It was great to work with Adelson! I hired him to paint the ceilings in my condo and install the backsplash in my kitchen. His team's work is great quality, I love the finished product. I appreciated Adelson's consultation on options for the backsplash with the design decisions, he provided samples on grout colors for me and talked me through the details for the tile. During the job Adelson was very accessible and responsive. If I have other home improvement projects, I will rehire him!

Jason added recessed lighting to my kitchen. His work is top-notch, incredibly reasonably-priced and fast. He arrived early, acted professionally, and finished the job exactly how I wanted it. I will use Jason for all of my electrical projects moving forward. I highly highly recommend him.

Erik assembled our IKEA kitchen cabinets. I highly recommend him. His service was outstanding. He showed up on time and was responsive when the job became more complicated than we expected. He was efficient and friendly and the cabinets--now assembled--look great!

I hired Jeff Thompson to design and build a custom beverage center, a personal work station and a built in linen cabinet in my powder room for storage. He worked with me on the design of all of these pieces and he had great creative ideas. His work is impeccable , the job site was always clean, the project was done in the amount of time he projected and for the price we agreed on. Jeff is very personable so it was a pleasure to have him in my home. I am so happy with the work he did for me. I would highly recommend his services

Boston Best Construction ("BBC")recently completed a full renovation of my kitchen (gutting out old kitchen; tearing down and rebuilding of walls, new plumbing, new electricity, installation of cabinets and finish work) and I am EXTREMELY happy with the results. . My kitchen is beautiful and functional! Eduardo and his team were a pleasure to work with; very professional and neat and I never felt uncomfortable leaving his staff unattended in my home. Eduardo is very dedicated to each job and in my experience was quick in his response time whenever I needed to speak to him. His eye for detail and focus on some "big picture" items were also greatly appreciated. Examples include-offering to re-finish floors in other rooms to make the new hardwood floors continuous and seamless; re-painting walls in rooms where new walls were built (to match) and other areas that needed a fresh coat; as well as offering ideas for placement of lights where the original plan did not work as expected. These extensions to the project really improved the flow of the kitchen to the rest of the house and best, of all were provided at a reasonable price. I highly recommend BBC for their high quality of work, professional manner and exceptional service.

Excellent experience so far. Corey at HouseWorx instills confidence and mobilizes quickly! He's worked with us to develop a plan for our kitchen model that includes taking down a load bearing wall to open up the floor plan in our newly purchased house. He connected us with a kitchen designer who helped us design a beautiful cabinet solution that works within our budget. And then he even helped us obtain the best deal on the cabinets. Cabinets have been ordered, permits are being pulled, and demolition is scheduled to start soon. And all this has happened in less than 2 weeks. I'm very excited to be working with HouseWorks on this project and can't wait to see the transformation.

Mark Dubois's Custom Carpentry did an amazing job finishing our basement. Our new space includes a 3/4 bathroom, game room and workout area. Mark even designed and built custom built-ins, making the final product exceed our expectations. Mark was in constant communication, prompt, neat (always cleaned up before leaving) and did high quality work within our budget. We also hired Mark to replace two exterior doors and repair some cracked floor tiles. Highly recommend.

Wayne did an excellent job creating kitchen cabinets and drawers. He helped design and fit custom made cabinets to suit the space and even came back to make sure the cabinets were adjusted after the countertops were installed. He also gave the best price out of several estimates. I would recommend him.

I posted an ad for IKEA furniture assembly and received a quote from Fernando. The request was for assembling a coffee table and a computer desk. Fernando arrived promptly and provided the best service possible and at a very competitive price. Fernando is courteous and a thorough professional. The work was done under two hours (Fernando provided an estimate of two hours) and was done in the most immaculate manner possible. I cannot recommend him enough. I would like him and his company to get more business, translating to more satisfied customers. Kudos to Fernando! PS: I would update the review with pictures shortly. Just wanted to get it out there.

Thanks I got them. I am planning to do some other carpentry works.

Russell did an excellent job on our kitchen, bathroom and front door. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied with the project. He has very good customer service and communication skills and is very easy to work with. Russell was ALWAYS on time, which we appreciated very much and also didn't mind the dogs being here while he worked. We will definitely be hiring him again for future projects.

I was a reluctant to hire off of Thumbtack. But I had a situation that I had to move fast on in a rental unit. I hired Daniel to redo a bathroom and kitchen and oversee related repairs work such as electrical and plumbing. Daniel and his small crew did excellent work and were always reliable and easy to work with. In my case I did not have a lot of time to manage every detail of the improvements. Daniel and his crew could handle unexpected problems and took great pride in their excellent craftsmanship. They did excellent carpentry, painting, and door hanging. My place went from looking totally beat up and tired to looking great. In short I would definitely recommend Daniel and his crew for any remodel or repair. I have already asked him to look at another job for me at a different location. I will be recommending Daniel without hesitation to anyone that asks for a referral. Anyone can feel free to contact me in private for a referral.

Although we haven't started our kitchen remodel project yet I'm very happy so far with the experience and I know this project will turn out great. My initial meeting with Brandon was excellent, he showed up on time ( I know never happens) and he was extremely knowledgeable and had some great ideas. We then met with the designer they work with and she is great. They both made great suggestions while keeping our budget in mind, they never pushed expensive options or ideas. We had a kitchen design back in two days! I fee like I'm getting a great value for the money we are spending. They weren't the cheapest but they also we not the most expensive price we received. Will update when the project is done.

Ken did some tile work in my kitchen recently as well as some repairs to my doors and caulking our kitchen cabinets. From start to finish, Ken did a fantastic job! He communicated with me from the get-go, had a fair price, and was flexible with the times that he could come. He arrived on our agreed-upon time, performed the work as promised, and did a phenomenal job. He was done quickly and my wife and I were thrilled with his work. We will definitely be utilizing his services again in the future and I recommend him to anyone who needs any type of handyman work done.

My husband and I interviewed four different contractors for the remodeling of our kitchen. Gilson was very professional and easy to talk with. Where this was our first time having a big job done we didn't know what to expect. Gilson and his crew made the transition from gutting the kitchen to finishing the kitchen remodel as smooth as possible All of the people that work for him are exceptional and very professional. We can't say enough about their work ethic and professionalism. We highly recommend GF Construction.

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.
