Let me start by saying that I wish I could give Wayne 10 stars, but since I only have the option of 5, that will have to do. Our house is over 100 years old and we are preparing to paint the exterior again. Needless to say, we had quite a "honey do" list of odd repairs that needed attention. Clapboards that were broken or rotting, the railings on the front porch were falling apart, back stairs pulling away from the house, decorative trim that was rotting, brick foundation in need of repointing, new exhaust vents, and finally new doors. Wayne responded to my initial request in record time and stopped by later that day to give me an estimate. Of all the contractors interviewed, he was the only one that completely outlined the work needed with a full materials list and cost breakdown. Others were quite vague and wanted to repair or replace more than was necessary, turning the job into something larger than it really was. That is why I decided to hire Wayne, his straightforward honesty and winning personality sealed the deal. Wayne and his crew started the job immediately and completed it in good time. They cleaned up the yard after and disposed of all the waste materials as well. Earlier I mentioned the decorative trim, he had this ingenious product that was able to halt the rot and preserve as much of the original wood as possible because there would be no way to replicate the trim without spending a ton. This technique was also used on my kitchen bay window, which ended up saving me a fair amount of money in that area. Wayne also went out of his way to find a great deal for my porch door, I described what I wanted and he took care of the rest. Wayne also offered to come back and replace any clapboard that was questionable once the painter gets started. The other area where he excelled was the masonry. I actually contemplated doing the job myself, I'm so happy that I came to my senses and left that up to Wayne. He truly went above and beyond expectations. The brick foundation including the cement pad really needed help. Wayne fixed the grout as well as re-cemented the gap between the foundation and the pad, now when it rains really hard or when snow melts, the basement won't flood. Wayne had really good instincts and advice about tackling the different elements of our project. He approached the job as if he was the homeowner with a budget wanting to spend money wisely. I'm telling you, I can't say enough good things about Wayne and his crew at L & K Construction. I will definitely be using them again in the future.

I hired Jeff Thompson to design and build a custom beverage center, a personal work station and a built in linen cabinet in my powder room for storage. He worked with me on the design of all of these pieces and he had great creative ideas. His work is impeccable , the job site was always clean, the project was done in the amount of time he projected and for the price we agreed on. Jeff is very personable so it was a pleasure to have him in my home. I am so happy with the work he did for me. I would highly recommend his services

Eduardo and his team did an amazing job on our dormer addition/bathroom renovation. Its difficult renovating and building in an occupied home and he and his crew were nothing but gentlemanly, respectful and kind. They kept the house and work space as clean as possible and were very respectful of our private space. The project fell directly within the schedule allotted in our contract and true to his word, there were zero changes orders even as we adjusted elements along the way. Eduardo himself is a very easy person to work with. He is always available and will respond to any concern or need any time of the day or night. If you’ve ever done any sort of renovation, I don’t think there’s anything more highly to compliment than responsiveness and Eduardo scores a 10 in that category. The end result is the bathroom we dreamed off, inside and out. The tile work is amazing and we are equally impressed with the exterior finishing and detailed time spent matching the new to old on our 1890’s home. We would not hesitate to contact Boston Best Construction for future projects, knowing the time and attention we would receive. Other details of our renovation including pictures can be found at www.birdsofberwick.com Thank you, Eduardo!

Renovate upstairs of my house into an apartment. My house is 200 years old. There were many surprises that were uncovered as the work was performed, resulting in a lot of additional work and numerous headaches. Jeff never ceased to amaze me with his ability to evaluate, adapt, and resolve problems. He and his assistant Bob, did a great job, never cutting any corners. They were completely thorough in cleaning up at the end of every day. They also performed a multitude of other projects including installing an exterior, steel spiral staircase and creating a beautiful set of steps out of old cobblestones at the entry of the house. I highly recommend Jeff.

Mr. Andriello came to my condo to access an ice dam in a 6 unit building. He gave me a quote later the same day and was prepared to work the following day. He arrived at the designated time and completed the job within 4 hours. He removed all ice from the walkways that had fallen from the roof. In addition, he sprinkled ice melt on the walkways to ensure the safety of the owners. I am impressed with Mr. Andriello's professionalism and attention to details (applying ice melt). I recommend his services.

We hired Adam to remodel our kitchen and also build a new deck, and his work quality and efficiency far surpassed our expectations. Not only did Adam complete the project on time, he also managed to stay within budget, which was a daunting task considering the extent of our projects and our tight deadline. We are both first time home buyers and have no experience with a fixer upper house, but Adam easily won my trust when he gave me a quote and provided me with his action plan to deliver within my timeline. Adam was the only contractor out of the 6 others I called to give detailed breakdown of the costs. He also listened attentively to what I wanted. He really took the time and effort to understand what we expected from him and went above and beyond to make our visions become realities. I wouldn't have my dream kitchen without Adam's help. What I had was just a picture and a vague vision in my mind, but Adam guided me through the design process and executed with perfection! I had multiple projects going on at the time and he coordinated all of them so seamlessly, I was able to move into our new house and have a functional kitchen, something I didn't even think was possible. Adam and his crew always cleaned really well after their work, even my neighbors were impressed with the kind of care Adam had given to our property and needless to say, I've given my highest recommendation to Adam and pass along his contact to all my neighbors and friends. What I appreciate the most about Adam is his honesty, a rare trait to find in contractors I've dealt with. Adam delivers what he promises and he doesn't cut corners in his work. I just hope all the raving reviews wont get him too booked up for my future projects!

This firm turned out to be one of the better contractors I’ve used in recent years. As far as rehire, yes, if the bid was right of course. The work was clean and I was impressed there was no nickel and diming as I’ve experienced with others. I would say the value was above average for this reason. I am satisfied with my hire. Lastly, I have an 19 year old daughter who stays home after school most of the time, and with so many men on the job, everyone was extremely professional and not creepy, I think what really worked for then is that the Project Manger set the tone for how the operations must take place and no buts or ifs. So I am very thankful for their outstanding professionalism.

Baystate Group Associates recently finished our 750 sq foot basement and the end result far exceeded our expectations. Victor stayed engaged with my wife and I daily throughout the project and kept us updated on the progress daily. I don't think the basement would have come out as it did if Victor didn't make several great recommendations along the way in regards to the basement layout, fixtures, colors, and other specific details. The team's that were at our house at various times throughout the job made sure that everything was clean and spotless at the end of everyday. I highly recommend VIctor and Baystate Group Associates for any refinished basement, remodeling, or building needs.

Jerry put a new roof on our addition and existing home. He was professional and timely. The roof looks great and haven't had any issues with it. We were so happy with his work that we had him build block stairs and part of a wall that we didn't have time to finish. Also called him to do some painting. He does quality work in a timely manner. Will definitely use him again in the future.

Kebert with KOD Restoration responded promptly to my request for a ceiling tile job in Malden. He didn’t hesitate to let me know he had someone to connect me with. His honesty and generousity in this gesture is uncommon and greatly appretiated. He was gracious on the phone when I told him about the job and instead of taking it on then just subbing it out and making some profit for himself he connected me directly with his sub contractor for this type of job. While Kebert didn’t do any work at my home, I will certainly keep him in mind for future needs. Any homeowner will be lucky to work with an honest person like Kebert. Its clear his bottom line is taking care of clients and NOT taking advantage of them. I can’t thank Kebert enough for this kind gesture!

Christian did an amazing job on the crown molding in our new house. He was extremely responsive (we had a very little time to get the work done before moving in), listened carefully to what we wanted, provided his thoughts/expertise to ensure the finished product was what we wanted and did a meticulous job on the execution. Many of our early visitors have commented that the "crown molding makes the rooms" (Christian helped us with four rooms). We would hire him again without hesitation (in fact, we've already asked him to help us with several other projects and referred him to friends)!

Without question, we are very happy with Andrew Winter and would hire him again for our next renovation project. We hired Andrew (Drew) Winter to handle a kitchen, bathroom and laundry room renovation in our recently purchased home. After evaluating many contractors, including contractors recommended to us by family and friends, we decided to go with Andrew. From our first meeting we felt comfortable working with Drew. He was upfront and honest, provided fair pricing and a realistic payment schedule and was an excellent communicator. Many times answering my calls, text and emails before and after normal business hours. At the end of the day, he is the type of person that just wants to make things right. In a little less than 8 weeks, Andrew transformed our 1935s kitchen, bathroom and laundry room into a modern marvel. There were many obstacles along the way and living though a renovation can be very challenging, however Andrew went above and beyond to keep our home as functional as possible and we appreciated his honesty, guidance, positivity and dedication to our project and happiness. What started out as a few minor renovations to make our home more livable for a few years turned into what we would be happy to call our forever home. That being said, Drew is already talking about the house he is going to build for us in a few years.

Umberto designed my family's home, and I fell in love with the space that he created. He designed a multi-story brick home with windows that appear to wrap around corners and stretch nearly floor to ceiling letting in as much of the Boston sunlight as appears in the sky. Umberto's talent is obvious in his ability to marry two opposite characteristics. He created an interior with high ceilings and skylights that gives one the feeling of space and air while at the same time creating little nooks in different areas of the home that are cozy places where you can read a book or listen to music. The unique design of our home also allows us to entertain many friends and family with ease but at the same time is just perfect for everyday living. I just love how our home feels.

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.
