Edgar has consistently provided excellent value and well crafted electrical work for our Owner / Builder new home construction project. He has roughed-in, and set outlets, switches and fixtures. Post construction he has wired a Generac whole house standby generator and added several additional circuits for me. Sometimes it is frustrating dealing with small sub-contractors; not with Edgar- he is always on time, always efficient, always great quality work. We couldn't recommend him more highly.

We were exceeding pleased with the work that EBRR Property Maintenance Services performed for us - a new driveway, walkway and garden wall. We also worked with Ed Bilo, he and the entire work staff were extremely professional, attentive to our ideas and a source of excellent advice. We will certainly use them for a variety of other lawn issues that we have in mind.

I have worked with this company twice now, and I am incredibly happy with the jobs that were done. One job entailed creating a new cinder block retaining wall with decorative bricks on top as well as leveling out of my yard. The final results look fantastic and it was all completed within 1 week. The second job entailed repairing/recontruction of a large stone retaining wall with installation of a drainage system to prevent further cracks and damage. There was a tight deadline to get this complicated project completed, and everything was finished on time! Correspondence was prompt, and the final result looks fantastic. I couldn't be happier with the professionalism and hard work by American Home & Hardscape.

If you’re in need of a reliable, honest and get-it-done general contractor for your home remodeling needs, Al and his crew are the GO TO GUYS! We recently had a rather large basement remodel project where we took an unfinished space (approx.. 900 sq. feet) to a home office/ dental laboratory finish. There were a lot of moving parts involved – all new electrical/ mechanical/ plumbing; installation of egress & small sliding window(s), walk-out door w/ retaining walls and pavement; added bathroom & work/equipment room. Al took the design plans from a paper to presence, and really worked with us to stay on time and on budget. From the initial consultation, he took his time to go over details of the project and provide us with a written proposal on the spot. What was also appreciated was that he used upgraded materials rather than standard builder supplies, which really makes a huge difference in appearance! Al and his guys are meticulous, detailed & very clean – at the end of each work day, the floors were always swept & materials put away. Another consideration for us was trust since my husband & I weren’t home during the day. I can say with complete confidence that you can trust Premier Home Services to do their job, in your home without supervision. We will definitely use them again for our next home project. Thanks Al!

Ken & his team were very helpful in terms of designing and building our patio, retaining wall & deck. We were in a rush to get it completed and they managed to exceed the deadline by finishing in 2 days and with 2 days to spare. Professional, courteous, and excellent work. We plan to have Ken and his team back for more work. Definitely have our recommendation!!!

Fantastic quality of work, and thorough clean-up afterward. We had two hose bibs and water shut-offs replaced which required cutting through plaster. The wall repair is seamless.

I now have a new [as in replaced] DECK thanks to Mr. Ingram. He first had to demolish a 30-year-old ground deck before construction of the new deck could start. It took the better part of a day to efface the old deck along with a few vines. When the demolition was finished, my yard was perfectly clean. My new deck looks fantastic; I cannot wait for the pressure treated wood to dry so I can stain it. Mr. Ingram advised me to let the wood dry for some time before staining or sealing otherwise I would have stained it the next day. I am exceedingly happy with the work completed by Mr. Ingram. He is professional, shows attention to details, is polite and friendly. I would definitely hire him for any future work. [My thanks to you Mr. Ingram]. Shirley Laurel, Maryland

God dings contracting was perfect for our family's needs. Mike and his wife Janeane were very professional and went above and beyond to make sure the best quality work was put into finishing our basement. They did not cut any corners and even did parts of the work themselves, instead of contracting out, in order to meet our budget. They walked us through every single step and decision and ensured that we fully understood everything. When complications in the project arose, like permit/code issues or insufficiencies in the original builders work, Mike did everything possible to make the necessary adjustments in the most cost effective ways. He even went down to the county with my husband to work out permit issues. And most importantly, I never had to worry about leaving them in our home with workers going in and out; they made sure we were comfortable with all aspects of the job. I couldn't be more pleased with the work that they did on our home.

After interviewing several builders, my wife and I selected Winthorpe Design & Build based on previous projects. Scott and his staff were attentive during the pre-construction phase, the building phase and remain so many months after the project was completed. Krag (Designer/Estimator was very close to being on budget (after several changes we had made) and in the end Winthorpe’s craftsmanship exceeded our expectations. We have received numerous complements about our home and are happy when people drop by and ask "who built your home?". I would hire his firm again but that won't be necessary, my wife & I are living in our dream house with the security that it was well designed and built. We had a few questions after moving in and Krag came out to walk through (again) to explain how some of the high tech items we wanted worked (media room,security system and the whole house stereo, lights and window shades (all wireless and that are controlled by our tablets & phones ).

I don't usually write reviews but I had what was a big job to me (the framing of my next home) come out so far beyond my expectations that I felt compelled to praise John Johnson as well as Javier Pez and his crew for their exemplary work on my new home. They made it happen exactly like I wanted. I am not experienced but they are and I am so pleased with how they took the drawings and made it happen. From concrete foundation with stem walls to a fully framed house in a week. Amazing. Could not be happier and it is so rare for me to have something go so exceptionally well that I just really want to thank Encore Builders and Thumbtack for bring us together. Job done was beyond expectations and I would highly recommend Encore Builders to anyone who wants exceptional work for a very competitive price.

I needed a fancy kitchen exhaust fan mounted and vented through an exterior masonry wall, a fireplace hearth with missing tile repaired and a old tile floor in an enclosed sunroom painted. Tony gave me a fair quote and payment terms. Tony and his workers were punctual, provided excellent workmanship, and completed all 3 jobs on schedule. I would definitely hire again.

I take great pleasure in recommending Odilon Lopez and his crew from Maple Creek LLC. They have done both hardscaping and landscaping projects for me at different times over the past two years. These include a retaining wall in the front yard and then landscaping it with grasses, flowers, shrubs and a Crape Myrtle, then topped it off with topsoil and sod. The final result is absolutely outstanding! In the next year we attacked the back yard installing a tgorgeous paver patio - with curved edges and a sitting wall surrounding a fire pit - a small retaining wall, and a natural stone staircase through a magnificently landscaped grade including tall grasses, roses, shrubs, and Crape Myrtle bushes and tree. My wife and I could not be happier. Working with Odilon was a pleasure, apart from difficulties with weather, the crew was on time and very effective. One of the components of the fire pit, the spark guard, did not meet up to Odilon's satisfaction and he had it replaced at no expense. At times Odilon would have to leave his crew and attend to other jobs, which I felt occasionally resulted in difficult decision making. But now he has another supervisor to assist him, I have found this concern to have become minimal. I am pleased to recommend Maple Creek LLC and Odilon Lopez very highly.

We hired Pardo Design and Renovation, initially, to open up a wall in our old home. The existing single door was removed and they crafted a lovely case opening that replicated one from another home of the same period. It completely changed our living space. It feels so open while retaining the distinct feel of each room. Most people who visit don't realize it's not original to the house. We were so happy with their work that we've had them back for a few other projects around the house: patching plaster, removing wallpaper, painting (lots of painting!), adding custom elements to a fence, etc. The work is very nice and the estimates were fair. Great people to work with, so accommodating. Highly recommend.

We recently selected Baiza for our paver sealing project. Marvin and his crew have done a great job to meet our tight timeline with great quality of work and competitive price. They cleaned the front driveway and backyard, installed sand and sealer and finished the cleaning. The weather was not cooperative with us but Marvin tried his best to handle the impact of the weather on the project and gave us the best result. Marvin is very detail oriented and he found there were two sharp pieces of stone on the retaining walls at our backyard left by the previous contractor. He mentioned it to us and showed to us it is not safe to the kids and he got rid of those sharp pieces for us. His true customer oriented service is excellent and we are very satisfied with his work and would like to recommend his company to our friends.

Juan Carlos did an excellent job for me and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a handyman. I ask Juan Carlos to open up a shallow utility closet, fix the damaged dry wall, add new electrical outlets and create a recessed space to mount a television with a base and shelving. I am very happy with the results of his work. Juan Carlos paid very close attention to detail and helped brainstorm the final results with me. He was very flexible when I asked for changes and did not rush the job when the additional items took more days than initially planned. This was one of the key qualities I liked about Juan Carlos, he took the time to do everything properly and to ensure the quality of his work. He also took the time to make sure that my floors were protected, hung plastic to make sure the dust didn’t spread around the apartment, and cleaned up at the end of each day of work. He even took his shoes off when going to other parts of the house that weren’t covered to keep things clean. Juan Carlos is a friendly guy and easy to work with. He came quickly after I made a Thumbtack request to give me a quote, gave me a very fair price and kept in communication with me throughout the build. I will hire Juan Carlos again for any future work I need in my home. Thanks!

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.
