My experience hiring David was great. He is professional, punctual, and did a wonderful job for me. I hired him to re-stretch carpet around my open-floor plan kitchen. It all looked very messy when he arrived and looked very complete and finished when he left. I would recommend him and hire him again.

David impressed me with his promptness and professionalism. We spent over an hour going over concerns with my project and with David's insight and expertise we were able to draw up plans and complete the job in just a few days. I am beyond satisfied and will definitely be utilizing DG Construction for future projects!

I had a unpermitted room addition that the city wanted plans and permits for. Alan help me with the city helped me with things I didn't know how to do. he was quick with the plans and then when we resubmitted the plans he was right on time again couldn't have been happier with this service. I'd use them again for any architectural plans I may have in the future

Fady has thus far been terrific to work with on the plans for my home addition. There has been quite a bit of back and forth with plan change request on my part. Fady has been very accommodating with the changes. His pricing is fair, and I believe the end result will be worth the investment.

I cannot say enough good things about Guy and his crew. Amazing job from start to finish. Guy took our small idea and turned it into a masterpiece! He was on time and on budget! Two things that I thought were unheard of when it comes to remodeling! Guy was patient and responsive and answered every question without judgement or delay. Construction Owl will most certainly be our first call when we begin our next home remodeling project.

I am so happy with Mazi's services (Mana Design) . He completely designed and drafted the new layout and design for my shop. He got the city approval and pull the permit. It is not easy to find someone who you can trust and has experience in commercial interior design. After interviewing with many people, my partner and I, picked MaNa Design because we found Mazi so professional from the day first. Until the final day, he was on top of his schedule and we were in touch via any cominucqtion system such as FaceTime, Skype, etc. and personal meeting during those 10-days. You must see his beautiful showroom, it tells how he cares about every detail. His company is a real example of success and novelty. I am writing this comments to share with everyone our wonderful experience with his design services. We are going to buy all materials that we have chosen from his showroom and we will defiantly use his company - Mana Design Build Inc - to do the construction part. He is licensed and bonded and as far as we did research on his company, he did many beautiful and amazing construction. I hope the above comment helps you all.

I found VR Drafting on Thumbtack and Vicente was the best of all the architects that contacted me in terms of how he was active in responding to me and his rate. He offered the best rate I've found. He drew a plan for my enclosed patio (I already have a patio,) and wanted it to be enclosed. From the time we met up to completion of the plan took 2 weeks, 3 weeks at the city, and 2 more weeks for corrections. The correction process was a bit confusing because that was where he and my contract got into a bit of a conflict. Vicente wanted an engineer to sign off on the plan and that would have cost $400-$500 more, but my contractor rushed him to get it back, in which we received it back in 2 weeks with corrections minus the engineer stamp. We re-submitted it and got approved. To this day, I am unsure as to why Vicente recommended the engineer approval? During the process, Vicente drew up a plan for my bathroom conversion as well. The plan got approved instantly at the counter at the city. That plan also took about 2 weeks to draw. I thought Vicente was professional, knowledgeable, and did a good job in satisfying his client's needs. I thought the timeline was good, so please be sure to discuss your time frame with him. Additionally, I would have given Vicente a 5* if he and my contractor had gotten along. I am a first time homeowner and these projects are my first two projects; therefore, my view can be limited. However, I will contract Vicente again for future projects as he delivered a satisfactory job with a decent/negotiable price.

Cristian was amazing. I needed to convert the space above my garage to an ADU... he did the drawings, worked with the plan check, worked with the inspector ... it was a seamless process with Cristian. He is incredibly reliable, honest and trustworthy. I highly recommend him.

As a client of Sitework, Carol Strober has been a life saver for me. I have had to update and remodel my Tudor Revival home for sale. Carol has been by my side every step of the way, going way beyond what one could expect. Updating every room in the house, she has consistently offered many options that remain in keeping with our home's style, our budgetary needs and, most importantly, our tastes. I don't know how she accomplishes all 3 at the same time, but she always does. When forced by my insurance company to reroof with composite materials, a section of wood shingle siding had to be removed. There was nothing underneath. Carol designed a half timbered masonry wall with a Tudor window that was stunning, then hired great masons to build and install. The result is a facade that you would swear is original. She has also remodeled my kitchen, pantry, and 4 bathrooms. She's updating all the other rooms. To note is the striking crown molding she added to my round turret entryway. Perfect for the house and quite eye-popping providing a great first impression. She even designed a new garage door that appears to be a beautiful old-fashioned double set of doors, but is instead a wonderfully modern mechanism. Even my neighbors have had to ask if it's 2 doors. Curb value has soared. I recommend Sitework whole-heartedly. With Carol's knowledge and design sense, coupled with the work force she has assembled, you simply can't go wrong. I am so happy with all the changes. Now I don't want to move.

Roi Lapeyre did an excellent job of redrawing the plans and taking them to the city. He found errors in the initial plot layout from previous plans and corrected them. He got the plans approved through the city for us but the process took longer than anticipated.

I have worked w/ Marie Roviello twice- The first as associates, where our firm was the architectural firm of record on a project that Roviello Design was brought in to do interiors on & the other (after) as a client. That I had previously worked along side her and later hired her to work on my own house probably says it all. Because of her architectural background, she has much more experience in many of the realities that most interiors people just don't have the knowledge to bring to the table, (materials, code, structure) Her aesthetic is fairly broad, but her strength probably leans towards a contemporary, high-end New York sophisticate. many interiors people, spend an unusual amount of energies shoveling fantasies into their clients and all the while are silently tiptoeing in the background through the project - until one grand day, they hand you a finished product wrapped in positive reinforcement. A product that often times seems disconnected from the occupants & ends up being more a "stage" than a home. "wrangling the coalition" between client, designer & the trades is where Roviello Design's real strength lies. They (R.I.) realize that the best answers come from a partnership, where the clients wants and needs are respected. and all the "realities" are metastasized into something (from what I have seen) that people love.

I had an opportunity to work with him for my last two houses plans which he did from A-Z. My last house plan had lots of ups and downs from my side which took him longer to finalise the last draft. Almost he had to redo the plan to consider our needs.

I worked with Jessica from the Design Cure when we purchased our new house in June of 2016. We had A LOT of painting to do and no clue where to start in terms of selecting colors, buying the right paint, and getting the overall look and feel we were shooting for. Jessica did a fantastic job! We sent her images of the house and our furniture, drew out a floor plan, then she helped us decide on a color palette and supplies that would fit our budget and our style. We are thrilled with the result- she was fun to work with and very responsive- we would highly recommend her to homeowners and businesses alike!

We retained Modal Design to undertake a remodel of the interior of our 1930s Spanish-style home. Daniel Monti brought his talent, creative and coherent vision, impeccable taste and modern aesthetic to transform the interior of our home into a gorgeous, clean, refined, timeless, contemporary Spanish that is uniquely ours. He managed our expectations, accommodated our budgetary limitations and worked closely with the contractor and engineers, giving due attention to the smallest of details, from the plans and drawings, to the selection of materials to installation/construction. In addition to his talent, most appreciated was Daniel's complete honesty and trustworthiness - making what can become a stressful time into a highly pleasurable undertaking. We would love to do a remodel again with Modal Design! We highly recommend Modal Design without any reservations.

Michael was extremely thorough in carrying out sun and shade studies for our complex to evaluate the impact of a new development next door. He went much further than requested and reviewed the development's architectural drawings to identify not only specific issues for our complex, but also offer detailed design solutions that we were then able to take to the city's planning commission. I strongly recommend Michael for his vivid design acumen and strong work ethic to anyone needing hands-on and innovative architectural design services..

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.
