Stayed home from work as I expected him. Calls me 30 mins to an hour before expected arrival and says he can’t come until next week. Need this to be done ASAP and now have to start all over with new contractors. Not happy primarily because I stayed home from work to accommodate his arrival.

We had a great experience! We needed a variety of odds and ends done around the house including lighting, fixing toilets issues, building a patio set and gas fire pit. We will use him again for building our deck.

I hired William to repaint almost all of the interior of my house to include the ceilings. The job took longer than expected however the end result was well worth the wait. He was very easy to work with and his pricing was very reasonable.

We had a very positive experience from start to finish. Alumni Builders, Dan and his staff were very pleasant to work with. They listened and were very understanding to our needs. Dan worked very closely with us to explain the whole process, listened to our desires, provided needed feedback and made our first home addition build less stressful. He was involved in all aspects of the project to make sure our desired vision became reality. Alumni Builders has a very great team of professionals. We would use/recommend them for any future projects. Thank you again for all your hard work and making our dream house. Anderson family.

Roman created a set of drawings for an addition of an exterior walk-up basement entry to my home. He did a great job covering all the details, making suggestions that I had not considered , and came up with a finished set of design drawings in short order. Thanks Roman!

Chris designed our house and pole barn attachment. He has been readily available throughout the entire processes answering all our questions thoroughly. He has been patient with my husband and I as we tried to make mutual decisions. He has also been in contact with us during the building process. The house and pole barn aren't finished yet but I'm excited to see the final product.

We have a small house in Riverside. It is about 1,000 sf. It is a split level modern house built in the 1950's. We wanted an open plan concept with a cathedral ceiling. We removed wall to new ceiling, creating an upstairs loft. The project was completed in 2001.We have lived in it for 16 years! We love the plan and the cathedral ceiling 16' high. Our room is now open 20'x24', with new skylights above the living room. Arlene was a terrific help. We got our plans on time during the design phase, and got our permits without any new work or any changes to our design. We have enjoyed our redesigned home for the past 11 years and would definitely recommend Arlene to our friends! -Keller Jobe

john managed a rather large remodel for my Naperville home. we put an addition on, remodeled the kitchen adding cherry 42" cabinets, granite and Corian counters. other work moved doorways, added 2 large family room windows, moved a slider to the kitchen, and did a lot of drywall work. it also entailed moving our electrical service and reconfiguring the deck. In my opinion, the job could not have gone better, or could we have gotten a better result! John found kitchen space where there was none and added tremendous guidance to the planning and scheduling stages. I can't say enough positive about uor experience!

Steve Vasilion designed a major addition and remodeling of our home. The design transformed our relatively plain little 1940 ranch into a uniquely beautiful and livable house. Steve did an amazing job of creating a house design that is both attractive and functional while efficiently using space. At the same time it fits extremely well into the landscape of our property. Steve's service encompassed all aspects of the project from concept and design detailing, through the bidding process until the construction was complete. He listened carefully to what we wanted and created a design that transformed our house in ways that we could never have imagined. He then followed through the whole project to ensure that his vision was faithfully expected by the contractor. This service was not inexpensive but we definitely got what you paid for and more.

My husband and I just bought a house that required a lot of work and our family friend recommended Matt to help us remodel our new home. Matt is very knowledgable and professional with his work. He explained everything and answered all of our questions. We could not be happier with the high quality work he did at our house. Our kitchen and bar look amazing! We will definitely ask Matt to come back next year to work on our deck. For anyone who is considering remodeling their home, I highly recommend Matt.

      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.
