Nima was awesome. Very quick to reply and was able to come over right away. More then fair on his pricing and did a very professional job. Made adjustments until I was happy and was happy to do it. I would definitely use him again for future projects around the house.

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!

We hired Excel Construction to do a complete kitchen remodeling and enlarge the existing space by expanding the walls several feet to the patio area. The new kitchen included the installation of the upper and lower cabinets, new paint, new backsplash, marble counter top, LED lighting and new dishwasher, stove and range. Eyal, the project manager and Revital (the lady that we worked with in regards to all the documents, payments and permits) from the office who did an outstanding job helping us. During the work, we clearly noticed that they were always made sure that the costs will remain the same and won’t pass the budget that was set at first and they made sure the job was done accurately. All the sub-contractors that they employed for our house (carpenters, electricians, painters etc.) were outstanding, qualified and experienced. We were very fascinated that our project Eyal was able to complete the entire kitchen few days earlier than he promised us. We were always given a personal attention by Eyal, who was very good in communication and organized and by Revital. The new kitchen looks perfect and very useful and we strongly recommend them and we will hire them again for any remodeling project we may have.

Oscar was amazing and went above and beyond to get the fridge installed. He had to move an outlet that was not properly placed by my contractor. Made a trip to Home Depot and stayed longer to get it done. I highly recommend him!

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.

Channing was prompt, personable, and knowledgeable. I hired him to replace door hinges, which he did swiftly and carefully, and he even repaired a couple of places where I had damaged the wood. He knows a lot about all kinds of construction, and I would definitely recommend him.

Thank you Cabrera's Electrical. We have had so much work done on our home, yet when our private contractor retired, we did not know what to do. Cabrera's had the most professional response online. We had (2) large ceiling fans to be installed, and needed electrical re-wiring of the (2) wall switches that would be used. His quote was what our retired contractor told us it should be. Our fans and new electrical are perfect. I plan on using him again for other projects that we have. We have already referred him to friends of ours. It's such a relief to find somebody who cares about your home, as much as you do.

Fantastic company. Simon is polite, communicative, and friendly. They did a great job installing a new central air system for me in my condo and gave me the most competitive price I've found. I'm very happy with this company - it's extremely difficult to find honest and reputable contractors nowadays, but HUS is definitely one you should add to your contacts.

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.

Edgar and his crew were pretty amazing and thorough. High quality work with great communication along the way. Our new deck is beautiful. Would definitely hire this contractor again and highly recommend this company. Quality company with an innovative approach. Was sold on the day he came out to do the estimate. By the end of the day I received not only a competitive bid, but a rendering of the proposed construction.

Oscar Morales our draftsman has been very helpful on our home remodel. He is extremely knowledgeable and created architectural plans for us to submit our project to the City as owner/builder. His fees are very fair. He is a team player who works well with others, seeks out good resources, and has helped us to move forward on our project in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Oscar for your project.

Well I just had to write this review. Ryan with Olympia company was the contractor on our remodel and his work was just perfect. I know when you start remodel you figure the schedule to be very flexible and the project to always take weeks for months to finish beyond what the contractor says. But I'm here to tell you Ryen finished on time. Not one day late, and the work was without a doubt top notch. I had, really nothing to complain about. That's why this company deserve 5 stars. Heghly recommended! Thank you.

Could not be happier with this company. They went above and beyond. We had some water damage to our home and needed a contractor ASAP. GIM came out to my property and assessed the situation right away. They provided me with an estimate and got started right away. My roof needed to be repaired and and I decided to also to some interior renovations. I had my kitchen re done with a modern finish and opened up a wall to give it a bigger feel. There architect supplied me with drawings ahead of time to show how it would look. At the end they put solar on the roof and now I am saving money on my energy bill. Thank you for all the hard work!

Working with Kelvin was great, he redid our restroom and our entire kitchen, this includes plumbing. We very much liked working with him especially because it felt like the project wasn't dragged out or prolonged in my opinion. He arrived in a timely matter and his crew cleaned up after themselves very well. It was a pleasure working with him and look forward to future projects together!

Gilbert knows what he is doing, his guys are great and get the work done right the first time. I am building my own home and i wish i hire Gilbert for slab and framing but i had already had it done when i met him. The work was 100% done right pass all inspections with green flags. communication was top notch. Cons: We agreed to have him install drop ladder that i supply he came to final inspection and collect his final pay and i left he said he would get it install. Came back and it was not install. I handle it but the principal was not there. I texted him to find out if he was planing to come back and pick up all the left over wood that they left (trash) never got a response. I am a plumbing contractor and i would never leave a job site the way he did unethical. That is why i left a 4 start but in reality a 3 start would of been well deserve. I have another project now and i do not know if i will use him again.

    I had Daniel remodel my condo for me 6 months ago. He did a great job! Anytime I had a question, he didn't hesitate to answer me. He finished on schedule as promised and stuck to the budget. Plus, the quality of work was on point. I've worked with a bad contractor before but Daniel was nothing like him. I'm glad i hired him and would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone. Great work and fair prices! Also, he would clean up everyday after he finished work and didn't leave my place a mess. Thanks so much Daniel!! :)

    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.

    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.
