When you feel comfortable enough to immediately start cracking jokes and trading stories with your contractor you know it's going to be a great experience. Glenn is easy going, knowledgeable, trustworthy and an all around friendly guy. He completed my work needed and went above and beyond the call of duty. I would definitely recommend Glenn for any of your future project needs!

I've worked with a dozen contractors over the last year on an extensive home remodel and the best experience I've had, by far, has been with Zeev. His motivation is 100% to create a finished product that I will be proud of and he did so in the process of executing an extremely complex electrical plan. I could not recommend Zeev highly enough.

I would like to thank A&C contractors for helping me fix the mess and unfinished work left behind by Portland Pacific Construction. They were willing to work within my means and provide honest communication as to what could be accomplished within a limited budget. The were also willing to try to complete the work in a timely manor and maintain good communication through out the renovation to ensure that work was completed to satisfaction. I would highly recommend A&C contractors for any home owner who has need of help on their home projects.

Tim is excellent! And he did a fantastic job! We have worked with him before (this is our third time), recommend him to friends and family, and will definitely work with him again. Way back in 2013 we did a full home remodel and those contractors did a dreadful job on the walls. The texture was huge and gloppy, out of character with our 1945 home, and just poorly done. I'd been giving it the evil eye for years, but assumed it was cost prohibitive to fix. In comes Tim to save the day! He primed the terrible textured walls of our entire living area: Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Room, Hallway, and Bathroom. Then he did three coats of smooth skim coat to get rid of the terrible texture. Then we had him prime and paint the finished product. I can't even tell you how beautiful it looks!! We are SO grateful to finally have clean, consistently textured, beautiful walls. It seems like a small thing, but it makes all the difference feeling comfortable in our house. In the midst of planning this project, we also had a plumbing issue in the basement that required some drywall repair. Tim made it happen without a second thought.

Logan by far is one of the most honest, conscientious contractors I have ever worked with. All his positive reviews are true!!! My boat steel cover enclosure was damaged due to heavy winds near the gorge and I decided to has something custom made. Logan came out the very next day to look at the project. He knew exactly what I was looking for to protect my boat. We had an issue with the fence gate needing to be removed and made wider... and Logan is modifying the gate for me as well. The very next day Logan ordered the materials at Home Depot, and two days later my project was on its way. I work out of town during the week, so I entrusted Logan to do what he thought was best. He updated me with photos everyday, and when I came home today to see the project... it was beyond my expectations. Being a dentist, attention to details are very important to me... and logan's craftsmanship is superior. His rate was very competitive, and very fare, but most importantly.... his honesty and integrity the first day he came to look at my project ..... shows in the finished project. I was so impressed, that Logan will be building my son's custom tree house in the future !!! Great Job Logan!!!! Joe

Kevin was first to give us a quote for the lawn replacement job I had described. As he walked the property, he also told me about the other home maintenance services he offers, which include power washing. So I asked him to include that in his price with the sod project. The price was quite reasonable. I was put off a bit that he asked for 75% up front; but I realized that he needed to purchase the materials, as well as pay his helper. Kevin explained the sodding project in detail, answered all my questions and gave us instructions for care after the sod was in place. Since the job was done only a few days ago, I don't know how it will turn out; but it looks terrific right now! I'd certainly recommend All Seasons - Kevin was on time and actually finished both jobs in 2 days, rather than the 3 we had allotted. He was also very accommodating when it came to the other workers we had on-site at the same time. Thanks again, Kevin!

We used Eric and his team for an almost 2.5 month project after moving back into our old house that was rented out for several years. Initially we were only going to use them for external and internal painting and cabinet refinishing, but we quickly found that we liked working with them and appreciated Eric's commitment, his obvious knowledge and attention to detail which led to us hiring them to replace our flooring and other various projects around the house from the shower door installation, carpentry work to smaller electrical work. We lived in the house while Eric's team did the work, which can get pretty overwhelming. They communicated well, respected our privacy and worked with kids nap times, weekend trips, etc. I can honestly say that I could not imagine this project going any better considering the circumstances. We were satisfied with the final product and we found the pricing to be reasonable. We found especially the painting job to be top notch, this is definitely their specialty. Eric also wrapped some beams and accent walls in cedar. Those turned out awesome as well. I highly recommend using those guys for any project, big or small. They have pride in their work and at the end you will not feel taken advantage of, which is too often the case when working with other contractors.

Victor replaced a tar roof on my office building. I am very pleased with the new roof. What makes Victor shine is his honesty and willingness to work through difficult situations such as short notice changes to the roofing schedule. He has a great crew that works hard. Victor is easy to reach (a real plus for a contractor) and quick to respond to messages. I would use him again for any work on my building that he is qualified for.

Travis and his team did a pretty good job on our fence. The staff was respectable and nice. They asked a lot of questions etc around work which I preferred. The fence turned out exactly as I had asked for but required close monitoring via communication. They were timely and affordable...and while the quality of the work might not a 5 star...for what they did, it was a fair price. I would work with this team again. I had quotes for our fence from at least 9 contractors...and only All Backyard Construction and another quoted me this low. You are getting decent quality work for a good price. I would recommend them to friends and family...and I just recommended them to a colleague as we speak.

Jesus is a great contractor to work with, and I will recommend him to friends. He did everything right, from the estimate to the finished work. The intial contact, the estimate, the communication, the expectation, the delivery, and the final product were all excellent, if there were 6 stars, I'd give him another one.

The fellows from RM BIRD were fantastic! They listened to my needs, worked with my meager budget to remove mold & re-tile a tub/shower stall, were very responsive in starting the project & finished with great efficiency. There was a slight issue with the grout settling & leaving a couple of small holes, so I called Steve. He came out the next day after his regular work day was done to repair it. I was impressed by that bit of professionalism. It was my first time hiring a contractor; it won't be the last time hiring RM BIRD. Thanks guys!

Super happy with the shed roof pergola Ideal Property Alterations built for me in the front of our yard. The structure has exceeded my initial expectations in terms of quality of work and overall aesthetics. It looks fantastic and is a perfect addition to my yard. Highly recommend this group for any project in home or around your yard. Cost-effective, on time and quality work.

We got a couple quotes and Jose gave an extremely competitive price and estimated less than the time frame of other contractors. In the end, he spent 3 days on the project, which was skim coating the ceilings in three rooms. He took great care with our property and furniture, and he checked in with us throughout the project to make sure we were satisfied. Overall, Jose was communicative, honest, and skilled. We would recommend him.

We bought a new home and wanted to extend our concrete patio. James came out and looked at our patio, gave us a detailed, professional proposal (and the best pricing). He even explained what to be careful if we decide to hire a different contractor. After we decided to go with him, James and his crew came and did a very professional job, including cleaning up. We are very happy and would definitely recommend James and his company!

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.

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.  

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.  

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
