Jem Plumbing repaired faulty shut-off valves in my kitchen and laundry room. I called the morning of and Juan was on-site by early afternoon. Great communication (called, texted when en-route, arrived as scheduled) work ethic and high-quality service. They definitely take the time to do things right. I highly recommend and would use again.

We had our wood kitchen cabinets, made in 1999, refinished by Samuel. Working with him and his crew was good experience. He was able to work with our budget and come up with a plan that was good for both of us. His crew began work when he promised, worked quickly and efficiently. The finished project was incredibly beautiful! It is hard to imagine these are our old cabinets!!! They look fresh and new. I recommend him most highly.

He did a better than average job and did it in a very timely fashion. The three things that I was disappointed about were, no clean up after job was complete, didn't cover the appliances in kitchen and he still has the key to my property.

Dean and Kim (The Happy Painters) did an awesome job painting the walls in our living room and kitchen. Our walls in our living room are vaulted from 12 to 19 feet and the job was done to perfection. They were on time, flexible and finished the job a day ahead of schedule. I will and would recommend them for any painting job you may have. Dean and Kim thanks again for the great job and help in perfecting my family’s home.

Mohammad (civil engineer) did awesome job on my French hardwood floor. The knowledge and experience shows in the final product. He is honest and very hardworking professional.

Where do I even start with Freedom Renovation. They have such a large showroom with many different cabinet styles and countertops displaying their quality work. Their showroom looks like something out of a magazine. Upon first impression I could not believe that everything that was done in the showroom was done by their exceptional staff. After a few weeks of discussing my planned kitchen remodel with the project manager Allen, my wife and I decided to hire Freedom Renovation. When we had signed we were told that the remodel would take about a month and a half, much to our surprise they were done in just a little over three weeks. I know I made the right choice in choosing freedom because my new kitchen looks better than anything I could've ever imagined. All of the staff was nice, friendly, courteous and excelled in customer service. I had heard some horror stories from my friends about other contractors and honestly was scared to have my kitchen remodeled. Throughout the entire remodel they kept me informed and up-to-date as to the entire progress of my kitchen. I always felt that Freedom Renovation had my best interest at heart. If you are looking for a bathroom or kitchen remodel or new floors installed I highly recommend them. The quality of the work they provide is unparalleled. My wife and I are already planning our bathroom remodel with them. Thank you Allen and your team you have made our dream kitchen come true.

I needed a new fence carpenter to build a fence and add a wall inside my home that was being remodeled. The fence looked beautiful and the wall was done well so I decided to ask if they also did bathroom or kitchen remodeling work. Bill said that he had a wide range of work he could perform or manage for me so I started small and had them redo a small bathroom. The bathroom work included cabinets, bathtub, shower walls, new travertine floor and painting. After the bathroom was complete and saving up for a few weeks we moved on to the kitchen. He assisted in the design and layout with the designer. The work took several weeks but it was beautiful and was much better than the drawings. After several months of work on my home, it is perfect with there help. I can't thank them enough and will pass there info on to friends.

Mark came out on father's day to give me an estimate, which I really appreciate. He was extremely helpful and gave me a very good idea of what my new kitchen will look like. While we were talking he even fixed my bedroom door that kept blowing open because it wouldn't shut. I'm very excited to get started on my new kitchen!

I’m thoroughly enjoying our new kitchen from King Remodeling! After an unexpected slab leak left us without a kitchen, we decided it was time for an upgrade. I’m so glad we chose King Remodeling. Ilan was fantastic to work with and truly had a vision for our kitchen. He was very hands on throughout the entire process, from walking us through 3-D renderings, to choosing materials, to picking out appliances and fixtures, and was always very responsive to any of our questions or concerns. Although he welcomed our input, we often relied upon his expertise to help guide the project. The team was great as well. They were extremely hard working, courteous and competent. The project was finished in a timely fashion and on budget despite an unforeseen setback. Overall, it was an extremely positive experience and we couldn’t be more pleased. I can’t wait to have them come back to remodel our bathrooms!

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.  

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.

Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.
