From my first contact, Bert was professional, available, knowledgeable, and honest -four very difficult qualities to find in any service industry. I am a detail person who has some experience in construction and Bert was patient for all of my questions. I added some particulars to be reviewed at the property; Bert was happy to do so. Bert's attention to every aspect of a property during a pre-purchase inspection is superb. I live in PA right now and if I need additional inspections later, I'll be returning to Bert.

Over 9 days, George did an amazing job in doing a major facelift to the exterior of our house. Replacing rotted word, power washing, painting, and much more. George did everything asked of him, very efficiently, and with good quality. I have met a good natured person that I can call a friend. My wife and I are highly satisfied, would recommend George and will contact him in the New Year for additional project work.

It's a pleasure having Jim do work for us. He's polite, punctual and does a great job. We can always depend on him to get the work done in the time he says it will take. When he's finished he leaves everything as clean as it was before he started. If there's a better way to do the work, Jim will think of it. His prices are always very reasonable. He has done many jobs for us, including repairing a ceiling that had been badly damaged from a major leak. He also disassembled a defective 15 foot built in wall unit, sanded, repainted and reinstalled it. It looks better than it did when it was new! While other contractors told us the whole unit had to be replaced, Jim found a better, less expensive way to fix it.

Emmanuel has completed several complex jobs for me, including Tile, Door installation, Construction, Plumbing. He is PHENOMENAL! Not only is he Trustworthy and Fair in price, but his work is IMMACULATE! I am a hardworking, single woman, homeowner, who has dealt with my share of shysters, so I am always cautious. Manuel is a GOD-SEND! He is MULTI-TALENTED, and believe me, he's made miracles happen, when I thought my project needs were impossible. He has a way of making things happen. He envisions Solutions and how to get from Beginning-End. Works fast and efficient. Comes when he says he will, doesn't stop until the job is through and completes on time, often ahead of schedule. I cannot sing his Praises enough. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :-)

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.

I would highly recommend Phoenix Electrical & Mechanical Contractors! They installed a whole house generator for my dad. When the gas company flaked, Phoenix Electrical stepped in when they didn’t have to and solved the problem. They are professional, honest, they clean up after themselves, and the quality of work they provide is superior to anything I have seen lately.

Mary was very helpful with design tips for my home. I was trying to merge two full household of furniture and decor into one home, and she gave me great ideas. I'm going to be using them for additional remodel work as well. I liked that the designer and contractor work together. Thanks!

      I had them rebuild my ac closet and replace the front door. They also as a courtesy looked at home and gave me recommendations and looked at other issue I am concerned about. They were professional and completed job with no problems. Everything is still good and I would use the. Again and have recommended them to my neighbor

      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.  

      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.

      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.
