Rising Construction is the best, I had some serious issues during a rehab property and they saved me from being seriously over charged. As a woman, and not really knowing all the language it's not always easy to know what I really need. They saved me from purchasing a new HVAC unit, which saved me thousands, they also told me exactly what I needed to do my plumbing, I gave them the money they brought me back the receipts, and they did an amazing job, they were even were able to pull some permits I needed. They really did it all for me. I'm not made of money and they were patient with me , They worked with my budget, and did what I could afford and the tenants been there for months no complaints. So please support hard working Good People!

I had a great experience with Marek Wojciech Construction. Marek and Gracie were prompt, courteous, and professional. They went above and beyond for my bathroom upgrade. I am selling my house and wanted to make the bathroom look more presentable to potential buyers. I have already found another project for them and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I hired Jeff after a home inspection while selling my home. I needed to fix a few things I didn't even know needed fixing. This included changing the main water valve under the house to working in the attic venting the bathroom fan. I also had some exterior eaves that need replacement. Jeff know how to handle all the jobs. He did a great job addressing everything. He is very knowledgeable when I comes to home construction. I plan on calling Jeff when I move to my new home for any work needed.

McDonald Construction did a beautiful job replacing our sidewalks and repairing an old coal chute on our foundation. I was immediately impressed by McDonald Construction when they responded within an hour to my request for a quote and came over the same day to look at the job and give me an estimate - and they started the job when they said they would. McDonald Construction's prices are extremely reasonable and all of the workers are very professional and courteous. I would definitely recommend this company.

I called Quality Way Roofing & Construction to have the flashing on my roof repaired. They came out the next day to give me an estimate and started the work two days later. They were very knowledgeable and detail orient in explaining how the repairs would be completed. All questions and concerns were address. I had my flashing repair and aluminum coating put on my roof. There has been a few storms in this area and I have no more leaks thanks Tommy and Tony at Quality Way Roofing! They did such a great job on my roof I referred them to my parents to have their brick retainer wall repair and tuck pointing on their front porch. They did a fantastic job!

I hired HGR Construction Services, Joel Sevilla by the recommendation of my heating and air conditioning contractor. I hired him for an insurance claim for hail damage to my aluminum siding, he worked with the insurance adjuster for almost 2 months to get me the most that he could from the insurance company. They ended up paying for partial of the siding that was damaged but more than what they first offered because Joel brought to their attention many things they had missed. Instead of replacing the siding with aluminum again I upgraded to vinyl and paid the difference of the upgrade. I also had him install all 15 new windows that were well over due to be replaced. Joel is very easy to work with the crews that came to do the work were very professional and thorough. Any problems that arose were taken care of immediately and professionally. I plan on having HGR Construction Services, Joel Sevilla re-roof my house this coming spring. I would recommend Joel 100%.

We recently had a fence put up by the guys at Jates construction and couldn't be happier with the results. They gave us everything we hoped for and even custom-fit our mailbox and added some special touches. They were done ahead of schedule and always available for questions or concerns. We will definitely be hiring Jates for any future projects!

Exceptional people to do business with. I plan to hire them again for future projects and highly recommend Precision Remodeling. I have had both neighbors and friends mention the nice work we had done (deck remodeling and expansion) which is a reflection of their craftsmanship. Even the Building Dept. at City Hall commented on how organized and prepared Precision Remodeling was in filing required plans and having their construction work accomplished "pass" every inspection stage during the process. Happy I hired them.

Ryan and his dad worked on my kitchen in October of 2017. I found them on home advisor and after reading the positive reviews set up time for Ryan to come for a consultation. From the initial meeting I knew they were true professionals that knew what they were doing. Ryan was able to draw me my dream kitchen…didn’t think I would be able to get an island and Ryan said….sure you can…we can make it happen. He walked me through selecting the perfect cabinets and was always willing to give his professional advice to make sure all would turn out ok. They showed up every morning on time…was considerate of my home and working environment, they worked well with the other contractors and stayed on top of all the details. If extra work was needed…even on the weekends they were there. As with any large project there may be some surprises…we only had a few that were not major and they worked through them with their expertise and amazing carpentry skills. Cannot tell you how overwhelmed with Joy we were with the final outcome of our kitchen. We absolutely LOVE it. We were on a tight time line to be finished by Thanksgiving and we made it…with the exception of the back splash which was contracted out through someone else. I found a temporary fix for that and was able to host our first Thanksgiving in our new home with our new BEAUTIFUL kitchen. I am grateful for Ryan and his dad for taking such pride in their work and delivering on their promise to us.

Chris completely overhauled both our upstairs bathrooms. We live in a home that was built in 1978, so the powder blue toilets had to go. We were able to narrow down our taste for each bathroom and sit down with Chris to talk about design/price. Not only was he quite accomadating with the design, he was excited to take on the project and had his own input along the way. Chris is very educated on construction, what works, what wouldn't and his entire team of guys are stand up people. You can tell his occupation is his vocation, not just a job. Each job is done with personal attention and detail. We have grown to call him our friend and feel lucky to have landed such a great contractor. We highly recommend him and his company for any renovation around the house! Donna Steiner-Naperville, IL

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.  

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 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.

What is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
