We moved into a two-bedroom house and our designer recommended EBRR as a general contractor for our major renovation projects. Luis, the project manager, came in, listened to all our needs and specificity notated our request. We had a complete estimate for everything within only a few days including cost and time frames. Barry and EBRR was able to accommodate with all architect's drawings, all subcontractors and permits. The work was done on time and within budget, even with the inevitable surprises that always come up during renovation. They were punctual, always respectful and very neat.

I needed to have 3 Ikea kitchen cabinets assembled & hung on the wall as a floating credenza below our wall mounted tv. Cesar was on-time & professional. He cut out the back of the center cabinet to allow access to the electrical outlet & HDMI cables. I highly recommend Cesar & will contact him for my future projects.

We highly recommend EJ Painting! We are preparing a two bedroom/two bath condo in NOVA for rent and had a short timeline, and EJ did great work on short notice. He is easy to get in touch with, responsive, and does great work. He also knows and understands interior design and colors and had many great suggestions and ideas. He gave us a very reasonable quote and stuck to it, even though the job was larger than he originally thought. He had a couple of ideas once he was here that he was able to take care of on site and charged minimally extra. This saved us from finding another contractor for a couple of small things! He also hooked us up with a cleaning crew that does great work! He is friendly, he cares about the job he is doing for you, and he does great work.

David and his crew were very professional. They built a new wall, installed a door and finished all drywall for our renovated bathroom and linen closet. David was very accommodating and paid attention to our special needs, double checking specifics with us along the way. He was very easy to work with and super nice. We are super happy with the results!

After purchasing new lighting for my kitchen I ran into trouble with the wiring. Just couldn't get the fixtures to work due to the strange wiring that the previous owner has in place. Edward arrived early and took care of the problem for me. He is courteous and professional. I highly recommend him.

I hired Brandon Contractor to installed a backsplash in my kitchen and he did a great job. He came out in hours after our first contact and gave me a reasonable quote, I knew immediately that I would hire him. He and his crew came to my house two days later and did a superb job. My rack in my laundry room fell down the day before he arrived. Once he came to my house I showed him my mayhem and he said don't worry I'll fix it today. Brandon Contractors are a must hire for the job. Thank you and I will be calling him again....🤗

Kitchen back splash: I was hesitant to hire someone from just reading online reviews and now I am glad that I picked Erick to work on this project. Erick and I agreed to pricing and timing. He gave very reasonable pricing, provided guidance for all material that was needed to be purchased, and showed full commitment during the project. he was very professional and punctual. He took ample time to ensure everything was completed with excellent quality and to our 100% satisfaction. Erick used his brother's help during this project and made my kitchen look very stylish. I am attaching some pictures that I took during the project. I will add more pics for finished work product.

Paul Langway and his team completed four jobs for us in three days- installing laminate kitchen tile, putting up a new shed door, removing and replacing rotting wood around a large window, and installing a ceiling light fixture. They were a very efficient team and paid close attention to detail, putting in long hours one day to finish the shed, even while it was dark out. The shed door especially looks amazing- better than the original, which was rotting at the bottom. Paul's flooring specialist is great. They took care of purchasing all of the materials and we refunded them at the end of the project. We felt completely comfortable having him and his team in and out of our home over the course of three days, and will be contacting him in the future for other projects.

I needed someone to refresh and re-design my laundry room (if you can even call what I had a room!). Patrick came over to look at the present situation and the surrounding areas. Within a very quick time, he visualized a design, analyzed the pragmatics, and suggested in a clear and reasonable fashion a possible alternative. I had had no ideas of my own, but I knew a change was necessary. I liked his ideas and his quote was reasonable, and so I decided to proceed. Patrick dove in, repurposing old materials from the minor demolition, as well as acquiring new, appropriate, and improved materials. He was creative, hard-working, conscientious, problem-solving, responsible and timely, and always excellent with his clean-up. And his skills were versatile: carpentry, painting, minor wiring and moving of light fixtures, minor plumbing and moving of plumbing fixtures. The result was fantastic aesthetically and way more comfortable than the original layout. Additionally, the surrounding areas were improved, as the flow was changed, i.e. one now loops through the laundry room area from two entrances. I am thrilled with the new space and Patrick was a pleasure to work with. It is rare to find someone of his talents, spanning from construction knowledge and hands-on home repair to final decorating vision and implementation. I highly recommend Stare's Restorations.

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.

Had a great experience using J-Team for a utility sink repair (that fell from the wall and broke the drain pipe). I received a very reasonable preliminary quote through Thumbtack and his subsequent complimentary visit to assess the work matched that price. The work turned out to be a little trickier and longer than anticipated but it gone done very well. I liked it so much I've already asked for quotes for additional things I need done in the house (from bathroom caulking to a kitchen backsplash installation). Jaime is a great guy and I 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.
