These guys were really nice, affordable and fast. While many would be reticent about a delay, which did occur in this case. I work in a commercial environment, and I understand that a good contractors schedules will vary because they will stick around at a site to make sure things are done right. The delay was short and not repetitive. They kept in touch and arrived right on time. They had my TV installed fast and made sure to troubleshoot the job before leaving. They pointed out that the TV looked crooked; a fact they could have let me notice after they left and immediately found that the problem was with the crown molding and not their job and went so far as to place a level on each for me to see the issue so that I could have it corrected by my complex. When it came time to pay I realized that I only had a debit card which they couldn't accept. They patiently waited while an ATM was visited so that they could be paid. The most important part is that they were professional and easy going. I will definitely call them back when I move again to reinstall the TV and for any other install that comes up. Kudos to BluStar!

I thought my garbage disposal was shot, but he showed up and fixed it within 10 minutes; saving me the cost of the new disposal I just purchased. He was responsive, on-time, and very knowledgeable. Kevin gave me tips on how to maintain the existing disposal and general house plumbing. I found our plumber!

Brandon is awesome! He replaced 2 hanging light fixtures and 2 recessed can lights with track lighting fixtures at our office. He knocked it out in a couple hours even though we were missing a bracket and he had to run to Home Depot, he only added a $10 fee for the trip. I received 3 quotes from other electricians before going with Brandon, all saying the job would be really difficult and quoted me outrageous amounts. He came in, took a look and sent me an extremely reasonable quote. A lot of times companies will hike up prices for commercial jobs especially at a doctor's office. He did such a great job, not to mention he cleaned the site after having to do drywall work, that we paid him more than he charged. I highly recommend using HiiPower electric. Great work!

Manny was great and easy to work with. I hired him to install mirrors and flooring in our garage to convert to a home gym. The mirrors are professional gym quality and the flooring looks great! He even did me a favor and hung a curtain rod at no charge. I would definitely hire him again!

He is a dream come true. We've hired many contractors in the past and have ALWAYS had a problem that had to be dealt with. This was not so for Manuel. He's very professional and very clear about what he will do and exactly how much it will cost. He is extremely careful to keep furniture and floors clean and safe. His prices are extremely reasonable. We will always call him first for any other jobs we need done. Great guy!!!

Fina Ross guided us through a major remodel of our master bath, giving us the unique, old world style retreat that we always wanted. We love it every day. We have even had visitors who come back to our house with friends just to show them our bathroom. Other contractors lacked the vision, creativity, artistry and know how help us, and Fina Ross stood out right away as a contractor willing to go the extra mile and bring ingenuity, craftsmanship, and cost-consciousness to a big project. She spent hours walking us through choices and drawing sketches until we had exactly the look we wanted. She wraps design skills into every step of her projects at no extra charge, and that alone puts her head and shoulders above the rest. Additionally, she is relentlessly committed to customer satisfaction. She took every one of our phone calls, responded ot all emails, made herself available for meetings at any time that was convenient for us, AND applied the same level of service to the few minor issues we had after the job was finished and after she and been fully paid.

I needed to have 16 linear ft of interior wall removed to open up the house. Additionally, there would be new drywall and repair requirements, flooring, and paint to finish the project. Jim was not the cheapest of the 3 quotes that were offered, but, as an experienced home builder for 30+ years, he impressed, was methodical and scientific in his project approach, is insured, and the pictures of the work that was completed in his portfolio were great. The project did have scope creep, and the cost adjustments were transparent and fair. The project came out to my satisfaction. Professional, meticulous, OCD (it’s great for a contractor), polite, and trustworthy; both individually and in his resourcing and supervision of subcontractors for the areas not under his direct scope (floor and paint). I would also like to add, that during this project, I unfortunately broke my tibia, being immobilized till now. Jim was courteous, ensured area safety, cleanliness, and even when I needed personal aid (an occasional run to the fast food joint) he did it. He cares about his work and his clients.

After this experience, I wouldn’t hire anyone else! Geronimo was a true professional, payed attention to detail, thorough, and even made sure his subcontractors did work that was up to his company’s high standards. He even took on the job of painting our house when his guy didn’t show up. Talk about service!! Also, he is very easy to work with and knows how to communicate to understand what the customer needs. All the work was done in a FLASH!! If you need A+ roofing or general contractor help in Austin/Round Rock, look no further!

I was very satisfied with the Onyx shower and vanity installation in two bathrooms. My rating and hiring of Felipe was based on pictures of installation of other showers that he had done. Secondly, that not many contractors are versed with the installation of this type of material. Lastly, the tile and paint work that was done was to my satisfaction. The only problem encountered was the delay in getting sheetrock workers for work that had to be done prior to starting the job.

Superior work done in a flash. Joe and his crew were professional and on time. They repaired and painted some superficial cracks in three rooms of my home. They have scaffolding and can match the paint for your interior.

My guy is better than your guy! Jose was punctual which is very important to me. He was able to explain to me why I had to take back the trim I had purchased and get something different. Very professional. But the kicker was his work. WOW. I was amazed at his attention to detail and his precision. He replaced trim throughout my home and you could not tell he was there. NO mess. I was very impressed with him. Would definitely hire him again.

I had a sudden water leakage from my bathroom faucet, which destroyed the ceiling of the unit below. Also, it turned out that there has been a gradual water leakage which significantly damaged the wooden subfloor structure. I interviewed three contractors including Ken (MD Contracting). One of them could not do it because the scale of the job was beyond his capacity and another one wanted to do a $1500-demolition just to give me a precise estimate. My neighbor found him through his employee who had a very positive experience with Ken. Ken ended up doing my bathroom and the unit below and he gave us reasonable quotes. He is professional and responded to my questions promptly (This was important because I live in NY, and he worked on my investment property in Austin, TX). I strongly recommend Ken as a general contractor, and I will contact him again if I ever need home improvement 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.
