I had a really bad back up in by basement bathroom and of course began panicking. Jason contacted me and was at my house just a few hours later and got to work right away. From the second I met him outside, I felt like everything would be ok. From his calm demeanor, and knowledgeable questions I knew I was in the right hands. Jason worked for HOURS trying to unclog the persistent and stubborn clog but was only able to clear it up slightly all due to an idiot contractor I hired in the past. After more hours of working his butt off he kindly suggested I call a sewer specialist as this was too much for a plumber. I asked him how much I owed him and although I don't recall if he said "nothing" or half of the quoted, I gave him the full amount of his original quote because I KNOW he did his best. I will not be calling ANYONE else for future plumbing projects in my house

Mike has worked on a range of projects for us, that include small maintenance jobs and large remodeling work. He's put up walls, done electrical work, plumbing, carpentry, roofing and painting. He's been our go-to fix-it guy for over 10 years and I know that when I call Mike that the job will get done on schedule and that it will be done right.

Greivin is a very reliable, honest and responsive contractor who did a great job at repainting our house. I offered him the job after he submitted the best bid among 4 contractors to paint my 1340 sq feet house in Hoboken. My walls were painted in dark colors with different rooms having different colors and we were shifting to all white - he did a great job that needed four coats and also agreed to repair our wooden floor in a small corner for no extra cost. He has done a great and timely job - in a condo building, he did the job with no disturbance to neighbors. Highly recommended.

Matt was great! I have been waiting on the contractor to repair my roof. Meanwhile needed to tarp it (since hiring the contractor tiles were stripped of the roof -while waiting for them to come) Matt came and tarped the roof even in the pouring rain (I felt terrible) . He even advised me of the roofs condition saying it was it good condition dispite the missing tiles and to let the contractors know I knew the there would be no Plywood repairs needed(they [contractors] were already trying to sell me plywood!). I can sleep tonight knowing no rain will come in while waiting on the contractor (I wish they were as communicative and fast as Matt was.)

Great job handling some bumps in the project. We had 3 basement windows replaced. We ordered new construction windows instead of replacement, so that added complexity but Darin was still able to complete the work quickly and make the finished product look great. He stuck to his initial quote even though it must have taken him more time than expected. The job required a lot of tools and mess but he left things looking tidy. He was also very responsive as we set up the appointment. Would definitely hire again. Thanks!

We hired James and Global Housing Contractors to remodel a bathroom. The process for us to select the right contractor took months, and during this process James was by far the most responsive, visiting us multiple times, submitting proposals, 3D models, reviewing and accommodating our ever changing circumstances and needs. Our project scope has actually increased quite significantly (for example, we added a second bathroom to fix, lots of additional small items that we didn't consider at first) and James and his team was flexible and professional all along the way. James personally supervised the work multiple times a week and we couldn't be happier with the end results. During the whole process James was responsible and we could work out every single detail (e.g. tiles, paint colors, solve some unforeseen problems, etc.) together. We will definitely work with Global Housing Contractors in the future.

This is really more of a 4.5-star review :) We're first-time homeowners and hired Tom for a kitchen renovation and a few other small projects. We are really pleased with the results! Tom worked as quickly as possible and communicated well with us throughout the process over text and phone. In moments of frustration and delay (to be expected when coordinating with the town on permits and with subcontractors), Tom was even-keeled and worked with us to find fair solutions. His workmanship was good and he was quick to fix any/all small issues that we asked about. Tom was a reliable, personable, and his price was fair. We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for another project.

Eric really knows his stuff! Best thing about him is that he does plumbing and electrical work ... for a fraction of the cost of those so-called “specialists.” He fixed a leaky shower head, by replacing the cartridge. He replaced a defective refrigerator water & ice line. And he repaired and replaced an outdoor spigot, including a new pipe and valves that required him to drill & repair an interior basement wall. He was thorough, he picked up all of the necessary materials, and charged me at his cost. A total professional. He will return soon, to complete a few other projects for me.

Sidney was excellent. We asked him to take down a couple of old shelves on our walls and renovate our bathroom. He did an amazing job and I highly recommend him. One of walls didn't require sheet rocking as he did a good job bringing it down and he discounted 300$ off the original quoted price. That was a pleasant surprise and showed his honesty.

(This message originally sent directly to Home Geeks): Dear Vince: I want to take this opportunity to compliment your wonderful crew on two jobs very well done. I really can't say enough good things about Denis Esposito and his partner, Mike (whose last name, regrettably, I didn't get). The interior work they did on my basement and kitchen, as well as the exterior work above my bay window all turned out beautifully. Their hard work (under some brutal weather conditions), attention to detail, and dedication to quality was nothing short of exceptional. I've never seen any workmen go so far above and beyond the call of duty as they did (particularly Denis). I hope you'll pass my thanks to Denis and Mike for their outstanding efforts. The repairs to my home that they completed far exceed "satisfactory." On that basis, I'd have no reservations in contacting Home Geeks for any future work to be done, or in recommending the company to anyone needing a high-quality contractor. Sincerely, Rick

JTK Remodeling, Tim, did a fine job with the projects I needed help with. He was right on time and got right to work. He had asked me to send him pix prior to coming to do the work so he prepped and made sure he had the right materials to complete the job - no surprises - well there was 1 little surprise, not his fault, and he managed to work around it anyway. Very personable.

The All-Rise team went above and beyond to deliver a great experience. I had many questions about the execution especially considering the margin for error, I really needed to get my floors done right and get it done right in one attempt, All Rise accomplished that. All-Rise delivered within my budget and actually added value beyond that which is a unicorn type of service in an industry that will charge you for everything including the right I breathe. I can go on and on about All Rise, but at some point it will seem bias when in truth, I’m just an overly satisfied customer that will bring my future need back to All Rise every time. All Rise completed my floor renovations, installed by base boards and door molding, renovated my damaged sheet rock wall from molding and even surprisingly repaired a crack in my ceiling. Cheers to you guys and Thank you so much.

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.
