Contractors come to do something of what are you asking, take money and leave. Not John. He build- I don’t like he rebuilt. I would ask him to buil one think, he say I’ll build you on the better way . His guys would spend hour over one board, just to make it perfect. If I wanted something differently, John would do it with a smile. Never attitude. John and the boys were building my house as his own, ten times better then what I have imagined. John, I will never call another contractor in my life! Thank you, Your most difficult client ever

Excellent Work -- Great Value Andrey Kosmin and his assistant, Paul, arrived on time as scheduled and immediately went to work removing the old bathtub and surround. They quickly prepped the area, constructed a shower seat and then rebuilt the walk-in shower floor to accommodate the new drain, now relocated to the center of the shower floor. Within three days the walls and floor were tiled and grouted, the new shower head was plumbed and installed and so was a new bathroom light fixture, cabinet countertop, sink, faucet and a tiled backsplash, all of which completed the upgrade to what is now a thoroughly modern and well-appointed bathroom. Andrey recommended M.S. Railing for the installation of the new shower door, which is designed to swing into or out of the shower. Mike arrived on time, completed taking measurements and his crew did an excellent job installing the glass doors about a week later. We had Mike treat the glass to help prevent soap and water stains. All aspects of Andrey's work is excellent. We strongly believe we received excellent value for the work he did. We highly recommend him for your next bathroom project no matter how big or small.

We called this company for a bid on scraping and painting the facia around our home and Lino gave us a fair price. He not only gave us a great price but went the extra mile; he scrubbed and washed our gutters, and cleaned them out as he went along. (It was extremely hot outside but he just kept working.) They look so much better, and the paint job is excellent. He also repaired a hole in the gutter, and then he did a sheetrock repair on top of that! It was so nice to not have to call yet anther company to do that repair! We will definitely be calling this polite, energetic owner of Home Solutions for all our handy man needs in the future.

Victor replaced a tar roof on my office building. I am very pleased with the new roof. What makes Victor shine is his honesty and willingness to work through difficult situations such as short notice changes to the roofing schedule. He has a great crew that works hard. Victor is easy to reach (a real plus for a contractor) and quick to respond to messages. I would use him again for any work on my building that he is qualified for.

We needed our bathroom re-tiled and a new sub floor. There was mold under the tile so we had to postpone the tiling. Paul from Home Run was great. He was extremely flexible while we got the mold figured out. He did an amazing job, was on time, picked up all the materials (even the tile I ordered), and was super courteous. I highly recommend him and his crew. We already have another project we are going to go with him on.

My experience with JDR Builders, John Rank specifically, was outstanding. The project was a complete renovation of a dilapidated dry cleaning building into a state compliant OMMD facility. The project was roughly 3 months long, and required tight timeline management both for cost reasons and filing deadlines for the state certification. John's construction experience, and project management experience set him apart from most of the contractors we have worked with in the past. His initial proposal was well thought out. We agreed on a realistic budget. He managed to that budget, and submitted 1 change request for the entire project. He managed the inspectors and the permitting, which was an area of real concern, as the building was old, and the city was waiting for someone to renovate it. His commercial experience really came through during this phase; the city had numerous issues regarding the antiquated electric. At one point we were in jeopardy of being able to even receive power from the street. He was available when I needed questions answered, and he never tried to confuse the issues with technical details. In short he was good to his word start to finish. The quality of work was top notch, with a great deal of finishing work done at his expense. He recognized obvious gaps in our planning, raised the issues to us, and then took action based on our feedback. What went wrong with the project? Nothing. As issues came up, there was always a plan for resolving them, always options for maintaining the budget. I have personally been involved with a dozen projects of this scope and size, and have suffered through all forms of contractor short comings, and bad circumstances. Contractors who are great at construction, but terrible at managing a timeline or budget, or great at managing the budget, but at the expense of a useful product. This was simply a clinic on how to run and delivery a project. Thank you to JDR Builders for your hard work and know how.

I was a little out of my league as this was my first construction project. Max and his team were fantastic listeners to my needs and provided excellent guidance along the way. They are an extremely friendly and professional team; a pleasure to work with! I am so grateful for the finished product. Could not be happier with the job done. I would highly recommend this business to anyone looking for a contracted project!

The total contract was more than I expected in work and total information concerning the project. I did recommend their work for a next door neighbor. Another next door neighbor had work done by them and I was impressed, of course the neighbor highly recommended their work. Dad and son were very polite and friendly, I felt sorry for them working in the high temperatures we experienced during the contract work.

Jose was quick to respond and drove out and gave a reasonable price. His crew and Jose came when they said they would and explained everything from materials to Time it would take. .He was done in two days clean up was fantastic. Excellent work and very nice person . I asked about his one bad review and he told me the client did not want to put 40 percent down and that they never hired him so he really didn't do any work for them. I was a little worried putting money down but he does have to buy the materials and he showed up and delivered what he promised. I will definitely use him again for any other projects I have in the future. I am glad I chose J&M Construction

Starting out with the basics they showed up on time, did what I asked them and cleaned up afterwards. These are important aspects of a job that makes it much more pleasant. In addition, I needed them to build a cat ramp and they did a great job at designing and building a sturdy ramp that should last for years. I was happy with their work and I would recommend them.

Tucker did an amazing job building our new deck! Our old deck, while functional, was a bad use of space in a small backyard. He took our somewhat nebulous vision for a new deck and ran with it, making sure to involve us every step of the way and paying close attention to detail. Tucker was always clear about outlining the steps and the goals for each day and made sure to ask if he wasn't sure about a particular detail. The end result is a terrific new deck that fully utilizes our small backyard space and fits in perfectly with our modern townhouse. We couldn't be more pleased, and Tucker was great to work with!

Shawn and Anthony recently met with my wife and I to discuss our project. They provided insight into materials and building methods we hadnt considered and one of the quotes provided was extremely competive. While we ultimately decided to go a different direction with the project, I would consider contacting them again for any future projects.

Bruce Sternberg designed and served as general contractor for two major projects for us: a complete renovation of the second floor of our house and the design and construction of an art studio building on our property. The second floor of our 1912 bungalow was dark and had much unusable space and no closets. Bruce's design opened up the space to include two good size bedrooms, huge closets, and larger completely renovated bathroom. He also added windows and skylights. The space is now bright, functional, and truly beautiful. The studio is a freestanding building designed to capture the light and provide all that is necessary for the large paintings and mixed media pieces my husband does. The studio has electricity, heating and plumbing, and Bruce designed it so that it could be converted to other uses (such as a guest house) in the future. When we originally met with Bruce, we had only vague ideas about what we wanted -- more space, more light, and more of "us" in the house. Similarly, my husband just knew he wanted a space to paint and display/store completed artwork. Bruce spent a lot of time with us to understand our sense of esthetic and how we would use the spaces. He also looked a lot at the exterior of our house and was committed to making the interior beautiful and functional while also respecting and enhancing the integrity of the exterior. We had met with other architects but none "got us" like Bruce did or offered such a beautiful, comprehensive plan. We also really appreciated the fact that Bruce would also serve as general contractor and would be on site throughout the construction. Like all projects, this took a bit longer than we would have liked and there were a few hitches along the way as would be expected in an older home like ours. However, that was all forgotten when the work was completed and exceeded our expectations. We truly couldn't be happier with how both projects turned out. A good friend of mine regular reports that she has "bathroom envy" when she visits and looks at the two skylights and beautiful wood and tile work in the bathroom Bruce designed. I get similar oohs and aahs about the two huge closets in the master bedroom. Bruce added two new windows to the second bedroom and designed lighting that makes the space perfect for a relaxing reading room, display space for more art, and a wonderful guest bedroom when family and friends visit. We are equally thrilled with the studio building. Fellow artists and clients who come to see my husband's art, always note what a wonderful space he works in. The way Bruce sited the building created different outdoor spaces for us - with a dog run on one side of the studio and the entrance to our garden on the other side.

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.
