I can't say enough good things about Danny and Russell. Both guys are a DELIGHT to work with. They stuck with the job of making an old garage look great, from start to finish. Woodworking, painting, garage door repair, siding, are just some of the things they did for us. You won't be sorry if you use D. R. Remodeling!

I hired Brandon to demolish some existing kitchen cabinets and fit the new cabinets. He did an excellent job. I tip my hat to Tim Taylor who built the cabinets for me. Only one small issue but that was because the floor was un-even due to a previous foundation issue. Brandon got all of the cabinets in and level. I asked him to do some additional work for me. (Building my Counter tops for the cabinets and one for the kitchen island) Should be installed tomorrow. His prices are exceptionally reasonable and his attitude was phenomenal I would HIGHLY recommend Brandon for any general contract work. J Ray Jackson

Repairs around the house including fixing water and termite damage on inside and outside walls and replacing the siding on a separate storage building. Jon and his team showed up when they said they would, communicated with us about what they were finding and worked with us to find the best fixes and solutions to what was wrong. And the price was a little less than the original estimate. They did a great job!

They painted the sanctuary of our church. Not only were they completely respectful of the church building, they did an outstanding job. We never dreamed it would've turned out so pretty. Faith Temple Church in Bossier City.

Steven built a wheelchair ramp, a trashcan bin, and a large work table for a neighbor. He also built a new box for a large shop fan, and re enforced some chain link fencing. He worked alone, and the jobs were done in a timely manor, and did a good job.

Josh and Jamie did a spectacular job finishing the inside of a storage building, aka, "cat house". They completed the job very close to what they bid and informed me of any changes ahead of time. They worked tirelessly until the job was complete. They are very trustworthy and I would definitely recommend them for any remodeling/construction needs.

      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.
