David Cleaver provided outstanding service and work quality in building a fence for our home. He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and exceeded all my expectations with his work quality and craftsmanship. The price was tremendously fair and I felt taken care of if througout the whole process. The work was completed very timely, but not rushed, which lends itself to David’s meticulous attention to detail and the highest quality construction I could hope for. I give my highest possible recommendation for hiring David for your next project and I promise you will be just as pleased when you do.

Hemi is very hard working and knowledgeable. He performed the job in an above average fashion in a short period of time. Once the agreed upon work and price is established, I would (with ANY JOB) recommend getting a proposal in writing with a start time, finish time and" scope of work" so there are no questions between the home owner and contractor. I would hire this contractor again!

Highly satisfied with Michael's work installing the new gate in our fence. He was professional and punctual; great communication (very timely email messages which does not always happen with contractors) and "no job too small" attitude. Would highly recommend his services.

Bordeaux Construction Services did an outstanding job on a water damage repair job for my currently leased home. I believe the price was just right especially for the quick response from Lee. The home had first floor drywall damage caused by a plumbing leak in the 2nd floor master bath. Lee contacted me within 30 minutes of my quote request on Thumtak.com and asked to take a look at the water damage to the property two days later, on a Saturday, in order to provide a quote for the repair. After confirming with the tenant, we solidified the time. I was so happy with the expedited response and his response to me in general on the website that I then explained the problem to the best of my knowledge. I wanted a single general contractor to take care of my problem! It is such a pain dealing with multiple contractors for a repair job. I asked if Lee would could find the leak, repair it and the damaged drywall. He told me he would definitely do his best to fix the problem but he really needed to look at it first. I authorized him to do what he could. When Lee showed up at the property on Saturday, he did just that. He removed the damaged drywall, inspected the master bath plumbing, troubleshot by testing the bathtub plumbing and found the leak. He repaired the plumbing on the spot. He explained to the tenant they needed to allow time for the water in the ceiling to dry and for the repair to cure. On Monday, he called the tenant and asked them to test the repair. All went well and he scheduled the drywall repair two days later. The ceiling is dry wall with knock-down plaster which can be extremely hard to match in the middle of the ceiling. The tenant was extremely happy with the workmanship. I couldn't be more happy with his efforts as a property owner who is currently deployed overseas. He turned a truly stressfull situation for myself and the tenant family into a total success. Thank you Lee!

I called Don with a 4 day turn around for completion of a flooring job for the entire condo. He and his team showed up and completed the job on schedule. He delivers. His crew was professional, tidy and left the job site cleaner than when they got there. I will use his services again with three more remodel projects when the time is right, and I highly recommend him and his team for their high standards and customer service. Frank C Reffel

We hired BRC to renovate our back deck and re-frame the back door. Don assisted us in ordering a nice composite board and all the other accessories needed to complete the project. The contractors were very prompt and professional. The whole process included planning, tear-down, construction and haul away and it only took about a day and a half! We are extremely pleased with the quality of work, fair price and the professionals who finished our new deck!

Doug Roundy is an incredibly hardworking and nice guy who takes pride in his work and does a great job. My husband and I hired Roundy's after a cheaper find on OfferUp wend bad. Doug came in and got the job done quickly. We have had contractors come in and work shirtless, smoking and cursing but Doug did none of those things. Can't thank him enough for working efficiently while maintaining a high level of professionalism and craftsmanship.

Great experience! My house looks great! I like that they took the time to make sure my siding was secure before pressure washing began. They even trimmed the tree limbs that were touching the house. I will definitely hire Burgess Construction again!

After and awful encounter with Coblentz construction & concrete (btw who was rude and just nasty), I was very hesitant to use Thumb Tack for this job. But Richard saved the day! Richard was very easy to work with. He went above and beyond to ensure the job was done right and I am extremely satisfied. He made communication a breeze. I highly recommend him. His work is amazing and he takes pride in what he does.

This was my first time using a contractor and I have to say I can not imagine a better outcome! Creative Living did an excellent job remodeling my kitchen. Skip and Mike were very professional and easy to communicate with. They worked around my crazy schedule while remaining prompt and still staying within the estimated timeline. The workmanship is beautiful and exactly how I pictured. I would recommend Creative Living to anyone!

I cannot say enough good things about GC Contracting! Everyone associated with these contractors was very professional. They were always on time and even completed when they said they would! I have never had that with a contractor before so it is an extreme rare find. The wonderful craftsmanship exceeded my expectations. I will be using GC Contracting again for sure and recommending them when ever possible.

We hired Jason to replace our bathtub, and tile the walls, and floor of the bathroom. He also tiled the kitchen floor and replaced the bathroom vanity. He was very responsive, and we were pleased with his work. The bathroom is gorgeous and he did an excellent job on the tile work. I highly recommend Emitt Construction and would definitely work with Jason again.

This is a great team who really will travel to you. Had some landscaping that needed to be brought back to life and boy did they do a great job. The price was more than fair for the work that was done and I have to it I couldn't believe how far they drove to take on my project. If you are looking for affordable landscaping just give Lena and Ruth a call.

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.

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.

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.

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.
