We are in the beginning stages of the project, Nick and his crew will be covering the slump block front of the house with stucco and painting the rest of the house, including replacing some of the fascia boards. I have been impressed with his dedication to detail and insistence on our complete satisfaction with all aspects of the work.

Armando did an amazing job drawing up the plans that included an entire home renovation. He is very kind, understanding and patient. The town approved our plans quickly with his drawings because they included so much detail. We would recommend him highly.

Gideon designed and drew an extension to add an additional room at the back of our house. It was a tricky addition as it had to fit in a tight space between our house and our swimming pool. Gideon did a great job designing an addition that gave us the most room possible in the space available. We were very impressed with his attention to detail especially when it came to talking to the city and getting them to agree to how we could use the space around the pool. When we were getting quotes for the addition it was clear that, although the builders were confident they knew all the rules and regulations, Gideon’s homework on how and where we could build near the pool was much more accurate. Going into the process we were very confident that we knew exactly what we wanted, but Gideon improved the final design significantly by not just designing and drawing what we thought we wanted, but also giving us options for what was feasible that we could not have imagined on our own. Gideon was extremely pleasant to work with and was great at keeping us in the loop as he was working on his designs. We would definitely work with him again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
