Jimmy Wilkins did a wonderful job. I am very happy. My bonus room looks beautiful. He took care of everything from putting in the insulation, sheet rock, painting, trim, floor, and electrical. Jimmy Wilkins has a fine crew of people that do the work which he watches at all times. It was a lot of work but it got done in a timely manner. He kept contact with me explaining each step. He corrected things that the original builder had done wrong 15 years ago. The job got done and I am pleased. Thank you to Scoa Remodeling.

Very conscientious, talented, and timely. Did an EXCELLENT JOB on all tasks EXCEPT woodwork on moving an existing handicap ramp. We asked that the existing materials be reused where possible and he did very well. But where new pieces had to be used, they were not accurately cut to fit & does not look professional (maybe didn't have complete tools for that part of job). He had to repair some fieldstone bricks of various shapes & sizes which had fallen down out of a retaining wall & walk path. It looked like such a daunting task to figure out placement of sizes, but we were amazed at how well he put them back. Baye also did an excellent job repairing & painting areas in the bathroom (lopsided sheetrock bathroom wall, shower ceiling repair, etc). We would definitely use him again & highly recommend him to others.

Thomas was prompt, friendly, on time and I felt very comfortable with him in my home. I believe he did a through job installing my new dishwasher. I will contact him in the future as needed. On a side note, this is the second time I have hired someone through Thumbtack. The first was for a computer repair. I have had excellent results with both transactions!

Doug provided excellent work on replacing steps on a two-tier retaining wall. Much, much better than the original work from another service about 14 years back.

    Keith constructed floor-to-ceiling / wall-to-wall cabinetry to include file cabinets, printer space and a computer keypad pull down drawer. This custom work was done for the study in a home that was totally renovated. The results were great and we've received many compliments. Most impressive was the time taken to get the perfect stain color for shelves that are in contrast to the white fronts. It's perfect and I would definitely recommend Keith's quality of work and attention to detail.

    Sweetwater is, by far, the best landscaping service I've ever used. Jacob arrived at my house when he said he would. Right on time. I thought I only wanted a few bushes around my house, but he was so knowledgeable that I decided go with a few more of his suggestions. (Not to mention the fact that his bid was the lowest I'd gotten up to that point!) I ended up with a complete landscape overhaul, and I LOVE IT! Bushes, flowers, a retaining wall, and even some potted plants. He repaired my irrigation system, too. I felt like I got more than my money's worth, since Jacob even gave me some advice as to how I should get rid of some flies that were hanging around my garden. I had to come and write a review because the excellent service made such a strong impression on me. I will definitely be calling them again!

    Jeff completed an outdoor project on our house. We are very pleased with Jeff's expertise and service. He found a very cost effective way to deal with our stucco siding issues that make the siding quite strong, energy efficient, moisture proof and woodpecker proof. While preparing to install a new paver patio, Jeff discovered a potentially dangerous situation by our foundation. If he did not discover and correct this, half our house could have fallen. Jeff also installed a beautiful stone retaining wall, windows, french doors, replaced our driveway, parking pads, walk, new landscaping, installed gutter guards and new chimney caps. All of the work was done with quality materials. The outside of our house looks quite beautiful and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Jeff. We trust that the job has been done correctly as he is very knowledgeable about home construction, repair and remodeling technique and products. We would use Jeff again for future remodeling or construction and highly recommend him to anyone who is considering those projects.

    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.  

    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.

    Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.
