Dustin was hired to move furniture around in our home - basement to living room, and vice versa. He was prompt, fair, communicative, exactly everything you would want when hire help. I have no reservations at all referring him and will be requesting his services in a few months for a new deck.

great experience. they were able to get my basement done quickly and with excellent craftsmanship. Roy's team was very friendly and assisted in helping figure out ways to make a broken pull-out trash into a cabinet with unnoticeable hole fills. all work was completed in the time frame originally gave. basement looks great & the other odd end jobs are working nicely!

I hired him for a tile job in a small basement bathroom. He and his team ripped out the old floor (ugly linoleum, I think) and had it all cleaned out within an hour. They came back the next day to lay the tile, then the third day to grout, and lastly a few days later to complete the finishing touches. Overall I was impressed. They took all of the trash with them once done which saved me time from having to do that, and they always checked with me during the job to make sure I liked what they had done. The tile looks beautiful and I'm so glad I went with my decision on this project. I will be hiring again for another tile job with them.

Bob was the best investment I've made for my home! I hired him to finish a bathroom in my basement laundry room. He offered me a solution four other contractors never suggested and ended up helping me save a lot of money while expanding the amount of room! He offered great suggestions and always kept me updated on progress. Incredibly professional and respectful of my home by always cleaning up the worksite. Oh, and he offers wonderful advice on dog training too! All around the best contractor I've worked with in the Omaha area and the first name on my list for all future progress. Call him now, you won't regret it!

Lockhart's mowed my lawn like they said they would and gave me peace of mind while I was deployed. I came home to a yard that was taken care of properly and I'm grateful for finding this company. Will use again!

We had a great experience in using Crusader Construction Company! Benjamin Jones is very knowledgeable in many trade areas. We used him to create a now beautiful bathroom! He installed a new sink, counter top, sconce lighting (his idea, which I LOVE) and new wiring throughout for safety switches, exhaust fan and overhead light in my shower! He also removed an awkward inside door/wall. The room looks so much larger! We were so pleased with his professionalism and quick responses that we hired him AGAIN to help with finishing our basement (picture to follow.) He's strong too, to carry all that drywall! haha It's nice to finally find a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy that we can TRUST. We'll be calling again for our next project for sure!

Bryan Downs from Hamilton Downs was very professional and their work was exceptional, fast, and courteous. The crew was efficient and did a great job keeping everything clean and cleaned up well after the job was completed. I would definitely recommend Hamilton for roof replacement. Their pricing is very competitive and fair.

We had hail damage on our roof & gutters. Mark helped us handle our insurance company making our end stress free. While his crew did a fantastic job replacing the roof & gutters. They were timely & clean. I've recommended United Services to my family which they have taken care of my mom & brothers homes over the years. Will use them for my next project!

I had JWT Construction and Remodel redo the bathroom so I could sell my house. They were very efficient and are willing to listen to the different ideas you have. Also previously they did work on my basement and they were able to get it done in the time allowed.

I loved working with Todd. And if I ever build again, he would be my go to. This is the second home my husband and I have built (one out of state and now the one we live in). And working with him was perhaps one of my very favorite experiences. I have very particular tastes (both aesthetic and functional), have always been very detail oriented, and I am a very hands on client (probably a bit annoying for him and Gloria). He was always accommodating, very involved, and always able to put things back into perspective (to the functional reason). The contractors that he employs have been top notch; always going above and beyond and informing me what they were doing if I stopped by (which I did do daily). I actually got to know most of his contractors and when you realize that they love what they are building, I think it actually shows in their craftsmanship. As for Todd, his attention to perfection just suited my own anal retentiveness. He absolutely puts himself into building this home and I could talk him up forever. I loved working with Gloria. She gives great advice and makes sure that things are communicated. She's also very detail oriented and will keep things on track. We have been in our home for a year. We have had a handful of things that needed repair after a year that involved Todd, but all minor (lighting, driveway cracks due to foundation settling, grout that has some cracks). Probably one major thing that could not have been predicted and really no one's fault was handled immediately. I absolutely LOVE my home. I loved building it. I have maybe two things that I would change (light switch placement on one light and maybe having added the potential frame-out of a fireplace in the semi-unfinished basement). Todd and Gloria both received hugs when we were done. Hands down, when we complete the basement, I plan to have Todd and his contractors back out. He always seemed to see my vision and listened to me when I was very specific in what I had in my head. And when the materials weren't available (or "not in style for Omaha," as one supplier had the gall to tell me), Gloria made sure to hunt down another option that fit what I was looking for. There's something to be said about the Menards. They are a pretty amazing team. It's one thing to listen, one thing to envision, and the other thing to build. So they are a pretty complete package. And let me add, that when I went through a model and expressed that it was and wasn't entirely what I was looking for, I knew that Todd and I would get along when he asked, "Well what would you want to change?" and he took no offense to it. In fact, it solidified our business relationship when he took me room by room and when I expressed something about a nook not being what I would want, he immediately offered other options... It resulted in a giant closet. When we weren't able to install two shower heads, his suggestion were more body sprayers... BEST idea ever. And when I saw something during building that I thought wasn't going to turn out exactly how I envisioned it, there was always the work towards getting it to the best of the availability. One last thing, my husband and I have expressed that we love our home so much that going on fancy vacations won't ever beat being at our own home, we enjoy it so. :)

Brad and Billie from Steady Hands Painting are wonderful to work with. They are amazingly reliable, talented, creative and collaborative. They painted the exterior of my home and redid my basement family room and bathroom. Taking the time to add extra touches and to make sure every aspect of the project is the best it can be is their signature. They are good communicators which makes the projects fun during the planning phases and when in process. I am looking forward to my next project with Steady Hands Painting! MaryLee Brock

I can't say enough great things about Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc, but hopefully the following will help you decided on Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc for any of your electrical needs. When I first sent thumbtack an inquire about an electrician needed for my jobs, Donnie reached out and was ready to tackle my jobs and any questions I had for the upcoming project. Unlike the other companies I was talking with, Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc offered a free quote to come and look at what work needed to be done and how much it would cost. From the start of the Thumbtack message right up to the end of the job, Donnie was a true professional! He always knew the answers to the questions that I had from myself, and also the many more questions my mom had as well. Donnie installed three electrical outlets, a light in the basement, LED lights in the kitchen, and also installed a fan in our kitchen for us. When the fan went up and was installed, it ran perfectly with no wobble, unlike other fans I've seen install that has the death shake to it. The price for all this work to include labor was very reasonable and I would definitely recommend Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc for any electrical work needed. I am so incredibly happy for the work Donnie did for my family, and in the future if I ever need more electrical work done.....Donnie will be the first person I am going to contact. Thank you again Donnie for being a true professional and getting the job done right the first time!

Very personable and professional work. They answered any and all questions I had for what I needed done, as well as a free quote for the work being done. While doing the work they are very punctual and fast but also do the job correctly. They completely finished our basement including a bedroom, bathroom, and living space and we couldn’t be happier with the results. They even finished ahead of schedule and we will call them again for any other projects we need done.

    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.
