I used Mike for a concrete power washing job to prepare for my sons High School graduation party. Mike was extremely professional, respectful and would be trusted to work on my home again! Provided and great quote for the job and went above and beyond my expectations! I will be using MK Enterprise s for other more complex jobs as Mike stated that he offers many skilled construction services as well.

Shower installation in commercial building: Michael Vargas arrived promptly to give an estimate on the installation of a new pre-fab corner shower in our commercial site's second bathroom. His estimate was fair, and he agreed to work with his two-man crew primarily at night and starting the following evening. He had experience in solving a challenging plumbing issue in successfully determining the best location for the drain route. Mike is easy to work with, cheerful, respectful, and honorable. He returned a day later at my request to fix a problem at no additional charge. I recommend Mike's business MVP Custom Plumbing for your plumbing needs in the Sacramento area, and he mentioned he also serves the Tahoe area!

I needed a microwave installed above my stove. I thought that my husband was going to be able to install it but after removing the old one, we realized that we better leave it to a professional. We got lucky finding Absolute Building solutions. He reached out to me right away and showed up when he said he would. His pricing was also very far! Home Depot/Lowe’s would have charged me almost double and couldn’t get out to my house for days. He was able to come to my house within 24 hours and install the new microwave like a champ! Thank you so much!!!!

Sam and his team couldn't have been nicer people to work with. He showed up on time each day, cleaned up his work area, did an excellent job building my new fence and completed on time. I plan on using Sam again for other fencing needs.

SW Construction has been doing repairs on our flip houses, and rentals for nearly 10 years. They are honest, fair priced and hard working. You can find cheaper work if you look but you will not get the quality of work Scott and his team provide. They often times have been able to save me thousands of dollars by repairing issues that other contractors wanted to demo and build new. It's never about what is best for SW Constructions profit, but what is the best decision for me as the home owner. I can always trust they will do what is in my best interest. One of my pet peeves is a messy construction site. The thing I love most about them is they leave a clean tidy work site at the end of each day.

The first project Peter completed for me was a fence and gate in a tight corner between my house and garage. The finished result was flawless! Not only did it add to the appearance of the house, but it was also perfectly functional (in spite of the tricky angle). The expertise and attention to detail Peter showed on this first job was indicative of how he does ALL of his work. I have asked him to do many other projects since then -- everything from flooring installations to building custom shelving -- and all of them have turned out beautifully! I trust Peter to do any and all construction/finish work in my home.

My house got a red tag for building code violation and I found Michael on Thumbtack. Michael was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He is fast and reliable in helping me get a building permit with the Sacramento county. He guided me through the process and solved my headache! He drew very nice plans for me and you can tell from those drawings that he pays so much attention to details. I would highly recommend Michael for your architectural and design needs.

Saul has done a wonderful job for us building our business. He was receptive all along for ideas and improvements. He was specially good at anticipating code issues etc and proactively warn us and work with our architect to resolve issues and align before he starts the work. He focuses on delivering value to his customers. We have had a wonderful experience working with him and I can't think of a reason I would want to choose someone else for my next business construction.

This project was to remove the cooktop and wall oven from our 30 year old house and install a range, refrigerator and range hood. This entailed reversing the fridge and range positions, building new custom cabinets, moving power, water connections, adding power for the range hood. It was difficult to find companies who would even propose for the job. Scott saw the full job more clearly than the other estimators and, amazingly, possessed all the skills to do the various tasks. His proposal was clear and explicit. He was competent, quick and thorough. He communicated well and was considerate of our time. The remodeled kitchen now gives us more food prep area and looks great. We have added drawers where we had false drawer fronts before. We found Scott through this site we'd never heard of before and are glad we did.

I hired Mr. Quinley to build a vertical stamped concrete wall with a redwood fence on top of it. My property backs up to a commercial property lot. Mr Quinley did an awesome job. In fact I've had an incredible number of compliments about it. He did such a great job, I hired him to put in two sliding glass doors & a set of French doors.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a general contractor?

    When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

    When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

    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.

    How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

    A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

    Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

    What do general contractors charge?

    If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

    • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
    • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
    • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
    • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
