We had an emergency situation where we needed trim for an entire home done same day by 2 pm. Sergei finished early and his work was exact. He was very careful removing old doors and maneuvering doors between the hallways to not ruin the paint or the doors. He also cleaned up really well before he left and also communicated his ideas with total honesty and did not take advantage of overcharging for a rush job. He let me make decisions with no pressure and presented different options throughout the project. He ran the extra mile for sure! He worked well with the other contractors as a team to finish what needed to be finished by 2 pm. We will work with him again. Highly recommend!

Axel is a good young contractor that owned up to his reputation. On a personal level he was courteous and kind. Like all contractors, he gets busy and getting to the job on time is challenging, but he came through in the end. Thanks Axel!

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.

The Yard Guy gave me a response almost immediately on line, and called to schedule an appointment within the half hour. Came to my home, gave me a quote and was able to get the work done within a few hours. He was very nice, very professional and I'm happy knowing I have found a new contractor I will be using again and referring to others. His work was great!

We have used several Pro.com contractors as we prepare our home for sale. Triple Power addressed some dry-rot in cedar siding and an interior closet floor and subfloor. They were professional and the finish in both cases exceeded our expectations.

I hired R&R hardscapes to build a complex deck with a roof and finished underneath of the deck equipped with lighting and electrical outlets. When I approached Ricardo, owner of R&R and let him know what my idea was he gave me great advise on what materials to use to fit into my budget. One of my biggest challenges in living in the northwest with a deck was having to replace deck boards all the time, even when treated. Ricardo told me about brazillian hard woods and the benefits of this product. Mind you that I was trying to find the right contractor foe this deck for 2 years and out of the 10 contractors I spoke with not a single one told me about brazillian iron woods, probably because of how expensive the product was and how much time it takes to install. These hardwoods last 75+ years. Ricardo was able to come up with a plan for my dream to have this extension added to my house and fit it into my budget. Most contractors didn't want to touch the project because of how complex it was. Ricardo has a real sense for what I wanted to create for my family so that I can enjoy it in all seasons. His first thing was safety. I didn't want a bunch of cross boards hindering my view both on the top of the deck and under the deck. He poored nearly 2000 pounds of concrete under each support pole and doubled the size of the footings to make it super stable, enough to put 2 elephants on my 350 square foot deck. Let me tell you that my deck is the talk of the neighborhood. Everyone wants to come over and hang out. Another thing a really appreciate about Ricardo is he always picks up the phone to talk to you when you have questions and I had a lot of questions. He did such a great job on my deck that I contracted him to do my pavers under the deck and souronding areas and my fence. Check out the pictures.

The job was a earthquake retrofit. I had spent six months on the wait list with another earthquake retrofit company, only to be dropped four weeks before they were supposed to start the work, so I was in a huge panic, because I had a larger scope project of an entire basement remodel scheduled to start as soon as the retrofit was done. Needless to say, I was terribly worried I wouldn't be able to find another contractor who would be able to do the work. I VERY luckily found Sound Pacific, who recognized my time crunch, and were happy to step in and take over. They were extremely competent, well organized, and got the job done in the correct amount of time, so that my basement remodel could proceed on time. The best part about working with them is they are very communicative at all times as to what is happening with the project, and were very good at asking questions as to what the customer wanted. I very much enjoyed working with them, and would gladly recommend them to anyone. If my basement contractor falls through on the job, I have already informed him I have a great team who I would be thrilled to have takeover. Thank you Derek and Michael for all your hard work. Sincerely, HG, West Seattle

Kriss did an outstanding job for me! I was really impressed with how hard he worked to provide excellent customer service. I needed him to complete the work by a certain time. He completed it ahead of schedule. And I was very pleased with the work he did for me. It was not an easy area to paint. It required attention to detail. He work shows that he is indeed a very skillful painter. I shall be calling upon his services again in the future!

Larry added some gutter downspouts to a multi-level roof that had upper level gutters emptying out onto the next level roof surface. This arrangement was causing leaks during heavy rains. Larry added downspouts from the upper level gutters to empty into the next level gutters. Roof leak issues solved and the work looks great. Larry also replaced 2 man-doors in my garage that posed a security risk because they had doggy doors in them; one leading into the house and one leading into the yard. Excellent work on all projects. Larry informed me when he ran into unexpected issues and gave me options on how he planned to work around the issues and he did not charge extra for any of the unforeseen work. I even changed the original plan midway through the gutter job and he had no problems accommodating. He did quality work. The gutters function way better and look great. The new doors are set better and balanced better than the old doors. Great Work!!! I will be using LG Home Improvement and Maintenance again for future projects for sure!

Cliff cut soffits and replaced vents in our roof. We had very hard time getting roofing contractors to come out and assess the work as we are in peek roofing/rainy season. Cliff gave us a reasonable quote below the cost of other roofing contractors and completed the project in less than a day.

Ivan did a great job installing my kitchen cabinets and modifying one of the cabinet sizes in the process. He also installed custom panels for my refrigerator. He did all of this in a single day! He was very keen on finishing the job whereas I have to drive my other contractors to finish stuff. Would hire him again.

I had a great experience with Levi and his crew. It is a pleasure to deal with a contractor that actually keeps his word and gives you great quality at the same time. It was unbelievable how quickly Levi and his crew finished the work that I ask him to do. He laid a 14 x 12 slab of concrete and babied that slab with a beautiful finish. Then he put up a gazebo and assembled it lickety-split. I would highly recommend Levi’s Left Coast construction. I’m sure I’ll be using him in the future.

Tech Construction recently remodeled our kitchen and we are so happy that we chose to work with this excellent team and group of contractors. They were a pleasure to have in our home, very neat, paid attention to detail and communicated well throughout every step of the remodel. The remodel was quick, too, and seamless for each component of the cabinets, plumbing, electrical and appliance installation. We've worked with many firms over the years and Tech Construction LLC far exceeds the quality of work, level of professionalism and skills of each carpenter. It was such a wonderful experience. They also sound proofed our ceilngs in the kitchen and breakfast room. They had the experience and expertise to know these advanced skills and truly got it right. Thank you, GIovanni, Benny and Ricardo. We miss you already, but see your smiles and dedication in our kitchen daily.

I would definitely recommend Brian and his team at Craftsman Construction. I now come home everyday to my dream Kitchen! I have worked with other contractors in the past and I have to admit- we were a little scared to undergo such a big project, but from our first meeting to the very end Brian made us feel very much at ease. The quality workmanship, professionalism, and time on the project was awesome. Brian was able to see our vision and make it into a reality. His experience was also a big help in directing us on ideas that would add to our homes resale value but also stay within our budget. Aside from their customer service, the quality and finish work once the project was complete blew me away. We couldn't be happier! Thank you Brian!!

I am so happy we decided to hire Synergy Services for our small bathroom remodel. Andre was great to work with and very communicative. He was always available to answer any questions in detail, he and his crew showed up exactly on time for the duration of the project (which is always a concern when hiring contractors), and they were all extremely professional and respectful of our home. They did a fantastic job on our bathroom, and the price was fair compared to many of the other quotes we received. After the project was finished, there were a few very minor touch ups we wanted them to make, and they came out to fix those things within just 2 business days. We could not be happier, and we would 100% hire Synergy Services for another remodel project in the future. I've heard all of the horror stories when trying to hire contractors, especially during the busy summer months, and our experience with Synergy Services far exceeded our expectations. If you want a quality contractor that's professional, punctual, and at a fair price, hire Synergy Services!

From the very first meeting, we felt at ease working with Fernando. He understood what we were wanting to accomplish with our kitchen remodel and offered cost saving suggestions and even space planning advice. The final product was a beautiful and practical move-in ready remodel. I've worked with a lot of contractors in the past and Vennux is a good combination of large-scale, commercial project experience in a residential setting. The team was efficient, creative and polite.

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.

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.  

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.  

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.

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.
