Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the best waterproof flooring for a basement?

There are several great options for waterproof basement flooring. For example, epoxy floors are waterproof but are thicker and sturdier than paint. Make sure the concrete substrate has been prepared for application. 

Tile is a designer’s dream, giving you a moisture-resistant surface that’s infinitely customizable. Rubber sheets or tiles are also good waterproof options, particularly for playrooms, workout areas or laundry rooms. 

Vinyl tiles and planks imitate wood or other materials very convincingly, provide moisture resistance and last a long time. And sheet vinyl is affordable and a great waterproofing solution for those in need of quick fixes.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Robert Horne did our basement remodeling. He and his crew worked very hard and the end result is wonderful. I would highly recommend him.

Paul was fantastic to work with and did an excellent job on finishing our basement. From the get go, I knew that Paul and his team would execute quickly and effectively as we were hoping for a quick turn around. The team was also very prompt and respectful of our household! It never felt a bother to have them working in our home as it can with some contractors. Highly recommend Paul for your next project.

My fiancé and I were tackling our first major home renovation - completing an unfinished basement. We were nervous about the entire process, especially finding a quality contractor. Some contractors never responded, others were way outside our price range. Anthony was friendly and helpful from the start. He made us feel completely at ease and guided us through the entire process. The work started ahead of schedule and he was very communicative, answering all our questions and immediately tending to any minor concerns that came up during the renovation. The crew worked neatly (we couldn’t have a dumpster on site due to HOA regulation), hauling all trash at the end of each day to a construction waste site. Although they did not work long hours (approx. 8:30a-2p daily, traveling from New Jersey), their craftsmanship was evident in the suggestions they made and the work they performed. Towards the end, we did feel like the crew were rushed to get to other scheduled jobs on time, leaving some very minor things unattended (paint touch up mostly), but we would most definitely hire again!
