Within approximately 5 minutes of submitting my request for plumbing help, I received a reasonable quote from Brandon, 1st Home Professional Services and we set up a date and time. He was prompt, efficient, and the problem fixed within 30 minutes. He is professional, and efficient. No doubt I will be using his services for other projects in my home.

Walt was great. Arrived on time, even alerted us about an earlier time due to a cancellation. He was professional and friendly, even took time to pet the dog. He assessed the problem and repaired quickly in the same day. He also guarantees his work for a year. Would definitely recommend his services to anyone who has repairs.

First off: great quality. I don't think I could have asked for a better realization of my plans for my bathroom remodel, which included extensive tile work and construction of a new closet. Pricing was reasonable; they were in the middle of the estimates that I got. That being said, there are a couple of negatives. The schedule was quoted for ten days, but it took sixteen. I did need to take half of one of the days originally scheduled to go into the office to support a client meeting, but a week's extra labor time to finish seemed excessive to me. Especially since after the original two weeks were finished, I had limited flexibility at work and needed to push work off to weekends. All told, with my restrictions at work, it took an extra two weeks beyond what was expected. Part of the problem was punctuality: workers were frequently late, so less got done each day. I also asked to keep a couple of pieces from the demo of the original bathroom that I never got. Overall, I would recommend this contractor if you have a reasonably flexible schedule. They truly do beautiful work, and I'm ultimately very happy with how my bathroom turned out. My designs were executed very nicely. I was just a little disappointed that it took so long.

I first hired Marvin to paint and frame 44 newly installed wooden windows in my historic row home. Because I was so impressed with his professionalism and superb quality of work, I contracted him for additional services including porcelain tile installation, surfacing and reframing a roof deck, and completing the finishes of a previous contractor. If you want to hire a competent company that takes price in their work and delivers high quality services, Baiza Construction Inc. should be your choice.

The gentleman at Deck Wonders were great. The onsite estimate was appropriately priced, they adhered to the schedule, and most importantly they executed quality work. They were courteous, respectfully pointed out unforeseen challenges, and respected their quote even after I changed some of the specs. They were cautious when moving furniture which was especially important with a new floor. Lastly, the clean up job was great - both at the end of the day during the project and then at the end of the project. I am super happy with the work - I will hire again and have already recommended their services to my friends.

Working with J-Team Construction was wonderful experience. Despite the challenges they faced with an older building, the job was handled professionally and the end result was far more beautiful than I originally imagined. I plan on using their services again as I continue to update.

Julio, from RJ Tech, helped me with my drywall ceiling repair. He came within a few days of my first contact to provide a free estimate of the work. He was knowledgeable, courteous and punctual. His estimate was extremely competitive. The work itself was completed swiftly by his staff and he explained everything that was going to happen beforehand. His staff didn't speak English well, but they were respectful and competent and careful not to damage anything in my living room. I'll definitely be calling Julio for future repairs.

I hired Paniz home improvement a few months ago to replace windows, doors and dry rot, They did an AMAZING job...

The job was done exactly on time. I will highly recommend This company to anyone. Thank you, thank you and THANK YOU!!!

My husband and I are very pleased with the basement remodel that North Patuxent completed for us. The leader of the crew Dean made sure that I was always happy and well informed during the entire project. It took a little over 2 weeks to complete. Rick and Lenny were the other crew members. I had a handful of additions and several creative/custom items. The remodel included wet bar install, flooring, backsplash, bathroom remodel, painting, drywall work, granite work, minor plumbing. This crew can do it all and they cleaned up well behind themselves when it was all done. We are already thinking about other projects in the house they can complete for us!

Ken & his team were very helpful in terms of designing and building our patio, retaining wall & deck. We were in a rush to get it completed and they managed to exceed the deadline by finishing in 2 days and with 2 days to spare. Professional, courteous, and excellent work. We plan to have Ken and his team back for more work. Definitely have our recommendation!!!

Julio was fantastic! I bought an old house with a structural beam issue. I was looking for someone to give me a straight answer on what needed to be done. Julio explained every step to me and why he proposing to do the work that way. He gave me hands down the best estimate, in price and detail of work. Julio started work exactly when he told me he would, sent me pictures and texts throughout the process, and finished ahead of schedule. He went above and beyond by adding some hardware that he felt was needed for structural reasons, but stuck to his original price estimate. I plan to call Julio for other construction needs I have. He's a great guy, will be real with you, show up on time, and do great work for a great price!

Ivan gave us a free quote for a bathroom repair including subfloor rebuild, drywall work, paint, and tile work. It was in line with what insurance estimated so we went with his services. He was punctual and communicative the entire time. The job took a bit longer than expected but it was at no expense or worry to me as Ivan operated pretty seamlessly to finish the job. He left the site clean every day. Do recommend him for general contracting needs.

We received outstanding work from Chris Harvey who performed as a General Contractor to reconfigure the backyard of my townhouse. This effort required building a three foot high cinder block wall at the end of my property, then leveling the yard which had a severe slope by back filling from the existing cement patio to the wall. He built a slate sidewalk from the patio to the wall, covered the patio in slate and built slate steps through the wall out to the walking path behind the wall. Chris had a cedar fence with gate built around the yard and then landscaped the yard with top soil, sod, rock, and plantings. It was done exactly as I asked and in a very timely manner with only interruptions for weather and two visits by Miss Utility. Chris is very sociable and easy to work with. He was present for each sub contractor as they started and completed their work. I highly recommend Chris Harvey Landscaping.

Dominik is a nice guy. His pricing was better than most and the quality of work was good. The project dragged longer that initially estimated but the main issue I had with Dominik was that he was hard to get a hold. As far as schedule goes he overpromised and under delivered. This was a complete kitchen remodeling project that required different set of skills. In the end everything turned out fine and the kitchen looks great. I would recommend him based on the price and my belief that most likely I will have the same scheduling issues with most good contractors that don't brake the bank.

We had Wrangler Construction repair our roof after we had damage from storms. Bryon responded quickly to our request with a quote and details on the estimated work. Their pricing was competitive and they were willing to work with our schedules. We spoke on the phone and the next day Bryon met at our house to repair the roof. The price and estimated time were exact and Bryon was very friendly and professional. We now have a repaired roof and would definitely use Wrangler Construction again in the future. 10/10 customer service and job satisfaction! Thanks for the quick turn around!

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.
