I am very pleased with the final result of the molding project that John helped us with. He was very professional and responsive throughout the entire process. I'm very happy that I held off on having our builder install the molding, as John's pricing and final product was much better.

Saul and his colleague were excellent. I had a relatively small project (about 175ft of crown molding to install in two rooms), but Saul showed up on time and finished the job the same day. He also let me know of issues as they arose during the project so I could make the judgment calls on how to proceed. He was professional, courteous, timely, clean, and efficient. He is a rare find among handymen, and I would hire him again without hesitation.

Such a great decision to hire! Very skilled and knowledgeable, but more than that, he genuinely cares about your project and is respectful of your home. An outstanding value! It's really a no-brainer. He was even able to fix a previous plumbers mistake. Thank you!!!

We were very happy with Tom. He was the only contractor that responded to us after calling 5 contractors. He repaired a crumbled step in 90 degree weather and did a great job. Would highly recommend.

They renovated our new office in downtown Baltimore - drywall installation, painting, flooring and toilet installation. They were the only company who was willing to work with our budget and they did an excellent job. I can recommend them without any reservation.

I give my highest recommendation to Jake Esh and his team. Polite, professional, prompt - followed through on each and every detail of the project. The workmanship on my Trex deck is the best that I've seen. Not a single screw, fastener or flaw can be seen. The attention to detail was superb. Jake explained every option of each detail for approval prior to moving ahead with the work. He also fixed a roof leak that has been plaguing our house since we moved in - and did so at a very reasonable price. We had some good choices in deck builders as we conducted our search, but now that the project is completed we are convinced that we definitely made the right choice with Stoney Ridge Home Improvements. We'll be asking them back this spring to look at our other renovation projects we have planned.

Rich helped us with our kitchen remodel project in our town home in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The project included removal of half of a wall, and installation of ceramic tile flooring, hardwood cabinets, and appliances, including all accompanying electrical and plumbing work. The job is still in progress, as we are waiting on additional parts to be delivered from the cabinet company. Rich is very flexible and easy to work with. He was able to answer any questions we had about the project and provide advice from his professional experience. Overall, Rich was a polite and trustworthy guy who has been a pleasure to work with. His prices are fair and from what we have seen so far, the quality of his work is excellent.

I had the opportunity to work with Porter Robert LLC on a remodeling project. The vision, creativity and craftsmanship to transform a dated dwelling to a welcoming, and comfortable environment was fantastic. Using Porter Robert for your home remodeling should not be limited to just craftsmanship but I suggest you be open to their design concepts.

Jeff Stottlemeyer of Jeffhomepro was recommended to me by a home stager/designer, and I am pleased to highly recommend Jeff for your home improvement needs. Jeff was instrumental in preparing my home for sale in 2015. Major projects, included painting the interior of my 3200+ square foot house and refurbishing my large deck. He also did landscaping work in my Asian-themed garden. His work was consistently of the highest quality and reflected close attention to detail. I could always rely on Jeff to show up when he said he would, ready to get to work. Projects were completed in a timely manner. His rates were reasonable and very competitive. My house presented beautifully to potential buyers, and I credit that to Jeff's work. I would definitely use his services again, and have recommended him to friends and family members.

The worst part about the projects we had completed with Angel are that they're over, so we don't get to see Angel on a daily basis any more. Over the span of the last several months Angel and his team have completed several projects for us, and every one has been done with extreme focus on doing things the right way and making sure we're happy with the outcome. Angel really can do it all, from plumbing to electrical to carpentry to drywall and beyond. There's nothing we've asked of him that he's not been able to excel at. The projects he's completed for us include: 1) Rewiring and replumbing our entire basement which was a mess of 60 years worth of "DIY" jobs gone wrong and old wiring that needed to be replaced. He called out a plumbing issue he saw (corroded pipes that water would fall from if they were tapped), which we hadn't originally asked him to do because we didn't know it was a problem. He quickly replaced all of the main lines coming into the house and those feeding into the first floor. 2) Replaced 6 basement windows for us that had been causing water issues. He and his team had to repair and replace a great deal of damaged concrete and framing to get the new windows in, and I can't even begin to tell you how much of a difference it's made in our basement. We had actually consulted with two other "window installers" about the job, and they both came in with ridiculous costs, and weren't even going to address the issues we raised to them. Like I said, Angel focuses on getting everything done right. 3) Our freaking awesome kitchen remodel!!! Angel and his team demoed our old kitchen, moved all of our gas, plumbing, and electrical lines (and installed new ones), moved a load baring wall, installed new flooring, built and installed our cabinets, and installed our appliances. The result is absolutely everything I dreamed. If you're looking for someone to help out with some small tasks around the house, or to do major construction for you, I simply could not recommend Angel more highly. He's honest, trustworthy, kind, and extremely talented at his trades.

We hired GCI to update our entire house , from the cellar to the third floor. New rugs , floors, paint,new bathroom and kitchen and a total clean up for the entire house. Updates were made to the plumbing and electrical systems. Perry and his crew were excellent. They showed up every day on time, they were respectful and kind to my entire family. They did beautiful work. Perry was always available to talk to with any questions. The crew worked quickly and we trusted them 100 percent. I was reluctant to start such a large project but Perry and his crew were there for us from start to finish. They made our house a home and I will be forever grateful to them. They went above and beyond their duties every day. Our family has a better life and we couldn’t be happier with our new home . Thank You Perry and crew !!!!!

Bob responded quickly to our needs, he was able to quote the job and start within a few days. Bob's custom trim work was the finishing touch needed to help complete our newly renovated livingroom and kitchen. I recommend using Bob for you next project.

We were renovating a 48,000 ft.² building and needed help. We found in Mr. Doyle to be for mostly a quality person with talent for construction and building. It is my understanding that he has also taught construction in the Dauphin County education system. He showed up on time every day and did what was necessary to move the project forward. We were looking for generalists who could do a variety of things well and we feel that this is what we got. Surely, if we found ourselves in a similar position in the future, I would surely call him back.

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 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 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.

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.
