Scotty and his assistant are great guys! They were expedient in completion of repairs and took the time to explain what they found to be the cause of my plumbing woes. I will call them for any future plumbing and remodeling projects.

Manny came out to give us an estimate to replace 7 casing windows as well as several other local companies. He was the only one that wasn't an over the top salesman just pushing to seal the deal while they were there. He was honest, straight forward and only gave us an estimate on what we were looking for, not what some salesman wanted to push. His estimate was very reasonable and fair. He did the complete install in a day and a half and went out of his way to do a couple requests and accommodate us. The windows look great, great quality and professionally installed. Outstanding job! Would highly recommend him!

Nelson and Tony showed up on time and were nicely dressed in uniforms. They took me through the garage to show me the work they were going to complete and gave me what turned out to be a very realistic timeline for completion. I checked in on them a few times and found them working hard and making great progress. Both men were very accommodating to my residents and would move their ladders and allow for cars to access their parking spaces. I received two compliments from residents for both the difference in how bright the garage is now compared to before and how polite the Fixed staff was to them. Kudos to you for doing such a fantastic job and for making me a believer that there are still good service companies out there. I've been burned and this was a refreshing experience. Keep up the great work. I will call you again when I am ready to upgrade the interior fixtures. - Cindy

Fina Ross guided us through a major remodel of our master bath, giving us the unique, old world style retreat that we always wanted. We love it every day. We have even had visitors who come back to our house with friends just to show them our bathroom. Other contractors lacked the vision, creativity, artistry and know how help us, and Fina Ross stood out right away as a contractor willing to go the extra mile and bring ingenuity, craftsmanship, and cost-consciousness to a big project. She spent hours walking us through choices and drawing sketches until we had exactly the look we wanted. She wraps design skills into every step of her projects at no extra charge, and that alone puts her head and shoulders above the rest. Additionally, she is relentlessly committed to customer satisfaction. She took every one of our phone calls, responded ot all emails, made herself available for meetings at any time that was convenient for us, AND applied the same level of service to the few minor issues we had after the job was finished and after she and been fully paid.

We recently needed a deck built on the back of my dad's home to replace a cement patio. I went to Thumtack, which of late I always do, and found Dillon and All Aboard Decks. He was congenial and straight forward. I also took three other bids for the same job. Most of them were more costly than Dillon's, put what put me off of all of them was their slow response and also their apparent need to explain to me why their price was so high. Dillon arrived on site right on time and he and his crew had a brand new cedar deck built in TWO DAYS! This included railing all around the deck surface and steps with a handrail. It is difficult to even see the screws used. My father, for whom the deck was built kept saying, over and over, "This is not a deck, it's a masterpiece!" My dad is not easily pleased and especially when he is spending money. The highest praise came while he was sitting on his new deck and looking around and said; the deck was "Worth every penny!" If you can't tell by now, I would highly recommend All Aboard Decks for your project. I've already got them in mind for an upcoming project on our new home!

I needed to have 16 linear ft of interior wall removed to open up the house. Additionally, there would be new drywall and repair requirements, flooring, and paint to finish the project. Jim was not the cheapest of the 3 quotes that were offered, but, as an experienced home builder for 30+ years, he impressed, was methodical and scientific in his project approach, is insured, and the pictures of the work that was completed in his portfolio were great. The project did have scope creep, and the cost adjustments were transparent and fair. The project came out to my satisfaction. Professional, meticulous, OCD (it’s great for a contractor), polite, and trustworthy; both individually and in his resourcing and supervision of subcontractors for the areas not under his direct scope (floor and paint). I would also like to add, that during this project, I unfortunately broke my tibia, being immobilized till now. Jim was courteous, ensured area safety, cleanliness, and even when I needed personal aid (an occasional run to the fast food joint) he did it. He cares about his work and his clients.

Felipe and Jacob were very professional, always on time, and completed the project in a timely manner. They were tasked with fixing our 1 yr old frameless leaky shower and true to his word, it no longer leaks! His team had to tear the entire shower down to the wood frame and rebuild from scratch. I'd highly recommend Felipe and his team to anyone looking for a small to large bathroom renovation. The estimate received was fairly priced compared to the others we received. Thanks, Felipe! You have happy customers here!!

Tom was a pleasure to have in our home. Tom helped to put together a boot bench and a television cabinet. The television cabinet was complex, but Tom handled it easily. He also helped to put up a dry erase board in minutes. I recommend Tom to any friends that need help with a handyman, whether it's assembling new furniture or repairing a sprinkler system. Thanks, Tom!

Fantastic service! A true professional! Geronimo was on time, courteous, and genuinely cared about tracking down the real problem and solving it for the long term. He took pictures of the problem areas and walked me through the solutions until I felt comfortable. If I ever need any repairs or a new roof, I would not hesitate to use them again. Can't recommend him enough.

Marco and his guys do great work. I hired them to build a fence & refurbish an entire deck. The work was done on budget & on time. Since that first job, I've had them back for a plumbing issue that required sheet rock replacement. Their most recent project for us was a complete redesign and landscaping of our entire back yard. We are very pleased with the results. Marco & his crew are great!

Superior work done in a flash. Joe and his crew were professional and on time. They repaired and painted some superficial cracks in three rooms of my home. They have scaffolding and can match the paint for your interior.

Russ from SoloPoint was simply great all around. To start, he was able to confirm a specific time -- other contractors always give you a large, unspecific window. After several conversations both over the phone and in person, he explained the work he was going to do and what it would cost. I was looking for someone who would take the time to do the job well -- after all, hot water is essential when you're just moving into your new home. He followed up with me to make sure that everything was working properly and nothing was leaking a few hours later. I would absolutely recommend him and work with him again.

From the very beginning, the process was smooth and professional. Tom was able to come out (on a weekend) and give me a quote on a very last minute job. He had his crew out for the door install just two days later! I had to install a new door and repair some wood rot before before my new floors were going to be installed. Tom made it happen! Tom and his team were great to work with. John and Wade removed my existing french doors, resolved the wood rot, and installed new sliding doors. They look great and function well. John went above and beyond my expectations. I could have hired the door installers from the Big Box stores, but my experience with them is they can only do the bare minimum that was written on the job quote. Tom's team was able to move on the fly and make repairs without any hassles or run around. It's very difficult to find quality workmanship and trustworthy carpenters. I highly recommend ToMakNew Remodeling and I'll definitely work with ToMakNew for future renovations.

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.
