Arisel handled a small hardwood repair job in our kitchen. First I'm grateful that he offered his services. Many contractors only bid big jobs. Second he followed on his commitments to me, being on time and following up the next day with a touch up. I did not have to follow up. He was good to work with. Third I think he did an excellent job with the conditions he had to deal with. I recommend him.

Matthew Kelly is hardworking and honest. He strives to make the job go as well as possible. After other contractors said no or did not return my calls, he responded quickly on the weekend, and he completed the job in a timely manner. Matthew's operation is lean and responsive. He is pleasant to work with and has my recommendation.

I've literally communicated with or contacted at least five contractors over the past two months to complete this flooring job. Salinas was an answer to prayer! Whereas other sites or contractors told me to wait and/or never got back to me or took others jobs, Vyron responded promptly within an hour when I posted the job on Thumbtack. Vyron and Pablo did excellent work putting down a new subfloor and plywood, then installing an LVP (see photos) and a new toilet (not pictured). Vyron communicated about every step of repair and installation and about every purchase for the job. He takes pride in his work and left the work area clean. I'm so glad that the job is finished and that it was done well.

I hired Gusanito to install porcelain tiles in my bathroom. He was very prompt--being the first contractor to contact me on thumbtack--and quickly responded to my text messages whenever I had a question. He takes his time and is very detailed in his work. He is also willing to help you with other problems. For example, in addition to installing the tiles, I also wanted to change my sink faucet and shower handles. He agreed to do the extra work at a reasonable price. The tile installation went smoothly, however, we ran into plumbing issues which he couldn't solve. I'm giving him four stars because I hired him on thumbtack for tile installation services, not plumbing. Nonetheless, he agreed to bring his cousin (who is an experienced plumber) over the next day to change my sink faucet at no extra cost. The total work took about two full days to complete, but I'm sure it would have been less if we didn't run into the plumbing issues. So I recommend him but make sure you talk with him thoroughly about what you want to accomplish.

Pros: Jasper was prompt in responding, punctual, friendly, and completed the work quickly. I was impressed that he finished this project in one day; whereas other contractors seemed to indicate it was more work and more difficult. I would hire him again. Some areas he can improve: There were a couple of minor areas that were knicked on our kitchen island that I didn't notice until cleaning up. Also, I think he could have done a little better cleaning up the island- wiping down the cabinet fronts that had a light layer of dust (I did this myself). Finally, I gave him a box of stain & top coat that the previous owners left to us. He applied them but I noticed they didn't leave the counter shiny, like the finish we had before he sanded. After Jasper left, my husband realized we were missing the water sealant coat which we had in the garage. So now we are applying this coat ourselves to make the island water- proof and give it the same shine. This isn't totally Jasper's fault since I gave him the supplies but I would have liked if he would have noted that something seemed to be missing or off (or given his recommendations on what he would have stained/sealed it with to make sure the wood stayed water proof.) Overall, I'm happy with the work.

Brian did a office remodeling for me including demolition of a whole room, removing many built-in cabinets, rewiring, and finishing new walls. He mostly worked alone, but his work was meticulous. Brian is one of very very few contractors whom I can actually trust. (I have built a 8,000 s.f. house among other building projects, so I have experience with many contractors.) Brian will do what he promised, at the price he promised, within the time frame he promised. Highly recommended for all remodeling work. Thank you, Brian, for a job well done.

Eduardo has helped me with many projects, including painting and restoration for over 3 years now. He is competent, hard working, and always pleasant. I think it's because he genuinely enjoys and takes pride in his workman. He's honest when he doesn't know how to do something but will advise on necessary repairs if he sees a problem. Recently he found sitting water in my gutters when he was cleaning it. My gutters are on the second story (so I would never have seen it), but he recommended that I find a professional gutter service for installation of more down spouts to address the problem of sitting water. I like that he knows his skills and is honest about what he is best equipped to do. Eduardo has helped me with projects both large and small, from hauling to small electrical repairs, from landscaping to painting... He always charges a fair price and makes time for last minute projects by squeezing them in after work hours or on the weekends. I trust him and highly recommend him.

I hired Scorpion Services to replace my roof. The roof was well over 30 years old. Carlos and Neema came to my house and were never pushy, and really knew what they were talking about. Unlike other contractors I had place bids, Carlos informed me about about the process and gave me a number of options that worked within my budget. They did such a great job on my roof, over the next 6 months I have hired them to redo my deck, repair siding that has dry rot, and replace my gutters. I would not hestitate to recommend them to every friend and family member I have. Some of the most honest and hard working people I have ever hired!!

We first met their team when a salesman cold-called us. It took us a while to make a decision about what we wanted to do, but once my wife and I decided to move forward, working with Shmuel and his team was excellent. I can't say enough good about them. The project involved removing a bathroom, adding a bathroom, removing and remodeling a kitchen, adding hardwood floors, adding a gas line, upgrading an electrical box, moving HVAC ducts, wiring and hanging a chandelier, tile for a fireplace and mantle, and painting. There were structural walls that needed to be modified. They promised to get the job done in six weeks, in time for an important family gathering we had planned. We were skeptical, but bet on them, and they came through. In any project of this size, there will be unforeseen issues that come up. In all of those cases, Shmuel was excellent to work with. Some examples are: - Once we saw the lighting in the new kitchen, we wanted an extra light over the sink. He tore-up some of his work and added it and charged us for the hardware only. - We wanted a cabinet added by our front door and another by our laundry room. He added it to the work without question, and charged only for the hardware. - We decided we wanted to replace the stair railing. He helped us find bids from railing experts, and charged us the bid without any contractor markup. The extra work disrupted his planned work schedule, but he worked around it to make sure we were still done on time. - The vent over the kitchen range appeared too low to us, even though it was within code. He replaced and installed the cabinet with something smaller. No charge. - With all the demolition, he accidentally lost our Nest thermostat. When this was realized, without any questions or me having to ask, he apologized and picked-up a new one, at his cost. Some other examples of the excellent service: - Shmuel and Shalhevet helped us pick paint colors and pick kitchen appliances and cabinet styles, traveling to a number of stores with us. My understanding is that most contractors would just tell you to pick something and leave you to figure out the details. - They allowed us to live in our home during construction. At the end of each day, they spent time blocking-off areas and moving equipment (as required by code) to make the site safe for our children. He could have easily just insisted we spend a month in a hotel. - All the little things. For example, we never discussed replacing the flooring HVAC vent covers; he bought beautiful new ones that matched the wood floors we chose. We never discussed replacing outlet faces, but he felt it wasn't right to repaint and leave the old worn outlet faces. They are highly recommended!

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

Working with Steve Rodarte / D.B.R Solutions was a pleasant experience. His attention to detail and willingness to provide quality work is a thing of the past for most contractors,but not with D.B.R Solutions. I am looking forward to working with D.B.R Solutions on my future projects and would not hesitate recommending him to anyone else that is looking for Quality Workmanship!

I was having problems with my shower and asked around the local nursery moms for a plumber. Someone recommended the company Lemon Remodeling and Services. Several days after meeting with Assaf, one of their project managers, without feeling any sense of pressure, we had come together to redesign the whole bathroom. I still love it today! I have two young boys and so I didn’t have the time to fuss and look at design magazines or shop around for suppliers: all I knew was that I wanted something modern with clean lines that was functional and would still work within the designs of our period house. He had gained my trust so I gave him the go ahead to source the best quality products at the best prices. I saw he has experience so I didn’t question his judgment, suppliers or prices even once. All the sub-contractors he used for things such as plumbing and flooring were a delight, and I still use them to this day. Assaf himself was charming, trustworthy, talented and very creative. He was extremely conscientious, and left no stone unturned. He had super ideas and was very au fait with all the modern changes in the bathroom design industry. The bathroom continues to function efficiently since Assaf put it in place, and looks beautiful. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lemon Remodeling and Services.

I'm a new homeowner in Oakland and needed an engineers help with drafting my floorplan for bathroom addition permits. I decided to hire individual contractors without paying the fees of a General Contractor. Oh did I get lucky to have found Mike who not only provided excellent service in drafting but also offered his expertise on design and construction. Mike assisted with my brainstorming and troubleshooting process beyond what I had expected. He was knowledgeable about city regulations and offered sound advice on where to locate fixtures. I appreciate working with Mike to jumpstart the project and would highly recommend him for drafting and engineering services.

I would highly recommend Weather Mafi Demolition. They recently prepared my home for a major remodel which included removing 90% of the drywall, all of the insulation and a brick fireplace. His price was fair, his crews arrived on time and he completed the job on schedule. I didn't realize how messy a job this is but they draped plastic everywhere to collect the "blown in insulation" and the material that they "hand scraped" off of the remaining ceilings. When they were done they vacuumed the entire home, hauled away all of the waste material and left the jobsite ready for the framers. His crew was polite and Weather is a pleasure to deal with. I would hire this company again without hesitation. 5 stars!

I had a small fence section that was started by another contractor and it was a disaster. Nothing was level, there were concrete pillars jutting out of the ground so I fired the contractor and started looking for another one. Victor answered my post on thumbtack and I had him come over the next day to give me a quote. He's quiet, confident and quickly understood what I was trying to do and went about explaining the corrective work that would need to done and in a few minutes listed of the material needed and why the previous contractors design was flawed and ugly. Not only did he finish the project but he corrected all the mistakes the previous contractor had made and I'm very happy with the end result. I hired him immediately to fix some rotten wooden planter boxes on the side of my house. It was a much bigger job than either of us expected but he finished it under 2 days and it looks great.

Miguel did an awesome job fixing an old "skeleton only" garage to building one that is stronger, roomier and lot more functional than just a plain-old-garage. I would recommend Miguel for other jobs and use his services again for my own projects.

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.
