I had my interior trim and doors installed and painted. I had started the process a couple years ago, but was having difficulty finishing the project with 3 young boys and all there activities. I hired Adventure 25 to come out and give a bid and they could start the project in about a week. The first part of the process was to finish the trim work and rip all the basement trim out and a couple of doors that had not been replaced yet. The trim work was done in a couple of days. The painting was delayed because of rainy weather. This is where the stress begins. The prep work that comes before painting can be a lot of work and time consuming. There was little to no prep of the trim. Lots of missed nail holes, lots of missed caulking and the stuff that was done was very poor. I was told that this is high quality paint and it will cover in one coat. I know better. It can take several coats to make the white trim look good. There was paint all over the wood floors, tile in kitchen, paint on the cabinets, paint on my trees outside, paint on the concrete driveway, paint on my fire pit. There seemed to be no care in the world. Jaimie kept telling me that we are not painters. I understand that but my 5 year could of done better. It was supposed to be rolled and instead there was pain brush marks all the trim. The one painter said he thought it would look cute to but swirls with his brush on the top of all the door trims. I met with Jaimie 4 different times to which he said how do I make this right? I would go through things with him and come home at the end of the day to find more of a mess and continued poor quality work. I have never seen anything like this. He would say it would be fixed but I don't think he would watch over his workers and forget to tell them things. I am stressed out beyond believe as my hope was to have this finished to spend more time with my kids. Instead I have to redo most of it. I had another contractor come out and told me it would be about 10 thousand to fix. He never had seen such poor quality work. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. Very nice person but I think he was over his head and always in a rush, hence the poor quality work. Since I cant pay 10 thousand to someone to fix it, I am now looking at a year or so to fix my trim. Very frustrated and angry customer.

Kel assisted with taking out some kitchen cabinets and installing a dishwasher. He was very communicative from the first messages, and let us know in detail what to expect in terms of work and price. There were a few complications with the installation (plumber needed to be called due to old plumbing, unable to find the correct part on the day of installation), but Kel repeated that he did not want to go over the estimate; I believe he worked hard to keep the cost as low as he could while providing quality work. He is friendly and kind, and my husband and I will hire him again if there's a need. We've been pleased with the new dishwasher and with the small projects he completed with us around the house.

Chris is absolutely the best contractor that I've had the privilege to engage on any of my Projects (and there have been quite a few). The finish carpentry expertise that he provided for the floor trim, doors, windows (sashes and jambs) on my house was absolutely outstanding. It all looks brand new (or actually better than new). If you're looking for your project to be done right, on-time, and on-budget, then I can think of nobody better for you to contact than Chris. I give him my highest rating and endorsement and would definitely contact him again with any future carpentry needs.

We hired Nate to transform our unfinished, cluttered, basement into a functioning and comfortable family room. We appreciated the professionalism and communication that Nate provided. We worked together on a timeline, and discussed our budgeting needs, and Nate stuck to it. We now have a beautiful and functional family sitting room in our basement that was completed on time and was affordable. We are enjoying the extra space very much.

We had our basement finished and Tim came in and took a look around and gave us a firm quote. What we liked was how we were responsible for paying the costs of the supplies which was very transparent and allowed us to return unused supplies that we had left over. The quality of the work was great and the job was done faster than I thought. They cleaned up everyday and didn't leave a mess for us to take care of. He also recommended an electrician who we loved and has gone above and beyond anything we could have expected. The electrician replaced our old panel and set up all the wiring in the basement. He was even nice enough to help fix some old wiring issues. Tim and his crew were beyond exceptional and the straightforward way they dealt with any issues or delays was great. We would recommend Tim and his crew to anyone and hope to give referral business to them whenever we can.

I was referred to Beckman Remodeling through a friend and used them for my basement and bathroom remodel in a 1940s-era home. Corey and his team were able to turn a dated and drab basement into a contemporary, bright and and open floor plan that we have received many compliments on. Corey maintained his timeline, was attentive to our wishes and was direct and thorough in his change orders. We were always kept up-to-date if there were any setbacks or issues that came up that were not part of our initial conversation. Above all else, Corey is extremely trustworthy and has a great deal of integrity -- you can take his word when he says he'll do something. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a quality remodeler.

We hired Gordy to reinforce roof trusses, install a ceiling & raise the floor in our garage. He was very professional & did a wonderful job. He did the job quickly & was sure to answer any questions we had & explain what he was doing and why. If I need to hire a Carpenter again, I would go with Gordy.

We had a ugly unfinished basement with a furnace in the middle of the room. After speaking with multiple contractors we selected Dpenn construction. David was able to creat a floor plan to get that out of the way, now we have a beautiful basement (bedroom, washroom, and bathroom with a walk-in shower). David was easy to work with, honest with pricing and scope of work, and we feel like we got a great value out of the work that was done. Would highly recommend.

Working with Birch Builders was so easy. They understood how we used the space and what we were trying to accomplish (basement window project). They were very responsive, professional, and a great value. We have some more house remodeling projects to do and we know that we will call Birch Builders.

The crew showed up and had all the work done in only 2 Days. Kevin looked over the basement and determined we could go with a different solution that worked better for us. The only issue we had was our triple safe sump pump didn’t come in while the crew was here. However, once it had arrived, the crew was here the next day and had it installed. I’m going to love our new dry basement.

Replaced our old hot water heater with new - he was on time, careful about the light-colored carpet in our basement, fast, efficient, and he beat what Centerpoint Energy charges for the identical heater/installation by $300. We would hire again in a heartbeat!

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.  

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.

Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.
