Jason was very honest and professional. He was able to fix my problem within minutes and did it free of charge. He is very knowledgeable. I would recommend Behel & Mensen contractors for roofing and other construction work.

My husband & I wanted to have our basement framed. I contacted several contractors. Jovan of Blackstone Handy Services, LLC was great. He was the first to get back to me. He was out to our home to complete an estimate and, was working on the job before we even had return calls from a few of the other contractors. He and his helper were finished with the work in less then 2 days. We will definitely be working with him again soon. He is currently working on bids for our plumbing, electricity, and drywall too.

Jason did an awesome job! He drywalled my ceiling and chimney shaft (after I had water damage from a leaking roof). He also volunteered to do a couple other odd jobs around the house for me at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy general contractor!

I also work in the trades and have worked with Joe on a number of different rehab/remodel projects over the last few years. Joe is the most diverse and skilled contractor I've ever been around. His work is efficient and his attention to quality borders on obsessive. Joe is not only a great contractor, but also an excellent Christian minister and leader. His trustworthiness, honesty and professional demeanor are refreshing in an industry typically devoid of those attributes. If I needed help with any of my own projects, Joe is the first guy I would call. -Jacob C.

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.

242 was used by us because of the consideration by Severn for his employees. This decision came about because snow was on our roof at that time the job was being quoted by selected contractors and one contractor was willing to broom the snow off and start his employees working immediately. When I discussed the same point with Severn, he said, "I would not work on a roof that had just been swept clean of snow and I will not ask my employees to do it either." I made a decision to use 242 to replace our roof at that point. The list of clients provided that already had our specific shingle installed was very helpful in making the final decision. It allowed me to see the quality of the product being used and the quality of the work performed for other clients of 242. The men doing the work were very professional. We have been happy with their work since the job was finished. Don & Kathy W Moline, IL

J Brown Construction was able to get started on the job timely and did fantastic work! They are very professional to work with. JBC made sure the work was done correctly. They removed the old siding and showed me some areas around the chimney that had water damage. It is a 40 year old house, so I was not too surprised. I was glad that they took the time to point it out and repair it and not just cover it up. We had other contractors quote to just put new siding over the old. The proper repairs to the water damaged framing never would have been done if we had gone with them! I could not be happier with our new siding and with J Brown Construction!

    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.
