I went through Thumbtack to find a contractor who would paint pipes on my and our neighbors' roofs to more closely match the siding. A.D.A.D. responded immediately, and I had a great experience with them leading up to, and throughout, the project. They followed up with me to confirm dates and times on coming to our home to spec the project, and then confirmed specifics again when they were going to come paint for us. Their pricing was very fair, and the crew was very pleasant. On top of that, they were efficient and finished the project in one day, and matched the paint on the pipes perfectly to our home siding. My neighbors and I are all extremely pleased with the outcome of this project. I would recommend A.D.A.D. to other homeowners.

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.

Barrett’s Custom Carpentry turned our builder’s basic model house in Bethlehem into our dream home. Dan and his team are reliable, personable, and extremely professional. Their talent and skill knows no limit, and we couldn’t be happier with their work. From installing crown molding to building a gorgeous season room- bathroom renovations to major fireplace reconstruction-kitchen countertops, and much more. We highly recommend and are very thankful for their brilliance. James G.

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.

Showed up on time. Did what he said he'd do. Did it well. Caused no trouble. Cleaned up after himself. Billed me what he said he would charge. In short, Gary is the real deal.  Knowledgeable and personable, a true professional.  He should open a school to teach the next generation how to be excellent roofers.

Randy, the technician, is a nice person to talk to. He has good skills that allow him to explain specific details about my plumbing problems (clog in the toilet with slow drain in the sink and bath) and give me great advice. Above all this I was impress by his honesty. Willow hill renovators & property management is a good and trusty compagnie. I'm completely satisfied.

Rich did an extensive and complex hardwood flooring project at our large home(5000+sqft). It blended bamboo 1/2"x5.25" with the oak 3/4"x2.5". The oak was use as a boarder around the rooms with wood changing directions throughtout. This was done to blend the bamboo with the existing oak hardwood. He also completed our upstairs including a floating walkway. The wood was ran straight across the upstairs including the walkway and blended off of the straight run into side rooms/closets. Rich showed integrity throughout the project, was detailed orientated, avoided shortcuts, and used thoughtful planning on every step of the project. I would highly recommend him.

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.

We had an unused chimney which was leaking. 717 Masonry came the day after we accepted their proposal with all tools and supplies, ready to work. They capped the chimney and applied stucco to the sides to seal it. They even matched the house color. We were very satisfied.

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 !!!!!

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.

Our renovation project was fairly complex and I was very nervous signing up with contractors. we had very limited time to get the project done. I was happy to sign up with Chris as he was very anxious and very much interested to get the project started. Also, he walked thru detailed breakdown of budget which gave us confidence. It went very well with good pace, ahead of schedule. Chris was readily available and very customer friendly to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Due to unforeseen circumstances, ended slightly later than original schedule towards the end like any other major renovation projects. Chris is very knowledgeable and has tremendous experience, knowhow and displayed excellent skill and workman ship. He is very trustworthy and hardworking. Most of the subcontractors hired by him, did excellent job except the plumbing contractor. Will be glad to offer any reference if needed. Thank you Chris.

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.
