John was wonderful. This project started out as a simple replace some patio wood that had some water damage. It turned into a LOT more than that. John kept with it the whole way, helping us save money where we could. But, the project ended up costing 7 or 8 times more than we had anticipated. Not because of anything John did, but because of how bad the water damage was. John got it fixed using some sub-contractors for painting and roof work, with no problem. Great job John! I highly recommend him for your project! Scott M.

Arrived late, but after that everything was first rate. Carpenter contracting was held up because of a subcontractor that arrived late at a previous job. After his arrival at our house, everything went well. He took particular attention to make sure everything was met with our approval. Would recommend!!!

Carson was the Gen. Contractor on our house remodeling. It was an extensive remodeling of both exterior and interior work. The exterior required retaining and decorative walls with extensive regrading and backfill work, new roofing, stucco and painting. The interior included new kitchen cabinets, removal of walls, rebuilding of an entry coat closet with angled walls, new drywall, hanging of new doors, new dryer vent and floor tile. There was a mistake on the dimensions for the new quartz countertop which Carson insisted had to be removed and replaced.This impresed me as he backed me up and not the subcontractor. Carson was easy to work with, knows his business, and was a professional. The quality of the work by Carson Rogers and his subs was of high quality and better than a lot of residencial contractors in the business today. We are very happy with the outcome. I will be calling on Carson Rogers to do our bathroom remodelings next spring.

We were very satisfied with Joe's services. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of landscape materials and plantings. He returned calls and emails promptly, kept appointment times, and pricing was very reasonable. His masonry subcontractor did great work in short time. We are re-doing our front yard in stages, and I can guarantee we will be calling Joe for future needs!

We have installed new Range Hood, Granite countertop, Bathroom shower walls and countertops, Recessed Ceiling can lights, etc. My wife and I are very happy with all the Jobs Jack has done. Now our house looks new and attractive and we love it so much. Jack not only finished the job exactly as what we want, he is also considerate. He tried his best to make only one small hole on the wall when installing all the recessed lights. He is even kind to offer us free trims because he has some left in stock. The thing I like most is how Jack is trying to help us, instead of just finishing the project. He gave us very good suggestions. He helped us find good granite subcontractor, who provided a much better price than home depot, who had so many hidden fees. He also helped us choose the bi-level edge for the countertop, the under-mount sink, which looks so beautify and contemporary, and we like them so much. I decide to install the water filter by myself to save some money, and Jack is so kind. He helped me purchased the right adaptor for tubing, and gave me the instructions how to install it, even without I ask for it. The filter has been installed and it works very well. Thank you, Jack. There are a lot of small things which you can tell how nice Jack is. He helped us put and take back the garbage bin each time when we are not there. He also kindly lend me his scraper for my own flooring project(I am replacing my carpet with laminate floor by myself). By the way, Jack, your scraper is still in my house. Don’t forget to take it whenever you drive by my house. In conclusion, we are very happy with Jack and his jobs, and we will highly recommend Jack for your future home improvement projects. Good Luck, Jack!

Tom Crismon and his subcontractors completed drywall repair in 5 areas of our home, from water damage, and bamboo flooring repair in one room. The work was scheduled quickly and completed in a timely manner. Everyone was professional. There were a few areas that needed additional minor attention once the work was complete, and Tom took care of that the very next day. Quick Response Restoration was easy to contact and communicate with. I would recommend QRR and would use this company again.

I originally called them just for framing. Some of their bids for other parts of the project have been less than what I got dealing directly with subcontractors. I could set my watch every morning when the framers arrived. Weber Restorations always returned my calls and texts within 5 to 10 minutes the few times I couldn't get ahold of them instantly. By the way, I'm not a family member, I am a real client. Philip and Laurie

Shannon did the build out on my 2000sqft retail space. He did a fantastic job and as the general contractor he was on site all the time making sure things went smooth. When I had any questions, he was quick to answer and find a solution. He went above and beyond from the start of the project and after completion. He helped me review the space to make sure we could tear out the ceiling and it would fit my shop needs before I signed the lease. He had architect plans made and got them through the City of Phoenix approval in record time. When construction began, Shannon was not only overseeing the subcontractors for electric, HVAC, insulation, and tile work, he also helped do many things himself. He knew every aspect of the project and how everything should be done right. The project went so well that we were able to open a couple weeks earlier than I thought we would. Thank you Shannon!!!

    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.
