I run a small home-based business. When it became necessary to install additional lighting throughout my basement to support the business, I quickly found myself in a dilemma of time and cost. The options for contractors were overwhelming and after getting a few quotes it seemed the project would cost more than what I could afford and I would have to wait well-passed my deadline before a contractor could assist me. Tony Tan's name and information came up in a conversation and when I reached out, I was thrilled at how quickly he returned my call. Once I explained my problem he took on my project with an attitude of priority and genuine interest, and reassured me the work would be done exactly as I would want. Since I don't know much about installations, I basically left the major decisions to his judgment and hoped for the best. Tony provided me with lots of explanation along the way, easy-to-understand options, and efficient work, ALL at a very competitive price. He was quick, yet careful and knowledgeable without being condescending. To top it off, he also noticed a leaky toilet in the basement which I hadn't planned on getting fixed, but he offered to take care of it as he had the parts in his truck, for minimal added cost. I'm pleased to say that my basement lighting is amazing, AND the toilet works like new. I would highly recommend Tony Tan for a variety of home and business projects, not just for his ability to get the job done, but for his competitive pricing, job preparedness, and adherence to deadlines. Awesome work!

My husband and I met with several contractors and were very impressed with Howard Bullen's knowledge and skills. Others said we need a new deck, but Howard was able to repair and now deck is safe and looks amazing. The money saved now allows us to do other home repairs. We trust Howard and look forward to working with Bullen & Sons soon!

Jorge has completed numerous projects for me as I update and renovate my home. He is prompt, courteous, has assistance from his wife and son, is trustworthy, reasonable, and efficient. Most importantly he is honest. He first assesses the project, then sends a written estimate via email, gives a starting date, and cleans up after he completes each task. He buys the materials and brings them to the job. He saves me worry and time. He has completed the following projects for me: 1. Repaired drywall where I had had a water leak and painted the ceiling. 2. Painted all of my wood trim and turned it white. (Totally changed the brightness of the rooms). Has painted 5 rooms. 3. Removed wall paper and painted walls in a 2 story foyer. (his wife Monica cuts paint like no one I have ever known). 4. Removed and painted shutters and rebuilt several to avoid the cost of having custom wooden shutters made. (Very impressive work) 5. Removed a set of brick steps and replaced with new, "fake" wood steps, installed a railing. Rebuilt steps in my garage and installed a handrail. 6. Removed chipped paint and touched up white trim on the exterior ( house has 20 windows on the front). 7. Hung a double rear door that was custom made and has windows above it. 8. Built columns, hung a swing, painted porch ceiling... I have probably forgotten some projects. He has a wonderful work ethic and is pleasant. I could include photos, but I do not know how to do that!

After years of wanting my kitchen remolded, I've searched high and low for an affordable company with quality work. That is exactly what I got from this company. The team was professional and respectful, listening to my every concern/need. My countertops, wall paintings, and floor layout came out exactly how I imagined with little to no time at all. The crew left my house feeling more like a home. Will definitely hire/recommend this company should I need any work done. Thanks again!

When looking for a home repair partner, I wanted someone who was professional, trustworthy, responsive, and competitively priced. Baxter Safe Homes was all of those. Not to mention I engaged and hired him from Atlanta, GA for a project in Richmond, VA. We used technology to bridge the distance. Go ahead, look at the others, but highly recommend Baxter Safe Homes! 🏠 ✅

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.  

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.

Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.

How much will it cost to remodel my house?

The cost to remodel a home is highly variable — size and scope of the project, quality of materials, and the number of subcontractors required to complete the job all affect the total cost. The average national cost of a home renovation project is $13,500. The national average per-square-foot cost of a remodel ranges from $25 to $100. Nationally, kitchen and bathroom remodels are the most popular types of projects, in part because they typically have the highest return on investment when the home is sold. The national average cost of a major kitchen remodel ranges from $25,000 to $62,000, while the average bathroom remodel tends to cost $6,000 to $18,000. In addition to materials and labor costs, many remodeling project costs include permit fees, which, average $900 or more, depending on your location.
