"We hired Russell Building and Construction to renovate our back deck and screened-in-porch. They were very courteous and professional, extremely accessible, and worked overtime to get our project finished in a limited time frame for an event at my home. I would use them again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a contractor."

Slate Barganier Building, Inc

"They care about quality and want to please the home owner. They are very responsive. The subs are nice people as well. They are honest, even when hiccups arise (which is inevitable when building a home). It is obvious that the builder takes pride in his work and does not want to put his name on anything that is not top quality."

BMR Homes, Inc. Remodeling and Restoration
General Contractors in Birmingham
"BMR Homes is my remodeling choice for over 5 years. We've collaborated on two award-winning design projects. First, Chris Youngs and his crew converted a small unusable attic space to a spacious 15' x 20' light-filled design studio. The second project realized my design of an addition to replace an aging deck. This complicated custom addition features a 20' square deck and a spacious entertainment / media / sunroom with a 16' ceiling, 14 windows, motorized shades, custom lighting and a media center. All of these systems are remotely controlled through Wi-Fi, iPhone and iPad. This complex project was completed to my specifications and serves well for professional entertaining, meetings with my design students and family gatherings. BMR’s crafts persons responded to my needs as owner - designer working hard to make real the details specified. The challenge of realizing (in steel and wood framing) a complexly shaped 21’ x 26’ x 16’ high room on a steeply sloping lot was met with energy on the part of the carpenters and resulted in success within 1/4”. The interplay of as many as five “sub-contractors” in one week was orchestrated without conflict or confusion. Budget and deadline were followed and as designs changed, I was kept completely informed. Chris’s choices on electrical, insolation, stonework and media sub-contractors facilitated to project’s positive outcome. Real highlights are the “super-solid” deck, the gutters, the colored concealed trough and outdoor lighting, super efficient insolation, the “Hardy Board” exterior siding and the “mini – split - system” HVAC system.

Sparks Building Company, Inc.
General Contractors in Birmingham
"Brad Sparks just rebuilt our house that was decimated by the April 27th Alabama tornadoes. He was on site when work was being done just about every single day. If I ever called his cell phone, he answered 90% of the time and called me back within an hour or so the rest of the time. He is very personable (my wife loves him and his main guys) and really cares about details and making sure that things are done right. We built a very unique and unorthodox house (including secret passages) and Brad executed these challenges to perfection. We are self-described "perfectionists" and he caulked, refinished, and tweaked to our hearts content. The only downside really is that we miss having him and his guys around all the time now that the work is done. Hire these guys. Our pics should speak for themselves. Jamie Pursell"

What is a general contractor?


General, or construction contractors, are often known as project managers. They oversee the entire remodeling or new home construction project and facilitate all day-to-day tasks that move it toward completion. A general building contractor will work with your architect to review plan as you build a house and ensure everything is in place before work is started as well as arrange for permits and necessary inspections. While good local home improvement contractors will have the skills to handle certain tasks onsite, such as carpentry, he or she is also responsible for hiring subcontractors for the majority of jobs, such as electrical work, painting or plumbing. In addition, the general contractor should be on-site regularly to inspect the progress and resolve issues. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of general contractors: Architects & Building Designers, Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

Home remodeling contractors are a must for successful completion of a renovation. Because of this, it's essential that you do your homework before deciding on the right general contractor as you remodel or build a house. Inspect bids carefully. Was it ready when the contractor promised it? Was the bid for building a home unusually high or low? Each of these things can be very telling: A late bid may reflect timing standards, and an off-the-mark bid could be code for a pricey premium or a deliberate underbid to score the remodeling job. You should call references, carefully read reviews and visit completed projects in Birmingham to see if they’re what you expect for your job. Once you do secure your local contractors, read the contract very carefully to be sure everyone is on the same page.

Questions to ask prospective general contractors:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • What qualities do you look for in your subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
