Elena K. says, "We hired Sami & Sons to do a big deck remodeling project. They were highly recommended to us by our neighbors who were very happy with their work. The Scope of our work was such as we had to completely demolish existing deck and arches, rebuild Everything from scratch, add lighting, add glass railing, replace the entire siding on one side of the house and change the supporting beams on one part of the house. I met with the owner, Sami, who is a very knowledgeable, professional and a pleasant person in general. After talking to him, I had a sense that I will be in good hands if I worked with him and his company and that he is trustworthy and a man of his word. He did not disappoint! He delivered on everything that he promised and even more. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. What I also really liked about working with this company is that everyone was immediately accessible by phone! I could call Sami or one of the project managers (Shai or Anthony who both are the most pleasant, polite and professional young men to work with) and someone is always always always there to answer or respond by a text message. The longest I ever had to wait was 30 min for a response. This is very impressive and it is important considering a lot of my neighbors complained that their contractors are impossible to get a hold of. I also wanted to address some complaints some people in previous reviews had about workers leaving garbage or not always showing up every day. Yes, it is irritating and yes, I had the same issues but let me tell you that these are things that just come up during big remodels. Everything will not be smooth, you may get a few bumps in the road. This is normal. What is really important here is how The Contractor responds to your issues and concerns. In my experience, when I brought up an issue (and they were very small), it was remedied right away, no questions asked. I would call Sami or my project manager and I would say, hey there is garbage here and I want it out and the response would be “No problem, it will be removed tomorrow.” And it was! So if you have anything of a concern just bring it up and they will always take care of it right away. They really try to do the right thing. And that’s what matters! Finally, I am happy how my deck turned out. It is gorgeous! Thank you Sami & Sons. It was a pleasure working with you and I would highly recommend you!"See more

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 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.

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.

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.
