James was fast, efficient, and solved every issue I had -- including coming up with ways to solve problems as they arose. He was very responsive -- i'm just now getting responses from people asking me to send them what i need and yet he finished the work 7 hours ago. He was careful, took the time to do the project right and didn't let obstacles slow him down. I would definitely use him again, and his contractor experience is a great help to whatever he was doing...he gets the job done!

Roger put together a queen size Murphy bed from Costco for us at an extremely reasonable price. He was very professional, thorough, punctual, and talented! He is a perfectionist so made sure that everything was done correctly and looked great! He was more than willing to come back the very next day to help us with some other projects- building and hanging cabinets, assembling a toddler bed and hanging drapes and pictures. All A-plus work! I am looking forward to hiring him again to build a closet and mount TVs for us next!! I don't think there is anything Roger can't do, he's super skillfull! Would highly recommend him. :)

If Thumbtack allows users to more stars, I would grade Maha for 10/10! Before our project started, we interviewed almost 20 contractors and Maha is the only one provided the professional in-depth site analysis with very detailed bidding with all items broken down into material and labor as well as the amazing schedule analysis (and we did have the project finished prior to the original projection date). Thru out he entire project process, Houman (owner of Maha) was showing all his professionalism into all the detail and he was on-site everyday working with his crew, providing prompt update and honest suggestion in all area. He also provided very helpful weekly progress summary that help me to show to my management for the update. The entire crew was all professional, friendly, and showing their care to the premise owner every moment. Communication is 10/10 as well. At the end of the project, I noticed some additional item that I omitted earlier, and Houman was able to help me on those as well altho he didn't have to, all respect for that. I definitely will come back to Maha again if I have another project coming, also recommend them to anyone looking for professional and sincere designer/contractor.

Jamie was great, he responded immediately and was able to meet the next morning. He installed our front door and had to fix other problems from a previous contractor. He did an amazing job and we won’t hesitate to call him on my next phase of construction.

We remodeled our kitchen with the help of Excel Construction. Before hiring them, we met with several other contractors which after our meeting with them, we decided to go ahead with Excel Construction because when we met Eyal, he had few previous projects that did match our vision and ideas and his estimate was in the range of our thoughts too. The remodeling included the demolition of the between the kitchen and living room remodeling the laundry room, bedroom and bathroom. He spent long time with us mainly on the design and the vision and offered several suggestions to make this project better while keeping it within budget. The working crew was excellent as well! Few sub-contractors were involved too they all were professional, hardworking people and trustworthy. We definitely love the results of the remodeling project! Excel Construction cares a lot for their client’s satisfaction! Thank you, Eyal!

Oscar was amazing and went above and beyond to get the fridge installed. He had to move an outlet that was not properly placed by my contractor. Made a trip to Home Depot and stayed longer to get it done. I highly recommend him!

Thank you Cabrera's Electrical. We have had so much work done on our home, yet when our private contractor retired, we did not know what to do. Cabrera's had the most professional response online. We had (2) large ceiling fans to be installed, and needed electrical re-wiring of the (2) wall switches that would be used. His quote was what our retired contractor told us it should be. Our fans and new electrical are perfect. I plan on using him again for other projects that we have. We have already referred him to friends of ours. It's such a relief to find somebody who cares about your home, as much as you do.

We recently had our home painted and wanted to add exterior coach lights to both sides of the garage door. We had several quotes for the job (using same materials) and Mike's quote was the most reasonable of them all. We set up an appointment for the job and Mike not only showed up on time but also called to let us know he was on his way (this is rare with most contractors/installers). He performed the work promptly and added a photo cell so the lights turn on at night and off in the morning by themselves. This exterior accent lighting was the finishing touch for our home improvement project which now also adds a bit more security to our dwelling.We were extremely happy with Mike's friendly service, highly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future. American Castles and Mike Tay are class acts!

After looking into our project (drywalling garage and some demolition), we realized we wanted to wait on this project and save up for a better budget that would serve our needs better. However, our experience with George was very professional from the get go. He called and stopped by the very same day I posted the project. He provided an estimate on the spot, and even stopped by a day later to drop off a written estimate. Since we want our garage to serve as a gym/work area, we realized we needed a bigger budget to serve our needs and have the final project be as nice we'd like. George's professionalism left me feeling very impressed and comfortable with him. This is the type of man you could trust both inside/outside of your home, and for this reason, I'll definitely be considering George for any work my home needs in the future!

We hired Wid to do a kitchen remodel and are pleased that the project was completed on time and on budget. We had plans drawn up and approved by the city before bidding out the job to multiple contractors. Most contractors seems to just throw out a number but Wid's proposal was thorough and thoughtful. I can tell that he reviewed the plans thoroughly because his proposal had detailed line items for each step of the remodel and the cost associated with each line item. Because Wid put in the effort at the front end when he did the proposal, there were no unexpected costs and we stayed on budget. Wid gave us a reasonable time frame to complete the job and he was committed to our job for the duration of the time period. He and his crew showed up on time and made progress everyday. If I was around at the end of the day, Wid would give me a walk thru to discuss the progress and what they expect to accomplish the next day. Wid was great about being in communication with me throughout the whole process. After starting the kitchen remodel, we decided we wanted to do a bathroom remodel, relocate our water heater, and repipe our entire house. Not only was the additional cost extremely reasonable, but Wid was still able to complete the kitchen remodel and these additional work orders within the original quoted time frame. A few times, I changed my mind regarding some of my decisions. Wid was surprisingly patient and understanding. He even gave some wonderful suggestions even though it would add more work on his plate. Also, I wasn't happy with some tile work his crew did and when I discussed it with Wid, he listened without being defensive, examined the work, and agreed that his guys will need to redo it. And when they redid the work, it was exactly what I wanted. Overall, Wid exceeded my expectation in the service department and provided very good workmanship. I highly recommend and would love to work with him on future projects.

For my tax refunded I wanted to remodel my bathroom, I wanted a modern but yet elegant style found on modern homes.I had a few contractors come to my home for quotes and suggestions. The thing that set J&D apart was there attention to detail that is hard to find and it's family operated. Johnny offered different type of styles and material and explained the difference between the different materials. Sarah made choosing materials easy and fun by having different sample and pricing On hand for my wife and me to choose. At the end we decided to go with Italian wood floors and 16 jet Whirlpool bathtub and bathroom fixtures. Alex is a master of his craft. During construction alex paid attention to the smallest details like placing silicone around places so water wouldn't leak and having the flooring cut right to not leave any creases. the job was finished on time and 200 over budget because I added a few fixtures and the end. Currently Planinng to remodel my kitchen with J&D before the holidays. I would definitely recommend J&D to friends and family. You guys rock

Edgar and his crew were pretty amazing and thorough. High quality work with great communication along the way. Our new deck is beautiful. Would definitely hire this contractor again and highly recommend this company. Quality company with an innovative approach. Was sold on the day he came out to do the estimate. By the end of the day I received not only a competitive bid, but a rendering of the proposed construction.

Oscar Morales our draftsman has been very helpful on our home remodel. He is extremely knowledgeable and created architectural plans for us to submit our project to the City as owner/builder. His fees are very fair. He is a team player who works well with others, seeks out good resources, and has helped us to move forward on our project in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Oscar for your project.

I’m so glad that I found SDP Construction. They repaired significant damage done to the side of my house caused by a motor vehicle. I had an awful experience dealing with a contractor that was provided through my insurance who never showed up when scheduled or returned my phone calls. SDP were a god send. They were very responsive, professional and did great quality work. Saied was a pleasure to work with. Just a genuinely honest person that I felt I could trust. I would 100% recommend SDP for any general contracting work needing to be done.

Could not be happier with this company. They went above and beyond. We had some water damage to our home and needed a contractor ASAP. GIM came out to my property and assessed the situation right away. They provided me with an estimate and got started right away. My roof needed to be repaired and and I decided to also to some interior renovations. I had my kitchen re done with a modern finish and opened up a wall to give it a bigger feel. There architect supplied me with drawings ahead of time to show how it would look. At the end they put solar on the roof and now I am saving money on my energy bill. Thank you for all the hard work!

Awesome experience! ? billy was on time everday... worked in a very professional manner and and paid attention to details. I hired him first for a fence for my dogs in the back to make an enclosure n he did it hassle free and even added a special wood feeding area with left over wood.. which was great. I then hired him again for my front fence which he faced an exsisting brick retaining wall i had and framed a wood fence on top of it. He was very patient with all the lil details i was asking for and handled my change of mind on the wood i was going to install. He handles it with stride! Nice guy and great worker all around. I would highly recommend to anyone. I also am hiring him again for work i need inside the house.

We worked with Rex Contractors on various projects actually. So we can say confidently that they do a great job. Dependable and communicate very very fast. Anytime that I had contacted them, I'm able to get a reach of them immediately or they get back to me right away. As for the projects themselves, they do a great job. We had Rex Contractors working on our house and a few relative's houses for mostly kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Each project turned out clean and beautiful. Big thumbs up to Miguel who did the tiling and Alex who did the hardwood floor. Those guys are super cool.

Gilbert knows what he is doing, his guys are great and get the work done right the first time. I am building my own home and i wish i hire Gilbert for slab and framing but i had already had it done when i met him. The work was 100% done right pass all inspections with green flags. communication was top notch. Cons: We agreed to have him install drop ladder that i supply he came to final inspection and collect his final pay and i left he said he would get it install. Came back and it was not install. I handle it but the principal was not there. I texted him to find out if he was planing to come back and pick up all the left over wood that they left (trash) never got a response. I am a plumbing contractor and i would never leave a job site the way he did unethical. That is why i left a 4 start but in reality a 3 start would of been well deserve. I have another project now and i do not know if i will use him again.

Brad of BME Builders was our contractor on a number of home improvement and repair projects last year. He gutted and rebuilt the master shower, incorporating some painted tiles I was sentimental about. He really listened and was able to guide us to get just what we wanted. He also replaced a rotting front porch, added crown molding in the family room, and arranged the exterior paint job. We will definitely use him again.

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.  

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.

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
