I cannot say enough great things about Jose and the concrete work he did for us! We had several bids and he was the only one who "thought outside the box" and provided expertise and suggestions that ultimately made the end result so much better! We had uneven concrete when we installed a new swimming pool and Jose and his team demo'd all of our existing concrete and came up with a new design plan that exceeded our expectations. My husband and I have some additional projects coming up and we will be calling on Jose to help us. He is an incredible contractor and we are so happy we found him.

My house was updated and remodeled by APCO. I have worked with a number of contractors. APCO is very different. APCO has Laura and Alan who are very talented designers. Their design ideas turned my house into a showcase - something I could not have imaged on my own. They were honest and dedicated to pleasing me. I highly recommend APCO.

Jason and his team were great. He spear headed a tile installation and they got the job done on time and at the price he quoted. Jason's design experience was also helpful in keeping me from making some major mistakes on the project.

Blair has been great. We are lucky to be able to work with someone so professional and responsive. You will not find such a responsive architect on his level without spending 4-6x the price. Thank you!

Amazing results. As with all construction there is always something that comes up. Because our home is old and the previous owners did a lot of DIY projects we expected more than one hiccup. We were informed every step of the way of all items and schedule. We rarely had questions and when we dos they were always answers within a couple of hours. Lia and Ronan are both amazing and I can't wait till we work with them again in our next project.

We wanted to remodel our kitchen. So we asked Lisa to have an opinion on the design we wanted to do. She came to our house to look at the existing design. She was very nice and listened to us patiently. She gave the feedback on our design and even suggested a better alternative. I would recommend anyone who is looking for an architect services.

Full rip-out-and-replace kitchen remodel with custom cabinetry, counters, electrical, plumbing, appliances, external door/window replacements and opening up walls to adjoining rooms. Ephraim bid competitively compared to two other companies we contacted and when selected, he led a top-quality crew to complete a complex job in our home. Ephraim was adept at listening to our wants and needs and was able to take our design ideas and offer suggestions about how to execute with available materials including how much different options would cost. Good communication was always provided on paper with regard to cost changes and design plans. Our new kitchen is beautiful and gets constant compliments on the quality and design. We will definitely be calling Galvin Designer Builders for the next project!

Carly helped us with the visualization and design of the entire first floor of our home. What started as a desire to expand and remodel our kitchen turned into reconfiguring of the entire first floor. We couldn't be happier with the way the interior and exterior turned out. She's really brilliant when it comes to design and combined what we told her we wanted with what makes sense design-wise. We have already referred her to 2 other friends who have fallen in love with our new kitchen and "new" home.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Gerald offered suggestions and design options that we wouldn't have thought of on our own, and our kitchen looks super high end now, without blowing our budget. We are already thinking about the projects we want to do next with him.

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.
