Jason was good. Replaced both valves on pipe in the basement. His work is excellent. The only thing I was not aware is the price quoted did not include parts. It included labor only. I would recommended that this be made clear for future quotes so that proper expectation is set.

We had a very positive experience with Marty. We hired Marty to install a garbage disposal in our new home. Marty answered all of our questions and gave us some good suggestions for disposals. When we were ready to have it installed, Marty worked around our schedule to accommodate us. Everything worked so well, we hired Marty to do some additional work in our basement with adding duct work for our gas dryer. Marty is professional, punctual, friendly, and very hard working. We will certainly call on Marty in the future if we need any additional work done around our home.

Edison and Jeff are a class act! They did a super job installing and insulating our basement ceiling. The job is perfect! They are very professional, courteous and reliable. They showed up to work when they said they would be there. We were impressed that they worked so carefully and left the basement very neat considering the Sheetrock, insulation and compound that was used! Prior to working they were very patient and thorough with us as we asked plenty of questions. There was minimal dust left behind because they made sure everything was properly covered prior to working. They are very pleasant to work with and their price was quite reasonable. We will use them to do more work in our home. Thanks for a fantastic job JCEC!!

I had a drainage overflow issue that flooded my basement. It was a very messy situation. I reached out to a few Plumbers via Thumbtack, but decided to move forward with Al. Working with Al was great! He was very responsive, professional, and has a great personality. He is definitely an expert in what he does. It was indeed a pleasure working with Al.

For U Builders replaced 7 basement windows for us. The introduction/quote visit was excellent. Really nice folks! Follow up was good. Brandon stayed on top of our order and kept us informed. Install was great. Leon tailored the trim to the space so it wasn't a "one size fits all" install. Very much appreciate that - and they were done earlier in the day than we expected. This would be a 5 star review if the time between the initial appointment and the installation hadn't been over 6 weeks. We understand the windows come from PA, and there was the Thanksgiving holiday in there, but that's twice as long as unexpected/were told.

    Had my kitchen completely redone. John was amazing. He listened to my concerns and made me aware of things I didn't think of. He was respectful to me and my family and always on time. I felt complete confidence every step of the way. I found his price very reasonable for a high quality job and his knowledge helping me through the process. My basement is next!

    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.
