Ben worked with us extremely well as another contractor on our remodeling project had numerous setbacks and schedule changes. Ben adjusted to when we needed him. Quality work, and we plan to use him on more things around our house.

360 Maintenance has completed several projects for me over the past few months and I have been ecstatic with all of the results. They remodeled 2 of my bathrooms (which I have wanted to do for years) and the results were fantastic! I wish I would have done it sooner but was always intimidated by trying to find a reliable and trustworthy contractor.

The problem was with my side garage door causing locking problems. Though everything looked level and plumb there were some very slight tolerance differences. We took the strike plates off and cut the the nails holding the door frame to the rough opening. There were also two screws, one top and one bottom that were also removed from the strike side. The brick molding from the strike side and top were then removed allowing us to tap the top of the strike side in toward the garage and then tested the locking mechanisms for alignment and ease. Once in proper place, we secured the strike side top and bottom to hold it in place. When we had removed the brick molding we discovered that once the door was properly aligned, the sheathing on the strike side stuck out approximately a 1/4 inch. It became clear that the original contractor failed to square up the hinge side of the door opening with the strike side of the door opening thus there existed a slight torqueing of the door in the opening. With that, and the addition of cold and heat expansion and contraction, locking the door was problematic. We managed to trim down a 3/4 by 1/4 area of the sheathing so the brick mold would sit flat on the sheathing and door frame keeping the appropriate setback from the edge. We were also able to accomplish the work without affecting the siding at all. I had a piece of brick molding consistent with what was there so we were able to replace the strike side molding which I cut on my compound miter saw. Everything fit in perfectly and the door is easily closed and locked. What remains is some slight shimming, recaulking the top and strike side, and another coat of paint on the trim.

Hello, My sister recommended me to have GTC/Steamatic do repairs painting and mold removal for our house. Most of the mold was located in a closet off the kitchen and we wanted the first floor painted. The job was done in about 3 weeks as they had to rebuild an archway from the living room to dining room. We are very happy with all the work done and Bo gave us the best price with a bundle discount compared to the other contractors. Otherwise we wouldn't have gotten to rebuild the archway. My new furniture arrives next week and it looks like a total remodel I highly recommend Bo Tony and Marina for any project you've got going on in your home!

I had two other contractors attempt to fix a roof leak. I need to replace the roof but I wanted to wait until spring. Martin actually fixed it right and it has stayed dry through a couple of months of heavy rains. Very reasonable price too.

I cannot say enough good things about these guys. This is my first house and the roof needed replacing immediately. There was water coming in through the ceiling and walls. I was furious at the home inspector ("well the bowl [in the attic] was dry when we saw it..."), scared about being a homeowner and living alone in the city, and didn't know a thing about finding reputable contractors. Enter Jason. He showed up, we hit it off immediately, and he gave it to me straight. Unlike some of the other bidders, he didn't resort to scare tactics or sweet talk and flattery- much appreciated. He answered all my questions, discussed all the pros and cons of various shingles, venting systems, and materials, and was overall amazing. I feel like the price was very fair, and I got a great deal. The crew very carefully moved flower pots and bird feeders out of the way, swept up all debris (including on my neighbor's yard!) and carted away all the old shingles for recycling. Not only is it a major relief to have a solid roof over my head, but I feel 100% confident in the job and will absolutely be calling them again if I need any repairs or remodeling!

After 8 quotes for a fence from local fence companies and contractors, I came across thumbtack and figured I would give it a try. Almost immediately entering my info Joe reached out. I was immediately impressed with his professionalism and timely quote. He actually included the exact material quote showing exactly what materials along with how much everything cost. He was the clear winner. I was pretty specific with the timeframe, and he got it done. He stayed on budget as promised, and was great with communication throughout the project. Joe completed a 90+ foot privacy fence with a beautiful gate that crosses my driveway. I recommend Joe Mahas and Native Remodels without hesitation.

We had Steve install a powder room in our basement in June of 2012. Framing, dry wall, door, tile floor, vanity, toilet, electrical, ceiling, exhaust fan, heater. From our first meeting, through the entire project, to completion, our experience could not have been better. Of the contractor's we had look at the job Steve was the only one who listened to what we wanted. He made suggestions and gave us options to think about but he listened and provided us with a bid for a project that was what we wanted. Steve was outstanding to work with, he communicated exactly what, when, why and how he was completing the work. He was on schedule, on budget, and extremely easy to work with. His work ethic, quality, and pride in his work shows in the finished project. He used a plumber, electrician a carpenter assistant, who are just as excellent as Steve. They have the same work ethic and pride that Steve has, communicate like Steve and are a pleasure to work with. Our finished project is excellent and exactly what we wanted. The entire process was no hassle. Steve handled all permits and details. He said it would be painless and it was. We have used Steve for another small project, had him inspect a home our daughter was buying and have recommended him highly to our friends. He is now bidding on some work at our daughter's new home. We believe that Steve is the best. Honest, friendly, does what he says he will do, when he says it will be done, with excellent quality. It is a treat to work with someone who is as good as Steve. It would not be possible for me give Steve a high enough recommendation. Work with Steve and you will not be sorry.

My husband and I have a very old house (over 100 years old) with plaster walls that have 50-year old wallpaper on them. The house has beautiful oak woodwork throughout, and he has been very respectful not to damage it while getting down the wallpaper and painting the walls. He even took down our railings, cleaned and varnished them so they look like new! He's quick but mindful, ensuring a quality job. David is always willing to listen to what you have to say about the job at hand; he consults with great kindness, while offering suggestions and helping you to see what is possible beyond the task at hand, and ultimately does what is asked of him. He is easy to work with and has a great attitude! I would hire him again to do anything related to painting and/or construction.

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.
