Forest & team were awesome. Literally one of the top 3 experiences I've had with hiring a trade in Denver. Forest came over within a couple of days to get me a quote, explain the job and walk me through the process. He checked with Jeffco on building specs and communicated the needed changes and cost effects. He then fit me in the schedule earlier than expected. Told me job was 3 days - team finished in 3 days. Cleaned up and took some extra with them. These guys are legit - highly recommend.

Ian and Skyler did a really great job. As someone who is not as knowledgeable about how to properly hang photos, Ian made sure that everything was stable and even made sure to not leave a mess from all the drill holes etc. It took a few hours for all of my projects but I think that's also because of the type of building I live in. They wanted to make sure they used the right equipment and had everything level. I will definitely contact Ian again for any future projects.

Chris was great. I recently purchased a condo, and had some issues and necessary upgrades in both the garage and bathroom. Chris showed at the exact agreed upon time, he is super nice and personable. I showed him my issues and concerns, he offered his professional advice and we went after it to correct and complete the upgrades. Everything was taken care of in 4 hours. His is a total professional with a great work ethic, and very affordable. I could not be happier with the end results and cannot recommend Chris enough for any home projects. He will be my go to guy for any and all future needs.

Wed Aug 16, 8:18 PM If you’re contemplating hiring a good General Contractor, Daniel Gonzalez and his construction teams are your guys! We hired Daniel to finish 1,300 square feet including an extra bedroom, laundry area, storage room and quilt studio in our basement. Daniel gave a fair quote and he brought top notch teams and hard working guys to the project! His electrician did an excellent job installing all new electrical; and his HVAC guy ran new heat ducts and installed a whole house humidifier. The plumber ran new plumbing for a utility sink and washing machine. The framer did a fabulous job independently building our design to our exact specifications and even added decorative arches. The drywall guys hauled in heavy drywall sheets one-by-one because it wouldn’t fit into our window wells. The drywall installers got 4 rooms put up in one and ½ days! The tapers and texture's did an excellent job taping drywall seams and adding texture in less than two days for each team. Daniel’s crews showed up on time, they were respectful, trustworthy, and we appreciated how hard they all worked to get the job done in a timely manner. Daniel and his trim and paint team did an excellent job painting, installing our flooring, trim, doors, hardware and window ledges. Best of all, Daniel is an honest guy and does what he agrees to do. Treat these guys right and they’ll treat you right! Great job! We love our new space! Thanks Daniel!

It was a refreshing change to be part of the creative design team led by Lance, the prime Architect with F9 Productions on a new Commercial Project in Arvada. We provided the Civil Engineering for the new 16-bed assisted living center. Lance was very professional, organized, available, extremely easy to communicate with, clear and descriptive in regards to our design scope. Lance and the F9 Production team, were all timely and diligent in delivering the necessary information needed to keep us working efficiently on the extensive site development design. Lance was a valued ally as we negotiated the complicated, project dictated redesign of the adjacent City 4-Way Street Intersection. A process encumbered by difficult existing street conditions and numerous City of Arvada Public Works requirements. Lance's Architectural design is creative, beautiful, very functional, integrates extremely well into the building site, and exceeded the client's expectations. It was a pleasure to work with Lance and we look forward to our next design team collaboration with F9 Productions. Best Regards, Matt Scheel - Principal, BMS Architects and Engineers

Throughout each step of getting my sink replaced, I received clear and timely communication. Once present are my home, Antonio took time to explain to me each step of the process to ensure I was satisfied with the work. He was careful and efficient. He even spent time cleaning up (even though we are remodeling and the house is a mess) AND stool away the old sink. Would certainly hire again for other jobs.

We had our bathroom remodeled by Jose. Throughout the process Jose remained professional and accommodating. The project was not without its hiccups, however, Jose was quick to offer effective and creative solutions. We are 6 months in to our new bathroom and couldn't be happier with the end result, it is exactly what we had imagined. Thank you Jose for helping us realize our vision!

I would recommend Paraiso Construction. Francisco was easy going and knowledgeable about all areas of the process to finish our basement for us. There were several things he saw that I would have overlooked and he made sure they were done correctly. We are very happy with our new living space and know we will be spending much quality family time there as well as being able to open up a comfortable space for guests. Thanks Francisco!

    Curtis and JG were very flexible with our needs and wants on a small addition project. We are DIYers, but wanted them to build the exterior of the addition and deal with the roofing. The guys did a great job matching the siding to the rest of house and kept us in the loop every step of the way always happy to answer questions and help with project ideas. We would highly recommend Made Right Builders for anyone with a big or small project! A note on the photos: we plan on painting the exterior ourselves, but didn't want to forget to write a review.

    I had the privilege of working with Tom at Envision last year. He completely renovated my upstairs and finished my basement. He’s the best contractor I ever used and I’ve renovated many homes over the years. He also renovated three of my friends homes last year and they had nothing but great things to say about him. Excellent service and high quality work. He listens, he’s professional, he’s onsite and did not leave until I was 100% satisfied.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    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.

    What do general contractors charge?

    If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

    • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
    • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
    • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
    • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
