Ray was extremely pleasant to work with. He arrived on the agreed too start time and performed the work in a very professional manner. Ray was very knowledgeable and answered any and all questions that I had about the job, as well as other potential jobs that I may have. Ray removed my broken back door and replaced it with the new one that I had already chosen from Lowes. Ray picked up the door for me and hauled off the old door as well as the accompanying debris from the install and he was able to provided all this service and work at the estimated price that he quote me online. The door installation looks great, functions as it should. I will be using ASB Construction, and specifically Ray in the very near future for additional work I need, including replacing the front door as well. If you are having a hard time finding a trusted professional that knows what he is doing and willing to do it at a very fair price, then you would be derelict in your research if you don't consider ABS Construction for your carpentry needs!

Jim and his crew arrived on time every day. They worked diligently and professionally. Jim offered money saving suggestions and design tips. P.J. & J. is the company to call for any renovations you might have (Our renovation project involved 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, family room, dining room, living room and laundry). We are looking forward to working with them again in 2018, when they will return to update our kitchen.

George Sanders of Sanders Built did a wonderful job on the complete remodel of our interior and the quality of the work was of the highest standard and done on a timely basis. In addition to normal reconstruction, he undertook adding support in the craw space to level the floors, routed stove exhaust from the center of the kitchen concealing it through the existing walls, and reconstructed an unstable exterior wall from the interior room saving substantial money. As a CPA not in construction, I didn't expect my suggestion for changes to the existing layout would be considered. However, I found they were welcomed, improved with sound suggestions and the results completely satisfactory to my family. I will definitively use this construction company for future projects with my properties. Dale Zentz

I simply cannot say enough good things about Rob Prine and his business. This is one contractor that still does it "Old School" and by that I mean, hard work, not leaving until the job is completely done, and the customer is completely happy. He is as savvy a contractor as there is out there, and you would be foolish to even consider hiring anyone else. Folks, you get what you pay for, and Rob is worth many times more than what you are paying him, because of his many decades of experience. Don't waste your time and precious money, hire the best first, R.E. Prine Construction and Consulting.

KAI Vision Builders (KAI) completed two major home remodeling efforts for me totaling approximately $175,000. The first project consisted of adding a second story to my existing home, which consisted of a master bedroom suite and on-suite. Kai was responsible for preparing designs for our review and approval, permitting, construction and construction management. During the construction phase, Phil Foster monitored the ongoing work too ensure work quality and timely completion of the project. The second project KAI Vision Builders completed for us (completed at a later date) was the complete renovation and remodeling of the front elevation of our home. Again KAI Vision Builders; Again they provided the quality and professionalism that we had experienced during the first project. We would recommend AI Vision Builder to those considering home renovation/remodeling efforts.

My husband and I hired this company to do some remodeling work in my bathroom including the removal of an old tub and surround and replacing it with a walk in, tiled shower. The owner, Blaine McCutchan just finished up today and WOW-I am ecstatic with the result! My expectations have actually been exceeded, the result is absolutely beautiful. In addition, the crew was very neat and meticulous, always cleaning up after themselves and keeping any mess to a minimum-this was very much appreciated as my husband and I lived in the home as the work was being completed. Mr. McCutchan kept us well informed during each step of the construction, was more than happy to incorporate our suggestions into the design of the project and was always prompt/on time and considerate during the entire process. We have several other upcoming remodeling projects and will enthusiastically be hiring Mr.McCutchin and his company Catalina Construction for them! We are more than happy to recommend Catalina Construction!

I used Thumbtack.com with hopes of finding a person that could haul away some things that had piled up in my garage. I contacted Mr. Johnson informing him of what I needed done, and he immediately responded. We coordinated the time, and luckily for me, Mr. Johnson was available the same day. I can honestly tell you that I am extremely satisfied with Mr. Johnson’s level of professionalism. After a quick evaluation of the work that was needed, he gave me a very reasonable estimate, and began to work. Mr. Johnson completed his work in a timely fashion, and to my satisfaction. I highly recommend Mr. Johnson and the “In and Out Lawn Care and Hauling” business. I would not hesitate in hiring Mr. Johnson again!

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.
