I needed some outlets installed in my unfinished basement. Jerry was able to come out the next day to complete the install and provide excellent advise for care and maintenance. He also fixed a problem with the circuit breaker while he was here. Quick and professional. Will hire again for any handyman needs.

The Innovative Team helped me out when I needed it the most. My Finished Basement flooded from a failed sump pump. Innovative came out that day and immediately started drying the basement out so that everything was not a complete loss. Their experience & their inventory of equipment allowed them to develop a Cost Competitive Plan to best suit me. THEY SAVED MY BASEMENT!! Thank you Innovative Cleaning & Restoration. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!

We were looking for a professional contractor who could build/remodel bathroom in my basement. Troy was very helpful in explaining the process and cost efficient. He totally built the bathroom from the rough ins to the finish product. He was respectful, honest, on time, hardworking and went out of his way to make sure we were totally satisfied with the overall projects. We have referred him to several people who need/needed home improvements done. There are pictures of the project on both of his websites. We will always use him for any of our home improvements or repairs in the future.

My project involved the installation of about 220 feet of pre-finished 6 inch baseboard in my refinished basement. Previous flood damage caused the finished basement to become unfinished. After a few years of piecemeal refinishing, the baseboard was the last step for completion of the basement restoration. Brian responded with interest to quote the job and came out to my house to review the site. Subsequently, he provided a quote that was fair and reasonable. When Brian actually started the job, he quickly determined that where the basement floor had previously been carpeted and now was covered with vinyl, the baseboard height was too short to cover wall remnants left by the previous baseboard. His solution was to raise the baseboard by approximately 3/8 inch and then obtain and install a 1/4 round shoe. Brian took the time to go procure the 1/4 round, prime it and paint it, and then install it. Essentially, doubling the work. We agree to adjust his quote accordingly and, again, his quote adjustment was fair and reasonable. His finished work was outstanding and of professional quality. I will keep his name and phone number in my contact list for any future work. Brian is pleasant, personable, and easy to work with, and his work is of the highest caliber. He's good at finished carpentry. If you get a quote from Brian, you can't go wrong giving him serious consideration to perform your work.

Tim and his crew are excellent craftsman and have a variety of Home Renovation skills. I had a basement remodel that I had started and needed them to drywall, mud, tape and paint. It looks awesome. Seeing how well they did that, I asked Tim to tile the bathroom I was building (shower and floor). I couldn't be happier. I look to use them on any home project that they wish to do.

I had a remodeling project to completely refinish my kitchen, 2 bathrooms and basement. B&C Contracting was 1 of 5 quotes that I received. They were extremely professional being that they didn't just simply give me a random estimate but they came and looked at everything I was interested in remodeling. Overall, they responded with an estimate the same day and I decided to hire them. They were able to take out what was there prior, take out a few walls, add new lighting areas in my ceiling, put in cabinets, countertops and appliances, put up drywall, re pour concrete, put in my flooring, paint and do general carpentry. They also installed a few new windows and doors. The job was finished in a couple weeks and the update looks perfect. We will eventually add an additional garage and rehire B&C Contracting Specialist to do this project as well.

Rick was hired to finish out our basement and did a great job. Everyone was very courteous, responsive to our questions and concerns, and performed quality work. Rick was helpful in finding options to fit within our budget. They finished on time, on budget, and cleaned up afterwards. The final project turned out great and I would recommend Rick and his team to others.

Despite our efforts to find a new home that was, "move in ready" the competitive home market and limited number of properties, lead us to consider buying a fixer upper and then hiring a contractor to make it "move in ready." I am an extremely anxious person and buying a new home is a very stressful situation on its own. Finding a contractor on top of everything else, was something that we had a lot of concerns about. From the start, Trinity Contracting (Tad), was very accommodating and provided us with a free estimate. During our first meeting it was apparent that he understood what we were trying to do and already had made some great recommendations. Once we decided to work with Trinity, things moved quickly and demo seemed to fly by. The scope of work was pretty large with 2 full bathroom demos, 1 main wall demo, 2 half wall demos, and complete demo of all the flooring except the bedrooms. Tad provided an aggressive timeline of 6-8 weeks for project completion and many others told me to expect double the time a contractor states. Not the case with Tad, work was almost completely done by week 8 with the exception of some minor finishing touches and we were able to move into the home on schedule. Tad was very involved during the process and took us shopping to pick out tile, wood flooring, bathroom fixture, etc. He was able to help us tremendously with pricing and also did a great job of mediating between my wife and I when we were split on a decision. Tad was also helpful about keeping our budget in mind and made sure that we did not go over on anything unless we wanted to. If there was a decision to be made which would cost more, Tad was there to discuss what things could wait and which would make more sense to do now. Tad and his wife, Shell, were very flexible at every step in the process and went out of their way to make things as easy as possible when we needed to meet. The project come out beautifully and Tad really stepped up in the end to make sure we had everything that was agreed upon despite a error made by a supplier. This really made me confident in Trinity, Tad, and his wife Shell as business and I look forward to working with them if we are lucky enough to finish our kitchen and/or basement in the future. I have already referred a couple of others to Trinity who were looking for contractors and would continue to do so if asked for a reference.

My husband and I hired Steve to paint our bedroom, basement, atrium, bookcase, living room and foyer top to bottom. He was priced very competitively. During the process he was responsive and always made sure we were updated, and most importantly, pleased with the progress. We will be contacting him again for future work on the rest of the bedrooms in our home.

Jesse came and did an amazing job fixing an old contractors awful job in our basement. He created two new corners on our wall, fixed another corner, refinished a damaged wall, taped and mudded a different portion of wall, and matched texture on our ceiling after damage. He gave us a great quote for the job, ended up taking more time than originally quoted (without charging us for it!) to make sure it was dry for paint, was courteous of our home, and was meticulous in fixing small details. We would recommend him to anyone needing work done in their home! Thanks JP Watson Contracting for making our space something we can enjoy and be proud of!

We contacted Woodson waterproofing to give us an estimate when our basement flooded. They were friendly and showed up for evaluation just a few days later (others wanted us to wait a month before coming out to inspect ) During the inspection the representative pointed out some other issues that had been caused from water. Hesitantly we contacted an engineer, He confirmed the method of repair was the best and strongest repair. Work was performed professionally and each process was explained . We are confident in our lifetime warranty and will absolutely call Woodson waterproofing should we have any other issues. We have recommended them to family and they have been left with the same confidence in the company as a whole. Thanks guys

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.
