Pressure washed shed and fence. Looks almost as good as new. I'll need to touch up a few spots with paint (original paint is 12 years old). While here, I asked about the front side walk, back patio, and the brick retaining wall. Gary did it all for an additional fee, which I was happy to pay. My yard looks great!

We hired Ernesto Duran to build a backyard retaining wall (from 3 quotes with other builders in the area). He built a beautiful, well crafted and high quality wall (see pictures) which was about 50 feet long and 36 inches high, turning an original 45 degree hill slope to an almost level foundation. He and his crew built the retaining wall in about 3 full days of work. We chose the Manorstone blocks (6" x 12" x 16") from Mutual Materials. In addition, Ernesto fully landscaped our backyard by removing the old grass and all of the weeds and replaced it with new grass and planted about 30 new plants as well as moving/replanting the existing bushes and trees. If you are looking to top quality, then Ernesto Duran is the Retaining wall/Landscaper" to hire. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

R&R (and the owner Ricardo) was the main contractor that implemented my landscape plan (had a landscape architect draw this up separately). He came in with a fair bid and executed the following: 1.) Build of a block retaining wall with capstones 2.) Complete replacement of soil and mulch for the yard 3.) Planting of various species of trees and plants for the yard according to the landscape plan 4.) Installation of pavers and gravel where needed My property was not in an easily location (elevated) - so the work was back-breaking to haul up and down the stairs. His people did this without complaint and R&R was done 4 days before the final date promised on the landscaping. In addition to the landscaping, Ricardo (owner of R&R) is extremely knowledgeable about construction so is able to help you plan around future projects that you may want to put in place (e.g., pergolas). I wish I had known him before I bought my current fence as well. I would recommend R&R without hesitation.

Had some timing and communication issues (on both sides), but once complete, our driveway came out good. We also had them build a retaining rock wall that looks fantastic and we have received many compliments. Viliamu and his team were very friendly and easy to work with. Recommend.

TJ and his team leveled out my back yard and alley and placed in a boulder retaining wall. I am absolutely ecstatic with the results! It looks amazing! Once the hill down to our alley was cut out we all realized that the original plan for a slight slope wasn't going to work. They changed gears and made the driveway look even better than I originally way planning. They all worked until sunset to get the job done in a day. I would highly recommend this team for your construction project!

This company has done a ton of stuff for me, from small things like installing a dishwasher, through roof repairs and tearing down walls to combine rooms, to building a very difficult retaining wall. I get the impression nothing is too small or too big. Prices are extraordinarily reasonable. I wouldn't call anyone else.

    I had I.B.S. Builders come out to my house in Fife to do some demo work on my old shiplap siding and install windows and also water seal the outside of my home to prep for siders to come. They did a outstanding job, there bid was lower than the 5 other bids I had gotten and the work was done within a two days, and it was a lot of work. They also did cleaned up better than I've ever had. Overall 5 stars, I was very pleased with the results. Clean work guys!

He did a few other projects for me that I was equally happy with installing attic insulation and some recessed lights in my dining room. I have fond my GoTo Guy with Dewayne Johnson of Trinity Construction Builders LLC.

    We have worked with Chris off and on for years doing various projects for our rental properties and home I live in now. I have had him remodel kitchens, bathrooms, outside work which has included additions, fences, decks, rebuilding my garage, repaving my driveway, building a retaining wall, installing windows, doors, floors, fans, waterproofing, you name it he's done it for me including foreclosed properties. What I really like about this company is the rates are reasonable, hes a great listener and communicator and his wife helps him run the day to day operations with emails and office work so he's not so overworked. I have hired contractors in the past that have came in demoed the job, demand more money or they disappear. Chris has either asked for a deposit and paid as work has progressed, paid hourly and than paid weekly, or what have you. Even if something did interfere with being on that job daily, he always has told me via email or called and he always keeps me updated on how things are going or if there were extra costs involved, we were notified immediately. I think most contractors try to do the work, the estimates, get materials, do the office work by themselves and i think it gets them into trouble not being able to be at three places at once so they do really well. The only complaint i have is he might show up late once in awhile but I know running a company isn't easy, I am self employed as well. I highly recommend him and his company to do remodeling and repairs. Very professional and they fix any work that has been paid for or charged for free. I have never had an issue getting him back out here to fix something that I wanted done differently or organically didn't stay put. I am avaliable for personal referrals.

    Omega helped me build my house. What I couldn't do they did and did it extremely well. For example the trusses and roof they did, the floor joists and wall I did, dry wall they did. We partnered well together from the beginning to end.

    We are very happy with our experience with F&M Our project was an outdoor project. Our objectives were to replace the old railroad ties that were used as retaining walls with good quality stonework, improve the drainage to channel rainwater away from the foundation and to upgrade our paved terrace. F&M provided a fair cost and time estimate and then put together a good team to make it happen. The new stone retaining walls looked so good that we expanded the scope to include replacing our wood deck with quality pavers to match the new pavers on the terrace. F&M listened to what we were asking for, understood our priorities and made some good suggestions that made sense and that we mostly we agreed to. The project was completed according to the agreed costs and mostly on time. It has been a year and their work stood up to last December’s rains. Only negative is that the work schedule was a little unpredictable so we could not plan around stages of the projects well.

    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.
