Walter Lopez is a pleasure to work with. From helping with design ideas to working long days until the job was done, he is always prepared to keep going once he begins a job. AndI must add that he is the only contractor I have ever hired who has willingly returned to redo work that needed to be redone without making me wait, and after having already been paid in full. This is very rare! I have since then hired Walter to do additional work on my property, and will continue to do so, and will recommend him to others whenever I can. He not only has good ideas, but he knows how to execute them, and knows how to keep costs close to his estimates. He is a man of his word and I recommend him highly.

Me. Eisengrein fixed the hammering noise out washing machine made in no time flat. He’s easy to work with. He explains everything. And now that I know he does many handyman jobs, I will be calling him for other projects.

Marty has completed several projects for us in the past six years. Every one was expertly completed, on time, according to specifications. Marty's prices are very reasonable, his estimates accurate, and his workmanship excellent. He is exceptionally versatile. He can tackle almost anything, from carpentry to masonry, floor laying to plumbing, electrical to painting and pressure washing. Projects completed for us include the conversation of two bedrooms into a studio with kitchen, with a new vinyl floor and the addition of an outside/entry door; replace an existing single basin vanity with a two basin vanity, and new vinyl floor; remodeling our laundry room; pressure washing and painting the house exterior. Marty is an excellent, reliable and affordable all-rounder with a pleasant personality. We will request his services for any future project we might have. We recommend him highly. He is a jewel!

Joel arrived promptly and worked hard all day. He did a great job clearing brush, weeds and other debris from a yard that was neglected by the previous owner. We will hire him for other landscaping projects.

Herson and his crew did a great job with both the roofing and siding projects. While there are always unexpected things pop up in construction projects, they handled them as best as they could. Despite the 3-4 storms which hindered the work, they did their best to stay close to the schedules.

I contacted Spirit Contracting to redo a renovation of my bathroom, after another contractor, who I contracted via Thumbtack, did a horrendous job. Frankie was early to the appointment, patient, went thru the entire job that was completed and advised what needed to be redone. They did an amazing job getting my bathroom completed! I cannot believe the difference!! Spirit Contracting is the way to go!! They were professional, punctual, clean and great to work with. Frankie is honest and pays attention to the littlest details and stands behind his work 1000%. I would most definitely recommend this company and plan on using their services in the future!

We used JVI Maintenance Services for many years and have been very pleased with the results. They pay attention to details and they went over and above our expectations. We moved from the area but I have been looking for a company that compares with JVI Services however they set very high standards.

Bruce Ring replaced an exterior door for me today. I received notification from Thumbtack with names of three people who would be available for the job. I asked two of them to provide estimates for me. Bruce was very thorough and let me know what needed to be done other than just my basic request. It was obvious that Bruce was concerned about the quality of the finished job which is why I decided to hire him The job was completed in one day. The exterior door as well as a new wooden screen door were installed and trim replaced where necessary. Both doors work beautifully. Bruce went above and beyond by installing a mechanical door bell for me at no extra cost. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed work done.

I liked that the owner gave me a total price for the project and not a per hour with a huge first hour price of $180+ like the other handymen co’s. The assembly price would be more than the item itself! Since Jeff was honest and didn’t price gauge me he gets to bid on thousands of dollars of other projects I need done ASAP. Great Job!

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 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.

Clean/efficient/trustworthy/good craftsmanship/affordable I am usually a tough guy to please, but I have no complaints. We had a bedroom door widened and french doors put in in its place. Mike was flexible and fast in terms of his ability to come by the house, take a look at everything, and write up an estimate. We decided to hire him as he was personable, thorough, professional, and affordable. He was able to start the job very soon and completed everything quickly, working while we were at work so there was no stress of construction. Each day when he left, he left the work area spotless and hazard free. I never saw one piece of dust or debris left behind by him. The final product exceeded our expectations. Mike took the care to match the trim work on the inside of the room with the trim on the other doors and windows in that room and the trim work on the outside to match that room. We did not ask him to take this extra step but he did it because he knew it would look better, and it does. He also installed a solid wood threshold/transition between the rooms (one is hardwood and the other carpeted) because the existing hardwood in the transition was a little messed up. Again, we didn't ask him to do this, but it made the final product look so much better. With all of the extras, Mike still remained at his quoted price when the job was done. No hidden or added costs, no hastle. We will be hiring Goodman Building Company again for all of our needed carpentry jobs.

I have seen BCS' work and know first hand about their approach to client management and their regard for the end user experience. As a design professional and project manager, I value the type of expertise BCS brings to the construction process. They deliver quality control and know how to streamline production and construction administration, giving me the freedom and assurance I need to focus on exploring good design.

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.

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

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.  

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.

What is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
