Harry's communication was excellent, responded within two hours to each contact. We hired Harry to fix a leak in our double-bowl kitchen sink. He quickly isolated the problem, and repaired it. He was knowledgeable, efficient, neat and polite. Very "husband-for-hire", I felt comfortable having him in our home. My husband asked him to fix a problem with one of our garage door openers. Once again, he isolated the problem, solved it and fixed it. His price was lower than he quoted (first visit and quote were no charge) and very, very reasonable. Overall, outstanding experience with Harry, we will be calling again and again.Thank you, Harry!

Our experience with G and M Landscaping was great. We hired G&M to take care of some building repair (interior and exterior) that was needed in order for us to receive our security deposit back at the end of a lease. Mario Villasenor was a pleasure to work with. I contacted G & M on a Friday, Mario came out to the job site the following Monday to confirm pricing, and completed the job on Wednesday of the same week. We are very happy with their efficiency, price & the final product. Thank you guys!

My husband said he was awesome! He called ahead to come early because he was available. He put the armoire together and then it didn’t fit through our bedroom door and he said “ don’t worry about it”... proceeded to take it apart and put it back together!!! Above and beyond!! And a “ super nice guy” !!

I had a very good experience moving. Chris’s company was very accommodating and helpful. I was stressed by the move and he was able to calm all my fears and got the job done quickly and smoothly. They moved an entire house of furniture to my new apartment with no problems and a garage full of boxes and stuff to a storage unit at a different location. They did all of this in a few hours, they were quick and professional. The cost was very affordable for all of the work they performed. I highly recommend this company for all your moving needs.

TODD ARRIVED TEN MINS EARLY READY TO CHECK OUT MY PROJECT. HE ADVISED ME TO FIX THE GUTTER AND DRAIN PIPE THAT WERE DAMAGED FROM THE STORM TODAY AND AND ORDER PARTS TO REPAIR THE SIDING. WE AGREED ON THE WORK AND PRICE. HE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB. AFTER HE FINISHED, I ASKED HIM A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT MY GARAGE DOOR OPENER AND BEFORE I ASKED HIM , HE WAS CHECKING IT TO SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. HE SPENT OVER AN HOUR LOOKING AT IT AND CHECKING THE ELECTRICAL SWITCH. HE LEFT WITH THE INTENTION OF RESEARCHING IN ON INTERNET. I MENTIONED A FEW OTHER PROJECTS AND I THINK HE WILL BE LONG-TIME FRIEND AS WELL AS MY "GO TO PERSON FOR ADVICE AND FUTURE WORK". LET ME CLOSE BY SAYING THAT I HAVE NEVER MET A MORE FRIENDLIER OR MORE HONEST PERSON WILLING TO HELP THAN TODD.

Top notch quality job by Alby at my house. Had a problem with water seeping into my garage through a side door. Alby came and looked at the job and within a week was at my house fixing the situation. Not only did he fix the water problem....he ordered me a new door and installed in flawlessly. Outstanding job done at a reasonable price. I have other work needed at my house and will be hiring Alby again with hesitation. Thanks Alby and Flory!!

We found Bruce on Thumbtack and this was the first time we took a quote from someone on this app. Our first impressions were great! For those who have had work done before, getting a contractor to show up on time when they say they will be there is half the battle sometimes. Bruce showed up when he said he would be there with what he needed to quote the job (again I cannot tell you how many times contractors will show up with nothing). Very professional and left a good first impression. We eventually hired him for the job of designing and building built ins around our fireplace. He based his designs of some ideas I found online, but his architectural skills of aesthetically designing the project to fit into our space were excellent and exactly what we wanted from him! The end result (which turned into a phase 2 project to again design and build an aesthetic beam and pillars separating our open floor plan and flow into the built ins he just made) was literally perfect. Matched our taste, design of the house and the craftsmen ship was some of the best I have seen. I don't like to talk cost because everyone has their own opinion on what is considered expensive however what I can say is he had 3 change orders on the whole project (one of which was a good size relatively speaking to the built in project) and he was clearly very fair and right in line with my expectations. This speaks volumes on the type of person and businessman he is. A++ contractor and will 100% be using him again in the future!

This was my first experience working with Thumbtack and For U Builders. I have a small house, and in the past, many contractors have simply not returned my calls because the job was considered "too small to bother." For U Builders installed 2 new custom exterior doors on my home. From the very beginning, Brandon (scheduling) and John (owner) were very communicative -- we had to schedule around the door delivery, and they were able to fit in my project as soon as the last door arrived. Stephen (Carpenter) is amazing! He made it look so easy and was attentive to every detail -- my house was built in the 1930s, so adjustments were necessary to make everything fit. When the job was finished, there wasn't a trace of dust or debris anywhere! I am very, very happy with the results, and will definitely work with For U Builders in the future. The entire team are professional, friendly, efficient and a joy to work with! Thank you!

I chose Dakota Builders to make some major upgrades to my manufacturing facility prior to seeking ISO-9000 certification. This included remodeling seven offices and building a 2500 sf free standing enclosure for the Inspection Department. The shop area required several partition walls for air ducts, electrical outlets, etc. I explained to Kevin what I needed and he took care of everything including design, build, finish, and permits. Came out perfect. I would recommend Dakota Builders to anyone that asks.

I hired Mike to renovate our family room to give it an updated look. Work included taking down old dark paneling, new sheet-rock, taping, painting, new trim around the base of the room and around the windows, installing 3 new windows and a new slider door. Mike was timely and consistent from beginning to end, from phone calls and emails to showing up when he said he would be there. His work was priced fairly and his attention to detail is something I admire. I can't stress enough how clean he kept the room while working. Always using drop cloths and vacuuming everyday before he left. I get tons of compliments of our new updated room and I would highly recommend Goodman Building Company! I have already talked to Mike about the next few projects, updating my kitchen and bathroom in a few months!

I cannot say enough good things about Superior. The crew showed up in time, kept the work areas clean and did an amazing job. They worked long hard hours and managed to side my house and garage in 4days. The man that gave us the quote for the job was knowledgeable and respectful. He didn't make us feel like we were just another sale. We obtained 4 quotes and Superior was by far the best choice. I would recommend them to anyine.

Tim was just what was required for this stair building job. He was timely on the first appointment to discuss the job and prompt on the day to perform the task. In addition, Tim provided precisely what we was necessary and even came in under the projected price, which was an accurate Materials / Labor breakdown. After this good experience we are already looking for additional projects he can contribute to our whole house renovation (turned new construction). Thank you, Tim, and we look forward to seeing you again at the property or around the community. Tom (Westbrook, CT)

My husband and I hired Elite Stoneworks to build a patio in our backyard. Stan came out to give an estimate within 2 days of my first call to him. The pricing was great and it got done within a week! We added a stone wall to the job and we are so happy with the finished product!

We could not be happier with Dennis's work....our house looks amazing. It is a late 1800's construction that required a complete lead abatement and restoration. Dennis and his crew stripped it down to bare wood meticulously, replaced clapboards and trim, repaired the back porch and antique garage doors, and today it is a show piece, which the Historical Society wants to include in their next house tour! Dennis was instrumental in guiding us toward the perfect color scheme and design, which admittedly was not our original idea, but in retrospect turned out perfectly....we can't thank Dennis and Pro Quality enough for all they did. Dennis goes above and beyond to get every last detail just right, and his customer's satisfaction is clearly the highest priority. A true master at what he does....

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.
