I hired Skilled Service, Repair & Installation a few weeks ago, right before the New Year, and it was a very pleasant experience, from the introductory email, to the phone/text conversations, to the finalization of the job. One thing I really like about Joseph is, that he is really does seem like an honest business man. He must've mentioned to me two or three times not to ever feel shy about asking any questions at all and voicing my own opinion. As a homeowner, and not a professional in the construction business, it is very intimidating at times hiring contractors and letting them and their sub-contractors in the home while having to perform family-hood duties. I mean the household chores, the kids and their homework and their chores, etc, etc. I run a very busy household, Joseph's head had to be spinning, trying to stay focused on the work, hearing the noise and comotion. Who knows what he must've thought of my homelife, LOL, but like I said above, him and his helper were very pleasant and professional. They both have children themselves, and they both said it was nothing new to them. Even when Joseph came by for the estimate, my son and daughter would not leave my side, not even five minutes into estimate he had my kids giggling and smiling, I thought that was very sweet of him. So between the paint job and the electrical installation for the master bedroom and kids' room, the rooms came out absolutely wonderful. The accent walls in each room bounce the rest of the room right out at you. The lighting was beautifly done and there are more outlets and they are so easy to get to now, yay!!

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.

PROJECT: Remove and install an exterior door. Darin came to my home a few months ago to evaluate a project I listed on Thumbtack. He provided a quote in writing within hours of meeting us. He was one of a few contractors that presented a written contract that detailed the work he proposed. He arrived at each of our three meetings on time. He completed the job tasked efficiently and left the work space clean and clear. His work was excellent!!! My husband and I would hire HBR again...in a heartbeat!

Ted is a very experienced contractor who knows what he is doing. He clearly gave me a lot of inputs throughout the course of project. I hired him to remove the wall between the dinning and kitchen and then looking at his work I gave him many other add-on projects such as building a kitchen island, cabinets, building a wet bar, backsplash tiles etc., He is a punctual guy who shows up to work on time. Not to mention he is a very friendly. He fixed many other small things outside of the project and was kind enough to not include in invoice. I am not going to look for contractors for any kind of home remodeling projects. I was away for family vacation and he helped in coordinating with counter top guys to get the work done. Payments: He took payments as and when the job is done. He send pictures of the job as and when it is done to make sure the end result is as planned. That helped me a lot to see things as it happens when I was still busy at my work. Stop your search and hire him to get the work done!

I requested a quote for repairs to a fence that had been damaged a few months earlier when a tree fell on it. Brian responded almost immediately with a preliminary quote and set up a time to come to the property for a visual inspection. He did a good job keeping me up to date on when the special-order materials were due to arrive and letting me know when my job would be done. He was prompt, helpful in his suggestions, friendly and true to his word. This small job was dismissed by several contractors previously – they would come to inspect the property and waste my time because I would never hear from them again after they left promising they would be back with a quote. Small business owners these days seem to have their pick of jobs because most treat homeowners with small jobs as if we’re bothering them. I have a more significant project I would like done in the next year or so and have now asked Brian for a quote on that. It’s as if most of them don’t realize small jobs done well lead to customer loyalty and a good working relationship the homeowner is happy to continue with for years to come. I would recommend Fratturo Home Remodeling without reservation.

My experience with contractors, including this company, is that you have to have patience. When a job has multiple areas of concentration (electrical, plumbing, carpentry, etc.), there may be different people doing each service; which means that everything is dependent upon each person doing their service in a timely manner, otherwise possible delays. Also, most contractors have multiple job sites where their people are rotated where needed. Since no one can predict a problem will occur, this also causes delays in getting a project completed. All of this is the nature of the job. As I mentioned before, try to have patience. Renovation projects can be frustrating and sometimes upsetting; but if everything is done correctly with minimal errors, the most important thing is that you are happy with the skills provided and the quality of the work completed.

I owned three homes in fifty years and used many contractors for various projects both big and small. Mauricio Franklin of Mike Eisner Restoration was one of the best contractors, if not the best, I ever used. In addition to the above highlighted qualities, he and his workers were extremely courteous and polite. It was pleasant having them work in my house.

David and his Company have been helping me on various projects for over a year now. I was fortunate to find them through thumbtack. I was in dire need. I had realized a water stain forming in the bathroom ceiling of my shore rental on a Sunday afternoon only two hours before having to head back to Boston and I was scheduled to have house guests in 4 days. Who was I going to find in 2 hours notice on a Sunday afternoon to come help me? Like a miracle David responded within seconds of me posting on thumbtack. I explained the issue and my time constraint and he said, "I'll be right over." As soon as we met in person I knew this was the type of honest professional contractor that I could trust (hard to find! I own two rental properties.. believe me). David assessed the situation and told me not to worry. He would send me a detailed quote of what was needed by later that night and that I could rest assured the work would be done for my guests in time. I was able to trust him with my house keys and everything went smoothly. He left the place in excellent condition and stuck to his word on his quote. Since that instance I actually stopped using another contractor that I often used and starting contacting David. Over the last year he's run to my rescue several times and more recently accomplished yet another successful job for us. David is honest, reliable, thorough, and a pleasure to work with. He goes out of his way all the time. There's no way I could possibly manage renting a property in NJ while living in Boston if I didn't have someone like David to help me out!

I wanted to recreate the feeling of relaxation, calmness and fun that I get when I visit the rivers and beaches of my home country of Trinidad. Don and his team masterfully recreated that feeling with executing the design of my two bathrooms! It is very difficult to find contractors that are not only excellent at what they do but also trust worthy and respect your home. I was able to give them keys to my home, and go to work feeling confident that my home was in safe hands. Thank you to Don and his team for giving me my own little river and beach mini getaways right here in hectic NYC!

Carmine came to the rescue when a previous contractor left the job unfinished. He had cabinet doors and draws made. He painted as well. An excellent and honest person to work with. You don't find that type of dedication and honesty too often. He was a complete professional all the way. We will work together in the coming months for I have more projects. Thank You So Much I cannot express my gratitude enough

This company surprised me with their Professionalism and work ethic. I've had very bad encounters with other contractors in the past but their Manager Josh is one of the best in the business. Him and his team worked overtime completing my drywall removal & floor installation in 2 1/2 days. I had major mold issues due to water damage In my basement and GlobeTech took care of it right away. Would definitely call them for any work I may need in the future.

My experience working with the Score Construction has been excellent. They are true professionals who bring important construction knowledge and outstanding management skills to renovation of our house in Brooklyn NY. There has been a lot of difficulties during the renovation such as molded shearing building elements, damaged carrying beams or previous renovation mistakes. In every part of the project, the entire team of Score const. lead by Jay, provided excellent service. Especially at the beginning of construction, Jay’s helps for our purchases such as kitchen cabinets, interior/exterior doors, tiles, stones, toilets educated and saved us lots of money and time. Besides, we find the best quality products with his great ideas. Not only their ability of perfect finishes, but also critical suggestions for future usage and durability/longevity of house as various issues came up enabled us to make informed decisions throughout the process. Anyone would be well served in choosing the Score Construction as general contractor for their upcoming project. Thanks!

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.
