David was a pleasure to work with. He came out the same day to quote the job, and the next morning he showed up on time and started working. We gave him a small timeline to get the work completed and he exceeded our expectations. He was very kind and worked within our budget, he even went above what he was suppose to do in order to complete the job. We will most certainly hire David again, and recommend him to others. Thank you again David for your help on this project.

CIH Design lead designer Shelly David has completed home building and complete home renovation projects for myself and three of my family members.  Her styles are always evolving to suit the needs and the climate and location of each of the projects.  My family's projects have ranged from a condo in Hong Kong, a ranch house on Maui, a villa on Kauai and a modern condo in Honolulu.  Her attention to detail is unsurpassed and her photorealistic renderings of every space are a perfect representation of the finished effect.  This alone has won her our business along with several of our colleagues. She brings a fun energy to the job and attends to our wishes with innovative designs that are unique to our varied personal tastes.  We look forward to working with CIH Design and Shelly on future projects.

Mario did a great job on all of our projects from installing cabinets and building a storage shed to drywall, painting, concrete leveling, and installing vinyl and hardwood flooring. He is punctual, conscientious, well-mannered, and friendly. His experience and attention to finish detail really shows by the quality work he produces. The best way to really know the truth of what a client thinks of a contractor is if they hire him again. And we already have hired Mario to continue working on our on-going remodeling projects. My mom even created a new project for Mario to do: build a small home for her two little dogs!

I would like to give my highest recommendation for Andrew Calma. I met Andrew about ten years ago when he was working for Consolidated Painting and they were painting a dementia care facility that I was building. When I needed to have my house painted I contacted the manager of the painting company to see if they could help me. Because they did not do residential projects he referred me to Andrew to do the job as a side project. Since then, Andrew has painted the exterior of my house two times and painted the interior once. He also did quite a bit of extra work to remove a lot of rusty nails and such that have deteriorated over the last 14 years. Andrew is honest, dependable, knowledgeable and hard working. My wife and I have two young girls. I trust Andrew and his crew to be in my house with my family when I'm not home and I trust him to work in my house when nobody is home. I have also found the other painters that assist Andrew to be courteous and professional. I have found Andrews prices to be very reasonable for the quality of work that is provided. I plan to continue to use him as long as he is providing this service. Andrew is a great resource.

We had asbestos removed from our ceiling. Odd Job's estimator and contractor, Andy, was very informative and helpful in discussing options and solutions for our ceiling needs. And during the project, Andy was meticulous in highlighting things that needed consideration, what they were doing about it and why, and proposed other options to insure we were pleased with their work. In summary, we are very pleased with the outcome and appreciative of Andy's integrity! Highly recommend Andy, Justin and Chris!

The guys from Lotus Construction were friendly, polite and explained things very clearly where needed. Work was not necessarily as fast as some other contractors I’ve dealt with but the quality of work and process was very worth it.

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.
