The kitchen and bathroom of our 1950’s era home was in bad need of renovation after so many years of use. Bay Builders and Remodeling, Inc. came forth as providing a “one-stop-shop” of services and expertise which are required to perform such a renovation. Isaac, our project manager, was a very enthusiastic yet pragmatically realistic representative for his company. He guided us through our wishes for the kitchen and bathroom while keeping us grounded in terms of good design, code restrictions, space, and financial limitations. Through his company, he assigned the various sub-contractors to perform the necessary work effectively and efficiently. Dealing with a home of this age, one needs to realize that when the walls are removed, one often finds unexpected difficulties. Isaac was not the kind of contractor that “sugar coats” adverse situations — he was forthcoming, told us the grim news in face to face, while directing our strict attention to any health issues, current building code requirements, and protecting the over-all investment issues of our property. Isaac has a strong sense of ethics and responsibility towards his customers. He takes his job very seriously and he believes that the customer comes first: he is there to help them with their wishes — no matter how difficult that they might become at times.See more

My parents has a property in Mountain View, CA for over 20 years and they decided its time for the house to be updated(hasn’t been remodeled for 30 years). They gave me the task to find a contractor and I started to look for contractors and scheduled a week of interviews. After I interview 2-3 contractors I met Tal and Guy with Decor Builders. We had a click from the 1st meeting and I felt I can trust them to execute the project for me. They came for the 2nd meeting with a very detailed proposal and paid attention to every little detail I asked(I needed them to take care of rough and finish materials). After 3 months that we remodeled the house completely- 2 bathrooms, kitchen, flooring and re-paint the house I can say with full confidence that I made the best decision I could have made. Tal and Guy were great and the crew were clean, productive, professional and the most important finished on agreed time. Definitely 5 STARS to Decor Builders!See more

I had my kitchen upgraded (cabinets and counters) and went through My Construction Group. Interesting concept as this is a startup company who does the planning and then manages the construction phase. The planning part was great. They have really good designers and their software really helps you visualize how the kitchen will look. You can also change the look around to make sure you are happy with the design. The process is where I had some problems, but all were fixed to my satisfaction. Their overall time frame wasn't longer than other contractors promised, but it was nice to know there was a company with investors backing the whole process. They were also one of few contractors that would take my small job.See more

Phillip Price Construction did an amazing job on my home addition and remodel. My wife and I had never remodeled a house before and were apprehensive about selecting the right contractor. Once we met Phil and his son Nick we were very impressed with their quick and clear communication. They were very knowledgeable and went over their itemized quote with us. Once they started they flew through each phase of construction constantly updating us and keeping our decisions on track. All the worries and horror stories we heard about contractors were laid to rest very quickly once we started the project. We really got to know them over the 5 months we worked with them and really enjoyed the whole process. They truly made the process a lot easier than we had imagined. When it was all said and done they came it right on budget and a little before we expected. We could not be happier with our new home and the fantastic job Phil, Nick, and their sub contractors did. We highly recommend them and would never use any other contractor.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

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 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.  

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.
