Edwin B.

I am an architect, and I hired AA Cardenas Construction to rebuild a patio roof covering for my personal residence. The construction project required some thought and some careful planning by them to get the translucent roof covering to slope properly and still keep the spacing consistent across the width of the roof. They did an excellent job of adjusting on the fly to make things work perfectly. Their jobsite was neat and safe, they showed up on schedule, and the quality of the work and the attention to detail was excellent. Plus the price was very fair. I am recommending them highly.

Fantastic work. Always punctual, took great care to protect areas that weren't impacted by the construction (such as keeping dust out of other rooms). Did great work.

I highly recommend Kris Kaehler and Economy Home Repair. During our initial consultation, Kris was receptive to my project goals, knowledgeable of the industry and market, and candid in giving feedback on what would work well. He gave very good suggestions for exterior paint colors and a clear timeline for completing the job. Because of his professionalism and attention to detail, I asked him to work on interior painting of my entire home, installing floors, and updating two bathrooms. I am more than pleased with his crew's work and staying on schedule. Throughout the exterior and interior projects, Kris was accessible to my calls, informed me of both progress and issues, offered solutions, respected my home, showed regard for my neighbors, looked after his crew's well being, and insisted on doing outstanding work. He is straightforward in his approach to the job and has high standards of workmanship for himself and his crew. If I had any more work to have done, I certainly would ask Kris to consider taking the job!

Andrew was quick to move forward on our project--I expected it to take much longer--and he took the initiative to find great people to supplement his skills so I didn't have to. His own work is top notch and he held other contractors to his high standards. He's also just a really nice guy to work with--even cleans up at the end of each day! I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.

We had Ryan over yesterday to repair 3 interior doors in a very old and actually historic San Franciscan Victorian house. In addition to the three interior doors, Ryan painted the front door which had also just been replaced. His attention to detail was great, there were constant adjustments to make sure everything fit, latched, matched, didn't drag, looked great, etc. His response was prompt, he replied almost immediately and was available to start the very next day. He came prepared for the job, from start to finish. Ryan is very up front and fair in terms of compensation. You will have zero issue with the transparency and fairness of his bids. It should also be noted that this is a very old building. The areas where the door hinges connected to the wall/door frame were extremely dilapidated, the wood was old and and over drilled. It was like putty. But Ryan rocked it. Not only did Ryan pay close attention to the style of the Victorian building and matched the details perfectly, his finished product was seamless. You can't even tell that work had been done. There wasn't even dust on the floor. It was legit, honest good work. 100% recommend.

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

Fernando was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. He built us extra shelves in our shed and assembled a ramp kit I bought online for it. I am very happy with the work he performed! I would caution to be careful when asking for a quote vs his hourly rate since his quote is a flat rate regardless if he finishes it in less time. The difference was not disclosed to me so I was under the impression the quote followed the same hourly rate he was charging. So in short, if you know how many hours your project will take, simply hire him for the hourly rate instead of the quoted flat rate for a project as it may be a better value. Overall, I would hire him again as it was a good experience and his punctuality was top notch!

Alex has done a variety of things for us in our home & all were very well done. He is fast, efficient, honest & very skilled. I highly recommend him for just about anything you might need in your home or business. Things Alex have done for us include: ~ Installing high quality vinyl siding & trim to withstand our very rough, wet environment. Still look great years later! ~ Installed custom soap stone kitchen counters including under mount sinks & back splashes - gorgeous! ~ Finished our basement to create a guest bedroom, bathroom & office for which our visiting friends & family really enjoy. ~ Super insulated our attic which paid for itself in reduced heating bills in a couple years. ~ Rebuilt our aging brick walkway & patio & they still look beautiful. ~ Rebuilt our fireplace removing old bricks & replacing them with a variety of stones for a much more modern look & feel. Obviously, I highly recommend Alex for any building project you might have. Jon P.

Sergey and the Wise Stage crew are the best contractor team I've ever worked with. Sergey was honest, responsive, and stayed on time and in budget. We had a complicated bathroom addition that included structural changes, plumbing, tiling, windows, electrical and more. They delivered a beautiful and high quality bathroom for us at a significantly lower price than other quotes we received. I give Sergey my highest recommendation. They are the best.

Anthony and Megan from floors to ceiling construction not only exceeded my expectations but made the whole process fun and easy. From changing my mind on the projects I wanted done, to helping me figure out what flooring I wanted (Megan was amazing at helping me figure out what my preferences were), to shopping with me for 2 hours for bathroom materials because picking it out alone was too difficult for me. They worked with my budget and were very patient with me and helped give my house the amazing face lift I needed it to have for a fresh start for my daughter and I. I am so thankful for the beautiful work that they did and for making the process such a great experience. I will DEFINITELY be working with them again!

Just started a project with Raul M. He is full of good ideas and recommendations. His eight years of experience working in the construction industry is very helpful to him as well us. He listens to our requirements carefully and integrates that into formulating an implementable plan. He has started the project on time and expects to finish on time. With his own commitment to himself of wanting to make his clients happy, we expect the project to finish well. I feel comfortable working with Raul.

I had a great experience using prosper construction development services. My friend recommended me their services and I am very glad with the outcome. Our home now is big, clean and has a open floor plan. The kitchen and great room turned out better than I could have ever imagined. The bathrooms spaces now make sense. Everything is organized. I feel like we used every square feet of this house to the best of our ability. The entire process of framing and foundation was fast. Our project manager was always easy to get a hold of. He even offered a few suggestions which we appreciated so much. Since he does have more experience and knowledge with these things. Their prices were fairly reasonable. We got cheaper bids but I felt more comfortable with Prosper development . Great work to say the least. Outstanding experience and again I say I highly recommend using their services.

I cannot begin to express how happy and satisfied I am with the work done by Epic Construction. Claudiu and his entire team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Always on time and always took the time to explain and explore all the option available for a cost-efficient project. The final result was above and beyond what I had envisioned, and needless to say I was extremely happy it. I, without a doubt highly recommend Epic Construction for any small or big project you are considering in the near future. - R. Mìrola

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.

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.
