Brad is AWESOME! He ran electric for us in our garage and installed new garage opener. He did a great job and even came back out due to faulty equipment - not his fault! Very professional and trustworthy! HIGHLY recommend!

Jason was great to work with. Very responsive to emails. Very reasonable and up front with cost. We had him replace a sliding glass door, a front entry door with sidelights and a standard exterior door for our garage. He also repaired and adjusted our existing rear entry door. The man is fast and everything looks great. Will definitely hire again and highly recommend him for your future projects.

Mike built a tile walk-in shower in our basement. This involved moving a toilet which I didn’t know could be done. It turned out beautiful. He also completely renovated our master bathroom. Again, he was able to solve building issues and give us exactly what we wanted. We now have a large soaking tub with porcelain tile walls and surround. He handled all the electrical and plumbing. Outside resources handled the custom cabinets and vanity tops, and Mike brought it all together. He also installed a new cabinet in our laundry room with a new sink, faucet, and garbage disposal. There were other jobs that he did for us around the house. Some were updates to a 30-year old home, and the others were embellishments. One of the most important things about Mike is that we felt comfortable with him in our house even when we weren’t home. He is an honest family man. One thing that could be better—paperwork. Getting all the paperwork and receipts was a slow process. But I know he is converting to a new computerized system to handle this, so I would not expect this to be a problem in the future.

I had hired another Thumbtack "carpenter" to build me a set of stairs for my home. The City of Knoxville Building Inspector REJECTED my steps TWICE. I knew the man I hired could not do the job"up to code" I again went with Thumbtack,,, to find someone who could build me 6 stringer wood steps that would pass code,,,and look good! Mr Seay answered my prayers,,,and assured me that they would pass. And you know what,,,they did!! And they look good. I've got the best looking,,built to last many,many years,,,front porch steps on the block! For sure,,,if you need steps,,in the city of Knoxville,,,get him first. And save yourself the expense and humiliation of having to do it over. And over. He also has experience with other areas of home repair/improvement that I will be using in the near future,,,without the worry of having to redo it. So happy to have done business with him and his workers.

I have known Danny's work for many years. He has and can do many varieties of building, remodeling and all facets of construction. But Danny's greatest talent is in his designing abilities. He can literally take a project from thought, into and through the design phase, then complete the project with the utmost distinction and integrity. Danny Sanders defined is a grade of excellence.

We hired Jim to do some work on our rental property. We sent him an email and he responded right away! He replaced rotten wood on the exterior deck, replaced Sheetrock in the garage ceiling that had some water damage from an old leak, replaced the wood on the bottom frame of a French door , painted and sealed, and a few other small jobs/routine maintenance the home needed. Jim sent us pictures of all the completed work. He was very fast/efficient and fair/reasonably priced. Very happy we chose to hire Jim!

The work was completed on time and quality was great. The punctuality was important to me and they arrived on time and completed my job in the time stated. We did not have to pay the invoice until we had time to inspect the work to make sure it wa satisfactory to our liking. It was!! I definitely would recommend The Building Group to my family and friends .

Epperson Design & Construction showed professionalism from the initial phone call and assessment. They were upfront about the extent of the work needed to complete the job, provided a quote promptly and worked easily with us when asked to change the scope of the project. Epperson Design & Construction focused on accuracy and percision when making sure the floor repair was build correctly and built to last. They worked tirelessly to complete the project and when issues pushed out the completion date of the project, they willing kept long hours to complete the project and at the originally agreed upon cost. We had a necessary deadline for completion (renter's move in date) and while it was extremely close, Epperson Design & Construction made it happen.

Very professional and punctual. It made what could have been a complete disaster a success. I had my carport cleaned and organized along with flower beds weeded. I then seen that my upcoming event was going to be successful due to the neatness and organizational structure. I have them cleaning house and out buildings as well. I can now focus on other things because they took care of my dirty work. Highly recommended.

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.
