Extremely pleased with the service I received. In spite of running into some unexpected plumbing problems the job was finished on time and within budget. The price was 1/4 to 1/10 that of other plumbing contractors I had contacted. Without a doubt will use for any future plumbing needs.

I turned to TK Designs after being unable to sell my deceased father's home. Tanya and I talked thru email at first, then met at the home to discuss a plan for improvements that would get the house sold. With her guidance I decided to paint all the walls, install new flooring on the main level, and replace the kitchen counter tops and kitchen sink. Tanya's choices for the paint colors and flooring were spot on, and much better than I could have chosen myself. She even found me someone to replace the deck that was badly in need of repair. Tanya was quick to complete the painting herself, and my realtor even commented on what a difference it made. Tanya also coordinated the contractors for the flooring and kitchen upgrades, so I did not have to lift a finger. She gave me constant updates via text and email, so I never had to wonder what was going on. The transformation to the house is amazing and we even got an offer before it was officially back on the market. Tanya's help was invaluable and I would not hesitate to use her services again!

Frank Landaverde installed a new tile floor in our kitchen and entryway, and he was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I wish I could figure out a way to upload a picture here to show the results of his hard work: the grout goes wonderfully well with the tile, and he chose an arrangement for the tile that really works (we had three different colors). He and his associates really paid close attention to detail; the floor is flawless and beautiful. I really can't stop looking at it! Many thanks to Frank and his co-workers. We have had experiences with other contractors who did not follow through well, and Frank made every effort to meet our schedule; he even made special accommodations to ensure it was done on time. I can't believe how quickly and effectively they worked on this floor. I have to wish him and his small business all the best -- they will do well if they can keep up this level of service, and we will certainly hire them again in the future.

A year ago, my wife and I had water coming into our guest room. It was coming in through the lights (and attic) and down our walls. We had tried to take care of the problem with heat cables, but that didn’t do the trick so we called A-Team Construction and I’m SO glad we did! From the initial inspection (Josh was terrific - explaining everything in detail without selling us on anything) to the time the project was completed, my wife and I couldn’t be happier. We were given several options to work within our budget, with both Lucas and Tommy walking us through the process every step of the way. We ended up with a fully insulated attic, “boxes” around our recessed lights from 1958, and a new roof (fully ventilated!). When Josh and Brad discovered some unexpected moldy plywood on our roof, Lucas called me right away and, again, gave us recommendations and options to help us stay within our budget. I couldn’t recommend the team at A-Team more highly. After dealing with some questionable practices from other roofers/contractors, it was a breath of fresh air having such a reputable and honest group of people to work with. They are the real deal. If we ever decide to do any other work on our home, Tommy & Co. will be the first people we call.

The project scope and vision was to construct a deck that was aesthetically unique, functional for multiple tasks; with the requirement to have an outdoor space that allowed for an unobstructed view of the surrounding landscape and wildlife. Communications for the project were exceptional, from the beginning design discussions to the final completion of the deck. The design requirements were supported with structural needs that were unprecedented. The design and functional requirements for the cable railing system exceeded expectation; allowing for the unobstructed view, but still meeting the safety requirements of the deck. Electric Avenue, contracted through P.R.I.D.E. Construction, provisioned all of the needs for the extensive and unique electrical needs of the project to the same exceptional level as all the other components. The construction team was conscientious, professional, and their skills and workmanship amazing. In summary, P.R.I.D.E. Construction Company is appropriately named. From the inception of this project to the final completion the scope and vision were met; as well as the requirement to have an outdoor living space that melded with the surrounding landscape and wildlife.

Rick came a distance to give us an estimate and was able to tell us on the spot. He even gave us tips for some other house projects that we are doing on our own. His estimate and timeline was the most reasonable of all bids we got. He was able to start the project within two weeks. When he ran into an unanticipated electrical problem he spent the afternoon calling electricians until one could immediately come out. Everything was done in the time frame we were given. We are so happy with the end result. Would hire again.

I needed 4 doors hung in a basement reno I am completing on my own and I wanted them done correctly. Phil Connors was on time, communicative and did a good job hanging 4 pre-hung doors in the janky framing I put up. I will be bringing him back to do some custom shelf construction for a sit on top sink in a bathroom. He prefers not use telephone communication; he texts or emails, however, he responds to email quickly, within 24 hours. I would recommend Phil for your next carpentry project

Hadley and his team did a great job for us. We expanded our existing dining hall by 1,100 SF which required tying into the existing structure. This presented a number of challenges for us when building the framing. Hadley had a well thought out plan to address these challenges, as well addressing those surprises that always come up during construction and did it with quality in mind. Besides that, he's great guy to work with. John Moneski Project Manager Illinois Vipassana Assoc.

    Great job replacing exterior lights! Blake was easy to communicate with, came on a Saturday as requested and was quick with the install. He even took the old lights and boxes to dispose of them, with my permission. I plan to contact this company if I need additional work. Very pleased!

    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.
