Elsayed respondes quickly to my project and provided me with a very reasonable estimate. He showed up at 7 on a Sunday morning and worked all day until all the kitchen cabinets and new plumbing fixtures were installed. He even returned to change the sink once the countertop was installed. Very impressed by his punctuality and clear desire to do a high quality job in a timely manner. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to remodel their kitchen!

Dave did an amazing job helping us very quickly with house projects in prep for a sale. He did tiling, drywall, flooring and painting. So great to have his help that made our lives easier! He was prompt, professional and got the job done on time. I'd highly recommend him to others needing help with house projects.

I've hired Erik on numerous occasions. The initial time was for furniture construction in my apartment. He was not only skilled, but efficient, honest and trustworthy. I had never hired anyone to do any work like this before - I highly recommend him for anyone, but especially someone unsure or new to hiring outside help. Subsequently, I've contracted Erik for additional projects and also for larger remodeling and construction work through my company. I really cannot say enough good things. You won't be disappointed.

ER construction is the best contractor that I have ever dealt w. We own a home in CT that we rent out - had some rain damage. I reached out to over 8 contractors and nobody would return my call. Those who did gave me outrages quotes. We live in TX and ER construction was reasonable and worked with me! He worked through all the issues we had and he was able to handle them all! He repaired the roof, he replaced and repaired walls! He did an amazing job. I have some upgrades that we are planning on doing to the home and ER construction will be the only contractor I will work with! I highly recommend him and will share photos

We just completed a full basement (from the studs) renovation with Eduardo and we couldn't be more impressed with the BBC team. The quality of work for the price can't be beaten and Eduardo and his subs worked hard to meet our tight deadline without compromising quality. Eduardo is knowledgable and trustworthy and professional while he and his team are very considerate and thoughtful. We would highly recommend Boston Best Construction and have our next renovation project lined up with them already!

After struggling for a long time to find a contractor to open up our downstairs space and renovate a bathroom, we struck gold when Sean was referred to us! This was our first renovation, and had no idea what to expect. Sean is incredibly responsive, reliable, attentive, and talented. Not only that, but he is honest and trustworthy. His attention to detail, our privacy, and to our numerous requests, made the experience well worth the wait. No job comes without obstacles and hiccups - that is just part of renovation - but Sean and his team kept us informed daily and ensured they could handle everything. He expects the best of all professionals on his team, and does not settle for less. And if he's not satisfied, he works overtime to make it right. We are thrilled with the results and look forward to future projects.

Daniel did a large tile job in our basement. After a recent flood, we needed to replace our pergo flooring. Tile can be so expensive but Daniel worked with our budget and got the job done. We will definitely be recommending him to friends and family. I was very stressed to get the job done by Thanksgiving and Daniel promised me it would be done. It was indeed done and I couldn't be more grateful for his hard work! Thank you again!

Russell did a very fine job on our garage. We shifted gears a couple of times during the project but the problems were well taken care of and on time. Very pleased with the service and at a fair price. Down to earth, easy to communicate with, and good quality work- all things we value, and will be calling back in the future for some remodeling needs.

These guys were great. We used them for a basement remodel. They were very communicative. Always keep me informed of when the would be there and what they were doing. The job took a few weeks and they always told me when they would be returning. And they did. They really cared about achieving the results we wanted. Even when we went back and forth on what we wanted to do. They were super flexible with us. If you're reading this review, you are considering hiring them. Stop considering, and hire them. You will not regret it. I certainly didnt.

The guys at MKJC Carpentry are really good what they do. I’ve hired their services multiple times in the past and they haven’t disappointed yet. I recently had a job and I went with another contractor (big mistake on my part). He didn’t know how to work with the insurance companies and he was impatient and his attitude was not a good one. I ended up having to let him go. I called MKJC and they rescued the job. I should of called them first. In life, you’ll have regrets, but live and learn. Mario O.

I can’t recommend Equity Builders highly enough for any level of remodeling or renovation jobs you may be doing. We recently remodeled our kitchen and bath, and having worked in real estate/property management, I have worked with contractors and know when I am working with someone who takes genuine pride in the quality of the work they’re and that certainly describes Equity Builders. They were also very conscientious about soliciting our feedback every step of the way and ensuring that we were happy with the work and the final product. Remodeling, or any kind of renovation whether big or small can be stressful, having Equity Builders as our contractor really helped alleviate the majority of our concerns. I will definitely be calling them for any future renovations we may have. Diamela Kodra Real Estate Professional NextGen Realty

True professionals are as good as gold! I put off remodeling my home for years because I dreaded the hassle of dealing with contractors and designers. When I finally committed to having the work done, I went through at least 8 General Contractors and designers to find the right fit. Each of these was either overly expensive, or had overbearing personalities, or sounded like used car salesmen.... Until I connected with Byron Cuhna and Co. Byron runs a family operated construction company that handles all size jobs. Byron came in and helped my wife and I work through the design of a large addition 26x24 on with a two car garage and bedrooms/bath above it, as well as another 15x15 family room on the opposite side of the house. Byron not only gave us great design ideas, he helped us add features that would be more cost effective and efficient. Byron and his son Eric were on the job from start to finish, and made the experience of living in "construction" much more bearable, and at a price affordable enough that I can still pay my children's college tuition next year. I highly recommend Byron Cuhna construction, I will update this review with final before and after pictures of my house. Carmelo

Premier Remodeling & Insulation LLC is an excellent company that has fully satisfied my home renovation needs. Mario is a trustworthy, courteous and hardworking contractor. The renovation was spectacular and more than I was hoping for. I renovated my upstairs bathroom and also installed a bathroom downstairs in my basement. Mario’s attention to detail and great craftsmanship definitely displayed in his work and in the final outcome of the renovation. I could not be more satisfied as a first time client. Every penny spent was worth it in the end. You made me very happy and proud of my house. Thank you Mario!! Frantz Charles

This was one of the best Home Remodeling experiences we have ever had. We worked with Ely Jimenez of Del Cid Design and Construction. Ely does the best workmanship we have ever seen. He is wonderfully communicative and professional. He provided us with photographs of every single detail that he worked with. He was very flexible, patient, and creative. He transformed our old-fashioned bathroom into a beautiful, modern bathroom. He somehow fit a large, working washer and dryer into a closet. He is an excellent general contractor who works well with multiple sub-contractors. We 100% recommend Del Cid Design and Construction for any home remodeling task, no matter how big or small.

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.
