I needed some outlets installed in my unfinished basement. Jerry was able to come out the next day to complete the install and provide excellent advise for care and maintenance. He also fixed a problem with the circuit breaker while he was here. Quick and professional. Will hire again for any handyman needs.

The Innovative Team helped me out when I needed it the most. My Finished Basement flooded from a failed sump pump. Innovative came out that day and immediately started drying the basement out so that everything was not a complete loss. Their experience & their inventory of equipment allowed them to develop a Cost Competitive Plan to best suit me. THEY SAVED MY BASEMENT!! Thank you Innovative Cleaning & Restoration. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!

JOSH is the BEST! He is very prompt, thoughtful and responsive. He anticipates needs even before you ask. I had him assist me in cleaning out my basement and man, there was a lot of stuff. He was very proactive in trying to help me move things to storage and he is a trustworthy guy. I honestly can't say there is anything more that I could have hoped for from a person. He has all the tools necessary mixed with his positive energy makes him an all around great person to work with even when in a pinch! If you need someone, I would highly recommend him :)

We were looking for a professional contractor who could build/remodel bathroom in my basement. Troy was very helpful in explaining the process and cost efficient. He totally built the bathroom from the rough ins to the finish product. He was respectful, honest, on time, hardworking and went out of his way to make sure we were totally satisfied with the overall projects. We have referred him to several people who need/needed home improvements done. There are pictures of the project on both of his websites. We will always use him for any of our home improvements or repairs in the future.

Tim and his crew are excellent craftsman and have a variety of Home Renovation skills. I had a basement remodel that I had started and needed them to drywall, mud, tape and paint. It looks awesome. Seeing how well they did that, I asked Tim to tile the bathroom I was building (shower and floor). I couldn't be happier. I look to use them on any home project that they wish to do.

I had a remodeling project to completely refinish my kitchen, 2 bathrooms and basement. B&C Contracting was 1 of 5 quotes that I received. They were extremely professional being that they didn't just simply give me a random estimate but they came and looked at everything I was interested in remodeling. Overall, they responded with an estimate the same day and I decided to hire them. They were able to take out what was there prior, take out a few walls, add new lighting areas in my ceiling, put in cabinets, countertops and appliances, put up drywall, re pour concrete, put in my flooring, paint and do general carpentry. They also installed a few new windows and doors. The job was finished in a couple weeks and the update looks perfect. We will eventually add an additional garage and rehire B&C Contracting Specialist to do this project as well.

Rick was hired to finish out our basement and did a great job. Everyone was very courteous, responsive to our questions and concerns, and performed quality work. Rick was helpful in finding options to fit within our budget. They finished on time, on budget, and cleaned up afterwards. The final project turned out great and I would recommend Rick and his team to others.

Jeff and his assistant were extremely nice and easy to work with. They were quick and provided somewhat of an emergency service at a reasonable price. Basically had an egress window drain that wasn't working properly and leaking into our basement. Jeff dug out the old well, installed a new one, dug a large trench and installed two new drains. It took them less than 8 hours, I was super impressed.

We had a fair amount of water coming into our basement right after we bought our house. Turned out we needed weeping holes drilled in our walls, a canal system, and a sump pump. Once those items were taken care of, not a drop of water seeped in. We are extremely happy with the work, and feel confident because of the lifetime guarantee. Hire these guys, they are thorough.

Jesse came and did an amazing job fixing an old contractors awful job in our basement. He created two new corners on our wall, fixed another corner, refinished a damaged wall, taped and mudded a different portion of wall, and matched texture on our ceiling after damage. He gave us a great quote for the job, ended up taking more time than originally quoted (without charging us for it!) to make sure it was dry for paint, was courteous of our home, and was meticulous in fixing small details. We would recommend him to anyone needing work done in their home! Thanks JP Watson Contracting for making our space something we can enjoy and be proud of!

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.
