I asked Sam to help in building a lego/crafting desk in the basement for our family. He happily took on the project and did an outstanding job in not only building the desk but providing great feedback and changes to the design that helped create the beautiful and stable desk we have now. He also installed a new drop light and electrical outlet in the same room for us that came out great. I would highly recommend him for any project. He is honest and very trustworthy with his work and a great communicator.

I had Mike & team take care of my basement, and garage area after a water leak remediation. They were very professional and worked with lot of honesty and sincerity to complete the project. They were very open and willing to listen to my accommodations all way. I would gladly recommend him and his team and hire them again for any future projects.

Patrick from G&P Home Solutions was upfront about everything and let me know what we could expect from him. I found him to be very knowledgeable and he was not afraid to share his ideas at anytime during the project. I was looking for a 2 car carport on the side of the garage. After I explained what I envisioned, Patrick then shared his expertise and explained his concerns. He understood what I was looking for and showed me a few flaws with my plan. After about 30 minutes of ironing out the details we had a plan and was set to start the next day. He said it should only take about 9/10 days to complete the project. Patrick completed the project in 6 days (because it was a humid day and the cement took a little longer to set) but could have easily had it completed in 5 days. Patrick also had lumber leftover and framed out a 12' x 8' storage unit in the back of the car port at no extra charge. All I had to do was hang the plywood walls and door. I have hired G&P Home Solutions to put up some gutters after completing the carport. I will be calling on Patrick's services again as I have some other projects. Scott W. Loudon NH

We worked with Steve and Joe for an asphalt roof, soffit ventilation, and a roof repair on a sun room from a fallen tree. Steve was great to work with and he was the most communicative of the 10 or so roofing estimates we inquired about. I asked many technical questions as I am an engineer and very detail oriented by nature. They did everything they said they would do and did a quality job. Steve stuck out from the beginning as he called our town building department to find our local codes to find out what was legal as other conractrors were saying that you could put a metal roof over 2 layers of asphalt roof. The roof and sunroom repair was done over 2 days and they cleaned up the yard pretty well. Steve was always easy to get a hold of and really had awesome customer service. They are not the cheapest gig in town but you can trust them and they do quality work. I would hire again. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about my experience

Eduardo and his team did an amazing job on our dormer addition/bathroom renovation. Its difficult renovating and building in an occupied home and he and his crew were nothing but gentlemanly, respectful and kind. They kept the house and work space as clean as possible and were very respectful of our private space. The project fell directly within the schedule allotted in our contract and true to his word, there were zero changes orders even as we adjusted elements along the way. Eduardo himself is a very easy person to work with. He is always available and will respond to any concern or need any time of the day or night. If you’ve ever done any sort of renovation, I don’t think there’s anything more highly to compliment than responsiveness and Eduardo scores a 10 in that category. The end result is the bathroom we dreamed off, inside and out. The tile work is amazing and we are equally impressed with the exterior finishing and detailed time spent matching the new to old on our 1890’s home. We would not hesitate to contact Boston Best Construction for future projects, knowing the time and attention we would receive. Other details of our renovation including pictures can be found at www.birdsofberwick.com Thank you, Eduardo!

John did several small projects for me, including fixing an old window that I couldn't open, building a shelf in a closet, and hanging a large collection of photos that I had laid out and arranged in a precise order. John is creative, resourceful and professional. He is a great, honest guy and a pleasure to work with.

Ryan was excellent to work with. We have worked with other contractors in the past and had some bad experiences so we had some worries moving into this project. Ryan helped us through every step and was very detail orientated. We remodeled our kitchen with Vera construction and are currently talking about having a garage built which our first call will be to Ryan.

We hired Ray to tear out and replace our old damaged concrete floor in the garage. Our experience with Ray was the best! He provided a reasonable bid on Thursday and by Monday he and his crew were at work. Tuesday afternoon and the job was done perfectly. Throughout the process Ray kept in touch to keep my informed about when the dumpster would arrive, when the cement would arrive, and described the work process step by step. The garage is located in a 1820 colonial house and had unique problems that only someone of Ray's skills and experience would handle well. We are pleased with Ray's work and look forward to other projects he will likely undertake for us. I'm relieved we have found a gem named Ray. Hire him and you will be fortunate to hire an experienced craftsman who is a pleasure to work with.

Mr. Andriello came to my condo to access an ice dam in a 6 unit building. He gave me a quote later the same day and was prepared to work the following day. He arrived at the designated time and completed the job within 4 hours. He removed all ice from the walkways that had fallen from the roof. In addition, he sprinkled ice melt on the walkways to ensure the safety of the owners. I am impressed with Mr. Andriello's professionalism and attention to details (applying ice melt). I recommend his services.

My wife and I hired Frank to repair out garage which included fixing the leak (which he couldn't guarantee was set, but not due to a lack of effort), jacking up and leveling the roof, adding supports, collar ties and a new LVL beam in the correct location. The builders had a useless beam in an incorrect location, Frank fixed that. Also he installed two new doors, replaced rotted trim and anchored a loose wall. His work was excellent; he found things no one else had and recommended future improvements. He maintained great communication and sent pictures and videos frequently to keep us updated. The only issue we ran into, as another reviewer mentioned was his prices. I understand they changed after the loose wall was discovered and we wanted a new door installed but we agreed on a final payment upon completion to our satisfaction. This had changed to the point where we owed a small amount when more work still needed to be done. This made us a little nervous but he was trustworthy and after speaking with him about it, he assured us that he would complete everything. He did and with great skill, flexibility and determination. Frank took on a difficult task with the garage and he completed it and then some. I would hire him again and recommend his work to others. Thanks Frank and Jeff!

This couldn't have gone better. Bruno came out and looked at the sites and talked to me about options. He took the time to explain to me anything I was unclear about. Then his helper Matt stayed and tore up our old concrete (about 3x6 area in our garage) and prepared our front steps for new mortar. The following day, they poured the concrete and mortared our steps. The work was very nicely done, and Bruno even came out a few days later when I noticed one of the stones he'd mortared had come loose. I highly recommend this company, and I will use them again.

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.

Chad and his colleague did a flawless job installing a new exterior door and building a custom frame and trim (door frame was not standard), on our 100 year old house. Their workmanship and professionalism from start to finish was top notch. We will absolutely hire them again and give them our highest recommendation!

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.
