I feel very fortunate that I ran across Steve Petersen and his Mountaintop Construction company when it was determined that I would need a new roof on my house as a result of the large May 8, 2017 hail storm in the Denver, Colo. metro areas. Steve got in touch with me almost immediately after he was referred to me by a referral company called Thumbtack. Steve gave me a more than fair quote on price to replace my roof and had no problems with my waiting a couple of months to have the roof done. Steve helped me all the way through the job, coming out to check out my roof and provide me with his estimate within 24 hrs. I am an 81 yr. old Senior and don't always understand everything and Steve was very patient and thorough in explaining everything so that I would understand it all. He checked my insurance adjuster's estimate and his estimate was within the insurance estimate. He ordered the materials for me and was here up early and monitored the roofing crew's work until the job was done. He relieved me of my anxiety and lack of knowledge on all that had to be done, type of material and how much etc. I could not be happier and feel very lucky and fortunate that I had a man like Steve helping me get the new roof done. If I ever need another roof or other work done that his company does, I will not hesitate to call him again and also will refer anyone I know who is looking for a contractor to call Steve and his company, I have no regrets and am sure anyone else would not have any regrets either. There are good companies, and medium companies and poor companies, Steve's Mountaintop Construction Company happens to be an Excellent and Outstanding company in my mind. One of the best of the best.

Ryan Witt installed patio cover for my home. It was a substantial patio 30x10 ft. Ryan did outstanding work and was extremely professional. Ryan was able to translate our request and anticipate our requirements and produce quick estimate. Ryan was also extremely flexible and able to adjust project as it evolved and was able to adjust and add the finishing touches we requested. Project turned out great. Bottom line: Ryan is 5 star contractor. I would highly recommend him to others. He works well with other tradesmen and with inspectors. Ryan delivers quality product in a timely manner at a reasonable price.

It was not the most existing or creative project, just cutting back some tiles to accommodate a piece of furniture, but Mack did a very good job quickly and cost efficient.

Leroy came in to repair extensive wall damage we had as a result of removing a wall between our kitchen and dining room, as well as to patch multiple holes in the walls that were made when the electric was updated. He showed up early, was professional and friendly, and was a real pleasure to be around over this 2-day job. Our plaster and lathe walls pose challenges, and a contractor brought in by our GC said we'd have to drywall over everything as opposed to fixing the plaster. Leroy assured us this was unnecessary and proceeded to do a fantastic patch job that supposedly 'couldn't be done' because of the degree of damage to the walls, and he did it at a much lower cost than other options we'd considered. He took it upon himself to do an extensive repair to some drywall in the ceiling, where someone had done a poor job drywalling over the plaster, even though it wasn't in the original scope of the project. He finished on time and (as another reviewer mentioned) did a great job cleaning up - he hosed off our front porch and welcome mats before leaving. I would hire Leroy for other projects in a heartbeat (in fact I plan to), and strongly recommend him to others.

Simply put, I consider Don with Zigler Building Systems an Excellent General Contractor and a man of integrity… “That will handle everything and get it done.” Period. Without wasting any extra time or money. I have also been in the construction industry for a great many years. I know the drill well and understand the process. Don has a passion for attention to detail and an excellent sense of high quality workmanship. My project was substantial covering many weeks. A basement re-construction project which required all aspects of construction. I spoke with Don about the overall plan and my thoughts and considerations, he then went to work. Handling any/all day to day decisions by himself, without the need to consult with me. This was perfect as I placed my complete trust in Don and he completely delivered. I felt completely comfortable with Don in our home. I HIGHLY recommend Zigler Building Systems for ANY construction project. Consider it handled!

As a single woman I was nervous about seeking out a professional contractor to renovate my deck. I noted that Red Earth Construction on Thumbtack was a father/son family owned business out of Castle Rock. Jim, the owner and father promptly responded to my Thumbtack ad and we began to speak on the phone to share my dreams for a deck. Upon meeting Jim, he was friendly, fatherly, and fair-minded. I trusted him and his judgement for my deck design. I quickly realized that my $4,000 budget does not cover the expense or the quality, no maintanence materials I desired for my deck project. The estimate was double my budget but I went forth. I had family coming into town for my daughter's wedding and my current deck was unsafe and unsightly. The deck project was delayed a bit due to rain, however once started it was completed in 10 days. I made it in time to entertain my company. The father/son/son team along with contracted help were present, available to talk to about design issues and unforeseen concerns. Unfortunately those unforeseen issues like beam spacing and stairwells increased my costs $2,000 beyond my original estimate. Ouch, that was tough because at that point I was committed. My advice would be to really be accurate on those estimates, check for the unforeseen, as those additional expenses are challenging to afford. My finished deck is beautiful. Red Earth Construction LLC, owned by Jim Endley and sons are truly men of integrity and quality workmanship. I know that I will call them again for any home project and recommend them to you. Yes, because of the charming, safe and beautiful deck that I enjoy but moreso because I know that if I have any issues with the deck or materials Jim will return my calls and address my concerns. The attention to detail, passion for creating beauty in homes and warm, friendly service, that's what makes Red Earth Construction LLC outstanding!

Dear Mike, We are writing this letter of recommendation for you to share with others if they ask for references. If after reading this review, people have any concerns about contracting with you, please feel free to have them contact us. We would be happy to talk to them, or let them walk through our house in order to experience firsthand the quality of construction which you deliver. It was truly a pleasure to work with you in the construction of our beautiful house. In all aspects the construction is of extremely high quality and craftsmanship, and you were very fair and reasonable in meeting our requirements. We were especially impressed with your ability to adhere to tight cost and schedule targets while responding to the change orders we requested. The fact that halfway through the project you were able to shorten the construction schedule by two weeks in order to meet our required move-in date is a credit to your project management skills. After obtaining the Certificate of Occupancy we were impressed with your responsiveness in closing out our "punch list" of minor changes and fixes. We have walked through many new houses that cost much more than ours, but they did not have the quality of construction and craftmanship which can be easily observed upon entering our house. Again, it has been a pleasure doing business with you. You represent the standard by which other contractors should be judged, and are a credit to the residential construction industry.

We had have the flooring fixed in our bathroom. Unique Transformations came out quickly and gave a very good estimate. They then worked with our schedule to do the repairs. Not only did they arrive when expected, they did an excellent job, and for the price that we expected. We will definitely use Unique Transformations in the future.

Mugs from Trim Pro was very professional and did a great job building our gazebo. He accomplished the work in the time he said he would and was reasonably priced. He went above and beyond, making sure our gazebo was secured to the ground and level. It looks fabulous, and I am planning to hire him for additional jobs.

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.  

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.  

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.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
