We were very pleased with this service. He was responsive, punctual and courteous. He was able to handle a wide range of tasks around our house..The best part was that there within 24 hours. Will definitely be using them again. The long- We needed to have a number of items taken care of after the purchase of our new condo, and after several days of research I decided to reach out to A Good Handyman and one other handyman service for quotes. I heard back from Candace at A Good Handyman in less than 24 hours, and I never ended up getting a reply from the other service so I went with AGH.

He put in a decomposed granite patio area and a succulent garden. It involved moving irrigation to the side of the house. He also put in a drain for water that comes off the roof. Excellent job. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was installing a new cooktop and I needed my granite cut about an inch on each side of the counter inset. I called MFP construction and they came out to my house the next morning, set up a dust-prof tent and went to work. Robin was knowledgable, fast, efficient and clean!! A job well done! Thank you!!

Jose was on time and ready to work. He went beyond the call of duty for my family and I. He fixed fence posts, put a new peephole in the front door, fixed a broken door jam, amended the screen doors and did the work quickly. He was very nice and professional and smiled while he worked. You can tell he likes what he does. I highly recommend him and will use him for future jobs at my new home.

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.

New Mellennium Construction (NMC) provided excellant service and a truck load of advice during the almost month in which Mr. Torres was performing various jobs during our house overall. The roofing, first class. Not only do they do roofs but just about any other construction related job. Installed french doors, modified my fireplace, removed and install dry wall and assited with some electrical work. I would recommend NMC to anyone who wants good work done at a fair price and he is a California State License contractor which alone speaks volumes.

Scott installed a ceiling fan so he can def do electrical and installed some custom forged brackets to put up some really heavy found wood planks for shelves. I was really nervous that the brackets wouldn't hold the weight of these planks but he assured me that they would be fine and put in heavy duty anchors (I think that's what he called them). I was super happy with him and his work. A lot of people don't like to work in Dtla but Scott didn't blink an eye about coming down here. He was early if not on time and he even offered to take his shoes off since we are a non-shoes in the house set up!! He cleaned up after himself too. Will definitely recommend!!!

I hired Thomas to patch up the wall around my baseboards, fireplace, and a spot on our ceiling. He was very communicative and organized. He left my house cleaner than any contractor I've ever hired. First one I didn't clean up behind after he left. I recommend him.

Steve Fry does excellent and conscientious work which is hard to find these days. You would be lucky if he decided to take on your projects. I shouldn't be saying all of this because I don't want him to get too busy to be able to help me. I get so sick of workers who do sloppy and careless work and are overpriced especially if it is a female calling for herself or her husband. I am so happy sitting in my house today knowing my projects are getting taken care of my Steve.

Jordan went above and beyond our expectations. We had the inside of our house painted, new electrical plugs and outlets, new baseboards, and wood tile installed. We had many problems arise in our house with our concrete slab. He went out of his way for us to get it leveled and fixed right. Therefore, my tile floor turned out leveled, perfect, and not bumpy. He is a man of his word which is hard to find these days. I will hire him again. Thank you to Jordan and all his employees. We love our new home!

They installed solar on my roof and they installed a QuietCool whole house fan which I can control from my smart phone! They added a attic fan and insulation. I selected this company because they do more than just solar, they made my home energy efficient.

When we bought our new house I remembered we asked Frank to come over and give me a quote. The quote was great and Frank was able to get to work quickly replacing the old floors in the Living room and entryway. Frank was fast professional and most importantly the new floors look amazing! We get complements all of the time from our friends and family who come over. I would definitely use them again.

After having a water leak, we decided to have the kitchen and family room renovated. This involved the replacement of floors, counters, sink and cooktop as well as refinishing extensive cabinetry. We were not remotely impressed by the first 4 or 5 contractors we called. We then had Morena Tile and Home Design come to provide an estimate. The difference was amazing. Sami and his team immediately demonstrated working knowledge of what needed to be done and how it could be accomplished in each area. After their analysis we did not look further because we felt we had finally found the contractor for the project. The quote was in the ballpark of what we thought it would cost so we did not even consider looking for a lower bid. The whole project started and ended in a timely fashion. The various workers were obviously experienced in their respective fields and performed beautifully. Even so, there was daily review and supervision of the project by a manager. I had heard nightmare stories about contractors from many sources but with Morena, we never had an unpleasant moment. There were no surprises or additional costs except for changes we requested. The attitude of all involved was so positive and friendly that we actually missed them when it was over. The finished product was impressive and as close as it can come to perfect. We are looking forward to having this company remodel other areas of our home very soon and highly recommend them. Tina T San Clemente, CA

We are very pleased with our home remodel done by JC Builders & Design! Joe and his team completed all new flooring, paint, light fixtures, baseboards, and installation of 5 ceiling fans. All finished work is of highest quality. JC Builders & Design responded quickly to all inquiries, and were very thorough. Work progressed steadily from day 1, and the whole project was completed on time. We even added a couple of items, and those were also completed on time. We love our "new" house and recommend JC Builder & Design to all of of our neighbors and friends.

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.  

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.

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.
