In August we had the Jokela group renovate a small bathroom in our house in Kalamazoo which was built in the 1950s. They removed the very old black-and-white checkered tile from the walls and then beautifully replastered them. The rest of the renovation (vanity, tub, surround, floor) went extremely well and my wife and I decided to ask for their help with another house we used to live in and still own. It is an old house in Lansing (built around 1920s). It needed a lot of work; Plaster, kitchen, roof, painting, carpet complete w floor plan changes in bath and kitchen, siding repair and more. It has been difficult in the past for me to find a full-service general contractor with the experience and the know how to solve problems in an older home like this. Many will simply not return my calls. Houses this old and older were often not built to accommodate modern developments in rooms like bathrooms-so redoing one in a house like this can be problematic. The Jokela group makes it look easy. More importantly, if and when unforeseen issues arise Dennis Jokela is quick to communicate and discuss options. Also, there were times when he noticed issues and made adjustments based on his experience and know-how that were right on track. I enthusiastically recommend Dennis and his crew for general contracting work. Especially if like myself if you have had trouble finding contractors who are knowledgeable about and willing to work on small, older homes.

Matt completed several tasks around the house, from mounting a TV above the fireplace to replacing and repairing wood trim in various rooms. He was focused and professional. I will hire him again.

Michael is a top notch professional in his field. He understood what was needed and performed past my expectations. Excellent attention to detail. I would recommend him and his company to anyone. I am planning on using Michael for all of my CAD/drawing needs in the future. It was great working with him.

    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.
