Erik came in and took care of two jobs we needed done immediately to sell our house. Price was way under what other contractors would charge. Good experience.

At first I was very nervous to begin a big renovation but after meeting with Chuck Sklare to discuss my vision for my new kitchen I felt comfortable and was sure he was the man for my job. Chuck took the time to go with me to various suppliers and advise me on my selection of cabinets, granite, flooring and tile. The contractors were professional, on time each day, and did perfect work as if it was their home. My kitchen turned out perfect and exactly as I in visioned . I would recommend the Barnes Sklare Remodeling to all my friends and family !! Their work is outstanding !!

d3 Services did an amazing job with our remodel. We had 3 bathrooms that needed varying levels of work (demolition, tiling, drywall, plumbing, electrical) and they all turned out beautiful! They are true professionals, they care about the quality of work they do and they make sure you are happy. They came every day as promised - not the norm with many other contractors! I would highly recommend them!

First, I became very sick shortly after this job was completed and I completely spaced leaving a review until I logged back in nearly a year later to use this site for another job. My sincere apologies. The review I would have left is below. Contractor was great. Finished project quickly in spite of running into some unconventional construction in the wall that would have made it difficult for me or a less knowledgeable contractor to complete the job. He was friendly and communication ahead of the job date prevented any confusion. He let me know that if I had any issues with the work or if I would like the wires to be hidden within the wall, he would be happy to come back out and take care of it. Would absolutely hire again.

I accessed Thumbtack last week in search of a contractor that could replace the existing tile around my fireplace. My wife and I purchased some marble tiles a few weeks back to replace the existing tile with. We were struggling to find a contractor in our area that could complete the work with any level of confidence. The first few contractors we contacted were concerned about breaking the marble pieces while trying to cut them to fit the space. Thumbtack seemed like our last hope. After filling out the short questionnaire about the type of work that I was requesting, Rodney replied almost instantly. Not only did he reply, but he sent a very personalized response to me, addressing specific concerns about the job and even posing a few questions for me. Of course I replied right away and we were soon on the phone making plans for an in-home visit for an accurate quote. Rodney was very accommodating to my schedule. He offered to visit with me and my wife in the evening to give us his quote for the work. He was very friendly, very knowledgeable, and very polite. Rodney quoted us at a very competitive price - below most other quotes we had received. With a combination of his persone and his competitive price, we knew instantly that we wanted Rodney to complete this work for us. Rodney immediately made room for us in his busy schedule in order to complete the work "as soon as possible" as my original request stated. He quoted us on a Thursday night and started the work the next morning. I'm not sure that this is something that Rodney will always be able to do for his customers, but it was surely appreciated by my wife and I in this case. Rodney did a complete tear out and reinstallation project for my wife and over the course of three days. He completed the tear out and preparation on Friday, cut and placed all of the marble on the fireplace on Saturday, and finished grout and cleanup on Sunday. Rodney worked late into the day on Saturday, ensuring customer satisfaction and job completion by Sunday as originally planned. All the while, Rodney was very polite, very respectful of our time and space, and very tidy and thorough at the completion of the project. He made sure that there were no loose ends before leaving and ensured that my wife and I were happy with his work. He even offered to go above and beyond and complete further small services for us at no cost if we felt they were necessary to make the project more perfect than it already was. I would recommend Rodney to anyone in the Indy area that is looking for an efficient, knowledgeable, polite contractor that will surely get your job done the way YOU want it done. Rodney is not looking to rush through a job - he is working for his customers trust and a lasting relationship. He has certainly earned that with my wife and i. We've got several project ideas that we will be contacting Rodney about in the coming years. Thanks Rodney!

I highly recommend Safe Guard Renovations and its owner David Rogers, we have worked with many contractors over the years, but Dave and his team were without a doubt exceptional! All of his staff was courteous, knowledgeable and efficient, they answered questions and concerns we had and made adjustments at the last minute. As a small business owner ourselves, we know how difficult it is to keep great employee's, Safe Guard and Dave were great and we will be recommending them and using them for a long time. Ed Wolf

We bought our home about a year ago knowing that the roof was old and that we would have to replace it relatively soon. I was hoping to wait until next year to replace it, but unfortunately the roof started leaking and next year was too long to wait. I contacted a big name company and they came out and quoted me a HUGE amount to replace the roof. I posted on Thumbtack that I was looking for a roof replacement quote and Dan Replied back right away saying that he could come out that evening and take a look at it. Dan showed up at our house and walked our roof in the cold and dark (he brought lighting) and told us right then and there what he would charge us to do the replacement. And the price he gave us was HALF what the big name company wanted to charge us! He even said he would come out the next day and tar up a temporary patch where he could tell the leak was coming from so that would hold us until he and his crew could get the replacement done. True to his word, he patched it all up for us. Dan kept in contact with us for the next 2 weeks until they could get out to do our roof - which we greatly appreciated. Dan and his crew got our roof done in two days and left our yard neat and clean. Dan even went above and beyond by removing an old chimney stack on the roof that we no longer wanted or used. Dan didn’t ask for a penny from us until after the job was completed. He is a fair and honest contractor that does exceptional work and was a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be calling him when we replace our house siding!

My house closed on the 4th of July weekend. I really needed new flooring and painting done before I could move in. I was staying with relatives. I called all the local contractors in my small city. I either got answering machines, or no call backs. Anthony Hancovsky gave me a quote on Thumbtack and drove all the way to my city 2 1/2 hours away on a Holiday weekend to do the work so I would be able to get into my new home. He drove back and forth until the job was done, and at reasonable prices. I would recommend Anthony Hancovsky from Emperial Homes.

Bill can do anything and everything properly, from basic drywall patch and paint to complete roof install or replace electricalbreakers and panel. He has helped me over 10 years with my rental properties...no project too big or too small...installed french doors (with framing), windows, concrete patio, fencing, major plumbing...you name it. He is honest. If he makes a mistake, he takes responsibility for it, and his pricing is more than fair.

Keith is my general contractor and architect of choice for any of my home improvement projects. He is very conscientious of price and working within a budget while providing the most bang for your home improvement buck. He has no problems working with the home owner on design and budget to get you to your goal. I have used him on several major projects including a two story addition with basement, a partially covered deck and two basement remodels (the new basement and the original.) I highly recommend him.

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.
