We were putting our home up for sale but we had some drywall/woodwork damage done by the dog and wanted to fix it prior to listing. Noel gave a fair quote, showed up on time, cleaned up the mess, and did an excellent job in repairing the damage. You couldn't tell where the damage was. After we bought another home which had worn/stained builder grade carpet, Noel ripped out the carpet in the family room/dining room/ and den and replaced it with laminated wood floors for us. What impressed us is the commitment and the willingness to help us as much as possible since we were on a time crunch. Only a few days between closings and move in. In a days notice, he painted our family room/dining room. We only had a few days between closings and move in. He picked up the flooring for us and delivered it to our new home. Worked all day Sunday to finish the job. We love the flooring. He and his son also removed a 60" wall mounted TV from our old home and then patched, sanded, and painted the wall. Once again, beautiful job. I work for a new home builder and have recommended Noel to buyers and co-workers. Wish there was a six star rating for Noel!

Sherman did a great job. Worked neat and clean, price was very reasonable. I would definitely call on P&S Custom for future work. Work entailed removing a wall A/C unit in a block wall. Replaced block and added drywall to the interior.

Mr. Snook has handled several large and small projects for my home, all on time and on budget. He did an outstanding job upgrading my living room with laminate flooring, new paint, lighting, and mounting my flat screen TV with concealed wiring and cables. He also completely remodeled my patio and transformed it into a beautiful outdoor living space which I use daily (tiled floor, installed ceiling fan and sun shade, wall mounted tv). In addition to the actual remodeling work, Mr. Snook was extremely helpful in planning the interior design elements of both rooms. He is also quite skilled at less "fun" but very necessary home repair projects, including replacing my water heater and a leaky toilet and repairing water damaged drywall. I was thoroughly pleased with all of Mr. Snook's work and will without question use him for my future home remodeling and repair needs. I have recommended Mr. Snook to several family members and friends. He did an amazing job completely remodeling my mother's 1980's era bathrooms, which substantially increased the resale value of her home and led to a quick sale when listed. Joanne L.

This company is the best. We were given a customized landscape design package tailored to our needs. We had new sod installed, beautiful plants and trees in the front and back of our home, new irrigation and the best part our retaining wall. We are very happy with the job B & G Property Management and Landscaping did for us and we will definitely recommend them to our friends and family. They get an A+ from us!!

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.
