The service we received was absolutely amazing. We just moved into our almost century old house and the ceiling in one of our rooms sagged. Dennis came out assessed the situation and got it fixed in record time.

The Grandview Construction crew and Jeremy were an AWESOME group! They repaired my roof, tore down and repaired my fallen in ceiling, treated for mold, put in new insulation, new drywall, textured the walls, new light fixtures, repaired my front deck railing, put in new carpet and so many other little things as well. They were all so pleasant, hard working, and really knew their craft. They were always on time and cleaned up after themselves. I am having them come back in the spring for a few more jobs. They are very reasonably priced and went out of their way to make sure to keep my costs down. I couldnt have picked a better company! These guys have real SKILLS!~ FAdams-Des Moines, Ia.

Byron came on time and within an hour he had replaced two ceiling lights with new LED fixtures, one in my walk-in closet and the other in the adjacent master bathroom. He was knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend Byron and would use him again as he told me he also does plumbing and general renovation work.

We hired Jay and his team to paint our interior house trim from a dark wood stain to white (baseboards, window frames, everything!) along with several full rooms and some exterior trim as well. After assessing 4 bids on this large project, J & S was by far the best value! The team came every day at the expected time and worked well into the evening every day. Even after we agreed upon the price and scope of the project, we noticed other little things that needed to be done and Jay was more than willing to help us with resources (if he couldn't do it) or reasonable adjustments to the bid to complete the work. We hired them as painters but they ended up doing much more! They repaired plaster work on our ceiling which we had already paid a guy to do but he couldn't match the texture. After J&S did it, you couldn't even tell there was a problem. They painted our interior exterior doors. They painted the gables high up on our roof and although Jay had to bring in a lift so they could access the room safely, he never budged on the agreed to price. We hired them to install a backsplash in our kitchen. Jay helped us find economically priced granite countertops that saved us thousands of dollars. The whole time, Jay and his brother Saed were always cheerful and very pleasant to work with. The were punctual, worked very hard, were extremely accommodating, and did it all for a very reasonable price. High quality and great value is what I got from J&S Painting. I'd definitely hire them again.

Rod is a true professional. I had Rod hang 2 flat screens, 2 security lights, a tv in kitchen under cabinet, 3 ceiling fans, ran a vent for dryer, and hung a door! The work was done in a professional and timely manner. He was always on time and never left a mess. Quality of his work is EXCELLENT!

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.
