Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

Andrei completely renovated three of our bathrooms. He did an amazing job starting with the design of each of the bathroom. He has a great eye for bringing different materials and colors together. Having Andrei with us, really sped up material and color selections as we were done with selection and purchase for all three bathrooms in about two hours. This was a huge help and not mention a relationship saver :). Now to the work - his team did an excellent job on working through each of the bathroom. Andrei communicated clearly as to what was being done along with any changes that are occurring which may not have been included in the original estimate. We truly enjoyed working with him and his team. Look forward to next time we hire Andrei for next project.

They did a great job. They completed tile work for our dining and living room. The work was complicated with a different design in our dining room that then needed to flow to the diagonal design in the remaining space. They cared about the details and getting everything just right. I would highly recommend.

I hired Kosterna Construction to do various drywall projects, including building the framing and insulating the walls. They also put in support beams where needed, built a sub floor for tile in the kitchen, installed an exterior door with frame, built frames/molding around windows, evened out a sloping floor/ ceiling. I was able to buy my own materials and paid them for the labor. They are very experienced in all new construction and remodeling. Very nice, reliable, easy to work with. I thought they did great work for a fair price and plan on hiring them for future projects! attached are some photos

I needed to have some work done in the house. Raul the general contractor from Ram Renovation was referred to us by one of our neighbors who just completed a kitchen remodel with them. Needing some work done in the house, we decided to give them a call since their kitchen came out really nice! We received previous estimates from 4 other contractors and Raul was the last to meet with us. After meeting with the other contractors we weren't looking to change the layout of the kitchen, until we met with him! Raul opened our eyes and gave us ideas that no one else bothered to show. For the second meeting, he came and showed us a 3D design of the new kitchen layout. We opened a wall and made use of every space possible. Our new kitchen remodel is amazing, it totally changed the look of the house and now everything flows well together. We really enjoyed working with Raul, he has a great team and their work speaks for itself. I love it and I think it makes the house so much more beautiful!

We had Marek demo and install a new kitchen backsplash for us. His wife, Gracie, handles scheduling/communication and does an amazing job. We were on a tight schedule for both the demo and install due to other trades working in our kitchen and Marek/Gracie did an excellent job on communicating and getting the job done right and on time.

We needed to remodel a bathroom, which had not been touched in 35 years and included a leaky toilet leading to a damaged floor. We sought bids on Home Advisor. Two independent contractors responded in addition to Sears. I met with each to describe the project’s goals, namely 1) to repair the damaged floor, 2) to ensure no further leaks from any pipes or the toilet, and 3) to remodel and update the shower, vanity, floor tile and walls. We were really impressed with Bruce Filipiak of Genesis Construction from the very first meeting. It was clear that he understood the scope of the project and had the experience to do the work, while cautioning that the extent of the exact damage was unknown until they floor could be removed. We met with Bruce at least twice more BEFORE we signed any papers – he was willing to advise us as we delved into the details of designing our new bathroom. After resolving all initial issues we signed the contract with Bruce and looked forward to getting started. We expanded the scope of the project a few times on our own and a couple times on Bruce’s advice. For example, we decided that we also wanted to replace an unrelated exterior door and Bruce accommodated that request. We also decided we wanted a built in the wall shelf in the shower, and again Bruce told us he could do it. Bruce agreed to receive the shipment from Menards at our house. Bruce advised us on the potential additional costs when necessary. He found a couple electrical wiring issues that he fixed as well Once the job was started, Genesis Construction worked clean. The downstairs floor path was taped down to protect it, plastic sheeting was put up to minimize dust spread, and the stairway carpet was covered during the workday. Once the bathroom floor was removed Bruce let us know what damage had to be repaired and preceded to fix it. Everyday we marveled at the progress. They started when they said they would and the project finished in a reasonable time. It looks beautiful! When we sat down to settle up at the end of the job, Bruce produced receipts for everything purchased to accomplish the job. We are very happy with not only the work Genesis Construction performed, but also the way he helped us through the process, and letting us know what decisions and choices we needed to make. We definitely recommend Genesis Construction and Bruce Filipiak.

Let me start by saying I'm a female living alone and I was skeptical with calling in a crew to do remodeling. I needed so much done, I had no choice but to hire help. I'm so happy I did! The owner of the company was so pleasant, professional and courteous. He was extremely helpful with making sure I understood the whole process. Immediately I could tell he was very knowledgeable in his trade. Im not sure I'm supposed to say this but he even saved me money too! The staff working with him were very professional and were punctual. They always made sure I was satisfied with the cleanup EACH TIME they came in. Now, to the work they did...everything looked better than I even thought. I expanded my master bedroom (made 2 bedrooms into 1) and also added a bathroom. Wow!!! I wish I could post pictures of my bathroom!! Separate bath walk in shower etc... My kitchen cabinets needed to be resurfaced, again came out perfect. I also had to replace all my carpet for hardwood, again stunning! My foyer needed an update, I had marble flooring put in...beautiful! One of my bathrooms needed a wall of drywall replaced, that was done as well (the owner painted it for free for me!) All I can say is I would Highly recommend Signature Construction to all my friends and family! My parents just hired him this week as well! Great company!!!

Chano and his team did a great job resealing our kitchen floor and doing some other small flooring projects (stairs, basement landing.) The work was thorough, done well, and reasonably priced. Chano was easy to work with and kept us informed about any scheduling changes or issues. I would recommend A Plus Flooring.

Patrick patched 3 areas of stucco on my kitchen ceiling. His work was good, he was through, hung plastic to keep the mess contained and cleaned up when he finished. Job went well and looks good. He also took measurements for additional work we are contemplating, but I have not heard back from him with the estimates. Work was done 3 weeks ago.

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.
