I hired Jose on a Friday afternoon to demolish my courtyard after we had flooding after a big rainstorm and faulty exterior drainage at our 30-year-old large custom home. He had a crew of five men here the following Saturday morning working by 8 AM. They did everything he promised quickly and efficiently on time and on budget. I highly recommend him.

Contemporary Design Builders did home remodeling for me a year ago. It was a 15-year old house and the space was not so well designed. I bought it for flipping. The remodeling crew in Contemporary Design Builders removed the walls and created more space in the living room. Then they installed a new kitchen, the new wooden floor, and repainted the wall. It was a huge amount of work. Luckily the project manager made sure everything was under control and I didn't get unexpected trouble. I sold the house with a higher price than the amount I paid and the remodeling fees. I really wanna thank Contemporary Design Builders for helping me remodel the house. I made the right choice.

We found Matthew by doing a local contractor search on Houzz. Matthew came into our house and redid our Kitchen counter tops, backsplash and sink/plumbing. He did a great job, finished in the projected time frame and was very clean and paid very much attention to all details and made sure that everything he found was up to code. He then did a complete remodel of our 2 original bathrooms in our 1957 home. We had custom tile throughout both bathrooms and showers, custom vanities made by a company he referred us to along with new plumbing. Matthew is a great communicator and hard worker making sure that everything comes out perfect. He will go above and beyond to make sure it is just right; his attention to detail is spot on. He not only listened to what our vision was, he was able to deliver just as we hoped along with adding extra touches that we had not thought of. I cannot emphasize enough how lucky we were to have such an honest, hard working contractor who made the whole process as painless as possible. We have no hesitation to use him again for future work and will 100% refer him to family and friends.

Jaime came out quickly and provided a reasonable bid for a short stretch of fence. I wasn’t sure what color to do for the fence, as the rest of our yard fence is either brick/ rock or iron. Jaime identified a stained gate and suggested that we stain the fence to match - great idea! He created a cedar fence to fill gaps where we couldn’t finish the brick wall. The fence was completed in a day, which was awesome because my dogs had been locked in for a couple of weeks while the brick wall was being built. Jaime was on time, communicated well, listened to my requests, and completed the work on time. He left the site neater than when he began. Jaime has extensive experience in concrete work. Definitely call him if you have a concrete job, as well. The last two days, Jaime has been working on my neighbor’s gate! They were so impressed with him they hired him on the spot when they say the work he did for me.

Working with Stoneridge Construction LLC was an absolutely outstanding experience! Alan and his team assisted me with the construction of a custom built dog crate for shipping my Great Dane. He received my order details and made the crate within a few weeks and provided me with construction updates along the way. I will be using this company for all my future carpentry needs.

This is my strong recommendation for Coggins Construction. Patrick of Coggins Construction is a local licensed contractor professional with over four decades of experience under his belt. We spent a lot of time talking with him discussing options and both he and his wife visited our home on the weekend. We hired Patrick to demo the front living room, demo the entryway, remove skylights, and reframe everything the original as built state. Patrick and his team have a passion for construction and it shows on the job. We had a strict timeline to meet. They showed up on time, worked hard, and cleaned up well after each day. Also they were very kind to my family, even my hyper Chihuahua! I had a few scope changes throughout and Patrick was able to accommodate my requests with great price and no impact to schedule. Thank you Coggins Construction for transforming our house into a home!

I have a large ongoing landscape project with Sal who has been punctual and professional at every milestone. He goes into detail in explaining what needs to be done and the timeframe for each part of the project which is greatly appreciated in knowing what you are paying for. He gave plenty of feedback when choosing the materials we are using and there were a majority of choices to allow us customization to the landscaping for all aspects of the project. Even though I've still got the project ongoing, I've recommended Sal to other friends who have interest in starting landscaping projects and will continue to do so.

Working with Zenith Construction was hassle-free. We had them pour new concrete in our backyard patio area and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. Zenith also painted the entire interior of our home as well installed some new can lights in our kitchen. Their work is very clean and they remained within our budget.

SD Home Pros has been so helpful and patient with me through this process. I had them put in new stone flooring which I love. Once they started the project I decided that there were other items I wanted to upgrade and they worked with me and helped me through the process. I am so appreciative of everything Mario and his team has done for me.

Like all projects, there will be overrun and surprises a long the way. Plan ahead and make sure you detail out what you want to do. Down to even measuring for the most successful project and cost savings on materials. Bill is a honest hard working man and is in high demand. He works around the clock on multiple projects so scheduling was probably the most difficult part of the project. But Bill is responsive and adds value to our project. We ran into a few issues that Bill was able to work through. Even after having paid Bill fully, he still came back to fix issues/flaws we've found without complaint. My only recommendation to those looking to hire Bill is to make sure to know what you want (design, materials etc), write it down, and walk through it with them first. They aren't mind readers. Follow up is key. Also make sure you have enough time for your project because surprises always cause delay! Usually projects are one and done and the contractors just walk off. With Bill, we developed a relationship and understanding. Would I hire Bill again? I already have. Bill is honest, hardworking and responsive.

It's been an absolute pleasure to have Kory work on several projects in my home. He's got solid design/architecture credentials from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, and so he's got a great vision for projects, large and small. Very talented on the build/construction side of things, too, so a nice balance. Upbeat, friendly, fair and stands by his work.

We Love our front porch that Richard did in the front yard gave us space that we have always wanted for those warm summer evenings. We also had Richard build a backyard patio cover that our cat loves during those rainy days and gives us the shade we need for bbq in the back. He came up with some great ideas and got the project done quickly. We are so pleased with everything he did and really made our house feel so much like a home that we can enjoy.

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.
