Would definitely use them again

Ron and his son Ronald from Remodeling Associates came to our home to repair a number of challenging plumbing issues. They were able to resolve all but one very professionally, timely, and at a reasonable price. For the one issue that needed more investigation, they were able to refer us to a professional who specialized in that specific type of plumbing problem. I would recommend Remodeling Associates for plumbing repairs and use them again should the need arise.

At first I hired Tom to move some plumbing in my kitchen remodel. He was on time, professional and very reasonably priced. He left our initial appointment just for an estimate with more work than he bargained for and each week I added more. In the end, he remodeled half of my house. From plumbing to electrical to tile to drywall, etc.. His crew is great and very respectful. My master bath looks amazing. Before he even finished my job I was referring him to family and friends. Do yourself a favor and hire him if you are reading this review. You won’t be disappointed.

I had a wonderful experience contracting with M&T to replace my water heater. The price was decent and service was exceptionally good. The heater broke down on Friday late evening and the new water heater was up and running before noon the next day. I scoped a number of plumbers but ended up with them. Ian was great to work with and so was Michael. I would recommend them any day and to my friends and neighbors. Good service | good price | 5 star service overall. They cleaned up and covered the entire route leading to the boiler room in the basement. I would definitely hire them again ..

It was a true pleasure to work with Marek and Gracie during our kitchen remodel. Marek is undeniably hardworking and courteous. He completed the kitchen remodel in 6 days and even came back another day to tweet a couple minor details. The kitchen is beautiful. His workmanship is superb. I would highly recommend him to anyone !!!

Robert Chwalek and his team are some of the most hard working bunch of people I have had the pleasure of working with. I hired them to remodel my entire house. They stained all of the wood flooring. They installed new wooden flooring in a room. They repainted two and half rooms. They repainted all trims, crown moldings, and doors. They installed new electrical fixtures (lights, ceiling fans) across the entire house. They even remodeled all the bathrooms. Everything was done beautifully and on time. Robert's commitment to his craft is unmatched. His attention to detail and his team management skills are fantastic. The pricing for the entire project was fair as well. A special shout out to his team member Stanley for all his hard work and the long hours he put in to get everything done on time. In the end, I am very happy with the outcome of Chwalek's hard work. The whole team deserves more than five stars. I look forward to hiring them for future projects.

Kevin is ripping the old & nasty carpeting in up in my; family room, hallway, bedroom. He's also ripping old & worn out laminate flooring in my kitchen & dinnette area. He's laying brand new laminate flooring in my kitchen, dinette area, family room, laundry room, bedroom, hallway & closets. My job is not fully completed just yet but so far Kevin is doing an AMAZING JOB!!! The reason I am choosing to still submit a review prior to full completion is because I absolutely have, 100% faith & confidence in Kevin's abilities, craftsmanship, professionalism, communication but most importantly, his word=that he'll complete my laminate flooring job/project in the time grand we discussed & agreed to & last but not least; just as well as he started the job.

Dan came in to handle our basement project and he was the only contractor that reached out after quoting to make sure we understood the quote. We than discussed options for stair railing options and built in shelves which came out great! Next time I need a home improvement project done I will call Dan!

We had to break our project into 2 phases because of remodeling. They refinished floors in 2 bedrooms, stairs and a hallway. They were here when they said they would be, did quality work and explained very clearly any questions I had. We will be using them for phase 2. One small nit: Some of the stain got onto our walls and baseboards so I had to repaint those. It wasn't a huge deal, but I feel like they could have taped that off so I didn't need to repaint.

I had a clog in my sink drain that I could not clear with chemicals or by snaking. In addition, I wanted to upgrade the 1960's era galvanized pipes with copper. Justin and team were great in understanding how I needed the work done quickly and that I wanted to save money were I could. They did great work for a great price. I wouldn't hesitate to use them for additional repairs/remodels in the future.

After a quarter century in our house, we retired and had to get it ready for sale. Dino and his team did an amazing remodeling job making the house look better than new. Dino was very conscience that we're on a fixed income and constantly kept costs in mind. He completed the project in record time. Dino's enthusiasm and artistry were impressive to watch. I highly recommend Dino and All American GC.

I used Affordable Interiors to put new wood floors on the first floor of my house and to remodel my kitchen. The work went smoothly and I love the end result! I really enjoyed working with Nick and all of his craftsmen as everyone was friendly, trustworthy and very efficient. Alan, the kitchen designer, was helpful when I struggled with decisions and even went to other sources to find tile and glass options for me! I know everyone talks about how long and painful remodels can be but I was very impressed with the fast pace that Nick and his team accomplished! I would definitely use them again and highly recommend them!

Just hired Turn-Key Remodeling for a basement project yesterday. Mike the owner came out and was very professional and knowledgeable. He did a drawing of the space and gave me a quote on the spot. The price was very competitive to other bids and much lower than big name remodeling companies. Once we got the quote and after him establishing himself as a true professional it was an easy decision to choose Mike over other contractors that had visited. We look forward to this project and will give more feedback as the project comes along. So far we would highly recommend Turn-Key Renodeling.

We had PR Contracting re-do a 1994 master bath in a townhome. It was covered w/mirrors on 3 walls, had a whirlpool tub and a plastic shower. It is now amazing. It was quite an undertaking but PR Contracting made it look easy. The owner, Phil, hires only the very best sub-contractors (plumbers, tile installers, etc). Truly the industries experts. We Re very happy w/our bath & others say it took like a spa!

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.
