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.

Glenn Scelza is a godsend. My old friend desperately needed help of a good carpenter to come and assess the benign neglect on the front of her antique home. Garage doors needed to be installed post haste, but the garage door company needed the repairs to be made first. I posted on Thumbtack and Glenn responded immediately. Glenn arrived and I could tell right away what a nice guy he is and is a seasoned carpenter/contractor. He assessed the project with a trained eye and zeroed in on what was good in terms of the construction and what looked bad to us, was very doable indeed.. He was very resourceful and made use of what could remain and shopped locally which I loved, for lumber, gutters, leaders and even found the novelty clapboard pieces to match the 1940's facade. He was very fair and open about what things would cost along with his craftsmanship which was worth every penny. I appreciate he could even work with us so late in the season even as winter weather set in. He will be present right after the holiday weekend to connect with the garage door people. When those vintage looking doors are installed the place will regain its curb appeal once again, thanks to Glenn. This guy is a keeper and I can see why is highly recommended! I add my recommendation to Thumbtack as well as our neighbors in the community. I look forward in working with Glenn on future projects. Thanks Glenn! Norm Peekskill, NY

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!!

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.

Clean/efficient/trustworthy/good craftsmanship/affordable I am usually a tough guy to please, but I have no complaints. We had a bedroom door widened and french doors put in in its place. Mike was flexible and fast in terms of his ability to come by the house, take a look at everything, and write up an estimate. We decided to hire him as he was personable, thorough, professional, and affordable. He was able to start the job very soon and completed everything quickly, working while we were at work so there was no stress of construction. Each day when he left, he left the work area spotless and hazard free. I never saw one piece of dust or debris left behind by him. The final product exceeded our expectations. Mike took the care to match the trim work on the inside of the room with the trim on the other doors and windows in that room and the trim work on the outside to match that room. We did not ask him to take this extra step but he did it because he knew it would look better, and it does. He also installed a solid wood threshold/transition between the rooms (one is hardwood and the other carpeted) because the existing hardwood in the transition was a little messed up. Again, we didn't ask him to do this, but it made the final product look so much better. With all of the extras, Mike still remained at his quoted price when the job was done. No hidden or added costs, no hastle. We will be hiring Goodman Building Company again for all of our needed carpentry jobs.

ASG was hired to paint the front of our four story apartment building. Andy was very professional and communicated with us through every facet of the project. The project was completed in a timely fashion and came out wonderful. His skills and expertise was apparent in all the work performed. I look forward to continuing to have ASG provide their services for all our painting needs.

Anthony and his company did a wonderful job in replacing the roof on my beautiful nearly 100 year old building. The roof came out magnificent and believe me this was not an easy task. The roof has many peaks and valleys, has a very steep pitch and is 2 and 3 stories high.

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.
