I was very pleased with the work Stephen and his team had done for my house. There were some broken roof tiles, and water was leaking in the garage. Stephen explained replacing the tiles would not prevent from water leaking again, because he found there were thick layers of debris from the pine tree. Without cleaning the valleys, the water will not run down the roof. Also, some windows needed to be sealed correctly. Bottom line, I feel he was really looking out for me to make sure the repair was not temporary. His price was very reasonable. He ended up doing a lot more work such as trimming the tree, pressured washing the roof, painting one corner of the wall near the window. Plus, he did not charge me more than he originally quoted. The other quotes I obtained from other contractors for just replacing the broken tiles were not much less. I highly recommend Mr. Fixit. I will hire him again for future repair/maintenance in a heartbeat.

I contacted Houman over internet. Had several jobs for him in my new condo. We reviewed what work needed to be done and he gave me an estimate. He worked quickly and extremely neat and carefully. He put in new electrical outlets Redesigned cabinetry and installed it. Broke through walls for electrical work patched and painted. I cannot even find where he did the work. Set up closet systems, shelving in three closets hung shelves,fixed leaking faucets and installed two large lights in the garage. Bought supplies that were needed and showed me better ways to accomplish what I wanted. He is a man of many talents and I will call him again when I have other projects. I highly recommend Houman

Our experience with Hector was amazing. He installed cabinets, lighting, and electrical work in our garage (basically remodeled the garage). He is extremely hard-working and treated the job as if he was doing it for his own house: no shortcuts. His prices are very reasonable and he is a man of his word! You cannot go wrong with Hector! Excellent work and we look forward to working with him on ALL upcoming projects. We have found a handyman for life!

We hired Tim with Cota Ventures to build a fence in our backyard. He was a quarter of the way done when we expressed we wanted it built a different way; he quickly tailored the job to our satisfaction without hesitation. This is an example of excellent customer service. We were so pleased with the fence, we asked for a custom wood and steel gate. Once again, while he was building it, we had ideas that he responded quickly to, making sure we were completely satisfied with the finished project. We are happy with the price and quality of the work. Thanks Tim!

My experience with Oscar and his team from Xert was nothing short of pleasant. They are hard workers, listen, and willing to work with you and your project needs. My project consisted of finishing the tile floors which I started some time ago, relocating electrical and plumbing from garage to room, installing cabinets, installing a countertop, and installing baseboards and a door threshold. Along with that are the general things - drywall and patching etc. My personal background is in IT and I have an pretty decent exposure to automotive. But, in no way shape or form would I ever attempt to do any of this home stuff. The guys at Exert made home improvements fun as they were explaining what they were doing and why. I know how to find wall studs without the need of a stud finder or any tool now! We ran into a few unknown snags along the way but Xert was able to explain to me the issues and waited for my approval to move forward with the change. The changes implemented to overcome these issues were brilliant - I would have never thought the solutions were as legit as they were. At one point, it took me 2 hours to measure and make sense of what we were working with - i should have done this prior to xert showing up - but oscar knocked out the measurements in a matter of minutes! He explained the whole 5 minutes of measuring the entire way. Not only will Xert get work done for you, they are more than willing to teach you. I had a really good time with Oscar and the Xert team. They are xperts in what they do, knowledgeable, real, and most importantly they put an emphasis on the customer first. Their charges are extremely fair and affordable - if there is anything extra, they will let you know and not hide anything. I am definitely counting on them soon to knock out a few more tasks and have no second thoughts on highly recommending them to family and friends. As for bad reviews, everyone is different and will have different expectations. All homes are different and will have different results and methods to making a project successful. But, its your willingness to stay open and flexible which will make your experience unforgettable. Cheers, Team Exert! You guys have created and extremely happy home and we cant thank you enough!

Knowledgeable, experienced, personable, honest: everything you need in an excellent electrician. We’re so grateful our garage has power again, and that it didn’t take forever or incur life changing costs to get it up and running again. I also feel so much better now that I know it (and the house) is safer than ever.

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!

Tom is a true professional. I had him do a re-roof for my large garage. He showed up on time, did great work and charged a reasonable price (from $500-$700 below my yellow pages roofing bids). Next time I need a roofer, I'm going to make a bee-line for Tom and New Millennium Construction.

Martin and his team were referred to us. We closed on Friday, we fumigated over the weekend, and they had our 1200sq ft house apart Monday morning. Here is what they did in only five weeks: Exterior: -Repaired the fascia -Replaced my window trim on all windows, and two of my windows entirely. -Painted the exterior -Poured a patio -Replaced a large side gate -Built and painted a picket fence -Installed a mailbox -Helped me assemble my patio furniture in their down time -Hauled away two truckloads of garbage from the yard and garage that the prior tenants left -Trimmed the trees to keep the off the roof -Patched the roof -took care of the loose wireing in the garage Interior: -Scraped all ceilings -Ripped out all flooring -Ripped out the tub and shower -Ripped out the vanities -Ripped out the toilets -Ripped out all base boards -Retextured the walls and ceiling -Build two doorways -Built a small wall to fix the hall -Reinstalled the bathrooms with new fixtures -Replaced all the ceiling fans -Replaced two doors to the exterior -stripped my sliding glass door of that terrible fogging-effect plastic - hung fresh bedroom closet doors -new carpet in two rooms -new laminate in the living room, office, hall -new vinyl in the kitchen and bathrooms -new baseboards -new kitchen cabnet with counter to match the others -re hung kitchen cabinets to match the other side (they were low) -full paint -smoke detectors -fire extinguishers -re-wired my unsafe attic -new switches and plates Basically, They made it turn-key, from a total dump. And they stayed within my budget. But what will always stay with me is the sense of deep care and respect I felt every step of the way. Our first experience. Never were we blown off of treated like novices. Every time I share pricing with friends who have had work done on their homes, their eyes bug out at how wonderful our pricing was! They always went above and beyond. Like, meeting other people (the surveyer, the city for utilities, the garage door guy, the Apliance delivery guy) so that I didn't have to take work off. Like lending a hand with our last few boxes when we were moving in. Like staying around until my husband made it home on they day he got lost so that I wouldn't be alone in a new neighborhood after dark. Like working weekends to get it done. Like touching base every day with updates. Like helping me spray my yard with flea killer. Like always having a good laugh ready to share. Like answering my stupid "what-the-heck-is-this" calls weeks later when something native to the neighborhood would turn up (mostly bugs). I am so grateful. Also, It's been months and nothing has gone wrong. Our life carries on (knock on wood), and we don't think about trivial house stuff because it's all done.

Our job was to demolish and replace the existing wood patio / balcony that hangs over our garage port. Thomas Lee Cloud hauled away the old one and arranged for the purchase of the wood, the painting, and the assembly of the new deck. The best part was that he knew the city codes very well so that it would pass the city inspection. Many electrical complications arose but TLC was able to solve them.

We wanted to finish our garage floor with Epoxy and convert part of the garage to a home gym. After extensive research and several quotes, I was very impressed with Grant at the GarageMasters as they specialize in garage rehab and use the best products available in the market. His price was extremely competitive, and he did a remarkable job and stayed true to his time line and estimate. He even repaired some foundation cracks and did not charge extra. We are very happy with the outcome of the floors. Thank you!

We hired Louis after we had hired another company who ruined our kitchen cabinets. Louis was very professional and did an amazing job on our cabinets. He had to fix what the other company ruined. We would recommend Louis to anyone who wants to hire a professional who takes pride in their job. We are very happy with his work and can't wait to hire him again to do the rest of our cabinets in our house.

Sidney was flexible enough to come on the day of my request for a quote, which was a Saturday. We got the quote within 24 hours and by a landslide, it was the best one and he worked with us to get it within budget. There was a period in time where I had a hard time contacting him on a question I had but I will chalk it up to him being busy. I do appreciate what he has done and it looks great. Our garage finally is coming together. Thank you!

They did a wonderful job. Our house hadn't been painted in quite some time, so they took extra time scraping off the old paint and repairing the cracks in the stucco. Their attention to detail was very impressive. I highly recommend this company

I highly recommend Jerry and his crew. First, their craftsmanship is definitely superior - it’s as good as you’re going to find. I hired Jerry to add an attic floor (for storage); completely renovate our garage (adding a toilet/shower); and to then transform our kitchen into my wifes vision. His work is exquisite, his team is friendly and professional, and it’s clear they all have a passion for what they are doing, and have been doing it through generations. We’re lucky enough to own a quaint 1920s craftsman that’s in great shape, so we wanted someone with plenty of experience working on these Pasadena/Altadena homes and that could match the craftsmanship. Jerry intimately knows this area, so he can work on anything. We wanted out open-format kitchen to match the look of the house, and it does so remarkably. Jerry’s great at working with your budget, being clear about costs and what they are going toward, and I always felt like his finished product exceeded my expectations. From caring for our house’s original work when we install our attic-floor, to finishing the deck and awning that’s now attached to our kitchen. You’ll be glad you get this crew!

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.
