TLDR: I cannot say enough positive things about Clearwater Construction as a company or about every single member of the team assigned to my recent bathroom remodel. From the quality of work to customer relations these guys exceeded every expectation. The whole story: My grandfather, the most import person in my life, recently underwent extensive surgery for various cancers. After flying home to visit him following one such surgery, it became glaringly obvious that his small carpeted 1930’s bathroom with its decrepit 3x3 shower and ancient round toilet had become too difficult for him to maneuver. Having set aside a little money, I decided I would put out a request on a number of construction servicing sites to have his whole bathroom remodeled. I received several responses straight away, the most promising of which came from Thumbtack. Living a few states away I didn’t have the luxury of vetting the potential contractors in person, but of all the responses I received the one from Brent at Clearwater stood most prominent. His initial emails were prompt and throughout and he offered to be out at my grandpa’s house the next day to do a free estimate. After spending several hours measuring and go over the prospective remodel with my grandpa, Brent shot me an itemized quote taking large considerations for my modest budget and my grandfather’s health and safety needs. Upon reviewing the extensive quote and getting the “character check” thumbs up from my grandpa, I made the easy choice to go with Clearwater. Due to a fortune opening in their construction schedule Brent was able to slot my project in almost immediately. Unfortunately, shortly into the teardown phase it was revealed that the ancient plumbing, among other things, had all but rusted through causing significant structural damage to the main floor support beams and rotting out most of the subfloor. Once again I was provided with a well-itemized quote for the additional repairs and the remodel proceeded without a hitch. To help me track workflow, invoices and maintain general communication Jeff, one of the owners, got me set up with Buildertrend access for the remainder of the project. Over the course of the next several weeks, the Clearwater crew assigned to my project did an amazing job of providing me with photos and progress updates for every single phase of construction. Besides being able to see the level of quality that went into each step of the remodel via Buildertrend, I also received weekly phone updates from my grandpa talking about what outstanding workers and people Bryan, Andrew, and the rest of the crew were. Now that the project is all wrapped up I’m absolutely certain I couldn’t have selected a better company for the job. From start to finish every person at Clearwater seemed to take a personal vested interest in my project and my grandfather’s wellbeing. The fit and finish of the final product were well above what I expected for the price-point and the customer service along the way was second to none.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
