This is my second project with Tony completed for me. Tony completed my walk -in closet so beautifully that I wanted him to transform my basement into my dream home office. The basement was cold and boring. Tony made it warm and inspiring. He walked through the space and asked a lot of questions to understand what I wanted and made many great suggestions that were far more greater than mine with his experience. Tony took my vision and again made it into an amazing reality. Tony covered all the walls with sheet-rock and put carpet on the floor and built all the shelving for the office. He completed the project in a timely manner, was professional and fair with his price and I felt completely safe having him in my home. For a single woman that is very important. I HIGHLY recommend Tony! The next project I do in my home I will definitely be contracting him.

Michael was hired to remove and old utility sink/faucet in our basement, install a replacement sink/faucet, replace a failed washer shutoff, replace a spot light fixture on the back of our house that had fallen off, and fix some problems with our vinyl siding. Michael showed up on time and completed each and every job to our TOTAL satisfaction, all in a single day! His work is of the highest quality. Michael is quite knowledgeable about all aspects of home repair. I would not hesitate to hire him for any future projects. I've already given his number to multiple family members and friends who need an honest and capable contractor for their projects. THANK YOU MICHAEL!

If only every tradesman had Sams work ethic, life would be easy. I was looking for someone to drywall and spackle my 1100 sqft basement. Sam came out on a Saturday to do the survey, only three hours after the job was posted. Great guy, personable, honest and hard working. I was away the following week, however we agreed a very reasonable cost and he agreed to start two days later, while I was away. At the end of the first day he sent me photos of the finished drywall, fantastic. His team then came to do spackling over the next three days and the job was complete, with photos of progress been sent all the while. On Friday the team returned to perform the clean up, and I returned to a basement ready to paint. I could honestly not have found a better guy if a tried. I would have no hesitation recommending Sam and his team to anyone

Had a leak in my basement. Not sure if the water was coming in from outside (due to a roof issue) or whether there was a plumbing issue inside my house -- Matt diagnosed the problem in 15 minutes; went out and purchased the materials at Home Depot and came back and fixed the problem the same day. I would absolutely recommend Matt. In fact, I decided to replace my bathroom sink and faucet and Matt is going to be doing that work.

Had a gas line leak found by pgw, so I had subzero come out for the repair. Came out right away which is very important and the quote given was great. Not only did Benny fix the leaking pipe but also performed a entire gas leak inspection in my basement. Before you get a quote anywhere else be sure to keep subzero on top of the list

Paul Fisher is very professional, polite, and did an excellent job. We hired him to fix our front door which was completely stuck, our basement door which was stuck and lost the door handles, as well as our primary project television wall mounting. Paul Fisher completed the project quickly and perfectly. The television looks great on the wall and is completely secured to the wall mount brackets. If you need a handyman for any jobs hire Paul Fisher!

A difficult install of a plastic drop ceiling in the basement. The real bonus was he solved an electrical problem, and the results are terrific. Drywalling is my job, Jimmy did the ceiling, the electric, and installed the lighting.

After interviewing a couple of contractors, we were thrilled to find Chris. He was always prompt, professional, and reasonably priced. Our basement went from a concrete unfinished space, to a beautiful new room for our family to enjoy. Chris is an excellent craftsman, and he made sure that the new renovation fit beautifully with our historic 1700's home. We highly recommend Chris.

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.
