This company did an excellent job! Showed up on time and when he said he would. Was very courteous and professional. Did such a great job on my tile backsplash that I also hired him to install my flooring. I will use him again for future projects. I was very pleased overall!

We are very happy with our new roof and the work of the team at Summit Construction. Its owner, Chad Grigsby, was very professional, personable, and particular in the job. He was prompt and kept his word. The roofers are company employees (not contracted) and worked in really awful weather—rain, snow, hail, sleet, freezing temperatures; Chad was on-site daily and often got on the roof to help out. We are also pleased with the care taken to prevent water damage as the roof was stripped and the care taken to prevent plant damage in our landscaping. We would certainly recommend Chad Grigsby and the crew at Summit Construction for your roofing needs.

Our job wasn't large, but it required some construction and engineering expertise. We needed to shore up a 17' long shelf on the front of our house upon which three large window boxes are set. Because it wasn't a major (big dollar) project, Daniel was the only Thumbtack contractor who was willing to take on the job. He came out to our house twice to inspect the window box shelf, identify the problem and the solution, and then came back out again to do the work. This involved removing the shelf, affixing a support board under the shelf, and reinstalling the support beams and the shelf itself. He also repainted the shelf, tightened up the window boxes, and repainted the boxes. He contacted me with a few questions along the way as questions arose. All of this was done promptly, professionally, and at a reasonable cost. We'd highly recommend Daniel for any home improvement project, especially one requiring some level of construction engineering expertise.

AJ Construction is very reliable and fast to respond. Alan met with me the same day I posted in Thumbtack to give me a quote on the projects I needed done. Two of the projects were very time sensitive for the safety of my family and he quickly took care of them. I will now be a loyal customer and use him often.

Phillip's integrity is above reproach. His attention to detail and unwavering dedication puts him above all the other painters I've dealt with in the Ft. Wayne area. The next time I have a project in the Ft. Wayne area you can be sure that I will hire Phillip.--Bob Enger, Project Superintendent, Horizon Retail Construction

Jeremy Sparks has done drywall work for me - he's good and FAST! He did a raised bed garden box - he loves to work with the customer on the design ideas. For friends, he did some amazing landscaping work. So, ask him about whatever you need - not just the big remodeling or construction jobs.

I needed the subfloor floor replaced in my 2 bathrooms, also some electrical work done. Anthony came and gave an estimate.His prices were more then fair. He was one time and very polite. He started work quickly and worked fast. He kept to his estimate to the best of his ability (the one bathroom was a bit more work.) He even made time to come back and check his work a few days later. I will definitely be using his company again.

Kyle from K&C Const. did a wonderful job for our remodel. We had new hardwood and ceramic floors installed. Kyle did an excellent job scheduling job, (actually they finished two day early), from ordering all the materials, to the finished product. My wife and I will definitely recommend this company to all our friends and relatives. Thank you Kyle and the hard working employees at K&C Const.

The job was to put a whole new roof on. They were here on time, started work right away and were finished in 5 1/2 hours. I have a big house and I was amazed. They cleaned up really well and I couldn't thank them enough. I don't think they could have been any better. I would recommend them to everyone.

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.
