I received quotes from 4-5 different contractors to extend my deck and drop in a hot tub before deciding on J&M. I really appreciated how fast J&M came out to give me a quote as well as the fact that they provided me a sketches of three different ways they could do the job. Their price was also very fair and reasonable. Josh and Max are a father/son team who are prompt, professional, nice, and do great work. I also appreciated that both are military veterans and this sealed the deal for me! I loved the work they did and plan to use them for future projects!

Very impressed by the responsiveness and professionalism of Chad Umfleet, the owner of Stud’s Home Repair. Chad holds the distinction of having Ben the youngest licensed plumber in Arkansas at age 17. He learned and was mentored by “old school” plumbers; he learned the right way. I highly recommend him for any of your plumbing needs.

I’m very thankful to have found Beth from Design Actually. It has been amazing to work with her. She has done a great job of dividing our renovation into phases so we can live in our home while doing necessary remodeling to improve the functionality of our home. We live in Plumerville and she is in Conway. To make this work, she has set up video conferences to propose her plans and designs. She has also been very flexible by working with us to stay within our budget. I would highly recommend her services.

I FIRST BECAME ACQUAINTED WITH DARRELL THREE YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS DOING SOME WORK ON MY NIECE'S HOUSE IN LITTLE ROCK. SHE WAS A FIRST YEAR PHARMACY STUDENT WHO HAD BOUGHT A HOUSE IN LITTLE ROCK WITH THE HELP OF HER PARENTS THAT NEEDED SOME REPAIRS AND DARRELL WAS RECOMMENDED HIGHLY TO HER. SHE WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE WORK HE HAD DONE FOR HER. WHEN THE TIME CAME FOR MY HUSBAND AND I TO HAVE A NEW ROOF INSTALLED ON OUR HOUSE, WE REMEMBERED THE WORK DARRELL HAD DONE FOR HER AND GOT IN TOUCH WITH HIM FOR WORK ON OUR HOUSE. IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS HE HAS PREFORMED SEVERAL PROJECTS FOR US INCLUDING REPLACING THE ROOF, INTERIOR PAINTING, REMOVING THE BUILT-IN SHOWER IN THE MASTER BATH TO REPAIR PLUMBING IN THE WALL SPACE AND THE MAKE-OVER OF TWO ROOMS IN OUR HOUSE. ONE HAS BECOME A CLOSET AND THE OTHER HAS BECOME A LIBRARY, INCLUDING A BUILT- IN COMPUTER DESK, SHELVING AND RELATED WORK. ADDITIONALLY, WE HAD PAINTING AND REPAIRS DONE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE WHERE THERE HAD BEEN LEAKS AND TERMITE DAMAGE. WE HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH DARRELL'S DESIGN WORK, CONTINUING THROUGH THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS AND WOULD RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY. DARRELL WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL TO ME WHILE HE WAS IN OUR HOUSE, OVER AND ABOVE THE PROJECT HE WAS WORKING ON. WE HAVE LAUGHINGLY WONDERED WHAT THE NEXT JOB WOULD BE - HE IS JUST SUCH A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH.

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.  

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
