After a friend of mine could not finish building a shower basin in our master bedroom bathroom, I posted the project on Thumbtack on a Saturday morning. Charles came by within 2 hours of me calling him and looked at the remodel. He said he could come by before I would have to got to work at 8am on Monday to start the project. He came at 8:30 but texted me to let me know he was running behind. Then he stayed and finished the job until it was finished by the time I got home from work. He even texted me the pictures of the final project. It came out perfect!

I had a severe windstorm bring down a side Arbor on my home a few weeks ago, I was contacted by Alfredo a General Contractor through the Thumbnail Site in regards to an estimate to replace it. At that time I found out that the Arbor was improperly constructed, and the wood was severely rotten all the way through. Alfredo, and one of his crew members (Evan) provided Outstanding Customer Care to me and to my home. He provided me with a fair and honest estimate with all the labor and material cost included. With no hidden charges later to add on. I watch him and his crew member, take down and replace my Arbor with astonishing accuracy, to the exact measure. I watch Alfredo do math calculation in his head for this project like Einstein would have done. He raised the height of the Arbor to its proper height, attaching it to the fascia board in the proper manner, and not at the lowest elevation that it was originally in, and attached to my home. And wow what a difference it made to the side of my home. It is aestheticly pleasing, not only from the garden view, but from the street as well. Matching the design of my home perfectly! His Customer Care was above reproach, and not as I have dealt with less than honest and caring General Contractors over the years in this 1958 Vintage Home. I am so pleased and impressed with his services that I now plan to have him replace and repair a damaged Pavilion Deck that a so called general contractor that I hired last year to repair my Pavilion deck at that time, who used improper materials, measures, and calculations reparing it, that I fell through its flooring in early spring. I would highly recommend Alfredo and his Company to my neighbors, family, and friends... And I have every intention of doing so, as well as keeping his Business Card, well in hand! Thank You Alfredo, and your crew member. I have nothing negative to say in regards to this General Contractor! Only Praise. I'm adding the damage pictures now and will add the finish Arbor once its painted on Saturday.

You will not find harder workers and better execution. Loved everything they did, which was all my request for this product project, but also additional custom suggestions. In addition to rehanging cabinets and building new to match, made me a platform to boot, for my washer and dryer. Love everything!! Todd is a jack of all trades also knowledgeable and electrical and plumbing. Hire then you won’t go wrong.

George and his team exceeded my expectations as the architect in charge of our coffee shop tenant improvement project. The level of service was exceptional. To summarize, George does whatever it takes to get the job done when it needs to get done, and does so with a pleasant smile on his face the entire time. The professionalism and responsiveness demonstrated by George and his team throughout the project were exceptional. Between late night emails, and quick text responses, George will deliver a level of responsiveness that makes you feel like your project is the only one he is working on. His pricing is fair and clearly stated in his contract. He won't nickel and dime you. My wife and I had three goals that our architect had to meet; do it quickly, do it cheaply, and do it well. George nailed all three. If we ever decide to build a second location, the choice of architect is obvious. I could imagine anyone working any harder for us than Reset Studios did.

David drew the plans for the new garage that I am building, plans were ready within two weeks. The plans that David drew were submitted to the county planning and zoning folks and were approved with no changes. I found David to be very easy to talk with and he understood what I wanted without complicated explanations. Now. the rough-in plumbing is finished and passed inspection with no issues. Now, the garage is in the hands of the concrete placement people. Would not hesitate to use him in the future, should the need arise.

Ali is a true professional! He and his crews totally remodeled a 2-bathroom, 2-bedroom pool house. He listens to his clients about what they wish to achieve, makes good suggestions, expertly designs a plan and executes the plan successfully and timely. He does not push his own agenda like so many architects and contractors. The passion Ali has for his work makes him an ideal partner in building and renovations.

I needed assistance with a CAD drawing and did not want to purchase the expensive software. The time it would take to learn the software would have also made it difficult to complete my project in a timely manner. I met with Roman and discussed my project with him. He is very knowledgeable with the CAD software and the building industry. My client needed multiple edits to the drawing to accommodate their personal changes and Roman did a wonderful job with each and every revision. He is my go-to for all my CAD detail drawings from this point forward!

I have never worked with an architect before and Ryan is exactly the type of architect I needed to help me with the redesign of my condo. He took the time during our initial meeting to go through the entire process step by step, answered all my questions, and asked all the right questions. He made sure he had a thorough understanding of what I was looking to do, why I wanted to do it, and what I hoped it would look like once completed. As a result, the first draft Ryan produced was spot on. There was one revision to accommodate a few last minute changes I wanted to make and Ryan turned that around very quickly. He was always on time with everything and he doesn't waste time. Rather than ask me to do it, he took the initiative to contact my property manager to obtain copies of the original building plans. With my work schedule I really appreciated not having to deal with that. I would recommend Ryan to anyone. He's been great to work with and I'm going to begin the construction phase with a little more confidence knowing I've got a professional like Ryan to help me out.

We have not yet officially chosen Arcadia Design as our General Contractor, as we are obtaining a second opinion as part of our own due diligence, but I can say that it has been a pleasure to work with Michael to date. He is very knowledgeable in his field and very professional. He has answered all of our questions and has made this process thus far, very easy. I have no doubt that if we chose him for our contracting needs, we will not be disappointed!

I had Arizona Care build a flower bed in my front yard and I absolutely love it! I couldnt believe the job only took 1 day considering that it had only consisted of dirt and rock. Its was a very clean, well done job. He described the details of the flower bed and made sure he was building exactly what I had requested. Definitely recommend this company if you're looking for someone to create what it is that you're imagining!

Ken Miller is awesome to work with! He put helping us to achieve our goals as the primary motivation and he's always very responsive throughout any project. He believes architectural style and beauty are paramount, but only in so far as they help us achieve what we're trying to do. He built his scope of services around our mission and culture, not strictly around producing a building through a factory/textbook process - and he'll spend time to learn that culture before deciding what to do. We'll keep going back to him for future projects because he makes himself available to and present for us, and always has ideas for how to move a project forward. Even our most recent unorthodox project took a complex approach to be operating on time, but the service we expected was the same as before.

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.
