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.

I highly recommend Steve Fry for your construction needs! We had a barn door custom made just sitting at our home and in need of installation. Steve responded timely to my Thumbtack request and we made arrangements to meet within a few days. He showed up on time and was prepared to do the work. The door kit was a bit raw, but he knew exactly what to do. He was friendly, and is truly and expert in door hanging. The final product took only a few hours and it looks beautiful. Couldn't be happier. Please call Steve for your construction projects - you won't be disappointed!

Ross did a number of jobs for us and was truly a pleasure to work with. Very professional, honest and fair. Showed up every day at the same time so I never had to wait around or wonder if he was coming. His work was excellent quality and we really hope to work with him again on future projects. Just a few of the projects he did for us was paint the whole exterior of our home, replaced rotted beams, built a new gate, and installed baseboards.

We used Axis Home Improvement to a decent remodel to our new house. After several bids, Maria and her team's bid was the closest to what we were looking for. We had an impossible timeline with a 5 month old. It had be done quickly. Maria promised to work hard and get the project turned around fast, which she did! We are happy with the work that was done. Maria is easy to work with and tries her best to work with you, which is usually not the case with most contractors. We are hoping to do a couple of other projects soon. We will definitely be reaching out to Maria and Eddie to handle it for us.

This is in recommendation of the architectural design of my private residence undertaken by Arch Austin Etiaka late last year, October 2015. Austin is a fine responsible gentleman, intelligent, thorough and professional with his job. I had sat down with him and gave him a rough sketch of the building I wanted constructed and I was extremely impressed with his finished product. A real classic.This building which is my personal retirement home is currently under construction and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this architect to anyone who may require his services.We have been great friends ever since my initial contact with him.And I intend to work with him again and again in my future projects.

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 love working with NXT Design. Not only does their team always bring talented designers to the table, but NXT Design can help to solidify an overall brand experience. This was crucial to us as our shared office spaces rely on a strong brand experience in each location. We always hire NXT Design to create the look and feel of all of our offices. They've created a standard for our brand as we continue to expand. NXT Design is also flexible and very easy to work with. They understand branding and design, as well as the construction and development side of it. NXT Design created several craft furniture pieces for us that added a quality custom look we needed. They are also able to assist with quality control of build out of our spaces. We're so grateful for all of their help.

We've had the most amazing experience with Skyline Construction. Eric (the owner) exceeded every single one of our expectations from start to finish. It is so hard to find reliable, trustworthy, caring and genuine people in this business and Eric has been all that and more. He basically held our hand through the entire process of our home remodel (gutted house completely) which included framing walls, 5 bathroom remodels, kitchen remodel, new floors, plumbing, new air/heating/vents, painting interior and exterior and much much more. We have never experienced such amazing customer service and professionalism which in today's world almost doesn't exist. Eric's knowledge of home improvement is second to none. We love our new home and have Eric to thank!!!!!!!

I submitted my project on Thumbtack and literally within only 1 or 2 minutes, I got a call from Rex Contractors. They asked me a few questions and sent their project manager out to check out my property and gave me an estimate. Their estimate was in the middle, but that's ok, because we weren't looking for cheap contractors. We've had bad experiences with cheap contractors in the past before. We hired them and they did a complete kitchen remodel for us. Which included flooring, paiting, appliances, new cabinets and installed recessed lighting. They also did 2 bathrooms for us, which included tile flooring, vanity, tub replaement, and painting. This was for both bathrooms. They also did hardwood flooring through out the whole house and interior painting.. The whole project took about 2 months and we are very happy with the workmanship and customer service with the Rex team!

I contracted work from CJS over several years for my house. They initially helped us with creating a footing, repairing the foundation and lifting the house since there house had settled down cracking the foundation. This was our first house and we did not anything about construction, so, even thought we knew that the house had settlement issues, it was really disheartening to learn about the extent of the work. Fortunately CJS was there to help and guide us through the process of repairing and straightening the house. Their work was high quality and they even helped us with other repairs (flooring, painting, etc.) all with very reasonable pricing (and even helping us with a payment plan). About a year after the first repairs, we had to resort to CJS for help because the bath tub in the upper floor had ruptured and a lot of water came gushing down to the bottom floor. Again, CJS did a high quality work at very reasonable pricing. Helping again with other needed repairs like a new electrical panel and water drain with a sumpump. The last job that CJS performed was the relocation of a jacuzzi next to a swimming pool, fixing a barbeque and repairing the pavement in the patio. Again, great quality work and reasonable pricing. If you need experienced, trustworthy contractors that charge you reasonable prices, CJS is your contractor.

I'm so pleased to be posting this review today and have nothing but praise for the smooth running, high standard of work and early completion of my second building project with EnerG Contractor. Stan was professional throughout and also managed his team to work around me while still living in the property! So EnerG Contractor have now successfully completed my second build A complex three story extension building project only one year after completing my loft conversion to such a high standard that I went back as a repeat customer. Furthermore the work was completed along with building regs passed in only eight weeks which was four weeks ahead of the proposed twelve week schedule! Stan remained professional and reliable throughout whilst also clearly and concisely communicating with both myself and the whole team. Well done to all and thank you for all the hard work.

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.
