We just had George come to our home to do some molding and build us a half door, along with hanging several pictures and patching up some dry wall. George was on time, professional and provided quality work. He worked all day, without a break and was very personable. We will definitely be using George again.

Steve Sanford and his crew have worked on a number of projects in our home and have done excellent work at competitive prices. 1) He built all our kitchen and bathroom counters with beautiful granite. 2) He designed and built a Jacuzzi in our master bath. 3) He just finished building 15 feet of wall units in our office. Steve was always accessible, was on top of all the different subcontractors he used for the different projects. Our home is in the Silver Oak in Sarasota. The quality of his work was excellent and each job was completed on an agreed upon timetable. I would not hesitate to use him again for any future projects.

Freeman Enmeier is a complete professional. He came in to our commercial construction (church building) after having to fire a previous general contractor. We had lost over 7 months and thousands of dollars. The church was desparate. In came Freeman, fixed the mess and went above and beyond the call of duty. He tirelessly worked with myself, our architect, the city, and all our subcontractors with excellence in mind. Because of his diligence we received a grant award for coming in on schedule. At the end of the project he not only came in on time, but to our surprise UNDER budget. He actually passed on his savings to us. What a class act. We not only got a building but gained a friend. I have already asked him to be my personal contractor for my new home. I would recommend Freeman Enmeier for any project large of small. As he says... He bids the job, he DOES the job.

I had Blaine remodel my condo kitchen last year and, then, totally rebuild my house that burned down this year. As the general contractor, he took care of getting permits, tearing down the old house, hiring and supervising sub-contractors and got everything done in a timely and professional manner. I have been very pleased with his work and highly recommend him as a building contractor to do any kind of construction work.

Jason really listened to what we wanted and enhanced our plan to give us what we actually needed. The entire project was a great collaboration, made possible because Jason is not just an installer of pre-made cabinetry. He is a custom craftsman of the highest quality that we have had the pleasure of working with over 40 years of homeownership.

Richard and Chris did a remodel of my master bath and another bathroom. They are organized, responsive, easy to work with, price is very fair, and the job was completed on time and on budget. They clean up every day when they are finished working and make as little mess as is possible. I have recommended them to my friend for her bathroom remodel, and I will use them again when I re-do my outdoor kitchen area. Very pleased with the results - my bathrooms look great.

About

I have staff to handle any job, from something simple to additions and rebuilds. My staff gets most of the money from the repairs. I set it low and only keep a small amount of the job. I'm in the business to get value for both my staff as well as the customer. We're based as a very reasonable cost provider because of 1) fixed income customers, 2) people are hurting financially and need our help, and 3) I have a charitable arm of my company that I use to assist in any additional cost our neighbors/customers can't afford. Thanks. Mike

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 architects work?

Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

How do architects charge for their services?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.

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.
