I had some flooding in my basement and needed someone to fix quickly. I had never hired from Thumbtack but was looking at all options to get this done. Jim responded and replaced my sump pump on Sunday morning, less than 24 hours from my post. He did a good job, pricing was fair and would hire again. I was really relieved and grateful to have it done before further damage.

My boyfriend and I recently moved to the Rochester area from Albany and purchased a house in February. Not being from the area we did not know a good handyman so we thought we would try thumbtack and use advice from local referrals. We were looking to install a new composite sink and faucet in our kitchen and posted an add under plumbing, within a couple hours we had a response from Jeff. We purchased the sink and set up a time for him to come to our house and install it. It was a flawless process and the sink looks wonderful. Being new to our home we had several filters in the basement connected to our kitchen sink and he removed them for us, significantly increasing our water pressure. We have scheduled him to come back to our house to install a backsplash in our kitchen and I am sure his attention to detail will be evident. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone in the area.

We needed part of our basement redone, as well as some repair work to a wall under the sink in our kitchen. Bruce's estimate made it possible for us to get both jobs done at once. His work is fantastic. He communicated with us regularly before & during our project. His work is spectacular! We will be using him again & we refer our friends to him when they tell us they need work done in their homes.

Joe has been our contractor for about 9 years. He has remodeled just about everything in our home from the roof to the basement. We just can't say enough about his professionalism. Our bathroom and kitchen are awesome and because of him, we plan to get a great return on our investment.

My family and I decided to finish off our basement. We added a full bathroom, wet bar, and relocated our hot water tank. Roman was a pleasure to work with and finished the job on time. He was very clean and always picked up his tool and any mess he made at the end of the day. I would highly recommend him for his talent and professionalism.

John was hired to replace a basement ceiling for us. The end result was better than I ever expected, and was right in our price range. He was cheerful, professional, and left the place looking great. I'm extremely satisfied with everything about the job, and would highly recommend John to do a fast and thorough job in you home.

Punctual, hard working and stuck to his time line. I wanted him to paint the basement of a property I had just purchased and in the process asked if he could do a few other things that needed to be done and without hesitation his answer was always "I can do that".

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.
