Jamie was great, he responded immediately and was able to meet the next morning. He installed our front door and had to fix other problems from a previous contractor. He did an amazing job and we won’t hesitate to call him on my next phase of construction.

The project was to move a door in our master bedroom and change it to a pocket door. It required him to build new supports, install new drywall, paint, etc. Oscar did a great job and was very responsive to all of our questions. He even went to Home Depot to pick up all of the necessary materials. Will be looking to hire Oscar the next time we have a project at our house. Thanks Oscar!

Eyal is a really professional person that truly cares about any of his job and work and he put a lot of attention in order to make it a success. During the remodeling work at my house, he was very responsive, on time and works really hard to get everything the right way and no less than perfect! We really recommend Eyal, his team and each one from the office that was involved in my project (Kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and laundry room) and I am also willing to present his final work to anyone who is interested.

From the first time Jay came out to give an estimate, I knew he was someone I wanted to work with. Throughout the process, he stayed in constant communication and was always professional. His work in installing 5 doors around my house and garage was excellent. He's a problem solver with a great attitude. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Haggerty Construction!

Frank did a great job of cutting a walkway through an existing wall, adding correct size header and finishing off drywall in one day. He and his coworker worked quickly and cleaned the project up after completion. I definitely can recommend FH Construction and will use them again on future projects. Lynne B

I'd like to thank this team once again for their quality work. In sum, they came in to inspect the area that needed construction and they were the team that spent the most time really inspecting my home and giving purposeful feedback and measurements. They were the team that spent the most time inspecting the area. JDA propsed a budget and they worked on making sure that it fit the budget. They are a team of high integrity, precision, and professionalism. I am delighted with the quality work put forth by this team. I LOVE my floors.

We hired Construction Owl to complete the remodel of our kitchen, including removing a load bearing wall between our kitchen and living room to create one large open space. From the moment we started the project with Construction Owl, we were knew we were in good hands. Guy Hazan is the main designer and contractor. He came to our house, listened to our ideas, and immediately "got" what we wanted to do. In that first meeting, he provided us with specific feedback that enhanced our original idea. Guy is smart, professional, enthusiastic, and kind. He's a wonderful professional, and an even better person. Guy's crew is as wonderful and professional as he is. Guy and his brother David oversaw all the work, from the demo and framing crew, to the fabulous electrician took care of all our requests, to the various crews who came to install the floors, cabinets, counters and tile back splash. Each crew was hard working, kind, thoughtful, and clean. Every detail was attended to, and every concern or question we had was addressed, above and beyond our expectations. Guy told us the project might take about 8 weeks, but incredibly, the project was completed in just over 6 weeks. And it was on budget. We are so very grateful to have found Guy and Construction Owl. We recommend them with highest recommendations, and are so grateful to Guy and his entire crew for their care of us and our home. We love our new space, and have Guy and his team to thank.

It’s always stressful having construction going on in the house, but I was assigned a project manager Joe, he worked around our schedule being that we had to hop around bedrooms as they were working on the master, Joe coordinated the schedule around ours, he really made it a pleasant experience, and the floors look great, beyond our expectations!! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, it’s always good to feel like you got more then what you paid for, we will be in touch for our next renovation.

The team at GIM completed a whole home remodel with solar system. I was looking to make some energy efficient upgrades. My first home purchase and I was looking to invest a little on the interior since the home was a little out dated. They helped me to decide on what the interior finishes I wanted to go with. We ended up using spray foam for insulation, foam roof, and many other energy efficient upgrades. On top of that the solar system also comes with battery back up. Each step of the way I was informed, they even took care of the design and permit process. Great team on staff. Check them out for any construction needs. Appreciate all the hard work.

Excellent service!I highly recommend Ranbay Construction for home or commercial renovations. The minute I met Brad I knew he was the best! My house and office needed a complete renovation and Brad walked me through the process, helped me pick out materials and finished the job on time! He laid out several options in a clear, no-pressure manner, and was extremely communicative throughout the process. His team showed up on time on every appointment, and they completed the work in the agreed upon time period. The clean up was excellent. They are very hard-working, helpful with questions and concerns, and trustworthy. I did a lot of research and interviews with multiple contractors before picking them. Brad was always available to answer my questions and I can't say enough about his company! I'm very satisfied with the overall experience I had with this company and would use them again without hesitation.

I have hired Mr. Jesus Sanchez many times from 2011 to 2015. First, he was our electrical subcontractor for our new commercial building in Downey. Thereafter he has been helping us as the handyman in different types of maintenance works for our properties around Downey area. His is always prompt, pleasant, knowledgeable and the fees is very reasonable. Quinn Nuyen, Manager of Compartment Business Partners, LLC

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.  

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 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.

What is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
