We are victims of the 2016 Flood of Louisiana. Initially we found contractors who were eager to rake us over the coals. So we sought the aid of Thumbtack to locate someone who would operate with integrity and professionalism. It was there on Thumbtack where we discovered Domingue Masonry. After a visit to the masonry website we decided to hire the Domingue's for several in home remodeling projects. Bottom Line is, if you're seeking quality, integrity, and professionalism, then these guys are what you're looking for. We are absolutely certain that the masonry work done at our home has raised its appraised value and enhanced its curb appeal. We've added an extensive patio with decorative bricks along and a partial wrap around walkway, driveway widening, and an Adobe Kiva fireplace just to name a few remodeling projects. Our home will never ever be the same since this flooding. In fact, it is more valuable now than it was prior to the 2016 flood. What a consolation the improvements made by these guys has been. Thank you John and Brandon. We tell any and everyone we meet about the quality and care you guys provide. A breath of fresh air they are. Look them up, you won't regret it. Excellent in all aspects of the business. Ken September 2016

Bill has done a couple odd jobs for me, including vinyl siding replacement, wooden fence work, and exterior door replacement. He was very nice and courteous, and was always good about a projected time of arrival and completion (not to mention more than fair prices). He was especially helpful in two instances where I needed work done almost immediately due to personal circumstances associated with my work. While I don't have any planned jobs currently left for Mr. Buchert to do, he'll definitely be the 1st person I call the next time I need some work done.

This guy came to our house to walk the job. I remember him. He was very professional, clean cut, and can communicate the job to the customer well. While I did not use him for the renovation, he was very much one of the top contenders. I am going to keep him in mind.

They were punctual and dependable, but mostly i liked that they seemed to really enjoy what they were doing which was renovating my home from flood damage. Mr Davis even custom built my lower cabinets to match the ones i had previously. He seemed to really have a passion for creating and designing the wooden railings around the front porch. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends and family a great overall experience for a good price as well. Thanks S&G Davis construction!

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.
