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!

I had Mike repair a ceiling that that had severe water damage in a house that I am remodeling. Mike was very professional and worked very efficiently. He cleaned up when he was finished and offered suggestions and tips for other projects I will be doing in the house. I would definitely hire Mike again

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.

Recently Bob Kohn helped us to remodel our basement room (aka "the dogs' room) and the laundry room. They had been done in 1980's paneling and were dark, unattractive and depressing to be blunt. With some of Bob's recommendations and his talented craftsmanship these rooms are now bright, open and welcoming. Truthfully, they are too nice to keep as the dogs' room, but my canine friends will continue to live in the new airy space! We have also added some gym equipment to the room as we need makeovers too!!! Thanks Bob. Seriously, Bob is talented, extremely professional, and cleans up daily from his work better than I clean the house!! If you have a project, need ideas or suggestions, call him. I can assure you that you will be a truly satisfied customer, as I am!!

Felipe was a true professional. He retiled my entire basement bathroom and shower. Did great work at a very reasonable price and finished in less than a week. Also cut and installed new trim. Looked even better than I expected. Will definitely use his services again.

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!

John did a great job for me, and at a reasonable price. I also had an added on issue with frozen pipes which he helped me with while he was working on the project (replace faucet) that he was hired for. He also noted another issue with the plumbing under the kitchen sink which he addressed as well.

RJ Development did a great job on our electrical needs in an attic that had very little power. Pricing was fair and the job was done same day when he came to quote it. He worked hard until the job was done into the night and completed everything he said he'd do. After happily wiring and hanging 2 large light fixtures and adding several electrical outlets, we were very pleased with his work and had him return form another larger project a few weeks later to include running another circuit for more power (from basement to attic!) and installing two floorboard heaters. He worked and did it all in a day and did a professional job that works great and is discreet in keeping with the rustic decor. Very fairly priced and worked quietly and consistently until the job was complete. We're happy with our project and would hire again. Definitely recommend.

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.

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!

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.

I hired HD construction to repair my deck and install trim and lattice around the perimeter. Heraldo was extremely responsive and was able to schedule me in shortly after he reviewed and quoted the job. The overall result was great and I was very happy with the work. I would definitely recommend HD construction and would hire again for future projects.

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

Igor was great and helped me complete my kitchen remodeling that had gone wrong horribly with Home Depot. Then I got another guy and he messed up the cabinets, but Igor came in and completed the job and made the kitchen functional as well as look great. I will highly recommend him and also use him for all my future jobs around the house.

Mr Fix It was the contractor I decided to use to remodel my kitchen & bathroom. Mark was extremely helpful with the design and layout of my kitchen and bathroom. We discussed a price, and unless I changed something he did not change me a penny more than the agreed price. He was very helpful in every aspect of the remodel. Him and his subcontractors were very honest. The plumber, Electrian, tile person, and painters were very professional. They did everything I asked for and more. Every night the job left clean and organized. I can’t say enough nice things about Mark and his crews. They did a fantastic job.

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.
