Rating: 10/10 I had requested 2 sofa's to be picked up and be taken to the dump! One sofa was a large sleeper "L" shaped sectional and the second sofa was a studio sized "L" shaped sectional. Mr. Loera was extremely professional and responded quickly even though I am a night owl and was corresponding late at night. He was able to fit me in-in his schedule and Not only did he arrive on time but he was even a little early. Mr. Loera was very polite and nonthreatening. Easy to approach and got right to work. He wasn't pushy or try to change the price we agreed upon last minute. I would definitely Mr. Loera & James R Loera Construction; to any single females that need help moving things or to anyone looking for a reputable and trustworthy professional. I will definitely be calling Mr. Loera for future projects!

Ed is the man that you would want to get the job done. From our first communication, to the job getting done, he was professional. Ed went beyond my expectations. He added power to my backyard and put the power outlet flesh with the wall. He quoted a price and stayed true to it. I'll be hiring him again for another project very soon. You won't regret hiring him.

Roger put together a queen size Murphy bed from Costco for us at an extremely reasonable price. He was very professional, thorough, punctual, and talented! He is a perfectionist so made sure that everything was done correctly and looked great! He was more than willing to come back the very next day to help us with some other projects- building and hanging cabinets, assembling a toddler bed and hanging drapes and pictures. All A-plus work! I am looking forward to hiring him again to build a closet and mount TVs for us next!! I don't think there is anything Roger can't do, he's super skillfull! Would highly recommend him. :)

If Thumbtack allows users to more stars, I would grade Maha for 10/10! Before our project started, we interviewed almost 20 contractors and Maha is the only one provided the professional in-depth site analysis with very detailed bidding with all items broken down into material and labor as well as the amazing schedule analysis (and we did have the project finished prior to the original projection date). Thru out he entire project process, Houman (owner of Maha) was showing all his professionalism into all the detail and he was on-site everyday working with his crew, providing prompt update and honest suggestion in all area. He also provided very helpful weekly progress summary that help me to show to my management for the update. The entire crew was all professional, friendly, and showing their care to the premise owner every moment. Communication is 10/10 as well. At the end of the project, I noticed some additional item that I omitted earlier, and Houman was able to help me on those as well altho he didn't have to, all respect for that. I definitely will come back to Maha again if I have another project coming, also recommend them to anyone looking for professional and sincere designer/contractor.

Hector is a gentleman. I needed someone to upgrade my elderly parents' faucet with one that I had already purchased, and I was only going to be in town for a day. Hector was able to meet me at my parents' home during my very small availability window. Unfortunately, upon arrival, we discovered that we were missing a part necessary for the replacement. Hector then accompanied us to Lowes in hopes of getting the part locally and when that was not successful, offered to come back after I had ordered the part online and replace it then. I had originally preferred to get the faucet replaced during my visit, because I would feel more comfortable overseeing the project without my parents' needing to involve themselves or their time. However, Hector was so kind and gracious despite the missing part during our first visit that I knew the replacement would go seamlessly even without my presence later, and that is exactly what happened. I will be using Hector again very soon for more projects around my parents' home, especially knowing that I can arrange for work to be done without me having to physically be there. Thank you Hector!

I hired Excel Construction to work on my backyard in early June this year. They were referred to me by a neighbor friend that hired them and was very happy with the work and the results of the remodeling. The property was built in 2000’s and the backyard was old and needed to have a real and massive makeover. The remodeling project was definitely a big one because it included a lot of features that I wanted to do and have. Before the work got started, I met several times with Eyal at my house. Eyal checked the back yard and took a lot of pictures and measurements of the existing space. Later on, in the 3rd meeting, Eyal presented me a 3D design plan that was generated at their office and it contained how my backyard will look like. The design was excellent and in details. That gave me a clear view of what they wanted to do. I decided to make the backyard fit with the style of the house. The backyard project included all the turf grass with nice stones and BBQ area that is the main focal point of the entire space. After everything was approved and the work started, Eyal took care of all the necessary paperwork with the city and he made sure that everything will be done properly. Their team of workers did arrived to the house early of each day and when they got started no one was late. I was impressed with the work ethic of all the people that were involved at my house project from Excel Construction. This proved me that this company is one of the best construction companies around. By having each day workers working at the house, it was very fast before I could see how the backyard is coming into new life and I was excited to see how it was all being put together. When they finished the remodeling, they made sure that everything was cleaned up and the space is ready to be use. I was extremely pleased with their work, and am finally proud to have friends come over and hang out in my backyard.

Scott is solid, honest, conscientious and provides quality workmanship. He responded promptly & responsibly, and started & completed the installation of my pet door when he said he would, including shopping for supplies and providing receipts. He took initiative to understand the operation of the unit, and figured out the most professional method for a great-looking result, including going the extra mile to caulk and finish edges. I am hiring him again for additional projects, such as Solatubes installation, and I have recommended him to clients and friends. Very pleased to have found him!

Met with Baltazar on a Friday evening, received and accepted the quote Saturday and 700 sqft of tile flooring was completed within the following week. I was out of town during the majority of the project and Baltazar's communications with me kept my mind at ease through the entire process. Very knowledgeable and professional approach to the job and I would highly recommend you giving him a shot at earning your business.

The Egal Construction team was one of the most down-to-earth, honest contractors I've ever hired for a job in our office building. When we ran into an issue, they jumped on fixing it in an impossibly timely manner. Five stars, 10/10, all of the accolades I can give. Hire these guys!

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.

Hillstar is hands down the best construction company in L.A. Met with Lior and within minutes we had a dead ready for a room addition. He was very professional and informant. He knew what he was talking about. His workers were professional and clean. Got the job done quickly and respectfully which is a big thing when it comes to construction. I have recommended them to many of my friends and clients and will continue doing so!

Mr. Martel managed our bathroom remodel project professionally, efficiently and politely. Thad brings a rare blend of ethics to his projects. He makes time to discuss desired changes, and follows up to deliver on promises. Results count, and his results were a gorgeous bathroom, and wonderful addition to our home.

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.  

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
