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.

I had Jeff come out to my home to provide me with an estimate for a full bathroom installation in my basement. He was incredibly detailed and took over an hour and half of his time to listen to my needs, perform measurements and explain different facets of the project and options available to me. He later emailed me a very detailed estimate. While we ultimately chose to go with a different contractor, I would have felt very comfortable going with Jeff for my project.

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.

Structural repairs in basement in advance of selling our house. Dan responded promptly to our reaching out on Thumbtack. Estimate was very fair. Quality of work was excellent. They were very professional but answered our questions and provided great service. They did a good clean up at the job site. We plan to use their services again.

Our basement door was replaced and made to withstand the Rochester winter. A whole new frame was created as our home was built in the 60's, there was a great deal of deterioration. The new metal door looks terrific and sturdy. Very fair price, very pleased with results. Would highly recommend Phillip.

We needed a handrailing to be installed in order to pass a home inspection. The challenge was that the stairs to the basement did not have a wall to install the railing on. Robb made some suggestions and was punctual in his arrival. I expected the most basic 2X4 installation but instead was incredibly impressed with a customized handrail that had perfect rounded ends and was actually quite stylish. Robb's pricing was incredibly fair and I recommend him to anyone who needs some work done.

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".

About

The #1 reason I think what makes our company great, is that we ensure the job is done correctly the 1st time. Our company is not a corp. Its not designed to dedicate its work towards a profit. Our company has integrity & has been around for over 25+ yrs. The number one part of the job where I become excited as when I realize I saw the homeowners serious issue and a low-cost...in other words, I'm always willing to work with them, the customer as far as pricing and estimating is concerned.

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.
