Jake was great to have on the job. A difficult job - building a garden stairway that ran about 30 yards and rose 12 yards over uneven ground, AND took three or four turns on the way. Jake proved he can build, and do it with precision. He is also very flexible in his dealing, unlike so many others. The steps have been admired by neighbors and by visitors. After that he did a lot of work building timber walls to retain our very sloping garden, plus a couple of timber decks We'd have him back for any job, anytime.

I had ROSS refresh my bathroom, including installing new fixures and some general wall repair. They did a great job and got it done in the estimated time frame. The worked very hard to make every detail perfect. Quality work, I'd hire them again!

I needed to have 16 linear ft of interior wall removed to open up the house. Additionally, there would be new drywall and repair requirements, flooring, and paint to finish the project. Jim was not the cheapest of the 3 quotes that were offered, but, as an experienced home builder for 30+ years, he impressed, was methodical and scientific in his project approach, is insured, and the pictures of the work that was completed in his portfolio were great. The project did have scope creep, and the cost adjustments were transparent and fair. The project came out to my satisfaction. Professional, meticulous, OCD (it’s great for a contractor), polite, and trustworthy; both individually and in his resourcing and supervision of subcontractors for the areas not under his direct scope (floor and paint). I would also like to add, that during this project, I unfortunately broke my tibia, being immobilized till now. Jim was courteous, ensured area safety, cleanliness, and even when I needed personal aid (an occasional run to the fast food joint) he did it. He cares about his work and his clients.

David put in a retaining wall for our house. This was challenging in that our house is the first house one sees upon entering the fifty-year-old San Marcos neighborhood. We are the new homeowners and I did not want to disrupt the look of the neighborhood with a garrish wall. David and his crew built a beautiful natural-blending wall that now enhances our house and entry into Spring Lake neighborhood. His crew showed up every day on time and were professional. David turned the job around on time. We have received many compliments from neighbors. We are hiring David Brown again at beginning of 2016 for backyard enhancements.

Project work involved removing and replacing, (using similar type materials and painted finish), the attached exterior, wood stepped, backstairs, leading from the patio floor level on the house, down onto the backyard, using same concrete foundation footers, as installed by original builder. Also, project included side effort to secure exterior wall dryer vent and repair of side access gate latch. All work was quality effort, professional, on time and within budget. I would readily retain CHS services again and strongly recommend their participation in any, small to medium size, home or commercial small business repair/refurbish project. Tony Sampson, project manager, is excellent to work with and CHS performed in an excellent manner. Job, well done!

    Justin is the definition of professionalism. He came out and repaired water damaged load bearing studs that got damaged due to improper installation of roof flashing by the builder. The repair required removal of exterior siding, flashing etc as well as removal of interior drywall. When he was all done you could not tell that anything had ever been removed. Great guy, hard working and honest.

      Our new backyard was clay and bedrock. Drainage was a major problem. We spoke with several 'designers' who offered generic suggestions without utilizing the unique features of the yard. None had solid ideas on drainage. TruCare helped us get the builder to understand how a proper french drain is built and resolve other drainage problem areas. TruCare listened to our thoughts, provided creative solutions, and built a backyard we can enjoy for years.

      I had a nice/newer home that was not selling due to some functional and cosmetic issues. Don expertly advised me on issues that needed functional fixes/improvements as well as how to enhance the curb-appeal. He did this with my limited budget carefully in mind to ensure that money put in the home would be returned through a quick and higher sales price. His work included adding a garage entry to the home, floor tile, retaining wall, gravel driveway, cement walkway, landscaping, shutters, painting and a few other items. The record rains also impacted the work, but Donald worked through the challenges per the budget and plans. I highly recommend Texas Classic Custom Homes & Remodeling and will not hesitate to use them again for construction and remodeling needs.

      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.
