Mr. Ellis continually remained in communication before and during the construction. There is still one part left, waiting for a door to arrive and he checks in with me periodically. He worked quickly, efficiently, and left the area clean and free of debris.

I would give Belru a 4 1/2 stars. There were several marks left on the walls from handprints and some of the paint touch-ups after the install were not completely covered. All in all Belru Construction did a very fine job and I would hire them again. Their price is competitive too!! They are nice and work very hard.

We went from framed to frameless shower enclosure and when the old glass was removed, we quickly realized we needed to make tile repair prior to installing the new glass. We decided to have a different company make the repair. Owner, Michael Compton of Compton Construction quickly responded to my Thumbtack post, set up an estimate appointment and provided me with an estimate the same day. A repair appointment was set up immediately and all was repaired, cleaned up and perfect in just one visit. This was a smooth and fast repair. Michael is great to do business with. He's easy going and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend Michael Compton Construction and will certainly use them again. Five gold stars!!! So happy to find Compton on Thumbtack. (I'd like to add that I received several/max quotes and decided on Compton Construction). -Happy home owner

Jeff Scott and his crew of well mannered and respectful workers transformed my front and side yards into what can only be described as "the envy of the neighborhood". Our California Drought Landscape transformation job started on time and ended on time - as promised. The project took the better part of 5 days from beginning to end. Each day beginning with Jeff arriving on site well before 7:30 AM with his workers arriving shortly after. Although I had a general idea of what kind of work I wanted performed I relied on many of Jeff's suggestions and recommendations for a major portion of the project. Thankfully he could see the end results in his mind before the work even started and I found his recommendations and tweaks to my design thoughts to be carefully thought out and presented in a very professional business manner. I plan on having some construction work performed in the near future. My first call will be to JS Construction and Landscape.

Fernando was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. He built us extra shelves in our shed and assembled a ramp kit I bought online for it. I am very happy with the work he performed! I would caution to be careful when asking for a quote vs his hourly rate since his quote is a flat rate regardless if he finishes it in less time. The difference was not disclosed to me so I was under the impression the quote followed the same hourly rate he was charging. So in short, if you know how many hours your project will take, simply hire him for the hourly rate instead of the quoted flat rate for a project as it may be a better value. Overall, I would hire him again as it was a good experience and his punctuality was top notch!

I meet with Brian today. My need is to convert a tub/shower to a shower only for my son who will be returning from a deployment. My project changed after contacting Insight and I sent a message to say I had additional needs. Quick response which is always helpful. Brian did show and showed on time. He gave me many options to keep the project price under control. I can purchase all materials or he can purchase for me. I like the options. He gave me an overview and took time to answer my questions. I am waiting his estimate currently. So many Contractors do not show or its not worth their time yet they do not let the customer know that is the situation. I feel Brian will respond with an estimate as promised. I am really most impressed with Brian and hope I have found a contractor that I can use long term future projects :).

Colony Construction recently completed a bedroom remodel in my house. The previous owners of our home knocked down a wall between two bedrooms and Nick and his team made the large unusual room back into the two bedrooms it was and were even able to use the same carpet and it looks great!. They did a fantastic job and were very sensitive to the fact that my daughters have special needs and cleaned up their work space every night to keep my kids safe. They completed the job in a timely manner and were right on with the estimate once the work was completed. If I have any future remodeling needs, I will hire them again. Highly recommend.

After months of searching for the right contractor to do our remodel of our master bath,we found pacific and the process and the way they handle and do remodels is genius, we just finshed with them about a week ago , and I am beyond happy with the finshed product. Moran and his team kept me informed and involed in the process the whole time , not everything little thing he came to me with , only decision they he knew i would want to make , I selected who i wanted to do the work, i knew everything up front , i wasnt hit with a bill after. Or change orders. and after a bad kitchen refacing( with another company ) that took months and tons of problems , I was kinda scared to countitue , but Pacific gave me my joy back , I will forever be thankful for the time and energy moran put into the project.

Verified review

I bought an older rental home that had strange wiring issues due to the way it was constructed and work done to it by a prior owner. I needed a company that could solve non-obvious, complex wiring issues. Aaron and Matt from Pi Electric and Solar were the perfect choice. They worked hard and fast. Crawling through cramped attic spaces, opening junction boxes, and meticulous trouble shooting were no problem at all. They were also affordable. I definitely received my money's worth. The job was done professionally, thoroughly, and flawlessly over the course of two days. What I really appreciated was the extra time and effort they took to explain to me (a layman) what was going on and what was causing the issues. Both Aaron and Matt from Pi Electric and Solar exceeded my expectations and I am a very satisfied customer. I highly recommend.

Christopher actually arrived a little earlier than scheduled...A nice surprise. He assessed the problem and was able to repair it quickly and with obvious expertise. He even insisted on cleaning up the small amount of debris left over from his work. He offered good advice on a future electrical project that I am considering.

Anthony and Megan from floors to ceiling construction not only exceeded my expectations but made the whole process fun and easy. From changing my mind on the projects I wanted done, to helping me figure out what flooring I wanted (Megan was amazing at helping me figure out what my preferences were), to shopping with me for 2 hours for bathroom materials because picking it out alone was too difficult for me. They worked with my budget and were very patient with me and helped give my house the amazing face lift I needed it to have for a fresh start for my daughter and I. I am so thankful for the beautiful work that they did and for making the process such a great experience. I will DEFINITELY be working with them again!

The work that Doug did for me is thoroughly demonstrative of solid know-how and a lot of experience. He and his crew were on point with both their work and their willingness to keep me informed about the status of my remodel, in addition to being efficient and cleanly. I would, without a doubt, recommend hiring River City Construction for any home improvement needs.

We hired Jason because he truly cares about his work. He was a pleasure to work with, maintained good communication, and did an excellent job. He even went the extra mile to put artistic touches on our driveway. The finished result is really lovely, and it completely transformed the look of our home. Even when some aspects of the project hit unexpected snags, Jason was a true pro, and figured out solutions. I recommend Jason for any concrete projects! -Jessica in Sacramento

    I hired Nick to work on several house projects. From the very beginning he provided me with expert advice on the best way to complete the project along with a fair estimate. His work is very professional and he doesn't cut corners. He is hard working and arrives at stated times. The quality of work is top notch and very professional. If he encounters a problem not originally detected he will take the necessary steps informing the customer along with revised estimate. I have several additional projects that I need done and Nick is the person I trust and will call to complete the work. I am very confident that if you hire Nick you will be very satisfied with his work. Rich D.

    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.
