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.

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. 

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.

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.

A pleasure to work with. Jeff and his team did a beautiful job renovating our walkout basement space. Great design sense. Competitive pricing for high-quality work.

We had water damage in our basement ceiling and couldn’t figure out how or why. After contacting several companies Trust promptly responded (on a Saturday evening). My wife spoke with Carlos and he set up an appointment to come out next day (Sunday) to take a look at the leak. He was on time and professional. He came and took a look and assessed that the damage was coming from a piece outside our upstairs backdoor that had not been properly installed before we moved in. The piece wasn’t slanted enough to let heavy rain water run off and instead was leaking into the doorframe (which was rotted) and down into the basement hence the water spots in the basement. Carlos was able to replace the door frame the next day and got new drywall installed all within a day. They returned the following day to touch up paint and gave us the cutest little mat for the back porch as a thank you. These gentlemen were a pleasure to work with and gave a fair price. We will def use them in the future for other projects. We appreciated their quick turnaround time and customer friendly service!

We had Jorge work on our basement-replace drywall, remove wainscoting, install a sink, patch the ceiling & paint. Jorge was great to work. He’s very quick to respond to texts or phone calls. He showed up to the job site every morning to review the work to be done for the day. After the job was complete he did a walk thru to ensure all work was done to our satisfaction.
