Words can not even begin to describe how extremely happy we are with work W&B construction did to our home! We recently started a kitchen remodel and floor tile project in our home. We originally did only a search for tile installation as we have family friends who do remodeling projects and thought they would be helping us with our kitchen remodel. We promptly got a response from Gabriel to our request for tile installation and set up a meeting with him and his crew the very next day. Before meeting with him we read the numerous reviews left by very satisfied clients and decided when meeting with him to also inquire getting an estimate on the construction and remodel of our kitchen as well as the tile installation. After meeting with Gabriel and his crew and expressing our visions for our new kitchen, we felt very confident that once we received the estimate from him that we would be hiring them. Gabriel promptly emailed us an estimate that same day and we decided to go with them. They started demolition the next Tuesday! Everyday it was so nice to come home and see all the progress they made. From start to finish it took 2 1/2 weeks for them to complete everything from demolition to rebuilding and tile installation. Gabriel and his crew are very professional and hard working!Gabriel and his team took our visions and made them better than we could have ever expected! We would and will recommend W&B Villa Construction to anyone looking to have any project to their home done!

Great service. Prompt, thorough, ethical, and explains exactly what the job entails. Richard made it very easy to understand all options, and his estimate/cost was very reasonable. He takes pride in his work, and does not cut corners. It was a pleasure doing business with him, and I look forward to doing business again in the near future. I highly recommend him.

"We're very happy to have found Leo and Nery for interior projects! In just three days they remodeled two large hallway closets, including demolition of a wall, installation of new doors and moldings, custom shelving, sanding, and painting. They were always punctual, informative, transparent about prices and cost of materials, and generally a pleasure to work with. We plan to hire Leo for another project soon."

Donde came for a free estimate to create a power outlet behind my TV. His price was fair and I decided to go ahead with the job right then and there. He did an amazing job, and was able to complete everything quickly without any problems. Very professional and a down to earth guy. Cleaned up the work area after he was done. We are waiting for an estimate from him on some other electrical work my wife and I were thinking about. Hope to do business with him again....Highly Recommend!! A+

I have several rental properties in the Pompano Beach area as well as my own home that all needed extensive work at one time or another. I have used other companies in the past with a moderate degree of satisfaction. Some years ago I hired Jordan and Robert with All Around Builder to do some renovation work on one of my townhouses and I couldn't have made a wiser choice. Jordan and Robert are true professional. All of their staff are prompt, courteous, and are excellent craftsmen. The prices they charge for their services are very reasonable and comparable to other bids. I feel blessed to have found such a reliable and top shelf construction company and will continue to use them for all of my remodeling/construction needs

As the initial project has wrapped up, there were a number of small details which left me a bit underwhelmed. - The cleanliness and care of Josh's crew was a concern as items surrounding the construction area were not well protected and required more cleanup/repair than I anticipated having to do, especially considering they were hired to repair my home. Some examples: paint removal from surrounding surfaces, spot cleaning tracked-in grease, patching "banged" trim from appliance relocating, replacing warped bathroom door - Missed details like insufficient paint coverage in areas, missing grout joints, not planning the order of the installation caused some areas to be left unpolished or unfinished entirely. - Despite some personal requests and upgrades, the final cost ended up being 30% more. I know to expect some margin of error for surprises. The original estimate was $4572.50 and the final cost was $6547.19. Overall, they completed the job and it's functional. I did not complain or haggle over additional expenses and paid as agreed. The transaction was average. I might consider using them again for projects where being "rough around the edges" is acceptable and mentally add extra margin for error in estimate price.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.  

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.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
