Matthew did a wonderful job on out basement remodel project. His customer service was excellent. He was always on time, a great communicator and easy to work with. He ran the job very smoothly, accommodating our schedules and ensuring that the project moved forward in an organized and systematic way.There were no cost over runs or mistakes. If we encountered any obstacles, he immediately handled them. His team also was diligent and efficient. The project ended up coming out much better than we expected. We would use Matthew again for any construction needs.

There were some problem with my shower installation: even when turning the handle to maximum the water is not hot enough. They fixed the problem quickly. But the price is a bit higher than others. They told me it is hard to fix and the hardware is special compared to other common hardware and I probably need to turn off the water when they are fixing it. But it turns out that they fixed it within 20 minutes without shutting down the water and charged me $500 for two shower rooms. I like their efficient service but I will probably think again about the service fee next time.

Happy wife, happy life! My wife loved Eli and knew this job would be smooth and easy if we hired him and this company, so we signed with Eli and the next day he had the permit pulled for our job. They started working and within a month our job was finished. We spoke with Eli multiple times a week and he informed us of everything that was going on. The inspections passed each time and we are very pleased with how everything turned out. Recommended already to my in laws and recommend to everyone who wants a great job in a great time frame!

I glad that I chosen Rudy for my bathroom remodel, everything from the first day went very well, he's estimated very good compared to others, with legal permits, he and his crew not only did my bathroom, also updated my old electricity with also a very good estimate, I always check various estimates, he's always open to do small projects to help my home to look nicer, my home was built in 1956 but with Rudys help is looking superb, I'm in the process to ask Rudy to do my other master bathroom and the powder bath, having a lot of complement from Family and Friends, thank you Rudy and you crew!!

Kelly was the first vendor to reply to my Thumbtack project. He was also very easy to communicate with (e-mail, phone call and text) and responsive during the whole job. He had to make a couple of trips due to hardware I needed, so we were in touch over about a week's time. His pricing is very fair as well. I do recommend his services. I will be calling on him again no doubt as he also does general repairs and projects in addition to electrical work! Thank you, Kelly!!

Scorpion Services did an amazing job building our deck and gazebo. We are so please they were able to complete the job in 2 days! I would highly recommend them! We plan to use their services for another few projects we have planned throughout this year. Installing grass and sprinkler system will definitely be one of the next projects.

I hired Rick and Ron at R&R General Services to build a cat patio at my house. This required building a custom frame and installing the fence wire, and having a custom door built and installing a cat door into it. They did a very professional job, got it done in the minimum time. They were flexible and cooperative as we worked out the details of the design together, and then implemented it flawlessly. Rick also worked with me to accelerate the work on the custom door which was being done by a subcontractor - it took a little finesse to get our small job put at the front of the line in front of some larger jobs, thus saving several days on our project. Both Rick and Ron are good-natured and friendly, as is their assistant Aaron, who helped with finishing the new door and installing the hardware. In summary, I am very happy with the work that R&R General Services did for me, and I would be pleased to hire them again for other projects at my house.

Shmuel and the team were very receptive to all our requests and easy to communicate with. The job was completed within the planned budget and time frame. They truly care about doing the best for their clients, and it shows. Highly recommended.

I used J.A. Services in two occasions. On the first, they furnished my SOMA tri-level loft as a furnished rental unit, and on the other occasion, they staged my loft for a sale. J.A. Services not only met my key requirements but also exceeded my expectations on both occasions. My key requirements were as follows. For the rental, I wanted a modern and comfortable living environment with inexpensive furniture that did not look cheap. For the staging, I sought to maximize the value received in the sale. For both, J.A. Services exceeded my requirements. J.A. Services also completed their work on a very tight schedule, allowing me to market my unit quickly. I very much appreciated J.A. Services and their excellent eye for designing contemporary, urban, and comfortable living environments.

We wanted to remodel our kitchen and bath and after doing some research on Angie’s List, Thumbtack and Yelp and consulting with several contractors, we received several proposals, refresh and build caught our eyes. It was very professional and very clear, not just a price tag, also the company is licensed and have the proper paperwork to get the proper permits So we decided to move forward with Refresh and Build, they were quick in getting us the permit and they started a week after signing the home improvement contract. The whole project only took month, everything was done like scheduled, there was no delays, communication was perfect. The quality of work is outstanding, there was not chipped tile or unlined grout lines, the cabinet were installed perfectly and all the inspections were passed. We recommend Refresh and build for 3 reasons: Good price, good quality and deliver on time.

I was able to schedule estimates with 5 contractors for my bathroom remodel. Each definitely had their own approach with a few being extremely pushy trying to talk me into doing work I didn't want to do! I believe Green line was the 3rd appointment I had and Manuel Sr & his son Manuel Jr definitely stood out to my family and I. They listened to what we wanted, gave me a few options and honest recommendations (which actually involved less total work = less money). I really appreciated the honest no pressure approach. It was also very clear to me that they had a lot of experience because they were able to point out a few things that no other contractor brought to my attention. Service: I'd say the entire process was pretty seamless, Jr or Sr were always available through call or text, no issues with cleanliness or picking up materials. They use a progress payment system so we paid them as they completed certain phases of work which I really liked. They were able to recommend retailers for the finish materials which was very helpful. Work Quality: Craftsmanship excellent, tiles were set beautifully and look stunning. About half way through we decided to go with their recommendation of doing level 5 texture through the vanity area into the bathroom (which they gave a VERY good price for), this was a great suggestion as it really helps in bringing a cleaner modern look. Paint, vanity and fixture installation were all done very nicely. Over all very satisfied, we will be calling Green Line back to do the guest bath in a few months. Price: They were not the cheapest estimate I received. I decided to hire them because they felt trustworthy. Which is a hard thing to achieve after one meeting. However I am EXTREMELY pleased with the price I paid for the finished product. They explained to me in out initial meeting that this type of finish work requires a certain amount of money to do properly which I completely understand now. They were also not the most expensive which is surprising for the transformation they accomplished. Thanks guys! -Christina

Moran helped us with getting a planned drawing (architectural and structural) from an engineer for load bearing wall removal. It was very easy to work with him and his communication and attention to detail were on point. We were very glad to work with him through this phase of our renovation. My husband and I highly recommend him and his services. Give Pacific Remodeling & Design a call and see what they can offer you. Moran will walk you through everything!

Summary: On time, on budget, no surprises. Nobel Construction was recommended by our solar installer. (We also contacted Yelp-recommended roofers closer to Menlo Park, but they were booked a year out.) A representative came out when scheduled, showed us alternatives in our local area and generally took care of everything in a reasonable and timely manner. City permitting was 100% dealt with. After hearing all of our options we chose to have the roof repaired/restored with a fairly new product and procedure.....100% Silicone Roof Coating. It is a white reflective coating that looks great and has already saved us hundreds in our electricity bill right off the top. The product is warrantied for 50 years and was much less expensive than the other roofing options. The crew were polite and efficient. It's a noisy job, but they were respectful of the neighbors. We had no issues with communications, billing, or paperwork. The city inspector was happy with everything he saw and all in all it was a win-win!

We wanted to expand our home but were unsure if we wanted a sunroom or a full addition. That was how we found Warren at GlennGarry Construction - GGC was the only company I could find in the Bay Area that not only did sunrooms but also general contract work. Warren worked with my schedule to arrange our initial meeting and took the time to walk us through all the pros and cons of either type of project, including costs, building materials, permit requirements and other steps. He took almost two hours of his own time in the evening to consult without charging us. Once we settled on a sunroom, he provided a clear timeline and walked us through what to expect. He delivered within the early end of the timeline (almost two weeks earlier than I really expected!), on budget and with clear guidance on what to expect at each step. He was responsive by both email and phone and provided regular updates on progress without having to be prompted. We are very pleased with the end result and based on his professionalism and responsiveness, I will absolutely be recommending Warren to friends who want to complete projects on their homes.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
