Jorge did a great job assembling my furniture and installing my screen doors. When we realized one of the doors wouldn’t work, he suggested an alternative and even helped me do the exchange. Definitely a good handyman to have around!

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.

Actually arrived when he promised (not too common in the contractor world). He communicated regularly before the first job and contacted me immediately about a part of the job he couldn't complete today and needed additional parts for.

Couldn't be more please with the service. Luther and his team were prompt, assessed the problem in our crawlspace and came up with a reasonable solution, and cost thousands less than another contractor that was trying to gouge us. I would happily refer them to anyone. I truly wish all home services companies were as reliable, honest, and hardworking.

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.

My remodeling project is still a work in progress. Brian is providing quality workmanship, has left the work area immaculate at the end of the day, and has kept me updated and involved every step of the way with our project by providing me pictures and prices of hardware, tiles, vanities etc. which is extremely helpful to me due to my work schedule and just not finding time to shop around! It is a pleasure working with a contractor who understands our budget, and is enthusiastic in accomplishing an updated, modern, and fresh look for this older bathroom. Thanks Brian!

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.

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!

Bruce and his team were excellent. He drew very clear designs of what was to be built and the final product was clean and strong. His work product reflects his decades of experience. Most importantly, Bruce was excellent in regards to communication. He was very prompt in replying to emails and taking calls, which is something that is rare with contractors. I will be using Bruce for future work and cannot think of a better indicator of my satisfaction.

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.

I would gladly recommend Jon's work! Bel Air remodeled my kitchen and master bath, and the work is gorgeous. I couldn't be happier. Bel Air was also the most reasonably priced contractor I found after searching and interviewing several and taking many quotes. The most important piece to me is that Jon warrantees his work and replaced a faulty light switch for free when I called. That's peace of mind.

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.
