I am a RE/MAX realtor and Johnny was one of 3 contractors I called to do an estimate for one of my VIP clients. He was EARLY to the appointment, was very knowledgeable, detailed and clear in his advice and estimate and gave me such a level of confidence that I will be calling him to do an estimate on the floors in my home. Well done!

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!

My husband and I just had our sliding-glass doors replaced with a brand new custom window. The Rymar construction crew (Mark, Brian, etc.) were fantastic! They did an impeccable job and took the time to explain the process to us. They were also friendly and professional. We'd recommend Rymar Construction and Services, LLC, to anyone. Thank you!

Freeman Enmeier is a complete professional. He came in to our commercial construction (church building) after having to fire a previous general contractor. We had lost over 7 months and thousands of dollars. The church was desparate. In came Freeman, fixed the mess and went above and beyond the call of duty. He tirelessly worked with myself, our architect, the city, and all our subcontractors with excellence in mind. Because of his diligence we received a grant award for coming in on schedule. At the end of the project he not only came in on time, but to our surprise UNDER budget. He actually passed on his savings to us. What a class act. We not only got a building but gained a friend. I have already asked him to be my personal contractor for my new home. I would recommend Freeman Enmeier for any project large of small. As he says... He bids the job, he DOES the job.

We are part of a 6 unit condo complex. George Sanders Construction repaired and replaced the decking and rails on all 6 units. I also had a few small things done on my unit . Was one of the only contractors who actually responded when questioned. Any issues were handled immediately. Also, reasonable compared to some of the quotes we received. Very satisfied.

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.

The new driveway looks incredible. We replaced an old and crumbling asphalt driveway. The process to get there was not as smooth as I would have liked, but Ray kept overcoming every problem and moving the project forward. Very straightforward, honest man to work with and to have as your contractor

      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.  

      Why should you hire a contractor?

      Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.
