Our beautiful finished basement flooded twice in 48 hours during successive record breaking torrential rainstorms. My husband and I (not young people) were a tag team all day and night, taking turns with a borrowed wet vac, trying to keep up as gallons of water gushed in. We hauled books, artwork, and electronics up in shopping bags to the first floor. Turns out the sump pump had quit! The restoration company we had hired to help with the dry out had no plumbers on staff and couldn't do anything to help until water stopped coming. We had a break in the weather with more rain on the way. We put out a call via Thumbtack and got a quick response from Glenn, who sent out plumber Joe within a couple of hours. Joe was great: kind and friendly and efficient. He replaced the sump pump, the water stopped coming in, and we pretty much went to bed and slept round the clock. Glenn and Joe are our heroes! Joe says they do all sorts of handyman projects- not just plumbing. We will hire them again.

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

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.

Jose repaired the drywall in our basement that had been damaged by a broken water pipe. He did a fantastic job of repairing the drywall and re texturing. He's very professional and I'll be calling on him in the future.

They have been by far not only the best masonry company I’ve worked with, the have been the best company to work with since I’ve been flipping houses. I’m not just saying this, Makaia and his team earned the rating!

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!

John Rank helped with remodeling our basement. It was a major job that included changing a large crawl space into a living room. It took about 12 weeks to complete. John is great to work with. He is very organized and keeps everything running smoothly. He is very good at keeping engineers. individual contractors and inspectors coming/going on schedule. He kept us informed of any issues that came up. The quality of work is great - we are so happy with the finished area, especially the built in cabinetry that John did himself. The only thing that could have been better is to have more time to order specific finishes and to be more involved in the design of the entertainment center.

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.

The project was replacing a sliding glass door with a man door, drywall work and partitioning off the laundry area with sliding wood doors. In addition he was able to make upgrades in a shower that was previously done for us by another party. It was a very good experience in working with Spencer and his team. The work was completed within the time frames that were given at the start of the project. Spencer was willing to adapt to our input when we had ideas that didn't quite match what were in our original discussions. We would definitely hire him again if we have any additional projects

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.

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.
