Jose and his team took a back room down for me at my house. He quoted me a price, and was true to his word. His team showed up on time. They were professional, worked hard, and actually completed the job ahead of time! Jose had estimated it would take a couple of days for the work. He was able to complete the job in one day. I cannot state how important it is to hire people who are honest and honorable for work you do on your home. There are alot of dishonorables out there....Jose is one of the good guys. His team cleaned up before they left - i think my yard was actually cleaner than when they arrived. I will use Jose and his team again for other construction projects in my home!!

I needed a couple of panels replaced on one of my patio covers. Keith arrived on time and completed the job in a short amount of time. In addition, he was friendly, did a great clean-up, and I'm pleased to say there were no "hidden" charges. The final cost was the initial estimate he provided to me. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who can use his services.

Jose from JP Custom Home Construction is a total pro. Courteous, punctual, and a great value. I scraped a popcorn ceiling in one of my bedrooms; Jose sanded, taped, texturized, painted, ran electric, and installed a ceiling fan/light. Amazing work. I will definitely be using this little company again!

My project was a complete renovation of a 1972 built condo. The unit was completely stripped down to the concrete walls, floors and ceilings. All internal partitions were removed. The original floor plan had the access to the small bathroom through the bedroom. The new layout now has a hallway to a large and yes "fabulous" bathroom. The toilet was relocated by the use of a Kohler in wall tank toilet which I really like. Not only does it have separate pee and poo buttons, but the bowl is wall mounted.... no more nasty cleaning around hard to reach floor mounted regular toilets. The kitchen is completely new and was redesigned to take advantage of the space and now feels huge. Since the ceiling is concrete, there were no ceiling lights or ceiling fans. In a non-airconditioned building, ceiling fans make it so nice. The ceilings were furred down about 1 1/2" to incorporate the wiring and and the fan junction boxes. The lights are LED Philips surface mount lights. It looks like there are canned lights (all dimmable) but fit into the 1 1/2" furr down. All of the construction was done with permits from the City of San Diego and Cherl included the condo association on her insurance to make sure that everyone was protected. The cork floors look amazing. Not only are they eco friendly, I'm sure my downstairs neighbor is thrilled too. The sliders were replaced on the balcony so that they stack and open to a huge, connected feeling that makes the condo feel much bigger. The project started June 28th and was completed September 25th. Less that 4 months from stripdown to completion. Considering the difficulties of dealing with high-rise construction and the HOA, Cherl did a great job. Fabulous in both our words!!

I found Chris when I was given one of his fliers by a friend who raved about his work. I only deal with licensed contractors, since I've been burned before and there's little recourse when they disappear or change their phone#, plus eventually I have a lot of work I want to get done and I want it all legit in case I need permits,etc... And licenses tell me a person has made the effort to put his time in, learn a trade, and become licensed. It's cost me more money to fix things that have been done sub-par over the years. The paint on my house trim was peeling and I could see the wood was becoming damaged in some areas, which means more money to fix rotted wood, so I was anxious to get the exterior paint done. I shopped around. Chris gave me a fair estimate, plus he was confident in his work and I saw the results at my neighbor's house. I loved that he was very respectful of my house, my yard, clean up, and his work was so clean! He gave me a head's up that some of the wood may be more damaged once he sanded the old paint. He showed me the damaged wood and gave me the option to fix it or not, which of course needed to be done. He replaced some old window sills and window frames. You can't even tell which ones he replaced! Everything matches the other windows! I couldn't be more pleased. After a few weeks I saved some money and was still so excited about the outside of my house finally getting done right that I decided to get some work done in the bathroom. My house is 90 yrs old, the interior walls have plaster not drywall, which many guys don't want to touch, but Chris said "No problem!" it's one of his specialities. He explained what's involved, wrote an estimate, and now I've got one bathroom done and it looks AWESOME! My husband is impressed. We're going to have a dinner party with friends to celebrate. Chris is a solid guy with good old fashioned work ethic. We have only great things to say about his work! After the new year we're going to save money and have a deck built so my husband can barbecue outdoors. Thumbs up times a hundred!

I hired Patrick and Scott Coggins Construction to build patio. They were professional, courteous, fairly priced, and cleaned up after themselves every day and were a pleasure to have in my home. They also over completed handyman projects and they were fairly priced with that as well. I highly recommend Coggins Contruction for any future projects. Their reviews and pictures are what drove to this decision and I'm glad I took it because, I will continue to use them in the future.

I was very happy with the completed landscape project. Bill Sullivan sent 2 extremely good workers who removed a giant yucca plant, added to an existing wall while finishing it with stucco and a flagstone cap, as well as created a beautiful border between the sidewalk and the front yard with attractive-looking pavers. The price was fair and the quality, as well as the aesthetic of the finished work was excellent. I do think Mr. Sullivan knows his construction business, but he is not as responsive or really good at communication as I would have preferred. All in all though, if you are patient and flexible, the work was done very well.

I needed someone to come trim 2 extremely tall (over 25 ft.) out-of-control palm trees. Enrique came to the house the same day I contacted him. From the first handshake, I knew he was an extremely honest, knowledgeable guy who really cares about plants and trees. His price quote was very reasonable and he left the area cleaner than when he and his assistant began the job. Not only that, but I hired his wife to clean my house and she is fantastic! Enrique was back at my house yesterday afternoon to discuss another landscaping project, putting down new gravel on the parkway adjoining my driveway and really delineating the space, and again, he just took a look at the space after measuring and was able to give me a very decent quote for the work involved. I have full trust in this honest, very professional guy with a great work ethic. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

I though John communicated very well during our construction project. He was very flexible on any changes. Most contractors are very flaky; not showing up on time or wanting to get paid before the project is completed. You will not go wrong hiring John. He is top shelf.

Jose and his team removed and replaced our hard wood floor after a flood in the kitchen that spread to the rest of our condo. Jose was very responsive and helped us find a floor that was a very close match to our prior one (our prior one was out of production). He gave a very competitive estimate and was open and honest throughout the process. Jose and his team arrived on time and completed the job in the time that they said they would. He also fixed some drywall and replaced all of the floor boards. The most important thing is that he was mindful of our budget and worked within the boundaries that we set. Overall, Jose and his team did solid work and were very responsive. The only reason that I don't give him 5 stars is that there was a bit of clean up after he was done, which wasn't necessarily part of the job, but would have been a way to go above and beyond.

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.
