I had a large single family house that needed to be demoed and within hours I given Ed a call. Other contractors I knew were not qualified to do the job and had total faith in EBRR handling the project. Ed beat all of the other estimates I had for the work and the quality of work was superb! Make sure you have EBRR do all your demolition needs.

Very satisfied with the level of service. The contractor arrived on time and performed the job efficiently. He made a couple of recommendations to help improve my plumbing issues. I took those suggestions and had him install them. Things are working better than before. I will definitely call on 1st Home Pro Services again if I ever need other plumbing work. Great Job!

Jennri Ordonez and his team did an excellent job in helping me prepare my unit for sale! I requested painting services and hole patching in several rooms, re-caulking of sections in the bathroom, and a full cleaning. His prices were very reasonable and his team's work was really high quality. I would definitely go to him again and recommend him to others.

I typically do not ever write reviews, but this contractor is a special exception to the point that not doing so would be wrong. Words truly cannot express how fortunate I feel that I was able to work with this crew, and how lucky I am that they reached out to me. We needed a renovation project done on the first floor of our rental property, and after meeting with several other contractors, we were starting to feel like finding a reliable contractor who could start working on it before mid to late-August at a reasonable price was a lost cause. Then, we came across Brandon Contractor. Not only did they quote us an extremely reasonable price that was less than half of other quotes we had been given, but they also scheduled us in sooner than anyone else we talked to. To make things even better, they were able to start working on our project almost a week earlier than originally planned due to some postponements on other projects. Once they started working, I was blown away by how hard this crew works. They worked from 8 am to 6 pm, only taking a break to eat lunch, and didn't take any shortcuts in terms of quality and detail (they honestly might have cared about getting it done exactly right more than I did). Also, perhaps most importantly, they never once even mentioned raising the quote despite the project turning out to be much bigger (requiring more materials/man hours) than originally expected. To top it all off, the crew cleaned up after themselves each and every day that they were here, and completed the project faster than anybody else told us they would be able to do it even though they had multiple other projects going on at the same time. There is no doubt in my mind that any time I have a project that needs to be done to make our property look better, Brandon Contractor will be the first contractor I contact. They are by far the best crew I could've found, and I couldn't be happier with the results of their work!

Johnny was awesome. He arrived on time and demolished my shed in less than 3 hours. He also did not hesitate to go above and beyond to complete the job. His rates were extremely affordable and he even cleaned up before he left. I will definitely use him again for any and all demolition and hauling needs.

Jorge did an awesome job on my staining and painting project. Bonus points for working around the other contractors who were putting in pavers and fixing concrete work on site. I feel I got an excellent price. And finally I was impressed that he kept me updated. He did everything right. Great job. Will call again.

Gary arrived on time and finished what had been quoted as a 3-5 hr job in 1.5 hrs. It was all demolition and no junk removal. $400 for demolition only. I would have liked a price reduction because the job was easier than expected but I didn’t ask for it so that’s on me. I’m actually glad that it didn’t take up much of my day.

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!

J-Construction is awesome!!!They were very friendly, did great work, and were very reasonable. It's scary when you use these services because you never know what you may get. J-Construction relieved all my fears and exceeded all my expectations. Jaime understood the scope of what I was trying to do and knowing I was on a limited budget, made helpful suggestions that I hadn't thought of that saved me money. They did absolutely beautiful work; I am happy to have found a contractor that can do so much and that I can trust. I was having such bad luck with contractors that I feel so lucky to have found them. I plan to use them for any and all future projects. I highly recommend J-Construction, you wont be disappointed.

I cannot say enough about Alex and his crew. They are, by far, the most professional contractors with whom I have ever worked. Their craftsmanship is unrivaled, and they care deeply about ensuring their customers receive the best product. Their prices are competitive, and their work comes with a one-year guarantee. Highly recommend!

A tree outside our house was struck by lightening and threw branches on our house. It wasn't until three months later during a series of torrential rainstorms that we discovered it punctured our roof (all the contractors missed it!) and was leaking. Wilder came out and inspected the damage within hours of me contacting him. He gave a fair quote and returned as soon as it was safe to complete the repairs. He was timely in his work and even did a little more shingle repair than we originally agreed upon (he discovered more in need of replacement when he was up there). He took pictures of each step of his work to show that he did the work he promised, and followed up with me at the close of business to confirm the work was okay. Wilder made a very stressful event pleasant to fix. We plan to contact him for future repairs and recommend him to our friends.

I cannot say enough good things about United Contractors. I had to remodel my kitchen, and after having to suffer a bathroom remodel with another company, I was skeptical about having to go through this process again. However, I was lucky enough to find Carlos and Ulrich. They were simply great- professional and honest. Not only did they provide me with the best rate I could find but also their work was impeccable. They delivered what they had promised within the established time frame. I know they will be my first choice in my future works and I recommend their services to anyone who is doing a small or big project.

David did an excellent job painting the inside of my home! It's not easy to find trustworthy contractors in Potomac, most try to scam you into something you don't need or charge a ridiculous price because of the area. However, with David, my husband and I could tell immediately that he truly cares about the service his business is providing, and wants you to be happy. He was very quick to respond to my call, gave me a great price, and made sure that I was happy with everything before he left. He was also clean! Very skilled painter.

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.

Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.
