Jack did an amazing job hanging curtain rods in my apartment. It's an old building and the walls are thick but Jack brought the right tools to get the job done quickly and accurately.

Chano and his team installed new laminate floors throughout our home, painted all our trim and installed new doors. He even fixed an odd door frame in our master bath, which icluded building out the wall a bit and installing new frame. It was all quite a process and took us out of the home for a good two weeks or so, but in all fairness, it was a big job. The workmanship and attention to detail was top notch, and if there was ever anything I didn't quite like or wanted fixed, there were no questions or pushback. Chano and his team really want their customers to be satisfied with the end results, and we are very much!! We even ended up having to rebuild the stairs because carpeting had really damaged the wood, and although it cost us a bit more, the results were great! He really worked with us on many levels, including price and he always offered fair opinions on construction and where to spend money or where we could save. A lot of contractors run pretty shady and you never know who you can trust, so I'm very happy we found A Plus Decorating, because we never had to worry. I highly recommend Chano and his team and will definitely use them in the future!

Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

There is something special about Andrei. He is nothing like the contractors I was used to working with. From the first time we met during his estimate, he immediately stood out as professional yet very approachable, honest and detail oriented. No contractor has ever come to an estimate wearing a suit, breaking down the big project to individual tasks on the spot, and pricing each task individually as we spoke. And his price was truly reasonable. Andrei and hist partner Andrei had a rather big task on their hands - gut-rehab my master and second bathroom, and tile my foyer. I am a picky person, and I wasn't sure if I could find somebody to go along with my anal nature and constantly changing mind. But Andrei listened to all my needs and worked with me like a friend throughout the whole project. I wanted a modern curb-less linear shower drain for my master bath. Some contractors that came before Andrei have never even heard of that. He instructed my plumber on where to relocate the drain, and the rest was all Andrei. I wanted a double vanity instead of the single vanity and Andrei again worked with my plumber on relocating the toilet so we have space for a double vanity. The Andreis drove the whole project from start to finish, unlike many contractors which will leave you the last 10% for you to figure out. We had a few bumps along the road, such as having to wait on some tiles for a week, but the Andreis were very accommodating to our situation and they worked around our schedule. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I hope you get the picture. No contractor is perfect, but Andrei comes really close to it. Best of luck to you my friend!

We couldn't be happier with Jeremy and J&S Exterior! He came out and advised us about what he could do with our siding both repairs with painting or siding. Then left it up to us which way to go with more information than we had been given by 4 other contractors. We chose the siding and it is beautiful and done with professionalism and on time. Thanks 😊

We took on a rather large project in our new home, which included a full kitchen remodel, not done by MasterCraft - and what I can say is that Eddie and his team were by FAR the best contractors we worked with during this process. He was extremely helpful and communicative - any time I needed something, he responded quickly and entirely. Outside of that - his pricing was extremely fair and he did a top-notch, job. Every detail was gone over to ensure that it met both my and his standards. There was a complete transformation made to our home in a timely fashion, and Eddie was also up front with what was going on. I never felt as though we were being slighted or that the work done did not match our expectations. In fact, everything exceeded the expectations and we even enlisted Eddie to do a few other things. We wish we had even MORE in our home for him and his team to do because they did such a fantastic job.

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.

Eddy came to my house to fix a water damaged basement. I had to fix a wall and rip off around 300sqft of carpet and lay vinyl tiles I also needed to install the trims and install a closet door. Eddy did a FANTASTIC Job so patient and professional with all my requests. On the last day of job I had to leave for a party and he accomodated his schedule to leave and come back the next day to finish the work. It was really appreciated. Even the quality of work is no less then a profesional company in the market. YOu can see if for yourself in the before and after pics. I am just glad that I now have a great handyman. I am also going to employ him for some plumbing (sump pump insall) and landscaping (putting up a fence) work. He does that too and I would assume with the same level of devotion and quality with which he did my basement. In short, he is a ONE MAN ARMY in the truest sense.

Luke finished the job in almost exactly his estimated time. He worked quickly, cutting out a damaged section of drywall and replacing it. He applied three full coats of mud, drying it between coats with a hair dryer. He feathered it out so that, were it painted, it would be an invisible patch. I'm very pleased with a job well-done. I'm already considering another job for him!

I've been looking for a while for someone to do some window work at my building. I've gone through a lot with dishonest contractors so I was a little apprehensive. But Superior choice really was Superior!! Peter came out he was very personable but yet professional. He also gave me a fantastic deal on my windows which needed to be repaired and/ or replaced. This guy is going to be my window guy from now on. Thanks Superior choice!!

The Jates construction team did an amazing job on this project. My wife and I needed to repair our laundry area / utility closet / hallway, which had been destroyed by a roof leak in our condo building (long story). We decided to try thumbtack, not knowing what to expect. Antonio from Jates responded immediately, and scheduled a visit the next day to provide a free estimate/quote. By the end of the day, we received a detailed Quote / job description, with a fair price. Estimated project time would be about 3-5 days. We signed up Jates, and immediately received an email. Jates was on site the very next day, completed the project in 3 days, always showed up on-time, and even gave us advice on paint colors and the doors (went with their paint suggestion - Dolphin Fin, a blueish/grey, by Behr at Home Depot, and love the look). They also helped us install a cat door for the utility room (where we are putting the litterbox)! Antonio provided updates throughout each day, and was very responsive. The entire team was very professional and friendly. Overall we are incredibly happy with the work Jates did. IMO, the most important things from any contractor are 1) transparency, 2) hard work, and 3) easy to contact. The Jates team gets an A+ on all three. We will definitely use them again, for other work in our unit (and also for condo projects) You guys rock!! P.S. I attached a before/after picture below, so people can see just how great they did!! We love the result!

After buying my home I ended up with water damage in my basement, Joe was recommended to me by a neighbor. He came in and assessed the damage and told me what was wrong and gave me a quote to do the work. Joe had to remove master bath shower and remove all the drywall in the ceiling of my basement. He was great and kept my house clean and dust free everyday he worked on my shower. He was patient with me as chose tile for the wall and floor of the shower. Joe did an excellent job installing the tile, grout and drywall. He even painted my bathroom and the ceiling in the basement, making sure everything was clean when he was finished! I love my new shower!

This was our first experience using a general contractor and we had an excellent experience. Emanuel and his crew did a fantastic job in all aspects of the project. They completed the job ahead of the initial estimate even after running into a couple of unanticipated problems along the way. We were given a plan for the project and informed daily of the next day's activities and of any changes to the upcoming days' activities. Several adds and changes to the work by us, were taken in stride and worked out equitably. Emanuel and his crews' attention to detail and pride in workmanship were evident throughout the project. His subcontractors were also very good and easy to work with. While we did enjoy getting our house back, we did miss our daily interaction with Emanuel and his crew. They are truly good people.

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.
