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!

This was without a doubt one of the best experiences I've had with a contractor. I had work done to remove a large fallen tree branch and repair of the fence that it crashed through, as well as deck repair including replacing a rotting deck post. Jaime got back to me almost immediately after my thumbtack request, came out the next day for an estimate, and completed all the work a few days after that. He was very easy to work with and he even fixed a few other things I noticed while he was there working. I would highly recommend him for your job.

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!!!

Rob Early and his guys did an excellent job installing our privacy fence and extending an existing fence on our property. He listened to our needs (keeping our persistent dogs in the fence!) and frequently asked for our input during the project. Rob was timely and finished the project before we even needed it completed. I recommend him to anyone looking for a contractor in the triangle area!

They follow through with their quality of work. We had tiles repaired and some staff must have stepped on them messing them up overnight. Chris returned free of charge to fix them again and make sure my client was happy. We will use them again thank you

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!

Dave and his crew did window repairs, framing repairs, framed my two story fireplace and builtins, framed my master bedroom fireplace and moved a pantry in my kitchen. He is very professional and did an awesome job. Couldn't be happier with how things turned out. He is also very competitive on pricing. Can't wait to start the next project with his team!

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.

We've been working with Mr. Coble for almost a year on a series of projects, big and small (from replacing rotten framing to replacing windows to repairing shingles and more). He has been professional, communicative, and the work has been completed on time and professionally done. It's been a pleasure and we plan to continue to work with him as projects come up.

We had a deck extended and a tri room painted by Rejuvenate Restorations & co. Stephen was very professional and honest. He came to the job with a contract to sign for both jobs, which was extremely important to us. He was very attentive with our wants and needs for both projects. We will be using him again for a few other projects this year!

Being a repeat customer says it all. When we wanted to put a Trellis/Pergola on an existing deck the first person I called was Tovar Construction. Troy constructed the original deck and we worked with him to add the Trellis/Pergola to the deck and architecturally blend it in so it does not look like an afterthought. Troy hit this one out of the park! I was blown away by the detail of their exceptional craftsmanship. Not only that, but they started when they said they would start and finished when they said they would finish. They cleaned up before they left. Troy’s prices may be slightly higher than the 2 guys in a white unmarked van but you will not get the top-notch quality and detail you get from Tovar Construction. Just like anything in life, you get what you pay for. I highly recommend Tovar Construction Inc.

Justin assessed our old deck and found the framing to be solid. This saved time and money. The demo of the old deck was completed quickly and without damage to our home or surrounding structures. Justin was patient with our many ideas and thoughts we worked with him in planning out the new deck. He was creative in adding details that would set our new deck apart from the typical standard decks out there (and without adding extra cost). Justin takes great pride in his work, and he made sure we were pleased each step of the way. Justin was also very tidy in cleaning up after a day's work. We are continuously receiving compliments on his masterpiece! Thank you SO much Justin!!

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.
