations and its owner David Rogers, we have worked with many contractors over the years, but Dave and his team were without a doubt exceptional! All of his staff was courteous, knowledgeable and efficient, they answered questions and concerns we had and made adjustments at the last minute. As a small business owner ourselves, we know how difficult it is to keep great employee's, Safe Guard and Dave were great and we will be recommending them and using them for a long time. Ed Wolf

Dan was a pleasure to work with and his crew was very professional and courteous. They performed a complete tear off of 2 layers of shingles and installed the new roof in 2 days for my large ranch house. I would strongly recommend using Dan for your house construction projects because I know I will in the future. Jim

We had a major leak around our chimney. Between calling contractors and them not showing up to contractors not quoting we found Cleveland Local Handyman. He came out , diagnosed the problem and gave us a quote all in a timely manner. We accepted the proposal and the work was done! Very efficient and the workmanship was high quality. I love the fact that I could pay online with a credit card. Thanks "Alan Mack"

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.
