I hired Jasper to build a custom storage bench for me, and a modern barn door. Jasper responded to my post and came by to see the space prior to giving me a quote. He took my ideas and made some suggestions, and drew me a plan of what the pieces would look like. He was also able to find wood that matched my existing wooden floors and mango wood furniture very well. The bench he built fits perfectly in my space and looks seamless. The barn door is very modern (just what I wanted) and looks fantastic in my room. He also kindly offered to come by in a month to ensure that there was no issues and adjust anything to my liking once I have had time to use the pieces. Overall turnaround from the time he responded to my Thumbtack post to delivery of items was less than 2 weeks.

Clifton and his team did a wonderful job with painting our place for our remodel. They also did other items such as installing a barn door, installing handrails, hanging a bath mirror, etc. Clifton is very nice, responsive, patient, and trustworthy. They worked on our place for several weeks to a month. What I like most about them is that they are very accommodating and if you have any issues or concerns, they will happily respond to your requests.

Eddie and his crew did a great job for us. He installed the new siding on our refurbished garage. They did a great job with a lot of attention to detail. More importantly, Eddie is a union trained carpenter with a great work ethic. He was there on time and finished the job at the agreed price in less time than he thought it would take. We will definitely be looking to hire him again for some other work.

While I didn't end up hiring Skyblue Builders for this project because it's on hold, I did want to review my experience with them. They were very responsive and accommodating in setting up a time to view the job to estimate it. They showed up exactly on time and were very professional. Kamaljit turned around a very competitive estimate within a few hours. I'll consider them for future jobs.

Devin has undertaken a number of projects for me over the past few years, ranging from quite small (realigning cabinet doors) to significant (bathroom remodel, new backyard fence, custom barn door). In each and every case, he has been reliable, courteous, pleasant to deal with, and conscientious about both the quality of his work and minimizing disruption to our household during construction. His work is top notch and he asks questions along the way to make sure that the finished product meets our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Devin.

Having just moved into a house on the start of summer, my wife and I found it was unbearably hot on hot days, but really just in one room with a vaulted ceiling: the parts of the house covered by the regular, narrow attic were much cooler. I'd been looking into all house fans, but was concerned that they would not solve the problem in my house because they must be placed in the parts of the house without the heat problem and try to draw hot air down and around corners to reach its intake. I found a device made by a Massachusetts company, Tamarack Technologies, which would directly vent to the outside of the house and close shut at R10 insulation level when not in use. This seemed like the way to go. After failed attempts to get one-trick-pony whole house fan companies to step outside their boxes, I just ordered the unit so that now I could just go on Thumbtack and say "install this unit". Separately I got a quote from the company who last serviced the roof on the building, but the estimator basically told me they weren't interested in the project. Kasra at Sustainable Roofing Solutions was a breath of fresh air. Trained as an architect and an expert in passively efficient building designs, he listened and said I was spot on with my concerns about the air flow. He gave me good ideas about more common solutions to this problem - in particular suggesting a powered skylight. I very nearly returned the unit and went with his suggestion - until we discovered that the specific roof design of the house made a skylight less suitable. But once we had determined that was a dead end, I got enthusiastic, professional and capable work. All in all, the project came in on time and budget. I'm very satisfied with the outcome, and it has definitely made my home livable on hot days and the evenings after.

I hired a handyman at start for my bathroom. things didn't go well with what needed to be done. I hired Dave and his team to take over my project that wasn't going well. Dave came in redesigned my bathroom plans, these guys were very professional, responsive, and the work quality was perfect. This was completed in a timely manner and for a great price! My wife now has her new remodeled bathroom the way she wanted it. I would highly recommend Dave and his team to my friends and family as well as any other projects ill be having done in the future. Thanks Dave!

Michael is very responsive! This was my first time using Thumbtack so I didn't know what to expect and was very pleased how fast the entire process was. We discussed the project and he came over a few days later for the estimate. Scheduling was easy and it did not take a long time to get on their calendar, which was a huge benefit for us. We are very happy that we can start enjoying our backyard a little more now that our pergola is restored and we know it is safe and in good shape! Having a history of family members in various trades, including construction, I know Michael is running his business professionally. Contract, invoices, deposit amount, and payment are all what you would expect from a licensed company. If Crisman Builders reaches out on your project, make sure you connect and talk to Michael. He will be the first person I call for our next project.

I love my new kitchen that Emmery Construction and Renovation did! The job went smoothly, without any problems. It was finished under budget, under the time projected and they even had time to put in a new bathroom vanity, mirror and new light fixture in my guest toilet! I loved how John completes your job, before moving his crew onto someone else's. I had a bad experience with my last kitchen remodel with another contractor. On that previous remodel, the contractor was trying to juggle several jobs at once, and would constantly make excuses as to why he wasn't working on my job–very frustrating and it took weeks longer than he quoted me. This time, my experience was a dream come true! John even had a designer on his team, that took all of my ideas and turned them into a cohesive and beautifully finished project–better than I had ever dreamed it could be! It was a pleasure working with his whole team! I'll be calling Emmery Construction & Renovation again, as soon as I'm ready to redo my master bath! It was a GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

My home suffered significant water damage recently due to a faucet plumbing leak while i was away. My upper level flooring soaked up in water, tore thru the ceiling and water got to the downstairs kitchen area, damaged all the laminate, the side walls, kitchen cabinets etc etc. It was horrible. I had lost 60% of my home due to water damage. I had to replace the kitchen cabinets, vanity cabinets, ceiling, the side walls, laminate/tile flooring, had to have my furniture reassembled & put back in their original location. This was essentially a reconstruction/repair and a kitchen/bath remodeling project After researching several contractors for two weeks, i zeroed in on US Creative Builders. I chose them for the following reasons: 1) Matt sounded like a person i could trust. Majority of the contractors were trying to take advantage of my situation preying on my limited knowledge of construction and how insurance worked. Matt was honest about his bid and pretty ok whether he won the bid or not. 2) He was very punctual and professional about his meeting times. He kept his word & showed up each time i had an appointment with him. 3) He had to redo the bid a few times as we discussed the extent of the repairs. He was patient with the whole process 4) He offered full service. He guided me through the materials, took care of moving my existing furniture away for construction and then moving them back post construction 5) His prices & the timing of work completion were very reasonable. I then signed up to work with Matt. His crew worked nearly 6 days a week, 10 hours a day. They were there in the morning at 7:30am and worked till 6pm and they got the job done in 4 weeks, much faster than what the other contractors had promised. There were plenty of things i liked about their work: 1. First & foremost the overall quality of construction 2. They kept their promise, completed the work on time 3. Matt's calm & cool composure. He always valued my satisfaction over money or time. 4. Their flexibility -- to go visit local stores to pick up the materials as we tried/retried various options, accommodate any minor changes/deviation from original plan without any fuss 4. Matt's reasonable pricing of upgrades/changes which were not originally planned I am thrilled i chose Matt's services and i would enthusiastically recommend his services for home repair/reconstruction

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
