Thank you Ed and your team for everything! I had originally requested some household debris removal out of my basement. Ed came out on site a few days ahead of time to take a look at the junk I wanted to remove and gave me a more than fair estimate based on the amount of junk I had to be removed. My basement is 1500 square feet and I had about two dump trucks worth of clutter in my basement. Soon after Ed discussed the pricing I knew that I wanted to use his company based on his professionalism and ethics. The day of the work, Ed had two dump trucks out on site and all the debris removed from my basement in no time at all! I coundn't beleive how effective his crew was in getting the job done. I have already referred my neighbors to his company because of the high quality of work his company does. Thanks again Ed!

Antonio fixed a drywall patch in my finished basement. He was on time and provided updates while he was working on the project. His prices are fair and he did a great job. I will be contacting Antonio again.

We had a long list of things to be done before listing our home for sale. Jenrii with Ordonez Home Improvement did an excellent job tackling every project. Jenrii enclosed the landing where we had removed a handicap ramp - this was not an easy repair and required good carpentry skills. He also installed new closet wood bi-fold doors in a basement bedroom. Again, not an easy task as they had to be “fitted” to the closet. His troubleshooting skills were evident here. He replaced two old light switches, four electric outlets, and a bathroom vanity light fixture. These were only a few of the things he did. Jenrii is very professional, polite, thorough, and responsive. He texted us each morning on the days he worked to let us know what time to expect him. He works quickly and does excellent work for extremely reasonable rates. I would not HESITATE to recommend him for small jobs to larger remodeling projects. I was a commercial real estate project manager for 15 yrs, building shopping centers and office buildings - so I can definitively say that Jenrri knows what he is doing and does it very, very well.

We absolutely loved working with José and his team to tile our basement floor with ceramic wood-looking tile, expose a brick wall, and install new toilet and a wall-mounted sink. He works FAST and within budget. Extra things we needed done were added at very reasonable extra expense ($40-60 to repair an unexpected drywall hole behind a mirror). His team does beautiful work, and José made sure every bit of trash or demo material was taken away. They also went above and beyond to make things look nice. For example, I don't think they charged me extra when they plastered around our baseboards and it looks soooo much better! They also patched a little hole left by a past electrician's job. They took extra good care of our space as if it was their own home. We also like that he respected our desire to further finish our space ourselves ( we are ok with doing our own painting). I can't say enough good things. We will definitely hire José and Brandon Contracting for our next job.

My wife and I hired Paul to paint our basement, kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and living room before we moved in to our new home. We are extremely pleased with the service provided and it was all done at a very reasonable price. Paul was very personable, punctual and responsive during the whole process. We have a few more rooms left in our home and if we were to get them painted, we would not hesitate to contact Paul for the job!

I contacted Picture Perfect Home Improvements or this year to take two rooms and combine them to one to make a bar/lounge area while still maintaining some storage space. One room already had an existing wet bar area used for a kids play room and a closet, the other room was a storage room. Sheldon tore down the wall and closet dividing the two rooms and erected a wall to secure a storage closet space. In addition, Sheldon found a way to save on cost by using existing materials from the demolition to build walls and most of the bar, The results are amazing! I am very satisfied with the detail and professionalism that Sheldon exhibited and the dedication he took to do things correctly. I would definitely recommend him to anybody. I even hired him to do other work around the house as well such has installing air vents in the basement as the basement had duct work but no airflow as well as other miscellaneous work! I'm very happy with his work!

We needed drywall installed for our 1st floor basement ceiling. John was always prompt, arriving when he said he would. Drywall was installed, taped, mudded, and sanded. Looks great!

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

I had a pretty bad and complicated leak on my first floor and basement that were partly linked but also separate issues. I got a few different quotes but MJ Home Services is the only one I felt would actually resolve my leak issue, which they did! They were extremely persistent and very professional. I am very happy that I no longer have to deal with a leaky ceiling and basement and they also got rid of all the mold in my walls and throughout the house. I would recommend them for any leak issue, they won't stop until it has been fixed.

Nery offered a fair price and was able to start the work very quickly. He and his crew did a great job painting and caulking our newly finished basement. They are even going to come back to touch up after our cabinets are getting installed. Would definitely recommend them!

Tim and his crew did a great job on our basement finishing! Tim was very knowledgeable throughout the process and was very accommodating to with our busy schedules. He and his crew were very trustworthy as most of the time they worked in the house while we were away. Special thanks to Neil and the other gentleman on the team. They were always very friendly and responsive when I needed anything or had a question. My only negative, hence 4 stars, would be that I would have liked to only have had Tim as the sole POC versus us having to deal one on one with the other contractors on the project as it made for a lot of calls and additional tasks to manage. This was our first project so we were not really sure how everything worked. All in all, they did a great job and made our space beautiful! We would definitely use again for any project!

The J-Team has done 2 projects for me. A finished basement (1500 sq ft, 3 bedrooms, 2 bath) and a complete single family home (approx. 2000 sq ft). Both jobs were OUTSTANDING! Trustworthy, punctual, detailed and reasonably priced are words I would use to describe the J-Team. The only person I'll use.

We had a French drain installed (by another company) and then needed someone to come fix all the walls and floors in our basement. We talked with a couple of contractors and we felt comfortable with this one and the price was better than most others. Once they got into the repair it was found that the repair was much larger than we could see. They were able to make all the additional repairs with only one extra days work. They did a good job and my walls and floors look like they should. My only issue was that there was a miscommunication where I expected them on Friday but they wanted to make sure everything was dry so they were not coming on Friday. They finished the job on Monday.

They did a great job remodeling my basement bathroom. A very good job. The only negative was that there was a period of days prior to the project starting where communication stopped and I was unsure if the project was still on. It was all good in the end but had me worried for a few days.

Jorge and his crew did a fantastic job renovating our entire basement. We had extensive water and mold damage, and the entire basement had to be gutted by a mold remediation company. After all the mold was removed, Jorge cleaned and put up new drywall, installed new cabinetry and countertop, flooring, did a great job repainting, installing doors and many other tasks. Throughout the process he was courteous, professional, and always had a can-do attitude. He worked in a timely manner and his pricing was competitive. We will be using him again and we definitely recommend him.

Our pipe in the basement busted and we were flooded from the storage in the basement to the bedroom down to the living room, and my basement was a mess someone referred us to Cletus and I was impressed at how fast him and his workers took care of my basement in a professional way, and when it was time for the basement to be fixed I told my husband that I want Cletus to handle the job, and we were at the hotel for two months while he did the job infact I was so impressed at the way he handled our properties and the manner of work he did that I had to refer him to other people that were in the hotel with us and now we are back to our house looking even better than before the pipe busted. He changed my kitchen floor to tiles made my kitchen cabinets look new without spending money to buy a whole new cabinets,also my wood floors I was going to remove them but after seeing how he polished it, is like new again. one of the things me and my husband like about God's Glory is the way Cletus explained what he was going to fix in our house very simple no cutting corners and all the things he said he would do, he did, thank you so much Cletus especially for my kitchen I love it and I spend a lot time in there now, you are the best God bless your company

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.
