I contacted Ron for work to remodel my bathroom and repair and paint my garage ceiling. Ron and his team did a phenomenal job for a reasonable price. I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend! They were on time, professional, cleaned up and paid attention to every detail. Super happy!

We were looking for a complete tear out and redo of our bathroom and building a walk-in closet in out master bedroom. Of the 4 contractors we reviewed they were the most organized and professional. The work donewas excellent and they always met their time line for completion of tasks. Their attention to the smallest detail was amazing and it shows in the quality of their work. The employees that worked at our house were extremely courteous and professional. We could not be happier with our experience and we will definitely use them for our basement buildout this summer.

We needed a photo cell on a two story apartment building replaced. David agreed to take care of the job for us. He kept us apprised of his expected arrival time, knew what he needed, made the repair and even drove back later in the evening to make sure it was working. We were very pleased!

My experience with QHR has been excellent! The price was very reasonable (low, actually) and the work was done quickly and in a thorough, professional way. The crew showed up on time, cleaned up perfectly and repaired all areas of the building as agreed. This company is outstanding!!

Absolutely fabulous! We had a really great experience working with Master Craft & Design. They remodeled both our guest bathroom and deck in July 2018. Both projects exceeded our expectations!! Ed and his crew showed up on time every day and were very professional and friendly. They treated our house as if it were their own - taking care of the space and cleaning up at the end of every day. They were like family when they were in our home. In fact, we miss having them around! Both projects were finished on time and very close to our original quote. Ed was also very responsive and accommodated all of my requests which was important to me. The bathroom included updating the plumbing, laying new tile in the shower and floor and repairing the drywall. The bathroom is gorgeous and the attention to detail with the tilework was amazing. Josh offered his design suggestions along the way and we were so thankful for that since we had never done a remodel before. Ed and his crew took our small crappy deck and turned it into a true outdoor sanctuary! They reinforced the old frame, replaced all of the deck boards, added a ton of new square footage, and gave us a gorgeous new railing. Every time I walk now outside my heart smiles. We absolutely love our new deck and enjoy spending time out there! We couldn’t be happier with the way both projects turned out. I would highly recommend Master Craft & Design. We will definitely be using them again in the future!

I hired William to repaint almost all of the interior of my house to include the ceilings. The job took longer than expected however the end result was well worth the wait. He was very easy to work with and his pricing was very reasonable.

Josh answered quickly and came the very same day to look at the repairs to be done. The next day everything was done and well done! I've been very pleased to work with Josh: fast, good worker and good price! And despite the very cold weather he stayed a bit longer to also fix and adjust our garage door. A crack! I'm not attaching picture because the painting is still pending (too cold to paint outside). Won't hesitate to call him again in the future when needed

Fence Installation Had to install a 320 ft fence to keep my pets and kids in the yard. Wanted a wood fence that had 2 gates and an extra "bump out "near the garage to enclose a tree that was in the way. Didn't want to have the tree removed because it was a blooming apple tree and would have cost me more to have the tree cut down and stump removed. I saved at least $600 by enclosing the tree and it looks really nice too! Thumbs up for saving the environment! We ran into a drainage problems in a back areas of the yard where it seems "soupy" so Bo suggested a deeper foundation hole for the post and a mix of gravel and sand to drain out excess water. Its been over a month now and with lots of rain. The post and surrounding area has been fine and seems to be draining better then it did before with the porous mix of sand/gravel. Bo, the estimator-manager has been out twice to check the area and called me for any updates of water drainage. I would recommend Steamatic for fence installation, especially if you have any issues with your lawn. The guys in the crew were super nice and even though I offered them our bathroom, they went to local public establishments. Great job guys! Melodie M-Whitefish Bay

I highly recommend using Hammell Homes for contractor work. Hammell Homes worked on a couple of projects in my building. Both projects were done with quality and at a fair price. I will definitely use Hammell Homes again for any housing repairs/projects in the future. Brian L.

We chose Network Remodeling after meeting with the owner Stan Silver because he really listened to what we wanted in a family room and garage remodel. He provided helpful suggestions and his price was very fair. When we asked for changes, he was always open to them or would provide a better idea than the one we had. We would definitely work with him again. It was the best and easiest remodel that we have had done.

Exceptional people to do business with. I plan to hire them again for future projects and highly recommend Precision Remodeling. I have had both neighbors and friends mention the nice work we had done (deck remodeling and expansion) which is a reflection of their craftsmanship. Even the Building Dept. at City Hall commented on how organized and prepared Precision Remodeling was in filing required plans and having their construction work accomplished "pass" every inspection stage during the process. Happy I hired them.

We hired Badger Contracting to do our roofs on our rental property when a leak occurred a week before Thanksgiving, they were comparable in price to other local companies, but they were able to complete the work before the end of the year, with the exception of our flat roof area that require a special treatment that requires warmer weather. Those areas are scheduled to be done in the spring. They completed the work on the house roof and both garages in less than 48 hours. The only negative thing I could say is it took them over a week to pick up the extra materials left sitting on our front lawn.

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.
