I will be eternally grateful to Keith and his awesome partner for coming to our rescue on very short notice. We recently found ourselves in a predicament with a horrible contractor we hired to finish our basement. I called Keith in a panic and asked him when the soonest was that he could come look at our electric in our basement. He came out with his partner in record time, and upon looking at the basement, he determined that the electrical that was installed was a complete mess - the wiring was wrong in every fixture (we have 20 can lights and 16 outlets on the wall!!) and the wiring from the main panel to the subpanel was incorrect, which would have caused our A/C to overload. Keith and his partner immediately figured out what all the problems were and got to work, fixing it all and leaving us with a beautifully lit basement. Not only were they both completely efficient, but they were very thorough and knowledgeable about how to precisely configure the wiring to ensure our safety in our home. As they were close to finishing the job, Keith made a special trip to Home Depot to get more wiring and the correct breaker to fix the mess the other contractor made of our electrical in the main fuse box. I'm sure this would have cost us much more money than what he quoted us at, but Keith didn't charge us more than what he originally estimated. We cannot thank Keith and his partner enough for a job very well done! I can finally have peace of mind in knowing that my house is not going to burn down, and we owe it all to Keith and his partner! I highly recommend Enigma and I will be referring Keith to any friends or family members looking to have work done. His knowledge, experience, and professionalism is top notch, and we couldn't be happier with his performance.

We hired Chano to paint the interior of our garage, and Chano also quoted on staining our wood deck. Chano was very professional, friendly and thorough during the quoting process and his team did excellent work. In fact, they were able to complete the job the same day Chano came out to quote. Highly recommend!

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 ..

The Genesis group lead by Bruce did a great job on my man cave! They helped to use the space wisely and worked through some interesting challenges. Now that it's furnished, the basement is a great "guy" hang out yet, the family can enjoy it as well. Thanks Bruce!

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.

He kept us highly informed of project timeline and when workers would arrive each day, and came to the worksite often to check on work quality. Everything went smoothly and we are very satisfied with the end result.

James has done so much for us this past month! We bought a new home that needed some improvements....after my husband's failed attempt at staining our floors, his guys swooped in and corrected it. Now they look great! After our gutters overflowed with crap due to a horrible past owner, his guys came and cleaned them out! James himself sealed four large cracks in our basement that were causing water damage, and the other day we had our windows measured so he can replace those too! James is very friendly, accommodating, hard-working, and easy to get a long with. I would and have recommended him to family and friends and we will be doing more work with him in the future.

Perdona construction was great to work with. They gave a very reasonable estimate always showed up on time and made sure I was fully satisfied before completing. They installed a range hood and vented out the ducting, this was not an easy job and required a lot of maneuvering as new issues kept arising once we opened the walls. Julio kept offering new options based on the obstacles that arose and made sure things were done the right way even though it became more time consuming. I will definitely use him again and refer to all my friends

I had a dark and dingy finished basement last updated 45 years ago I wanted to upgrade to a more comfortable space for a family member to move in. Stan came by and he understood what I was looking for pretty quickly. He had ideas and suggestions for my situation we ended up using which were valuable improvements. The crew did good solid work and showed up when expected and the job got done within the expected timeframe. I got a better result than I was expecting particularly in the bathroom/shower and kitchenette part of the unit. Hiring someone when you are doing a big project is a little overwhelming but these guys are straight shooters.

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.
