Juan did an incredible job! He is very professional and provides quality service. I always worry about the quality of service, especially when it comes to construction in my home, however I could tell Juan knows what he is doing and he doesn't take short cuts. He does the job thoroughly and EFFICIENTLY. I got two ceiling fans installed on my patio, beforehand I joked with my husband that I don't want the fans to wobble since they drop down, but they are sturdy and steadfast, as Juan put them on high as soon as he finished and I've had them going all day. I read the reviews before I booked JLD Services and I want to tell you to go ahead and book if you want great handiwork that you will be satisfied with. 😃

I couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one I had with Modern Aztec Construction LLC. I hired them to repair my driveway, and through every step of the process they provided nothing but exceptional, professional, and outstanding service. Esaul & Hippolito were two of the nicest, most dependable, punctual contractors I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I will definitely be calling Modern Aztec for any work I might need in the future. You can count on these guys!

When contacting Realta Remodeling services I knew they were the company for my needs. I was very stressed and anxious about the work plaid before me, but after the free estimation the owner gave me a sense of security knowing that it would be taken car of. Somethings popped up along the way, but they took it in stride. I would use this company again without hesitation.

Our house flooded in the May 2015 Houston flood and we chose Precision Construction to do the water damage repairs. One word - AMAZING. Tom, the owner, gave a very detailed and easy to read quote/bid for work and said he had experience dealing with insurance and would help us through that. Throughout the renovation, Tom was always available to answer questions we had about the house and how things were going. He gave us amazing recommendations on where to buy materials such as granite countertops, brick for our exterior, and our flooring. It was great to have somewhere other than Lowes to go to for our material needs! Our insurance company tried to low ball us by paying $x/sqft for flooring and sheet rock, and Tom helped get us more money by educating us on the industry standard pricing for work and helped us be prepared to ask for more from insurance. We did, and it worked! The timeline for work was given in an honest and straightforward manner. Tom is very organized and was able to keep his crews on our projected timeline (which is a rarity with construction projects!) We had such a positive experience that if our house ever floods again, we will go with Precision Construction again no questions asked.

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!

We own a commercial property where I needed a remodeling crew quickly to repair our metal roof, remodel many tenant units, fix siding, paint, patch, move air conditioning units, fix door jams, gutters, plumbing, and more. I received quotes from 4 different vendors via Thumbtack. All of the vendors were good, but Campos was head and shoulders above the rest. First, his estimates came over quickly and his prices were great. Second, he takes immense pride in his work and the quality of work completed was above our expectations. Third, his communication before, during, and after the job was stellar. All jobs were completed on time or earlier. Many times he was able to start the same day or the next day. I cannot recommend Campos and his team highly enough for projects big or small. I have had other professionals review his work and they have agreed that Campos does great work for a great price. You will not be disappointed if you hire Campos Construction!

Johnny and his crew took out a wall in our home. They showed up exactly as expected and did a wonderful job. This is not your typical remodeling company, they care! After the perfect job was complete, the crew dusted my shelves, swept the floor, and mopped! Can you say "customer service"?! I would highly recommend Johnny Jensen and his crew. Thanks for a job very well done!

My experience with Reza was the best experience I have ever had with any contractor! When I hired Reza we were in the process of preparing our house to sell. We had a long list of items that needed to be done, and were on a tight timeframe to hit our planned listing date. Not only did Reza complete everything on the list and exceed my expectations in terms of quality, communication and cleanliness, but he also identified and resolved several issues with our house that we hadn't previously discussed. Even though he went above and beyond the scope of our agreement, he still honored the original quote without hesitation and completed all of the tasks on time. The best part of working with Reza is how genuine and trustworthy he is. He took a genuine interest in ensuring our house was ready to sell and took ownership of the work because he cares about his customers. I'm disappointed that I'm moving out of the area because I finally found a contractor I can trust to do work that meets and exceeds my standards. If I ever own property in this area again, I will definitely hire Reza for all of my handyman and painting needs!

Xclusive Residential Construction and Remodeling (Jeffery Young) came by the following day after I placed my search for a contractor. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge and gave me what I felt was a very competitive quote, even though it was the first one I received. I also had three other contractors come by and they submitted quotes as well. Two of the four quotes were very close...one extremely high....and one extremely low....Mr. Young's quote was the second highest. I trusted Mr. Young's opinion...his knowledge of what I wanted done...and the reputation and positive reviews of his company. The process only took two days....they cleaned up after themselves and removed the old debris....bottom-line, they did exactly what I wanted them to do. Mr. Young is very personal...it's not about money, it's about getting professional work done. I would definitely recommend Xclusive Residential Construction and Remodeling at the highest level....

Amazing Dezign by Simon O. is a company filled with master craftsman who can bring any vision to light. We were very specific in our needs and they exceeded our expectations. We hired them to design, build, and finish two white oak tables and a coat rack for my son’s room. All three pieces came out stunning and are beautifully designed. Their work speaks for itself and looks very high end. Our goal was to have our furniture look like it belonged in a designer showroom and the pieces they created look top of the line. We shopped around a lot before going with them and other companies were either much more expensive or could not guarantee us the outcome we were looking for. Simon guided us through the whole process, made us feel at ease, and delivered more than we expected. The best decision we ever made was going with Amazing Dezign and we will definitely be using them again for other projects.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
