Called Keith for new electrical work before finishing our basement. Keith"s schedule allowed him to do our work the next day! Prompt response and finished our job in a timely matter. He really takes pride in this work he does! very efficient and neat. Good cleanup job when work was finished. Love our new lightings and look forward to finish our basement. I would hire keith again for any of our electric needs in the future. I wish more workers had Keith's work ethic!

Fernando and his team were great. They responded quickly and were very polite and professional. They came and finished my job with in a couple hours. We had some water damage from a burst pipe. They came in and it looks like new. We're excited to have our basement back.

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!

Sam, was quick to respond and did the work promptly for my client who was getting her house ready for sale. Him and his crew came out on a Sunday. They painted the bathroom and basement floor. They also cleaned the entire house and removed all miscellaneous stuff left behind by the previous tenants. I highly recommend Sam and his professional staff.

Dan understood our vision for our basement remodel, had good ideas and was very friendly. 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.

Jeff worked within my very short time constraints. He came on board to drywall after I'd had drain tiles installed in my basement and did the necessary repairs. I'd recommend him.

The stairs from the kitchen to the basement were covered with old linoleum. My husband and I removed some of the lino and saw the wood was bad. When Glenn arrived, we told him to replace the tread and risers with new oak.They were stained and finished with polyurethane. A railing was also installed.

T & M did a fabulous job getting a home that was in rough condition ready for sale. Besides painting the main floor, they brought a basement back to life and repaired some unsightly issues. The house shows very well. They were thorough and professional. I would use them again. Very satisfied.

Juan came by and did a walk thru with me and I felt very confident in his skills. He did not pressure me or talk down to me, he listened to my needs and concerns. I was out of town while he worked and Juan checked in daily with pictures of the progress. My basement job was gross, complicated and messy. Juan finished it quickly and cleaned up so well I almost didn't recognize the pictures he sent me as my basement. His pricing is very fair and his work was excellent.

This is the second project Perdomo construction has done for me. The first time they built a small bedroom in the basement. This time they remodeled my kitchen. As is the first time, they have done a great job. Clean, fast and professional. The workers are punctual, helpful and above all very good people with great skills. I would recommend the company to anyone

I have been looking for a company to help with the remodeling in my basement. Im glad I found B & B Construction. I called Mr. Wilson out for a quote and it was the most affordable that I came across. They got started the next day. The started by taking up the tile and taking down the damaged drywall. They were very professional and respected my time. They showed up when they said they would and got a substantial amount of work done in only a few hours. After they were done with the drywall they neatly painted the whole basement. I requested the baseboards to be painted blue and the walls white. I was very satisfied with the overall cleanliness and quality of the job! Ill be contacting B & B again for my next home improvement projection the spring as well as recommending them to friends! Thank you all!

Moussa and his crew completely did my basement. Before starting, my basement was completely raw and Moussa worked with me in understanding what work needed to be done how he was going to do it, what the final finishes were going to look like (prior to starting), finished early and was did a tremendous job. I highly recommend Moussa's work. Moussa also gave a fair price, other quotes I received were much higher and doubt they could have done nearly as good of a job. Please contact if you need before / after pictures. All my concerns, big or small, and at any point in the construction process were answered and addressed without hesitation. Nothing to complain about when the job was finished! Task performed (all to code): Framing, drywall, tiled, installed an entire bathroom in the basement (had to install sump pump), concrete, HVAC, gas lines, electrical, lighting, installed a spiral staircase where there was no staircase originally.

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.
