I hire Enigma Electrical to provide estimated for the installation of light fixture in my rental property and Mr. Lewis was diligent and professional in his estimated, even though the job was awarded to another contractor, he provided an excellent technical input for the final selection in this bidding process.

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.

I used Thumbtack to find a contractor to demolish a small two car garage structure on my property, clean and haul away. Kingdom Restoration (owner Philip Raymond) responded to my request for a quote within minutes. Phil was extremely patient while I worked through multiple permit processes. His crew was timely, courteous and very detail oriented. Kingdom Restoration completed the tear-down and cleaned the site beyond expectation. Absolutely one of the most positive contractor experiences I have had. So thankful for their work.

We hired LoProstis to assist with a water heater issue in our home. Brian, from LoProstis, called us right away for an initial consultation over the phone, and within an hour, he arrived at our house to explain what went wrong and the course of action needed to repair the water heater. We appreciated his honesty and the accuracy of his quote in order to fix the issue, but more importantly, we appreciated the education that came along with it. Not only did Brian install a new water heater in our home; he also help us to select a reputable brand, based on his recommendation and hauled away the old water heater. He did not compromise on his professionalism to charge a higher fee (given the fact it was a weekend and one of the coldest day of the year), nor use that as an opportunity for a surcharge. It's very rear to find an honest contractor and who's willing to do the right thing, and Brian has both. He exceeded our expectations and got up and running within hours. We would definitely hire Brian again. Thank you for your hard work and excellent service, Brian.

I was extremely happy with the work AVM construction did in my house! Andrei was very nice and easy to reach. He came ON TIME, unlike the majority of handymen I have worked with. Andrei completed a backsplash for me which looks amazing and I've already gotten quite a few compliments. He was very reasonably priced and I would recommend him to a friend.

The work is OUTSTANDING! He more then exceeded our expectations. Our bathroom remodel was done ahead of schedule and it looks beautiful! A++++ Will definitely hire again for future projects.

Stayed home from work as I expected him. Calls me 30 mins to an hour before expected arrival and says he can’t come until next week. Need this to be done ASAP and now have to start all over with new contractors. Not happy primarily because I stayed home from work to accommodate his arrival.

I hired Lyndell to install a shower surround kit in my master bathroom and ended up hiring him to do so much more! He was able to repair some pesky woodpecker damage on my chimney chase. He noticed some loose cedar siding and repaired that as well. The chimney looks great and is better than the original construction. He came in under budget and was very thorough with his work. Couldn't be happier. The shower kit and door kit installation went just a smoothly. Lyndell performed a very "clean demolition, made some structural repairs and installed the shower kit with a high level of craftsmanship and care for my home. The shower surround also came in under budget and looks (and works) great! I'm very pleased with the work he performed at my house. Side note: take the time to get to know Lyndell...he is capable of more than you think. His background is amazing and his work ethic is refreshing. I'm planning on hiring Lyndell for future projects at my new home.

This was the easiest contractor I have ever had to work with. Brad demo'd my current deck and converted it to a one level deck. Brad's pricing was right in line with other quotes I received, he always showed up right on time, and the work was done exactly how I had envisioned it. He was even flexible enough to push back the original install date when I requested it at the last minute because I was going out of town. Do not bother trying someone else, this is the guy to hire. I strongly recommend him.

What a wonderful experience hiring a very skilled handyman! Ron was very responsive and even rearranged his schedule to match mine so that I could get my repairs done. He did an amazing job on 4 different items on my house. I've found my forever handyman! I'm already getting my next list of repairs together. Highly recommend

Paris and Albert were a great pair to work with. Paris had excellent communication from beginning to end, he explained everything they would do and would need to purchase for the job. They were also accommodating when I asked for additional help with picking up and hanging artwork. I researched a lot of contractors and handyman and they were by far the most reasonably priced. Would highly recommend it to others.

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.
