Wow! After a ridiculous 3 months of remodeling and dealing with people that just didn’t seem to want to do the job for which they were hired, it was like a fresh breeze when Christina returned my call inquiring about her company’s services. We arranged to meet at the remodeled home for an estimate. What a colossal mess it was, construction debris, paint everywhere and so mush drywall dust that it was barely breathable. After sizing up the job, she said “We can do this.” I asked, “All of it?” She replied, “I’ll take care of you.” No doubt she did! It ended up being a 3-day job. Each day, Christina and her crew arrived at the door at the specified time, the crew came in, no foolin’ around, Christina gave her crew instructions, everyone went to it and no one quit until the work for the day was completed (and we threw in extra stuff but not on purpose, and still Christina said “We got this!”) What I experienced was a company that does not ‘blow smoke!’ If Christina says she’ll “take care of you” – it’s done! And as hard as I worked her and her crew, before leaving each day, they still asked me what else needed to be done. Ms. Angela and Ms. “G” were such a joy and a pleasure to work with. A Positive Two-Thumbs Waayy, Waayy UP experience all the way around!!

I am a first time home buyer, and I was with Jeff throughout the entire inspection process.I really appreciated his patience with me, he answered all my questions breaking it down to the most basic terminology to help me understand the issues and how I could repair the damages if the seller refused to. My biggest concern in the process was the roof. I was speculating there was an issue and sure enough Jeff was good enough to find a leak in the roof! I am very grateful he found that. 100% I would recommend Jeff for a home inspection for all types of homes : new construction (before and after walls are put up), and older homes. His eye for the little details is extraordinary. Thanks for your help Jeff!

I would highly recommend these guys. Brentt Ergle and his team replaced my roof. He gave me a fair price and the work was completed professionally and on time. They went the extra mile to make sure that all of the debris and nails were cleaned up and Brentt personally walked the roof and verified that the job was done right. If you need to replace your roof, Palmetto construction is the company to choose!

He went well above and beyond my expectations. I would definitely call him again when his services are needed. His reports are clear and concise. Thank you Doug!

Charlestowne Workshop built our slide for our Winterfest event and did an amazing job. Josh and Kevin are very responsible and professional and did great work. Our slide was finished on time and much better built than the one previously!! They also came out and volunteered working the slide for Winterfest. They are all around good guys, easy to work with and would hire them again for any construction job we need completed.

Paul came out to replace a large wooden gate with a double gate for my property. From the estimate to the actual demo and construction, the process was quite swift and he was always in communication about progress and completion. Quality work at a fair price. I recommend his services to anyone looking for a great looking and soundly built fence/gate.

After getting several quotes to fix some foundation water damage, and sliding glass door replacement, I chose to go with Anthony. He is very knowledgeable and comprehensively showed me why it was happening. He advised a solution to fix the problem, rather than just replace the damaged materials. My time schedule was stringent, and Anthony delivered as he said. He kept me up to date with the progress while I was out of town and dealt directly with my realtor with required paperwork. It was a great experience dealing with Anthony. I would highly recommend Tri Square Construction for any general contractor projects.

We hired this company to do a whole house renovation for us. We could not be happier that we actually found a contractor that is honest and up front every step of the way. He was willing to meet with us before we purchased the property to walk through and help us design and know what our bottom dollar would be. As with any big project there were bumps in the road but Trey was the first one to call and meet with us to come up with a solution. His attention to detail, structural knowledge and honesty was refreshing. Communication is key to me and I have to say that is what impressed me the most. A lot of contractors disappear for days or weeks at a time but every phone call was answered promptly. He made sure we knew exactly what was going on every step of the way. This has been our easiest reno to date and I look forward to doing business with King Construction in the future.

Brian has performed work on three separate occasions on our home near London, Ohio. One garage addition, one complete bathroom remodel and one cedar wood siding repair.

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.  

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

How much does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.

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.
