Excellent ! Excellent ! Excellent ! You will never use another plumber once you've used Herb. He was patient , on time, friendly, and finished the job ! My initial request was for a new toilet valve to be installed , as with plumbing sometimes and houses built before 1990 we had many surprises along the way. Herb was the consumate professional . He worked so hard in the rain ... In the dark ... And never complained once ! He's my hero😀 I really don't have words to express my gratitude for Herbs hard work, dedication and pure tenacity ! On top of all that he's a 100% Nice Guy! Please do yourself a favor and call this guy ... You will not regret it.

Marcelo from the initial estimate visit was very professional and explained indept what he would do. He also educated my husband and I on the paint products and pointed out things on our property we did not even see. He did an excellent job and he also saved us a lot of money by painting the Windows instead of us installing new ones. Our house looks like it was just built. I highly recommend Marcelo. He is a honest,reliable person. He's prices are the best in town and he gets the job down very fast. He cleans up after and leaves his work area very clean.

What can I say...this all started with just replacing our floors in a home from 1964 we purchased and turned into a complete interior renovation where literally every surface was redone except for the windows. We decided to expand our project little by little asking more and more questions and Gabriel was right on top of it helping us to make easy decisions. In the end, essentially redoing the whole house removing all traces of the 60's was on tap for before we moved in. Now that it is done, I can say Gabriel and crew successfully turned an old dated house into a gorgeous new space and he and crew are the best crew in the world in my opinion. Not only Gabriel but ALL of his crew have gone out of their way to make sure we were happy and to make sure the job is done right. Gabriel is incredibly trustworthy as others have stated and his crew feel like family to my wife and I at this point. Our project took around 3.5 months including all permits from the city and everything is up to code. That is a VERY fast turnaround considering the scope of work involved...just waiting for permits took 3 weeks out of that project time alone. Basically, these guys were flying the whole time doing great work across the board and we are very happy customers. If you're reading this know that Gabriel and his crew and Luis with Conquer Builders (the General Contractor) are responsive, honest, proud, ethical, hardworking people who will do what needs to be done to make you happy. As expected with a project of this scope, surprises came up and there was never a moment where all hope or control was lost - there was always a plan to push on through and get it done, again, at breakneck pace. I could not recommend W&B, Gabriel, his crew or Luis @ Conquer Builders high enough. It is and has been a pleasure to work with them and we will absolutely be using them in the future. Internet reviews are often shady because you know their friends and family probably write bogus reviews and try to make them seem like they're something they are not but these guys are the real deal. You have zero worries hiring this company; I am not a family member writing this to boost their ratings, I am a very happy customer whose home is listed in the photos. We have cats and with every room being worked on, it was a HUGE concern of ours that they did not get out..Gabriel and crew respected the "safe room" boundaries and worked around it. If they needed to get in that room, they would let me know and I could come by and move the cats to another room so they could work. Most contractors do not care and will do whatever they want and not pay attention and listen to the homeowners...not these guys! Thank you for building our sofl paradise! Now we can unpack! :)

Roberto did excellent work and I am so glad to have found a knowledgeable and trusty handyman for future projects! He spent a whole day at my house installing 3 light fixtures, installing new blinds for several windows, putting up shelves, and putting together and installing a complicated new sink faucet. He worked very efficiently but took his time to do the job right, going above and beyond to make sure things worked/looked properly. Would highly recommend Roberto!

First, Jhon was very competitive in his price, accommodating to my schedule, and far exceeded what I thought the ceiling could be. I enjoyed working with Jhon and his team. By far exceeded my expectations. I had a house was smoke damaged from years of cigarette smoke. Jhon was able to remove the popcorn ceiling, fix the weak spots in the house, skim coat the ceiling and painted. The house smells new, looks incredible, and I was able to hang ceiling fans. Jhon was very professional, made certain to remove his waste and clean at the end of each visit. I could not have imagined a better contractor to work with. This is going to be my residence for at least ten years, and Jhon was instrumental in making my house into a home for my family. Thank you to Jhon and his team. I'm glad everyday I come home. I will hire you again for the next project.

I contracted Richard to paint our house, but we realized that the roof was damage so a simple paint work became a big a complicated repair. He did an amazing work with our roof and house paint, intact he continued working with our house entrance installing tiles and and door frame... I complete recommend Richard if you are looking for a honest an hard worker contractor. I hope we can continue working other house projects with him.

Buying a home out of state can be nerve racking when you are not able to oversee something yourself. Joey teamed up with our realtor for the home inspection. Judging from the very detailed report that I received the evening of the inspection, I can only imagine how methodical and thorough that Joey was. After viewing the report with pictures of everything, followed up by a full summary of what needed to be addressed, I felt like I was there for the inspection. I would highly recommend Joey Berta for any home inspection!!! Thanks Joey!!

Came out same day to do a job and at a very fair price. My condo building doesn't allow after hours work and we was very accommodating parking down street and letting me drive him in. It was even pouring rain out and he braved the rain to run to his truck. Id recommend!

We contacted GoPro Builders late one afternoon after having dealt with problems with our water heater for quite a while. The next morning someone came to assess the situation. We really didn't know what our best choice would be to take care of the problem, replace the tank or put in a tankless unit. We were given clear information about the benefits and drawbacks with our choices. The work involved was clearly described and a price was given with everything itemized. We decided to go with the tankless and were lucky enough to get an appointment for the next day. The technicians came when they said they would and completed the work quickly and cleanly. For us, it was a relief from the problems we had been dealing with. We would very highly recommend GoPro Builders again! Great job

Eco restoration installed flooring into my brand new house. One of the most important things in a home renovation, if not the most important thing, is communication between yourself and the contractor. Eco Restoration had amazing communication the entire time. I will definitely consider Eco Restoration for my next home project!

Onsite Project Solutions turned a house into "our home" for my son and I. All rooms were painted, all new baseboards, trim and interior doors were installed, doors were relocated, new built in closet systems installed and the BEST part is my new whole home concrete floor that reminds me of the beach! That was all completed Spring of 2015 and now they are back to create a very modern, custom concrete bathroom!

I wasn't sure what to expect to be completely honest. It was my first attempt at hiring a cleaner through this application. I couldn't be happier, my house is in pristine condition. The place was a mess initially my family came into town and we all partied and went to the beach. I handed then the keys took off for a few hours and came back to a new home. I would highly reccomend these two to anyone. Excellent job.

Hiring Laurence for our project was the BEST decision ever, he truly exceeded my expectations. It was a smooth journey from the beginning. Laurence responded to all of my emails in a very timely manner in a very professional way. We converted a 3/2 house into a 4/2 building an extra bedroom by using existing sqf., painted the entire interior of the house and had him assemble all new furniture items, hang artwork, place rugs and hang drapery. Before we started, he send me a detailed schedule, so I knew what was happening every single day. He showed up on time (always), and tidied up the house every day by 5pm, so when I came home with my son, there was no tools, screws, etc lying around and the mess was kept to a bare minimum. When unforeseen things came up, Laurence always addressed them right away and came up with a solution. He worked with a great team and we are so happy with the results. I will recommend him to anyone looking for a GC and I know we will reach out to him for any projects we might have in the future.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
