Dominic was very knowledgeable and really educated me on the entire process that would occur in order to paint my house. He also had extensive knowledge of repairing and placing dry wall. Very friendly and sincere.

I hired Outdoor Living Solutions to build a retaining wall. This was a complicated project as it was in a backyard on a steep hill sloping down to a creek with very limited access. I dealt with Rick Miller, the owner, personally on this project and found it to be a great experience. Rick is candid and professional. He is honest and direct and emphasizes getting the best value for dollars spent, not suggesting any cheap shortcuts that a person will regret later. He is proactive with communication and updates and very competitive on price. I would recommend him to you for your project.

We hired Chris to work on a rental property for us. It started out as a deck project but we ended up adding other projects because of the need for the property to pass inspection. He not only helped us get the deck we wanted but also built a retaining wall and fixed our fence as well! Our municipality isn't the easiest to work with but Chris was very patient with inspectors and very flexible with us as we continued to add projects to his plate. It is great to know one person that can work on all kinds of projects and not have to call a bunch of different people for every little thing. We will definitely call Chris for any future fix-it or remodeling needs we have!!

Needed a garage demolished, got bids from a couple contractors, but Keith's was the only bid that included everything and could accommodate my request to keep some of the materials. I really appreciated that there were no surprise costs. The job took a little longer than they had initially estimated, but they got it done. I also appreciated that, even though I had asked for the garage to be completely demolished, they noticed that a lower portion was acting as a retaining wall, and recommended that I keep that piece to control erosion. They even gave me instructions on how to cap the remainder to make it look nice. All in all, great experience!

I had laminate flooring installed, and a large retaining wall installed behind my garage. Both jobs were done and finished very professionally. Cleanup was awesome too. I have recommended him to a couple of friends and they were impressed with his work also. He installed doors and hot water heater for friends. He is a jack of all trades and can do just about anything.

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.
