Sent estimate quickly without seeing project - only pictures and a description(although both were very accurate). Zach and his brother showed up on time. Price was at the top end of my budget, but his reviews made me pull the trigger. I'm happy I hired him. Stone work and quality looks great. On top that, he's personable and easy to work and communicate with. Kyle - General Contractor

Excellent, outstanding , well crafted, professional and a job well done. That's our description for the second floor, 21 fts. Patio extension he crafted on our house. It blend perfect with the existent patio. The bottom is also flushed and the columns are just the same style. Ryan was not only an excellent carpenter creating an exact extension of our existent patio, he also installed a barn door in our bathroom, installed a sliding door where a window was located, fixed the kitchen top cabinet and provided accurate guidance and advise at every single important decision we had to make in the process. His effort and dedication facilitated a stressful process. He is not only our carpenter; today is our friend. This wonderful man is extremely respectful, dedicated, positive, methodical on his crafting process. He is proud of his work's result and enjoyed the ride of remodel our house. He is well connected with skilled construction men that also helped in specific tasks at the house. If you are looking for a skilled, fair price, professional and dedicated carpenter or construction company which is licensed, possess insurance and know the legal process to get a construction permit, RW remodelers is the company you should trust.

The Romero's responded to my inquiry immediately. He came by to look at my jobs that day and gave us an estimate that evening. They began work in a couple days and finished the job within the week. They were both politeand, professional and knew what they were doing. We will certainly call on them again for future projects.

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!

Ricky Morris provided a new window to the living room and new hardwood flooring to the family room on concrete slab including window and baseboard trim and casing. I am happy to recommend him for the work he did for us and can say he is one of the best contractors with whom I have ever worked. All of the measures described above would receive a 10/10 rating and I am looking forward to having him complete some other home projects that have been languishing at my hand over the past few years. He is courteous and knowledgeable and a pleasure with whom to work. Jeff B.

Managing 70+ Properties in MF-Real Estate Industry requires maintenance constantly. Keeping water out of a tenant's unit alone is a battle everyday when you have as many properties as we do. Scudderfield has a solution that is in a class of its own. ClaimCollab (their adjustment partner) inspected and compiled photo backed estimates for all our properties and negotiating all damage line items with our insurance company (StateFarm) and made us customers for always. Breaching the million dollar threshold of covered damages is still unbelievable but believe it! Once everything was approved, Ben coordinated their hand picked crews for each trade specifically and got the work done methodically with superb quality and in a timely fashion. I can't say enough good things about this team. They are AllStars! They are our "GoTo" when dealing with an act of God. 100% Recommend. If you're in real estate, you can't afford not to. Seriously. -Case

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!

We received about 8 estimates from different companies. Ransom delivered the most concise and least confusing quote of all. He was very easy to work with and super flexible with our time and budget. He is a super guy and does incredible work. My dogs loved him he is very professional and every tile was placed perfect (I checked all of them :)). He made suggestions and offered insight a first time bathroom remodel easily could have missed and been disappointed. We have 2 more bathrooms, a laundry room and kitchen all which we will be exclusively using Precision Tile Works for.

Shane and ALL his guys are truly the best! They are kind and very thorough, extremely detail oriented but also flexible, accommodating and trustworthy . We had a horrible experience with a contractor that did our job completely wrong and Burke construction and design inc came in and made us feel confident and fixed everything that was wrong and restored our faith in contractors. Contractors often get a bad reputation but Shane and his company are changing that reputation! Take a chance on them, it will be more than worth it!

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.  

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.

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.

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.
