ER construction is the best contractor that I have ever dealt w. We own a home in CT that we rent out - had some rain damage. I reached out to over 8 contractors and nobody would return my call. Those who did gave me outrages quotes. We live in TX and ER construction was reasonable and worked with me! He worked through all the issues we had and he was able to handle them all! He repaired the roof, he replaced and repaired walls! He did an amazing job. I have some upgrades that we are planning on doing to the home and ER construction will be the only contractor I will work with! I highly recommend him and will share photos

.RMPaolino Construction was contracted to remodel my unfinished basement and install baseboard heat throughout my house. Mr. Paolino and his team did an outstanding job planning and accomplishing this difficult job. The work was scheduled so that it caused me very little inconvenience and all phases of the job were completed on schedule. All of the work and construction materials were of professional grade, and the overall price tag was more than reasonable. I intend to hire Mr. Paolino to do other work on my property. Because my house is 114 years old, many adjustments and accommodations had to be made in order to accomplish everything I wanted. Nevertheless, Mr. Paolino worked around all of the obstacles and got everything done that I requested. And it looks great. I highly recommend his services. The overall project included the items listed below. 1. Cleared the basement of all junk and debris. 2. Removed the old boiler from the basement and 12 radiators and pipes throughout the house. 3. Removed all of the old steam piping, old excess electrical wires and unused gas lines running through the basement. 4. Removed all artificial walls, ceilings and floors throughout the basement. 5. Installed a brand new modern boiler and enclosed it with walls with sliding doors for access. 6. Installed baseboard heaters throughout the three-story house. 7. Replaced numerous copper water pipes with fiberglass pipes and insulated the copper piping that was not replaced. 8. Replaced seven basement windows with new windows. 9. Restored the worn brick walls of the basement 10. Framed the entire basement and installed insulation. 11. Installed and painted dry wall throughout the basement. 12. The electrical circuit box was replaced and electrical and cable ready outlets were installed all around the walls. The electrical circuit breaker, gas meter and water meter were enclosed in a small room with an access door. 13. A utility area was created on a raised platform where a washer, dryer, and sink were installed. 14. The basement floor was covered with an industrial strength carpet. 15. A drop ceiling with large panels with embedded florescent lights was installed.

I found Brophy Construction through this site. Sean contacted me within about an hour of my request. He looked at the job and provided me an estimate the same day. He completed the work as promised only four days after we initially spoke. Great job Sean! I would highly recommend he and his company.

Luiz is a very talented and skilled contractor. He remodeled both our master bathroom and our daughter's bathroom, and helped us make smart decisions on things like materials, design, installation options, etc. Luiz is extremely honest, courteous, friendly, and a perfectionist when it comes to the job. He also communicates in detail his construction plans, electrical, etc in a way that is easy to understand for someone like me who has no background knowledge in construction. He also saved us from costly expenses down the road by finding a mold problem before it become a major problem. We were lucky to have his expertise on the job, as I'm sure many contractors wouldn't have taken the extra precautions to find and treat the mold or they would've charged me thousands of dollars for a small problem. I would give Luiz 10 stars if I could, he's that amazing & you will love whatever project he works on!

We have been using K&S Remodeling for over a year to do various construction and maintenance and have been extremely happy working with them. They did a major repair of ice damage from the winter of 2015, they built a large 3 bay shed, the rebuilt one of our original 1920 outbuildings and then they remodeled the kitchen and bath of our 1870's farm house. These projects all entailed some serious construction/reconstruction. We had to remove an exterior wall, shore up the supports in the basement, and install support beams where we opened up exterior walls. All the work was done diligently with an eye towards perfection at each step of the process. Not only would I recommend them to my friends, I fully intend to use them for more projects.

Bill Brophy and crew were polite, professional and highly dependable. During the proposal process, his communications were respectful and timely. The proposal was thorough; and all of the work was completed in accordance with the written agreement. The work crew showed up on the job site [my home in Easton] precisely as scheduled; and diligently worked throughout the day. I can affirm that Bill Brophy is a man of his word; and his business, HomeKore Mfg Co of MA is a trustworthy firm. In addition to receiving compliments from my neighbors on the finished project; I am exceptionally pleased with the work that was done. And having the sense that I was dealing with a highly reliable contractor made it a stress-free experience for me.

Working with NKB Construction was a true pleasure. We had damage in our bathroom from a water leak that required us to redo our bathroom on short notice. NKB was quick to respond, and started the project quickly. They were on time and on budget throughout the job. All crew members were curtious and pleasant, and they kept the jobsite as tidy as possible. The quality of their work was top notch, and we are thrilled with our new bathroom. I'd recommend NKB without reservation.

Although our project was out of the realm of construction...we needed a tar and gravel roof repaired, along with some tile work on another part of the roof...Peter was very knowledgeable and worked with us to plan a repair option at reasonable cost. The project was finished on budget and on time with minimal disruption. I would certainly consider them for other projects down the line.

Before I tell you why I'm giving Tom a 5 star review it might mean more if I share some of my background. I'm a retired Marine and spent 20 years in the construction utilities field, for 5 years following that I was the Structural Superintendent for a major University, and now I am a Facilities Manager. I have spent several years hiring and firing contractors in all trades to include painting and plastering. I would consider Tom to easily be in the top 5 of all contractors I have hired in the past. I base this not only on his talent but his work ethic and attention to detail. I contacted Tom after I let another contractor go when he struggled to complete my ceiling after 3 days and it still looked terrible. Tom came in on Thursday and explained to my wife and I what he could do. We set up the ceiling work for the next day and said we would see how it goes before we decide on the walls. Tom came in, covered the work area, and got busy. Before he even finished the ceiling I hired him for the walls. It was obvious he knew what he was doing. He finished the ceiling in 1 day then came back on Saturday, worked through lunch and completed the walls in 1 day. I will be hiring Tom again for future work and if you are in need of a plasterer you better snatch him up before people catch on and he gets tied up for 2 months like the rest of the best. Tom did an excellent job to minimize the mess by covering the floors and door but this is plastering so it doesn't matter how good you are it will get on things you don't want it on so don't hold that against him. His prices are fair so check him out. Thanks Tom, see you soon!

    We were looking for a contractor who was willing to do a smaller project for my elderly parents which involved giving their kitchen a makeover/update with a limited budget. Not only was Brant willing, but he gave their kitchen a facelift that made it look so bright and refreshed from the old, dated dark kitchen it was and freshened up the dining room as well! Most contractors will try to convince you to do more, but Brant knew there was a limited budget and worked within that budget to accomplish a fresh new look. We were so pleased with the results that we will be using BRG Construction Services to construct a first floor bathroom project that is necessary because of my Mom's physical limitations so she can remain in her home. So if you have a project be it small or large, you can feel confident that BRG Construction Services will do a great job at a fair price.

      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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

      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.
