Harry works. No standing idle for this guy. He does a good, honest job for a better than reasonable price. Have had him return several times now for small jobs which have been done to satisfaction. He is also quite pleasant to deal with.

Jorge and Mayra and the entire crew did a truly excellent job taking down a horrible ceiling which had been patched miserably from water damage (burst pipes in the past, before I bought the house). They took out everything including all the old insulation and replaced it with new, then new drywall - taped to perfection. Next they patched places on the walls which were done poorly and painted everywhere - even the cement floor (this is a walk-in basement). You will not find a place where one color goes into another color area, the edges are so sharply done. I will add pictures later if I can. Do not be deterred by language -- Spanish/English. There is always someone on site with whom you can communicate. If you think the cost is just a little high, you are asking for less for the best outcome. Splendid work!!!

Ralph was very professional. He listened to what I wanted to get done and did the work in a timely manner. I had him do a few handyman type projects...put up a clothes bar in a closet, fix a couple of sliding doors that weren't working right, clean out the gutters and downspouts and then repaired some of the downspouts and attached them to the house properly. He also filled in a crack in the foundation. I'm very happy with the work and he's a pleasant person as well. I have no complaints at all.

For U Builders replaced 7 basement windows for us. The introduction/quote visit was excellent. Really nice folks! Follow up was good. Brandon stayed on top of our order and kept us informed. Install was great. Leon tailored the trim to the space so it wasn't a "one size fits all" install. Very much appreciate that - and they were done earlier in the day than we expected. This would be a 5 star review if the time between the initial appointment and the installation hadn't been over 6 weeks. We understand the windows come from PA, and there was the Thanksgiving holiday in there, but that's twice as long as unexpected/were told.

We had an incident where one of our basement windows had broken. Victor came to the house the next day to measure the three windows for replacement (we decided now was the time to replace them all). That evening we had an estimate emailed to us, and the pricing was good. Victor ordered the windows, and the day they came in he called to schedule installation for the next day. He was on time, quick, and the work is very high quality. After installation he walked us through opening the windows, showing the completed work, and gave us recommendations regarding the rain/snow covers we had over the windows. We have plans for the basement which includes finishing it, update flooring, etc and plan to work with Victor for that as well.

John came to my house and removed a plethora of "junk" out of the basement. He and his coworker worked countinuously for hours. They were prompt. Their work was neat. They were friendly and professional. Their price was very fair. I would highly recommend them. Thank you~Barb

I'm a divorced working mother with not a lot of time. I was having the hardest time finding someone to do some small jobs around my house. I contacted John and he called me back right away. He showed up when he said he was and did everything he committed to do. He built a cedar closet in my basement, installed a ceiling fan in my bathroom and even cleaned the mold that was on my ceiling which by the way over the last 4 months has not come back! He also cleaned out my garage, organized my things and built shelves. I highly recommend John. His rates are reasonable and he is extremely reliable! You won't be sorry.. Cathy Glastonbury, CT

Frank did a beautiful job on our kitchen. It's a big room which included a bathroom and basement landing, and the limestone we chose was expensive and not something we were sure that everyone could work with. Additionally, our application in our 75 year old house was "complicated." After our first meeting with Frank we were sure that he had the expertise and knowledge to handle all the challenges. We were correct. He was meticulous, worked neatly, kept us informed and rolled with the changes with which our house surprised us. He does beautiful work, and is pleasant t have in your home.

Andy and Wanda have done several jobs for me over the last several years including new roof, ceiling repairs, new bathroom floor, repair of foundation cracks that were causing basement flooding, and a new waterproof basement floor. I love my pretty new roof and floors. My basement has not leaked since the repairs. Andy and Wanda were very professional and timely. They never left unfinished work to go to another job. They stayed until it was finished. And they cleaned everything up when they were finished. You can't go wrong with these guys. They know what they are doing and the price is right.

I wanted to remodel my basement, had a few ideas here and there. That'd it. D&B Home Improvement came in and made my experience very easy, they showed me samples of great laminate flooring for a or ice that fit my budget. They had materials bought the same day the contract got signed by both parties, and got the ball rolling all on the start date that the contract stated. They were very proffessional. Took there job seriously. To be honest, Dave and his crew didn't leave until what he said he was going to do., actually happened, and looked perfect! very pleased and he is now my go to handymen.

My experience with Twin Renovation was outstanding. They finished my basement and this project was completed about 2 weeks ago, so while I can't comment on the long-term lasting results, and immediate finished product is exactly what I was looking for. It was a relatively simple job - I just wanted the concrete walls nicely finished in a cost-effective way and for the existing tile floor to be covered in carpet. Right off the bat even before coming to see the project, Vinnie spent time with me carefully listening to my ideas and questions, and giving me advice about what would work best for my situation. Quotes I got from other contractors only included moisture protection, framing with furring strips, and drywall, and were still astoundingly high even without the flooring. Vinnie's quote was significantly under every other quote I got and included all those things plus the carpeting, painting the walls, framing out the windows, and installing a nice baseboard and window trim. Vinnie and his team were all very friendly, approachable, and accommodating, which helped put me at ease because this was the first home renovation project I had ever attempted and I wasn't confident in how to walk through the process. Vinnie communicated well and kept me well-informed every step of the way, and they ultimately finished the entire project in under a week while staying true to the original price quoted. At the end they told me that if I noticed any problems or issues that I should just call them and they'd come back to fix it. I also really appreciated their honesty because at the last-minute I asked if they could carpet the stairway as well and Vinnie said that his carpeting specialist was not available for a while. He said that the person doing the work was proficient in carpeting flat flooring but was not proficient in stairways, and he would prefer to be honest rather than potentially do a sub-par job on something. I think sometimes people can be greedy and want to find any way to inflate prices and make an extra buck, and that is just not how Twin Renovation does business. I got a fair price for high quality work and I will definitely be using them again and recommending them to anyone I know! Thank you!

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.
