We got in contact with 221 Construction through the website and hired him to replace our shingle roof with a composite one. Our experience with 221 Construction was awesome. Don returned our calls very promptly, answered all our questions and even some we didn't know we had. His extensive knowledge and experience made us comfortable choosing his company. We took a long time picking a company and kept changing our mind but he never got frustrated with us. He was very friendly, courteous and thorough with his explanation of the roofing process. He was true to his bid price, finished the work on time and left no mess. We are very happy with the results and excellent service we received. We look forward to doing business with them again in the future and would definitely recommend 221 Construction to others. Thank you!

Matt did a terrific job building a porch on the front of my home. I gave Matt a rough idea of the design and he implemented just as we wanted. I appreciated the attention to detail and Matt's willingness to make everything right.

Job: Business startup/tenant finish in Shawnee Kansas What Went Well: Had a plan, had funds, how hard can it be... (Hard!)Started with City Planning, immediately determined that I was lost and in over my head, I needed expert help and needed it now! Looked for Architect and read the following profile for Bob Del Popolo: No project too small to bring your dream to reality. I pride myself with on time and with in budget and have worked with a multitude of General Contractors in the Kanas City area. I specialize if you want one stop shopping with the Design+Build experience domestically and internationally. My fees are competitive but offer a strong sense of integrity, leadership and communication skills. All true! I was blessed to find an individual that was experienced, professional, reputable, honest, tenacious, and had my (the client) best interest at the forefront of the project. I would be out of money and out of time if I had not found/contacted Bob Del Polpolo. This is the first review I have ever written for anyone and or anything! Chris Billings 4/15/15

Alex and Josh were extremely professional! Tarps were put down from the front door all the way to the master bathroom! They fixed my subfloor properly, installed new plumbing for my drain and shower valves, poured a concrete custom shower pan and installed walls ready for tiling! Very hardworking professionals who generally care about you as a homeowner and the outcome of the job!

Ed did such a great job listening to what I needed and coming up with the best plan for our area, budget and time frame. He was very thoughtful about his work and was very transparent with me about what could be done with both projects. Ed is the first person I call and the first I refer for all my home projects. Which seem to multiply!

I have had Brandon/KC Renovation Concepts do several jobs for me ranging from building a fabulous deck to replacing all of the windows in my home. Brandon is both professional and detailed in the work that he and his crew perform. It is very hard to find someone who cares so much for the customer and takes pride in their work like Brandon does. What is great about this company is that they will take most jobs, big and small. I will continue to refer all of my friends and family to KC Renovations Concepts! Sandy Hall

Todd knows what he's doing, and he did exactly what we asked for. We had him build a small add-on to our house, and we knew in general what we wanted, but we expected Todd to make the decisions about how to make it happen, and he did. It turned out exactly the way we pictured it in our heads before starting. We will definitely use Todd again if we have contracting projects in the future.

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.
