We were looking for a complete tear out and redo of our bathroom and building a walk-in closet in out master bedroom. Of the 4 contractors we reviewed they were the most organized and professional. The work donewas excellent and they always met their time line for completion of tasks. Their attention to the smallest detail was amazing and it shows in the quality of their work. The employees that worked at our house were extremely courteous and professional. We could not be happier with our experience and we will definitely use them for our basement buildout this summer.

We needed a photo cell on a two story apartment building replaced. David agreed to take care of the job for us. He kept us apprised of his expected arrival time, knew what he needed, made the repair and even drove back later in the evening to make sure it was working. We were very pleased!

My experience with QHR has been excellent! The price was very reasonable (low, actually) and the work was done quickly and in a thorough, professional way. The crew showed up on time, cleaned up perfectly and repaired all areas of the building as agreed. This company is outstanding!!

We hired McDonald Construction to tear out some old concrete and pour a new concrete walkway for our building. Mike was excellent to work with and was able to accommodate a tight timeline that we had to complete the work. Mike and his guys knocked out the project quickly and did an excellent job. The improvement made a big difference for our building. I would highly recommend Mike and his team and will definitely be contacting them down the road for other projects.

Absolutely fabulous! We had a really great experience working with Master Craft & Design. They remodeled both our guest bathroom and deck in July 2018. Both projects exceeded our expectations!! Ed and his crew showed up on time every day and were very professional and friendly. They treated our house as if it were their own - taking care of the space and cleaning up at the end of every day. They were like family when they were in our home. In fact, we miss having them around! Both projects were finished on time and very close to our original quote. Ed was also very responsive and accommodated all of my requests which was important to me. The bathroom included updating the plumbing, laying new tile in the shower and floor and repairing the drywall. The bathroom is gorgeous and the attention to detail with the tilework was amazing. Josh offered his design suggestions along the way and we were so thankful for that since we had never done a remodel before. Ed and his crew took our small crappy deck and turned it into a true outdoor sanctuary! They reinforced the old frame, replaced all of the deck boards, added a ton of new square footage, and gave us a gorgeous new railing. Every time I walk now outside my heart smiles. We absolutely love our new deck and enjoy spending time out there! We couldn’t be happier with the way both projects turned out. I would highly recommend Master Craft & Design. We will definitely be using them again in the future!

I hired William to repaint almost all of the interior of my house to include the ceilings. The job took longer than expected however the end result was well worth the wait. He was very easy to work with and his pricing was very reasonable.

Ben was great prompt response to my request for a quote and his price wasn't the lowest but pretty close. His trustworthiness and ability to explain the issue in great detail was why I chose him. The installation of my new garage door looks great the guys he sent did a great job. He came and also check everything out as well.

After having Brad gives me quotes for replacing my rotting front porch, I made the decision to go with composite decking and I cannot say how happy I am with that decision. The porch looks wonderful and Brad was extremely responsive to my questions, came when he said he was coming and did a wonderful job. Alot of attention to detail and I now have a porch that I feel was custom built. He also replaced cellar doors I badly needed replaced and did a wonderful job of shoring up the sides as well. I have had a lot of compliments on the work and would certainly recommend Brad to anyone looking for a porch or deck build. Wonderful job!!

I've been looking for a while for someone to do some window work at my building. I've gone through a lot with dishonest contractors so I was a little apprehensive. But Superior choice really was Superior!! Peter came out he was very personable but yet professional. He also gave me a fantastic deal on my windows which needed to be repaired and/ or replaced. This guy is going to be my window guy from now on. Thanks Superior choice!!

I highly recommend using Hammell Homes for contractor work. Hammell Homes worked on a couple of projects in my building. Both projects were done with quality and at a fair price. I will definitely use Hammell Homes again for any housing repairs/projects in the future. Brian L.

The Jates construction team did an amazing job on this project. My wife and I needed to repair our laundry area / utility closet / hallway, which had been destroyed by a roof leak in our condo building (long story). We decided to try thumbtack, not knowing what to expect. Antonio from Jates responded immediately, and scheduled a visit the next day to provide a free estimate/quote. By the end of the day, we received a detailed Quote / job description, with a fair price. Estimated project time would be about 3-5 days. We signed up Jates, and immediately received an email. Jates was on site the very next day, completed the project in 3 days, always showed up on-time, and even gave us advice on paint colors and the doors (went with their paint suggestion - Dolphin Fin, a blueish/grey, by Behr at Home Depot, and love the look). They also helped us install a cat door for the utility room (where we are putting the litterbox)! Antonio provided updates throughout each day, and was very responsive. The entire team was very professional and friendly. Overall we are incredibly happy with the work Jates did. IMO, the most important things from any contractor are 1) transparency, 2) hard work, and 3) easy to contact. The Jates team gets an A+ on all three. We will definitely use them again, for other work in our unit (and also for condo projects) You guys rock!! P.S. I attached a before/after picture below, so people can see just how great they did!! We love the result!

We chose Network Remodeling after meeting with the owner Stan Silver because he really listened to what we wanted in a family room and garage remodel. He provided helpful suggestions and his price was very fair. When we asked for changes, he was always open to them or would provide a better idea than the one we had. We would definitely work with him again. It was the best and easiest remodel that we have had 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.
