Installed a large new vanity with top and hooked up the plumbing to it. Sounds like a simple job but for one the drain location in the wall was in a very awkward position in relation to the sink and Glenn used all of the right fittings to make a strong and lifelong connection. Second the vanity top was about 1" too large for the opening meaning he had to remove a cabinet in order to get it in place. A lot of extra work was put in and I didnt hear one complaint. I have flipped multiple houses and worked in commercial construction for 10 years and he has been one of the easiest people to deal with, especially if something unexpected comes up (which it always will). Thanks Glenn!

I've worked with a dozen contractors over the last year on an extensive home remodel and the best experience I've had, by far, has been with Zeev. His motivation is 100% to create a finished product that I will be proud of and he did so in the process of executing an extremely complex electrical plan. I could not recommend Zeev highly enough.

We were very pleased with Compass/Chris Wilhelm. He did great work on our baseboards and fixings some issues another contractor has messed up. He showed up when he said he would and left a clean job site. We'll hire him again for sure.

A&C Innovative Contractors replaced our existing backyard cedar fence in West LInn. The quality of work was excellent and the crew worked quickly and kept to the schedule in spite of finding large rocks and concrete where the post holes were dug . They also made an attractive arbor over the gate which adds a highlight to the project. This was all done for a very competitive price. We intend to call on A&C Innovative Contractors for further work in the future.

Tim is excellent! And he did a fantastic job! We have worked with him before (this is our third time), recommend him to friends and family, and will definitely work with him again. Way back in 2013 we did a full home remodel and those contractors did a dreadful job on the walls. The texture was huge and gloppy, out of character with our 1945 home, and just poorly done. I'd been giving it the evil eye for years, but assumed it was cost prohibitive to fix. In comes Tim to save the day! He primed the terrible textured walls of our entire living area: Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Room, Hallway, and Bathroom. Then he did three coats of smooth skim coat to get rid of the terrible texture. Then we had him prime and paint the finished product. I can't even tell you how beautiful it looks!! We are SO grateful to finally have clean, consistently textured, beautiful walls. It seems like a small thing, but it makes all the difference feeling comfortable in our house. In the midst of planning this project, we also had a plumbing issue in the basement that required some drywall repair. Tim made it happen without a second thought.

We used Eric and his team for an almost 2.5 month project after moving back into our old house that was rented out for several years. Initially we were only going to use them for external and internal painting and cabinet refinishing, but we quickly found that we liked working with them and appreciated Eric's commitment, his obvious knowledge and attention to detail which led to us hiring them to replace our flooring and other various projects around the house from the shower door installation, carpentry work to smaller electrical work. We lived in the house while Eric's team did the work, which can get pretty overwhelming. They communicated well, respected our privacy and worked with kids nap times, weekend trips, etc. I can honestly say that I could not imagine this project going any better considering the circumstances. We were satisfied with the final product and we found the pricing to be reasonable. We found especially the painting job to be top notch, this is definitely their specialty. Eric also wrapped some beams and accent walls in cedar. Those turned out awesome as well. I highly recommend using those guys for any project, big or small. They have pride in their work and at the end you will not feel taken advantage of, which is too often the case when working with other contractors.

We have been waiting for 3 weeks to get pad pouredfrom other contractors I contacted Makaia and he responded and poured my pad in the same week. He was a very professional guy. He showed up when he said he was going to and done a excellent job on our concrete patio that we had poured. The price was very reasonable and I would recommend him and if I need more work done in the future I will go with his team. Happy customer in Ridgfield!!!!

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.

Paul/Home Run Construction are a HOME RUN...make it a GRAND SLAM! So professional and easy to work with and outstanding communication throughout the project. Paul takes pride in his work and he completed my project timely and on budget. As an attorney I see clients and cases with all kinds of flakey contractors who run over budget and do shoddy work. Paul is NOT one of those! Solid and good man who does excellent work! I can say without hesitation that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Paul and Home Run Construction and will continue to look to him for future projects.

Duane was an awesome find!! His exceptional attention to detail was exactly what we needed! His knowledge was invaluable when discussing different options for each phase of our project. His diverse abilities allowed us to hire only one contractor which is time saving at the very least. He was able to take care of our entire project. We would hire him again in an instant!

Although our project is not yet complete, we have found John Rank and his team to be extremely efficient and timely, very accommodating, affordable and very professional. Its not easy to find good general contractors in this industry, but we believe we have found one. I'll make sure to post another review when our whole project is done.

The fellows from RM BIRD were fantastic! They listened to my needs, worked with my meager budget to remove mold & re-tile a tub/shower stall, were very responsive in starting the project & finished with great efficiency. There was a slight issue with the grout settling & leaving a couple of small holes, so I called Steve. He came out the next day after his regular work day was done to repair it. I was impressed by that bit of professionalism. It was my first time hiring a contractor; it won't be the last time hiring RM BIRD. Thanks guys!

We got a couple quotes and Jose gave an extremely competitive price and estimated less than the time frame of other contractors. In the end, he spent 3 days on the project, which was skim coating the ceilings in three rooms. He took great care with our property and furniture, and he checked in with us throughout the project to make sure we were satisfied. Overall, Jose was communicative, honest, and skilled. We would recommend him.

I hired Tim and Matt with New Legacy to update 2 bathrooms, a large remodel on one bathroom and a minor remodel on another. They helped with the design process, came up with a great plan. Helped us with some choices on finishes, and it looks great. They exceeded expectations in every area!!! I own a contracting company myself and in 20 years of working in the Portland area with literally dozens of contractors New Legacy is the best I have worked with. Daily updates were given, timelines exceeded, house kept clean. I could go on and on. If you are contemplating hiring a contractor and have a chance to work with New Legacy do it! They are AWESOME!

It was great working with Oscar. He communicated with me, showed up when he said would, did good efficient work, and cleaned up before he left. Seems basic, right? So many contractors don't and it's very refreshing to find someone who operated so professionally.

We bought a new home and wanted to extend our concrete patio. James came out and looked at our patio, gave us a detailed, professional proposal (and the best pricing). He even explained what to be careful if we decide to hire a different contractor. After we decided to go with him, James and his crew came and did a very professional job, including cleaning up. We are very happy and would definitely recommend James and his company!

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.
