We were relocating to California and needed some painting done in several rooms. I posted a request for services and Power Construction responded with a reasonable quote, and came in within a day's notice to paint our house. Albert and his crew were very professional and did an excellent job. The paint color matched perfectly with the existing color, I give my seal of approval for this company, they were very flexible and met all of our expectations. Great job!!!!!

Jaime did a great deal of tile and general construction work for us in Novemer 2014. He and staff were very professional throughout the project. Bid was extremely competitive and service was delivered as promised. We could not be more pleased with the result. His tile work is exactly what one would expect from such a master craftsman. I highly recommend Jaime for any project. He does NOT "cut corners" and obviously takes a gret deal of pride in his work. We were so impressed we felt we needed to compensate him more than his original bid. Truly great work.

I contacted EMCHage services as my third bid for a job. The job requires building a fourth room as an office in closing two walls and a built-in shelf. EMCH gave me the lowest bid for the job. I knew it was a fair price because that's what I had bid out in my head. The owner Eric Meek showed up and explained in detail what he was going to do and how is going to do it. I knew this project was gonna come out right. Eric Meek began construction and I was home to observe his work. I noticed he was meticulous and careful about how he was proceeding especially with the walls that already existed. He made sure everything was level and plumb with the existing walls. The finish work was incredible it looks as if it was a part of the original construction. I will definitely use EMCH for all my future needs.

Anatoly Kolker and Mac Construction has been our prime choice for remodeling, repairing and new home projects for the last 10 years. Before we sold our old house in the Ridgecrest area he made some crucial modifications to our balcony and important repairs elsewhere, and at our new house in the North Valley he designed and built a beautiful and perfectly functional covered patio that has drawn many compliments from visitors and neighbors. We always find him and Mac in general to be professional, reliable, honest, imaginative and affordable. He always makes sure that he delivers what the client wants and does it with first class workmanship. He readily makes suggestions that can save final costs without sacrificing quality. My wife and I recommend him and Mac in general with high praise and absolutely without qualification. He’s an outstanding builder and an asset to the community.

NM Maintenance did a good job for me. The crew worked very hard to complete the job. They estimated less fill dirt than what was needed and the actual cost of the job ended up being $400 more than the original quote. Overall I was pleased but was not happy with the extra cost and falling short with the fill dirt.

We were amazed by the professional and friendly attitude all of the workers for MSS Construction. We love how our total gut and rebuild master bathroom turned out. We were able to work with Rob and Sean on design possibilities and felt that the final product is exactly what we were dreaming about. The price was fair and the product AWESOME! Will bring them in for the next project!

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 architects work?

Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

How do architects charge for their services?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.

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.
