Everything you could ask for and more! I usually never write reviews, but when it comes to hiring people and it companies to do work I felt important to share. We all know how difficult it is to find a good contractor. Elsayed came out on a Sunday and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Installed 3 toilets, dishwasher, garbage disposal, 2 faucet fixtures. Also corrected numerous plumbing issues in the process. From start to finish he let me know what was going on every step of the way. His recommendations were spot on as he came across other issues throughout the project. I always felt confident everything would get done right and did it ever! Never strayed from the up front and honest pricing. I’ve already rehired Elsayed to do more work in my home as OSA is a full service general contractor. Hire with absolute confidence!!!

We originally met with Steve for an estimate to replace our roof, but before he came over for the first meeting a tree fell on our sunroom, and so we needed additional repairs associated with that damage. Steve came over and was very patient with my questions, gave me multiple estimates for a few different scopes of work, and was very willing to help me deal with the insurance process (though that turned out not to be necessary). Though his estimate wasn't the cheapest, his excellent customer service was above and beyond compared to the other roofing companies. Steve was always responsive to our questions and did a great job keeping us updated on schedule and progress as the project moved forward. The roof and sunroom now both look great! Overall I had a very positive experience with all of Stella Construction's employees and would definitely work with them again.

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!

Eduard with BBC just finished our bathroom and I felt like writing a review. A lot of times, people only write reviews for bad service or work that was poorly done, so I thought I'd take the time to recognize some excellent work. I was beyond impressed with BBC. After we had a lot of trouble with another contractor doing other work in our house, we knew we had to find someone different for our bathroom. We had at least 4 different contractors come over to check out the job and give us quotes. BBC actually came in at the best price. On top of that, he really worked with us to get it within our budget and exactly what we wanted it to look like. With 2 kids and limited funds, his flexibility was MUCH appreciated. Not one of the other contractors was willing to work with us in that way. I figured that since he was so great budget-wise and with such a great personality, he'd be difficult once the work got started. I was definitely wrong! He was beyond professional and stayed on top of every subcontractor to make sure they got their work done on schedule--unheard of in the industry! He will answer his cell phone any and every time we called. Eduardo actually finished our bathroom on schedule, he also finished within budget. I would definitely hire him again, and hopefully we have a chance to. I hope you have the same experience that we had....Thanks Eduardo our new bathroom looks great! James Sampaio

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.

Mr. DeOliveira was very professional. He gave me a quote and stuck to it. He showed up on time and did a great job installing s cement pad in the front of my house. He came back the next day and finished the work. Finally he had to come back a week later and repair the job after a truck backed into the house and damaged the concrete. Mr. DeOliveira came right out promptly and fixed the damaged pad at no charge. I would highly recommend DeOliveira Construction. Tom Steeves, Bellingham, MA

.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.

We hired Justin to do a little framing for us and he has since done a multitude of other jobs around our house. He is very skilled and knowledgeable about all facets of construction. If there’s something you need done that’s outside of his expertise he will point you to reliable contractors you can trust. We will continue to utilize his services on this project and in future projects. Justin is very personable, trustworthy and fair on pricing. You won’t regret hiring him and, like us, you will likely be adding him to your contact list so you can reach him whenever you need help! He is sincerely a pure joy to work with. Thank you, Justin!

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.

Services Provided; Total kitchen redesign complete with new floorplan layout. Consulting for cabinet options, cabinet and drawer insert options as well as countertop, appliance and flooring suggestions. Service received; Mike allowed us the choice of using any contractor for any construction services. We opted to do our own demo and electrical to save a little money but chose to use his contractor and were very glad we did! He was very easy to work with and did great work. My wife and I were very pleased with the finished project. I think the two things that made this project more than "Pretty & Practical" were, price and Mikes service! From the four estimates we received, Kitchen Options was not the least expensive but it was affordable. Mike's part in this was everything you'd want in a general manager of a project such as this. If he wasn't always available all the time he returned my calls, texts or e-mail right a way. He always answered uestions and provided information clearly, professionally and friendly! It made made our big, stess filled project get completed easier than expected.

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.

I hired this company for a painting job for an apartment that we needed to put in good condition ASAP. They completely exceeded my expectations. I originally had doubts but they reassured me of their total dedication to customer satisfaction and they kept their word. Strongmen construction is made up of polite and lovely hardworking guys. Will highly recommend them. They will match your price and completion date, spot on. Will hire them again for a basement project pretty soon!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
