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!

Excel Construction demolished and remodeled several parts at our house. They did our kitchen, two bathrooms and 2 fireplaces (1 at the formal living room and the second one at our master bedroom). While the people were working at the house they always tried as much as they could to keep the house clean and well organized. This was one of the main things that we truly loved to see because we were living at the house during the remodeling. The kitchen and bathrooms were demolished completely while we were able to use other parts of the house and Eyal who managed this entire work, helped us in all the purchased, communicated with us on a daily basis and each Friday, he gave us a detailed progress report that kept us in the loop of the work. Our home is a lot more than the way we thought or imagined it will become and all of it is definitely because the people that were involved at our house. The office staff were really detailed and professional in regards to all the documents, paperwork, payments etc… She made sure to update us with any news or issues with her department in regards to our remodeling project. The guys who did the actual work (including several sub-contractors), always worked hard and they made sure that everything will fit perfectly and without any mistakes. They were polite, quite, respectful and professional. The finish project is stunning. We strongly recommend them to anyone!

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!

Frank called us right away, was easy to talk to and did our estimate the same day. He had a good price and good ideas for our project. He was available to start when we wanted and cleaned up afterwards. The floor was a challenge because of the unevenness but he stayed a long day to finish and didn't mind that we added a side project. He was careful and showed attention to detail which was evident in the excellent finished product which was installation of our laminate wood flooring.

Excellent crew, as a builder myself, I've come across many crews who were just the opposite. Edgar,Miguel and their guys are very professional...and may I add very clean. They respected my home and treated it as it were their own. I will be calling on them in the not too distant future, for other projects that me and the Wifey have in mind. Thank You, Fellas....job well done!!!

I highly recommend Frank For your next project - he was a pleasure to work with.

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.
