Called Keith for new electrical work before finishing our basement. Keith"s schedule allowed him to do our work the next day! Prompt response and finished our job in a timely matter. He really takes pride in this work he does! very efficient and neat. Good cleanup job when work was finished. Love our new lightings and look forward to finish our basement. I would hire keith again for any of our electric needs in the future. I wish more workers had Keith's work ethic!

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.

So I came home from work to find my basement flooded and my sump pump not working. These guys were on the case within an hour. Ian replaced my sump pump, drained out and cleaned up the water, and also explained some other issues that I will need to address at some point in the future. Very pleased with the experience from start to finish. And thanks to Tate too!

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.

I hired Chris to install an AO Smith Power Vent 50 gallon water heater. Chris arrived at our scheduled time and assisted with wheeling the water heater to my basement. After determining and collecting the neccesary plumbing parts. Chris completed the install perfectly in a timely proffesional manner and even hauled off the old heater. Very resonable price for a job well don. I plan on using Chris for any future house repairs and remodeling services. Highly Recommended.

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.

Alumni Builders was an amazing company to work with on our home renovation. Dan was very professional and upfront with all costs, both expected and unexpected. He was thorough with our contract and allowed us to make changes along the way. He was in communication with us during the entire renovation and would let us know what the upcoming work would be as well as the name of who would be performing the work. We have a six month old at home and Dan was as accommodating as possible with his schedule & needs and understanding of my concerns (paint fumes, etc.) The quality of work was excellent and our basement has been transformed! I would absolutely recommend and rehire Alumni Builders for any future projects we might have.

Vince came out to quote the repair of a cracked cast iron pipe. He spent a considerable amount of time diagnosing the issue and prescribing an alternate repair (the pipe was inaccessible due to its location) Vince ran a new line from the second floor to the basement, eliminating the problem. He did the job in a professional manner, cleaning up completely prior to leaving. The price he quoted after his diagnostic was not only fair, but was not increased when he ran into some difficulties during the repair. I would highly recommend him for this type of work.

    I asked the Basement Buddies guy to patch a crack in my basement. We hadn't had any water in the basement for the 28 years we lived in the house, and then this little stream from this crack started getting our basement floor wet. Basement Buddies came about six or seven months ago, patched the crack, and my basement has been bone dry ever since. I would definitely call Basement Buddies if I have anymore basement/foundation problems. Richard

    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.
