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!

This was the first time I ever used Thumbtack and if everyone is as great as Mike / C.M.N Construction, I'll be using this site a heck of a lot more. Right away Mike's bid stood out from the rest, I appreciated that he took the time and wrote exactly what he would be providing, time it would take and itemized the price. After selecting his bid, Mike immediately opened up communications without me first having to pester him. He worked with my crazy schedule and would always emailed me back immediately when I had a question. On the day of the move, he texted me in the morning to confirm our time, then again 15 minutes before arriving to let me know he would be on time. Mike and his partner were organized, fast and really cool when I asked if I could move even more than I originally anticipated. He even asked if I wanted more things moved without trying to upsell me on his bid price. At the final destination, Mike once again careful yet fast getting everything unloaded and neatly set-up in the new location. After finishing, he genuinely seemed surprised when I asked how much more I should add to the original price for all the extra work he performed. I really hate moving... but Mike and his partner made this experience so much easier. They were extremely professional, courteous and pleasant to be around. I would have no problem highly recommending them and plan on using his services again in the future. Mike, if you read this - thanks again for the great job and being such a great sport!

The project was to move a door in our master bedroom and change it to a pocket door. It required him to build new supports, install new drywall, paint, etc. Oscar did a great job and was very responsive to all of our questions. He even went to Home Depot to pick up all of the necessary materials. Will be looking to hire Oscar the next time we have a project at our house. Thanks Oscar!

My dad's circuit panel needs to be replaced, Milton came out an gave him an estimate, it was a little high but he was willing to work on lowering the price (which we greatly appreciate). Collected a deposit to pay for materials and is installing it 3 days after we hired him. I will update once the final job is done but I have no doubt it will be a great turnout. Very experienced, professional and friendly.

I hired Excel Construction LA to a full interior remodel of a 1928 home that I purchased as a rental property, but quickly determined I had underestimated the amount of work and investment required to get it rental ready. As a casual landlord, I did not have much experience with remodeling, managing contractors, estimating costs, etc. But I loved the house and had a vision for what I wanted to create. I chose Excel Construction LA because I felt they understood my vision and would be flexible along the way. I was right and they proved to be a fantastic partner. Excel was always able to provide quality materials at a reasonable price, they were extremely flexible and accommodating working with my schedule and they produced quality work. The managed the entire permit process and went above and beyond to ensure all inspections were passed - not just the city's inspections, but also the buyer's inspectors. In the end, we turned a very run down home in South LA into a beautiful new home that sold for the top price point in the zip code - something local realtors said could not be done. Excel deserves a ton of credit for this. Nofar, Evan and the entire Excel team were super helpful and fun to work with, as was the sub, Jorge. Thanks Excel!

From the first time Jay came out to give an estimate, I knew he was someone I wanted to work with. Throughout the process, he stayed in constant communication and was always professional. His work in installing 5 doors around my house and garage was excellent. He's a problem solver with a great attitude. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Haggerty Construction!

I had a GREAT experience with Daniel from World Class Construction! I did not know him before, but he is now my "go to " guy. I had a smaller but very difficult job with some drainage issues and he came up with good suggestions on a repair and his cost and service were great. Also had some additional drywall work done and he was also very fair and competitive. Daniel was also very professional in every aspect, from the contract to finshing the work.

He and his coworker worked quickly and cleaned the project up after completion. I definitely can recommend FH Construction and will use them again on future projects. Lynne B

I had a big project and was overwhelmed with all the different contractors i was having to hire when here comes JDA construction to the rescue. One General contractor handled all the trades at fair prices and very high quality workmanship. These boys don't play around. Completed project way ahead of schedule, highly recommended to all. Even if you have a smaller project. They do it all !! Very knowledgeable and professional and don't cut any corners. Build it once and build it right with these boys!!!!!!! I'm saving their number and using them for anything and everything i do in the future.

We did a lot of research to find the right contractor to build us a free-standing recreation room. We actually hired a different contractor first, simply based on having the lowest price. What a terrible decision. We quickly came to regret it, and fired that contractor as soon as we could — a costly misjudgment. Even though Owl Construction’s cost was a bit more, though very reasonable, we knew he was the right contractor for us. Guy Hazan of Owl Construction is fantastic. He was so easy to work with. He’s a compassionate listener, and kept us informed and at ease through the entire process. I don’t know much about construction, and had never undergone a project of this size, but Guy was there every step of the way. He explained everything very clearly and addressed any questions or concerns we had from day one to the completion of the project. I also must mention the Amazing Anesta. Anesta is a gem to this company. She kept the communication light and easy, and got the job done. She is responsive, dependable, organized and kind. The final building is stunning. The contractors did such a great job all around. To think what a nightmare it would have been to have continued with that original contractor who bullied and didn’t listen. Owl Construction was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone.

It’s always stressful having construction going on in the house, but I was assigned a project manager Joe, he worked around our schedule being that we had to hop around bedrooms as they were working on the master, Joe coordinated the schedule around ours, he really made it a pleasant experience, and the floors look great, beyond our expectations!! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, it’s always good to feel like you got more then what you paid for, we will be in touch for our next renovation.

I have used Curtis construction services on several renovations in the past for few of my properties and I clearly state that I will continue to hire them in the future for any remodeling project I may have. As a person that have good knowledge in design I can say that I will always count on the fact that Daniel and his team have a good experience and skills when it comes to design and implementation! They carry a huge amount of expertise and technical detail to their projects which escalating the quality of their work and add a great touch that will make each project a stunning one. My recent remodeling projects were a kitchen, bathrooms, living rooms and few other things at my properties that were in a need to be rented. The people that do the actual work are very strong team with high skills and experience while Daniel managing the work and making sure that everything is above his requirements and guidelines. Overall – excellent company to hire for any job.

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.

Excellent service!I highly recommend Ranbay Construction for home or commercial renovations. The minute I met Brad I knew he was the best! My house and office needed a complete renovation and Brad walked me through the process, helped me pick out materials and finished the job on time! He laid out several options in a clear, no-pressure manner, and was extremely communicative throughout the process. His team showed up on time on every appointment, and they completed the work in the agreed upon time period. The clean up was excellent. They are very hard-working, helpful with questions and concerns, and trustworthy. I did a lot of research and interviews with multiple contractors before picking them. Brad was always available to answer my questions and I can't say enough about his company! I'm very satisfied with the overall experience I had with this company and would use them again without hesitation.

I highly recommend them.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.  

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.

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.

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.
