Fantastic experience from start to finish. Gianni contacted me immediately after I placed a request for fence contractors in my area. We met the following morning (he was there ahead of time!) he gave me an extremely reasonable quote and worked with my schedule to get it done. The fence is perfect. Now we are moving onto many other projects. I highly recommend Gianni and his team as they have both integrity and professionalism. Five stars!!!!

Finally able to leave a review for this great company! I hired them to repair my roof. I had recently had my roof repaired, so I thought. The contractor ripped me off and left holes in my roof which I didn't find out until our last big rain when it was raining in my house! A friend of mine referred Legacy Restoration to see if they could help me. I was nervous because I had been ripped off already. I contacted Legacy, and their response time was great. They were here within 24 hours of me contacting them. Their quote was so reasonable, I was shocked. They completed the job within a weeks time. They kept me informed through the whole process keeping me at ease. There was no disruption to my household during their work. They did a fantastic job. Even the insurance company rep who came to inspect the work was very impressed with the job Legacy did. I would highly recommend them. They will also be my go to company for any future issues I may have.

I met with Steve for an estimate. While I chose another contractor Steve would have fit the bill just as well, but I had to choose one. That said, Steve was very knowledgeable and fair on his pricing. I would defiantly consider him for any future work I have.

Mr. Gross, Bilt-Rite Buiders, was select to strip and finish an over 7000 sq. ft. concrete surface based on the competitive pricing and professional formatting of the submitted proposal.

He is a knowledgeable, hands-on professional with excellent communication, team-building and time-management skills. These qualities place Mr. Gross at the forefront of the competition.

Todd has been absolutely amazing. Home renovation can be very stressful so it's always a huge asset when you hire a contractor who is ready to work hard and do whatever it takes to get the job done and get the job done right. He is very knowledgeable in his craft and it definitely shows in his work.

Hard Hat Hustlers is the rare contractor whose work is excellent and ethics are above reproach. Their attention to the details showed in their work and overall approach to my project. I'm an engineer and that means a lot to me. I highly recommend them and will be sending friends and family their way.

Working with Bill has been a pleasure. He has been quick to respond and professional. We are working to repair a water damaged home long distance and he has been extremely helpful and has gone out of his way to meet with our insurance adjuster. He also is more than knowledgeable enough to discuss the relevant issues such as acceptable levels of moisture in the home. He has made the process much less stressful than if we were handling things on our own. I am a real-estate investor and finding people who do what they say they are going to do has become increasingly difficult. I am grateful to have found this company and plan on using their services for future projects. Additionally, I would sincerely recommend them to family and friends in need of a contractor.

We hired SEC HomeRemodeling to repair and remodel our bathroom floor and shower surround. The subfloor had rotted away under our existing 50 year old tile floor in our sole bathroom. Paul and Todd fixed the structural problems under our floor (repairing/adding floor joists, installing new subfloor) and now we have a beautiful, solid porcelain tile floor. They also remodelled our tile shower surround and installed a new tub and bronze shower hardware. We love our new bathroom. You can see the handmade quality work and the attention to detail that Paul and Todd put into our project. Our remodel came in on budget and was completed a few days earlier than the estimated time. We put our trust in this company, and they respected that trust. Overall, we had a great experience with SEC Home Remodelling, and we will use them for future projects.

Stephen and Dixiana Trosclair 13964 JR Drive Walker,Louisiana 70785 I was introduced to Ed when he was with United Built Homes. My first impression of Ed was exceptional. All throughout the build of my new home Ed was in constant contact with me. Always checking on his contractors and asking if I needed anything on a daily basis. Also with Ed being a God fearing Christian, that was an absolute blessing to me and my wife. My wife and I have been in our new home for more than a year now and even though Ed no longer works for United Built Homes, He still kept in touch with us always asking about our home. When we were looking for a home to build I honestly believe God sent us to United Built because of Ed. Ed will always be in our hearts and in our prayers.

BRIGGS construction provided great service. We made an appt for the contractor to come out and give us an estimate. He was very honest and knowledgeable about what the cause of our water damage could be. He explained what he would need to do to fix it. He completed the job once we agreed on a date and provided some useful tips to help us as new home buyers as well BRIGGs is a name and number I will put in our home repair keepers file.

Installation of a storm door. They came equipped and ready. Attention to detail was used from the start. They definitely didn't rush the job and took their time doing things right. Their installation actually looked better than the previous old install. Pricing on the job was the lowest I was given. I wouldn't hesitate to contact them first on any other jobs I may have. Don't look over these contractors.

I was very apprehensive about starting the 600 sq. feet concrete removal work we needed after hearing so many horror stories about contractors, but after meeting with Job, I decided to go for it. The price he charged was extremely competitive (beat our other bids by almost HALF) and he completed the job quickly. I have already recommended him to some of my neighbors who were impressed with the speed and quality of his work. If you need concrete removed, you would be foolish to hire anyone else to do you work.

        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.  

        Why should you hire a contractor?

        Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
