Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. 

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.

We had a flood in our basement and had to work with our insurance for Payment. Bill began the work immediately even while we waited in insurance and remodeled our basement, he even built a new wall!! Beautiful work. I am so very happy with the results and already thinking about what I want him to do next!!

Our project with Christopher & Company went very smoothly, and completely met our expectations. Chris was easy to deal with, and up front about cost - and was much more reasonably priced compared to other quotes we got. Patrick handled building our walk-in closet, and creating our basement bathroom from scratch. He was thoughtful, always discussed exactly what was going on, and asked us about different options before he moved forward. I would highly recommend - and will surely use them again in the future!

This contractor was AMAZING!!! She came up with the design and monitored the progress every step of the way. The team was very professional and easy to deal with. I would contact Taria day and night with silly questions about the project and she was always prompt and polite when responding. The finished product is STUNNING. She renovated my basement to create a master suite, a large walk-in closet with the most beautiful bathroom inside. Barn doors, waterfall faucets and marble tile, oh my! I’m in love with my new space and I’ll be calling this team very soon for additional home projects. THANK YOU Tailored Development!!! :)
