I have had a great experience with Asset Environmental from beginning to end. I first found out about this company from my real estate agent who works for a well-respected high-end real estate firm here in Utah. She said their brokerage always uses Asset Environmental because of its thoroughness, ease of process, and low cost (compared to a scenario where a person actually tore out sheetrock to perform remediation). So, I did my own investigating and looked up their Facebook page and watched a documentary about their fogging process, which does not require demolition and which uses an organic fog that is so acidic that it kills mold but does not harm humans or pets (will sting your eyes, though, during the first 2 hours after the fogging, so you ought to stay away from the area). I was pleased to read this, and I was also pleased to hear they take tests before and after by simply collecting an air sample to ascertain the level of mold spores in the air. I was again pleased that they were not going to have to cut out sheet rock to do a test. So, I hired them, and the technicians were friendly and got right to work. It was low-stress and simple--didn't even have to move belongings out of the room. In fact, they said it was better to leave belongings in the room that were already there to make sure any mold spores that might have attached themselves to those things were also killed. The fogging process didn't take long--went to do some errands and then came back a couple hours later. The odor was strong but not unbearable, and nobody in our house got sick from it. The odor died down after a few days. I was happy to see the mold test reporting that the mold count had gone down considerably. I had multiple areas tested, and the process was slick. In my research, I had found that Asset Environmental is certified by a mold remediation certification company out of the northwest--which is a lot more credible than many mold removal companies, as Utah apparently does not require a mold remediation license. But the "proof is in the pudding." I am happy to say that for a couple months we have had the carpet pulled back in the room where there was some mold--just a little a long the door threshold to a balcony that leaked water in--and no mold has reappeared. The carpet was pulled back for a long time because I was waiting to get the balcony repaired, otherwise I could have pulled it back right after the remediation. Anyway, having the carpet pulled back enabled me to see what was going on in the same area where I originally had mold--and no mold has reappeared. I am happy with the ease of the process and also its scientific nature. I am also happy that they are certified. Most of all, I was happy to see with my own eyes that the mold didn't grow back after about 2 months of watching it.As far as people go, the owner, Ben Gochberg, has bent over backwards to help us out--offered us great prices and was even willing to forego a trip charge for additional testing when they were already working in the area. He took lots of time on the phone to explain the science of their process and to answer questions without acting rushed or bothered. He seemed comfortable standing behind his product. Also, he was always quick to respond to texts. The technicians who came out to perform the remediation were kind, courteous, efficient, and informative.If we ever need mold remediation again, they will be the first phone call I make.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

How do I remodel my bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling is made up of three general phases. The first phase is the planning and permitting phase, in which you determine exactly what you want, what materials and finishes will be used, and what the end product will look like. If you’re competent with design you can handle the planning yourself, or you may hire an interior designer to guide you. During this phase you’ll also hire a general contractor who can help execute your remodel vision, coordinating and overseeing all the subcontractors required to do the bathroom remodeling (plumbers, flooring pros, etc.). When your plan is finalized, your contractor should obtain permits for the work you want done. During this time you’ll work together to order all the materials so they’ll be ready and waiting when it’s time to start construction.

The second phase is construction. Bathroom remodeling typically starts with demolition, removing the old floors, shower and vanity to make way for the new. Delays in delivery of materials, or changing your mind and ordering different materials halfway into the project, will mean that construction has to pause until the new materials arrive. Each subcontractor is dependent on the next to do their work, and the general contractor should keep things moving along at the proper timeline, ensuring that the right materials are available and dealing promptly with any unexpected repairs, such as damage discovered behind the walls or under the floor. The general contractor will also coordinate inspections from the necessary officials if you’ve moved load-bearing walls or done electrical or plumbing work. After construction is complete, the final phase of bathroom remodeling is addressing your punch list. These are all the items that need to be corrected before final payment is handed over to the contractor.

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.
