Tim did a fantastic job. He removed solid wood cabinets above the fridge that had been installed in a unconventional way. Nailed securely into wood paneling. He did it with no damage at all to the wall. He was friendly, on time, and very knowledgeable. He even offered me information and ways to finish the wall behind the cabinets. I am overly please with the work and will be having him out to do other jobs around my house.

I cannot say enough about working with Mr. Pavey today. He arrived at the scheduled time only to find out the job was actually 3 times what I had described in our email exchange. He did not panic but got right to work on the very tough job of removing old kitchen tile and plaster walls. He graciously charged a more than fair and minimal charge for all the extra work. He finished in half a day what would have taken us 2 weeks to complete. He also helped us with several other odds and ends along the way and gave us much good information for moving forward with our kitchen remodel. We feel thankful that he is going to help us with the next phase also. With the help of James today we made the most progress yet on the project. It was a great day!

Jorome with three kings recently came out to my house and installed a couple of new cable outlets in my sons bedroom and playroom. This included fishing the coaxial through the attic and down the walls, looks like it has been here since the house was built. Great professional service and my son is happy!! Highly recommend.

Ray is a very kind man who did a lovely job painting 2 of our ceilings- one being around 18 feet tall and put polly on our front door, garage door and stair railing. He was timely, quick, friendly and inexpensive. The one small thing is that he left marks on the wall from his ladder and very small paint splatters on our hardwood in a few areas. He quickly returned and painted over the areas on the wall with left over wall paint that we had. I have eagle eyes and see all the small things. Ray was so kind and did a wonderful job. I would like to use him again in the future.

My experience was excellent. CT McDonald put in a new driveway and retaining wall for me. The work was very difficult and the quality of the work was exceptional. CT explained each step of the process and went beyond what was expected. I would highly recommend them not only for concrete work, but any type of work you may need completed.

My experience was very good. I had a bedroom that One wall that I stripped three layers of wallpaper with damage to the drywall. She repaired large areas and skim coated before painting room and walk in closet. She painted the ceiling and trim. She was finished in 1 1/2 days. Nice clean up. I will use her again. Price was good for all she did and I didn't have to hire a drywall man.

    Two old rocking chairs, family heirlooms, were restored to beautiful and functional states by Babe Builder. One of the pieces needed a back so this talented carpenter researched the background of the rocker and duplicated the back piece to look exactly as it did originally. I received a personalized cutting board, handmade by this young lady, as a gift and was so impressed by the quality of her work that I had one made for a dear friend's birthday. I highly recommend Babe Builder for refinishing/restoration of furniture and other wooden projects as her attention to detail, precision and love of wood is obvious in the finished products.

        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.  

        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.

        Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
