Absolutely amazing! I would hire Glenn over and over! Hired him to haul away a bunch of junk left over from the sellers of our house and a former tenant. Originally he figured he wouldn’t be here until later in the day but then showed up much earlier! Fully communicated with me along the way and was super professional. What a great service and attitude! Would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Zeev was a very nice guy to work with. I had him install a light and dimmer switch in my living room and all turned out good. I'll most likely be bringing him back to the house for future projects.

Chris was personable and helpful in every way possible. He even charged us less than the quote b/c the job didn't require as much as anticipated. I will be reaching out to him again soon for additional work at our house. Hire Chris!

Contractors come to do something of what are you asking, take money and leave. Not John. He build- I don’t like he rebuilt. I would ask him to buil one think, he say I’ll build you on the better way . His guys would spend hour over one board, just to make it perfect. If I wanted something differently, John would do it with a smile. Never attitude. John and the boys were building my house as his own, ten times better then what I have imagined. John, I will never call another contractor in my life! Thank you, Your most difficult client ever

Keenie was great! Extremely friendly, helpful, and got the job done for the lowest price possible. I've had no problems with my sink since and look forward to hiring him for other jobs around the house. He also offered me advice on other projects while he was here that proved invaluable to this first time home-buyer. Thanks Keenie!

We bought a house with landscaping that was a bit beyond us to maintain. It got away from us, but now it's back to beautiful. Awesome job doesn't even begin to cover it and we've hired them for a bi-weekly service to keep it up :)

Brien gave an estimate to install a front door to house. Brien communicated very effectively of what the cost could be based on what I had told him. He come out the next morning to see the door in person to give a more accurate estimated and time needed. We gave him the go ahead to do the job. He stayed and did the job right away and was done within the time limit he had estimated. Very knowledgeable with the work that was needed. I would recommend Brien again for any project/job that is needed. We had no issues of any kind. Jason

I am giving Eric 5 stars for an exterior house painting job. My house was built in 1948 with lots of detail and issues that needed repair and attention. His bid was not the lowest, but he was the most knowledgeable. He has an excellent eye for the smallest detail and addressed them all, even some dry rot. He has good general knowledge of general contracting in addition to wonderful painting skills. He was on the job every day and his helpers were excellent. I am completely happy with Eric's job. The house looks great and everything was well cleaned up. Yup...5 stars!

Lino did an excellent job of cleaning up and preparing my rental house for occupancy after it was vacated without being properly cleaned or cared for. He did major cleaning in the kitchen, painting and wall touch-up in the living room, minor cupboard and storm window repair; and cleaning of gutters and debris left behind by previous tenants. He came to the job exactly at the time promised, worked diligently, and completed the work on time. He asked me about a couple of things I had overlooked--and agreed to take care of them. I was completely satisfied with the quality, time required, and cost of the work Lino completed. I will definitely use him again and have no reservations in commending him for the good work he did on my house.

Miguel Hernandez has done a tremendous amount of work for Lents Baptist Church. We still own the parsonage in the expectation that we would someday use it for church activities. The day has not come. In the interim we rent the house out. The house is a four bedroom two bath house. The last renter caused a lot of damage to the house. Miguel was right there to take on the responsibility and work of repairing the house. He washed all the walls, ceilings and floors. He repaired holes in the walls. Then he primed the walls and ceilings. Then he painted them. The floors in the main living areas are hardwood and he sanded, stained and sealed the floors. He laid tile in the bathrooms, kitchen and dining room. He replaced all the interior doors and the front door. New trim was installed between the walls and floor. We had water damage in the entry way to the church. Miguel repaired the walls and then painted the area. All his work was very good.

The contractor did not have a portfolio of past similar projects nor did he provide references I could contact. We finally came to an agreement as to how he would build my fence. His company contract was rather vague so I wrote out a more detailed one that he and I signed. It listed the specific points about the project that I felt were important, i.e. type of wood to use, heights, design, cleanup, etc. The contractor and crew were very cooperative during the construction. Whenever there were questions about how I wanted things to be done, we referred to my contract. I needed to leave town on the last day of their work. Since the work had gone well up to that point, I paid the contractor off and left him to finish up his work. When I returned a week later I was surprised to see that several of the details noted in my contract had not been completed. It has been three weeks since then and he has not returned to complete the small details nor to do a final review of his project. I can only guess that he felt rushed to complete my project and has been too busy to follow up. I will complete the final detail work myself. I have noticed that some of the fence wood has loosened up due to inadequate nailing. This was obviously done to reduce construction expense on the contractor's end. I have gone back and reinforced the wood with heavier screws. The fence is sturdier now. I would rate this contractor as a "good" builder, just not a "master" builder, due to the lack of detail work and lack of followup on the contract.

Gavin and his group have done a wonderful job. We are getting our house ready to sell and had quite a list of projects to be done. Much to my surprise and delight he has been able to complete nearly everything on the list. I will definitely use him for future projects.

    We love our new deck. Chris phill and crew did quality work at a reasonable price. They also found moisture ant damage on the side of our house when they removed our old poorly constructed deck and repaired all for a reasonable price. Great company! We will be using A&E construction to replace our side deck when we are ready to replace it.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
