"He even said to keep it if we went with another contractor so that they could do it exactly how we wanted it! He was the only one who provided us with a detailed design, schedule, and proposal breakdown and he did so without charging us a penny! I was sceptical initially as the other contractors were pushy, the other quotes were vague, hard to understand, and they were reluctant to explain which is why meeting with Lightning and seeing the 3D Rendering which they explained in detail to us was such a relief. I never imagined the finish product would be even better than the 3D rendering either, but when he knocked on my door to ask me to take a look on the final day, I felt like I was seeing my husband dream and my dream together for the first time even though I had been there the whole time! We started out just getting a new composite patio even though they gave us a proposal for everything, but we ended up using them for our entire outdoor space after the patio turned out perfect and better than the picture. We did a full outdoor kitchen with a brick pizza oven, grill, sink, and refrigerator, a huge travertine patio with a covered pergola and mosquito screen, several ceiling fans and power outlets, a fire pit with built in seating, a water feature with a waterfall and coy pond, and in-ground spa and could not be more pleased with everything. My husband is even wanting to get them to come back to do our indoor kitchen counters in the same concrete after seeing Billy's custom job with the outdoor countertop and bartop and we have very nice marble in there already Ha! They even mounted and installed my husband's misting system and televisions at no charge and told me "they couldn't deliver an unfinished product to us that we could not use and relax with right away." I was speechless to say the least. The only thing we are unhappy about is not having more work for that young man and his team as my husband and I haven't had such an exciting experience at home in years. If you are considering any outdoor improvements or projects you need to email me as this review does not do Lightning and our experience with them justice at all. It is very apparent that they do this because they love it as they treated our dream as if it was their own! My email is mkmizer1957@gmail.com. If you are hiring Lightning then be sure to ask for Billy as he really is an incredibly talented young man and took such good care of us, our property, and made our dream a reality! Thank you Lightning and Thank you Billy for such a wonderful job well done! Sincerely, Mr. & Mrs. James Edward & Mary Katherine Mizer MKMizer1957@gmail.com"

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.
