We needed to have baseboards installed and painted throughout my entire basement before I had my carpet installed. Tom and Jose did a great job. After my initial request on Thumbtack Tom responded right away and came out to give me an estimate. Price was very reasonable and they were prompt in doing the work. I expect to hire them in the future for additional products. Would recommend to others as well.

I hired Rising Construction to fix some gas pipes that were leaking in my basement. I expressed the need to get them repaired asap. They showed up earlier than expected. They were very reasonable on the price. I added on some additional jobs and they took care of them as well. You can tell they are good people. I highly recommend Edwin and Alvin.

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.

We were looking for a complete tear out and redo of our bathroom and building a walk-in closet in out master bedroom. Of the 4 contractors we reviewed they were the most organized and professional. The work donewas excellent and they always met their time line for completion of tasks. Their attention to the smallest detail was amazing and it shows in the quality of their work. The employees that worked at our house were extremely courteous and professional. We could not be happier with our experience and we will definitely use them for our basement buildout this summer.

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 had Claudio complete various projects on separate occasions, including hanging 2 new light fixtures, design & install an enclosure around my stove/microwave exhaust, drywall ceiling repair from water damage, repair one broken kitchen cabinet, install doors in basement to cover furnace & hot water heater, paint & install quarter round in living, dining, hallway and bedroom. He did a great job. He even saw my leftover paint and did touch-up paint for me. These were all small projects I had been putting off and now the house looks great. I would hire him again. Thanks Claudio!

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.

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!!

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.

I have been looking for a company to help with the remodeling in my basement. Im glad I found B & B Construction. I called Mr. Wilson out for a quote and it was the most affordable that I came across. They got started the next day. The started by taking up the tile and taking down the damaged drywall. They were very professional and respected my time. They showed up when they said they would and got a substantial amount of work done in only a few hours. After they were done with the drywall they neatly painted the whole basement. I requested the baseboards to be painted blue and the walls white. I was very satisfied with the overall cleanliness and quality of the job! Ill be contacting B & B again for my next home improvement projection the spring as well as recommending them to friends! Thank you all!

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.
