I hired Jose on a Friday afternoon to demolish my courtyard after we had flooding after a big rainstorm and faulty exterior drainage at our 30-year-old large custom home. He had a crew of five men here the following Saturday morning working by 8 AM. They did everything he promised quickly and efficiently on time and on budget. I highly recommend him.

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!

My experience with Jordan Box, he is quick to respond, honest, gives realistic estimates based on work to be preformed, knowledgable, professional, and resourcesful. Based on our initial conversation about my project I decided to hire Jordan because it is apparent that he takes great pride in his work and will treat your project as if he was building it at his own home. I am happy I hired Jordan to do my bathroom remodel and looking forward to the next project with him as soon as this project is complete.

Alan has done a lot of great work for me and I highly recommend him! I recently moved into a new home and needed a variety of repairs and upgrades done. Alan ran electrical conduit and installed ceiling fans for me, installed linoleum flooring in the bathroom, ran data cabling into very difficult areas, stripped wallpaper, retextured walls, painted, and much more. I had some closet doors that were in poor shape and he was able to make them functional so that I didn’t have to buy new ones. I also had an old sliding glass door that had been installed incorrectly and also had a broken locking mechanism. As old as the door was, I could not find a compatible door-handle and locking mechanism so I thought I was going to have to buy a whole new door and door-frame, but Alan was able to repair it and made a custom locking mechanism. In addition, Alan has given me lots of good advice to help me save money on home repairs, and he has even given me tips on how to complete my own little home repair projects. He’s very professional, honest, friendly, and easy to work with. I really appreciate that he is willing to take on both large jobs and small tasks and I will definitely call him for future projects and repairs. Thanks Alan!

Fady has thus far been terrific to work with on the plans for my home addition. There has been quite a bit of back and forth with plan change request on my part. Fady has been very accommodating with the changes. His pricing is fair, and I believe the end result will be worth the investment.

We just completed a project with Mana Design Build and we couldn't be happier with the result. The kitchen looks amazing! We recently bought a house and it needed major updates. Initially, we were going to work with our general contractor to remodel the entire house, but after reading reviews about Mana Design and their custom cabinetry, my husband and I were excited to tour their showroom. After the visit to their showroom and meeting Mazi and his team, we were sold. We don't have a big kitchen space, but Mazi was able to design a layout that works perfectly for our kitchen. They are very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. With a complete home remodel, we had to schedule and time every task correctly to make sure the project completes on time. We had so many requests, but they were willing to work with our aggressive schedule. The whole team was incredibly easy to work with and they are very responsive. Due to city approvals and permits, our project got delayed by 3 weeks. Mana Design finished our cabinets on time and they were willing to hold our cabinets in their warehouse until the house was ready. During the installation stage, the team did a superior job. They paid great attention to detail and cleaned up the work site nicely after the project was completed. We absolutely love our new custom kitchen and eating area. The quality of the custom cabinetry is very high-end and top-notch. Thank you Mana Design team for giving us the kitchen of our dreams! We had such a positive and great experience working with Mazi and his team. We highly recommend Mana Design Build! Anna & Bob

We had just bought a new house and wanted to renovate a bedroom and bathroom that had not been permitted by the previous owner. We hired Ronald Butler and his crew because out of all the contractors we interviewed, he seemed the most knowledgeable and apt to delivering the services we were looking for. From the outset of the renovation, it was clear that our new home was going to need much more work than we anticipated. The discoveries we made when opening up walls, prompted us to change our scope of work. We were now facing new electrical, plumbing, foundation, roofing, and flooring among other things. My wife and I were nervous about the changes because of the financial ramifications, and with two small children, the impact it will have on our living conditions for the next several months. Fortunately for us, we found the right contractor. Ronald's no nonsense advice, professional guidance and expert workmanship has made this process a lot more manageable than we thought. The project included in addition to the aforementioned scope: new floor plan, new HVAC, new tankless water heater, high efficiency appliances for a new kitchen, solar tubes, new electrical sub-panels, two new bathrooms, with new tub, all new fixtures, toilets and sinks, new laundry room, energy efficient recessed lighting throughout the house, new copper piping, gas piping, new electrical conductors, recepticles and switches, new windows, interior and exterior doors, new drywall and paint, new insulation, and a new 400 square foot deck. There were many challenges throughout this project, and Ronald and his crew met and overcame each one in a timely fashion, with courtesy and professional tact. My wife and I feel very fortunate to have found Ronald. He has not only delivered us a completely renovated home, that meets all of our contemporary criteria with all the new energy efficient home options, but he has also given us peace of mind and security for us and our children in an ideal home for many years to come. ....photos coming soon.

Ray Hawkins, was effective and efficient in the design of my remodel in 2005 and since that time in all aspects of design, restructure on my home. His Design and development company single-handly saved me on numerous occasion. He is professional and knowledgable on all aspects in managing designs. In referring others, I only work with Ray and all have found him to be trustworth and effective. There is not a month that goes by that someone is not stopping by home and inquiring for who did the design on my remodel. In this day and age of design and structuring it is key that you have a professional, experience, licensed and bonded designer who can do it all. This is especially key for women and the aging. Ray Hawkins and group has never failed.

Henry is a super handyman who did more than I initially booked him for - trim and base moldings in my house - he fixes the fireplace and put up a very heavy glass mirror which had never been hung as we were unsure how. He is always on time, polite, cleans up well and clever at fixing problems - my floors and walls aren't perfectly straight so the trim hand to be cut to fit space - I would highly recommend Henry for his skill and problem solving and I will be booking him again.

Ramos & Son Contruction Co has done alot of projects for me over the years. I live in a Tri Level home in Covina Ca and Juan Ramos has Remodeled my 2 bathrooms, Kitchen area, Outside waterfall pond, electrical work, reinsulated the upstairs walls in all bedrooms, plumbing work, recessed lighting, repositioned a major support post in my Garage area for more room in the laundry room, installed Crown molding around the interior of my home, and painting. I have a touching story of Juan Ramos, In the summer of 2016 as Juan Ramos was reconstructing my exterior waterfall pond area, my 4 year granddaughter was placed in foster care, so I had applied for my granddaughter to get placed with me, there was alot of things that I had to do to get my home ready for inspection by the dept of Children Services for the home to be approved for my granddaughter to be placed with me. Inspection day came and everything was looking good until the social worker inspected the fireplace, the social worker indicated that she could past the. Inspection because the fireplace did not pass because the fireplace had a steel mesh protector in the front and that it needed a more stable protector, my heart just dropped because my granddaughter was still in foster care with people she did not know. So, immediately I thought of Juan Ramos that was outside rebuilding my pond as the social worker was there doing the inspection. I immediately went outside to ask Juan Ramos if he could temporarily construct a temporary barrier in front of fireplace so the inspection could pass. The social worker said that would be good and ask me to send a picture of the temporary barrier once its installed since she had to leave for her another assignment. Juan Ramos immediately went to Home depot to get the materials needed to construct barrier as I had to report back to work, Juan Ramos completed the temporary barrier within a couple of hours and then he sent me the picture of barrier so I could send to the Social worker, the Social worker was impressed and approved home for my granddaughters placement with me. My granddaughter now has a safe home, and I have adopted her and she now goes to a Christian school in Covina Ca. I give alot of thanks to Juan Ramos for going out of his way and doing this for my granddaughter . Overall Juan Ramos does excellent and remarkable work, his work is very neat, clean, and very detailed at a great price, there was never no delay in all the projects that he has done at my home. Most importantly he's a man of honor, with a heart of gold. I have so much respect for Juan Ramos because of his honesty and caring nature. Best contractor I have ever met in my life.

Great overall experience. Job turned out to be a little more complicated and took longer to fix than expected, waiting for parts. Would definitely recommend working with Morris - great customer service, knowledgeable, friendly, replies to texts at anytime, fair prices, on time and even gave my toddler a present! Very comfortable having Morris work in our home and having him quote additional jobs around the house currently.

Full rip-out-and-replace kitchen remodel with custom cabinetry, counters, electrical, plumbing, appliances, external door/window replacements and opening up walls to adjoining rooms. Ephraim bid competitively compared to two other companies we contacted and when selected, he led a top-quality crew to complete a complex job in our home. Ephraim was adept at listening to our wants and needs and was able to take our design ideas and offer suggestions about how to execute with available materials including how much different options would cost. Good communication was always provided on paper with regard to cost changes and design plans. Our new kitchen is beautiful and gets constant compliments on the quality and design. We will definitely be calling Galvin Designer Builders for the next project!

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.
