Jason was good. Replaced both valves on pipe in the basement. His work is excellent. The only thing I was not aware is the price quoted did not include parts. It included labor only. I would recommended that this be made clear for future quotes so that proper expectation is set.

Ely did an exceptional job repairing our water damaged walls in the basement and re-painting them. Spectacular worksmanship and worked hard all day to get out project done for us. We appreciate you getting this done in a timely manner and giving us a fair price. I will use Ely in the future for any handyman work around the house. Thank you.

We needed a plumbing repair late Sunday afternoon at my parents home (60 year old house with original copper plumbing). They had found water on the floor of their finished basement. It was not gushing, but a steady drip. We shut off the water to the house. Matt responded quickly through Thumbtack, and was at the house within a couple hours. It was a cracked fitting, which he repaired. Price was reasonable, he was professional and we will use him again. He also called the next day for follow-up.

Great job handling some bumps in the project. We had 3 basement windows replaced. We ordered new construction windows instead of replacement, so that added complexity but Darin was still able to complete the work quickly and make the finished product look great. He stuck to his initial quote even though it must have taken him more time than expected. The job required a lot of tools and mess but he left things looking tidy. He was also very responsive as we set up the appointment. Would definitely hire again. Thanks!

Dc sent two siblings to my house, the older one was named Al, i forgot the youngers name. They were very respectful and cleaned out my basement and livingroom trash so effortlessly and fast that i felt like i needed to tip them more. They arrived at my queens home within less than 2 hours of me reaching out to them and they stuff their van up to the door wirh every piece of junk i could toss at them. I highly reccomend these young lions, they did a good job.

L&P did an outstanding job with a very tricky project in our house. We added a new basement door where none existed so it had to be framed and installed so as not to disrupt the staircase and entryway. They were able to give an estimate within 24 hours and finished the job perfectly in two days. We recommend them highly.

Working with Daniel was a breath of fresh air. He came when he said he would, honored the quote he gave me and was very meticulous about his work. He tiled my garage and proposed some options to make it look very nice. I mean it came out really good! He also put a new railing on my basement steps making it look exactly like the railing on the opposing side. Oh and a bonus, he cleaned up after himself! The pricing was very competitive to other quotes I received. I highly recommend him and will definitely be the first person I call when I need work in the future.

We hired KI Renovations for a tiling project in our basement. It was not a straightforward job as the tiling only needed to be replaced around the perimeter after a french drain installation. KI Renovations did a great job overall, providing good value and finishing in only 1 1/2 days. Klarens and his team were professional and nice to work with. We would definitely hire them again.

I'm very blessed that I selected Erik to do my basement project. I knew he was the right person for the job the moment I met him. And he did not disappoint. He was very professional, but also fun to talk to. He's also very patient with changes that I wanted to do along the way, even if it meant taking longer to finish the job. He is very serious about satisfying the customer. He encouraged me not to settle, but to go for what I wanted so there won't be regrets later. In the end, he delivered a beautiful bathroom and kitchen/laundry room that was beyond my expectation. I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to hire him again. I have in fact talked to him about future renovations before he left :-)

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.
