As a contractor by trade I expect professionalism,honesty and quality when I hire someone to work at my home.Jimmy not only met all those qualifications but surpassed them.After receiving outrageous estimates from some of the major name garage door companies Suffield garage doors was next,after meeting Jimmy he was hired before he even gave me a price (which was extremely more reasonable)Jimmy was quick,clean and kept his word on the price,no surprises.I could not be happier with my new garage doors and the quality of work and service I received.Great overall experience and 5 stars for Suffield garage doors -Matt Fela

This is a well organized and experienced 3-brothers operation. The quote for the job was extremely detailed and thorough--you knew what you were paying for. We had a minor mixup about the start date but actually worked out for the best. They put in full days using their time very well communicating with me about the progress of he work and any concerns they had. Their drywalling of the old garage ceiling was excellent as was their repair and painting of the walls. It's like having a new garage. What impressed me the most, was that PJ wanted an extra day to finish the job as it did not meet his standards. Details are so important. I highly recommend them. Courteous, punctual, professional and pleasant to have around. And their prices are very competitive.

We've been renovating our house for several months and the final step before selling it was having it professionally cleaned. Amy and her crew came over three days in a row to finish the job. We're moving out of state and they accommodated us despite our hectic travel schedules. The house is gleaming and sale-ready including the partially finished basement, garage and a detached guest house. They took special care to clean up dust and grime that had settled during painting and construction. Their price was very competitive compared to other quotes we got. Highly recommended!

James and his son went above and beyond my expectations! They were very professional. They were on time for both the quote and doing the work. They made sure everything was done well. They completed a whole list of things for me including installing garage door trim, a closet organizer, basement ceiling tiles, and closet hardware. They hung a mirror, towel bar, and curtain rod, fixed a broken toilet, and a few more items. Very satisfied!

GM Landscaping did an extraordinary job for us! Gus, as well as all of his crew, were on time, hard-working and professional. First, GM designed and built an outdoor kitchen. Gus was very knowledgeable and used great care in the planning. He has experience with the variety of stone and building materials and guided us to a great plan. He was very creative and using the existing space to create a true place a beauty! He supervised his workers, making sure all the details were perfect. Additionally, he did spring cleanup. Our property has a waterfall, Lake and 18 bedding areas. The edging of the property has never been better. The bushes were trimmed with precision. He also repaired a brick patio area that had roots growing underneath. It looks brand-new! Absolutely superb job!!

I've spent the last year building a new home. I hired Kyle to do the final grade and spread seed/straw. He ran into some delays with equipment, weather, my previous scraping and backfill jobs, etc, but pulled through and spent his 4th of July finishing up. He did a great job. Unfortunately Mother Nature had other plans and decided to dump an inch of rain down in 20 minutes the next day and cut huge trenches into my beautiful topsoil and washed most of my seed and straw down the creek. That is pretty much how every step of the home construction has gone though. Yay for my great luck. This has nothing to do with Kyle though, I'm 100% happy with what he did.

    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.  

    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.

    Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.
