We hired Paul to remove a ceiling fan in our mater bedroom and install a chandelier. He was very prompt following my initial request via Thumbtack and worked with me to find a convenient time to complete the project. He was timely, efficient, and a very pleasant individual to work with. I am beginning a bathroom remodel and will need some assistance with modifying the current electrical work. Based on my previous experience with Paul, I plan to have him also complete this job. I highly recommend Paul Wright for residential electrical work.

John arrived on time and well prepared to work on my various house projects which included installing a new high (14ft) ceiling fan, changing a bathroom exhaust fan/light fixture, bathroom vanity light fixture, installing a new door, and actually building an outdoor litter box for my cats which connects into my home. I have asked several contracts to build the cat box, but none of them really could grasp the idea. John build a custom box with a trap door inside that allows excess litter to fall into for easy cleaning and improved sanitation for my cats. The litter box now sits in the garage and connects to the half bath inside my home. John and his associate were very knowledgable and friendly and did excellent work! Every project I had on my list was done that day ahead of schedule. I am very pleased with this experience and I plan to hire him again to work on other projects within my home. So great to finally find a great contractor who does quality work! See my pictures to view the cat litter box house and before and after photos.

I needed repair work for a roof "valley" and for flashing around a chimney on a '50s-style ranch house. Mr. Matlock was quick to respond through "Thumbtack" with an offer to come take a look and provide an estimate. He was punctual and kept in good touch with arrival time, etc. We took a look together and he identified and clearly explained what would need to be done. He promptly provided a detailed written estimate by email, and at my request, a similarly detailed estimate for a whole roof replacement. After crunching numbers, I opted for just the repair, which was quickly scheduled. Mr. Matlock and his crew of two arrived before 8 AM and promptly got to work. The valley repairs were a little more extensive than initially anticipated, and he showed me where fascia and joist had rotted, etc. and how he would repair those as well. I was impressed especially with the chimney work, which included building a "cricket" -- a little doghouse-shaped bump behind the chimney that diverts snow and water. They finished a bit after 6 PM that day, and cleaned up thoroughly. The following evening we had a heavy rain and I was pleased not to have leaks anymore. In summary: prompt, courteous, detail-oriented, great at communication; I recommend his firm.

We originally contacted Jason for cabinetry work in our kitchen, but in the end hired him to remodel our fireplace and built-in desk area. His attention to detail was superb and we appreciated his patience during the design decision process. Jason was always professional, and communicated with us often during what ended up being a 10 week project involving 2 subcontractors. Its obvious that Jason cares about his work.

I needed a storm door installed and he did an excellent job. My door frame was too shallow so he had to by extra materials and build out the frame a little. He did a fantastic job and work was high quality. He is very professional, friendly, and helpful! I would highly recommend him for any work that needs done!

Max did an excellent job at a very fair rate. He was right in the middle of the quotes I received, but offered peace of mind with explaining what his thoughts were and how he would complete the project of building my deck. He finished the deck in 2 days time as promised and was very easy to work with. I highly recommend Max.

John and his team build a fantastic two level enclosed patio with a built in grill, and sink. It also has a water fountain and gas bonfire. John designed the patio and the landscaping surrounding it. It is striking and solicits praise each time we entertain. John is really easy to work with, very flexible and his crew is great. The site was clean every day when they left. I cannot say enough about working with them.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a general contractor?

    When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

    When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

    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.

    How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

    A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

    Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

    What do general contractors charge?

    If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

    • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
    • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
    • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
    • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
