James was fast, efficient, and solved every issue I had -- including coming up with ways to solve problems as they arose. He was very responsive -- i'm just now getting responses from people asking me to send them what i need and yet he finished the work 7 hours ago. He was careful, took the time to do the project right and didn't let obstacles slow him down. I would definitely use him again, and his contractor experience is a great help to whatever he was doing...he gets the job done!

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.

Michael did an awesome job! He was prompt and went the extra mile to make my entire bathroom and shower tile sparkle. He was even able to make my pebble stone, shower floor shine. He also repaired some sections where the caulking had been poorly done by the original contractor at no additional cost. I will definitely use him for all of my future jobs.

Hector made several electrical and plumbing repairs/installations at our home (inside and out), which included rewiring the recessed lights in the ceiling (which were flickering) and related drywall repair as well as repairing a leaking toilet. He also fixed a short in our bathroom light fixture, replaced a sprinkler valve and installed a new shut-off valve on an exterior copper pipe leading to the sprinkler valve. Additionally, Hector kindly offered to replace an electrical outlet and fix loose electrical outlet boxes for only the cost of parts. Hector is respectful and a mild-mannered professional. We have several other home improvement projects in mind and look forward to working with him again in the near future. Honest + Reasonable Prices + Quality Work = Highly Recommended!

I had a wood fence project which was quite complicated because one 20 feet long retaining wall had to be built before the wood fence installation. Tim took this hard project. He and his crews, Ryan and Nick were all hard workers. Every single day, they came to the job site on time, did everything they should do according to the construction code. Besides, Tim was very attentive to my needs and modified the original construction plan by adding one 6 feet long concrete block wall to the iron gate. I am very satisfied with his professional service. Tim is passionate about his job, which makes him outstand other contractors. I'd like to recommend his service to any other's project!

Golden Oaks Kitchen, Bath and Flooring company was our contractor to do all repairs on our home damages caused by water damage that happened to our home due to water leakage which was started from second floor bath room and flooded to 1st. floor damaging, dray walls, cabinets, laminates +++ .. at 1st. and second floors. This company started their restoration and repair works the day after we signed the contract. Their crew were very professional in their fields of repair and replacement, they were trying their best to satisfy us. Any time that we had comments for adding more repair at one area or paint the areas in a color to match other paints , they were not arguing that and wanted us to be happy with what we need and what they did for us. They were always on time and also helped us to deliver new cabinets, toilets ++++. Overall everything was done on a very smooth way, on time and the way that we wanted to be done.

I submitted my request and Shawn was able to come by and give me a quote and do the work the same day. No other contractors that I spoke to that day called back like they said they would but Shawn followed up and showed up ready to work. I've already received so many compliments on the work that he did finishing my Quartz Stone Accent Wall. Thanks Shawn! I would recommend him for sure for other work and to others

After purchasing our new construction home in the Sky Ridge Community, we had several contractors come out to submit design plans and bids. Being from the area and owning our previous home just 5 miles away, we had contractors we have used before also participate in the process. Ultimately we took a chance on the unknown and went with DG Construction. Our gamble paid off we ended up with a beautiful back yard and quickly learned to trust Owner David Gomez with his ideas. The process from start to finish was very smooth and his team was very professional and hard working. DG construction met all their timelines and delivered a transparent billing process that was easy to follow and didn't have any surprises. If you are a serious about using DG Construction reach out David and I am willing to let him show you an example of his work.

We have been working with Eddie on multiple properties for over 5 years now. His work has ranged from very simple to major remodeling and home repairs (plumbing, electrical, kitchen remodel, tile floors/counter tops, painting, roof repair and more). We really value his honesty, responsiveness and reliability. The guy is personable and he offers good ideas. And his work is very high quality, for very fair rates. A good contractor is a great resource - I would definitely recommend him.

I hired Eldon and HSD Services based on prior reviews, punctuality in setting up estimate and start date, and value for project of painting select rooms/areas inside a home getting ready for rental. We met at the property on Monday, he was hired on Wednesday and ready to begin on Thursday. Due to technical and personal hindrances on my part, they didn't begin until Friday at my request but was understanding and flexible as I added an additional task of painting and hanging closet doors forgot about in the garage. The job was complete within 2 days which was extremely helpful. I highly recommend them and would use them again in the future.

It is difficult to decide where to start on this review. Most of my contact was through Monica and through this entire process she never came to me with problems, only solutions. We did a complete remodel of a home I've owned for years and used as a rental. Budget was a huge issue based on the location and taking ROI into account. We gutted the interior, full kitchen, two bath and 3 bedroom rehab. Some walls were taken out, others were added including the replacement of a circa 1980's single door entry to a beautiful double door. All of this while staying on the budget Monica worked so hard to meet. I interviewed more than half a dozen contractors before deciding on El Sol, some of them quoted my entire budget just for the kitchen. Monica made it all happen and the only budget overruns were changes I made during the build. Her son did the kitchen back splash and his attention to detail, precision cuts and grout lines rival that of a 30 year craftsman. The timeline for the project completion was slightly delayed. Some were material issues, waiting on cabinets and other items while others were manpower with her crew spread out on other jobs. This was only a minor inconvenience when balanced out with the quality and professionalism we experienced. I'm about to start an out of state build on my retirement home and I can only hope it goes as smooth and stays on budget as well as this rehab did.

We contracted Jeff and Rick after getting bids from 5 other companies. We mainly dealt with Jeff for the majority of the job. He is very professional and detail-oriented, which we appreciated. He sent us an estimate and we hired him soon after- but then he told us he made a mistake and needed to charge 15% more for labor costs. We negotiated what we thought was more reasonable and he agreed. After a few more weeks of delay, he told us that Rick underestimated another portion of the job and would have to charge more as well. By this point (5 weeks after officially telling them they were hired), we were anxious to get started so we again agreed to the change. They started a week later and were done in three weeks. The good news is that we're very happy with their craftsmanship- everything looks exactly like we wanted it to. We were just disappointed with all the changes and delays. We will consider them for future jobs as their price for this project was very reasonable compared to other contractors.

We knew that we needed to add on to our home because my daughter and 2 grand babies were moving in, but that was all we knew. We met with 3 contractors. The only one that actually had ideas to help was Phils Contruction. We were thinking of adding 1 room and Phil showed us where we could make it into 2 rooms and a bath. His ideas were perfect... and it was the same cost as the 1 room addition would have been! His workman were professional and ALWAYS ON TIME! Phil was personally on the job everyday. He answered all questions every time we called....and actaully answered the phone..EVERYTIME! Our project passed inspection the first time and was completed within the time frame of the contract. We will never have another contractor, not as long as Phil is around. If you don't have Phil do it, don't complain when its not done right.

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.
