I hired Stephen last summer to install a screen door on the front door of the house. The door was not designed to have a screen door, so he had to design a frame build out to accommodate the screen door and handle the stress of the door opening and closing. He did a great design, made the build out look like part of the original door frame, and installed the door. Terrific job and a great person to work with. I'm already building out my list of other jobs I need done on the house and will definitely be calling Stephen to get them done.

We worked with Steve and Joe for an asphalt roof, soffit ventilation, and a roof repair on a sun room from a fallen tree. Steve was great to work with and he was the most communicative of the 10 or so roofing estimates we inquired about. I asked many technical questions as I am an engineer and very detail oriented by nature. They did everything they said they would do and did a quality job. Steve stuck out from the beginning as he called our town building department to find our local codes to find out what was legal as other conractrors were saying that you could put a metal roof over 2 layers of asphalt roof. The roof and sunroom repair was done over 2 days and they cleaned up the yard pretty well. Steve was always easy to get a hold of and really had awesome customer service. They are not the cheapest gig in town but you can trust them and they do quality work. I would hire again. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about my experience

Bob installed a new mount and US flag over my garage removing my old rusted mount. He did this for free and within 5 minutes because he knew it would be quick and easy. I will be hiring him for other major projects around my house. Thank you!

TODD ARRIVED TEN MINS EARLY READY TO CHECK OUT MY PROJECT. HE ADVISED ME TO FIX THE GUTTER AND DRAIN PIPE THAT WERE DAMAGED FROM THE STORM TODAY AND AND ORDER PARTS TO REPAIR THE SIDING. WE AGREED ON THE WORK AND PRICE. HE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB. AFTER HE FINISHED, I ASKED HIM A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT MY GARAGE DOOR OPENER AND BEFORE I ASKED HIM , HE WAS CHECKING IT TO SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. HE SPENT OVER AN HOUR LOOKING AT IT AND CHECKING THE ELECTRICAL SWITCH. HE LEFT WITH THE INTENTION OF RESEARCHING IN ON INTERNET. I MENTIONED A FEW OTHER PROJECTS AND I THINK HE WILL BE LONG-TIME FRIEND AS WELL AS MY "GO TO PERSON FOR ADVICE AND FUTURE WORK". LET ME CLOSE BY SAYING THAT I HAVE NEVER MET A MORE FRIENDLIER OR MORE HONEST PERSON WILLING TO HELP THAN TODD.

Jeff is a talented and creative woodworker. He has accomplished several projects for us in a house built around 1756. From restoring an antique window to matching original woodwork and trim to a built-in media center that fits with the room, his work is always professional and top quality. Added bonus, he is a genuine pleasure to work with.

Mike was the only one to reply to our request and he replied back within an hour (good). We sent him some photos of our snowed-in driveway - he got back to us with a quote (good). We arranged for him to come at noon and he called to let us know he was on his way (good). Arrived on time and proceeded to clear out our entire driveway from the garage door to the street (good). We had some special side areas to be cleared and Mike did them at our request (good). Overall very happy with his work and would highly recommend him.

KZM rebuilt our deck and garage stairs and did an excellent job for a very fair price. Ralph St. George was very easy to work with and did his best to satisfy his customer. He arrived on time and was very neat. We are very pleased with the job and plan to use him on future projects. I would highly recommend him to others.

Mr. Andriello came to my condo to access an ice dam in a 6 unit building. He gave me a quote later the same day and was prepared to work the following day. He arrived at the designated time and completed the job within 4 hours. He removed all ice from the walkways that had fallen from the roof. In addition, he sprinkled ice melt on the walkways to ensure the safety of the owners. I am impressed with Mr. Andriello's professionalism and attention to details (applying ice melt). I recommend his services.

My husband and I wanted to rehab our home adding a 2 car garage with master bed and bath. We contacted Baystate Group on a recommendation from a friend. After meeting Victor directly and seeing his completed projects we hired him and I must say it was the best decision we ever made. Victor and his team made this typically stressful situation smooth and stress free. The quality of work is top notch and Victor was very professional, helpful and wonderful to work with. Victor understood our vision and executed it and then some all while staying within our budget. I would highly recommend Baystate Group.

I hired Joe to install some interior and exterior doors for me. I never waited long for Joe to respond to questions and he was very clear in his communication regarding timeline and approach, etc. The work Joe did was top notch and he made the work look easy. Always pleasant to deal with, I would/will hire Joe again for future jobs.

I have been using KOD for repairs to my apartments for over a year now. They have work both inside and outside my buildings, including drywall, electric, bathroom renovation, window replacement, roofing and siding. The quality of the work has always been excellent, and completed on schedule. They have been happy to work around the tenants' schedule as needed. The cost have always been within the initial estimate.

Bob “the builder” as my family and I refer to him is my go-to contractor for any work we need done. Bob built our entire 3000 sq ft house 14 years ago and we have had him back several times since for new projects. He is a quality builder, honest, reliable and reasonably priced. When we wanted an extra 2 car garage, we called Bob and he constructed an exterior 2 car garage for us, which turned out beautiful. He worked with us on the size, style and layout and made sure it complimented our main house structure. Years later, when wind storms caused a tree to fall through my garage, I called Bob again to make the repair. He did everything from fixing the soffit, siding and gutters to reshingling the roof. As always, he was professional, responsive and understanding as I worked through the cumbersome insurance company process. Recently, I hired Bob again to build a large elevated composite deck. His workmanship is sound and of high quality, his prices are reasonable and I highly recommend him to others. Bob has been building for a long time and he knows his stuff. He and his crew show up promptly every day (even when it’s 98 degrees out!) and I appreciate that they work hard and make consistent progress until the job is done. He communicates with me regularly to keep me informed on the project. I continue to be happy with Bob’s work and will have him back again when we have another project for him. Thank you Bob for doing great work whenever we need it.

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.
