After having Brad gives me quotes for replacing my rotting front porch, I made the decision to go with composite decking and I cannot say how happy I am with that decision. The porch looks wonderful and Brad was extremely responsive to my questions, came when he said he was coming and did a wonderful job. Alot of attention to detail and I now have a porch that I feel was custom built. He also replaced cellar doors I badly needed replaced and did a wonderful job of shoring up the sides as well. I have had a lot of compliments on the work and would certainly recommend Brad to anyone looking for a porch or deck build. Wonderful job!!

Stan's Handyman service is simply the best. I had a tricky, very heavy wood Murphy / Wall-bed with tons of parts / pistons / mechanisms that had to be fully taken apart to fit in a tiny freight elevator. (My stress level high as frame wasn't meant to be fully taken apart.) The bed then had to be installed on an older building plaster wall. Stan's work ethic is fantastic - so responsive - he worked non-stop, has a natural instinct and so wonderful to work with, I can't say enough of how thrilled I am that I had the good fortune to hire Stan for this and what surely will be many projects to come.

We used Klemp Construction to remodel our basement. We had the typical grey gloomy basement and wanted to have a livable usable space for our family. Our family's floor plans included a full bathroom, family room with fireplace, bedroom with walk in closet, office, and a small theater room with elevated floor and concesdion area. The transition is stunning! It surpassed my expectations by far. The owner Brandon is awesome. He takes the time to listen to all of our family needs and works with our schedule. The guys were all so respectful of our home and the fact that we have small children. Their rates are affordable and their work is AMAZING I HIGHLY recommend Klemp Construction to everyone. In fact my mom is currently using them to refurbish her fireplace and remodel her family room.

Please know that I highly recommend Freddy Diaz of 3B’s Contracting for residential home improvement work. I hired 3B’s, and specifically Freddy Diaz, to do a complete renovation of a two bed, two bath condo in Glenwood, IL. I live in Minnesota so I needed someone I could trust to do the job without my on-site supervision. I was given a referral to Freddy and contacted him. He met me later that day to estimate the job. A couple weeks later he provided me a complete, detailed proposal. We met one more time at the condo and I signed the contract, gave him a deposit of about half the contract and the keys and returned to Minnesota. In fact, I soon left for about a month out of the country! When I returned to Glenwood about a month later, the job was essentially complete! Again, this was a complete renovation. All the floor coverings were removed and new carpet, vinyl and ceramic tile installed. Old wallpaper was scraped off and walls patched and painted. All new kitchen appliances, sink and quartz counter tops were installed. Cabinets were repainted. All new bathroom fixtures and controls were installed. Light fixtures, electrical outlets and switches were replaced with new. Exterior windows were returned to operational condition. Nothing was left untouched. Freddy encountered some minor issues in my absence which he dealt with while keeping the project within budget and completed on schedule. I received compliments from the building management on how Freddy’s crew cleaned up the hallways and elevator each day they were on the site. In summary, I am extremely pleased with the finished apartment and most satisfied with how easy Freddy made the process. He was sensitive to budget concerns and helped make selections that kept the cost down. He proved to be extremely trustworthy and more than competent. He communicates well and was always responsive to my questions. I could not be happier with the results of the project.

This was a multi part review as there are things they did well, things I later noticed later that were not so well. 1. 5 stars on repair work was great, our front balconies were falling apart, and no one would fix it. Mostly because you need special insurance for balconies because of the elevation. I give them 5 stars on this part of the job, it wasn't easy finding someone willing to fix it. They did a good job on a difficult job. 2. 4 stars on repainting the metal balconies and stairs front and back of the condominium. 3. 2 stars on replacing the deck's, we asked for trex composite, but later I come to find out it was installed wrong, they screwed directly through the top of the boards, when they were supposed to use hidden fasteners which it was design for. Initially thought in my ignorance it looked great, but realized we spent a lot of extra money for those boards only to be installed like they were wooden planks. Also noticed they cut corners a little by not using full length boards everywhere they could of. Overall my experience was ok, but I would only hire them if I was going to be around to monitor them while they work( I was out of town, my neighbors would be at work all day). They need someone to check the quality of the work internally, I'd rather not have to do it given I don't know a lot of how things should be done the right way. In term's of time, It also took a little over a month to paint, replace the floor boards of a 3-4 floors front and back balconies, and repair the front vanity plates that were falling off. Some rain delays in May, we've had a lot in chicago this year.

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.
