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!

Ken helped us out with a VERY last minute request, and got our report back to us that same weekend so we could have it to our lawyer. He is very personable and took the time to explain a lot of options and to give us helpful details about the construction of our new home. The report we received was thorough, he is very detail-oriented and examined the home with great care. We are so glad we booked our inspection with Mill River!

Jacques Alain of JA Drywall and Home Improvement, did a wonderful job with our renovation project on our duplex. He updated both the kitchen and the bathroom and everything turned out great. We would definitely and happily work with Jacques again.

Peter was a gem to find on Thumbtack. He is highly experienced and knowledgeable with electrical work but also with all construction coding and repairs. Our living room has had 3 non-working light switches for almost a year. We tried many times to troubleshoot and fix it ourselves but with no success. Despite our making a mess of it, Peter was patient and determined and got out two three-way switches and the one four-way switch all working seamlessly so now we don't have to fall over each other to turn the lights on. We also had a faulty GFCI connection in the kitchen which had blown half of the outlets and switches in the kitchen. Again, Peter tacked the problem and quickly knew what to do. He talked to us as he was working so here were no unpleasant surprises and so we'd be able to see what we did wrong when we changed out our switches. Thanks Peter :) I highly recommend Peter Lingley!!!

I received 3 quotes for remodeling some areas in my house and Upkeep Property Management gave a very reasonable quote and was the most honest and no-nonsense of all the companies. They showed up exactly on the day scheduled, on time and actually brought a double crew (6 guys) and completed the job faster than planned. Everything went extremely smoothly and efficiently and they kept clear communication with me throughout the process. They also cleaned up amazingly well. I can only say the best things about them and highly recommend them. Excellent Job overall.

Stenio and Marcelo were by far the best contractors I have hired. Great quality workmanship, courteous, and always on time. They estimated the work finished at approx 5 days, but worked long to finish a day before that to get my home in order for the thanksgiving holiday. Before I forget and their prices are very reasonable.

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.

We recently completed a large addition at our home and recruited Dakota Builders to oversee the project. This was not a small undertaking, by any means. Kevin showed up everyday, on time, negotiated with contractors (there were many) and met with us on a daily basis to discuss ongoing progress, quotes, time frames, etc. He worked closely with our architect, laid out everything and was very detail oriented. We made the right choice with Kevin. His work ethic and attention to detail is outstanding.

Joe, first of all thank you! My family and I are very thankful we found you. I am sure we will talk again in the near future. Martelle Builders are nothing short of professional, responsible, but most of all AMAZING at what they do. I have built a few houses and I have had my share of terrible contractors but Martelle Builders by far exceeded all expectations. There are contractors that will just go into a job and just do it, and then there is Martelle Builders, who treats his job as these houses were of his own. It is more than just the money for these guys. Oh, and did I mention they framed my new construction mid-winter?? Do NOT hesitate to hire MB... I am very glad I didn't.

Lobo Properties & Construction was very professional throughout my home renovation, the work completed was superb. In addition the price was great compared to other estimates that I have had. His response time was quick, within 24 hours he was on site and arrived early. Jeff completed many projects on our home consisting of a bathroom, kitchen and bedroom demolition. His crew was very professional throughout the process. After demolition he completed the remodel of my kitchen and bathrooms as well as new windows throughout the home. He then removed all the junk off the property and did a thorough cleanup of the site. Jeff listened to our ideas and gave us valuable alternatives that worked with our budget. Jeff was very personable and had amazing attention to detail, he went above and beyond with our project. Thank you for everything we will be using Lobo Properties &Construction again. Will recommend.

Home Doctor of America performed a Home Energy Solutions Audit and provided insulation services at my home. His crew was professional, prompt, knowledgeable, and clean. The Home Energy Audit was performed as part of the Energize CT program. It was the best $149 that I could have spent. Just by having the energy audit performed I was able to cut the cost of my insulation project in half. They completed a large job in a weeks time. My energy bills have been drastically reduced. Would highly recommend the Home Doctor of America crew.

We had the pleasure of working with Mark Troiano from CJT Development to build our custom new house. He is everything you would want in your contractor. He made great suggestions and helped keep us stay within our budget. When we met with him to go over out blueprints he came back with ways we could save money and not lose the integrity of our dream home. He did an amazing job sticking to the time table that we discussed previous to starting our build. Mark does an amazing job of explaining the process of everything and stayed in constant contact with us throughout the entire project. He was always available to answer our questions whether it be in person, on the phone, text or email. Mark was always willing to help out where ever it was needed. He is hard working and honest and works with quality subcontractors. Our house came out beautiful and the quality is amazing. I would highly recommend Mark to do any project, and would hire him again in the Here is a link to our home on Houzz http://www.houzz.com/projects/1482269

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.
