I had my roof replaced. Ben and his team were wonderful! He talked me through all of the issues with my existing roof, how he would fix everything, and explained all of the costs in the estimate. His estimate was lower than other contractors, and he was doing more than the others had proposed. They arrived on time, did the work in the proposed time and thoroughly cleaned up everything. Very pleased with the work , and will definitely hire him again!

I hired Kevin to help do some wiring, framing, and drywall so I would be able to mount a tv in a difficult location. He was very knowledgeable and was able to find some creative ways to get around a few unexpected problems he encountered once the wall was opened up. Another contractor I had come to look at the project told me it was no possible and left but now the job is done and my tv looks great with no wires showing.

I wish I could give more than five stars! We’ve had several highly-recommended and well-respected handymen and general contractors over the years and, without a doubt, Hill Home Improvement tops them all! I had an area of moisture-damaged drywall with mold that needed replacing, preferably as soon as possible because of the mold. Rob, the owner, responded to my Thumbtack inquiry in less than an hour. We spoke over the phone right away and he offered to come right over to provide an assessment and within 25 minutes of our call he was here! And it was 9:30 at night! - just goes to show Rob’s dedication and commitment to helping his clients. During his assessment, Rob was very professional, courteous, thorough, and knowledgeable of the problem at hand. What I appreciated the most was his unwavering integrity - he walked me through the plan and all costs; he wanted to complete the project properly while being very conscious of the cost for me. His prices were very very fair. He came the following day with one other worker. They were punctual, got right to work and were in and out so quickly - within an hour! The quality of work was exceptional. I couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much, Rob! Looking forward to many more projects together!

DRA is a Class Act. We had them inspect several windows to determine what needed to be done. They replaced a few windows in a very timely manner, Not to mention they showed up on time and kept their work area very clean. I've had a lot of experience with Contractors as I am a Contractor myself and I can honestly say DRA did a fantastic job from start to finish. I'll only be using them for any window needs from this point on. Thanks guys.

We needed some trim work done to cover a settlement crack along a tray ceiling that I had not been able to repair. I posted the request on Thumbtack and got a few replies with hourly rates. I contacted a couple of the contractors because I wanted to get more than an hourly cost to do the work. I described the scope of the work to each contractor and said that I wanted to get a more concrete estimate. Joe Valentino of Valentino Construction and Design estimated the job would take about 3 hours to do. I agreed on the hourly rate, and I told him I would get the material and prime and paint the wood to be ready for him. We agreed on a date. Due to circumstances beyond our control that both Joe and I had, the work got delayed by about a month. Finally, a date was set. Joe said he would get the wood and prime it. I agreed. Joe and his helper showed up at the appointed time and got to work. They were meticulous in their work. Furniture was covered or moved and tarps were laid over the carpeting. Four hours later the work was done. Beautifully, I may add. The trim work was done and Joe had even given it a couple of coats of paint to finish it. Both my wife and I loved it. They cleaned up and vacuumed the carpets. Furniture was put back in place. I asked Joe what the cost would be. He told me that we had agreed to the three hours of labor and the cost of materials so that would be it. Fantastic I thought; a man of his word. I would highly recommend Valentino Construction and Design to anyone needing carpentry work. They are friendly, do great work and are reasonable with their pricing. I give them 5 stars!

I hired Goggin Floor Installation and More to do several projects at my house to include installing a new kitchen floor, putting up light fixtures, remodeling 2 bathrooms, crown molding in the dining room, building a new pool deck, and outdoor electrical work. I could not be happier with the results of all of my projects!! Dave Goggin is the best handyman service I ever experienced, he is extremely reasonable, honest, trustworthy, and truly cares about each project he takes on, but more importantly, he cares about the customer. When I initially put out my request on Thumbtack for service, he contacted me right away, came out to my house the next day to give me an estimate, and had the estimate prepared that same night. I had other contractors come out as well to give estimates and it is now over a month later, all of my projects have just about been completed by Dave Goggins, and I am still waiting on estimates from the other contractors! Dave is also a great communicator. He walked me through every step of each project and always maintained communication. He has been in the business a long time so was able to walk in to every room or project and visualize exactly what I wanted then give me recommendations and feedback on what would work best given his experience. He also had the experience to give accurate on the spot estimates. I went with every recommendation that Dave had and I am very pleased with how everything turned out, way better than what I had could have come up with! I have Dave on speed dial now and I plan to use his services for every project I have around the house. I give him 5 stars!!

Firstly, I can't recommend Gary highly enough for any level of remodeling or renovation jobs you may be doing. We recently used Real Deal$ to remodel the kitchen, bathroom and a large portion of the living area in our home and have been delighted with the both the process and the results. Having worked in real estate/property development, I have worked with a number of other contractors and know when I'm working with someone who knows their business and takes genuine pride in the quality of the work they're doing- and that certainly describes Gary and the sub contractors he works with. Although I was pretty sure I wanted to use Real Deal$ based on a friend's recommendation, I wanted to get bids from other renovation contractors for our remodel just to be thorough. When compared with the other bids, I was very impressed with Gary's pricing and the level of detail outlined in his bid. Another big factor for me in choosing the right contractor was the lead time involved for the renovation. Most of the other contractors couldn't work within our time constraints- which was to have all of the remodeling completed in six weeks. We knew it would be tight but Gary absolutely pulled through for us. Both our kitchen and bathroom look amazing, and both are so much more functional than they were before. We were absolutely delighted (and surprised based on experience with other contractors) that the remodel stayed on schedule and within our budget. The remodel took the demolition of the kitchen, bathroom and part of the living space down to the studs and put it all back together again with new plumbing, electrical and heating. Gary helped source all of the new appliances and finishes through his vendors for the entire remodel which can be a handful if you haven't done it before. He provided us with numerous sources for our kitchen cabinetry also. All the work performed throughout the remodel is of the highest standard and we enjoyed working with Gary and all of his sub contractors. I also really appreciated how hard they all worked towards keeping the remodel on schedule and 'WITHIN OUR BUDGET'. Remodeling, or any kind of renovation, (whether big or small) can be very stressful- but having Gary as our contractor really helped alleviate the majority of our concerns and I will definitely be calling him for any future renovation needs we may have.

There are so many positive things to say about Randy, I don’t even know where to start! First of all, I’ve never dealt with a contractor who gives you a specific time when he will show up and then ACTUALLY show up at the time he said. This was not a coincidence, it happened 3 times in a row. Randy changed 11 doors by himself in 2 days in that blistering hot heat wave. But you know what Randy doesn’t do? He doesn’t complain, doesn’t intrude, doesn’t leave a mess, doesn’t cut corners, doesn’t nickel and dime you, doesn’t balk when you ask him questions and on top of all that is extreme pleasant and considerate. I watched him sweep the street where he was working so he left no dust behind. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Randy again. He’s on speed dial...

I renovated a porch to a 4 season room. All the brick had to be cut with a wet saw for a facade. The surfaces it was going on was uneven and a challenge. Daryl and his guys were great. I had a contractor quit and Darly picked up from there. He made corrections that if not noticed would of created major issues down the road and never complained. He just went with it and fixed it. His brick work was great. I highly appreciate his work and I would recommend him to anyone that needs a mason. Thanks again.

We hired Tom to do crown molding in our living room and dining room, which then extended to the kitchen and foyer. Because we discovered a slope in our ceiling we had to do some additional work to level it out. Tom has been great and we have been very pleased with the work he has done and extended the initial scope of the job to include some other projects. While there have been some challenges with scheduling, as expected with most contractors, and some projects took a little longer than expected, Tom has worked hard to complete them to our satisfaction and even made himself available on a weekend. Both my husband and I work from home so that afforded us flexibility with the schedule. We plan on hiring Tom again for future projects.

We initially had Tom out to give us an estimate on extending our fence so that we could fit our pool in our backyard and still meet the township requirements. By the time we got done talking, we also hired him to run the electric for our pool AND finish our huge basement. In two weeks, YES 2 weeks, they finished the fence, ran the electric, hauled away stuff from the basement that we didn’t want, AND not only finished our basement, but literally turned it into a basement that my entire family never wants to leave. Tom and his team were professional, responsive, and truly cared about every detail that they put into their work. They worked every single day (including weekends) to make sure that they not only meet their timeline, but exceeded our expectations. I have never had such a positive experience with a contractor and our family is completely IN LOVE with our gorgeous basement! Thank you Tom & team for making our basement dream come true at an extremely competitive price that we could afford. I’m almost certain we’ll be seeing you soon for whatever we decide our next project will be!

My wife & I are 1st time home owners, and our deck was hit hard by this winter’s harsh weather. Rotting wood, chipping paint, and dirt/fungus build up was looking bad. Thanks to Tyler, our deck was completely refinished with a HIGH attention to detail. It looks and feels brand new and was done at the BEST price in less than 2 weeks from when we first contacted Tyler. Tyler treated this project like it was his own deck, and that is a rare thing to find. Incredible work! In the past year we’ve worked with many electricians, carpenters, plumbers, and landscapers working on our new house. Tyler stands out as being above and beyond the best at communication and punctuality. He got started on the job quickly, and always gave us updates as to when he would be working and when the project would be complete. He made sure we knew exactly what was going on, and gave us lots of insightful suggestions and options on how to get the best results. Tyler is experienced and knowledgeable, and worked with high quality Benjamin Moore exterior stain. Other contractors I quoted just planned on using a cheaper exterior paint that would’ve degraded much more quickly. Tyler did extensive prep work to make sure our deck was ready to paint. He ensured there was proper draining, cleared out hidden dirt between the deck boards, properly addressed and filled all the gaps and cracks, and better secured the railing and privacy fence. Other contractors I talked to just planned a simple power wash and paint, which would not have been enough to give our deck a several more years of life. I look forward to hiring Tyler again in the future to help us with our various projects around the house. His depth of knowledge, attention to detail, and prompt communication makes him easily the best contractor we’ve worked with. If you have a project you need done with quality and a high attention to detail, my wife and I highly recommend Tyler!

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.
