Gracie helped with the estimate & appointment process, and Marek came over in a couple of days to perform the work. The job is wonderfully complete and Marek was very polite and friendly! I plan on asking him to put in new showers and floor in two bathrooms now.

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.

We needed to remodel a bathroom, which had not been touched in 35 years and included a leaky toilet leading to a damaged floor. We sought bids on Home Advisor. Two independent contractors responded in addition to Sears. I met with each to describe the project’s goals, namely 1) to repair the damaged floor, 2) to ensure no further leaks from any pipes or the toilet, and 3) to remodel and update the shower, vanity, floor tile and walls. We were really impressed with Bruce Filipiak of Genesis Construction from the very first meeting. It was clear that he understood the scope of the project and had the experience to do the work, while cautioning that the extent of the exact damage was unknown until they floor could be removed. We met with Bruce at least twice more BEFORE we signed any papers – he was willing to advise us as we delved into the details of designing our new bathroom. After resolving all initial issues we signed the contract with Bruce and looked forward to getting started. We expanded the scope of the project a few times on our own and a couple times on Bruce’s advice. For example, we decided that we also wanted to replace an unrelated exterior door and Bruce accommodated that request. We also decided we wanted a built in the wall shelf in the shower, and again Bruce told us he could do it. Bruce agreed to receive the shipment from Menards at our house. Bruce advised us on the potential additional costs when necessary. He found a couple electrical wiring issues that he fixed as well Once the job was started, Genesis Construction worked clean. The downstairs floor path was taped down to protect it, plastic sheeting was put up to minimize dust spread, and the stairway carpet was covered during the workday. Once the bathroom floor was removed Bruce let us know what damage had to be repaired and preceded to fix it. Everyday we marveled at the progress. They started when they said they would and the project finished in a reasonable time. It looks beautiful! When we sat down to settle up at the end of the job, Bruce produced receipts for everything purchased to accomplish the job. We are very happy with not only the work Genesis Construction performed, but also the way he helped us through the process, and letting us know what decisions and choices we needed to make. We definitely recommend Genesis Construction and Bruce Filipiak.

We wish that we found Chwalek construction earlier! We had the house painted with another contractor, it was not a pleasant experience, had to terminate the contract, then we found Chwalek. I told Jacob that we really needed someone to start immediately. From the 1st communication till the work done, it only took less than a week. Amazing! Not only Chwalek construction is extremely efficient, but also their professionalism, punctuality and work quality are very impressive. We are pleased to have them complete the projects. Will definitely use them in the future and highly recommend them.

I hired Lyndell to install a shower surround kit in my master bathroom and ended up hiring him to do so much more! He was able to repair some pesky woodpecker damage on my chimney chase. He noticed some loose cedar siding and repaired that as well. The chimney looks great and is better than the original construction. He came in under budget and was very thorough with his work. Couldn't be happier. The shower kit and door kit installation went just a smoothly. Lyndell performed a very "clean demolition, made some structural repairs and installed the shower kit with a high level of craftsmanship and care for my home. The shower surround also came in under budget and looks (and works) great! I'm very pleased with the work he performed at my house. Side note: take the time to get to know Lyndell...he is capable of more than you think. His background is amazing and his work ethic is refreshing. I'm planning on hiring Lyndell for future projects at my new home.

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%.

I would highly recommend Star Construct Inc for any and all of your Construction needs. It was a smooth process from start to finish. Scheduling was quick and Ady was very knowledgeable. The 5 man crew he send out was amazing. They showed me each step of the process they were completing along the way. When they were finished,you couldn't even tell there had been a house burned 4 weeks ago. I would,without any reservations, highly recommend Star Construct Inc to everyone,including my friends and family.

Jates construction were extremely professional. They gave me a detail bid on my job in which nobody else did for me. There communication before, during and at completion was excellent. I never had to wait for a response to my questions. They introduced me to the guys that would be doing my job so i was aware of who was in my home. The work quality was great down to the detail. Marco made sure to walk with me a couple of times throughout the project so we could align our thoughts and make sure I was happy with the progress. I am thrilled with my kitchen backsplash and custom Master bathroom!!!!!!

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.

    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.
