Everything you could ask for and more! I usually never write reviews, but when it comes to hiring people and it companies to do work I felt important to share. We all know how difficult it is to find a good contractor. Elsayed came out on a Sunday and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Installed 3 toilets, dishwasher, garbage disposal, 2 faucet fixtures. Also corrected numerous plumbing issues in the process. From start to finish he let me know what was going on every step of the way. His recommendations were spot on as he came across other issues throughout the project. I always felt confident everything would get done right and did it ever! Never strayed from the up front and honest pricing. I’ve already rehired Elsayed to do more work in my home as OSA is a full service general contractor. Hire with absolute confidence!!!

Darcio was incredibly easy to work with, very prompt in his follow through on the estimate and all contact/scheduling thereafter. I'm very pleased with his work and happy to know that we paid someone directly to do the work, not just a contractor. He worked quickly & efficiently & well within our timeframe and budget. We look forward to having him back again for another project soon!

Just hired Steve for my retaining wall replacement project. I really cannot say enough great things about him. He was on time, always answered my calls and requests, and did a killer job. Typically contractors in this business are not that professional and will leave you hanging, but not Steve. Check out the before/after of the wall he just did, the proof is in the pictures. My wife and I could not be more satisfied. Seriously, hire him and you will not regret it.

Matt and his guys could not have been better. They got here when committed, were exceptionally polite and very skilled at all they did. They finished ahead of schedule and the work area was cleaner than when they started the siding repair. D.E. Carroll is my new go to place for construction and repair needs.

Stella turned an existing upstairs bed room into a bathroom. Work was done well overall, and it was a pleasure working with Erik. I especially appreciate his ability to reply to e-mails and texts within minutes, something that most other contractors I vetted for the job couldn't manage in days, or in some cases, not a all. Stella was very helpful in the planning process, and managed all the permitting/inspection work with ease. I would definitely recommend them.

Eduard with BBC just finished our bathroom and I felt like writing a review. A lot of times, people only write reviews for bad service or work that was poorly done, so I thought I'd take the time to recognize some excellent work. I was beyond impressed with BBC. After we had a lot of trouble with another contractor doing other work in our house, we knew we had to find someone different for our bathroom. We had at least 4 different contractors come over to check out the job and give us quotes. BBC actually came in at the best price. On top of that, he really worked with us to get it within our budget and exactly what we wanted it to look like. With 2 kids and limited funds, his flexibility was MUCH appreciated. Not one of the other contractors was willing to work with us in that way. I figured that since he was so great budget-wise and with such a great personality, he'd be difficult once the work got started. I was definitely wrong! He was beyond professional and stayed on top of every subcontractor to make sure they got their work done on schedule--unheard of in the industry! He will answer his cell phone any and every time we called. Eduardo actually finished our bathroom on schedule, he also finished within budget. I would definitely hire him again, and hopefully we have a chance to. I hope you have the same experience that we had....Thanks Eduardo our new bathroom looks great! James Sampaio

Outstanding contractor. Punctual, intelligent, efficient, with an eye for detail while trying to make things better. And, he's funny. Tempted not to leave a review because we need him to be available for more projects. Hire him, he's good.

Every aspect of hiring Mr Kelly was above the norm. He is a breath of fresh air among the run of the mill contractors who often seem too stressed and hurried and also can be unfriendly. Id recommend Patrick without any hesitation. A pleasure to work with and clearly knows his trade well.

The question you should really be asking yourself is why haven't I hired Ryan yet? Then follow that up with bring Steve along too. Absolutely amaizing craftsmanship, professionalism, honest and straight up no BS. I gave them quite the task and they killed it. Not to mention couldn't be nicer guys and trustworthy. If they bid on your job give them a chance and then hire them. We are short 2 boards which is my fault (actually Lowe's but who's counting) and they will come back and finish once I get them. Not many contractors would you pay in full before the job is over but these guys no question. They worked like dogs in the heat, never complained and did amaizing work. See pics but I'll post more once Lowes pulls it together.

We hired Ray to renovate our unfinished basement into two bedrooms. We chose Ray because he offered to get us some needed ceiling height (of which other contractors wouldn’t even offer). Ray is meticulous in his approach to doing things right: From digging down our basement floor to get the height we wanted, to applying extra hydraulic cement and coats of foundation sealer to ensure our basement won’t leak, to leveling our staircase so we don’t feel like we’re falling when coming down the stairs. The renovation posed a lot of challenges which included budget/materials, broken dumpsters, and a deadline of finishing in time for a new baby. We made it through and are grateful. Our 2 daughters LOVE their new rooms and we couldn't be happier!

The Ortega brothers did an amazing job. Daniel was very easy to deal with and gave us great advice. They renovated our kitchen including demolition, a new floor, appliances, counter and cabinets. They also redid three ceilings and completely painted the apartment. WE did this all in two weeks between a changeover in tenants! I say we because my wife and I worked extremely hard to manage the project and keep things moving. The Ortega brothers stayed focused and managed the electrician and plumber and got the project completed by the hard deadline. Naturally, such a compressed time frame was stressful, but Daniel kept his cool! Overall we are very happy with the project.

Very good experience with Northeast Construction. Finally some one who was able to replicate the trim I needed done! A few other contractors tried but couldn't replicate some trim I needed for my fireplace. Brandon assured me they could do it and even told me if they couldn't do it to my satisfaction I would not have to pay. Very professional and very good work.

We had our roof done with them. The owner of this business is a wonderful man. They responded to my initial call immediately and got an appointment within a few days for a free estimate. They came on time and the estimate was emailed to me within a few days. We decided to go with Rainstone construction because of their responsiveness. On the day of work they showed up on time, worked quickly and cleaned up after finishing. We found them reliable, professional with reasonable pricing. We enjoyed working with them and will surely recommend Rainstone to our friends.

They are a life saver! When we needed a licensed contractor to look at a potential structure issue on a condo we had placed an offer on they were able to come that same night and eliminate my fears! He gave me the worst case scenario which helped me to evaluate. The realtor was so impressed she asked for his business card as well! We plan to use this company to install tile! Thank you again!

We have been using John and Dave for over 5 years on all our demolition projects. They both have extensive experience with all building trades which makes them extremely well at selective demolition as they see ahead of just the demo portion thus leaving nothing unfinished regardless of what’s on the plans the project is always 100 percent complete. They also know the politics of working in occupied buildings and always leave the building common areas Undisturbed. Never had one compliant regarding noise or dust during the demo portion of our projects. Please feel free to call me if you need any further information. ZTA Deveolpment LLC Jeff 781-686-2935

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.
