Juan was amazing to work with. He took the time to find exactly what I wanted, was very affordable, did a great job installing the granite, protected the floors in the house so he wouldn't damage anything, and most of all is trustworthy. I had another contractor bail on some other jobs at the house and Juan graciously offered to complete the drywall/painting work. He made it look really good! Juan communicates very well, shows up when he says he will, and completes the job with integrity. I will be using him in the future and highly recommend him. Trustworthy contractors are rare to find these days.

Blast did and excellent job reinstalling the molding on the ground floor of our townhouse that was flooded out a few weeks ago. I called him and he was here the next day to take a look at the place and he volunteered to come and work all day on Sunday with another guy in order to get the job done. They had to work the entire day and they never quit. He was very polite and friendly to me and my family throughout the day. He even volunteered to come back this week to repair the vanity in my bathroom and paint the entire downstairs. Overall, you couldn't ask for a better contractor and worker. I would recommend him and his crew to anyone and everyone. We have a number of other things that we repairing or replacing and we're going to ask him to do it all.

When it comes to contractors of any kind I am a skeptic, however in the situation I was in (needing to get a property cleaned asap) I had no choice but to use one and I have to say that Silver Water Solutions was simply amazing! Professional, reasonable, prompt and more importantly they did a GREAT job! In fact they did more than I expected. I am very pleased with this company and will definitely use them on a ratable basis going forward. Fantastic job!

After being extremely disappointed in the drywall and painting work done by a previous contractor, I hired Isaac Delcid to redo the previous contractor's work and then continued to use him on one project after another. Not only did he make the walls that were floated and painted by the prior contractor perfectly smooth, he astounded everyone working on my renovation project by being able to float an extremely textured room and ceiling to a perfectly smooth finish. On a Sunday, He even provided free examples of how the finished wall would look because I had a hard time believing it could be floated smooth. Later, his tile expert installed some challenging tiles in a bathroom at no charge to demonstrate that these tiles could also be installed with a perfectly smooth surface. I was amazed enough to have Isaac Delcid's crew rip out all of the tiles in three other bathrooms that were poorly done by a previous contractor and reinstall them perfectly. Well worth the money. Isaac Delcid is an extremely good communicator, generates professional proposals, is able to do the work quickly and efficiently, and never fails to impress me. I have had at least nine contractors on this project and Isaac Delcid is definitely the best in the business. I almost regret writing this positive review, because I want to keep him for my own projects only!

My house flooded and Tell Projects came to the rescue! Gave me a free estimate sent it within that week they came out and started my home remodel the following week. I had a huge problem with trust due to another contractor who took a deposit and ran with my money but Tell Projects gave me trust again with contractors. I am so happy with Zach, Michael, Aquiles and Gerzain. They are caring to details, responsible and great team put my house back together for my family and I again. I will definitely recommend them ro everyone to use Tell Projects for any major projects they need done in their home! I am more than impressed with their work!

You will not regret hiring Ivan! He did an outstanding job on my kitchen backsplash and it transformed our kitchen. Ivan sincerely enjoys tile work and it shows in his craftsmanship and attention to detail. After dealing with a lot of contractors recently, I also appreciate Ivan's professionalism and just simply showing up on time. I will absolutely hire him again if I have any more tile projects in our home.

Some contractors care about their work, and some just care about getting work. These guys did a great a job and took the time and care to do a great job, almost as if they take pride in their craft. [Go figure in today's society.] What's most impressive is that this was a small job and they still handled it very professionally. I would definitely hire again.

These guys were fantastic to work with. They're the first contractors that I have worked with in Houston that acted like professionals, and the work was fantastic. Everybody showed up on time, communication was great, and the process was very easy. I submitted for a quote via Thumbtack, and they were the only company to (promptly) respond and send somebody out in a timely manner. The bid was reasonable, and exactly what I was expecting for the job. Bryan and his crew did an awesome job, and finished the work a day earlier than anticipated. Bryan was very adamant that the job was completed to my satisfaction, and was great during the final walkthrough.

We screened in an existing porch. Had a very good experience. Katrina put together a reasonable quote, answered all our questions and helped us with some decisions. Steve, the subcontractor that did the work was excellent... he really care about the quality of the work and provided some great ideas that we accepted even though it was not what we originally wanted. In the end, Steve was right and we are delighted with the work. The quality of work was good, the timeliness was good, the cost was reasonable and the attention to details was excellent. Based on this particular experience, I would recommend this contractor.

I've only recently met A&M and they've only done one project for me so far. But I have been impressed with what I've seen. Their work is good and the prices are reasonable. But what makes me ecstatic about A&M is that they show up when they say they will. None of this "oh I'm out in Richmond" when they have an appointment with me at the same time. I've had so much trouble with flaky contractors this year, and it's only gotten worse since Harvey. These guys show up when they say they will. I may have found my new go-to contractor. I had a drain leak in one of the properties I manage. The plumber had to cut out sections of the drywall and even a section out of the siding outside. After several failed attempts with other contractors, I found A&M. They showed up on time and made the repairs. The work looks good and they did a good job of matching the paint where needed. I sent them to another property today to give me an estimate for a project. They said they would be there at 3:30, and they were there at 3:30. I have never given such a long and flowery review for anyone. I usually just click the stars and move on. But I am so happy that I've found someone who actually does what they say they will do. I feel they deserve it. Before/after pics attached.

FANTASTIC BATHROOM RENOVATION Jeremy and Oliver did an amazing job from start to finish for our master bathroom remodel. At the proposal phase of the project, Oliver provided 3D models of the renovation to give us a realistic idea of the final product. He was also mindful of our budget and provided multiple price options for consideration. As the building materials and fixtures were selected, Jeremy and Oliver reviewed all specifications to ensure compatibility and completeness so once the project started, there would be not delays due to materials. The also used high quality materials, especially the cabinets which were constructed from solid wood, elegantly painted and included soft-close drawers. Once the project got started, Jeremy and the various sub-contractors will all very respectful, arrived on time and cleaned up at the end of each day. All the work was done with excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. There were a couple of times minor issue were identified and they were quickly fixed the following day. Throughout the process, both Jeremy and Oliver were responsive via e-mail and text letting us know what was happening each day and answering any questions we had. As we got to know them over the number of weeks, it was clear they loved what they did and took pride in the quality of the work. We are extremely happy with working with Twelve 12, not just for how beautiful our renovation turned out but the peace of mind that the Oliver and Jeremy would do everything to make sure we were 100% satisfied.

The work we contacted Red Brick Construction consisted of a number of smaller and time-consuming tasks which many other companies didn't wish to undertake or their price was over our budget. Erem demonstrated great leadership and project managed our project with great precision. Erem collaborated with all parties and showed excellent communication skills from start to finish. The work was completed in a timely manner and he answered all my questions and concerns. They did an excellent job. We would definitely recommend his work and use him again.

Excellent job!! 1) He showed up on time, which unfortunately is sometimes not the case with contractors, 2) He was very professional and courteous, 3) He said he was going to take an hour to get the job done, after 50 minutes everything was assembled and trash in a bag. Would definitely recommend him and will contract him anytime I need help. Such a good experience after a few bad ones hiring through Thumbtack!

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 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.  

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 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
