New Kitchen Backsplash & White Walls

Ever since IKEA renovated my downstairs last year, I’ve been wanting to add a backsplash to my kitchen and paint my upstairs white. Looking for a home contractor in Austin can be challenging and since I live alone, it’s scary to let someone into my home.

I discovered Thumbtack a couple of months ago and I’m so thrilled to partner with them on their official lunch in Austin! Thumbtack is a destination where you can go for anything you need. Whether it’s to find a home chef, dog trainer or remodel your home, consider it done. You can discover local professionals in your city on Thumbtack, receive custom quotes, read reviews, and hire them. #Thumbtack #Consideritdone

Prior to Thumbtack, I was using my neighborhood’s Facebook group page to ask my neighbors for contractor suggestions. It was frustrating to track down phone numbers and to call up contractors to explain a project over the phone. Thumbtack was so easy to use. On the homepage, just type in the search bar what service you’re needing. Thumbtack then prompts you with a couple of questions to then pair you with qualified professionals. Compare pricing and quotes, and pick which professional is right for you. The platform is completely free!

I met with two different contractors to discuss the two projects I wanted to accomplish: (1) kitchen backsplash (2) interior painting. Hector of Pro Handy Home not only met with me at my house but also went tile shopping with me to pick the perfect tile and grout.

Both the kitchen backsplash and upstairs painting were completed in one day! Now my home feels brighter and bigger with the white backsplash and white walls throughout the house.
