Eric was very professional and prompt with communications. He was able to resolve some issues with our project. When his supplier bid the materials wrong, he paid the difference because he didn’t want to break his word to me, even after I offered to pay the difference. As far as I am concerned this is the only contractor I would bother with on this site. A man who keeps his word is worth doing business with. This is a legitimate review, written by a real customer. He built my fence, made it look great, communicated any issues with me, and again, kept his word, I honestly would have paid more to work with him, but he was my lowest bid.

Rex was an amazing artist! I say artist because the work he did on my house was prestigious and meticulous. I will use him for future projects! As a matter of fact, he will be building a walk in closet for my bed room the end of this month.

We are a small non-profit with a tight budget. Rick and Jake did a wonderful job remodeling our building. We literally gutted a good portion of the building, built new walls and rooms, re-routed lights and fans, installed new plumbing and countertop, installed new vinyl flooring, and painted. I would highly recommend Rocky Mountain Home Repair & Remodel.

One unexpected, and unfortunate, bonus was Bob's ability to deal with an unhappy neighbor while I was away. The issues were not Bob's problem, but he dealt with the neighbor and resolved them with professionalism.

Matt did an excellent job. I felt like he cared much more about building a good fence than making a profit.

Mark Adams, BUILD-IT-USA, did nothing less than a remarkable job, he is a perfectionist. His craftsmanship and attention to detail was evident throughout the project. I had very little knowledge about construction and found that I could trust Mark to do the job right the first time for the agreed upon cost while he supervised the sub-contractors insuring their work met his standard. Trust is HUGE to me. The end product is a solid, straight building from the ground up. I highly recommend BUILD-IT-USA for any construction project you have.

With great pleasure, I have the opportunity to say a few words about how pleased my wife and I are with Tom Tremethick's work. The finished product Tom produced for us is absolutely beautiful...perfect...so much more that we imagined. Our project consisted of building, finishing and installing bookcases, entertainment center and cabinetry on a 20 ft. long wall. As an architectural consultant for 37 years, I have worked with hundreds of contractors and subcontractors...and Tom/Tremethick Woodworks is at the top of the list of the best with whom I have ever worked. All the superlatives pertain to Tom and his company...professional, knowledgeable, reasonable, fair, honest, punctual, neat, meticulous. Tremethick Woodworks should be your first call on your next cabinetry, casework, millwork or custom furniture project. Larry & Linda Locuson Garden City, ID

      We hired Clint Shippy to build our 2100 sq. Foot home. His craftsmenship is excellent. The subs were on the job, all the time, plus they were some of the best subs that he hired to work on our home. He made sure everything went smoothly for us. When the sheet rock crew came in, one of the men told me they were always happy to follow up a Shippy Construction framing, for it was a guarantee that the framing would be square. He is punctual and a perfectionist in his work, trying to please his customers at all times. We would certainly like to pass this information on to anyone considering hiring Shippy Construction, for you will certainly be pleased.

      Gary Newkirk did an amazing job installing and staining my fence. Throughout the project I also needed my sprinklers realigned and Gary was able to do that for me, so I didn't have to hire another person to fix it. Gary and his co-worker Robert were true gentlemen in explaining and advising me throughout the entire process of building a new fence. Gary made sure he went the extra mile in guaranteeing understanding of materials and what would be best for my fence and future wear and tear. There was very little I had to do in getting through this project because Gary spent time going to different places to price materials and got me the better deals for better materials to ensure a very nice fence for my yard. Gary is an honest and hard working individual who painstakingly adjusting or redoing anything that didn't look right and always kept me in the loop when he needed to make adjustments, came across concerns, or even dealing with my next door neighbors. I felt he gave me a great deal for all the time and work he had put into my fence. Gary, makes sure in helping you understand what is needed to maintain his work and he informed me if there is anything I feel is not working or needs attention to my fence he'll be glad to come back and take care of it for me. My fence looks beautiful and I would certainly ask Gary to come back in the future to do other projects for me.

        I'm a real estate agent and property investor with over 13 years of experience. Recently I had a project that I was able to split off 2 lots from a parcel and I needed custom duplexes designed for each lot. I've worked with Matt on a couple other large remodels ($100k+) in the past on which he did a wonderful job, so he was the first person I called for this job. He was quick, professional, and came up with several ideas and suggestions that were a great blend of cost efficiency and space functionality for both duplexes. He also helped with the overall site design and lot sizing, which maximized the size of the duplexes, the expected rental rates, and overall ROI. He was quick to respond to phone calls and email requests, and it made my whole experience wonderful. I highly recommend Matt and am very impressed with his work.

        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.  

        How do architects work?

        Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

        When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

        How do architects charge for their services?

        According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.

        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.

        What do general contractors charge?

        If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

        • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
        • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
        • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
        • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
