Mr. Schnayder did such an excellent job! He installed two outdoor light fixtures on either side of our garage, added indoor and outdoor outlets, changed almost all of our light fixtures and added four can lights to our living room. He was able to do everything in two days and was reasonably priced. He even helped us fix a loose faucet! He was courteous and I would definitely recommend him to anyone. The only complaint I would have is that he did leave a little mess in the garage, but nothing a vacuum couldn't fix!

Chris quoted me fair price on a shelving project to go over my garage door. I was dreading hiring someone before Chris. He is very curteous, professional, and completed the job on time !! I will hire Chris again for future projects!

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

We just bought our first house and it had a brocade and popcorn ceiling in nearly every room of the house. I sent out a message via Thumbtack for getting the ceiling retextured and Jose was quick to respond. He gave a reasonable price estimate for the work that needed to be done. Jose and his team were so amazing! They did an amazing job on the ceiling and were so quick and efficient. We just painted the ceiling after they fixed it and it looks so good! I have no complaints at all! Also, Jose was really easy to communicate with and very quick to respond and schedule and complete the work with our tight schedule. Thank you!!

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.

As soon as he saw it, John had ideas for replacing our carport with a better engineered and more attractive design. It was weighing on the house roof and there was leaking over the entry. He was prompt, direct and informative, and supplied a schedule. His workers were pleasant and left things neat, removing old nails from the driveway every day. Any delays came with an explanation. The end result is a vast improvement, with fewer posts and a higher ceiling

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.

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.
