Mc Jones goes above and beyond to make his clients happy. I had a last minute job request for him because the previous contractor flaked on me. That same day, he came by in the evening to scope out the job. The next day, he completed the work I needed to have done. However, after he left, I inspected the sewer line he had worked on and realized there was a crack in it. Sure enough, it was not McJones fault. This was a fault from the previous contractor. Even though Mc Jones was fully booked the following day, he knew how important it was for me to pass inspection so he got up extra early and met me at 7am before his other work. McJones is a man of his word. He stands behind his work and never leaves a client unsatisfied.

Brandon is awesome! He replaced 2 hanging light fixtures and 2 recessed can lights with track lighting fixtures at our office. He knocked it out in a couple hours even though we were missing a bracket and he had to run to Home Depot, he only added a $10 fee for the trip. I received 3 quotes from other electricians before going with Brandon, all saying the job would be really difficult and quoted me outrageous amounts. He came in, took a look and sent me an extremely reasonable quote. A lot of times companies will hike up prices for commercial jobs especially at a doctor's office. He did such a great job, not to mention he cleaned the site after having to do drywall work, that we paid him more than he charged. I highly recommend using HiiPower electric. Great work!

To start, our fence was falling apart! We went from one of the nicest fences in the neighborhood to one of the ugliest. Our original fence was a standard, builder’s grade fence installed by the home builder in 2007, which we had professionally repaired in 2014 (via another contractor), but this time were due for a complete replacement. We've had great success with the professionals on Thumbtack and although we’ve never worked with Queta Construction before, Henry Rodriguez’s response time, pricing, and knowledge were superior to all the other fencing contractors we interviewed. It was a pleasure working with him at the end of April 2016 and after the treated boards have had a chance to dry out in a month or two, his team will be back out to stain our fence. Again, super nice, very professional, and very reasonable in price. Where most contractors we’ve talked to (even on past projects) will only accept cash or check, Queta Construction also accepts credit as a form of payment. Henry came to our home within days of initial contact on Thumbtack for a quote which was provided within minutes and his team was available to begin work only a couple of business days later. He listened to all our requests and made recommendations where appropriate. They even built us a custom trashcan containment area to match the fencing (pricing on that custom build was excellent, as well). Very flexible scheduling, returned phone calls quickly, and work was completed ahead of schedule. The fence is superior to our builder’s standard fence in every way: treated pine posts, rails, and 2x6 base supports, and beautiful 1x6 cedar pickets, posts installed at 2.5’ depth with no cement showing above ground, everything installed very evenly and flowed smoothly with the peaks and valleys of the yard, from posts to rails to pickets. Great quality boards, no visible knots or holes. I highly recommend Mr. Rodriguez and team! I understand some of my neighbors have already contacted him for quotes of their after seeing the work he did at our house. Thanks again Henry!!

Diamond in the rough as far as contractors go! If you need it done, this couple is the one to do it! They're the only company that gave me an estimate and constantly checked up with me and in the end, they stuck to the price estimated even though I asked for a few more things in addition to what was originally quoted. I know the job was more of a pain than they took into account before checking out what needed to be done but the price never changed. This is a true, genuine, honest, (pretty awesome if I must say myself) couple that work together to make their customers happy! I inquired about a few doors and ended up with 4 beautiful doors with new knobs, a hung mirror and a fixed chair and I couldn't be happier! We also found out we know some of the same people!! So glad we found them! Thanks Maury and Melissa!!

JJ was very professional throughout the entire experience with excellent communication and keeping me informed of how long the job would take. It is so rare these days to find a honest contractor who does good work and you feel like you can trust them in your home. He is not only professional but he is very personable and a genuinely good person. He works fast and doesn't drag out the job to make more money. I am so glad I met JJ and will definitely tell my friends and family about him and use him again in the future. I love how versatile he is and can work on so many different things. Everyone needs a good handyman, and JJ is your man.

After this experience, I wouldn’t hire anyone else! Geronimo was a true professional, payed attention to detail, thorough, and even made sure his subcontractors did work that was up to his company’s high standards. He even took on the job of painting our house when his guy didn’t show up. Talk about service!! Also, he is very easy to work with and knows how to communicate to understand what the customer needs. All the work was done in a FLASH!! If you need A+ roofing or general contractor help in Austin/Round Rock, look no further!

Galactic did a great, professional job on our remodel. They installed new windows, framing, Sheetrock, exterior hardy replacement and painted the home inside and out. They even stepped in and fixed some poor work we had another contractor do. They are the real deal.

Chris did a great job removing the popcorn in on of our bedrooms. We didn't want to pay what the larger painting contractors wanted to charge and we didn't want to do it ourself so Chris was the perfect choice. He showed up when planned and finished in the expected time. Finished product looks great.

It’s rare to find a contractor that bids a responsible price, shows up on time and guarantees their work. This company does much more. I’ve already referred them to my friends.

I've heard horror stories of hiring contractors without knowing them but I am totally pleased with Kyle and his crew. They completed a fence project faster than predicted and they do quality work for a fair price. I recommend them without hesitation.

The range hood install was more complicated than expected. While I was prepared for the possibility of more time needed (more $$), the 2 helpers that came with the lead contractor were young and inexperienced, and this definitely impacted the time needed to complete the work. Lead contractor was very knowledgeable, professional and clearly patient with his new guys. I would use the company again but would do a better job of articulating my requirement that the "on the job training" for new hires must not impact my cost. I probably paid $50 more than I should have.

I work for a property management company and we often are under pressure from owners for quotes. I put in a request and James went to the property the same day(I put my request in at like 5pm!) and sent a quote the same day which was very reasonable and worked for our investor. James has gone above and beyond with how responsive he has been with giving me updates on the work. I haven’t had to ask him one time for an update as he’s always on top of letting me know first. Not only does that make my job so much easier as I can provide our investor client up to date info, but it also shows that he stays on top of the various projects. Very grateful to have found James and Precision and we will be using them throughout SA for our investors. A+++ for value, responsiveness, professionalism, and going above and beyond. Thank you!

We were down to our last project in the new house when we found these guys! We would’ve saved around $10,000 if we’d used them the first time. They were patient with us when we changed our minds on certain things and are great listeners. The world needs more of these contractors

My husband and I contracted with Calvin to completely remodel our kitchen this past February. We could not have asked for a better contractor! He was on time every day. He completed the work in (what we considered) record time. Best of all, he did an absolutely beautiful job! He has an eye for detail and can solve problems, should they arise, with minimal fuss and disruption. We'd hire him again in a heartbeat!

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 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.

Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a 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.
