We had asked several other roofing companies to help us patch our roof but all they wanted to do was sell us a new one. Jason came out and quickly took care of the problem, took pictures so I could see what was wrong, and even tacked some loose shingles for us. He also gave us a very reasonable quote to replace both the house and garage roof. We plan to use them when we are able to replace our roofs. Thank you for the peace of mind going into the winter!

I would highly recommend this company. The quote was very competitive to others I had received when looking for someone to do a tear off and re-roof my home. References were provided with the quote that made the difference for me. Most of the addresses were in driving distance, so it was easy to see their work firsthand. They are the best example of efficiency coming in and getting my roof completed in a really timely fashion. Clean up was well done. Nate was really good keeping communication throughout the whole process. I will definitely be looking to have them do further work on my home in the future.

I have used S.J. Shepherd trucking and excavation several times now, they have been the best priced option for my relatively small home projects. One of the projects consisted of removing and hauling away a large piece of concrete that had been buried in the yard by a previous homeowner, these guys got it out, loaded, and leveled the ground to the point youd never know that they removed a 2'x6'x8' piece of concrete foundation. On a separate occasion he came out to dig up a leaking water line, again far more cost effective than the other quotes, came out on time, was prepared and got the job done in far less time than i had expected. Last weekend i had him haul several loads of mulch and compost, again he did a great job, cheaper than i had paid in the past for this and with his smaller equipment he was able to get it much closer to my beds without wrecking my lawn. Cant say enough about SJ Shepherd, always on time, always prepared and always goes above an beyond even cleaning up the area before he leaves the job site. If you have residential or small farm projects this guy should be in your phone for sure.

Having been involved with Darrick and Sheree both as a Realtor and personally, I witnessed their desire to transform dreams into reality. Outstanding craftsmanship became their trademark in transforming investment properties into true works of original art. Darrick also replaced the deck on my home in a very short period of time at a fair price and it was beautiful. I've had many comments of approval for that project. If you are searching for a contractor you can trust with whatever your building/remodeling needs, I would recommend Darrick Eberle.

They did an amazing job on installing new gutters and painting the exterior of my house. They were friendly and worked fast and they did a superb job!! Everything looked amazing! They told me that it would take 2-3 days to get everything done and they were right on time and finished and even cleaned my windows after they were done, with no extra charge! If you want to have someone help you make your home look more beautiful Midwest Pro should always be your first choice!!! I know they are always going to be mine after working with them was so easy!

I came from Las Vegas to Cedar Rapids to get a house ready for sale. I didn't know any vendors in town and Ron Brooks helped with a lot of tasks. He put a drainage pump in the basement, repaired decking, concrete, fixed the garage door, fixed the gutters, cleaned up the trees and yard, and a quite a few other repairs. He continued to work on the house after I left the state, and the house was sold not long after. I was glad to find Ron Brooks and would absolutely work with him again.

    Marshall and his crew did an excellent job putting an addition onto our garage. He handle everything from pulling the permits, putting up the structure, working in coordinating getting the roofing and gutters put on , to the final inspection. He kept us posted every step of the way, by emailing and sending text messages. The best thing of all he kept us within our budget.

    The two men that came to help me move did an outstanding job. They emptied an entire garage full of furniture, boxes, and odds and ends and moved them into my apartment. They were very careful with my prize possessions, which I really appreciated. They arrived on time and were extremely personable. Caleb and Abraham did an awesome job!! I would highly recommend this company!!

    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.
