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!

We hired John to fix and finish the interior wooden stairs, bannister, baulsters and landing of our home. Our house is over 100 years old, and we're pretty sure they're original, so they were in rough shape. He did an amazing job! He listened to us when we said we wanted to keep as much of it original as possible, and kept us updated throughout the project when unexpected issues came up so that we could be part of the decision making process. The stairs no longer creek or wobble. I feel like he left the aged original beauty of the wood, but made it alot more safe to have in our home. The work was finished on time and in budget, even through a snow storm. We'd be happy to use him again.

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 recently hired Northeast Construction to paint a room for us. Their painter was so quick and the job looks amazing! The initial contact with the owner was very professional. He came out personally and went over the job and had a painter here the next day. We were so impressed that we are having them paint a few more rooms and possibly some custom cabinets. A+!

I had Master Jerry Construction do a bunch of work throughout my home (interior reframing, exterior decking/stairs, trim, and two exterior concrete pads). Long story short- they got the job solidly done and all on schedule, which I'm pretty happy with. Great communication every step of the way. Brian, the owner, is really proud of the work his firm does and it shows.

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.

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.

Russ and his team was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to my inquiry (leveling my floors for a floating wood installation) and even adjusted his projects to fit my tight timeframe. He provided tips for other renovations we are doing throughout the house and even allowed up to borrow tools needed to do so. we have worked with several contractors over the last few weeks and Russ by far was the more professional.

We hired Joe to redo our old stairs in our home. They needed A LOT of work and he did an unbelievable job- custom fitting each stair, working with me to determine a color and even increasing the size of the stairs to give us a bit more room. He was extremely respectful of our home - very neat and clean, always closing doors when going in and out, etc. Reallt appreciated his hard work and would definitely recommend him for any of your home jobs.

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Claire to photograph many of her commercial and residential projects. I can tell you from first hand experience that Claire is uniquely talented in both construction management and interior design. That means she is a valuable resource for clients to bring on board as early as the pre-construction phase as well as for the final interior design finishes. She brings her clients a comprehensive vision when she walks into a space from building it to decorating it. While on site with Claire and her clients, it is obvious from their interaction how much they enjoy Claire and their new space. And I enjoy photographing her work and working with her to visually communicate "Claire's Perspective".

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.

He arrived when he said he would, completed the job, including running to the hardware store for materials, cleaned up afterwards, and charged a very modest amount, considering he worked the entire day. An outstanding and diligent worker, I'll certainly use him again, and will recommend him to our friends.

This was one of the best Home Remodeling experiences we have ever had. We worked with Ely Jimenez of Del Cid Design and Construction. Ely does the best workmanship we have ever seen. He is wonderfully communicative and professional. He provided us with photographs of every single detail that he worked with. He was very flexible, patient, and creative. He transformed our old-fashioned bathroom into a beautiful, modern bathroom. He somehow fit a large, working washer and dryer into a closet. He is an excellent general contractor who works well with multiple sub-contractors. We 100% recommend Del Cid Design and Construction for any home remodeling task, no matter how big or small.

The job was to completely remodel my kitchen, including incorporating another room, opening the kitchen to the dining room, relocating the powder room and adding a mudroom. J.L. Stone was great. Very neat. They sealed off the construction and I was amazed at how little dust got through, even during demolition. They were very respectful of me living in my home during the remodeling. The specifications and allowances were clear. I wanted to be able to use the kitchen by the first day of school and they met my timeframe. Most important, the finished product was beautiful and still is, several years later. I was so pleased with the company's work that I hired them to build a patio and pergola in my backyard. I recommend this company without hesitation.

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.

My girlfriend an I recently purchased our first home. The deck needed repairing so we contacted Northwind Builders Corp to do the job. Owner, Andrew Balboni is young and ambitious. He got our deck remodel done quickly and neatly. My girlfriend is a bit of a neatfreak even with outside materials, so I am pleased to say that Northwind Builders crew is ontop of cleaning after each day of being on the job. If in the future my girlfriend and I need work done to our house I know who to contact. THANKS NBC!!!

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.
