I had a relatively simple vinyl siding repair job I needed done and DE Carroll Construction was the only company that understood the simple nature of the work. The estimate and work were good and done promptly and quickly with effective communication.

I have worked with Eduardo and his team on several projects. The pricing is fair, he has comprehensive knowledge about the whole construction process and he is honest. There are often tactics in the industry where a contractor low-balls a price to get the job only to have change-orders down the road. That doesn't happen at Boston Best Construction. If attention to detail and a breathtaking completed project are what you want, be sure to give him a call.

I am extremely happy with the services I received from Crespo realty investments and construction . The work was outstanding it was done on time the contractors were professional precise and cleaned up every day The general contractor was easy to talk to very cooperative professional at all times I found a general contractor to be very responsive to my needs and if I wanted to make a change he was able to talk with me about what that would mean in terms of cost and labor and Materials but was always willing to work with me whatever I wanted to do. They were very predictable they had a start time or lunchtime and a cleanup time and I knew when the day was going to come to an end I appreciated their punctuality and the consistency. Most important of all the work was quality and I am very please with the outcome I would recommend Crespo realty investment and construction highly and absolutely I’m going to use them and my next home improvement

I needed a small repair job, flashing on my chimney. I contacted several roofing who did not return my calls. I then went thru thumbtack.com who put me in touch with northeast constuction. A representative of the company, Shawn, came to my home within 48 hrs, evaluated the job and gave a fair price. The job is expected to done within a week. Thank you thumbtack.com and northeast construction.

Great job at a great price. I love the retaining wall and concrete walk Fernando and the team at Disere construction did at my home. I needed a retaining wall to keep water from running into my driveway, even in the dead of winter they came out and built more than just a functioning wall, they created art! We couldn't be happier!

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.

We had our roof done with them. The owner of this business is a wonderful man. They responded to my initial call immediately and got an appointment within a few days for a free estimate. They came on time and the estimate was emailed to me within a few days. We decided to go with Rainstone construction because of their responsiveness. On the day of work they showed up on time, worked quickly and cleaned up after finishing. We found them reliable, professional with reasonable pricing. We enjoyed working with them and will surely recommend Rainstone to our friends.

My project involved a complete remodel of kitchen and powder room which include creating an open floor plan that changed the dinning & living rooms layout flow. The construction project was a tremendous success. The level of professionalism and commitment to executing the project as envisioned within the design plans was a major highlight. In addition the project ended with a complimentary comprehensive cleaning of the entire first flow area, simply put absolutely outstanding!!!

True professionals are as good as gold! I put off remodeling my home for years because I dreaded the hassle of dealing with contractors and designers. When I finally committed to having the work done, I went through at least 8 General Contractors and designers to find the right fit. Each of these was either overly expensive, or had overbearing personalities, or sounded like used car salesmen.... Until I connected with Byron Cuhna and Co. Byron runs a family operated construction company that handles all size jobs. Byron came in and helped my wife and I work through the design of a large addition 26x24 on with a two car garage and bedrooms/bath above it, as well as another 15x15 family room on the opposite side of the house. Byron not only gave us great design ideas, he helped us add features that would be more cost effective and efficient. Byron and his son Eric were on the job from start to finish, and made the experience of living in "construction" much more bearable, and at a price affordable enough that I can still pay my children's college tuition next year. I highly recommend Byron Cuhna construction, I will update this review with final before and after pictures of my house. Carmelo

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.  

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 is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
