Houman, you are amazing. People love our new restaurant. Look at our yelp reviews for the proof 😊. They can't stop praising about our restaurant interiors on all the social networking sites. Houman went above and beyond in helping us open our modern fast casual restaurant. Our budget did not allow for us to afford an interior designer. Houman stepped in as an interior designer along with the construction of our interiors. His ideas and execution were amazing. We couldnt have done the design so well without him. We had a tight deadline and Houman is the type of a contractor that wont mind working long nights and weekends. He worked around the clock to get us to opening day. The day before opening, late night we had a plumbing issue. Houman went out of his way, and came late nigjt to fix our plumbing issue! Thanks a lot Houman! We are thankful! Houman is very organized, professional and courteous on site. If you are looking for a trustable contractor I highly recomend him! From his Proposal paper work till the finishing touches, everything Houman did for us is Extraordinary! We will work around his schedule for our next restaurant opening

Joel and Cezar came that very day, gave me a free estimate AFTER they had used the camera to see my entire pipe system! I really appreciated their prompt attention and that they actually EXAMINED my pipes before talking to me about the problem and giving me an estimate for repairs. They were very polite, pesonable and knowledgable. They used the snake to router my line and charged only $69. A technician came back the very next day to hydro-jet my line, which completely cleared it and cost me only $250. Unfortunately, the device that measures the length of the pipe was not working and thus, the technician could not give me an accurate estimate of the cost of repairing the separate parts of my pipe system. He promised to return with a repaired device, measure the length and give me another free estimate. I am awaiting his return and awaiting their bill as they said they would send me an invoice. Except for this waiting, I was very satisfied.

I hired Excel Construction LA to a full interior remodel of a 1928 home that I purchased as a rental property, but quickly determined I had underestimated the amount of work and investment required to get it rental ready. As a casual landlord, I did not have much experience with remodeling, managing contractors, estimating costs, etc. But I loved the house and had a vision for what I wanted to create. I chose Excel Construction LA because I felt they understood my vision and would be flexible along the way. I was right and they proved to be a fantastic partner. Excel was always able to provide quality materials at a reasonable price, they were extremely flexible and accommodating working with my schedule and they produced quality work. The managed the entire permit process and went above and beyond to ensure all inspections were passed - not just the city's inspections, but also the buyer's inspectors. In the end, we turned a very run down home in South LA into a beautiful new home that sold for the top price point in the zip code - something local realtors said could not be done. Excel deserves a ton of credit for this. Nofar, Evan and the entire Excel team were super helpful and fun to work with, as was the sub, Jorge. Thanks Excel!

Channing was prompt, personable, and knowledgeable. I hired him to replace door hinges, which he did swiftly and carefully, and he even repaired a couple of places where I had damaged the wood. He knows a lot about all kinds of construction, and I would definitely recommend him.

My dad's circuit panel needs to be replaced, Milton came out an gave him an estimate, it was a little high but he was willing to work on lowering the price (which we greatly appreciate). Collected a deposit to pay for materials and is installing it 3 days after we hired him. I will update once the final job is done but I have no doubt it will be a great turnout. Very experienced, professional and friendly.

My in-wall shower suddenly would not fully shut off. I thought that something in the valves in the wall would have to be replaced. Of the several plumbers that replied, Jesus gave me what sounded like a reasonable quote for the estimated work to be completed, fully disclosing that if the work turned out to be bigger than expected, the rate would be proportionally higher. Jesus had great communication, quickly responding via calls and/or texts. He arrived ahead of schedule the following day. He was polite, professional, and did not hesitate to answer all the questions that I had. He quickly saw that the shower valves needed to be replaced, and reassured me that this could be done without opening up the walls. He fixed the problem as agreed upon, and even helped me with a little side problem I had with an outdoor hose bib. I found Jesus to be punctual, have a good work ethic, and I would recommend Jesus for future plumbing jobs.

I had a GREAT experience with Daniel from World Class Construction! I did not know him before, but he is now my "go to " guy. I had a smaller but very difficult job with some drainage issues and he came up with good suggestions on a repair and his cost and service were great. Also had some additional drywall work done and he was also very fair and competitive. Daniel was also very professional in every aspect, from the contract to finshing the work.

Skyline Construction is doing a large remodeling project me. After many, many previous experiences with construction company's in the past 40+ years, I can say unequivocally Skyline Construction is the BEST I've ever dealt with. Erik's knowledge, involvement, and expertise in the construction business far surpasses anyone I ever worked with on other projects. His integrity and that of his hard working crews are exceptional. I highly recommend them for any job you might be considering. I'm extremely happy with everything they have done or suggested to me.

Monterrozo Construction definitely superseded my expectations. I needed to convert my garage into a living headquarters. Carlos explained everything I needed to know about it. He checked with the city ahead of time to make sure that I was zoned for the conversion and didn't even charge me ahead of time. He was honest and throughout about it. I would use him again.

We contracted Jeff and Rick after getting bids from 5 other companies. We mainly dealt with Jeff for the majority of the job. He is very professional and detail-oriented, which we appreciated. He sent us an estimate and we hired him soon after- but then he told us he made a mistake and needed to charge 15% more for labor costs. We negotiated what we thought was more reasonable and he agreed. After a few more weeks of delay, he told us that Rick underestimated another portion of the job and would have to charge more as well. By this point (5 weeks after officially telling them they were hired), we were anxious to get started so we again agreed to the change. They started a week later and were done in three weeks. The good news is that we're very happy with their craftsmanship- everything looks exactly like we wanted it to. We were just disappointed with all the changes and delays. We will consider them for future jobs as their price for this project was very reasonable compared to other contractors.

The team at GIM completed a whole home remodel with solar system. I was looking to make some energy efficient upgrades. My first home purchase and I was looking to invest a little on the interior since the home was a little out dated. They helped me to decide on what the interior finishes I wanted to go with. We ended up using spray foam for insulation, foam roof, and many other energy efficient upgrades. On top of that the solar system also comes with battery back up. Each step of the way I was informed, they even took care of the design and permit process. Great team on staff. Check them out for any construction needs. Appreciate all the hard work.

We had 3 bathrooms remodeled by hillstar construction, which included 2 complete remodels (master bath and Jack/Jill) and 1 minor updating of guest bath. This is our first remodeling experience and lior and his crew made every effort to accommodate our needs and requests. We relied on lior advise for details and very happy of the outcome. lior responded promptly and communicated well, and his attention to details was really good. We also noticed that hillstar construction used higher end product than other contractors when we compared the estimates and asked specific questions. They installed frameless glass showers and completely replaced floors on two bathroom, changed countertops to quartz replaced we actually had to change painter (from different paint company) to lior crew as we did not like the original work. lior crew completely removed wall paper before painting, which original paint person could not do. Major part of renovation was completed less than 2 weeks, just couple of hours for installing glass showers later and some paint work due to change of painter along the way. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the quality of the work done and the outcome. Also, LIOR went beyond as a contractor as to helping us manage the house while we were away during renovation, and it is very much appreciated. Bottom line, he can really be trusted for the quality of work he provides.

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.  

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 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 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.

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.
