I hired Jose on a Friday afternoon to demolish my courtyard after we had flooding after a big rainstorm and faulty exterior drainage at our 30-year-old large custom home. He had a crew of five men here the following Saturday morning working by 8 AM. They did everything he promised quickly and efficiently on time and on budget. I highly recommend him.

Sam was wonderful! How many handymen take off their shoes when they come in the door? He worked tirelessly in very hot conditions, professional at all times. He's a handyman I would recommend to anyone who needs someone who will do the work well at a reasonable price.

OMG! Amazing! Outstanding! I chose DG Construction because I needed several jobs done and I didn't want to hire multiple companies to do the work. My projects consisted of painting the entire downstairs of my 2600+ sq. ft. new home, landscaping my dirt backyard, and putting in a concrete dog run which would be separated by an iron gate that matches the builder's gate. David Gomez, the owner, came out to my home to give me a free estimate. I explained what I wanted in general, and he refined my ideas and gave me some additional ones. Like a smart shopper does, I sought out other companies for estimates so that I could make an informed decision in choosing the best company for the job. Since DG Construction was the only company that could do EVERYTHING that I wanted and the estimate was reasonable and right in the middle of the other estimates, it was my company of choice. I was very impressed with Mr. Gomez. He's young, but don't let that concern you. He's extremely knowledgeable, experienced, efficient, reliable, professional, and personable. He is an on-site boss. He was there at the beginning and end of each work day. His workers were awesome! They arrived every morning between 6:00 and 7:00 and worked throughout the day until late afternoon with only minimal breaks. At the end of the work day, the crew cleaned-up and made sure that everything was left neat and in order. Throughout the entire job, Mr. Gomez kept me informed of the progress towards completion. I appreciated the fact that Mr. Gomez was constantly mindful of my maximum budget when making suggestions to further enhance the outcome of the various projects that I had done. It was unbelievable that at the end of SIX days, all of the projects that I wanted done in addition to a few extra ones were completed! My downstairs is beautifully painted. I now have a nice dog run with a perfectly matched iron gate, and a gorgeous landscaped front and back yard. I was and am elated! The quality of the work and the timeliness are exceptional! This by far was the best and most satisfying construction/remodeling experience that I have ever had. I will definitely be calling on DG Construction for all of my future projects. I strongly recommend that you do the same. I am certain that you won't be disappointed!

Father and son team, My experience has been excellent I can say that professionalism and attention to detail have impressed me immensely. They took the time to not just build my addition but to explain and help in designing my addition. Navigating the permissions and regulations so I did not have to was fantastic.

One of the best experiences I have had with a graphic designer. I've used FIVERR, ZILLIONDESIGNS, local designers, etc...& NONE delivered what I wanted, in the time that I wanted at the price that I wanted in the time that I wanted. Ahmed delivered on all 3 counts + his work was FAR superior. I would recommend him to ANY & EVERYBODY that values my opinion & taste. Cannot say enough good things about him. Professional, timely, affordable, kind, respectful, & talented. I'm a fan!!

I highly recommend Steve Fry for your construction needs! We had a barn door custom made just sitting at our home and in need of installation. Steve responded timely to my Thumbtack request and we made arrangements to meet within a few days. He showed up on time and was prepared to do the work. The door kit was a bit raw, but he knew exactly what to do. He was friendly, and is truly and expert in door hanging. The final product took only a few hours and it looks beautiful. Couldn't be happier. Please call Steve for your construction projects - you won't be disappointed!

My house was updated and remodeled by APCO. I have worked with a number of contractors. APCO is very different. APCO has Laura and Alan who are very talented designers. Their design ideas turned my house into a showcase - something I could not have imaged on my own. They were honest and dedicated to pleasing me. I highly recommend APCO.

Fady was very helpful, positive, knowledgable and went the whole 9 yards to make sure everything went as planned and on time. He was always there when we needed him, and found every way possible to design what we wanted while saving us money. He took our project as if it was his own. Stellar job. We highly recommend the FT group and we are blessed to have found him

Our home design layout is beautiful, yet challenging, as it is a large, free flowing, open space floor plan overlooking the water. Not easy to tie together for a cohesive, unified look. Yet, Mana design showed They are a visionary, displaying creativity and talent. They wealth of experience was evident as designer researched furniture, fabrics, colors, rugs, draperies, and accessories (all to perfection) tying the rooms together for a cohesive sophisticated look.

I am a General Contractor with 25+ years of knowledge and we do a lot of Design Build for additions and remodels. I am very selective about the tradespeople I surround myself with because I approach my clientele as a complete start to finish solution. Armando has been a great discovery for allowing the timely and professional delivery of drawings to our clients. He is a rare find within a world of "talk a good a game, but never deliver" on your word.

I love working with NXT Design. Not only does their team always bring talented designers to the table, but NXT Design can help to solidify an overall brand experience. This was crucial to us as our shared office spaces rely on a strong brand experience in each location. We always hire NXT Design to create the look and feel of all of our offices. They've created a standard for our brand as we continue to expand. NXT Design is also flexible and very easy to work with. They understand branding and design, as well as the construction and development side of it. NXT Design created several craft furniture pieces for us that added a quality custom look we needed. They are also able to assist with quality control of build out of our spaces. We're so grateful for all of their help.

Ray Hawkins, was effective and efficient in the design of my remodel in 2005 and since that time in all aspects of design, restructure on my home. His Design and development company single-handly saved me on numerous occasion. He is professional and knowledgable on all aspects in managing designs. In referring others, I only work with Ray and all have found him to be trustworth and effective. There is not a month that goes by that someone is not stopping by home and inquiring for who did the design on my remodel. In this day and age of design and structuring it is key that you have a professional, experience, licensed and bonded designer who can do it all. This is especially key for women and the aging. Ray Hawkins and group has never failed.

Blair has been great. We are lucky to be able to work with someone so professional and responsive. You will not find such a responsive architect on his level without spending 4-6x the price. Thank you!

Armen came to us recommended by another designer whom we know socially, to help us design a room addition. He proved to be a great choice. He has a good eye for home design, and he was very careful to satisfy all our exigencies of function and space. He was extremely responsive to phone calls and emails and met all deadlines. We now have a wonderful set of plans and digital schematics.

Kuo was referred to me by a friend who had previously worked with him on multiple projects. Kuo most certainly lived up to the expectations. I asked him for a simple yet abstract design that had stumped me and several other designers that I had hired. He had a very prompt response when I reached out to him. He very timely drew up some designs that were absolutely stunning. In addition, he was meticulous and understanding of my vision. Overall, I would definitely recommend him to colleagues.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
