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!

Juan was extremely flexible on timing, very communicative, professional and efficient. My shower was leaking into my downstairs neighbors' apartment and he came in to regrout my bath tub tiles the afternoon I reached out to him. While he was waiting for the grout to set, he tightened all the hinges on my kitchen cabinet doors. Juan returned the following morning to check and fix the shower faucet, washers and water lines. He discussed all this with the building super to be sure the leak was completely fixed and no more water was getting into my neighbors' apartment. I have already agreed to hire him again for other projects.

James remodeled the kitchen, flooring and interior painting. His knowledge and professionalism is exceptional. He is very detail oriented. He went out of his way to recommend few things like missing exhaust in our kitchen. When you seek any suggestions, he doesnt treat it as a way to make more money and instead suggest us what is doable. Many other contractors were reluctant to install an island in kitchen but James is never hesitant to try out something that we requests for. He would be the go person for any of our remodeling needs. If any suggestions to improve, I’d suggest to have frequent discussions with the client on site in person (sometimes text communications make it tough) and you’d be outstanding in your profession. I highly recommend James to any of your construction or remodeling needs.

These guys do what they say they will do and don't try to find ways to get more money out of you during construction. Actually the opposite, they used their relationships with vendors to negotiate even a better price on materials than I would have gotten on my own. Very honest and I've recommended them to other homeowners who also love their professionalism and work. A++

Luis and his team are outstanding professionals - attentive, responsive and with great attention to details. I was so impressed, I hired them to do painting internally and some upgrades. I was not disappointed! They were courteous, diligent, and timely, all under a very reasonable budget. I will definitely use Roldantas Contracting in future projects. And I strongly recommend them. I spent a lot of time and interviewed a few people who gave me all kinds of overpriced quotes. Roldantas gave me a quote within a day, was open to negotiate down a little and that was it, they were at work the following week. They were done within schedule, and with outstanding results. I seldom write reviews on line, but I was so impressed, I feel compelled to give these guys a shout-out of appreciation.

I highly recommend global hill construction company Mr. Shoodi performed an outstanding job and I am thrilled with the final results! My floors presented a challenge as they were badly damaged with staining and paint the full home In only 4 days shoodi transformed my flooring to looking brand new once again and pants results was very good. His technique provided me with many pros: reasonably priced, no need to move out of my home as his products are non-toxic ( a plus if you have pets or children ), the convenience of no sand or dust clean-up. Shoodi and his co-worker naveed were at all times polite, professional, and always on time as scheduled. They also meticulously moved all of my furniture back in place once the job was completed. An added bonus is their office manager ahmad who was a pleasure to deal with. Ahmad diligently took care of all appointment details including my building's insurance requirements, etc. A major plus for the consumer! New York, NY. Shoodi was a true professional.

He was the first contractor to get back to my request for a quote right away - which I really liked. He's very personable and a great businessman - and had no problem picking up a job we'd already done the demo for. He talked us through the work that we needed and was very patient in trying to understand my non-construction-lingo. The pricing was fair and the work was done with great care and communication. He brought my design to life, literally building exactly what I had asked for, and I could not be happier with the result. I will 100% be using them for my next major project.

Mark is a very talented and thoughtful architect. He designed my beautiful new kitchen and bathroom to meet my modern sense of style and my limited budget. He provided very creative solutions on how to maximize space in my kitchen without the expense of moving the plumbing locations. He is also very knowledgeable about COOP buildings and dealing with contractors. I would highly recommend Mark for any apartment renovation project.

After meeting with Jiri one morning and receiving his quote, we hired him instantly because he was kind, professional, and within our budget. Sometimes you get the feeling and you just know! We hired him to completely renovate our small boutique in Williamsburg, and believe me- he had his work cut out for him. The spot was "quaint and cute" before, but it needed a major overhaul after 15 years and now it is a high-end stunning boutique. He was patient and accommodating throughout the whole process, producing exactly what we wanted without any compromise. He rolled with the punches, adding and finishing all of our added, last-minute ideas and requests. Our design was not easy, and our building is very old- but he breathed the proper life back into it and now without question, it is one of the best looking shops in the neighborhood. Thank you so much, Jiri! We are thrilled with he has done for us and we now also call him a friend. We plan to work on more business and personal projects with him in the future. The best!

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.  

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.
