We used Creviston Construction for a ceiling repair in our kitchen. The work was completed perfectly to our needs. They matched the texture of the original surface and the repair is not noticeable; it blends right in. The owner and his team were very professional and dependable and reliable. I would definitely use their company again and am recommending it to all of my friends. Thank you!

David and his crew were great! Very responsive when asking questions, even through email and texts, which were important for me because of other daytime commitments and my inability to coordinate details over the phone. All details were discussed thoroughly, and they were able to add a few extras that I didn’t think of until they were here. They were always on time and professional from beginning to end, explaining each step as they went. Their work was very detail oriented and they did a fantastic job on my popcorn removal, retexturing, and painting. Best thing is that they do a wide variety of types of construction jobs, so I’m already thinking of hiring them again for a new project. I enjoyed my experience with this company and I’m sure you will as well. ***Just as a note: they may ask for a deposit upfront in order to purchase supplies. At first this made me feel uneasy since I had never met them in person, but I did my due diligence and checked out their company beforehand after they supplied me with their company info. All turned out well and we had no issues with giving the card number over the phone. Just wanted to put that out there because I hadn’t noticed this detail mentioned in their reviews. I now feel comfortable doing that with this company. Just a little reassurance.

I got a special deal from AAA for two hours of general contractor work from Global Prevention Services. We have a stucco wall that's about two feet high around a courtyard in front of our home that had a large crack in it, and two hours seemed about right for someone to fill in the crack and paint the wall. The man who came was eager to get the job done, gathered the filler and paint and went to work. Before he painted, he showed us the repaired seam and explained what he had to do since the crack was rather wide. He was competent, friendly and efficient, and if we need a contractor in the future, we won't hesitate to call Global Prevention Services.

Photo updates to follow First, I should say that for a big project like this, I would hire John again, bottom line. That is probably the most straightforward way to assess the renovation as a whole. We hear nightmare stories all the time about significant (and even minor) home renovations and, while we had our frustrations, we went through a big job with few significant complaints. Planning/cost: Initially discussing the project, John was extremely receptive to our budget needs: we had saved up a very specific amount of money, and needed to complete two big projects in order to make the house more appealing to future renters (as we plan to move to a home with my wife's parents for the foreseeable future). The house had only one bathroom, even though it was approximately 1600 square feet. We needed to fix that if any families were going to rent. John understood and very clearly explained where we would be able to save money, what he would charge us for his work, for materials he bought vs. materials we provided, the realistic areas we could go cheap and the areas we couldn't scrimp on. John's price was not just competitive, but frankly made the difference between us being able to have these two complete and dramatic projects vs. one that would have left us feeling wanting. However, it was the price along with the fact that his clients indicated he was flexible and budget sensitive through the whole project that made the decision for us. (We've certainly dealt with people who claim to be able to work with "x" budget, and then everything somehow inflates dramatically over time.) We had a laundry/utility room that was separated from the main house by a breezeway. John connected it to the main house with brick in the same style as the house. He converted the room to a full bath and laundry room with a large shower. Simultaneously, he opened up the bare backyard wall of the main house, installing larger windows and glass french doors. Quality of work/cleanliness: John completed a great deal of the work himself, using a subcontractor to perform most of the brick work and the drywall. The quality, functionality, and look of the work overall was simply fantastic. Day after day they meticulously cleaned up their work, leaving as little footprint as possible on our day to day lives throughout the process, which, frankly reduced the stress that I believe tends to naturally accumulate during such projects. Once we paint it I believe the new brick will be entirely indistinguishable from the old. The brick has extremely clean lines in the same pattern as the existing work, and the finishing work around the windows and doors is excellent. We did have a brief ordeal flushing out a clog that seemed to result from construction debris, but ultimately the plumbing is excellent. Similarly, the shower tile work ultimately is terrific, but we did have a problem with the layout due to an error that John corrected, and it looks wonderful. In the bathroom, he took what was basically a junk/laundry room and installed an elegantly laid out vanity, toilet, laundry hookups on one side, and a massive shower, and utility/cleanup sink on the other, with room to spare. He added a simple half-wall to divide the toilet from the washer/dryer that works perfectly to separate the space. The shower he created for us is enormous and beautiful. Every time we go in the room, we are impressed all over again. The whole room could have appeared like a necessary appendage stuck on to the rest of the house, but that large, bright tile shower makes the room look elegant. Flexibility: I hated to lose my very functional utility sink from that room and hadn't planned for a replacement; however, John helped by coming up with a clever solution to put a sealed brick sink in with the water heater closet. which works perfectly. It's a clean, and very functional solution that I constantly appreciate having, though it was certainly a significant adjustment for him. When we requested adjustments, it felt as though John quoted a bit high to accommodate time and materials (and his added stress). But all in all he was fair and up front about the work, his time, and our options. That being said, there were some frustrations: Our frustrations all come down to communication and documentation. I don't fault John for all of this - his talent lies in the work he does; had we been more on the ball, we would have been more clear and organized ourselves. We had any number of preliminary discussions with John, and agreed to three or four major things up front, that satisfied us the work could be done in a way that would meet all of our needs. But as the project began and progressed, numerous details were forgotten. Specifically, the layout of the utility room and the physical requirements for the french doors to be installed. John repeatedly asked how we wanted to accommodate something as if we had not already come to a conclusion on the matter and we would essentially have to re-figure it out. Specifically, he forgot the layout that best accommodated all of the elements I mentioned above, and he forgot that he would have to "float" the bathroom wall, requiring a different (pricier) toilet than originally planned. Additionally, when he went to start work on the french doors, he had to take extra time to order a lintel that would span the entire length rather than two separate lintels - but, of course these were dimensions he'd known since originally planning the project. Things like this ultimately got worked out to our satisfaction, with one frustrating exception, but if either of us had documented what we'd agreed upon, it would have saved a great deal of hassle and debate, as my wife and I had to re-discuss everything ourselves as well, which reinforced John's feeling that we'd never come to a final agreement to begin with. Time/documentation: While we believe John was more than fair in his billing, the lack of clear, consistent documented days/hours prevented us from having a clear, concrete idea where we stood financially during the project. This impacted us when, in a couple of instances, we did ask for changes (such as installing the utility sink) and he quoted us for the change, though we had no idea whether we were in the high or low end of the overall planned project. All of this is to say: John worked it all out, and he did so in a way that was affordable, excellent, excellent, quality, beautiful work. But, in order to avoid frustration, agreements as to planning should be documented and ongoing days/hours worked should be documented. This would help avoid revisiting complicated plans and would allow for adjustments without having to be in the dark about the bottom line. Day in, day out, we are grateful for the work John did, and that it didn't eat us alive financially, because he did come in right in line with the budget. We love looking through our fantastic glass doors every morning. We have guests stay with us for a day or two, and love having a beautiful distinct bathroom they can use when they stay with us. We love knowing they won't feel they're entering into some dark corner of the house tacked on because it had to be, but that there's a beautiful bath with plenty of space that they can make themselves feel at home in.

We have worked with Carson Rodgers on four projects. A complete master bath remodel, a complete kitchen remodel, a complete secondary bath remodel, and an exterior maintenance rebuild of the patio cover area. The two baths were each about 60 days, with the kitchen remodel taking 90+ days. We enjoyed working with Carson on these projects because of his communication skills of keeping us in the loop as to what was going on and when various phases were going to be completed. While remodeling will always produce some surprises, Carson was always on top of them and walked us through how they were going to be resolved. The quality of work both in the design phase and construction was outstanding. The most significant delay that we experienced with all three remodels was with the plumbing fixtures - whatever availability times we were given when the orders were placed could be tripled. We will use Carson Rodgers on any future projects and have recommended him to friends and neighbors.

Michael responded quickly after I contacted him. He gave his honest opinion on what would be the best option to address my problem versus installing a larger project which would be unnecessary. I found that respectable as he could have made more that way but again was honest and knowledgeable with his recommendation. His quotes were reasonable. Even though he was late due to a roofing project he and his coworkers addressed all that I wanted in a timely manner for again a very reasonable price. Would refer and use him again. Pleased with the work completed.

CDS came highly recommended to me by a friend when I was in need of some remodel work on my home. I contacted CDS and Pablo was quick in responding to my request and provided me with very reasonable price, compared to others. I chose to move forward with CDS, not only for the pricing, but because they acted professionally and truly cared about meeting my needs and getting the job done right. Pablo is easy to get along with and very dependable; he answered all my questions, showed up as promised and returned calls promptly. Pablo and his team completed the job on-time and the outcome was amazing. I am very pleased with the level of service and quality of work that I received. I highly recommend CDS for any of your construction needs. Give CDS a try, you will NOT be disappointed.

About

Northwind Construction was established by Steven Swayze in 1990 as a residential home builder. The company is a Michigan based company and we specialize in residential construction. Northwind Construction has been known as a turnkey operation completing projects from start to finish. We are able to assist customers from start to finish including location searches, site development including earth work sewer and drain, water supply and utility installations. Some of the unique qualities of our business include the fact that we self-perform most of the work and have total control over any subcontracted trades. Customer satisfaction is our goal and we are willing to go the extra mile to develop and maintain quality relationships with our clients. On small projects, we generally self-perform all facets of the project; however, oftentimes in order to expedite work, we subcontract areas such as plumbing, Hvac work, drywall work, electrical, and data related systems. We take pride in our history of employing quality subcontractors. We personally guarantee their work and believe our clients should only have to deal with Northwind Construction with questions, repair, work, etc. We believe it is paramount that a client know who to look to in the event when changes are required or problems arise. After 24 years,our company is scaling down. Although we still take on the occasional full construction project, we have found a niche for contractors and tradesmen working on smaller projects. We believe there is a genuine need for professionals willing to take on smaller projects that are quite frankly overlooked oftentimes as troublesome or insignificant. We are willing and we look forward to assisting our clients with any construction related needs. We recognize the importance and sense or urgency our clients have concerning repairs and alterations. We feel that we are able to adapt to most situations and resolve issues in a timely fashion. The following is a small list of services provided: Room additions, door and window installations, custom tile work, cabinets and counter tops, interior and exterior paintings, concrete, block, brick, trim work, custom flooring lamination and true hardwoods, custom fireplace mantles, etc. The services listed cover only a small portion of our company skill set. From design to completion, we are there to assist our clients. We also offer construction management services because we feel there is a need for a system of checks and balances. Oftentimes, clients do not have the necessary skill sets to question quality and methods used by many contractors. Our goal and commitment to customer satisfaction guarantees quality work at fair prices.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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 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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.

How much does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.
