I have worked with Vela Construction Company for a few years now on several different projects ranging from small to large scale - varying into modernization upgrades and expansions. They have demonstrated a professional and ethical caliber with a willingness to appease their clients and uphold the old school motto of “Customer is Always Right”. The completion target dates have been maintained with very little change orders which is always a plus when you are working with a certain budget. The project manager always goes out of his way to make sure our site inspections with the city were resolved with no issues and all corresponding permits were cleared within a timely manner. The fact that we continue sending business their way is indicative of my satisfaction with this company. Jessica Trujillo, HOA Manager

We hired Ted Woods as our architect to build a new residence in San Bernardino County. We are still in the design phase, so this is a preliminary review without any photos. Ted is exactly the kind of architect we need. We phone interviewed quite a few before meeting with Ted and selecting him for our vacation home rebuild. He's a very knowledgable professional and produces a great product on paper. More importantly he's been a real creative "idea man" on so many levels. From how to maximize space on our strange shaped lot while still including great outdoor space l to reuse of materials and advice on demo and construction. He has incorporated our ideas in an iterative process and some of that has been on the phone and by email since we are remote from the site and his office. He also has connections to many people in the building and construction business around here, including the County offices where our plans will be approved. We look forward to showing off our final plans in the coming months as we move into construction phase with Ted along side us.

Ric Lua and his staff were a pleasure to work with and always responsive to our questions and comments. They prosecuted the work quickly and professionally (remodeled bathrooms, all new windows, scraped popcorn ceilings, all new floors , re-stuccoed house, painted exterior and total re-landscape and irrigation system of front and back yard). We were able to move our sister back into her house within one month which was very important as she was undergoing chemo treatments. We really liked that most of the work was done in-house by Ric's staff. Where he brought in subcontractors (windows/stucco and tile work) Lua managed them and they showed-up on time and completed work promptly.

We recently had the pleasure of employing Charles Garrison of Valley Renovations and Construction. This General Contractor is a consummate professional, from start to finish. His assessment of the job at hand and cost of project, were fair and honest. We employed Charles to originally paint our 3 bedroom villa. When completed, the job was outstanding. He took care and was meticulous. Good work does take time, so we gave Charles free reign on time constraints. With his background as Building Inspector and Contractor, he was also able to do any other home related projects for us. Charles was respectful of our home and with each task completed, he made sure everything was clean and in proper order. We found him trust worthy, as he had total access to our villa. His demeanour is personable, courteous and his communication on all matters was prompt and we were kept up to date by email. With his eye for detail, Charles pointed out several minor issues that needed our attention and was able to address with all of them. We will definitely be calling Charles for any future jobs. He came recommended to us and we would highly recommend him for any home related work.

Jaime did an excellent job replacing the deck. His bid was very reasonable and finished it on time. I bought all the materials and he just did the labor but he buys other stuff needed to keep the project going. He also gave advice on improving the design of the deck. I will definitely hire him again and recommend him to relatives & friends.

About

I've been in the construction industry for 25+ years. I've been licensed as a general contractor since 2003. My history is primarily in rough framing and room additions, but my trade skills also include plumbing, electrical, drywall installation and repair, casework, door trim, baseboard, crown molding, door and window installations, roofing, etc. Over the years, I've managed to network myself with select, quality individuals holding specialty licenses in these and other trades which have proven useful in the event that the scope or timing constraints of a project makes it difficult to satisfactorily complete on my own. Lately, I've been doing a combination of renovations and repairs for real estate investors, as well as room additions and basic remodel work for residential homeowners. I've lived and worked in the Temecula Valley since 1989 and can provide multiple references upon request. I'm a family man, have been married for 23 years and have one daughter. You'll find me honest, friendly, and very easy to work with. If you feel that my services can be of any use to you, please contact me.

I first learned construction at the coachella valley from my family like my dad and the company he worked for but his brothers to when I was growing up they made me go to work. Well as I got older it was harder to get a job so I went to school for it and got my certificate from the Center for Employment Training in Coachella, California.

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.
