My husband and I would like to thank AVM Construction for the wonderful work done over the past weekend. We are pleased with the service and work experience from them.

Bruce and his crew were great to work with during our basement remodel. We shared our vision and he helped us to make it happen within our budget. He was upfront and honest about the costs that were incurred along the way and gave us lots of options/directions to go at different price points so we could make an informed decision. During the construction process, the crew worked diligently to get the work done. They sent daily updates with photos about what was accomplished each day and were always available to answer questions. Whenever we would call, text, or email, we heard back in a reasonable amount of time with the details we needed. At one point, we shared a concern about something and Bruce made sure that it was remedied to our liking without hesitation. It was so evident that he takes great pride in his work and looks to ensure his customers are 100% satisfied. Since moving to the area we have worked with several local "handymen" and Genesis may have just earned the title of our new "go to guy!" Thank you!!!

James provided me with a replacement for my 110 foot driveway. He clearly explained how work would be performed and gave me a very fair price. He had the worked completed on schedule and responded to me very quickly when I had some questions. The construction team was efficient and the result excellent. I would certainly work with James/Chicago Pro again.

Tom was great. Sent his quote right away and was good about communicating start date and order of project. His quote for a bathroom was very fair and he provided all receipts for purchases. The project started out differently. Our water line from the water heater to the humidifier on our furnace broke the night before. I thought I may as well ask Tom to fix on his first day before calling a plumber and he happily repaired it quickly. He is very skilled and can do everything. He and his co-worker were very respectful and very clean. They even laid a tarp down in our garage when cutting tile. My wife likes things tidy and you really couldn't even tell they were there when we got home. In the middle of the project we decided to tile an entire wall and they had no issue with adding for another fair price. Tom also had great recommendations and photos for grout. He really wants to make sure his customer is happy. If you're looking for someone that is friendly, honest, does not cut corners and is very talented, I definitely recommend reaching out to Hercules Construction. Above and beyond experience with those guys.

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 used Andronic Construction for a marble tile backsplash installation and a complete redo of our bathroom shower including demo and reinstall of all the underlying materials including walls and concrete. From the very beginning, the communication, responsiveness, and transparency was above and beyond anyone else we’ve worked with. The work itself way exceeded our expectations. Our backsplash and shower are a work of art! They achieved perfect angles, clean lines, and exact precision which takes not only a high level of skill, but also a meticulous attention to detail. Brian and Jose are extremely trustworthy and punctual. We were given a stepwise schedule of what they would be doing each day so we knew how the job was coming along. For any materials we needed to buy, Brian provided detailed itemized lists to make it easy. They kept the work area clean and protected the rest of our home/floors very well. The price was very fair and at the end we received a spreadsheet of costs as well as itemized receipts. They were respectful, kind, and truly a pleasure to work with. We trust them for any construction/remodeling work and highly recommend them to friends and family. We hope to use their skill again in the future.

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.
