We moved into a two-bedroom house and our designer recommended EBRR as a general contractor for our major renovation projects. Luis, the project manager, came in, listened to all our needs and specificity notated our request. We had a complete estimate for everything within only a few days including cost and time frames. Barry and EBRR was able to accommodate with all architect's drawings, all subcontractors and permits. The work was done on time and within budget, even with the inevitable surprises that always come up during renovation. They were punctual, always respectful and very neat.

I needed two very large pieces of furniture moved out of my basement in preparation for remodeling. Familybiz arrived right on time, worked quickly, were extremely accommodating and at the best price! I was so pleased, I have already hired them for much of the basement renovation.

Jennri and his team (and he really has a team, each who specialize) did an amazing job for us, completing a total house renovation that was abandoned half way through. They were thorough, made good suggestions, worked quickly, and offered very fair prices. They did electrical work, tiling, drywall, painting, and installation of appliances and cabinets. They did really great work - I've already recommended him several times! We also hired his cleaning services to clean our (really really gross) old house before we sold it and they left it totally spotless (including the oven!!) for a great price. We will definitely continue to hire him for anything that comes up!

As I write this review, my husband and I have added additional projects in our house to be completed. We moved into our home a year ago and it needs a lot of cosmetic and appliance upgrades. The work is done professionally and correctly. If you have a concern, Jose will address your concerns and even give you ideas if your stuck on what to do. He knows what he’s talking about and will do all he can to work around your budget. **Be upfront and realistic in regards to the work you need done and he will be more than reasonable with pricing. All the workers are friendly and respectful. They work non-stop, only stopping for a lunch break. While working, some of the workers engaged with my kids and they were really excited. They are very timely and punctual. If they say they will be at your house at 6am, they are waiting in their cars at 5:50a waiting to knock on your door at 6. Overall, I would hire Brandon Contractors again and highly recommend to anyone in need of house repairs/remodeling services. The prices are reasonable and the work completed will not disappoint you!

Gio was awesome. He was great at communicating when I submitted my request for an estimate, came out to the house to give an estimate quickly, and his estimate was accurate (no surprise charges). The work was done quickly and was done very well. Gio checked with us on important decisions and adjusted based on our feedback. We are thrilled with the new Trex decking and they also pressure washed and sealed the rest of the wood parts of the deck and it looks brand new. We would definitely work with gios builders again for future work we have planned for our house (kitchen renovation in a couple of years) and anything else that comes up.

My wife and I hired Paul to paint our basement, kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and living room before we moved in to our new home. We are extremely pleased with the service provided and it was all done at a very reasonable price. Paul was very personable, punctual and responsive during the whole process. We have a few more rooms left in our home and if we were to get them painted, we would not hesitate to contact Paul for the job!

After we moved into our newly renovated home, we found out we had a HUGE leak in our basement. The leak was causing mold on the entire basement and dry walls. Our contractor hired someone to do the waterproofing during the renovation however we quickly realized we had to call a professional. We found MJ HOMES SERVICES & FLOOD RESTORATION on the internet. We called about 5 different companies and had MJ HOME SERVICES be the only ones that showed up on time (the same day we called). Their quote was affordable than the other quotes however it was worth every dime. MJ HOMES employees were extremely knowledgeable. They immediately found the issue and started working within 2 days. The work was both internal and external. Workers showed up at 8am and left at 7pm. They were quiet and worked clean. In addition, they had to dig in our basement and replace drywall. We didn't even feel we had construction in the house. The basement is dry and we are extremely happy.

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

We actually decided not to use American's service for this time around, but I want to give them a good review for their time and effort in explaining contracting to us as first-timers remodeling a basement. Mike and Richard were very knowledgeable and accommodating. I really like Mike's vision of what he could do with the basements, the options he provided, and his suggestions. It was a tough choice and while someone else fit us better in the end, I still recommend their service and may use them myself one day. I know this wont be my last project!

I wanted to finish a large basement with a gym and dance room. Daniel and his Black Diamond team are all professional craftsmen and completed the entire basement beyond my expectations. Communication is excellent, walking you through the daily activities, inspecting the work, and making sure you know what the plan is for the next day. Would definitely use Black Diamond again.

Mike and team did a fantastic job today. I requested for a junk removal service initially. When I spoke to Mike over the phone, I explained to him what other thing I wanted to get done to see if his team could offer me a one stop shop. Mike was able to give me a quote rightaway without hesitant. Mike was extremely well communicated on pricing, arrival time and estimated time for completion. We maintain communication prior to the day of the job and I was impress with how responsive and polite Mike was. I took pictures of the stuff I had and he was really confident that him and his team can do all of it in one trip. My husband and I was skeptic at first but we decided to give Mike and his team a try. We want to respect our contractor’s time as well as our time. We already did all the initial work and move our stuff to the garage and front door, making it easy for just to lift everything into the trunk. Mike didn’t ask us to, but we just renovated our floors and re-painted our walls so we didn’t want the moving of stuff up and down the stairs to stratch any of our new flooring and walls. Upon arrival, the team got to work right-away. The inspection of the junk was about 5 minutes, then they just started breaking the furnitures into smaller, packable pieces for the truck. I didn’t even know they can do that. The team load the junk in our entire garage, the mattresses, and finished the caulking service I asked for initially in an hour and half. Total trip for moving our mattresses to another location and loading the truck full of junk takes about 3 hours. That was pretty impressive. They were all included in the price quoted upfront. Note that I specifically described what I wanted done and distance travel prior to the day of the job. I’ve used many movers and haulers in the past and I wasn’t happy with the results. This was why I always try to look for a better team that I could trust. Thanks to Mike and his team, now we know who to call for our future projects. Will definitely use their service again.

Approximate Cost: $45,000.00 Description Of Work: Total remodel of third floor master bath, small addition and remodel of second floor bath to add shower, moving laundry from basement to second floor, painting, general repairs, structural repairs. Member Comments: Larry is a character! When we first started asking contractors about our renovation project, everyone was excited and optimistic . . . until they brought out a tape measure. We have a tiny downtown rowhouse and as it turns out there was almost no way to fit what we wanted (a second shower and laundry room) into the footprint of the house. Larry was the only one we talked to who could figure out a creative (our CHAP rep said "innovative") way to do what we wanted to do within our price constraints. Larry listened to our needs and budget and really made it work. And we love our remodeled house! The job was not perfectly "seamless." There were little details that went unnoticed without a few reminders, and a couple of things that either needed to be fixed or redone. As with any contract, it is very very important to be clear up front on the scope of work and budget for fixtures, etc. or you may end up in a Home Depot in the middle of the night looking for the only faucet in your range. And paperwork is not Larry's forte, so if you are doing something like a 203k prepare for some emails for documents, etc. However, in the end I can say that Larry took on and worked with us through a very complicated job, complete with 203k delays, complex permitting, surprise structural repairs, and various long standing leaks. Larry's crew was up well into the night getting the job done so we could move back in on time, and returned to fix an ongoing gutter leak until it was right. The work is beautiful and really adds to the value and functionality of our house. And Larry was very responsive to our cost constraints and concerns, and returned texts and emails promptly. And I truly appreciate all of the work that he did for us to ensure that we were able to meet a tight budget for a lovely home.

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.
