Sam did a great job of patching and repairing drywall. Our move-in date was approaching fast and we needed someone to start ASAP. Sam started the same night and worked till 2am and then came back at 8:30am to put another coat and again at 6pm to put on finishing touches. He is a true professional and finished a project that would have taken us a week in less than 24 hours.

Mike has done several jobs for us. His work is of excellent quality, with exceptional finish work. His pricing is a very good value. He is very trustworthy, the only contractor that I have felt comfortable leaving alone in our home. His crew is great to work with, except the mason doing our tile work was rarely punctual, which was frustrating, but he does great work.

Benny was amazing to work with. We had tried other HVAC groups before. They didn't finish the job, they failed to show, they were rude. Benny was the opposite. He is a hard worker and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Benny to anyone without hesitation

We had the front of our house stuccoed. Geno and his crew did a great job. He showed up when he said he would. Finished the job promptly. And the work looks great. We hired him again for another job and had the same experience. Very friendly and professional. Didn't stop working until we were completely satisfied. Would highly recommend.

Austin was so kind and easy to work with. He quickly gave us a quote and then within a week he came out to start the job. He finished all of the work in 1 day and cleaned up everything after he was finished. He also charged half the price of other insulators. I would recommend him to anyone.

At first, I thought Ed was a slick guy, maybe not trustworthy because he was...well, super nice! It's not every day you find someone in the construction business that is extremely personable and isn't selling snake oil. Ed and his men were very professional. They showed up early, poured and finished my 250sqft concrete job, and even came back the following 2 days when the job could not be finished as anticipated. Ed is a man of his word. I would recommend Ed and his team if you are looking for honest work, for an honest and fair price.

Olly was great to work with. He projected one day to finish. Even though the job presented an unforeseen challenge he stayed late, finished on time and it looks great. Not the least expensive but worth it for a professional job.

While everything is a work in progress, the new electric line for our freezer is completed and I am very happy. This was the main reason for hiring. We are now in the process of finishing the garage.

I was so impressed with the quality and professionalism that this company brought to my home. He made me feel comfortable and kept me in the loop every step of the way. There was no mess when the company was finished with the job. I would use this company again for future work. I can't say enough on grateful and happy I am with the renovations he has completed. Thank you so much.

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.
