Slava did a wonderful job and Dina, his daughter, made communication so easy. They were very responsive and adaptive with any changes we requested when making plans for the job. It came out exactly as we’d hoped and we will continue to use Slava for our future renovation needs.

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.

When I needed to have a painted floor sanded, I chose to have the job done by Mr. Bordeaux because he was prompt in responding to my request for an estimate, thorough in his communications, and competitive in his price. He came when promised and got the job done quickly to my complete satisfaction. I would consider him first for future, more involved home improvement/remodeling projects.

I hired Coastal Touch to paint my entire house and garage (exterior). Tim was VERY professional, VERY responsive…. gave me a firm, professional quote the day after we spoke over the phone about the project. Told me which paint store he had an account at, told me to pick my colors and he would do the rest. (no money needed up front). After deciding on a color, Tim was at the house in 2 days, pressure washed and painted it top to bottom in 3 days. ... the job he did was absolutely flawless! hit every spot we discussed. Tim called me a week after just to make sure I was happy with his work. I would recommend Coastal Touch with any project! I will be using Tim again on future home upgrades!

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

I was talking to my wife last night over dinner about my first time experience getting help on remodeling designs (I’m a new house flipper). I had planned to have another designer come and help with designs on my other flip I just closed on today. Shelly knew she was “interviewing for a job” Because of her commitment and service, my experience with her was second to no one! So, I’m sure we will be talking again very soon. 🙂

Determined the leaks were caused by deteriorating mortar joints in step sections of chimney. Ross came back quickly after discovery and corrected the problem prior to any rain! Will definitely use Ross again for any brick work at my home!

This plumber as well as handyman was very knowledgeable and was able to come out almost immediately when the urgent need was communicated. Reasonable priced but most of all, he was able to replace a faulty front door knob, snake a double vanity sink that was slow draining, replace a non working outlet on the front porch, and the landlord has made arrangements for him to install the custom ordered pantry doors. I would highly recommend and is now my landlord’s go to person for home handyman jobs.

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!

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.
