I bought my home in July of 2012. The home didn't have a pantry. I had a space that was going to waste and was of no use at all in my dining room. Dan designed a pantry and used the existing wall beside the refrigerator which separated the dining room from the kitchen. Dan designed and build a pantry for that space. He kept a small part of the molding and fitted the pantry into the molding on two sides so that it appears that the pantry was built into the house as if it was original. I can't say enough good things about the workmanship on this pantry. He noticed that the door had more space at the top than at the bottom. He removed the door and adjusted it so that it fits snugly and perfectly. I would gladly recommend Dan for any design or repair work on any job, large or small. The home also had the original builder toilets in it. I had Dan replace both the master and guest bath toilets. He noticed that one of the toilets had a very small leak. Dan removed the new (and never been used) toilet and took it back to Lowe's and got a new replacement toilet and installed it. This shows the attention to detail that Dan exercises in all that he does.

I found these guys working in the neighborhood while jogging... I needed some serious work done on my front yard, including a retaining wall. Talked to Jeff on the job there were working on near by and he dropped by later that day... we made a plan and these guys executed with brilliance on time and on budget!! What I loved most is all the guys working on the job seemed really happy to be working and doing what they do, I like good energy around me. Alterra did a fantastic job and I highly recommend them to anyone needing any kind of landscaping. See before and after photos below. Hector Batiz

The fence they installed is beautiful, very professionally, and carefully installed. I was very impressed with the quality of the work. Also, Len, Dana, and the fence builders are very nice and pleasure to work with.

John was a rock star contractor for us. He showed up perfectly on-time, knocked out our accent walls project in no time and did a spectacular painting job...and didn't even have to use blue tape. His steady hand was incredible to watch. I'm looking for more projects for him to complete now.

Grissom Construction has done a number of jobs for us and for my mother over the last 10-15 years. John Grissom has personally overseen the work done. His high standards have always resulted in complete satisfaction of the work we have contracted with him to perform. He gives accurate estimates and completes work within budget. Work has ranged from designing and building a retaining wall-to building a large covered patio with attached storage-to construction of a pergola-to a complete interior remodel/repair of my mother’s home. His insight and background led him to foresee a potential problem with drainage when pouring our patio and proceeded to adjust the design to avert a problem before it occurred...this has proven to be a huge benefit with the heavy rains we have received since construction, including this year. John Grissom is the FIRST one we call-and the ONLY one we trust-when we are considering any construction project.

Matt & his crew did several jobs for me. The jobs included building a 40x30 garage, 12'x50' deck, 10'x10' deck for a hottub, a small back porch, arranged for my concrete retaining wall,sidewalk & steps, framing & skirting my 42x64 mobile home with concrete board & even put in a horseshoe pit. The jobs were completed beyond my satisfaction, within budget, & on time. His crew arrived when they said they would be there & worked hard the whole time, always professional & friendly, very easy to work with & cleaned up after themselves. Matt stands behind his work. I had absolutely no problems. I would hire his company again!

    Residential Landscaping!! Mr. Hampton removed two large trees from my backyard area and put a asphalt driveway it the trees place. Leading from the driveway, which was perfectly leveled considering the lot was on a decline. A paver side walked was installed from driveway to front yard. My front yard he built to figure 8 shaped retainer walls with Pom Pom shrubs centered surrounding a bright variety of flowers and mulch. It is still absolutely beautiful. Two years later he came out and placed a small pond also in a figure 8 shape with a variety of small to medium fish. I received the Neighborhood "Most Beautiful Yard Award" I will definitely referr Mr. Hampton to any and all residential and commercial consumer!!!

    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.
