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.

Mr. Carlos did a great job removing mold from my home. Out of all of the contractors who bided on the project he noticed the mold not only in the washer and dryer closet but the bedroom closet as well as underneath the flooring in the bathroom and bedroom. He was very thorough. I would recommend him to anyone who needed this service.

Delightful Contracting was truly a delight to work with. Ryan was the first of three contractors we met with for our kitchen remodel project—a project we waited nine years for! We told him our vision, and he was very upfront about what was realistic and what wasn’t. He even told us things to look out for when reviewing competitor proposals. By the time he left, we knew he was the one for the job. One contractor came in much too high, and commented our budget would only get us materials. The other contractor was over and hour late for our appointment (he ran out of gas), and extremely slow to respond. That didn’t give us a good feeling. Needless to say, Ryan was awarded the contract! He worked with us on pricing, and gave us the most bang for our buck. He went above and beyond his contractual responsibilities. For example, I couldn’t get off work for a delivery. Ryan was out picking up supplies, but left to meet the vendor at my house for the delivery. On another occasion, he cut down a non-standard door to save us the cost of a special order. Ryan has held our hand during the entire process. He suggested finishes, paint color, accessories, and made himself available via phone for any questions that came up along the way. We felt like we were hiring a trusted friend. For this reason, we had no reservations providing Ryan with keys to our home so he could come and go freely during the day. We are beyond pleased with our remodel project, and highly recommend Ryan based on price, attention to detail, and professionalism.

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.

I cannot recommend Melvin highly enough!! He was punctual, polite and very reasonably priced (by far the lowest estimate we received). We had a large amount of wood planks and about 30 large contractor bags full of old insulation from an attic renovation. We were dreading spending a day taking trips back and forth to the dump in our Jeep, and had contacted a few companies and gotten outrageously high quotes for removal. Thankfully we eventually found Melvin!! He and a coworker came out the same day I posted the job to Thumbtack and within an hour had finished the job quickly and completely. I will definitely be calling Melvin again in the future and will recommend him to anyone who needs hauling or junk removal.

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.

Herbert is outstanding, and I say that after having worked with many contractors in the last year, including several found through Thumbtack. We worked with him to convert a garage into a bedroom and were continually impressed by his honesty, punctuality, diligence and professionalism. He takes pride in his work and work ethic, and it is a true pleasure to do business with him.

Nilto and his team were fantastic! We have a baby on the way and had way too many rooms to paint to handle it ourselves. We contacted a bunch of contractors and, based on reviews and an interview, hired Nilto. Couldn’t be more happy with our decision! The paint is dry and it looks incredible! Thank you so much for the hard work!

Just wanted to say, I wish more contractors on TT we're this easy to work with. Out of ten contacts three actually showed up. The first hire never showed. Even though NDO wasn't hired first he followed up anyway which shows he cares about his work and his reputation. They did a great job. It is a pleasure to write this review. Any looking to have this to type of work done would do well to go with No Days Off Landscaping.

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.

I am so glad we selected MJ Home Services LLC for our home's basement waterproofing project. We listed the project on Thumbtack and had 3 companies respond, MJ Homes Services was one of them. One of the other companies came with a complicated and insulting sales process, that had us spending two hours looking at few brochures and lots of out of business company records of former competitors while recommending options to leave our basement busted up with another project to renovate. MJ Homes Services was different. Apart from being the first to respond and show up for a free inspection, they were very professional and studied our home's problems in detail. They were genuinely interested in solving the problem, once and for all rather than just earning the business. They came out twice for pre project assessment. The owner of the company, John, came and lead the design of the solution to remedy our flooding problems. The solution was comprehensive tackling the problem from all directions e.g. Competitive French Drain Network, Landscape Grading, Awning Construction, Sump Pump flow redirection, Concrete Patio Demolition, Surrounding Neighbor Water Flow Analysis etc. When the project started, just like most constructions, the crew ran into issues with valid grounds for variation. Rather, Brian and the team under John's leadership took the professional route to honor their commitment to working within our budget. In fact, the crew were so professionally that they made innovative design and construction choices should have costed us about 5 thousands dollars more for the project. I could not help but think what would have happened if we went with the other company. They would have been so rigid on the approach and inflexible with scope. I have no doubt in my mind that MJ Homes Services was a God sent answer to our home's basement floodings problem because we had spent thousands over the years on different remedies including a complicated sump pump system with another company to no avail. Finally, when it comes to being responsiveness and customer delight, Melissa of MJ Home Services is the Queen of it. She kept us up to date before, during and at project completion. During the project, it was on a day-to-day basis. She was also able to work with the crew to achieve a scope that's truly above contract. I am very grateful to have MJ Homes Services work on our home project. I will certainly look forward to any opportunity to use their services in future.

My experience with Mr. Manuel with valle construction, Inc was not only having a well knowledgeble construction person, but every detail before and after my whole new kitchen and full bathroom remodeling. Money was never an issue I could had spent thousands of dollars with other well know company for a very crapy job. Valle remodeling has been my greates experience for being a first time customer and renovation experience. My wife and I are thinking to invest I another property and let them take care of the rest very trustworthy and for the money and experience Can't ask for more. I fully recomend his company to future prospects, family and friends. Thanks again for such beautiful job done at my place.

Julio did several projects in our home including demolition of existing fireplace, tiling new fireplace surround and installing built in cabinetry with bookshelves and new mantle. Absolutely beautiful. We were so pleased with his work that we hired him again to install more built in cabinetry in our basement. I'm looking forward to working with him again. He is reliable, professional, courteous and by far the most reasonable price.

I hired Melvin and his workers to demolish an old deck and hot tub. He was on time and finished the job when he said he would. They left the area with nothing but dirt and hauled away everything. He did exactly what he said he was, returned my messages and was very professional the entire time. I would definitely hire him again.

For any kind of masonry/landscape work, the price starts very high. It was really difficult to find a contractor who would repair our small patio for a reasonable rate. Hauling gravel and sand and lifting stones was also not a good idea for us based on our health issues. Danny P. and his uncle made the work look easy, and even provided some of the materials. They were a pleasure to work with and the price was right! We would definitely hire them again.

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.
