Keith did an outstanding job wiring my garage, removing unnecessary wiring through out my basement and installing a switch on my vanity. He is very professional. He also helped me trouble shoot plumbing and other items I had in question pertaining to my fist house and as soon as he completes my stove hook up I am going to give him 5 stars, recommend and use him in the future.

Rob Payton did a an excellent job. Fully understood the scope of work the first time, and was very easy to work with. Even when we encountered an issue with the building we were working in and had to stop work early on a day, Rob was reasonable and we promptly scheduled a time for him to complete the work. Would hire again any time!

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.

Bruce and his team at Genesis did a great job in freshening up my aging parents home. Light carpentry and trim work, removing wallpaper, painting, building out a new bathroom on the first floor so they don't have to climb stairs among other projects to make it safer and more livable for them. I would recommend them for this type of work for others.

My experience with QHR has been excellent! The price was very reasonable (low, actually) and the work was done quickly and in a thorough, professional way. The crew showed up on time, cleaned up perfectly and repaired all areas of the building as agreed. This company is outstanding!!

We hired McDonald Construction to tear out some old concrete and pour a new concrete walkway for our building. Mike was excellent to work with and was able to accommodate a tight timeline that we had to complete the work. Mike and his guys knocked out the project quickly and did an excellent job. The improvement made a big difference for our building. I would highly recommend Mike and his team and will definitely be contacting them down the road for other projects.

Ben was great prompt response to my request for a quote and his price wasn't the lowest but pretty close. His trustworthiness and ability to explain the issue in great detail was why I chose him.

After having Brad gives me quotes for replacing my rotting front porch, I made the decision to go with composite decking and I cannot say how happy I am with that decision. The porch looks wonderful and Brad was extremely responsive to my questions, came when he said he was coming and did a wonderful job. Alot of attention to detail and I now have a porch that I feel was custom built. He also replaced cellar doors I badly needed replaced and did a wonderful job of shoring up the sides as well. I have had a lot of compliments on the work and would certainly recommend Brad to anyone looking for a porch or deck build. Wonderful job!!

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!!

I highly recommend using Hammell Homes for contractor work. Hammell Homes worked on a couple of projects in my building. Both projects were done with quality and at a fair price. I will definitely use Hammell Homes again for any housing repairs/projects in the future. Brian L.

Quality work was performed and after JAVA inspected other downspouts, replacements were installed where needed. Several gutter companies came to give estimate and wanted to replace gutters on the entire house, but JAVA fixed the downspout without the need to replace the entire house. Also installed gutters on the back of my garage with downspouts ready for rain barrel hook ups.

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.
