I hired Jason to install new cabinets in my kitchen. This being my first remodeling project on my house, I got several quotes for the job. While Jason's quote wasn't the lowest, he saw every angle of the project along with all potential issues which may occur. He got the job done on the timeline he stated and for the price he quoted. He was able to save my counter-tops, which was the most important aspect of the job to me. I already have several more projects I want to accomplish and will hire Jason for all of them. I highly recommend him.

We had a leaning versa-look wall. Joe came very quickly after we called and supplied with a quote that evening. He rebuilt our wall, running into more difficulty than expected but finished the wall on time for the quote he provided us. Extremely happy with his services and would highly recommend.

Ron has done ALL my home and office modeling for the last 25 years. The bigger projects have included two total kitchen makeovers, a custom home office addition, 3 decks, and the complete conversion of a residential building into a commercial property. Ron is skilled, economical, diligent, and a true pleasure to work with. Some of the projects have required an architect. There has never been an issue with building as designed or in meeting all township codes or inspections. Though not requested, I am totally comfortable including my phone number as a reference. Jim : (724) 816 4595.

Dino was professional in every interaction whether in person or on the phone. He always answered his phone when I called or returned my message quickly. He listened carefully to the work I wanted done (construction of concrete parking pads) and provided a timely and fair quote. While I ultimately decided to hire another contractor for the project Dino remained professional and respectful even as I communicated that I was going in a different direction for the project. I would definitely consider hiring Decano Construction for future concrete projects.

My name is Andy Kelly. My wife and I "just had" to submit a review of the work that Justin Ellenberger of Ellenberger Construction completed at our home! First off, we inquired of his company and within 48 hours Justin was at our home measuring and suggesting designs for our pool deck. He advised us on a design and the material that he felt would suit our needs, and so now on to the quotes. We felt the quote was very fair so we moved forward. He completed demolition of our existing deck, ordered material and proceeded on our project. What impressed us was his work ethic, 7:00am - 4pm or later daily. Cleaned up after himself at the end of each day, ( a pet peeve of mine) so he scored highly in that regard, and above all was his attention to detail! Pictures just do not do his work justice! We truly feel that Justin is a master craftsman. Also his helpers, LD,& Derek, we're all very polite and courteous and actually very pleasant to have around. Please feel free to contact Justin to get in contact with us to come and check out his work firsthand. So in a nutshell we are VERY satisfied customers and for any future work we will being calling Ellenberger Construction.

I have used Woods Construction two times now. First project was a major one: rip out kitchen cabinets, install new ones, put sink, dishwasher, ceiling fan, flooring in, repair ceiling. They also did two bathroom renovations, painted entire floor & trim. They did a great job! He stayed on the time line he promised. One area of the bathroom needed a touch up and he came back immediately to fix. His prices are competitive. I am so glad I used him because I tried another contractor at the same time for the outside work and it was a nightmare. Since then, I have used him again for outside work doing a set of cement steps. Again he did a professional job! I will be using Woods Construction again! I am very pleased.

These guys did a great job at a fair price. They were prompt, courteous, and easy to get along with. Being a retired contractor myself, this was a tough job and they were willing to cooperate with my suggestions. They were neat, and cleaned up daily. I have already contracted them for other jobs.

Blatnik Construction was the best! Joe was very responsive during all phases of the work that we needed done. We moved out the exterior wall of our kitchen and powder room to expand our kitchen/dining room and make a full bathroom. The work was extensive and each phase was well thought out and performed with the highest degree of workmanship. Joe and his team were very careful with our home and made sure that they minimized the "mess". We get many, many compliments on the work and each and every day we enjoy our new space. If we decide to do additional work on our home, we would definitely hire Blatnik Construction to do the work!

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.

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.
