Tony was 1 of 3 people that contacted me through Thumbtack. He has a lot of positive feedback, so that was the main reason I sought to hire him. I messaged him a list of things I wanted done (electrical and putting up wall paneling in a bathroom) and he called me shortly after. We set up a time for him to come out and look at what I needed. After that initial phone call, I messaged him a couple questions, and he responded back promptly. He also had messaged me pics of his current and past projects that were similar to my preferences. He encouraged I checkout his website for past projects and read his reviews. As mentioned previously, he has a lot of happy clients. While I was still a bit skeptical, this pre-meeting communication told me Tony not only knows what he's doing, he is proud of his work as well. He came by as expected, and right away wanted to check if I had the necessary wall panels and trim. He checked out the bathroom and quickly assessed he can do the job. This entailed vinyl wainscot panels on the walls, replacing a towel bar, and replacing the bathroom fan for one that has a light. He suggested that the fan would not provide enough light but that he could install an additional light above my bathtub. I agreed. I asked if he could/would install a light in my coat closet (and yes he would). His quote seemed reasonable to me, so we scheduled it for 2 days later starting Fri. morning). He then called me the day before the job (Thurs. morning) to tell me he had a free window that same day starting at noon and if I was available, he would start then. I luckily managed to pull away from work and let him start the job. I did not expect him to finish by 5pm; I just figured whatever he didn’t finish he would complete the next day as we had scheduled. Nope! Tony confidently stated all the expected work would be finished by the end of the day. One of his crew members, named Edward, came by to assist. The first thing they took care of was a nice job on installing an LED flush mount light (pull cord turns it on/off) in the coat closet. Tony stepped out a couple times to check out other projects he was supervising in the area. The second time he stepped away he informed me that he had to go but that Edward would continue on and finish up. No problem; Edward was working hard away on the bathroom walls/lighting. Tony then messaged me later saying the other project was not ready and that he was on his way back over. While I did not expect it, I certainly appreciated his dedication. Fast forward four (4) hours later, and I was impressed with their work! They did a fantastic job, and it's like a whole new bathroom. They even managed to clean up well without any sloppiness. Edward had pointed out one corner that still needed to be painted, but that he would have to come back at another time as he had to go. One minor complaint: The towel bar was not put up and was still its box on the bathroom floor. When I asked about it, Edward told me that he was not aware of that specifically, and to check w/ Tony. Edward had to go anyway, but since he had just mentioned coming back to paint the corner, I was not too bothered. Tony had communicated later he would make sure that's taken care of. Things get overlooked and I can understand. It was still relieving to hear that it would be addressed. Despite that one (1) con, it was outweighed by the following pros: The rest of the work, the promptness, the cleanup, and the communication. He followed up the next day and asked if my family liked the work that was done (and yes very much so. I almost wish I could take credit for doing all the work!). He has already contacted me saying he would come Sat. morning to finish, but I wasn't home. So kudos for being available to follow through. He has recently messaged me some pics of other current projects and joked that it's from his marketing and sales department. But in reality they sell themselves. I've already decided I will definitely hire him again for my next small project.

I needed a contractor to wall mount a 55" tv over a brick fireplace. The veteran owner were diligent and got the job done in a timely and efficient manner as well as concealing the wires behind the bricks. They also went beyond to clean the mess they created in their area of work. They provided me with a veteran discount for having a Navy Federal account on top of the already reasonable cost. My only complaint was they were not punctual. My appointment was between 3-5 and they showed up at 6 having to leave work early for no reason. Overall great experience.

Edgar has consistently provided excellent value and well crafted electrical work for our Owner / Builder new home construction project. He has roughed-in, and set outlets, switches and fixtures. Post construction he has wired a Generac whole house standby generator and added several additional circuits for me. Sometimes it is frustrating dealing with small sub-contractors; not with Edgar- he is always on time, always efficient, always great quality work. We couldn't recommend him more highly.

What a great experience! Professional and customer- service oriented. David promptly called to ask questions to give me the most accurate quote the SAME DAY that I called. He verified the appointment the day before and was right on time. He quickly and expertly wall-mounted my 50" TV in less than one hour. A bonus was the ability to hide all my cables in the wall with a 2" square cutout, hidden behind the TV. It looks so nice, and I'd hire him again in a heartbeat if I had another TV requiring installation. Highly recommended over any of the big box "professional" home theater/TV installers. Best service for the price. It means so much, when you work hard, and have a tight schedule, for professionals to do super quality service for the best price

Fantastic quality of work, and thorough clean-up afterward. We had two hose bibs and water shut-offs replaced which required cutting through plaster. The wall repair is seamless.

If you’re in need of a reliable, honest and get-it-done general contractor for your home remodeling needs, Al and his crew are the GO TO GUYS! We recently had a rather large basement remodel project where we took an unfinished space (approx.. 900 sq. feet) to a home office/ dental laboratory finish. There were a lot of moving parts involved – all new electrical/ mechanical/ plumbing; installation of egress & small sliding window(s), walk-out door w/ retaining walls and pavement; added bathroom & work/equipment room. Al took the design plans from a paper to presence, and really worked with us to stay on time and on budget. From the initial consultation, he took his time to go over details of the project and provide us with a written proposal on the spot. What was also appreciated was that he used upgraded materials rather than standard builder supplies, which really makes a huge difference in appearance! Al and his guys are meticulous, detailed & very clean – at the end of each work day, the floors were always swept & materials put away. Another consideration for us was trust since my husband & I weren’t home during the day. I can say with complete confidence that you can trust Premier Home Services to do their job, in your home without supervision. We will definitely use them again for our next home project. Thanks Al!

Barcroft Builders helped us correct numerous sidewalk trip hazards in our community. Tom was a pleasure to work with and we were very pleased with the quality of work. We chose Barcroft because they had good ratings and had a competitive bid. They did everything we asked and then some. We look forward to working with Barcroft Builders again.

We hired Pardo Design and Renovation, initially, to open up a wall in our old home. The existing single door was removed and they crafted a lovely case opening that replicated one from another home of the same period. It completely changed our living space. It feels so open while retaining the distinct feel of each room. Most people who visit don't realize it's not original to the house. We were so happy with their work that we've had them back for a few other projects around the house: patching plaster, removing wallpaper, painting (lots of painting!), adding custom elements to a fence, etc. The work is very nice and the estimates were fair. Great people to work with, so accommodating. Highly recommend.

    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.
