Steve did a great job on my project, under what were really trying circumstances. I had three different contractors working at the same time, and Steve came in, worked around everything that was happening (without complaint) and did outstanding work. I will definitely use him on future projects.

Justin did a nice job replacing some exterior trim on my home. He was professional and patient, and willing to explain the specifics of the project. His work was excellent and the cost was reasonable. He paid particular attention to the small details. Justin was methodical and didn’t rush through the job like some contractors. Also, unlike many contractors, Justin is not afraid of climbing. I would highly recommend Justin to a friend for exterior trim repair or replacement.

Todd was responsive and was the best value for dollar of other quotes. He made time for me under time constrains that others could not meet.

ER Construction is by far the best company we have ever had do work on our home. We have had some horrible experiences in the past with contractors who didn't show up, finish work promised, were sloppy and rude. ER Construction has finished all the work in our 1850 colonial and it has surpassed our expectations. The painting, floor refinishing, ceiling repair, and floor installation has been incredible and we are having them paint the exterior as well. We are very happy and satisfied and are recommending them to everyone we know!

As a frequent Thumbtack user, I've had a lot of contractors work on my house including other painters. Cleynira Construction and the owner Cody are by far the best we've ever used. They painted the outside of our 1950 colonial and it looks fantastic!! Cody also used his construction skills to remedy some tricky wood rot in some decorative detailing areas near that I thought would be very difficult to fix. If you want superior quality work at a very competitive price, I highly recommend these guys. I'm extremely happy with their work and I will rehire them at every opportunity.

I hired Latham to cut a few holes in the walls for plumbers to find and fix a leaky pipe. In addition, he installed wall mounted shelving for me (RAKKS). He had never installed the Rakks system before but that wasn't a problem as the instructions were easy. The standards were level and aligned so I'm pretty happy with the work. I will hire again.

I found Bryan through Thumbtack. He contacted me immediately and came to the house to see what needed to be done within a day. He was very professional, quoted me a very reasonable price, fit me right into his schedule, and did a great job. I will definitely be using him again in the future for additional drywall work I need done, and would highly recommend Bryan for anyone in need of drywall work.

Ademar De Ollveira did a wonderful job hanging drywall ans plastering the walls and ceiling in our new construction room in the basement. He and his crew completed the job as scheduled. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a responsible and professional person to do their projects. Thanks.

Very pleased with Bob and his crew. After two years of being jerked around by various contractors and friends who said they could "easily do this" we finally found RM Paolino Construction. Bob met with us on a Saturday and gave us a detailed estimate with some great cost-saving design changes for our kitchen and bathroom. We signed a contract that following Friday and by Monday morning our bathroom was gutted and on its way. What a relief it's been to deal with a real contractor after all time we wasted with other so called "professionals". Bob has kept us up to speed every step of the way and the bathroom looks great. Can't wait for kitchen to start. Highly recommend RM Construction to anyone looking for a professional, full service contractor who won't give you the run around!

Happy to have them in my home. Very strong work ethic. Helped to coordinate other contractors work. (Also people you would want in your home.) Quite satisfied with their work. The room is lovely!

Go Green completed our home project on time and within our budget. We had a slider door and window replaced that required some reframing, removing and reinstalling siding, weather barrier and insulation. Frank and Ivan were true and experienced professionals- they arrived on time, were very polite, worked diligently, had a keen eye for detail and were very thorough. As with any project some unforeseen problems came up that could not have been anticipated. Julio worked with us to adjust the project’s hours; and Frank and Ivan offered a creative and aesthetically pleasing solution to a problem that would have sky-rocketed the overall cost. They wiped down everything before they left and completely cleaned up all debris. Finding a great contractor is always challenging for a homeowner. There are so many to choose from and most make claims that ultimately fall short or run well over-budget. Go Green was the most affordable and competitively priced company we consulted for our project; they exceeded ALL expectations and did a fantastic job! They will be getting repeat business from us.

We had Victor and Bay State redo our master bathroom. They did an excellent job and communicated what was happening each day on the project. Everything from the plumbing and electrical to the tile work and fixture installation, paint and woodwork was beautiful. Next time we need a contractor we will hire them again.

Last week my husband and I contracted with Woody's Home Improvement to install a new railing in the entry of our raised ranch home and tile back splash in the kitchen. We honestly could not be happier. In the past we have had other contractors who always left a mess and never put finishing touches on jobs. However, Woody paid so much attention to every detail from start to finish. He offered us design ideas and options for both jobs. He thoroughly explained how each job would be done and estimated the time and dollar amount with great accuracy! =) We have an 8 month old in the house and he was so considerate about noise and cleaning up after each job so our little one didn't find any left over nails or pieces of wood. I truly believe you just can't find good contractors like Woody these days. He is the guy that will treat your home as if it were his own. He improved both the safety and value of our house with these two jobs. We wish we could rate him with 10 stars!

Richard was the first contractor to respond to my inquiry and within three days of my job request, Richard quoted the work, bought supplies and completed the job. I was also very grateful that he fixed two other things that weren't even on the task list and he didn't charge extra. I plan on calling Richard when I'm ready with a few more things that need fixing around my house.

Bob “the builder” as my family and I refer to him is my go-to contractor for any work we need done. Bob built our entire 3000 sq ft house 14 years ago and we have had him back several times since for new projects. He is a quality builder, honest, reliable and reasonably priced. When we wanted an extra 2 car garage, we called Bob and he constructed an exterior 2 car garage for us, which turned out beautiful. He worked with us on the size, style and layout and made sure it complimented our main house structure. Years later, when wind storms caused a tree to fall through my garage, I called Bob again to make the repair. He did everything from fixing the soffit, siding and gutters to reshingling the roof. As always, he was professional, responsive and understanding as I worked through the cumbersome insurance company process. Recently, I hired Bob again to build a large elevated composite deck. His workmanship is sound and of high quality, his prices are reasonable and I highly recommend him to others. Bob has been building for a long time and he knows his stuff. He and his crew show up promptly every day (even when it’s 98 degrees out!) and I appreciate that they work hard and make consistent progress until the job is done. He communicates with me regularly to keep me informed on the project. I continue to be happy with Bob’s work and will have him back again when we have another project for him. Thank you Bob for doing great work whenever we need it.

I highly recommend Dewitt painting. Eric did an exterior paint job on our large home and it came out excellent. It was obvious he was more concerned with the quality of the outcome more so than just getting the job over with which unfortunately is rare today with many contractors. His price was fair but his quality was high. I will definitely use him again. I highly recommend Dewitt painting!

I hired Mr Fonseca to roof my elderly mothers roof and if i could add an extra star to the rating i would. I am also a licensed contractor but to old to get on roofs and i have seen too meany fly by night contractors only interested in how fast and how much they can make, and care to little about honesty and quality. He did what he said he was going to do, for the price he said he would do it for and in the time he said he would do it. That's the quality part of his business. The honesty part is when my mom asked him to do some extra projects around the house and he did it after hours with one of his men for a price that was as if it was his own mother. When you consider the helpers wage, and the extra dumpster weight that is all he charged. I believe my mom gave him more than he asked for and he deserved it. Yes i would hire him again and recommend him also.

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.
