Because of a scheduling quirk in a kitchen remodeling project, we needed some spot demolition while our contractor was out of town. Dante took care of this work in outstanding fashion. 1. His crew did the work efficiently, safely, and carefully. Even though they were removing plaster, they were able to leave the site immaculate after taking the wall down. 2. Dante always responded in incredibly timely fashion, immediately answering all my e-mails, arriving early for the estimate and work appointments, and finishing the job for us on a very tight schedule. 3. FamilyBiz's estimate was very reasonable, almost half my other estimates. I recommend Dante wholeheartedly.

RB Contractor Inc. finished our basement project that included drywall finishing, shower installation, bathroom flooring and wall reconstruction. Remberto and his team did a tremendous job of finishing the drywall, taping, mudding and sanding. The team also custom built our shower with tile and put in the tile flooring as well. The completed job far exceeds our expectations and Remberto and his team were professional, timely and did an amazing job. We highly recommend this company for any basement remodeling/finishing.

We had a long list of things to be done before listing our home for sale. Jenrii with Ordonez Home Improvement did an excellent job tackling every project. Jenrii enclosed the landing where we had removed a handicap ramp - this was not an easy repair and required good carpentry skills. He also installed new closet wood bi-fold doors in a basement bedroom. Again, not an easy task as they had to be “fitted” to the closet. His troubleshooting skills were evident here. He replaced two old light switches, four electric outlets, and a bathroom vanity light fixture. These were only a few of the things he did. Jenrii is very professional, polite, thorough, and responsive. He texted us each morning on the days he worked to let us know what time to expect him. He works quickly and does excellent work for extremely reasonable rates. I would not HESITATE to recommend him for small jobs to larger remodeling projects. I was a commercial real estate project manager for 15 yrs, building shopping centers and office buildings - so I can definitively say that Jenrri knows what he is doing and does it very, very well.

We hired Erick's service for deep cleaning our house prior to listing it for sale. Previous experiences with other cleaning services have been hit or miss so we were a bit anxious, given that a good cleaning job is really important for the house to show well for sale. I cannot praise Erick's team of two women (his family in part) enough for the cleaning job they did in our house. I will give you specific examples which portray their exceptional work - 1. we recently touched up paint on the walls and a few drops probably spilled on the floor. His crew went down on the floor to scrub minute drops off while vacuuming/mopping our hardwood floor; 2. They took out the glass receptacles off the light fixtures and washed them to make them appear new (and they never were so clean when we lived in the house!). 3. They opened the windows and dusted and wiped off dirt from the outside of the window. 4. Bathrooms and kitchen with granite counter top were spotless and shiny! We believe the house shows very well to make the best impression for potential buyers. I will strongly recommend Erick and his team for cleaning services, and actually like the fact that it is a small, family run venture as opposed to the large scale cleaning services. SLV

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

K&A flooring did an incredible job on some beaten up oak flooring. Erika maintained communication throughout the project, showed up promptly and the crew did an excellent job. the floors look better than new. All of our furniture was back in place and the house was move in ready. The job was value priced, professionally done and move in ready What more can you ask?

They showed up on time to replace a series of irregularly-shaped broken tiles. As the broken towels were removed the job expanded as other tiles were not holding in place due to poor craftsmanship on the part of the previous installers. . Due to this, the labor cost had to increase. The price increase was reasonable and the length of the job on a Saturday was also reasonable.

Nice work. Had a bunch of odd jobs around a rental property. Painting, grout repair, plumbing, etc. They were able to come next day, were on time, completed the job in the timeframe we had discussed and it was all done well.

I have used B2B on 3 occasions thus far. Brown-Bey is amazing! I'm so glad that I am found him on Thumbtack. I recently moved into a renovated house. Unfortunately, the plumber hired by the flipper was terrible. Brown-Bey efficiently and professionally corrected or helped troubleshoot issues left over from the former plumber. Brown-Bey is an excellent communicator and highly dependable. His prices are very reasonable compared to other plumbers yet his work is top notch quality. I will definitely continue to use him for my plumbing needs. I highly recommend him for any plumbing job!

Stuart Richardson from Scottie Contracting has done a lot of work for us over the past 10 years or so, to include the total remodeling of two masters bathrooms (different houses); installation of a couple of tile floors; installation of a wood floor; repair of a broken water pipe; repair of damaged drywall; electrical wiring; installation of a water heater; deck repair; and a lot of painting. He has always been very cooperative and professional, and has always been reasonably priced. My Wife and I would highly recommend Stuart to anyone needing any type of home repair or construction.

I hired New Vision Properties Construction Services to remodel my kitchen. It badly needed work and had to be completely gutted. New Vision Properties provided outstanding service and high-quality work--they finished my project on schedule, kept me appraised of progress and were very transparent about costs. Richard and his crew were courteous and very professional. My new kitchen looks great, and I plan to re-hire them for my next remodeling project.

Alex and his team did an excellent job with remodeling my bathroom. They finished 2 days early and arrived on time daily. I appreciated the ongoing communication about my project and his helpful demeanor. I absolutely love my bathroom and would refer Alex to my neighbors/friends/family. I definitely plan to use his again in the near future for other projects. Thanks Alex!!!

We recently had a mold issue at our residence, and being new home owners with a young child we were very concerned. We found Eugene through thumbtack and explained what our problem was. He was very professional and proposed what he thought would be a solution to the problem, not just a bandaid. On his advice we signed up for an energy audit. We went forward with Eugene from the information received on the energy audit and his initial thoughts. Not only did Eugene fix the problem but he also helped make our home much more energy efficient in the process. A few of the major things he facilitated was to fix insulation issues in our basement / attic, provide solutions and contractors to fix our HVAC system (Which had a 50% loss on the way upstairs), and to install an ERV system to provide fresh oxygen not only at the source, but through the entire house. Our HVAC is now running much better and our indoor air quality is superb. Eugene has helped provide a safe environment for my family to live and grow in. I would definitely recommend his expertise in building science to anyone. Eugene will help find the source of the issue and start there, rather than a quick patch job that will need to be redone in the future.

I did not hire this company because their estimate was one of the highest in comparison to other 10+ licensed/insured contractors I met. While I did not hire them, they were responsive and offered designing advice which I appreciated but disagreed with :) I can't speak to the quality of their work, but the consult was fine. Received estimate in timely manner as well. Thanks for coming in.

The quality of the work was exceptionally good! Luis had already considered the renovation of my kitchen from every angle and worked out almost all the possibilities, and the new flooring and paint job make a real difference in what was a pretty drab kitchen. I would gladly do business with this company again; prices were very reasonable, the work was professional and working with Luis was a pleasure! Beth P, Fairfax, VA

My husband and I have done renovations on a couple of properties on our own, but I was looking for some assistance with this latest renovation since my husband was deployed. The difference between how this renovation went in comparison to those is shocking – in a good way! Brook with BB Designs & Remodeling helped me in ways I didn’t even know I needed assistance. For example, her suggestion of moving a wall and a window in our living room ended up creating a showcase space that opens beautifully onto our wooded backyard. That kind of pre-construction/design assistance was exactly what I was looking for in a designer!! The vision that she laid out in our original meeting was amazing. After our initial meeting at the property, we sat down and went through various pictures and idea books so that Brook could further hone in on our desired look. She came to the table very organized and had multiple selections for me (lighting, kitchen cabinet pulls, wall colors, etc.), all the while offering her creative suggestions as well. She kept me on track with all the little decisions I had to make. And when I was overwhelmed with the amount of decisions/work to be done, Brook helped to calm me down and focus my attention on just a few things to keep the process moving forward without a high stress level. Brook was able to take us from the pre-construction phase straight through to the final design elements that pull the whole project together. Her help with various trips to tile and hardware stores to pick out the finishes were incredibly helpful!! BB Designs can help with whatever type of project you are looking to do. They can do a spot design if there’s an area of a room that needs assistance, all the way up to being the first in the home getting a major renovation project started. They can help interview and then manage contractors, purchase and receive the pieces, handle the budgets, and do the final design elements and staging. BB Designs & Remodeling can offer you a turn-key renovation experience – taking the stress and headache off of you. Finally, BB Designs & Remodeling’s assistance and expertise will add value to your home – making the investment in their design experience absolutely worth it. They can handle a simple staging of your home to get it ready for the market and have it present well to potential buyers -- to making great value-added changes during a renovation that will increase its market value! I think the change to our living room alone added a wow factor that will easily translate to well over $10k when we go to sell it! I cannot recommend Brook of BB Designs & Remodeling strongly enough. She has been incredibly hard-working, detail-oriented, dedicated, creative, flexible and understanding through our various starts and stops in our project. BB Designs is a company that truly wants to make you happy in your home and their love for their works shines through – they are a joy to work with! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for help with the design and/or renovation of their home.

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.  

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 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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
