Apples did a very credible job for us. The work involved sidewalk replacement. The price was quite reasonable. Pedro and his crew were timely, delivered as promised and quickly made arrangements for another contractor to grind tree roots, as that was necessary. Apples coordinated with the city inspectors and worked to their specifications and satisfaction.

Steve is, simply put, the best. Throughout the entire process, I felt confident and aware of what was going on with the project, and Steve made sure to do quality work. I've worked with other contractors before, and it's clear they're just wanting to get the project done and get paid; with Steve, he truly cares about doing the project right. I will absolutely hire him again when the time comes, and he's at the top of my list for recommendations. You owe it to yourself to hire the best, and that would be Steve.

I chose them because of the reviews and amount of business he’s actually done. I scheduled an appointment only to found out he actually worked on other houses in my new construction community. He came on Tuesday with one other worker and they completed the job within 4 days which was amazing Considering the work to be done. I gave him some ideas on what I was looking for and they did exactly what I asked for. I love my yard and appreciate The quick work and attention to detail. I had to work all week so it was nice to come home and see the significant progress each day. If you want quality work for a fair price look no further!

We initially hired Brandin for an electrical job but lucky for us, he was a an all-in-one home improvement general contractor. He was adaptable with our ever growing to-do list. We ended up asking him to do our trim in our laundry room, siliconing our shower, and now building a gate for us, and other random jobs! Very fair and honest pricing, professional, and recommended!

Overall, my experience with Family General Construction was good. Vili was professional and friendly. I sometimes worried there was a communication difficulty and his friendliness made it difficult to make sure he understood what I was asking for. There were a couple things I chocked up to communication but overall, we are very pleased. We are hoping he can come out and solidify our gate so that it opens and shuts, which it presently isn't. But the style and proficiency are there, all made great by his personality. Only improvement would be better plans to ensure the precise wishes of the buyer.

We loved working with John on our remodel. He does great work, is very responsive and really takes pride in the finished result. As all construction projects do, we had a couple hiccups that John found creative solutions to, ensuring we were happy with the final result. And, we are! He brought my vision to life and even had a hand in the design process when building our kitchen (which has some funky angles).

Pedro is fair, reliable, honest, clear, prompt and just a very pleasant, polite guy. He and his crew clean up after themselves, take before and after pictures to show what work was done and are very thorough, for example - he caulked the nail holes I hadn't noticed from a previously detached zinc strip. Excellent gutter cleaning and roof repair and inspection with no "hidden costs". I got a few cheaper estimates, but next year I will be calling Pedro again. He also does general contracting - he is someone I will be in touch with since I have gotten to the age where I can't do the jobs I used to be able to do. Thanks Pedro!

First off, Joshua, the owner of JW Builders, is one of the most professional contractors I have worked with to date. His crew rebuilt my deck and did a repair/rebuild of part of my fence. His crews attention to detail and communication are what stood out the most. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for excellent quality work and on their ability to work on a tight deadline. Thank you so much for my amazing new deck. One happy customer here.

Andy has worked with us since 2006. He has remodeled bathrooms, done indoor and outdoor painting projects, installed hardwood floor and carpet, built sheds, helped us put in a circular cobblestone driveway, supervised a roof project, installed a water heater, built retaining walls, paths, a vegetable garden, done landscaping, repaired our swimming pool and spa, installed kitchen appliances, done woodworking and built furniture. He has come to our rescue many times for emergency repairs. He is great about setting up projects for us to help with labor or to do ourselves. Andy's main concern in any project is safety. He is also interested in saving the customer money whenever possible but never at the expense of quality. He is an environmentally conscious contractor. He will always come back and do warranty work if needed. His records are always thorough and specific. In an effort to do the extra little things we request, he can run behind schedule and the job may take a bit longer than first projected. The main reason we bring Andy back for project after project is his honesty and integrity. We have worked with many contractors in our 30 plus years of marriage and have never found anyone we trust this much.

Pedro and his team did a wonderful job with the Inspection tasks we gave him. He was able to squeeze part of the job in to accommodate our timing, problem solved a difficult dry rot solution where several other experienced contractors couldn’t and executed the job on time, quickly, perfectly and left the site tidy. Communication is great, workmanship perfect and easy to work with! He’s on my preferred list! Thanks Pedro!

I had a front door and screen installed and Craftsman Construction did an excellent job. They were so very professional and efficient, in addition to being very nice. I was so impressed that I have two other tasks that I hope to have started in January. And they cleaned up after themselves, wow! Craftsman Construction is definitely who you want to take care of any construction projects.

Brian and his crew did an outstanding job on my deck project. It was a somewhat complex job as it had two levels and the second level partially surrounded a pool area. The Ronin team worked with me and found the best solutions to a variety of portions of the decks that needed to be completely rebuilt and some that repairs could accomplish. Brian worked with me and kept the project on track and on budget so we could enjoy our decks as soon as the summer weather started. I would highly recommend Ronin Construction and would work with them again anytime.

My shed had rotted on one corner and needed a lot of help. Pablo was very flexible and easy to work with. He’s very knowledgeable about carpentry & other general contract projects. He also fixed our water stop valve and fixed a leak behind our refrigerator. We now have water and ice in the fridge and an awesome shed which will house our pet chicks and yard supplies.

Hector and his team of professionals did an amazing job!!! They worked hard into the night to get the flooring installed and the plumbing put in when another contractor fell through. He came in under-budget and ahead of schedule for the launch of my Airbnb.

We hired Lonel (TWOCO Construction) to build a 10 ft by 12 ft shed in our backyard. Before starting work, he met with us and we discussed what we wanted and he looked at the building site. He spent a few days researching the cost of materials and provided us with an estimate. Lonel built us a solid (sturdy) shed, 15 percent over the estimated price, that we are sure will last a long time. The quality of the workmanship was very good. He is a conscientious person that strives to insure that his work is of excellent standard. Good communication and open to feedback throughout the process. Thank you Lonel.

I hired Ben and his company to fix my second story deck and what stands out for me the most is Ben and the outstanding men who work for him. First, the General Contractor, Ben, was involved in every aspect of the job and kept me abreast of the job while also recommending areas of importance. His expertise was invaluable as a lot of his initial concerns on the deck have been shown to be true. Both Ben and his men's enthusiasm and love for their job was evident everyday by how they explain what they were doing and the importance on why they were doing it a certain way. They are focused on doing the best job possible. Their work ethics is a reflection of their boss, Ben. When Ben first came out to my home he immediately noted the wood rot on my deck and made it clear he can't determine the extent of the wood rot until they start to remove a couple deck boards to install flashing. He also voiced his concerns how the deck was originally waterproofed and stated how he believes decks such as mine should be done and explained why. He also made some key recommendations to improve the safety of the deck and to make it more efficient such as: 1. He noted the railings of the deck was a safety concern due to the wood rot and how it was installed. 2. He noted how he could divert water to our gutter system in an area where water falls freely which adds to the flooding we get during heavy rain beneath the deck. 3. Because of flooding we get during heavy rain, Ben, extended a portion of my deck by a foot so it overlaps our lower deck which is built on our downward sloping backyard. This is extremely helpful in that the water runoff does not fall directly on our concrete beneath the deck where it pools/floods, but, rather the water now falls onto our lower deck and further down our downward sloping backyard. 4. He recommended sidings to be used underneath the deck to hide the joists. 5. He recommended before he installs the sidings he can cut holes for lighting if I wanted to add lighting. I would've never have thought of these recommendations and am so thankful Ben did. Other contractors I hired charged more than Ben and their workmanship was no way near the quality of Bens...plus, they did not offer me any recommendations...Ben truly...I mean truly wanted to help me. It was like he was doing this project for his own house with the safety of his own family in mind. Attached are a few pictures...I have an older picture that shows what the underneath of my second floor deck used to look like...joists visible---I just assumed that's the way it's supposed to look like when you have a second story deck. The other two pictures are the 'after' pictures of what Ben did (after he tore down and rebuilt my second floor deck), his recommendations totally changed the look and functionality of my home which also immediately increased the value of my home. Ben basically renewed my faith that there are good contractors out there where you don't have to pay an arm and a leg....I got extremely lucky when I found Ben and his outstanding workers. You simply can not go wrong with Ben!

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.  

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

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 I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
