Prompt and professional and did exactly what he said he would do to fix my deck. I have no more issues with what he fixed for me. The price was reasonable. I will always call on Scoa construction for all my repairs and remodeling.

We had a deck that needed new deck boards and the railings replaced.. After consulting with Swansey Construction we decided to use them for our Deck Makeover. The crew showed up the first morning demo'd the railings and deck boards and replaced the decking. On the second day our railings and one new post was replaced. We are very pleased as the work was completed in two days and all the rotted and scrap wood was hauled away at completion. We highly recommend Swansey for future jobs.. Robert and Sherry

easy to communicate with; on time and followed directions. Available immediately. Unlike so many handymen and contractors in this region who need to be hand held and want to cut corners, I enjoyed working with Buck and will use his services again.

The project is not quite complete, but Jeff has been awesome every step of the way, answering all of my many questions and providing me with great advice and tips, from a professional contractor perspective and from a design perspective. He is very responsive, and his team is responsive, too. They are good about explaining changes that have to be made and generally keeping me updated. I could not be more pleased!!!

Alin Maistru refinished my dinning room table. It is beautiful. He worked with me to get just the right color and finish for the table to harmonize with the decor of the room. An old, water marked, stained table that had been stored for 30+ years is now a rich, handsome table that I am proud to show off and enjoy several times every day. My next project with him will be to redo my kitchen.

We were about a month behind where I wanted my company to be, however, considering my salon is about 5,000 sq ft, I do believe that Robert did the best he could in the 2month time he told me would take them 3. He and Mr Ham were very quick. If I pointed out areas where it could’ve used a little more detail, they quickly fixed it when they came. Of course I didn’t want to have to point anything out at all, but it’s almost impossible to have everything sorted out on the first try, and I’ve had friends who said their 6month project turned out to take a whole year with a different contractor, so I think ours turned out great I’m that regard. If you’re looking for quick, go with Construction420. They’ll get the job done. Just make sure you point out exactly what you want if you don’t want it done twice. Be very clear with making a punch list in the priority you want it done. They don’t like adding anything to their list in the middle of working, so be sure you have a clear list, with which materials, item, etc if you are not going to hire a designer.

If you are a woman, you have probably been taken advantage by underhanded contractors as I have. But I chose Thumbtack bc they stand behind their customers and I expected there would be a problem. But I was completely surprised and impressed with CBR Contractors. Craig did an excellent job. He was thorough and did what he said in the time he promised. Craig is truly a professional. 2 days after he completed the job (and was already paid) he called to make sure everything was still OK. He is a keeper! I will refer him to all of my friends and clients and already have my next job lined up for him.

I contacted Ike about the work I needed done and he came over within a couple of days to take a look. He emailed me a quote that evening. We set up a start date and he told me when he expected to be finished. He actually finished 4 days early. The walls look as if nothing ever happened to them and he did more than what was expected. I highly recommend A-1 Contractors for repair work and refinishing.

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.
