After purchasing a home with a yard that had been neglected, we contacted James to see how he could help. He arrived promptly at the agreed upon time, and walked through the yard and home giving suggestions along the way. Two days later, James returned and thoroughly cleaned up the area and took down two dead trees. During both of our interactions, he was polite and easy to communicate with. We will be having James return over the next few months enhance our curb appeal. We highly recommend hiring James for any home project!

We had our house interior painted. Mike contacted us immediately to stop by and look at what we wanted done. As promised he sent me a quote that same evening. We agreed to go with him. He suggested we get a Pod as we have a lot of furniture and said his crew would move the furniture out to it. Mike even met us at Home Depot to get our paint choices. They started when he said they would and was prompt every day. They were very meticulous and went over and beyond making sure everything was just right.

I’d really started to hate my 1920 Craftsman because it needed so much work and it was so hard to find quality contractors at reasonable prices. Tord and Jeff did an AMAZING job remodeling my bathroom and laundry room. They were punctual, they’re prices are great, and everything looks even better than I expected! I am so grateful to have found them! I will definitely be using T&J again for future projects in my home.

We hired Jeff to install a chandelier, a fan with light/remote, fix lighting issue in our bonus room & paint great room, hallway, as well as a bedroom plus trim up. A lot of work & the house looks great! Lights & fan work perfectly & the new color on walls looks beautiful. What I appreciated most about Jeff was that his is committed to a job well done - specifically with the paint work, he came back couple of times for touch ups & trim to ensure all looked great & we were happy with it. Much appreciated!

Noel did a fabulous job of helping us get some issues handled after we downsized from our large home to a townhouse. He removed some excess furniture from the new house and patio which we simply could not handle ourselves. He also replaced a light fixture in our closet that required an up to date fixture and code. He was thorough and helped us deal with things that required a knowledge of the appropriate fix. As a Baby Boomer needing smaller issues handled that were hard to get attention to handle, he was flexible and quick to respond to our need. We highly recommend him with your downsizing challenges.

I have had several homes painted over the years and am very fussy. Nestor's work is exceptional. He is very meticulous and extremely neat as if it was his own home. He will be at your home when scheduled and completes the job in a timely manner. I highly recommend him for painting or other projects in your home. He is very talented and knowledgeable in many areas. He did our guest bathroom remodel which was great!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. I submitted a request and I received a very quick response. Very professional and over the top quality services. COPI offers a variety of services. It is basically a one stop shop and the great thing about the company is if you need more than one service they will bundle the services and offer a great discount. Their prices are very fair and they are so friendly and professional. Based on their services, I am now committed to their on-going cleaning services because they went above and beyond. They also did extraordinary service grouting and sealing my kitchen tile and caulking my bathroom. I will use their service for all of my renovation needs and future projects also. I highly, highly recommend COPI and their services and I will continue to use them in the future for all of my home needs.

We have had Brian Messman of Elegant Home Improvements do several home projects for us. They included painting, woodworking, and dry wall repair and replacement. The jobs were all done to the highest degree of professionalism and at a reasonable price. He and his help showed up as planned, were very respectful of our home and furnishings and cleaned up thoroughly. It was a real pleasure to have him fix our home and we recommend him highly for any job. James & Jie Battista Sun City , SC

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
