Ron and his guy installed two light fixtures and three ceiling fans for me. They did a great job! Were very responsive, on time, and the work was great. One of the ceiling fans needed further adjustment, so he came back and fixed it no problem. Our regular contractor wanted to charge four times what Ron did. I am thrilled to have such great work available at such a reasonable price. Thanks, Ron!

Santiago was AWESOME!!!! His quote was right in-line with what I expected to pay, and he contacted me quickly and actually came out to do the installation on a Sunday! He was on-time, very professional, and the work was high quality. I would highly recommend Santiago to anyone that needs work done. I can’t thank him enough and finally feel like I found a contractor that I can count on in the future! Thank you Santiago!!!!

This was our first time working with Jim's Carpentry. After the recent heavy rain and thunderstorms we had a piece of vinyl siding partially detach from our house, as well as a window valance that was completely removed. From start to finish, it could not have been a better experience. Jim was able to schedule an estimate the same day I posted on thumbtack. He was on time for the estimate and quoted us a very reasonable price. The price was so reasonable that we decided to have the shutters and the front door painted as well. When Jim noticed the hardware on the front door was rusted, he said he would replace it at no charge if we purchased the hardware...Nice!!! He was able to start the work the following day and again showed up exactly when he said he would. Jim took time and care to mare sure the work was done correctly and beautifully. One of my neighbors came over when Jim was working. We all chatted for a minute and Jim's demeanor is so relaxed, my neighbor was already practically hiring him for some work on his house. Jim finished the work the same day and it looks really really good. Jim cleaned up afterwards as well. My wife is proud that I hired a top notch contractor. I didn't want to admit that I got lucky with Jim contacting me for the job! Truthfully. I normally wouldn't bother leaving feedback on a service. This experience went so well that I would feel like a real jerk for not letting everyone know how much I appreciate the work Jim did. I certainly recommend him for your general contracting needs. Deck expansion in the future!!!

My father-in-law was a well-respected general contractor for the past 50 years, with specialties in masonry, stone work and carpentry. With my husband growing up in the business, he can immediately tell the difference between good and bad contractors. Ron is a very thorough, honest, and true craftsman who did a phenomenal job in remodeling the 1st and 2nd floor of my workshop. There aren’t too many contractors like him these days. Not only did our project surpass our expectations, he stayed on budget and on time. I would highly recommend Ron for you home remodeling needs.

The ease of getting quotes and scheduling the work. Communication with contractor was good and work was done well. Contractor was able to flex with my schedule. Better and clear information on daily rates would be good as drive time and such is being factored into the day. Expectations were based on physical time being there.

After reading all the positive reviews I felt confident I had found the right person to tackle my home repair needs; and I was not wrong. Jeremy was punctual, knowledgeable, courteous and accomplished. He conferred with me on various options to make repairs in unusual situations, came up with novel suggestions, some of which worked, and some of which didn't, but not until after he had tried (electrical issues created by another contractor). So all in all I was very satisfied with he and his colleague's work ethic, work product and expertise. They cleaned up after themselves and were very well priced, in my opinion. I will definitely hire A Squared again.

We hired JFItzgerald to do several jobs at once. Roofing, tearing down and rebuilding a deck, tearing down old fencing and putting in new fencing, vinyl siding repair are just some of the items. Everything was completed in a timely manner and looks great! Not only was John very professional, he provided great customer service and was a very tidy worker. There was never any trash or debris left lying around. We will definitely hire him again in the future and will recommend him to anyone looking for a General Contractor.

I highly recommend Bill to anyone seeking a general contractor. Several months ago, Bill reinforced our deck for a hot tub and reinforced an area under our living room for a large saltwater aquarium. He also tiled our floor and knocked down a wall. He was very professional and courteous. He got the job done in a timely manner and for a fair price. One of his workers accidentally broke a window, but Bill replaced it promptly and with no issues. We're planning to hire him again for future projects!

We had a great experience with Jordan from Carolina Building Pros! He’s bright, punctual, professional, tidy, respectful, knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, is great at what he does, and has a great eye for detail. As an interior designer myself who’s worked with many contractors in the past, a good eye for detail is hard to come by, and Jordan has got it! He renovated a few attic spaces into a fun playroom for our son, a storage space for media players, and a place to mount our TV. We are so happy with his work and would recommend/hire him again in a heartbeat!

Zuniga Construction has done two different jobs for us and we were thrilled with the results. The first one was removing and replacing a door and door facing. There is absolutely no evidence that the door/facing were replaced. The second job was 2 days of replacing facia on our roof. Sergio explained the process and materials used and it looks perfect! They are also very professional - providing an estimate (which was accurate) before the job was accepted and a printed receipt upon payment. My voicemail messages were returned promptly and Sergio was always on time. The one time he was delayed, he called to let us know. We really appreciate their punctuality, given our experience with previous contractors. We HIGHLY recommend Zuniga Construction!

Mr. Marshall is a great guy, understood the job we have and responded appropriately. He has a great understanding of building and design. Great to work with. We are using Mr. Marshall again in the near future to complete the project we have going on. It's not an easy project, we are cleaning up the mess another Builder/Contractor left me.

We hired Catalyst Construction after another contractor failed to finish a remodel. They came in and took over where he left off. They were able to right a very big wrong for us and for that, we will be forever grateful. They are a company that can be trusted and I highly recommend them.

Bill replied to our initial request to build a small portico roof over our front door. We had some ideas in mind, but appreciated Bill's honesty that some of our plans may not be best for our house. He worked with us to come up with a better plan, and we could not be happier with it. Since we were impressed with him, we asked him to do other repairs from our inspection report. Bill was hard working, honest and did a thorough job. We will definitely contact him again if needs arise!

I called several contractors (12 to be exact) and received a call-back from eight, one being AMC Contractoring. Carlos, the owner was professional, prompt and thorough; he scheduled someone out to assess the work within a day and showed up himself for most of the work on every day of the project. We hired AMC to get our house ready for sale and Carols respected our budget and event found additional ways for us to save money and make the project better. We had to make a small change to how we wanted to repair some damage, and Carols quickly amended our quote with no delay to the start of the work. I noticed later that some paint in a room looked off and Carlos came out the same day to repaint the room. The thing is, I was mistaken and the room was not part of the original project. Carlos laughed it off and said that it was both of our mistakes and didn't even charge us for the extra room. I've never met a contractor who was willing to build-up a relationship rather than build-up an invoice. For that reason AMC is now working on a project to get my monther's house ready for sale as I write this review. Even better, AMC's cost was competitive (no hidden fees, as was the case with several of the other quotes) and the quality of the work was excellent. We will definitely use AMC's services again in the future.

      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.
