I had a deck built from a "contractor" I found on Home Advisor. This contractor did a horrible job and my wife and I just didn't think it was safe for our family. Scott came out and gave me a very fair bid for fixing the problems and making it look amazing! He explained everything that was unsound and that needed to be fixed. He was here when he said and talked me through the whole process. He made me feel like I priority and not another job just to get to the next. There isn't one thing I would change about the work he did! I highly recommend Scott and we will definetly hire him for our future projects!

Bruce and his son Jake are great. Communication was awesome, and they started two days after giving me the quote. I had seven other contractors bid on our garage foundation, driveway, and patio. Bruce was very competitive and very knowledgeable. He took the time to explain how he would approach it, and his years of experience were obvious. I have 100% confidence that I made the right choice.

This guy is awesome! He came in and installed my fan within an hour! The best part about this whole thing was he responded to me very quickly when he was running late he let me know. I'm a contractor in Roofing and communication is huge to me! I will be using him for future jobs and also using him for some of my inside work on my own jobs that I get. Keep up the good work and keep your good communication. Anybody who needs a good handyman should hire this guy. Thank you for your awesome work I look forward to doing more business with you in the future!

Chris came over this evening to fix my bathtub faucet. He was extremely kind and knew exactly what needed to be done. He didn’t waste any time fixing the problem! Even though it was a late appointment for him, he showed up with a smile and an overall positive demeanor. I’ll definitely be using Cransten again for home repairs!

I am not usually home when handymen usually want to come to my house because I work 8-5, but Christian came at 7:30 before I had to go to work so that I could show him around and he could give me a quote. Will update if I end up working with him.

Todd is extremely responsive and will make sure the job gets done well! When I requested a handyman, I received 2 quotes, 1 from Todd and another from a "Top Pro". The Top Pro was extremely unresponsive and very unprofessional. Todd should be considered a Top Pro because he responded back right away, was always on time, and did the job quickly and better than any handyman in the area. I highly recommend Todd for any handyman projects you need done! Thanks Todd!

We have done a lot of remodeling of our home and Steve was one of the best contractors to work with. Steve replaced our existing driveway and also poured an rv pad. I was impressed by steve's professionalism and his flexibility. He was able to show up on a Friday evening short notice to give us a bid. He called the day before he was scheduled to start to confirm and answer any questions. He would provide updates each day about his status and what to expect. His work was quality and it looks great. I would recommend him to anyone. I would recommend you pick Steve for any concrete needs, you won't regret it.

I had hired another contractor (J & M painting) but he was extremely unprofessional and was changing everything he had promised. I told him he had to do what we had agreed and he just left. So, I found Niagra. Even though Niagara already had jobs, that very day he came to start on my project. And, he charged less, and did even more He is very qualified and I would highly recommend him. In fact. I already have.

We just had our basement finished by Centurion and we couldn't be happier. From the very beginning, they set themselves apart from the other contractors that provided us an estimate. During the initial estimate, Aaron was professional and friendly (qualities that he would continue to exhibit throughout the entire build.) Additionally, and what I appreciated the most above all of the other contractors, the quote that they provided was detailed and itemized and made us feel very comfortable that there would not be any hidden costs and we would get exactly what we wanted. They were also very patient with us and were flexible when we needed to make changes and, even with those changes and disruptions, they were still very close to meeting their original deadline.

Verified review

My mom told her interior designer that I approve of her cabinet maker, and then noted “and coming from Shaun, that says a lot.” It does say a lot. I’m a “Best of Show” woodworker who since college hasn’t done much with woodworking, but a fine artist and very picky. I’m not easily pleased and prefer to do work to have it done right, as even many professionals I’ve found disappointment in. Michael has proved to be a guy I would relish to have around in my own creative circles, and if I ever did custom home or furniture building, I’d want him close to collaborate and perhaps be part? Why? He’s got the passion and the love for quality, fine craftsmanship, wieshmanship. He’s an artist and his love of his craft make him a rare find. In due course, he’ll cost a lot of money for his expertise in creating beautiful things with wood. As I work on this kitchen remodel for my mom, he’s right there open to amazing ideas and has collaborated on great design points. My mother loves the lazy Suzan cabinets that make much better use of space than the 1964 constructed cabinets now being replaced. Micheal is perfectionistic and likes a high quality end result. I appreciate that much, and value him highly as someone to consult with on design and woodwork.

Manny has been a great contractor for my remodeling project. He has taken my husband under his wing teaching him about construction while he works alongside him. Our project would be at a standstill if it wasn't for this company's willingness to do work on any type of remodeling project.

I really liked the genuine honesty of the gentlemen. They were down right fair and upfront. They have a vested interest in helping us save money and went above and beyond to help us cut costs where we could. I was so impressed and not only have I referred them, I have also asked them for more bids on other projects in my home. I'm so glad I found Fixango!

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.
