These guys were amazing! Setting up the appointment was easy, the technician was extremely punctual and very knowledgable. I live in a 50 year old building so who knows what's behind the wall (I have the holes to prove it) - but he knew immediately and was able to get everything mounted exactly how I had pictured it. Will definitely be relying on these guys in the future!

They were on-time, reliable, and respectful. They got the job done with ease, and helped me move the furniture to the bedroom. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of building IKEA furniture.

I hired them for major renovation of my house such as floor, entire kitchen, opening a wall, painting, central air, French drain, front steps, etc. They also get ready for our rental floor on time, so we can rent it timely manner. Price was very reasonable, but last 10% of work took very long time. It was very annoying that it got delay so long since first 90%of work was done faster than expected. However, they were honest about why it was delayed which I liked about. After all, I would hire them again for further house renovation.

Herson Lopez and his team executed three projects simultaneously for us: re-roofing our house, a complete exterior paint job, and the re-building of our front porch. Their work was excellent, and the end results look terrific. More importantly, though, was the fact that all the work was completed on-time and on-budget. In addition, Herson was personally involved in project oversight, and he took the time to communicate with us on a regular basis as work progressed. I highly recommend Herson, and I will gladly rely on him for future work!

Tom's team put in our kitchen backsplash and is working on drywalling our basement. We are very happy with the work and the responsiveness of Tom and his team. Tom is a pleasure- shows true enthusiasm for his work- and has great ideas on how to make a project go smoother.

Nertil and his team were amazing. My husband and I hired him to add a patio to our backyard where the platform of an old garage stood. Nertil was the only contractor who assured me that he would start and complete the job right away (out of 5!) Our backyard surpassed my expectations, I was meant to put a shed on the patio but cannot bring myself to cover Nertil's beautiful work. He added a small wall toward the back and even straightened the stairs for no additional fee, all the while I was on vacation! I cannot recommend Nertil enough, my neighbors and family members have already come running for his number, he is a true professional I would recommend him to everyone.

Glenn Scelza is a godsend. My old friend desperately needed help of a good carpenter to come and assess the benign neglect on the front of her antique home. Garage doors needed to be installed post haste, but the garage door company needed the repairs to be made first. I posted on Thumbtack and Glenn responded immediately. Glenn arrived and I could tell right away what a nice guy he is and is a seasoned carpenter/contractor. He assessed the project with a trained eye and zeroed in on what was good in terms of the construction and what looked bad to us, was very doable indeed.. He was very resourceful and made use of what could remain and shopped locally which I loved, for lumber, gutters, leaders and even found the novelty clapboard pieces to match the 1940's facade. He was very fair and open about what things would cost along with his craftsmanship which was worth every penny. I appreciate he could even work with us so late in the season even as winter weather set in. He will be present right after the holiday weekend to connect with the garage door people. When those vintage looking doors are installed the place will regain its curb appeal once again, thanks to Glenn. This guy is a keeper and I can see why is highly recommended! I add my recommendation to Thumbtack as well as our neighbors in the community. I look forward in working with Glenn on future projects. Thanks Glenn! Norm Peekskill, NY

Leonardo is THE BEST! came on time, very professional, extremely experienced and has a calm and friendly demeanor. He put together a bookcase, a bench and hung some pictures for me and he was really pleasant to hang out with. Honest and diligent and calm...all traits that make having someone in your apartment with a toddler much easier! I would hire him again in a second and his pricing was extremely fair.

The owner, Ty Salazar, is a prince of a guy who did all he could to satisfy my requirements. Between Ty and his assistant, Jomaira, all the details and minor issues that one can expect with a kitchen remodel in a 65 year old building were resolved with minimal delay and to my satisfaction. His crew are all very proficient, personable guys who worked as cleanly and neatly as one could expect. I highly recommend NY Home renovation for your next residential project.

We contracted with High Rise to undertake a kitchen and bathroom renovation project and we were very happy with the outcome of the project as Kiran was open to working within the parameters that we had set for the project. Unlike many other people who gave us quotes Kiran actually provided us a few alternatives which would help us keep the costs down while still getting a quality product. I think a contracting firm who can work with different types of clients and can provide a few different solutions is good to have on your side rather than someone who provides a single quote and is not very flexible. Personally Kiran's behavior is also something that we generally found appealing.

After purchasing a new home I had David come over to check our garage doors. He adjusted and lubricated the doors. We decided to change our old garage door opener to the lift master belt drive which is quieter and has an app that can control the door. So cool! David was very knowledgeable and did a professional job at a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend him to everyone!!!

I hired Zack for my kitchen remodel. He did an amazing job. He is very understanding and was always open to ideas. He is extremely experienced in remodeling homes and is very familiar with the building codes since he is also a home inspector. He was referred to me by my neighbor who also had his kitchen done. The format of his home was exactly like ours but Zack had different ideas for our kitchen since our family is larger , he removed the wall that was separating the kitchen and dining room and installed base cabinets in between the two rooms with a very attractive counter top that really catches my guests attention as soon as they enter the front door. Overall i was very satisfied with the work he did for me and i would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone including my family and friends

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.
