Tony did a great job installing my washer and dryer, moving some plumbing around so I could have them exactly where I want them, and installing a new spigot. His prices were completely fair and reasonable and the work is top notch! We will be hiring him again for some other projects around the house.

I found ADAD through Thumbtack and was impressed with their reviews. Additionally, they responded the fastest and came the next day for the estimate. We were moving into our new house in less than a week and they fit us into their schedule. We had them paint all of our ceilings since the contractor had painted walls and ceilings the same bone color. Their work was swift and quite good. Still can't find any faults. The crews showed up on time and worked hard all day. I will use them again.

Mr. Robertson did exactly what he said he would do and did it extremely well. We are happy with the pressure washing of the deck and vinyl siding at the back of the house. The stained deck really "pops." Mark was a pleasure to work with and has a great work ethic. We plan to have him do other jobs in and around our home.

I hired Sam Gresham to move large pieces of furniture in my house, break down and reassemble some existing Ikea furniture, and assemble a delivery of three new Ikea pieces. Sam and his assistant Steve arrived on time and worked straight through for 4 hours. They were very conscientious and thorough. After they finished, they cleaned up and even took the Ikea cardboard boxes off my hands. In the end my house looked beautiful. Overall, it was very pleasant and reassuring doing business with Sam. I would definitely recommend him!

Glen and his crew did an excellent job laying my natural stone floors. From the first conversation, I knew they were knowledgeable and professional. The installers worked with my family so that we could maintain our normal routines as much as possible during the installation. The flooring installation exceeded my expectations. Glen worked with my budget and provided helpful suggestions to save money. I look forward to a long relationship with JR Custom Builders as they are coming back to renovate my kitchen.

While cleaning my kitchen cabinets, I pulled off the entire heavy panel of 30 year old doors. It was a mess and I was planning a party the next night. I discovered Thumbtack online and found Joe. I sent him pictures, he saw my dilemma, and agreed to arrive at 7 AM the next morning! He arrived on time and he and a helper had it fixed in no time, better and stronger than new.I never expected such a quick resolution, and was thrilled, and now plan on having Joe do some long overdue painting on my funky old house. I’m now a Thumbtack, and Joe convert! Highly recommended.

Joe Valentino built a raised deck on the back of my house as well as a brick patio. The development I live in requires approval and Joe went through the steps to get their approval as well as applying for all the permits for the township. He was very helpful in explaining the different type of decking material available and the costs associated with the choice I selected. He also went above and beyond safety measures. His style of construction is to build it so that it is made to last. I will be hiring Valentino to remodel my bathroom in the near future.

Will did an excellent job with helping to remodel my closet. I needed him to remove some pieces of old shelving comma paint the closet, and hang new custom shelving. He was very professional and came after hours to work on my project. He either showed up on time or let me know if he was running late. I plan to use him for future projects around the house.

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.

We discovered mold in the basement wall and underneath laminate floor few weeks after we moved into our new house. Unfortunately this was missed by the home inspector. We had redo the full basement (1350 sq ft). This included dry wall, new ceramic tile, fireplace, theatre room, electrical work etc. Tim helped us during this painful times. He was able to find the source of the problem (water leak) which I think needed a lot patience and detective work. He always gave us a honest opinion and has a vast wealth of knowledge that you can not get on the internet. Not only is he pleasant and personable, but a stickler for perfection. He followed up on every last detail until the job was completed. The result was outstanding as we now have a basement with a very modern look. Since then we used his services numerous times and also refered him to my friends who shared a similar opinion.

    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 !!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
