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

Ed and the guys came to my house to check out my porch that needed to be painted. While they were there I showed Ed a couple more projects I had (painting the basement and power washing/painting my garage). Ed and the guys at ER took on all three jobs and scheduled promptly. They showed up the next available day and got right to work. They continued to work on each portion of the job until I was satisfied and gave me a very fair price. I would recommend them and wouldn’t hesitate to call for their services again. Good job guys and thanks.

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!

Excellent work from Ely and Daniel and crew! They built a new deck on time and within budget. Really had a great experience working with them throughout. They took care of all the permits and inspections, and adjusted to the changes that arose during the building without any issues. Can't recommend them enough.

Crew came in did a great job. Roofing assuming done well, is somewhat of a commodity and very price driven. Mike quoted a very fair price. Crew was courteous. Large container stayed in my driveway a little longer than necessary; however, I made use of that by purching my garage of junk.

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.

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.

Stan and his team were initially hired to replace and install gutters. He was able to point out additional issues that did need to be addressed including a weakened upper deck, fascia boards, and a door thresh hold. He always provided a written estimate and kept in good communications regarding all work to be done. His team cleaned up daily, were courteous and helpful. As this is an older house built in 1865, it will always need some repairs, so I will likely have him do additional work in the future. Thanks Stan.

We hired Ransford to put a deck on the back of our house. Ransford was a pleasure to work with. He met with us to initially get our thoughts on our project and immediately sketched up a rough view of the deck attached to the house and a detailed breakdown of the work that was needed including plans, inspections, materials and removal of old stairs. We made some modifications and drew up an agreement. We made one change to the project after we started which was to make the deck wider. Ransford was able to accomodate us and work with our surveyor and the town of Needham to amend the plans. He and his crew worked through some extremely hot days and built our deck quickly and professionally. We were thrilled with his attention to detail and how much work he put in to building a strong foundation and framing. He also made some suggestions on the layout of the pattern on the decking which we really appreciate. We love the deck. We would not hesitate to recommend Ransford to anyone who asks and we have already made plans to have him do other work on our house.

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.

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.
