Everything you could ask for and more! I usually never write reviews, but when it comes to hiring people and it companies to do work I felt important to share. We all know how difficult it is to find a good contractor. Elsayed came out on a Sunday and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Installed 3 toilets, dishwasher, garbage disposal, 2 faucet fixtures. Also corrected numerous plumbing issues in the process. From start to finish he let me know what was going on every step of the way. His recommendations were spot on as he came across other issues throughout the project. I always felt confident everything would get done right and did it ever! Never strayed from the up front and honest pricing. I’ve already rehired Elsayed to do more work in my home as OSA is a full service general contractor. Hire with absolute confidence!!!

Justin did a nice job replacing some exterior trim on my home. He was professional and patient, and willing to explain the specifics of the project. His work was excellent and the cost was reasonable. He paid particular attention to the small details. Justin was methodical and didn’t rush through the job like some contractors. Also, unlike many contractors, Justin is not afraid of climbing. I would highly recommend Justin to a friend for exterior trim repair or replacement.

I have worked with several contractors in the states of California, New York, and Massachusetts. I will rarely take the time to write a review, but when I come across a company that is exceptional I will take a moment to provide feedback. Steve and his team recently repaired my leaking roof in Cambridge, MA. Every single interaction I had with Steve was superb. I have never received such a thorough and professional proposal - this was very refreshing! Steve and his crew were able to get the work done in a timely manner before the next snowfall. I highly recommend Steve and team! He will be my go-to contractor from now on. /Gunnar (Cambridge, MA)

Todd was responsive and was the best value for dollar of other quotes. He made time for me under time constrains that others could not meet. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a quality contractor in the area. I sell real estate for a living and will recommend him to other home owners who need his services.

ER Construction is by far the best company we have ever had do work on our home. We have had some horrible experiences in the past with contractors who didn't show up, finish work promised, were sloppy and rude. ER Construction has finished all the work in our 1850 colonial and it has surpassed our expectations. The painting, floor refinishing, ceiling repair, and floor installation has been incredible and we are having them paint the exterior as well. We are very happy and satisfied and are recommending them to everyone we know!

Eduard with BBC just finished our bathroom and I felt like writing a review. A lot of times, people only write reviews for bad service or work that was poorly done, so I thought I'd take the time to recognize some excellent work. I was beyond impressed with BBC. After we had a lot of trouble with another contractor doing other work in our house, we knew we had to find someone different for our bathroom. We had at least 4 different contractors come over to check out the job and give us quotes. BBC actually came in at the best price. On top of that, he really worked with us to get it within our budget and exactly what we wanted it to look like. With 2 kids and limited funds, his flexibility was MUCH appreciated. Not one of the other contractors was willing to work with us in that way. I figured that since he was so great budget-wise and with such a great personality, he'd be difficult once the work got started. I was definitely wrong! He was beyond professional and stayed on top of every subcontractor to make sure they got their work done on schedule--unheard of in the industry! He will answer his cell phone any and every time we called. Eduardo actually finished our bathroom on schedule, he also finished within budget. I would definitely hire him again, and hopefully we have a chance to. I hope you have the same experience that we had....Thanks Eduardo our new bathroom looks great! James Sampaio

What a great find Corey was. I'm hard pressed not to leave him a good review because when you find a good contractor you want to keep 'em to yourself. But he's great. On-time, fair and great work. We only used Corey this first time for a couple of small furniture assembly jobs but fully plan on having him come back for some other more significant work.

Mr. DeOliveira was very professional. He gave me a quote and stuck to it. He showed up on time and did a great job installing s cement pad in the front of my house. He came back the next day and finished the work. Finally he had to come back a week later and repair the job after a truck backed into the house and damaged the concrete. Mr. DeOliveira came right out promptly and fixed the damaged pad at no charge. I would highly recommend DeOliveira Construction. Tom Steeves, Bellingham, MA

Very pleased with Bob and his crew. After two years of being jerked around by various contractors and friends who said they could "easily do this" we finally found RM Paolino Construction. Bob met with us on a Saturday and gave us a detailed estimate with some great cost-saving design changes for our kitchen and bathroom. We signed a contract that following Friday and by Monday morning our bathroom was gutted and on its way. What a relief it's been to deal with a real contractor after all time we wasted with other so called "professionals". Bob has kept us up to speed every step of the way and the bathroom looks great. Can't wait for kitchen to start. Highly recommend RM Construction to anyone looking for a professional, full service contractor who won't give you the run around!

We hired Justin to do a little framing for us and he has since done a multitude of other jobs around our house. He is very skilled and knowledgeable about all facets of construction. If there’s something you need done that’s outside of his expertise he will point you to reliable contractors you can trust. We will continue to utilize his services on this project and in future projects. Justin is very personable, trustworthy and fair on pricing. You won’t regret hiring him and, like us, you will likely be adding him to your contact list so you can reach him whenever you need help! He is sincerely a pure joy to work with. Thank you, Justin!

Go Green completed our home project on time and within our budget. We had a slider door and window replaced that required some reframing, removing and reinstalling siding, weather barrier and insulation. Frank and Ivan were true and experienced professionals- they arrived on time, were very polite, worked diligently, had a keen eye for detail and were very thorough. As with any project some unforeseen problems came up that could not have been anticipated. Julio worked with us to adjust the project’s hours; and Frank and Ivan offered a creative and aesthetically pleasing solution to a problem that would have sky-rocketed the overall cost. They wiped down everything before they left and completely cleaned up all debris. Finding a great contractor is always challenging for a homeowner. There are so many to choose from and most make claims that ultimately fall short or run well over-budget. Go Green was the most affordable and competitively priced company we consulted for our project; they exceeded ALL expectations and did a fantastic job! They will be getting repeat business from us.

We had Victor and Bay State redo our master bathroom. They did an excellent job and communicated what was happening each day on the project. Everything from the plumbing and electrical to the tile work and fixture installation, paint and woodwork was beautiful. Next time we need a contractor we will hire them again.

Richard was the first contractor to respond to my inquiry and within three days of my job request, Richard quoted the work, bought supplies and completed the job. I was also very grateful that he fixed two other things that weren't even on the task list and he didn't charge extra. I plan on calling Richard when I'm ready with a few more things that need fixing around my house.

JP came to look at one project for us and ended up taking care of two! We had a few different contractors come through, but JP was the most professional and had the best vision for completing what we were trying to accomplish. Everything went perfectly according to plan and we couldn't be happier with the finished result. We discussed costs up front and everything came in on budget. Very responsive to any questions or concerns that came up and had perfect suggestions for when we didn't know which direction to go in. Very happy with everything and won't hesitate to call for any future projects!

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.
