Nick and James were awesome!! Extremely professional, and hard working!! Due to some imperfections on the box Gazebo kit (no fault of theirs), they managed to work through all obstacles. We are very much appreciative of their hard work and dedication to our project, and would have no hesitation in hiring them again!!! Thanks again to you both!!!

Buying a home can be stressful but buying our home was overwhelming. The home I bought ended up having mold and water damage throughout 3 floors. All of the damage was discovered on the night before closing, after extensive rains in the area, exposing the longstanding water and mold issues. I attempted to get help and quotes from multiple big name companies. These companies were only able to offer me long waiting times for assessments and quotes only to fix the damage, not the cause. Hugh from Jacobs ladder was one of the 2 people who showed up the day I called, and the only person able to fix the cause of all my problems. The repairs for the damages were done through a negotiated insurance claim through the agency selling the home. I don’t deal often with insurance claims and it all seemed over my head. Hugh helped me negotiate the deal, explaining in detail what was being asked, offered, and done throughout the 2-month long project. I never felt like I was being mishandled, lied to, or ripped off. My personal background makes me distrusting of people. As a veterans wife, I have been a single woman and single mom while he was deployed. During those times, I have been the victim of sales targeting because of my lack of male representation, but Hugh and his teams respectfulness and honesty put all my fears at ease. The number one thing I appreciated about this business is that they do exactly what they say. Their actions spoke louder than all that was told to me. The team employed by Hugh was always respectful of my family, my time, my home, and even my pets. I never felt like I had to stay and babysit to be sure my property was safe, or that work was actually being done. If there ever was a miscommunication Hugh or his team were always happy to explain things to me until I understood. I never felt like I couldn’t ask questions or that my presence was a complication, which I have felt dealing with other contractors before. Hugh was present throughout the entire project as an active participant in the work, not just a figurehead boss showing up occasionally. Hugh and his company took a devastating situation and made it manageable. From the help managing the insurance claims, which he did seamlessly, communicating with all the parties in the process, which he did efficiently, to understanding the codes for the area, which he knew immediately, to reconstructing the damaged property back to normal in a timely manner, all of these things were done in a fashion that left me feeling assured. I am beyond happy with the finished product and had it not been for them we would have had to walk away from this home. Before them, this house was not livable. They saved our dream home and made it better, safer, and healthier than before. It is refreshing to see an honest company that does exactly what they say; I would recommend them to anyone in need of repairs. I am a volunteer reference for Jacob Ladder disaster and recovery contractors, I receive no benefit from this reference; I give it because the end product and experience was excellent. I give permission to allow all photos of our renovation to be used and would speak to those in need of a reference to use this company.

    The experience I had with Roger Blunk was outstanding on both jobs he did for me. The first job was expanding an elevated deck at the back of my home. 15 feet in the air, and the work was done to the design I created. It was handled safely and professionally. He is a certified master carpenter, and it shows in his competence and finished work. Money wise, his price was thousands of dollars less than estimates I received from 2 other Lexington construction companies. He provided me with his insurance & license papers, and got the proper permits for the project. The second job was converting a 3' X 3' concrete stoop front porch with no roof into a old fashioned southern 6' x 15' porch, with an extended roof. He designed a roof system that blended into the old roof, and matched the style of the home. The new porch had electrical outlets and a ceiling fan added, as well as 2 entrances, and a classic southern post and rail system. All of the exposed wood except the floor were wrapped in white aluminum, blending everything with the white siding on the house. The comments from neighbors as well as complete strangers have been outstanding. I will not hesitate to use Roger again in the future.

    The first step of the steps on my front porch broke away from the other steps; the second step was starting to break away; the bricks were falling off the steps. When JFiggs removed the first and second step, he noticed the underlying concrete steps were not done correctly. He fixed the concrete steps and replaced the bricks, and the steps look good as new. JFiggs showed up on the days he said he would, did an excellent job, and did the job for the price quoted (even though he did not find out about the bad concrete job under the steps till after he started). I highly recommend this company for any one who needs masonry work done.

    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.  

    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 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 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.

    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.
