I booked Apex to build a new addition on our home and to be honest I've been hesitant to work with new contractors. Their team came in and were professional and attentive to my families needs from beginning to end of our improvements. I was thoroughly impressed with their masterful work and would recommend their services to any and everyone.

Chano was great to work with, very responsive, quick to come out and complete the job. Needed drywall repair and painting in our basement done very quickly - they completed the full day project within 2 days of providing the quote and within 4 days of my posting the project. Would definitely use them again

I had a wonderful experience contracting with M&T to replace my water heater. The price was decent and service was exceptionally good. The heater broke down on Friday late evening and the new water heater was up and running before noon the next day. I scoped a number of plumbers but ended up with them. Ian was great to work with and so was Michael. I would recommend them any day and to my friends and neighbors. Good service | good price | 5 star service overall. They cleaned up and covered the entire route leading to the boiler room in the basement. I would definitely hire them again ..

Brian has been amazing to work with. He is helping us remove/rebuild the walls for our kitchen remodel. He is quick and his work looks great! He helped us with our design on some places that we may have overlooked. Very fairly priced, we will certainly use him again if we ever need more remodeling!

The 'job' encompassed four separate projects: a) Re-roofing; b) New attic insulation; c) Upgrade from 100 to 200 amp electrical; and, d) Bathroom renovation. The job was scheduled to be competed on or before 7-Dec. Joe, and his team, worked on two projects simultaneously throughout the job period. The workmanship was good to excellent. Projects like these on older homes always run into unforeseen problems. Joe's team handled each "interesting situation" with grace and good humor without burying me in Change Orders. All projects were completed ahead of schedule with Joe - himself - being the toughest critic of the job. This left me with nothing to point out or complain about!! I plan on using Fox Restoration for other work in the spring.

Claudio and his team handled very well our lack of clarity on portions of our project. The project turned out well and so did the additions. The work quality was good and everyone at our house seems happy the outcome. BTW - This project was for remodeling two bathrooms in a 40 year old house.

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.

Dan came in to handle our basement project and he was the only contractor that reached out after quoting to make sure we understood the quote. We than discussed options for stair railing options and built in shelves which came out great! Next time I need a home improvement project done I will call Dan!

We initially contracted with Tom to remodel two bathrooms and install tile floor throughout our downstairs family room, hall and son's downstairs bedroom. Tom was doing such a great job so we began to trust his work the more we saw getting done. We then also asked him to remove wood paneling, install drywall, paint our entire lower level, add can lighting and install solid core doors throughout our house. We are thrilled with the finished product. He works faster alone then other contractors do with entire crews! Great work at a reasonable price.

We had to break our project into 2 phases because of remodeling. They refinished floors in 2 bedrooms, stairs and a hallway. They were here when they said they would be, did quality work and explained very clearly any questions I had. We will be using them for phase 2. One small nit: Some of the stain got onto our walls and baseboards so I had to repaint those. It wasn't a huge deal, but I feel like they could have taped that off so I didn't need to repaint.

We chose Network Remodeling after meeting with the owner Stan Silver because he really listened to what we wanted in a family room and garage remodel. He provided helpful suggestions and his price was very fair. When we asked for changes, he was always open to them or would provide a better idea than the one we had. We would definitely work with him again. It was the best and easiest remodel that we have had done.

We first talked to John Nevin in August 2014. He was the first responder to my inquiries, and proved himself to be professional and prepared from the start. We had a very large renovation to do on a 1951 home; though a job of this size will always reveal unexpected issues, John was there for us at every step with support, professionalism, and a phenomenal work ethic. We just received our keys last night, and we could not be more ecstatic with the quality of the end results as well as the ease of working with John and his team. We have already recommended him to everyone we know, and will continue to do so. NCH comes highly recommended!

I am sure there is a lot of companies that can do great work, for me that wasn’t enough, doing home renovation projects can be stressful, so I was looking for a company that not only does a great job but also made the process as easy and stress-free as possible, I called about 10 companies and Nick immediately stood out from the competition with he’s very responsive level of communication and attentiveness, he made me feel like i was he’s only customer, when ever I had a question or nead it something NICK was there. When I received the estimate for the project, Nick was the most competitive offer that along with experience and many raving reviews I decided to hire Nick, let me tell you NICK and his crew did a great job and finish in time, don’t bother looking for anybody else, I am sure NICK and his crew will exceed any level of expectation, Nick at Pro Point Constrction is the way to go.

I hired Angela from Elegance by Design as my interior designer and it was a great decision. Angela is not only a designer but can be your general contractor or you can use your own contractor and hire her as a designer and she can also project manage your contractor so you aren’t stuck dealing with every detail. She’s very thorough and passionate about design. As a homeowner you’re emotionally tied to certain things or how you think things should be, however she take a holistic design approach and looks at the space you want to design and gives you ideas of what things can look like based on your style and what would appeal to others if you were to ever sell in the future. She’s detailed oriented and a perfectionist. She gave me an idea to cut a piece of drywall in the bathroom that added minimal cost but added much more return to the value of my bathroom having a fireplace which you usually don’t see in homes which I’ll get back if I sell this home. She also helps you pick up material and has saved me money and chosen the right material like lights and tile which I was going to pay a lot more for. Never using a designer I didn’t know what to expect and now having one I know that any remodeling I will do I will use a designer more specifically Angela from Elegance by Design.

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.  

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.

Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.
