I hired Chris to install an AO Smith Power Vent 50 gallon water heater. Chris arrived at our scheduled time and assisted with wheeling the water heater to my basement. After determining and collecting the neccesary plumbing parts. Chris completed the install perfectly in a timely proffesional manner and even hauled off the old heater. Very resonable price for a job well don. I plan on using Chris for any future house repairs and remodeling services. Highly Recommended.

Ed did an excellent job. I love my kitchen remodel. I get so many compliments on my new backsplash. He had cabinets, dishwasher and counter tops installed quickly. Plus installed a new window, ceiling fan and doors. He even did some minor upgrades at no cost, like changing my outlets. Was veryour friendly and efficient. Already have plans for him to do more work, backsplash in my bathroom and flooring in basement.

    Ed is a professional and we have trusted and worked with him on several projects . Our basement flooded with damage totaling $40,000. Ed came in with a crew and personally saw that the work was done to code, the contractors were prompt and the entire job was completed on time. Ed returns calls promptly and always gives his honest opinion. He is dependable and honest- we highly recommend Ed for any and all jobs .

    We needed our basement floor tiled after our carpet got ruined in the recent flooding. Dave at Summit was recommended to us by a neighbor so we gave him a call. He came out with some tile samples and prices. We chose a great looking tile and he laid the new floor within the next couple of days. Dave was a big help with getting rid of the musty smell and removing some mold growth on our basement walls. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a reliable professional to get some projects done around the house.

    Rich finished a basement remodeling project in our new home per estimate and completed per his time estimate. We were so pleased we recently had Rich cover our rear deck ( roof extension) and enclosed with partial walls, lighting and screening. A true complement, was when the Village Inspector praised the workmanship of the completed project. ACK, Kildeer, IL.

    We have worked with Beacon for two jobs, one big and one small. They replaced our beat-up old parquet floor with carpeting, we changed the plans on installation day, and they still did a fantastic job on time! And we hired them for a complete basement finishing job....taking a big empty unfinished basement and doing everything, from pulling permits to cooperating in the design, building walls and floors and ceiling, involving electricians and HVAC... resulting in a spacious, comfortable, beautiful four-room basement. Beautiful work at a fair price, on-time, and all their crews were simply delightful to work with!

        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.
