This is my second project with Tony completed for me. Tony completed my walk -in closet so beautifully that I wanted him to transform my basement into my dream home office. The basement was cold and boring. Tony made it warm and inspiring. He walked through the space and asked a lot of questions to understand what I wanted and made many great suggestions that were far more greater than mine with his experience. Tony took my vision and again made it into an amazing reality. Tony covered all the walls with sheet-rock and put carpet on the floor and built all the shelving for the office. He completed the project in a timely manner, was professional and fair with his price and I felt completely safe having him in my home. For a single woman that is very important. I HIGHLY recommend Tony! The next project I do in my home I will definitely be contracting him.

John and his assistant did a fantastic job in my basement. He even fixed a few things that were not part of our initial agreement. If you want a fast and clean job in a fraction of what other contractors charge, he is your guy. Highly recommended.

Sam is a very personable and professional and also competent and experienced at drywall application. He was able to deliver when other drywall businesses wouldn’t provide a quote due to the age of Home and complexity of the job. He installed drywall over our kitchen walls which had multiple different surfaces including stone and wood panels. There were many different shapes to adapt it to due to the cabinets and counters which we were keeping. His communication is excellent. When there was one area in need of attention he handled it immediately to our satisfaction. He was affordable and didn’t try to high bid us. We will definitely keep Sam in mind for future jobs at our home. He is the best.

I have NEVER been SO PLEASED with any independent contractor, as I am with Glenn! We had an electrical issue in our finished basement. It was quite scary, with outlets smoking. Glenn came out, analyzed the problem, went to Home Depot, bought what he needed, and fixed the problem! He quoted me a price of $225 to come out. I assumed it would be much higher to fix the problem. It turned out to be the entire price! I would recommend Glenn to anyone, for any problem! I will never use anyone else! He was prompt, thorough, listened to my concerns, explained everything in full, and I slept very well last night, knowing my house would not burn to the ground due to faulty wiring from the previous owner! Thank you, Glenn!

Where do I begin? Benny EXPERTLY replaced my residential heating unit, fixing my 3 previous HVAC guys' mistakes and shortcuts in the process, the biggest of which was a huge condensation problem slowly destroying my chimney, this without the need of installing an expensive chimney liner ☺. And when he discovered air being vented over fiberglass house insulation - a big no-no - he spent at least 3-4 hours removing the insulation at no extra charge, just to do the job right, and because of his concern for our health. He also installed a central AC unit at the same time, which I LOVE. I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the extra intake adjustable vent he suggested and installed near the unit in the basement, which recirculates cold/cool air from the basement to the rest of the house when I open this vent and run the fan only function on the unit, cooling the house on those warm not hot days, making the need of running the actual AC unit often unnecessary and saving me $$$. And after he reconfigured the duct work some, so that the reusable hepa filters he provided to us fit snugly in the system, our allergy symptoms immediately became a thing of the past ☺☺☺. He also asked me what kind of thermostat I would like, and installed the perfect thermostat for me, and also color-coordinated it to my decor no less. Beautiful! I love it. And when my water heater recently gave up the ghost, Benny rearranged his schedule to replace it asap, along with adding shut-off valves going to the water heater (perfect), another expert installation of another fine quality unit, these jobs WELL WORTH their very reasonable costs...I've never written a review before for anything, but felt compelled to sing Benny's praises. From now on he's the only HVAC/plumber for me. Do not think twice!

Rob and Carl were really nice guys. They were super flexible as I needed to call them back 3 times to complete a rather intricate job of hanging IKEA cubbies in my daughter's room. They built them, painted them, and then came back to attach them to the wall. When I called them for the work originally, I didn't realize it would be that complicated. They also helped with small things like hanging some paintings and building a storage unit for the basement. They are friendly, professional and knowledgable. I will definitely use them again. Their pricing is fair, I actually gave them extra for the amount of time they put in for my project. (took longer than expected)

Hello Everyone, Just wanted to share my success story with you, I hired STP and Home Decor to hang drywall in my unfinished basement the I had another contractor begin. Unbenonced to me at the time the previous contractors work was less then commendable. Joseph and his crew came into my home treated me with dignity and respect corrected the other contractors mistakes and gave me an awesome price. Now that my drywall is hung I have hired them to comple the painting and put down my new floor I'm sure it will be spectacular. I look forward to sharing the total transformation of my new living area with you thanks to Joseph of STP and Home Decor

We discovered mold in the basement wall and underneath laminate floor few weeks after we moved into our new house. Unfortunately this was missed by the home inspector. We had redo the full basement (1350 sq ft). This included dry wall, new ceramic tile, fireplace, theatre room, electrical work etc. Tim helped us during this painful times. He was able to find the source of the problem (water leak) which I think needed a lot patience and detective work. He always gave us a honest opinion and has a vast wealth of knowledge that you can not get on the internet. Not only is he pleasant and personable, but a stickler for perfection. He followed up on every last detail until the job was completed. The result was outstanding as we now have a basement with a very modern look. Since then we used his services numerous times and also refered him to my friends who shared a similar opinion.

Had the paint on my driveway removed. Rafi called when he said he would, showed up when he said he would. Spent the entire day which was longer than he estimated. They stayed until the job was finished without raising the price. Did a nice job and cleaned up afterwards. A pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend them.

I have had the opportunity to meet and speak with Kevin about a future basement finishing project. Kevin is a nice and down to earth professional. I had the pleasure of past and/or current customers respond to my reference check in which they provided nothing but wonderful reviews for Kevin's professionalism, honesty, fair pricing and quality work. I look forward in working with Kevin on our basement project in the near future and cannot wait to leave a review once it is completed. Thank you Kevin.

I had Ryan and his team out to complete a paint job in my living room, dining room, high foyer, and hallway. They were excellent to work with from the beginning. They were able to complete the job in a timely manner and were very professional. I liked their service so much that I have booked an additional paint project with them for my large finished basement. I also learned that they finish garages! I will be having them back to complete that as well!

After interviewing a couple of contractors, we were thrilled to find Chris. He was always prompt, professional, and reasonably priced. Our basement went from a concrete unfinished space, to a beautiful new room for our family to enjoy. Chris is an excellent craftsman, and he made sure that the new renovation fit beautifully with our historic 1700's home. We highly recommend Chris.

Can't say enough about how great of an experience we had with McGann Renovations. Our basement flooded with the heavy rain and we needed the issue fixed and repaired ASAP. In less than 72 hours, they had the mess cleaned up, removed, dried, and had a new laminate floor down without a hitch in the process. Conor is great to work with; very professional and communicative throughout the entire process. Wouldn't think to work with anyone else!

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.
