ADAD was hired to replace an old storm door, which included repairing rotted wood around the door frame. Bill’s team was very professional, hardworking and did quality work. The cost was very reasonable. It was a pleasure working with Bill and his team. I will hire them again in the future.

Sam was hired to replace my utility sink and faucet in the laundry room and repair the wall behind it. I then decided additionally to replace the existing floor with porcelain tile. Sam worked tirelessly and the job was done in two days. He was very professional and courteous and went above and beyond what was expected. He obviously has a lot of knowledge about many types of materials and repairs and improvements. He also left the work area very clean. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again in the future.

We had work done on a large wood deck (repair, power wash, and stain) on our house. We reached out to several contractors before deciding to use Michael Madonna and his team. We appreciated that they are a family-run business with 30+ years of experience. It was a pleasure working with Michael Madonna and his team from start to finish. Michael and his team were responsive, professional, and provided an honest assessment of the scope and cost of the project. They delivered on time and on budget without any hiccups. Because of the great work they did, we are planning to use them for other major remodeling/contracting work to be done on our house.

“Finding an honest hard-working contractor who really has pride in his work is sadly the exception, rather than the rule. Mr. Falcone and his company exceeded our expectations as to both the quality of the workmanship and cost of the project. The cost and scope of the work were explained up front, and we were kept advised, each step of the way, as to what to expect next. We were always kept “in the loop” and are exceedingly satisfied with the quality of the renovations performed. We now have an office environment that we are very proud of and which is both warm and professional; the two goals which we had from the very beginning of the project. I would highly recommend Mr. Falcone and his company to any business looking to renovate their office in a cost-effective, timely and professional manner.” – Howard S.

French Doors were installed perfectly, even though the doors were bigger than the doors the original contractor installed. Dave is extremely professional, arrives on time & is very upfront about the cost. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a very reliable contractor who gets the job done in a very timely and professional manner. Can't wait for him to help me with my next project! Great job Dave:-)))

Joe and his brother did an awesome job installing crown molding in my house! They were very particular in their work in order to provide me with the best craftsmanship possible. I was particularly impressed with their communication and attention to detail. The cost for installation and materials was most reasonable. Joe and Frankie were very personable as well as trustworthy. I would welcome them back anytime in the future to complete additional projects in my home.

Steven did an amazing job repairing a number of jobs at my house. He repaired holes and repainted numerous areas in the house, including the front door frame. He replaced front door handle and lock, reset my kitchen sink to my granite, replaced 3 light bulbs in hard to reach places, fixed brackets in my kitchen cabinets, replaced the brackets and re-hung a stair railing and replaced a stopper in my bathtub. He arrived exactly when he said he would and managed to understand exactly what I needed even with the chaos that are my kids. He stayed all day and finished the whole job and returned a couple days later to remove some braces and check my satisfaction with his work. He did all of this work for more then a reasonable price and I highly recommend him for any "handy man" job you may need.

Project: Repair laundry room ceiling and wall after a pipe leak in condo. Olly gave me the best solution rather than just giving me exactly what I asked for. He reduced the cost by installing a solution that would reduce effort in the future. I am very pleased and have scheduled him to do some additional work for me next month.

We hired Luke to redo our small outdated master bathroom. The job took approximately 3 weeks. He was on time daily, reliable, easy to communicate with, and knowledgeable and skilled with the work. Cost wise he was very reasonable. We couldn’t be happier. Luke did everything we needed. The tiled shower is gorgeous, new lighting, new vanity sink and toilet. The bathroom is like a mini spa. We also had him build a bathroom closet for storage and he took care with details so it matches the other doors in the house. I highly recommend Luke for any project work. 🌟 ⭐️ 🌟 ⭐️ 🌟 We will be hiring him again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.  

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
