Glenn was very efficient, did the job quickly and as far as I can tell, he did a good job. He extended the gas line to our gas dryer in the basement. I've used the dryer three times since he came over and everything seems to work accordingly. Thank you, Glenn!

Services provided were electrical in nature: change all light switches & outlet plugs; install new closet light; install new basement lights on existing circuit; install new dedicated light switch for additional kitchen light and so on. Additionally, he helped repair and re-install door handles and locks in a 2925 craftsman bungalow. Work was done professionally, methodically and efficiently. Prompt, good communication and a pleasure to work with. Will use again for future projects

I asked Chris Wilhelm of Compass Home Repair and Renovation to install a utility sink in my basement. I had recently done a renovation restoring a bedroom, bathroom suite along with adding a washer and dryer for a a tenant. I didn't think about a utility sink, as part of that renovation which is a useful thing to have for larger and dirty clean-up projects. I only had a sink. There was no drain, no spigot or faucets. He dropped by my home to get an idea of the job's specifics and returned a week later. Chris installed the sink with a few hiccups along the way (such as trying to figure out how to turn off the water--not his fault--the recent plumbing was unlike anything he'd ever encountered. The sink works beautifully, and he integrated it next to the washer/dryer without taking up any additional space in this storage area. Best of all is the hose attachment, which insures that hard-to-reach spaces can be reached without effort. I've already hired Chris to do some restoration of my porch steps, which is due to be done this Saturday.

David replaced my baseboards in my entire basement. He performed the work quickly and it looks great. The price was reasonable and he kept the brand new carpets down there clean. I would hire him again for future projects.

Joe and his team work very quickly and professionally, and they don't cut corners on quality. My basement turned out much better than I had ever imagined and Joe even helped with the colors, flooring, and tile. I definitely recommend him for your job if you are looking for good quality and hard workers!!

Start to Finish Construction remodeled our daylight basement after a very bad flood situation. They removed and hauled away all the damaged carpet and drywall. All new drywall was installed along with all new wood trim, carpeting and vinyl flooring. We were very happy with the end result and Chad added some very nice touches to the trim work at no extra charge. We had one small issue that was resolved very promptly. I would use them again without hesitation!

I call John from All In One to give me a estimate on some dry rot repairs in my room and in the basement. He came over that day and gave me a estimate and ended up repairing and painting. We were very happy with his work and will recommend him to all our friends.

Marsh LLC procured and installed 5 new windows for my basement. They communicated well and encouraged my questions and involvement decision making. They also worked quickly once the custom sized windows were ready. I was left with a tiny bit of clean up but all in all the windows look really great and I would definitely work with them again.

Matt responded right away. We traded information on email. He came to my house to look at the project I needed done. We agreed on a fare price (digging 4 well holes for basement windows). He was able to bring a small crew and begin work the very next day. They worked very fast, cleaned up after and I was very satisfied.

David Yoo remodeled my kitchen and bathroom for me and finished my basement for rentals. I asked for granite counters and new cabinets installed in the kitchen and it turned out amazing! For my bathroom he took out my old fiberglass shower and I had him install a new stand up shower completely tiled along with a new vanity and built-in's. The basement got a full remodel including an egress window, beams and bathroom and kitchen. Everything turned out beautiful and he is very professional and knows what he is doing. I would recommend him to anyone looking to remodel their place or their rental units.

Davis of Rogue Remodel did a very difficult basement foundation repair in a tight timeline within a real estate transaction. It was done on time, on budget and with exception quality. As a real estate broker, I was blown away as this doesn't happen often with most contractors. These guys are fantastic and I have used them a number of times since with the same result!

We have a rental property and I needed a Handyman to fix a tumble dryer for me. I was in urgent need of a qualified professional. I was told about Thumbtack and to try using them. My experience of using the site and finding Erdman's was great. While Larry was fixing the dryer I asked him to take a look in the downstairs apartment where there had been a water leak in the basement due to a bad storm. He took a look and told me what needed to be done to fix the problem. The work involved fixing a down spout, removing a small tree, mortar berm on side of house, used wire and re-bar for cementing inside of the basement, repaired slider leak and finish the job off with dry lock. He also laid a new laminate floor in downstairs bedroom. I found Larry to be honest and trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable,he did an excellent job for me. He also tried hard to do the job in less hours and so saved me some money. I cannot say enough good things about Erdman's and will be using them as my Handyman service from now on. Larry and his team rock.

Ruben of Advantage Construction is great to work with! Three years ago, we had him paint the exterior of our home and he did a beautiful job. Last spring, he finished a room in our basement, which included installing an egress window, building a closet, plastering the ceiling and walls, installing lighting and doors, and painting. He always does careful work at a fair and reasonable cost. He's also very honest and he and his crew couldn't be nicer.

" We purchased a house & blended our families. We needed the unfinished basement remodeled as quickly as possible to add another bedroom. Dustin finished a beautiful bedroom for us in no time flat. He worked in less than desirable conditions hauling sheet rock in the snow for us. We are so grateful and impressed with his craftmanship. Windows and doors are next on our home improvement list for 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.
