Gary did a fantastic job on our backsplash, was very reasonably priced, and was a pleasure to work with. If I was ever doing a home renovation project again Gary would be my first and only call.

Bart was a pleasure to work with. His professionalism and communication were excellent. As an out of state homeowner with a long term tenet and management company in place, he communicated effectively with all parties involved while keeping my best interests as the homeowner a priority. He was focused on the repairs while keeping costs in mind and offering suggestions and advice along the way. I would highly recommend Bart and intend to do business with him again in the future.

Late summer, 2016, I hired Jeff whose company is called Alliance Pro to do some small jobs around our house. When Hurricane Matthew struck, our house was severely damaged. I started to look for contractors who could handle the extensive work which would be required. Jeff informed me that before he moved to SC, he managed a large company which did remediation and renovation work following natural disasters. He had done a fine job with the small projects and seemed like a real nice guy to work with, so I decided to see what he could do. We were amazed at the range of things that Jeff did and how meticulous his workmanship was. He has done storm remediation, rebuilt walls and ceilings, painted, replaced windows, many of which were 90 pounds and 10-20 feet high, did brick and stucco work, did foundation repairs, fixed cracks in walls and repainted so they were undetectable. The list goes on and on. Jeff (Alliance Pro) has been a real pleasure to work with. Everyone will really miss Jeff’s friendly demeanor and sense of humor, especially the dog.

Being new to South Carolina we were at a loss to hire a contractor who could do several complicated jobs in our home. We tried several companies that turned out to be disastrous. Frustrated, we went to the local lumber yard begging for the name of someone who did impeccable work and was reasonably priced and we were given RFO Construction. After meeting Bob and discussing our projects we knew he had the knowledge and after the work was completed we were delighted with the outcome. We have recommended him to all our friends and neighbors who were also pleased with his work. We are grateful for having finally found a carpenter who we trust will do the very best job and has very competitive pricing.

I have enjoyed working with James Duncan of J.D. Duncan Construction, Inc., on three significant projects over a twelve year period. The first was a 1700 sq. ft. home addition, next was a contemporary re-design and re-model of a 40 year old living room, and most recently, was a complete tear-down and re-model of a kitchen and utility room after a broken water line caused damages requiring a re-build from the floor joists through and including the ceiling. In all instances, I have found his work to be superior, and at a reasonable price. It seems that Mr. Duncan always likes to leave me smiling after noticing his unexpected up-scale in detailed craftsmanship. I anticipate more re-modeling in the future, and I will offer the job to J.D. Duncan without even feeling the need to seek competitive bids.

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.

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.
