Still working on a bathroom remodeling project with Harry. He did a great job today, and he offered some good suggestions to make the job better. Waiting on a vanity, can't wait to see the finished job!

Mario is very professional, respectful and courteous; his work is excellent and was completed as we planned and on schedule. I am very impressed with Mario's quick response to my posting ; he arrived on time for our first meeting and prepared a written estimate within 24 hours.To my amazement, Mario and his coworker completed the entire project in one day and left my yard spotless (even raking the leaves) I highly recommend Mario.

Thiago from Alpha Pro Painting came and gave us a fair estimate to repaint our home exterior. He was extremely professional, communicated well as to when he would arrive, answered all our questions, was very polite, and did a fantastic job to our complete satisfaction above and beyond expectation. I would him hire again and am recommending him to our friends and relatives. Using a service like Thumbtack may seem intimidating, but once you meet Thiago and look at the many other glowing reviews of his work you can rest easy that he will perform to your satisfaction. This is a company that takes pride in it's work and has experienced craftsmen.

Afonso and Evandro were great. They did excellent work to close my chimney. I also hired them to do two other jobs, replaced a leaky boot and replaced some missing siding. I plan to hire them for additional jobs that I already have planned. Fair prices, fast work and good communication.

Everything. From the initial estimating to the final review, these professional painters were a pleasure to work with. They painted the exterior of our house. First they did wood replacement and repair. Then they sanded, primed the entire house and painted 2 coats. All the downspouts and shutters were carefully removed and later replaced exactly as they were and cleaned up. Their attitude is one of open communication and no surprises. When we had questions or asked them to do something a little differently, they were willing to help. Lastly, I think their pricing is very competitive. I recommend asking these painters to take a look at your job.

The guys did an amazing job in my kitchen and my basement. I originally wanted just new countertops and new floors in my basement, but as the job progressed I knew I needed to take advantage of the fact that I had amazing craftsmen working in my home. They were so responsive and open with their material and labor costs I truly couldn’t resist asking them to do more jobs for me. I’m not much of a person who leaves reviews, but since they did such an amazing job I feel as though it’s important for anyone looking for a new kitchen anywhere in Nassau and and Suffolk County New York that Dimension Restoration and Construction is by far their best and most competitively priced option. I did get other quotes which the office girl Ishita suggested I do and she was right to do so. The prices I received from allure and a bunch of other kitchen and bath companies was DOUBLE what Dimension Restoration and Construction charged me. I have to say this has been hands down the easiest remodel I have ever experienced in my history of owning my home. Thank you Dimension!

They came by to check out the job, were very friendly and knowledgeable, said I'd have the estimate in a few days. A week later, I never got the estimate, they said I "should have" and would get it in a few days as soon as someone got back from vacation. ANOTHER full week later and they won't return any of my calls or messages, still never got an estimate. They might do good work, but I'll never know since they're totally unprofessional and/or just don't want my business. Use with caution.

We had been looking to get a storm door installed for a while. After getting a couple quotes that seemed high, we decided to give Handy LLC a try. After looking at the job, Andy was quick to send us an estimate. We were very pleased with his price, so we decided to have him do the install. We couldn't be happier with the finished product. The job was completed in a timely manner and the work area was cleaned up. We will definitely be using Handy LLC again!

From our first contact with Fortin and Miller Construction to the end of the project, Nate and Josh were professional, responsive and punctual. They provided us with a clear, concise proposal and went above and beyond to ensure that we were satisfied with the cost of their services and the quality of their work. We would definitely use them for future projects and highly recommend them to others considering their services.

I hired AJames construction to do a handleful of repair and updating projects. They showed up each morning as they said, did great work, and were extremely polite and professional. I was looking to hire someone who handn't been on tumbtack that long, to give them a chance to build up a reputation, and it absolutely paid off. I will hire them again as needed. They come highly recommended.

From day one Paulino was very responsive to any inquiry I had about the job. He was professional throughout. Due to traffic conditions he was a few minutes behind schedule but he gave me adequate notice of the delay. He was meticulous with the job (interior door installation), completed the job in a timely manner and cleaned up after completion. I highly recommend Paulino Home improvement to anyone who is looking for a door installer!

We hired Mike last fall for a major project of removing 26 large multi-sized contemporary windows, and to replace them with new construction windows. A massive and daunting task when considering the scope of the project. He and his proficient work crew did an exemplary job finalizing the project beyond our expectations. We appreciated his ongoing communication, professional skills, attention to detail, the cleanliness of the worksite, and respect for our home. He completed the project, within the budget, which was a fair and competitive price and in a timely manner. Mike takes pride in his work, and no corners are cut. We recently rehired Mike to replace 3 multi-paneled sliding glass doors with stationary side panels which was also done equally well. We would highly recommend Goodman Builders to anyone seeking professional work, a knowledgeable, skilled, and respectful work crew, and value for your dollar.

Tim was just what was required for this stair building job. He was timely on the first appointment to discuss the job and prompt on the day to perform the task. In addition, Tim provided precisely what we was necessary and even came in under the projected price, which was an accurate Materials / Labor breakdown. After this good experience we are already looking for additional projects he can contribute to our whole house renovation (turned new construction). Thank you, Tim, and we look forward to seeing you again at the property or around the community. Tom (Westbrook, CT)

We could not be happier with Dennis's work....our house looks amazing. It is a late 1800's construction that required a complete lead abatement and restoration. Dennis and his crew stripped it down to bare wood meticulously, replaced clapboards and trim, repaired the back porch and antique garage doors, and today it is a show piece, which the Historical Society wants to include in their next house tour! Dennis was instrumental in guiding us toward the perfect color scheme and design, which admittedly was not our original idea, but in retrospect turned out perfectly....we can't thank Dennis and Pro Quality enough for all they did. Dennis goes above and beyond to get every last detail just right, and his customer's satisfaction is clearly the highest priority. A true master at what he does....

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.  

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 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.

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.
