I contacted multiple contractors for major home renovation in Pearland. Out of all those Juan Perez JLD services stands out. He took his time to explain everything, provided me with places to buy material at wholesale prices and did a great job. He did my wood flooring, tile, carpet, kitchen/bathroom quartz, vanities, garage export, patio tile etc. His whole team is amazing. I am very happy with his services and glad that I found Juan Perez and will definitely used his services in the future. Don’t hesitate to hire him for all your home renovation needs.

I had a side garage door installed and I was extremely pleased with the results! Not only was it installed perfectly, but he also painted it too. I would have had to paint the door myself if I had chosen another contractor. He also put on the locks. The quality of work was outstanding and the price was great too!

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!

John was very informative and explained to me what I needed and not needed. This help me make sure I didn't make any unnecessary repairs. Not many contractors do this. He provided me before and after pictures before enclosing off the area he repaired so that I can be rest assured the repair was done. Although not the cheapest, he was worth the extra cost to make sure it was done right.

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!

Perfect experience with Tell Projects. Worst experience with one of their contractors. 1st let me say that I give 5 stars to Tell Projects for my sunroom renovation. Everything went perfect from the estimate to the final project. I also wanted my bathroom renovated and decided to use Tell Project's contractor Luis Moreno. He told me he could do the renovation for cheaper than the estimate I was given by Tell Projects (HE LIED), after he started the bathroom renovation EVERYTHING was considered "extra" and this is where the DISASTER started. I had to not only purchase the glass shower door, vanity, and the closet door on my own, but he also asked for more money because he claimed he spent alot of money on the tile "he insisted on picking the tile for the shower". He used kitchen plumbing under my vanity sink (leaked after 1st day), his "father in law" installed my shower faucet backwards ( I now get burned when I turn the water off), AND all of my tools are missing because they kept using my tools and never returned them. I knew this was a disaster when I walked in and saw the person installing the shower door watching a YOUTUBE video on how to install it. In the end, I had to hire a plumber to install the plumbing under my sink, a shower door specialist to re-install the shower door so that it closes properly, and apply silicon for the leaks around the shower door. DO NOT use LUIS MORENO for any projects! He never finished my bathroom and took my money without finishing the job. I have nothing but good words for Tell Projects. But don't use their contractor Luis Moreno. You will be sorry!

Will contacted me within minutes of my post. He came to my house on a Sunday afternoon to give me a final price. He had already given me an estimate over the phone. He brought samples to the house for my wife to choose from. The deal was done in about 30 minutes. I have worked as a contractor for years in the past. I recognized that Will had the ability to handle a lot of things going on at once. I let him know I understood what he has to deal with and that I had a lot of respect for contractors who could juggle things like I seen he has to do. My assessment of W.C. Granite works is based on all aspects of the experience. Last of which is going to be the installation of the granite. My wife and I felt comfortable with the crew he sent. They were very proficient at what they were doing. They were careful around the house. They communicated well with us. I had an immediate sense of trust towards them. The next time I have Granite work to do I will be calling Will for sure.

Oscar of All-Pro Sevices did an amazing job installing our sod and replacing landscape timbers. His work is great, he is on time,on budget and he has fair prices too. In addition to that he was able to work around our other contractors... He is also very knowledgeable about other home and garden projects. I wish I met him sooner!

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.

Houston Flooring and Remodeling (HFR) recently completed a shower re-build for me. I am a practicing architect, so I am somewhat familiar with the entire construction process. Overall, HFR did a very good job on my project. Katrina showed up when she said she would, followed up when she said she would, and had her crew on site without any missed days. You would be surprised how rare that is in the residential contracting world. Based on my experience, I would recommend Katrina and HFR to others considering them for a small to moderate renovation project. I am also very satisfied with the quality of the work they did, and actually had nothing for the punch list - even though I am very picky and demanding in that respect. Good job HFR!

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.

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.
