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 had Blast build a custom accent wall piece for our Master bedroom. I had the pattern drawn out in Autocad with dimensions and angles to help aid the work being done. Blast did a great job turning my design on paper, to a work of art on our wall. My wife and I were very happy with his work. I would use his services again on my next project.

They did an excellent job on a make ready for one of our rental properties. They were efficient and did an excellent job considering they started with a house covered in construction dust. We will definitely be using them for all of our rental properties.

I had all but wonderful experience with PES construction on their roofing job. The quote was detailed with all the explanation of what to expect and what's the pricing of the labor and materials used(breaking down to what materials used further) and the men were really punctual and worked all day and finished the whole roof in 2 days. I am definitely recommending them to my friends. True professionals with neat job.

Nice guy, knows a lot about Construction. He was faced with a pretty large job and completed it successfully. He did everything from demo work to redesign, plumbing and tile work. He did install one tile that was chipped on the edge but it is barely noticeable. I'm pretty sure he would come out and replace it if I called him, because he's that kind of guy. He worked with our schedule and priced the job below my other bids. Trustworthy, and I would use him again.

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.

We had their team add a laundry room into a quarter of our garage. They came out and got us a fair estimate in days, and finished the job a week and a half after starting. They work effectively and understandable. They were more than responsive to some of the edits and additions we had along the way. We couldn't be happier with the job they did. Most important: they answered any and all questions we had while they worked about ANYTHING they did. As a person who like knowing how things work, the fact that they took the time to break things down and provide explanations for things, was huge. We have a few more projects we plan to have them do, simply because they are great guys that do great work!

Anybody with a roof deck or balcony knows the problems that can show up. Mine was rotten, and had serious issues related to the original construction. Jack fixed them and made mine much, much better than it ever was. He turned a sore point of the house into on of the best. Carpentry, water sealing, aesthetics - all top notch. He takes pride in his work and takes no short cuts. Jack will be back to my house, for sure, to complete other projects.

I am more than pleased with the master bathroom remodel that Twelve/12 created for me. The two owners of the company, Oliver and Jeremy, are a dynamic duo who successfully guided the project from planning to completion. Oliver met with me several times at the planning stage to to determine exactly what my vision was. His knowledge, patience, and understanding helped us create a workable plan within my budget that included all the features I wanted plus some touches that I hadn't even thought of. Then Jeremy took charge of the construction and brought the plan to life. He is a perfectionist and ensured that every detail of the work was done to the highest standards. We established a project schedule and they stuck to it. On the day that the countertop crew was in my driveway, cutting the quartz to fit, it began raining heavily. Rather than lose a day, Jeremy made a quick run to Walmart, purchased a canopy, erected it on the driveway to protect them and their saws and the work continued. The beauty and functionality of the final product exceeded my expectations and the project cost was very reasonable for the quality of the work. I highly recommend them for any remodeling project you may be considering.

It is a rare experience indeed when you're genuinely happy working with a contractor. I recently had a new roof installed and needed to get some fascia boards replaced. Big Tyme Construction (Cory) came out to assess the work needed. He sent me a written estimate the next day. Big Tyme crew showed up the next rain-free day. I was very impressed and appreciative of the care they took working around my brand new shingles. Truth be told, the fascia board work should've been done before the roof install but that didn't deter Big Tyme crew from getting the job done to my satisfaction. They went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. I highly recommend BigTyme Construction.

I had J & S contractors work on my forever home a few months ago. Let me begin with saying that my home turned out to be everything I have ever dreamed of. I cannot begin to express how much of a well job Mr. Vazquez did. This is a wholesome and reliable contractor that truly love the work that they do. All I had to do was speak the image I had and Mr. V. did the rest. He was so informative and through when explaining what need to be done, how it would be done, and also why it needed to be done that way. See, my husband & I are not too knowledgeable on this front so having his clarity & transparency made me feel much more at ease. The whole crew was amazing, they all worked diligently and were very respectful to my home. I cannot express enough how great the result were. I would highly recommend J&S for your contracting needs, you will not be disappointed!

So glad we hired MG! I had a project that a contractor could easily have tried to make into a bigger job than it was, and MG didn’t play that game at all! These are honest guys and were reasonable on price. Would recommend!

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
