Thank you Ed and your team for everything! I had originally requested some household debris removal out of my basement. Ed came out on site a few days ahead of time to take a look at the junk I wanted to remove and gave me a more than fair estimate based on the amount of junk I had to be removed. My basement is 1500 square feet and I had about two dump trucks worth of clutter in my basement. Soon after Ed discussed the pricing I knew that I wanted to use his company based on his professionalism and ethics. The day of the work, Ed had two dump trucks out on site and all the debris removed from my basement in no time at all! I coundn't beleive how effective his crew was in getting the job done. I have already referred my neighbors to his company because of the high quality of work his company does. Thanks again Ed!

David came and worked on 2 drains-- 1) one in my basement which had clogged up the days before. After fixing it, he gave me some tips to prevent future clogging 2) my kitchen sink, which had been an issue for YEARS! instead of just snaking it, as other had, he realized it was a bigger structural problem and he fixed it. Thank you!!!!!!!!

Had a few small wall, door, and basement repair projects for Kelvin. He did an excellent job with all of them for a very fair price. I would definitely hire him again.

Antonio fixed a drywall patch in my finished basement. He was on time and provided updates while he was working on the project. His prices are fair and he did a great job. I will be contacting Antonio again.

We had a long list of things to be done before listing our home for sale. Jenrii with Ordonez Home Improvement did an excellent job tackling every project. Jenrii enclosed the landing where we had removed a handicap ramp - this was not an easy repair and required good carpentry skills. He also installed new closet wood bi-fold doors in a basement bedroom. Again, not an easy task as they had to be “fitted” to the closet. His troubleshooting skills were evident here. He replaced two old light switches, four electric outlets, and a bathroom vanity light fixture. These were only a few of the things he did. Jenrii is very professional, polite, thorough, and responsive. He texted us each morning on the days he worked to let us know what time to expect him. He works quickly and does excellent work for extremely reasonable rates. I would not HESITATE to recommend him for small jobs to larger remodeling projects. I was a commercial real estate project manager for 15 yrs, building shopping centers and office buildings - so I can definitively say that Jenrri knows what he is doing and does it very, very well.

We absolutely loved working with José and his team to tile our basement floor with ceramic wood-looking tile, expose a brick wall, and install new toilet and a wall-mounted sink. He works FAST and within budget. Extra things we needed done were added at very reasonable extra expense ($40-60 to repair an unexpected drywall hole behind a mirror). His team does beautiful work, and José made sure every bit of trash or demo material was taken away. They also went above and beyond to make things look nice. For example, I don't think they charged me extra when they plastered around our baseboards and it looks soooo much better! They also patched a little hole left by a past electrician's job. They took extra good care of our space as if it was their own home. We also like that he respected our desire to further finish our space ourselves ( we are ok with doing our own painting). I can't say enough good things. We will definitely hire José and Brandon Contracting for our next job.

Ryen came and repaired a drainage pipe in my basement that to my surprise had been leaking for yrs. No longer will my basement carry a damp, wet smell. Everything time i flushed the toilet water ran rapid on the basement floor. Thanks to Ryen, the issue has been resolved. Will be contacting for more for going forward

I hired Nilto to "finish" a room in my basement which we were turning into a gym. He framed half of a wall, hung drywall on two of the walls and the ceiling, installed an outlet, built a small custom railing, painted the drywall, and installed rubber flooring. Nilto took time to discuss the project and make recommendations based on his expertise. He even came back to our house to discuss the project with my wife and ensure she was comfortable with the plan. The project took a few days longer than expected (mostly due to uncontrollable things like drying plaster...etc) but was still finished in a reasonable timeframe. I had to point out a number of things that needed to be fixed (small things like some screws were sticking out, a few anchors in our concrete walls needed to be removed, the baseboards were a bit crooked), but Nilto took care of them quickly and send pictures to me throughout the project to be sure I was happy prior to returning home from work for the day. Overall, the price was excellent and at that price, I am very happy with the work Nilto did.

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

Nery offered a fair price and was able to start the work very quickly. He and his crew did a great job painting and caulking our newly finished basement. They are even going to come back to touch up after our cabinets are getting installed. Would definitely recommend them!

Tim and his crew did a great job on our basement finishing! Tim was very knowledgeable throughout the process and was very accommodating to with our busy schedules. He and his crew were very trustworthy as most of the time they worked in the house while we were away. Special thanks to Neil and the other gentleman on the team. They were always very friendly and responsive when I needed anything or had a question. My only negative, hence 4 stars, would be that I would have liked to only have had Tim as the sole POC versus us having to deal one on one with the other contractors on the project as it made for a lot of calls and additional tasks to manage. This was our first project so we were not really sure how everything worked. All in all, they did a great job and made our space beautiful! We would definitely use again for any project!

Ixin did a great job on my basement!! It was an eye sore and a wreck; which my 6 yr old niece and 9 yr old nephew called "the scary basement". Now it's a space we can be proud of again! My wife and i couldn't be happier. Thanks Ixin (and your crew) for all the hard work! I will be hiring him for more projects in the future. AL

Julio has been so good to work with that we have continued to hire him for bigger projects. Starting with replacing tile on a kitchen backsplash, he impressed us with thoughtful ideas that made our project better, sometimes cheaper. We then hired him to refinish our basement. His ideas have proven functional as well - one idea was to relocate ductwork so we no longer have to duck under a soffit in the basement, which opened it up immensely. He’s timely, thoughtful, and extremely nice. We trust him with our repairs.

Michael and his team did a phenomenal job! I hired Michael and his team to put the finishing touches on my basement that was left incomplete by previous owners. I had several projects that were left undone. Michael and his team finished installing baseboards that were left incomplete, installed several doors, installed door trim, finished installing hardwood floors that was incomplete and most of all he finished my stairs and installed handrails to make them safe for me and my family. Michael and his team were able to complete my basement in one day did and they did an amazing job! I will be using Michael for all my future needs in home improvement.

Roger completed the first part of my basement remodel, which was relatively small, but important. He repaired a hole in the basement exterior wall that was allowing moisture to get in and as a result a small mole patch had formed. Roger patched the hole (inside and outside), cleaned up the mole and replaced the drywall inside the house. So far, I am happy with the job. Of course, this is the kind of thing that is proven to be effective over a period of time. However, Roger gives a one year guarantee and that increases my comfort level. Roger has been very easy to work with and he is good at explaining his approach to resolving problems. I will sign an additional contract with Roger to continue with the next phase of my basement remodel within a week.

Sameer and his team did an awesome job with the plumbing in my basement. All his work came with a warranty and passed WSSC inspection. I would highly recommend Sameer for your plumbing needs. His rates were reasonable, he provided us with professional advice on completing the basement and he completed the project in the time frame we assigned to him.

Had a leak in our basement and no idea where it was coming from. Shut off our main water and placed a called to Raul with Nanos. Raul showed up same day, found a source of the leak--bad hose in our kitchen faucet; replaced the hose; cured the wood that had been affected; replaced the damaged ceiling tiles and with in 2 hours this was an issue no more. Pricing was reasonable. Repair was good and quick. Raul followed up to confirm that the we had not had any further issues. Raul is now part of our "Numbers to call" list for any house needs!

We hired Home Beautiful to refinish our basement after a flood. Gustavo did a great job. He arrived when he said he would, kept everything clean and finished on schedule. We were especially impressed when he came back later to do some emergency repairs to our staircase. We discovered that problem late on a Friday afternoon. He gave us an estimate Friday night, and stayed all day Saturday to finish the job.

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.
