I contacted Steve to inspect the roof of my room addition due to leaks. Steve was able to come out the following day for an inspection, and he was able to give me a same day quote which was several hundred dollars below the other quotes I had received. Steve and his crew were able to complete the work the same day and although I was at work he stayed in contact with me via cell phone which included pictures. I absolutely would recommend Steve for roof repairs without hesitation. As a matter of fact, I plan to contract with him to do additional construction projects on my property. If there were six stars I would have given it to him.

Chris helped us out on a huge yard cleanup weeding project at our rental property and we were so pleased we had him do a tree trimming yard cleanup at our house. He also helped us haul out an old bathtub and took other items to dump. He was always on time, helpful, reasonably priced, responsible, excellent service. Definitely will call him again as needed.

Jose was the first to respond to my request for someone to perform concrete installation in the courtyard of our home (which was previously filled with dirt and plants) and he offered to come out the same day to provide an estimate. Not only did he show up on time, but he provided an affordable estimate and said he could start the following day (a huge plus!). My stepdad who's been in the commercial construction industry for 40+ years was there for the meeting as well and was thoroughly impressed with Jose's knowledge when discussing the his strategy for job. The day of the project, Jose and his crew (who were also outstanding) showed up on time and did an AMAZING job. I couldn't be happier with the final results. The crew was professional and cleaned and hauled everything away when they were done. If you're looking for construction services, I would highly recommend Jose's services!

Houman, you are amazing. People love our new restaurant. Look at our yelp reviews for the proof 😊. They can't stop praising about our restaurant interiors on all the social networking sites. Houman went above and beyond in helping us open our modern fast casual restaurant. Our budget did not allow for us to afford an interior designer. Houman stepped in as an interior designer along with the construction of our interiors. His ideas and execution were amazing. We couldnt have done the design so well without him. We had a tight deadline and Houman is the type of a contractor that wont mind working long nights and weekends. He worked around the clock to get us to opening day. The day before opening, late night we had a plumbing issue. Houman went out of his way, and came late nigjt to fix our plumbing issue! Thanks a lot Houman! We are thankful! Houman is very organized, professional and courteous on site. If you are looking for a trustable contractor I highly recomend him! From his Proposal paper work till the finishing touches, everything Houman did for us is Extraordinary! We will work around his schedule for our next restaurant opening

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!!

If I could select 5 areas instead of just 3 that I liked about Dave, I would! If you have the opportunity to hire Dave, consider yourself lucky. You’ll feel completely at ease that your project will happen on time and on budget with good communication. And having been a builder hiring and managing contractors for some 10 years on and off...this kind of contractor is rare. I first hired Dave to install the 22 windows in my new construction project. That went extremely well. Then I hired him to paint the house. I wasn’t ready as scheduled and he handled it professionally with understanding. We started 2 days later and he hit it hard. Then I hired him to complete the drywall, mud and tape for 1000sf. Those walls are perfectly smooth...no texture...straight corners. Then he tiled a bathroom with 2’ x 6” tiles and adjoining pebble stone mesh tile. IT IS PERFECT. When the last task was taking longer than expected, Dave’s wife and son jumped in and worked until 11pm to finish when promised. As I say, if you’re reading this then count yourself lucky to have happened across Dave.

Excellent service, professional installation. Todd called, we agreed on a day and time (for the following day), he showed up and it was done! He definitely came ready to remove my old blinds and install my new ones....and, my goodness, he was quick and efficient! You could tell he's done this a million times and knows what he's doing. And, his fee was reasonably priced. I would definitely use him again!

Jose from JP Custom Home Construction is a total pro. Courteous, punctual, and a great value. I scraped a popcorn ceiling in one of my bedrooms; Jose sanded, taped, texturized, painted, ran electric, and installed a ceiling fan/light. Amazing work. I will definitely be using this little company again!

As a general contractor CEO Elite Home Construction, we had an outstanding experience working 'side-by-side' with Boyes and Son Construction team on a new build. From the initial on-site meeting through the final finishing touches, Boyes and Son Construction executed everything exactly as we specified - seamlessly- Their scope of work, architecturally as well as their attention to detail, resulted in a creative, high quality product and finish. The entire Boyes team is an exceptional group of professionals that are friendly and helpful on every level. We look forward to working with them again in the future!

This is my strong recommendation for Coggins Construction. Patrick of Coggins Construction is a local licensed contractor professional with over four decades of experience under his belt. We spent a lot of time talking with him discussing options and both he and his wife visited our home on the weekend. We hired Patrick to demo the front living room, demo the entryway, remove skylights, and reframe everything the original as built state. Patrick and his team have a passion for construction and it shows on the job. We had a strict timeline to meet. They showed up on time, worked hard, and cleaned up well after each day. Also they were very kind to my family, even my hyper Chihuahua! I had a few scope changes throughout and Patrick was able to accommodate my requests with great price and no impact to schedule. Thank you Coggins Construction for transforming our house into a home!

I needed someone to come trim 2 extremely tall (over 25 ft.) out-of-control palm trees. Enrique came to the house the same day I contacted him. From the first handshake, I knew he was an extremely honest, knowledgeable guy who really cares about plants and trees. His price quote was very reasonable and he left the area cleaner than when he and his assistant began the job. Not only that, but I hired his wife to clean my house and she is fantastic! Enrique was back at my house yesterday afternoon to discuss another landscaping project, putting down new gravel on the parkway adjoining my driveway and really delineating the space, and again, he just took a look at the space after measuring and was able to give me a very decent quote for the work involved. I have full trust in this honest, very professional guy with a great work ethic. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Hired GW Construction for a remodel job. Very happy with the company and the work they’ve done. Matt is great, very communicative, explains every process step by step. Returns phone calls promptly. Jody as well has been very helpful. Their foreman and crew have all been very professional, friendly, clean and on time. I feel really confident about choosing them as a company!

I though John communicated very well during our construction project. He was very flexible on any changes. Most contractors are very flaky; not showing up on time or wanting to get paid before the project is completed. You will not go wrong hiring John. He is top shelf.

The technician that came to my home was Tommy and he did an excellent job. We had a flood from our upstairs bathroom while everyone was out of the house and it flooded almost every room upstairs and then went through the ceiling and damaged our kitchen, family room and lower bathroom. Tommy came with another technician. They were both dressed very well, clean cut and the first thing he did was give me his card with his direct number on it. He then asked if he could walk through the home with me and he showed me all the areas that were wet and how far up the walls the water had gone. He used a moisture reading tool and he took plenty of photos so my insurance company could see. He explained what the process of getting my home dry would be and what exactly he would do and the time frame he thought it would take. He made sure that I was completely in the loop of everything his team was doing and the entire team were very considerate of our home and our belongings. Tommy went as far as meeting my insurance adjuster back at my home even though it was scheduled during a time that he wasn't supposed to be here. Tommy made sure to keep me in the conversation with my adjuster and himself. I would highly recommend this company should anyone I know suffer from water damage and I kept his card in case I ever need their company again for my own home.

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.  

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.
