I have worked with many "handymen", contractors, builders in Richmond and Tony Tan, by far, has been the most responsive and skilled of all of them. I completely recommend him and will definitely use his services again. He made a multitude of repairs on a rental property to get ready for a new tenant as well as a property going to sale in just a few days.

John's service was outstanding. He mounted a ceiling fan and he mounted my T.V. and hid all wires along with the cable box and DVD box. He was on time, professional and very knowledgeable. His rates were very competitive and I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a great contractor.

One Stop Renovation is the way to go. I would recommend Nilson and his team. We interviewed three contractors. All three were sound businesses and good initial meetings, however Nilson provided a competitive bid and we meshed well with his and his partner. One Stop Renovations and his subcontractors completed a remodel of our kitchen, two bathrooms, flooring and painting within 40 days. They were flexible to some changes we made to fixtures selections. I would recommend them to anyone. The following comments are things that I think made our process smothering. - we hauled debris to help offset costs - we checked in most every day to see progress - the house is near a home improvement store for those last minute needs - we handled material costs

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!

Paul busted up and leveled my concrete porch in The Fan. He gave a great price and beat several other contractors that quoted me. End result looks great and glad to have a level front porch again. I shared his info with neighbors since he did such a great job.

Jason Bond was professional and honest throughout the entire process, from bid to completion of job. Other contractors tried to have us replace items that were fixable at half the cost. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
