Great company!!! From the beginning to the end Mr Gonzales was there every day. The whole team worked very well together. Now about the job. They did my roof on the house with skylights and painted the exterior too. They did the roof on the garage and raised it from a flat to a angled roof with a new side door also reframing and supporting the inside walls. They also did a privacy fence with horizontal 2/6 cedar boards. The end result is impressive they used quality materials the work site stayed clean. I was given great respect and patience while I picked out colors and design. I will gladly recommend this company and use them agin myself.

This guy knows his work! I just love my patio and deck! He was the most affortable and the best, I must say! He is now building me a playhouse for my daughter for the backyard and said he could paint it as well! Love it!!!!!!! I highly recommend Affortable Outdoor Structures! He is willing to make anything your heart desires! Oh, and he also fixed my crooked door inside by replacing the whole frame at a fraction of the cost as what Home Depot and others would charge! Wish I would have found this company when we bought our older home!!!!!!!

We had a 40 yr old 30'x30' garage w/ a loft that had to be torn down. In 2 days Erwin and 2 others took the garage down, hauled off all the sheet metal and lumber and cleaned the site of all nails and trash. They even cut out the old lag bolts from the concrete on my request. They are prompt, courteous and safety conscious. We now know who is going to replace our old deck and replace the roof. Good job Erwin!

We had a great experience with Marco and Galactic Construction! He and his crew went above and beyond expectations to paint the trim and two doors on our house at a very fair price. Marco is the type of company leader who aims to please his customers. He decided to paint an extra coat to ensure that everything looked good, sealed areas that needed it, and cleaned up nicely afterwards. Marco and his crew saw some items that needed repair and offered to do it, but Marco never uncomfortably pressed a sale. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Galactic Construction to family, friends and neighbors.

Rene and his crew did a great job! They removed and replaced the attic access door in our garage. The one we had ordered was actually the wrong size and they took care of finding the correct one and helping with the exchange. Rene went above and beyond by sealing up some additional cracks in our garage ceiling as well as repairing the ceiling where it was damaged from the previous door trim. Communication, quality of the work and cleanliness of the work area after they left were all great. I will definitely call Rene and his crew again the next time we need some work done.

Chris did a fantastic job and was very reasonable in price. I needed several small things done and he was very accommodating in agreeing to get the materials and arrange comfortable times to do the work. He furnished the labor and material. Repaired a fence post, , installed new dryer vent, caulked sixteen windows, removing and replacing solar screens to do so. He sealed and painted spots on upstairs ceiling and down stairs rooms, painted the front door, garage door jamb and replaced sweeps on storm doors. I highly recommend him and look forward to his doing two rooms of tile for me in October.

Joe, Steve and Chris were nice, professional, and hard-working. They helped us with a variety of home projects including installing overhead garage shelving, light installation, electrical wiring, mounting a television and accessories on the wall, and repairing a crack on wall next to the stone fireplace. We would recommend them and hire them again.

Towers Contractors was amazing. My in laws house had 4 layers of shingles on it and Towers Contractors took the time and put in the hard work to take all the layers off, assess the roof for damages and put on the new single layer of shingles. Its a huge relief when you know the company you hired will go the extra mile to make sure everything is done properly and fix the bad work others left behind. We will absolutely without a doubt be calling Towers Contractors for all of our future house work at my in laws and my future home. Thank you Towers.

Coating of garage floor and removal of old coating. Everything about this job was flawless. The entire crew were totally professional, did a great, efficient job, and their cleanup was perfect. Our garage has become a showplace to our neighbors. Everyone who sees it raves about the appearance. We love the non-slip coating, and it looks just like it did the day the job was completed. Really holds up to the car traffic.

Jose's patient thoroughness in staining my deck and garage door were outstanding. He insisted on doing two coats, when one would have gotten by.

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!

Robert and his team are amazing! He is my GO-TO when it comes to any construction in my house, big and small! Projects at my house include: bathroom remodel, drywall, painting, roof repair, fence building, electrical updates, plumbing, tiling, kitchen remodel, door repair/hanging, outdoor fireplace, window install, rock work, you name it, Robert and his team can do it! He is on my speed dial. Seriously. I come up with crazy ideas and we brainstorm on the best way to get it done. He is very respectful to me and my ideas as well as my house. His team is honest and fun. I am a woman and never have they made me feel uncomfortable or made me feel like I don't know what I am talking about. Again, good people and can't say enough nice things about them. I just wish I could win the lottery so he can make all my home project ideas a reality!!!

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.
