Curtis Dycus (Dycus Construction) is the real deal. After my wife and I moved to Madison last year and bought our home, we started several construction projects. After building a detached, two-story garage, landscaping the front and back yards, and renovating our main home, I can say that I have had some "interesting" experiences with local contractors; late starts, (EXTREMELY) missed suspenses, and several broken promises, to name a few. That's why Curtis was a breath of fresh air! He quoted us very reasonable prices, showed up on time, met his suspenses, and actually did more work than we expected (paid attention to detail). Bonus: he cleaned up after himself (all the others left me with sawdust, debris, and cigarette butts)! Curtis is our guy! I would personally recommend him for any work that you need to have done, and that's not just grading on the curve. I can't say enough good things about this guy to let you know how pleased we are that we found him. Tim M. Madison

Bentley installed metal siding, metal roof, and insulation on a pre-engineered metal building for me. He and his crew did a great job and listened to our request and concerns. I'm sure I will use Bentley on future projects.

I cannot say enough awesome things about the work we received from Keith and his crew at Elite Construction & Remodeling. We hired another "contractor" on Thumbtack to build our 15x20 covered patio, but after a terrible experience with that "contractor" we gave Keith a call to see if he could fix the situation. He came out and gave us a new quote on the job which included the complete tear down and removal of the existing shoddy work that had been done. He gave us a fair price and he and his crew got started immediately. Throughout the entire build Keith was always professional and extremely courteous. He always wanted to make sure that we were 100% happy with the work being done. Another big key was communication. He kept us informed as to what was going on, every step of the way. If they left the job site during the day, he made sure that my wife or I knew that they were leaving and what they were leaving for. Keith and his crew were always polite and were very hard working. If you want your project done right, and you want to deal with a contractor that you feel comfortable talking to and doing business with, do yourself a favor and hire Elite Construction & Remodeling. You won't be disappointed with the workmanship, attitude, professionalism, and integrity that you will receive from Keith and his crew. My wife and I definitely plan on hiring Elite Construction & Remodeling again in the future! Thank you Keith and crew for all your hard work! Our patio is beautiful and you all should be extremely proud of yourselves.

Chris did an outstanding job for us. We requested that he build a rustic-looking tall (6ft.+) headboard for a king-size bed frame. Not only was the headboard delivered sooner than we anticipated, it was fantastic! High quality work and a nice guy to boot! We definitely recommend him for your carpenter or other jobs.

Sam Howard and his crew at Pro Building Solutions remodeled our whole house for us. We had a projected time frame of 3 weeks (for only the bathroom remodel), added in a lot of custom details in the middle of the job, including taking out a wall, doing a custom beadboard wainscoting in the bathroom, changing out all of the outlets/switches in the entire house, and replacing all of the interior doors/hardware and somehow still ended up with only 3 weeks and 3 days in total for our job! We were more than satisfied with their performance! Every time we added something to the job, he would give us an estimation of how much time we were adding to the total of the job. In the end, they far exceeded our time frame in which we were expecting. There were quite a few different guys coming in and out of the house, but all of them were courteous, professional, and took the time to listen to our needs. Sam helped greatly with the design side. From start to finish he really made it an easy process in choosing which products to use based on our budget that we had presented him from the beginning of the job. We selected a few upgrades that put us over our budget, after all, you're only going to remodel once! However, we were able to save on some other materials that Sam had recommended during the process with his contractor prices. He also handled all of the delivery of our materials and never once charged us for the many hours of consultations he provided throughout the construction process. Here is the scope of work in which they performed for our house: Patched all of the sheet rock walls for paint. Removed a wall going into the living area opening up the living room to the hallway. Laid laminate flooring in the hallway. Changed out all of the doors and their respective hardware in the house. Changed out all of the outlets and switches from the old almond color to an updated white color. Changed the light in the guest bedroom to a ceiling fan with light. Replaced the rotten subfloor in the bathroom. Raised the vanity in the bathroom and refinished it. Removed the old tile wainscoting from the 60's and installed an updated wooden beadboard wainscot. Installed all accessories, mirror, and miscellaneous items I requested (at no additional cost!) Installed a GORGEOUS curbless tile shower up to handicap code for my elderly father who could not walk anymore (had to roll him in and out with a wheelchair). Changed out the 50 year old toilet to a new and updated toilet. Tiled the floor. And last but certainly not least, painted the whole house (1,400 square feet). By the end of the job, I felt like my whole house had undergone a face-lift! I absolutely hate the construction process (tearing my house apart) but all in all, Pro Building Solutions helped to make my project as easy and pain free as possible. They kept the job site clean every day, made sure I could park my car in the garage, and were always there to help me, even if it was to carry a few bags of groceries into my house on their lunch break. Overall, I would highly recommend Sam and Pro Building Solutions to anyone looking for a quality remodel and an affordable price! They went the extra mile for me and always communicated every step of the way. Any issues were addressed swiftly and as cost effectively as possible. Pro Building Solutions is the only company I will let work on my house!

I am very pleased with Jay and Daniel, they finished my basement for me. I wanted a kind of contemporary yet rustic look . they incorporated a ton of beautiful oak wood and stone that they had reclaimed from barns and old structures.. the attention to detail that these guys have is amazing. Daniel is very good at cutting and installing trims and building and installing cabinets. Jay is a very highly skilled tile installer and just Craftsman in general. The tile shower and floors are simply flawless. It's incredible, his work is superb and his ability to Invision and Create what I was trying to explain to him is just amazing, I will definitely use these guys again and strongly suggest you do as well. Thanks you guys, y'all are wonderful and I'm loving my new basement

    We had Barry build a sunroom and patio and the finished product was so much better then we expected. The quality of his work was excellent. We were so happy with the work we had him back to build a large master bath.

      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 architects work?

      Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

      When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

      How do architects charge for their services?

      According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.

      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.
