Very professional! We had multiple holes in our kitchen wall that we attempted to patch up ourselves, but were unsuccessful. Tremain was able to come out within days of me posting the project to determine the depth of the issue. Once the severity of the damage was determined he fixed it the same day and came back the next day to sand down the wall and make sure it looked good and cleaned up after both sessions. Tremain is extremely friendly and knows the business. We will be using him again for other home repairs.

The job required installation of several floor cabinets in a kitchen. On one side the cabinets were raised off the floor, mounted away from the wall, and a butcher block counter top cut and installed. On the other, sink side, a cabinet was installed and all cabinets on that wall were leveled to allow for installation of a counter top. The individual doing the job provided ideas on how to proceed and worked quickly to provide a quality product. He was willing to work around the clock to complete the installation and worked continuously while on site. I trust his judgement and his work ethic is above reproach. I would certainly recommend him for any job you may have.

Keith and Mark built this 100% custom western cedar modern fence (work of art), about 220 feet, board by board, in less than 2 weeks. Started the project in less than a week from initial contact. These guys are the best you can get if your looking for quality craftsmanship! Together we designed a fence that stayed true to the architecture of our home and executed. Keith and Mark were organized, clean ( I mean picked up every scrap almost before it hit the ground clean). Other than the materials and the daily progress on the fence you could not tell they had even been here in the evenings. Keith found top quality, clear wood, no knots, beautiful material. They measure every board, level every board, every time. No short cuts. Hands down awesome experience, could not be happier. Thank you Foster Construction Fence and Deck! Thank you Keith and Mark!

When a company has 5 stars it automatically makes me suspicious because so many companies are paying for reviews. With that said, Woodland Outdoor's team deserves every star of this review. First of all, they came over 3 times to work with us on the design of our patio, talk about our options, and make us feel 100% comfortable with the project. When the team showed up they were extremely professional. All of the crew introduced themselves and shook our hands. They worked from 7 AM - 4PM each day with few rests. Everyone was constantly working, and working hard. Our patio, landscaping, and garage pullout turned out beautifully. We could not be more happy. We highly recommend Scott and his entire crew. If you need a reference, contact us, it will be glowing.

Shaun did the backsplash for our kitchen. He was professional, and did the work himself. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the backsplash. Shaun truly is a perfectionist with his work and it shows in the outstanding results. I highly recommend Strictly Backsplash for anyone in the Hampton roads area. Thanks Shaun!

I am very pleased with the exterior stair rails and banister that Greg built and installed on my home. They are well made and will last for years. Greg is very personable and easy to work with. He is an excellent carpenter and designer. He came when he said he would and left the area spotless. I have another project for him as soon as he can get to it.

Don and his crew helped remodel my father's house. We ended up doing a whole house remodel and sold the house in less than one day with full asking price. They were complete professionals, we had tight deadlines and they not only met those, but they also exceeded our expectations with the finished product. Can't say enough good things about the way Don and his crew worked with us throughout the process to make a big project a success. Nothing was an issue for these guys from brand new kitchens, baths, carpets, to finishing hardwood floors. The house turned out amazing.

Don has now handled two projects for me, one large and one smaller, but has done excellent, professional work on both. His kitchen granite and tile work was fabulous, and he installed new entry way and patio doors for me. Timely, cost-effective and professional all the way!

I'm so happy with the both projects Josh did for me. I have had a lot of contractors in and out while trying to get back to normal after a flood and by far Josh has been the most professional and friendliest person I have had the pleasure of working with. He is punctual and reliable and really made me feel like it was a partnership. He kept me up to date on how things were going and let me know if he came across any issues. He came up the designs for my kitchen and pantry and they turned out better than I ever imagined. The finished projects are so awesome they look like they were built with the house. He is a skilled carpenter and really takes the time to make sure the project is done to perfection. He cuts materials on site, cleans up after himself and works diligently to get the job done quickly. He respected my home and never left a speck of dust or debris anywhere. It was so refreshing working with him and I will certainly call him for our next project.

Doug was quick to respond and gave a thorough explanation of his services and prices. I needed a new kitchen floor replaced fairly quickly for a rental. I live out of town so we shared emails regarding the type of flooring that would be best and he purchased for me. Doug and a coworker arrived on time and did a wonderful job replacing the floor. Doug explained any problems or issues laying the title and made a few recommendations on other things in the house. Best of all they both were very nice and personable. The quality of work was amazing and it was money very well spent.

Patrick built a custom cabinet for our bathroom that is a great match for the other cabinets in our home -- down to the door panels and stain color. He was a joy to work with and did a beautiful job of cabinet making. He listened well to what we wanted, made great suggestions of his own, and the final product could not be nicer. Thank goodness! Our bathroom is small and I needed the extra storage space -- now I have ample space that's beautiful as well. I would not hesitate to work with him again.

We were very pleased with the work completed by VIP. They were prompt and fair with their estimate. There were no surprises and the tile project in our kitchen and breakfast nook turned out beautifully. The project was kept neat and orderly throughout the several days it took to lay the tile and both gentlemen we worked with were very friendly and conscientious. We will definitely use VIP again on any future projects!

Brandon and team did an amazing job on a challenging fence installation. Brandon was polite, knowledgeable and patient with me as I explored (and explored and explored) various fence options before finding one that I was happy with and that met my budget. In addition to building a custom fence for a picky customer, the team had to contend with concrete-like soil, mosquito infestation, poison ivy and crazy downpours... and yet, they never complained-- not one of them. When we ran into a rainy spell, I felt sure that the project would be delayed, but nope... they pitched a couple of tents and kept going. Customer service like that is rare. I'd hire them again for sure!

Jessica was the first to respond on Thumbtack, a service I've never used before. I went to see her and she made the process very easy. The installers were phenomenal and really worked hard to fit us into their extremely busy schedule. Everyone was extremely knowledgable and professional. I felt like they wanted to work hard for our business and did. I rated a 4 star because I had a phone incident with another staff member that upset me, but that was my only dealing with her and she wasn't a part of my transaction. I would have rated 4.5 stars but it wouldn't let me. 😃. I recommend K & B Expo and Jessica. Thank you.

I hired Virginia Kitchens (The IKEA Installer for Hampton Roads) to install my IKEA kitchen and what a great choice. From design to finish they were in constant communication. I am so glad I decided to give them the job when my order had arrived and it was 146 boxes. But on the first day they sorted through the boxes and had everything organized and within an hour had cabinets already built. I am so happy the way the kitchen turned out and thank Virginia Kitchens for all the hard work.

The first job of revamping a part of our kitchen went very well and all the work stated in the contract was accomplished. When additional work with very old pipes were discovered a new contract was written and the crew worked in very cold weather outside and under the house to resolve the issues. They were like bulldogs and did not give up on a very old house. The only drawback was they were very hard to get hold of. For example, when a problem was discovered after they left the first time they could not be reached by phone for several hours. Also their overall promptness of arrival and feedback to the customer was lacking in professionalism. They are very knowledgeable, have a "can-do" spirit, and know what they are doing.

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.
