We inherited our house from my parents and I was looking for ideas and ways to bring it up to todays' standards and styles. I requested NWT Services to come out and look over our home to give us their thoughts on ideas to make our home, our home! The technicians not only presented us with some good ideas, but when they put it all into working perspective we were blown away! We had them finish our basement, remodel our kitchen and remodel our bathrooms, and also some general items in rest of home. I have dealt with contractors in the past, but Nick and his company are different. By that, they are of the caring nature, they get the job done, are clean, punctual, professional, honest and also are not expensive. They treated us and our home with respect. These are things that are lost amongst many contractors. I could tell that whoever taught them their line of work, taught them the right way. I would highly recommend for any project, large or small. We will always call them back for anything we need done.

John was heaven sent! I hired him to do some deck that lead on to painting my house too completely renovating my basement. He is honest, trustworthy, reasonable and clean. I will be looking forward for him to an other project for me in the spring. I Certainly recommend him! You will not be disappointed, a 10 all the way!

This contractor removed rotten wood from around my porch, stopped an active leak into my basement, replaced water damaged wood inside the basement, and replaced wood around the porch with water resistant boards. The job was completed thoroughly and professionally in 3 days. Efficient, professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and hard-working.

We are so happy we found Charles Moon on Thumbtack! He installed a ceiling fan in a bedroom, ran cable wires through the wall from the basement to the first floor and repaired two lights in the basement that had stopped working. Charles was very professional, showed great care for our house and the projects he worked on for us, and charged us a very fair price for his services. We would definitely hire Charles again! We are already making a list :-)

Job was to finish a 15 x 26 portion of my basement with insulation, framing, drywall, molding, electrical, suspended ceiling, lighting, hang two doors and floor paint. Strengths included continuous service, responsiveness to most requests, and completing on budget. Weaknesses included poor quality of suspended ceiling installation, doors binding requiring planing by owner, and lack of response to voice mail messages. Also the job was speced at about 10 days, but took about 15 days due to ceiling difficulties. Overall, The company was easy to work with and generally capable. The owners specific work was well done, but some quality issues existed with the support workers. Several phone calls requesting information were not returned, including calls related to work that was not completed. The cost was quite reasonable, however I will have to redo some items primarily the ceiling due to sloppy tile cuts and floor paint that was not adequately prepped. I would consider hiring the company for future work, but would request rework if quality issues existed.

Rodgers was an absolute pleasure to work with! He went above and beyond to accommodate my many (unusual) requests with very short notice. I was having a house warming party on a Saturday night, and he came late Friday night after driving home from a conference in Chicago to get started on my projects, and continued working all day Saturday up until a couple hours before the party. From perfectly hanging my wedding canvases in a beautiful wall gallery to assembling a bed to hanging a cool hammock swing and installing a light fixture in my basement, he truly exceeded my expectations. I was creating a bohemian chic lounge in my basement, and I love the way Rodgers hung the chain of the light fixture to fit the aesthetic. He is professinal, precise, personable and great at what he does. I highly recommend Rodgers for all your handyman needs! Try not to be a procrastinator like me and give him advanced notice to accommodate your requests within his schedule!! Thank you, Rodgers!!

Alex was great. Prompt, honest and efficient. He refinished our basement for us; we wanted a “practical” play and work out space and he respected that (didn’t try to talk us into what we didn’t need). Would use him again and highly recommend him.

Louie finished all the final trim work and door painting in my basement. I am extremely particular when it comes to detail work; he listened closely to what I wanted, took a ton of care to be neat and clean with every task, and did very good work. He is a licensed pro and acts that way from initial contact to finishing his work. I would definitely hire again and also recommend to others.

    We needed work done and in a timely manner. We were finishing our basement and needed a bar installed, a bathroom with tile and ceilings done to finish this. Also some special lighting. Everything turned out so beautifully. We could not be more happy with the finished product and would definitely recommend this company. I felt the pricing quoted for the quality and craftsmanship I was looking for was fair and reasonable. I will use this company again!

    As a hardwood flooring contractor, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Paul for over 10 years. He is a creative and inventive thinker, and it shows in his work. His remodels, including kitchens, bathrooms and basements, as well as a 2nd floor redesign that comes to mind, are all stand-outs. He is responsive in communication too which makes it easy to recommend him to our friends and family. My wife, a Realtor, recommends him to her clients as well.

    Bill built a new support beam in our basement, and removed the temporary wall that has been holding up the main floor of our house for some time. He also re-built some of the concrete block wall that began crumbling, mortared it back together and re-supported all of the compromised areas. He even removed hidden debris from someone else's unfinished job without being asked to. In my opinion, Bill went above and beyond and he was confident and relaxed about the whole job, which makes such a huge difference to me.

    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.
