I followed after weather was warm enough to get into the roof. Brandon showed up on time and fixed the issue and I think he did a good job. He is a nice guy to work with. Planning to hire him for some more handyman work at my house.

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.

We have a 120 year old Historic Blue Island, Illinois home with big "L" shaped porch that unfortunately was rotting away. We called all kinds on contractors to look at the porch and offer an estimate--they came and we never heard back. I guess the job was too complicated. It was complicated. We wanted to keep the original historic look and yet do the job with a lasting quality craftsmanship. We turned to Thumbtack and found Gene Steele, from G.A. STEELE CONSTRUCTION. Gene Steele seemed to recognize immediately the needs and values we wanted to work with. We were pressing against the winter weather, starting the job the last week of October--that ended up being our biggest obstacle, but many other changes had to be made as we encountered the work. Concrete, cement footing for the porches piers, rebuilding the piers, and the entire rebuilding of the under the porch supports. Gene worked with it all. When the Polar Vortex hit in December it was obvious the work would have to hold off, yet he secured a site to pre-stain the decking so when a day opened up it was ready. I found Gene incredibly knowledgeable and flexible. He has promised to come back out in the Spring to check on a few items and stain the deck one last finish coat. The entire cost was over the original bid, but there was good reason and was not a surprise to us since he kept us in the loop about the problems. We feel so much more secure now that our porch is restored, crafted, and simply looking good.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Ed and Lakeview Environmental & Construction Group. Conveniently for me, Ed lives right down the street and he was able to come down the street to asses or situation and give me a very fair quote the same day we spoke on the phone. He then gave me the option to buy the parts online and he would pick them up and the local Home Depot or I could just go get them and he would install them. He was able to schedule to come out the day after he gave me a quote and finished the job within a couple hours. I'm a real estate agent in Chicago, so I work with a lot of different contractors getting jobs down for my clients. Sometimes I use thumbtack to find them someone in a pinch. That being said, the search is over! I will forever use Ed and Lakeview Environmental & Construction Group for all my contractor needs!

Rob completely rehabbed an old shed of ours. Replaced wood, new roof, brand new doors and everything repainted with custom paint and trim work. It turned out positively gorgeous. He was able to match the paint up to our house perfectly and the shed now looks like a beautiful extension of our home.

We needed our deck pressure washed, sanded, and stained. I received several quotes from numerous companies and contractors; most of them were overpriced and some just simply ridiculous. When Tom came over to assess the work that would need to be done he offered a value added quote. The price was fair for the work that he offered. He doesn't spray the stain on in fact he hand brushed most of the deck, and with two coats. You don't see that too often nowadays. I won't go into much detail about it or give it all away but I can say he is someone who is passionate about his work and he takes the time and preparation needed to make sure the work is done right and looks good. He is easy to reach and always follows up in regards to communication. You can call him, text him, email him, and if he can't find you he will make sure you get his message. In addition, Tom has a good sense of humor which we appreciated as it made the whole process of hiring a stranger a bit more comforting. He was prompt to provide a copy of his insurance and references. The project took longer than expected however it wasn't his fault the weather has been fairly wetter and colder this summer than the average. I also came home one evening to find that he fixed some other minor things around the backyard. Prior to Tom, our deck looked like it was 30 years old and had no maintenance done to it since it was erected. Now our deck looks like it came out of a Pinterest picture. Everyone who has came over to see it was amazed at the transformation. Great job Tom! We will be sure to keep you in the loop as we quote out other jobs for our home!

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.
