I hired Bob (A&B Home Expert) to do a challenging fence repair right after a snow/sleet storm. This just wasn't a regular repair because it was on a slop, snow had built up and then became a frozen sheet of ice and the fallen section pulled down the post. Bob came the day after I was contacted so that was a big plus because I have a dog that could have run away threw the fallen section. Bob completed the job with expertise! Did a fantastic job in a very timely fashion. I would strongly recommend him to anyone! I will be using Bob on future projects! As a side note, Thumbtack is a great way to make contact with local contractors. I had a great experience using Thumbtack!

Luis and Shane were very responsive, arriving the day after I reached out to find a handyman for some plumbing issues in my home. They handled 4 issues in about 2 hours and I was satisfied with their work.

Rome did extensive indoor and outdoor painting work for us in AZ at three different residences that we owned between 2008 and 2014. He also assisted us with interior trim repair/replacement, fence repair and several other projects related to the appearance of our homes. In every instance we found his work to be of the highest quality, and his prices were very competitive. He also has a high level of personal integrity and fairness which sets him apart from many contractors in todays environment. One example of this is that my wife and I always provided Rome with a key to our house, trusting him to start or stop each days work and lock up, even if we were not around at the end of the day. He is a detail orientated perfectionist when it comes to his paint work and I can recommend him without any resrvation to anyone looking for the highest quality of paint, plaster or woodwork.

Glenn was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and gave me a few options to work with regarding my window replacements and relocating my dryer vent. The best part was that he came on a Sunday when all the others I called told me they weren’t available on Sunday’s. Glenn Worked around my busy schedule to complete my project. The best part was the project only took a few hours to compete when we agreed on the date to start. All the work was done in one day. I was so happy I found Glenn. Now I know who to call when I need help repairing things around my house. And his price quotes were by far the best compared to other contractors.

I had Frankie and his crew finish my bathroom framing and put in a sonic tube and remove my chimney and satellite dishes. They were awesome. He even secured my old deck without even charging me !! They were friendly and punctual and clean!! They were worth every penny ,I will definitely hire them again for my future projects in my home.

JCEC contractors (http://www.jcecpainting.com/about.html) and painting company do more than just paint a room they actually transform a room. My wife has been watching all of the DIY shows on television and came up with an idea on changes she wanted to make to the kitchen. From her idea to completion, the transformation was amazing. We did not have to contract out to many different sub-contractors the team at JCEC did it all including electrical, tile work, woodwork and yes painting. I would strongly recommend them to anyone who is looking for someone who can do it all and at a good price.

I knew from day one that I selected the right contractor when Alby himself as the owner was on the job the entire time working side by side with his crew. The workmanship was first class. Alby paused at the end of each phase of the project to review the work with me to make sure it was to my satisfaction before he proceeded to the next phase. The final price was very competitive to the other 6 quotes that I solicited from other contractors. I would highly recommend Alby's Masonry and plan to use them for future jobs.

We needed a total bathroom renovation and fast! Irving and his crew from Jerry & Carr were the first to respond on thumbtack, showing up that day to give us a fair and affordable estimate. They started a couple days later and did an a beautiful job. The bathroom looks amazing! They were quick, thorough and didn't leave a mess like most contractors. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish! I HIGHLY recommend them!

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!

From day one Paulino was very responsive to any inquiry I had about the job. He was professional throughout. Due to traffic conditions he was a few minutes behind schedule but he gave me adequate notice of the delay. He was meticulous with the job (interior door installation), completed the job in a timely manner and cleaned up after completion. I highly recommend Paulino Home improvement to anyone who is looking for a door installer!

Contractors can be a gamble from experience. James is not. He was very responsive, quality of the work was outstanding, and his quotes were both fair and accurate. He worked with pace and with care on both our deck and office handicap ramp. Straight shooter, no surprises, Highly reccomend.

Kevin (aka: James) is an incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, creative guy. After having listened to other contractor's possible solutions, Kevin was light years ahead of anybody else in terms of his solution to my problem. My problem required a unique solution, and because of Kevin's experience, he was able to envision and execute a unique solution. I recommend him very highly to anybody who needs structural framing work done.

Michael did an amazing job fixing up various projects around our house. He was very fair in his estimate and even finished all the jobs quicker than anticipated. I definitely hope to use his services again in the near future. I've used other contractors in the past but none match his level of detail and responsiveness.

Long story short….this is the biggest renovation to my home AND THE MOST TROUBLE FREE. My home is about 100 years old and the front wrap around porch needed to be removed and rebuilt. Not an easy job….the footings had to be replaced, the foundation needed to be reinforced, the front of the house had to be jacked up, etc. I contacted Professional Home Builders and Design based upon the reviews found on Angie’s List. I met with several contractors. From the first meeting with the owner, Victor Rosado, I felt that he had a great deal of knowledge and experience and that he was an honest and upright person and that I would be in good hands. I was right. From day one Victor was on-site two times a day…sometimes 3 times, depending on what was going on. And, if at any time I had a question, Victor would get back to me the same day…many times within the hour…I was never ever left hanging, even about very minor issues. And he had great ideas about design, finishing touches and colors. His staff are also great…always out very early and staying until whenever needed…sometimes into the evening. They are very nice and professional and when I would pop out to see what was going on they would show me what they were working on and it was very obvious that they took great pride in their work. There was one worker who used to sing while he was working. I enjoyed listening to this and it also made me feel like he was happy working for this company. My brother and son have been watching the completion of the project and plan to contact Victor for needed renovations on their homes. I highly recommend this company and don’t believe that you’ll be disappointed. I love the finished product.

Al replaced the hard wood floors in our home with Bruce 5" prefinished 3/4" thick oak flooring. He did an excellent job, was here every day and cleaned up the leftover materials. Can't say enough for the excellent work and professional workmanship Al Provided. I would not think twice about hiring Al for future 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.
