Jeremy was very knowledgeable and helpful. He came over for a free estimate as our basement flooded bc our sump pump failed. He never sold us into something we didnt want to buy. We needed a new sump pump and wanted a battery back up. He didnt he research on a pump that would work well for us and said if we had any troubles again just to call him. The payment and billing process was very easy. Everything was sent by email and done on the iPad 🙂

We hired Gar to do a couple small projects for us (patch up areas of our basement, install/paint new baseboards in our bathroom). He did such a fantastic job we decided to hire him to turn our screened in porch into a 4 season porch. We have a 100 year old house so it was important that it match the rest of the house. Everyone else we spoke to said it wasn't possible or quoted us outrageous prices. Gar was eager and excited to work with us and had great ideas. He did a fantastic job, stayed within our budget, kept us updated on how the project was progressing and was so easy to work with. I would highly recommend him for any home projects you have!

    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.

    Over the past four years, Motor City has renovated our home, room to room. What started as an outdated house has transformed into a beautiful home with an all-new kitchen, bathrooms, mud room, and fully-finished basement. We couldn't be happier. MCB brought our ideas to life and offered many of their own, working together to complete each project in a very timely, professional manner. The work is beautiful and the employees are wonderful. Ask for Matt or Dave. They will take good care of you and your project! Thank you, MCB!

    I happened to notice water dripping down from my basement wall whenever I washed clothes and also an odd smell in the and around the kitchen and washing machine. Thumbtack was advertising their on my local weather channel, so I put my quote request on the website. Avery Construction responded and came to my home to check things out. It turned out to be a water line leak from a failed solder joint. They replaced the old leaking copper water pipes with PEX tubing with excellent results. Avery Construction also discovered mold growing in the basement. They treated it with a bleach solution and installed a dehumidifier to control the moisture in the air. The basement feels drier and smells much better. I was pleased with their work so I had them remodel my kitchen and rebuild my existing wobbly deck. They had this great idea of installing solar power light on the rail posts (see photos). They also painted the fascia, soffit, repaired rotten trim around an exterior door and saved me from another year of birds nesting in my gutters by removing poorly installed gutter guards. They also cleaned and painted the gutters and downspouts. I was very happy with the house repairs and renovations Avery Construction performed and would recommend them for any construction project you may have. I would certainly have them do a job at my home again.

    I hired Raymond to frame my new custom home. He also installed the windows, doors, cedar trim, deck, roofing and finished the basement. Top notch work. Great communication. Great guy. Would hire again.

    These guys have done just about everything for me: complete roof replacement, resealed my basement where I had a slight amount of water coming in, installed a water softener, installed and painted a new fence, auto repair work, heavy yard cleanup, and minor plumbing. If you have a project that is more than you can handle call these guys. The excellent quality of their work always outweighs their very fair prices.

    Tersigni and Sons was able to give me the basement that I have been planning on completing for years. The workmanship was excellent and the value for the job was better than any other contractor I worked with. Highly recommend, excellent job!

    Chris and his team at Aspen did our addition. It was a big project that included digging a basement, pouring a patio and front porch along with interior and exterior work. Chris and Aspen were professional, clean and helpful. The guys he works with are pros! They even went as far as going with my wife to help pick finishings. The project took a little longer than expected, however the price was very fair, and the work was quality. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience and would recommend Aspen Construction.

    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.
