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.

Mike is a true professional. He just finished installing drywall in our new 1000 Sqft basement remodel. Mike took the time to listen to our needs and expectations before the job got started, kept me informed throughout the job, and made sure to address any questions I had along the way. He quoted a fair price and stayed within budget. Mike was always timely and courteous. He has committed to standing by his product should there be any issues in the future. Can't ask for much more! I'm extremely satisfied with the outcome of this project and would strongly recommend Mike to anyone looking to have drywall work done!

I sent in my request at midnight and the next day in the morning they were here and said they could actually do three out of three projects where I thought they only could do two out of three projects. They were so nice and did great work very polite and very reasonable Replace basement windows fixed lag bolts under the deck and did some roofing work. I'm selling the house and the new buyer wanted all of this done and for years I've been trying to find someone just to do the basement windows Good people. Good job. Good price. And right on time. What more could you ask for?

I hired Felipe to build closets in two bedrooms and patch/refinish the pine flooring on the second floor of my house. I got several quotes and chose FW Home Improvement because the quote was very reasonable and they were available to start right away. Felipe and his partner were very courteous and professional. Felipe responded to my emails and texts promptly. They worked extremely hard every day and got the work done right on schedule including a couple of extra little jobs I added. There were a few small details that were left undone, but overall I found their work a very good value for the price. I plan to use Felipe for some additional work that I have planned for my house.

Strongmen Waterproofing did a great job! They looked at my elderly parents’ pump system the same day that I contacted them. They installed a temporary pump because the existing pump died and a heavy rain storm was predicted to dump 3” in less than 24 hours. If my parents didn’t have an operational pump, their basement would have flooded. When the new pump and battery backup arrived they installed it. I love the Pump Spy monitoring system that Strongmen Waterproofing recommended. I get weekly updates via email on the system so I can see that it’s running properly. I can also check the app on my phone during big storms to make sure there are no issues. My parents are in their 80’s and they no longer have to worry about water in their basement.

Boston best construction has exceeded my expectations since day 1. They are honest, hard-working, efficient, responsive and friendly. I can always reach Eduardo to discuss anything - whatever time of day and on the weekends. His main crew is amazing - they show up early and work late to complete the job quickly. They always clean up after themselves. They also go above and beyond to assist (I had water in my basement after a rainstorm and his team stayed late to help us clean up the mess!). When an additional cost arose from the electrician, Eduardo absorbed the cost himself. I will definitely be using them for any future projects and highly recommend him to anyone else who wants the job done right.

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.

If it was possible to give Daniel and his team a 10 out of 5, I would! They completely transformed our basement from a dingy dated room to a bright modern space. Daniel was extremely responsive during the estimate/ quoting process and completed our project in an very quick timeline. We received quotes from other contractors, but Daniel's responsiveness and approach truly set him apart. I cannot recommend Daniel and his beautiful work enough!

Stan came and fixed a rotted basement sill and cracked floor joist. He went out of his way to readjust his schedule because we were on a time crunch to get some work done prior to a home inspection. The work was completed in a timely manner and the cost was more than fair. I would recommend him to family and call him in the future for any other work that we might need done.

Marco and his team helped us to finish our basement. Even though it took little longer than expected, at the end we are happy with their service. Marco was very helpful, flexible and clearly explains every step in the process. His team already helped us on two other projects afterwards. We strongly recommend Bilmar Construction for your project.

I own a two family house, and the supposedly disconnected water heater for the rental unit began leaking. I called KOD based on an acquaintance’s recommendation. KOD came to look at the issue within the hour (on Columbus Day). They identified the problem: when we had new combination water heaters/boilers installed 9 months previously, the contractors had not disconnected this water heater, which was feeding the tenant’s washer. It was also venting to the chimney (which we had had bricked up since the new boilers don’t use it – not good). KOD disconnected the heater that evening. Ultimately we asked them to come the following day and re-route the plumbing, remove the water heater, and remove the two large (huge) cast-iron boilers (circa 1950) that had been left behind. They also identified a small gas leak in a different section of pipe (I had thought the smell was just basement air). Fast, knowledgeable, professional service – I highly recommend them.

I hired this company for a painting job for an apartment that we needed to put in good condition ASAP. They completely exceeded my expectations. I originally had doubts but they reassured me of their total dedication to customer satisfaction and they kept their word. Strongmen construction is made up of polite and lovely hardworking guys. Will highly recommend them. They will match your price and completion date, spot on. Will hire them again for a basement project pretty soon!

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.
