We used Painting and Then Some in May 2018 to paint our two story house and garage, and to power wash our deck. The results were great - the house looked sharp, edges and borders were neat, and surrounding area had been cleaned (he had to scrape off old paint first). The price was very competitive, and the estimate of the amount of paint we would need to buy was spot on. We highly recommend Painting and Then Some.

Ben and his team renovated my bathroom. They tore out the old tile, repaired the water damage to the wall behind the only leaky tile, retiled everything and replaced all the fixtures. Ben and his team were very nice to work with and considerate and cleanly. The new bathroom looks and feels great. Would definitely consider Fryer's Home Improvement for our next project.

We had Joe and his crew complete our job including siding, a new door opening, new windows, new trim, and replacement of damaged studs. Joe gave us an estimate for the job and was within $500. on the final bill. He communicated well with us throughout the process and if anything came up he promptly informed us and asked for our input. Joe was on the job site EVERY day they worked and managed his workers in a professional manner. Joe's crew was outstanding. Professional and very respectful! They were on time to the job site and worked full days. We were informed anytime there was a schedule change - which was not often. They cleaned up our location every night before they left. They were respectful of the neighbors (no loud music or cursing). All were very trustworthy! The work done was outstanding. Repairs done were quality and cost effective. We will be using Joe again to build columns inside our home and to assist us with building out the patio and sidewalk. He and his crew listened to our ideas, were willing to discuss them and then follow-through on decisions made. We highly recommend Joe and his crew!! Sincerely, Charlie and Tammy

Roger did everything he promised and did not rush through the project. Door looks great and he knew what he was doing. Roger also didn't mind me watching him do his work when I was in the garage. Very professional.

Ben did a great job! We were out of town and he coordinated the entire project over the phone, and even sent pictures when he was done. He finished everything within the day and we even rehired him to paint our garage and do an exterior power wash on a home that we're getting ready to sell.

    Brian Caldwell took over large renovations needed for my house in Decatur. There was a lot of work needed in a short amount of time. He did an amazing job. He took care of every aspect of the project that included siding, roof work, garage demolition, foundation work and much more. He also did a good job of "thinking-out-of-the-box" on ways to save me money. He also worked well with city inspectors, permits, my property manager, and my other workers. And he was very flexible and easy to work with regarding payments. All-in-all just a great job. Was nice knowing I had someone I could count on in a difficult renovation project within a short timeline.

          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.  

          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.

          Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.
