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.

I had many questions about some work we were considering and David was prompt and professional in his responses. He answered my questions straight forwardly when other contractors came back with excuses. Unfortunately we decided not to go ahead with the work, however, if we change our mind David is at the top of the list.

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

I needed somebody to build and install a custom floor-to-ceiling sliding door to split my room when I want it. Not too many contractors will take a job like this requiring out-of-the-box thinking, but Joe did. He came up with a solution that saved me hundreds on the material cost and submitted a quote that I could not refuse. And I’m glad I’ve hired him. That was my best contractor experience ever (and I worked with dozens of contractors on different projects before). Joe and Frank worked as a perfect team complementing each other and coming up with the best course of actions. Joe would reply to any text message almost immediately, answering all the questions I had for him. The project was done as promised, on time and on budged. Thank you, Joe and Frank. I would recommend Speranza & Son to anyone who needs a job done professionally, efficiently, and with minimal headache.

Jeff responded quickly to my inquiry for siding repair and setup a time to come look at the project. We agreed on the terms and Jeff and crew quickly completed the work and did a fine job. There was a minor leak as result of having to disconnect a water valve that,upon notifying Jeff , he had his plumber out to fix within an hour. Recommended.

We needed to have a small job done in our office during working hours. It was great to have Cliff and his staff here with us. They were respectful of our work environment, always let us know when they were coming and going, and gave us clear expectations. The workmanship was professional. My boss was so pleased he's in the process of hiring The Carpenters for another improvement 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.

The team that was sent to my home to finish my basement and main floor was wonderful. They were extremely polite, organized and provided quality work. The price was more than reasonable and I couldn't have asked for me out of a general contractor.

XCC did a perfect job installing my hardwood floors in two large rooms. There were lots of complications with rooms being out of square, un-level surface around the fireplace due to mortar, and border patterns with different wood, and insets. All of it came out perfectly and with very little wood waste (way less than other contractors would have done). Xavier and his crew also did a great job replacing my damaged sub-floors throughout the entire house - a task that no other contractors were willing to take on. Xavier and his crew always worked hard and are very pleasant to be around. They have wide knowledge and skill sets and are willing and able to do anything you might need. No lazy-bones or burn-outs in this crew!

As one does, or should rather, I met with several contractors before meeting Paul; and none of them quite matched Paul’s personality and easy-goingness. Paul and his crew, particularly Joe, worked diligently, respectfully, and smartly on our front deck. We used high-end products, in which Paul has much knowledge with, as well as having the courtesy to talk us through each step of the build. Supreme Home Improvement came in under budget, but by no means whatsoever does that equate to the work being inferior, not at all, as Paul completely and utterly transformed our pitiful outdoor deck to an oasis in our home, and all done with proficiency and astuteness. When conversing with Paul, his down-to-earth and honest character will shine through each and every time. For me, that was a true bonus. To add, I would most certainly hire Paul and his team again. Thank-you!

JP came to look at one project for us and ended up taking care of two! We had a few different contractors come through, but JP was the most professional and had the best vision for completing what we were trying to accomplish. Everything went perfectly according to plan and we couldn't be happier with the finished result. We discussed costs up front and everything came in on budget. Very responsive to any questions or concerns that came up and had perfect suggestions for when we didn't know which direction to go in. Very happy with everything and won't hesitate to call for any future projects!

Byron Cunha did a great job adding a second egress to my multi-family home. He took the time to talk to me about the project requirements and explained how things would be done in a way that made me feel confident that I would get a good finished product. He always got back to me when I had questions and he was able to work with me when requirements had to change. Byron's team made sure I was satisfied with the result before closing the project. Definitely a good crew to work with.

Jim responded immediately on Thumbtack. When I contacted him he returned my call the same day. He came to the job site when he said he would. By his demeanor I could tell that he was serious about the job. He took measurements and discussed the project. Within a short time Jim gave me a quote which I found reasonable for what needed to be done. Jim and his crew worked steadily and professionally until the job was completed. He made suggestions which were smart and appropriate and never balked when I suggested changes. When the project was finished I could not have been more satisfied. It is not enough to say that Jim's work was outstanding. It is superb. He is a competent and honest contractor.

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.
