General contractors are the backbone for any home improvement or remodel job.  They typically will pull permits, hire subcontractors, and outline the project to keep costs within budget.

At Angie's List, we pride ourselves on having the best reviews for local contractors to help you find the right professional for your project.  You can see our list of contractors along with ratings or browse general contractors near you to match with an expert quickly.

You can learn more about contractors, general contracting, hiring contractors, as well as general repairs, handyman work, DIY projects and more. It's recommended to get at least 3 quotes before hiring a contractor or signing any contract.  Always check with local agencies for proper licensing and permits.

Dear Angie: What does it cost to replace baseboards? Mine are made of dark wood that was painted white, but is now chipping. I’m interested in replacing the existing trim with pre-painted, faux-wood baseboard. – Beverly C., Cheyenne, Wyoming
