Chris was great to work with on our electrical project. He hard- wired 3 lights for us and changed several existing ceiling fans and light fixtures . I highly recommend Sniper Construction!! We'll be using him again.

A contractor who arrives as promised, gives a fair and reasonable estimate, then completes work quickly and efficiently is very rare. Nick Gillaspie is that contractor. At my house he repaired and stained a deck, changed out a ceiling fan, hung ceiling medallions, changed chandelier in foyer and hung tapestry and huge wall hanging and left all areas in pristine condition. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any project he wants to tackle.

Bob Blake did an “attic build-out” for us in our new home, including framing and installing a custom sized door and installing some plywood flooring in the attic. Bob and a helper did a fine job – he was reliable, skilled, and conscientious. When there were a couple of adjustments to be made to complete the job, Bob made sure that they were accomplished in a timely way, to our satisfaction. We found Bob’s price to be better than most, and we are very pleased with the results. I would gladly hire him again for home improvement or repair.

Ben was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end! We had purchased a home and had the walls, ceiling, trim, doors and mantle painted in the entry way, kitchen, living rm, dining rm, hallway and main bath. His crew did an excellent job on patching the walls first, painting and clean up. The crew was professional and courteous and went above and beyond with a leak in the bathroom sink (That was not on the job list). Andy noticed the pipe under the sink was leaking and went out to his truck to get teflon tape to make the repair and advised us that that would help stop the leak but to replace the p trap. In this day and age it is hard to come by contractors that do the job they are hired for let alone go above and beyond…But that’s just what Ben’s crew did!! The house looks amazing and it was seamless, stress free and done on time! Ben communicates through the entire process and makes you feel like you are his only customer. We also had all the carpets cleaned and they look beautiful! I will definitely be hiring Ben again for other projects and have already recommended him to friends and relatives. Buying a home and doing renovations can be very stressful and Ben made it completely stress free. Hire Ben and his crew and you will not be disappointed!!

Jonathan and his crew did an outstanding job on a fairly complex wall removal and structural support project. Jonathan himself was very professional, responsive and easy to work with. The guys on his crew were knowledgeable, polite and hard working. Pricing was reasonable. The most impressive part was how quickly they got the work done. The job was quoted by other contractors to take at least 2 weeks and Salazar Express got it completely done and cleaned up in 3 days. I will definitely hire them in the future for other remodel jobs on my rental houses.

James Cleaning Service did an awesome job on my rental house turnaround - trash-out, deep cleaning, painting and power washing. The appliances, tubs/showers and outside of the house looked new when they were done. James is very easy to work with, kept me well informed of the progress and was always available by phone. They take a personal pride in their work and very knowledgeable in their field. They go above and beyond what they promise and always seemed to exceed my expectations. All at a reasonable price. This was not your typical contractor experience. I would highly recommend James Cleaning Service to anyone and will definitely use them again.

Eric and his crew at Inkwood were great to work with. We had a kitchen remodel that involved removing load bearing walls and installing a steel I beam, as well as framing a new mudroom and laundry room. They showed up on time, worked hard, completed the project ahead of the estimated time frame, and followed through with any questions or concerns. They also made sure the job site was tidy at the end of each day, and ensured a solid barrier was in place between the work site and living quarters to keep the dust out. The job was permitted and passed inspection with no problems. We would definitely recommend them for any carpentry work, and will likely hire them again in the future. Thank you Inkwood!

They were able to do an install of both the front door and back French doors, with having to re-build the framing around the back door (due to bad work by the folks that installed the old door) in one day. The work looks awesome and they were great to work with the entire time.

Rick went above and beyond the initial job and was able to do some electrical and drywall work that I definitely needed, I would've had to call at least one other contractor to work on the electric so Rick definitely saved me some time/money!

Bryan did a beautiful job moving the bathtub and completing my shower tile where another contractor had left me in the lurch with shoddy work. Bryan also discovered and repaired a badly leaking drain that several others had missed. He even worked through the weekend because he knew I had been without a useable shower for quite some time. Thanks Bryan!

Paul and PJ built a 1700 square foot garage for us. The quality of the work is unsurpassed. They were very quick to get the quote back and agree to. They stayed under budget. The garage was in the dry so that we could start working on the inside of it within 2 months from starting. They were super professional . They arrived early every morning and worked until the job was complete. Their subcontractors for equally as professional. Did great work. We couldn't be happier!

We hired Mitcho Contractors to help us with refinishing a wood floor and replacing a linoleum floor. He provided us with people who were very experienced. However, before we had the work done my sister and I realized that the floors we had in the 70 year old house were okay after we had them properly cleaned and did not need to have the wooden floors refinished or the other floor replaced. We would recommend Mitchco for others in need of assistance doing work they need done and we will feel good about calling him again ourselves if we need work done. Very professional. I liked his knowledge of how to get the job done and done well.

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.
