Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

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 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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Riverstone renovators
Thumbtack Customer
Our family was very impressed with the professionalism of Big State Renovations and Construction. They were timely in responding to my request for an estimate. They were always punctual in arriving to do the work. The quality of the renovation work that they did was outstanding! Their prices were reasonable compared to other contractors. I would absolutely hire them to do renovation work in my home again.

This is truly the best renovation crew I have every worked. Anybody can install things. The question is what do you when you have problems. Their ability to diagnose and deliver is the best in Houston. Look no further.

The designer I worked with was absolutely standout, helped me stay in budget and still get the look I was after. I was thoroughly pleased with the bathroom renovation completed by this team. If you're looking for quality, I would consider getting a free estimate from this company.

I had a total interior renovation on my rental house. Katrina did a great job. She was very responsive and professional. She went above and beyond her job to help me with other things. I definitely will work with her again in the future.

About a year ago, while searching online for a general contractor to renovate a home of mine, I came across Brivenca Builders and decided to take a chance and hire them to do the job. It was a 2600 sq.ft. home in a high rise building and we completely gutted it and rebuilt it. Fast forward one year, and we have now completed three projects together. Edwin and his team are professional, timely, meticulous, and very easy to work with. I have always been able to rely on them to manage, and get the job done, and done right. I have worked with other General Contractors over the years who are a little less expensive, but, I have learned that you get what you pay for, and in many instances, I end up paying more in the long run trying to fix their mistakes. I highly recommend Brivenca to anyone looking for a full service, professional company for their renovation needs.

Ido and his team did a wonderful completely remodeling our entire first floor mainly the Kitchen area. All the team members were great and friendly and even came back after the fact for a few touch ups. They turned everything around in the time they promised and gave us everything we have ever wanted in our kitchen. I highly recommend them for any renovation!

I had called three Thumbtack pros to do my porch and patio projects but to me the GEI RENOVATION showed how “estimation” on a project needs to be done. Ido came over and he spent some time discussing the projects with me. What I liked about it was, he gave me good ideas on how he would do them, showed me pictures of his completed similar projects and the most credible of all was he SAT DOWN AND WROTE EVERY DETAIL OF HIS WORK IN WRITING. I did not have to wait just like the other two pros that came over when they told me to “wait” which took weeks for them to do. There is a saying that “first impression lasts forever”. Well, I can say that just by what Ido showed me the first time when he gave me an estimate, my mind was made up already that I would HIRE him for the job which I did!👌🏼Hopefully, he will do a good job which I know he would, because simply his doing an estimate alone is worth commending already to potential clients in the future and I know if I refer him, I will not be embarrased for doing so. Keep it up GEI RENOVATION! You have earned my trust!👌🏼👍🏻

Adrian and his team gave me a very competitive bid and did excellent work. I am very pleased with the outcome. He was also very accommodating of my schedule and responsive to my requests. He also paid special attention to any requests I had as they came up during the job, even though they were not part of the original bid. He just let me know if it could be done and adjusted the bid. His crew was also very courteous and accommodating. Email correspondence with invoicing was very prompt. I highly recommend him and Vene Renovations. Included a few before and after pictures.

This is a long overdue review, but we just bought our first house in June, 2020. I shortlisted a number of contractors and although he is not the cheapest, I decided to go with GEI and Ido for their positive reviews on Google and Thumbtack. I appreciate that he's willing to work with my changing requests in the middle of a stressful pandemic and his crew did a great job in some of our most important projects: replacing our bowed ceiling and siding, as well as painting the new siding. Although we only met a couple of times, communication was not an issue, and after speaking with his crew, I can see that he did a good job in treating his employees well which earned him their respect that translated to quality workmanship. One important thing that I wished I had known was that they do not work on Saturday, which I fully respect that, but it has delayed our project and costed us a few days in hotel because they tore up the ceiling on Thursday/Friday and it was idle on the weekend. Had I known about it before, I would asked them to start the ceiling project on Monday so everything is done in one week. Overall, I am happy with their delivery and would recommend you to at least check him out for your renovation projects.
