I used Thumbtack to find a contractor to demolish a small two car garage structure on my property, clean and haul away. Kingdom Restoration (owner Philip Raymond) responded to my request for a quote within minutes. Phil was extremely patient while I worked through multiple permit processes. His crew was timely, courteous and very detail oriented. Kingdom Restoration completed the tear-down and cleaned the site beyond expectation. Absolutely one of the most positive contractor experiences I have had. So thankful for their work.

I met Tom after the first contractor I hired to remodel my home stopped showing up on time and eventually walked off the job. I was in a panic and found Tom on Thumbtack. He was the first person to respond to me and was at my house to give me a quote within 2 hours that same day. I met with 5 different contractors that day and hired Tom because of his professionalism and knowledge of what needed to be done. I was replacing all the floors throughout my home (including 2sets of stairs), re-doing my fireplace, painting the whole house, painting cabinets & rails. Framing and installing a new door and he replaced all of my baseboards throughout my home as well. He was at my house the very next day, like he said he would, with a full crew and getting everything done for me. His prices were extremely reasonable too. It was a huge relief having him there and taking care of things for me! He was like my knight and shining armor and road in on his white horse and totally saved the day for me!! I would highly recommend him to get your job done on time and at a very reasonable price!! Thank you, Tom!!

We hired LoProstis to assist with a water heater issue in our home. Brian, from LoProstis, called us right away for an initial consultation over the phone, and within an hour, he arrived at our house to explain what went wrong and the course of action needed to repair the water heater. We appreciated his honesty and the accuracy of his quote in order to fix the issue, but more importantly, we appreciated the education that came along with it. Not only did Brian install a new water heater in our home; he also help us to select a reputable brand, based on his recommendation and hauled away the old water heater. He did not compromise on his professionalism to charge a higher fee (given the fact it was a weekend and one of the coldest day of the year), nor use that as an opportunity for a surcharge. It's very rear to find an honest contractor and who's willing to do the right thing, and Brian has both. He exceeded our expectations and got up and running within hours. We would definitely hire Brian again. Thank you for your hard work and excellent service, Brian.

As an architect, I was looking for the right person to help me with my complete re-roofing project in Naperville and after talking to over 8 contractors I had selected Joe of Fox Restoration because I trusted him and knew that he would do it right and fix any concerns that I may have...bottom line I was right, the project was perfect and he did take action when it came to my input and concerns...he not also showed up everyday to supervise his team but at the end of each day, after his crew left the job site, he even went as far as to do extra cleanup work to make sure the property looked orderly and was safe of any debris and nails on the ground. I would without any hesitation recommend Fox Restoration for any existing or new roofing project...[Thanks so much Joe, you were indeed a true professional who is detailed oriented like myself!] All the best, Alex

Stayed home from work as I expected him. Calls me 30 mins to an hour before expected arrival and says he can’t come until next week. Need this to be done ASAP and now have to start all over with new contractors. Not happy primarily because I stayed home from work to accommodate his arrival.

Jim and his team did a fantastic job. After many failed attempts several contractors to repair a leaky roof, Jim and his team were able to immediately identify the source of the leak and repair the problem. Advantex is a company built on honesty, strong work ethic and superior craftsmanship! I would definitely recommend Jim and his team at Advantex for your project!

This was the easiest contractor I have ever had to work with. Brad demo'd my current deck and converted it to a one level deck. Brad's pricing was right in line with other quotes I received, he always showed up right on time, and the work was done exactly how I had envisioned it. He was even flexible enough to push back the original install date when I requested it at the last minute because I was going out of town. Do not bother trying someone else, this is the guy to hire. I strongly recommend him.

Mr. Joel Christopher responded promptly to my request. He gave me a very good quote on the job. He came to my residence and completed the job in one day. He had to take out three doors and put in new ones. He was very professional during the project. Mr. Christopher also noticed a couple of minor repairs at my residence and completed them without charge. I highly recommend this contractor and I plan on utilizing his services in the near future. He is in the process of giving me a quote on another project. I had a great experience with Joel- he pleased my wife which is not an easy task.

HGR construction showed up right before the time of the appointment. He was thorough, answered all of our questions, and was honest. I appreciated his ability to interact with us. PLUS, he has an extensive background, which gave him more knowledge about our project. We would definitely have him in the future.

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to Gary and Source One! My company wanted to get some work done for a shelter that helps Veterans and had me look for a contractor. I came across Gary on Thumbtack and the entire experience working with him has been beyond excellent! Gary got the job done in less time than expected but the quality of his work was far greater than expected as well. He is personable, professional, fair and honest. The people who work full time at the shelter raved about Gary. They are so grateful for the wonderful work he did on their offices. I couldn't have asked for a better contractor!

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.
