Working with Terry made our house renovation enjoyable. My wife and I were both project managers in commercial construction and I can confidentially say Terry is one of the best contractors we've ever worked with. Terry does a wonderful job explaining his competitive pricing and makes you aware of potential issues before they arise. He started off doing shoring work and sill replacement at our house and that turned into a much larger scope of work after watching them execute. I look forward to our next project with Terry and team!

There aren’t enough words to explain the quality of work from Gustavo and his team. He is easy to communicate with, incredibly talented, and such an honest man. Once we began the project, Gustavo recognized a few complications and difficulties with our job that we hadn’t noticed. Rather than cut corners, Gustavo addressed every single problem with honesty and quality, which resulted in a perfect end result. He also ended up handing a number of repairs that we encountered during the job, and he did so with great skill and workmanship. I would recommend Gustavo and his team to any friends and family, and I already look forward to working with him again.

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.

Garcia Remodeling Construction are punctual, diligent, and extremely thorough. We have an old 100 year old shotgun home and every single one of our windows leaked when it rained, letting water into the walls and creating horrendous mold inside and outside of the walls. Erix inspected all our windows and understood the problems immediately. Within a week he provided an estimate and we scheduled a start date for the project, which included fixing and sealing the windows and opening up our walls to remove and replace all the damaged wood and insulation. Erix and his colleagues took great care throughout the project, including moving and covering all our belongings to limit dust from the work. Most impressive is one would never know that our walls had to be cut open and replaced around the windows. They did an impeccable job spackling, painting, etc. We have peace of mind now, whenever it rains, that our house is completely sealed from the elements, and that we don't have to worry about mold any longer. I highly recommend Garcia Remodeling.

I hired Sage, Inc. based on the positive reviews of their tax preparation services and decided to roll the dice and take a gamble. I needed an updated resume to include my experience in the construction industry. Sage, Inc. met with me, listened to my requirements and requests and after a few tweaking emails my resume was completed in a very timely manner. It was clear, concise and well written. Their resume service was professional, efficient and reasonably priced. I would recommend Sage, Inc. to my family, friends or to anyone needing a resume writing service.

I am writing this review to express my satisfaction and to compliment the contracted repairs and enhancements work at my home by Shivers Nellon with Chase Remodeling and construction, Inc. following the Flood destruction which occurred in the August 2016 event. I was pleased with the bidding process and their work was all done very professionally and in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Mr. Nellon and company to home owners and Builders.

Javier's company is a great construction remodeling company. I am very picky; however, I could find absolutely no flaws in their stucco work of my house. It took me a while to find a reliable construction company to re- stucco my house. During this time I have had about ten construction companies that visited my house to submit a bid. After I went through all proposals, I decided to go with JJR Construction Company. Today my stucco looks great. I'm 100% satisfied. They were very detailed in a stucco repair and went through all promises (they did even more). Thank you so much Javier I could not be happier.

I used RSC Construction twice for repairs to my house from termites. I couldn't have been happier with their service! The owner and his employees were very professional. The work was great quality and they were very considerate of containing the mess that comes with sheetrock. Work was done in a timely manner. I would definitely use them again.

My wife and I asked Scott and his crew to repair our front porch columns, add railings, and do a complete re-build of the concrete/brick steps the led up to the porch. They not only did phenomenal (and fast) work - even though it was boiling hot in the dead of summer - but I thought the price was extremely reasonable. Further, Scott is very easy to work with and is more than willing to come back to answer questions and make minor fixes (some of the boards warped a little - a result of our humidity and nothing to do with the quality of their work). A number of our neighbors have used him for work on their homes, and everyone - including ourselves - have been imminently satisfied with his work. We highly recommend him for any repair or construction needs you may have.

RCS completed all of the finish carpentry on a house in Lakeview for me. It was an old house that needed special attention. RCS did a great job! I definitely recommend this company for any project. Also, they were very dependable.

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 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.  

    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 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 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 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.
