Called Keith for new electrical work before finishing our basement. Keith"s schedule allowed him to do our work the next day! Prompt response and finished our job in a timely matter. He really takes pride in this work he does! very efficient and neat. Good cleanup job when work was finished. Love our new lightings and look forward to finish our basement. I would hire keith again for any of our electric needs in the future. I wish more workers had Keith's work ethic!

We hired Chano to paint the interior of our garage, and Chano also quoted on staining our wood deck. Chano was very professional, friendly and thorough during the quoting process and his team did excellent work. In fact, they were able to complete the job the same day Chano came out to quote. Highly recommend!

We hired Tom to finish our basement. It’s been a project on our to do list since we bought the house couple years ago. We met with a number of people/companies to get ideas and quotes. With the size of the project (2000 sq ft), we wanted to make sure we give it to the right company, having burnt by many past experiences dealing with contractors. When we met Tom, we knew right away he was the right guy. Tom completed the basement yesterday, and we couldn’t have been more satisfied. The basement looks great, and the attention to quality and perfection is astounding. Tom and his men are the most reliable people I have worked with. Showed up at 8am 6 days of the week for 30 days. Tom puts his heart into the job and we developed a very personal relationship with him. Highly recommend Tom for any project. He also engineered a solution for another structural problem that we had in the house during the time he was working the basement. Can’t say enough good things about him.

They were EXTREMELY responsive. We had a broken pipe in the basement and even though it wasn’t an emergency, they responded right away. From the time I reached out to them to the the pipe being replaced was less than 4 hours! Great work, very professional and at a reasonable rate.

Marek laid tile, placed drywall, and placed a vanity where I asked. I had a small issue with the placement of an outlet, but everything went very well. I would hire him again.

I needed a new closet put in where there was simply a recessed in the wall with shelves. Claudio was timely and professional in completing the job. He kept me updated throughout the process of the job, which only took a couple of hours. I look forward to hiring him again!

Bruce and his crew were great to work with during our basement remodel. We shared our vision and he helped us to make it happen within our budget. He was upfront and honest about the costs that were incurred along the way and gave us lots of options/directions to go at different price points so we could make an informed decision. During the construction process, the crew worked diligently to get the work done. They sent daily updates with photos about what was accomplished each day and were always available to answer questions. Whenever we would call, text, or email, we heard back in a reasonable amount of time with the details we needed. At one point, we shared a concern about something and Bruce made sure that it was remedied to our liking without hesitation. It was so evident that he takes great pride in his work and looks to ensure his customers are 100% satisfied. Since moving to the area we have worked with several local "handymen" and Genesis may have just earned the title of our new "go to guy!" Thank you!!!

Mike was very professional and stuck to his commitment. His crew are hard works and I am amazed at what they got done.... lowering a basement floor 21 inches. There were some conflicts in scheduling the pouring of the concrete but in the end he stayed true to his commitment. I would definitely recommend him in the future.

Dan understood our vision for our basement remodel, had good ideas and was very friendly. He kept us highly informed of project timeline and when workers would arrive each day, and came to the worksite often to check on work quality. Everything went smoothly and we are very satisfied with the end result.

I had water damage to a basement bedroom. Even though the job was relatively small, Ray accepted it regardless. I was on an extremely tight time frame and Ray and his team pulled through, even working on a Sunday evening. Our floor and trim look beautiful and I'm so happy to have a beautiful bedroom for my mom again. They are coming back in a couple weeks to replace some basement windows. Ray and his team did a great job, professional, and friendly. Highly recommend! Thanks Ray for delivering as promised!!

I needed the outdated original hardwood floors in my new home stained and refinished fairly quickly before I moved in. Rafal was very prompt and courteous with coming out for an estimate and very reasonably priced. It was a no brainer to hire him. He and his wife work together and were very nice and asked all the right questions to insure the process went smooth and I got what I wanted. I will be hiring him for other work in the future.

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.
