What a great find this person was! He will be our number 1 handy man from now on. He was very eager to perform the tasks And very pleasant to boot. He even discovered another problem and went to Home Depot to buy the part and replace - and the cost is reasonable!

Quoted me $59 am hour to install 2 new faucets (other bids were $150 a faucet and $85 a faucet.). He installed the two faucets in 1 hour and 15 mins. Total cost $73. He called when he was 30 minutes out, got straight to work, did the job completely, and left the bathroom clean. Definitely recommend!

I had a leak at the base of my toilet. He responded very quickly. He came by the next day and took a look to confirm it. He was available the next day to repair it. Cost was reasonable & work was done in a timely manner! He also provided me with the receipt for the parts that were needed!

Gerardo is a gem, and I will definitely hire him again, and recommend him to anyone looking for a handyman. I am amazed at all the different jobs he can do from plumbing, painting, caulking, washing windows, power washing house, etc. Gerardo worked hard repairing a small crack in my ceiling and matching the paint, so I wouldn't have the expense of repainting the whole ceiling. He did the same touch up paint on walls and cabinets throughout the house, and epoxy painted my white refrigerator to make it look brand new. He and his partner worked many hours to make sure everything I asked them to do was done correctly and that I was completely satisfied. The cost of his work is very reasonable too! Gerardo not only did an outstanding job, but he was very dependable. He completed the job in two days, arrived on schedule, and called each time that he was on his way. Gerardo is a very kind and respectable man, and I highly recommend him!

Kyle did a thorough inspection in attic and on roof to locate possible cause of small leak. I feel repairs cost were reasonable, especially since it includes a leak warranty. Thank you, Kyle.

I can not say enough about Rueben. He and his crew have been very professional, and do excellent quality work. I felt that the way he communicated about what to expect left no room for surprise extra costs! And that is valuable to me. We have run into some issues about ordering the wrong doors, but it was totally my fault. But in dealing with it, I appreciate his response in helping me deal with it in order to make my clients happy. His work ethic is about making it right. I would recommend this company for sure and will always use them.

Woke up on a Saturday morning to our A/C not working. Roman responded quickly and was squeezed us in early in the morning before a full installation job he had later in the morning. He explained everything he was doing to help us understand what exactly was broken. At first he feared the worst - that our unit needed replacing - but he kept looking until he figured out a much lower cost part is all that needed replacing. Very honest and fair. Highly recommend.

He was able to meet my immediate schedule request and perform various tasks such as basic plumbing and woodwork that reduced additional resources. Although a small repair, he was thorough in addressing my problem concerns and communicated his two phase approach and two day schedule but did not change his cost estimate.

This was a fairly large existing circular drive (~1600 SQFT) that was replaced with stamped concrete. In addition, we needed to repair the flagstone patio around our pool. My experience was very positive from start of the project to finish. Nepote was very professional in providing the initial proposal and explaining the project, options and schedule. His project crew was on schedule and completed the project on time and on budget even I made several changes to the design and concrete color during the project. Nepote even agreed to do some additional work at minimal cost while the team was there. He was trustworthy, very flexible and responsive to our needs throughout. I was pleased with the final outcome of our stamped color concrete patio!

Aisha was hands-on throughout the entire design, construction and completion of our master bathroom remodel. Her vision for our project was amazing - and she and her team turned our master bathroom into something I never imagined was possible. Perhaps most important, she was respectful of our budget. We're absolutely thrilled with the quality of the results, and we'll be hiring her again without any hesitation!

Alex seems very knowledgeable and talented. The overhead storage rack in the garage was installed within a few hours with efficiency and quality work. His experience and feedback was critical to determine the most appropriate location for the racks, which he provided with confidence. I will definitely be requesting his services for my future projects at home and work, as he is very experienced in his craft, reasonable in cost and mostly, reliable as a business in service industry.

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.

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.
