My wife and I unfortunately hired another contractor to remodel our main bathroom. We should have known it was going to be a nightmare when he cashed our deposit check the same day and dodged our calls and texts for days before attempting to remodel our bathroom. After waiting patiently for 4 days to have a toilet installed and going without a vanity and sink for 9 days, we fired him. Thankfully, we found thumbtack's website and even more thankful we found Tony Tan the Handyman!!!!! Tony came out the same day we contacted him. He provided us an extremely reasonable quote to finish the work our previous contractor started, fixed the other contractor's mistakes, and even added on extra work we never thought we'd be able to afford. Tony offered to come start working the next day, but unfortunately we couldn't miss work on such short notice. He gladly offered to come that Saturday and fix our bathroom. Tony showed up on Saturday as promised, and in a matter of a few short hours all of the mistakes from the previous contractor were fixed, our "wish list" items were completed, and our bathroom was done. It's all that we'd hoped it would be and more. Tony and his team were polite, respectful of our home, and even cleaned up after themselves. Dealing with them was an A+++++ experience. We live in an older home and will be calling on Tony to help with all of our future home improvement projects.

It's always great to find a trusted and experienced professional for home repairs! We hired John to mount a few TVs, run a few coax lines and install our gas dryer. He was on time, friendly and patient with our children and dog, and did an excellent job! John is our goto from now on for all projects and will be our reference for friends and family in the Richmond area.

Our experience with Mr. John Thornton and his team has been excellent during the renovation of the external siding to our home. We are attempting to hire his services for other tasks in the near future and we highly recommend him to our neighbors.

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.

My husband and I met with several contractors and were very impressed with Howard Bullen's knowledge and skills. Others said we need a new deck, but Howard was able to repair and now deck is safe and looks amazing. The money saved now allows us to do other home repairs. We trust Howard and look forward to working with Bullen & Sons soon!

I would highly recommend Rae's Masonry for a project at your home or business.  When I called about an estimate,  Mr. Rae personally came to my home to assist me in designing my project, which consisted of repairing/replacing the bricks and slate on my front porch; building new steps and a walkway; and putting cobblestone pavers aside my driveway.  His estimate was very reasonable; which helped me stay within my project budget.  My neighbors were impressed by the craftsmanship and speed of his workers' performance. The brick masons were professional and and courteous by keeping the onsite materials organized and cleaned up their work area. They used quality materials that will keep my home looking beautiful for years to come. Masonry construction may be a lost art form to some,  but i believe it adds a classic, authentic feel to a home. Masonry unequivocally is the best choice for any home because it never goes out of style.  When I visited Shade and Wise Brick Company to choose my bricks, the representatives spoke highly of my contractor and said that Rae's Masonry would do a great job on my project. This gave me an extra comfort that this company would do a great job! Give Rae's Masonry a chance to turn your vision into reality!

I was very pleased with the work from LVC Construction. Shane made special arrangements to come out and give me a quote. He was willing to work on my double wide when most companies would not. He came on time to install my roof in 100 degree heat. He made sure the job was done correctly and it looks awesome.

We had some siding repair needed on our rental property. We were fortunate to find John Szilagyi, General Contractor. John did all the leg work to find a compatible siding to blend with our 6 year discontinued siding. He made the whole ordeal easy for us and his workmanship was flawless. He got the job done as he said he would and left no mess behind. I would highly recommend John Szilagyi, General Contractor and would certainly work with him again with no hesitation.

Jorge has completed numerous projects for me as I update and renovate my home. He is prompt, courteous, has assistance from his wife and son, is trustworthy, reasonable, and efficient. Most importantly he is honest. He first assesses the project, then sends a written estimate via email, gives a starting date, and cleans up after he completes each task. He buys the materials and brings them to the job. He saves me worry and time. He has completed the following projects for me: 1. Repaired drywall where I had had a water leak and painted the ceiling. 2. Painted all of my wood trim and turned it white. (Totally changed the brightness of the rooms). Has painted 5 rooms. 3. Removed wall paper and painted walls in a 2 story foyer. (his wife Monica cuts paint like no one I have ever known). 4. Removed and painted shutters and rebuilt several to avoid the cost of having custom wooden shutters made. (Very impressive work) 5. Removed a set of brick steps and replaced with new, "fake" wood steps, installed a railing. Rebuilt steps in my garage and installed a handrail. 6. Removed chipped paint and touched up white trim on the exterior ( house has 20 windows on the front). 7. Hung a double rear door that was custom made and has windows above it. 8. Built columns, hung a swing, painted porch ceiling... I have probably forgotten some projects. He has a wonderful work ethic and is pleasant. I could include photos, but I do not know how to do that!

Mr. Miller and his crew were hired for numerous projects at my home located in Fredericksburg Va. They completed these projects I requested in a timely manner and worked within my budgets. The flooring work they completed was very professional and the drywall/painting work transformed my living room. I would definitely hire Labor Only again for upcoming projects I need. Happy to find a verified contractor, thank you thumbtack 😀 Scott J.

We considered Nick among three contractors. Nick was on time to our initial appointment. He was detailed, knowledgeable and personal. The only reason we hired someone else is because they could complete more projects in our immediate time frame. I would recommend Nick because his quote was fair and his past work looks amazing.

The Sauls Brothers proved to be exactly what they promised; outstanding. This job was primarily repairs to the exterior of our home, and drywall repair, paint, and vinyl installation to the laundry room. They were neat, punctual, polite, knowledgable, and overall great contractors. They explained each detail, did not try to add "fluff" to their estimate, which was written on the spot, concise, and presented to us T the time of their inspection. Not only would I highly recommend them, I will definitely use them on any future repairs needed.

Our experience during the construction process was extremely pleasant. Kirk and his sub contractors were very professional, paid close attention to detail and shared our enthusiasm for our project. Kirk's price was so accurate that we did not go over budget which allowed us to complete other projects within the existing house. He and his subs participated in helping us complete other projects within the existing house and finished the addition ahead of schedule. I cannot say enough good things about the work that he and his subs did. We were very pleased and would certainly recommend him. I don't think the experience could be improved; unless I had won the addition and the renovations and gotten the privilege to work with him in some sort of home improvement sweepstakes! If you need an addition added or need home improvements done you owe it to yourself and your Home to hire Aikey's Home Improvements!.

I hired Verco to help me complete a few home renovation projects. Verco did an excellent job on our renovation projects. Richard and his assistant were extremely professional and timely. Verco came up with creative cost effective solutions to a few unforeseen issues issues during the renovation. When I had an issue with a certain finish issue, Richard corrected the issue without any hassle or additional charges.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
