Jose is awesome! I live in a 1940s Tudor home in Waldo that was in need of some desperate TLC while maintaining it's old charm. Jose fixed a 4ft patch in my basement wall where I had a leak from the upstairs laundry, smoothed over a bedroom ceiling that had some significant water damage from a roof leak, and completed a beautiful archway in my entrance area. I'd recommend Jose to anyone looking for a professional who's not only on time, but does a great job!

Initially hired Mickey and asst to bring new table saw (366 lbs.) from garage where delivered to my basement workshop. So please by effort and result increased scope (and doubled cost) by having them assemble saw and have requested them back for a much larger job involving a major internal household move and the addition of 220v outlets.

Willie and Willie Jr spent a week breaking out part of our basement floor and filling in with new cement in order to level the surface, very pleased with the work. Also performed plumbing repairs, replacing and rearanging water supply pipes, again very happy with work. Willie clearly knows his stuff and is putting together a nice business with his son Willie Jr. Hard workers and good results. Usually started late morning, when they were on the job they were working.

My basement had water in it after a heavy rain. Mark came by and inspected the gutters and suggested the 4 inch size gutters and down spouts did not carry the water away from the house. He put in 6 inch gutters with buried drain pipes to take the rain water away from the house and we have had no water in the corners of the basement and we have had a lot of rain to test the new gutters

Ed is an incredible handyman with an impressive skill set. His attention to detail is second to none and has clear pride in workmanship. We hired Ed to lay tile on our basement floor and hang new baseboards. He knocked out both in under the time he estimated and went above and beyond fixing imperfections in our floor as we get ready to install carpet. He then fixed two doors that wouldn't close and installed a deadbolt on a door that previously had no lock at all. Highly recommend, we will absolutely use his services again!

We are finishing our basement and wanted a custom kitchenette and built-in cabinets for storage. Jeremy did a great job on the work that was agreed upon, came back to make sure the job was done right, and offered suggestions and upgrade options even when the job was done at no cost. We are very happy with our end product!

        We had Gerber Construction finish our basement for us. We told them what we wanted and they got started right away.The owner made good suggestions if we weren't sure about what to do as it was our first time making construction decisions. The basement turned out great. 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.
