BETTER THAN OUTSTANDING!!!!! Benito trimmed all of my bushes and cleaned the gutters on my house and garage. He took the branches and leaves with him, so helpful. He showed up on time, this last Sunday, did the work in record time with much expertise and knowledge. He is a business man, a professional and DEFINITELY the best landscaper I have ever used. He deserves TEN STARS!!!!! Dian Love Ypsilanti, MI

I recently purchased a 100 year old home in need of major electrical upgrades. New to the area, I had gotten several quotes from several reputable electricians, but Nick stood out. Price and Services offered were hard to beat. Increase AMP's to the house, rewire entire garage, replace service panel, the list goes on. I consider myself handy, but Nick puts my knowledge and handy work to shame. He offers much more than just electrical services, garage door motor install, TV's "professionally" hung, 220v outlets run, kitchen & bath and more. I would reccomend him and his team for just about any project.

Jim and his crew are very professional and provide quality work. I had my garage and basement wired by Jim, and it turned out wonderful... Also very happy with the trim work, and bonus room they built in my basement. Couldn't be happier, and would highly recommend to my own family and friends. A++

The best builder-handyman-perfectionist in the area. Honest, smart, and caring, he really is the best combination possible. We have had Matt do multiple projects for us-assembling a shed, finishing a basement, renovating a bathroom, and even building a treehouse with a raised deck in the sky! Totally excellent work!!!

John was able to do a quick turn around job to help me get our house ready for a graduation party. He painted our garage and window trims in our house as well as repair and paint our, weather damaged, front door. He was a real pleasure to work with!

I have had Justin work on many different projects throughout my home and would hire him again in a second. He has re-roofed our home, installed cabinets and crown molding in our kitchen, and updated the electrical panel in our home with added power to our garage. Very professional and excellent work.

We had a complex job, with our porch leaking through the wall of our garage requiring multiple solutions both inside and outside. Working with Vini was fantastic, he thoroughly investigated the issue and worked collaboratively with both myself and other contractors to develop an effective, solid solution. As well as responding to challenges found along the way during excavation. The quote provided was very detailed and comprehensive, and was adhered to. We are happy with the result and to this point have had no further issues with water penetration. I would recommend Vini and his company to anyone.

Costa Pro LLC is a top notch company. The wind storm in march did a number on my roof, not only did they strip the old roof off, they replaced my fascia and replaced the roof, all in one day. I got quotes from other companies, but Costa Pro had the most affordable prices and a warranty that lasts double everyone else's. The exterior of my home was in need of repair as well, and Costa Pro LLC was up for the task. They put in new vinyl soffits, and the opening around my garage door. Costa Pro also painted the exterior and trim of my house, and replaced my leaking gutters. My house went from the worst on my street, to the best. I have gotten nothing but compliments from all my neighbors. I can't thank Will and everyone else at Costa Pro LLC enough for everything they did for me and my family. I strongly recommend Costa Pro LLC.

My husband and I hired George and his company to paint our farmhouse in 2010. The original farmhouse was built in 1900, the large addition was added in 1999. It was an extensive job consisting of scraping and sanding the existing paint, repair of rotting wood, priming and painting. George showed up on time every day with his crew, ready to work. We hired George and Company the following year to paint the garage/carriage house. It was the same thorough job with the same work ethic. He also painted the old granary shed and play shed on our property. In 2013 he power washed and stained the 5 decks/porches at the farmhouse. George made it a point to bring to our attention items that could be potential problems with the house. He would repair those items for us during the painting process, he also corrected some items on his own. His work crew was polite and they prepped the area prior to painting so there was not a mess. Because this was all outside work, George watched the forecast and would tell me what days they would be working. If it was a rainy week, they would work on the weekend so the job could be completed in a timely manner.

I was looking for a small section of concrete driveway to be replaced for fear of damage being done to my garage foundation. Steve called me within an hour of my initial quote submission on Thumbtack, even though he was on vacation. When the driveway was clear of snow, he came right out to do a detailed quote. The first day the weather was good enough to allow the job, he was out here working on it. The finish quality is excellent and it was done in one day. My only regret is I couldn't afford to have the whole driveway done.

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.
