    "I hired B.H. Developers to do concrete demolition and then repouring around our entire house after a foundation repair. Samuel went above and beyond to deliver a product that we absolutely in love with. A beautiful new retaining wall with steps, new steps on the side of the house, driveway, and a path with new steps in the front yard. All with integrated lighting."

    "This was our second major project with Primework Construction and we couldnâ t be happier. It was so easy for us, Ben and his team handle everything. They took care of the architect plans, the engineering, permits, facilities for the crew, and clean up. They worked within our budget and completed the project ahead of schedule. They really go out of their way to treat us well. We highly recommend using them for any of your projects, big and small."

    "Great communication, very professional and I feel I received excellent advice on how to deal with the hillside that was pushing against the fence, voila I now have a concrete retaining wall to guard against the natural movement of the earth in addition to a beautifully crafted redwood fence. The new gate reflects a true craftsman. Ron George got the job done ahead of schedule too! I would highly recommend Babylon Gardens."

    "We met with a few companies regarding our kitchen project before we ended up choosing Shai with Cal Green Remodeling. We picked him because of the knowledge he had and confidence he gaves us. He provided us with great ideas and a detailed estimate and timeline of what we could expect. His price was not very different than the others, however, his presentation was. Some of the other companies missed the mark on the details, which for us was very important considering this project was not cheap. Shai, had an answer to all of our questions and he offered us realistic expectations. Upon completion of our kitchen, we must say, we are super pleased with the results. We especially love the new island we added. Everything came out well and clean. The workers were efficient and kept the area clean during the renovation process. Shai was also readily available if we had any questions. I only wished we have used him for our bathroom remodeling project last year. Iâ m sure we will be using them again in the future!"

    "My initial bathroom remodel project turned into a larger than expected project, with major plumbing issues with the main line, which had to be completely replaced. Also my electrical, insulation also needed replacement. All said, the project took longer than initially planned, but Palm, took care of everything. Now I feel safe and secure in my home and have Palm to thank for that. The operations manager was in contact with me almost daily, and always responded to my questions immediately. Will definitely use them again for future projects."

    SSA Logo

    "Excellent Architect We hired SSA, Inc. for the exterior and interior remodel of our Autobody shop building. It is a challenging project since the building was never upgraded to be current code compliant. There are existing items to be legalized as well. Sharmila, Owner/Principal Architect is very knowledgable, experienced and familiar with city process, current building and fire codes. She is very personable, creative and suggested solutions and design that are both effecient for our setup as well as acceptable by the City. She and her competent, effecient team of engineers delivered design plans, renderings, drawing sets in a fast paced timeline so we do not have lags in our operations. SSA, Inc and team have expereince working with the building departments in all cities in the bay area. They communicate promptly and effectively with plan checkers and building officials. She is a fantastic architect who always works for the best outcome for her client. We are very thankful to have hired her and highly recommend her companys services for your remodel, addition or new construction project."

Frequently asked questions

  • It’s important that you verify their license is still in good standing. Also keep in mind that certain states or provinces don’t require licensing if the job is under a certain dollar amount.
  • You can find a list of your state’s licensing requirements on the HomeAdvisor website. Before you get to work with the pro, make sure their qualifications are current and acceptable to you.
  • It is always a good idea to get a copy of the pro’s insurance certificate for future records, and in case anything happens. This is a good way to feel more secure in your home project, and to weed out potential scammers.

HomeAdvisor makes it easy to connect with pros near you. You can read reviews, get quotes and book appointments all in one place.

Depending on the type of project, you may find subtle differences in the hiring process. Here’s a look at task-specific advice.

You can use HomeAdvisor to help evaluate a contractor’s qualifications. We put pros through a screening process, and award badges to high-performing contractors. You can find these badges on a pro’s HomeAdvisor profile, and sometimes, his or her website. 

Your research doesn’t stop here. Once you’ve found a few prospective companies, make an call to ask a few questions about work history, licensure and more:

  • Have you completed a job like this before?
  • Do you have a list of references I can contact?
  • When are you able to start the job?

In most cases, the responses you get to these three questions will give you a very good idea of the right pro for your project. If you have more than one front-runner, these additional questions can help you narrow it down. 

  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • What’s your permanent business address?
  • Are you licensed to work in my area?
  • When did you earn your business license?
  • How do you handle warranty service complaints?
  • Do you have worker’s compensation, property damage and personal liability insurance?

Any good contractor will answer these questions, and most will appreciate dealing with a client that takes such an active interest in finding good service. On the other hand, if a contractor gives you a hard time with these questions, you probably want to find someone else.
