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!

Honestly, he was a lifesaver. He completely saved our grand opening. Our space needed immediate attention and he was there and made it amazing. He was so particular with detail that we are hiring him to do more work in our other gym. As far as we are concerned he will be our go-to guy for any construction needs!!

Mark was fantastic to work with. He responded quickly and was very easy to work with. He was very knowledgeable and professional and did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend him to others and will use him in the future for other projects. He put up our hurricane shutters for hurricane IRMA and he really knew how to deal with the difficult screws needed for our shutters. We were so happy he knew his stuff so our house could stay safe!

We were referred to Camilo and his company, Reliable Construction Group, by a close friend of ours. They did some work for him, and he was very pleased. Camilo performed for us a full condo remodeling in our 8th floor unit, facing the water in Pompano Beach Florida. They renovated two bathrooms and the kitchen for us. They did marvelous work while keeping us posted of all construction stages. Our job was fully permitted and they took care of all drawings and permitting in a timely matter. Will gladly recommend Camilo and his crew. Ron

We hired Daw Builders, Inc and we are impressed with the outstanding quality job they did in our major Home renovation. Jose Leonardo Parra and his team worked together to get our renovated house exactly right and on time. An outstanding solution to every problem we found was the key for a smooth construction process. Everyone at Daw Builders was a delight to deal with and Jose Leonardo Parra, Principal and General Contractor at Daw Builders, Inc. was always knowledgeable, pleasant and courteous. Daw Builders took what might have been a difficult project and turned it into a great experience for us. We couldn't be happier with the result. We highly recommend Daw Builders, Inc. to anyone for future projects. F. Suarez Miami, Florida

I'm a Realtor and had to hire Sam at Custom Homes Building & Remodeling to give us a second opinion on a complex construction matter. We were able to close on the property because of the detailed report give by him. Thank you for helping us grow our business.

I represent a condominium association and interviewed four contractors for major repairs to our roof. We went with Spartan Roofing and Construction and received a first class job and excellent value for money spent. The lead contractor on this job was Ignacio Escardon and he could not have been more professional, helpful, or conscientious. He was on site managing and working with trained workers during the entire job. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for quality roofing, or any construction project.

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.
