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 hired Chano to paint the interior of our garage, and Chano also quoted on staining our wood deck. Chano was very professional, friendly and thorough during the quoting process and his team did excellent work. In fact, they were able to complete the job the same day Chano came out to quote. Highly recommend!

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.

The Genesis group lead by Bruce did a great job on my man cave! They helped to use the space wisely and worked through some interesting challenges. Now that it's furnished, the basement is a great "guy" hang out yet, the family can enjoy it as well. Thanks Bruce!

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.

Tom has done many small, medium sized and large projects in my home. He has redone my entire basement, 2 bathrooms, expanded closets, and painted many rooms. Essentially, he is a 'jack of all trades'. His work is neat, clean. He works efficiently and can accomplish a lot in a small amt of time. He is honest, hard-working, highly experienced, innovative, practical and pleasant to work with. He is also very competitively priced, regardless of the job. I would highly recommend him to do any project in the home!

Dino was very professional about explaining all possible options.The end result was everything and more than I was hoping for. I have already recommended this company to friends and family. Once again thank you Dino

Turion was very professional, I needed my gutters cleaned and my entire home painted and it was done within 1 week for a very reasonable price. My gutters no longer leaks thanks to him and my house won't need a paint job for at least 20 years to come. I would recommend him to anyone. Excellent job!!

I had a dark and dingy finished basement last updated 45 years ago I wanted to upgrade to a more comfortable space for a family member to move in. Stan came by and he understood what I was looking for pretty quickly. He had ideas and suggestions for my situation we ended up using which were valuable improvements. The crew did good solid work and showed up when expected and the job got done within the expected timeframe. I got a better result than I was expecting particularly in the bathroom/shower and kitchenette part of the unit. Hiring someone when you are doing a big project is a little overwhelming but these guys are straight shooters.

Bailey construction remodeled my ugly basement into a beautiful living space including a brand new bathroom with jacuzzi tub and fancy shower for a very affordable price. The workers were polite and always cleaned up after themselves. I would definitely give them a 5 star rating and have also recommended them to everyone I know, including my family who also had them do some work which they were also very happy with.

Alex came out on a holiday weekend as soon as I told him our water heater died. He’s also done a lot to stop the water in our basement by installing a gutter system over the bay window. He’s a really nice and thoughtful person.

Awesome crew!! We were very happy with the work. Matt and his team's work was beautiful. We recently opened up a wall going down into our basement, updated the stairs to match the stairs upstairs, and added a glass door. The team was very professional, always on time and cleaned up at the end of every day!! They arrived on time and completed the project on the given date. We are very happy with the work and the crew. You would never know we did the changes, it looks beautiful. It looks like it was always designed this way. We would recommend and use again!!!

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.
