I recently hired Marty to take out a wall in my new house. It’s an old house and of course the project came with some unexpected speed bumps, but It didn’t phase Marty one bit—he came with great ideas and got the job done quickly and inexpensively. I have many other projects I’d like to have done and he is now my go-to handyman. I’m almost tempted to leave him 1 star so everyone else doesn’t fill up his calendar 😆 Thanks for a job well done, Marty! P.S. He does his own electrical and taping, as well.

I gave him the task of updating my 1980's home. I needed my master bathroom completely remodeled. He remodeled my master bedroom. Removed a skylight that was leaking and closed up the roof and repaired my ceiling. Removed the fireplace and gave me a linen closet. Ripped up the carpet and installed a new hardwood flood. Painted the bedroom. .My kitchen and dinning room needed to be completely gutted, the wall removed between the rooms and combined into one large room with an island. The cabinets needed to be stripped and refinished. He removed the soffit and added crown molding on the top of the cabinets. Took the refrigerator and pantry cabinet and installed them in the wall to enlarge the kitchen even more. He even changed the entrance from the hallway into the kitchen/dinning from squared off ceiling to an archway which gave the look of a new addition to the home. He knocked out the window in the dinning room and replaced it with a sliding glass door. Built a large back deck for entertaining. Built a gazebo right next the the deck so that I can just walk onto the deck and into the hot tub in the gazebo. Poured a concrete slab.Then installed a hot tub. It looks like a new home throughout. My family and friends would walk into my home and their mouth would just drop open in disbelief. It doesn't even look like the same home. His attention to detail reflects the years of experience this man has in carpentry. When you explain what changes you would like to do to a home. He can tell you what will work and what won't. He brought to my attention that the electrical wiring was not done correctly when my home was built. So I had him correct that as well. Hiring Jacques to update my home was the best decision I ever made. Spending the money for updating and repairing my home was well spent. My home is worth a lot more thanks to Jacques. I would highly recommend him for any size job. He is a one man operation, but gets the job done like a whole crew of men. He constantly keeps the job site clean so the dust is minimal. I would not hesitate to hire this man. He is professional, knows what he is doing and can be trusted with your home.

Thiago did an AMAZING job! We couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. The room we had him paint came out even better than we imagined and he went above and beyond for us. He fixed holes in the wall, etc and finished the job with 2 coats of paint/primer and trim within 6 hours. Besides a job done extremely well, he is professional and courteous & a genuinely nice person - . We will definitely use him for many more projects in the future, thank you Thiago :)

Shane laferriere was a through professional and just by looking at his demeanor you could judge the kind of perfectionist he was in his craft. You wont believe he worked so hard to wall mount our TV through swivel mounting bracket , a very complex and unique bracket of its kind when it almost seem impossible to hang. Continuously for 4 hours he kept on trying to solve the difficult puzzle of my swivel mounting bracket and finally mounted it perfectly on the dry wall. He was very humble soft spoken and a very genuine person whom you can rely upon for getting ur work done. I would highly recommend him for TV mounting.

Dan Williams handeled a major restoration of our home for us. This included new wood floors, refinished exisiting floors, painting the trim and walls in a 2800 square foot house and upgrading our kitchen. The project took about 7 weeks and was a bit over schedule but not due to Dan's organization skills. The quality of his work is outstanding and he has a fine sense of interior design which is a benefit to the homeowner. His subcontractors are wonderful and his due dates are always met. As an added benefit, Dan is an outstanding person with a great sense of humor and we would hired him for any projects we have in the future.

I had Alby reconstruct s retaining wall in my back yard and install a front walk off my front porch. He came when he said he would and did an excellent job on both projects. The work was very professional and he was extremely pleasant to work with. The cleanup afterwards was nicely done. I would recommend him to anyone and will gladly use him for future projects.

The guys did an amazing job in my kitchen and my basement. I originally wanted just new countertops and new floors in my basement, but as the job progressed I knew I needed to take advantage of the fact that I had amazing craftsmen working in my home. They were so responsive and open with their material and labor costs I truly couldn’t resist asking them to do more jobs for me. I’m not much of a person who leaves reviews, but since they did such an amazing job I feel as though it’s important for anyone looking for a new kitchen anywhere in Nassau and and Suffolk County New York that Dimension Restoration and Construction is by far their best and most competitively priced option. I did get other quotes which the office girl Ishita suggested I do and she was right to do so. The prices I received from allure and a bunch of other kitchen and bath companies was DOUBLE what Dimension Restoration and Construction charged me. I have to say this has been hands down the easiest remodel I have ever experienced in my history of owning my home. Thank you Dimension!

If you are looking to hire painters...hire these guys!!! Marcelo and his worker from BNG were awesome! The price was very fair and the work was amazing! We had a 16ft high wall painted as well as the stairs and living room and all the trim in mentioned areas. These guys were so fast and that included two coats on everything. Their work was top notch, they paid attention to every detail. I did not have to ask them to fix anything and the same cannot be said for experiences we have had with other painters. They worked fast but not rushed...they were just that good! They were also very neat! I highly recommend them and will be using the again in the near future. Infact, we asked them for a quote for another job while they were here!

This was my second time using thumbtack to hire a house cleaner. The first company I hired I wasn’t impressed and was discouraged. I gave it a shot and hired her and I am VERY satisfied! She came in and asked questions making sure she hit all the areas I wanted deep cleaned. She left my walls, floors and house looking spotless and smelling pleasant! I like the job she has done sooo much that I have hired her permanently. I’m looking forward to the days she cleans my home!

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 had a bathroom from the 1970's complete with a blue tab and tile. All the tiles along the tub were falling out and leaking. I called Bathfitters, and they wanted an exorbinate amount to fix it. Tony came out and gave me some fantastic ideas. First of all, he suggested we retain the blue tub, which I wanted to do, and which makes the bathroom unique. Then he suggested a bring in a neutral wall tile, BUT add aborder of blue tile that would match the bathtub and bring the room together. He also quoted me for a new floor, painting the wall, installing a new toilet, and moving and reinstalling a heavy cabinet. He work was impeccable. He was always on time. He price was unbelievably less than Bathfitters to do all the work. He also did extra work, like personally refinishing some work along the border of the shower. He went out of his way to do an amazing job. I would highly recommend him for his attention to detail, creativity, and willingness to work with the client.

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.
