Featured Reviews for General Contractors in Detroit
Nightingale Co.
General Contractors in Detroit
"Nightingale Co. exceeded our expectations! As a realtor and investor, I have worked with several contractors and subcontractors. From past experiences, I had very little faith in the industry as I found myself managing each person myself to ensure the work met my (high) standards. We hired Nightingale to remodel our home from floor to ceiling. Throughout the entire project, I did not feel a need to manage, check in on, or question them. Every one of the employees and subcontractors were kind, clean, professional, and highly skilled. The owner, operations director, and superintendents were there daily to offer "white glove service" to the project. Our home had several motivated individuals working 8-10 hours Monday-Friday from beginning to end of project. From woodwork, to custom cabinetry, to paint, our home has been seamlessly transformed with an unrivaled attention to detail. Nightingale Co is extremely high level and therefore they get my highest level of recommendation!"

PRM Custom Builders
General Contractors in Detroit
"I hired PRM Custom Builders (Paul Mooney) to completely finish a huge basement in a home I recently moved into. I couldn't be more pleased with the results of the project, as well as they way it was handled from start to finish. Paul is an honest, hard working Builder/Contractor that follows through on everything he tells you and responds to you promptly if you have questions or concerns. He can take your general ideas, add his extensive knowledge, vision and expertise, and bring a project to life. His quality of workmanship and attention to detail are second to none, and he has surrounded him self with some of the best Subs around. I recently had a very knowledgeable designer who stopped by my home tell me that his work was some of the best they had seen in a long time and immediately wanted to get info on who did the work. They were talking about how they really didn't have a contractor that stood out to them for quality of workmanship, as well as being able to deliver in a timely, professional manner. I told them I had it all with PRM Custom Builders. I would "highly" recommend Paul for anything from finishing a basement, to a complete new custom home. You will be not only pleased with the final results, but the way the process is handled from start to finish. Paul was a breath of fresh air to work with and I will call him again in a heartbeat if I need work done."

Bob Stern Building Company
General Contractors in Detroit
"I used Ron Stern to design and build a custom wall unit for my family room. Ron and his team provided this unit to our expectations and with his recommendations gave us ideas we likely would have not considered. The quality of the cabinetry was excellent and timetable for this project were accurate. I am having them do my kitchen next."

Renovations Unlimited
General Contractors in Detroit
"I was extremely happy with Ed and all of his crew that worked on the project. We had a water leak in our bathroom which cause a lot of work. He installed the new cabinets, installed the new floor, installed and repaired all of the doors, and did an excellent job on the trim work. I am looking forward to working with him on future projects"
- Steve Davis
Father & Son Construction
General Contractors in Detroit
"In June 2012, Father & Son completed a total tear out and remodel of our small 1950s bathroom. From the first visit by their salesman, to the last visit by Mat Vivona, we could not be more pleased! All the trades were wonderful - everyone took great care to keep our home as clean as possible, ensure our kitties did not get out, and the workmanship was outstanding, especially the tile work. Overall, everyone was very willing to work with me on any requests I had, and the project was completed on time and within budget (taking into account some surprises inside the walls). Since the job has been completed, I can't say enough good things about Father & Son, and have recommended them highly to anyone considering home improvements in the area."
- Liza Anne
Acheson Builders
General Contractors in Detroit
"Acheson Builders design team and crew remodeled our entire home. What started as a mother-in-law suite addition grew to a full kitchen remodel, expanding from 1 1/2 baths to 3 1/2 baths, all new windows, siding, roof, chimney, sunroom, deck and hardwood flooring. A lot of money invested but so much professional quality, care and concern every step of the way by the Acheson team."
- gurudude
Newmyer Distinctive Remodeling
General Contractors in Detroit
"The professionalism shown by the Newmyer family is phenomenal. They are very detailed-oriented and there are no surprises. Their commitment to providing the best products and services is only surpassed by their honesty. We have partnered with Newmyer on many projects, the largest being the construction of our 6,000 square foot home. We highly recommend them!"

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 Detroit 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?
